The Fall Tag!


Hi everyone! ¬†How was your weekend? It’s a bit chilly this Tuesday and I for one, am welcoming cooler temperatures.

Speaking of cooler weather, I saw this tag on Nicole’s site PrettyRuffLife¬†(who by the way is hosting a giveaway)¬†and thought it would be a cute post for today. ¬†Let’s jump into it!

What is your favourite Fall colour?

I would have to say orange (in all its variations), burgundy and red-hued browns. These make for lovely eyeshadow colors.

What is your favourite Fall lip product? 

I would say that a good lip exfoliator is key during fall. ¬†I don’t really stick to wearing certain lip colors for fall but no shade looks good with flaky lips so I make sure to keep handy my Sara Happ Lip Scrub. This stuff is ah-mazing!

What is your favourite Fall accessory? 

A scarf and nice coat.

What is your favourite Fall nail polish? 

A dark, vampy nail color is always fun and OPI Linkin Park After Dark fits the bill. ¬†I also love orange shades like OPI Chromatic Orange and though I have’t tried this one yet, the curry yellow shade, Never a Dulles Moment, from the Washington DC OPI collection looks so unique and fun.

What is your favourite Fall scent? 

Anything that has cinnamon mixed in. ¬†So weather it’s pumpkin cinnamon or apple cinnamon, I’m in.

What is your favourite Fall fashion?

Boots, coats and comfy leggings. I’m also a huge fan a warm fluffy socks.

What is your favourite Fall Starbucks drink? 

I don’t indulge in them often but I have a few. ¬†The first is of course, the ever popular Pumpkin Spice Latte. ¬†I’m also loving the Chile Mocha Drink they have this year and nothing beats a classic and luxurious hot chocolate.

What is your favourite thing about Fall? 

Cooler weather, leaves changing, candles, leggings and the scent of fall offerings and the seasonal treats.

What are you being for Halloween? 

I’m not sure yet but in the past I’ve dressed up as a zombie and the Evil Queen from Once Upon A Time.

What is your favourite fall hairstyle?

I have no clue what fall hairstyles consist of but the quickest thing for me is to throw my hair in a bun so I guess I’ll say that.

That’s it for this post!

What are your favorite aspects of fall?

July Favorites 2016!

July Favorites

Happy Tuesday and second day of August! ¬†How was your weekend? ¬†If you follow me on Instagram, you got a sneak peek of a new exciting opportunity that’s happening in my life. ¬†I’m setting up shop inside a studio and will be offering skin treatments twice a week very soon! ¬†I am so excited and nervous at the same time. ¬†Those who know me know that it has been a very bumpy road for me in the esthetics arena but here I am and I am so thankful that God has provided this opportunity for me. ūüôā

Here’s a picture of the room I’ll be renting.

In other news, July has come and gone which brings us to my monthly favorites post. ¬†Ready to see what I’ve loved this month? Keep reading!

Sol de Janeiro Brazillian Bum Bum Cream 

I’ve seen this item floating around on Instagram and has been recommended by a few beauty blogger friends so I picked one up while I was at Sephora. A blend of¬†guaran√°, nourishing cupua√ßu butter and coconut oil helps your body look and feel its smoothest and tightest. I love the coconut smell of this and how it provides skin with intense hydration. ¬†The texture of my legs looks a bit smoother so who knows what will happen with continued use.

Jo Malone Wood Sage and Sea Salt Cologne 

I received this last month for my birthday and I absolutely love it. ¬†It’s woodsy without being overpowering and perfect for any season if you ask me.

Jo Malone Mimosa and Cardamom Cologne 

Along with the Wood Sage and Sea Salt Cologne, I got a sample of the Mimosa and Cardamom one and it smells so delicate and nice. ¬†Based on the suggestion that you can layer the fragrances, I blended it with the Wood Sage and Sea Salt and guys, it’s such a great combination. ¬†With scents of mimosa, cardamom, tonka bean, sandalwood, heliotrope, Damask rose, it softly mellows out the woodsy aspect of the other cologne if you want a more subtle and sweet version of the Wood Sage and Sea Salt. ¬†I highly recommend it.

Benefit Cosmetics Dew the Hoola Soft Matte Liquid Bronzer 

Featured in my July Play! by Sephora bag, this liquid bronzer is very easy to use and looks natural on my skin tone.

Marcelle Xtension Plus Curl Mascara 

A sample that came with my July Birchbox, this mascara does not leave my eyelashes clumpy and does a nice job of providing a fan-like effect.

MAC Powder Blush in Melba

Another item from my birthday haul, I’ve been using this blush almost every single day because it just looks so natural and blends in effortlessly.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Shine Sculpting Shine Lipstick in Fairest 

The last item on here from my birthday haul, this lipstick is sort of like a MLBB shade that’s just a tad darker. I love using it alone or layered over my ColourPop Echo Park¬†liquid lipstick to create a customized shade that has a little bit more shine and hydration. The magnetic cap is a neat feature.

9Round Kickbox Fitness 

At the beginning of this month, I joined 9Round Kickbox Fitness and though I leave looking like a super sweat drenched mess, it’s also a lot of fun. ¬†With all that goes on in my life at times, it feels so good to just punch out your frustration. There are no class times which is nice because you can pop in anytime you have 30 minutes to work out and be done or do some extra rounds. ¬†Plus the owner, Dan, is very helpful and has modifications available in case you need it, which I do at times.

