Hello lovelies! Hope your Christmas and New Year’s celebrations were fun! I’m starting to get back into the swing of regular blog posts. How did you spend your New Year’s Eve? I’ve always been the type of person who wants to go out on New Year’s, wear a fancy dress, and party all night! However, I’ve haven’tÂ actually been able to cross that off my bucklet list. Maybe next year. This New Year’s Eve, we took it easy.
Matt and I had a pair of free tickets to the Ontario Science Centre which expired on the 31st. We had no other plans, so we thought why not? I’ve never actually been to the Science Centre, so we figured it would make for a nice little date. Unfortunately it’s a little ways outside of downtown Toronto, just off the Don Mills Parkway.
Hello everyone! Now I’m sure you all know by now that I’m an absolute lipstick fiend – I absolutely love my lip products! I’ve been a fan of Bite Beauty products for ages now, ever since I got my hands on two gorgeous orange toned Amuse BoucheÂ lipsticks in the shades Gingersnap and Sweet Cream (which I reviewed here).Â So you can imagine that it was a dream come true when the little Bite Beauty fairy dropped off some goodies in my mailbox, including a selection of the Amuse Bouche line, Matte Creme lip crayons, and the 2016 Mauvember shade!

The Solution Sheet Mask by The Face Shop
As you all know, The Face Shop is one of my absolute favourite skincare brands, it really transformed my skin from dry to normal, and got rid of my annoying dry patches! I previously hauled quite a few face masksÂ and skincare products, and have since burned through almost all of them. Today, I’ll be sharing The Face Shop – The Solution Sheet Mask. I only recently noticed these on the shelve so I think these are a new addition to their current sheet mask range! Each mask focuses on a certain vitamin or chemical that performs well with the skin.

Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick
Matte and liquid lipstick formulas seem to be all the rage these past months, with every brand releasing their own collections and spin on the product. The makeup gods decided to smile upon me and bless me with the full collection ofÂ Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick.Â The full collection, including their collaboration shade with Youtube Megastar (and Canadian :D), Lilly Singh! Keep reading to see an in depth review, my thoughts on the shades, and some swatches!
Legs For Days, Darling. Introducing theÂ Silk’n Flash&Go!
My legs are one of my favourite features – I’m quite tall and have very long legs, and I love showing them off! Especially during the summer time – shorts, skirts, dresses… love love love! What’s on the menu? Legs!Â What I hate though, is shaving. I’m not the biggest fan of body hair, and I’ve tried most types of hair removal. Waxes, razors, shaving creams… you name it, I’ve probably tried it. The trouble with these types of hair removal is that you’ll be smooth for a few weeks, but the hair will eventually grow back. Worst of all is that it gets super messy! I’ve been curious about laser hair removal for a while now – the convenience of being smooth without painful cuts or ingrown hair bumps? Sign me up! But it can be quite expensive – I’ve seen laser treatments priced from $1000 and up, depending on the amount of hair and where on the body you’d like to zap!Â When Silk’n reached out to me about their new Flash&Go Express Compact Hair Removal Device, I was immediately intrigued! I have always wanted to try out light-based hair removal (which I will explain a bit more later on!) I tested out the device for two weeks (two treatments), and today I’ll be showing you a mini demo and review
