I will truly be unplugged so I won’t be updating the blog or posting social media for the duration of my trip. But I’ll be sure to share my experiences and photos once I’m back at the end of the month.
I saw this on Chanelle’s blog and I thought it was such a great idea that I decided to give it a whirl! This is quite a departure for me since it’s mostly non-beauty related discussion… here’s a glimpse into my everyday life. 🙂
Mon Aug 1 – Civic Holiday so a day off from work! I met with my friend from Newfoundland for lunch.
Wed Aug 3 – I had 5 meetings that spanned 7 hours, leaving me with 1 hour to do actual work – but the Happiness Highlight is that I got to eat my sushi lunch during a conference call.
Thurs Aug 4 – I got to pet 2 puppies in 2 separate puppy encounters. One was a French Bulldog, and the other was a poodle type and both tried to play with me by nipping at my hand with their sharp little teeth! 😛
Fri Aug 5 – went to MAC over lunch with coworker and she treated me to some eye shadows!
Sat Aug 6 – watched the new Jason Bourne movie, which was enjoyable (although the first one is still the best).
After a week of negative reviews, I thought for today I’d post something positive! 😉
I was nominated for the Miranda Sings Award by the lovely Kristy of HippyLip – if you’re not following her, you really should! Thanks for the nod. 🙂
• Announce your nomination with a post, including a link to the blogger who nominated you
• Include the featured image on your blog
• List seven things you love about yourself (e.g. your appearance, personality, achievements, etc.), but don’t use negative comparisons!
• Nominate ten other blogs and link the nominees in your post
Something different today instead of a review – I haven’t done a Tag in ages. I saw this on The Makeup Case and had to do my own spin on it. 😉
What is your middle name?
Hoarder. Stash Hoarder Matters is my name, don’t wear it out! 😛
What was your favorite subject in school?
In high school I really loved Industrial Arts or erm it used to be called “Shop” class. I made a wooden bowl on the lathe, and a wooden piggy bank. It was an awesome class!
What is your favorite drink? Source.
I’ve answered this before elsewhere so I’ll name another one I like: Jack fruit shake. I get this from our local Vietnamese restaurant and it is so refreshing. It tastes kind of like Neapolitan ice cream but lighter.
What is your favorite song at the moment?
I’ve had “Follow You Follow Me” in my head for a few weeks ever since I saw the animated short “Lily & the Snowman” from Cineplex!
It’s my blog’s first birthday today! I’m the proud mama of a one year old. 😛
I thought it’d be fun to do a highlights of the year in review: [I started compiling this list before I saw that WordPress released a 2015 year in review report for each blog – how neat! See below for a link to mine]
My most popular posts (based on view counts) are:
Transitional Eye Shadow Shades
I would have never in a million years guessed how popular that post would be! The majority of the views of this post is from google search hits. I find it interesting that my top posts aren’t necessary the ones that have the most comments – it seems that random people are stumbling on my blog from search results.
I was tagged by Joy of StyledWithJoy to do this one and since Fall is quickly slipping away from us, I figured I’d hurry up and answer this, pronto! Thanks Joy for tagging me on this one, I can always count on you! 🙂
Rules: 1. Include the blog links of the tag creators (Lilian and Denise). 2. Thank the last person who tagged you and link their blogs in your post. 3. Be thoughtful and creative when you answer these questions. 4. After answering the questions, pass the tag onto at least five more bloggers to spread the autumn joy!
1. What is your go-to fall color?
Grey. I just LOVE all shades of grey. I will wear head to toe grey – charcoal pants with a dove coloured top! I don’t have grey shoes – what’s up with that.
Here’s a Tag that I saw on Katie of Plus Beauty‘s blog ages ago! (I miss Katie, anyone else? I saw on IG that her move went well – I’m so happy for her!)
20 Beauty Questions Tag:
1. Do you remember your first makeup item?
It was a frosty pink sticky lip gloss from Avon. It was terrible but so awesome at the same time! I wasn’t allowed to wear a stitch of makeup until I was in high school (around 14) and even then, it was only lip gloss.
Sunny side up lipgloss from Avon (Source) This isn’t what I had but isn’t this awesome? I’d totally buy that.
