MAC’s Face + Body Foundation | Review

f 1I first fell in love with MAC’s Face and Body foundation because it’s packaging looked so cool and professional, and I wanted to be the kind of person who owned and used that kind of makeup (guilty!). I’m not going to lie, the first time I saw it was on Perrie Edward’s Makeup Tutorial, and I commented asking what she used because (obv) she looked like a dream. A lovely fellow viewer cued me in on the Face + Body foundation (and the select cover up, there’s a review coming for that too!) and ever since it’s been on my wishlist. I’ve been using it for months now, and I think it’s about time I posted an in depth review.Β  Continue reading

Grandma’s Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe

For obvious reasons, this is my go-to pick me up cookie recipe. I love love LOVE using old recipes that have been passed down generations, it makes the baking a more intimate and meditative experience in my opinion because you (after awhile) know the recipe like the back of your hand, and you feel connected to something or someone who might not be around anymore.

Monochrome, Monochrome, Monochrome

Let me say it one more time: MONOCHROME! Monochrome – also known as all and only black and white – is a huuuuge trend in fashion for Spring. Dior (Ready to wear) and Calvin Klein (menswear) both had almost entirely monochromed runways. And now I can’t type monochrome without giggling, it’s all too much!

There are two great things about an all black and white trend – you probably already have everything you need in your closetΒ and it’s versatile enough that you can still put your own style and spin on things. Here are three monochromed looks that I put together that I think both express different aspects of my own style, and look on trend. Continue reading

Taylor Swift ‘I Don’t Wanna Live Forever’ Makeup Tutorial

Every once and awhile I like to do celebrity inspired makeup tutorials on my Youtube channel, because celebrities are 100% where I get my all my makeup inspiration. Ok – I get inspo from Youtubers too but there’s really no point in doing a video on one that’s already been done! So far I’ve done Alexa Chung and Ellie Goulding, both of whom are my go-tos in terms of every day makeup inspiration. BUT when I saw the I Don’t Wanna Live Forever video I was instantly on board with Taylor’s makeup! I’ve been keeping up with makeup trends (thanks to those snapchat stories I watch when I’m bored) and I definitely think this look is a big winner in that department. Continue reading

Spring Style | His & Hers

Today I’m working with a menswear company called Bonobos to put together some cute his and hers looks in honour of the Valentine season! Now, these looks aren’t inspired by the red and pink gooey-ness of Valentine’s day, but rather follow the Spring trends we’re seeing in menswear and womenswear. For the men’s looks, I’ve stuck strickly to Bonobo’s own brand, and for women’s, for some reason, I’ve really favoured Gap, with a few bits from Zara and Urban Outfitters. Continue reading

Blocked and Bright Stripes

b

Arguably the most popular trend across the board this season is blocked and brightly coloured stripes – particularly featuring primary colours. Everyone from RED Valentino, to Givenchy and Chloe, to Banana Republic featured bold and bright coloured stripes in their S/S 17 collections, and Elle, Vogue, and InStyle all documented the trend in their articles on Spring 2017 trends. Even if you’re not reading up on those sites – which I usually don’t except for every pre-Spring blues season – you’ve probably picked up on this trend. Continue reading
