It’s cold, it’s rainy, and I work at least 40 hours a week. There’s not much to look forward to most of my time. Except, when an email about the Vancouver Beanstock Coffee Festival reached my inbox!

How long has it been since my last lipstick post?! I’ve tried many different brands of lipsticks before, and I can’t believe I haven’t used Laura Mercier lip products before!

I’ve been using these products for a few months now and even brought one of them with me on my Europe trip.
