When Glossier announced they were (finally!!) shipping to Canada, I basically just handed them my credit card. Ok not true. I did A TON of research first, as -hopefully you’ve gathered – I like to be really informed about the stuff I purchase. Then when the shipping floodgates opened I couldn’t have hit order fast enough because I knew exactly what I wanted.
Happy first day of Spring! What are you up to? I have the windows open while I clean and dream about the moment I can start wearing springier clothing! (Is that a word…?) What’s on your Spring wardrobe list? Here are a few things i’m looking forward to wearing this season…
I haven’t done a beauty related blog post in ages so I felt it was time to flex the ol’ muscle and get at it again. First up: two products from OUAI. I bought the wave spray first and the only reason I did this is because while passing by Sephora, i saw a OUAI display at the door with one wave spray left; I guess my subconscious thought, Well, there’s only one – it MUST be good. (The return policy at Sephora is also pretty solid too so I knew I could return it if It didn’t work out.)
The other day I convinced my friend to let me take pictures of her. This is how it went.
This week i’m off to Colorado with D and good friends and i’m super excited! I’ve never seen The Rocky Mountains up close so that is going to be amazing as well as traveling through beautiful, rugged, landscapes, trying the food culture in Denver, and just enjoying being somewhere new (because we all need that once in a while!)
I’m also excited because I get to pack.
The last last time I flew, I packed a small bag of toiletries with me. It was heavy, bulky, took up space in my backpack and really- if i’m flying for 8 hours why do I need to bring half my bathroom vanity with my in my carry-on? I vowed never to do that again. It was such a pain.
This this time flying, I decided to try and bring only one beauty-related product with me (not including lip balm) to use inflight, one that would moisturize and perk up my tired, dull, airplane skin*: Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask.
It’s a clear gel-cream face mask/night cream that smells like delicious apricots and really moisturizes skin. About half an hour into flying I slipped to the bathroom and applied it to my face and since it’s clear, no one knew I had anything on my face! I was having a facial in secret! I had a small bottle left from Christmas and it was the perfect size to slip into the wristlet I keep in my backpack.
This little product is compact, doesn’t take up space and works wonderfully.A little goes a long way too so you have quite a bit left for a while. I will always bring this mini magic potion with me when I travel.
*I have normal/dry skin in general. If you have oily skin, this mask might be too moisturizing for you. But you never know!
