A life style blog about having 28 days apart, then only 14 days together. The notorious long distance relationship and how I pass the time waiting for his 28 day work week to end and his proverbial friday to bring him home. This is me passing the time as a women in a serious relationship, whos other half is 2,000 kilometers away for 2/3's of the time.
So today I just did my go-to quick and easy look. I used the Naked2 Palette by Urban Decay however you can get similar colors just from the drug store!
I did my face makeup first, which I normally don’t but I did for the sake of the video. And don’t mind my hair and outfit, I usually like to do my makeup before doing my hair and putting on my outfit for the day! lol
So I thought I would make a post about my favourite hair care brand of all time… Klorane Laboratories
I have only used 3 differently products from this brand but I love it. I always get things I can put in my hair as a detangler/smoother/ heat protector after I shower, but they also have a wide range of shampoos and conditioners.
The great thing about this brand is that it uses nutrients from all natural plants and flowers, and there is something for every hair type! Here is a list of their hair ranges, and this can also be found at their website!
Unfortunately I think they have discontinued the original hair cream I started with but I did find a picture of this line. It used aloe Vera and it was great!
Then, I started using this magnolia detangler spray. It works well however I find that I used too much of it, it being in a spray bottle, and its kinda on the pricey side if I don’t get it on sale.
I am now using this desert date leave-in cream. It is amazing. It leaves your hair feeling super soft and shiny, like you just left the salon. It also smells amazing, and restores nutrients!
Well I hope this post is helpful for anyone looking to try out some new products! They can be found at Shoppers Drug Mart! Happy blogging!
So my regular go to mascara is the L’Oreal Lash Out Butterfly mascara but when I went to go pick up a new one I noticed L’Oreal had come out with 2 more products in the butterfly mascara line. I got the Voluminous Butterfly Intenza.
I got it in blackest black, as always. However I am thinking about getting a brown black for when I want to do a natural look.
I decided to just do a natural lid with no liner so you could really see how the mascara looks on its own!
I love it. L O V E love it. I love the way it easily spreads out my lashes and it doesn’t clump at all! I especially like that it gets all of my lashes, right down to my eyelid. I have naturally long lashes and I have a hard time finding mascaras that will actually get all of my lashes and not leave the bottom few millimeters mascara free.
So all in all, a great buy! I would recommend to anyone!
Happy blogging and happy shopping for new products!
So while pursuing shoppers to try and find a new spring color for my nails I found Sally Hansen Miracle Gel nail polish, and the best part about it? No heat lamp necessary. It was on sale for about 7 dollars at Shoppers Drug Mart so I thought I may as well give it a try instead of buying a cheap polish for a couple bucks like I was originally planning.
I chose it in the #370 “Sugar Fix” shade. I’m always drawn to pinks, purples, and blues, so its really just another shade of purple I’m adding to my collection but I still couldn’t be happier with the color! To finish the look off I decided to use the gold flakes nail polish I have from Aerie, you know the sister store of American Eagle that specializes in bras and underwear.
The Sally Hansen Miracle Gel polish label says it will last up to 2 weeks chips free. So you can all expect an update post about how long it really lasts. And considering how many coats had to do because I kept smudging them, (as you can all probably see in the pictures….), it should last at least a week, even with my retail working fingers tapping on the keys for half of my shift. We’ll see how it goes!
I do like the look this gold flakes nail polish gives, however I’m terrible at waiting for my nail polish to dry and I always smudge it. So I suggest if you’re going to use it, make sure your original coat of polish is COMPLETLY dry and do it at a time you can just sit and watch an episode of a show or something and wait for it to also dry completely. Don’t be like me and do your nails shortly before going to bed and wake up to wide them all finger print.
Well I hope you all like my nail look for the week and let me know what you think of the look and or the polish’s!
So today while I was perusing WalMart finding little things to make the apartment more homey, I came across 4 dos lip balms that I don’t have… and one especially I needed to have.
I already had a few, some that I couldn’t track down for the picture. My favourite, that is in the glove box of my car, is the melon one. The light green one if you don’t know what one I’m talking about, its just so fresh and fruity and I love the way it smells.
Today I picked up blueberry acai, summer fruit, passion fruit, and most excitingly vanilla mint. I love mint, but unfortunately I found that the chocolate mint one I already have burns my lips abit if I put to much on. So I’m hoping the vanilla mint one will be better!
The first 3 are all deliciously fruity smelling and will be perfect for spring! The passion and summer fruit are pretty similar but I feel like the passion fruit one has dark berries in it and the summer fruit is more tree fruit and red berries, if you know what I mean.
And on the note of the vanilla mint…. IT IS AMAZING! It smells even better than the chocolate mint and doesn’t burn my lips at all! And I love how cute it looks with the swirl! Definitely my new favourite and a definite recommend for a new flavour of lip balm!
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.
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 had been using a foundation and powder combo from Revlon, that was actually the same number as this one, 110 (I’m pasty, I know). 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.
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
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
These 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!
