I ♥ Spring TAG

Happy Thursday Everyone!!

Today I thought I would do the I ♥ Spring tag that has been floating around youtube. This tag was created by Ingrid (you can check out her video here), but I was inspired to do this tag because of my friend Jamie (go check out her video here). 

I thought about doing a video for this, but I changed I decided to stick with what I know so I'm going to make you guys read it. Sorry (not really).

Keep reading to see a few of my favorite spring things!

Nail Polish Collection

Hello Everyone!!

If you haven't done so already, go check out the Making It Sparkle Facebook page!! Yay!! Go "like" it here!

Today you get to see my nail polish collection! Yay!! Exciting!!

My sister and I tend to share our nail polishes (so you might see manicures with colors that she purchased) but today I'm only going to share the ones that I purchased. I also have a few more polishes at my mom's place because I couldn't take them all back with me. These won't be included here.

I also realize this could get long, so I will pretty much just post the pictures and the names so you can easily scan through to see what you might like. Enjoy!

Family Time

Hello everyone!

Sorry that I haven't updated in the last week, I was a little distracted with my mom's visit!

She stayed with my sister and me for a few days. It wasn't her first time in Toronto, so she wanted to focus on just spending time with us :)

Here is a little recap of the few days that she was here. We did a little shopping, a little exploring, a little drinking, had some treats, and lots of coffee! 

My little fam :)

Decluttering My Shower

Hello Hello! And Happy Weekend!!

I have some exciting news for you. Making It Sparkle has a Facebook page!! Yay!! Go "like" it here!

Moving on. For part two of my de-cluttering series I will be focusing on shower products. Check out part one here. I thought I'd include shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, and body wash. I also have a face wash and a razor in my shower but I'm not too worried about having to de-clutter those products ha!

Never Enough Lip Gloss

Hello hello!!!

If you read my previous post (click here), you will know that I'm doing a sort of "de-clutter my life" series (and repurchasing new products, obviously).

So I thought I would start with lip products, because I LOVE lip products. Pretty much I'm addicted to lip gloss. Talk to anyone that went to high school with me. At any given time you could probably find at least 5 different lip products my purse (and maybe one or two in a jacket pocket somewhere).

Recently, when this bright idea to de-clutter hit me, I chucked out all my old, expired, and gross looking products. This was before I thought that I would blog about it, so no picture of everything that got trashed, sorry. But who wants to see a pile of old and gross lip gloss anyway? However, this left me with a very limited collection.

De-cluttering my life - one area at a time

Hi Everyone!!

Lately I've been trying to slowly de-clutter my life. And by that I really mean my apartment. I just wanted to get rid of the things I don't use anymore, because, lets face it, I will be buying new things anyway.

Right after Christmas I started to put some clothes that I no longer wear in a box. I haven't donated the box yet, because every once in a while I still come across a few items that I keep adding to it. I'll keep you guys posted on how that goes.

I've also recently thrown out all most of my old makeup. Make up that I haven't used in forever, or make up that was expired, or just old (some color separation and such) or that I didn't like. It felt good to get rid of the old stuff, but then it left me with a rather limited collection. That means?!?! Perfect opportunity to try out some new stuff! **Yay Shopping**

So I decided to kind of de-clutter various parts of my life (clothes, make-up, random things) and share the "journey" with all of you. I'm going to be continuing this over the next few posts, organizing it by themes (that make sense to me). So one day I will do clothes, then maybe shoes, accessories, etc. I am also going to be dividing the makeup up into categories so it doesn't get too overwhelming.

Hopefully you will all stay tuned for my little adventure! And let me know if there is anything  you would like me to talk about reorganizing/de-cluttering. Maybe you guys will come up with something that I haven't even thought of as needing an overhaul. So please feel free to leave a comment telling me what you'd like read about, or if you are planning to do the same thing, etc. I would LOVE to hear from you!!

Happy Birthday Mom

Today is my mom's birthday, so I wanted to take a minute and wish her a very happy birthday!

She will actually be coming to visit us next Sunday, and we will be celebrating then.
She decided that she doesn't want us to mail her a gift, but instead do some shopping when she is here and then if she finds something she loves we will get it for her.

I am actually really excited to see her. I got to celebrate my own birthday at home with her and now she is flying here (a week after her birthday) and we get to celebrate together again! It's been a while since I was able to celebrate her birthday with her too. I've always been away at school. So I'm super exciting for this.

My sister and I have already tried to come up with a few little activities to do while she is here. We want to show her some our favourite places and cute little shops and such. Can't wait!

But now I just wanted to send her the very best birthday wishes. I wish I could be there with her today, enjoying a piece of birthday cake with her.

Happy Birthday Mom!!!!
