LAST MINUTE GIFT GUIDE

Still Christmas shopping? Then this last minute gift guide is for you! Listen, I’m not judging, usually I’m super organized and get all my Christmas shopping done early on, but I’ve been crazy busy with both my full time job & the blog, so I still have a few people to check off my list! In other words, I feel ya chix! Knowing that sometimes it’s hard to brainstorm gift ideas, I wanted to land a hand and help you pick something amazing for that special someone in your life, be it your mom, sister, cousin, or girlfriend with a…

A SEPHORA CHRISTMAS

This year, it’s going to be a Sephora Christmas! I don’t know about you, but my favourite part about the Holidays is spending time with family & friends and seeing their happy faces as they unwrap the gifts I got for them! I must admit that whenever Sephora is involved, there is always a smile that follows! Each year, Sephora pulls off a stunning SC Limited Edition Holiday Collection – great fun packaging & quality products at affordable prices, and this year is no different! Christmas 2019 theme is ‘Frosted’ – it features adorable white and mint green packaging with…

MY CHARLOTTE TILBURY FAVOURITES

There is nothing better than a good beauty recommendation, which is why I decided to share my Charlotte Tilbury favourites just in time for the holidays so that you can stuff those stockings with nothing but the best! |AD I discovered the brand over a year ago by trying out some of their lipsticks & I fell in love. They smelled amazing and they hydrated my lips perfectly while making them look plump and perfectly coloured. I knew there and then that this was a brand to know! Below is a roundup of the products that are part of my…

BEAUTY INVESTMENT: DIOR

Throughout the years, I’ve tried A LOT of products (both good and bad) and realized that a beauty investment : Dior being one of my favourites, is worth the splurge! Two years ago, I received a Dior limited edition palette for Christmas from my sister – we have a special bond my sister & I, we always tell each other what we want as gifts. Sure, it takes away a bit of mystery and fun but we always end up so happy with what we get! When I saw this gorgeous palette, it had to be mine – it had…

HOW TO WEAR EXTENSIONS WITH SHORT HAIR

I’ve always had fine & thin hair and keeping it long wasn’t really doing anything for me, therefore on recommendation from my hairdresser, I faced my fear & cut it short to create more volume. Surprisingly, I fell in love with the cut – it frames my face nicely & it’s low maintenance, which is great since I have a really busy schedule. However, I’ve been missing having long hair and my sister’s wedding was coming up so I decided to give Luxy hair extensions a try. I was a little worried about whether I would be able to blend…

SELF CARE

Meditation: At the beginning of the year, I was invited to an event hosted by Shoppers Drug Mart with a focus on “getting a routine that gets you”, during which we got to do a couple of workshops focused on self care. It was the perfect way to start the New Year, but I’m usually terrible with resolutions, so I only started applying some of these valuable lessons in the past couple of weeks. Better late then never, and never too late to start ;) So I decided to finally take the time to pass on the wisdom that was…

REVERSA SAVED MY SKIN

You read that correctly, Reversa saved my skin! For as long as I can remember, I always had good skin (aside from those awkward teenage years where some acne decided to appear on my face, but it was gone as soon as it came)! Then, something happened. **Personal story alert**  A few months ago, I had stopped taking the birth control pill. Now, before you jump the gun and start making assumptions, let me explain! I’m not planning on a baby anytime soon, but it’s been years that I have been on the pill and I just really wanted to…
