Your moose are now safe! Whereas the original Angel perfume can be experienced by all and by far, there now is the option of Angel Muse* ($78CDN, 30ml) a more intimate interpretation of the Angel* scent.

Not all compliments are the same. Sure, if I know I'm looking good, and you recognize it, that's awesome. But if I'm just feeling regular and David gives me a compliment, then something is special. The best compliments are from random strangers or from friends who don't really care about beauty. If they notice, and they take the time to tell you...well, I think those compliments are top tier. Here is a round up of products I received such compliments from.

This is an empty worth talking about. The Kiehl's Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution* ($59CDN, 30ml) has done a bang up job of lighting some of my moles and dark spots. I didn't actually believe it would work (I basically bumble around with brightening products and hope for the best.)

There's a new matte lipstick in town and its coming from NYX. I'm already a fan of the original matte lipsticks so I'm pretty interested to see how these Velvet Mattes* (~$9CDN) differ. These are supposed to be highly pigmented, to glide on and never dry out your lips.

Celebrity collaborations or inspired collections aren't always interesting to me. Brands catapult their name by aligning themselves with super stars and sometimes the chosen person doesn't always add value. They may be a fashion icon but that doesn't neccessarily translate into beauty clout. I saw the Estee Edits line as something like this. Estee Lauder has done a great rebranding job but this inspired and "in the moment" launch seemed a little unnecessary as a separate line.

I'm loving the shape of the new Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips* lipsticks. She cuts her lipstick bullets in such interesting ways and that flat angled top is really working out for me. More than that, the newest launch from the brand is helping raise awareness for the Women for Women Charity!

A bottle of conditioner and a bottle of shampoo tend to be around the same volume. They also tend to be about the same price. But I never, never use them at the same rate! Does anyone?

Currently Eating: Homemade Pasta with Blue Cheese Cream Sauce and Mushrooms, Caramelized Onions, Dates and Bacon
One benefit of having David's brother visit is the dinners Mark cooks for us. David always looks forward to Mark's food and this time, when they visited, Mark made us pasta from scratch with blue cheese cream sauce and mushrooms, caramelized onions, dates and bacon. I gave a helping hand where I could.

These last months, I've been focusing on developing my fitness.
I've been using ClassPass to try new exercise activities and to get some routine back into my exercise schedule. I was doing Kayla Itsine's BBG but wanted something lengthier, more intense and more social. ClassPass has been a good way to bridge the gap from here until the new Equinox opens in Vancouver. I AM SO PUMPED for its opening and have already signed up for membership. Bring on the battle ropes and crazy running classes.

Eau de Toilettes, I wish they would last longer. But when I remember I have to go to the gym at the end of the day, I realize there is a place for lighter interpretations of Eau de Parfums. The four latest re-releases from Marc Jacobs are gender neutral splashes of scents that are perfect for just that purpose. And not to mention, great for summer. The Splash* ($65CDN, 100ml) line gives quick burst of fresh light scent that are perfect for the season and my current routine.

Since the Kat von D's Mi Vida Loca Remix palette and Metal Shadows, I've been paying more attention to her eyeshadows. The latest are the Shade and Light palettes ($34CDN, 4 shades each) (Instagram teasers are coming out for a Serpentina palette and Too Faced collabs but I have no idea when those will launch) and I was instantly drawn to Sage* and Plum*.
