October Monthly Favourites: 2016

 

Hey guys! So if you have been following me on social media, you'd know that I just got back from a lovely two week trip to New Zealand with my parents who are visiting me from Canada! We had such a great time and I am hoping to catch up with you all soon in an upcoming September/October Coffee Break! I have been so busy with my parents visiting that I haven't had a chance to chat with you lately. I'm so sorry about that! Never fear, I made sure that my October Favourites post would be up and ready to go for you all! I have actually been doing really well with paring down my spending, and only one of these items is a new purchase. Some are new releases that were sent via PR samples but I am trying to save my money for some of the new Christmas releases I know I will want to purchase. Keep reading to find out what I've been loving this month.


Beauty Bin: August and September Empties 2016



Well, it's been a little longer than I was hoping since I last did a Beauty Bin post, but never fear! I have combined my empties for August and September so we can have a look at what I have used up as we edge closer towards the end of the year.

This Beauty Bin series has been one of my favourites this year and it truly has been amazing to see the things that I go through the most and the items which I thought I would get through and have been struggling to use up. If you're keen to know how I have gone with my Project Pan Project for 2016, you may want to check out my recent Project Pan Update on the blog which shows what I was able to finish up in around 6 months.



Dupe Alert: A Drugstore Sponge Better Than The Beauty Blender?



This post may seem like blasphemy, and as a lover of the original Beauty Blender, it does almost feel sacrifical to say that I have found a dupe that I prefer to the original, however it is true!!! With such a great find, I had to dedicate a post to this awesome dupe and share with you all. If you're a big fan of the Beauty Blender but maybe you don't like the pricetag, or if you haven't yet tried the Beauty Blender due to it's price, you will love this post! Keep reading to find out the dupe that I've found and where you can get your hands on one as well.


Skincare 101: The Importance of a Good Skincare Routine



As you can probably tell, I have been really focusing in on my skincare lately. I thought today I would share with you some of the things that I incorporate into my skincare regime for healthy, clearer and more radiant skin. It's important to understand that everyone is different, and some of these things may or may not work for you. I think that often our routines are even more important than the products we use. Unfortunately for me, I was not blessed with perfect skin so it's always been something I have had to work hard to maintain and be diligent with each night when I do my routine. I've teamed up with Ego Skincare* for this post who offer lots of skincare advice on their website here where these tips have also been featured. Ego are an australian owned and manufactured skincare company that have products available exclusively in select pharmacies.
