Collective Haul // October 2016

So, it's been a hot minute since I've done a haul on here. I think the last big makeup purchase I made was the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette (which was back in May!), but my last actual haul that I did was in April. Must say, I'm pretty proud of myself for managing to stick to a spending ban - no matter how loose it was! I actually haven't been all that tempted by makeup recently actually. It's not that I've become disinterested in makeup, because trust me, I still love it! I just think I've become numb to all the HYPE! and NEWNESS!, and I also think that I've become quite content with my makeup collection. I only really consider purchasing something if I really love it, it's gotten good reviews or is somewhat unique in my collection. That being said, let's dive in!


Like Music to My Ears #6

New albums seem to come in waves don't they? There have been a bunch of new releases from a few of my favourite artists that I've been listening to over the past month or so, so I thought it was definitely time for a music update!


The Daily Makeup Edit

It's been a loooong, long time since I've done any sort of "daily makeup" routine post on the blog, and seeing as I've stuck to a pretty solid routine for the past several months, I figured I should update you guys! This post will also serve somewhat as a September favourites as I haven't really been using or loving anything new, just the same old shiz! I think that will change in the coming months though as I've broken my spending ban (a pretty lax one at that) and made a Colourpop order, and I anticipate I will be buying a bunch more with the impending holiday releases! I'm pretty proud of myself though, I pretty much hadn't bought anything since the Sweet Peach Palette which was all the way back in May! Anyway, if any of y'all are OG readers, some of these products might take you waaay back into the archives! I should say, I don't necessarily wear this makeup everyday but this look is typically my go-to for work (without the eye products) or long days at uni!


Dripping in Gold

I was meant to post this yesterday for "Smelly Sunday" (what a throwback series! If you know remotely what I'm on about - you da real OG) but time got away from me so...here we are on Musky Monday? (no.) Anyway, I haven't done a fragrance dedicated post in aaaages just because I'm pretty terrible at describing scents, I don't really switch up my perfumes much and if I'm loving one, I typically mention it in a favourites post. I figured I would throw together a post for this particular perfume though, because it's pretty great and it photographs so well! You've probably seen it all over Instagram for that reason :P It's Calvin Klein's newest limited edition unisex fragrance, ck one gold*.


Five Spring Nail Polishes

Seeing as spring is basically in full swing, I thought I'd better start getting in the mood for it! When it comes to spring, the very first thing that pops into my head is pastel nail polish! I haven't done a nail related post in a HOT minute, but I've still been wearing nail polish constantly (just not changing it every four days like I used to...wow I've gotten lazy!) and the pastel shades have been a go to (even in the dead of winter :P )! I've also thrown in a couple of brighter shades just so it wasn't all pastel! Let's go!
