Year in Review 2016

Welcome to 2017! How’d you spend welcoming in the New Year? A lot of people do “a year in review” at the very end of December but as you know I was re-designing my blog so I kinda ran out of time. This post is a little long so I recommend grabbing some tea and a little snack. Anyways here’s my highlights for my year in review for 2016. JANUARY I started the year off…

10 Things to Start Doing in 2017

It’s about to be 2017, and the New Year is typically the time when people usually make their New Year’s resolutions. You know those goals you stick to for the first two weeks of January and then you eventually forget about them. I’ve already done a post about tips for sticking with your New Year’s resolution so I thought it would be a fun idea to offer some suggestions of things to start doing in 2017…

12 Days of Smiles…Kinda

I was asked by Ashley a few weeks ago to take part of  ’12 Days of Smiles’. The purpose of this is to do something for 12 days that’ll bring smiles to peoples’ faces. Essentially, random acts of kindness. I won’t lie, I was hesitate to agree at first mainly because I was about to go into my finals, and then I knew I had work, and then I would be travelling to Newfoundland; but my little…

Holiday Makeup Look

I really wanted to get this post up before Christmas in case any of you have parties to attend, sorry if you’ve already finished all your parties. I love this look because it’s based on the classic holiday look of the red lip and winged eyeliner, except instead of a bright red lip I’m using a darker metallic red lip. I’ve always wanted to try metallic lips (mainly because they’ve gotten so popular during the…

Canadian Winter OOTD

I’m officially done this semester, and I’m back home with my family for the next few days. On Thursday my family and I will be heading off to Newfoundland to spend Christmas and New Years with my grandparents. I’ll still be posting when I’m gone (hopefully the wifi will be good); so you’ll have something to read during your break. I also have some really exciting things planned for the next few weeks, there will…

My Go To Winter Makeup

I recently (not actually that recently, tbh) asked all you lovely people if you wanted a go to winter makeup or a holiday look. You voted, I answered! If you follow me on twitter you can participate in polls like these more often. So here’s my go to Winter Makeup. During the winter time I typically go for a simple natural look with a lot of highlighter. Maybe it’s the snow but I love a…

Evening Skincare Routine

As promised, here’s my Evening Skincare Routine AND a second post of the week. If you haven’t read my first post, I reviewed a Canadian natural makeup brand. Today I’m showing you what I typically put on my face (and body) before I head off to bed.

Maison Jacynthe Makeup Review

Hello beautiful! It’s been awhile but school is starting to get a little less hectic as the exam season approaches. It’s insane that the year is almost done. Today I’m going to be reviewing Maison Jacynthe Makeup brand. They are a Canadian makeup brand which is located in Quebec. You know how much I love supporting local Canadian brands, so when I got approached to share with my readers this brand I couldn’t say no….

Morning Skincare Routine for Winter

It was 15 degrees a few days ago, and then I woke up yesterday with snow on the ground and outside it was -10 with the windshield. So I guess winter as abruptly arrived. I’ve noticed the past week or so my skin has already started drying up in anticipation of the cold weather. With every new season I try to change up my skincare routine, during the summer I need more oil control whereas during…

Oval Brush Set Review

I felt like one day during the summer I opened up Instagram and everyone was raving about oval brush sets. The majority were dupes of Artis Brushes (which can be pretty pricey). There are several companies out there who are selling very inexpensive brushes that look almost identical to original ones. Such as the company that mine came from. I won this brush set in a giveaway; and I posted a picture on Instagram asking if anyone wanted…
