NAILS | Bloody Monster Mouth Kitty Stitches #CBBxManiMonday

I realize looking at these photos that I have no orange in my manicure so it's almost like a Christmas manicure except for the fangs, evil kitty and blood. I guess it depends on how your Christmas celebrations go, but we are now halfway through October which means two more weeks until Halloween! I had my first piece of Halloween-sized candy over the weekend which signals the beginning of the indulgent season of chocolate and feeling like I've eaten too much every week! I have been wanting to do all these Halloween designs over the years and finally sat down today and chose a few favourites!

KBEAUTY | Entia No Filter Moisturizing Mask #100DaysofSheetMasks

You may have noticed that over the last 4 months I have been loving sheet masks. Nay, OBSESSED with sheet masks to the point that seeing them in my house, in someone else's house, in a store makes me so happy. I know it's a bit weird, but I'm a fairly pragmatic person who doesn't get excited often and though I am sensible when it comes to most things, I have completely lost all sense of sensibility when it comes to sheet masks. It is like a beast has awoken inside of me and all it wants to do is sheet mask myself and all who come in contact with it. I have had a few people tell me that they started going through their own stash or buying sheet masks because of my #100DaysofSheetMask Challenge and that genuinely makes me SO HAPPY. There is a lot of crap going on in the world right now, but for 15-20 minutes every day, we can all relax and have happy skin. No one can argue with that!

HAIR | Garnier Fructis 1 Minute Hair Treats

Not only have I been sheet masking like a demon, but I have also been hair masking every time I wash my hair! While I understand the importance of hair masking at least once a week when you have coloured or damaged hair, I have noticed that a lot of hair masks require 10-20 minutes to penetrate the hair shaft to really make any sort of difference. I prefer to do all of my hair masking in the shower and I can never find enough to do while waiting plus I hate wasting running water like that so when I saw that the Garnier Fructis Hair Treats were just ONE MINUTE I was sold just on the luxury of TIME!

SKINCARE | Yes To Mud Masks #100DaysofSheetMasks

I have always been someone who loves the concept of a clay mask and its detoxification and cleansing benefits, but despite the numbers of pots and packages of mud I have, I tend to prefer the instant effects of chemical exfoliation. While I am fine with puttering around AFTER my shower for 20 minutes with a sheet mask on, I for some reason find it difficult to make time BEFORE a shower to mud mask. Sheet masking consistently for the past 65 days has made me acutely aware of the importance of self-care so let me tell you just how NICE these Yes To Mud Masks have been!

NAILS | Halloween Black Kitty Cats #CBBxManiMonday

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! I had mentioned on Friday through my Instagram stories that I had to work all the way through until today, but hubs and I did end up having a quiet Thanksgiving dinner when I got home from work. I'm not big on family dinners and get-togethers (I know, I am the daughter from hell) and especially with how I always feel when I come home from my job, I am just devoid of energy. I expend so much of my brain power at work that I find it physically difficult to socialize much afterwards so thankfully Casey is a fan of both cooking and having quiet dinners!

KBEAUTY | Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Jelly Sheet Mask #100DaysofSheetMasks

Exactly two years ago, I placed my first Glow Recipe order because it was THE super sexy new place to shop for Kbeauty products that weren't quite as mainstream in North America as other more well-known favourites. Even now, I still find their selection of products quite good and then Glow Recipe did something even sexier - come out with their very own line of products! Only recently have their products become available at Sephora so when their Watermelon Glow Jelly Sheet Mask became available to order I jumped at the chance! I mean, look at how CUTE that packaging is!
