Goodbye, 2018! | My 1SE

Wow. Another year has passed. As I reflect on everything that has happened in 2018, the one word I could use to sum it all up isย grateful. I’ve learned so much about myself, and I am so proud of all the things I’ve accomplished this year. I really tried to push myself out of my comfort zone, and challenged myself to be accountable to myself. I felt like I went through a big identity crisis (lowkey still in the middle of it, but I’m handling things better now), but I know that I’m getting closer and closer to the person that I want to become.

This year really showed me just how amazing the people in my life are. I have been so blessed to have met amazing friends, create new bonds, and strengthen current relationships. We have made countless memories in this year alone!

I hope everyone had a blessed 2018, and if you didn’t, just know that you are in control of your life, and you have the power to turn it all around (I genuinely feel like I’m a living testament of this). I’m grateful to have made it into 2019, and I’m thankful for all you for supporting me.

 

(ALSO I still have to finish editing Vlogmas Week 3, but I promise it’s coming! I also shot a bonus vlog for funzies that you can all look forward to!)

Vlogmas 2018 | Week 3

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope every one got to spend lots of time with loved ones. I know my Christmas spirit hasn’t been at an all time high this year, but once I got to do all my secret santa exchanges, and spend time with my friends and family, I started to feel it LOL (and you will see all that fun stuff in next week’s vlog).

Vlogmas 2018 | Week 2

Hey everyone! After a few more technical difficulties, I finally got week 2 of Vlogmas up. It’s a Christmas miracle! Watch the video below to catch up on what I’ve been up to this past week ๐Ÿ™‚

ย 

Today’s vlog features some products from the Covergirl Exhibitionist line that Influenster and Covergirl sent me for free! I’ve been loving using these products, because, for me, this is all the makeup that I need to put on my face and be ready to head out the door. I talk about them in depth in the vlog, but here’s a quick rundown of all the products and my thoughts about them at a glance:

Covergirl Exhibitionist Mascara:

  • Loving how it lengthens and separates my lashes
  • Gives me decent volume
  • My only problem is that this mascara isn’t waterproof, which is the number one thing I look for in a mascara (to clarify: the mascara does come in a waterproof formula, I was just sent the one that isn’t waterproof)

Covergirl Get In Line liquid eyeliner:

  • SUPER fine tip – creating a sharp wing is super easy and achievable
  • I love that it dries down matte. Definitely a look.
  • Again, this eyeliner isn’t waterproof, so some of the product does fade off by the end of the day (especially near the corner of my eye)

Covergirl Exhibitionist Cream Lipstick – Coffee Crave

  • The perfect “your lips but better” shade for me
  • Comfortable wear all day, some touching up required (depending on how much you eat, drink or talk throughout the day LOL)

If you try out any of these products, let me know! I would love to know how you liked (or didn’t like) them ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Vlogmas 2018 | Week 1

SHE BAAACK!! I’m finally back to doing Vlogmas, and I forgot how fun it is! Hope December has been treating you all well. I’m equal parts stressed and excited. Anyways, there really isn’t much else to say, so if you want to watch the first week of Vlogmas, you can watch it below ๐Ÿ™‚

๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ Spicy Noodle Boyfriend Tag ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Hey everyone! My boyfriend and I have been wanting to do the boyfriend tag and the spicy noodle challenge for quite some time now, so we figured why not just combine the two? I had a lot of fun filming this, minus the fact that my mouth was truuuly on fire. I also thought this would be a nice way for all my readers to get an idea of who my boyfriend is, since I talk about him all the time anyways.

So if you have time to sit and watch this funny lil vid, as well as get a little sneak peek into mine and CJ’s relationship, the video is below!

2017 In Review – My 1SE

Happy new year everyone! Wow. Can you believe it? We made it through another rotation around the sun. It couldn’t have come soon enough, if you ask me. I look back at the year and it made me realize just how fast it has passed, and it makes me think about everything that I have learned and experienced in the past 365 days. It also makes me very glad that I took on a 1 Second Everyday and a Project 365, because I’m always going to be able to remember this year of my life.

