Urban-Decay-Ultimate-Ozone-Multipurpose-Primer-Pencil

Urban Decay Ultimate Ozone Multipurpose Primer Pencil

I bought this because my other lip liner pencil ran out and I wanted to try something new. I got this one because it can be used on your lips or eyes or anywhere really. It actually works, it feels great on your lips before you put lipstick on! I got this at Sephora for $19.00.

Clinique Clarifying Lotion #2

This is the second step in Cliniques 3 step cleaning. It’s made to get rid of flakes and refine the pores, all you have to do it use a cotton pad and rub a small amount over your face. I got this a Sephora or Sears for roughly $24.00 for the big size.

August Favourites 2017

Makeup Favourite:

s1501311-main-hero

Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner

I actually got this eyeliner as a Sephora birthday gift but I gave it a try and fell in love with it, it’s one of the best crayon eyeliners I’ve used. It goes on smoothly and has a great finish to it. You can get this at Sephora for $31.00.

Clinique Foaming Sonic Facial Soap

I recently changed my face wash routine because as I wrote before my skin must have changed because what I was using before wasn’t working anymore. I decided to try clinique, this is their foaming face wash, my face has never felt so damn clean. Using this with the brush just makes your face feel amazing. You can get this at Sears for $24.00.

Hair Care Favourite:

_100577345

Aveda Thermal Dry Conditioner

I wrote about how Aveda released a dry shampoo that I used a lot while I was in school. Towards the end of school they also released a dry conditioner, for those of you who use dry shampoo and restyle your hair, this product is for you. Dry shampoo is for the roots to soak up the oils but when we restyle our hair what is protecting the ends from the heat tools we always use? Nothing. Aveda came up with just that, it detangles, conditions and is a heat protector for your mids and ends! It smells amazing, like the Aveda Shampure scent and doesn’t leave your ends looking dirty. You can get this at Aveda for $31.00.

Bitter Sweet Rose Gold Plated Sterling Silver Ring

It will kill me to write about this because I know this place will get more popular. Bitter Sweet is an amazing place to get jewellery, I’ve been getting my earrings from here for years but recently they stepped up their game and got even better products. This is a recent ring I got that matches my earrings for my birthday. You can get these at Bitter Sweet for $78.00.

WonderBoom Waterproof Bluetooth Wireless Speaker

My amazing boyfriend got me this speaker for my birthday, I’ve always wanted one and he was thoughtful enough to get me one. It’s actually amazing, it comes in multiple colours, it’s waterproof, wireless, the sound is clear and you control it with you phone or ipod. You can get this at Best Buy for $129.99.

FitBit Aria

My amazing Mum and Step Dad got me this scale for my birthday (I asked for it). I have a FitBit and wear it everyday, I try to track my food everyday but I wanted to track my weight aswell.

July Favourites 2017

Makeup Favourite: 

800897840242_liquidsuedecreamlipstick_softspoken_main

NYX Cream Lipstick – Soft Spoken

My friend actually told me about this product because she wore it one day at school. She let me try it and I fell in love with it. It goes on creamy but dries matte which I love and it lasts pretty long. I got this at Shoppers Drug Mart for roughly $12.

Skin Care Favourite:

Clinique_Sonic_System_Purifying_Cleansing_Brush_1410609749_main

Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush

I needed a new face cleansing routine because skin changes and I noticed mine just wasn’t working anymore so I decided to use Clinique. I actually got this brush in a set but I will talk about the other products it came with later on. This brush is amazing, it is a gentle vibration to help clean your face. It comes with the regular brush head but there’s different ones for different types of skin to fit everyone’s needs. I switched out the regular brush for the Gentle brush because I have sensitive skin. You can get this at a bunch of stores such as the Bay, Sears, Sephora, etc for roughly $111.

Aveda Shampure Dry Shampoo

They released this product while I was still in school at Aveda Institute and ended up using it almost everyday. This is a non-aerosol powder mist dry shampoo that smells like the Aveda Shampure smell. Because it’s non-aerosol in order to use it you tip it upside down, bring it back up and lightly squeeze. This product is amazing because I hate the smell of regular dry shampoos and this one doesn’t harm the Earth and it’s atmosphere because it’s non-aerosol. This product is always great for styling your hair, like braids and up-dos. Aveda sells thing product for $39.00.

