This & That Fridays – June 3

Happy June and Happy Friday everyone!

What’s been going on with me:

Wow it’s been a while since I did a This & That Friday post…and a bit since I posted regularly.  The last few weeks have been a little mad around here.  I was completing a course and purging and organizing my house for an upcoming garage sale and then we headed out on a one week vacation to Mexico to celebrate our anniversary.  I had fully planned on doing up some posts while on vacation but the internet was spotty and I got frustrated and gave up on that idea.  Which actually wasn’t a bad thing!  I checked Instagram and Twitter once in a while but for the most part I spent a lot of time reading books and just relaxing.  The problem being that when I got back I had lost my motivation to blog.  Does that ever happen to you?  Despite being really behind on posts, I just had no desire to sit down and type up anything.  Thankfully I seem to have cleared that hump now and I’m looking forward to getting back into it!  Note that I’ve changed up the format of my This & That Fridays posts – let me know how you like it!

As mentioned above, I was completing a course back in May that was keeping me pretty busy; in line with my 2016 Goals, I registered for and completed a course in Graphic Design.  It was a lot more work than I expected but I absolutely loved it!  I plan on continuing on with the program and I will potentially have an exciting related update later on this year so stay-tuned!

Have you seen this?

Apple’s Cookie Monster commercial?  🙂 Love it!  If so, then you need to watch the bloopers.  Cookie Monster was always my favourite Sesame Street character.

collection of 25 No-Bake Peanut Butter Desserts…those Kitkat Crunch Bars are just calling my name.  You’re welcome!

Did you hear?

That Victoria Secret is discontinuing their swimwear line?  I seriously wanted to throw an adult temper tantrum when I heard this – WHY??? WHY???  Apparently they’re not making enough money off of it.  I mean, their quality could sometimes be hit and miss, but I’d be willing to pay a little more if it mean they’d keep it around.  VS is my go-to for swimwear as they typically have cute styles for a reasonable price so I’m sort of at a loss of where I’ll shop for swimwear going forward.  On the bright side I picked up a new top and bottoms for pretty cheap a few weeks ago as they were clearing out their stock.  Sad! 🙁

What I’ve bought recently:

Gap Print Halter Romper – I brought this with me to Mexico and it was so comfy and so cute!  Very easy to dress up or down, based on the shoes and accessories.

Tarte Eyelash Curler – I needed a new eyelash curler and it was a toss-up between this one and Shu Umera’s version.  I ended up going with this one and I’m so glad I did.  I used one of these years ago and I forgot how much I love it!  I have a bad habit of pinching my eyelids with my eyelash curler and this eliminates that completely.  Plus it’s so comfortable in my hand and it fits my eye shape perfectly.

IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream – 2 months after purchase I finally received my order of this CC cream from the Shopping Channel (don’t get me started…) and I hate to say it, but it was worth the wait!  It’s been the only thing I’ve used on my face for the last 2 weeks and I don’t really care to use anything else right now.  I’ll be doing a full review on this in a bit so keep an eye out for it!

What I’m currently coveting:

Gap Linen Surf Shorts – I’ve been having a lot of success at Gap lately and I really like these cozy shorts in Palm Springs Pink.

Glo Brilliant Teeth Whitening Device – I really want something to whiten my teeth – the problem being my teeth are SUPER sensitive with little enamel left on them, so I can’t use simple things like whitening toothpaste or strips.  I hate the price of this but all the reviews say it works with little to no sensitivity.  If you have any other suggestions please share below!

Ikea Falkhojden Desk: I’m looking for a desk for my office and I’ve fallen in like with this one – but I hate that it has zero storage, even with the add-on unit.  Also considering the Kimpen/Lalle.

That’s it for this week – have a great weekend!

    I totally know how you feel about getting into a blogging rut! I definitely don’t post as consistently as I used to- to be honest, sometimes I just don’t feel like painting my nails for swatches, haha! Especially when I know I need to get several swatch pictures done for future posts- that can mean painting the same hand 5-10 times in a row!

    I really couldn’t believe that VS decided to discontinue their swim suit line- I thought their most popular lines were their swim suits and ‘PINK’! I really find it hard to believe that their swim suits don’t rake is as much money as their regular clothing and shoes- which I don’t really care for.

      Omg yes, nail swatch posts can be soooo painful sometimes, I don’t do them very often because they are so much work. Your nail posts are always so lovely though! 🙂

      Yes I feel like I should write VS an email and start a petition or something. Totally not a fan of their clothing either, but I’ve never tried their shoes. I feel like if there’s something they should get rid of it’s their catalog…who has catalogs now a days?

        Thanks so much! Which reminds me that I need to stock up on some swatch pictures..I know what i’m doing on Sunday haha.
        Right!? The only plus about receiving their catalog is that on occasion it will come with a coupon or two! Other than that, it’s just a waste of paper- I haven’t gotten one in years!

    You’re liking the Tarte eyelash curler? I swore off eyelash curlers after one accidentally pulled out a bunch of my eyelashes (I had to wear false lashes for a few weeks). But it was a drugstore brand eyelash curler. I am wondering if the high end ones might be safer.

    • ClassicMaggie says

      I do like it a lot! I lost a bunch of eyelashes a few weeks ago too, thanks to an eyelash curler. Previously I was using a Sephora one and one of the silicone rings in the handle flung out and made my hand slip just as I was pressing down on my lashes, and it ripped a bunch out. I won’t buy another eyelash curler designed like that again, which is why I bought the Tarte one.

      I’ve personally had better luck with higher end ones but I can see why you’d be nervous about them all together!
