Well, it’s been a while since I’ve done a T&T Friday post – I was away for a couple of weeks on vacay and I was pretty busy before that so blogging sort of fell off the wayside, as it always does. I’m happy to be back at it though!
Our vacation was kind of a whirlwind – we visited Vegas for a few days, then New Orleans, Miami and finally Grand Cayman Island. There were highlights and lowlights of each place and you can expect a trip diary for each location coming up shortly.
Are you ready for the holidays? I’m pretty much done my shopping and now I just have some baking and wrapping to do. I baked my Toberlone Shortbread this week (and they turned out great!) and this weekend I think I’m going to do my Cherry Cheesecake Squares and attempt Snickerdoodles.
I received an email yesterday from Sephora promoting “Spring Makeup” and it really annoyed me – can you just let me enjoy Christmas? Not that I’m complaining about Spring but c’mon – it’s getting to be a bit much. Thoughts?
After watching and Samantha Jane rave about imPress Press-On nails, I found them at Wal-Mart yesterday and picked up a pair to test out. They were really easy to apply and look fantastic BUT I keep catching and pulling out my hair (seriously OUCH!). I think that might have something to do with how I applied them so hopefully I’ll do better next time – I’m really imPressed though (sorry, had to!).
While in the US I stopped into Express and picked up a couple pairs of their leggings. First a comfy pair – the One Eleven Supersoft; these are so cozy but very thin – you definitely need to wear these with a long top but they are probably the comfiest leggings I’ve ever worn. Then a a fancier Faux Leather pair. I haven’t worn these yet but they seem like they’re going to be pretty comfortable and cute paired with boots and a long sweater.
I also got my hands on Lorac’s Pro 4 palette and I’ve been using it this week – I absolutely love it so far and kind think it might be my new favourite Lorac palette. Review coming soon!
I think I’m going to put myself on a eyeshadow palette hiatus come the New Year but in the meantime I’m just going to lust over this NARS Ignited palette – I’m such a sucker for pink and purple eyeshadows!
How cute are these cable knit mittens from Chapters/Indigo?
I’m trying to cut out dairy but don’t these Oatmeal Cream Cheese Butterscotch bars sound (and look!) amazing! As do these Millionaire Shortbread Cookies (I’d say they’re more of a bar than a cookie but what do I know?)
I’m kind of in love with these Snowflake Candle Holders from Crate & Barrel. They’re somewhat simple but I bet they look beautiful lit up!
MEMES OF THE MOMENT
This book started out interesting and then it became far-fetched, drawn out and boring, which is why it took me weeks to finish it. Wouldn’t recommend.
What I’m reading next:
Monthly Makeup Focus – November

Have a wonderful weekend!
