Holiday Glitz on a Budget | Hard Candy Holiday 2017

hard candy holiday 2017 (1)::: press sample :::

If there is only one season of the year where one can fully immerse themselves in glitter, it has to be the holidays. A little glitter injection never hurts a celebration, right? Hard Candy is all about that shimmery life, but also believe you can achieve that glittery perfection without spending a ton. As such, they have a quite a few glitzy options in their large array of holiday offerings...

Gimme Some Sugar | Fresh Sugar Holiday 2017 Gift Sets

fresh sugar holiday 2017 gift sets (4)::: press sample / affiliate links :::

I don't know... Does it feel like the holiday season to you? I've spent the day immersed in a bunch of holiday launches (SO many great posts in the works!) but it just doesn't feel like the season is really here yet. I was shopping a few days ago, and the holiday music just seemed so out of place. I mean, I'm not really fan of it to begin with (no, I'm not a total Scrooge) but I digress. Fresh (their Sugar range specifically) is ringing in the season with some very adorable, limited edition, lip sets that make for great additions to any stocking or gift.

loccitane holiday 2017 (3)::: press sample / affiliate links :::

Gift giving can be precarious at times. Sometimes you need to scour hidden corners of the oddest little shop to find the perfect gift, yet other times it's as easy as finding the right pre-made gift set. L'Occitane happens to excel in the gift set arena. They have something for every budget and just about every kind of skincare lover on your list. Oh, and a pretty awesome advent calendar...

It's kind of hard to believe, but 2017 is almost over. The December Pearlesque Box featuring SkinOwl wraps up the year quite nicely, and I may add, makes an excellent gift for any skincare lovers (especially luxury facial oil fans...)

The Holiday Splurge | Cle de Peau Beauté Nuit de Chine Collection Eye Colour Pencils

cle de peau nuit de chine eye colour pencils (5)::: press sample / affiliate links :::

I enjoy a lively debate from time to time (it's a moment where a know-it-all can really shine.) One I've found myself in more than once is the age old question of is it acceptable to gift yourself a little something at this time of year. I always fall on the yes side. A little something-something for yourself is no biggie, especially if it's something you know you'll never be gifted. As much as I love beauty, I tend not to receive beauty related gifts, which leaves me to my own devices. If you're looking for a little splurge for yourself (or a special someone on your list, of course) The Cle de Peau Nuit de Chine  Collection Eye Colour Pencils fit the bill.

Oh, Canada! | Pixi Beauty at Shoppers Drug Mart

Canada is a great place to call home, but (you knew there was a but right?) not everything is accessible here. I know, we live in an internet age, where a few clicks can get you just about anything. Sure, if you live in the USA. There is a magical line between the US and Canada that makes shipping things here either impossible or outrageously expensive. Things like Pixi Beauty. Luckily, beauty fans don't have to scour the internet for their Pixi fix as the brand is now available at Shoppers Drug Mart! Exciting times, right?!

It's a lipstick kind of day, which is great because Mary Kay is at it again with a new range of gorgeous hues. last year, we saw the introduction of their Gel Semi-Mattes (these ones) so it only makes sense that they've created a Gel Semi-Shine version for us to covet. With twelve cream and shimmer finish options, there is something for every lip lover.

The Fast Five | High End Hair with Joico & Shu Uemura

the fast five high end hair shu uemura joico::: press sample / affiliate links :::

There is something to be said for good hair days. I recently re-vamped my hair colour (a mermaid-y blue-teal blend) and the change has definitely put some va-va-voom into my overall sense of self. No matter how you like your hair (myself? Messy curls with a lot of volume and texture) when it looks good, you can't help but feel good. The hard part, for me anyway, as I am not very skilled in the hair department, is getting it to that sweet spot. I've got your back though (but you knew that) with five products that make perfect hair so much easier to come by.

Take it Off | Vichy Pureté Thermale Makeup Removing Micellar Wipes

vichy purete thermale makeup removing micellar wipes  (1)::: press sample :::

I've been a bad blogger lately... I start each week with the intention of at least four posts going up (five if I'm really on the ball) but life with Bertie is... Let's just say I forgot how crazy kittens can be. Today we were meant to be chatting a few high-end hair products, but Little Miss (aka the kitten) was in a mood and there was no way I was going to get a full set of photos done. So, we're catting skincare instead. It's actually a great sub in as the new Vichy Pureté Thermale Makeup Removing Micellar Wipes are pretty fantastic.

Happy (wait, what day is it...) Thursday! Thursday sounds like it could be a great day for a little Essie, no? Sure it does. Can you tell I have absolutely no kind of intro for this blog post? Anyway, the Essie Wild Nudes Collection more than makes up for my uninspired introduction.

Too Faced Melted Latex Liquified High Shine Lipstick

too faced melted latex liquified high shine lipstick (3)::: press sample / affiliate links :::

Little known fact about me, I love scary movies. Thing is, I really don't get scared anymore. At least, not by the typical horror fare. What does give me major creeps? Latex masks. Those fetish masks where your face is completely covered leave me feeling incredibly uneasy. Add gas masks (especially the old-timey style) and those invisible/black out masks and I'm out. Oh, and the Blue Man Group *shudders* those guys don't sit well with me either. Anyway, where was this going? Latex. Too Faced doesn't seem to have any phobias surrounding the glossy stuff, and has aptly named their newest Melted offering after it.

