Philosophy Living Grace Set

Julie and I having swalliesI’m hooked. My co-workers are hooked. I’ve got them all into the Philosophy products. My co-worker Julie and I (ahem, shown above—keeping things real with a brewski in hand) are huge fans of the Philosophy Living Grace set.

If I didn’t love the scent so much, I totally would’ve given it to her. Box-of-Living-GraceBut I just simply can’t give it away. It’s my signature scent.

Living Grace was the very first perfume I’ve ever finished. In my entire life, people!Philosophy-Living-Grace

I enjoy the products so much that I keep it out on my clean desk to display all the time. Minus the perfume, that goes in the bathroom and I spray some on me whenever I see fit. Which can be upwards to a few times per day. Oops.Living-Grace-Philosophy

From my instagram. Christmas tree, little decorations, and bam — philosophy stuff. Go figure.

Sephora VIB haul

My Sephora online order finally came in. I went shopping in the store but ended up wanting to buy a big ol’ size bottle of the Purity cleanser. I heard that it came with a pump if you got the largest one. But mine didn’t end up shipping with one. So maybe they don’t do it anymore?

I had just gotten back from my girls weekend down in the USA and the next few days later, Sephora e-mails us VIB card-holders telling them we get 20% off anything and everything. Well goodie. I saved some dollars down in the states buying a few things. But I could save a lot more buying even MORE stuff from the sale. So that’s exactly what I did.Sephora-VIB-sale

I had nothing on my list to buy. But I certainly went out and got a lot of things for something I didn’t really need. Oops?

Alfie kinda likes Sephora too.

Make Up For Ever: Glitz and Glam with an extravagant set

If you’re anything like me around the holidays, you want to have some fresh new make up to try out and wear at fancy Christmas parties or gatherings with friends. Make Up For Ever has come out with a few holiday sets for the season. Today I’ll be telling you about “The Extravagant Glamour Kit” from them. make-up-for-ever-Extravagant-Glamour-Set

The Extravagant Glamour Kit includes:

• Aqua Eyes #0L Matte Black
• Smoky Extravagant in Black
• Rouge Artist Intense #43 Satin Vibrant Red
Cost: $44 CDN at Sephora ($72 Value)

I thought I would be terrified to wear a bold lip colour, but after doing a 24 day challenge swatching lipsticks from another brand, I have come to realize that the brighter, more fun shades actually are my favourite out of most of the colours. I don’t think you require confidence to pull off a bold lip colour. I think you plain and simply need to get over how “it doesn’t look good on me” and just rock them dang lips, girl. I honestly haven’t seen anyone who looked silly in a bold colour that suited them. The #43 Satin Vibrant Red is a gorgeous shade to wear and will be so completely long lasting.

Then again, if you really don’t want to wear a bright lip — then apply some gorgeous eyeliner in matte black (which comes in the kit, conveniently) and top it off with Make Up For Ever’s newest mascara, smoky extravagant. I personally love to play up my eyes, and as you guys already know I’m a huge fan of the mascaras by Make Up For Ever. They never disappoint.

And lastly, one of you lucky Canadian readers will be winning this Extravagant Glamour Kit from Make Up For Ever. Use it on yourself this holiday season, or wrap it up and give it to one of your friends!
