Dior Liquid Eyeliner – Black 

I was so use to using a pencil eyeliner but I wanted to move on to bigger and better things when it came to eyeliner. I decided to give Dior a try since I already love their mascara so much, boy was I right! For a first time user it was pretty easy to hold and get the hang of it! I got this at Sephora for $45.00.

Quo Dual Ended Blackhead Remover

Don’t you just love popping zits or blackheads with your fingers? Yep, we all do but it’s actually bad for your skin. Quo from Shoppers Drug Mart has a tool that’ll do it for you without harming your skin or pushing more bacteria into your face (assuming you clean your tools)!

Hair Care Favourite: 

silver-shine-shampoo-300mlMilk_Shake Silver Shine Shampoo

Ever since I became a blonde (almost white) I’ve needed a purple shampoo to help keep it blonde! Silver Shine is a purple shampoo, for those of you who don’t know what a purple shampoo is, I will explain!
When you lift your hair (bleach and tone, highlights, balayage) there is a natural remaining pigment. If your hair is black, dark brown, medium brown, or light brown when you lift your hair it will lift red. If your hair is a dark blonde, medium blonde or light blonde it will lift red/orange, orange, and yellow/orange. Now if your hair is very light or almost white your hair lifted to yellow and pale yellow, which brings you to where my hair was before we toned it – yellow. To get rid of the yellow your toner will have to have violet in it (ash). Now sorry to break it to you but toner FADES, no matter what a hairstylist tells you it will fade, unless you buy shampoo that will help it. I’ve toned my hair once and used this purple shampoo (to keep yellow away) and it works wonders but I will have to tone my hair soon because it only does so much. You can get this at Trade Secrets for $28.00.

The North Face Agave Full Zip Fleece

I have The North Face basic rain jacket, that means its just the outer shall and it’s not exactly the warmest for Canadian weather so I got this to go under it! It’s a mid-light fleece, so it’s not their heaviest but not their lightest either. You can get this at The North Face for $130.00.

Spirit-Z8-Treadmill

Free Spirit Treadmill

This is more a love-hate relationship but I am a lucky woman who gets to have a treadmill at her home so I don’t have to go to the gym…yet. Mine is very old but it works! Now I’m not saying you need to go out and buy a treadmill I’m just saying get up and MOVE!

Diorshow Maximizer 3D Lash Primer

I was in Sephora with my sister one day when a representative from Dior was there talking to customers, she happened to talk to me about my mascara when she told me about this. At first I was skeptical but later one I decided to give it a shot. I don’t know what it is about it but my eye lashes are looking bomb lately! I would highly recommend this, it works so well with their mascaras. I got this at Sephora for $37.00.

Glysomed Hand Cream

Now I know I’ve written about this hand cream before but I’m writing about it again because I’m Canadian with dry skin because of Winter! I always end up going back to this hand cream because it works so well and a little goes a long way. You can get a 3 pack of the small ones for $3-$4 at Walmart.

Oribe Signature Conditioner

This conditioner goes with the shampoo I wrote about a couple months ago. It’s just your everyday conditioner but it smells amazing and makes your hair super soft after giving a good scrub. Now I live in Canada so you can get this at Holt Renfrew for $60.00.

Vega Essentials Shake – Chocolate

With trying to be healthy I thought I show try a shake but I didn’t want your typical protein shake. I researched Vega and saw this shake you can use as a breakfast or a snack and you can even bake with it! Now I’m not a vegan or anything but I liked what I was reading so I thought I’d give it a try and I’m pretty impressed. It actually tastes good and doesn’t smell bad like regular shakes. You can get this in a lot of stores but I got mine at Walmart for $37.00.

Dior Diorshow Black Out Waterproof Mascara

Now I know I wrote about a different mascara before but I wanted to try something new and fell in love with this one. Dior mascara is a little bit on the expensive side but it works like a charm. My eyelashes are a little bit long so when I apply this I need to do a tiny clean up job. It goes on extremely easy but it’s difficult to come off. It doesn’t make your eyelashes clump together, they will still feel like you normal soft lashes. When taking this off you will 100% need a good eye make up remover, but that’s the best part about this product – you pay a lot of money for waterproof and you expect it to stay on. You can get this at Sephora for $31.00.

Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes and Lips

With my new mascara I needed to get a great make up remover. I wrote a post on my Facebook asking all the ladies which one I should try, a lot of people said Avon and make up wipes but I don’t have an “Avon person” and I want something stronger than wipes. My mum came home with a sample she got, so I gave it a try. This worked like a charm, the make up came right off. You do have to give your face a rinse after because it is oil but your eyelashes are the same, like you never had make up on. You can get this product at Sephora for $22.00 but I’m sure other stores have this.

