Just a little shopping spree brag blog post here. I visited the Calgary Spring Fibre Festival on May 12, 2018 and picked up a few different items.

These were $10.00/lb, and I bought 3lbs. This should be plenty of yarn to play around with, and usually sells for $15.00 for a 1/4lb spool.  Continue reading

One last post specifically about Lime Crime cosmetics I bought from Winners today. I bought three different shades of Diamond Dew; but I’m not nearly as obsessed with them as I am about the Diamond Crushers…

New beauty obsession – Lime Crime

Assortment of Lime Crime Diamond Crushers lip toppers

I very rarely blog about beauty products… but I’ve been on a minor beauty bender lately, and thought I’d blog about it…

One of my friends mentioned fairly recently that she’s pretty much obsessed with Lime Crime cosmetics (which don’t have much of a retail space here in Calgary) but I hesitated to consider ordering anything sight-unseen… until I found a few different Lime Crime products at Winners.
