The One with the October Instagram Challenges {Week Three}

Writing out “week 3” really hit me and has me wondering where October went! We’re already nearing the end, which means Halloween is coming up and my birthday too (on November 3rd). 🙂

So something happened to me that I didn’t think would ever happen – someone completely copied my blog! Everyone should really pay attention to their referrers in their insights because that’s how I figured it out. I have no idea what this person is getting from copying my site but apparently they felt the need to. I have contacted their web host because I’m not sure what else I’m supposed to do in this situation. Hopefully they can aid me with getting their client to take it down. Has anyone ever dealt with this?! What did you do?

How was everyone’s weekend? I was lucky enough to be off work so I was able to take a road trip to visit my sister and nephew for his 2nd birthday. The weekend was relaxing and an enjoyable visit. Unfortunately, my son came down with a fever on the Friday. He was still his hyper active self during the day which was good but the nights were a little rougher. That’s when it seemed to peak! He still seems like he isn’t 100% recovered but I’ll see tonight, I suppose.

I also came down with a fever on Sunday night and it was awful. It’s been awhile since I experienced one and the chills, sweats, aches and pains that go with it! The funny thing is, I woke up this morning feeling fine! I’m glad that it passed so quickly. It’s very tough as a mom to be sick and have a child to take care of at the same time when you just don’t want to get out of bed.

I’ve pretty much failed at my challenges this week. I had a feeling that would happen with working so much! But here are the days that I did complete and a few extra pictures.

Day 15 of the #octoberbeautychallenge2017 is "skincare routine." This is what I used on my face last night! Details below! ⬇️ ・・・ 1️⃣ Murad Clarifying Cleanser @muradskincare 2️⃣ Nars Skin Multi-Action Hydrating Toner @narsissist 3️⃣ Vichy Mineral 89 Daily Booster @vichycanada 4️⃣ Roger & Gallet Aura Mirabilis Double-Extract @rogergallet 5️⃣ Bioderma Sensibio Eye Contour Gel @biodermacanada 6️⃣ Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream @peterthomasrothofficial 7️⃣ Ole Henriksen Ultimate Lift Eye Cream @olehenriksen 8️⃣ Fresh Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil @freshbeauty ・・・ Two eye creams because I'm trying to use these ones up quickly.

Day 16 of the #hpskincarechallenge is "invisibility cloak." Which products do I use when I need extra coverage? Details below. ⬇️ ・・・ 1️⃣ Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer 🍃 This is the fullest coverage foundation I own. It's more medium to full depending on how you build it. @cliniquecanada 2️⃣ Pür Disappearing Act 4-in-1 Concealer 🍃 Liquid concealers just don't do it for me when it comes to acne. I need a heavier duty concealer like this one! @purcosmetics ・・・ What is your "invisibility cloak?" Which products do you use to hide those pesky spots or problematic areas? . . . . . #clinique #purcosmetics #foundation #concealer #fullcoverage #makeupbrushes #fallvibes #makeup #beauty #beautycommunity #beautyblog #blog #bblogger #bbloggersca #30plusblogs #discoverunder1k #discoverunder5k #canadianblogger #canadianbeauty #instabeauty #instablogger #beautygram #beautyaddict #wakeupandmakeup #flatlay #beautyflatlay #slaytheflatlay #potterhead #harrypotterlove

Day 16 of the #octoberbeautychallenge2017 is "swatches." The swatches I chose are from the Smashbox "Drawn In. Decked Out." Shadow + Highlighting Palette Set! @smashboxcanada ・・・ 1️⃣ Cover Shot Eyeshadow Palette in Ablaze 2️⃣ Limited Edition Cover Shot Eyeshadow Palette in Sultry 3️⃣ Spotlight Highlight Palette in Pearl ・・・ The eyeshadow palettes are full size and the highlighter palette is travel size (all 3 palettes are the same size physically). I definitely recommend this little trio of palettes if you can get your hands on it! ・・・ Have you tried any of these palettes before? What are your thoughts? . . . . . #smashboxcovershot #covershotpalette #smashboxeyeshadow #covershotablaze #covershotsultry #spotlightpalette #spotlightpalettepearl #swatches #eyeshadowswatches #makeup #beauty #beautycommunity #beautyblog #blog #bblogger #bbloggersca #30plusblogs #discoverunder1k #discoverunder5k #canadianblogger #canadianbeauty #instabeauty #instablogger #beautygram #beautyaddict #wakeupandmakeup #flatlay #beautyflatlay #slaytheflatlay

Day 20 of the #octobermaskchallenge is "caviar." This is the CoQ10 + Caviar Face Mask Sheet from Skin Republic! @skinrepublic ・・・ This mask was nice to wear! It had a lot of essence and stayed put on my face. It's fit was just ok but that's normal for sheet masks for me lol. It lasted about 30 minutes before it started drying up in the chin area. My skin felt very hydrated after and only left it slightly sticky. ・・・ Have you tried this mask before? What's your favourite sheet mask? . . . . . #skinrepublic #coq10 #caviar #sheetmask #hydratingskincare #skincare #skincareroutine #skincareobsessed #skincarejunkie #makeup #beauty #beautycommunity #beautyblog #blog #bblogger #bbloggersca #30plusblogs #discoverunder1k #discoverunder5k #canadianblogger #canadianbeauty #instabeauty #instablogger #beautygram #beautyaddict #wakeupandmakeup #flatlay #beautyflatlay #slaytheflatlay

