What’s going on with me:

Maggie’s birthday is next weekend and she’s turning 10!  Sniff…I wish I could just pause time.  Given that it’s a milestone birthday, I think we’re going to throw her a little party at home.  We’ll probably take her for a walk, make her a steak and give her a little ice cream for dinner.  I’ve been trying to decide what to get her but what do you get the dog that has everything.  And yes, I know I’m a little nuts over my dog.  But she’s my baby! #crazydoglady

Anyone following Big Brother this season?  I’m so torn on who to root for – I kinda like Pauly, and I have a love/hate relationship with Frank. but it’d be nice to see a girl win for once!  Unfortunately they always seem to get too distracted by the showmances.

I might pay a visit to Nordstrom this weekend to check out their epic anniversary sale; I’m not sure what is available in Canada vs the US but Nouveau Cheap has a good list of all the beauty items here.

Have you seen?

Kurig Kold Drink Maker:  I saw these in a Costco magazine that came in the mail and they sounded SO COOL!  Unfortunately it sounds like it didn’t quite hit the mark and they’ve discontinued it for the time being.  If they actually figure this thing out I’m definitely going to want one.

That Nintendo is releasing the NES Classic Edition which is basically a mini Classic Nintendo pre-loaded with a bunch of classic games.  I totally want one of these!  I need to play ExciteBike again!  Would make a great Christmas list (sorry I mentioned Christmas in July).

Highly recommend…

This steak marinade literally lives up to its name – it is so.freaking.good I wanted to drink it.

The Secret Life of Pets!  We went and saw it a few weekends ago and it was so good!  Totally met my expectations (and they were high).

Recent purchases…

PC Loads of Cookies N Cream Light Ice Cream Bars:  OMG – these are like a cross between a white chocolate covered oreo cookie and a Hershey’s Cookies & Cream chocolate bar.  Also they contain light ice cream which basically means zero calories.  Right?  #iwish

Eccolo 2017 Planner: I got this planner from Homesense a few weeks ago and it’s been fabulous for keeping me organized, particularly when it comes to my blog.  Plus it was a steal for $9.99!

An update on the Wet & Wild Proline Felt Tip Eyeliner –  So I raved about this in my last This & That Friday post, but I’m sad to say that I tried to use it this week and it’s already dried up.  🙁  Seems like this is a common problem but I didn’t have it stored upside down, so I might have to purchase another one and see if that makes a difference.  Stay tuned!

Currently coveting…

RW & Co. Striped Maxi Dress (Bordeaux):  Because I’m a sucker for stripes!

First Comes Love – Emily Griffin: One of my favourite author’s has a new book out – can’t wait to read this!

Marc Jacobs Beauty Air Blush Soft Glow Duo: I’ve haven’t tried anything from Marc Jacobs cosmetics line (although there are plenty of his products on my list) but these just look so pretty!

  1. Aww Maggie doesn’t look a day over 5! 🙂 She won’t even know why she’s getting all the treats on her birthday. She will wonder if she did something good lol. We used to give our dog a steak too, and she was like um, is this a trick, I’m not supposed to have human food. 😛
    Our Nordstrom doesn’t open until Sept, I can hardly wait! Do they have makeup brands that are unique to them? I’m still trying to figure out if they’re just another Holts.

    1. Maggie actually gets human food regularly – she gets eggs once or twice a week and occasionally chicken/meat on a weekend. She absolutely loves cheese too. She’s slightly spoiled haha! 😉

      I went to the Nordstrom sale and left with a pair of lounge pants. None of the makeup kits interested me, except for a Mac brush set that was already sold out. 🙁 I don’t shop a lot at Holt so I’m not sure how they compare but I suspect they’re similar, although Nordstrom might be a little more reasonable price-wise. I got sucked into buying $9 candy at Sugarfina though…
