30 Beauty Questions Tag

30 Beauty Questions Tag

I haven’t done a tag in quite some time so I thought it would be fun to do the 30 Beauty Questions Tag post today. I wasn’t tagged in it per say but I did find it while searching online for a fun one to do. I love reading tag posts to learn more about fellow bloggers and their preferences!

30 Beauty Questions Tag

1 // Do you remember your first makeup item?

It had to be either a black eyeliner (not sure which brand) or a Cover Girl icy blue eye shadow.

2 // Describe your perfect mascara. Have you found one that fits your specifications?

Benefit Roller Lash. Oh my goodness I don’t know what took me so long to get on this band wagon. The perfect mascara for me lasts all day and adds curl to my lashes without needing to use an eyelash curler which this one does. Continue reading

The Limited Edition Makeup Tag

Limited Edition Tag

Well, that was an unexpected break from blogging… My husband and I have been working on some home renovations and they were a lot more time consuming than I had expected (aren’t they all?). However, I’m back and hopefully will be returning to posting consistently. I was cruising Facebook a week or so ago and saw a new YouTube video by Chelle of Makeup Your Mind and I was super intrigued. I’ve embedded her video at the end of this post and I definitely suggest checking it out! The video was The Limited Edition Makeup Tag which allows creators to give some love to Limited Edition items that we may not talk about regularly due to the ability to get them anymore. I’m all for any opportunity to give some love to my favourite Limited Edition Makeup products so I was all about participating in this tag.


1. What is the LE product you are most happy you got your hands on?

The Kat Von D Metal Matte Palette is hands down one of my favourite palettes in general, limited edition or not. It has a little bit of everything in it – both colourful and neutral so I keep coming back to it for creating different looks.

2. What is your least favorite LE products you picked up, the thing you could have been without? Continue reading

The Birthday Tag

The Birthday Tag

I had planned on doing a Mani Monday post today but since I’ve been sick I wasn’t really motivated to paint my nails. However, as today is my birthday I thought I’d do the birthday tag instead!

1.) When is your birthday?

Today (November 6th)

2.) How old are you turning? (Or if your birthday recently passed, how old did you turn?)

I turn 28 today!

3.) What was you’re favourite present that you’ve ever received?

To be honest – nothing really sticks out in my mind. I’m sure I’ve received lots of great presents over the years though. Nothing really beats a nice night out for dinner with my husband though 😊 Continue reading

Mani Monday: All About Nail Polish Tag

All About Nail Polish Tag

Hi guys! Today I wanted to something a little different for Mani Monday so I decided to search the internet for a nail polish tag. I found the All About Nail Polish Tag over on The Polished Pursuit! In my search I think I found another blog that I’m going to need to regularly read so win-win for me!

All About Nail Polish Tag

1. What is your favourite nail polish finish (eg. creme, crelly, glitter, etc)?

Definitely a cream! They are the easiest to apply, never go out of style and easiest to remove! There’s nothing I love more on my nails than a nice glossy cream polish.

OPI I'm Gown for Anything Continue reading

The Ride or Die Makeup Tag

ride or die makeup tag

Hi guys! I was thinking about doing an update to my holy grail post that I wrote last year. Instead, I thought it would be fun to do Jaclyn Hill’s Ride or Die Makeup Tag which is essentially the same thing! So in this post you will find all of my go-to items for each makeup category, these are the products I can’t live without.



If you read my post about essential drugstore makeup items this week, you probably already know the answer to this. My ride or die primer is the Nivea After Shave Balm (Sensitive). Nothing else makes my makeup last so long. Note, it does not control my oil though.


L'Oreal Pro-Matte Foundation

Another repeat from my essential drugstore post… so far the drugstore is winning this tag! While I enjoy a few other foundations, the L’Oreal Pro-Matte is my ride or die. I always go back to it because it works so well for me.



Straying from the drugstore… The Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer is definitely ride or die status for me. Personally, I find it is a great formula to work with. It’s pigmented, it has a great, blendable consistency and it is the perfect shade for me. I never have luck finding a concealer in the right shade and Fair Neutral is perfection.


Maybelline Matte + Poreless Translucent Powder

Face powders are essential for helping me stay matte and I’ve mentioned this powder thousands of time here on the blog… The Maybelline FitMe Matte + Poreless Translucent Powder is definitely my go-to.



