20 Facts About Myself | Get To Know Me

Hey loves,

I know it's been a while since I posted, but regular blog posts will be back up this week! (Woo) Looking for houses and getting ready to move has been very busy for me, so I'm sorry if posts get put off schedule again in the next month but I'll do my best.

Anyways, I saw a fun tag I want to do and it's the 20 facts about yourself one, so here it goes: 

1. I am a hairstylist, I love my job and I cannot imagine doing anything else. Boosting people's confidence by changing their looks, can be one of the most rewarding things in the world. 

2. I love makeup, I want to go to makeup school in Vancouver at some point in my life. We aren't at that point now, but one day! 

3. I love to read, I always have a book on the go. Currently I am reading The Longest Ride by Nicholas Sparks (yes cliche girl novel but I love it) 

4. I naturally am very blonde but I have had almost every other hair colour. The most recent is a cherry violet red which I am in love with. 

5. I love to dance. I do two step and country swing. Learning new lifts and tricks and pushing my body is so rewarding and I wouldn't have my evenings off spent doing anything else  

6. I don't like people very much, yet I picked a job where I talk to people all day long. Funny how that works. 

7. I love to cook. 

8. I used to do competitive gymnastics but I quit about 7 years ago. I would love to get back into it one day though. 

9. First impressions are everything to me. If I don't have a good first impression of a person, my opinion on them probably won't ever change. 

10. I am almost always listening to much when I am at home, and it's usually country. 

11. I still use a old school day planner to keep track of my life. I love using that so much more than my phone. 

12. Burgundy, purple, and teal are my favourite colours. 

13. I am 5 feet fall. No more, no less. 

14. I am a very sarcastic person. It can be a downfall for me. 

15. Starbucks is my one weakness 

16. I'm addicted to YouTube. One of my favourite vloggers is Thataylaa. 

17. I'm a Leo and every trait describes me to a tee. 

18. I love to travel. Peru and Costa Rica are my favourites so far. 

19. I talk in my sleep. 

20. One day I want a Pomsky. Cutest little dog ever. 

So I'm going to tag anyone who wants to do this to do it. It surprisingly a lot harder than you would think. 

Have fun lovelies,

Morning Skin Care | Routine

Hello Loves,

So today I have my morning skincare routine for you guys. These are the products I use most frequently in the morning before I apply my makeup. 

The Body Shop Tea Tree Foaming Cleanser - this cleanser is great for the morning, because it is made to combat oily skin; so I find when I use it in the morning I get less oily during the day - that's always a plus. 

Lush Tea Tree Water Toner - again I use this tea tree product to combat my oily skin, as well as acne. I haven't been using this long, but it seems to work quite well! 

Garnier Skin Renew Antipuff Eye Roller - i use this before I apply my eye cream, it helps to deal with how puffy my eyes are when I wake up (yay for being allergic to everything) I didn't see a difference when I first started using it, but over time it has helped. I quite like this product. 

Philosophy Renewed Hope in a Jar Eye - this eyecream is amazing! And going to become a staple in my skincare when the sample size I have now is done. It is very lightweight but moisturizing and helps with puffiness and fine lines around the eyes. 

Clean and Clear Dual Action Moisturizer - I love using this in the morning, it is lightweight but still moisturizing and I feel like because it is acne fighting it's working all day under my makeup with out me even knowing (yes I know that sounds crazy) this is a very great moisturizer! 

Lush Mint Julips Lip Scrub - I mentioned this in a few other blog posts as well (Lush Haul, Nighttime Skincare Routine, and February Favourites) this lip scrub is gold and everyone needs to own one. It gets all the dead skin off! 

Carmex - this is my holy grail lip balm/treatment I use it all day but I especially like to put it on after I use my Lush lip scrub because it mousturizes my lips even better! 

So anyways girls, that's what I use for skincare in the morning and little mini reviews/ explanations of why I use what products. 

Let me know if there's any products I should add in or you recommend me to try out!

Product of the Week | Review

Hey ladies,

So this week my favourite product has to be the Makeup Forever Sens'Eyes makeup remover. 

(Photo taken from Google) 

I got this product for Christmas this year and never really started using it until now, because I was working through other makeup removers. But this is amazing stuff. It is a lotion as opposed to a gel or liquid which I really like, it's also made for sensitive skin but takes off even the most stubborn waterproof or smudge proof makeup. It also doesn't really have a scent. The fact that this product can remove all my makeup and not irritate my skin is beautiful! 

To use this product I just put it on a cotton pad and the swipe it over my eyes as needed. I usually use one pump twice on each eye and that takes it all off, and then I wash my face as usual afterwards. 

At Sephora in Canada this product retails for 10$ for the travel size (1.01oz) and 24$ for the full size (3.38oz) which is not bad considering it lasts forever! 

I hope all you ladies have had a good week

February | Favourites

Hey ladies!

