wet n wild spring 2017

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend Wet N' Wild's event in Toronto. Not only did I get to play with some products while I was there, but I also got sent home with a pretty sweet goodie bag. Remember being a kid and going to birthday parties? And then on the way out as a thank you for coming and having a good time they would give you a bag full of stuff? Well that's what leaving felt, in the best possible way! I've had some time to test out the products, and today I am here with my curated list of favourites.

caudalie micellar water review

When it comes to skincare I have a few brands that I always keep coming back to. Caudalie is one of those brands. Straight from the vineyards of Bordeaux, France, Caudalie relies heavily on grapes for their core ingredients. Today I am talking about their micellar water.

MAC is the queen of limited edition collections. They always have one on the shelves, and another stunner about to be released. In January they released a limited edition collection of 35 bold matte lipsticks including just about every matte colour you could dream up.

benefit theyre real double the lip review

Last Christmas Benefit released a set of four mini dual-toned lipsticks. I recall being curious about them, but I didn't like that you had to buy them in a set (I was pretty much just interested in the nude shades) and I figured what would it matter if I fell in love with them-- I wouldn't be able to buy them when the holidays were over. Well lucky me! They released a full collection availiable in full size for this spring. Keep reading for my first impressions, and lip swatches!

thursday plantation essential oils

Winter is finally, finally coming to an end. I mean its still winter...but finally I can unzip my coat a bit and shed my clunky winter boots. The only problem with this time of year is its still cold out-- and my optimism about the weather can leave me not feeling my best.  I mean you go out one time when its not quite warm enough without a proper coat... and yup.

10 places I would love to travel venice

Ever since my first trip to Europe, I have suffered (enjoyed?) a sever case of wanderlust. Simply put, I was hooked on travel. I would go so far to say that I would be happy to go anywhere given the opportunity for it to be free or highly subsidised other than say, a war zone.

charlotte tilbury pillow talk valentine lipstick swatch and review

Charlotte has this way of launching lipsticks where she launches 1 or 2 at a time (I mean other than the Hot Lips collection, but that’s different!), and instantly making me want to just buy them. Just in time for Valentines Day she released two stunning pink-nudes, and I am so excited to be sharing them here with you today.

Clinique x Crayola

clinique crayola lip crayons

Brand collaborations are always interesting to see. I think the best ones are a bit unexpected, but also a natural pairing. Bonus points if you can evoke some nostalgia. While officially Crayola’s lip crayons are called “Chubby Sticks” lets be honest… everybody calls them crayons. Partnering Crayola with Clinique is smart, its fun, and it doesn’t come in to either of their market shares. I mean hey, Clinique doesn’t sell *actual* crayons.
