Upcoming Updates! (And a cupcake card ♥)

Hello! :)

So I haven't posted anything in a looooooong while. I've started working and it's been tiring me out, so I apologize for the lack of updates. Excuses aside, I've missed blogging a lot :(

However that means I have lots of new things to post up! Right now though I'm working on a birthday card for my roommate so I will update with pictures super soon (so you can make your own too)

I promise I will update more often! Check back soon :)

Simple Saturdays

Good Afternoon :D

It's finally the weekend! So sit back, relax, and enjoy the beautiful, sunny day!

Clear Skies :)

Saturdays for me are for sleeping in, work, and shopping haha. Although today I didn't get to sleep in because I had to go for an orientation for a summer volunteer position. Still have my students to teach and then I'm off to Vaughn Mills! (horray!)

Oh and Paul Rudd is the guy of the week :P

Paul Rudd ♥
Did you know he's 42?! Holy begeesus! What a hunk ;)

Have a super weekend :D!

[Review] L'oreal's Colour Riche Lipstick in Burning Rose (286)

(Swatch - no flash)
Here's the first makeup post of the summer! :)

Sugar-y Friday! (And Wonderland Wednesday!)

The infamous Canada's Wonderland's mountains/waterfall

I apologize for not posting over the past few days, they were really busy. I will do better next week! The L'oreal Colour Riche Lipstick post is coming up right after this one!

The Bohemeth :o
So I went to Wonderland with a few friends this Wednesday and we had a blast! The weather was perfect and there was barely any lines (because it's a school day) so we got to go on all the rides we wanted.

Sad part was that their new ride, Windseeker, wasn't open yet :(

But if you're looking for a place to go this summer, Canada's Wonderland is a great place to check out :)

The Bat! - One of my favorites ♥
Riptide (or as I know it, the Cliffhanger)
Entrance to the Wild Beast
Can't wait for the weekend to start, do you guys all realize that it's already the 17th of June? MAN did the month go by fast! What are some of your plans for this weekend? I hope it's fun and exciting!

Make-Up Monday!

Some green tea with my breakfast gets me going ♥

Good Morning!

Hope that you all are having a great start to your day because I sure am :) Went for a run this morning. Days with morning runs are always good! (wait, not sure if that came out right haha)

Mondays are also great to start new things! Today I will be starting Crest Whitestrips! I'll be updating on the process and results daily.

Yesterday I went for a mini makeup spree at Shoppers Drug Mart (one of my favorite drugstores of all time). They have really great deals going on this week, some of my favorites - but can not buy any more because I have too much - are:

♠ Rimmel Lash Maxxx Mascara : $3.99
♠ Rimmel Glam Eyes Mono Eyeshadow : $3.99
♠ (NEW!) Maybelline Falsies Flared Mascara : $4.99
*In fact, tons of Maybelline and Rimmel products are on sale this week! So it's a great time to stock up :)

- Cottage Cheese : $2.99

I had to put many products back because I really couldn't have another mascara or eye shadow in my collection.

Today's make-up review will be on L'oreal's Colour Riche Lipstick. Check back soon for the post (I'm still talking pictures!)

Talk soon!

Are you as excited as I am? See you tomorrow! ♥

Friday&Saturday catch-up!

Hello world!

Some African Red Bush Tazo tea from yesterday afternoon ♥

It's 5:30pm already and today has been quite busy. I feel the need to go get myself one of those delicious teas to re-energize myself for the rest of the day.

Today is Saturday (and Sunday comes after... wards) and I apologize for not posting yesterday, I got caught up in a LOT of homework. Same with today, but I realized that I needed a break so here I am!

Friday recap in less than 3:
Went to class and promised myself the night before that I would be more productive and outgoing, so I smiled at the guy who always sits beside me and we had a few chuckles at what the prof said. Didn't go teach because I cancelled it last week for the massive amount of homework I had (blah), and really did spend the rest of the night doing homework till 1 in the morning. Got my piano practicing done in the afternoon though, HORRAY!

recap in less than 3:
Shopping in the morning. Homework in the afternoon. MORE homework to come at night, and I didn't even get to practice piano yet :(.

Highlight of the day
Again, SHOPPING! (I'm telling ya, it's my favorite sport!)

What I got:
♥ Lush tin
♥ Night cream / serums

a) The Lush tin was for my message bar that I got in Ottawa a month ago. I originally kept the bar in the bag that it came in, but my dorm room is so dusty that when I took out the bar, it had a layer of dust on it. So I decided that it was time for a tin.

I like shiny, non-dusty things.

PS. The bar itself is phenomenal! It's moisturizing and smells so organic ☺ Definitely worth giving a try! (Just be sure to buy a Lush tin too!)

b) The Body Shop is currently having a promotion, buy any three items in the store for $30! (Excluding gift sets and makeup) YES this means the body butters, body washes, face products, EVERYTHING! And so, I got myself a new night cream and two face serums, one for me and one for my mommy :)

I'll tell you how it goes once I give them a try. My previous experience with the face products from The Body Shop has been good, so hopefully these would be good too.

Well, you have all just been caught up on my weekend so far. How has your week been? What are some of your weekend plans? I know that mine is just going to consist of more homework. WHY school? WHY must you decide to have everything due on the same week? Seriously the amount of homework atm is ridiculous.

Hope that you're having a fantastic, stress-free, homework-free weekend! (unlike yours truly)

{Tea-time Thursday} + Retail Therapy!

Hi Everyone! :)

Welcome to Catch Up! ; a place where I catch myself up on what's going on in life because as you know, life gets hectic sometimes :P

recap in less than 3:
Today was busy; 8:30 am classes are never fun, but I made it! Aside from boring class, I went to the public school in which I'm hoping to complete my practicum in (fingers crossed!) and then off to work. Then some shopping, visited the next year (actually MAY) house, and now home for the night to complete some work :)

Today I tried some Forbidden Fruit tea from David'sTea. It was delicious! There were hints of fig, honeydew and watermelon; there were also carrots and safflower pedals, but those were hard to taste. Definitely a good choice for anyone who likes a sweet fruity tea!

highlight of the day:
SHOPPING of course!

What I got:
♥ Tights
♥ Knock-Knock note pads
♥ The Walking Dead comics

a) Love the tights, they were on sale at Urban Outfitters for $5 - originally $16! (If you did not know, I only buy clothes on sale, I'm too much of a cheap-o to pay full price for anything... also too poor.)

See the bow? It's just the cutest thing. :)

b) The Knock-Knock note pads were from Urban Outfitters too, each were $2.99 (AGAIN, on sale!). The blue one says "Check Yourself" and the brown one says "Go to Hell". I can imagine these to be useful during the most inappropriate times.

"Check yo' self before you wreck yo' self, fool"

The "you already look it" option is like me every morning, it's so great.

c) And of course, the Walking Dead comics (LOVE!) are my favorite purchases today :P. I was hooked on these all last weekend, took me 3 days to finish all 83 issues that they've released and so I NEEDED to get my own copies!

Got the most recent two issues (it was all they had at the comic book store, you should have seen the strange look the guy at the cash register gave me when I walked in. The place also smelled like a nerdy-boy. You know what I'm talking about.)

So yeah, that was my day. Seemed to be pretty good. How was your day? Did you try out a new flavor of tea like I did? Or stick to a classic? (Although I highly doubt anyone to read this post as it is my first one, please comment if you are reading!)

Have a beauteaful Thursday! :)
