April and May Empties

It's been a while since my last Empties post, as I thought my Aprils ones were boring and wanted to wait to add them to the May ones. I hope you don't mind and enjoy this BOGO on Empties :)

There it is. April was pretty much boring, as Ididn't have a lot of full size products, and those were toilettries.

SpaSoap Aloe & Chamomile: We have been using this hand soap for a while now, it is a good Dollarama dupe for SoftSoap.

Head & Shoulders Refresh Shampoo: I've been struggling to find a shampoo that I like lately, this one was good, but it is for men, and I'd like something a little more feminine.

Bioré Charcoal Nose Strip: I've never been impressed by the original Bioré strips, but I liked this sample so much that I bought a pack. It is fascinating in a gross way to see the gunk come out of the pores!

Aesop Mandarin Facial Hydrating Cream: I like the smell of this so much! If I'd be able to purchase Aesop easily this would be on my wishlist.

TRESemmé Keratin Smooth 60 Second Treatment Shot: I used this while I still had long hair, and it lasted for about three shampoos. It smells nice, but I would rather use the VO5 Hot Oil thingies, if that still exists.

My total of Empties for April is 10. Can do better!

As for May, I thought I'd do better, but there are a few products I wasn't able to finish on time.

L'Oréal Féria Wild Ombré in 060: Yes, I diyed my hair! I first did it at the salon, but as I wanted an ombré effect and didn't have it I bought this box on clearance at Maxi and did it myself. I'm satisfied of the result. I'm not used with boxed dyes, especially the ones that bleach but I liked this one.

N-Spa Indulgent Hot Butter Fudge Body Polish: This was promising, but I don't know why most sugary products like this one smell like medicine? It was a nice polish though, but the package is not convenient, it lets too much water in when in the shower. On top of that the hinges are annoying.

Bath & Body Works Sugar Plum Dream PocketBac: I like PocketBacs, and I liked this one because it reminded me of the Britney Spears perfume Midnight Fantasy, that I used to have.

EOS Shave Cream: I now sometimes shave my legs. I used not to, as I was using Veet cream and the likes, but sometimes now I need to free the bathroom as I'm not alone. I know a lot of people said they didn't like this shaving cream, but I did. I might be tempted to buy the full size.

A total of 9 Empties, one soap wraps not being pictured.

I hoped to finish more in June, but a week in I don't have a lot to show up for so far!

Oh My, I've never meant to be away from the blog for this long! I do apologize for that!

I did have the Me Time Tag that went live a few days ago, I don't know ho really, as I didn't schedule it, and it was actually already online. It's the second time that happens. Oh well!

As I said in that Tag post, I started a new full time job (but about a month ago!), I work in a hotel as a receptionnnist and barmaid. There is so many little details to remember and because the girl I'm replacing had to leave really quickly I couldn't have a proper training. So it was a busy time! It's still is, but I'm getting there, I make less mistakes and feel more confident about what I do. On top of that, I kept my part time job at the store, so sometimes all I want to do is sleep!

On top of that, my computer is dying on me and I ordered a new one, that I should receive it in a few days. I can't wait, as I've barely opened my computer in the last few weeks as it's just killing me!

There you have it! I hope to be back for real in a few days now.

What have you been up to?

The Me-Time Tag

Hey there! Today I have another tag for you, the Me-Time Tag! Since I started a new full time job last week and continue my part time one, I'm even more protective o my free time. I've always been, but now when I'm off, I'm off!

1. What do you like to watch or read during me-time?
I like to read crime novel or chick lit. Same goes for what I'm watching, in addition to YouTube videos! My favourite YouTubers are Alexfashionbeauty, EnjoyPhoenix, HelloOctober and I Covet Thee.

2. What do you wear during me-time?
My PJs. Here in Quebec we like to call it "mou", which means a soft and slack fabric.
3. What are your favourite me-time beauty products?
4.  Current favourite nail polish? 
I'm always using a different one, but I like Essies and Nails Inc.  

5. What do you eat or drink during me-time?
I like to eat chocolate and drink coffee. Coffee is especially important!
6. Current favourite candle?
I'm in a candle rut at the moment, I'm not really impressed with the ones I have right now, they smell good in the jar but don't really do anything when burning. I used to love the Bath and Body Works one and the Yankee Candles one, but not so much now.

7. Do you ever have outdoor me-time?
Not really, but the other day I went to the beach and it was nice. Might have to do that more often.

8. Would you ever go and watch a film alone?
Yes, I did a few times in fact. There are no cinemas nearby though so I'm not going.
9. Favourite online shop?

10. Anything to add? What else do you do during me-time?
At my current job I have some down time and I either do crosswords or check Instagram!      

Let me know if you do the Tag, I'd like to read it!