Body Favourite:

Bittersweet Rose Gold Plated Sterling Silver Cubic Zirconia Earrings

I just love all of Bitter Sweet’s jewellry but sadly they got rid of the location closest to me so I need to go to Mississauga now. I fell in love with these earrings online and had to have them so I got them. They look like expensive jewellry without having to break the bank for them. I got these for $78.00.

Ikea Hemnes Dressing Table (Vanity)

My awesome boyfriend got me this for Christmas last year and it’s the best. It is on the big side so if you have a small room it can make things hard but it’s absolutely beautiful. On the other hand, putting it together was a pain in the ass but it’s worth it in the end. He got this at Ikea for $249.00.

December Favourites 2016

Makeup Favourites:

s1269604-main-lhero

NARS Pure Matte Lipstick – Volga

I actually bought this online because I wanted a fall/winter lip colour rather than wearing bright red all the time. I was actually impressed with this the first time I wore it, it lasted a long time and the colour is great. It does appear darker then it does online and the only problem I had with it was that if you have dry lips it tends to show that they’re dry. It doesn’t really provide that moisture for your lips. You can get this at Sephora for $35.00.

Skin Care Favourite:

s886267-main-lhero

Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

I’ve written about the Clinique liquid makeup remover of this product but I wanted to try something different. This cleansing balm is the weirdest, most awesome thing I’ve bought for removing makeup. It looks oily but it’s not, it’s a solid until you rub it on your eyes/face then you just rinse off. It get waterproof makeup off and you won’t have black under eyes in the morning! It actually works and lasts longer then regular makeup removers.  I got this at Sephora for $38.00 but you can also get it at Sears and the Bay.

Hair Care Favourite:

Aveda Smooth Infusion Style Prep

Now that I got to Aveda Institute I know a lot more about the products that I loved before, I also have a lot of Aveda products now so they might be on here a lot more. Aveda Smooth Infusion Style Prep creates a smooth surface and helps fight against humidity. I know that doesn’t help in the winter but the smooth surface part is great. I flat iron my hair almost every day so putting some product in helps. You can only get this at Aveda stores/salons for $34.00.

Body Favourite:

Aveda Hand Relief Moisturizing Creme – Shampure

Once again I went with Aveda because I love the smell of this hand creme. It actually works since going their my hands are dry and I use this all the time. It doesn’t just have to be your hands I use it only my arms as well! They come in different scents which some I don’t personally like but the Shampure smell is good, it’s the scent you smell when you walk by Aveda stores/salons. You can only get this at Aveda stores/salons for $36.00.

Ikea EKTORP Corner Sofa

My boyfriend and I needed a couch so we went on a mission and found this at Ikea! It’s actually a pretty good couch, a good size and it’s comfortable. We got it for $1149.00.

Bethany Uggs

I needed winter boots that I could wear when it wasn’t a snow storm but that are also warm so my mum got me an early Christmas present. They’re cute, and warm but not waterproof because they’re Uggs. Now I don’t normally like Uggs because they’re ugly in my opinion but this don’t look like your regular Uggs. These are from Little Burgundy for $200.00.

May Favourites 2016!

 

Makeup Favourite:

L0693614Neutrogena All-in-one Makeup Removing Cleansing Wipes

I like trying different make up wipes and this one is one of my tops. It actually works and leaves your face feeling clean, the best part is that it actually gets waterproof mascara off! You can get this at Walmart for $9.00.

Skin Care Favourite:

B0012MZ4WE-1-lgDove Clinical Protect Anti-Perspirant

With the hot weather already here I personally need a little stronger anti-perspirant. This product I find works well when you really need some protection compared to their regular anti-perspirants. You can buy this product at Walmart for $8.00.

Hair Care Favourite:

untitledJohn Frieda Beach Blonde Sea Waves Sea Salt Spray

This product is really good for when you’re too lazy to style your hair! I use this after I come out of the shower and want to have a messy but controlled look. You can buy this at Walmart for $8.00.

Body Favourite:

Sears PURE NRG ATHLETICS Pant

Remember when Lululemon had those good yoga pants then they changed? Fun fact, Sears sells the old ‘Lulu’ pants! I don’t need to say anything more if you use to wear these pants, they’re comfortable, they breath, and nice material! Only problem is they sell really fast! You can get these at Sears for $29.97.

