New At The Body Shop: Fuji Green Tea

Saturday, 23 May 2015


Lately The Body Shop has been releasing some exceptional new and limited edition scents.  While I am not the biggest fan of their "classic" scents (here's looking at you, Strawberry), I have been really impressed by their new(ish) releases including Honeymania and Smokey Poppy.  Fuji Green Tea is no exception.

Caudalie Vinosource Moisture Sorbet Review

Monday, 11 May 2015


I was first introduced to Caudalie earlier this fall at a Sephora VIB Rouge event where I got to meet one of the brand founders, eat some yummy cheese, drink French wine, and get a mini facial.  In that process I was introduced to this moisturizer, and it has been a staple ever since! I have gone through three or four tubes of this product, and with summer on the way, it is safe to say that I will be keeping this in my skin care routine.

Mothers' Day is that one special day every year to celebrate moms and the women who teach us, inspire us, and help us grow.  Every mother's day I celebrate my Mom and my grandmas.  I try to find them something special that they will love, but that doesn't mean finding the perfect gift is easy!  Keep reading for my top picks for Mother's Day Gifts...oh and PS.  Mother's Day is Sunday, as in tomorrow, so if you haven't yet picked out something special you should get on that!

Spring is finally here, flowers are blooming, and my exams are done!  I was feeling a touch of creativity this week and thought I would venture into the world of nail art once again.  For a girl whose specialities include lines, dots, and glitter tips, attempting to make flowers was a challenge.  Keep reading for my fun, less than perfect results!

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara: Review

Wednesday, 6 May 2015


Growing up I was all about Maybelline Great Lash mascara, but as my make-up horizons expanded so did my mascara horizons.  Now it seems that everybody has some new gimmick to make your lashes fuller, longer, more curled, you get the picture.  In full disclosure my favourite mascaras tend to have "wet" formulas and huge fluffy brushes (think Make Up Forever Smokey Extravagant Lash).  All things considered I was sceptical about this mascara.  My biggest question was if this mascara was worth they hype.  Keep reading to see what I thought about this (beautiful) (retro) product!

Sephora Pro Collection: Brushes 56, 79, 73

Tuesday, 5 May 2015


(Sorry I have been a little tiny bit MIA-- life has gotten busy!  And I have something very exciting to share with you so keep on coming by for more information about my very first give away, my upcoming European travel, and my birthday haul!)

If good skin is the best foundation for make-up, then good brushes are the best tools to apply it with.  During the Sephora sale I picked up some new brushes that have quickly become a part of my every day routine!  There's something about a handful of quality brushes that just makes make-up application so fun.  And really, the process is just as enjoyable as the result!
