IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream Review

Thursday 31 August 2017

it cosmetics cc cream

I've been an ipsy Glam Bag subscriber for quite a while, and I was always delighted when I would be lucky enough to get a product from IT Cosmetics. Up until very recently beauty lovers couldn't purchase IT anywhere in Canada. Well, august has been a pretty great month for a number of reasons, including the fact that Sephora started to carry IT. More than that... Sephora CANADA started to carry IT. Now if only we could get Lorac in Canada and I would be all set!

guerlain bronzer review

When I think about Guerlain two thoughts come to mind: effortless bronze beauty, and one of my all time favourite scents, La Petite Robe Noire. This French perfume and cosmetics brand is among the oldest in the world. Today I am reviewing two of their summer 2017 releases: the Terracotta Sun Trio Bronzing Contour Palette and the Terracotta Bronzing Powder.

EOS | More Than Just Lip Balm

Thursday 17 August 2017

EOS brand review

EOS (Evolution of Smooth) made a name for themselves with their popular lip balm spheres. Simply twist off the cap, apply the balm from the nub, and put the cap back on. I love how easy they are to find in my purse thanks to their unique shape -- and their affordable price point doesn't hurt. They even inspired a whole range of DIY products using their empty containers! However, you may not know that EOS actually makes some other pretty great personal care products.

Barcelona City Guide | Barcelona in 3 Days

Tuesday 15 August 2017


barcelona 3 day city guide

I recently got back from probably the best vacation I will ever get to go on in my life. I had the chance to visit so many cities that I had always dreamed of visiting, and one of those places was Barcelona! I've felt a desire to go there for the last few years. Something about tapas, the beach, and warm sunny weather just really pulled me in.

what is a lash perm

Every now and again I get an opportunity to do something unexpected through my blog. I actually really enjoy getting to try new beauty services that I wouldn't otherwise in the name of blogging science: waxes, medical facials, and today, lash lifts.

As a blogger there is absolutely nothing cooler than getting the chance to work with a brand that you loved before you are a blogger. Caudalie is one of my favourite skincare brands and this spring they launched a new serum, eye cream and moisturiser under the VINE [ACTIV] line.  

A Beautiful Afternoon In Covent Garden | Sassoon & Charlotte Tilbury

Friday 11 August 2017

convet garden london

There are some neighbourhoods across the world that are so iconic that you just know them. You just know that they are perfection. You just know that when you're in town you simply must stop by. SoHo in New York, Beverly Hills in LA, and Covent Garden in London. While I was somewhat aware of Covent Garden for a while, it became a must see spot when I learned that Charlotte Tilbury has has flagship store there.

The Jay Hotel by Happy Culture | Nice, France

the jay hotel nice review

My needs when it comes to a hotel are pretty basic. Clean, comfortable bed. Easy enough to check in and out of. Honestly I am in town to experience what the city has to offer, not to stay in my room. That being said... when the room is really comfortable, leaving it can be kind of hard. Keep reading to learn about my experience at the Hotel Jay in Nice, France.
