I took a bit of a blogging break for a month – I was just busy with a few things and wasn’t feeling like blogging all that much, although in general I tend to blog less in the Summer. The break did me good and I’m looking forward to getting back at it.
The plan was to get 3 posts up this week but my domain expired today and I spent the week facilitating a transfer to a new web host. Note to self (and anyone else considering changing web hosts) give yourself plenty of time to transfer! Mine was finally transferred over today but I hit quite a few snags throughout the process and it would have been a disaster if it hadn’t fully transferred over before today. Phew!
What’s on my nails: I’m calling this “reluctantly transitioning to Fall” – OPI Let’s Be Friends (a pale milky pink cream that I find little patchy/streaky – definitely a three coater) with Formula X Perfection (a cream taupe with a hint of purple; amazing formula and a straight-up dupe for Essie’s Merino Cool; too bad these polishes are no longer available) on my ring finger.
I’ve really been wanting a mini backpack for travel but I was (as usual) being pretty picky about what I wanted, but I found exactly what I wanted at American Eagle. I’ve used it a few times already and I love it – it’s the perfect size, lightweight and comfortable to wear.
I needed a new facial cleanser and since I’ve been pretty happy with Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost Gel Cream, I decided to give their Hydrating Gel Cleanser and the Hydrating Serum a try. I’ve been using both for about 3 weeks now and I LOVE them! I’ll probably pick up the eye cream so I can do a review on the full range – it’s a great line!
I love RW&Co’s Natalie pants in the 25 inch length – I have a few pairs of them and I recently picked up a pair in this hot pink colour (even though they describe it as Claret Red) and I love them. Definitely more for Summer though.
I was in Lowes the other night and of course beelined it to their Halloween section. I could have emptied my bank account there, but I think I’m going to need to go back and pick up the telephone – the dial actually works, it rings and a spooky voice speaks to you when you pick up the receiver. It’s so cool!
Absolutely need this t-shirt.
I’ve been watching plenty of Fenty Beauty reviews on YouTube this week (even if you wanted to, they’d be difficult to get away from) and as a lip gloss lover, I very much want to try her gloss. It looks so pretty!
I’m going to attempt this pizza crust this weekend; I like that it’s slightly healthier but hopefully it tastes just as good as regular crust!
Not many of the newly released eyeshadow palettes have interested me, with the exception of Too Faced’s Just Peachy Mattes palette. I want it! I like that it’s warm, but not too warm. The reviews have been pretty positive overall too!
BLOGGER OF THE MOMENT

I haven’t featured a fellow blogger on here for a while so this is long overdue! Today I’m featuring Vanessa Kingston of the blog by the same name. Vanessa blogs about all- things lifestyle from beauty and fashion to mental health and books.
