Flirty Fall Essentials

Hello lovelies!!

My favourite season is here, it's finally Fall!!

Cozy knit sweaters, adorable boots, scarves and hats, all of the reasons I love Fall. And I can't forget my favourite drinks come back at  Starbucks this time of year as well... HELLO pumpkin spice everything...knock on me all you want ha ha!!

On a serious note getting back to Fall fashion, as I mentioned I absolutely cannot live without my knit sweaters and scarves and one thing that we don't always mention is what's under. Underneath my cozy knits to still feel girly and sexy I always go for a cute bra to amp up my look. Lately I have been leaning towards lacey bralettes or cute a cotton sports bra and Adore Me has some beautiful Fall pieces this year that would be a great addition to any outfit. Whether you want cute and lacey, a great sports bra or that sexy strappy bra for a night out, they've got it all and of course their matching panties as well!

My outfit shows off my long tunic style sweater from Lolë, bugurndy infinity scarf (similar style), a strappy cotton sports bra, guess? watch (similar) and my hand made mala bracelets that are now up for sale on my Etsy Shop!

Sexy lingerie always makes a girl feel special whether it be worn on a netflix and chill night or a night home of pampering yourself after a long bath while reading a book with your favourite glass of wine.

Athleisure is a huge trend for 2016 and especially during the Fall season this year as well, and Adore Me has some beautiful active wear that you can easily incorporate into your Fall wardrobe. I love wearing a pair of printed leggings with a cute sports bra, a leather jacket and runners for an afternoon coffee grab! What about you? And what is your favourite type of bra to wear under your cozy knits?

Stay tuned for more cozy Fall posts coming soon!!!



Got Brablems? Let me solve them!

Hello lovelies,

From the title of this post, I am sure that you are asking "What the heck is a Brablem?". It is exactly what you would think it is, bra-problems. As women, problems with our bras is a situation we run in to daily and we have had enough!!! In this post I am going to share some of the most common brablems, as well as my least fav issues and also give you some tips to get rid of those pesky brablems once and for ALL!! Who's with me?!?!?

Brablem 1: One of my biggest Brablems is my straps always falling down! There is nothing more annoying than constantly having to fix a falling strap through out the day. It didn't even occur to me to think that it's caused by the straps stretching out!

Solution: Tighten your straps roughly once a month, the slightest amount will make the biggest difference. If that doesn't work try to switch to a full coverage or a convertible bra, as they tend to have the narrowest straps.

Brablem 2: I hate this one, especially when wearing a low cut top; cup gaping - space between you and your bra. For those of us with sisters rather than twins, this can be one of our most common brablems.

Solution: Try to go down a cup size or a 1/2 size. Never heard of half sizes? The company Third Love has solved all of our problems with this one, by offering half sizes in bras!! Ie. If you are wearing a 34B and are a victim to cup gaping, Third Love recommends to try their 34AA 1/2 size, to prevent such an issue.
You could also try a push up or plunge style bra to eliminate the extra space on top.

Brablem 3: Band riding up. That heavy, tight feeling in your back that leaves you uncomfortable all day long. This also has a bad effect on our posture, as standing up straight just feels like too much effort.

Solution: Go for a smaller band and keep in mind when going down a band size, you need to go up a cup size. Ie. If you are currently wearing a 36B, you should now get a 34C to rectify the issue.

What are your biggest Brablems?

All solutions provided above are thanks to ThirdLove­! Check out their bras here­ and be sure to use the promo code "brablems" to save 15% off at checkout.

StandFor Shoe Collection Exclusive Preview

Hello lovelies,

A new shoe company StandFor from Portugal is offering a preview of their new Spring/Summer 2015 collection exclusively in the blogosphere and I am so honoured to be one of the chosen few to participate in this sneak peek preview. The world premier is set for April 13th.

StandFor is not just your everyday shoe company each of their collections (this being their first) have a meaning behind them to raise awareness. Their very first collection is "Smoke Less".

"“Smoke Less” is our first statement, which makes it doubly significant. We chose it because we are aware of how important a theme it is. Smoking is a global issue that must be treated with maximum attention."

Smoking is indeed a global issue and effects all of us daily. Growing up in a home of smokers and now having a baby myself, I can definitely relate to how severe it can be to some. I will do anything and everything to protect my little girl and those closest to me and if this collection can bring enough awareness to help one person to cut back or even quit smoking, then the air around us will be that much cleaner and easier to breath.

