Laser Hair Removal for Light Hair? | WIN Free Laser at The Ten Spot Queen St. West, Toronto

The Ten Spot Queen West

Back in the fall, my colleagues convinced me that I needed to try laser hair removal at The Ten Spot's 749 Queen St W location. I feel like us women and men with thin, light hair might not be aware of The Ten Spot's laser expertise, so I'm happy to share my experience with their services thus far.

Review: Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter & Eyes to Mesmerise

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter

One of my goals for 2019 is to have fun with makeup. It may seem silly, but experimenting with new products, formulas, and colours is one of the activities that sparked my interest in blogging way back in 2010. 

Charlotte Tilbury is a brand that I've lusted over for years, they're way up at the top with the likes of Guerlain, Chanel, Tom Ford, Dior and Chantecaille. When spending a pretty penny on products from these prestige brands, you want to make an informed decision. Here's my take on the Hollywood Flawless Filter and Eyes to Mesmerise cream eyeshadow, two of the brand's standout products.

NEW My Clarins Collection | Nutrient-Packed, Vegan-Friendly Skincare

My Clarins Review

If there was only one brand that I could live with for the rest of my life (omg how sad would that be?) I would choose Clarins. Hands down! Between their kick-a*s sunless tanners, sunscreen, moisturizer, the BEST concealer, iconic lipstickserum, and everything in between (I highlighted them in 2015 as my favourite brand!) I could do my entire skincare routine and makeup using their products exclusively. Not only that, I would love each and every step of the way.

I have to admit that Clarins skincare wasn't the first to really pull me in, mainly due to the packaging and promises that always geared to an older age group. I'm in my mid-20s and have been taking very good care of my skin for the last 10 years. The first product I bought from Clarins was their iconic Beauty Flash Balm, which can be used as a makeup primer or super-hydrating mask. I feel like I've come full circle now with their new range of vegan-friendly products, targeting young skin that stays up late, exercises often, and cares about ingredients more than anything else. Let's see what it's all about.

Celine Designer Sunglasses Dupe |

Fact: Giant sunglasses can hide a multitude of sins.

I've been coveting a pair of Celine-esque sunnies for many years, especially after following Amy at Fashion Jackson religiously on Instagram for her perfect OOTDs. My problem is that I wear prescription lenses most of the time, unless I'm travelling or going to a fancy event. I also don't want to start buying a ton of crap glasses that fall apart, so came to the rescue again - yippie!

Revlon Mythic Lights | Spring 2019 Review & Full Face Look

Revlon Spring 2019 Review

I love Revlon.
I find it to be cute how each time I review a new collection from the brand, I instinctively start it off with a love statement :P proof, here!

Today I wanted to share a "Mythic Lights" makeup look with you, which I  created using some new and noteworthy products for spring that are totally on-trend, and so worth the price.

how to get rid of dandruff drugstore products

Happy Tuesday, y'all!

I want to start a little series talking about the less-glamorous side of beauty and health, with a new topic on Tuesdays. This week: Cystic pimples and dandruff. Joy! Both of the products I'm highlighting are from ChickAdvisor, and they didn't even ask me to write this on my site - I simply love them enough to tell you.

AVEENO Positively Radiant MAXGLOW

I've loved Aveeno products for a long time, and always go back to them for reliable body and face lotions at the drugstore. I featured their classic Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer here in my "Daily Moisturizers for Every Skin Type", and a great, affordable mineral sunscreen from them here. I recently received an awesome selection of their new MAXGLOW collection from ChickAdvisor to review, and have been enjoying each of the new and innovative formulas that can be used on all skin types.
