july favourites

I suppose this counts as a monthly favourites post right? Even though it’s a bit late… Everything is from Essence Cosmetics, mainly because I’m trying to be more conscious of what products I’m buying, and being a little nicer to my wallet.  All of the Essence cosmetics are ridiculously inexpensive. That meaning most, if not all, of the products are under $5.

i ❤ smokey jumbo eye pencil

I love pencil eyeliner that applies as easy as this. There’s no going over your waterline 70 times before it even looks like you applied anything. It’s my new go -to for everyday.

i ❤ extreme crazy volume mascara

Might have beaten the benefit mascara that was my favourite before. This seriously gives you full lashes without clumps.

lipstick in #12 sparkling miracle

(oops we’re upside down)

This isn’t the best lipstick I’ve ever tried, but it’s not too shabby. The main reason I purchased this was to give the colour a go, I’m pleased with it.

kiss care love lipbalm in #03 fruitylicious

Slightly scented and reminds me of baby lips lip balm, except cheaper!

stay with me longlasting lipgloss in #11 choose me!

XXXL shine lipgloss in #22 nude kiss

XXXL shine lipgloss in #18 sparkling papaya

Obviously I didn’t have enough lip gloss. I’m not a big fan of sparkles on my lips but these aren’t too sparkly therefore I deem them worthy. Haha.

Hope you enjoyed my little post, feel free to comment! p.s. excuse the pictures I tried to make use of my phone but I’ll stay away from that in the future.



Bright-eyed & Busy-tailed? Nope.

As it’s Spring, sort of, you would expect that everyone would feel revitalized and energetic as it starts getting warmer, right? Wrong.

That doesn’t seem to be the case, at least not for me. I have no idea what has caused my exhaustion, but for the last week naps have been my BFF <3. I get absolutely nothing done after getting home from work, when all I want to do is sleep. My to-do list is HUGE because I’ve been pushing everything to the next day. This being tired thing also makes me insanely irritable, I don’t know how people can stand to be around when I’m “in a mood” <–that’s what my mother calls it. -.-

To make things even stranger I feel as if I’m starving all the time. Literally the stomach is never full, bottomless pit up in here. Again I have no idea why, I just have to eat like everything. It’s truly a miracle that I don’t weigh 500 pounds already.

Actually I kind of feel like a bear coming out of hibernation…the hunger part, not the napping part. Does anybody else feel like a sleepy, grumpy, hungry bear right now?…or is it just me?

OK mini-rant about my poor health is over. I thought I would get apost up before I go to class today, as I don’t think I’ll get the chance to post this weekend! I really want to get a March Favourites post up by Monday so keep your eyes peeled! I found a lot of great stuff in March!
