I’m still continually finding new books in episodes of The Simpsons! Here are more of my favourites:
I bought this Sephora Nude Lip favourites kit recently to have lip colours that are more appropriate for everyday/work. I love funky colours, but I think people would think I was weird.
These all came in an adorable shaped box:
– Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Honeycomb (beige nude)
– Buxom Full-On Lip Cream in White Russian (nude)
– Estée Edit The Barest Contour lip Liner in 05 In The Buff (satin nude)
– Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Crème in 246 Slow Burn (creamy nude rose)
– Too Faced Cosmetics Melted Matte Liquified Matte Long Wear Lipstick in Queen B (matte soft mauve)
– Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in 1993 Comfort Matte (medium brown)
A few of these are too light and make me look like I’m dying. However, they make a great base colour for using bold eyeshadows as lip sticks (ex purples, greens etc).
My current addiction is lip colours. I used to be afraid of using them up, but now I have so many there’s no excused NOT to use them!
This weekend I’ll be shooting Wavelength 17! If you’re in Toronto come check it out. I guarantee you’ll discover a cool new band you’ve never heard of before.
I can’t believe it’s been 7 years since the lonely Valentine’s Day where I launched Ride the Tempo. I am super proud of it today. I’ve met some of my best friends because of the blog and had the craziest experiences.
I can’t believe once looked like this:
Then it looked like this:
Then I made it white for some reason:
Finally in 2015, the site became the modern look it looks today. The site is forever changing, but I’m happy that it has evolved so much over time.
We don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day but we definitely appreciate the day after. The chocolate discounts are worth it and it’s way more fun to see what we can splurge on together!
Our philosophy is that we should appreciate our time together all year and have fun fancy dinners that aren’t forced by an overpriced day! Also, I don’t really care for flowers.
My birthday is coming up so couldn’t resist ordering some stuff from Sephora so I could get my birthday gift. I thought this year’s choices were pretty cool. I chose the Tarte set that came with a nude lip gloss and blush.
I compulsively bought this Guerlain mascara because the wand was cute.
I feel like I can transform into a Sailor Scout if I yelled “Mercury Star Power!” or something.
The wand itself has a dress-like shape. It makes it easy to get every lash, including the bottom ones. I like that the mascara was not clumpy, it’s super light so I forget I’m wearing it. It’s good for volume and lengthening. It holds my curl too (but I do use a lash curler). It also has a weirdly pleasant smell, which I haven’t really noticed before in a mascara. I would definitely buy this again!
Currently busy watching the Grammy Awards and live tweeting it for work. What are your favourite moments so far? Who did you want to win?
I’ve always walked past Latin World and seen it packed full of people who’ve probably been going there for years. It’s like a secret local spot that hasn’t been taken over by hipsters. Inside it is like a grocery store that also serves food.
For $10, I got 4 fish tacos. They also have like a $1 taco special every day but I was in the mood for fish. But man, if I was feeling particularly hungry and poor one day $1 is a steal! There was a lot of flavour in every bite and enough to feel full.
They also gave us complimentary nachos with a variety of hot sauces that were quite addictive.
To drink, they had sodas from Mexico, which means they are sweetened with cane sugar rather than high fructose corn syrup. It tastes better than regular Fanta because it doesn’t leave you with a sharp aftertaste.
Latin World is so close to my place that I can’t believe I waited this long to go there. I’ll definitely take advantage of those $1 deals frequently!
In case you need a smile. Here’s a photo of Teddy. The winter has been super grey but who can resist smiling at a dog?
