Happy Friday, blog fans! Who else is pumped that it's finally Friday? I started the week less than organized and that theme seemed to run through. Ugh. We're wrapping up the week with a bit of colour. Bold glossy and matte shades from the new Mark by Avon Pout Velvet & Vinyl Lip Paint range.

The Sweet Tooth | Waterbridge Special Edition Canada 150 Wine Gums

waterbridge special edition canada 150 wine gums (3)::: press sample :::

When it comes to patriotism, Canadians aren't always very showy, especially compared to our American neighbours. While they shout it from the rooftops, we mention it politely to passersby. That said, this year has been a bit different as our home and native land (well, mine anyway) is celebrating 150 years of existence. The Canada 150 celebrations have brought out a whole other side of true patriot love with just about everyone and everything getting into the spirit. Even the candy...

Weleda Mighty Essentials Travel Kit

::: press sample / affiliate links :::

I think I may have a Netflix hangover... I am feeling more than a bit sluggish today (all the coffee is necessary) after my 'just one more episode' session last night. Just one more turned into just five more but I've started watching Wentworth (think OITNB but way grittier and Australian) and am full on hooked. Which actually ties into today's post, as I am also full on hooked on Weleda. Somehow, I've come this far without knowing much about the brand and their offerings but thanks to the Mighty Essentials Travel Kit, I'm making up for lost time.

Avon True Colour Lip Crayons

It's a lipstick kind of day, no? While I'm not entirely sure what makes a day right for lipstick in particular, I'm going with it. Today's lipsticks are a little bit different, in that they've got a formula that will suit those who don't usually like lipstick. Intrigued? You know what to do...

The Snack Edit | MunchPak Original Snack Subscription Box

I think it's safe to say that most of us snack from time to time. A little something to get through the afternoon slump, something sweet in the evening... you've been there. The question is, how often are you eating the same, tired, boring thing? Food ruts are easy to end up in- studies have shown that the average person only eats about thirty different foods. There is a whole world of snack options and MunchPak is working to change up your snacking with their ingenious snack subscription box.

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Summer 2017

I'm pretty sure I'm not alone with this affliction, but I am physically unable to stroll past a nail polish display without taking at least one home with me. Does it matter that I already have pretty much every colour I could ever want? Clearly not. One brand I am constantly adding to my stash Sally Hansen. I usually peruse the newer Miracle Gels first, but you can never pass up the classic Complete Salon Manicure range. They've recently curated a little summer collection that includes fan favourites and two all new shades.

Lip Lovin | Lip Smacker Sodas & Frappes

I have always had a fondness for lip gloss and balms, and I think it stems from an early exposure to Lip Smacker. I had a pretty impressive collection as a kid, and my love for the brand has never fully faded. That said, it's been full on revived with the incredibly cute Lip Smacker colas (Coke if we're being technical) and frappe balms that have recently hit drugstores.

Tuesday, June 13, 2017 Monthly Candy Box | May 2017 may (2)::: press sample :::

Unofficial tradition mandates the blog week to start with makeup, but I'm feeling rebellious today. Let's start with dessert, yes? I was sent a very fun little (actually no, it's fairly large) box that happens to be the May box. Want a closer look at what you can find inside? Sure you do...

Happy Friday, blog fans! We've got something really exciting to chat about today... Food Trip to. Sure, it's a subscription box, but it's not just your average box of stuff. Shipping every two months, Food Trip to takes you on a global journey to a new country with each shipment. I was inclined to say culinary journey, but it's so much more. There's a lot to get to, so lets get to it!

Glow. Radiance. Illuminate. Brighten... I don't really care what word is used, I want it.

Elizabeth Arden Tropical Escape Colour Collection | Summer 2017

I don't know about where you call home, but in my little habitat, it's still kind of chilly. I'm not entirely mad about the cooler weather, but it does seem a bit odd to dabbling in bronzey, warm weather makeup while still wearing a rather thick cardigan. Oh well, before we know it the hot, humid kill-me-now heat will be here and the summer hues of the new Elizabeth Arden Tropical Escape Colour Collection will be a perfect fit.

The Spring Edit | Jord Frankie 35 Dark Sandalwood & Mint

Spring is a happy time in my back yard, as it brings the apple blossoms. I have a little apple tree, and while it doesn't always bear much in the way of actual apples (the deer help on that front) it does bring the pretty with a full display of white blossoms. There is something so renewing about seeing the tree go from leafless and dull to fully alive with the promise of at least a few red apples come autumn. All that said, one can't help but feel a bit anew come spring. Spring cleaning, and a spring edit in the style and wardrobe department are pretty standard for me. While my wardrobe doesn't change too much, a fresh haircut (I'm behind schedule on that this year) or colour and a few new accessories do come into play. This year I'm getting in touch with my natural side with a gorgeous and unique wood watch from Jord.

It's (finally) the end of the week, and today, we're talking drugstore finds. High-end hauls are fun, but I find I get just as much enjoyment from little, budget-friendly finds. A stroll through the drugstore can be a beautiful thing. So, if you're looking for some inspiration for your next trip, read on!

I think quite a few of us have a soft spot for blush. How can you not, really? Little pans of glorious colour to uplift, and if you're lucky, add a little glow to your look. Make that blush cute and it's even better. Mary Kay has done just that and taken what would have been a great blush and made it extra covetable with their incredibly cute Beauty That Counts Baked Cheek Powder.
