2016 Empties #2 (May- July)

It's been quite a few months since I did an empties post and my progress has slowed down! There's been way too much new makeup and I can't seem to stay focused! But either way, here are some of the recent beauty items I've used up.

I decided to make it even shorter in terms of text as people probably don't read it anyways. I will list out all the items but if I don't have any further comments, the product was just okay.

bliss grapefruit+aloe body butter and soapy suds

As the weather is getting warmer, I like to switch my bath and body products to something with a fresh scent! These two bliss products have been sitting in my cabinets waiting to get used and I'm excited to finally take them out!

The bliss grapefruit + aloe scent is an uplifting citrus that makes you feel pampered. You can also smell the "sparkling" grapefruit, I don't know how, but you just do!

Entrance to SeaWorld

I just spent 3.5 days in San Diego and I can't wait to share my experiences! First up, is my tips and experiences visiting SeaWorld! This guide is best for friends and couples in the 20's and 30's. We spent an entire day (9am-9pm) at the park but if I was to do it again, I would have packed it in a shorter period of time and visited other parts of San Diego. That is not to say it wasn't fun as it was an absolute blast and one of the best attractions in the city!

Ticket Price: $69.99 for a regular 1 day pass
Gate Hours: 9am-9pm (This changes daily so please check before going)

In this post, I'll break down the attractions by Rides, Animal Exhibits, Animal Encounters, and Shows. Then I'll summarize and give a suggested itinerary that will get you in and out while seeing everything!

1000 Instagram Followers Giveaway!! - CLOSED

When I first started blogging 4 years ago, I never thought I'd be taking photos with a DSLR and working with PR firms to test out unreleased makeup. It's a goal of mine to hit 1,000 followers on Instagram in 2016 and I'm so grateful I was able to do it this early in the year.

To celebrate, I decided to put together three prize packs featuring makeup from brands that I discovered through blogging. These three prizes will be provided by the PR companies and therefore only available to Canadian residents. 

I don't want to forget my international followers this time, so I'm also giving away a $100 Sephora Gift Card! Enter one or all of the prize packs.

Music Festival Inspiration (Hair, Makeup, Outfit)

I spent the Canada Day weekend at Fvded in the Park and had a blast! Before attending though, I was searching up inspirations for my hair, makeup, and outfit. It was surprisingly difficult with way too many unwearable options! I decided to compile some inspirations and grouped it to those that are stereotypical "go with the flow" or more unique "make your own way". All of them however are wearable! Let's get started!