July Favorites End

That’s it for this month! ¬†What are your favorites and do you have any advice/suggestions for starting your own business? Let me know in the comments below!¬†

Hi everyone!

First of all, I’d like to thank you for all the birthday wishes I’ve received this past week/weekend! ¬†It really made my day. ūüôā ¬†I haven’t responded to them here on the blog but I will get to them soon enough.

Thanks so much for the support! 


It’s My Birthday 2016!


Hi everyone!

It’s a special day today as it’s my birthday! Yay! ¬†It also coincides with my sister’s graduation so that means I’m a little behind on catching up with all things blog related. No worries, though-everything should be back to normal next week. ¬†ūüôā

Thank you all so much for your support!  xo


Birthday Wish List 2016!

Hi everyone!

With my birthday coming up next week, I thought it would be fun to put together a list of a few items I’ve had my eye on, and serve as inspiration for possible birthday gifts. Enjoy!

Estee Lauder Pure Color Blush

I’ve heard great things about Estee Lauder blushes and while I was at Macy’s, I checked out the color selection and it didn’t disappoint. ¬†Peach Passion is of special interest.

EL Blush

Maison Margiela ‘REPLICA’ Beach Walk¬†

I spritzed this on in the store and fell in love with the scent.  With notes of Bergamot, Pink Pepper, Lemon, Ylang Ylang, Coconut Milk, Heliotrope, Musk, Cedarwood and Benzoin, it screams summer.

Beach Walk

Chanel Makeup 

No beauty arsenal is complete without at least one proper, Chanel makeup item weather it be a lipstick or blush.

Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation

I received a sample from Nordstrom of this foundation and I love it. ¬†It’s light-weight, gives a nice sheen and makes skin look like skin.


CT Light Wonder

Aesthetics Exposed Mastering Skin Care in a Medical Setting and Beyond by Terri Wojak

The always skin care nerd, I love reading and keeping myself educated on skincare.  This book would complement by collection perfectly.

Aesthetics Exposed


It would be nice to purchase a basic camera for my blog. ūüôā


Gift Cards

Gift cards are always appreciated. ¬†Anything from Ulta, Sephora, Nordstrom or Macy’s would be highly appreciated.

Gift Cards

Of course, whatever I receive, I know I’ll love. ūüôā

Motivational Tuesday: This Letter is to You!


Hi everyone! ¬†It’s been a while since I shared a motivational quote and yesterday I stumbled across one that is perfect for anyone going through a difficult time.

“This letter is to you. ⠀

The you that’s had a rough week. The you that seems to be under constant storm clouds. The you that feels invisible. The you that doesn’t know how much longer you can hold on. The you that has lost faith. The you that always blames yourself for everything that goes wrong.

To you.

You are incredible. You make this world a little bit more wonderful. You have so much potential and so many things left to do. You have time. Better things are coming your way, so please hang in there. You can do it. ‚Ä̬†

This fast-paced life can quickly become overshadowed by disappointments and despair, but remember that you are here for a reason and that you matter. ¬†Tomorrow could be the day your prayers are answered so have faith and don’t give up.


The Beauty Blogger Tag!

Beauty Blogger Tag

Hi everyone! ¬†How was everyone’s Easter weekend?

It’s been awhile since I have done a tag but I thought it would be something fun to do today.¬†I was nominated by Rahma¬†from Glamorous Etioles¬†for the Beauty Blogger Tag so if you’d like to get to know more about me and beauty, keep reading.

The Rules for this Tag:

Tag the blogger that nominated you
Answer the questions you were given
Nominate 10 bloggers whose blog is about beauty/lifestyle/fashion
Name 10 questions for your nominees to answer
Inform the bloggers you chose that you nominated them

1. Have you ever done yoga and did you like it?

Yes and yes. To be honest though, when I first started yoga, I didn’t care for it. ¬†It wasn’t until I was invited to attend a yoga workshop hosted by Danielle Cuccio that I actually learned to appreciate it. ¬†The Powerflow session was done to a great playlist and I’ve been hooked ever since.

2.What products do you splurge on?

Skincare and makeup of course. ūüėČ

3.What products do you save on?

I would say nail polish mainly because I hardly buy any.

4.What is your best tip for maintaining healthy skin?

Sunscreen is a must for healthy skin, so rain or shine, chemical or physical, make sure to apply it.  Also, keeping your skin hydrated is important as well.

5.What do you use to remove your makeup?

It depends what I have in my skincare arsenal.  Makeup wipes, cleansing oils and cream based cleansers are a few that I like to keep around.

6.How do you maintain your eyebrows (example, threading/waxing)?

Threading, tweezing and sometimes waxing. ¬†My eyebrows grow like wildfire so if I don’t keep up monthly maintenance routine, I need to resort to all three.

7:What is your favorite mascara?

At the moment, I would have to say Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Mascara

8.Where do you buy most of your makeup?

I would say Sephora and online about equally.

9.What is your favorite shade of lipstick?

An unfair question to ask a beauty blogger and beauty addict if you ask me. ¬†However, currently I’m in love with any and all pink/nude shades.

10.What is your favorite perfume?

Ange ou Demon Le Secret by Givenchy. ¬†It’s a bit on the pricey side but I love to buy it when it comes in a set.

That’s it for this tag. ¬†I hope you enjoyed reading a little bit more about me and thanks to Rahma for the nomination! ¬†Check out her blog and give her a follow while you’re at it. ¬†Consider yourself tagged if you want to participate.