My family told me about Urban Barn and took me, I fell in love with this pillow! The entire store is filled with cool products such as this pillow, when I get my own place I will be shopping here! I got this pillow on sale for $20.00, regularly priced for $29.00 at Urban Barn!

April Favourites 2016!

Makeup Favourite:

61473tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick – Coral Blossom

I bought this lipstick in the Winter actually for the summer so I haven’t gotten to wear it outside but I have tested it out around the house. It’s a great lipstick, you all know I love tarte products and I suggest all the other shades. I got this at Sephora for $20.00.

Skin Care Favourite:

Water

I’m not going to post a picture of water since I’m not trying to sell you a brand of water but water is the number one beauty product everyone should be using. Yes it’s good for your health but it’s always good for your skin and hair! I’ve been trying to drink more water and you can tell the difference in my skin. Everyone drink up!

Hair Care Favourite:

speedo-jrsilicone-swimcap-black

Speedo Silicone Swim Cap

I know this isn’t a beauty product but it’s one product that I’ve been using to help my hair stay healthy. As you know I am a lifeguard so that means I’m in the water a lot whether I be teaching or training. Now swim caps are not made to keep your hair dry but they do minimize the amount of time your hair is in the chlorine water. I just throw it on and when I’m done being in the water I wash my hair after. You can get this at Sport Chek for $14.99.

Body Favourite:

star-trac-nxt-spin-bikeSpin Class

I recently started doing a spin class on Monday nights with the city. It was my first time doing spin so I wasn’t sure what to expect but I love it. Your legs are sore after but it’s a great feeling, lungs feel good and you feel great about yourself. Exercise is key! This is the spin bike we use at class and it’s pretty good but I’m not trying to sell you on that.

Home Favourite:

3D-White-Whitestrips-Vivid

Crest 3D White Whitestrips – Vivid

I, like most people, want white teeth so I started buying Crest WhiteStrips, I’ve tried out two different type of Crest strips that I will be writing a review about later on but I found them to work. I won’t go into much details since you can read the review later but people have told me my teeth are more white! I got these for around $30.00 you can buy them at most stores such as Walmart and Shoppers Drug mart.

Celebrate by Lauren Conrad

I love LC- she’s such an inspiration! This actually came out like couple days ago but I read it in two days. It’s all about party planning and being a good host. I suggest buying this book if you like to have a good time and have fun! I got this at Chapters for $25.00.

March Favourites 2016!

Makeup Favourite: 

V411917

Victoria’s Secret Fearless Eau de Parfum

I know this isn’t makeup, it’s more like a beauty favourite but meh! Sadly I had to find a new perfume I liked since Victoria’s Secret got rid of the one I used so I picked this one instead! I’m picky with smells so it took my awhile to figure out which one I liked since they have so many but this ended up being a great choice. Victoria’s Secret has great perfumes and I would suggest you check them out if you’re into that. For a 1.7 Fl ox bottle it is $55.00 and for a 3.4 Fl ox it is $72.00!

Skin Care Favourite:

s1486836-main-hero

tarte Maracuja C-Brighter Eye Treatment

Under my eyes started to get really dry and dark so I wanted to get an eye cream, plus finding a good eye cream now and using it forever is good to help your skin. As any of my followers know I love tarte products so of course I wanted to get out theirs first. I put it on a sensitive spot on my hand to test it out and was impressed so I bought it. When I started using it at home I was skeptical at first I’ll admit but not I can see that it’s actually doing something. However, I don’t think this is the one for me. I will continue to use it so I don’t waste it but I will however been trying other products. Don’t get me wrong I would buy this product again. I got this at Sephora for $46.00.

Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Deep Conditioner

Well weird story, my boyfriend used all of my conditioner on his beard so I needed to buy more. We went to the store and this is all they really had so I grabbed it anyways, this works wonders, especially when I come out of the pool! It even comes in this cool little bottle! I got it at Walmart for $3.46.

Living in Canada and it being March which means Spring brings a lot of rain, and with rain comes migraines for me. My family found these at Target awhile ago before they even came to Canada and left, these are heaven! My friend went to the states and got some for me but Target now ships to Canada! They are $10.99 at Target.

This was actually a gift from my Dad when he went to the States. My dear old Dad thought you could only buy them there so he picked one up but it ended up being a pretty sweet gift. You can buy them almost anywhere and they range from $10.00-$20.00 depending on the brand. We just have a cheap one and it works just as well!