Here's my favourite products, music, YouTube channels and bloggers :) who's happy I am actually getting this post up the first week of March? Cause I know I am (yay for scheduled blogging) but anyways lets get to the point 

Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette - this has been one of my go to palettes this month, first of all it smells like chocolate (so what's not to love about that?) and the shadows are so buttery and blend out so easily, they are also super pigmented. This palette will always be a number one in my books! 

Maybelline Dream Wonder Foundation - I use this in the lightest shade 10 Porecelian Ivory, and it is light enough to match my skin (yay) also this foundation is so lightweight it doesn't even feel like you are putting anything on your skin, but it does have decent coverage! I've been loving this because I haven't been wearing a lot of makeup on my face this month so it's nice, because it's a super quick application and looks good regardless of what products I use on top of it or, don't use on top. It looks good either way! 

Hempz Green Tea and Asian Pear lotion- I got a sample size of this at a work conference and had to buy the regular size. The scent is so nice and light but the lotion is still super moisturizing, but I also have yet to find a Hempz lotion I do not enjoy. I almost own every scent they have... Whoops. 

Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil - I am currently loving the shade milk, I use this in my water line to brighten up my eyes when I look or feel extra tied, and it works like a charm. 

Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade - I use this eyebrow pomade in blonde and I find it's the perfect match for my eyebrows and skin tone. This eyebrow pomade is a holy grail product for me! 

Lush Mint Julips Lip Scrub - this is the third time I am mentioning this in a post so it must be good. I must say I love love love this lip scrub and I think everyone should own their own! 

Song - this month I have been loving Shotgun Rider - Tim McGraw
Style - Taylor Swift 
Country Side - Jason Blaine 
YouTube -
Kayln Nicholson 
Meghan Rienks 

The Longest Ride - Nicholas Sparks 

I hope you lovely ladies enjoyed this post. Comment your favorites for the month down below :)

Nighttime Skin Care | Routine

Hey ladies!

Here is what I use at night for my skincare routine. 

Mac Cleanse Off Oil Tranquil - I use this cleansing oil before I use my cleanser. I love this because it takes off every bit of my makeup before I even wash my face. I find my face feels a lot cleaner when I use this as my first step. I buy the tranquil one because I do have such sensitive skin and my skin may react to the regular version. This will always be a staple product for me! 

St.ives Green Tea Cleanser - this is my step two after the cleansing oil. I use this at night as oppose to my tea tree cleanser because it's less drying and more targeted towards acne fighting. I do have cystic acne and I find things that are acne fighting don't always work for me, but this cleanser does seem to make a world of difference. Plus is smells really nice! 

Clean and Clear Blackhead Clearing Astrigent - this is my night toner, I use it as my step 3, I find it takes off every last bit of makeup that my cleanser missed, it also does help clear up my blackheads which I have a lot of. I have been using this toner for years and it never disappoints. 

Garnier Ultra Lift Eye Cream - this eye cream is amazing. I like this as a night formula because it is quite thick but I have noticed a difference in my under eyes. The skin under my eyes isn't the firmest and I do think that this has made a difference for me. 

Lush Imperialis Facial Moisturizer - I just started using this and it's a light moisturizer that takes some time to absorb but then makes my skin feel lovely. It hasn't affected my cystic acne at all which is good but if I use it during the day it's just a little heavy so it is my new night cream! 

Lush Mint Julips Lip Scrub - I just got this but I have added it to my night and morning routine to take the dry skin off my lips and it works like a charm! 

Carmex Lip Balm - I use this after my lip scrub to moisturizer my lips. Carmex is my HG lip moisturizer and I will always use it after my lip scrub as well as anytime my lips are dry ! 

I hope you girls like my skincare routine and mini reviews of what I use and why I use it. If you have any things I should add please comment them below :) 


Lush Cosmetics Haul | Review

Hey ladies!

So I got some stuff from Lush the other day, so here's a mini review of my thoughts thus far! 

Imperialis Facial Moisturizer - I got this because I do have quite oily skin and the lady at Lush told me it would be good for my sensitive/oily skin and it's quite light weight. I have decided to just use this at night because it does take my skin some time to absorb it and I find it doesn't help the longevity of my makeup when I put it on in the morning, but as a night cream it is superb and has not affected my cystic acne in a negative way. It is also very moisturizing. 

Tea Tree Water Toner - I love tea tree oil to combat my oily skin, as well as my acne. I use a tea tree oil cleanser in the morning so I thought I would add this to my routine and I can say it has been working wonders! I think this is a new HG profduct. 

Mint Julips Lip Scrub - this scrub is heavenly. I find when I wear matte lipsticks the lipstick always clings to dry spots so I got this to help deal with that. I use it at night and then follow with a lip balm to moisturizer. So far it has made a huge difference. 

I have never used a lot of Lush products but I think I am beginning to see what all the hype is
