Lately I feel like I’ve been really good with budgeting & resisting on buying things I don’t need. BUT sometimes a lady just needs to treat themselves.
I picked up a few goodies during the weekend which I am excited to dip right into.
Delicious body butter ready to moisturize my skin for Spring!
Who doesn’t love body butter?
I am a classic Vaseline coco butter type of person but for some reason as soon as the sun starts shining I want to instantly go to Body Shop & buy gallons of body butter! Lucky for me, they were having an amazing sale with their body butter. You could get selected ones for $10 – original price $20 CAD! So, naturally I had to pick up a few.
Coco Butter: Wrap your skin in a rich, indulgent, chocolate-scented cream that moisturizes and softens for up to 24 hours.
Best for: very dry skin and pregnant women to help prevent stretch marks
Strawberry: This rich and creamy Body Butter is a feast for the skin. It melts straight in to leave skin feeling soft and smooth. It contains Community Fair Trade shea butter and has a sweet strawberry scent. 24-hour hydration Great for normal to dry skin Sweet strawberry scent
Satsuma (The classic! This is a summer must! Note: this one was regular price.)
I did a quick Sephora run to grab a few things for a friend. I didn’t find any giftpacks that they usually carry so I decided to create my own with a summmer beach theme. With a few nail-polish, lip gloss, balm, hand lotion and so much more I was ready to check out. BUT I couldn’t have left without grabbing myself a couple of treats.
I love lip colour and balms. I usually put colour on my lips every morning but by the time lunch has come I forget to reapply colour and just stick with balm. I’m trying to break that habit and always make my lips fun with colour

I only usually drink water (I know, boring!) but I do love tea once in awhile.
I don’t have crazy flavors mixed with chocolate or coconut. The ones I do enjoy are pretty mild in taste and a crowd favorite.
The Earl of Lemon
“This deliciously smooth white tea blend is basically Earl Grey’s younger, cooler cousin. It’s lightly floral, delicately sweet and refreshingly citrusy, studded with yogurt pieces for a touch of creaminess. But before you take your first sip, give yourself a moment to enjoy its fresh, lemon-and-bergamot aroma. It gives the old classic a welcome breath of fresh air. ”
Organic North African Mint (organic)
“Explore Northern Africa, from its souks to its deserts, with this intense combination of spices and mint. It combines organic green tea and peppermint with organic cardamom, ginger, licorice root, fennel clove and black pepper. Deliciously sweet, with all the romance of the Maghreb.” – MY FAVE!
I also grabbed a few gadgets to help me drink my loose teas:
Agave Squeeze Bottle
“Agave syrup is a deliciously all-natural sweetener made from the juice of the agave plant. It’s perfect for hot or iced tea, or for making the ultimate tea martinis. Ours is certified organic, with a nice, light flavour – use it sparingly, because it’s even sweeter and tastier than sugar. And the best part? It doesn’t cause sharp rises or falls in blood sugar. Taste the difference!”
What is your favorite tea/drink that you can’t say no to?!
