DANS UN JARDIN

Regardless of the weather, feels like Spring to me! Dans un Jardin Camellia Eau de Toilette  has a light, fresh floral & citrus scent, which I noticed changes throughout the day once it blends in with my skin. I am cracking for this adorable flask with the little bow & Eiffel Tower charm – seriously how cute is that?! The look and the scent transports me back to the Jardins des Tuileries in Paris – amazing memories. Retails for $50 and is currently on sale for $35 – grab it! Dans un Jardin Camellia body cream  really complements the eau de toilette as it…

NIVEA

One of my favourite creams! Nivea is the 1st brand of creams I started using when I became a teenager and continued on using throughout my entire life. They’re soft, gentle on the skin and moisturize the skin perfectly! I was extremely excited to try out these new additions – read on to see my thoughts! Nivea Q10 plus anti-wrinkle light day cream & night cream: Well, Nivea’s done it again! Both creams feel extremely light when applied to the skin, they’re not greasy and they get absorbed very fast; as if the skin was dying of thirst for these…

CLARINS BEAUTY

Clarins love. After trying out their makeup (here) and loving it, I was super excited to try their cosmetics! And just like that, Clarins got me hooked! Read my thoughts below!  One-Step Gentle Exfoliant Cleanser: SOLD! Officially, this is my new addiction! This exfoliator is super gentle, so it’s great for everyday use and it leaves the skin soft & refreshed, leaving a natural glow! You don’t need much of this product to have perfectly exfoliated skin so it will last a long time! I have been using this for a month now and I still have over half left.…

CLARINS MAKEUP

New favourite: Clarins makeup! I heard great things about Clarins makeup line, but I never tried it; until now. The following pieces have now become part of my everyday routine and I simply can’t get enough, here is why! Clarins Rouge Eclat Lipstick: This creamy, hydrating & nourishing lipstick makes my lips feel smooth & radiant! It’s also age-defying, so it protects the lips in the process. Hands down, my favourite lipstick at the moment, especially color 26 – Rose Praline – it’s a perfect balance between light pink and nude, and it’s absolutely perfect for a neutral look! I…

EYE CANDY – MAKEUP I’M LOVING

I’m a makeup addict. I don’t like the word hoarder, I prefer: makeup collector! Yes, I had to go to Ikea last week to get a drawer unit to store my makeup palettes, nail polishes, brushes and other treasures… I love to discover & try out new things and I never leave the house without makeup or a polished nail…and FormulaX is my best friend when it comes to nails! Honestly, this is the most long lasting & fast drying nail polish I have ever used! I usually apply two coats and let it dry for about 5 minutes before…

Being a single mother is not easy, I know b/c I watched my mom work day and night to provide for my sister and me. She made sure we were fed, clothed, and had the best eduction.

She is my idol, my inspiration, a person I look up too & the reason the Lise Watier Foundation is important to me. It is my turn…
