Can you believe it’s Christmas next week? The year has flown by and I’ve been wearing a rotation of maybe 2-3 sweatshirts a month. Even if the holidays are looking a little bit different this year, I still get to enjoy the products’ packaging designs at this time of the year! Mario Badescu is now available at Sephora Canada – which was news to me as I used to recall only seeing them at Urban Outfitters! I received two sets from them that contains some of their most iconic products. Best of all – they’re reasonably priced and even better – they’re on sale at Sephora right now! [Read more…]
If you are looking for fun makeup gift sets, Benefit Cosmetics is a no brainer when it comes to packaging their classic beauty products! I was sent two of their holiday products, the Life Is A Pretty Party set and Magnificent Brow Show. I can’t have a party at home, but at least I can have my own self-hosted makeup party with me and my products, right?
Summer was over in a blink of an eye and for me, the past few months were probably peak-stressful in terms of life and career. Trying to find some work life balance is much harder than it was during this time. I’ve been stuffing myself with local getaways, spa treatments, some (minor) shopping indulgence, and treating my skin better! I have so much more time to play with my old products.
So when the latest Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair arrived at my door, I embraced the beautiful box it came in and excited for something new to try! I also snapped a picture and send it to my mom, as she is a number 1 fan of this product. [Read more…]
Anyone been massively online shopping since March and the rate of staying at home accelerated by 500%? I definitely got carried away with buying online anything for the last little while, and the way we have been doing things are shifting. I’ve been working from home since March, so I am going a bit home-loopey. I miss my fresh coffee during walks, but I’m grateful that I can be at home and can work remotely. The one thing I do miss most is definitely travelling. I miss new places, new food, and new culture. And spas, I had two spa dates lined up and then cancelled. In comes Beauty Sense, a Montreal based spa that offers spa quality products online. AND they’re Canadian! Treating myself with spa products is what I will be doing and the only thing that is preventing me from looking like a tired slug on the couch. [Read more…]
When I moved a few months ago, I was excited to declutter the mess I brought to my new home. Unfortunately places closed shortly after due to the global health crisis, so I have bags and bags of makeup lying around. Makeup is a tripping hazard around my bed. I also thought maybe I will be drinking more water at home now. Nope, I’ve been very good at staying dehydrated. But now I have time to try all the lip products I have at home and talk about them on here. Lano, an Australian beauty brand, has been on my radar for a long time due to its marketing for having some of the best lip balms – Lanolips. As a professional lip peeler (gross, I know) due to perpetual dry lips, I was ecstatic to try some of their highly rated products.
