August & September Empties

August & September Empties

I finished up a lot of products in the last two months, which is great. For the rest of the year, and hopefully into 2020 I will focus on finishing up products I already have instead of using 3 or 4 different face washes or […]

Influenster Voxbox – Kat Von D True Portrait Foundation

Influenster Voxbox – Kat Von D True Portrait Foundation

I received these products complimentary from Influenster and Kat Von D for review. I was looking forward to trying a new high-end foundation. I don’t often buy high-end foundation unless it’s on sale, so it was great that this one was coming to my door. […]

Drag Race UK

RuPaul’s Drag Race has finally made it across the pond. The first two episodes have been a lot of fun. I am biased because I feel like a British (or Northern Irish!) accent makes everything better.

I think the cast has been great. I love that they went with 10 queens and we can really focus on them. There seems to be a clear divide in social media queens and performing queens which seems to be more prominent than on American seasons. This is pretty evident in the Lip Sync For Your Life performances. They have been, uh, rough.

I’m really excited to see where the rest of this season goes.

Schitt’s Creek

I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to watch this show. It is unbelievable.

I just finished the third season, and I felt that this season is where the characters really began to learn and grow from the mistakes they’ve made in the past. They’ve been able to become better people and closer as a family. All without losing that ‘Rose’ charm that we love.

The writing in this show is truly outstanding. There are so many great quotes in every single episode. I laugh out loud every time I watch this show. But it doesn’t sacrifice real, genuine moments just for laughs. It might be a perfect show???

Top Chef Charleston

In trying to find something to have on during the day while working, I have turned to Top Chef Charleston. It was the first season I watched while it was on. It has a great group of returnees, and a pretty decent cast of newbies with a few standouts (hi Jim!!!!).

I always love the idea of a Fan vs Favourites season of any show, but the veterans always have a huge upper hand in the competition. At this point I’d rather just see an all newbies or all returnees season.

FabFitFun Starter Box Fall 2019

FabFitFun Starter Box Fall 2019

I love a good subscription box. I’ve been wanting to try FabFitFun for ages, but the price (plus shipping and exchange) has always been a deterrent for me. Sure, you get a lot of stuff with a high value, but if I don’t use it, […]

Survivor We’re a couple weeks into the new Survivor season, and I’ve been enjoying it so far. I didn’t have high hopes about the Island of the Idols twist. And I’m still not totally on board with it. The cast so far has been really […]

September Reads

September Reads

September was a really crazy month. My work schedule was packed, and that mixed with other events, commitments, etc made it tough to do much reading. Also, most of my holds are still like, 6 months away from getting to me. Sometimes I feel like when there isn’t pressure to finish a book within a certain timeline, I don’t start it.

Anyway, I could use some book recommendations. You can probably guess what kind of books I’m into based on the months of book reviews here on my blog. Preferably not super new releases, because I don’t need my holds list getting any longer without an end in sight.

The Proposal by Jasmine Guillory

3.5 Stars

Speaking of my holds list, this one was on there for a long time.

Nikole Paterson is a freelance writer in a very casual relationship with a typical LA model. So needless to say she was pretty surprised when he proposed to her in a very public setting, at a Dodgers game. This was a life-changing moment for Nikole, and the rest of the story unfold from there.

I think when I have to wait a long time to read a book, I have higher expectations. It’s super popular so I’m going to love it! And while I liked it, I didn’t love it. I don’t think I would re-read this book, but I am interested to read some other stories by Jasmine Guillory. The story was pretty formulaic, but with some fun little twists that kept me going. Some of the writing felt a little clunky in some places (but who am I to judge?)

Hustlers I know, I went to go see a movie in theatres, I can’t believe it either. With all the hype surrounding the movie, and with the absolutely unreal, star-studded cast, I felt like I couldn’t miss it. Especially now that I have Tuesdays free […]

Dancing with the Stars Yeah, I don’t even know who I am anymore. This week I tuned into one of my Grandmother’s favourite shows, because it just happened to be the one that was on when I turned on the TV. I like watching dance, […]

The Challenge

The newest season of The Challenge started a few weeks ago. This season we see the Americans face off against the Brits. I love seeing a team challenge, we haven’t seen one in ages. I don’t have high hopes that it will stay teams until the very end, though. Like with any season of The Challenge, there’s been lots of drama so far. I’m really enjoying this season even though we’re only a few episodes in.

Are You The One

The ‘come one, come all’ theme of this season was exactly what AYTO needed to bring life into a format that’s getting a little stale. Now that the season is over, I can say that it was easily one of my favourites. The cast was fantastic. I liked that it was a smaller cast, so we were able to get to know more people. I’d love to see them do another season like this.

Derry Girls

The second series of Derry Girls came to Netflix a couple months ago. I absolutely fell in love with the first series. It was so funny and endearing, and I was hoping that the second series would live up to it. There was no need to worry. The second series was amazing. I loved it so much. It even brought a little bit of an emotional element into the second half of the series. It was so magical and wonderful. Please watch it.

Schitt’s Creek

I promised in a What I’m Going To Watch This Year post a couple of months ago that I was going to watch Schitt’s Creek. I did start it, but kind of put it on the back burner. Well, I’m back baby. I’m firing through the episodes now. It is such a brilliant show. It sure helps that it’s a Canadian show too!

A (mostly) Colourpop Haul from Ulta

A (mostly) Colourpop Haul from Ulta

Colourpop is one of my favourite makeup brands. It’s incredibly reasonably priced, and I haven’t come across many duds in their line up. It’s not the most easily accessible brand in Canada. With international shipping, duty fees, and exchange rates, the costs can add up. […]
