What’s going on with me:
It’s the first This & That Friday of September! I love Fall but I just feel like it’s coming too fast this year. Maybe because we had kind of crappy Summer weather-wise. Technically it’s not officially Fall until September 22 but you wouldn’t know it here in Calgary – the temperature here yesterday was in the single digits! Plus the leaves are already changing and falling. It’s only the first week in September! STOP!
My second course in Graphic Design begins tomorrow! The next few months are going to be really busy for me – I’ve got classes almost every weekend and several nights during the week. I’d say that I’m going to need to scale my blogging back but let’s be honest, have I ever been able to keep a consistent blog schedule? #masterofprocrastination This might actually force me to keep a regular schedule…but I won’t jinx myself. I’m thinking twice a week – haven’t quite figured out which two days that’ll be yet.
Exciting news – I’m going to be announcing my new blog name next week! I think I’ve got a name that will represent my blog well – although it’s going to be hard to say goodbye to Classic Maggie. Almost makes me sad to think about it…but I know it’s the right thing to do. It’s silly how attached we can get to things, isn’t it? PS – once my new blog name launches my giveaway will commence shortly thereafter! 🙂
Have you seen/heard?
I really want to try this mermaid hair tutorial but it seems like so much work. So pretty though, right?
Why is crushed velvet trying to make a comeback? Someone needs to put a stop to this right now. That needs to stay in the 90’s where it belongs.
I cannot believe this woman is 98 years old! I love her advice…and I need to start doing yoga.
I did visit Ulta on my trip and I’m not going to lie, it was a pretty amazing place. I didn’t get everything I intended for a few reasons – they didn’t have what I wanted in stock, I changed my mind and/or I checked my VISA about halfway through my trip and almost fainted when I saw the exchange rate I was being charged for everything. Seriously, it physically hurt. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t leave there empty handed but I scaled it back a bit. Post on what I picked up coming soon…
Okay, I know this is a weird one, but…how is it fair that not only do we not have Ulta in Canada, we also do not have Cheez-It’s? The Tabasco-flavoured ones are my favourite so anytime I go to the States I always have to get a box of them if I can find them. We have Cheese Nips here in Canada, but they don’t even come close to comparing, nor do they come in all the fab flavours of Cheez-Its. Plus Cheez-Its is fun to say. 😛
Do you like rootbeer? Do you like alcohol? If you answered yes to both, then I’d like to introduce you to Not Your Father’s Root Beer, if you’re not already acquainted. Omg these are soooooooo delicious! These can be a little dangerous because you can’t taste the alcohol in them! If you like sweet drinks, I totally recommend giving them a try.
This top was the only clothing purchase I made on our trip and it was a good one – it’s so comfy! Plus I can never resist ombre anything!
I had a lemon bar from Model Bakery in Napa and I’ve never tasted a lemon bar like it – it was literally out of this world (potentially the most delicious thing I ate the entire trip). Fall and winter = cooking and baking for me so I’d love to give some of their recipes from their cookbook a try at home.
So I signed up for Ebates earlier this year…and I just received a cheque for $150 in the mail! Most of that is from booking a trip via Expedia a few months ago but if you shop online for anything, you NEED to sign up. I was skeptical at first, but there’s literally nothing shady about it, it’s basically just free money! Do it!
I recently picked up a pair of leggings at Express – and wow am I impressed! They fit so well and are so comfy!
Favourite Youtube video of the week….
I have to give credit where credit is due – I saw this feature on Curly.Spring.Blossom’s blog (ps – follow her!) and I thought it was a great idea, so I’m stealing it. I’m going to award my first one to Coffee Break with Dani’s Juvia’s Place Palette Review and Swatch video – mainly because I’m in love with the look she created! Plus that palette looks amazing! Oh and Dani is one of my favourite You-tubers! 🙂
Need to catch up on my posts? Here’s what I’ve been up to the last few weeks:
Yup, that’s one measley post…
Have a fantastic weekend!
