I’m Baaackkkk

Okay WOW!

I haven’t posted in MONTHS, when letting my blog go a couple days without a post used to bug me.

Granted I’ve had a bit of a hectic year some of which I will not share – but I am going to try to write again, update anyone out there reading and hopefully post much more in the coming weeks (though, probably not every day).

So where have I been?

Well the year started out with the company I had been working for, restructuring – giving me two options; move to part time, or take a severance package – I opted with the package. Three days later, I sold my motorcycle and four days after that, I went to Florida for a week since I had never been able to take advantage of a last minute travel deal before.

March took me to Washington D.C. to see the Toronto Maple Leafs play.

Fast forward to May when I finally got another job (part time). I left that job for another and I recently left that job for my current one… one I love… Sephora.

Now in between these highlights, I kept busy (to name a few):

– I applied for other jobs

– I got my gun licence and first aid certificate to apply for a job.

– I travelled to NYC

– I travelled to San Francisco

It’s been a busy year so far, with a lot of high-highs and a few lows and with all the instability, I just couldn’t find the will to write. But it’s almost the end of the year and I can’t wait for 2015.

Back to Sephora though:

For those of you who don’t know, I went to school for Cosmetic Techniques and Management, I never really did anything with that as I had a stable job, but everything happens for a reason and now I am working for a company where I go to work excited, where I can do bold makeup if I want and still fit right in. One that also allows me to feed my makeup obsession…. So you can look forward to some makeup favourites coming soon ;).

Sorry to have neglected this site, but I’m back now!

I’ll post in a couple days with the things I’ve been loving this fall!

Let me know if you want to see anything in particular!

New Products!

Hey everyone!!

It’s been a busy month, but I currently have extra time on my hands, so I am pretty much back! haha.

I went to Florida on a last minute deal at the beginning of the month – it was SO much fun, cheap and sporadic, I would go again in a heartbeat and I will be going to Washington D.C. to see the Toronto Maple Leafs play mid March, so I’ll probably do a combined post about that with pictures!

Now onto the post:

Over the last couple months for my skin I’ve been using the Michael Todd True organics skin care line and it worked pretty well. I liked it because it’s 97% organic, however I had a couple cons to go along with it- though it was no where near as bad as in the past, I would still breakout, I’d have to order it online, and the shipping time would vary – so it might come in a couple days one time, and 2 weeks the next. So after doing some research, I’ve decided to switch over to the Kate Somerville line.

Now for the exciting (to me) news!

Along with switching to Kate Somerville, I’ve decided to invest in some other skin care products I’ve never tried, but heard amazing things about!

The first one being ClarisonicIf you haven’t heard of it, it’s apparently AMAZING, especially if you have skin like mine (acne prone) or if you just want to make your skin glow. I’ve only used it twice so far, and have taken before pictures (so the review WILL come!) I’ll give it a couple weeks, because apparently skin goes through a purging faze, where it breaks out pretty badly for a couple weeks, so once it goes through that (I’ll take pictures as well) I’ll review it. So far, I like how my clean my skin feels after using it.

The second product (that I just ordered today, so I have NOT tried it yet) is the PMD (Personal Micro Derm System) I am SO excited to try it, as I have heard amazing things about it. As I mentioned before in my skin care post, I used to have reallllllly bad acne, which has left my skin with scarring as well as a very uneven skin texture (has sort of what I call, divots), which this device should help with. So I’m VERY excited to try that!

I’ve linked to the websites and pictures to the devices I personally purchased, I’d say I’ll probably have my review up by the end of march!

 

 

Hope you’ve enjoyed this post, if you’ve tried any of the products, please let me know you’re experience and if you liked them!
