February 2018 Empties

Hey All!

Another month, another post about my garbage. I actually didn’t use up many products this month. Most of the ones I use are almost finished so I’m expecting so much more for the month of March.

Nonetheless, let’s get this show on the road! I’m going to do a little different format this time. Let me know how you like it!


First of all, I used up a Bath and Body Works Gentle Foaming Hand Soap in the scent Gingerbread Latte. The scent of this soap is described as ‘Warm Gingerbread, Vanilla Latte & Whipped Cream’. I enjoyed the soap and scent at first but discovered that towards the end I just can’t wait to use it up. I have one more in stash but I’m not sure if I will repurchase next Fall if this scent is released again.

I also used up one of my favorite antiperspirants/deodorants – Secret Ooh La La Lavender. This is my go to deodorant brand and scent. I’ve already repurchased it and have a back up in my stash. It isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

I also used up a Bath and Body Works Home Wallflower Fragrance Refill in the scent Mango Dragonfruit. The fragrance notes included in this scent are ‘Island Mango, Pink Dragonfruit, and Bright Mandarin’. I enjoyed this scent and would probably repurchase if it i still available.


I have also been cleaning out various areas of my home and found some products that were either expired or ones that I’ve had for a while and their time was up.

First of all, I have three different lip products. First was a Autumn Harvest Lip Balm from Avon in the scent Apple Cobbler. It still smells great but it seems to be drying up and I know I’ve had it since 2008 or earlier. It is just time to go.

The second is a Mint Lip Moisturizer that I received during my University days when I attended a career fair. It was used to promote a company trying to recruit people. This expired in 2009. I’m scared.

Finally I have an Aquafina FlavorSplash Lip Balm in the scent Wild Berry. Again I’ve had this for a while and the scent seems to be off. It is just time for it to go!

I also have a travel sized sunscreen that I found in a purse while cleaning out. I always have sunscreen with me during the Summer months so it was no surprise. This was the Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch Oil-Free Sunscreen with an SPF 30. The product worked well and I’d definitely purchase it again.

Finally I have a La Senza Body Kiss Anti-Bacteria Deep Cleansing Hand Gel in the scent Coconut Kiss. This is just a product that I don’t use so I’ll pass it on to someone who would!

And that’s it for my empties and the products I’m decluttering. It is not much but we all have months like this. The main thing is that I’m seeing a big difference in my stash and I’m enjoying using up some of the products!

Hope you all had a wonderful February. If you have an empties post for the month, leave a link in the comments. I’d love to hear about the products you’ve been using!


January 2018 Empties – Bath & Body Products

Hey all!

I’m back with part two of my empties for the month of January. Actually, some of these were probably used up before then because it has been a while since I’ve posted an empties. I took a little break from blogging because I was getting use to a new routine. Hopefully I’ll be able to add blogging into my routine again. I definitely do miss it.

But that’s not what you’re here for so let’s get into the empties!

With that being said, let’s get on into the post!

Random Empties

Hey All!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted about my empties. However, I have been taking note and keeping some of them. These are the ones that I’ve remembered to keep over the past few months. I figured I’d share and give my opinion on some of them!

Week-in-Review #2 – April 3 – April 9

Hey all!

Welcome to my second week-in-review. It hasn’t been the most interesting week to be honest. I have been suffering with a sinus infection/cold/flu/plague/something or other.

Monday left me cleaning the house because I needed to keep vertical in order to be able to breathe. Sitting or laying down (even with the lack of energy and miserableness I was feeling) wasn’t an option. I couldn’t breathe easily through my nose when I did. I felt much better on the move.. so I kept moving.

Tuesday I worked. I found it rather difficult to walk up the stairs. My legs felt really week and I came to the conclusion that I should NEED TO start exercising again. I felt so much better when I did. To be honest, that was basically the extent of my day.

Wednesday I worked again. It was the first time I was back for the teacher I had a replacement for during the Fall. It was a great day and I really enjoyed seeing them all again. I haven’t been back much because I have been subbing elsewhere as well. I had plans on going into town when I got home because I wanted to check out HMV for some Dvds. HMV has a closing sale right now as they are closing down in Canada. By the time I made it home I had all my energy gone and decided to stay in.

I didn’t work on Thursday but I was up and ready super early. I had energy and was ready to take on the day. I decided to head out to the mall like I had planned to (but didn’t do) on Wednesday. I treated myself to a Coconut Mocha Macciatio from Starbucks. This has quickly become my new favorite drink from there. From that I went to HMV and bought some goodies.


I picked up season 5 of Buffy The Vampire Slayer (my favorite show as a pre-teen/teenage), seasons 2-4 of Drop Dead Diva, The Giver, and The Night Before… all for under $30. I couldn’t turn this down. I initially went to look for the BTVS dvds I was missing to complete the series but was only able to find one. I also picked up a guitar shaped spatula and a few gifts for Christmas (a little early I know but amazing prices hahaha). I then ran some errands for my sister and brought coffee to the boyfriend before coming home. We had some visits from the Nephew that night to help him with a few things.

Friday brought me back to a school that I had only subbed in once before; for 2 hours a few Septembers back. It also brought my back to my love… Biology. I studied Biology in university and taught it about 5-6 years ago. I loved it. I only had to show some video clips in those classes but it brought me back to the beginning. Has much as I do love Science and teaching, I think becoming an IRT was the right move for me. Friday night we caught up on Riverdale and the new season of IZombie was put on Netflix and just chilled.

On Saturday we had planned on going to a Home Show and do some walking. However, the rain kept us from doing that. Instead we went to Coffee Matters and had a coffee. Then we checked out Funky Junk, a neat little store in my area. I initial went there to buy some bath bombs from St. John’s Soap Works.


I also discovered a neat paint that I am definitely going to look more into, and probably purchase, to redo my current bedroom set. It is in desperate need of painting and I feel like this would work so much better than any furniture paint I could buy at a hardware store. We then went to pick up a few things we needed for the week and some Easter treats for some people. The boyfriend ran off into the night to pretend to be a rockstar so he was pretty late getting home. So I spent the night watching 13 Reasons Why. When I first saw this circulating on line if seemed so familiar to me. Then I realized that I had randomly found the book at Value Village on one of my trips searching for books and read it.

So today, Sunday, I am still not feeling the best overall. However, I did get the rest of my cleaning done and cooked supper. I also finished up 13 Reasons Why. Excellent series!! Would definitely recommend. The daffodils I bought yesterday in support of the Canadian Cancer Society has bloomed. Aren’t they pretty!!??!!


That’s all for this week. I hope you all had an amazing week and I look forward to see what this week has in store… (my birthday, Spring Break starting, Easter). It should be a good one!

And before you go, why not take a look back on this weeks blog posts!

Trash Day: Recent Empties

Hey all,
Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. Today I’m bringing you some empties from the past few months. Hopefully I won’t have so much sitting and waiting to be reviewed  now that I’m back to blogging. I am sure there are some other products that I’ve probably used up and didn’t save. I’m still trying to use up the abundance of products that I have in my stash. The only thing I’ve been buying are the things that I run out of completely. I also think I’m going to start up my #SampledOutSaturdays again. This worked great when I focused on it before.

With that being said, let’s get into my trash!
