holiday wishlist *

Hello lovelies,

Long time no see, I apologize. I’ve been quite busy with school, volleyball and just life in general. School is going well, a little stressful at times, but the holidays are right around the corner. I’m going to be sticking around, so I will have lots of time to blog. I’ve also been quite busy because of volleyball. My school volleyball team did very well this year. We placed third in the city, and then went to provincials in Vancouver. We placed top 20 ( out of 400 teams ) which is pretty good! Anyways, I am super excited for the holidays and decided to put together a little gift guide / wish list.

I’m not asking for all of these items, they are just to give you some ideas of what to ask for / give others!

glossier showroom and haul

Hello!

I had the most amazing time in New York, if you haven’t seen my last post, you can read it here… new york travel diary!

While I was in New York, I dragged my family into the glossier showroom, and oh my, it was stunning.

I’m sure you all have heard of glossier before. It is a makeup / skincare brand that focuses on enhancing your natural features instead of hiding them. They are known for their beautiful minimalistic packaging, which I love!! I also think that their products are of great quality.

I thought that I would share some photos of my experience as well as a haul.

* the haul is going to be at the end of this post

I hope you enjoy!

This is the outside of the glossier penthouse. We stood in the line for around fifteen minutes, then took an elevator upstairs.

We got up and walked around, checking out the gorgeous displays.  To be honest, it was quite crowded and hot inside, but that was the only negative part of my trip!

The workers were super helpful and friendly.

There were tables full of testers that you can look at and tryout. If you plan on buying something, you go to an employee and place an order and they bring it out to you! Honestly, it’s such a great system because you don’t have to wait in line.

Screen Shot 2018-10-13 at 10.23.27 AMThe store is just so aesthetically pleasing and pretty to look at. All the displays are stunning full of flowers and pinkness!!

Screen Shot 2018-10-13 at 10.34.49 AMGlossier isn’t relatively cheap, but its also not overly expensive. The products are of great quality and you can get a lot of use out of them.

Now onto the products that I purchased! I decided to add in a few items that I bought a while back, just to show you guys!

When you buy something from glossier, you receive a sample, stickers, and of course, the glossier pouch! I received a sample of the moisturizer, but i am yet to use it.

First of all, can I say LOOK AT THE PACKAGING!! It’s so minimalistic and gorgeous. As for the actual highlighter, it went on quite smoothly. It gives off more of a natural shine, so if you were looking for something blinding, this isn’t the product for you. It’s definitely a product that I will be repurchasing!

I’m a little obsessed with the lip balms from glossier. They just smell too good! I picked this one up in rose, and oh my, it’s amazing. It actually smells like roses! It has a bit of a pinky tint, but it’s not noticeable when it’s on your lips.

 

Screen Shot 2018-10-21 at 4.14.45 PMI picked up the famous lipgloss for my friend while I was in nyc and she loves it! It goes on smoothly and isn’t super sticky like most lip glosses.

 

Screen Shot 2018-10-21 at 4.15.09 PM

Another favourite. The coconut just smells so freaking good!! And of course the packing is beautiful as always. It’s not sticky at all and can easily be applied!

 

Screen Shot 2018-10-21 at 4.16.01 PM

I’ve had this product for a while now and have been using it everyday. I love how easily the blush can be applied. Warning : careful how much you squeeze out, a little goes a long way!

 

Screen Shot 2018-10-21 at 4.15.22 PM

I purchased this in the smallest size, and am probably going to get the larger one because I love it so much! You can apply to damp or dry skin and rinse off. It’s super gentle and has a faint scent of flowers.

This is another product that I’ve had for a while, and I love it! It smells just like cake. My only complaint though is that the the shiny part is starting to wear off. Otherwise, it’s an amazing product!

 

Screen Shot 2018-10-21 at 4.15.43 PM

My sister picked this up from the glossier showroom and she adores it! It smells amazing and has a beautiful red tint.

 

Screen Shot 2018-10-21 at 4.15.53 PM

This is another on of my original three products. I LOVE it, definitely going to repurchase. The colour is lovely, a pretty light pink.

That’s all for today, I hope you enjoyed!

Have you tried ( or wanted to try ) any of glossiers products?

striped pants  –  these have been a huge trend lately, as i haven seen them all over instagram and stores such as brandy melville and urban outfitters. i have a few pairs myself, but i could always add to the collection…

tie up tops  –  i love these tops so much! they are very elegant, but at the same time give me european beach vibes.

plaid pieces  –  i love plaid, so so so much. i have a pair of pants, the same ones as pictured in the furthest right image. they are from h&m and i adore them!

 

screen-shot-2018-06-18-at-3-24-03-pm.png

 

graphic tees  –  as i’m sure you will know, the 80’s are making a comeback, and bringing graphic tees with them! i love graphic tees so much, they can be styled with pretty much everything!

funky sunglasses  –  the sunglasses pictured above are super on trend at the moment, always popping up on instagram and pinterest.

mom jeans  –  i love mom jeans so much. they are so comfortable and stylish! i’m still on the hunt for the perfect pair. i had a great pair that i thrifted, but i ended up turning them into shorts.

 

thank you so much for reading! i really hope you enjoyed! what pieces have you been loving lately?

so this is my backpack, its the black fjallraven kanken in the regular size. and i LOVE it so so so much! it looks pretty small, but it can fit a lot inside and it has many pockets and pouches. i have to wear a uniform at my school, so my backpack is one of the ways i express myself style wise!Screen Shot 2018-08-20 at 2.15.03 PM

so here are the items in my kanken…

 

p e n c i l    c a s e  –  this is pretty self-explanatory, but i have a pencil case with a bunch of pens, markers, pencils, & highlighters!

w a t e r   b o t t l e  –  its really important to stay hydrated during school, so i like having a water bottle in my back pack.

c h a r g e r  –  this is a must have if you are allowed to bring any devices to your school!

l a p t o p  –  at my school we can bring our own laptops or use the schools devices. i just bring my one from home.

h a n d s a n t i z e r  –  another essential because theres lots of germs at school.

s n a c k s  –  i love having a pack of gum and a bag of chips in my backpack incase i get hungry!

h a n d c r e a m   &   l i p b a l m   e t c  –  hygiene products are a must bring to school!

e a r b u d s  –  i sometimes take the bus home from school, so these are a lifesaver!!

i p h o n e  –  my school isn’t very strict about us bringing our phones to school, so bring yours if you’re allowed to.

b o o k s  –  pretty self-explanatory, bring binders, notebooks, etc.

 

thank you so much for reading! don’t forget to read claras post!
