What I Bought This Week #25

This week was so much fun -- and I barely spent any money! My friend and I went to the Raptors' championship parade on Monday -- it was very intense but well worth the long wait. Patio season is my favourite time of the year, and hubby and I have been taking advantage of the beautiful weather by dining al fresco. We went out a few times, but we also BBQ'd at home and ate on the terrace a bunch! We have been experimenting with eating slow and eating less, which is pretty much the perfect mindset for this time of the year. On top of that, we've been trying to eat more balanced and nutritious meals; it's still a struggle some days but I think we've made some progress. I hope you've also been enjoying this lovely weather!

In other news, Truffle seems to be having trouble with his teeth again so I've been syringe-feeding him critical care 4-6 times a day. He gets a bit testy at times, but overall, he's been a really agreeable bunny with the feedings. We'll be taking him to the vet again this week. I hope he's ok.

Empties • April to May

Here is my latest empties video! These are the products I used up in April and May, before I started the foil packet sample challenge on June 1st. I'm making slow but steady progress with using up my products!

What I Bought This Week #24

I drafted this blog post yesterday afternoon but it's late because RAPTORS PARADE!! Also, we left our most recent purchase in the trunk when we returned our rental car last night and hubby had to go pick it up this morning. :)

Now that all the birthday festivities are done, I'm starting to get back to my regular routine of spending and eating. We pretty much only purchased food and groceries this week, but I was treated to a few goodies -- I picked up my birthday gift from Sephora and I also received a lovely scarf from my mother-in-law. I wore the scarf today and it's a keeper!

What I Bought This Week #23

I kind of went off my no-buy this week. I'm a huge fan of glassware -- barware in particular -- and the "Capri Cordial" sippers from CB2 are very similar to glasses I've been coveting for a very long time. Truth be told, I was looking for more of a cocktail glass, but I don't make a lot of cocktails at home. I'm much more into port and sherry, which can be perfectly enjoyed in these tiny sippers. I initially bought two glasses, but I love them so much that I went back for a couple more. The rest of the purchases for this week are the usual -- groceries for us and food for our pets. We also bought a ton of goodies to share with our friends (mostly junk food and not pictured below).

What I Bought This Week #22

This blog post could probably have been called "What I Brought Home This Week" -- hubby and I went to a couple of events (one PR event and one paid event), and we brought home some freebies. My birthday celebrations also continued this week and I received a few surprise gifts from a couple of sweet friends. I feel so lucky and spoiled to have such wonderful people in my life!

3 Month Beauty Sample Challenge • Foil Packet Edition



It's time to get my sample collection under control. I'm challenging myself to use up as many beauty samples as I can over the next three months. In this video, I count up the foil packets remaining in my collection to establish a baseline and I'll report back in September with my results. If you wish to join the fun, just gather up all your foil packets and start using them up! Let's see how many we can get through in June, July, and August. :)

What I Bought This Week #21

It was my birthday week this week, so I didn't buy much by way of groceries or cook much at home. I definitely overindulged so I'll gradually be trying to get back to healthier eating again over the next little while. I forgot to take a photo of a food magazine that I picked up at Depanneur last week -- I read it cover-to-cover during an extended Epsom salt bath on my birthday and I can happily say that this magazine is fantastic. I also received a few birthday treats this week, which were lovely and delicious. The super delicious baklava and mini pastries are from Serano Bakery -- hubby and I always pick up a few treats on the way home from Lulu's vet. The selection is overwhelming, but you can't go wrong if you go with their recommendations.
