This & That Fridays – May 12

what’s going on with me…

We’ve been having some pretty awesome weather this week and I’ve been loving it.  There’s tulips everywhere and the trees are starting to get their leaves and it’s even rained a few times – I love the smell of rain in the Spring!

have you seen/tried/heard?…

Express is closing all of it’s stores in Canada and I’m so sad about it.  I shop there all the time – their leggings and summer dresses are my favourite. 🙁

NARS has made a lipstick version of their Orgasm blush, in addition to a collection of 4 really beautifully looking liquid blushes.  I want all of them.

Cinnamon flavoured Pepsi?  It sounds disgusting and heartburn inducing yet intriguing.

We started Riverdale on Netflix and I’m not sure how I feel about it.  It’s reminds me a lot of a soap opera but there’s something about it that makes me want to keep watching.

recent purchases…

I picked up this Boots No.7 serum last weekend at Shoppers in the clearance section.  It was marked down to $6 or $7 which was a great deal because it’s pretty awesome.  I totally notice the difference in my pores after applying it and it works really well as a makeup base.

I think I’ve found my new favourite t-shirt from American Eagle – these are so soft!

Allergy season is upon us and we’re usually hit pretty hard with them in our household.  A while back I noticed that Saje had an allergy release line so last weekend I picked up their spray.  D has used it a couple times already and I’m happy to report it actually works!  It only lasts a few hours at a time and they told me in-store that the rollerball lasts longer so I might have to try that next time.  Overall though I’m impressed – at least so far!

currently coveting…

Have you ever tried American Eagle’s yoga pants?  I tried a pair on last weekend and they seemed pretty great.  I’m just waiting for a sale because I’m cheap!

Such a cute (and insanely expensive) blush/highlighter combo!

OMG there is a Mr. Men/Little Miss x LeSportSac collab – so adorable!

youtuber of the moment

Lisa Stevens

I recently discovered Lisa and I’ve really been enjoying her videos.  She comes across as honest and pretty knowledgable in all things makeup (she works at a Sephora within JC Penney).  I really like her Shop My Stash series where she goes through her stash and selects products to use for a quarter and then provides updates for how she did in the previous quarter.  Check her out if you don’t already! 🙂

    I have NARS Orgasm nail polish! It’s not that great, actually….

    I tried the first ep of Riverdale but the teen drama out me off. I mean, I know it was a teen drama going in, so IDK what I was expecting! LOL. I love the premise, though, make a detective drama out of the Archie comics!

    Cinnamon Pepsi sounds interesting but I’m allergic to fake cinnamon flavor, so I think I’ll have to give it a pass.

    I spotted that Burberry palette, too! Gosh it’s pretty 🙂

      Oh I didn’t know they made a nail polish – too bad it’s not great. The lipstick looks pretty but I likely won’t splurge on it.
      I used to LOVE Archie comics growing up so I was kind of excited to see what Riverdale was all about. It’s darker than I expected but also a little cheesy.
      That Burberry palette is definitely a luxurious treat!
