A smash hit !

I have found the greatest addition to my make up collection. It is the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer. The best invention in make up ever, trust me! I have very strange skin, it is dry when applying make up and then becomes quite oily at the end of the day. My forehead gets as glossy as my lips, not in a good way.

This incredible primer from Smashbox leaves your face looking deliciously matte all day long. I apply it after I put my moisturizer on, and then I put my make up on.

Smashbox has different types of Primers to suite your skin, and it is quite pricey I might add! I would recommend asking the store for a sample and try it out before purchasing the whole bottle.

Love it!

Hold on to your handbag!

My favorite accessory is my handbag, but did you know that your handbag makes you sick?

All these nasty bugs get stuck on your bag when you put it down on the ground, when you are on the bus, and by you yourself....yuck! So, ladies, don't put your handbag down.

What to do?
-Change handbag more often
-Wash and clean your handbag if possible
-Wash your hands

Is this the cause of my flu?

Beckhams + Armani = True

Nobody could have missed out on David Beckhams underwear ad for Armani, could you? Now his other gorgeous half has done the same. Victoria Beckham was asked to show off the latest Armani underwear collection. I must say, she looks amazing after three kids, but its not all effortless. She said in an interview that she ran nine miles everyday for six months for this shoot.

Does this motivate you to get in shape for the bikini season?

Yummy Oatmeal

In the summertime I am a big Starbucks fan.... I love getting a frappuccino and walk in the sun with my shades on and check out the window display along Queen Street. In the wintertime I hardly even set as much as a foot in there...

But now I might have to break that habit and step in and get a hot cup of something and receive a complimentary Starbucks Perfect Oatmeal. This offer is available for Starbucks Card Rewards members and today is the last day. I haven't tried the oatmeal at Starbucks yet, but it looks quite yummy...

Shopping through Recession

Money and spending is always tough...

I do, like a lot of you other out there, fancy and adore the nicer things in life. But I often do not pay full price for the things that I long for. I am always going through the FOR SALE racks and keeping an eye out for great bargains.

I wasn't able to make use of the boxing day sales after the holidays, but many stores are still trying to get rid of last season stuff. This was very beneficial for me during the weekend, as I have a bunch of birthdays to attend. I made great bargains at Bath & Body Works for my two girlfriends, and then I found a great Tickle me Cookie Monster at the toy store reduced by 30 percent. And last weekend I found awesome easy entertaining video games at Walmart, for just $10 each.

At Garage Clothing I found for myself a great casual top, that I can dress up. A clothing line to check out, especially when its on sale is Joe Fresh, it is regularly priced low, and has a great classic style.

I love cookies!

Blank Canvas

My devotion to this blog is at zero. My since of drive and motivation has been incredibly low lately. Maybe this is something I should blog about, as we all know people go through boring, rough, depressing moments and phases in their lives...

Anyways, sometimes I dream things that end up happening in real life. Usually these dreams are about someone having a baby...last night I had a dream that I won a million dollars, yay...

Does this mean I should go and play everything that Lottario has to offer out there?

If I had a million dollars, I would....

Bitten all over...

I am so tired today. This longweekend we spent by going camping with my husbands almost entire clan. We were 17 people invading the camping site on Saturday, at Emily Park, and on Sunday we went further east to visit Marmora, our last desintation before heading back to Toronto. Yes, I can get down and dirty, I am not all about the

After getting home we unpacked the car, we also washed and cleaned it, which I have begged my hubby to do for the longest time, yay! Now I got a pile of clothes smelling like burnt firewood that needs to be taken care of. Considering we only went for one night, there is a lot of stuff to clean afterwards...

Things to note for next camping excursion:
* Bring a pillow
* More clothes
* A better flashlight
* Bug spray
