 Happy Friday everyone. I haven't worn these sneakers since early fall and I have been craving to wear them ever since. Finally, there has been some milder weather for me to wear these comfortable sneakers and what better way to wear them then with jeans, a slouchy tee, a blazer and of course a statement necklace to give the look a little more.

Four more weeks of winter and I couldn't be happier!!
Thank you so much for stopping by, xo!

First off I just want to say that I am so happy that I finally got the Michael Kors Hamilton bag! I know, I am so late in getting one but it's better late than never right? I have always loved these bags, especially in the Luggage colour {cognac} and I love that you can wear this colour all year round and not just in the colder months. This colour works for all seasons.

My lovely boyfriend ended up getting this bag for me for my birthday a week and a half ago and I am absolutely in love. I ended up getting the Saffiano Leather instead of the softer leather bag because I want this bag to keep it's shape and not get too worn looking over time. I am always drawn to soft leathers and majority of my bags are that, so it's nice to have something different added to my collection.

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day, xo!!

Over the past few weeks, I have been having some under eye circles and haven't been looking "awake" and bright eyed like I use to. I have been getting a good amount of sleep but for some reason, no matter how much concealer I use, I still look tired and not myself.

I was on a mission to find a brightener that I could use under my eyes as well as other area's on my face. I have heard great reviews and have even tried a few samples of the Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat luminizing pen which is an amazing product and I really liked it but I wanted to try something else and something a little cheaper. I ended up going to MAC instead and I was looking at the Prep + Prime Hightlighter in the colour "Light Boost." They have a tone of different colours depending on your skin tone.

I have a slight pink/purple undertone under my eyes, so I wasn't able to get the Prep + Prime in Radiant Rose like I wanted to. I really wanted something brightening which would have been the Radiant Rose but because I already have a slight pink/purple undertone under my eyes, that colour wouldn't have worked for me. If you don't have any pink or purple undertones, than you could totally get away with that colour but if you are like me, then you have to go with a colour that is more of a yellow tone to cancel out the pink/purple tone.

Let me just say that this highlighting pen in Light boost is a-m-a-z-i-n-g and what a difference it has made under my eyes. I look so much more awake and it has really improved the appearance of my under eye circles. I would definitely say that this highlighting pen is very comparable to the Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat and it's cheaper also which is a bonus!!

Not only do I use this highlighting pen under my eyes, I also use it to highlight my face as well.

Here is how I use it:


I use this highlighting pen two ways depending on what my under eyes look like that day.
I will either wear the Prep + Prime alone or if I look really tired, I will apply my skin toned under eye concealer on first and blend that in and afterwards I apply the Prep + Prime Highlighter in Light Boost over top and blend that all in.

You could set your under eyes with a translucent powder afterwards which I do sometimes but a lot of times I don't because this highlighter gives a nice sheen and I don't want to cover that up since this product is suppose to highlight and make you more awake with the brightening affects of the product.


I will apply it to the tops of my cheek bones, creating a "C" shape around my eye, including my temples and just above my brows. I will also add a little bit down the bridge of my nose as well as my cupids bow {above the lip}.

I love that this is a multi-purpose product and I can use it on all areas of my face. This product has been a life saver and I don't think I could ever not use an under eye brightener after using this product. Even if you don't have under eye circles or discolouration under your eyes, this product will still work and make you even more bright eyed and awake looking.

Happy Valentine's Day Loves!!

This is once again another Valentine's inspired look. I love wearing collard shirts underneath sweaters to give more of a preppy look and also to add more colour to an outfit as well. These red shoes are seriously a favorite of mine and don't even get me started on this necklace. I am in L-O-V-E with it. Necklaces like these are the best because you can dress them up or make any casual outfit have a little more glam.

I hope all of you love birds have an amazing Valentine's Day, you deserve it!

Since Valentine's Day is my favorite holiday of the whole year, I have dedicated this whole week of blog posts to it. I am absolutely in LOVE with this outfit and I might just wear this one on Friday when I get to spend the entire day with my sweetheart. What do you all think?

