Basic Cosplay Staff Tutorial (ft. Sailor Pluto’s Time Key)
If you’ve been following me on Snapchat, Twitter, and Instagram, you’ll have seen me posting about my Sailor Pluto cosplay! Sailor Pluto is my thirdÂ (and probably last)Â Sailor Scout cosplay, following Sailor Jupiter and Mars. I wanted to go out with a bang, featuring a large prop!
Today, I’ll be teaching you how to make a cosplay staff. The materials are all pretty basic and accessible, and it doesn’t cost a whole lot of money either! Keep reading to see how it’s done…
#TakeYourChance with Chanel
Chanel is one of my all time favourite beauty and fragrance brands – it just exudes an aura of luxury and charm. ChanelÂ No5 Eau Premiere is probably my signature scent! It’s light and seductive, with notes of jasmine flowers and tonka beans. The fragrance itself is both timeless and recognizable, and I’ve always received compliments when wearing it. Chanel has a number of iconic perfumes, and I’m here to share one of their most popular fragrances.
Last week, I was lucky enough to attend the Chanel #TakeYourChance event held at the Hudson’s Bay in Yorkdale Mall in celebration of the Chanel Chance fragrance. The line includes 4 different scents : Chance Original, Chance Eau Fraiche, Chance Eau Tendre and Chance Eau Vive. Each bottle was a different colour – yellow, green, pink, and beige.
It’s your chance . . . TAKE IT! A decidedly young scent for those who dare to dream. A light, subtly sensual fragrance, filled with vitality and energy, evolves from one moment to the next, each wholly unique.
Adore Me carries a wide selection of bras, lingerie, sleepwear, and swimwear. There are always new seasonal designs being added to the website which makes it harder and harder to stop myself from going on a treat yo’ self shopping spree! Regular department sizes don’t offer many cute options past 34D, and LaSenza doesn’t seem to offer past 34DD in store. Victoria’s Secret is a bit better, but the cost of a pretty bra and panty set can sometimes cost way more than intended!
Adore Me is a monthly subscription service in which you can order a new pair of cute undies/ swimwear/sleepwear for a discounted VIP price, which is often half the regular price. For those who prefer to pay as they go for one-off orders, Adore Me offers the option to buy the sets at their regular price. Â You can read my previous reviews of my ordering experience here and here! I have four sets to share with you today!
Aaaaaaand luckily for you, Adore Me is having a summer snapchat giveaway! Keep reading to find out more…
A few little goodies…
…appeared at my doorstep the other day.
I’ve been transitioning my makeup to reflect the warmer weather – glowy skin, subtle bronze, and colourful lips are making their way into my makeup bag. I’ve also been switching up my fragrances (think light, floral, and airy – hello chloe!) I thought I would showcase these items because they totally capture spring/summer makeup trends!
Let’s take a look at the spring/summer releases for Estee Lauder’s Bronze Goddess collection, as well as a new Aerin fragrance!
Generation Beauty Toronto 2016
Generation Beauty (or rather, GenBeauty), was held on May 14-15 at the Toronto Metro Convention Centre. You may recognize the venue, as it is the same hall that Fan Expo Canada is held!
GenBeauty was founded by Youtube Star and ipsy creator Michelle Phan. It’s not so much a convention (like I originally though – more on that later), but a gathering of brands, beauty content creators, and their audiences. This was their first time holding a GenBeauty event in Toronto, let alone Canada. There have been other events held in New York and Los Angeles, and it was nice to see the online beauty community expand into Canada.
