The One with the October Instagram Challenges {Week Four}

Hey guys! Welcome back! It’s the beginning of a new month so that means the end of my October Instagram challenges! I wasn’t able to finish them but I had fun creating photos on the days that I had time, anyway.

First of all, I hope everyone had a great Halloween! So many awesome costumes and makeup looks were posted on Instagram and I enjoyed seeing them all! I had to work unfortunately but my boyfriend was able to take our son out trick or treating. He was a ninja and a super cute one at that! 😉

I have a couple updates for you! The first is that my copier has taken down their stolen version of my website!! I actually never heard back from their host when I emailed them so I don’t know if they were the reason or not. However it came to be, I am glad it’s done with. Hopefully it won’t happen again and I hope none of my fellow bloggers ever have to deal with that!

Secondly, for those that remember, I was/am having some health issues. I finally got my ultrasound results and follow up doctor’s appointment last week. It basically confirmed what we already knew – that I have cysts on my ovaries – but it also showed that I have endometriosis. I’ve actually always assumed I had that because I have all the symptoms but it’s nice when a doctor can verify it so you’re not just guessing.

I’m not in as much pain as I was a few weeks ago thankfully so we’re hoping that means the cysts are shrinking and will go away on their own. I’ll have a follow up ultrasound to make sure. My only worry at this point is having a cyst rupture because that has already happened to me and it’s an incredibly shocking and intense pain that I don’t want to experience again!!

Not to make this a novel but I’m curious if anyone else has endometriosis. I know it’s actually pretty common. What are your ways of treating it? My doctor suggested the birth control pill for me which apparently helps get rid of cysts. I will also be able to skip my period which is the most painful time. She told me that I will have a hard time conceiving any more children but I am fine with that because I have my son and I wasn’t planning on having more. I know for some women this would be very devastating news and I feel for them.

Anyway, on to my Instagram photos for the week!

Day 18 of the #octoberbeautychallenge2017 is "go to eyeliner." My go-to is Kat Von D's Tattoo Liner in Trooper! @katvondbeauty ・・・ I don't wear eyeliner often but when I want to attempt a wing, after a lot of trial and error, I realized that a brush tip works best for me! That's why I like the KVD! ・・・ For me, it's lasting power isn't really all that amazing but it is my favourite because of its ease of use! ・・・ What is your favourite eyeliner? Have you tried the KVD? . . . . . #katvond #katvondtattooliner #tattooliner #eyeliner #katvondtrooper #makeupfaves #makeupfavourites #makeup #beauty #beautycommunity #beautyblog #blog #bblogger #bbloggersca #30plusblogs #discoverunder1k #discoverunder5k #canadianblogger #canadianbeauty #instabeauty #instablogger #beautygram #beautyaddict #wakeupandmakeup #flatlay #beautyflatlay #slaytheflatlay

Day 20 of the #hpskincarechallenge is "The Chosen One." What do I reach for every day?! Mascara! It's a must! ・・・ Since trying the Tarte Lights Camera Lashes mascara, I've been obsessed! It checks all my boxes – adds length and volume, fans my lashes and doesn't clump, flake or smudge! @tartecosmetics ・・・ Have you tried this mascara? What is your one product you have to use every day? . . . . . #tarte #lightscameralashes #mascara #beautyfaves #beautyfavourites #makeupfaves #makeupfavourites #makeup #beauty #beautycommunity #beautyblog #blog #bblogger #bbloggersca #30plusblogs #discoverunder1k #discoverunder5k #canadianblogger #canadianbeauty #instabeauty #instablogger #beautygram #beautyaddict #wakeupandmakeup #flatlay #beautyflatlay #slaytheflatlay

Day 22 of the #hpskincarechallenge is "Parselmouth." 🐍 Which lip product am I loving right now? Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Colour in Rosebud. Swipe left to see natural lighting swatch. ➡️ ・・・ This is such a pretty colour and it only cost me $3.49 CAD! I love how it looks on my lips. Despite its name, I find it's like any other regular lipstick that lasts until you eat or drink. It's very comfortable on the lips and now I want to try more shades! ・・・ Have you tried any lip products from Wet n Wild? 💋What were your favourites? @wetnwildbeauty . . . . . #parselmouth #wetnwild #wetnwildlipstick #affordablemakeup #drugstoremakeup #lipstick #megalastlipcolor #rosebud #harrypotterlover #makeup #beauty #beautycommunity #beautyblog #blog #bblogger #bbloggersca #30plusblogs #discoverunder1k #discoverunder5k #canadianblogger #canadianbeauty #instabeauty #instablogger #beautygram #beautyaddict #wakeupandmakeup #flatlay #beautyflatlay #slaytheflatlay

Any favourites? ・・・ Day 24 of the #octoberbeautychallenge2017 is "Fall fashion." I figured I could tie this days theme in by using my leopard print scarf as a prop. Love scarves for Fall! ❤️ . . . . . #eyecream #olehenriksen #bioderma #purlisse #origins #skincare #skincareobsessed #skincarejunkie #makeup #beauty #beautycommunity #beautyblog #blog #bblogger #bbloggersca #30plusblogs #discoverunder1k #discoverunder5k #canadianblogger #canadianbeauty #instabeauty #instablogger #beautygram #beautyaddict #wakeupandmakeup #flatlay #beautyflatlay #slaytheflatlay

That’s all! You can tell when I’m working a lot because I can’t participate in the challenges as much as I would love to. For November, I want to think of a different title for these posts that represents the “chatty” aspect of it. But that’s just me thinking out loud.

Happy November 1st everyone! 😀
