5 of My Favourite Beauty Tips

5 favourite beauty tips

Hi guys! I always appreciate a good beauty tip. Whether it be something really original, or an oldie that I’ve long forgotten. I wanted to share with you five of my favourite beauty tips. I am in no way claiming and of these to be original. I’m pretty sure a lot of these have been around forever so I wouldn’t even know where to start to give credit. Wherever these came from, I really enjoy them and I thought I would share them here!

Conditioner as Shaving Cream

This is probably my favourite beauty tip. I haven’t purchased actual shaving cream for YEARS. I purchase an inexpensive conditioner, usually one by TRESemme with a pump and it seriously lasts forever. You don’t need to use much, it lubricates your skin for your razor to easily glide across and it moisturizes. It takes up more room in my shower but that seems like a small price to pay.

Current Favourite Hair Products


Hi guys! When it comes to haircare I am a creature of habit. Once I find products that I like, I stick with them as long as they continue to work well. I have curly hair which when left un-tamed leans on the frizzy side. Basically, what I need in a hair product is something that tames the frizz and gives me soft natural looking curls/waves without a lot of fuss.

Favourite Shampoo/Conditioner: Joico Smooth Cure

I’ve been using the shampoo and conditioner from this line for quite some time now. I find it really helps keep my hair smooth and has greatly reduced some of the frizz. I also find that when I straighten my hair (which is rare) that it ends up looking more polished and is less likely to go frizzy. Continue reading

Holiday Look #4

P1010902.jpg Hi guys! Welcome to another holiday inspired look! This is the look that I wore to my husband’s work Christmas party last Saturday. My inspiration was to do something that had gold and sparkle in it. Of course, given the nature of this event I wanted to add a red lip as well. Since I did a matte true-red lip in my last holiday post, I wanted to do something a bit different this time. I chose Urban Decay’s Catfight since it leans more on the pink side, but still has some red to it. I also thought the a bold red lip might have been a bit too much with my red dress. All in all, I’m very happy with how this look turned out! Continue reading



Hi guys! Today I have some products that I have recently (within the past month or so) used up. I absolutely love watching empties videos on YouTube so I thought I would bring the concept over to my blog. In case you haven’t seen an empties video (or blog post), it involves saving up your empty products and then sharing them with your opinion on if you would re-purchase that item. If my husband is reading this, I swear it isn’t hoarding, and yes I am going to throw them out now.