Primer can be a polarizing topic, depending on the beauty fan. I'm neither a hater or a lover, but I do appreciate the promise of a smoother, more perfected base for makeup. Who isn't, right? On the constant quest to find the 'one', I added Stila One Step Illuminate Skin Tone Illuminating Primer to my makeup routine. Did it wok wonders? Read on to find out...

In my preparations of this post, I found myself thinking back to all of the scents I've worn in my life. Mainly, the scents I wore in my younger years. It's amazing how scent can take you back to a certain time or place, or in the case of the Avon BE Fragrance Collection, set a mood.

The Fast Five | Make Up For Ever Edition

::: press sample / affiliate links :::

I've learned kittens (or at least mine) don't care what you're trying to do, as long as they get what they want. I've spent the last half hour trying to set this little blog post up while cradling a very sleep bundle of fur. Easier typed (especially since I'm still holding her) than done. I know, you're thinking why don't I just put her down. You're funny; I tired. She just crawls back up. So with that, I say take any typos as kitten-related incidents and just enjoy the a few new Make Up For Ever goodies. Ready? You know what to do...

You know what the end of the month means... A new Pearlesque Box! The November box is especially interesting, at least I think, as it features a relatively new brand, Niu Body. What makes Niu Body a bit different from the heard of natural, organic-type brands is that they believe in great quality without inflated prices. Sounds promising right? Read on for a closer look at what 's in the box...

No, your eyes have not deceived you. The Farmhouse Fresh goodies up for discussion today most certainly look more like something you'd pop on a cracker than the bath, but they are indeed soap. Their cheese like appearance was no accident though. You'll have to read on for more info as to why...

A Very Kitty Christmas | Paul & Joe Beauté Holiday 2017

paul & joe beaute holiday 2017 (4)::: press sample :::

Are you trying to be a more organized, productive human? If you answered yes, I have the best tip you'll ever hear: don't get a kitten. As you may know, I got a cute little calico kitten (non-dilute this time) a month or so ago. Is she absolutely adorable?  You bet. Is she complete chaos almost every minute she's awake? You double bet. I've had a few cats over the course of my life, but none have been quite as trying as little Bertie. She makes every task take just a little lot longer and makes life just a bit messier. But, she's not the cat you're here for. Today it's all about the frolicking felines that adorn the Paul & Joe Beauté Holiday 2017 Collection.

Healthy & Happy Hair | Kerastase Aura Botanica

kerastase aura botanica hair care (3)::: press sample / affiliate links :::

When it comes to hair care, some brands just do it better. Once of such brands? Kerastase. Prior to my first use a few years ago, I assumed the brand was mostly hype. I was wrong. At the time my hair was quite damaged, but their famous conditioner (you likely know the one) was one of the few products that really made a difference in my hair. Kerastase instantly had my respect. So, you can see why I was kind of thrilled to get my hands on their newest collection: Aura Botanica.

Remember being a teen dealing with acne and thinking "at least I'll grow out of this..." Umm, yeah. No. It doesn't quite work out like that. Granted, I don't breakout the same way I one did, but I still deal with acne from time to time, so I was super intrigued by the new Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Mask. Designed to treat mild to moderate acne, the space-age looking mask utilizes the power of light and offers an alternative to harsh chemical treatments.

sally hansen black to basics collection (1)::: press sample / affiliate links :::

It is almost criminal how long it's been since I properly did my nails. As someone who quite often paints them up to twice a week, my almost month long absence was extra abnormal. I just wasn't feeling into anything. Luckily I snapped out of it when a few of the new Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Black to Basics Collection arrived. Oddly enough, it was the mono-chromatics that got me feeling polish again, and even got me into a bit of nail art.

*Brushes away cobwebs* Ahem. let's see if I can remember how to do this... You may have noticed it's been a few since my last post, but life. That's it, just life. And not the super exciting, aren't you jealous kind of life, the one that barges in and has a way of obliterating any sense of order. You've been there. That said, it was perfect timing for the Candy.ca September box, because candy most definitely makes things better. Plus, it's Candy.ca's birthday, so you know it's going to be extra good (and, spoiler, it is!)

When I first learned about beauty subscription boxes (a few years ago, by now) I was immediately interested. The thing was, as a Canadian I had to wait it out as there were none shipping here. Fast forward to present day, and there are a litany of boxes shipping worldwide. Such progress! Of course, a lot of have overdosed on boxes (I know I have) and no longer subscribe with such vigor. Avon has a new box that takes the idea of a subscription box, but makes it a little more user friendly.

It's fancy tweezer day! You may be thinking that you don't need fancy tweezers, but I might just be able to change your mind. I know I am not one to put a whole lot of effort into my tweezer choices, especially not since I started wearing false lashes. I swear, every pair of tweezers I have (and there more than a few, more than one person truly needs) is sticky from grabbing them to pop lashes on. I will not let these La Tweez tweezers suffer that fate though. You'll have to read on to find out why...

