Holiday Gift Guides – Your Ultimate Guide

Hello my lovely people! Long time no talk. Why haven’t I posted in months? School, work, and life. However, I really wanted to share some holiday gift guides for the people on your list. I tried to keep the price range on these gifts to average-ish (aka very little designer products). *There are affiliate links included in this post! Thank you for supporting Beauty by Catherine Gift Guide for the Home Lover Gift Guide for…

Givenchy Noir Interdit Mascara Review

Let’s talk about mascaras. I’ve always been someone who loves voluminous lashes, but I’m not willing to pay $30+ for a mascara that would give me this effect. So when I was offered to review Givenchy’s new Noir Interdit mascara I was a little hesitate. It’s $38 which is a little more expensive than I would pay for a mascara, and what if it’s nothing special? I typically settle on the $5-$8 ones from the…

I Think I Have Writer’s Block

I think I’ve tried to write this out like 10 times, but every time I start typing I get overwhelmed and delete it. There’s no reason for the hesitation, it’s not like I’m about to confess to a crime or something. I just don’t feel confident in the words I’m typing. Which leads me to this post: writer’s block. I know, it’s paradoxical post because I’m writing about having writer’s block. But my brain is…

Spring Makeup

Oh hey. Long time no talk. Long story short to why you haven’t been seeing me pop up in your inbox with a new post is because I wasn’t motivated to write one. I actually had this post ready to go a few weeks ago, I just couldn’t get myself to write it. Now that summer is literally in a few days (and I’m feeling better) I thought I should finally post my Spring makeup…

Smashbox CC Cream First Impressions

Happy Monday my beautiful friends. Today I’m chatting about the Smashbox CC cream. I purchased the product about a week ago, and honestly I haven’t worn it too much. Not because I don’t like it, but I just haven’t been wearing makeup. Which is why I was on the hunt for a product like this. My usual foundation, Urban Decay’s Naked, was on it’s last legs and I was either going to fork over the $50 for…

Arbonne Review

One of my blogging friends, Jordyn, recently joined Arbonne. I heard of this brand before about a year or so ago but I’ve never bought anything from it. Jordyn got in touch with me one day and she asked if I wanted to try out some samples of their products. I obviously accepted because it was a great way for me to try out some of their products because this is more of an expensive brand….

Lazy Sundays | Chapter 3

The past few months I’ve been a little distant, but I’m happy to say I’m finally back and I mean it this time. In April I had to focus on my final exams, and then at the end of the month I moved out of a house. I’ll explain more later about moving out, but I’m excited to start this new chapter in my life. This post will be focused on my April favourites, as I…

The Cold Shoulder Top

I bought this cold shoulder top a few weeks ago, and I had the outfit all styled in my head but when it came to actually putting in on I kept chickening out. Every time I put this shirt on there was always something wrong with it. But I really wanted to try this shirt out because it would be perfect for summer. I’ve had this happen to other items I’ve bought over the years….

Lazy Sundays | Chapter 2

I feel like I just posted my first Lazy Sundays. I haven’t posted too much this month because of school but now I’m into exam season and then I’m free for the summer! I’m planning on publishing two posts a week during the summer because I’ll have more free time. I wasn’t able to post this in the first week of April because of (surprise) school. But make sure you’re subscribed because there may be a…

When You’re Not Motivated

Everyone has those days when you just can’t get yourself to do anything on your to-do list. For me lack of motivation typically comes right in the middle of my final assignments in school (so like right about now). Instead of dwelling on the fact you aren’t going to finish those tasks, I wanted to share my tips to help when you’re not motivated. MAKE A ROUTINE I’ve been really trying to make morning and night…
