2 looks 1 palette: urban decay naked ultraviolet eyeshadow palette

Has the Urban Decay Naked Ultraviolet Eyeshadow Palette been sitting in your online shopping cart? Is it on your wish list? Have you been wondering how it performs? The latest release from Urban Decay has certainly been making waves. Some beauty lovers adore it and others have mixed feelings. Personally, this palette has been on my latest list of loves. Mostly because of the exciting colour story. Essentially, I see the Ultraviolet palette as being split into two halves. The first is all about warm neutrals and the second half is loaded with gorgeous purple shades. In the middle there are two holographic shades to round it all out. With a mixture of matte, shimmer, glitter, and holographic eyeshadows...this eyeshadow palette has a little bit of everything going on. (In case you missed it, be sure to check out my full review of the Urban Decay Naked Ultraviolet Eyeshadow Palette.) With two very different colour stories, it only made sense to create two different makeup looks.

Bridesmaid dresses have been on my mind an awful lot lately. Probably because I will be attending a wedding in the not-so-distant future. Next month, I will actually be a bridesmaid in a small, socially distanced wedding. It will certainly be a unique experience. But at least there will be a beautiful dress in my future! Slowly but surely, weddings and special events are beginning to take place again. Though there will be certain restrictions and lots of safety measures....those milestone moments are something to look forward to. Do you have a special event coming up? A socially distanced wedding? A fancy-dress Zoom call? There are many reasons to wear a gorgeous dress. Even more so these days. Getting glam is a wonderful way to boost your mood and enjoy some much-needed normality. One place that you can find a beautiful bridesmaid dress is on Alfabridal.

looking back: summer highlights and seasonal memories

Somehow, summer is over. Officially. The season definitely seemed to zoom by. Though my mind has been focused on fall lately (the early fall tag is a prime example of that)...a part of me will still be sad to see summer leave. Mostly because this summer was a little unconventional. Normally, there would've been concerts and visits to the CNE. Instead, it was largely spent indoors, attempting to stay as safe as possible. That being said, there were some summer highlights. And since each year, I like to look back at those meaningful seasonal memories, this seemed like the perfect opportunity to do so. So without further ado, here are some of the memories made over the last few months.

Can you believe it? Somehow, the fall season is here to stay. Already, the weather is cooler and everyone is starting to layer up their clothing and bundle up inside as much as possible. That makes the onesie pajama style an absolute must-have for this time of year. Not only is it comfortable and cute...but it can help you stay warm and cozy too. What could be better? There are many reasons to consider a fun and fabulous onesie. They look great, they express tons of personality, and they help to battle against those chilly temperatures. It's a win-win-win situation. Not sure where to find the perfect onesie for the fall and winter season? Take a look at the Alfagoody website.

nude by nature lip trio (review + video)

Surprises are not my favourite. I am someone that likes to know what is coming and when. In fact, I am guilty of reading spoilers for television shows and reading movie summaries before heading to a theater. There is comfort in knowing. Despite this, it was especially surprising (in a good way) when my husband came home with a Nude by Nature Lip Trio. He knew that I had been missing some of the simple things in life. Like being able to see friends without social distance, heading to the nearest shopping mall, and seasonal attractions. So, even though he couldn't fix the world....he could bring a smile to my face with some unexpected makeup. On that note! Today's post is all about the Nude by Nature Lip Trio in the shade Dusk. Take a closer look at what was inside, see some swatches, a YouTube video, and find out whether these products wowed.

Sometimes, fashion can be serious. Other times, fashion knows how to make a statement. It can be playful, exciting, and express your personality. If you prefer colourful creations, bold patterns, and comfortable attire at home...then a onesie is likely your best bet. These whimsical styles have a way of making even the gloomiest day feel a little bit brighter. This is something I can personally attest to! Onesies always cheer me up. There are several onesies in my closet that I reach for on days where I just need that extra oomph! The ultra comfy design paired with the oh-so-cute theme makes the onesie an undeniable essential part of sleep and loungewear. Are you looking for some onesie pajamas to add to your wardrobe this season? Then consider checking out the selection from Alfagoody.

does it work?? morgan taylor nail polish (plum tuckered out)

Now that September is mindset is shifting towards darker and deeper colours. Especially when it comes to nail polish. A lot of times, the start of September has me desperately clinging onto the last lingering moments of summer. I would find myself painting my nails a bright pink or neon orange as a way to symbolically prove that summer wasn't over just yet.  Not this year. This year, the summer season seemed a little lackluster thanks to world events. So in a way,  I am looking forward to fall. It will be nice to move away from the summertime associations (and all of the things that were missed) and welcome in something fresh and new instead. Something perfect for fall? A dark plum nail polish from Morgan Taylor. This was my first experience with the brand, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect. Would it work? Be a total failure? Here is everything you need to know about the Morgan Taylor nail polish in the shade Plum Tuckered Out.