"We think it is a reasonable thing to ask that people smoke less. Our intention is to promote a reduction of smoke in people’s lives as well as in the environment that surrounds us. We feel that it’s a significant contribution to improve everyone’s life".

Not only does the collection Stand For a global issue, but it also offers super cute shoes!!! The company also offers free international shipping which is a huge plus, as shipping can usually cost a pretty penny. They also offer fast and easy returns on any UNUSED products within fifteen (15) days from the date of delivery. All sizes are european and they have styles for both men and women.

Some of the styles include:

Literal Passive (other colour options)
Fertility (other colour options)

How cute would they look with a pair of skinny jeans, a white tee with a statement necklace and a leather jacket!! They are perfect for everyday wear and you can also go with a solid colour (ie. the Literal shoe) with a dressier outfit or even for the office. 
They also offer more literal graphics and colours if you want something different and a little more fashion forward.

Help StandFor the cause to "Smoke Less" and check out the collection in my personalized shop just for annpaige readers!!! StandFor "Smoke Less"

Thanks so much for reading!!!

Review: Covergirl Flammed Out Mascara

Hello lovelies,

The Covergirl Flammed Out Mascara has been out for a little while now and I finally got my hands on it. I just got the chance to try it the other day and I wanted to do a review for all of you. I got it in the colour 300 very black blaze.

Product Claims:
- 3x the volume for big bold long lashes
- The hourglass wire brush sweeps lashes up and out for buildable volume.

I have very light and pretty long lashes, so I always look for something dark that provides volume, because I already have length. The first thing I noticed about this Mascara was the wand. The shape conforms perfectly to my lashes and makes it easy to cover every single lash with product. The wand also provides even distribution of the product making my lashes voluminous from corner to corner.  As you will see in the picture below, this Mascara definitely lives up to it's "3x the Volume" claim. The Mascara provides gorgeous volume and length without being clumpy or sticky.  It is also easy to take off at the end of the day.  The packaging alone makes it hard not to gravitate towards this product in the store.

You can find the Covergirl Flammed Out Mascara at all drugstores with a retail price of $ - $.

Rating: 10/10
Would I try this product again?

Would I recommend this product to others?
Girl, go get you some!!!!
(Totally took that line from EG!!!)

Have questions or comments about this prodcut?  Leave them below!!!!

Thank you so much for reading and I hope that this post was helpful, if you are in need of a new mascara, or if you weren't sure if this was the right product for you; until now ;) !!!!

Until next time....



How NOT to do your Makeup for the Holidays

Hello lovelies,

The holidays are officially here and most of us have packed schedules with party after party to attend. Getting ready for a holiday party takes a lot more work than a regular party. You are going  to see your entire family, friends that you haven't  seen in a while or all of your co-workers in one room. Seeing all of these people we of course want to look our absolute best and different than we normally do.

For all of us ladies doing our makeup for a special occasion can take forever, at least longer than normal. This post is mostly for fun, as I would never step out of my house looking like this. In this post I have also included some major tips to help save anyone from a makeup mishap for anytime of the year.

- Do wear colour and have fun with it.
- Do NOT wear a bold colour on your eyes, lips and cheeks. Pick ONE feature to be your main focus.
- Do fill in your eyebrows to add more depth to your face and make your eyes open up.
- Do NOT over fill in your brows, this can literally make you look crazy!! Do follow  your natural arch and fill in any sparse  areas.
- Do contour your face and add bronzer or a cream concealer in a shade that is two shades darker than your foundation.
- Do NOT pick a shade that is more than two shades darker than your foundation or it will look unnatural and muddy.
- Do wear false lashes or a volumizing mascara to make your eyes appear wider and pull your entire look together.
- Do NOT wear lashes that are too dramatic, especially if you already have a bold eye look going on - you don't want to hide the masterpiece that you just  created on your lids. You also don't  want to look like you have a critter hanging over your eyes.
- Do wear glitter and a highlighter to beighten up your face and help add dimension.
- Do NOT wear a highlighter that is too light for your complexion and Do NOT dip your face in glitter.

I hope that you may have gotten a laugh from this post and also some helpful tips!!!

