Coming Out Strong | MOTD & Colourpop Eyeshadow First Impression

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

One of my favourite songs on Future’s HNDRXX is his song with The Weeknd, called Coming Out Strong. This MOTD was inspired by that song, in particular by my favourite line in the song that says “They said I couldn’t reach Mars, so I turned to a star”. When I think of turning into a literal star, I think of a lot of glow and brightness, and I thought it would be fun to translate that into a makeup look. I also got a bunch of new Colourpop shadows, so I really wanted to incorporate them into this look. I haven’t done a MOTD in a while, and it was fun to use new products, as well as products I already own, but don’t use on an everyday basis. Kind of challenging, but I am so pleased with how this look turned out. If you’re curious to see how the look turned out, hit that read more!

Get The Perfect Wing – Everytime!

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

I think the most frustrating, yet rewarding part of doing my makeup is creating the perfect wing. Most days, I miraculously get it right on the first try, and other days I’m struggling for ten minutes before I give up and leave the house with janky eyeliner (which I don’t recommend lol NEVER give up on your eyeliner if you can help it). So I’ve compiled a bunch of tips and tricks that I use to help me create my wing the way I like, and maybe it’ll help you too!

Date Night | National Music Centre

Tags

, , , , , ,

Hi everyone! Before I begin, I just wanted to apologize for not posting on Tuesday. I thought that since I am in summer mode, I would have lots of time to dedicate to my blog, but that really hasn’t been the case. I’ve been working more, and when I’m not working, I’ve been spending a lot more quality time with friends and family and enjoying the beautiful weather we’ve been having lately! I’m sure you all understand though.

Anyways, my boyfriend and I finally got the chance to visit the National Music Centre in Studio Bell (or is it the other way around? Idk. This always confused me…). The last time we were planning on going, we didn’t check ahead, and found out it was closed after paying for parking. Bummer. CJ is a DJ (please don’t make jokes and call him CJ The DJ. LOL. He hears it all the time. It’s not funny anymore.) and absolutely LOVES anything and everything to do with music, so he had the time of his life. Even if you aren’t a music aficionado, like myself, I feel like this is the kind of place where everyone can have fun and learn something. I also just really love museums, so I loved being here. I included some pics under the read more if you’re interested in seeing what we got up to. As always, thank you for reading, and I hope to see yall soon!

ALBOE TURNS 1!

Tags

, ,

WOW! My blog is already a year old! Can you believe it? I can’t. When I think back to a year ago, I honestly never would have thought ALBOE would be where it is today. I’m not saying that I’m huge and successful by any means, but I never would have imagined that I would be getting constant positive feedback from a lot of people, that I would have people who always keep up to date with my posts and that I would be able to write posts on behalf of other brands!

Tags

, , , , ,

Happy May everyone! I feel like I haven’t done a review in a while, but I’m back with something new. It’s the Hydra-Essentiel silky cream from Clarins. As I always emphasize in all my skincare posts, the Aveeno daily moisturizing lotion is my ride or die when it comes to moisturizers, so I never really venture out and try new ones. However, I was very curious as to how I would like this one. Click the read more to see if I gave it the Brittney Stamp of Approval!

Special thanks to Influenster and Clarins for sending me a deluxe sample of this moisturizer to try for free!

Hey everyone! Another month over means another month of favourites. This one is short and sweet, but everything on this list of favourites have been things I’ve used practically non stop this entire month. I hope April has treated you as well as it has treated me!

Also, like I mentioned before, my blogs turns one year old in exactly a week (which is so crazy to me, it really doesn’t feel like it’s been that long). I’m doing something special and fun that I’ve been planning for a couple weeks now, so stay tuned. I really hope you guys think it’s cool because if not, I’ll be pretty sad LOL.

Hey everyone! I’m sorry I haven’t posted at all last week, it has been a busy week and I didn’t have a lot of time to devote to writing posts. Like I’ve said before, I want to stick to my Tuesday & Friday posting schedule as much as possible, but if I don’t like the posts I’ve come up with, or if I don’t have enough time to devote to posting, I won’t. I’m sure you all understand! Quality over quantity, right? Rest assured, I will be back to my normal posting days starting now. Anyways, I just wanted to come on here and tell you guys about a few things I’ve been up to while I’ve been away.

Date Night | Clear Float Spa

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

On Wednesday, my boyfriend and I had the opportunity to try floating! This has been something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time, ever since my best friend did a float and raved about it to me last summer. CJ and I are constantly entering Instagram contests for activities to do around Calgary, and he just so happened to win us two floats (shout outs to @datenightyyc!) at Clear Float Spa. Click the read more to find out more about my experience! Hopefully this answers any questions you might have if you’ve ever wanted to float yourself.

Freedom! | My 2017 Summer Bucket List

Tags

, ,

It’s my last day of school tomorrow, and since I’m not taking any spring courses, that means I have a four month long summer. Wow. And then that means I only have one more year until the long awaited, much anticipated graduation. Technically my semester isn’t quite over, since I still have finals to write, but I’m already thinking of what I want to do over the course of four months. For the past two years, I’ve been making Summer Bucket Lists on my Tumblr (2015’s list is here and 2016’s list is here), but I figured that for this year, and all other years I have this blog, I’ll just start posting them here! And that way, whenever I check something off the bucket list, y’all will be the first to see it. Also, if anything pops into my head of other activities I want to do, I’ll probably update this post, so check back often if you’re interested!

Also while reading through the things I want to do, a lot of them are activities that I can do over time, so I can’t really check it off and be done with it. If that makes sense… But I’ll still be updating my blog with my progress on these things here and there!

Brunch at The Bro’kin Yolk

Tags

, ,

I am a huge breakfast fan. I love breakfast foods. Something about eating a good meal for breakfast seems to set up the rest of my day and makes it feel like I will have a great day. This is pretty hypocritical of me to say though, because on the regular, I never have time to make a nice breakfast and sit down to enjoy it. I’m usually rushing around the kitchen, quickly making coffee, and toasting some bread while trying to also finish a yogurt.

Anyways. My friends and I went to get breakfast yesterday (well technically it was brunch because we went at like 11:30, but it was my first meal of the day, therefore I’m calling it breakfast) at one of my favourite breakfast/brunch spots. It’s called The Bro’kin Yolk, and it’s fairly new restaurant that sells amazing food. But I could be biased since they have one of my all time favourite breakfast meals here… They were also featured on You Gotta Eat Here on The Food Network, which I think is so cool! You can watch it here if you’re interested. Thankfully, it’s a less than ten minute drive from my house. But this place is quite popular and whenever I go, I end up waiting for a bit before we get seated because it’s always busy (my fault though, because we never call ahead of time to put our name on the waitlist). The wait is always so worth it though.
