January Favorites 2018

Untitled 1

Good evening bloggers and happy February! Last month was a long one, and in that month I picked up some new beauty products that quickly have turned into some of my faves. From primers to lip glosses to candles, here’s some of my selections from the month of January 2018.

NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray

I am always looking for a good setting spray to finish my makeup with, and a lot of people were raving about this one. It’s inexpensive and awesome quality, holding your makeup in place for hours. You can choose between a matte finish or a dewy finish. Click here to purchase.

PÜR Nude Lip Kit

Definitely my fave out of all of these faves. It comes with a lip liner, lip stick, and a lip gloss all in a nude shade. The lip stick and lip gloss have a mirror attached to it, and the lip gloss even has its own light when you twist the cap off. They make your lips so big and beautiful. It’s definitely a must have for all beauty lovers. Click here to purchase.

Fenty Beauty Universal Lip Gloss

Rihanna made this lip gloss in one shade for all shades, so it looks great with against every skin tone. The color is Fenty Glow. It has an amazing flavor and goes on beautifully. The only flaw it has though, is it does not last long at all. But it still makes it on this list for being a great lip gloss overall. Click here to purchase.

Spark x Iskra Self-Care Kit 

This cute kit was created by Spark and model Iskra Lawrence and sold by Aerie/American Eagle Outfitters. Its box is adorable and covered in little pictures that look like stickers on your iPhone. (Actually, you can get these as stickers on the American Eagle app.) It comes with a sweet, pretty scented candle, a candy scented bath bomb, and a silky sleep mask that proclaims you the Queen of Naps. This kit is adorable, useful, and all of the items are super fun. Click here to purchase.

Urban Decay All Nighter Liquid Foundation 

All my life I have been trying foundation after foundation, trying to see what worked for me and nothing has come along as great as this foundation. I use the 2.0 shade. Click here to purchase.

Lise Watier Base Miracle Primer 

The description for this product states: “By creating a film-like effect over the skin’s surface, this silky primer conceals minor flaws, reduces the appearance of pores, evens out the skin tone, and mattifies skin where it tends to shine”. This primer is very similar to Smashbox’s primers which I am also quite fond of, but I decided to give this one a try. It makes your makeup look perfect. Click here to purchase. 

Thanks for reading loves ❤

Christmas & Winter Lush Haul 2017

It’s that time of year again  . . .

Christmas & Winter Lush Haul!

Lush is by far one of my favorite stores to shop in. As I’ve said before, they’re made from all natural materials, are against animal testing, are fair trade . . . What’s not to like? In this 2017 edition of Lush’s Christmas/winter items, it gets crazy good with new “Snow Fairy” items, and more!


20171207_160619

First, we’ll start off with my favorite fragrance from Lush, “Snow Fairy”. It’s a seasonal scent, so it only comes around Christmastime, meaning I want to buy everything I can in the fragrance! I didn’t include the “Snow Fairy” bath bombs; those are listed below. But here’s the top selling “Snow Fairy” products at Lush:

  1. Snow Fairy Shower Gel: One of the most popular items. It smells like cotton candy, bubblegum, and sugar all mixed in together. It’s such a girly, feminine fragrance. There’s little specs of glitter in the shower gel, meaning you’ll smell amazing and also shine each time you use it.
  2. Snow Fairy Body Conditioner: Made with mango butter and vegetarian glycerin, this body conditioner is made specifically for dry, winter skin in need of moisture. The cool part about this (other than being cotton candy scented), is you use it in the shower or bath. Rub it on your skin, then rinse off with water. It makes your skin feel fabulous.
  3. Snow Fairy Scented Fairy Dust: This fairy dust is to be used after taking a shower or a bath. Dust yourself with this powder and watch your skin transform. Your skin will be lightly fragranced and shining bright.
  4. Snow Fairy Fun Bar: Like the other “FUN” bars, this one is scented with “Snow Fairy” and comes with three pieces that you can use as a soap, shampoo, or bubble bath. It’s texture is like clay, and can lather up nicely if you take a piece and rub it in your hands. Alternatively, run it under water to create a relaxing, luxurious bubble bath (my personal fave).
  5. Santa’s Belly Shower Jelly: This one is scented with “Santa’s Belly”, a spicier fragrance than the “Snow Fairy”. The shower jelly is this gooey blob that looks like fun to play with, but it’s actually a great cleanser for your skin. Wet the jelly, lather up, and rinse. It’s covered with gold glitter pieces to make you in the holiday spirit. 

20171207_160529

Next we have the collection of  winter 2017 bath bombs and bubble bars! Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to grab the “Giant Golden Wonder” bomb before it went out of stock. Here’s hoping I’ll get lucky next year! 

