Another week has flown by. I can't believe it's the end of May! This past week, I have been hurrying to get everything finished to graduate as well as take time to celebrate with friends.

Product Empties!

Today, I thought I would share some of the products I have used down to the last drop over the past few months. I have been through a wide-range of products and some I have repurchased while others I have decided to try something new!

All the way from the UK.....Sleek Make-up Haul

Some of my favourite beauty bloggers and vloggers are from the UK. Every time I read or watch a 'high-street' haul, I longingly wish to have access to these exclusive products. Luckily, there are several ways to order these drugstore deals (though, I wish I could take a trip to London and have a Boot's shopping spree!) Two of the main things I wanted to try were the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum foundation and Sleek's colour cosmetics. This post is going to focus on the products I ordered from the Sleek website.

I can't believe another week has gone by! I'm disappointed that I haven't posted anything this week either! Like I suspected Spring never really happened & my mind is focused on summer.

Happy Mother's Day! I'm on the last stretch for finishing my master's. I have been having long days finishing up work at my externship and the final documentation for my thesis, while my evenings have been talks with friends about how fast the time goes. And for the weather: rainy & spring-y?

Birchbox | May 2013

 I also received my May Birchbox today! Like I said, good mail day. And overall a good month for subscription boxes! This month's....theme...was beauty diaries. I really love the assortment of samples I received this month. Definitely all products I can't wait to use.

Ipsy | May 2013

Today was an awesome mail day for me! My Birchbox, Ipsy, & Sam & Libby for Target order arrived! I thought I would spend the afternoon sharing my haul with you, starting with my Glam Bag from Ipsy. This is my second month with Ipsy and again I am blown away by the sizes and range of products they send out each month. This month's theme was Spring Fling. And ever since I saw the first spoiler, a full-size Zoya, I couldn't wait for this bag to make it to my doorstep.

Julep Maven | May 2013

Today I thought I would share this month's Julep Maven's box. The theme is "Set the Stage." It's very "Great Gatsby" -esque. Not what I was expecting for May, but I love this collection! I decided to go with the Modern Beauty box. This is the newest style-profile featuring only products. I couldn't go without nail polish though, so I added a couple of this month's new shades.


Sunday, May 5, 2013


This week I achieved a great professional & academic achievement of mine. I completed my Master's thesis! I can't believe that two years of work is finished, and I will be graduating at the end of the month. Other than that, life is continuing as normal. :]

April Favourites | Beauty & Random

Happy May! I can't believe it's already here. It still feels like October 2012 to me.... Anyway April was a crazy, hectic month for me. I worked on my thesis non-stop, went to Portland with Preston, and managed all the other usually daily tasks. Through it all, I managed to find many new & old favourites for the month of April.

Urban Decay Naked Basics

I finally jumped on the band wagon and purchased Urban Decay's Naked Basics palette. I use matte eyeshadows everyday but usually only for blending in the crease or for setting eyeliner, so I was debating purchasing this palette. However, it's compact size and perfect shades for a complete eye look won me over in the end. And now I just might be a matte shadow convert.
