Camelia Grey Rug
As most of you know I’ve been slowly buying things for our apartment and am pretty close to having everything for the livingroom. One of the things I needed was a rug. Everywhere I looked rugs were so expensive so I finally looked at structube and found one for $89. I thought that was a decent price for the size I got and it’s a great quality rug, even my dog loves it! The ordering process was easy, we went into a store, asked to order it and once it was back in stock they would call me and I can pick it up. The day I got the call I had to be at work so my boyfriend picked it up for me. Simple. Structube is the best store when it comes to getting simple pieces for your house for cheaper then bigger box stores.
This tree falls in line with things that I wanted for our apartment, we have a pretty big balcony and I wanted to have nice plants for the summer. I’ve tried planting things because of the quarantine but they either did their things or just didn’t work because I don’t have a green thumb. I went to Rona to see what they had and sure enough I got this tree for $15! I was in shock since it was already kinda big but I’ll take it! Now it’s inside since it’s -5 outside and it won’t stop growing. Next summer I think I’ll move it to a bigger pot and see how much that grows since it has to come inside every winter. I wanted more green around the house so the plant worked out perfectly! Plus having a plant around to care for keeps the mind at ease with all this COVID bullshit going around!

Eiffel Structube Chairs
Somewhere in one of my previous monthly favourites I wrote about the new dining room table I got; the one where I got a noise complaint from me attempting to put this thing together! Well, for Christmas I ask for chairs to go with it and I got them! This year for Christmas I’ve been adulting hard, I’ve never been so excited for towels, chairs and a toaster oven in my life. I guess we all get to an age where useless things aren’t cool anymore and organization and a nice dining set is sexy af. My boyfriend’s mum ordered them from Structube, on Christmas day they were sitting in a big box and two were out in the open (which was totally fine). With Structube you get quality items for a descent price however you do need to put them together. The chairs were really easy to put together with two people. I unpacked and unwrapped everything and my boyfriend screwed in the pieces (all he had to do was attach the legs to the seat part). We had a good system and got it done in 30 mins or so. The chairs are absolutely amazing, they’re comfortable, sleek and stylish and cost $39 each.
Briogeo Scalp Revival Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo
Do you have dry, itchy, irratated or even build up and oily scalp? Me too! Literally the whole world has had something wrong with their scalp at some point in their lives and it’s nothing to be embrassessed about. As a hairstlyist I’ve seen some bad scalps that needed some serious TLC, thankfully there’s hundred of products out there to suit your specific needs. I’ve heard great things about Briogeo and have wanted to try it for awhile; at Christmas I got a Briogeo hair box that had 3 or 4 products in it. As you see in the photo the shampoo in grey, that’s because of the charcoal and it feels gritty. I put it on my scalp and rubbed like I normally would when washing my hair. It feels amazing when washing, it does have a menthol feeling (but that is normal with most detox/cleansing shampoos) but it doesn’t hurt. It’s just refreshing. Once I got out of the shower and used my regular products, air dried then felt my scalp, it felt so good! I was seriously impressed with the product and want to work it into my hair routine. In the pack it was a small shampoo but Sephora has the regular size for $54.
Camomile Gentle Eye Makeup Remover
I always have the hardest time when it comes to finding a good makeup remover. No matter what I always find something wrong with the product, whether it be it doesn’t remove all the makeup, it’s not good with waterproof or that it stays and leaves a residue. I have found a couple and wrote about them but I’m adding in this one to the list. For Christmas my mum, sister and I got The Body Shop advent calendars because they’re cool af. This advant calendar was way better than getting chocolate (because lets face it the older we get the more our bodies can’t handle chocolate like the way it use too). The first day I used this remover I was impressed because I actually got it directly in my eye and it didn’t hurt. So it’s definately safe to say that it’s actually gentle. I had no problem removing the makeup, it smells good and calming, it’s suitable for sensitive skin (HELLO) and contact len wearers (I don’t wear contacts so I can’t say). I have used the bottle almost everyday (Tuesday to Saturday) since December and I still have the same bottle, it is definately worth the money and it’s not even that expensive. The Body Shop has it regularly priced $19.00. Not bad!

Benefit Cosmetics Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation
I had a wedding in October and decided to get my makeup done at Sephora in Barrie (because that’s where the wedding was taking place) and absolutely loved my makeup artists and loved the products she used on me. I don’t like having a lot of makeup on my face because 1. I don’t like the feeling of it and 2. I hate hiding my freckles (yay UK background). I told the stylist this and she nailed it. This foundation was the best anyone has used on me to this day. It didn’t feel like I had anything on and I could still see my freckles. You can get this at Sephora for $40.00.
Skin Care Favourite:
Aveda Hand Relief Moisturizing Creme
When it comes to Aveda I love anything that’s the ‘Shampure’ smell (it’s the typical Aveda smell if you know what that smells like) so I love this hand creme in the shampure scent. It also comes in a cherry almond scent that I love. You can get this at Aveda stores or salons for $34.00
Hair Care Favourite:
Aveda Dry Remedy Daily Moisturizing Oil
DRY HAIR! Do I have your attention? This Aveda oil works well out of all oils because it actually goes into the hair strand rather then sitting on top and making you think it’s working. This bottle will last you a while as with every Aveda product, a little goes a long way. You can put this in wet or dry hair before blow drying or after or just to refresh your ends on non-wash days. You can get these at Aveda stores and salons for $41.00
The North Face Women’s Artic Down Parka
I needed a new winter jacket because thanks to my dog who ate my old one. So naturally I fell inlove with the most expenive jacket. (LOL) I got this one at Sports Chek for $399.99 but it was worth every penny.
Structube Shari White Dining Table
My boyfriend and I finally got a bigger place that allows us to have an actualy dining table so I found this one and absolutely love it. I actually got a noise complaint putting it together because I was so excited for my new purchase. I’ve fallen in love with this store because they have better quality products then Ikea but you’re not breaking the bank for it (don’t get me wrong they do have expensive things but you can find good ones for cheaper here too.) This cost me $299 at Structube.
