A Long Overdue MAC Splurge

10 March, 2015


I used to shop at MAC fairly regularly. Way back when I was still taking the GO Train into work, I would go right by a MAC store in Royal Bank Plaza. Invariably, as every new collection came out, I owned it the day it came out, before I even got to the office. Then I moved and despite living right next to Fairview Mall, my trips to MAC pretty much became non-existent, other than the occasional pop-in with Julie, but even those are a thing of the past!  Well this past weekend, I made it a point to make a trip to a MAC counter to pick up a few things that I’ve either had on my wishlist for a while, or needed replacing (yes Zoe, I do run out of things, lol).  I even dragged my mother along just for shits and giggles.   Continue Reading

Unboxing | Glossybox December 2014!

3 January, 2015


To be fair, the December 2014 Glossybox is not the first time I have used the Glossybox subscription service.  A few years ago when they launched, they used to have a service here in Canada and I was a member.  They ended up shutting that service within the year and I lost out.  I lost out because Glossybox was one of the way better subscription services out there.  So yeah, I was pretty happy when I found out that they would be starting up service back here in Canada once again and I very quickly signed up.   Continue Reading
