Le Rouge Givenchy Rose Taffetas Review

February 26, 2014

I have lot of bold shades of lipstick but not that one go to shade for a softer look. Nars Dolce Vita is a lovely “your lips but better” shade, however I find the lipstick is so sheer that unless I have full makeup on it just isn’t enough. I was trolling the internet as I do and stumbled upon a review for Le Rouge Givenchy Rose Taffetas…


Trying out ESalon

February 18, 2014

Colouring your hair can be an expensive ordeal. Especially once you commit to a colour that isn’t close to your own or if you are covering grey. Salon colouring can run hundreds of dollars and then you need to do it again and again. And then if you don’t like the results you are stuck either admitting to the stylist you hate it (have you done this?!) or…


My top 3 Hand & Body Creams in rotation right now

January 29, 2014

It is that time of year when your skin just feels DRY. Especially if you don’t lock in whatever moisture you have left after a shower. Which means if you are like me you have creams in every bathroom and bedroom, just in case. In fact I have a range of creams from lotions for light dryness to thick ultra hydrating creams for extra dry and eczema prone…


How I get Kate Beckett Hair

January 7, 2014

So I have to admit I have a bit of a Castle obsession. To the point that my two year old points at the TV when it is on and can say Castle. It is funny because we (and by we I mean my & my husband not me and my 2 year old) didn’t really pick up on this show until fall 2013 so we had 5…


Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm

January 6, 2014

Back before Christmas I picked up a few of the new(ish) Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm lip pencils at Target. I am all about matte lipstick lately hence my love affair with Nars but don’t always want to pay top dollar for a good lipstick. Sometimes trying drug store lipsticks can be disappointing, but these are great value for the money.…

Today my girls (Alexis & Camille) over at Elements of Fakery are sharing their top 5 beauty must haves to take on vacation. Read on to find out what they have at the top of their packing list. We both tend to over pack when we go on trips (because we all need 5 red lipsticks in our bag, right?). So when Jane asked us to write a…

Lets Talk Bums with Cottonelle

October 30, 2013

As fashion and beauty bloggers we often put plenty of emphasis on our outward appearance. How to style outfits, how to create a certain hairstyle or get that perfect smokey eye. But looking our best extends beyond our face, hair and clothing. Usually this is where someone says confidence trumps natural beauty and while I think this is true it goes even further. In order to feel confident…


Nars Lipstick; 5 shades in Review

October 15, 2013

If you follow me on instagram you would have seen a while back I went on a bit of a Nars lipstick binge. It was extra point time at Murale & Shoppers Drug Mart and it just seemed like a good idea at the time. You see I wasn’t much of a lipstick person before. Lip gloss yes but lipstick just never seemed to do what I wanted…


March Best {& Worst} of Beauty

March 30, 2013

During the month of March I was fortunate to try out a bunch of new products. Some are just new to me and others are new to market. Dislike; Maybelline Rocket Volume Mascara I will start with the one I really didn’t like. While I was at Fashion Week I got a few samples of Maybelline Mascara and Lipsticks. The Colour Sensational Vivids lipsticks were great. I have…
