What’s In My Makeup Bag?

When it comes to makeup, I wish I could say that I didn’t wear any and that I just walked out of the house looking like I am on the cover of Vogue magazine. Unfortunately, that is not the case. Makeup has been part of my everyday routine for well over a decade, and something tells me it always will be. But, to be honest, I like makeup. I like the transformation and I like seeing myself go from tired mom to “Oh okay, maybe she got at least 6 hours sleep last night.” I am not a makeup artist by any means, in fact I really envy those girls that constantly do their makeup flawlessly. It’s a real skill. I do however appreciate makeup and quality products. I am a creature of habit and when I find something I like I normally stick with it. I have a couple of girlfriends that I would place under the category of “makeup experts” so I have picked up some great product recommendations from them throughout the years. The absolute worst part about makeup is that you pay for what you get. I have tried countless eyeshadows, mascara, foundations etc. and for the most part, the ones I tend to use usually have a bit of a price tag. None the less, I thought I would share what is in my makeup bag!

Enjoy! x

NuCerity International: Catch the Wave Confrence

This past weekend the company that I am an independent distributor for had their world conference in none other than sunny San Diego! What are the chances right?

I was so excited since this was my very first conference after being with the company for a few years. My aunt, other distributors from Sudbury and the rest of our team from around Canada and different parts of the world flew down for the 3 day long conference.

Honestly, it by past by expectations by a landslide. First of all, I had the best time ever. It was such a blast to be in a room with so many like-minded, passionate people. Second, I learnt so much and was constantly surprised by new information this company was giving us that I filled a notebook with useful info and tips. Third, they had a guest speaker, Jack Canfield founder and collaborator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul books and wow…this guy knows what he is talking about. His messages about law of attraction and the power of positive thinking really come into perspective when you’re in a business like this.

I felt like I had so much to say about this conference, but my mind is going a mile a minute reminiscing back to how great it was. Here are just a few…several…pictures from my weekend!
