A little cocoa

It could be me but the transition from summer to fall can be a bit of a weird time. Factoring in that generally I’m no longer someone who stands out in the sun for long periods of time—plus having a very strange and late start to summer this year in my city hasn’t left a trace of a deep tan, so I’ve relied a lot on self-tanners to kick up my summer glow.

Some Givenchy

As someone such as myself who wasn’t born with luscious long voluminous eyelashes, finding those holy grail mascaras are a big beauty challenge. I believe no mascara—low-end or high-end—has really passed the ultimate test until they can help out and create something magically for naturally sparse lashes. Since finding my favourite mascaras that work well on my me, I’ve always been a fan of drugstore mascaras, but haven’t really given too many chances with the more expensive brands. Read more »

Picture perfect on holiday


Many thoughts can run though your head when it comes to seeing all the fashion travel photos on your Instagram feed, especially since they all seem so or are well produced to the point where some hire for hair, makeup, styling, and a talented photographer to help make an image come to life. It’s obvious that the simpler times have changed, but that shouldn’t stop you from making the best of your photos whether you follow into the trend or not. All it takes is a little bit of planning when it comes to packing your bags, and some due care and consideration for your skin and hair while you’re on holidays. Read more »

TōN of nude

Summer isn’t quite over just yet, and although I’m not looking forward to the end of it, my subconscious mind has already been unintentionally planning it out. I was born in the summer, and even when I’m not in my element, I’m such a summer baby deep down. I do have to admit though that I love everything about fall even — when the downside is that it’s so damn short in Toronto and starts to get cold very quickly. As we slowly start to move into fall, this is also usually when I love to play around with makeup again. Read more »

First Glossier

This may not be anything new for my neighbours down south but Glossier finally arrived in Canada! As someone who has been eyeballing and admiring their products from afar for quite awhile sometime, I couldn’t wait to get on their website to make an order the minute they debuted online in my country. Because I’ve heard some of them compared very well to the Ordinary I didn’t bother too much with their skincare line since, and opted for their makeup instead. Since making this order I made a second order already — I’d say this pretty much confirms how much I love Glossier already. Read more »

Summer go to

Since my city had a late bloom and things only started to really heat up recently, it surprises and saddens me to realize that summer is already halfway through. In this period of time, and aside from enjoying this beautiful yet sometimes hot summer weather, I’ve found myself really experimenting with my style. I’ve taken some steps back and have been drawn to retro and vintage inspired pieces, which really brings me back to the times when I use to go second-hand clothing shopping almost every weekend to try and be the first to find those unique and fun items to add into my mixed wardrobe of old and new.

Color Stay

A few weeks back I was invited to the Revlon #ColorStayAllDay Event in my city of Toronto, and to be honest I haven’t really been too familiar with Revlon products before, so I decided it was the perfect time to learn more about the brand and what they have to offer. Before I get into the products I received from the event, I have to mention that Gigi Gorgeous was the host (I entered the elevator at the same time as her and her entourage and I freaked out a bit and told her I loved watching her videos — btw, she’s extremely sweet!) for the wonderful evening filled with beauty, new friends, and fun drink names such as “No Way Rosé” — ha!
