Blogmas day 19! – A cookie decorating party & A bath with santa

Hello beautiful people & happy Friday!
Last night was so much fun, it was so nice to see all my friends and decorate some delicious cookies.
I sort of dropped the ball and got too excited once people started to arrive, that I forget to take pictures, but I did manage to take some of my décor!

There were 6 of us, which was the perfect number to sit and chat and enjoy some food.
A couple of the girls stayed over, which was great because we got to go for breakfast this morning and continue catching up.

Once I got home I opened my advent calendars

Then I proceeded to clean up the mess from last night, which did not take as long as I expected.

Tonight Carmen, my sister Jen and I, are heading over to my sister Kate and her husband Wes’ house for some festive fun. I think we’re going to have some dinner and watch a Christmas movie which I will let you guys know about tomorrow.

As for the rest of the afternoon, I am going to take a nice relaxing bath with my Santa bath bomb from LUSH, and catch up on some YouTube videos.

I hope you all have a wonderful Friday night!
Until tomorrow,

Blogmas day 7! – A lazy Sunday!

Hello beautiful people!
Last night was so much fun, my mom really enjoyed her birthday dinner and the Christmas party Carmen and I went to after was a blast. Lots of games, gifts, food and good people which is my favourite kind of party.

Today has been quite a lazy day because we were up very late, so I got up and had some breakfast and then opened my calendars.

I’m so excited to try out this pale yellow polish, I have nothing like this in my collection and really love pastels for spring and summer!

I decided to have a nice relaxing afternoon, so of course I filled up the tub and threw in my melted snowman bath melt from LUSH. This little guy is part of their holiday collection and smells like gingerbread, it doesn’t make bubbles but it makes the water feel silky and you come out with the softest skin and smelling like a gingerbread man, what’s more festive than that?

Sometimes I take a book with me into the bath, but I was in the mood to watch some Gilmore girls so I took my laptop in and set it on a stool outside the tub, it’s quite an awesome set up if I do say so myself. I also never take a bath without my bath pillow which makes it more comfortable to be in there for a while!

Recently my skin has been breaking out, I don’t know if it’s just due to the change in weather or what but it’s really been bumming me out so, I decided to use my favourite detoxifying face mask to try and help remedy my situation. I’ve raved about the Origins clear improvements charcoal mask a bunch so I won’t go into too much of a ramble, this stuff just pulls impurities out of your skin helping to clear it up and leave it looking radiant and gorgeous, if you haven’t tried it I would suggest giving it a shot!

Sorry this is a short one but as I said today’s a bit of a lazy day. As soon as I’m finished with this I’ll be watching the Christmas movie of the day which is going to be The Grinch (The Jim Carrey version).

Tomorrow’s post is going to be another one with some sweet treats so don’t forget to come back and check that out! (Especially if you love peanut butter)
You guys are the best!
Until tomorrow

soap and glory!

Hey guys! Again I am so sorry I haven’t posted in so long! to be honest, I was working all summer and didn’t have the motivation or inspiration to post! BUT I recently changed jobs and now have all the motivation I need! Over the summer I had a chance to try out a BUNCH of new beauty and bath products which is something I love to do and review, so I think for the next little while my blog posts will mostly be about beauty.
Soap and Glory is a British company that produces bath & body products as well as skin care and cosmetics. here in Canada I think you can really only get the bath and body products, but in the states and UK you can get the cosmetics. I have been using one of their scrubs for about 3 years now and I absolutely love it! I find scrubs to be the best during the winter months when skin really tends to dry out and needs the most pampering.
