Vegan + Gluten-Free Taste Test with my Sister!

Vegan Gluten Free Taste Test iHerb

After years of trying to convince my sister to start her own YouTube channel, she finally made the jump a couple of months ago! I'm definitely biased, but I have no doubt that you will enjoy her content - she is beautiful inside and out, smart, confident, resourceful and a natural in front of the camera. Olivia has always been my biggest supporter when it comes to my online ventures, and now that she has finally pulled the trigger, I am all but overjoyed to be able to share her amazing lifestyle content with you all. She provides amazing tips and advice and you can expect to see a variety of videos covering topics such as self-improvement and personal growth, travel, beauty, fashion and much more. You can get to know her a bit better here. I wanted to collaborate with her, and figured having her as a guest on my channel for a vegan taste test would be a fun way to go about it! We're both snack addicts, and she is always open to trying new foods, so as soon as I suggested the idea, she was all in. Get cozy, because it's a long one, and you'll also want to stick around until the end of the video as I couldn't resist putting some bloopers together!

EPIC EMPTIES | Fall 2017 Edition

Epic Empties Fall 2017 Edition

It's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's (almost) a new year, and I'm here rummaging through my junk... haha. I mean, what better way to close off the year than by talking about all the stuff I've used up? As they say, one person's trash is another person's treasure... well in this case, I wouldn't go that far, but I still hope you find this mildly entertaining. You've been warned, it's a long one - so grab some tea (or popcorn if you're hungry) and enjoy watching the latest episode of Epic Empties!

Well you've come to the right place - I have partnered with Yves Rocher this Holiday season to bring you a Gift Guide for Her!

It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream | Review

It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream Light

It Cosmetics is one of those brands that I've been familiar with for many years from following other beauty blogs, and one that I have been lusting over. Their Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream* has been raved about over and over again, and with It Cosmetics making its way to the Great White North (aka Canada) at Sephora back in August, I was super stoked to see if this product actually lives up to its outstanding reviews. After testing it out for a few months, I am ready to share my insight!

Au Naturale Cosmetics Organic Cream Makeup | First Impressions + Look

Au Naturale Cosmetics Organic Cream Makeup

With my shift in using more natural beauty products in recent years, I have stumbled across many amazing companies which rival industry giants, with the added benefit of being safer to use and causing less harm to the planet as well as the animals. One such brand I have recently recently been testing out is Au Naturale Cosmetics - I first came across them on social media around the time I went plant-based over three years ago, so I was super pumped to have the opportunity to try their products! They are PETA-certified vegan and cruelty-free, with all their products also being void of gluten, parabens, fillers, dyes and toxins. And, in honour of World Vegan Day (which is today!) - they are offering 15% off sitewide with code vegan15*! If you have been looking for alternatives to your conventional beauty products, look no further!

Double Happiness Botanical Skincare | Review

Double Happiness Skincare Review

As a beauty enthusiast, I am always on the lookout for effective products that won't compromise my sensitive and blemish prone skin. While my skin is far from perfect, I notice how much 'happier' it is when I use high quality, plant-based products. Cue Double Happiness Skincare, a line created by two female entrepreneurs from Toronto, Sonja and Young. While their professional roots are in marketing, they also developed a passion for essential oils and elixir making, and after years of research and experimentation, have launched their line of detoxifying skincare. Each product has been thoughtfully blended to reveal nature's healing properties without disturbing the skin's pH balance, with the use of sustainably harvested extracts. The line is vegan, cruelty-free, non-GMO and free of toxins such as parabens, sulfates and synthetic fragrances.

Make Up For Ever Artist Liquid Matte Lipsticks | Review, Try On + Swatches

MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Liquid Matte Lipstick 201 205 207 301 403 501 503 505

Confession: I'm a liquid lipstick convert. I didn't really get the craze when this lip product hybrid started taking over the makeup world, but after trying a few brands out, I have been enlightened by their amazingness. One brand that has been killing the liquid lipstick game is Make Up For Ever. Earlier this year, they came out with a small selection of Artist Liquid Matte Lipsticks, and I tested out a handful of nude shades: 103 Warm Beige, 105 Rosewood and 107 Neutral Beige. They recently expanded the line and have added a bunch of colours, many of which I have to share with you today. While my first sampling was of more neutral shades, this time around I have bolder and more vibrant hues to show you.

Chatty Get Ready With Me | Fall Makeup: Brown Eyes + Berry Lips

Chatty Get Ready With Me Fall Makeup Brown Eyes Berry Lips

I haven't posted a Chit Chat Get Ready With Me in a few months, so I figured it was about time I film one! I reached for some trusty old favourites as well as some new-to-me products that I have quickly grown to love. You can never go wrong with brown on the eyes; it is a shade that is flattering on all skin tones and all eye colours, and this is my take on an everyday wearable eye look with a statement berry lip for fall.
