Question Tuesday – Holiday Wisdom 2016

 

question-tuesday

Hey guys!¬†When I started the Question Tuesday topic a year ago, I had no idea what the response might be. I’m so grateful to so many of you who make this Question Tuesday¬†more fun with¬†all the comments I received. A huge thanks to everyone!

As year 2016 is coming to a close, I thought it would be fun to just enjoyed the coming special holiday seasons!

So, here are a few questions I got for you:

Q1: Are you pro/con on store bought bows on presents? Prefer the hand tied ones? I’m going to say pro. I always believe on the finishing touch so IMO¬†bows are like icing on the cake.

Q2: What is the latest you‚Äôve ever hit the stores to get that one last gift?¬†I haven’t experienced it yet since I usually finished all my holiday shopping the week of Black Friday.

Q3: Favorite store to shop in? I would say Sephora online and Winners

Q4: If stores offered (or offer) wrapping at a $1 a package, would that be something you’d pay for? $2?, $3, where’s the line?¬† Or do you all enjoy wrapping? Well, I love present wrapping so I’ll save a couple of bucks doing it by myself.

Q5: What would be a¬†piece of wisdom you learned over this year of 2016 to share here? ¬†Keep going until you see the light at the end of the tunnel …Wisdom comes from living.

Hope you’ve enjoyed reading this post and please share how you celebrate this coming festive season.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you’ve a lovely week. [muah]

Under $15 Drugstore Holiday Gift Sets

 

Hey guys! Today we’re talking about the Under $15 Drugstore Holiday Gift Sets. I’ve very excited to share with you this post since I got them from Walmart.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ve been picking and collecting a lot of holiday gift items as the week gets closer to Christmas. There are so many exciting and new gift sets rolling out to¬†the¬†drugstores.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

For a starter let’s get into¬†Elf Cosmetics¬†which came out with this four piece “Mad for Matte” lip¬†color set for the holiday. I really like the whole product format in this.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The colors are top notch and you guys knows I love a good matte lip products and these is just right up my alley. The packaging comes in a slim stick design and also you got a lot of control when applying it. At the end of the stick there’s a pops off sharpener in case you want the tip to be finely pointed. I think this is brilliant! Comment below what you think?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here are the four matte lipsticks that I’ve been loving lately. The colors are so pretty and truly matte finishing. The color intensity is fully there and for the price of CAD$15.00 (US$10.00) for all four, I think that’s awesome value!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I telling you that all these four shades are a winner in my book. You’ll get Pralline which is a beautiful neutral shade. I really love this color a lot for everyday wear. This color is fantastic on its own and you could also mixed it with nude for a natural nude lips.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Moving on is this Rich Red which is a true bright red. Gorgeous for this holiday season. I’m a huge fan of red lip color and this shade just knock me off¬†my feet. I love love this red. It’s very glam and if you’re trying out a new shade this

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Next, I got Berry Sorbet which is a pink berry with¬†some brightness to it. On the days that I’m feeling my best, this shade is something I would wear for an evening out. Such a pretty color that’s long lasting and looks great on lips.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Last but not least is the shade Wine which is a nice holiday color of reddish berry. A little dark berry for fall and winter season. They wear comfortably on lips and they glide like a dream. No tugging or any feeling of dryness on my lips whatsoever.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

From L-R: Pralline, Rich Red,Berry Sorbet and Wine. I’ll do¬†a lip swatch over at my Instagram if you’re curious.¬†

I also want to show you the color swatch I did on all four shades. They’re awesome matte lip color for less than a fraction of what you would pay for Bite Lipsticks. I highly recommend it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The next set that I’m very excited to show you guys is their Get Glowing Highlighting Set. This is the best drugstore set that’s cruelty free and for CAD$15.00 (US$10.00) you couldn’t ask for more, I’m telling you.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here’s the actual products in this set. There’s a brush, a shimmering facial whip and a illuminating palette.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

There a good mixture of highlighter, a cooler pinky tone on the top right, the bottom of beige which is very subtle and the golden-y peach.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

You get highlighting brush. The bristle is a little longer and you could use it for setting the under-eye or for the highlight. It’s very soft and I’ve been enjoying using it to blend the highlighter.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The glow is very subtle and I really like what it looks on swatch. Really enjoy the consistency of the formula and it’s a great highlighting palette if you’re trying out new products.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

One of them is this Shimmery Facial Whip. I tell you this is the best I’ve tried yet. This shade is called Lilac petal but it doesn’t look lilac at all. It’s a soft peachy pink.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Just a tiny itsy bitsy size is enough to brighten your skin. A little goes a long way! It’s highly highly shimmery.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Just take a second and look at this swatch. Are you convince how little you need of this product to get this huge effect. Here is the result! As you can see, I blend it a little and then more as shown on the image below.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I wear it on my cheek as highlighter, tip of my nose and on my cupid bow. Love this to the moon and back. One word = Awesome.

These are products I’ve tried that really impressed. It excites me to give it to those in my list.

Is Time Off a Part of Your Blogging Plan?

 

OMG you guys! I’m writing this post while sitting on a black leather¬†over-sized chair, listening to radio in my hotel room, and will¬†soon be heading out to¬†the beach after finishing this post. The¬†view is simply amazing, there is a gorgeous lake not far away from where we stay.

Frankly, I’m pretty stressed out about taking a two weeks off before school starts.

Yes, I know … I should be stressed right now.¬†But I‚Äôm actually feeling okay about it ‚Äď things will work out, and I’m doing some of the most important work I’ll do all year. I‚Äôm taking some time off.

Running my own blog as a business or as a hobby requires intense amount of energy, forethought and foresight. It’s way too easy to wake-up to the laptop, instead of with a cup of¬†espresso coffee in the morning. Anyone else could relate?

I’ll be taking my weeks off from blogging but I’m not going to¬†sweat about it, I’ve already¬†scheduled a couple of Monday posts while I’m¬†gone and actually utilize my¬†trip for blog ideas! I will still¬†share ¬†pictures on Snapchat and¬†Instagram. And¬†if you haven’t subscribed to my blog or social media already, you might want to do so now.

Reason for taking a time off:

In fact, letting our minds off the hook, to wander, to experience, is actual a key ingredient of the creative process. If you are waiting for the next ‚Äúa-ha‚ÄĚ moment, whether it‚Äôs a new article idea, blog tagline or potential partner, your best bet is to chill for a bit and take your well deserve vacation.

If you’re¬†furiously trying to force out a new big idea, take it from me, and take a break. The world won‚Äôt end, I know my friends would understand.

How do you take time away from your blog? Have you ever taken a blog vacation? What worked (or what didn’t)? Tell me about it in the comment below. I love to hear what you think.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope I’ll see you guys again very soon. Bye!
