Shopping my closet II

A few months ago I took everything out of my closet, decluttered a few pieces that I hadn’t worn in ages, cleaned the shelf and washed the floor and then put everything back in. I love a good closet declutter! I hung everything on a hanger facing the wrong way so that, if in six months or so, there was anything remaining on a hanger facing the wrong way I’d know that piece can probably be sold or donated.

One of the pieces still on a hanger facing the wrong way was my chambray shirt. I bought it years ago thinking that I would wear it all the time. That hasn’t been the case. I decided to hit up Pinterest again to see if I could breathe some new life into this piece.

The inspiration:

Oh honey… No. A Review of Honey Potion by Farmacy Beauty

Farmacy Beauty Honey Potion review

Back in November, when Sephora had their VIB sale, I ordered the Sephora Favourites Scouted by Sephora Kit. The Sephora Favourites kits are a great way to try out some premium products without breaking the bank. One of the products in the kit was the Farmacy Beauty Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask with Echinacea GreenEnvy Honey (phew, that’s a moniker and a half).

All Night Long

Hello there! It seems like it’s been quite a while since we’ve seen a regular beauty related post here on Poutine and Prada!

I’ve mentioned this product once or twice on my Instagram account but it deserves a full post because it’s a game changer. A year or two ago I started noticing changes in my skin, in particular dry patches popping up on my face. It was something I’d never really had to deal with before. I tried a number of different night creams and sleep masks. I exfoliated. I even tried vaseline. Nothing really helped until I tried the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant Nighttime Miracle Moisturizer on a whim. It was a good whim.

Resolutions

I’ve never been a particularly goal oriented person. I don’t have a five year plan. I don’t make lists and aggressively check off each item. I’m organized but it’s not on paper. I’ve always been a go-with-the-flow person and in some ways that’s a really good thing. I’ve had a lot of amazing experiences because of my willingness to go along with whatever life throws at me. On the other hand, I sometimes wonder if life would be better in some ways, such as my career and finances, if I were more into pursuing and achieving goals.

Soap and Glory

Well hello! Here we are in 2014. I can’t believe it, can you? I had my birthday and now I’m a year older, if not any wiser. So far this year has been tumultuous. Without going into any great detail, it’s not been great. That said I’m starting fresh and 2014 officially begins now in my world. Happy 2014 friends!

So I’ve already talked about the Soap and Glory Sugar Crush Body Buttercream. You know I adore it. You know what else I adore? The Soap and Glory Sugar Crush Body Wash.

I like it so much that I went all the way to Burnaby to get it. I had to take a bus and the sky train! It took an hour. I regret nothing. The scent is the same as the lotion. Light, fresh, and limey. It lathers beautifully. The product itself isn’t super thick but it suds up really creamy and rich. There’s a tone of the stuff in the bottle as well, it’s 500 ml. I’ve been using it for three weeks and only about a fifth of the bottle is gone!

This body wash is a total win. Do I recommend it? You betcha. Scoop it up, you won’t regret it. It’s available at some Shopper’s Drug Marts, and online at Sephora’s website.
