::: press sample :::

Fall colours haven't hit the trees just yet, but they are slowly reaching makeup bags, and I am quite pleased. I tend to love the hues that come with every season, but fall is especially great with deeper, more intense shades. Mary Kay is feeling the seasonal love with their new Fall 2017 Colour Collection which features blush, plum, and smoky shades to see you through fall and winter.

This, That & Other Stuff Vol. 11 | NYX Edition

this that & other stuff nyx edition
::: press sample / affiliate links :::

Happy Monday, blog fans! I have had the same one song in my head for days (this one) and you know what? I don't even mind. I feel like I've time hopped (well, backwards that is) as I've been listening to new Shins and Broken Social Scene albums. I hadn't realized I how much I missed them. Anyway, you're not here for new music chat, you're here for the NYX. I've got a few random bits from the brand, so a round of This, That & Other Stuff just made sense.

Monochromatic posts two days in a row, and I've got to say I love the look. We'll have some fun hues tomorrow though (hello, metallic lip cremes!) Anyway, the mail gods have smiled upon me, and I received the September Pearlesque Box way earlier than I expected, so let's check it out, yeah?  You know what to do....

Givenchy Noir Interdit Lash Extension Effect Mascara

::: press sample / affiliate links :::

Mascara Monday is overrated. That, and I was not nearly organized enough to get a post up on Monday. Regardless, we're talking mascara today. No, not just any mascara, but a la-dee-da, fancy-ass, designer mascara. Whaaaat?! Normally, I avoid pricier mascaras as I haven't had the greatest experience with them and have found you can find some stellar drugstore options. But, as a mascara fan, I couldn't pass up an opportunity to slather on a new formula. The verdict? You'll have to keep reading to find out...

::: press sample / affiliate links :::

Don't be alarmed, but the universe doesn't want you to read this. Not to get all dramatic, but so far everything that could go wrong, has in my efforts to get this little blog post out and into the world- cracked memory card, dead batteries, no internet connection, key board malfunctions (that one was kitten caused....) I am not off to the best start. Regardless, I will soldier on. I'm a trooper.

Farmhouse Fresh | Fresh Finds from the Farm

farmhouse fresh  fresh finds from the farm::: press sample / affiliate link :::

I am currently a sleep deprived human, and I am the first to admit I don't tend to function well on less than eight hours. I am currently trying to train a kitten that not everything needs to be bitten. More specifically, my fleshy bits. If she's awake, she's either plotting her attack (and bite) or in the act of biting me. Is she adorable? You bet. Does she melt my heart when she crawls up in my arms for naps? You bet. Do I also kind of want to kill her after she's woken me up every hour and a half to play bite? I'll let you figure that one out... Toothy kittens have nothing to do with today's Farmhouse Fresh post, but I'm tired. Anyway, lets dig in to some especially great finds from the farm.

OPI Iceland Collection | Fall/Winter 2017

OPI Iceland Collection Fall Winter 2017 (1)::: press sample / affiliate links :::

It seems far too premature to be talking fall/winter, but we all know the beauty world marches through seasons at an accelerated pace. I actually don't mind, as fall is my favourite season and I have a penchant for the hues that accompany it. This year, OPI is taking us on an Icelandic voyage with their Iceland Collection, featuring a palette of rich hues that transition perfectly through fall to winter.

Tuesday, August 15, 2017 Monthly Candy Box | July 2017 box july (3)::: press sample / affiliate links :::

Given everything ailing the world, is it okay to take a few moments to talk about something as simple as candy? I'm not exactly sure, but I would like to think a bit of candy chat is a nice break from everything else you're likely reading and watching. So, back to the goods... I was recently sent the July box and, as per usual, it's bursting with a fun selection of sugar-laden offerings.

Good Hair Days Ahead | Priorin Hair Growth Supplement

Priorin hair growth supplement (1)::: press sample / sponsored :::

The best thing I did for my hair was cut it off. Not that it was in terrible shape, I've just found that my new cut has given me a new love for my hair. I went from feeling pretty meh about it, to loving how it looks. Loving your hair is a great feeling. As women, we tend to put a lot of our self-worth into our hair, so when we feel like it's less-than we feel like less than. Clearly, we're more than our hair, but there is a simple way to give what you've got a boost...

The gel-effect range has had a few new shade additions that I have been loving. They aren't officially fall releases, but they do give me autumnal feels.

Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Acne Care

No matter how big or small your acne battles are, having the right products around make a world of difference. The hard part? Finding products that actually on your skin and acne type. It usually takes a bit of trial and error, but one magical ingredient often helps on everyone.... tea tree. Its pungent scent definitely takes some getting used to but its antiseptic properties are perfect for banishing blemishes.

Feeling the... | Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette

urban decay naked heat (2)
::: I bought it / affiliate links :::

Although I own Urban Decay Naked palettes 1-3, none have gotten their own official blog post. Mainly because I tend to drag my feet and really wait out my purchase. However, I was all over the Naked Heat and did something I've never done- pre-ordered. I figured I'd not only get my gorgeous palette a bit sooner, but I could also get my blog post out and into the world before a million and four other bloggers did. The universe had other ideas. My palette took a journey that did not end at my mail box. Of course, the one time I pre-order something it gets lost in the mail... Anyway, my second attempt arrived (yay!) so let's get to it.
