Holiday 2016 Releases To Write Home About…

Every year, before summer is even fully given a chance to end, whispers and sneak peeks of holiday releases bombard the beauty community. Every year, without fail, starting from the end of August leading up to December is filled with release upon release. By October it starts to get almost overwhelming and impossible to keep…

Birchbox Blows Me Away..Finally!

The moment has finally come. After months of the same dreaded outcome; I’ve finally been surprised. With the unboxing of this month’s Ipsy, it was pretty evident that the outcome would be the same as always- WRONG! I can’t really believe I’m writing this, Ipsy’s bag was honestly even better than any of the previous…

Rose Gold is A Girl’s Best Friend…

Let’s have a little experiment. If you have a beauty-dedicated Instagram as I do, open it up right now. Check your explore page or even your timeline. Give it a couple of scrolls. There it is; that aesthetically pleasing gold-flecked liquid. Slathered across lips, pumped onto a beauty blender, smoothed all over a makeup-free face;…

Ipsy September 2016 Unboxing

We have a little switch-eroo this week with Ipsy coming first! I wonder if this will switch things up with the final verdict too! As you know, (or at least I like to think there’s some elusive you that’s in this with me) Ipsy has beat Birchbox out easily over the past few months, but…

It’s Not You It’s Me: Too Faced Selfie Powders…

Selfies have seriously grown to be one of the biggest identifiers of millennials. I honestly wonder if any of us will outlive the age of the selfie. I’m not complaining, I’ve definitely fallen victim to a camera roll spammed with 40 takes of the same selfie. So, naturally when Too Faced released their selfie powders…

Just Say Yes!

Millions of iPhone camera rolls have been jam-packed full of sheet mask selfies over the past year. They’ve definitely made their stamp on the beauty world. From hybrid ones to tissue ones to gel ones, sheet masks are so so in. I, myself am seriously guilty of falling victim to this hype. I don’t even…

With a Little Help From My Friends…

The moment is finally here. There is a slight chance that I’m over-dramatizing this- but then again there’s a chance of that with every one of my blog posts, let’s be real. If you follow me on Instagram or read my last post, I’m sure you’ve also been excited- try adding 3 months to that…

My Favourite Month’s Favourites…

I love my birthday. I’m definitely not one to beat around the bush or act all shy about it; certainly not the type that avoids bringing up their birthday or hates surprises. I’m all about my birthday and the bigger the better!! Considering this, I assumed the month of my birthday would be my favourite…

Spritz of Summer..

Doesn’t that just sound refreshing and hydrating before even reading further? If not, let’s just play along and pretend my title has had it’s desired effect… With summer coming to an end, while heartbreak ensues, I prefer to look back on it fondly. In the world of beauty, summer screams hydration, glow and dewiness; so…

Birchbox Bust Strikes Again- P.s. The b**** is back…

After my diagnosis of a “birchbox bust” last month, my expectations were definitely lowered and unfortunately this month’s box didn’t do a great job of changing that! This month’s box was set up to fail for me personally; “this month is all about hair!” As I’ve mentioned many times here, I don’t tend to get…
