Mini Dollarama Haul

from L to R
- Blue Raspberry Sour Whips (for my bro) $1
- John Frieda Root Awakening Strength-Restoring Hair Spray $2
- Cosmetic Sponges $1.25
- E.L.F eye shadow brushes x2
- Werther's Original Assorted $2

When I first picked this up, I was very excited but I misread the label... I originally thought that this was a strength restoring leave in spray, but unfortunately it's a hair spray, which is a product I rarely use... but I do own the rest of the collection, so I'll be doing an overall review of it later, maybe my opinion on it will change.
I've finally found the E.L.F eye shadow brushes after hearing about them from fellow Toronto bloggers for the longest time, but guess what? lol I purchased 2 of the same brushes just in case I couldn't find them again && they're different sizes, the one on the right is slightly wider && shorter!!!

The END!!!

Collective Haul: SDM, Sephora, Beauty Star, BBW

  I’m doing a collective haul today...this haul was from before the holidays so I’ve used most of the products already, but not long enough for reviews~ But I will be having reviews up as soon as I figure out an outline, I'd also like to apologize ahead time that my first handful of posts might be very jumpy, still getting used to blogging... i've only had two posts lol!
[The prices in green are the prices I paid, the ones in purple are the original prices...&& all prices are in CND]

  • Essie Nail Polish - 725 Pretty Edgy [$3.99 - $5.99 or $6.99]
I got the two nail polishes for $3.99 each, from the reject bin!!! I'm not sure why they were there in the first place... since they were in good condition, purchased from Toronto Beauty Supply Shop?(it's one block from eaton centre... I'll find the full name the next time I go, it was the first time I've ever gone in, even though I've walked past it a million times before)

One of my favorite foundations =D it's my second bottle ~ (Sephora)

I have the cleanser, and it seems to work great, so I got the scrub... so far I'm liking it!!!

I swore I wouldn't dye my hair... but that little vow never goes far lol!!! It was on sale && I got a coupon... so I had to get it =p

Prize from a TDHally's giveaway
this isn't part of the haul, but i met up with her on the same day so TADA!!! 

This was my first time winning a giveaway and actually receiving the prize so it was REALLY exciting. There was actually a little mix-up when she announced the winners because there was another "Steph" that contacted her saying she was the winner and she didn't check so she sent her the prize, then when I contacted her she realized it was the wrong Steph, but she gave me a prize nonetheless! So nice... I've also purchased items from her facebook shop The Doll House Shop before and had a really good experience, great customer service!!!

The next couple items were all from Beauty Star~
(when shopping at pmall/ pacific mall you have to be careful when you're buying products because some places sell fake stuff)

- My Beauty Diary Masks - Black Pearl, White Bulgarian Rose, Japanese Cherry Blossom
 $13 a box -  3 for $30
- Skin79 Diamond Collection Prestige BB cream [$22 - $30]
Beauty Star carries a wide variety of asian products and offer them at a decent price point (NO TAX =D) && the last couple times I've gone, they've always had specials!!! 

Bath & Body Works

- CO Bigelow Green Tea Whipped Body Mousse [50% off $7]
- CO Bigelow Green Tea Body Cleanser [50% off $7]
- CO Bigelow Triple Hot Chocolate Lip Shine [ 75% off $2ish]

I rarely purchase products from Bath & Body Works at full price, since they always have sales!!!


It's been less then a week and I've already posted 3 posts (including this one) *pats self on back* 
but I feel like I'm neglecting my youtube...&& I'm not sure why my font sizes keep changing 0.o please let me know if this was too wordy for a haul post...

Perfect Winter Drink

Toronto was freezing today~ even colder then yesterday, my legs were shaking, my fingers were trembling and my teeth were chattering, so I warmed up with this hot drink. I've actually posted as a quick tweet before but I figured, I would make an "official" post on this simple recipe with pics & all~

- 1/2 pkg Carnation Hot Chocolate 
- 1 pkg Maxim Gold Label 3-in-1 coffee (korean)
- 1 mug
- milk
- hot water
- mini marshmallows

1. Pour half the package of hot chocolate powder into the mug
2. Add one package of Maxim 3-in-1 coffee mix 
3. Fill the mug half way with milk
4. Fill the rest of the mug with hot water, leaving 1/2" from the brim
5. Mix well
6. Add the mini marshmallows
7. Pop in the mug in the microwave for 15-20 seconds
(remember to watch it, marshmallows expand in heat and it might spill over)
8. ENJOY!!!

*random note... this is my favorite mug, not sure why... perhaps of the shape/ weight