I normally use the same powder on my face as I do for setting my under eye, but occasionally I’ll use the Laura Mercier Loose Translucent Powder on my under eye area if I really want to make sure my makeup lasts all day. Continue reading

Seven Deadly Sins of Makeup Tag

seven deadly sins of makeup

Hi guys! Today I was just really feeling like doing a tag post. I love reading tags on other blogs and I love doing them from time to time to switch up my content and most of the time I end up talking about products I may have otherwise not mentioned. Anyways, I knew I wanted to a tag, but the question was ‘which one?’ so I headed over to Stashy’s Awards & Tags Page on her blog for some inspiration! That’s where I found the Seven Deadly Sins of Makeup Tag which I actually had never heard of or seen before. So, thank you Stashy! haha

Anyways, the point of the Seven Deadly Sins of Makeup Tag is that the questions all revolve around… you guessed it, the seven deadly sins.


What’s your most inexpensive beauty item? What’s your most expensive beauty item?

My most inexpensive beauty item would have to be my Essence Lip Liners. I can’t remember the exact price but they are only a few dollars and I love them.


My most expensive beauty item would probably be my recently purchased Kat Von D MetalMatte Palette. It thought it would be my Urban Decay Vice Palettes but they are actually $4 less! I looove eye shadow palettes so I tend to spend the most money on those.

The Fall Tag

Fall Tag

Hi guys! The lovely Cat of MyLipAddiction.com tagged me to do the fall tag! If you haven’t checked out Cat’s wonderful blog or her podcast, they are both a must! She is a truly inspiring woman! I think I remember doing some kind of fall tag last year but this seemed different! And, new year = new answers!

What is your favourite Fall colour?

Like a deep dark orangey shade! Wrath from the Kat Von D Monarch Palette would be the colour I have in mind. Such a beautiful colour and you can find it so many places during the fall!

What is your favourite Fall lip product? 

Hmm… Probably either Urban Decay 1993 or Colourpop’s Grunge! I love the brown lip trend we’ve seen the past two falls. I did a whole post on my top 5 lipsticks for fall so you can find swatches of these two beauties there!

What is your favourite Fall accessory? 

Scarves! I wear them a lot in the winter too, but this is when I start busting them out and I get pretty excited about it!

What is your favourite Fall nail polish? 

OPI Lincoln Park After Dark is my favourite nail polish for fall or all year round. If I had to choose something else then I would say OPI Royal Rajah Ruby.

What is your favourite Fall scent? 

I have a Bath & Body Works Candle from last fall that I’m still working on, the scent is called Autumn and I’m in love with it! It really reminds me of hot apple cider.

What is your favourite Fall fashion?

Boots! Skinny jeans and boots is my favourite look to throw together!

What is your favourite Fall Starbucks drink? 

My go-to Starbucks drink in general is a Skinny Vanilla Latte and I do favour that over the seasonal fall drinks. But, if I had to pick one of the ones that is more fall specific then it would have to be a Salted Caramel Mocha. I only really get those as a treat though.

What is your favourite thing about Fall? 

Probably the colours. The changing colours of the leaves inspire me so much!

What are you being for Halloween? 

You’ll find out in a few weeks 😉 I’ve changed my mind so many times, but I’ve finally decided and ordered a costume!

What is your favourite fall hairstyle?

I don’t really change up my hair seasonally to be honest so I don’t think I have an answer for this one!

I tag the following beauties for the Fall Tag:

Pretty Ruff Life (in the time I took to post this she did the tag herself so here is here post!)

The Adult Tag

Adult Tag

Hi guys! I saw the Adult Tag over on Helpless While Drying quite some time ago and instantly knew I had to do this tag at some point. I’ve had the link to her post sitting in my drafts for awhile so tonight I thought it was finally time to take a crack at these questions! Rachael of Helpless While Drying was also recently on the My Lip Addiction Beauty Podcast! So, if you would like to check out her episode (and I do recommend it!) you can find all the links here!

1 – How old are you and where do you live?

I am 26 (but very close to 27) and I live in Thunder Bay, Ontario!

2 – Where did you expect to be by this age?

I think I’m pretty much where I hoped I would be… married, house, car, surrounded by pets and working a full-time day job! Career-wise I guess I’m not where I thought I would be but, life happens and you roll with it. I’m in a field I never really thought about at all when I was younger so it’s not really a bad thing.

3 – Are you on track to where you want to be now?

I think so! I feel like goals change and adapt over time so it is so hard to say “I’m on track”. But, I’m happy and I don’t feel like I am missing anything in my life.

