This & That Fridays – February 17

Woo hoo it’s the long weekend, I think in most of Canada at least!  That extra day makes such a difference!

what’s going on with me…

Still working through my blog issues….#nofurthercomment

The weather this week has been amazing – we were into the double digits a few times this week.  It’s given me Spring Fever although it’s supposed to cool off this weekend.  Definitely helped in melting our 25+ cm of snow we got last week!

have you seen/tried/heard?…

Becca has a new Shimmering Skin Perfector shade and it looks gorgeous!  Even though I’m trying to scale back on makeup purchases I might just have to splurge on this one!

I’m totally trying this method the next time I make mashed potatoes

I tried Briogeo’s Don’t Despair, Repair Deep Conditioning Mask last week and I was amazed at what it did to my hair.  I usually can’t handle deep conditioners – my hair is much too fine and gets weighed down by them.  This one is different – it left my hair so soft and sleek but it still had body and volume.  I just have a foil packet sample of it so if once I use that up and I’m still seeing the same results, I’m picking up the full-size for sure!

Ed Sheeran released another new song today!  Can’t wait for the full album.

recent purchases…

Um I may have purchased yet another Indigo Super Soft throw…I have an addiction, I’ll admit it.  I have on our bed, one on the futon in my office and one on the chair in my office.  They’re on sale for 50% right now so now’s the time to get one!

Last week I came across a Lumee Case at Winners for $30 for my iPhone.  I snatched it up because, you know, all the celebrities have them.  I ended up returning it.  I found the case really bulky and it was super hard to remove.  Plus how many selfies do I actually take in the dark?

currently coveting…

This shirt!

Have you ever tried a dry conditioner?  I’ve been wanting to try one for a while now and I see that Cake just released one!  I bet it smells delicious!

I’m super intrigued by some of the dresses I’m seeing on Old Navy‘s website, particularly this Crew Neck Tee Dress and this Fit & Flare Cami Dress.  Need to head in there and try them on though because their sizing is all over the place.

Cargo has a Hawaii-themed eyeshadow palette?  It looks beautiful!

blogger of the moment…

fivezero: Illamasqua — Nail Varnish — Poke

If I ever need inspiration to do my nails or for a new nail polish colour, I head to Chris’ blog.  She has the most amazing nail polish collection (she’s been collecting for TWENTY years!) and even features a Nail Polish Library & Organizer on her blog.  She’s quite the dedicated nail polish enthusiast but she also does other beauty-related posts.

I also follow her on social media and I’ve been drooling over her swatches lately.  I’m supremely jealous over her perfect nail polish application – and I’ve begged her many times to come and do my nails for me but she doesn’t seem into that idea for some reason 😉

Anyways, please give her a follow – you won’t regret it!