I know, when you think beauty blog you automatically think dental care, right?! Kidding. But really, I kind of love dental stuff- toothpaste, toothbrushes, floss... Dorky, perhaps, but most of us have teeth and spend a few moments a day tending to them. Day in day out. You might as well give your routine a little shake up every now and again, and maybe add in something a little more natural too.

I've been a bit of a bod blogger... I kind of (okay, totally) forgot about what was meant to be a monthly feature: The Sweet Tooth. Ooops? I really don't know how I did it, but whatever the reason, it's back! The very friendly peeps at Waterbrige sent a few of their new goodies after I featured some of their British candies (or sweeties, if you want to be all proper.) Their new Smooth & Creamy range features four milk chocolate bars, sure to please just about everyone, because really, who can pass up chocolate?

Do you ever get one specific song in your head and it's all you can think about? I've been obsessed with John Lennon's Mother the last few days and it is all I've wanted to listen to. I'm trying to ration my consecutive listenings, but it's just too good! I've just realized this doesn't really tie into our scent of the day, but sometimes intros just don't work that way. Anyway, Juicy Couture is back with a new edition to their popular scent family: Viva la Juicy Glacé

Happy Thursday! I am in a particularly great mood today, I think in part to the mini dance party I ended up having in the shower this morning. No worries, I have a non-slip mat (this cute one!) There is just something about shower music that makes me supremely happy. Anyway, it feels like a skincare day, does it not? I can always go for a bit of skincare, but I know not everyone is as keen as I am. So, today is all about anti-aging skincare in the form of two new additions to the Dermalogica Age Smart range with their Nightly Lip Treatment & Antioxidant Hydramist.

You know what September means... Pumpkin spice everything! Wait, no. I mean, yeah it does, but that's not what quite what I was thinking. It's back to school season! Now, if you're like me, you haven't been back to school in a few years. Whatever. I still get a bit excited about the season as I happen to be a major lover of school supplies (aka stationary) and take every chance to pick up new additions to my stash. That said, there are also beauty finds to be... well, found. Quo is offering up some most excellent option this year that are sure to please just about everyone from makeup newbies to seasoned collectors.

The new additions to the range include fluid foundation, highlighter, and nail polish giving the brand a bit of everything you could want. Plus, like all products from the brand, happen to be natural and organic, free of undesirable things like chemicals, petroleum by-products, preservatives and synthetic fragrance.

I'm breaking my self-imposed rules and starting the blog week off with skincare. I tend to like to start with something a bit more colourful, but in the case of the L'Occitane Pivoine Sublime range, you're still getting a dose of pretty hues thanks to all the pink. If you hadn't noticed, everything in this range comes clad in shades of pink. As you've likely also deduced, everything features peony with the promise of "perfection upon first contact." Sounds promising, right?

Anyway, you're not here for new music chat, you're here for the NYX. I've got a few random bits from the brand, so a round of This, That & Other Stuff just made sense.

Mascara Monday is overrated. That, and I was not nearly organized enough to get a post up on Monday. Regardless, we're talking mascara today. No, not just any mascara, but a la-dee-da, fancy-ass, designer mascara. Whaaaat?! Normally, I avoid pricier mascaras as I haven't had the greatest experience with them and have found you can find some stellar drugstore options. But, as a mascara fan, I couldn't pass up an opportunity to slather on a new formula. The verdict? You'll have to keep reading to find out...

Farmhouse Fresh | Fresh Finds from the Farm

farmhouse fresh  fresh finds from the farm::: press sample / affiliate link :::

I am currently a sleep deprived human, and I am the first to admit I don't tend to function well on less than eight hours. I am currently trying to train a kitten that not everything needs to be bitten. More specifically, my fleshy bits. If she's awake, she's either plotting her attack (and bite) or in the act of biting me. Is she adorable? You bet. Does she melt my heart when she crawls up in my arms for naps? You bet. Do I also kind of want to kill her after she's woken me up every hour and a half to play bite? I'll let you figure that one out... Toothy kittens have nothing to do with today's Farmhouse Fresh post, but I'm tired. Anyway, lets dig in to some especially great finds from the farm.

I actually don't mind, as fall is my favourite season and I have a penchant for the hues that accompany it.

I was recently sent the July Candy.ca box and, as per usual, it's bursting with a fun selection of sugar-laden offerings.

The best thing I did for my hair was cut it off. Not that it was in terrible shape, I've just found that my new cut has given me a new love for my hair. I went from feeling pretty meh about it, to loving how it looks. Loving your hair is a great feeling. As women, we tend to put a lot of our self-worth into our hair, so when we feel like it's less-than we feel like less than. Clearly, we're more than our hair, but there is a simple way to give what you've got a boost...

Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Acne Care

thursday plantation tea tree acne care (3)::: press sample / affiliate links :::

No matter how big or small your acne battles are, having the right products around make a world of difference. The hard part? Finding products that actually on your skin and acne type. It usually takes a bit of trial and error, but one magical ingredient often helps on everyone.... tea tree. Its pungent scent definitely takes some getting used to but its antiseptic properties are perfect for banishing blemishes.
