What I'm Loving Now: Beauty Products

I'm a complete sucker for beauty products. Whether it's pretty eyeshadows, face masks, or a glittery nail polish, I have a hard time turning them down. So when I head to Winners or Marshalls and check out their beauty section I'm in trouble. I've been having great luck finding MAC, Dr. Jart+ face masks, and Philosophy products there recently. This only keeps me coming back to search for more.

These are some of my favourite beauty products I've picked up recently (both from Marshalls and Sephora):

Origins A Perfect World Antioxidant Moisturizer with White Tea

I was on the lookout for a new face moisturizer since the one I was using (from Kiss My Face) was almost gone and it had been discontinued. I wanted something fairly light and natural but still something that would keep me from drying out. I've been using this new moisturizer for a couple of weeks now and so far I love it. It smells absolutely amazing, it doesn't leave a heavy or greasy feeling, and I've had no breakouts from it.

The Creme Shop Charcoal Face Mask

I picked up a pack of these at Marshalls since charcoal face masks are all the rage right now. Plus, I had tried a charcoal mask from Dr. Jart+ last year and I liked it. Well, the ones from The Creme Shop work magic on me! I've only used a couple but I've noticed a clearer and brighter face after using it.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

This product has been around for a long time now and I've always heard good things about it. But since high school I've been using MAC paint to prime my eyes because I learned the hard way about eyeshadow creasing when I first started playing around with makeup. I don't know if MAC has changed the consistency of their paint or what, but I find the paint messy and too much product always comes out of the tube. So I thought I'd give the Urban Decay primer a go. It's definitely passed the test. It works; no eyeshadow creasing for me! And it's super easy to apply and I can control how much product to use.

The next beauty products I'm on the hunt for are a good tinted moisturizer for the summer and some face wipes that I can bring on the go with me. If you have any recommendations, let me know!

  1. I love Boots No 7 face wipes! They're gentle but even take off mascara. :D

My Favourite Baby Must-Haves

Having my first child has been eye-opening. I've learnt so much and made so many mistakes. It becomes a guessing game of what your child needs at times. You want to be 'perfect' but the reality is we're all just winging it and doing the best we can. Sometimes that means spending hours on Google, texting every 'mom' friend you have, or on hold with poison control because your baby licked eczema cream off your finger when you were putting it on her cheeks (or trying to).

With Christmas around the corner, I thought I'd share the top baby items that have saved us over and over again. They would be perfect gift ideas for new parents-to-be or stocking stuffers for infants.

1. Swaddle blankets - even if your child doesn't like to be swaddled these blankets are amazing. They're extra large and made from a breathable cotton. They were perfect for the spring and summer to bring with us on walks. If there was a cool breeze, too much sun, or Emma was upset, hav…

New Mom Must-Haves

It's been just over 9 months since Emma entered this world. It's been crazy. So many ups and downs. But I wouldn't trade this experience in for anything. She's amazing. It's definitely a learning experience and I wouldn't have gotten through the last 9 months without the support I've had. My family and friends have been welcome resources to help me in this new chapter of my life.

Emma has been a great baby - she sleeps well, she eats well, she's overall content and happy. We haven't experienced many problems. But that doesn't mean every day has been easy. Some days I don't get the chance to shower between Emma, chores, and just trying to eat; other days, naps are on schedule, feedings run smooth, and I have the opportunity to not only shower, but write up a blog post or bake cookies.

Since it's the time of year when people are out buying gifts, I thought I'd share the top must-haves I've needed over the last 9 months. They would …

New Beginning

It's a new year which always feels like a new beginning to me; a fresh start. I've never been one to hold myself all that accountable for new year resolutions. I wrote down a few goals I'd like to work on this year, but honestly, the only things that matter to me this year are making memories and doing what makes me happy.

We have some fun plans this year, some set in stone and others that we need to finalize. Emma will be walking this year and she's already proved 2019 to be interesting since she's now crawling and trying to stand up. I can only imagine how many new adventures we'll encounter this year with her.

I've also found new inspiration in my creative life - artists, creators, crafts, fabric. So many things have sparked new motivation in me. I haven't felt that in a while to be honest. It's nice. It's nice to feel these things again which make me want to spend time in my craft room or sit at my laptop and write .

My first step in my newf…
