Five Favourites AND a Winner...

Yesterday afternoon my sister and I road tripped across the border to Minot, ND to get some last minute items for our soon to be sister in laws stagette this weekend. We didn't get there until 3:00 US time so it was quickly in and out of all the stores to get everything we needed. There were also a few pit stops to buy some things that weren't on our lists (never fails). My budget for this month was completely blown before it even began but I rationalize it as buying myself birthday gifts to make myself feel better about the purchases

Five Favourites 

1| While in Brandon, MB almost two weeks ago for bridesmaid dress fittings I nabbed this Kate Spade planner at Coles. I love that it is a simple planner - I don't need anything extravagant - and I love the design, especially the back. Flamingos are my favourite. I kind of can't wait until August so I can start using it! 

2| We had to stop at Bath and Body Works for Toni to grab some hand soaps for her work and I couldn't resist the allure of the 3 wick candles for only $10! The Pink Apple Punch is the perfect summer scent!

3| I've been wanting the Naked 2 Basics palette for a long time now and I can now finally call it mine. I have the Naked2 and 3 full palettes but wanted the Basics palette for when I'm travelling since the larger palettes don't fit in my makeup bag.. I hadn't intended on stopping at Sephora in JCPENNEY until my Mama messaged me asking to grab her foundation so I can blame this purchase on her...

4| I LOVE giving and receiving gifts (who doesn't?!) - I got these Nars lip pencils as my birthday gift and can't wait to try them out in Vegas!

5| This was another purchase from the day of shopping in Brandon. I got it at Winners and when I first saw it on the shelf I didn't even realize it was Kate Spade - I just loved the look of it and all the colours. Once I realized it was Kate Spade I absolutely had to get it. I'm going through a bit of a Kade Spade obsession right now - if we make it to the outlets in Vegas I'm sure I'll add another piece to my collection
