Why does all the best stuff have to come out around Christmas time? I mean sure, it’s great to make a wish list with it but it makes it nearly impossible to go to the mall to shop for presents and not buy something for yourself! Case and point, this Lush Christmas Party gift set that is for, yep you guessed it, ME.
I recently stopped into my local Lush shop when I got bored of waiting for my Fiancé to come out of EB Games. I had the best of intentions. I was going to pick up a Rose Jam (like I do every Holiday season) and be on my merry way (pun intended). BUT NO. Since my local Lush ladies know my face, they know that I’m probably going to buy any new release they have to show me and guess what, they’re usually right. This trip was no exception when one employee pulled out a bright yellow bottle of something that smelled like one of my favourite Holiday candies, a Terry’s Chocolate Orange.
So, I’m a little bit paranoid when it comes to developing fine line and wrinkles around my eyes. I’ve used an eye cream since I was about 19 years old and always wear sunscreen and (attempt to remember to) wear my sunglasses. But before I became obsessed with combatting the signs of aging, I was obsessed with baking my face in the sun for hours. I so wish I had known the risks associated with sun and tanning bed exposure earlier in my teens but sadly, we cannot go back in time! Now, I’m trying to repair any damage I have done and maybe even reverse it if I can.
Hello again dear readers! Today I have to share with you an awesome giveaway from Softlips Canada! You may remember my last Softlips giveaway (which was a huge success) so we decided to do it again just in time for the Holiday Season to make sure your lips are kissably soft (just incase there’s any mistletoe hanging around)!
The newest addition to the Softlips line is Softlips Luxe 5-in-1 Lip Moisturizer ($4.67 Each).They’re available in two brand new flavours, Silky Shea and Creamy Coconut and both contain amazing hydrating ingredients like Vitamins A, C & E, Shea Butter and Coconut oil. I personally struggle with dry lips for nearly 9 months of year so I’m always looking for the next best thing in lip hydration!
Wow! I haven’t done one of these posts in such a long time – actually, I haven’t done any posts in such a long time! Since switching jobs in June, I haven’t had much of a drive to blog when I get home. Why? I blog all day at work for other people’s blogs! But now I figure, hey, if I’m going to do all this work for them, I should spend a little time on my own. I still love writing and sharing my experiences and I really miss interacting with the Beauty community! So, to get back in the swing of things, I thought I would go back-to-basics with one of my favourite types of posts – favourites!
Sometimes I avoid doing favourites posts because, honestly, my favourites don’t change very often! I get hooked on a couple products and find myself only using those for months on end (I’m a terrible beauty blogger). But, since the weather has changed so much in the past couple months (we have snow), so have my skin care, hair care and makeup routines. So, I figured it was time to share my new loves with everyone.
First off, let me start out by saying I’ve struggled with breakouts and blackheads since my early teens and I think I officially tried just about ever product on the drugstore shelves. I’ve since sort of abandoned my anti-acne routine (although I still break out frequently) for one with more anti-aging benefits (hey, I’m getting close to 30!) but when I was offered a chance to test out a Clean & Clear Routine from Crowdsocial, I jumped at the chance to re-discover some of my favourites!
