HEY!!! HOW YOU DOIN’?? I know, I used that line on you last week, right? I really am Sorry, but I’ve just been living life and haven’t had time to bloggy blog! I’m back from California now, and so I thought I’d share a few snippets of my trip to get my toes all dipped back in the blogging waters…:D I have like TONS of skincare to share with you over the next while…and menopausal HELP too… but for now, let’s have some FUN. I like FUN. What’s life without fun, right?
Ok so Disneyland first, because you know…it’s my second home HA.
The biggest macaron I’ve ever eaten is this Mickey Salted Caramel Macaron from the Jolly Holiday Bakery(Yep-like from Mary Poppins-the decor is ADORBS-penguins and stuffs). We shared this of course, because it was the size of Marky’s head. Could have been a bit crispier on the cookie part though, but it was YUMMMmmmmm….
I can’t tell you how much I love that Marvel is part of the Disney Universe now, although I know that probably angers a lot of people but PFFFT I DON’T CARE. Makes me happy to see them here and all the art work around now! I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT. And maybe they’ll make some attractions/rides for them! YES. PLEASE.
It’s a family tradition to go see Disney’s Haunted Mansion redress into Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas. We’ve been going ever since we discovered Disneyland did it, which was by accident actually. Literally. We were supposed to go that summer as usual, but poor Terry tore his Achille’s tendon 2 days before our trip. He was out of town too working when it happened-REGINA of all places. Not the best city to go to the ER late on a Saturday night in Canada lemme tell ya… anyways we had to cancel the trip, disappointing 8 year old Marky who cried for DAYS hahaha. Thankfully, we had booked the trip on Air Canada Aeroplan points, so we rebooked for November that year and WOW. It was one of our best trips to Disneyland ever! It was COLD. Like below zero at night which we loved. Plus, we discovered the whole Nightmare Before Christmas stuffs and Marky fell in love with the movie, with the characters-it was like foreshadow extreme now that Tim Burton is an alumni of hers… 😀 proud MAMA here or what… :D:D
Although this FROZEN THANG??? Has gone a bit too far for my taste. Marky too. I don’t get the popularity of this film at all???? And neither does she, or the rest of her classmates..they all are really confused by the Frozen FANDOM. It’s really not that good of a story…so many flaws…and the animation is not that great…Tangled was SUCH a better story and movie! But you can’t shake a stick in California without hitting something from FROZEN. They’ve even removed my FAVOURITE MUPPETS 3D Show and replaced it with a Frozen Sing-a-long venue…UGGGHHHHHHHH…… and you can apparently build a snowman in another part…they truck REAL snow in from god knows where… like WTH DISNEYLAND. Give Frozen a rest. A lot of us that visit are from Alberta, and hello??? WE ARE WINTER. We come to escape the white stuff. Stop shoving it in our faces, PLEASE.
FOOD. OMG. FOOD.
This was the wedge salad at The House Of Blues Anaheim at Downtown Disney. I made the server laugh so hard when he brought it over because I kinda’ screamed: WHAT THE HELL IS THIS. Like holy HELL it’s a MEAL, not a salad??? I ate 1/3 of it because LOOK AT IT! Covered in blue cheese and bacon and dressing and it’s HALF OF A LETTUCE HEAD WTF.
NOPE. Not a salad dudes.
My makeup I wore most days consisted of these products. That Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation is like OMG so good. It’s kinda’ like the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation, but a bit more coverage. SO so good. Get it. I found it at Ulta. Which I kinda’ really dig! Maybe a bit more than Sephora even!
I got this Bare Mineral Marvellous Moxie Lipstick in Express Yourself there because LOOK at that colour! And the lipstick holder! I DIE. Spring in a lipstick or what! LOVE.
More food. THIS. IS. THE. BEST. ICE CREAM. EVER. Coolhaus started out as a food truck but they now sell their products in stores like Whole Foods across the USA, and DUDES. GET THIS one if you love figs like I do! YUMMM, big chunks of figs…it’s heavenly.
I love this stuff. It helps me sleep like nobody’s business. I bring back a couple in my suitcase every time, but seriously….I wish I could bring a CASE. On the hunt for a reasonable melatonin replacement now…menopausal sleeplessness is DIRE people.
You know I love me Tom Freakin’ Ford Lipsticks and it was KILLING me not being able to see this Lips And Boys Collection that everyone has been showing. So, when I saw them at the local(like 30 minutes away) Nordstrom’s I tried to get one that was unique and chose Orlando. ORLANDO. Which made me think of THIS of course from GHOST:
Orlando! You like it? It’s Autumn Sunrise-do you like it? LOL LOL I love that part hahaha!
Orlando turns cooler on my lips than the swatch, as it has silver glitter in it. Which you can’t feel at all, so YAY. Feels creamy and nice, just like the regular Tom Freakin’ Ford Lipsticks I love…wish I got another! These are mini-sized too which I kinda’ dig. Makes me feel like I can actually finish this lipstick for once!
I managed to check out the Guerlain Spring Collection! First one actually, as they put it out for me-in fact, I helped them set it up LOL. This is what I ended up buying-BLUSH BALLZ. I had to. You know I had to. Review coming soon!
And then it was time to say goodbye to my lovely redhead for a few months. 🙁 It was so nice to have her around for a few weeks…she’s so GROWN-UP now! Different. Yet the same, if that makes sense?? Almost adult! Almost…when she finally remembers to wash towels I’ll say FULL ADULT hahaha…. Miss her lots… Those are some caricatures of her classmates she drew.
And here’s a drawing from her figure drawing class where they get live models and draw 6 hours on Fridays…intense or what? She loves it and the teacher loves her, as she really can make people into cartoon characters!
She’s going to be extremely busy this semester as she has to make her own, all by herself, 90 second cartoon! She’s scared, but I know she can do it! So extremely proud of my kid, in case you can’t tell.. 😛
Ok, I think I’m good! Blogging mojo back haha! I have so much skincare to show you guys…like it’s gonna be :O LOTS…but I should warn you that the majority of my blogging will be about skincare in the future since I AM getting older…48 this Sunday folks holy GEEZE. I honestly thought I was going to be dead at 42 when I was little…swear to god… so every year after 42 is a gift, right? RIGHT. We’ll go with that. 😛 Even though my eyebrows are turning white…WHITE. EYEBROWS. YOU GUYZ.
*All of this was bought by me, ate by me, drank by me-except for that ridiculous FROZEN Listerine crap. NOPE.
