2018 Favourites

I am a tiny bit delayed in this post, but I wanted to share with all of you some of my favourites from 2018!

Skincare:
Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb has worked wonders on my super dry skin. This is a quick absorbing, long lasting moisturizer that adds so much relief to my skin. This product can be used day and night, but I only use it in the morning. 


Makeup:
Pixi H2O Skin Tint Tinted Face Gel is more like a tinted moisturizer and a great substitute for foundation! I'm not a fan of foundation, as I feel it's too heavy on my skin. This product is light coverage, does a great job evening out your skin tone, and making skin look flawless. 

Clothing:
Old Navy Boyfriend Straight Jean are the most comfortable jeans I have ever worn! On top of that, these jeans are the perfect length for me; I'm only 5'2" and they hit right above my ankle, no tailoring needed.

Shoes:


Deflex Comfort Shoes from Payless are my go to shoe. They come in a variety of styles, but they all have a foam sole which is super comfortable. They also are elastic so they form to your foot, with no slipping and no blisters! I wear these shoes for 12+ hours with no issues.

Scent:
Lemongrass is a scent that I have been drawn to throughout 2018. I really like the citrus scent, it's very fresh and energizing. There are a ton of benefits to this essential oil, but I really just like the smell. 

Accomplishment:
So, I don't have an image to go along with this 'Favourite', but in 2018 I had 98 events that I worked on! This is by far the most events I have ever worked on in a single year. In 2017, I worked on 60-something events, which at the point had been the most. I am so proud on the number and quality of events that I did. On top of the 98 events, In 2018 I had started working on 20-25 events for 2019.

Memory:

Ever since I can remember, I have always wanted to visit Prince Edward Island. I had the opportunity to go to PEI in 2018 and I had an amazing time! This was the first time I traveled and explored a place by myself, and PEI was a great place to visit! You can see pictures from my trip here, here, here, and here.

Singles Swag January Review

Singles Swag is a monthly lifestyle subscription boxed aimed at single women to empower and inspire them. While the target audience is single women, Singles Swag can appeal to a wide variety of women, despite their relationship status. Who doesn't love getting a box full of great items?

Singles Swag offers two boxes: 
  • Singles Swag Petite which is 3-4 full size products for $24.99 (USD) a month
  • Singles Swag which is 6-7 full size products for $39.00 (USD) a month
I have known about this subscription for about a year, but the January box is the first box that I received. 


  • Zoe Ayla Classy Rose Gold Eyelash Curler I always enjoy getting beauty tools in subscription boxes, as they are items I use but rarely buy for myself.
    Retail Value $40.00
  • Nico New York Silver Bar Necklace This is a very simple and classic necklace. I am not a big jewelry wearer- I ware the same pieces every day- but I am sure I will find someone to gift this to.
    Retail Value $64.00
  • Purlisse 6-pc Blue Lotus + White Tea Sheet Mask Set I am huge Purlisse fan and have tried this mask before. I love that we got a full box instead of just one or two masks.
    Retail Value $38.00
  • Spongelle Pedi Buffer Spongelle is popular with subscription boxes and I'm not mad about it. Spongelle is basically a sponge that is infused with cleanser that you can reuse (usually up to 14 times). This is a little different because it is a buffer for your feet, but it's the same concept. Looking forward to trying this out!
    Retail Value $16
  • Headbands of Hope Black Confetti Beanie This is a fun and appropriate product for a January box. I don't wear hats, but I know I will be able to gift this to someone. I love that for every product sold, Headbands for Hope donates a handband to a child with cancer.
    Retail Value $32
  • Pure Comsetics Pure Illumination Light Up Gloss This is hands down my favourite product in this box! Not only is there a mirror on the side of the package (brilliant!) but there is also an LED light built into the wand (extra brilliant)! I am fan of Pure Cosmetics, and this lip gloss doesn't disappoint. Note: Some people received a Real Her lip stick instead of this gloss. I am not a fan of Real Her, so I was excited that I got the gloss!
    Retail Value $22.00
  • Socada Milk Chocolate Bar This is Italian milk chocolate, which I didn't realize was a thing.
    Retail Value $5.00
  • Total value $217.00
I am pretty happy with my first Singles Swag Box! With the exception of the necklace and hat- both great, just not for me- I love everything in the box! The value is worth what I paid, and I am interested to see what next month's box will hold!

Hey, It's Ok

With Amber from Airing My Dirty Laundry

To not be excited about Celebrity Big Brother. I love Big Brother, but I couldn't get into last season's Celebrity Big Brother. I likely won't even bother watching.

That I am looking forward to my friend's birthday on Friday! She always puts on a great dinner and party. This year is a trailer park themed murder mystery! 

To be, finally and slowly, organizing my condo. I redid my work area, and reorganized my front hall and bathroom. Still a ton of things to organize, but I am working on it. 

That I do not understand the hype around Chris Pratt marrying Katherine Schwarzenegger. 

To kinda want to watch You on Netflix. I am hearing so much about this show and how good it is. My hesitation? I read the book and was creeped out by it. I'm not sure I am brave enough to watch the show.