Have an amazing holiday everyone and Merry Christmas!!!!



Broadway & Kiss Nail designs

Hello lovelies,

I recently got a package in the mail fr Influenster Canada including two different sets of nail designs. I love anything that is easy to do and offers a polished look all at the same time and that is exactly what both of these sets offer. 

The first is a press on nail design from Broadway Nails - Media Darling
To start the colour is a gorgeous hot pink and can go with almost any look. They are a medium length and the package has several different nail sizes, making them a perfect for anyone. Inside the package there is also a prep wipe to get your nails ready for the press-ons. The thing I love most about these nails is how effortless they are and how amazing they look. 

Don't have time for a salon trip? Forgo the salon and buy these instead!!! It only takes a few minutes to apply them and then you are set for however long you want to wear them (recommend time is one week). Everyone will think that you got your nails done professionally, because they look that good!  If you only plan on wearing them for one day or a few hours for a special occasion, then you can totally reuse them, just keep the plastic backing. 

The second set in the package is from Kiss - Double Lutz
This set is great for a classic French tip; a classic bejeweled Fremch at that. The best part about this French tip is that you don't have to worry about only one hand looking good when doing them yourself, because they are stickers!!! No more shacky lopsided French tips on your opposite hand. The set includes 22 stickers and you can choose if you want a thin or thicker tip. When applying the stickers you can also cut and reshape them to fit your nails perfectly. 

If you want to up amp up your style even more you can paint your nails a different colour before the application or place them on top of your press-on nails. Below I cut the jewels off and placed them on the bottom of my press-on nail from Broadway nails and made a half moon design. 

Depending on how often you get your nails wet and for how long, the press-ons can last for up to 10 days and th stickers for up to 7. I have a new baby, so I am constantly washing my hands a million times a day making the sticker last me four days before they started to peel at the top (it looks just like chipped polish). Four days for me is still a long time and ai was actually surprised they lasted as long as they did. 

 These styles are so versatile and easy, that you will never have to go to a salon again (or you can at least spread out your visits). The stickers and press-ons will also keep your nails looking and feeling a lot healthier than constant salon trips, that can reek habit on your nails. 

Both retail for under $10 at select drugstores and department stores. 

Would you or will you be trying out any of the above styles?

If you've tried out either brand before let me know your thoughts below!!!

Until next time....



Falling for Neutrals - ootd

Hello lovelies,

Neutrals are the easiest things to wear and they can easily go with anything and everything.  With this look I have paired two natural pieces with like colours together. I also added a little bit of volume on the top half of my outfit with a loose fitting blouse.  Being a mom now means I can't go all out with my accessories, so I kept it simple with a pair of pearls and a cuff bracelet.

Top: Ricki's (old)
Jeans: Dynamite (old)
Pearls: DIY
Cuff: forever21

As you can see my little girl also had a cameo with me in my pictures!!! Everytime she sees a camera the girl gets excited and always poses, she is definitely her mamas baby!!!

Look out for my post with Brodway and Kiss Nails coming in next couple of days.



Mommy Ootd

Hello lovelies,

It has been a long while since I last posted an ootd. As most of you will know, I recently had a baby and she literally takes up all of my time. Whenever my fiancé and I get to go out, it is typically with our little girl and most of the time are outings are to the grocery store or Target/ Wal-Mart for baby stuff.

When we do go out I still try to dress like me, because I don't want to lose my personality or style. I've always been a scarf lover and not only are scarves a fashion piece, but now they also serve as a functional item to cover me and my girl up if I have to nurse her while we're out. So, you will most always see me wearing a scarf now instead of a necklace (also because she grabs and pulls on everything, so necklaces and dangling earrings for a while).

Here is one of my latest outfits.

Chanel inspired tee - Ricki's
Blazer - H&M
Jeans - Smart Set
Scarf - Ricki's

Until next time....



Minimal Statement - Outfit

Hello lovelies,

Are you heading out to dinner after work, or do you need an outfit for an event? Here is the perfect look.

When shopping for a Fall wardrobe, there are some basics that every woman needs, including a classic white dress. The dress I chose for this look is a basic shift dress with an embellished collar, making your jewelry choices that much easier.

Another piece that we all need is a coloured blazer. A coloured blazer is great for every season and this Fall the colours are navy and burgundy. I chose a burgundy blazer for this look as the statement piece to give a more fashion forward look.

