Finally, another week done! I swear, January is the worst month of the year. It’s cold, dreary and you’re broke from Christmas. The good thing is there’s only one more week left in the month and then we’re on to February!
I had the WORST experience @ Sephora last weekend…and I’m holding a bit of a grudge. It related to me returning the Foreo Toothbrush my husband bought me for Christmas. When he bought it for me they had to pull a barcode off of their website because there was nothing on the box…and they used the barcode for a blue toothbrush instead of the purple one he bought me. Fast forward to me trying to return it – there’s no barcode on the box AND the item on the receipt is a different colour than what I’m returning. So I could understand why this looks suspicious. However, the girl at the register made me feel like I had stolen something or was trying to scam them (I’ll spare you her exact comments). After fighting with the sales clerk forever and receiving several suspicious looks from her, she finally agreed to return it. Except I didn’t have the VISA used to pay for it on me. So they wouldn’t return it and now I have to go back this weekend and likely go through this all again. I couldn’t believe how rude and accusatory the sales clerk was though – she totally ruined my day. And it definitely made me question my loyalty to Sephora.
I wish we had Kohl’s here in Canada because I would love to shop Lauren Conrad’s new Minnie Mouse Fashion Line. So cute and girly!
I think I might give Pioneer Woman’s Roasted Red Pepper Pasta a go this Sunday. I’ve heard nothing but delicious reviews about it and it seems really simple!
I’m contemplating signing Maggie up for Paw Pack or a Bowzer Box – has anyone tried either? I subscribed to a 6 month Bark Box subscription using a Groupon in the summer and it’s been kind of meh. I’d like to try a Canadian one!
This Drake themed gift guide is hilarious and awesome. Huge Drake fan here. He’s my boyfriend, he just doesn’t know it yet.
I rediscovered NailPolish Canada thanks to StashMatters this week (#enabler)! I had previously placed orders with them and was always very impressed with their service. I had no idea they now carry cosmetics, including brands that can be difficult to find in stores here such as e.l.f., Real Techniques and The Balm. I’m putting together a shopping list as we speak.
Wishing you a great weekend!

I can’t believe how quickly January flew by!
Oh that’s a terrible experience at Sephora! Geez. I don’t understand what goes through their heads when they’re being so awful to customers. It’s relatively EASY to keep a customer happy but to try to regain an unhappy customer? Gah!
My friend signed up for a doggy monthly subscription and she loves it. I’m not sure which one but she gets high quality treats and realy cute toys.
Aww haha sorry (not sorry) about the rediscovery of NPC! Can’t wait to see what goodies you pick up! 😉

Thankfully I went to my regular Sephora location over the weekend and it was a better experience. But I agree, customer service is a lost art!
Very excited to make a NPC order! 🙂
