Weekend Update: Happy Spring and Easter Weekend

Happy Spring Friends!

It is officially spring, although it is still quite chilly where I am (Thanks, never-ending Canadian winters!) After a brutal winter, I’m craving bright colours, light and flowy spring outfits and a whole lot of sunshine. This past weekend was Easter and I thought I would share some of the fun events and the seasonal inspiration I used for this festive spring weekend.

My favourite place for a quick burst of colour is the nails. This weekend I opted for Essie’s Sittin’ Pretty. I have worn this shade numerous times since I featured it in my L’Oreal Haul a few weeks back. The light purple shade is bright, perfect for spring and gets tons of compliments.

The beauty lover’s equivalent to spring cleaning? A spring haircut! I have always felt comfortable and confident with long, layered hair. I decided a healthy cut was needed as my dry and winter damaged hair was weighing me down. I took the not so deep plunge and opted for the long bob and popped in a few mocha brown highlights for  dimension. This cut has been showing up everywhere recently! It feels so great, is super low maintenance and I think it gives me a fun new look to play with this summer.

Nothing gets me more excited than cute baked goods. While scouring Pinterest, I stumbled across a recipe for these cute Easter Egg Cake Pops and I had to try them out. Aside from forming the batter into the shape of an egg, these cuties follow the standard instructions for regular cake pops. It’s super fun to decorate them with tons of spring colour sprinkles to make unique patterns. Be warned these cuties took a lot of time and I nearly threw in the towel so pack your patience when trying them out!

Weekend Update: L’Oreal Spring Warehouse Sale

I love a good sale. My ears perk up when I hear a sale is on. I get that excited little flutter in my tummy about the prospect of a good deal. Am I the only one that lives for the shopping adrenaline rush?

Anyway, this past weekend I was lucky enough to get entry tickets to the L’Oreal spring warehouse sale. It advertised products from brands like Essie, L’Oreal, Maybelline and Garnier at a discounted price. I have never been to an event like this before so I was super excited to see what was on offer. So early Saturday Morning with Tim Hortons in hand, my darling Mother and I donned our shopping faces and headed out to the warehouse. We arrived just before noon and as it was still relatively quiet, we walked right in with ample time to browse before the place really began to fill up.

The product deals were great and there was an amazing selection of make-up, hair care, perfumes and skincare. This was the second week that the sale was on and I did find that there were limited shades of foundation and concealer products. I was disappointed as I wanted to get my hands on another Maybelline Age Rewind Eraser Concealer. Perhaps they were the quickest to sell out.

Overall the sale was great. I purchased both familiar products and new products to try. Unfortunately I couldn’t get any pictures from the sale as it was quite busy and, in all honesty, I was in the shopping zone. Probably my ideal way to spend a Saturday afternoon! I was even a tad bit sad once it was all over.

Stay tuned for possible reviews on some of the products I purchased!
