We had a full blown snowpocalypse that started Wednesday night and lasted into yesterday – I’d estimate at our house we got at least 30 cm of snow. I spent hours shoveling and we are not allowed to get any more snow because we don’t have anywhere else to put it! We have snowbanks 3-4 feet tall all around our house. Also, I’m going on strike, I’m done with shoveling snow for the rest of the year.
Any Valentine’s Day plans for you? We’re not big V-Day celebrators, we skip gifts and usually go for dinner before or after the actual day itself. This year I think we’re just going to go to a movie, which one is TBD. I’m completely okay with having movie theatre popcorn for dinner!
I made this lemon blueberry french toast recipe last weekend and while it was good, I think sweet breakfast dishes are becoming less appealing to me as I get older. It used to be all I wanted but now I’ll take an savoury dish anyday.
I found a Sigma brush at Winners last week for $14.99! This is my first time trying anything Sigma and I’ve used it a few times so far, and it’s pretty good!
Superstore had Maybelline’s Collossal Big Shot mascara on last week (finally!) so I picked it up. I’ve been waiting for it to go on sale for weeks; I included it in my February Makeup Focus.
Also, makeup-related, I needed another liquid eyeliner, so I repurchased my favourite Clinque Pretty Easy Liquid Eyeliner a few weeks back. I do enjoy it but I definitely prefer it more when it’s dried out a bit.
I really really want
one both of Milani’s newest eyeshadow palettes. The reviews have been really positive and they look so pretty! I don’t expect to see them here in Canada, we never seem to get the newest releases from them.
This sleep therapy speaker looks so cool – and it’s on sale!
Okay, back to eyeshadow palettes – look at this new Viseart palette! Isn’t it stunning? Too bad it’s a Beautylish exclusive.
I so wish we had Kohl’s in Canada – every year I lust over Lauren Conrad’s newest collection. That dress is so perfect!
This seems like a great Sephora Favourites kit – minus that Tarte eyeliner (I own it and hate it).
Think I’m going to make Chicken Parmesan this weekend and I think this is the recipe I’m going to try. I always have such good results with any recipe of Tyler Florence.
FUNNIEST PRODUCT OF THE WEEK
This show is kind of a mix between Boardwalk Empire and Sons of Anarchy. It’s set in the 1920’s and it’s all about a gang called the Peaky Blinders. It took me a little bit to get into it but now I’m hooked – and we’re almost at the end of the last available season on Netflix.
The Devil Wears Prada is probably one of my favourite books and movies of all time; as such, I keep trying to find something on the same level written by Lauren but I haven’t been successful. This was no exception. It was a stereotypical chic-lit but it revolved a lot around tennis which I don’t really have much of an interest in. I read it but I had to force myself to do so which is never a sign of a good book for me; unless you really enjoy tennis, I’d pass on this one.
What I’m reading next:
The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up – Marie Kondo (are you even a blogger if you haven’t read this book?
My Name is Lucy Barton – Elizabeth Strout
Best of 2017: Lifestyle
A Weekend in Nashville
Review: Viseart Theory Palette – Amaethyst
Have a wonderful weekend!
