A month ago, my family and I decided to spend the long weekend right before school starts at Edmonton. My brother-in-law would be heading there for a bachelor party anyways so we thought why not go there as well.

The bag I brought with me is roughly about 7×6 inches and I was surprised it fit everything I thought I would need for the weekend.

Sephora VIB Sale Haul

The Sephora VIB sale is the one time in the year where I get to indulge in products more expensive than I would normally spend money on.

For the past weeks my skin has been acting funny. I was not too worried about the products I use to cleanse my face as my skin is not as sensitive. Looking back that might have been a bad idea.

With that, I used this past VIB Sale to try skin care products from Origins which I have heard so many good things about. I have started using some of the products I bought and so far no breakouts yet. 🙂

  • Urban Decay De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray
