Christmas 2017 Gift Guide: Stocking Stuffers

Yes, the time is among us. And honestly, I'm later than some at getting my gift guides started but consider this the beginning of quite a few holiday posts to come. There never seems to be a shortage of posts and inspiration come November and December. Anyone disagree? Such an exciting time of the year! Today, I'm delving into my first gift guide on stocking stuffer ideas. None of the specific items I put on this list is over $15 CA. Hope this gives you some ideas and you can certainly leave more ideas in the comments!

Vichy Aqualia Thermal Range and Liftactiv Skin Corrector

I was given the chance to try out these skincare items from Vichy by GlamSense. Y'all have heard me talk about my dry skin numerous times, so I was all for trying this line that promised hydration and brightening. Actually, it promises "dynamic hydration". Those are some big words to live up to! So did they live up to them? Let's find out what I think!

Old Navy Fall 2017 Haul

This is a collective haul, by the way. Three different hauls, to be exact. I took advantage of 30% or 40% off (can't remember which percentage) on the first, used the Super Cash from that order on the second, and used the Friends and Family discount on the third (which came with more Super Cash - tempting!). Regardless, I stocked up and scored some great deals and now I want to share what I bought and if I think they are worth a buy or not.

I obviously had comfort or warmth on my mind for quite a few of the things that I purchased! Some of the things may also no longer be on the website(s), but I saw many of these in store just last weekend. And one is not an exact match as to what I found in store, but very similar which I'll mention below. I called this a "fall haul" because these are out right now, but these items will definitely take me through winter!

Blog of the Month: November 2017

In October, Elle from Elle Sees was my featured blogger. You can read that post and see other past featured blogs under the "blog of the month" label! Being my blog of the month gets you a designated blog post, a sidebar button, and a mention on my Twitter account. The sidebar button stays up all month long. I don't believe in necessarily making bloggers pay for advertising and I'd much rather show you blogs that I really enjoy reading. And I hope you end up enjoying them too!

This month, I've chosen Shari from The Misty Mom.  I've followed her blog for a few years now and have had a few comments back and forth. She's not someone I know very well, but she's been thoughtful in her comments and always supportive. She does focus on beauty and lifestyle, but for all of my readers that are parents, she also focuses posts on her life as a mom. There's something for everyone!

InstaMonth for October 2017

It's November! Yay yay yay! Holiday drinks are at Starbucks and my mind has already started the switch from Halloween to Thanksgiving and Christmas. More Christmas, if I'm honest. I still celebrate my Thanksgiving, but it's more lowkey for me on the years that I am in Canada since they celebrate their own in early October. I haven't whipped out the Christmas music yet, but it's only a matter of time!

If you're following me on my Instagram, I'll have two fun events that I will be sharing on my Stories tonight and tomorrow. Toronto's Cinesphere theatre is reopening and tonight is the media preview night. I'll share a few things from the event, but will go quiet as the film (Dunkirk) begins. I have never been to the Cinesphere, so I'm looking forward to going for the first time. And tomorrow is a media day for the grand opening of a Giant Tiger store. I love Giant Tiger, so it was a pleasant surprise to see the invite pop up in my email! So if you're interested in traveling to Toronto or live in the area, these might interest you.

Now, here are a few pics from my Instagram in October!

October 2017 Favorites

It's officially my favorite time of the year! I pretty much live for September-December, but especially the time that it is now. That moment that it isn't just autumn by name, but by feel. It's slightly overcast, there's a cool and crisp breeze in the air, and the leaves have changed and are starting to fall. Fall will never not be my favorite season. It's perfection. And all of the holidays make it that much better. Give me fall and early winter any day. I'm here for it!

Fall is also my favorite time for beauty and fashion. The dark colors and layers? Yes, please! All things cozy and comfortable? Heck yes! Here are some of my recent favorites that are making me just as happy as my favorite season. Let me know what you have been loving this season!

Shiseido Influenster Box

Sorry to have two boxes back to back (if that bothers any of you), but that's just how the timing worked out in my schedule. Today, I'm sharing one of Influenster's latest boxes. It's full of Shiseido goodies, which is a brand rather new to me. I say that, because I freaking love their facial cotton squares. Seriously, the best cotton squares on the market and worth every penny. Other than that, I can't think of a Shiseido product that I have tried before this!

Products inside the box are: Synchro Skin Lasting Liquid Foundation, Inkstroke Eyeliner, Rouge Rouge lipstick, Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate, and an adorable zipper pouch. Keep reading for my thoughts and swatches!
