So I find myself in the position where I have no backup articles to post and I haven't taken pictures in a while. Instead of forcing a robotic entry, ABZ is going to take a long needed break from its usual schedule of M,W,S.
For transparency, I'm not entirely sure when we'll be back up and running. I'm focusing on a few things aside from beauty right now. But the blog won't be too away for too long since there are some items I am excited to share. Look for new posts in, oh let's say...three weeks (but that's not a guarantee).
Anyways, until then!

I had hoped that the Mr Burberry Eau de Toilette* ($100CDN, 3.3oz) would be wearable for a female but nope. Such a shame since the bottle is beautiful and the grey tones look so polished on my dresser. Its doubly unfortunate that David isn't a fan of fragrances because this is one I'd love for him to wear.

I don't always read the press information before I start using a product. I end up using things incorrectly, being confused about why something isn't working, having to go back anyways to read the info. It's my own fault. I concede my now and then failings to read instructions.

I posted the above photo on my Instagram because its purple. I love purple. Sometimes I'm surprised by how much I love purple. When I see my purple moleskin notebook, the fact that I often write in purple pen, my purple jackets and other clothing...its thankful that I've caught myself early or I'll be mistaken for a grape at my next press event. Purple...my interpretation of cat lady status. Though I've checked myself, its hard not to agree that Dior's Rouge Dior Lipstick in Superstitious Matte* ($43CDN) is my kind of shade.

The annual Aritiza warehouse sale, a special event that most Vancouverite women and their mothers will flock to each fall. Prices under 50% call out and lure shoppers through the doors. The aisles and aisles of disorganized clothing keep girls trapped until they surface again 5 hours later, parched, hungry, and poorer. Remember to tell your family where you went because while you thought you'd just "take a look", you were never more wrong.

It is now increasingly rare that a product will jump out as a "must-get-now". Items come in the mail and I have the fortune of trying them out before ads appear to give me that "have-to-buy-it" feeling. A lipstick or a blush can still earn OOOOs from my lips but things in my space makes me less inclined to drop money for even more things. When I saw the Etude House Juice Bar Palette though, I had to have it.

One click and the hope of a productive day decays as my brain glazes over from rabbit hole after rabbit hole of internet searches. An idea grow vines in my head, until I can satisfy myself that I have read everything I can about it. These are the completely random ideas that have been bursting through the fog of my day-to-day.

I only ever multi-mask and now I can multi-mask all within one brand, Vichy*. The french drugstore brand has launched three mineral infused mask options (each $34CDN, 75ml). If you're a multi-masker like me, that's 7 different masking permutations.

I never found myself falling all over 'bad boys'. Maybe I was too sensible but the academics had more appeal than the dropouts. Nothing wrong with a wanting a bad boy now and then though, someone a little dangerous, a little sexy, and you might find that your latest bad boy wears Azzaro's Wanted Eau de Toilette* ($92CDN, 100ml) as their signature scent.
