I was hanging out with some friends recently and were talking about how beautiful false lashes were. It can elevate an otherwise every day look to a glam, sexy eye. Long, full lashes are definitely the most coveted accessories year-round. But unfortunately, if you have fine lashes like me, sometimes layering on mascara just isn't enough. When I was younger, I thought false lashes only came around during Halloween and it wasn't until high school that I realized just how far false lashes have come for everyday use! Whether you step foot in a drugstore or specialty store, there are so many different styles of false lashes available now that there is something for everyone. And yes, you can definitely find natural false lashes!
I love trying out new products and I'm most excited when they turn out to be revolutionary products that change my skincare routine. I was able to discover the Shiseido IBUKI Smart Filtering Smoother Serum courtesy of Influenster. The claim for the Smart Filtering Smoother is that it helps to improve shine and visible pores instantly. The Smart Filtering Smoother acts as a serum, but has a finishing touch that helps to create photo-ready skin.
Growing up, I had extremely oily skin. This led to acne and feeling insecure about my skin (my story here!). I went through countless beauty products, different prescriptions and overall lifestyle changes. But barely anything changed. When I was younger, one of my mom's friends had recommended a facial oil and I was very skeptical that it would help my troubled skin. When oily or acneic skinned people hear about applying oils to the skin, they cringe and run away in fear. I did too, but trust me when I say there are definitely misconceptions about oils. In fact, oils can actually help to hydrate, protect, purify and help balance the skin. They also contain concentrated ingredients so a little goes a long way! (P.S. The facial oil actually helped my skin!)
I am by no means a fashionista. I'm probably the most far from it. If it's comfy, I'll wear it... probably even if it looks like a potato sack. In all honesty though, I have gotten so much better with my fashion sense. Trust me! That's why I mainly turn to Polyvore for fashion inspiration. Polyvore has a great community of people with good fashion sense and it makes it so easy to see exactly how to pair those crazy shoes you bought to different clothes you never thought would match!
Whether you're young or old, it's always nice to receive goodies at Easter. It's easier to put together things in a basket for kids, but what about the preteens and adults? Sure chocolate is always nice, but sometimes having a more customized basket is nicer. That's why I put together a little post for an Easter basket idea for the beauty lover in your life!
Heading into the 11th year of the Green Living Show, the Metro Convention Centre holds 400+ vendors. This 3 day event features natural green products and services available to Canadians. Considered as one of the largest consumer eco-show of the region, the Green Living Show discusses different ways to lead a steady, healthy life in society in the Wellness, Health & Fitness industry.
Growing up, I always had fond memories of walking to school. I particularly enjoyed it when it was raining. I was both fascinated and grossed out by all the earthworms surfacing and made sure I didn't step on any. Although rainy, spring is one of my favourite seasons because it means warmer weather & summer is coming! Paying homage to my favourite season, I put together a little Spring lookbook to feature new beauty releases and hot spring fashion. This year's Spring 2017 fashion and beauty releases feature light pastel colours and all of the holographic tones you can think of.
I haven't done an empties post before, but I've finished quite a few products last quarter. I've been trying to clear out the clutter in my life and that includes my messy desk! You can read my previous post on what I've started with. I've only saved what I used up for the month of March so going forward, I'll be more diligent to save up all products I've used! For those that are not familiar with Empties Posts, it's a round up of products that bloggers have used up for the month. So, it's bloggers essentially taking pictures of their trash of the month. If you're looking at these posts on the outside, this can be pretty strange. I personally like reading empties posts because it makes it feel like there's proof as to how much someone likes a particular product.
Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of attending the media preview of the 2017 Green Living Show. This year's Green Living Show is taking place at the Metro Convention Centre April 7th-9th in downtown Toronto. Running for its 11th year, there were many innovative products being featured from this year's show at the preview. I took a few photos to show you what happens at a media preview.
