January Nail Polish Colours

I'm getting better at making sure to paint my nails on the weekends. These were January's colours.


Deborah Lippmann's Luftballons mini - fuchsia multi-coloured glitter - I wore this out for New Year's. It takes a lot of work to get the glitter just right.


My Beauty Spot in Purple? - purple metallic - It's actually a really pretty colour and I love purple. Sold! I wore it on my toes.


OPI in I Vant To Be A-Lone Star - pale blue creme with shimmer - I enjoy this colour a lot and wear it more in the spring. Maybe I was being hopeful.


Sinful Colours You Just Wait - pink shimmer - this is my "my nails but better" colour


OPI Russian Navy - navy blue shimmer - we got pedicures done this month and this was the colour that H picked.

February Favourites

I had no stand out favourites this month. It was such a busy month that I don't think I even wore much make up.

January Favourites

January has been a lazy month because I've been sick. These products have been getting me through.


Klorane Dry Shampoo - I've been so sick that standing in the shower is actually hard. This has been a life saver.

Burt's Bees Lip Balm - This is in one of my projects and winter has been taking a toll on my lips so this has been handy.

FAB Ultra Repair Cream - My poor nose has been hurting badly. This stuff helps my dry skin wonderfully. I think this is completely holy grail now.

Davids Tea Secret Weapon - this helped me get through my cold. Sadly it's a white tea, so it is caffeinated, so it was a day-time tea only.

January Empties

This is a big empties post! I finished a lot of things this month because I'm trying very hard to get through my stash. We're moving this year, so we're purging as much as we can and trying not to buy things.


Belvada Cosmetics Essential Day Cream deluxe sample - this just put gold all over my face. It didn't soak in at all. Throwing it out.

Blum Naturals All-Purpose Cleansing Wipes - I was saving these for camping, but they dried out. Garbage.

Nourish Organic Face Cleanser - I liked this, but I can't buy it locally, so I won't be, but if I received this brand in a subscription box, I wouldn't be sad.

Neostrata Toning Solution Level 2 - this did nothing for me but dry my skin out. I did give it a good try. 

LashEm Picture Perfect Instant Wrinkle Reducer - this just pilled under my makeup. Garbage.

Derma E Microdermabrasion Scrub - I really liked this and if it is cheaper than Dr. Brandt, I'll be buying some after the move.


up & up Exfoliating Cotton Rounds - this makes me sad. My last pack. Target is closing, so I probably won't have any more. 

Biore Nose Strip and Face Strip - old classics. I got these in the mail. I forgot how much I liked these.

Kirkland Facial Wipes - the usual.


Philosophy Hope in a Jar - little foil package that lasted a couple of days. I'd be interested in trying a travel size after I'm done my Clinique day cream.

Balea Pore Minimizing Face Mask - this was okay. I wouldn't buy it again,

Murad Intensive Age-Diffusing Serum - sample was too small to really judge about it.


Vitabath Body Wash in Wild Red Cherry - I liked the smell and it didn't linger. They sell it at Shopper's so once I run out of shower gel, I may buy some.

Euphoria by Calvin Klein - I loved this and it's on my wish list.

Thymes Essentials Body Scrub - I really liked this but I bought it randomly at Chapter's and I don't think they carry it anymore.  I'll just have to go back to Ocean Salt once I get through my scrubs.

Loofah gloves - They've been around awhile and it's time to throw them out. I like gloves more than mitts.

Lush's So White body wash sample - I really liked this but, of course, it's a Christmas one. Maybe next year.

The Body Shop's Vitamin E Hand and Nail Treatment - I've had this forever so I just used it up as a body lotion.


Redken Body Full Shampoo and Conditioner - Look! I finished both in the same month. That never happens. 

GUM Toothpaste - little travel size I kept in my purse. It's toothpaste.

Oral-B Glide Pro-health Floss - one use sample from the dentist. Couldn't really make an opinion.

Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo - I've tried this before and it's not my favourite.


I finished up my Tea Advent Calendar.


Swampwater - A surprisingly good tea. I don't think I'd go out and buy it though.

Cocoberry - It wasn't my favourite.


Avon's Blue Lavender Bouquet - I wish they still had this. I would burn this every night before bed. I really liked it. I hope it comes back.