  1. Candy Mountain Bubble Bar: This one is scented with “Snow Fairy”, of course.
  2. Magic Wand: Also scented with “Snow Fairy”, and as you can see by the picture, it’s super shimmery as well. It comes with a sparkly silver bow and a little bell. Run it under your bath, and watch your tub transform before your very eyes.
  3. Snow Fairy Bath Bomb: This bath bomb is a jelly bomb, so once your bath bomb fizzes up, the jelly disperses, making your bath super soft and skin really smooth. And, the jelly is fun and slimy. Who’s to say only kids can play in the bathtub? 
  4. Thundersnow Bath Bomb: This Earth looking bath bomb is mint chocolate scented. It’s like bathing in a cup of minty hot chocolate. Yummy.
  5. Christmas Sweater Bath Bomb: Almost as satisfying as an ugly Christmas sweater itself. It’s spicy cinnamon scented, reminding me of those hot cinnamon candies you get on Valentine’s Day. How sweet it is.
  6. Golden Wonder Bath Bomb: Just like it’s advertised on Lush’s website: “Bathe in liquid gold.” It’s citrus, sparkly, and the perfect Christmastime bath bomb. And the Giant Golden Wonder Bath Bomb is over five times its size. This one is 200 grams, whereas the giant one is a whopping 1100 grams.

These ones I actually just picked up this evening. They had a buy one get one free sale, and how can I refuse such an offer? These little guys are as follows:

  1. Santa’s Christmas Naked Shower Cream: This one is great, and I am so happy I found it. There were only three left when I arrived at the mall, so I came just in time. It’s cherry cola scented. Cherry. Cola. Another one of my absolute favorite scents and flavors of all time. It may not be pretty or shiny like Lush’s other products, but the creamy lather you get from using it in the shower paired up with the sweet sugary scent make up for it.
  2. My Two Front Teeth Bubble Bar: Confused about what exactly it is that you’re looking at? Think of the song. “All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth, my two front teeth, my two front teeth . . .” You are looking at a pair of lips and two ginormous front teeth, because who else would think of that except for Lush?!
  3. Oatifix Fresh Face Mask: Not a Christmas/winter exclusive, but a great face mask for dry skin. I bought this one for my boyfriend, who has dry skin as it is, and in the winter gets even worse from the dry air.
  4. BB Seaweed Fresh Face Mask: Also not a Christmas/winter only item, but I bought it for my skin to invigorate and freshen up my face. This mask is perfect for all skin types, from oily, to dry, to normal, to combo skin. 

I absolutely love all of these Lush products! What other ones should I try next?

Fake “Pink” Cases

Hello everyone! Today we are going to be looking at fake cases from Ardène. I think it’s kinda funny when a designer brand such as Pink releases a case (such as a pineapple wearing sunglasses seen in this example) and then everyone tries to make a copy of it. The funny thing is, it’s literally the exact same thing except for what’s written on it is different. The material is the same, the quality is the same, even the price was only a couple dollars less than the original. Notice how “Pink” is still written on the side of the knock off case. Ardène, stop: we know you’re not real. So if you want the real thing, only shop from the real Victoria’s Secret store or the real online store. Just a little PSA for you guys. xoxocdadsfdsfds

Hello all you lovely bloggers out there! Today I wanted to talk about an online shopping wholesale jewellery website that I love. As you may assume from the title, it’s called “Beads.us”. There’s so many positives about this website. They offer quick shipping, friendly service, bulk shopping, and great products. I got some bangles, nail stickers, and (a lot of) chain from there and it came within two days. Everyone there was so lovely and sweet to me. I will definitely go back and buy again!

To buy from this awesome store and browse their selection of high quality items, please click here.

And for your viewing pleasure, I’ve also done a video review on their products in which you can check out here:

See you guys soon! xoxo

September—Fall, Halloween, Food, Seasonal Clothes Shopping, Etc

tumblr_nba2ylxebO1rufs31o1_500

Listed above are only several of the things I love the most about the fall season. And there’s school, of course, although that may not be as cheerful for some. I hope you’re all doing great in whatever it is that you are pursing right now, whether that be high school, college, university, or in the workplace. Good luck everyone! 🙂 

I’m praying that the warmth of the summer lasts a bit longer. We’ve had such a cold winter that I’m definitely not going to rush anything. I’d take the heat over coldness any day, but there’s just so many perks to the colder seasons! I LOVE Halloween, fall/winter clothes (too much, actually), hot chocolate, etc. But let’s hope that summer lasts at least another three weeks or so. I can wait. 

HAPPY SEPTEMBER, MAKE IT COUNT!

Travel Blog (Toronto/Niagara Falls): Part 3 — Food and Miscellaneous ♨

bffdhgf

This is exciting. We’re finally at the last part of my first ever travel blog. It’s been fun, but pretty tiring. Each blog post consisted of content that took me up to two hours to complete. Can you even imagine if they were all in one blog? This blog however will be fairly short. In part one, I talked about hotels. In part two, I talked about sights and attractions. Now for part three, I will be showing all of you bloggers some awesome stuff that I bought at gift shops, and that you can pick up, too, as well as a couple of restaurants. Let’s begin, shall we?

