My favourite things!

So sorry for not posting recently. I moved in to my new apartment and have yet to get internet! Thankfully I have people willing to let me use theirs 🙂

This is a list of my 5 favourite things at the moment! These are things that I feel like I can’t live without right now. Some of them are makeup and some of them are other things but I love them all and want to share them with you!

Burts Bees Chapstick

IMG_2962I cannot go anywhere without it. I have tried other chapsticks but they feel greasier or lighter so I end up using it more often and having to buy another one so soon. I love the way this one is a little waxier and it stays where I put and it my hair doesn’t get stuck in my mouth. AND it actually keeps my lips from getting dry even in the worst cold weather (I’m talking like -20). I go through about 3-4 sticks a year, and yes I actually USE THE WHOLE THING. I have completely used up a few of them instead of losing them which makes me feel like a huge winner all day every day.

Garnier BB Cream

This is something that I tried out in the fall and I LOVE IT. I’m still trying IMG_2963.JPGto find products that I like using on my skin. I was using a foundation in the summer but it was not agreeing with my skin so I decided to try a BB cream instead and see how that worked. I got one that has acne cream built into it and it works like a tinted moisturizer. My skin is a lot happier and clearer now that I have stopped putting such heavy make up on it and I still get the even tone look and some decent coverage from it as well. This is something that I like to use as an everyday foundation in a way and I have a powder mineral foundation that I use for better coverage. I only use a little at a time and I probably won’t need to buy a new until I need to get my ‘summer colour’.

  • I do get a bit shiny sometimes though so I may consider switching to a matte BB cream once this tube is finished

Hair Wand

IMG_2965I got this hair wand when I was in fourth year university. I knew someone who had one and they let my try it and I fell in love with it. My hair is very stubborn, and trying to curl it was a huge thing. I basically never curled my hair unless I had a professional doing it for me because they curls would fall out after an hour no matter what I did. I got this one from Walmart for like $20!! It is not the typical cone shape (which I hate because my hair always slides off) it is an oval or ‘eliptical shape’. I find that it gives the hair a more softer curl which is what I prefer. I also find that I can use it and not put any product or hair spray in it and I will still have the curls the next day. This also means that my boyfriend can touch my hair and it won’t be either ‘crunchy’ or ‘waxy’ which is a bonus. And yes I can use my flat iron to curl my hair but I like that wand as it gives better results and I find that it is less damaging than the flat iron or curling iron because I
don’t have to do multiple passes at trying to curl a piece of hair.

MAC Concealer

This is something that I found about 2 years ago. I was having some skin IMG_2964issues and I wanted to find a concealer that actually worked to cover the blemishes on my skin but the scars they left as well. My skin scars easily but then after a few months-year they fade away. I found this while watch a youtube video of a girl who demo’ed the product on her skin and I really liked how it worked. I decided to go to the MAC store get colour matched and try it out. It actually worked so well that on days when  my skin is behaving I only need the concealer and nothing else! My sister and my mom both really liked they way it worked when I used it so they actually bought it as well! The best thing about it is that I can build it up to whatever coverage I need. I could also use it as a foundation if I really wanted to. I go through a little bottle in about 4-6 months depending on my usage of it. It is ~$25 but I feel that for what I get out of it the cost it is totally worth it.

David’s Tea (allllll the tea)

IMG_2966I was originally going to only post about my travel thermos from David’s Tea but lets be real, I love everything about David’s Tea.The thermos was a gift from my sister and it is amazing. It’s almost too amazing. It keeps thing hot so well that I actually have to be careful when drinking out of it so that I don’t burn my tongue (which I have done on many occasions :() They have so many amazing teas and I am always trying new ones when I go in. Right now my new obsession is Matcha, but sadly my tin is almost empty which means I need to buy more! I am slowly building a lovely tea collection and I love they’re mugs and other goodies! I am one of those people that will drink tea and hot chocolate all year round regardless of the weather so David’s Tea is perfect with its seasonal teas!
