This Is Not A Toy

This Is Not A Toy: The Dunny Wall

DavidsTea Frequent Steeper!

Yikes. It’s been a while… hello, blogosphere!

Life has been pretty busy lately and as much as I would’ve loved to update my blog periodically [heck, even sporadically], I unfortunately haven’t had much spare time lately to do so. I have a few backlogged events and ideas that I’ve been wanting to post about, so as soon as I get a chance to write up a storm I’ll share those with you! I hope everyone has been doing well

Mini Toronto IMATS 2013 Haul

preencess_IMATShaul02

Is this a long overdue post or what? The holiday season is always super busy! I finally found some time to write about my small IMATS haul from when I attended the trade show this past November. I think I did a fairly good job sticking to my budget and did not give in to any impulse buys [ok, maybe just one]. I picked up some of my essentials as well as a few products I wanted to try out. My top three things that I wanted to get at the show were MUFE products, a pair of Velour Lashes and an OCC Lip Tar.

So I went back to Sephora the day after to grab some last-minute things before the VIB sale ended.

My IMATS Toronto 2013 Experience

IMATS Toronto!

Makeup mischief, managed!

This past weekend, I was able to attend IMATS Toronto 2013 with two of my girl friends for the first time. I’ve heard about IMATS before mostly via YouTube or beauty blogs and ended up researching earlier on this year about the one taking place in Toronto. Before the show, I read previous experiences from a few bloggers to get an idea of the exhibitors and the discounts as well as how busy it can get. I also tried to make a list of things I wanted to get so that I stay on budget… which I managed to stick to! What a miracle.
