Yay Fun WeekendSunday, August 25, 2013
Good morning, dear readers! :D
I hope that you have been having an awesome weekend so far!
Yesterday I was able to go into town and visit some friends that I hadn't seen in over a year. We went out to a bar and we stayed there until closing time (after 2 a.m.!). I think I got home at around 3 in the morning, so I was really tired when I got back XD.
While it will be a bit for me to have another nail-related post (I am currently reviewing some nail strips so I am waiting with them on my nails to see how long they last), I wanted to write something for my blog, as I have been really busy this past week.
Question: do any of you lovely people know of some good cruelty-free sunscreen? I have the most finicky skin ever, and every sunscreen I use breaks me out :(. I want to wear protection but I can't seem to find something that doesn't cover me in blockages the day after.
I wish Lush made a sunscreen! I cannot believe how many products I use have been replaced by Lush products! (Little did I know when I entered that Lush store at the beginning of the year that I would get a full-blown Lush addiction.)
I found an interesting article about some common beauty myths. I have read elsewhere as well that you don't need a cream specifically for the eye area, which is great. I am huge on skincare, but there are so many confusing aspects of it for me. For years I had the notion that more expensive = better for your skin, and that is not always the case.
I really need to quit smoking again, and this time to try and stay on a diet and not replace cigarettes with food. I can't believe that I have been a smoker for 15 years already O_O!! Uuugh! The last time I quit smoking I went for about 5 months, but started smoking again after gaining weight. I have an electronic cigarette, but to be honest it doesn't have the same throat hit as an actual cigarette, so I don't use it as much as I should.
Oh! I also got the new Lush Times in the mail a couple days ago. To all of you fellow Canadians, they are bringing back Let the Good Times Roll permanently (well, as permanent as Lush products can be XD). A kettle-corn inspired face wash would be amazing for the autumn!!! I can't wait to try it! :D I also wanted to mention that that was the only new product listed in there, as the fall and winter collections are not listed. I hope that they bring back Ghost shower gel for fall (lily-scented shower gel? Yes please!). So while this issue isn't as product-oriented as I would usually prefer, it does have some super awesome articles about recycling, bee-keeping, bullying and other subjects. I definitely suggest giving it a read if you get the chance.
Anyway, I wanted to check in and I hope that you have a super great day!! :D
