JACYNTHE RENE BEAUTY PRODUCTS – 100% NATURAL

I turned the dreaded big 3-0 at the end of October, and I was looking for a new beauty routine for nighttime. Like the rest of women on this planet, I’m terrified of wrinkles, even though some people still think I’m 19-21 lol! I just want to keep looking that young for a while ;) Needless to say, I welcomed Jacynthe Rene’s beauty routine with open arms, as I was intrigued by the cool apothecary look & the fact that the products are 100 % natural; no preservatives, no fragrance, no chemicals & not tested on animals! I tried the…

SEPHORA HOLIDAY GIFT SETS REVIEW

Sephora does makeup like it’s nobody’s business! It’s the 1st time I tried Sephora Collection brand eye shadows and I must admit the quality is impeccable! Not to mention the packaging – cuteness overload! But let’s back up to the beginning when I came back home from Vegas to a huge box filled with Sephora goodies to try out and review! The timing could not be more perfect since it was my bday :) and of course I felt like a kid on Christmas day opening it! Honestly, getting makeup makes a girl giddy! I had already presented some of…

ANNIE YOUNG COSMETIQUES

I admire strong, hard working women! I watched my mom raise me & my sister by herself in a foreign country, where she did not know the language yet provided for us nevertheless, making sure we are fed, clothed & got the best education. She also taught us an amazing set of values; be kind, be independent, be strong, be humble. In my eyes she is a hero, an idol, someone I strive to be everyday. She, and so many other independent, strong working women are the reason I write this blog. Faith took its course a few weeks ago, when I 1st stepped…

CHRISTMAS WITH SEPHORA

So you might be thinking, oh its just November, but Christmas is not that far away! Until last year, I always got my Christmas gifts (including me to me gifts, lol) last minute and I always seem to face the same hurdles: line ups & products being out of stock (which is already the case right now with some things online)! Last year I took a stance and decide to have an early start & shop everything almost two months ahead! When I found something adorable or something I knew my family or friends (or myself….) loved or wanted to get…

SCARLET & JULIA

I had my eye on the Stila Eyes Are The Window shadow palette in Mind for some time, resisting it b/c I’m a total eye shadow palettes hoarder, but really needed to get a matte palette! Then, I received a cute little box from Scarlet & Julia with the cutest message, a lipstick USB key & a gift card to shop their online store!!! When I saw they carried this palettes, I had no trouble deciding how to spend the GC! :) Scarlet & Julia is a new online beauty boutique offering a wide array of products from brands like…

BIODERMA

I’m back from Toronto! WMCFW week was both amazing and exhausting, but more on that next week :) Today, I want to share my 1st impressions of this beauty routine from Bioderma. I received these products two weeks ago and have been using them religiously since then. I have normal skin, but whenever I can, I opt for sensitive skin products as they tend to be more gentle. This line is for sensitive skin :)  Bioderma Sensibio H2O make-up removing solution: Don’t let the clear water-like look fool you, this product is amazing for removing makeup. It’s odorless, gentle on the eyes, no oil…
