BITE Beauty Lip Lab Review! | National Lipstick Day 2019

Bite Beauty Lip Lab custom Lipstick Making

Happy National Lipstick Day!

Last week my friend Alanna and I went to BITE Beauty's Toronto Lip Lab on Queen St. West to try out their Bespoke Lip Service. This was honestly one of the most fabulous experiences of my life, given that we were pampered with treats and wine while being given complete creative liberty to create two completely custom lipsticks of our choosing. Read on to see (and watch) our experience!

AVON Anew Vitamin C Collection | Review

AVON Anew Vitamin C Collection

When I think of Vitamin C in skincare, brands like Ole Henriksen and BeautyRx come to mind. But they aren't the only players in this game! AVON is keeping up with the trends as they just released a range of products aimed at middle-age skin to help brighten your glow this summer. This is not their first time creating a product with Vitamin C, they have a Vitamin C Brightening Serum ($42) already.

Review: AVON 2-in-1 Lip Tattoo Lip Line & Fill Duo

Review AVON 2-in-1 Lip Tattoo Lip Line & Fill Duo

One of my favorite parts of being a blogger is the fact that I get to try samples of products from brands that I might not order from on my own. That "discovery" factor (with no financial implications!) still makes me SO excited, even 7 years in. My friends at AVON never cease to amaze me with their very frequent and innovative launches, and today I'm focusing on lips.

AVON Flourish Honey Blossom Review

AVON Flourish Honey Blossom Review

Perfume is a daily staple for me, but there's a fine line between "just enough" and I NEED TO SHOWER fragrance. I have a sensitive olfactory system which is partial to vanilla, fruit and delicate white flowers. Please welcome, Avon Flourish Honey Blossom Eau de Parfum. It is perfection.

Hiking Tips for Amateurs | Rocky Mountain Trails

Spirit Island Jasper
Maligne Lake, Jasper

It makes me laugh when people say that walking around a city is "exercise". Yes, it's great to use your legs if you can. It's wonderful to keep your joints moving and it's a very eco-friendly way to go from point A to point B. But it definitely does not challenge your body, mind or muscles. You'll quickly realize this if you go hiking, especially if the trail has rugged terrain, intense elevation and if the weather is warm or cold. Hiking in the Rocky Mountains can either be easy, or very challenging! Many options are available. Here are some tips for anyone visiting a National Park to discover new trails by foot.

The Crazy *Beauty* Things I Buy On Amazon, AliExpress and eBay

AliExpress Beauty

I've been shopping online for beauty products ever since I got my first credit card in 2012. It started with Skin79 Hot Pink BB Cream, and snowballed from there. Some of my favourite makeup brushes are from random sellers on eBay, and more recently I've made purchases on Amazon and AliExpress for items that I use in my daily beauty routine. Watch my video below for some (mostly) K-Beauty inspiration!

Wedding Day Essentials | Products You Need (As Maid of Honour) For Prep, Day Of, And Emergencies

Wedding Day Essentials

Weddings are so much fun, especially if you're from a family that likes to "go big or go home". Yes, it's an expensive undertaking to throw a party for 200 guests, but it's a party they'll never forget!

For brides, your wedding is a true moment to shine, surrounded by all of the people and things that make you the happiest. This also means that you've only got the one day to live out your wildest party fantasies, so it's important to prepare beforehand to ensure that things go smoothly. As a proud MOH for my sister Lauren and bridesmaid in 4 weddings total, I have a *few* items that you need for a successful wedding (or prom/gala/formal event of your choosing!)
