MAKEUP | Misting, Setting and Refreshing with Pixi Beauty

Now, that we officially have our summer heat wave I have been misting whenever I get the chance and after spraying myself enough times, I feel like a bit of a "spray connoisseur" and we all know that not all mists are created equally so let's get to what I loved and maybe feel should be improved upon when it comes to these Pixi Beauty Mists

KBEAUTY | Holika Holika Gold Caviar Foil Mask

This week has felt incredibly tiring mainly because I am not used to getting up at 6am for work and coming home 11 hours later. I am a night owl so even trying to force myself to sleep earlier means falling asleep at 1am. I had my new crown put in on Tuesday with no freezing (I just hate how long it takes for the effects to wear off) and trotted off to work right away so that I could have my day off later this week FULLY to myself. Today was a hellish day at work with a VERY rushed inventory that had all of us in at 7:45am until 7pm! We were all total zombies by the end and by the time I left work, I wanted to eat, sleep and vomit all at the same time. It was just a FANTASTIC feeling.

I know I have been taking my sheet mask game VERY seriously this last month and this week I have really found myself looking forward to the pamper time. Even though I have a schedule in place for which sheet masks to wear on each day in my bullet journal (for realz), I deviated from the plan this week because I REALLLLY wanted to try the Holika Holika Gold Foil Mask ($5 USD)!


HAIR | Matrix Professional Total Results Re-Bond Collection + Giveaway!

July is always an exciting month for my little blog because I tend to save a lot of my giveaways for the month of my birthday! It's just a month-long celebration that I think everyone should be a part of! I didn't think all of you would love the sheet mask giveaway as much as you did and it's definitely going to be something I will do again!

Other than skincare, I seem to spend a lot of time on my hair. The colour-treated aspect has turned me into a bit of hair product fiend and since my hair is so sensitive to product I can't use anything that will kill it which believe it or not, hasn't been hard to do! For the last month I have been using the Matrix Professional Total Results Re-Bond line and it has definitely been working wonders!

NAILS | A Touch of Gold #CBBxManiMonday

I got VERY little done today with regards to the blog and ended up going to Homesense instead to get a pot and a new cutting board. I was so tired waking up and then I got obsessed with logging my sheet masks into an Excel spreadsheet which has taken 2 hours so far and I am nowhere near to being done yet. It's actually a super fun organizational product that will make a nice little mask database for me! This week's CBB theme is "Gold Accents" and because this was such an open-ended theme, I decided to give nail vinyls with a gradient another go after falling in love with the mermaid scale gradient I did a few weeks ago.

SKINCARE | belif Aqua Bomb Sheet Mask with Melfie

Ever since I went through my sheet masks last week and discovered that I had enough to mask a small army, I decided enough was enough. I needed to take my sheet masking MUCH more seriously! It looks like I mask every night, but I really only started masking 4-5 times a week last month when I realized that many of my sheet masks were close to expiring (I use mine well passed the expiration date with no issues). I also started keeping track of Empties last month which gave me even more motivation to devour my sheet masks and truly make them a part of my skincare routine. I used to think sheet masking was for the leisure life, but even just using gel eye patches in the mornings while getting ready has been helpful in mentally getting ready for the day in addition to some bonus skincare!

EXPERIENCE | Visiting Steveston and My Much Cooler Momma!

As some of you know, I took a staycation last week to celebrate my birthday on Canada Day and do some major cleanup of the Beauty Room. I also had a crown done which made me very grumpy as even today my gums are still sore from the procedure. In addition to all of the things I HAD to do, I also decided it was time for my husband and I to take a day out in Steveston, Richmond which is where TV show "Once Upon a Time" and the new Power Rangers movie were shot (FYI!). I don't often visit Richmond as I despise driving in the area and by transit, Steveston is exactly 1.5 hours of Seabus, Skytrain and Bus. It's a trek, but we had one goal in mind and that was to finally visit my mom's store - Steve's Board & Apparel Shop