4 – What piece of advice do you wish people told you when you were young?

Hmm… that’s a good question! I can’t think of any advice that I wish I got earlier…

5 – What advice would you give to younger people now?

Do what makes you happy and don’t live your life based on what other people want or expect.

6 – Do you still suffer from FOMO?

Not really. I had to look up what FOMO means so I feel super old. Anyways, I’m pretty happy being a hermit to be honest, haha… Not that I don’t enjoy seeing my friends though. I definitely try to make an effort to go out and see them, but I don’t feel like I need to be out every weekend. I’m comfortable staying in if that’s what I feel like doing!

7 – What is your opinion on living at home vs moving out in your 20’s?

I don’t really have an opinion on it, I feel like people should do what is right for them. If you’re financially able to move out in your 20’s, go for it! If moving out will financially cripple you, don’t. I moved out when I was 19 and it thankfully worked out pretty great!

8 – If you could change something in your adult life right now then what would it be?

Hmm… I like my job, but it feels like a job so I count down to weekends and holidays. I would love to be doing something that is more centred around my hobbies/interests that doesn’t feel as much work. But, I’m comfortable where I am so I’m not really itching to leave either.

9 – Have you had any sudden realisations about life/relationships/friendships since hitting your 20s?

The older I get the more I value my close friendships. You start to realize that life isn’t about having the most friends, it’s about having a handful of super amazing close friends. People drift away, that’s just life. You really do learn who your real friends are though!

10 – Do you feel like an adult?

Yes and no. When I’m working my 9 to 5 job, taking care of my pets and paying bills, I sure do feel like an adult! However, when I’m driving around the city with my husband playing Pokemon Go with my husband as we track where the good Pokemon are, I question how much of an adult I really am… haha! But I wouldn’t change a thing.

I’m not going to tag anyone specific to participate in this fun tag, but if you do it, please leave me your links because I would love to read your answers!!

Get to Know Me Tag

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Hi guys! I saw this tag over at Classic Maggie and thought it looked like so much fun that I had to give it a whirl myself! I highly recommend checking out her post if you want to learn more about the fantastic Nicole of Classic Maggie!

1. What brings you the greatest joy? My husband, friends, pets and family! Oh, and watching a rabbit “binky”. It’s the most amusing and greatest thing to watch…

Bunnelby approves of her new kennel!

2. What are your vices? Online shopping (particularly for makeup), procrastination and greasy food.

3. What is on your nightstand? Books, my phone and cuticle oil.

4. Do you have a secret talent? Hmm, I honestly don’t think so!

5. What is your greatest indulgence? Pasta! I loooooove pasta. When I went to Rome I practically lived off of it.

6. What should everyone try at least once in their life?  I’m with Nicole on this one and I have to say, travel! Whether it is within your own country or to another country, it such an amazing experience. I try to travel somewhere near each year!

7. What makes you laugh? So many things, I’ve got a pretty good sense of humour! I love a good meme, always appreciate sarcasm and I always love hearing a funny story.

8. What is one thing people would be surprised to know about you? I’m a major over-thinker. It’s not as bad as it used to be but I used to keep myself up at night over-thinking.

9. What is on your bucket list? Travel the world (I’ve got a fairly lengthy travel bucket list, maybe I’ll do a post on just that!), see as many of my favourite musicians perform and go to Comic-Con in San Diego, to name a few.

10. What is on your feet right now? Nothing! I’m inside my house.

11. How did you make your first dollar? Probably random chores around the house! I think it was to earn money to buy Spice Girls bubblegum to collect the stickers, haha!

12. What superstition do you believe in? Full moons evoking madness… I definitely notice a difference at work. Also, “knock on wood” is another one I regularly partake in.

13. What items in your closet do you wear the most? Jeans!

14. What is the best gift you’ve ever received? Hmm, probably my engagement ring. I was so surprised when I came home to find my husband on one knee and I will treasure that ring forever. It’s exactly what I had always had in mind. He did good!

15. What is on your liquor shelf? If you saw my liquor shelf you would think I had a problem… My drink of choice is merlot though.

16. What is on your kitchen counter? The usual stuff… spice rack, fruit bowl, Keurig Coffee Maker and so on 🙂

17. What would you never leave home without? My phone and wedding rings, I feel naked without those, and I guess my wallet is an essential too!

I tag anyone who would like to participate in the Get to Know Me Tag! Link me your posts if you do it, I love reading these kinds of posts!
