April Beauty Favourites

I don’t know if you are all aware but its SPRING… which means less is definitely more. I try to keep my makeup minimal year round but spring and summer are definitely seasons where my makeup laziness kicks in. I’ve put together some Beauty MUST HAVES that I definitely enjoy but think some of you would too!



For someone with pale combination skin it gets to be extremely difficult to find a foundation which not only compliments my skin tone but also keeps my skin to behave. I first came across this foundation last February and have been OBSESSED ever since. I always used to have a sort of orange tint with other foundations but this one really does stay true to my vampireesque skin. It also takes a while throughout the day with this foundation for it to become visibly oily. This is very rare for me and makes this foundation a true essential.




AHHHH WHERE DO I EVEN START WITH THIS PALLETTE!!! I believe I’ve owned this palette for about 2 years now and I’ve never been let down yet. The pink undertones and flattering hues which it contains really compliments paler skin and makes me feel some type of way. You can go from work au naturel to nighttime smoky through one swipe in the crease. I really could go on all day so I’ll try to stop now LOL.



Now I’m not claiming to be anything close to a beauty guru in any way but contouring with this palette has done wonders for me. For someone who’s a little bit of a beginner when it comes to contouring and things, this palette is perfect. It had three basic shades for contouring with one to highlight with as well. The simplicity is intoxicating and I’m in love. I usually put this on and then add a little bronzer over top to give more of an overall glow. (P.S. Before you ask, yes, I do need the bronzer because without it I look pale like I don’t even have a pulse.)




Lastly, I have a fairly new product which I just recently discovered. I had spent years searching for a moisturizer which hydrated my skin yet didn’t cause it to get oily. This moisturizer has been a very fresh discovery and I’ll never let it go! It makes a great light base under my foundation as well as concealing the oil the best it can. I’m actually considering buying the whole face oil control set and see if they’re just as good. I’ll let you all know if I do 🙂

There’s a first for everything…

Hi Friends!

As the title might’ve led you to believe, this is my very first blog post! I thought I should outline some of my goals and hopes for this blog as well as how I would like to connect with you all.

A little about me would be that I’m currently 20 years old and studying Media and Communications with a minor in Women and Gender Studies. I’ve always loved anything and everything related to beauty and fashion but I would constantly find myself too shy or not confident enough to post about it on my social media accounts. I’m trying to find my groove within this industry as well as expand my creative mind. I’ve always loved reading and writing so I figured that blogging might be the most fulfilling transition into expressing myself in this way.

This blog is meant to provide content from my everyday life to how I style myself to beauty trends I enjoy. My reasoning for making this blog was to provide myself with an outlet with the hopes of expressing my pent up artistic aggression on you all. My goals are to connect with a following which enjoy the same things I do and wouldn’t mind talking as well as comparing. I am by no means an expert in any way shape or form so this blog is to help me widen my artistic horizons and push boundaries.

Along with any millennial, I’m obsessed with aesthetics. Anything that is aesthetically pleasing or is beautiful in some way, I absolutely love.  In the Life section of this blog, I’ll be talking about food I’m into, lifestyle hacks, places to see and things to do!

Now, I’m in no way stating that I’m a cook or I’m good at making food BUT since I’m most likely not alone in my non well-versed kitchen lifestyle, I will post recipes and ideas for other simpletons who just don’t have that cooking bug. Along with food I would like to post lifestyle hacks for everyday life because I find those tips and tricks help me enormously.

My home has always been Ottawa, Ontario so as a native I think I’ve got some experience in what to do, see and eat in this city! I will be posting these kinds of travel guides for those just passing through our beautiful capital. I’m also a huge travel lover so there will be some updates, stories and tricks along with my trips so you can all learn from my mistakes LOL.



For all of my naturally beautiful people out there who still want to wear makeup (even though they’re already gorgeous) I’ve got some ideas for you! I plan on making this section all about my makeup hacks as well as experiences I have with various products. I will be making “Monthly Favourites” posts to let you guys know some products that I’m really currently loving as well as some that just didn’t live up to their hype.

I’m all about the “looks like I’m not wearing makeup” look so this section will be a lot of that. In my mind it’s about accentuating what you’ve got without creating what you don’t have through makeup. Again I’M NOT AN EXPERT so these are just my personal opinions and experiences that I want to share with all of you beautiful people.



I don’t know if it’s just me but fashion is so inter-changeable that sometimes I just can’t keep up with all the current trends. I hope that in keeping this blog I can encourage myself to get creative and think of ideas which are similar to popular trends but have my own sort of twist on them. I also want to show petite girls that you CAN wear what you want.. if you know how to do it. As a woman who’s 5 feet tall, I live the daily struggle of finding clothes which fit my body properly and accentuate my best features. I hope to shed light on some clothing trends that may seem to be for the tall and skinny but can be for the petite as well!!

Fashion has always been something that I use to not only express myself but also that gives me a sort of silent confidence. The saying of “if you look good, you feel good” always applies! In my eyes, if I don’t look good I won’t get anything done. But if I’m feeling myself, I will definitely feel like I want to be productive. This may not apply to all of you but this is just how I feel. So, this section is really just to encourage self love and body positivity by choosing clothes FOR YOU and which make you feel like the best.

Thanks for reading and til next blog 🙂
