2018 was a blast, it was quite a good year. Every year has its ups as well as downs. I went through a lot of changes, some good, some bad.

School and my interests changed. I realized how to create a healthy balance between education and my social life. I discovered some of my passions; volleyball, art, blogging, and pursued them even further.

One highlight was volleyball. I was part of an amazing team of girls, and we made it so far. At the beginning of the season we were falling apart, losing the majority of our games, but we put in the hard work and effort and it payed off. We placed third in our city, fifth on the island and even went to provincials. It was the first time in history that a volleyball team from my school made it that far.

Every year has its downs, my friend group changed and of course drama came along with that. But everything worked out in the end and I am so happy now. I have the best friends I could ever ask for. They make me feel happy and more like myself. I’m so grateful for them.

But we made it and are entering 2019. And its gonna be a good one.

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.

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!

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!

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!

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

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?