This wasn’t necessarily the easiest year of my life (in fact, I would say that 2017 is up there on the list of difficult, trying years), but if there was one thing I could take away from it, was that I learnedย a lot. This year tested me in so many ways, and some times I thought I would burst from the stress and anxiety I felt during the difficult times of this year. But I made it out alive, and I’m still trying to learn how to find the balance in my life. And if there is one thing I can take away from 2017 is the amount of lessons I’ve learned – about myself and about life in general.

I hope this year treated you well, and if it didn’t then, good news! It’s a new year haha. May 2018 be everything you want it to be and more. Remember that you cannot control what happens to you, but you can control how you react to it!

ALittleBrittofSummer: Mexico 2017!!

This trip was hands down the highlight of my summer. This was my first time in Mexico, and it was a great first experience. Everyone was so friendly, the food was amazing and authentic,ย the weather was beautiful, we were near the beach and Puerto Vallarta (and the surrounding area) itself was so beautiful. Our resort was so nice, clean and there was so much to do when we weren’t out on one of our excursions. I would 100% come back here again. If anyone is planning on going to Mexico anytime soon, definitely consider visiting Puerto Vallarta, and look up Grand Fiesta Americana Resort!

To be honest though, I’m surprised this vlog is as short as it is, because I felt like we didย so much on our trip. Our days pretty much consisted of eating, drinking, swimming and napping, when we weren’t on excursions and it felt so nice to chill! If you’re interested in seeing what we got up too, then definitely check out my vlog ๐Ÿ™‚

This also marks the end of my ALittleBrittOfSummerSeries! Thank you to everyone who kept up with it, and I’ll see you guys back again for Vlogmas!

ALittleBrittOfSummer: Vlog 7!

Hey hey heyyyy! This vlog consists of a bunch of things I’ve been doing in August. It’s not that eventful because I started my new job this month, so I haven’t been able to go and do a lot. But I’m glad I’ve still been able to vlog a little bit. I wanted to get this up before I leave to Mexico (tomorrow!! aahhh!!) because I want my Mexico vlog to be it’s own thing.

With the summer coming to an end, I just wanted to thank everyone who watches these regularly! I have a lot of fun vlogging and editing, and it’s pretty rewarding to know that others enjoy what I do.ย So anyways, enjoy!

ALittleBrittOfSummer: BRUNO MARS EDITION!

Hey again! This particular vlog is dedicated to my short weekend trip to Edmonton at the end of July for the Bruno Mars concert. This was literally one of the best concerts I’veย ever been to. And I’ve been to a lot of concerts you guys.ย Only two more vlogs until my summer series ends y’all. I’m kinda sad… But anyways, hope you enjoy!

๐Ÿ’–, B

ALittleBrittOfSummer: Vlog 5!

Can you believe it!! We are in August and summer is already over! Which is why I’m very glad that I’ve been vlogging, so I can look back and remember all the fun things I did this summer. I like to make vlogs for people to watch and enjoy, but I mostly do them for the sole purpose of looking back on some fun memories.

Anyways, here is episode 5 of my summer series. It’s kind of a concert heavy vlog, so you can skip over those parts if that isn’t your thing!

ALittleBrittOfSummer: Vlog 4!

Back with another video in my summer vlog series! I know I promised a June favourites post, but I feel like it’s too late now to post, since we’re in the middle of July. I have been quite occupied with other things, and my blog has taken the biggest hit. So I’m just gonna go with the flow and write when I can. Also I had this up and unlisted on Youtube for a couple of days now, but I haven’t had much time to sit down and post. Anyways, here is the latest vlog! Enjoy!

ALittleBrittOfSummer: Vlog 3!

Happy Canada Day my fellow canadians!! Just here to bring you all another vlog that you can watch below if you want ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you all have an amazing Canada Day!

It’s Canada’s 150th birthday, my cat Diesel’s 12th birthday and me and CJ’s 2 year anniversary!!
