What I Bought This Week #48 & #49

Happy December! We're back from Japan and slowly getting back to routine. It was a bit of an involved process to split our Japan purchases into two separate blog posts so this edition of What I Bought This Week will be a 2-in-1. I grouped our Japan purchases by category — I only have approximate amounts spent, as I haven't reconciled my credit cards yet, plus all the receipts are in Japanese so they're a bit too much effort to navigate. I've posted photos of my own purchases, along with Hubby and my shared purchases. Hubby also purchased a few things, but they're not shown below. Since coming back, we've only picked up a few necessities, namely groceries and Truffle's litter. I also grabbed a Food & Drink mag from the LCBO today for some holiday inspo. By the way, my Japan vlogs have been posted and I'll be doing Vlogmas this year! All vlogs can be found on Authenblissity. :)

What I Bought This Week #47

Sooooo... I thought this would be a light week in terms of purchases and things I bring into my home... but turns out I was mistaken. Lots and lots came into the condo this week. I received a few goodies from the people in my life. I ordered some stuff that came in this week. We went to Costco—where we spent, ahem, over $100 on cheese. Yes, we went a bit overboard, but it will all get eaten. In other news, we're currently en route to Japan! I'm going to do my best to remember to post next Sunday when we're in Naoshima... but I may forget, so please bear with me if post #48 is a few days late. Have a wonderful week!

What I Bought This Week #46

Week #46 saw some pretty standard purchases, with two notable exceptions:

1) I forgot to post a photo of the Atomy Eco Mild Bubble Cleanser and Lip Treatment. I was going to switch over to my new-to-me phone for photos but changed my mind at some point... completely forgetting that I had one lonely photo on the iPhone for last week's post.

2) I bought a clear tea mug! This is technically not no-buy eligible; however, I thought it would be a good way to showcase the teas from the advent calendar during vlogmas. It was on sale so I decided to pick it up as an early Christmas gift to myself. :)

This coming week is going to be a lot of finishing up some of my project work and getting ready for Japan. I don't expect I'll buy many things as we have to finish up some food before we leave. I'll be back with post #47 next Sunday but #48 may be a bit late.

Have a great week!

What I Bought This Week #45

Happy November!! Wow, we're in the last two months of the year and I'm still not sure where the first 10 went. This week was a whirlwind and I didn't bring much into the home as a result. There was a little bit of this and that, but mostly groceries. My friend came over last night and I made a vegetarian Japanese curry for her with extra-firm tofu. This was my first time using tofu in the dish and it was delicious! It will definitely be a repeat occurrence. Hubby recently watched The Gamechangers—a documentary about plant-based high performance athletes. I remember wishing he was with me when I initially watched it at Hot Docs so I'm doing a happy dance that it's finally been released. Since watching that, he's been more open to eating tofu. It's been lovely.

What I Bought This Week #44

Happy Fall Back Weekend!!

This is one of my favourite weekends of the year. I feel like I have so much time and I can get so much done.

In terms of things I brought into my home this week, the highlight was definitely the little welcome gift from my new boss -- a sweet set of ban.do pencils. YES!! Perhaps I'm in the minority, but I still love using old school pencils that have to be manually sharpened. I certainly was the only one who still used those at my previous full-time job, but it seems as though my new part-time job has a soft spot for all things nostalgic and retro, which is so lovely for me. All that to say, WHEEEE I am loving my new job.

I'm still rather behind on YouTube videos, but now that the big part of one of my projects is done, I'll be working on posting some new content very very soon. x