Restaurants 

I went to a bunch of restaurants, but these were my ultimate favourites:

And if I had to pick from one of these, I would definitely choose The Grand Buffet without hesitation. The other ones were good, but this one just can’t be beat. It can get a little pricey, it’s $40 per person not including tax, so for just two people it can come up to almost $100 with tax. However, everything is perfect. The view, the scenery, the service, the food, the way everything is prepared, etc. This buffet has everything. No, I mean it. Ask me if they have it, and the answer will be yes. I got full on calamari rings. So tasty. They had every kind of food from every kind of culture, it was amazing. Their deserts were out of this world. IT WAS JUST SO GOOD. If you’re ever in Niagara Falls, please go there. Please. You will thank me a million times. Also, a plus is, kids under the age of 12 eat for free, so it’s great for families all over. 🙂 A part that I absolutely adored about this restaurant was the chocolate fountain. Mmmm. And, they have a balcony in which you can go out and see the falls and take pictures if you’d like.

Shopping

IMG_5298

. . . did I mention yet that I loved shopping? In my other blogs, for sure, yes. Along with all of the amazing clothes, shoes, make-up, and more from Victoria’s Secret, Pink, Claire’s, etc, I also bought a lot of unique things that I want to share with you guys. Keep reading to see. 

CN TOWER

gah

From the CN Tower, I got a beautiful painting. My room is full of paintings, I love artwork so much. This picture is of downtown Toronto during fall from the island. It’s hanging on my wall near one of my closets and my laptop area, so I can always look at it while I’m blogging. Then, I got an awesome change purse and some cool Canadian maple leaf earrings. 

RIPLEY’S AQUARIUM 

nlahh

The aquarium was loads of fun! I got a cool shark tooth necklace, a real one. It’s anywhere between 5 to 60 million years old. Then, I got a mood ring. Ever since I was a little kid, every time I go on a trip I buy a mood ring in whatever city I’m visiting. Weird, I know, but, it’s tradition. Why ruin it now? I also got one of those things that’s full of water and has a bunch of tiny floating items in it, and when you turn it they all swim everywhere. They’re all shaped like marine animals. I love playing with those things. Yep, it can actually keep me entertained. Then, I bought a sting ray plush. Just because it was cute. I didn’t show its pattern, but it’s pink and blue and has spirals on it. Too cute!

SPIRITUAL EMPORIUM 

gahh

Out of all of the places, I have to say, this is the most unique store I went to. It’s called “Spiritual Emporium”, and they have everything from voodoo dolls to perfumes. So you can go there if you want to put a hex on someone, or spray on some scent that give you “magical powers”. Haha, okay, maybe not that much. But they have stones for a bunch of different things. I bought a scent for success. You spray it on whenever you want to be successful at something. So far I’ve used it twice, and it only worked one of the times. Not sure if it works, but it’s called “Moon Beezy” and it does smell nice. I also got a stone . . . I’m going to be keeping it a secret what it does. 😉 Sure hope it works! The papers are for how to clean the rock when I feel like it’s been touched by the wrong person or hexed, and the other sticky note is of a spiritual trick that a girl that worked there showed me how to do. Again, I’m keeping this one to myself.

HERSHEY’S

I don’t need to write a bunch to get the point across of how awesome this is. Instead, I’ll just write down in point form what I got.

  • Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Hoodie
  • Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Flip Flops
  • Kisses Journal
  • Scented Body Gel
  • Hershey’s Body Lotion
  • Kisses Pajamas (comfiest things ever, by the way)
  • Jolly Rancher Cherry Lip Balm

The Hershey’s things were almost $200, just for those. But they were worth it—I love every single item. 

ROCKY MOUNTAIN CHOCOLATE FACTORY

Do you see that? Let me explain to you—that is what perfection looks like, friends. It’s the best fudge I’ve ever had in my entire life. I only had it once other than this, in Stratford when I went to go see a few plays. Then I saw that they had it in one of the large malls I went to, and I jumped at the chance to get it. They have a variety of different types of fudge. They have fudge, candy apples, cookies, truffles, and basically everything you can imagine to satisfy that sweet tooth of yours. MORE, PLEASE! It’s getting me hungry, now I want more fudge . . . 😥 R.I.P to my fudge, eaten and gone so soon. I also went to this one smoothie place, and my boyfriend and I got the peach cherry flavour. Again, can I have more?


THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR READING ALL THREE PARTS OF MY FIRST TRAVEL BLOG! It was fun, and tiring, and for some reason, I wrote all three of them between 1 AM to 3 AM. Why? Don’t ask—I guess I’m just more active at those times. Plus, I got Starbucks here with me, too. That helps. Jacob and I had an amazing/lovely trip together, and we can’t wait to do more travelling with each other in the future! Also, today’s my birthday. Happy birthday to me! 😀

UNTIL NEXT TIME,
