Shopping: Wal-Mart, Jean Coutu, Uniprix, Shoppers Drug Mart...

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Pink in the Afternoon: I finally decided to use my $5 Revlon/Almay voucher on a lipstick before it expired in December, so this cost me around $3.

I'm not much of a lipstick girl, but I have been looking forever for an everyday pink lipstick. I'm a little difficult when it comes to lipsticks as I have a pale skintone and I don't want my lips to scream "I'm wearing lipstick!". I also wanted a creme finish. So I browsed the Revlon aisle at my local Wal-Mart and finally settled for this one. I've been told that the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick were a little drying (which isn't great for me as I already have super dry lips) but I find that it's okay when I put lipbalm underneath.

Garnier Nutrisse Intense Red Nourishing Colour Cream in Cabernet 460 (Intense Dark Red) : I've been waiting impatiently for those babies to hit the shelves in Quebec, and they finally did! I even got this one on sale for $6.99 instead of $9.99! I decided to try this shade as I was looking for the darkest red available. Syrah and Merlot looked too orange to me.

There's only one problem though...

Garnier Nutrisse Intense Red is NOT for me... as my hair is currently colored with a dark brown shade! I wish I had read this before buying it LOL. But I'm too curious, I would have tried it anyway!

Take a look at the other Intense Red shades here.

 L to R: Cabernet 460, Syrah 564 and Merlot 660

You can even get a $2.00 coupon here!

Vaseline Intensive Rescue Extra Strength Lotion: I received a coupon from Save.ca for a free 325 ml bottle of this Vaseline lotion. If you share your review of this lotion on Facebook.com/Vaseline, you will have a chance to win a year's worth of manicures and pedicures for you and a friend!

L'Oréal Féria Power Reds in Deep Burgundy R37: These were on sale at Shopper Drug Mart for $8.99, and I had two 2$ off coupon on any Féria product, and I had a $20 Shoppers Drug Mart gift card, so it was free for me! Yey!

I got my coupon from webSaver.ca but the offer isn't available anymore )=

 Hot Paws Thermal Acrylind Blend Socks (2 pairs) and George Cotton Blend Socks (6 pairs): I needed socks really badly as almost all of those I had had holes in them -_- The George pairs are plain black socks, but the Hot Paws ones are supposed to keep feet warm, and aren't they cool with the pink zebra prints? I bet they will be amazing paired with my Cougar boots!

The paw is so cute!

Koopa Troopa plush: My boyfriend bought me Yoshi the last time we were in Best Buy, and this time, he bought me Koopa! I love Nintendo plushes, and he knows I want them all (they are $9.99 at Best Buy). Thanks baby (=

Guimauve IV: My beloved Dorothé passed away this week )= I let some days pass before deciding if I wanted another rat or not, but I finally settled for a gerbil, as I have allergies to rats and they stink, no matter how many times a week you wash their cage. I love rats, they are very intelligent and affectionate, and I will definitely have another one some days, but I missed having a little gerbil too. I think I might have lost count, but she is supposed to be Guimauve IV... or maybe V? Hmm...

She is only 1 month old, and she is soooo tiny and cute! Awwwww (=


  1. Cute purchases. And beautiful pictures. Love the hair color you bought as well. Can't wait to see how it looks on you.

  2. Such a cute little gerbil! Sorry to hear about your loss of your beloved rat though :( I have that revlon lipstick, its a great everyday pink (although I'm not much of a fan of lipstick either!) I think you will look great with red hair! Good luck! :)

  3. @Jasmin: Thanks! I can't wait to see how the hair dye will turn out either!

    @Shaylee Anne: She is adorable ^^ I love the lipstick so far, even though it's a little too dark for my skintone, but topped with lipgloss, it's great!

  4. love that lipstick. so subtle but groomed and the shade suits you- you look so pretty in the pictures!
    love those paws socks!
    and your gerbil is so cute!

  5. @Claire M: Aww thank you! I guess I just have to get used to it.

  6. That lipstick really suits you.Simply stunning!!! I am of to stock up on some cosy socks on friday,love your choice :)


  7. What a great haul! The lipsick does look great on you! Works well with your skin tone! And the gerbil is too cute! Sorry to hear about your rat :( I always had rats growing up! They were so much fun!

  8. The lipstick looks really pretty on you. =] I always enjoy reading your reviews even though sometimes I don't comment. hahaha

  9. that is so sad that your rat died:(...I don't like reading about that stuff- on the other hand you have a really cute gerbil:)

  10. jai hate voir les resultats de tes cheveux! =DD

  11. You have such a natural beauty. You are gorgeous, just thought I'd tell ya :)

    Love the pink lipstick. My everyday pink is Rimmel's Nostalgia. The zebra print socks are so chic and look super comfy!

  12. @BeautybyPaula: Thank you! I think the shade is growing on me. And I haven't even tried the Hot Paws socks yet LOL.

    @The Peach: Thanks! I always had rats, too, but I have allergies and they stink )=

    @Leenda: Thanks! And I'm glad that you like my reviews (=

    @Vyile : Yes )= But I'm OK now, as I have allergies, and I have a cute little gerbil. I love rats because they are more fun and cuddly, but gerbils are more active.

    @petitechouxx: Je les ai teint avec la teinture de Garnier, et c'est un peu décevant... les photos s'en viennent!

    @Leslie: Awww thank you! I didn't know about Rimmel's Nostalgia, but I will check it out, thanks for letting me know!

  13. lovely haul! you're so pretty - love your eyes :) xx

  14. @roshas: Awww thank you!! ^^

  15. Hey Gaby!! Ah, just have a bit of free time on the internet here in rural Thailand....because of the pictures on your blog and the verrry slow internet here, it took so long to view your page so I'll just say hi for now and get back to your blog posts when I'm in Toronto :)
    Guimauve is sooooo cute! I miss my gerbil Mousie (I also re name the same name of new pets, like Mousie Junior, Mousie..etc) as he passed away earlier this year. But I still have Bobo and he's a handful :) Gerbils can be so affectionate. Does Guimauve let you hold him/her?
    I'm so sorry to hear about Dorothe passing away :(
    Koopa Troopa is very cute too! I love Yoshi as well.
    I have had some pretty good experiences with Feria hair dye showing up in my hair. But the last time I coloured my hair a red shade from feria, my roots came out waaaay more red than the rest of my hair LOL Even my bf was laughing a bit :P
    Hopefully the Garnier Nutrisse Intense Red still works on you despite the dark hair colour you already have. Half the time, boxed red hair dye never comes out even 90% right for me anyways :(
    You know, sometimes when I get a coupon for a free item, they still charge me the tax on the item! Luck you got the wipes for free :)
    Take care!

  16. aht he lipstick has a perfect colour i like it !:)

  18. @Princess Feef: I would say more burgundy than redhead z=
