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.

Hair Care Favourite:

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.

Random Favourite:

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.

Happy Belated Birthday to Me!

That’s right! My birthday was last Friday! I am officially 23..

Because I totally do this all the time I’m going to do it with my birthday, I’m going to show you what I got! I was definitely spoiled this year but I am so thankful for all the gifts, birthday wishes and the time I got to spend with people. 

Some of the gifts I won’t have up close pictures for because I’m just getting pictures off the internet but I do have one picture from Instagram with all the gifts I got so you can see them there. 

Alright so my day started off at night actually, I just worked open to close at work, was dead tired and everyone else was tired too. Everyone was sending me birthday messages the night before since we all had to work early in the morning. The day of I got up and went to work where everyone said happy birthday again, I had to work the aquafit guarding slot, it was a one guard swim but we rotate every 15 mins so we don’t get bored. I left the pool to go get the lap top for one of my instructors, while I did that my other guard told all the old ladies that it was my birthday so when I rotated back on to guard they all ended up singing happy birthday. It was pretty cool and nice thing for my guard to do for me. After when everyone else came I got birthday cupcakes, cookies and a cover for my shift! I went home to my mum and sister where I got my birthday card from my cat! My sister and mum did it, it was pretty cute and totally my cat. Slowly my family came home then we waited on my boyfriend – always a slow poke! When he finally got to my house he took my mum and I to the mall because of the gift he got me!

The red Nexus 5 cell phone! My boyfriend is the best. He got it for me because my other phone that I had was a shit box and I kept complaining about it. I helped paid for it a bit because I felt bad but he still put a lot of money into it. I’ve been taking care of my baby from now on. My bestfriend got me a case but we are still waiting for that to get here. 

After we got the phone all set up and ready to go we went to dinner at the Mandarin. My sister and step dad met us there but they took so long because my step dad got pulled over! Was pretty funny but because he was on the way to my dinner they let him go. We ate like crazy then came home to open gifts! Here come the pictures!