Hair Care Favourite:

Goody-Tanglefix-Brush

Goody TangleFix – Bright

My friend had one of these at work and I’ve seen them online before. The chlorine dries out my hair, which makes it get tangle easily. Normal brushes hurt and hard to get the knots out, this brush works with my hair so it’s not pulling. It gets the knots out well, the only problem I have with it is, it’s not a styling brush. I found when I used it it makes my curly hair go straight and puffy. That’s fine when I’m at work because most likely I’ll be going back into the water but if you were to use it at home before you go out it wouldn’t be ideal. You can get the Goody brush at Walmart for $5.00 – $6.00.

Dynamite Cami with Buttons – Black

I wrote about this shirt in a different colour on my Spring Much Haves. Well I bought it! It really is comfortable, it has adjustable straps and of course the buttons on the front. You can dress this shirt up or down for whatever the occasion is. You can get this shirt/cami at Dynamite for $24.95.

Google Unveils Updated Nexus 7 in Push Against Apple, Microsoft

Google Chromecast

I originally bought this so I could put the movies and shows I watch on Showbox onto my TV because I was getting tired of holding up my tablet for two hours. When I got it, it was easy to set up but connecting my Showbox to Chromecast was a whole different story.
The latest Showbox update prevents you from using Chromecast, it asks you to download some MX player, I tried, it was a pointless circle of downloading the same player. I looked on good old Reddit, they told me to download a program called Growbox, it acts as the MX player but without having to download a million things and still no connection to Chromecast. Growbox works, and now my Chromecast it awesome again.
If you have one of the new Blue Ray players that has YouTube, Netflix and all those extras and don’t use Showbox or watch movies online then this product wouldn’t be ideal for you since it does the exact same thing as the Blue Ray player. If you do watch movies online and use Showbox then this product is for you!
You can get the Chromecast at Best Buy for $39.00.

Brita Hard Sided Bottle

I don’t like the taste of water, I think it has a weird taste to it. I needed something that would help because water is good for you and lets face it, you need to drink it. My whole family uses Brita, even my cat prefers Brita water! There’s actually two different types, a soft sided and hard sided water bottle. The soft one is a squeeze bottle and the hard one is pretty much a straw. These bottles are great because they limit the amount of plastic bottles we use since they are reusable. The hard one is the bottle I own, you can get it at Walmart for $15.00.

1. Coach Wallet is a typical thing that every girl has I just wanted a good wallet.

2. Chapters agenda is something I use everyday to keep track of my life and what’s coming up.

3. Sephora Pocket mirror comes in handy when you don’t have anywhere to check your makeup or to see if you have anything on your teeth.

4. Travel Size Tums. Heart burn or an upset stomach just isn’t fun so carrying Tums helps.

5. I wear glasses, having the case is handy.

6. A Pen. You never know when you’re going to need a pen, signing a birthday card you had to pick up last minute or unexpected interview on your way home from work. Just in case right?

7. Tide to Go. No one is perfect, I get food or stains on my clothes all the time and this is a lifesaver, or should I say clothes saver?

8. Dior Mascara. I travel between my house, work and my boyfriend’s house at lot, I just keep it in one of the pockets on the side and I’m set.

9. Sephora Eyeliner. Keeping it on hand is easier than packing it every time I go out.

10. Ray Bans. I actually have two pairs of Ray Bans that I switch out from time to time. Summer is coming and the sun is bright and it’s a great fashion accessory.

11. Glysomed Hand Lotion. I hate when I wash my hands after going to the washroom then having dry hands and no lotion. This is just a little travel size you get can a 3 pack at Walmart.

12. Blistex Berry Chapstick. This is my favourite chap stick ever, I use it all the time and go thru them like crazy.

13. Pocket Purse Kleenex pack. I had this in my purse during the winter months because a runny nose isn’t fun, now it comes in handy for my allergies!

14. Travel Size Advil. Random headache? No fear this small pack comes in handy when you’re on the go.

15. Allergy Medicine. This travel size comes in handy since I’m on the go all the time.

16. Travel Perfume holder. I got this holder at Target Canada but they no longer exist here, all you have to do is pump in your favourite perfume and it’s there on the go.

17. Heart Shaped Coin Purse. I got this at Chapters but they no longer carry it, I don’t like having all my change in my purse to make it heavy so I put it in there.

18. Mini Brush. Comes in handy on a windy day or just when you have an unexpected sleep over at a friends house.

19. Trident Gum. Freshens breath and whitens teeth for those days when were really tired and maybe forgot to brush them! Oops.
