Spring is a season that seems to be associated with bright colours, flowers and the grass finally turning green. However, here in Thunder Bay the reality is grey snow banks, possibly more snow and slightly warmer temperatures. The green grass and bright colours don’t come until much later… usually RIGHT before summer temperatures hit. So, I thought today I’d share a makeup look that reminds me more of the spring that I experience so I’ve used darker cool tones with a pop of brightness. Continue reading →
It’s March and spring, though it seems so far away if you’re buried in snow like we are in Thunder Bay, is coming! Pantone has declared Coral to be the colour of the year for 2019 so I thought it would be fun to round up some products that feature this beautiful colour that reminds me so much of spring. Coral is the March theme of the month for the Canadian Beauty Bloggers so be sure to check out the posts linked at the end of this post for more coral fun!

I usually talk about how ‘fast’ a month goes by but was it just me or did January seem particularly long this year? It could have been due to the major cold snap we had for the last couple of weeks at the month that really made it feel long. If I don’t have to see -40 with the windchill on the weather network again for the rest of the winter I’ll be a happy girl! January however was a great month – it was a month of setting goals and working on achieving them. Though I didn’t get as much blogging done as I would have liked to, I did spend the month working on some other goals of mine. Continue reading →
Tis the season for holiday gift sets! I don’t normally pick up too many gift sets for myself but I needed a replacement for my almost empty Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask and it this set was on sale for Black Friday. The Bite Beauty Agave Treat Trio Mini Agave Lip Mask Set contains three of their amazing lip masks in three different shades/scents!

When Bite Beauty announced their Astrology line of Amuse Bouche Lipsticks I couldn’t wait to see what they would have when my sign came along. Given that I’m a November baby I knew this would be a loooong wait. But alas, Bite Beauty Scorpio came to be and I was so relieved that it was a colour I would actually wear! It’s a beautiful spicy red which is just so fitting for the Scorpio sign. I purchased this during the Sephora VIB Rouge sale weekend. Continue reading →
These past few months I have been living a pretty minimal makeup life so once again I don’t have a ton of products to talk about in my monthly favourites. However, there were a few items that were in heavy rotation so I thought I’d give them props anyways! Continue reading →
The days are getting shorter and the air is getting crisper which means fall (though not officially here) is well underway. Though I don’t really believe in saving makeup for particular seasons I do find my patterns shift as the seasons progress. Mainly I find myself going from my minimal summer routine to one that is more involved and often either warm toned or vampy. I’m excited for this shift as I find fall really represents my favourite time of the year makeup and fashion wise so I thought I’d share with you five lipsticks that I think I’ll have in heavy rotation this fall!

Wow I can’t believe how long it has been since I last wrote a blog post. I’ve missed you guys! How was your summer? I can’t believe how quickly that flew by as well. I had a super, super, super crazy busy summer so that was why I had to be so absent here. But, things are settling down (for now) so I am going to try to get back into the swing of things. With that said, I didn’t post monthly favourites for June, July or August! To be honest… I was living a very minimalistic makeup/haircare/skincare life so I don’t have many products to talk about but I didn’t want to skip this all together so let’s chat about the products that have been constants in my life over the past few months, shall we?

Hello beauties! I’ve missed you! My life has suddenly got really busy so blogging has been put a bit on the back-burner so I apologize for how intermittent my posts will be. However, I had a bit of down time and I miss blogging and you guys so freaking much! So today I wanted to share with you three lipsticks that I’m digging for summer 2018! They are not all necessarily new to my collection but they are the ones that I have been reaching for and I can see myself continuing to reach through this summer! Continue reading →
Though the calendar says it’s spring, we still have quite a bit of snow in Thunder Bay as well as some chilly mornings. Nonetheless, since it is technically spring, I thought I’d share 5 items that are bring me more into a ‘spring’ state of mind! They are all bright and cheery which is exactly what I reach for to get me out of the darkness that I associate with winter. Don’t get me wrong, I love all of the vampy makeup that I reach for more during the winter, but I am ready for some change! Continue reading →
