IDKWID: Makeup Favs of the Month| Blogmas day 15 + 16

Hey everyone!

( I know, I know, I’ve been lacking in the posting every day but I’m really excited about this kay so bear with me?) 

IDKWID?! It’s a new series (that I’m so excited for): “I don’t know what I’m doing”. 

I’m so far from a makeup guru and I really have no clue what I’m doing so I figured I’d make it into a series for you guys 🙂 I’m not just going to do makeup stuff either! It’s going be cooking and fashion as well! I’m so so excited to start this series ahh! 

 

Anyways, let’s get to it! Just because I have no clue what I’m doing doesn’t mean I don’t love makeup just as much as the next person…

*note: I haven’t bought any makeup since I went vegan so some of the products may not be vegan/cruelty-free.

All cruelty-free products will have:                                    .                              and vegan products:

So, here are my makeup favourites of December:

Physician’s Formula: Murumuru Butter Bronzer

I am so in love with this bronzer! I find that I can also use it for contouring as it isn’t super yellow/orange and more on the.. ashy? side. It is pretty expensive, but I’ve had it for almost a year and haven’t hit pan yet so that’s good!

Benefit: Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner in RSVP

I just keep reaching for this eyeshadow… I’m using it as a base or on it’s own it’s so good. It is just as creamy and creaseless as it claims to be! I just realized that you can’t see the colour from this picture but it’s like a champagney kind of colour?

*I’m so sorry this product isn’t actually available through Benefit anymore though – I have amazon linked though!

e.l.f: waterproof lengthening and volumizing mascara

WOW this $3 mascara is incredible. I love it for everyday use because it lengthens my lashes like crazy and I love how black it is. Unfortunately, if you’re looking for volume I don’t think this is the mascara for you though

N.Y.X: liquid suede cream lipstick in soft-spoken

I bought this colour as an everyday, wearable shade and it totally is! Make sure you wait for it to fully dry though or else it will smudge a bit when you eat. Other than that it’s fantastic!

e.l.f: eyebrow kit in medium

So I literally use this every day. I only really use the wax side though, not the powder side; it’s only $3 so it’s still worth it. It’s the perfect colour and perfect consistency for redefining my brows

Essence: long lasting nude lipstick in 02 porcelain doll

This is a perfect, pinkie nude lipstick that is great for everyday use! It’s shiny and partially sheer so really great for wearing all the time since it doesn’t dry out my lips at all. Also, all of Essence’s products are so cheap – win win win

Daiya Mac and Cheese Review| Blogmas day 13

Hey everyone!

Before I get into the mac and cheese I just wanted to give you guys a little update:

 

I GOT MY CAMERA (and an iPhone 5c which I used to take those pictues 🙂 )

It’s definitely been an amazing pre-Christmas for me guys!

 

Anyways, that’s not what I’m going for today, or erm for yesterday haha.

I made Daiya’s Mac and Cheese for dinner tonight and I thought it would be cool to review it for you guys! I’m allergic to dairy and have a whole bunch of other dietary restrictions (I might do a post about that later, I don’t know yet). So because of all this I went vegan! I’ll definitely go over that in a separate post don’t worry).

I should also preface this by telling you guys that I’m GARBAGE at cooking so like here goes nothing!

Okay so boiling the water went swimmingly (ha… water… swimmingly).

The real test is going to be what happens after the water boils. The packaging of the mac and cheese was fantastic in terms of ease: just a clear plastic bag with the noodles and a packet with the sauce.

Putting the noodles in and waiting for them to cook also went better than expected. The water didn’t even boil over!

A word of caution: there is a LOT of sauce in that packet. It also looks kinda nasty at this point but I kept trooping.

After everything was stirred in, it looked AMAZING

Kraft Dinner or Daiya?! Based on looks I’m blown away how good it looked.

So taste wise it’s very, very good. No, it doesn’t taste exactly like Kraft Dinner, but when you can’t eat dairy it’s a really good substitute.

My one and only wish is that they wouldn’t keep the noodles in the clear plastic, it’s a total waste. Other than that, I’m 100% going to repurchase this because it’s easy to make and tastes great!
