SHEET MASK | Avon #NakedProof Dare to Bare and Stand Firm Body Masks

Though I missed out on my breast mask for last month's #AnywhereButTheFace Challenge, I did manage to double mask with some brand new Avon body masks! In addition to some new face sheet masks (coming soon to the blog!), the Dare to Bare Decollete Rejuvenating Sheet Mask* and Stand Firm Body Firming Sheet Mask* are targeted treatments for those parts of the body that often get neglected when it comes to skincare. While I am not a regular body masker, I do find them fun to use once in awhile as an intensive hydration treatment. These new body masks are free of mineral oil, D5 silicone (cycloPENTAsiloxane which found in a TON of skincare which I try to avoid), parabens, synthetic colorants and phthalates and contain ingredients that rejuvenate and firm the skin so let's dive in!

NAILS | A Kitty Tribute #CBBxManiMonday

It's hard to believe that the last time I posted, I had mentioned dealing with a sick kitty and now Hemingway is gone...the last two weeks have felt both too fast and incredibly long with Hemi going from a being a normal 4 year old kitty who loved food to being diagnosed with lymphoma in the liver and spleen 2 weeks later. We only said goodbye to him this past Wednesday and yet it feels like so long ago. He was such a special cat in the sense that he was kind of slow when it came to certain things and he never had the typical conniving cat face. He was such a child in his behaviour that you always knew what he was thinking and never had a menacing bone in his body. He was just so simple and uncomplicated which is why we felt so badly when he got really sick. Having to put furbabies down has still got to be one of the worst things anyone needs to do and even though I don't have kids of my own, even friends of mine who are parents find it just as awful. I love cats so I will always have them in my life, but I guess I was just expecting to be doing this every decade, but life goes on and I will never forget my first black kitty.

Inspiration was lacking this week, but I wanted to feel somewhat normal again and join in on today's CBBxManiMonday so in remembrance of Hemi and his black bean toes, here are some paw prints <3

NAILS | Watermelon Season #CBBxManiMonday

This manicure almost wasn't done on Monday as I've had a busy weekend at work and a sick kitty that I have been worrying about. I have just been feeling a bit run down by the time I get home so crawling into bed seems like the best option most nights! It's still brights this week so nothing says summer fun like a watermelon mani!

MAKEUP | Almay Goddess Glosses

Ah, it has been a bit quiet for me in this space this week NOT because I haven't been wanting to blog, but mainly because I haven't been home a few nights and the days at work have been jam packed with what feels like mentally stimulating activity which means that by the time I get home, my brain may as well be filled with glitter and marshmallows. I am going to attempt scheduled blogging again with my goals being Sunday and then MWF as I miss the consistency myself so wish me luck! I am also making an attempt at including makeup back into my blog posts starting with a drugstore brand I have not featured in a long time - Almay!
