The Little Things

Shrink anything and you will instantly get a few likes just for being so adorbs. (Take Steph, for example. Hahaha! Sorry.)

Mini horses? Frickin cute.
Mini human? Oomgz
Mini cake on sticks? Get into my tummy now.

(Mini Pashli? One day you will be miinnnesss...*edit*...have since bought this bag)

Not only do mini items get points for aesthetic but I've been loving a few miniatures in my beauty stash for pure functionality.

Recovery and Graydon's The Mist

Graydon Clinical Luxury The Mist review

That 10K really took it out of me! I thought I would be able to start up my regular gym schedule again but my right knee still feels  90 years old and there's a persistent ache around my inner left ankle (Can anyone tell me what this might be?). Damn it!  Apparently I can't just bounce back from stupidly long runs. I have no interest in doing one, but it wasn't like it was a half marathon! Body, why do you fail me?

cleansing oil options

Since discovering cleansing oils, they are a must have and you will have a hard time convincing me that they aren't necessary. I don't often try to have multiple bottles open at the same time but here are the current oil cleansers in my shower space.

Essence 3D Shadows (Irresistible Vanilla Latte, Fullmoon Flash, Choco Cupcake)

Essence 3D Shadows Irresistible Vanilla Latte, Fullmoon Flash, Choco Cupcake swatch review

Essence has reformulated their 3D Shadow ($3.99CDN) line to improve blendability and creaminess. I got to explore three of them. Promising excellent 'color dispersion' and high coverage. They can be used wet or dry and come in a range of finishes from metallic to satin.  At this price point, I really hoping to fall in love with these but my feelings are a bit mixed.