See? I failed. 😦 I’m still trying to play catch up on some of the days! Some I won’t bother with because I already have similar photos. Here are the miscellaneous pictures from this past week:

The giveaway I won from the lovely Jess:

Recently I won a giveaway from @xxojess_ and I thought I would share it! Included was the Pixi Double Cleanse, ItsJudyTime palette, ColourPop lippies and more! It's always surprising to win a giveaway and I couldn't be more happy to have some amazing new products to try! ❤️ Thanks girl! ・・・ Sorry I've been a little absent and not posting my usual amount of pictures. I've been caught up with work and I really dislike the quality of my pics when I can't use natural lighting! This pic luckily I had taken already! . . . . . #pixibeauty #colourpop #benefit #realher #stevelaurant #makeup #skincare #skincareobsessed #skincarejunkie #lipstick #beauty #beautycommunity #beautyblog #blog #bblogger #bbloggersca #30plusblogs #discoverunder1k #discoverunder5k #canadianblogger #canadianbeauty #instabeauty #instablogger #beautygram #beautyaddict #wakeupandmakeup #flatlay #beautyflatlay #slaytheflatlay

The advent calendar I bought from LookFantastic (more photos and probably a blog post will come on this!):

Serious question. How am I supposed to wait until December 1st to open this?! 🤔 I never expected to receive my LookFantastic "Beauty in Wonderland" Advent Calendar so soon! The temptation is real. 😂 ・・・ Have you indulged in any beauty advent calendars this year? Any that you're thinking of buying? . . . . . #adventcalendar #beautyadventcalendar #lookfantastic #wonderland #beautyinwonderland #aliceinwonderland #skincare #skincareobsessed #skincareaddict #makeup #beauty #beautycommunity #beautyblog #blog #bblogger #bbloggersca #30plusblogs #discoverunder1k #discoverunder5k #canadianblogger #canadianbeauty #instabeauty #instablogger #beautygram #beautyaddict #wakeupandmakeup #flatlay #beautyflatlay #slaytheflatlay

My travel bag from this weekend:

Well, I never claimed to travel light… 😅 This is my travel bag for this weekend! I'm visiting my sister and nephew for his birthday party! 🎉 ・・・ I always feel like I'm going to need more than I actually do and I try to bring small sized items if I can. ・・・ What are your travel musts? . . . . . #travelessentials #travelfavourites #travelbag #travelsize #makeupbag #makeup #skincare #skincareroutine #skincareobsessed #skincarejunkie #beauty #beautycommunity #beautyblog #blog #bblogger #bbloggersca #30plusblogs #discoverunder1k #discoverunder5k #canadianblogger #canadianbeauty #instabeauty #instablogger #beautygram #beautyaddict #wakeupandmakeup #flatlay #beautyflatlay #slaytheflatlay #fallvibes

Selfie playing around with the Sultry palette from Smashbox (review coming soon):

Totally not feeling well. So here is a selfie from when I was playing around with the Smashbox Cover Shot Sultry palette the other day. I have Barely There from Wander Beauty on the lips! @smashboxcanada @wander_beauty ・・・ I'm back from my trip but my son had a fever all weekend and I think I am coming down with something now so "Burlesque" in bed it is. 🤒 ・・・ Anyone else feel like all "nude" lipsticks show up anything but nude on their lips? 😅 . . . . . #selfiesunday #selfie #motd #makeupoftheday #smashbox #smashboxcovershot #covershotsultry #wanderbeauty #wanderbeautylipstick #makeup #beauty #beautycommunity #beautyblog #blog #bblogger #bbloggersca #30plusblogs #discoverunder1k #discoverunder5k #canadianblogger #canadianbeauty #instabeauty #instablogger #beautygram #beautyaddict #wakeupandmakeup #flatlay #beautyflatlay #slaytheflatlay

  1. You look gorgeous! And, two separate blogs of mine were copied by a website in France! I haven’t done anything yet, but there are things that you can do, such as sending them a letter. Google copied blogs and there’s examples of what you can do! Isn’t it horrible? I wonder if it was the same site?

  2. That is so crazy that someone did that! Seems like a whole lot of work for nothing. Your blog is certainly valuable, but to other people??? I hope you feel better soon!

    1. Although I did just see today that someone has put my Fenty Beauty Galaxy Lipgloss post on their blog and linked it to mine… It’s some sort of SEO website.. I’m just ignoring it for now I guess.

      1. That is weird for sure! People should ask permission before taking work. At the very least they are not claiming it as theirs but it could affect the views on your own post. I hope not!

    1. I hope so. I haven’t heard back from the web host and there is no contact on the website that copied because it’s my contacts they have on there lol.
      Hopefully he’s better soon. The doctor thinks strep so we’re waiting for test results!

  3. Wow, the fact someone copied your whole blog is so surprising to me. It never occurred to me that people would do that kind of thing. Pretty naive of me I guess. Now you’ve got me thinking, how did you find out that they had copied your blog?
    Anyway I hope that you’re able to get them to take it down.

    1. I had a weird link in my referrers that I had never seen before so I clicked on it and there it was! So crazy! It’s one of those things that you hear about but don’t expect to happen.
