I don’t have a clever title for this, but this post is about me.

I have been thinking a lot (as I do) this past week. The main question I kept asking myself was “What do you want?” I feel as if I’m in this stage of being stuck in a cycle of back and forth. I will have moments where I feel so inspired and have a rush of motivation to just go out and do stuff, and then there’s moments where I’ll just be sitting doing pretty much nothing, failing to recognize that it doesn’t get me anywhere.

May Favourites

Another month has flown by! May was a really good month for me. ALBOE turned 1, I got the chance to spend a lot of quality time with people and through keeping up with consistent workouts, I’ve been feeling myself getting stronger and seeing those baby gainzzzz come in! Of course, I’m still beginning, but wow, I’ve been feeling really good lately. I think it also has a lot to do with the nice weather. But anyways. Here are all the things I’ve been loving this month. You’ll notice this list is pretty random and all over the place tbh, but I think that makes monthly favourites posts really fun.

Brittney’s BuJo | May 2017

Tags

, , , , , ,

Hey hey! It’s that time of the month again. Hehe. Here’s a sneak peek into my bullet journal for the month of May. Still trying to keep it minimal, so like last month, I used one colour and a black pen. I finally got Pilot pens, so this month looks so crisp and nice. Such basic words used to describe how pleased I am, but you’ll understand once you see it. If you want to see the layouts I created from past months, then click here!

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!

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.
