What I Got For Christmas | 2015

I've never done a post like this one before and I thought it would be nice to do one because I've been seeing YouTubers posting videos on what they got for Christmas. The stuff I got will never be as extravagant as what those YouTubers received but I'm still really happy to show you guys the gifts I got this year!

Takhini Hot Pools

Let's go back to the Yukon on this post shall we?

I lived in the Yukon for 3 years and 7 months but it's only in my third year of living there that I was able to visit the infamous Takhini Hot Springs. It's approximately a 30-45 minute drive from the city center, which is Whitehorse, and it's a great place to go relax and unwind.

Montreal | PART 3

We're almost coming to an end with my #CorinthGoesToMontreal series! CLICK HERE IF YOU MISSED PART ONE AND TWO.

  • DAY 6 - Tuesday was my last free day to explore freely so I really made the most out of it. I roamed around the downtown area for a bit and I went to see an art museum, which was absolutely free of charge! I tried to find and explore the Underground City that day (I also tried some days ago),  but I failed miserably. I killed my feet trying to do that so just I decided to go back to Mont-Royal to crush on more houses because the last time I went, darkness fell upon me quickly. After I took a bunch of #houseportraits, I ended up going to this coffee shop called Café Venosa which is a vegan coffee joint and they have cats inside! You read that right. CATS IN A COFFEE SHOP! I was so happy! 😻 The almond milk mocha I had was pretty good too.

Benefit Porefessional VS NYX Pore Filler

Are you one of those ladies who feel so happy when you discover a dupe for a great BUT super expensive high end product? That's me too!

Back when I was in Canada, I saw Benefit's Porefessional floating around the YouTube world and I gave into the hype. Did I find it awesome? Yes. I think it's a really great product for its purpose, but is it worthy of its price point? I don't think so. I tried to find an alternative for it because I didn't want to keep spending $31 for a primer (and it's even more expensive in Whitehorse), but I had no luck. I settled for Maybelline's Baby Skin but I don't think it fills in my pores as well as the Porefessional does. So, my hunt continued when I moved to the US. Last month, I picked up NYX's Pore Filler and guess what, I think I found my DUPE!

DIY: Pinecone Garland + Photo Display

When I went inside Michael's, I was greeted by the lovely smell of scented pinecones and my mother-in-law pointed out that they were on sale! So of course, I got myself a bag and boy was I so excited to do a DIY on them!

I knew that I wanted to make a garland out of them but I wasn't sure how so I just went along with my gut. It was actually harder than I thought when I first started doing it but after a few trial and errors, I learned how to make them slightly easier!

Montreal | PART 2

Let's continue on my Montreal adventure shall we? CLICK ME IF YOU MISSED PART 1.

  • DAY 3 - On my third day, I woke up very late and I decided I would just have a slow day and go see a movie. I went to the closest movie theater from the apartment. I bought a ticket for The Martian but the show didn't start until after an hour and 3o mins so I went to Mc Donald's to wait and go for a bathroom break. So I go inside the cubicle, set my phone on top of the toilet paper holder and then.... CRASH! My phone screen was smashed into pieces and I cried! I felt so helpless and I was alone so you can just imagine my grief! Thank God for Google, I was able to find a convenience store nearby and I bought tape to hold the remaining pieces of my phone screen in place (thanks Jorge for the tip!). I was so mad at myself for being so careless. Then I went and saw the movie and I realized that my smashed iPhone 5s screen was nothing compared to Matt Damon's dilemma. PERSPECTIVE!

Montreal | PART 1

I can't believe I waited for almost two months to get this post up! I am extremely ashamed of myself but here it is nonetheless. I will be cutting up my Montreal blog posts into three parts and I will also be posting a Montreal Vlog as the last post of my #CorinthGoesToMontreal Series. This will be a photo diary sort of post because I don't want to bore you with details of the trip so I'll just let the photos speak for themselves.
