I'm Back! | My Trip To California

Sunday 29 May 2016


Hey everybody!  I'm back! This morning at 6:50 AM I landed at Pearson airport in Toronto, went home, and went straight to sleep.  I've got lots of posts to catch up on, and will be doing some more in depth posts on my recent trip to California, including some travel related posts, my Colourpop haul and probably some of the packing mistakes I made.  In the mean time I just wanted to share some of my favourite photos I took, and tell you a bit about what I did!

Beauty Lovers Tag!

beauty lovers tag

I was reading Trysh's blog the other day and came across "The Beauty Lovers Tag" and in the name of a lazy afternoon I figured why not!  I love tag posts because they're just fun, and easy, and I mean I get to talk more about makeup.

I'm Hosting A Makeup Geek Giveaway on Instagram

Wednesday 11 May 2016


Hey beautifuls!  I just wanted to give you a quick update... I am co-hosting a loop giveaway on Instagram this week!  Full details are on the photo.  Head on over to my account (@alanna.victoria) to enter!

The prize? A large Z-Palette filled with 24 Makeup Geek eyeshadows, each seletced by a co-host! By the time I decided, two of my three favourites were already picked: Twilight and Mermaid.  So, I decided to include Duchess, a beautiful matte purple that is so lovely in the crease!

Good luck <3

What's In My Z-Palette?


sephora z palette

Last month I was going through some of my make-up and I came across my smaller Z-Palette. Between moving and the general business of life this some how just ended up in the back of my collection.  I am so happy to have it back out for summer, and thought I would share with you what I keep in her, because I know I am nosey enough to want to know what others keep in theirs!