When wearing an outfit with a clothing item as the statement piece, tone everything else down by adding neutral pieces like I did with the purse and jewelry.

Shift dress - Dynamite
Blazer - Smart Set
Two toned pumps - Aldo 
Tote - Dynamite
Earrings - Aldo
Watch - Aldo 

Would you wear this look?

Until next time....



Classic layers

Hello lovelies,

Fall is all about layering different textures and patterns and when doing so I love to look great and also feel warm and cozy and I have the perfect outfit for that. Whether you are heading out to lunch or to work you can easily tweak this look to suit your needs.
When transitioning to Fall I love neutrals, because they make your look appear as of you spent a lot time getting ready, when really you just threw everything together last minute - at least that's usually my case.

A perfect polish for Fall if you don't want anything too dark or bold:
Nail Polish in Malala - Julep
An easy to wear top that goes with practically everything:
Printed sleeveless tunic - Dynamite
A statement piece that is so comfy and cozy:
Long open cardigan - Dynamite
Black jeans need no explanation:
Levi jeans - Aritzia     
A comfy and stlyish bootie that helps to pull the whole look together:
Disantis bootie - Aldo
A classic tote for any occasion:
Michael Kors Saffiano leather tote 
A scarf to add a touch of colour:
Scarf - Ardene
Would you wear this look?
What are your favourite go to pieces for fall?


DIY Ombré Hair - Brown and Platinum Blonde

Hello lovelies,

Having  a new baby doesn't give me much time to myself, let alone enough time to bleach and tone my roots in one night. With that being said I decided it was time for a change in the hair department. Ombré hair has been around for awhile and once done it is completely maintenance free - at least for a few months - and that is exactly my what I need at the moment.

For as long as I can remember I have always done my hair myself (aside from my salon mistake when going blonde) and I prefer it that way. I get full control over my do. Below are the steps I took to achieve my new gradient "ombré" hair....

I bought a light golden brown dye -  Garnier #63 Light golden brown. I didn't want anything too dark. I wanted the colour to still be light and also to make an easier blend as my hair lightens towards my ends.

I also bought a Blonde hair dye - L'Oreal Excellence Creme in CC1 Soft Medium Ash Blonde. This was to darken some of the Blonde I already had.

Step 1:
I dyed my hair with the brown dye from my roots to just above my chin. I left the dye in for roughly 20 minutes.

Step 2:
I washed and blow dryed my hair.

Step 3:
Using the Blonde hair dye, I used a dye comb to place the dye over some of my existing blonde locks. I did this more sporaticly to give a natural and almost seamless appearance. I also used the blonde over some of the brown strands that I had just previously dyed to make them lighter.
I left the blonde dye in for about 20-30 minutes and then I washed and blow dryed my hair once again.

I left the ends of my hair platinum, so in total I have four colours in my hair.

That is it, those are all of the steps I took in achieving my new ombré hair. So easy, right?

I am so in love with my new hair and it looks a lot more natural than the platinum colour I had previously (although I loved that just as much). My new do is going to be a lot easier to maintain now too, which is just what I need being a new mom.

If you want to change your hair and try an ombré style,  I would highly suggest doing it yourself or get a friend to help you out. In total I only spent about $15 on hair dye, compared to the $200 that I would've spent in a salon.

I hope that this post helps any of you who want to try a similar hair style/colour to mine and if you have any questions or comments please leave them below!!!

Schick Intuition Reviews and Winner

Hello lovelies,

The winner of the $100 Visa gift card is....

Cathy K


Here is what you all thought of the new Schick Intuition Advanced Moisture Razor, aka my favourite razor of all time!

Cathy K:
Love this razor!  I have been using the razor for almost a week and I am loving the results.  I often have dry and irritated skin after shaving and to my delight my skin has been soft and hydrated after using my Schick Intuition Razor.  The ribbons of moisture allow for a quick and outstanding job! I love that the razor comes with an attachment to keep it stored neatly in the shower.  It's a great addition to have an extra cartridge in a plastic case to make it so convenient when needing a quick touch up/refill while on vacation and/or leaving the gym.  I have been highly recommending the razor to everyone I know.  Thank you!

