Hey everyone ! 

How has school been going for everyone ? :) For me it has been a little overwhelming but I am beginning to get more use to it ^^ Now I know I have been MIA so here is my little update ! 


I went for dinner with a few friends and I went with a more natural look :) I didn't wanna seem like I was overdoing anything as it was only dinner ^^ This is a super natural look which I think is good for people with glasses and pretty natural for school :) The camera doesn't pick up much but the look has some depth to it :) it doesn't look over done ^^ Tutorial Possibly? 
I also did my own hair WITHOUT a curling iron or straightener, that means its healthy on my hair, like really really healthy!!  Tutorial possibly also ?    


Here is what I wore to the dinner that night so I decided to dress down my makeup because of it :) the buster top is super cute and is still somewhat summery! So I love it and I mean if you have a toned body or still a tan it is definitely the right way to show it off with out being too much depending on how you decide to pair the outfit :) Bathroom picture heehee >.< 

So here was the little haul I had because with back to school I wanted a fresh start and these were great finds :) I number coordinated them so everyone can get an understanding of what everything is ^^ Also for any Canadian viewers these are some current bargains at some stores in Canada so I am just sharing some bargains I found :)

Back to School Tips!

Can you believe it's almost that time of year again :( I miss you summer! Come back! !

But regardless here's a little post on tips as to how to get ready! :) 

1. Deodorant 
Please please bring deodorant! Not saying you smell don't get me wrong. It's just sometimes you want to be presentable and I mean I don't know about you guys but even if I'm not active I am sweating! So I'd rather be prepared ! Now with deodorant you can choose to keep this in your locker or if you have a mini one you can keep it in your backpack ^^ 
I enjoy this one because I sweat a lot and it helps stop that and makes me smell great! Plus it's pretty budget friendly coming in at around 5 dollars :) 

2. Body Spray
I know you already have deodorant! you are probably thinking that will do, but ! Sometimes sweat gets into your clothes and then even with deodorant you won't smell pretty. So grab a body spray ! I am going right away to get myself a mini size body spray from bath and body works. This way you can keep it on you or put it in a little locker :) 
I got a lotion in this scent and I think I will enjoy the miniature scent of this one :) Also SPC card holders in Canada get extra discount! Be sure to grab yourself a SPC card if you are in School or are in University! Its a great deal, for a 9 dollar card you can get discounts off of tons of things! 

3. Toiletries 
Alright Ladies lets be honest here. Mother Nature can be a real pain! She's really good at pulling one of those surprises on you ! So bring pads and tampons! even if it isn't for yourself, you might be able to save a friends life with one of them! 
Oh yes and Advil because you never know what comes with mother nature. I mean symptoms we face every time of the month is also very unpredictable :P

Humid Weather Essentials !

So I went to Hong Kong ( so hoooottt )-____- but I was able to experiment and figure out what works really well and what doesn't :) So this is like a humid weather essentials/ some of things I use in my everyday routine !
I'll start with morning when I get up from my beauty sleep ^.^
I use a tea tree oil cleanser I get mine from
I really do enjoy this cleanser as its nice for a morning wash, as it helps wake you up and since its so natural it feels very fresh on the skin ^^ 

It's not very clear in the picture but this product is 99% organic it doesn't have any parabens or anything in it! I find after changing over to use organic products my face hasn't broken out as bad as before when I had used chemically infused products.

I use to use a toner from the same line it was a tea tree oil cleanser, but currently I have changed over to a different toner I found in Watson's in Hong Kong
here is the original one I usually use

Here is the new one I got in Hong Kong

Make Up Report Card: NYX Crimson Amulet Palette

Instead of just calling them a review I want to call it kinda like a report card cause I grade how I like the products ^^ So I know I showed this palette earlier on but now with trying it out for a little longer I can do a more thorough review :)
These colors are really nice some on the have really big pieces of glitter in it which is a nice effect ^^ its not like super shimmery where it doesn't look good, it looks really nice actually :) Here the swatches on my arm.

Make Up Essentials: Brush Care (plus little DIY)

I know the title can be so deceiving, but today I won't necessarily talk about the brushes you should have and start with, but instead talk about brush care! I know we all have those wonderful makeup brushes we turn to everyday to help us get that flawless finish on our faces, but by the end of the week when you pick you brush again and think about it... There really is a whole load of germs on there :( So  today I'll just talk about some basic brush care!  Firstly make sure you store your brushes so that they aren't touching each other and a spread of germs won't be all up in the air. A really popular method to hold brushes lately is with sand, rice, little pebbles or etc in a glass jar with your brushes facing upward. Personally I love this method! 

This way all your brushes are separated from each other and won't spread germs around 
Secondly, I know its hard to full clean our brushes everyday but I recommend cleaning once a week and at most twice a week (but if you think about it twice a week gets pretty gross too) Some people can use brush cleaners at the store or I can teach you my DIY method ^^ (*clap clap* YAY! first DIY) 

For this DIY brush cleaner it is super easy all you need is some olive oil and baby shampoo

Makeup Goodies: NYX Crimson Amulet Palette and London Look Palette

Just a little haul I had :) I couldn't help but pick these up!
This palette was on sale at my London Drugs in Canada (in the states this would be relevant to a Ulta, Cvs or Walgreens) I guess they were clearing this one out because it was only $5.00 CAN the colors are very pigmented and I find some of the colors really suit my brown eyes :) The brand is called LondonLook.

Review!! !!

I live in Canada so as many know it's hard to get your hands on American Brands like Milani. e.l.f and etc. So one day I came across the website and I had a Visa gift card so I decided to pick up some stuff. In the end I bought from beauty joint because their shipping was a bit more reasonable. And I can't express how impressed I am.

Acne 101: Make up and Exercise

Make up... I know it becomes something that is just so common to us girls. Whether its make up everyday or make up every once in a while to make us feel pretty. There is not a girl out there that doesn't know what it is, but another word that rings a bell is ACNE and BREAKOUTS. Make up can be pretty and all, but it can feel so gross on your skin when you work out and just leave the make up on your face. After my Rugby Practice I remembered I had completely forgotten to take off my make up. No make up was slipping or anything, but I always have to keep in mind that even when I don't sweat. If i wear make up while I exercise it definetly clogs the pores and can cause BREAKOUTS. Many girls feel insecure and so they decide to go to the work out room/exercise with make up, but what they don't realize is that this can be the central cause of all the break outs upon their faces!! After today I kept reminding myself that it is almost essential to remove make up before working out !! I'm not talking about like a thorough removal with a make up removal cloth. If you don't have all those great things before you then just use a baby wipe or if you don't even have that then just rinse off your face :) mainly just remember if you are like me and have acne prone skin remember don't let your pores get clogged!!! until next time
