Winter is Upon Us!

      I’m not sure where you all live but here in Canada with winter comes snow, and with snow comes amazing outerwear! Now, normally in cold weather all you want to do it put a large puffy jacket on and some Ugg boots and sulk out into the dark shadow filled world. However, why not change things up this winter and let your style shine. Ditch the marshmallow cover ups and chunky boots, and put on a vamped up red riding hood coat, or a trench lined with (faux) fur in a stand out color and rock out into the powdery streets.

     Why not leave the SADS in the past and fill your mind and wardrobe with an amazing selection of burgundies, pearls, and maybe even a hot pink. Take a risk and wear something that might be a little outside of your comfort zone, because I can guarantee that if you do, you will get people asking where you got that gorgeous sweater, or your heavy knit eternity scarf. You never know, you just might start a new trend!

     So leave the blacks and greys at the back of your wardrobe and put on that item that you bought on a whim, but have never worn. Just trust me! It may be the greatest decision you will make this coming season.

Jumped Out Of My Rut!

     So I was a little naughty and went on another haul, but this time it was makeup!...and boring necessities. I've been watching a lot of Youtube videos or 'Vlogs' if you will. Specifically Zoella, Sprinkle of Glitter and Fleur De Force!( if you haven't seen them, what have you been doing?) Anyway, they've inspired me to go out and buy some new makeup. I always stick with what I know and what works for my skin, so it's fair to say that I have been in a rut regarding my makeup products and even the application. I think the last time that I bought something new, and not just a repurchase of a favorite, was in April when I went to Seattle with my sisters. I bought my first E.L.F product! A neutral eyeshadow palette for $5.00, and since then I haven't bought anything new or exciting. I thought that if i'm going to be doing this whole makeup/ fashion blog thing, I'm going to do it right!

    First I'll do the boring bits and then get into the more exciting ones. So I ran out of deodorant, as you do, and had to buy a new one.The one I was using before was just a cheap drugstore brand one, and although I don't really expect much from a deodorant it really truly was completely and utterly useless! Unless of course you like the look of white marks all over your clothes. So I thought I would actually spend money on one ( I know it's only 3 dollars, but thats still, in my mind, a lot for a deodorant) I ended up getting a Dove one with the promise that I would be able to 'Go Sleevless in five days' ! It has a very clean crisp scent, almost like fabric softener but strangely less fake. Then I bought some St.Ives cleansing cloths, now I normally don't buy these types of things because I find them a waste of money, but I've become increasingly lazy about taking my makeup off at night. My thought process was that if I had these and I didnt want to do the whole messy process of taking my makeup off with a cleanser and water, which gets everywhere!, I would still be able to have a clear face. I've only used one sheet and at first I was severely underwhelmed because the sheets, I think, are pretty small and they don't have a lot of liquid/cleanser on them. After though I looked at my face and it actually did a decent job of removing any makeup off of my face, and I was wearing waterproof eyeliner and mascara so even though i've only used 1 sheet I am pretty impressed with this product. You get 32 sheets for $7.00 from Walmart.

    Now after all that rambling I'll do the more exciting stuff! After the many reviews from the wonderful Sprinkle of Glitter on the amazing Revlon Lip Butters, I finally caved in and bought one. When  I went they didn`t really have that many in stock so I ended up getting one called `Sugar Frosting`. I have tried it quite a few times and I see why so many people rave about it, however I almost instantly regretted buying it solely based on the color. It really is like sugar frosting, when its on your lips it looks as though you've been eating half a dozen glazed doughnuts. Although delicious it`s not a very good look to have on your lips, but I think that it would be better if you put a color underneath it, and use it as a shimmer top coat. Don`t get me wrong, I do like this product I just wish I could exchange it for another shade.

    Next I got my favorite and best buy, the Loreal Paris Color Infallible creme powder eyeshadow, in shade 021 Sahara Treasure. I absolutely ADORE this product! It`s a nice deep gold with small black flecks throughout, a definite must have for this holiday season. I have had this on from 11 am and it`s now 6:06 pm and it still looks like I just applied it. When I tried to apply it with my eyeshadow brush it didnt go on very smoothly, but when I tried it with my finger it was incredible! and super pigmented! I do think that this was made to be applied with your finger, so just make sure that your hands are clean before you apply to avoid the spread of bacteria. I can't say enough about how amazing this product is; it glides on, it blends well, so far it has stayed on longer than any of my high end ones, and it`s just a great shade with a strong pigment. This bad boy cost me $8.87.

    So all in all i`m happy that I climbed my way out of the rut I`ve been in, and tried something new. I encourage you all to watch some beauty reviews on Youtube to get some ideas on what you like and what works for you. Who knows, maybe it will turn into a makeup staple for you! X
