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

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?!

Mary Kay Gel Semi-Shine Lipstick

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

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

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

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.
