Dollarama Review: Hot Designs Nail Polish

dscf0286 I thought it was a steal to find these for $3 at Dollarama. I usually see them at the Walmart compulsive buy aisle for like $9.

They are like nail polish markers. Each was two sided.

It also came with cleaning pins that look like they could double as the thing that helps remove a sim card from your iPhone.

The sad part is when I opened it, a lot of the pen end was jabbed inside, rendering it semi useless. It’s supposed to be like a fine point pen sized thing, but since it got sucked inwards it can no longer handle details like it’s supposed to.

Boo, what a dud. I’m glad I didn’t pay $9 for this and could potentially still use it as regular polish.

Brunch @ Takht-e Tavoos

I recently went for a Persian brunch at Tavoos, owned by the same people as The Pomegranate. Persian Chai was served to us in a beautiful pot.

To start, we had Zeitoon Parvardeh: green olives marinated in a sauce of walnuts, pomegranate molasses, garlic and mint. This was served with a light Persian flat bread. This is a must for olive fans and was super addictive.

My friend Karol had the Serious Lunch (pictured). It was a Dizi Sangi: a stew with lamb shank, lamb rib, chickpeas, white beans, potato, onion and tomato cooked for four hours. The soup part is served separately and there is a stick to pound the meat and beans into a purée.

For some reason, I forgot to take a picture of my food but I had the weekend special called Bandari which was spicy halal sausages sautéed in a tomato garlic purée, mixed with potatoes. Atop sat two sunnyside up eggs with creamy feta cheese and marinated olives on the side. It was definitely classic brunch with a twist!

We loved every part of our meal as it was flavourful and the portions were generous. I think Persian food is becoming some of my favourite cuisines!

NYX Suede Cream Lip Vault

My sister bought me the Liquid Suede Vault from NYX for my birthday. It features 24 liquid lipsticks in tons of fun colours. There’s one that is a bit more tame, but I was looking for fun colours I didn’t already have.

Here’s the swatch test! They appear super bright and vivid just like the bottle. It also took a bit of washing to get these off my arm, so they are definitely long wearing.

I wore a vibrant red to a wedding over the weekend and it lasted through coffee and a meal before needing to replay a little bit. I love the purples and I can’t wait to find an excuse to wear it!

Coffee Lids

I don’t know why but every time I order a coffee and put on a lid, the coffee would explode everywhere. 

It doesn’t matter where it is. Maybe I walk weird or something.

I Turned 29 Today!

My week was already exciting enough, but I also turned 29 today! On both Facebook and Twitter, I asked people to send me dog and or Simpsons gifs instead of generic messages.

I had tons on Facebook! It made my day.

Now I will accept them here in the comments too if you have any!

I’m Engaged!

This was super unexpected and I’m still in slight shock but Nash put a ring on it! I also used this chance to test out Instagram’s new gallery feature.

Ahhhhh this happened