I would love to wear a dress for Valentine's Day but who am I kidding, I live in Canada and I would absolutely freeze and with my luck, there will probably be a snow storm on that day. Not practical in the least lol..

Have a great Wednesday loves, xoxo!

 There is nothing better than dressing in bright colours during the gloomy winter months. There is something about the colour yellow that is just so fresh and cheery and I love dressing in this colour when I need a "pick me up." To add even more colour to the look, I chose to go with this infinity scarf that has pinks and other colours throughout as well as a bright pop of pink on the lips.

Happy Wednesday Loves, xo!
P.s. It's my Birthday tomorrow and I am not sure if I am excited or depressed about it lol!

Overdoing on anything like drinking too much caffeine, alcohol, eating too much sugar and salt, is definitely going to take a toll on our skin and show the ugly side effects. It's a no brainer that all of these can dehydrate our skin, making it dry and blotchy and sugar and salts break down elastin and collagen causing dullness and wrinkles.

Over touching your acne is a no no. Instead of battling with that annoying zit, cleanse your face with a salicylic acid cleanser with moisturizing ingredients. Using a cleanser with little moisturizing will dry out your skin which will cause even more acne breakouts and the current breakouts you have will stick around even longer.  

If your face is already dry, cleanse less or use a cleanser that is for dry skin {a milk cleanser}. Over washing strips your natural oils. Do your full face wash routine at night, including toner and moisturizer and when you wake up, instead of washing your face again, just rinse with cool water to keep your natural oils {warm/hot water will strip your natural oils}. Of course if you have oily skin, keep washing your face twice a day.

Exfoliating is definitely important but it's not suppose to hurt while doing it. Using an exfoliator that is too gritty is not good and if you are using an exfoliator that leaves your skin red/blotchy and even makes your skin burn and tingle afterwards is also not a good thing. Using exfoliators that are too gritty or harsh peels can cause irritation, inflammation, pre mature aging {wrinkles}, brown spots and can even clog pores resulting in acne breakouts.
Use a gentle exfoliator with micro beads or sugar once or twice a week depending on your skin type or use a mild peel with lactic acid once a week.

Getting less than 7 hours of sleep can make your skin dull, puffy {especially around your eyes} and can cause pre mature aging {fine lines} down the road. If you wake up with puffy eyes, slice a cucumber and put a slice over each eye and leave it for 5-10 minutes or grab an ice pack {wrap it in a towel of course} and place it on each eye for a few minutes. This will eliminate swelling and puffiness.

 Not only sleeping the right way {which technically is on your back side to eliminate wrinkles and crease marks on your face} but choosing the right pillow case is the major factor in your sleep routine.

As gross as it may sound, pillowcases are a collector for natural oils from your hair and face, dead skin cells, bacteria, dust, etc. Change your pillowcase once or twice a week {I do twice a week}. Now choosing the right pillowcase is also important. Most of us have cotton pillowcases which is a no no in beauty land. Swap out your old cotton pillowcase and choose a satin, silk or Egyptian cotton one instead as rough cotton pillowcases can will cause wrinkles.

This is obvious. Wearing an SPF 30 or higher {I use an SPF 60 on my face and body} is a must in the summer and winter months. Don't be fooled in the winter months. The sun reflecting off the snow and the wet roads are just as bad as being on a beach in the summer.
Wear your SPF people!

Skipping on your yearly mole check is your choice but who wants to receive the "bad news" when you do finally go see the doc. Do yourself a favor and go see your dermatologist yearly. Even if you are the type of person that doesn't have very many moles or maybe you don't ever burn in the sun, you can still be at risk to sun damage and even the scary "C" word.
It's better to be safe than sorry.

Smoking breaks down elastin fibers which is why you sometimes see smokers with yellow tinged skin. It also breaks down collagen which definitely leads to wrinkles and pre-mature aging.

Sometimes it's nice to have a little beauty reminder here and there, wouldn't you agree?