Angie M:
I recently received the new Schick intuition advanced moisture razor to try and review. Before I tried the razor I noticed the beautiful scent of shea and you could see the ribbons of moisturizer . It also came with a hook so you could keep it in the showerand out of childrens reach, which I loved and worked great. I also noticed that it came with two razor cartridge. I loved that you only need to wet the razor and that you did not need a shaving cream.It was a very smooth shave ,with no cuts or razor burn. My skin felt so soft after shaving like I already had lotion on. 

Amy M:
The first thing I noticed about the Schick Intuition Advanced Moisture Razor was its size.  The razor is much larger than my usual razor, both in the handle and the head.  Despite its larger size, this razor felt comfortable in my hands and I appreciated the rubber grips on the handle to give me greater control of the razor.  The shea butter shave bar smelt wonderful, a fresh and clean scent.  While shaving with this razor I just wet it in the shower and proceeded to shave.  The shave bar lathered up and eliminated the need for a shave gel.  I was leary about getting a close shave as I felt the shave bars would prevent a close shave. However I was quite surprised that I got a close, comfortable shave.  My legs felt soft, moisturized and were hair-free.  I was quite impressed with this razor and would definitely recommend it to others to try.

Brenda P:
Thank you for giving me the chance to try the new Schick Intuition Advanced Moisture razor.  I had a chance to try it last night and I loved the close shave I got from it.  I love the rubber grip on the handle of the razor, it makes it easy to handle.  My legs were left feeling soft and smooth and I was left with a nice, sweet shea butter scent.  The only downsides was that due to the size, I found it a little difficult to do around bony contours like my knees and ankles.  All in all, it is a great razor and I would recommend it.  

Cassey C:
I love that the Schick razor is surrounded by the buit in shaving cream, which is convenient and saves me time to use a separate shaving cream. Usually when I use other razors, I need to apply lotion afterwards due to dryness but after using this Schick razor with shea butter, it moisturizes my legs really nicely and save me the step of applying lotion. Furthermore, the packaging of this razor is much better than their previous all plastic packaging as it is more environmentally friendly. I would definitely recommend this razor as it saves me time and makes shaving much more enjoyable.

Rachel B:
Here is my review for the Schick Razor. I used the razor to shave under my arm pit, I like the fact that it has the conditioning solid around the razor so you don't need shaving gel. Compared to other razors that have it only at the top or don't even have it at all. I like that it has 4 blades which give me a really clean shave. The Shea Butter scent and moisturizer is an added value to the razor which most other razor don't offer. The only feature of the razor I don't like is I find it a little big when shaving under my arm pit. I think if it was a little smaller it would have been better. Overall I would purchase this razor in the near future. 

Ena B:
Here is my review for the Schick Razor. I used the razor to shave under my arm pit, I like the fact that it has the conditioning solid around the razor so you don't need shaving gel.

Overall I would purchase this razor in the near future. 

Naomi B:
I was very impressed by this razor and it's capabilities. It gave me a really nice shave and my legs felt very soft and smooth afterwards. While shaving the razor glided very nicely and it removed my leg hairs with just one pass without me needing to go over it more then once. I love that this razor eliminated the need of using shaving cream/gel. Plus the built in soap bar lathered very nicely & smells amazing. This razor is very  and it was great using it!

The Schick Intuition razor is an absolute must-have for the summer, when dresses and shorts make up the typical mode du jour. I love how easy it is to use... the refillable conditioning solids pop on with little fuss and lather up with just a little bit of water. My skin is always left super soft and smooth after every shave. Highly recommended!

Jonnie H:
The Schick Intuition Advanced Moisture is the best razor I've ever used. My legs are left feeling smooth and soft with no knicks or cuts. The moisturizing solid along with the four blades makes shaving my legs so quick and comfortable. The razor glides really smoothly and you can totally feel the extra moisture throughout the day. As an added bonus this razor smells heavenly and comes with a neat shower hook to keep it handy but out of the way!

Sarah J:
At first I was a little skeptical about using such a big razor, because most of the ones I use are always smaller and compact with many blades. Surprisingly I was wrong and I got such a nice clean shave, the soap around the blade left my skin very soft and smelling great, which was a bonus without me having to use shaving cream. Over all I am very pleased with this razor and I definitely will continue to use it in the future and would recommend it to others especially because it is two and one deal. Thank you very much for this opportunity :)

Thanks again to everyone who entered and sent me their reviews!

