InstaMonth for January 2019

It's a little later in the month than when I usually post these, but better late than never. It might also just feel later since this month is shorter. Everyone talks about how January feels like it takes forever, but then here comes February that feels like it lasts as long as a blink. The two extremes!

So here we are with my round-up of a few pictures from my Instagram during January. I have to be honest and say that I am not really feeling Instagram right now. I still get on and post, like, and comment, but it has been feeling impossible to grow lately. I'm super grateful for the connections and relationships that I have on there, but it's a bit of a blow to sign in and always see a mass exodus of followers. As someone who tries to grow more organically, it just feels like the algorithm is doing me no favors. I just wanted to say all of that to let you know that if you feel like that, you are not alone. And if I'm following you, I'm trying to do more about showing support and finding you in my list even when the algorithm doesn't.

Blog of the Month for February 2019

In January, Liz from from January Girl 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 Mimi from Spooky Chic as my featured blogger. Mimi has recently come back from a lengthy hiatus, but happily she is back. It's nice to see, especially since she's a longtime blogger of over six years. She recently did a post about her love of the Google Home and I am right there with her. Since getting my Google Home Mini for my birthday, I have been obsessed. I've thought about doing a post on some of the commands and games that you can do with it. She covers more of the smart plug aspect, which is something I really need to do but haven't yet. My home is just semi-smart right now, I guess you'd say. Haha! Mimi covers a lot of lifestyle and beauty that I know a lot of you will like. Ler her know I sent you!

January 2019 Favorites

Man, I really thought I was past the getting the year wrong scenario but nope. Three times, I tried to type 2018 when I was titling these pictures. It's February now, so I have to pull myself together. I'm going to blame my lack of coffee on my lack of working brain cells! That and a lack of a desk calendar, because I've yet to get one for this year. Here's hoping they are on discount now that we're officially in the second month!

Here are my January 2019 (take note, Wendy, take note!) favorites. I hope you all have a great weekend. I'm ready for the Superbowl, partly for the food but mostly to watch and root for the Patriots. It's no secret who I root for! Super pumped they made it another year! Will you be watching it? Also, let me know some of your recent faves in the comments!

Low Carb Cheeseburger Casserole ft. Sir Kensington's Sauces

I was sent two Sir Kensington sauces to try from Chick Advisor- their Mayonnaise with Avocado Oil and the Special Sauce Remoulade. The recipe I'm sharing today works perfectly with either, but my favorite pairing is with the Special Sauce. If you're like me, the minute you hear "special sauce", you think of a burger from a specific fast food chain. And this one gives it a run for its money and dare I say that I like it more?!

Below, you can find my review of both products and my recipe for a low carb cheeseburger casserole. Obviously, you can enjoy this even if you're not doing low carb. I hope you'll try all three out!

Legendary Apothecary Smooth Feet

When given the chance to review this foot oil, I jumped at the opportunity. This year, one of my goals is to up my skincare game about the parts I neglect the most- feet being among them. As someone who lives in Toronto, I basically live in boots during the winter so something that will soften and hydrate my feet sounds like a savior. Honestly, I'm not sure if my feet go through more during boot season or sandal season!

A company called Legendary Apothecary have created a product called Smooth Feet that promises those very things. And for the past month, I have put the oil to the test! First, let's find out more about the product and then I will delve into my thoughts.

Essence Makeup Metal Shock Shadows

I wanted to get this post up on Friday, but I got hit with a migraine and I just did not want to sit at my laptop. That's another thing- I'm back on my super old and super slow laptop. The desktop monitor that I prefer to edit on decided that it just did not want to work. Luckily, the hard drive of the computer still works so I haven't lost anything. That would have been a lot worse. Been there, done that. Thank goodness for having a backup with my laptop. Old and ancient, but it gets the job done!

I'm finally getting around to posting my swatches of the Essence Makeup Metal Shock Shadows. I have four so far in Stars & Stories, Galaxy Rocks, Supernova, and Solar Explosion. For a spoiler as to if this is a positive review or not, you must be new because these have been featured in several of my favorites posts. I adore these! My collection may grow past these four in the next while. The price point is right at give or take $5! I get mine at Shoppers Drug Mart.

Old Navy Semi-Annual Clearance Sale Winter 2019

I couldn't resist. I tried, but then I saw a sweater that I had been wanting on massive discount and got nearly the entire order for what that sweater originally cost after added discounts and money back through eBates. I got a few things for myself and my husband for under $70 and I consider that a retail success. Because I just ordered these, most of them are still available online and possibly stores.

What I Got For Christmas 2018

I love these posts. Probably because I am such a curious person. Show me what's in your handbag, your fridge, what's on your wishlist, what you got for your birthday...I love it all. Not only does it tell me more about you, but it almost always gives me future ideas or shows me something I didn't even know existed. I've gotten a handful of things, read books, or listened to music that I now love in recent years because you originally shared and talked about them. And I get a lot of messages showing me things that you think I will love based on what I have shared in the past. I love that!

With that said, if these types of posts are not your thing, I totally get it. I won't take it personally if you exit out of this post, but I hope you'll stick around for other topics I post about. :) So here are a few things I got for Christmas. I'm dubbing it the "Christmas of Beverages" and you'll find out why below!
