Sondeflor Classic Dress Review

Recently I purchased one of Sondeflor‘s gorgeous linen dresses after seeing them on Instagram and falling in love. The Peter Pan collars, the swooshy skirts, the class of it all! I only splurged out on one because I needed a dress to wear to my brother’s wedding. I figured it’s worth the extra expense since it’s for such a special occasion. Plus, it’s made of linen, by a sustainably-conscious brand, and as long as I treat it right it should last a lifetime. However, it’s still quite the investment, and I wasn’t 100% sure it would be worth it. So, for any of you out there who are in a similar position: here is my comprehensive Sondeflor Classic Dress Review.

Alex Steinherr Primark Range Review

Alex Steinherr Primark Review: Maximum Moisture Cream and Sleep Spa Eye Mask

Processed with VSCO with e2 preset

‘ll admit I didn’t really know who Alex Steinherr was, apart from the fact that she’s pals with Estee Lalonde. In fact, I wouldn’t have known about this range if it weren’t for Instagram. So, full thanks to Estee for helping me discover my new FAVOURITE skincare products because I am blown away! I first heard about them on Instagram, and people were commenting on the photo asking things like “are these products vegan?” And “do you test on animals?” And I thought cmon guys, don’t get your hopes up, it’s a Primark range. Well, jokes on me because they are both vegan, and animal testing-free! I didn’t think those things were possible for such an affordable range, but that just goes to show. So, here is my Alex Steinherr Primark Review. …

Budget Beauty Guide to L'Occitane

Processed with VSCO with kg1 preset
L’Occitane is one of my all time favourite beauty brands. They have products in every price range, they have a long and positive relationship with their buyers, and they make all of their products with care in France. This article already sounds like it’s sponsored but I promise it’s not! If I WAS sponsored by L’Occitane, I’d be screaming it from the hilltops. Sigh, a girl can dream. I’ve been buying from L’Occitane for a few years now, so I thought I would share with you a little guide to their best products on a budget….

Cuba Travels | Thunder Bay to Havana to Viñales

Hola amigas! I’m sure by now you VERY well know that I was recently on a trip to Cuba, aka one of the BEST things I’ve ever done. I was seriously already mentally planning my trip back when we were driving around the island. I initially planned on doing a LOT of filming while I was there but a big ol’ whack in the face of anxiety at the beginning of my trip put me off, and once I was back up to normal I was just to enamoured with the place to be bothered – sorry! I DID manage to vlog pretty much the whole time, I knew I would kick myself afterwards if I hadn’t. This is my FIRST Cuba Vlog, where I’m traveling from home (Thunder Bay) to Havana, spending the night there, and then going to Viñales. For a LOT of traveling, I still think it’s pretty good! Most of what you see here is Old Havana and our tour around the Viñales Valley – GORGEOUS place. It NEEDS to be on your Bucket List.

 
I’m proud of the editing but I JUST discovered that you can use VSCO to edit videos now, so I’ll FINALLY have some colour gradient editing on the upcoming Cuba vlogs! If you’re interested in travelling off the beaten path in Cuba, here’s an article I wrote called ‘Beyond the Beaches: A guide to exploring off-resort Cuba‘.

Maybelline Un-Nude Liquid Matte Lipsticks

Full Disclosure: These products were sent to me free for review. All opinions remain to be my own.
Processed with VSCO with f2 preset
I was SO flattered to receive these lipsticks in the mail! I have never received any products completely out of the blue like this before so I was really surprised and of course excited to try these. I wasn’t sure what to expect – I’m always a little hesitant when I receive a product for free. Mostly I’m thinking along the lines of ‘if they’re sending it to ME for free with no strings attached how good can it really be?!’ And that’s really just my own self-doubt kicking in, isn’t it? A lot of my favourite products are by Maybelline, but I have to say I’ve never been overly impressed by any drugstore lip products recently – enter the Maybelline Stay Matte Ink, Un-Nude style.

NYX Tinted Brow Mascara | Review

 
Processed with VSCO with f2 presetIn the past I have sworn by my NARS brow gel, but recently I’ve been on the hunt for a more affordable option since I use it SO much. The NYX Brow Mascara has been recommended to me by a few people, and the only one that I can seem to find on the drugstore shelves lately. I haven’t tries ANY other NYX products before this one, so buckle up.
