1. Benefit Instant Comeback Facial Serumย (found here)

Since I have extremely dry skin and it's winter time, I use about a million products to stay bright and moisturized. The Instant Comeback Facial Serum is one of the products I've incorporated into my facial regime for several months now. Dry skin tends to look dull and feel tight especially after a shower or facial wash. So, I started using this every night after my shower and every morning after I wash my face. It really moisturizes without being greasy and prevents the skin from being dull. I definitely have to go pick up another full bottle.

2. AG Farrah Skinny Jeansย (found here)

The Holt Renfrew in Ottawa was having a clear-out sale before closing down so of course Nancy and I had to go check it out. I was happy to find a pair of AG jeans in my size at 40% off. What a steal! These jeans are so lovely and soft, the perfect dark wash to go on any outfit.

3. Take Care Albumย (found here)

It's taken me a couple years but I've finally gotten into Drake. As someone who is not a massive Hip-Hop fan I really love this album and have spent many nights listening to it. It has a great combination of rap along with soothing vocals and mid-tempo beats.

1. Urban Decay Vice 3 Eye Shadow Palette (found here)

I picked up this palette at Sephora in December and it's been my go-to palette since! Although the shadows are a touch crumbly, the colours are gorgeous and super versatile. I've used it to create holiday looks, my best friend's makeup for her graduation photoshoot, everyday looks... the possibilities are endless!

2. Fresh Rose Hydrating Eye Gel Cream (found here)

For my 22nd birthday, the bestie bought me this Fresh eye cream. She's currently obsessed with the Fresh lines and I can definitely see why. This cream is light, super hydrating (a little goes a long way!), and smells SO good. I've been using this religiously for the past month and I see an improvement to my skin already. It's more supple, moisturized, and no longer do the bag-crease thingy (er... monolid problems).

3. All Saints Belvedere Leather Jacket (no longer available)

After my holiday purchases, I was so ready to go on a shopping ban-- until Bolu informed me that All Saints were having their end of the year sale. This jacket was 50% off and I have absolutely zero regrets. The leather is supple and the cut is very flattering. Okay, now I am on a shopping ban (sort of... I bought new boots at the Bay sale last night).


~Till next time,

Bolu & Nancy
