I love cosmetics | Raspberry & Blackberry Body Butter and Strawberries & Cream Bubble Bath and Shower Creme

When it comes to things I love, food and bath products are right up there for me in terms of determining my happiness and when these two things are combined I am like a kitten on catnip! I have sniffed the I love… products while perusing the aisles of Shoppers Drug Mart and could never decide on a scent because they all smelled so deliciously edible! I love… is a company based in the UK that prides itself on paraben-free formulations along with only natural additives for their bath and body line of products.

I Love...

#SinfulSaturdays | Sinful Colors Forget Now with Metallic Plaid Stud Nail Art


Being on the West Coast means there is STILL time for some Sinful Colors love! Today I have a glittery, pink jelly called Forget Now that I found a little watery and needed 3 coats to get the coverage you see here. I could have even done one more coat, but I personally draw the line at 3! As you all know, I can never leave a swatch alone, so for some added flair I added some metallic studs from Born Pretty!

Beauty Box Weekends #5 | Petit Vour June 2014 “Bon Voyage” Edition

“Bon Voyage” can now mean “goodbye to summer” when it comes to today’s edition of Beauty Box Weekends. It’s still sunny in Vancouver, which is rare, so I am grateful for every day where I can still slather on sunscreen and not whip out an umbrella. June’s Petit Vour had a couple of really solid products that had me pretty happy overall so let’s get into it, shall we?

August Empties!

It was nice to actually see that I was steadily using products instead of being all over the place and having half opened bottles all over the place. Life was also a bit more under control this month with my “real life” being back on track. I was doing so well on empties that the hubby even wanted me to include his one! It’s sweet when the boys get on board the beauty blogging train.
