everyday makeup look feat. the balm magnetic personality palette


Some days are all about colour, glitter, and pizzazz. Other days are better suited to neutrals and straight forward makeup looks. Typically, I save the glitz and glamour for nights out and special events. Then the warm neutrals and subtle smokey looks are my everyday, going to work, running errands go-tos. A little while back, I stumbled upon the Magnetic Personality eyeshadow palette from theBalm. This is a brand that I've noticed popping up more and more where I live. From mini displays at the drugstore to discount stores like Winners and Marshalls....theBalm is taking over.

meeting trisha paytas (concert + meet and greet experience 2019)


Some people do more than shine. They inspire. They make you excited about life. They allow you to feel seen and understood. For me, Trisha Paytas is someone that checks all the boxes. She inspires, excites, and always manages to make me feel understood. I have been watching her videos on YouTube for many years now. In fact, I've also purchased all of her music and plenty of her merchandise as well. Needless to say, I am forever in her corner. Though she has certainly had ups and downs (including her most recent controversy)....Trisha is someone I truly admire. She isn't afraid to be vulnerable, to learn from mistakes, and find hope in situations that feel hopeless. Even when past mistakes are thrown her face, she picks herself back up, and keeps shining her light on this world. I believe in who she is and who she can be.

Recently, Trisha had a concert date in a nearby city. This was an event I had been looking forward to for over five months. I bought a meet and greet ticket for "The Heartbreak Tour" the second they went on sale...and had been counting down the days ever since. Finally, the big day came and it was time to see the iconic Trisha Paytas on tour.

inspired by: FeelinGirl shapewear


Shapewear has been on my radar for quite a while. I remember seeing celebrities like the Kardashians promoting various types of shapewear a few years back. Most notably, waist trainers. The idea of shapewear was intriguing to me right from the start. Why? A smoother, sleeker look opened up so many fashion possibilities. Body con dresses, pencil skirts, and so much more! As a fashion lover, this was certainly an exciting concept. Products that could smooth, re-shape, and define meant no style was off limits. No design was too form fitting or difficult to wear. While waist trainers are certainly still popular, there are plenty of other shapewear options these days. Are you interested in finding out what those options are? Or maybe trying shape wear for yourself? Then you will want to check out the many available items from Feelingirl.

Spectacular. That is the best way to describe the fall season. It is full of natural beauty and plenty of wonder. The downside? The change in temperature can be hard on your skin. Cooler temperatures often cause issues like dryness, flakes, and itching. Not how most of us imagine a fun-filled season! Thankfully there are a number of ways to keep your skin looking and feeling hydrated. Keep reading to find out how you can combat dry skin this fall.

#FOTD featuring sephora #lipstories (margs matte lipstick)


Sometimes, inspiration for a makeup look just pops into your head. Other times, a particular product inspires the look. Recently, the lipstick shade Margs entered my life. It was a shade so different, so unique, and so unlike anything else in my makeup collection that it became impossible not to be inspired. Though I do own a few green lipstick shades (you can check out one of them here)....this was a completely different kind of green. It was swampy, moss-like, and matte. Not to mention, ultra affordable. The tube of lipstick set me back a mere $10. Not bad for a unique lipstick shade. Want to see it in action? Find out how the product performs? Then keep reading....

elizabeth and james perfume review (nirvana french grey)


Perfume is one of my many passions. There is something special about it. The elegant bottles....scents that can highlight your mood....or accent your personality....ahh, bliss! At the moment, I have a rather large perfume collection. I love having a wide variety of scents to choose from (to suit every occasion) but I also love all of the different bottles. Some are truly unique, beautiful, and inspired. Though I do not need more perfume in my collection, every now and then, it is hard to say no. Especially when a fragrance seems to sweep you off your feet. That is exactly what happened when I smelled the Elizabeth and James perfume, Nirvana French Grey.

review: dominique cosmetics (rustic glam eyeshadow palette)


It was love at first shadow. While wandering the aisles of Sephora with a friend one afternoon....it caught my eye. The eyeshadow shade, Desert Queen, that is. It is a soft, peachy, almost orange colour. Warm, bold, and yet still effortlessly wearable. The colour was everything I didn't know I was looking for. That shade is the reason the Rustic Glam palette from Dominique Cosmetics entered my life. Though the rest of the colours in the palette looked beautiful and were also compelling....Desert Queen made me positively giddy. Ready to take a peek inside? See what Desert Queen actually looks like? Here is everything you need to know about this high end eyeshadow palette.
