A New Liquid Lipstick | Cougar Beauty

Anybody remember the song Pullin' Me Back by Chingy? You know, with the lyrics "Every time I try to leave, something keeps pulling' me back telling me I need you in my life." No? Just me? Ok, well those lyrics depict my relationship with liquid lipsticks so well right now. As I'm slowly trying to get back into the world of creamy and glossy lipsticks, a new liquid lip pops up and I find myself obsessed with them all over again. The one that 'pulled me back' this time was one from Cougar Beauty.

Beauty Wishlist #4

New product launches are just popping out from every corner & my wallet just can't keep up! Seriously, I can't. It feels like every company is coming out with tons and tons of products and the beauty community is going ape sh*t! I always tell myself that I won't give into the hype & I will save my money for the next big thing, then waddya'know..there I am putting in another order at Sephora or wherever my spendful heart decides to take me.

Vacation Makeup Favourites

It's been almost 2 weeks since I came back from the Philippines. The withdrawal is real right now, folks! The weather change has been so depressing. Imagine going from wearing shorts to wearing sweatpants in less than 24 hours.. Oh how much I despise the cold. Speaking of weather change, with change in climate comes a makeup switch up. Here are the beauty bits I used pretty much everyday while on vacation:

The Foundations That Survived My Beauty Purge

I did a little Spring cleaning to my makeup collection and it resulted in a whole box of rarely used makeup. Usually when I do a little inventory check, I could barely let go of an itty-bitty-almost-finished lipstick. This time around, I felt the need to may or may not have been because I watched The Purge: Election Year last week. I did not hold back and may have ditched 25% of my makeup collection.

A Collective Beauty Haul

It's been a long, long time since my last haul. Since putting myself on a two month spending ban in the beginning of the year & being away for vacation, the last haul I shared was in January. It feels so refreshing to finally be able to do another one. Here's a bunch of products I've accumulated since the beginning of March up until now:

Life & Blog Update | Where Have I Been?

I actually can't believe the last time I put up a new post was almost 2 weeks ago. That's the longest I've ever gone without posting on my little space and I'm so sad about it, but I have a valid excuse for that. If you've kept up with my blog (or social media or read this post), then you probably know I went on a month long vacation to the Philippines. One of my goals for that month was to switch off & I did so well that I wasn't even able to keep pre-writing like I planned to. It was such a fun-filled getaway with no time for breaks and if I took the time to sit on my laptop all day to stay up to date on here, I think I would of regretted it tremendously. And that pretty much answers the "Where have I been?" question.

April Goals & March Update

I really can't believe how quick a month passed by. I know I say that every time I do these type of posts, but this time I feel like it went by twice as fast. As for reflecting back to last month's goals, it's safe to say I pretty much was successful with all of them. I tried a bunch of new things while on vacation. One of them being eating balut. If you don't know what that is, look it up on google because I might scare away a few people if I say it on here (no, it's not dog! stop thinking that!).

Travel Bucket List

While being on vacation, I came to realize just how much I like to travel and explore new places. Seeing the difference between how you live at home compared to how they live over there, trying new foods, finally seeing things you wished to see when it came up on the tv. All of those things excite and wow me. Unfortunately, I don't get to do things like that often but a girl could dream! There's just so many things out in the world to see, but so little time (and money).
