It was nice to have a slightly slower pace on the blog this past week! I’ll be continuing with 2 or 3 posts a week until the end of November.
Here are the posts that when up last week, in case you were too preoccupied with watching the Super Moon:
Project Pan: MAC Powder Blush in Cubic
Using this blush daily has really made me appreciate it again! After Project Pan is over, I’ll likely not touch this blush for another 6 months though, since I’ll be so tired of it! 😉
Sephora VIB Sale Fall 2016 Haul
So many Pretties!
• I went into the COS store for the first time – the stuff if so pricey for what they are! In case you’re not familiar with COS, it’s a clothing store owned by H&M. It’s higher-end and has a very minimalist Scandinavian / Japanese aesthetic. I did eye this glass bobble necklace:
The bobbles are made of hollow glass like Christmas ornaments and feels so weightless and floaty. Even though it costs C$70… I can’t stop thinking about it. I might get it – what do you think?
• Went out for dinner on Thursday with some girlfriends I haven’t seen in a few months. It was really good to see them! We chatted about so many things (the election, jobs, relationships, clothes, and MAKEUP) and I drank a bit more than I should on a weeknight. 😉 My voice was a bit hoarse the next day.
We also had amazing food at a still fairly new restaurant in town called Piano Piano. It’s the second time I’ve been there but their first – I would describe the food as unpretentious comforting Italian fare: we ate pizza and pasta.
• My SO and I went to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and it was fairly entertaining. It’s darker than Harry Potter films (especially the earlier ones) and I felt there were some pacing issues, but the movie sets up the new world and characters well for future films. One gripe I have though: Eddie Redmayne annoys the heck out of me! He’s a mumbler and I find him creepy, not endearing. 😛 Also, the term “No-Maj” was the best they could come up with as the American word for “Muggle”?!! Really! What about “Naybler” or “Boolee”. I just made those up in less than 15 seconds and they [subjectively] suck less than “No-Maj”! Overall, I give this film 7/10
• I finally got my flu shot for this year – I’ve been getting a flu shot every year since I was in high school. It’s not a miracle cure but I typically do not get full-blown knocked-on-my-ass sick during the flu season. I find it funny that it is always the people who say they “don’t believe in it” and never get the flu shot, who are sick as a dog every flu season, without fail.
How was last week for you?
