Haul | Crown Brush... 2012 haul... but posting in 2015. Shame on me.

All right. So I have a pretty decent backlog of product reviews and blog post that I never got to... In reality some of them, I don't even remember what I thought of the products so the post is irrelevant. Way to go Sam! Woot-Woot.

So.... 3 years ago I bought a set of brushes from Crown Brush. I bought them because I wanted synthetic brushes... I thought they would be better for my very irritated face. 

Just to let you know these photos are from 3 years ago.

I don't remember what they are called.... so I will invent some names (Left to Right):
1. Flirty blush brush
2. Pack-it-on brush
3. Obviously a blending brush
4. Pencil Brush?

Honestly, I lost this brush. No idea where it is. I do however remember this brush scrapping my eyelids off... Just kidding, I found it to be a little rough on my lids.

Here's a close up of the blush brush. Unfortunately, this brush didn't even last the year... it disassembled. I was not impressed at all. Also, I wouldn't really call this a blush brush it was more like a diffusing brush. I love wearing pretty heavy blush most days and this brush gave a very subtle look. Would I buy it again? No.

Surprisingly I do still have this brush and I do use it faithfully. I use it to pack on eye shadow and do a preliminary blend. It's soft to the touch but firm enough to pack products on correctly. Now that I'm writing this post I think I should buy myself a new one... Do I need it? No. Has that ever stopped me from buying something? No. I will need to run my shopping plans by Mr. B... :)

I purchased a similar brush from MAC and was extremely disappointed. It always shed. This one is awesome. I mainly use this brush for blending. I've used it for concealer before by frankly I rather use my finger. I have too many wrinkles. If ever I've used it to place powder it just landed everywhere... Would I buy another one? Hell, ya.

Oooo, look mystery brush Number 5. I think it was a pencil brush and if your wondering yes I did lose this one too. From what I recall, it was also abrasive and I wouldn't buy it again.

Anyway, pretty bees. I will let you go. Not sure if this post was helpful or not.

What are you favourite brushes?

Baby Katie | Being a Mom

On October 6th, 2014 my fur-baby was born.
Katie is a pure bred Great Dane. She is out of Arthur (Sir Arthur Of Dantry) and Hannah (CH Dantrydanes I Luv Ya).

She is the cutest and clumsiest thing I've ever seen.

Originally, Mr. B wanted a German Sheppard... His reason was that they are amazing dogs if you train them properly.

Anyway, we started visiting kennels in July. It made sense to us at the time to get on a waiting list because we had just signed to build our cute little house. We visited a couple German Shepard kennels and accidentally met a gorgeous Great Dane. Mr. B was surprised at how affectionate the Dane was. It was at that moment he changed his tune and agreed we should look at buying a Great Dane.

When we started the Great Dane search we checked out a couple breeders around our area and decided to buy a dog from Dantry Danes. Dantry produces blacks, blue fawns, and blues. We decided to go with black because there wasn't a waiting list.

When Dantry contacted us about a new litter of two female black puppies we were overjoyed. Now, when I first met Katie.... Honestly, I wasn't that impressed with her attitude. She was a little stubborn and unaffectionate but I think that's just her being a puppy and extremely distractable.

We've had Katie in our lives for almost a year and yes it's been hard but fun. She is kind of like a snobby kid. She shows affection, to her parents, when she feels like it. When she's not in the mood for cuddling she will literally get up and move to a new location and blow air out of she jowls.

Between myself and Mr. B, she definitely prefers dad. She loves men.

Anyway, I'll let you go.... I'm off to bed.
