HEYYyyyyy How ya DOIN’? I know, I’ve been a bad blogger. But you see, I was in California all last week and just didn’t have the time, or the will to blog! So forgive me! But I’m here to to share my trip and some other stuffs too!
Before I left, I decided to clean out my computer room-a bit HAHA. I found this, but didn’t have the heart to throw it out!
GAWWWWD. I miss those days! The whole waiting for the delivery! And sitting all day and all night reading until you finished the book! Sigh… I miss it SO MUCH.
I got some new Nikes again haha! I love Zumba! And I needed another pair to rotate with the other ones I got. And man, runners(not SNEAKERS LOL) are so bright and happy now! If I wore a colour like these in the early 80s, it would have been social suicide dudes. Thank the lord you don’t have to deal with THAT.
Yup. I hit VIB Rouge with Sephora….which isn’t hard when you buy for two people. I buy things for Marky too, and mostly we buy skincare to be honest. And I don’t know if you’ve noticed but most skincare items are starting to cost about $100 each easy so…yeah. It’s not hard to get VIB Rouge if you are like me. I’ll say this…I LOVE the Le Marc Le Rouge Lipsticks…more on that in another post!
I got the most AMAZING gift from my Aveeno friends: the NEW Daily Moisturizing Lotion Sheer Hydration Lotion which is AMAZING. It feels so GOOD. SO LIGHT. And they sent me a gift certificate to Bliss Spas! You know, as a Beauty Blogger I’ve NEVER had a pedicure. Like ever. It scares me haha! But I’m thinking of getting a facial! Or maybe some yoga! Not sure yet! But I’m excited and grateful nonetheless.
Before we left for California, Marky’s College CalARTS had their Portfolio Day, where students showcase their work and companies come to the school to look and see and hire and offer internships! It’s pretty cool!
Disney Features and Dreamworks Products were very interested in Marky’s work and called her back to talk to her! And since then she’s also had emails from Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network to apply for internships! SO excited for her! Although, that means she won’t come home this summer. 🙁 But hey, such is life…it’s all good! And I’m so PROUD of her.
She gave me her Beymax Pin Disney Features gave her–I will treasure it FOREVER. It represents everything I hoped would happened for her-proof she’s doing well at college and proof that someday, Marky will be a force to be reckoned with in the Animation world!
Then it was time for us to leave for California to visit my Marky!
This Dermalogica Climate Control Lip Treatment was awesome on the plane ride. Kept my lips comfy and hydrated the whole trip!
Found some Laneige skincare at Target WTF. See, this is one of many reasons they failed in Canada! Why wasn’t this brand sold here? This Sleep Mask is pretty awesome! Glad to have found it! I don’t notice the comforting scent it apparently has, but it works really well!
I love California. And all the fresh produce. The hotel we stay at when visiting Marky is a Marriot Residence Inn, and the staff remembers us-heck I give them HUGS now lol! And so, we get a special bowl of fresh berries when we come down…I’m telling you…HUGS is money. Hugs will get you all kinds of love! HUG more often. You’ll thank me!
Every morning, these guys cross your path in California…we don’t see many of them in dry Alberta. They fascinate me…like wow. So cool…but I like worms too so…sorry haha. I should have studied Entomology or Biology more at University instead of Chemistry methinks…. 😛
I’m kinda’ having a Bobbi Brown Moment for some reason! I never really got into the brand, but lately as I’ve gotten older, the brand is starting to appeal to me for some strange reason. I picked up a few peachy items in California, and so far I’m loving them! Especially the Pastel Peach Powder Blush-it looks so pale in the pan, but WOW pigmentation! And it glows too! Blush Fiend LOVE.
DISNEYLAND. You know I had to visit! These orange flowers on some of the trees there were so pretty! I wish they’d grow here! WHAT ARE THEY!!!
The desserts OH MY. Like WHY.
BEYMAX APPLES. Sorry, too cute to eat for me!
This Rose Raspberry Mickey Macaron was so GOOD. You could taste the rose, and the raspberries were so FRESH. YUMMM.
It’s a good thing we walked an average of almost 30K steps every day at Disneyland!
And that’s just counting when I had my phone in my hand or pocket. Dumb Apple. The app only counts steps that way. I’m pretty sure we logged well over 30K the days we were at the park…my body could FEEL it…getting out of bed was an experience I’ll tell ya! SO hard… like I was hit by a truck or something. But once I got going all was well!
Oh HEY… you know the tequilas they sell in California Adventure Park sure help with any kind of pain you’re dealing with dude…that’s why they sell them there I’m positive…liquid MEDICATION. And they ain’t watered down at all nosiree…you can taste tequila for sure!
There’s some cool Maleficent art at the parks still, even though the movie came out quite awhile ago…I’m late to the party, but MAN…I really love the movie a lot! I think it was a great live version movie of the cartoon! Kinda’ obsessed with the makeup looks in it, which is why I bought that Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Fresh Watermelon because that’s what the makeup artist used to get that amazing peach flush on Aurora’s cheeks! I’ve heard the Cinderella movie is really good too! Excited to see it now for sure! Might even go see it at theatre for once lol!
Phew! I think that’s enough haha! Loads of pics and thoughts! It’s hard to get back in the blogging groove when you’ve been gone on holidays! Posts like this help me get the blogging mojo back. I have loads of stuff to show you in upcoming posts so stay tuned!
And Bobbi Brown! It’s kinda of amazing me at the moment! Have you suddenly been intrigued by a brand you’ve ignored?
