Jean-Coutu and Winners purchases + Mario Galaxy 2 + FOTN + OOTN + HOTN

Friday, I went to Jean Coutu to grab my pills, and, of course, I had to quickly browse the makeup aisle. I found those two mascaras on sale (both were around $2 off):

 Rimmel LYCRA Lash Extender in Black 001

Rimmel LashMaxxx in Exterme Black 003

My boyfriend bought me a box of Vector (because I always eat a bowl of those at his place) and... Mario Galaxy 2!

I spent 5 hours straight playing this game on Sunday LOL.

I loved Mario Galaxy 1, but it was to my boyfriend and his brothers and they decided to sell it for another game before I could finish it )= I'm already at World 3 in Mario Galaxy 2, and the feature I like the most is Yoshi, of course! I also love the fact that you can play with a friend who will be a Luma who follow Mario (you can't control her) and who can immobilize ennemies and even eliminate them. The Luma can also grab coins and star pieces. Sometimes, you can even play as Luigi! This game also appear easier than the first one so far, but it's a lot of fun!

Friday, my friend Stéphanie held a party in her house. My boyfriend suggested it would be cool to make it a cocktail night, so every one attending had to bring a liquor so we could make lots of cocktails. It was fun, but I think I prefer to stick to beer (cocktails tend to be too sugary). Here's my FOTN, OOTN and HOTN:

Annabelle Zebra Bronzing Powder - Haute Gold
Marcelle Minerals Powder Blush in Natural Glow
Joe Fresh Duo Concealer - Light
Annabelle Satellite Pearl Powder - Celestial Pearl 

Maybelline Great Lash Clear Mascara (used as eyebrow gel) 
L'Oréal ColorAppeal Trio Pro Hazel Eyes - Honey Brown
Maybelline Great Lash Blackest Black Curved Brush Mascara - Blackest Black

Vaseline (my lips always seem to be dry and irritated!)

cardigan: Stitches
white cami: Stitches
black cami: Simons
shorts: Stitches (old jeans I cut into shorts)
socks: Ardène

 I like to messily curl my hair with my flatiron to give it some volume when I go out.

Here are some randoms pictures of the party:

Oh yeah, one sad thing, though...

Sara accidentaly broke a wing of my ring (blame it on the alcohol!). I will try to fix it, but I'm not sure if it will do )=

Sunday, I went to Winners because the boyfriend needed some shorts. I didn't really need something, but as we were heading to the fitting room, I spotted a rack filled with pretty little prom dresses. I couldn't help but take a quick look (I needed a dress to attend my friend's wedding in August, after all!) and a super cute yellow dress catched my attention. At $24.99, it was such a bargain, so I bought it. Here it is:

It has cute ribbons in the back that you can tie in a bow, but I wasn't able to do so without help, so I didn't took a picture of the back of the dress. The back is made of stretch material, so I don't even have to were a bra (but I will LOL). There's also a zipper in the back.

I was thinking about getting this dress from H&M for the wedding:

But when I saw the one from Winners at $24.99 and exactly my size, I couldn't pass by!

I also spotted this super sexy dress that I wanted to try on just for fun:

I love the zippers! It's a dress made of stretchy denim with decorative zippers. I didn't buy it because I don't know where I could were it. It seems too sexy to go clubbing... It was also $24.99, so I was hesitant... I still don't know if I should buy it or not, but by the time I go to Winners again, my size will probably be gone -_-

Monday and Thuesday, I basically spent all day in the sun in my backyard in a swimsuit (with loads of sunscreen, of course!) hoping to get a tan. It was around 30°!


 My baby also got to play in the sun, but not for long, as he is used to A/C LOL.

My mother, who works at a local college's library, brought me those three books they just received:
I think I heard about those books (The Vampire Diaries) before, and the story looks similar to Twilight (which I'm absolutely NOT a fan), but I've started reading the first one and it's good so far. We'll see!


  1. I tagged you on my blog! x

  2. Hi Gaby!
    I love your blog! I also love the yellow dress in your post. Question for you: how did you get that sort of crazy, face-erased (for lack of a better term) effect in the first photo of the yellow dress? I don't know much about photo editing, but that's awesome!

  3. I love the vampire diaries book it's amazing!!

    cute outfits!

  4. @Fern: Thank you! I'm checking this out! (=

    @Chelsea: Thank you! For messing up my face, I simply used the finger tool in Photofiltre. I also use it to blur my address on packages I receive, etc.

    @Jenn: I'm glad you like them! I know there's a TV serie based on them, but I don't know much.

  5. hahaha LOVE how you messed your face up like that! It's cool looking.

    Those dresses you got are super cute!

  6. Go and buy that black dress immediately before I kick your lovely butt ! You look absolutely stunning in it ....

    Caro xxx

  7. @Chels: Thanks! I usually don't do that but my hair was absolutely disgusting ahah!

    @MUA: Awww I don't know! I will never wear it, and as pretty as it is, it will go to waste -_-

  8. Dresses are very pretty, and I love the stripes in your OOTD =] oh and I love the wii too, been wanting this game lol

  9. @Sarai: Thank you! Yes, the Wii rocks! I love Mario Galaxy, I think it's one of the best Wii games so far (including Zelda: Twilight Princess)

  10. OMG it's so fun to see pictures of you and your friends having a blast! Haha - some of the expressions on their faces are hilarious but that's okay - we all look a little bit funny when we're drunk. Lotsa booze too ;) And you had the lights going on too - cool!
    I love my hair a bit messy too - it gives it volume and some character. Plus, it's way easier to do than have perfect hair :)
    The striped top looks good and I love your FOTD. You look gorgeous as always. And the yellow dress is such a great bargain. I love the colour yellow for clothes. I also think the denim/zipper dress is nice - I think it's good for clubbing (not too sexy at all!). You should see what some of the ladies wear here. I always feel like I have too much clothes on at the club compared to most ladies. Plus you have a great figure so you can pull it off.
    And the star tattoo on your stomach is neat! I don't have any tattoos - just a couple of piercings.
    I haven't played Mario games in ages but I love Yoshi. He's so cute esp if he can change colours! And Vector cereal is really good. I love the honey clusters in them.

  11. @JESSU: Yes, it's amazing ^^

  12. Brilliant website, I had not come across gabysbeautyblog.blogspot.com before in my searches!
    Keep up the superb work!
