On a side note, I've decided that my project pan no longer includes a spending ban, because I'm more concerned about finishing products. That allows me to buy some of these things ;)


What's in my Everyday Makeup Bag!

So I have this giant makeup bag on my desk now that I like to keep my everyday products in. Since I've changed up my setup and now keep most of my makeup organized in a drawer, I like to keep my favorites in a bag so it's easy to access.

The bag itself is from Clinique and it was a free gift with purchase earlier last year.

Without any further ado, onto the makeup:

1.) Garnier Skin Renew BB Cream in Light/Medium (for a review, click here)

2.) Garnier Skin Renew Anti Dark Circle Roller in Light (review coming soon)

3.) L'oreal True Match Naturale Gentle Mineral Concealer in Light

4.) Bare Minerals Multi-tasking SPF 20 Concealer in Summer Bisque

5.) Bare Minerals Mineral Veil

6.) L'oreal True Match Super Blendable Concealer in Cool Fair/Light

7.) L'oreal HIP Cream Blush in Enamoured 

8.) Benefit Boxed Powder in Dandelion

9.) NARS Foreplay Cheek Palette

10.) MAC Mineralized Skin Finish in Lightscapade

11.) Smashbox Halo Highlighting Wand in Pearl

12.) Urban Decay Primer Potion

13.) Covergirl Shimmering Sands Trio (First colour is completely gone)

14.) Wet-n-Wild Colour Icon Trio in Walking on Eggshells

15.) MAC Omega Eyeshadow (for my brows)

16.) Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner in RSVP

17.) Tweezerman Browmousse Brow Gel

18.) Maybelline the Falsies mascara

19.) CO Bigelow Mentha Lip Buffer

20.) Revlon Kissable Balm Stain in Precious

21.) Butter London Lippy lip gloss in Trout Pout

So that's it! If you have any questions about these products or what I use them for then leave them down below  - I didn't include descriptions within the blog post because it would have been mighty long, considering my tendency to ramble on and on.

Obviously, I don't use every single one of these products on a daily basis. I also don't have any eyeliners in here because, quite honestly, I rarely use eyeliner.

What is your most used makeup product?


Weekend in Pictures!

I had a few interesting photos from this weekend so I thought I would share them with you!
Spaghetti with roasted cherry tomatoes and goat cheese. Best ever.
Waffles with built in syrup from a firework festival,

The view we had - the fireworks were cast over the lake,

That's my weekend in pictures! What interesting things did you do this weekend?


Miscellaneous Collective Haul!

I've been doing an embarrassing amount of hauls lately but I thought I would do one more before I stopped buying things for a while. Now again, if anyone is curious, I am still on project pan. However, I have never counted nail polish in my project pan and the two makeup products I did buy I knew I'd use. 

First I got this mint green chiffon shirt from Garage. I had seen this in the window a few times and love it - it's a button down with a sharkbite hemline (I think that's what it is called) and I think this would look great with skinny jeans or tucked into a skirt with a bandeau underneath. This was $30.

I also got three nail polishes recently (all on different trips). The first is Bikini So Teeny by Essie, which I did a nail of the day post on here.

I also got Essie's Ballet Slippers, and I talked about this in my July Favorites post here. I also am planning on doing a nail of the day post on this, which I will link here when it is up. Both polishes were $8 each.

The last polish I got was a Sally Hansen Hard as Nails polish in Pacific Blue. I know a lot of people have mentioned this and I really like it - it is like a darker version of Bikini So Teeny. This was only about $4.

From The Shoe Company, I got this pair of shoes which my sister and I will be sharing. They are Steve Madden wedges with a cream-coloured crochet T-strap and they are incredibly comfortable to walk in, despite the fact that they are pretty tall. I believe these were discounted to around $70.

Moving into some more beauty products really quickly, I also got the Soap and Glory Clean on Me Creamy Clarifying Shower Gel. I'd like to do a review on this so I won't say too much, but it is a huge bottle, smells amazing, and was $14. I'm really excited to try this.

I also happened to find the Revlon Kissable Balm Stains at my drug store so I picked one up in the colour Precious. This is a really natural colour but I loved the way it felt on my lips when I tried it on. I just might have to go back and get another brighter colour.

The last makeup product I got was the bareMinerals Multi-Tasking SPF 20 Concealer in Summer Bisque. I'm a huge fan of mineral concealers and am really enjoying this one. This was $23.

I also went to Aerie to check out new underwear and bras. Now I'm not going to show the underwear simply because I've already worn some of it but I got 7 pairs of the lace ones for around $20 ($26 and my discount because I work at American Eagle). I also got two other bras that I've also worn - one was white and the other nude, and they are both the Ella Gel bra if you're interested in googling it. 

Additionally, I picked up two bandeaus. One is a nude lace, as pictured below.

The other one I got was a white lace. These were both under $10.

The other bra that I got was a nude bra with this gorgeous black lace overlay. I've never had a bra as pretty as this and I love it. For those wondering, this is the Brooke style (and I wear a 34A. Wooo).

My friend also went to New York and she brought me back this bag, which also included a little phone case. I love this and have already used it!

My mom also got me a few things from Seattle. 

She got me the Someday by Justin Bieber rollerball partly as a joke and partly because she knows I'd use it - this is one of my all time favorite perfumes. I don't like Justin Bieber much, but this perfume is amazing.

The other thing that she got me from Seattle was the NARS Foreplay cheek palette. I don't want to say too much about this because I have a review coming up soon, but though I didn't ask for this or anything I am in love. I can't wait to travel because this will be the only cheek product I bring.

The last last thing I have to show is something I got from Dailylook - I've looked at the website lots of times but never purchased anything until now.

I saw this skirt maybe a couple of weeks ago and found it gorgeous, and so I bought it. I can imagine this with a flowy chiffon shirt like I showed from Garage tucked into it and with some simple black flats or heels. It is on the fancier side so I probably won't wear it a heck of a lot, but I will get some use out of it. This is from the brand "English Rose" and it was around $30.

That concludes this incredibly long collective haul! Sorry for all the haul posts - I promise I'll have some good material coming up soon :)
