How was everyone’s Christmas/holiday season? Mine was good – filled with lots of food, naps, family time and being generally lazy! I’m sad that it’s over but it’s probably a good thing – my clothes are definitely a little snug!

Happy 2nd day of 2019! I almost typed 2018 and expect to be doing that for the next month or two 🤷🏼♀️ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ This is a little beauty haul from Boxing Day. Some skincare from @itcosmetics that I’m excited to test out (also love the bag that came with it), a set from @lanolips that I badly need to break into (my lips are SO dry right now!) and some @maccosmeticscanada Fix + (it came in a set of 3 and I gave the rose to my Mom) which I’ve never tried, if you can believe that! Did you score any good deals over the break?
My parents bought us a coffee maker on Boxing Day and I’ve been loving it. It’s the Hamilton Beach Flexbrew Single Serve and you can either use k-cups or ground coffee so I love the flexibility it has! I didn’t think it would be easy to find decaf (via swiss-water method) k-cups but there’s actually more out there than I realized (I’m currently using Tim Horton’s version).
I’m trying to decide what kind of planner I want this year; last year I had an Ecolo that worked pretty well but I’m considering a Bando this year because #stickers (also I love the colour of this one).
I almost picked up this sweater from The Gap on Boxing Day (it was 40% off) but I was concerned about it pilling. I checked the reviews and a few people have confirmed that – it sucks though because it’s such a flattering fit and SO soft!
Has anyone tried The Ordinary’s Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution? I’m so tempted to order it as I’d like to incorporate a toner into my routine.
Ikea meatballs at home? Definitely testing out!
MEMES OF THE MOMENT
I basically love every book Emily Giffin has ever written and this was no exception – I stayed up ’til midnight two nights in a row reading it. The subject matter of this was very relevant to the Me Too movement and I found it interesting.
