Three Things Thursday + a Giveaway!

May 23, 2013

1) I just got back from my first run with Liam in the stroller. It sucked. Running is hard enough for me as it is, let alone pushing a 20lb kid in a stroller! But I needed to get a workout in since Liam is still sick and I don’t want to take him to the gym where he could pass his cold on to the other kids. I guess I should make a point to get out running with the stroller more often to build up my stamina.

2) I want to find a petting zoo to take Liam too. He is really starting to love animals and it’s so fun introducing him to new ones. I think he would love meeting all the new animals at a petting zoo. And let’s face it, I love petting zoos too so it’s just as much fun for me!

3) I received another Glossybox yesterday! This box contained ModelCo Cheek and Lip Tint in Rosy Red, Jergens Natural Glow 3 Days to Glow Moisturizer, L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Serum Intense, Tresemme Platinum Strength Deep Conditioning Treatment and BM Beauty Platinum Tiara Eye Shadow as well as coupons for Biore and L’Oreal Youth Code. I immediately used the Jergens tanning lotion after my shower and am actually really impressed with it. Most tanning lotions I’ve used are terrible, streaky, orange and look ridiculous but by morning I could see a nice, natural glow. I’m excited to try the deep conditioning treatment as well.

Here’s the fun part. Glossybox has generously agreed to send a box to one of you lovelies! To enter just leave me a comment telling me what your favorite beauty product is. I will draw a winner on Monday! Good luck!

    I wear very little makeup (but probably should) but my favourite product is Rocky mountain soap company’s rose oil face wash! It smells amazing!

      I don’t wear too much makeup either, a little bit of BB Cream to even out my face and some mascara most days.

      I didn’t realize just how hard it would be!

      And yes, it’s hard to find time to do your hair and makeup. Luckily I keep things fairly simple anyways. BB Cream and mascara

    My favourite beauty product is the mascara that lengthens your lashes. Nice job on the stroller jog!

    I picked up some tanning lotion, and its just awful, I can’t get over the smell. I might still use it if I can be outside getting fresh air but definitely not while i’m sitting inside, its just too much. I heard that jergens stuff was good, but didn’t find it! maybe I should look some more.
    I’ve been a fan of this BB cream I’ve bought, so simple to just slap that on instead of doing the whole makeup face thing lol
    i can’t live without mascara and eyeliner though!!

    I need under eye concealer. I have terrible dark circles that I think are inherited from my mom. Plus you know, having 2 kids under 2 means I’m up at least twice a night every night. I’m sure that has something to do with it too!

    Good job on the run! It sucks at first but does get better after awhile. I remember the first few runs with the stroller I thought that labour was easier! Obviously I forgot what that was really like!

    I don’t know if I have ever been to a petting zoo before. I’m sure A would love it.

    I can’t live without most makeup but if I had to pick one item it would be mascara. I like Benefit or Dior Show (which is actually the same thing).

    I’ve been meaning to try BB cream.

      Really Benefit and Dior Show are the same? I used to use Dior Show but stopped because every single bottle I had would break. I think I returned three or four in a row before giving up. I love Too Faced the best because it doesn’t rub off on my eyelids (I have long lashes) but I can’t get it in Red Deer so I usually just buy Benefit.

        Benefit Bad Gal Lash mascara is the same as Dior Show. I guess they are owned by the same company so same formula, different packaging. I think Dior Show is $5-8 more so when the beautician told me that I went for the cheaper one! It’s expensive enough as it is! I’ve never had the bottle break before but I wouldn’t be very happy about that!

        I don’t think I’ve ever tried Too-Faced. I usually just buy Benefit at Shoppers or Sephora. I don’t have issues with the Benefit rubbing off on my eyelids and I have long lashes too but other brands I have that issue with- usually if it is a thinner formula and is quite wet when it first goes on.

    Glossybox is such a good idea! I don’t wear much makeup, but I love the extra boost my lashes get when I use Clinique lash primer under my mascara. Ama-za-zing.
