New Apartment

I've not had access to my PC so blogging has been put on the back burner as I don't like posting from my phone (as I am right now!)
I find the photos upload the wrong quality & size & it drives me bonkers!

Toronto has been a rollercoaster but I'm concentrating on the positives & it's been a blast :)

I've been taking full advantage of the Subway & exploring the city & all the new shops ;) My nail polish addiction is being fed rather nicely hehe!

I'm hoping to take a bus tour this weekend to get the tourist thing out of the way, should be fun, still so much to learn :)

Hope to get back to posting regularly once our shipment arrives & I get the PC back :)

I'm in Toronto!

I'm still alive I swear!
It's been a tough week settling in - only as I type this do I realise that tomorrow will be our 1 week anniversary of arriving in Toronto.
It's been a rollercoaster with a lot of exitement marred by a lot of tears (I fail every day at not being over emotional) but I know it's all part of the process & I will find my feet :)

The shopping possibilities are phenomenal to a UK gal like me!!
I'm temporarily based right opposite the Eaton Centre eeeeeeek!
I dove into Sephora as fast as I could ha! Got some lovely bits today as a cheer-me-up treat & want to do a photo post (hopefully tomorrow) to show all my goodies :)

My current nail polish purchase total since landing on Canadian soil is.... 5 bottles & a set of sally hanson nail wraps.
Oh dear- that's almost 1 nail treat a day! Somebody stop me!
I've already got my eye on some cheapy neons in Claires & some more in Hot Topic opps!

If you are reading this I hope you are having an amazing week with lots of treats :)

Duty Free MAC & Clinique splurge!

Oh My...... I just spluged £70 in duty free on make-up eeeek!
I was super emotional about moving & the pull of retail therapy got the better of me!

I got my Clinique Redness Solutions protective base for under a tenner - score!

Then the MAC stand.
I confess I've never owned any MAC before & I covet it highly .... A bit too highly it seems as I really went overboard -

Studio Tech Foundation in NC15

Pearlglide intense eyeliner in Designer Purple (intense shimmer lust!)

Eyeshadow quad (£29 OUCH!) In 'shop and drop' - at least I think that's what it's called haha!

Ooooh our gate just got called! Can't wait to try these products out & do my first swatch & review on here :)


Toronto here we come!

I can hardly believe that in just a few hours I will finally be on my way to the airport!
It's been such a stressful week I'm practically shaking from all the excess adrenaline :'(

I can't wait to see what my new home city had in store for me - and I'm overjoyed at the fact that our temporary accommodation is directly across the street from the Eton Centre! :D

I'm hoping that the flight goes smoothly - at 8 hours long it will be the longest flight I've even taken... And I find it impossible to sleep on planes :(

I have my camera fully charged so I can be a complete tourist for at least a few weeks!
