5 PIXI Beauty Products You Should Buy Right Now

Have you tried PIXI beauty products before? I’m going, to be honest, and say this year was the first time I ever tried PIXI. I have a huge haul to share with you! There was an extra PIXI launch that I couldn’t share with you at the time I recorded the video, so instead, I shared some pictures of the products and my favourite one. But first the PIXI Beauty haul: ****NEW PIXI BEAUTY**** There are so many amazing products under this PIXI brand. But don’t worry, I’ve narrowed it down to the ones I’ve tested and find true.

8 Ways to Save Your Skin With Arden Eight Hour® Cream Skincare

8 Ways to Save Your Skin With Arden Eight Hour® Cream Skincare I’ve been using Elizabeth Arden’s 8 hour cream for over a decade now. It’s my go-to skincare product for when I have any kinds of cuts, needing accelerated healing, skin irritations, and super dry lips. I’ve been so excited that Elizabeth Arden has extended their 8 hour family over the years! In a Nutshell: 1. FACE The Eight hour® cream has been used to protect and soothe the skin since the 1930s.

Snowball fight in Style with the Warmest Sweater Ever!

I had no Instagram post for Christmas Day this year and actually no IG stories. Nor was I on Twitter, or pinning stuff on Pinterest. I was enjoying the day with our family and celebrating our wedding anniversary. Among other stuff we do on our anniversary, one of them is to just be silly and spontaneous. Okay, that’s something we do on almost every holiday break. But you get it. We put on some warm clothes and headed out to our backyard patio to have a snowball fight with the fresh snowfall we had just gotten in Mississauga. Snowball fight in Style with the Warmest Sweater Ever! Of course, my sister from MAC Decor was prepared with the camera and got some great shots! She does wedding and events decor if anyone is looking. Check her out on Instagram: MAC Decor – Toronto. Do you remember an epic snowball fight? I…

Stila Holiday Gift Sets For You or Perfect as Holiday Gifts

I’m a stila girl! Because I’m so obsessed with Stila Cosmetics I just had to dive deeper to show you close-ups of these beautiful holiday sets. And if they’re not already gone, I’d suggest you go NOW to get your hands on them. Stila Holiday Gift Sets Not only do these sets make great gift ideas, but they’re also a great way to try so many different colours without purchasing so many full sizes. I always like stocking up during the holidays on these minis because I get to try so many for pretty much the price of one. No commitment. Lots of options. Price is right. You can also break the sets up and give a mini individually as a stocking stuffer or even place it in a customized gift. On my lids: Kitten Karma  – On my lips: Besos
