To Give Is Beautiful – Shoppers Drug Mart – beautyBOUTIQUE [EVENTS]

It’s that time of the year when to give is beautiful. This weekend I had the pleasure of attending a holiday event at Vaughan Mills shopping center as a Fragrance expert. I took people who attended (open to public) through a fragrance experience that peaked all of their senses! All fragrances I spoke about are available at Shoppers Drug Mart’s beauty boutiques.  In case you missed this event, don’t worry! The next one is happening at the Eaton Center, Dec 2nd and 3rd from mall opening to close hours. To Give Is Beautiful – Shoppers Drug Mart – beautyBOUTIQUE So here’s what went down: You’re greeted by some beautiful ladies, who go through a summary of the experience you’ll have. Then directed to the fragrance station. Here I asked people what fragrances they were most drawn too. Based on their answer that gave me an idea of which ones…

October Beauty and Skincare Favourites [BEAUTY]

It has been a busy summer! With all of the great beauty events I’ve gone to this summer, I have lots of October favourites that I’d love to share with you. If you’re out on the market looking for something new, take a look here to see which items you might want to add to your beauty routine. Almost all of the items below can be found at your local Shoppers Drug Mart. 😉 October Beauty Favourites STILA I’ve been using Stila cosmetics for a few years now and I haven’t come across a Stila product that I didn’t like. I’ve been obsessing over these Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks, Stay All Day Foundation & Concealer and the Stila Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner. The liquid lipstick is true to colour and speaking of colour comes in so many different shades. It’s staying power after eating/drinking blows my mind. I never…

Quick Spa Treatment at Home with Life Brand Skincare [BEAUTY]

Have you ever tried Life Brand products? You can find them at Shoppers Drug Mart in the beauty section of the store. Some of you may already know, but I first job at 16, was at Shoppers Drug Mart in cosmetics. I applied for a cashier role and my luck they were looking for someone in cosmetics and were ready to train me. Over the years I attended seminars, classes, did tests and learnt so much about the cosmetics industry. I am forever grateful to this day for that first job opportunity that got me where I am today. Thank you Frances. Quick Spa Treatment at Home with Life Brand Skincare I’ve seen Life Brand grow for over a decade in terms of the products they’ve come out with and the quality of it has always been amazing. It just gets better and better over the years. When you enter…

Estee Lauder Skincare Favourites [Beauty]

Estée Lauder is an old favourite line of mine. There are a handful of items I’ve used in this line that I always keep going back too. Recently, I’ve been obsessed with these 3 estee lauder skincare favourites: Let’s shine the spotlight on these three skincare products that have been tried, tested and true! Being a beauty blogger, I get to try a lot of make up and skincare products. For an honest review of a product, I feel it’s fair to try the product for months, when you actually start to see results or in some cases none. I’ve got one empty, one almost and third still got a few weeks worth to go. Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Intensive Recovery Ampoules This oil comes in a glass jar with individual capsules. Having the oil in individual capsules take’s the guessing out of the actual amount you need. One capsule…

NEW! BITE Beauty Lip Pencil #TheLipPencil [REVIEW]

I’ve been on the hunt for a really good lip pencil. I’ve tried so many brands and I couldn’t say I had a favourite one until now! Can you imagine, 10+ years of being a beauty advisor, VIB member at Sephora and not one lip pencil to be my go to. So cray! Of course I was a bit skeptical before I tried BITE beauty’s new lip pencil. I thought, okay, here we go. Just another lip pencil. I was so very wrong. This lip pencil ($20, shop here) is my new found make-up love. I’m obsessed! It’s everything I ever wanted in a lip pencil. Soft, creamy, super pigmented and easy to sharpen. In a nut shell, if you haven’t heard of BITE Beauty before, it’s a Canadian brand with their head office being in Toronto. Their lip products are highly pigmented made with hydrating formulas and are infused…

5 Ways to Relax [Happy Valentine’s Day!]

Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m going to steer away from the Valentines Day ootd’s, gift ideas etc posts and bring to you these quick ways to relax. Because let’s remember, valentines day isn’t just about loving others or others loving you, but also about loving yourself. Taking care of you and making yourself happy. It’s so easy to say; relax, but not so easy to actually get into that mood.

Well, honestly, take that damn break! We get so riled up in our crazy busy lives that we often forget to take time for ourselves. So here’s my fool proof 5 quick ways to relax, and please.. I want you to try at least one and tell me how…

L’Oréal Revitalift Bright Reveal VoxBox [Review]

Finally I got around to opening this voxbox and trying the products that I got for testing purposes. Below is my review of each product that I used for a little over one week now. Let me know below in the comments if you’ve tried any of these products and what you think! It was great hearing from you guys on Instagram. XO L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Brightening Daily Scrub Cleanser I’ve used this for a week now and one of the things that I love about this scrub is that the beads are not abrasive. They’re actually gentle compared to other leading brands. The scent is not overpowering and it appears to be working. I did start to break out after the first day of using it, but that could just be the resurfacing of dirt etc for the deep cleansing to work. When to use: Nightly What does it…
