Drug store makeup haul!!!!

During the first week after Mr. F goes back to work I feel very lost.. and I often find myself at the mall. Anyways, I underwent some retail therapy in the cosmetics section of Shoppers Drug Mart.

My new goodies
My new goodies

I love going through the aisles picking out new products to try and eventually, hopefully, find the best for me. I got some new brands, products, and colors than Ive normally tried and I’m going to let you all know how they worked out!

New Foundation and Powder – Maybelline New York “Fit Me! Matte + Loveless” liquid foundation and powder.

I do like the coverage this foundation offers, however I’m a little worried, as I always so when I get a new foundation, that it may be a little too light for my skin. Let me know what you guys think when I post a picture at the bottom of this post of my finished makeup look!

New Blush and Trying out Bronze –  Covergirl “Checkers” blush in the natural rose shade & Essence “Sun Club matt bringing powder”.

I do really like the blush! Normally I go with a little darker pink/ rose color for my cheeks but I like this light pink for a really sweet look. I also hadn’t used boozer before but I decided to give it a try and I’m liking what I see! When I got home with the boozer I realized that it did say right on it that it was for darker skin, and I have very, very pale skin, so I was kinda worried I just made a useless purchase. However, I actually really like it and I think the darker color of the powder is perfect for the subtle use and look I tried to accomplish.  So all in all a good purchase!

New eyeliner – Essence Gel Eyeliner and Gel Eyeliner Brush.

image (4)So I normally use a liquid eyeliner with a felt tip, but I thought I would try my hand at gel liner. And the thing about eyeliner is it can sense fear and will thus nor perform the way you want it to. Obviously its just a matter of getting used to it, because after a couple attempts and rehashes of the face the night I first bought it I started to get the hang of it.  So,  I do like it I just think I’m going to need some more practise before I can call myself the eyeliner goddess I can with a felt tip liquid eyeliner… lol.  However though I’m not really a fan of this brush, I think its just a little to thick, but I have an old brush I never knew what was for before, that I think I may use… now to dig it out of my old makeup bin at my parents…

New lipstick –  Rimmed London  Airy Fairly Lipstick #070

image (2)I bought this shade because it reminds me of this lipstick I loved that met an unfortunate end smushed up at the bottom of my purse. I like this color because it is natural enough to just seem to accentuate the natural color of my lips.  This  one, if too much applied does seem to get alittle more pinky than I would hope but that’s just an issue of product application, Im sure ill be fine with just a quick swipe over the lips. Which is really why I bought it, to have a perfect lipstick to use on the go.

Not new eye shadow – Maybelline and Revlon Palettes

imageThese aren’t new but I thought I would add the  drugstore eyeshadow I used to complete the drugstore makeup look haul. I just used toe neutral shades but I do love all the shades I have in these palettes.

So here is the finished look with my new makeup, let me know what you guys think of my new stuff!

Does Netflix cause insomnia? / My top shows atm

Once again I am finding myself wide awake in the middle of the night, even though I spent the entire day dreaming of my bed (or couch in this case as when my bf’s gone I tend to just let myself fall asleep on the couch watching Netflix instead of moving to the cold empty bed).

As I sit here munching on pizza pockets and listening to Mr. F’s snoring, as he likes to stay on the phone all night while he sleeps… I can’t help but wonder if the reason I can’t sleep is that I’m to invested in my shows….

Knowing this, however, I am still going to stay up to watch the next episode of Grey’s Anatomy. So I may as well put my Netflix addiction to good use and make a list of the top shows to watch entire seasons of in one sitting.

1) Unbreakable Jimmy Schmitz – This is a hilarious little show that makes fun of all the social media crazes, and the theme song will be stuck in your head for weeks. The leading actress is Ellie Kemper, and I was reluctant to watch this show at first because I normally have an extreme dislike for her characters, however this character has an excuse for being a space cadet, and its really quite endearing. Deffinetly a good silly show to watch with some girlfriends.

2)Wentworth Prison – This show makes Orange is the New Black look like an episode of Ned’s declassified school survival guide, but for prison. It takes place in a women’s prison in Australia, and a place like that prison is more of a reason than the bird eating spiders to not take a visit down under. I’m just kidding, I would love to visit Australia one day, but I’m just trying to convey how intense this show is. By the end of the first episode you’ll be dying to know what happens next I promise!

3)Last Tango in Halifax – This is a BBC show about two elder widows who were sweethearts back when they were teenagers, who have reconnected after 50 years via Facebook. The humour is dry but if that’s your taste you will really enjoy this show!

Well I hope this mini list of good shows on Netflix will lead some of you to try out some of these great shows!

Hello bloggers

This being my first post I guess I should explain why I chose to start a blog….

As the title of my page suggests, I have 28 days between proverbial Fridays.

This is because my boyfriend (common law husband if we’re getting technical) works for 28 days straight, 2,000 kilometers away from our home in Peterborough Ontario. He works in Red Lake Ontario as a diamond-core driller. He takes a flight from Toronto to Winnipeg, and then from Winnipeg to Red Lake. So there’s no coming home after work.

There is a plus side to this though; when he does finally come home he is home for 14 days straight. So I might have the week from hell waiting for him, but every time he comes back its like the best weekend of my life, every time.

Thus, this is a memoir of how I live my life as a women in a serious, committed relationship, who’s other half spends two thirds of his time working away in a different time zone.
