Essence The Gel Nail Polish - Island Hopping, Feels Like Birthday, Perfect Match, Dreaming of Love, Jeans On

Nail Polish is not something I tend to focus on here on the blog. It’s not that I don’t like wearing Nail Polish I just generally don’t make the time to worry about it too often. Which, when you consider the amount of nail polish I own, is pretty silly. Out of all the nail polish I own, the ‘Essence The Gel Nail Polish‘ ($2.99 CAD each) line is hands down my favourite.  There are currently 24 different shades in the line, in a wide variety of colours.

Too Faced Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Collection Palette


Even though it has been out for quite a while now, I finally got around to picking up the Too Faced Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Collection Palette ($59 CAD).  The palette itself was originally released back in early 2016, and I somehow managed to miss it completely.  It was re-released a few months ago as part of a larger collection and by that time I didn’t feel the need to rush out and purchase it first thing.

As much as I love DAVIDsTEA, I often forget that every month they have a Tea of the Month.  Maybe it’s because I don’t usually make it into the store at the beginning of the month when the Tea of the Month is usually being promoted.  But not this time; this time I managed to be in-store right at the beginning of the month and had the opportunity to sample the latest offering for March 2017; DAVIDsTEA Lemon Pound Cake Oolong Teaand I’ve been drinking it ever since.

About the Book

A compelling dual-narrated tale from Jennifer Latham that asks the question - how far have we really come with race relations in the last 100 years?

Some bodies won't stay buried.
Some stories need to be told.

When seventeen-year-old Rowan Chase finds a skeleton on her family's property, she has no idea that investigating the brutal century-old murder will lead to a summer of painful discoveries about the past... and the present.

Nearly one hundred years earlier, a misguided violent encounter propels seventeen-year-old Will Tillman into a racial firestorm. In a country rife with violence against blacks and a hometown segregated by Jim Crow, Will must make hard choices on a painful journey towards self discovery and face his inner demons in order to do what's right the night Tulsa burns.

Through intricately interwoven alternating perspectives, Jennifer Latham's lightning-paced page-turner brings the Tulsa race riot of 1921 to blazing life and raises important question about the complex state of US race relations - both yesterday and today.
