Mini H&M Haul

Hey ladies, so H&M has a sale going on right now, and I only picked up 2 items. I picked up a jumper that was on sale for $20 from $35 and a pair of sunglasses. It wasn’t too exciting. I had picked up other items but I hadn’t liked how they fit when I got home. I never try things on in store, princess gives to much trouble. It’s a great thing they have such a good return policy.

Mini MAC Haul

Hey ladies, I haven’t posted a MAC haul in ages, like since the beginning of the year. I know crazy right. I’ve been trying to step away from MAC and all their collections. Even though I’ve been really wanting to get things. But they have a new collection coming up on July 7,  so I can’t wait, I’m saving up for it as we speak. Hopefully I will get everything I want.  Anyways I finally picked up Vegas Volt lipstick and Pink Lemonade lipglass, I’ve been wanting these for over a year and finally got around to it. I haven’t worn it yet. But I can’t wait to rock them.

Dundas Square!

Hey ladies, so yesterday I decided to go shopping as well and explore downtown. I went with my princess and my boo. Picked up some goodies from The Body Shop, which I will be posting in another post. Anyways we walked all over downtown Toronto and stopped by Dundas Square. It’s so full activity, from people preaching about God at the intersections to people break dancing. There are great stores and restaurants as well. I can’t wait to go back later this week to go out for dinner or lunch.  

Moroccan Oil: Shampoo & Conditioner

Hey ladies, I’ve been hauling a lot lately. I recently picked up the Moroccan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner, originally I was going to pick up the hair oil treatment but they were out of stock. So I decided to give this a try, my hairdresser said these would work really well with my hair. So hopefully they do, I haven’t tried them yet. But once I use them for about a month, I will make another post on how I’m liking them.

Mini Shoppers Haul!

Hey ladies, last week Shoppers Drug Mart has Maybelline quads on sale so I decided to pick some up. I wasn’t sure if I already owned these, seeing all my makeup is still in Calgary, but I decided to get a few anyways lol. Couldn’t resist the sale at all.

The ones I picked up were:
24Q Enchanted Forest
50Q Sunlit Bronze
22 Chai Latte
40T Chocolate Mousse

It’s a lot of neutral colors, but I’ve been loving simple eyes and bold lips lately. New FOTD will be coming soon. I gotta wash my new sigma brushes, so until that happens I can’t do much lol.

As well I picked up a QUO nail polish remover, seeing I was almost out. And I couldn’t let that happen.

Weight Loss: Week 1

Hey ladies, so I’m back with another update. Yup I’m starting over again. Seeing I’ve lost so much since I got to Toronto and I missed so many weeks between , it seems fit to start again. So this past week, I was eating a lot of junk food but at the same time if I decided I wanted fast food I would only get half of what I really wanted. As well I’ve been eating a lot more fruits and vegetables and tons of walking. Still haven’t gone to the gym or anything like that. But I think if I keep up the walking daily it will be enough until I find out. When I got here my thighs would rub when I walk but now they don’t anymore, super excited about that as well. My tummy is getting a little flatter as well. I never use to be able to by jeans at Forever21 but now I can. That’s a highlight to all this weight I’m losing. Hopefully by my birthday, which is August 7, I will be down to 140. I’m currently weighing 158.4. I plan on trying to cut back on all the soda I drink as well and try to drink more water, honestly I think it tastes so awful, same with flavored water. So if you have any suggestions on how to make water taste better. Leave it in a comment below.

See you next week with another update!
Have an amazing weekend!

Mini Bath & Body Works Haul

Hey ladies, Bath & Body Works is having a clearance sale going on right now. I didn’t want to get to much seeing I don’t have space to put it, seeing I haven’t found an apartment yet. Hopefully soon though. But I wanted to pick up some candles, the ones I wanted in the big jar weren’t on sale so I decided to get the small little ones that were 5 for $10. In total I picked up 10 and I can’t wait to try them out. After I move I will be getting the big jars to them, they smell amazing.

The ones I picked up were:
2 Island Margarita
2 Island Nectar
2 Caribbean Escape
2 Caribbean Salsa
1 Calypso Sun
1 Pineapple Mango

Honestly I always have to get things that deal with Jamaica or the Caribbean. Gotta show love to my islanders hehe.

Mini Revlon Haul!

Hey ladies, if you haven’t noticed I’m currently in love with Revlon products. So a couple of weeks ago at Shoppers, they had the Revlon on sale. So I picked up 2 of the Just Bitten lip stains: Passion & Crave. I’ve been using Passion a lot lately. I’m loving it a lot. I can’t wait to try Crave I think it will look amazing for a bold lip! Next I picked up another Lustrous lip gloss in Coral Reef. I’ve been wanting to get my hand on it since last summer, and  I was finally able to get it. It reminds me a lot of MAC’s Strange Potion. Been wearing pairing this with the Passion lip stain as well.

New Hair Goodies!

Hey ladies, last week I went shopping and picked up some new hair tools and products, seeing I left everything in Calgary; there was too much to bring. So I stopped by a beauty supply store in Eaton Center and picked up 2 combs: rat tail & a wide tooth one. I also picked up some African Gold Hair Food, when I was in Calgary I used my cousins and I loved how it worked on both mine and princess’ hair so I decided to get one for us to use.

EOS Balms!

Hey ladies, I been so behind on these lip balms, couldn’t find them at all in my city. But lucky the weekend before I moved, I was able to find them and they had this cute limited addition set for only  $10.50, they also had them in singles but they were $6.50. Anyways I picked up this set because it was a better deal. The ones that come in this set are Passion Fruit and Strawberry Sorbet. They both smell amazing and I just love them so much. I used the Passion Fruit one today and my lips feel amazing. This might be my new favorite lip balm.

HOTD: 06.21.11

Hey ladies, I haven’t done a post about my hair in months, and I was asked to by my amazing friend Lor’eal, yes girl you’re amazing! Hehe I am no longer natural, I ended it at 11 months. Super happy  I did that, I was having way too much breakage and I wasn’t enjoying that at all. So I just twisted my hair in 2 strand twists today after washing.

Products used:
Moroccan Oil Shampoo & Conditioner
African Gold Hair Food

Loving the Moroccan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner so far, but still too early to do a review on it. As well I really enjoy the African Gold Hair Food, will doing a review on it as well soon.

NOTD: 06.17.11

Hey ladies, so these last few days, I’ve been rocking my natural nails. It feels so weird to have bare nails. But I decided to try out this new nail harder my friend Lor’eal sent me. So I have 2 coats of Ruby Kisses Nail Harder on. It has a great shiny finish that I’m loving. I can’t wait to actually paint my nails though. I will be using this as my base for the next month or so to see if I see any difference in my nails. Be back with a review in a couple of weeks.

What’s your favorite nail harder?

Sigma Brushes!!

Hey ladies, I have officially received my Sigma Brushes from I got them back in May but because I was moving, I haven’t had a time to post about them yet. I haven’t even gotten to use or wash them either. That’s how far I’m behind on things lol. Anyways I received them after months of posting and finally on April 1, I had enough to luuux dollars to get them. I’m super excited to try them out. I picked the premium set which has 15 brushes. It has 7 face and 7 eye brushes. As well it comes with a lip brush. It also came with a free travel size blending brush. In my pictures I couldn’t find the lip brush, seeing it was lost in my suitcase. I’ve found it now, but I was too lazy to retake the pictures. Once I get to try them out, I will do a review on them.

Disclaimer: I blogged real hard for months to collect enough luuux dollars to get these.
