Ingrid’s Weekly Recap & My Love List


Happy Sunday my lovelies, I hope you had a fantastic week. I had the week off so I’ve been hiking in the woods each and everyday day, finding new trails to go with my girl, my 9-year old Cane Corso. After the sudden deaths of both her brother and sister, she needed (and still needs) some TLC and a week in the country is just what the doctor ordered… As we walked among the trees, we found a beautiful little spot where someone built bird feeders and a small shelter. BeardMan, who seems to attract birds from all kind (they literally grab seeds in his hands), bought us a big bag of seeds for our Black-Capped Chickadees, and we made it our daily routine to go and feed those little creatures.

Project’s Recap so far…

I was kind of relieve that the project came to an end as I was getting bored using these 10 products almost exclusively. For a while now, I was glimpsing to all my other products with envy, virtually cheating and creating new looks in my head. Next Monday, we will publish our big recap for the whole project…

5 Beginners Tips To Become A Successful Beauty Blogger

This is my proudest post to date. I also need to sit down and think hard on how I want my blog to evolve since I have to admit that, across my 2-year blogging adventure, my vision somehow changed along the way and I need to tweak a few things!

♥ My Favorite YouTube Videos Of The Week ♥

Best Lenses For YouTube | YouTube 101

from Madison Miller

Madison has produced a whole series on what it takes to make great YouTube videos; this one focused on lenses but she already did “How to grow your Channel”, “How to make Money on YouTube”, “YouTube Networks” & “Best Cameras”! I guess it’s safe to say that there is a good chance you will see one of my videos one day and there is a good chance that it won’t be about beauty !

♥ Most Exciting New Product Of The Week ♥

Benefit Cheekathon Blush & Bronzer Palette

All 5 products in this palette are Full Size. For 75$🇨🇦 (Value at 188$), it’s definitely a deal for this Week’s VIB Sale. If you don’t own any of these blushes and bronzer (Dandelion, Hoola, Rockateur, Dallas & Coralista), this should be very tempting, just saying! 😉

This week, every time I walked in the woods, I was contemplating nature’s beauty. Look at these wonderful pictures and imagine my reaction..

This is a similar Woodpecker that I saw flying away when he saw…

  1. My husband says go with the 80D! He says it’s got a bunch of upgrades that makes it worth the splurge! I’ve watched Madison’s videos in the past but she was too bubbly for me (I’m a jerk, I know). All the ones you listed sound super helpful though so I’m going to have to stop back over there!

    1. I just wanted to tell you that I got a sample of the Formula X “The Fix” and it’s just ok !!!
      The pink tint that I was hoping for is not there at all 😦


  2. I really love your weekly update as it gives me time to catch up on posts that I missed (been so busy lately) and that woodpecker is maD serious huh! Also the YouTube vid sounds cool for newbies you wants to expand to YouTube.. I find doing a YouTube is much easier than blogging especially the editing piece but blogging is more in-depth especially when it comes to product reviews. Great post as always Girl!! Happy Sunday to you..😍

    1. Thanks sweetie! 😘 I wish all my favorite bloggers would do a weekly update ! 😉 😉
      YT brings way more possibilities … Beauty Blogging is a little frustrating after a while … PR are asking for the moon to send you a shampoo :/
      I need to learn how to edit … Do you use iMovie ???

  3. Are you considering getting a canine companion for Corso? I want to pet her! That’s a beautiful shot of the chickadee. 🙂 And wow, that woodpecker is going to chop that down tree!
    I have absolutely NO interest in doing YT videos – I know lots of bloggers aspire to do that but it just doesn’t appeal to me for some reason. :/
    Oh I haven’t read your review of the Viseart brow palette yet! Off to read… Happy Sunday!

      1. If my goal was to pursue a “beauty career” , I would make only french YT videos !!! The french market is not as saturated.
        Beauty Blogging is for fun … I just read yesterday that more than 85% of Beauty Bloggers won’t make more than 200$ in their blogging adventure! Ouch!!!😁

      2. Ooh yes, the French market is definitely under represented! I used to watch Jean Francois but then he switched more and more to French only videos and I couldn’t understand him! 😋

      3. My friend’s daughter just started a YT French (mainly vlogs) channel 4 months ago and she already have 2000 + followers & she just signed with an agency for a one year representation (Paris & New-York trips included) !!!
        Some VERY ordinary French YouTubers are making it really big … in the English market they would be “a nobody”…

      4. Is that what you ultimately want? 🙂 I just like being behind the scenes, I don’t even go to blogger events. Cat has been pushing me to attend but it’s not my thing! I like the anonymity! 😉

      5. Even if I wanted to go, nothing is happening in Quebec 😛
        What a nice trio you would make : Cat, Dave Lackie & you 🙂 … and you could tweet about it (over & over)… just saying !!! 😜

    1. If my living situation was different, I would have already rescued another doggy !!! (A blind, or 3 legged one …)
      My remaining Corso is living half the time at BeardMan and half at my ex-house … Yes! for the last 5 years we’ve done joint custody of our 3 dogs … I know it’s strange but it works !!!)
