review: infiniti premier conair hair dryer

In the middle of blow drying my hair....poof! My beloved Kardashian Beauty hair dryer stopped working. This was upsetting for a few reasons. Partly because half of my hair was still wet and partly because I really loved that hair dryer. It was something I had used for the last five years or so. Then suddenly, it was time to say so long. When it came to choosing a replacement, I was totally clueless. What did I need? What did I want? How much was I willing to spend? In the end, it was the Infiniti Premier hair dryer by Conair that entered my life. Keep reading to find out what the features are and how the hair dryer performed.

pur x barbie collection (mini haul + review)

Barbie has always been a part of my life. Believe it or not, my very first word was "Barbie." Not mom or dad....Barbie. I guess I have always had good taste! There has always been something about this iconic doll. She could do absolutely anything she set her mind to. Barbie could be a veterinarian, teacher, astronaut, singer, artist. You name it, she could do it. Growing up, I loved everything about her. I loved her positive attitude in the commercials and cartoons. I loved her fabulous sense of style. I loved that she seemed to be able to take on the world! To me, Barbie represented confidence, intelligence, and poise. That's the magical thing about Barbie. She can mean so many different things to so many different people. So, when I was given a few items from the Pur x Barbie collection for my birthday last month, it was beyond exciting. Everything was pink, sparkly, and fabulous. Ready to find out more? Here is a mini haul and review of the items.

five minute face feat. drugstore + high end products

There is nothing better than the luxury of time. Those moments when your schedule is clear and you have a significant portion of the day to do whatever you want. Sometimes, I spend moments like that writing or writing and other times, I spend moments like that creating a fabulous makeup look. Unfortunately, not all days allow for free time. In fact, most of them have been pretty full lately. So as much as I love spending as long as I want playing with my favourite beauty products...a quick five minute face is sometimes all that there is time for. Recently, I needed to pull together a makeup look that was quick, easy, and still a little glam. So I used some tried and true products and a small neutral palette that I hadn't reached for in a while. Ready to take a closer look at the items used? And see the results of that five minute face? Here is a super simple makeup look that included both drugstore and high end products.

Though certain pieces can contribute to a well rounded wardrobe... one particular area is often overlooked: shapewear. The items worn underneath all of those must have items are just as important. If not more so! Shapewear provides support and structure. It can create a streamlined look and boost confidence. When it comes to choosing shapewear, there are many different styles to consider.

my favourite fall palettes + current favourites video


Eyeshadow palettes always excite. Even a not-so-great palette is exciting to test and try. Though there are plenty of makeup must-haves and everyday essentials...eyeshadow is the fun stuff. It is like the sprinkles on top of a perfectly iced birthday cake! Over the years, I have tried many eyeshadow palettes. Some have been incredible and others totally fell flat. Thankfully, there have been more hits than misses. Especially when it comes to those warm, fall inspired colours. Now that the season is fully underway, it is time to shine a light on a few of my favourite fall palettes.
