My loves, In the winter months we always find our lips extra dry, so we are constantly using lip balm and making sure are lips stay hydrated.

Travel Essentials for the Beauty Queen

My loves, It’s that time of year where so many people decide to take some time off and travel somewhere tropical. I for one am planning a trip to Nicaragua in  a little over 3 weeks! I seriously cannot wait, I am so excited. You all know how much I despise winter, so some sunshine, some water and some awesome volcano boarding (more on that later). When traveling there is always the question ‘Do I check a bag?’ ‘Should I just bring a carry-on?’ I have decided that I am only going to bring a carry-on because with my luck my bag will get lost and I just can’t have that. I’ve been searching for the best travel items at the best value, because I am absolutely awful at packing lightly. This is an entirely new experience for me. I mean I still have to look good while on vacation, so I need the very best beauty products. The key is to small the small ones that I’m allowed to bring in my carry-on. Here …

Make Up For Ever| Artist Liner

My loves, You all know how much I love Make Up For Ever. I honestly think it’s the most well-rounded makeup line out there. Which is why I always get really excited when they introduce new products.

Short Hair Don’t Care…And Make Up For Ever Continues to be Awesome

My loves, As some of you may have already seen on my Instagram I chopped off my beautiful long hair. Now cutting your hair drastically short (in my opinion) takes a certain getting used to. I mean it is quite a shock. The moment it was done I thought I might have a heart attack. However, several hours after this traumatic experience (that I brought upon myself), I definitely like my hair short. Still adjusting, but I think it’s a good change. I was getting so bored with my long hair, I always looked the same, I needed a change. Before After Isn’t it funny attached we become to our hair? I mean it does grow back! Duh. I actually handle getting a permanent tattoo far better than cutting or colouring my hair, which is absolutely ridiculous. Ladies, short hair is trending, take the plunge! Don’t be afraid to cut your hair. I promise it will grow back. I of course went to Fiorio on Cumberland to visit my fellow co-workers. If you are looking …

TIFF| Sibu Beauty-Age Defying Eye Cream

My loves, Since I have been up far too late these past few nights and when I do manage to find my bed I haven’t been sleeping all that well! It makes for tired looking eyes, and tired eyes are never a good thing when you work in the beauty industry. Especially when like myself you have to attend more than one movie, multiple dinners and after parties. Thank goodness Charming Media sent me Age Defying Eye Cream from Sibu Beauty along with Too Faced ‘Better Than Sex’ Mascara.

TIFF| ‘Too Faced’ Better Than Sex Mascara

My loves, I must apologize for my lack of posts over the last few days. Let me please explain why I’ve been slacking so much! I just started a new job, managing a salon at Yonge and St.Clair called Me&T Studio. Needless to say my days and nights have been a little crazy trying to get settled in and adjust to my new job (which is amazing by the way). It’s also obviously TIFF and I’ve been lucky enough to see a couple of movies as well as attend some fun after parties. So you can only imagine what little sleep I have been getting. I promise many fun posts are coming and I will stop being such a slacker. This past Sunday I got to attend the premiere of ‘The Theory of Everything’ which stars Felicity Jones (I love her so much) and Eddie Redmayne (amazingly talented). And of course both of them were there! Which was all very exciting. I obviously wanted to look my best and bring my Makeup ‘A’ game. I …
