NARS Wanted Palette Review

25115086_10155932956088493_1727861003_n

I’ve been on the hunt for an excellent peachy toned eyeshadow palette for awhile now. I didn’t want to buy the really popular ones like the Too Faced Sweet Peach or Kylie Cosmetics because they either had colours I didn’t like, or I’ve been disappointed by their palettes before (whoops)! When Nars announced the Wanted palette I was instantly hooked. Luckily there was a VIB sale at Sephora right when it dropped so I got it with $20 off!! SO HAPPY. Now let’s see if it lives up to all my hopes and dreams… Continue reading

A Beginner’s Holiday Nails!

I’m definitely still a beginner when it comes to doing my nails. No matter how hard I try, I just never have the patience or stillness to do them nicely, but I still love to have them done! I think it looks so professional and fancy when you’ve got nail polish on, but my nails are really brittle so if it’s not shellac it’s going to start peeling or chipping REALLY fast. Here are my holiday nails, which have a solution to every one of my problems 🙂 Continue reading

Tips and Tricks for the Best Matte Lips

Matte lips have been in for awhile now, from Taylor Swift’s iconic red lip to the craze around ColourPop and Kylie’s Matte Lip Kits they’ve proven they’re here to stay. Before the days of lip kits and liquid matte lipstick, and before I had any kind of disposable income to spend on those products I had to develop my own more crafty ways to get a matte lip.

VLOG: Trinity Bellwoods and Tattoos

I know it’s technically blogmas but hear me out okay! This is a video I made from my trip to Toronto back in October and it’s really cute and makes me laugh a lot so I wanted to share it with you.

It shows some of my favourite places in Toronto and has a lil bit of the Harry Styles concert, a lil bit of a tattoo and so many other funny memories!

Moments Behind the Blog Day 6:

Behind this video specifically: when we were at Screemers (a haunted fair) and we went into the very first haunted house the very first scare scared my friend SO BADLY that she jumped fully into the air. We were linked at our arms and she fully jumped with her feet out to the side to defend herself. It killed me and I spent the rest of the walk through just dying with laughter instead of being scared by things, it still makes me laugh.

Your question of the day: Have you ever been to Toronto? Have you been anywhere in Canada?! Thoughts?

Review | L’Occitane Shea Light Face Cream

L’Occitane’s Shea Light Face Cream (5%) is my FAVOURITE face cream for the winter months. I actually had to go back and check that I hadn’t reviewed this product already because it SHOCKS me that it’s not on here yet! This is my holy grail moisturizer. I have combination skin, but it’s reaaaally sensitive so I usually get dry patches and eczema spots on my face in the colder, drier winter months. Conversely, if I use a heavier face cream my face gets really oily feeling throughout the day, and my makeup just melts right off. My solution? L’Occitane’s Shea (light) Face Cream.