Until next time...

Change your look

Hello lovelies,

We all like to change up our look every once in awhile and in many different ways. Sometimes changing our look could mean trying a new lip shade or eyeshadow colour. It could also mean adding something to an outfit that we normally wouldn't wear, like different shoes or a new jacket. Changing up your look could also mean changing your eye colour by wearing coloured contacts.

I recently got the opportunity to change my look and to try out a pair of contacts from Dream Eyes and SpookyEyes. I don't typically wear contacts, so I wanted to try something different. I picked the Leopard Blue contact lenses and the quality is amazing. I have to admit that they look more grey in person, but what I love is that unlike other companies they don't look pixely or like a computerized graphic.  Even though they are a print they still look "natural".

SpookyEyes offers a variety of different colours, prints and graphics. They have something for everyone. The contacts are non prescription and FDA approved, so anyone can wear them. If you want to see what you would look like with a different eye colour, or if you want something crazy for Halloween then SpookyEyes would be perfect for you. They ship internationally and they're shipping time is super fast.
How do you change up your look when you want to look "different"?

If you live in Canada and have not yet entered by giveaway for the opportunity to try the new Schick Intuition Advanced Moisture Razor and the chance to win $100 then what are you waiting for?!?!?

Until next time....


Summer Vacay Essentials

Hello lovelies,
We are currently in the midst of one of my favourite seasons, Spring, but trolling soon around the corner is Summer and Summer means vacation and weekend getaways!!!

With a newborn on the cusp of arriving for me, this summer will be more about weekend getaways then actual off shore vacations. But, who says weekend beach getaways can't be just as fun.
So, whether you are headed to a hot sunny destination, going on a road trip or taking a long weekend to bask in the sun near home, here are my Summer Vacation Essentials.

A cute swimsuit - from dynamite.
I love this swimsuit because it is flattering (for the top and bottom) and hello it's purple cheetah print!!!

A beach cover up
I got this when I was a teenager and still have it to this day, 'cause it has dolphins on it and it's huge. With cover ups the bigger the better for me, because they offer so much versatility.

- My favourite not too oversized sunnies from Dolce & Gabanna

For sun protection and tanning I love Hawaiian Tropic products and these are my go to's:
- SPF 4(the lower the better, because I am so pasty) oil spray with UVA and UVB protection. This stuff literally smells like a piña colada, yummie!!!
Sun Protection:
- 12h moisturization Silk Hydration sunscreen with Spf 30.
After Sun:
- Silk Hydration after sun moisturizer with aloe gel and 24h hydration. I absolutely love this stuff. It feels soft and cooling on your skin and is perfect if you got a little too much sun.

- Garnier fructis sleek and shine leave-in conditioner. As a blonde I need to protect my hair from the water whether it be salt water like the ocean or even just chlorine from a regular pool. To do so I wet my hair, slather this stuff all over and stick my hair in a bun. I do this to prevent my hair from absorbing the salt and/or chemicals. Instead my hair can absorb the conditioner and be that much softer.
If I'm not going in the water I use:
- Garnier fructis sleek and shine thermo-sleek spray to prevent my hair from getting heat damage. No this product is not uva or uvb protective, but I find it works just the same. (You can however get similar products that are meant strictly for sun protection.)

Other essentials include my fav razor for on the go; Shick Hydro Silk, a travel manicure set and my fav deordorant from Dove.
Every girl needs protection from mother nature as well, so I always make sure I bring a few tampons with me, no matter what time of the month it is. And, in my bag I have Playtex 360° protection Sport Fresh Balance. This brand has the best on the go protection (with a light fresh scent)and I need that as I will be running and chasing after a baby all Summer.

