Friday Roundup: November 3 + Insta Giveaway Series

Vancouver False Creek Seawall
Well I guess this being the first Friday Roundup of November, we can officially start mentally preparing for the holiday season. I cannot believe we are approaching the end of the year. Where did 2017 go?

Last night we popped into Crate and Barrel and they had all their holiday decorations etc out. I kind of feel that shouldn’t appear until after Remembrance Day. Then go ahead and whip out all your holiday products and décor. What is the rush?

This week was a rough one, I had a bout of insomnia and haven’t really slept all week. The struggle to get out of bed and to work has been real. I’m hoping that tonight I can relax and fall asleep for more than a few hours.

Wednesday I went and got a peel at my Glow Therapy, soooo currently my face is falling off at work haha. Slowly started yesterday and we went to the mall and half way through Curtis tells me I’m starting to flake. I’m currently carrying around face oil in my purse to replenish my skin and make it look less freaky for my colleagues and the general public haha. But I cannot wait for the results!

Also, my nightstand was sold at the Vancouver Fall Home Show! I think the winning bid was $80? All proceeds go to Habitat for Humanity and I’m pretty proud of my piece! We also took Piper for a nice walk around Olympic Village last weekend, the weather was perfect!

Our plans are to finish some home projects, get a mani (only me), visit Escents at Richmond Centre tonight for a personal shopping experience (follow my Instagram), edit videos and photos for blog posts and take some photos. Next week is a full week of content!
