NEW BITS & BOBS

Hi friends!!

Over the past little while, a few new bits have landed on my doorstep, as well some new products I’ve picked up! I thought I’d put together a little first impressions now that I’ve been using these products for the past month or so.

October was my month experimenting with the smoky eye! To be honest, I wasn’t really sure how much I was going to like it – I’ve always leaned towards more natural, neutral tones when I do my eye makeup. However, two eyeshadow palettes really worked me into the smoky look…

Effortless French Beauty ft. Guerlain

SIMPLY ICONIC

When I say Iconic French Beauty House, what do you think of? For me, Guerlain springs to mind. I remember seeing the little pot of Guerlain Météorites sitting on top of the washroom counter when I was little, that where my mom had placed just out of my reach. When she wasn’t around, I’d climb up on the counter and use the puff she kept inside the tin to pat my face. I learned to love the sweet scent of violets that Guerlain uses to fragrance their products.

So I’m sure you understand my excitement when Guerlain invited me to their fall beauty masterclass! Hosted by Guerlain International Beauty Artist, Maxime Poulin, we learned about the autumn trends and new Guerlain launches. I’m partnering with illustrator (and bff) Emily Beaton to feature some of her illustrations.

A Late Summer Sephora Haul

Hello lovelies!

I’m laughing as I write this post because as of right now, it’s early August, and I know this post won’t go up til the end of the early to mid September. Why, you ask? Because the end of August is my birthday, and I always hold off ordering from Sephora in July because I want the Sephora birthday gift.

That means I spend the whole of July restlessly surfing the Sephora site and app and adding things to my basket. Come August 1st, I slam dat checkout button! It also helped that eBates was at 8% cash back. eBates as a affiliate program where you can get cash back on your purchases from different retailers – I always use it when shopping from Sephora because you get money back!

Check it out here.

So here is a haul in two parts – enjoy.
