Breakup To Makeup Bag 

Awhile back I went shopping with my sister and found this at Sephora. It’s a makeup bag that reminds you no matter what happens in life, you can still truck on and be strong. There’s three different bags, mine is the one above, the others say, “Losing you hurt but losing my makeup bag would be a tragedy” and “Life is short, wear more makeup.” It’s a pretty good bag, I don’t have that much makeup so it all fits in the one bag but if you do have a lot of makeup it’s a good travel makeup bag. These bags are vegan and cruelty-free so they’re badass. You can get these bags at Sephora for $30.00.

Up & Up Sport Sunscreen Continuous Spray – SPF 30

Summer is officially here so we need to protect ourselves! I say this a lot because I have ginger skin even though I’m not a ginger, I burn easy and burns hurt and can turn into cancer and what not. We just don’t want that. In my opinion you don’t need to spend a lot of money on sunscreen, they all have the same thing in it just different brands. For your face, maybe you should spend a little bit more on it but for the rest of your body whats the point? The only thing you really need to focus on is the SPF. Ever since Target was in Canada I used theirs but they are no longer here as you guys all know! I don’t even know how much this was because I got it awhile ago but it’s not expensive at all.

Aveda Sun Care After-Sun Hair Masque

I live for this stuff! I wrote about the shampoo awhile ago in one of my monthly favourites but here is the masque that you use after the shampoo. As I’ve said before I work in a pool so my hair gets damage easily. The shampoo gets all the chlorine, salt, and product build up out and this restores your hair. Ever since I bought this again after awhile of not using it my hair hasn’t turned blonde from the chlorine bleaching it, and my hair stays soft. I use it after every time I come out of the water, and on Thursday I use it about 3 times in one day. You can get this at Aveda for $27.00.

Aveda Singular Notes: Vanilla Absolute

A couple months ago when I went shopping with my sister we stopped at Aveda to get chlorine shampoo, they had these sweet donation that if you donated $10 you get a back massage. When they did it you get to pick the smells you want to relax you and what not. This is the one I used, it smelt amazing, it made the massage THAT much better, it was honestly heaven. You can get this at Aveda for $27.50.

Home Favourite:

Nexus7

Nexus 7 Tablet

I got this a couple years ago for Christmas from my loving mum. This is such a badass gift because you can do so much on a tablet, I watch movies all the time on here or use it when my phone needs to be charged. It’s great, I don’t believe they sell this one anymore but they have new versions! Any electronic store will have tablets for sale.

Music Favourite:

Cheerleader by OMI

I’m sure you’ve heard this song before since it’s all over the radio but I’m in love with this song, it’s a great beat for the summer! Check it out.

Fujifilm Instax Share Printer SP-1

I heard about this awhile ago and I thought it was just one of those things people make up and it doesn’t actually exist. I was actually in Best Buy one day and I saw it, I grabbed it right away and bought it with a couple of films to go with it. This thing is amazing, there’s an app you can download and it works wireless through WiFi. I’ve printed off about 12 pictures from my phone from this. It’s great and it goes well with the cameras they have.

March Favourites 2015!

up & up Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes

I didn’t have a set makeup remover until Target came into Canada, I’ve always loved their up & up brand so I tried them out and fell in love. One side is your normal cloth, then the other side is like a paper towel with some sort of pattren to get a scrubbing action. It got most of my waterproof mascara off but that seems impossible with makeup now and days. Sadly Target is leaving Canada so I’m back to square one and have to find a new wipe. Never fear though, I have one or two in mine but I’ll leave that for next months when I’m try them out. You can get these at Target for $3.84.

After Inked Tattoo Cream

I know this one is pretty weird and probably no one is going to buy this unless they’re getting a tattoo or already have a tattoo but I wanted to share anyways. I got a tattoo almost a year ago now and I needed a cream to keep it all healthy and such. This is the cream I purchases from the shop but you can get it online aswell. This stuff smells amazing, it’s animal cruelty free and vegan, and not to mention dermatologist tested. If this came in huge lotion bottles I would use this all over my body. You can get it online at http://www.afterinked.com or Whole Foods, a 7ml is $5.00 or a 3oz is $20.00.

Hair Care Favourite

Aveda Sun Care Hair and Body Cleanser

It’s finally getting warmer in Ontario, Canada so thought of beaches and pools are popping into everyone’s minds. I however am always in a pool and we all know chlorine kills your hair. This stuff is a lifesaver, or should I say hair saver? It removes chlorine and salt, plus product build-up, you don’t need a lot and it smells amazing! You can get it at Aveda stores, 250ml for $21.00, it’s expensive but it works.