Face and Makeup:
No matter where you are going and no matter what anyone says, as a girl you always need a little makeup, it just makes us feel and look our best.
My makeup essentials for a weekend getaway include:
- Garnier BB cream in light/medium
- Maybelline age rewind dark circle eraser concealer in fair.
- My Naked2 palette from Urban decay
- Essence silky touch blush in 30 secret it-girl. This colour is perfect for when you have (or want) a tan, because it adds the most beautiful glow to any complexion.
- Stila stay all day waterproof volumizing mascara. Nobody wants raccoon eyes from jumping out of the water or after laying in the sun too long and having your mascara melt off.
- Blistex tropical lip balm with Spf 15
- My favourite moisturizer that I have been using for years!!!
Neutrogena Healthy Skin face lotion with Spf 15.
- Jergens Natural Glow daily face mositurizer with Spf 20 in fair to medium.
You always need a gradual tanner for your face, as the complexion of our face will never match the rest of our body. This one is my fav, because it is light and doesn't clog your pores. You can also mix it with your regular mositurizer or BB cream, so it is even lighter on your skin.
- Biore Make-up removing towelettes. The best for removing even the toughest waterproof mascara at the end of the day. Also great to refresh your skin after a long day in the sun.
What are your Summer getaway plans for this year and what will you be brining with you!?!

Easy and Stunning Manicure

Hello lovelies,

Please excuse my lack of posts lately,  as I just had my baby girl a week ago (wooowhoo!!!) and had been in and out of the hospital for a little over a month prior to her birth(we are now and both home and doing great). If you want to know more check out the link for my mommy blog above, I will be doing an update on there soon.

On to today's post....

I recently received my first ever voxbox from influenster and could not wait to show you all what I got.
If you are unaware influenster is a free subscription like service where you get the chance to try out new products and all you have to do once you get them is, to tell the world your thoughts! You sign up for different "badges" and earn points towards new boxes. Super easy to sign up and it's totally free. If you haven't signed up yet, I highly recommend you do!!

Within this box were two different imPress press on manicure designs by broadway nails. To be honest I never thought press on nails looked realistic and they always fall off within a couple of days. But, after trying these ones my mindset for press on nails has forever changed. The application is so easy and you get 24 nails in 12 different sizes.
Being a new mommy, I have no time or energy to give myself a full out manicure, so these are perfect. They are fast (you can even apply them in the car on your way to wherever your going) and actually last, plus if you keep the backings you can reuse them. What I love most about them is how glossy they are without looking like plastic. Also the length is perfect, not too long and too short. Being artificial also means no maintenance, momma like!!! If you were to go to a salon and get shellac or acrylic, you would have to go back and get them filled or maintained, but that is completely unnecessary with these. With so many different designs and colours offered the possibilities are endless and you can change them whenever you want, without damaging your real nails. For the price that you pay to buy these press on nails ($10.99 CAD), they are so worth it and I would definitely purchase them in more colours and designs.

What are your current go to nail products for the Spring?

Until next time....



Spring 2014 Fashion Trends

Hello lovelies,

Spring weather is slowly starting to arrive here and it has inspired me to do this post once again, as I do every year.

I love Spring fashion because it is the introduction to a new and beautiful season both in Fashion and in nature. Colours become alive and it is finally time to get rid of all of the dreaded layers and of course our winter boots.

Here are some of my favourite fashion trends for this upcoming season...

The ever loving Pastel trend:
Wear a full coloured suit or be more subtle and pair your fav pastel with neutrals or even your most beloved denim.

Cropped Boxy Jackets:
Wear this trend as an easy work to dinner look. Pair with a narrow bottom and sexy heels or booties for the perfect modern look.

Bomber Jackets:
Bomber jackets aren't just for exercising anymore, they are now for the exact opposite. I love this trend with a simple tank, dark denim, a statement necklace and killer heels. The bomber jacket will easily replace any blazer you have and still offer the same versatility.

Wide leg trousers:
They are finally coming back!!!
Find the right shape and fit for your body type and remember balance. Cropped tops are easy way to update this look.

Denim on denim(The Denim suit):
Wear your favourite chambray top or denim jacket with your favourite denim jeans in a similar (if not the same) tone it's that simple. Pair with a pop of colour underneath like coral or a subtle pastel and some rockin' boots.

Printed Pants:
Denim or trousers it doesn't matter, print is all over our bottoms. Subtle or bold in your face the prints (and colours) are there. Wear with neutrals or go all out and wear with a matching coloured top.

Does this season not remind anyone else of the 90's once again? I love it!!!!

What's your favourite trend for this Spring?

Palazzo pants - forever 21
Beige Cropped boxy blazer - dynamite
Black and white printed pants - dynamite
Pastel short suit - forever 21
Denim on denim - guess
Colour blocked bomber jacket - dynamite
