My Current Holy Grail Beauty Products

Happy New Year! ❤

This post idea came up last year when I posted my yearly favourite discoveries.  I did discover some gems in 2017 but I thought it would be more useful for me to list out all my Holy Grail (HG) items instead.

I’m going to force myself to just name ONE item for each category.  I feel like embarking on this project is like choosing a favourite child. I love you all equally! ❤ Continue reading

June and July 2017 No-Buy-Low-Buy Accountability

I hadn’t planned on being MIA last week but it was my final week at my old job and it was so busy!  I ended up having a lot of social engagements last week (goodbyes) – being out every night makes it difficult to blog!  Things likely won’t settle down until after Labour Day weekend…

I haven’t gone back to the Charlotte Tilbury counter since my last birthday, so I suppose it’s an annual tradition?

Belated birthday presents

I thought I’d post these belated birthday presents since they’re all beauty related!  Since I was away for my actual birthday in July, I received some of my presents later (not the givers’ fault!)  Here’s what I received (or purchased with the gift card that I received):
