Pixi Beauty: A First Look | Makeup + Skin Care Review

Pixi Beauty Makeup Skincare

While I am all for online shopping, for me, nothing beats being able to see cosmetics in person. There are a quite a few brands that I've been coveting that have yet to make their way to retail stores north of the US border, and one of them I can now cross off my lust list is Pixi Beauty as they just entered the Canadian market earlier this year! You can just imagine my delight when I found out that the brand is now available at Shopper's Drug Mart/Pharmaprix. Pixi Beauty was launched in 1999 by renown Swedish-born makeup artist Petra Strand. Initially only available in Europe, Pixi made its ways across the pond to the US a couple of years ago where it can be found at Target online and in stores nationwide. Now the Pharmaprix near me tends to not have the greatest selection of products since it is on the smaller side, and making my way to the makeup aisle there was no Pixi Beauty in sight. Disappointed, I turned the corner and to my surprise spotted a stand-alone display next to the nail polish section - score!

SIBU Sea Berry Therapy | Rescue For Problematic Skin

SIBU Sea Berry Therapy Rescue For Problematic Skin

When I first started looking into more natural products, I was introduced to SIBU and have had the opportunity to try a few more of their products over the years. One of the many reasons I am a fan of this line is that their products are specifically created for those of us with imperfect skin - and I definitely fall into this category as I deal with acne and hyperpigmentation on a regular basis. Sea Buckthorn Berry is the star ingredient, a fruit high in omega 3, 6, 7 and 9s and containing over 190 bioactive compounds - now that's powerful stuff! Grown in the Himalayas, Sea Buckthorn is not only a fantastic topical ingredient to calm reactive skin and improve the overall look of our skin, but it is also highly nutritious when taken internally - something I have yet to try! I've recently been incorporating a few of their products into my routine, namely the SIBU Polishing Facial Cleanser*, Age Defying Eye Cream* and Sea Berry Seed Oil*. I've been enjoying them so much, I just had to feature them!

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Microfinishing Loose Powder, Lip Booster + Artist Liquid Matte Liquid Lip Color | Review

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Microfinishing Loose Powder Lip Booster Artist Liquid Matte Liquid Lip Color

One thing I love about Make Up For Ever is that they are always stepping up their game by releasing new, innovative products or putting a spin on existing products to make them that much better. I have been using their products for many years and I have very rarely been disappointed. The brand has recently added a few products to their Ultra HD line, namely the Ultra HD Microfinishing Loose Powder* and Ultra HD Lip Booster* and they have also come out with a handful of Artist Liquid Matte Liquid Lip Colors*, a few of which I have to share with you. Did these new products live up to my expectations? Keep reading to find out!

Morning Get Ready With Me ft. Yves Rocher + GIVEAWAY

Morning Get Ready With Me

One of my favourite things to watch are Get Ready With Me videos - catching a glimpse into someone's everyday life has always been fascinating to me. I am pretty much a creature of habit and enjoy having a set routine, although I will switch things up depending on the season, such as the products I use, food I eat and exercise I do. I have shared quite a few Get Ready With Me videos, however they have typically revolved around makeup, so this time around I wanted to film a more comprehensive video where I show you my actual morning routine where I share my breakfast, skincare routine and other rituals I do to get me ready for the day ahead. This post is in partnership with Yves Rocher*, and I'm excited to share what skincare products I have been enjoying from the brand. Keep reading to find out how you can win an Yves Rocher skincare regimen of your own!

Get Fuller-Looking Lashes and Brows with RapidLash & RapidBrow


This post was sponsored by RapidLash & RapidBrow as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.
RapidLash RapidBrow

I know I am not alone when I say that I fell victim to over plucking in my teenage years. What first started as an innocent attempt to get rid of a few strays ended up with me regretting even starting in the first place! Thankfully since then my hair has mostly come back, but I've always had this hope that they would look fuller. My eyelashes on the other hand have always been on the short and thin side, which means they are barely visible without a good coat or two of mascara. So when I was asked if I would like to put RapidLash and RapidBrow to the test, I jumped at the opportunity because hey, maybe these were just what I needed to turn my dreams into reality! For the last nine weeks, I have been diligently coating my hairs with both of these products daily, and it's finally time to reveal my results!

Soufeel Jewelry Rose Gold Charm Bracelet

Soufeel Jewelry Rose Gold Charm Bracelet

My jewelry collection is ever-growing, and one of my most prized possessions are my two Soufeel Jewelry bracelets I put together a couple of years ago (you can have a look here and here). I recently had the opportunity to build a third bracelet*, and this time around, instead of going for their basic bracelet, I opted for their rose gold clasp bracelet. Choosing charms is never an easy feat as there are so many to choose from (as in, over 500!), but after browsing through their various collections I found pieces that really spoke to me and I couldn't be happier with how everything came together. What I love about Soufeel is that all of their jewelry is made with 100% 925 sterling silver and they also use Swarovski and coloured gems to grace their creations, and despite their amazing quality their products are still very affordable. If you are looking for a Pandora-like bracelet at a fraction of the price, Soufeel is the way to go!

EPIC EMPTIES | Winter 2017 Edition

Epic Empties

Back at it again with a bunch of empties! I'm actually super pleased as I have cleared out a bunch of products I've been holding onto for a while, but also gave some extra products that have just been taking up space away to friends and family, and feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulder. Might have to do with spring cleaning and wanting to start the season on a lighter note, and I am sure a lot of you can relate. So without further ado, see below for a closer look and overview of my beauty and random trash, too!

These cleverly designed detangling hairbrushes are not only super adorable, but they are also convenient and get the job done without putting you through unnecessary pain - because if you also deal with hair prone to knotting and tangling, you know just what I'm talking about!

Purlisse Natural Skincare | Review

Purlisse Natural Skincare

My skin has been going through a rough patch and hasn't been behaving its best lately, so I've been reaching for a line that provides intense hydration, gentle exfoliation and light base makeup to help calm it down. I have found all of this in Purlisse, a natural skincare brand inspired by Asian beauty with key ingredients including Blue Lotus and White Tea which has done wonders for my reactive skin. From sheet masks, to eye serums, facial and lip moisturizers and even a BB cream, this brand has it all!

How To Remove Facial Hair with Dermaflash | Review + Demo

Dermaflash Facial Exfoliating Device Review Demo

Unwanted facial hair - if you don't have it, count yourself very lucky! Peach fuzz, chin hair, and a moustache are what I've been dealing with for years, but I was always afraid to tackle my insecurity so I just let the hair be (it helps that they become less visible during summer from lightening in the sun and makeup does wonders too). So when the opportunity arose to try the Dermaflash Facial Exfoliating Device*, I saw it as a sign that it was finally time... to shave my face! I thought it would be helpful to document my experience, so I walk you step by step through the shaving process, and it isn't as scary as you would think!
