August 2017 - Empties!

Another month has come and gone, and it's already the end of August/beginning of September. Where did the summer go?! And the year! I can't believe we're getting so close to the end of 2017 already! Anyway, it's time to collect the beauty trash, and see what I've used up for the month of August!

Sephora Favorites - Summer Hair Saviors

I'm always looking for sample sized products for my hair. I find when I have full size items, I never really finish them. Plus, I'm on the hunt for products that helps hydrate my hair, and helps bring out my natural wave without weighting down my hair, or making it look greasy. When this Sephora Favorites - Summer Hair Saviors kit popped up on the website, I had to give it a shot. Plus, I really loved the bag that came with it. There was also a $15 dollar off coupon that had gone out, so this made it easier to purchase.

It Cosmetics - It's All About You! Customer Favourites 4 Piece Collection [First Impressions]

Someone in one of the makeup groups I'm in, posted that The Shopping Channel was having a great deal on this bundled package of It Cosmetics products. It contained a 4 piece collection, of customers favourites. I haven't tried much from them, but I've heard amazing things about the original CC Cream, so I decided to take the plunge and ordered this set.

RealHer - Eyeshadow Palette 1 (Be Your Own Kind Of Beauty)

Every Boxycharm subscriber received a RealHer Eyeshadow Palette in their June box. I received palette 1 (along with many other Canadians) which is named Be Your Own Kind Of Beauty. I've never tried RealHer shadows before, so I was excited to give this palette a try! I came up with three different looks.

Topbox - July 2017

Topbox is probably the most affordable subscription service that I have ever subscribed to. It's only $12 a month, which means in Ontario it only comes to $13.56 after taxes. Super affordable. Especially for those who aren't looking to spend too much, while getting to try new brands. They usually only send sample sized products, and a lot of skincare. So if you're looking for mostly makeup, or full size items, I'd recommend Boxycharm instead. Or even Ipsy. There generally isn't a theme of the month either.

Each month we are given the opportunity to wish for a prive box. What that is, is a box featuring a specific brand. First let's take a look at what our prive options were for July.

We decided to go away on Thursday night (we're still away) to visit my BF's family cottage and Thursday was beautiful. We went down to the beach to see the sunset, and I managed to spot a baby turtle! He was so cute! The sunset was very pretty. Today is a little cooler and much more cloudy. I think there may be a storm later. We haven't decided if we will stay another night or head back tonight. It's always so relaxing when we come.

I think I posted last week that I had a job interview, and I had to go through an agency to get it. It's been an annoying process, and in the future I will try my hardest to never use one again. I didn't want to use one this time around but that's how it managed to work out. Anyway, I actually got the job and I will be starting on Monday morning. I'm not too happy because it will be an hour by bus, but what can I do.

I got an email this morning saying Sephora is giving rouge 4x the points on purchases until August 15. I more than likely will not be purchasing anything. I'm trying to hold off on buying anything from Sephora until the vib sales towards the end of the year. I don't really need anything yet. Although I know that sweet peach collection that drops will probably get one purchase from me.

Today marks the 8 year anniversary of my papa (grandfather) passing. It doesn't feel like it's been so long, but at the same time it feels like forever. He was only 69 when he passed, which is not that old. We all miss him everyday, and we certainly missed him at my cousin's wedding in July. They made a little tribute to those who have passed and couldn't be with us to attend the wedding, it was really nice. But of course a few tears were shed.

We are still doing the low carb way of eating. We stopped off at a store called Low Carb Canada on Thursday and grabbed some low carb tortillas (we love these!) And we are going to give something new a try.. zeroodles rice and pasta. I have no idea how they taste, but hopefully they are good! I don't miss rice too much, but I miss bread. Those substitutes don't taste very good so I just avoid them. It will be interesting to see how these noodles/rice are.

I'm writing this from my phone so formatting is hard. I hope this came out okay! Have a good weekend!

I have never tried Nip + Fab products before, so when I was contacted to give some of the skincare a try, I said yes!

Boxycharm - July 2017

Boxycharm is a subscription box service, that sends full size and deluxe sample size items to you each month. I've noticed majority of the time, you will get full sized products, and you receive 5 each month. It is $21 USD a month, plus shipping. There are discounts if you sign up for 3 months, 6 months, or 12 months. I originally signed up for 3 months, and it renewed for another 3 months automatically. Everyone generally gets the same box each month, with a few variations such as lipstick colours. Or a lipstick vs lip gloss. That being said, let's take a look at what I received for my July Boxycharm!
