February Favourites 2018

Buxom Red Inferno Bold Gel Lipstick 

I was on Sephora’s virtual artist app on their website trying on lipstick when this one came up, I just had to have it but sadly this shade wasn’t sold in stores. I waited for awhile until one day I just decided to get it – I’m absolutely in love with this lipstick. It’s matte, it doesn’t dry up your lips, it stays on for a long time and it’s bold just like it says. I got this at Sephora for $28.00.

Clinique Liquid Facial Soap – Mild

With being Canadian and Winters being cold our skin changes all the time, I use to use the Foaming Facial Soap but my skin gets extremely dry in the Winter so I had to switch it up! It’s the same as the Foaming one only, this one is a liquid and it’s way more mild – meaning it won’t add to my already dry skin. I got this at Sephora for $24.00.

Hair Favourite:

YN_650x400-olaplex

Olaplex 

When we colour or thermal style our hair we end up breaking the bonds, Olaplex is a 3 step process that restores the compromised hair. No. 1 Bond Multiplier – in salon service that rebuilds disulfide bonds and starts the process to preventing damage. No. 2 Bond Protector – step two in salon service that continues to rebuild and restore broken bonds which makes strong, healthy hair. No. 3 Hair Perfector – at home bottle that ensures the bonds stay healthy and strong.
I recently did a lift and tone on myself (bleached out my whole head) and Olaplex saved my hair! It actually works and can be used with any colour line. This however, will not get rid of split ends – the ONLY thing that gets rid of split ends is a HAIR CUT! If you are a license hair stylist you can get this at Cosmoprof but if you’re just your average Jo find a salon near you that does this service!

Sephora Foot Masks

I wrote about the hand mask before and was impressed, now I’m writing about the foot mask because I’m impressed! My boyfriend has the worst feet I’ve seen and I made him do this mask. Now it didn’t get rid of the super hard skin he has from wearing steel toe boots all day but the rest of his feet were hydrated and soft which even he liked! Ladies, if you want your man to start taking care of his feet, this is a good place to start! I got this at Sephora for $6.00.

Home Favourite: 

6000197664833

Google Home Mini

I actually got this as a secret Santa gift at Christmas from a coworker. As you’ve seen on the commericals you say, “hey google” or “ok google” then say a commands, such as, “What’s the weather outside?” It will then proceed to tell you the weather in your city. There’s 100’s of commands that you can find online, my personal favourite is tell me a joke! You can get this a different stores depending where you’re located, but in Canada Best Buy has it for $80.00.

April Favourites 2015!

Makeup Favourite: 

s1078138-main-Lhero

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.

Body Favourite:

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.

Home Favourite:

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.

Music Favourite:

every-other-freckle

Every Other Freckle by alt-J

My boyfriend told me about this song, he likes it because I have freckles. There’s actually two versions of the music video, a girl version and a guy version. I posted the girl version. Listen to it and let me know what you think!

Random Favourite:

SetRatioSize650600-Hard-Sided-Bottles-Blue

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.
