October Favourites

I've been loving these drugstore and high end products lately. And I wanted to share them with you.

This is my first time using Marcelle cosmetics. I was pleasantly surprised and impressed with Marcelle Accent Eyebrow Crayon and 2 in 1 Retractable Eyeliner in charcoal. Both are highly pigmented and long lasting. Marcelle can be found in Canadian drugstores and are sold in Canada only. However, you can purchase these products online. Another favourite is NYX retractable eyeliner.

I love Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoo eyeshadow in Bad to the Bronze for every day wear. No creasing and fading. You can find a variety of shades and colours.

I heard so much about Physicians Formula bronzers that I wanted to try one. I picked up Bronze Booster Beauty Balm in medium to dark shade. So happy I did! This is a more expensive bronzer for a drugstore brand but they make such great products!

IT CC cream SPF +50 (medium) is my favourite every day foundation. I can't live without it! And the new IT Your Skin But Better CC+ Airbrush Perfecting Powder is divine. It has a matte finish and makes your skin tone even, banish pores and doesn't settle in your fine lines and wrinkles! And IT Cosmetics makeup brushes are the best! IT Cosmetics is a high end product but worth the purchase. Sold exclusively on The Shopping Channel (TSC) in Canada and available on QVC and Sephora in the US.

What are your favourites?

Autumn Days

It was the perfect day for a morning stroll.

The air was cool and crisp. And the sun shone brightly.

Mr. O and I took a nature walk along the Waterfront Trail.

We followed the winding path and stopped to admire the beauty of the marshes.                                    

And we sat on a park bench and enjoyed the view. It was so calm and peaceful listening to the waves.

And we found a red maple leaf.

                                                                          Autumn is here!

                                                                  Enjoy it while it lasts!

"Bruh, stop trolling me!"


Pass me the urban dictionary because I have no idea what my teenage boys are talking about!

The language they speak with their friends isn't always understandable.

My eldest son once described a game with the word "vanilla" meaning you have to play the basics.

I joked that Mr.O plays in mocha!

"Mom, NO! Please! Are you trying to be cool again?"

Analogies aside, I guess I'm not the cool, hip, and tech savvy mom.



So smug.

Here's a sample of words used in daily conversation:

troll - Someone who is annoying or creates disruption or discord
rekt- When someone who gets completely destroyed or wrecked (in a game)
bodied- Same meaning as rekt
scrub- Someone who is bad at a game or activity
noob- Someone who knows little or newbie
P-cool - Pretty cool

Take notes Baby Boomers and Generation Xers.

J.P shakes his head at me, "Mom, you're such a noob."

Is that so?

'You're such a scrub!"

Dinner's ready...
