Recent Gets

Lots to show you guys today.

Today started bright and early at the gym with a nice and sweaty spin session.

 

Towards the end of my workout, the alarms went off and it turns out someone got hurt near the treadmills. Kind of scary, but there were tons of people rushing to their side. Hope he’s ok!

Fast forward a bit, and I got myself ready for the day.

 

I first had to drop of some stuff at the Y downtown, then I figured I’d get my ring cleaned while I was in the area.

 

Nice and sparkly!

Next up, the mall. I party fouled and walked into Lululemon first to try on my coveted jacket. Tyler, if you’re reading this, size 8. Thanks

 

Le sigh. It was so comfy and wonderful and delicious.

My only purchases from a 2 hour stint was a thermal shirt and hat. Both on SUPER discount sale.

 

 

Since I’m sharing some material good with you all, I might as well tell ya what came in the mail. First, my Sephora order:

 

 

How to Look the Best at Everything by my favorite makeup brand ever, Benefit

Because I ordered this online, I got a sweet freebie bag along with it:

 

6 perfume samples, some eye shadows, mascara, toner, and some oils. Not too shabby!

And….my Glymm box! Before moving to Calgary, I was OBSESSED with getting my Birchbox every month (they only deliver to the US). After being here for nearly 9 months, I finally came across a similar monthly subscription service for Canadians!!! Woo hoo!! This was what I got in my November box:

 

 

Fancy Schmancy shampoo and conditioner (good timing with my ‘new’ hair!), deep blue polish (appropriately named The New Black), body scrub, and perfume.

Now on to some of my crafting accomplishments:

I actually saved a couple of the boxes from my Birchbox subscription and repurposed them into gift boxes! How smart am I? A coat of paint, glue, and glitter. The end.

 

A yarn wreath:

 

And some Christmassy pots that have been sealed with a pottery spray that has a been of sheen.

No, not that kinda sheen. The shine:

 

Now it’s time for me to get started on dinner. Bacon is involved.

7 Things

A few things.

1) I bought all this today

2) My ring was finally ready. You bet your bippy I hopped right in my car to go get it. Only downfall, I had just painted my nails, so the job got a little ruined. Normally, I’d be ticked, but I make exceptions for shiny big diamonds!

3) Another spinach salad for dinner. Gotta get in those veggies!

4) Now that I have more equipment at home, I am more inclined for impromptu workouts. Case in point: right now. Then Layla got in the way.

Then she apologized.

Then I ended up just laying on the ball and watching 2 episodes of For Rent and Storage Wars.

5) I experienced rush hour traffic on my way home from the jeweler. HA! Calgary’s rush hour looks like ideal road conditions for Boston. Canada: 1 US: 0

6) Athena reminded me yesterday that the Healthy Living Summit is in Boston this year.

I’m saving up.

7) That is all.
