I originally had wanted to go into more detail about some of the items I'm blogging about today but I like keeping things sweet and short. I hope you feel the same way :)
First off though, something I was supposed to blog a LONG time ago was a lovely giveaway I won from MISSMICCHAN! She gave me all these lovely masks to try, extra goodies, and a very sweet card (your secret is safe with me! haha). Thanks OODLES my dear! Please go visit her, she's a sweetiepie :)
Next is the Urban Decay Naked Palette I bought a while ago during my post-midterm shopping spree. I absolutely just love looking at this palette! The possibilities are endless. I do wish they had more matte colours because a lot of the shades are pretty glittery and shimmery. But I'm slowly getting more comfortable with shimmery shadows because I think they add more depth and dimension. If you're an eyeshadow person it's definitely a must-buy!
I was watching one of Bubzbeauty's youtube videos and she mentioned this amazing exfoliant that doesn't use microbeads and instead it's this gel that you apply on your face and then when you rub it, clumps/balls of dead skin is removed (see a full review and pictures at this blog). It's apparently a bestseller in Japan! I wanted to get my hands on a bottle but realized it's quite expensive especially when I have no idea if it works on my skin. I ran across BeautyCarousel site where you can get free samples of this product, you only have to pay shipping. It DOES work on my skin but I can't figure out if it's a scam or not. I feel like it's gel that dries up and rolls up into balls of GEL not dead SKIN cells. But that's only my theory :P I'll put this product at the end of my "want" list for now :P
I also bought some fleece leggings/tights on eBay! This intrigued me when I heard about it because it looks like normal leggings except the inside is lined with fleece! I thought that was pretty clever and I don't understand why Canada doesn't have this more widely available! I've only seen them at American Apparel. These are perfect for me, especially since I have a long commute, they are really warm! They can also be layered with another pair of leggings, double up for double the warmth! :)
So what have I been up to for my last days of freedom? Reading and felt crafts! The apple is actually a cellphone cover and the cloud was my failed one because I made it too small haha. The bread keychain I made for my boyfriend haha. And on the latest book from Lauren Conrad L.A Candy series :) To those of you who needs a girly super easy read that requires absolutely no thinking - try her books! :)
Heading back tomorrow back to the big city for school, I have a feeling it's going to be a busy term! I have 7 courses and on top of that applying for internships and interviews. SIGH. Anyways the weekend isn't over yet so I'm not going to sulk just yet! Hope you all have an amazing weekend ^^! xoxo