O.P.I Big Apple Red Nail Polish

This is my favourite nail polish ever. O.P.I is a great brand that awesome colours, that last a long times. I mostly where this colour on my toes since my boyfriend thinks it sexy but I do wear this colour a lot! It’s just bright and fun! You can get this at most beauty stores for about $10.00 – $12.00. The store Trade Secrets is the best place to get O.P.I in my opinion.

Pledge Multi Surface Everyday Cleaner

This stuff is the best and only cleaning supply you will ever need/want. You can use this on granite, metal, wood, mirrors, glass and eletronics! My personal favourite is mirrors, way better then Windex. It smells great, cleans great, it’s just a great product all around. You can get this pretty much anywhere I think for roughly $6.00 – $8.00.

Instax Mini Photo Album

Yes! You read me right! Now the actual Fujifilm people have not created accessories for their cameras besides one crappy case, I got this off eBay for $10.00! It takes awhile to shop to your house but it’s totally worth the wait. It holds 64 photos plus one on the front, it hold any of the camera pictures besides the wide film, you need to type in wide photo into eBay but they do have them. I love mine and will probably order more once this one is closer to getting filled up. They also come in all different colours!

Thanks for reading! Let me know if you tried out my products and if you liked them or what your monthly favourites are!

February Favourites 2015!

Make Up Favourite

tarte Maracuja Lip Exfoliant

I believe I got this for Christmas 2 years agao and I still have it and lots of it. It’s not an everyday make up routine, maybe once a week. I tend to use it whenever I have chapped lips that just started to get bad. It’s great because it gets rid of all the dead skin and your lips start to feel good again. You can get this product at Sephora for $21.00.

Dove Revive Dry Spray Antiperspirant

I saw all the commercials for this new product and I wanted to try it out for myself. I use the normal Dove deodorants so I’m familiar with the company, I must say I’m pretty impressed. It smells great and you don’t have to worry about those clumps that can happen. Now the bottle says it’s 48 hour protection – that’s a straight up lie – it works like your normal deodorant, you’re gonna have to reapply. You can get it at any local store that sells beauty supplies, mine was roughly $6.00.

Organix Renewing Argan Oil of Morocco Extra Penetrating Oil (Dry and Coarse Hair)

I got this because we all know I work in a pool and it kills my hair. I’ve been using this for about 2 years now and love it, you don’t need a lot, maybe a little drop, rub it in your hands than put it in your hair. I mostly put it in the ends because that’s where it gets the worst. You can put too much in your hair and make your hair greasy looking. You can get this at any beauty supply/drug store roughly for $6.00 to $7.00.

St. Ives Oatmeal & Shea Butter Hydrating Body Wash

So the story with this one was I ran out of body wash at my boyfriend’s house and forgot to buy more. When I was in the shower one of the roommates body wash was there. She’s my friend so I just used a little bit. It made my body feel so soft and clean, I went home and bought some for myself; and it smell pretty good too. The best part is after I come out of the chlorine and I use this my skin isn’t dry and itchy anymore. I got this at Target for $4.00.

the-loop-premade-drinks-girls-night-out-sangriaGirls’ Night Out Sangria – Flavoured Wine

My good friend decided that she was going to have a wine and cheese night, and I’m not much of a wine drinker but I do love sangria. My boyfriend got me hooked on it, anyways, I started looking online and I know the Girls’ Night Out brand is pretty good. I found sangria flavoured wine! It’s pretty damn good, I shared it with my family before the wine and cheese night, and we finished the bottle pretty damn fast. In the summer you can totally put it in a jug, cut some fruit up and sit outside with it. It is definitely a good starter wine. Here in Canada we have a alcohol store called the LCBO, you can get it there for $8.95.

Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Polaroid Camera – Black

I’ve wanted this camera for years but it’s so popular and kind of hard to find. My sister found it for me and gave it to my for Christmas. The pictures are smaller than normal Polaroid cameras you grew up with or that your parents had but you can get a camera with that size film. The camera is $99.99 at Best Buy, it comes with 2 film packs (20 pictures), the only problem is finding more film, they sell out fast and cost $12.00-$21.00. You also can only get photo albums for it on Ebay right now, they haven’t gotten that for, nor do I think they will. They seem to focus on the cameras only. It is still an amazing and fun camera, old things are coming back!

Alright and that’s it for February Favourites, let me know what you think of my products or tell me what your favourites were this month.
