So during this time of year, my skin isn’t the easiest to manage. It misses the vitamin D from the sun!
So I like to focus on skin care a lot more than usual.
One thing I absolutely love to do is multi-mask! I have combo skin so this is perfect for me, since different areas of my skin need different attention.
I am OBSESSED with Kiehls! They are a great skin care brand that has never let me down. I use so many of their products!
Here I have on two of their masks! (I also have one under my eyes, this is a clear gel hydrating mask, I’m still testing it out so I’ll let you guys know if I end up liking it!)
The grey toned one that you guys see is this guy:
It is so great for areas that tend to get clogged pores and break out more than others! It really gets deep in there, so if you notice a few break outs when you first start using it, I swear it happened to me too! It’s called the Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque. It is :
So today I wanted to talk about my typical “date night” makeup look. Sometimes I do like do go a little bolder, but I definitely gear towards this look much more.
What I really like to focus on is my skin. I like to make sure my skin looks as flawless as possible and focus on the blush, bronzer, highlight and contour. I think that spending the most time on the skin will make you look the most put together!
The picture came out a little blurrier then I hoped, but you can see that my eyes are very simple, nothing dramatic at all. What I did was use a sparkly nude colour all over the lid, and then a cool grey on the outer V, and that’s basically it.
I added a boat-load of mascara and the eyes were done!
I love wearing this look because it looks so effortless and really does not take much time! Throw a nude lip on and you’re good to go.
I hope this inspires your next “natural” make-up look!
Lots of love,
Is one of your New Years resolutions to get into shape? Me too!
I’ve started to get back into the habit of going to the gym (we’ll see how long this lasts) and I’ve noticed myself running out of gym clothes throughout the week.
When I went to shop around, I resorted to the typical gym wear – Nike , Under armour, Adidas, etc. And MAN are they pricey! So, here I’ve put together a cute gym outfit that is nowhere near as expensive!
First is this racer-back tank top from Joe Fresh! It’s only $16 (Canadian) and from experience, I know they fit really well! I’ve chosen the white one here, but it also comes in black, grey and magenta. Check out their website, they even have long sleeves and zip ups if that’s more your style!
To pair with this, I chose these tights from Old Navy. I typically gear towards black or grey for my bottoms, and I like that these ones have a cool but still simple design to jazz up the look. I also really enjoy that it is mid-rise, so I feel like it is “holding it all together” while I’m working out!
And last but certainly not least, a sports bra! This one is also from Old Navy. It is one of many that I saw and really liked! Shopping online at Old Navy you will almost always find a deal, the shipping just takes a little longer than other retailers. I’m into this one because it comes down and hugs the waist, which is something essential for me in a sports bra.
I hope this helps you get motivated and inspires you to get back on a healthy path! (Even though all I want to do is eat chocolate all day).
Lots of love,
All season I have been on the hunt for the perfect over-sized lazy-day sweater and haven’t found exactly what I’ve been looking for… until now!
When it comes to sweaters, I typically don’t like to spend a whole lot. I love my sweater to be cozy and over sized, so I can just pop on a pair of tights and do any errands on my to-do list.
The Forever21 mens section has finally done it for me! Yes, I said the MENS section.
I walked in there looking for a pair of black jeans, and came out with mens sweaters. They are cute and affordable, and made bigger, therefore giving me that “oversized” look I like on hoodies.
Check them out! http://www.forever21.com/CA/Product/Category.aspx?br=21men&category=mens-main&lang=en-US
I’m sure you’ll find your perfect lazy-day sweater!
Lots of love,
