Why I Do Not Support Urban Decay Cosmetics

I remember when I first started getting into makeup. There weren’t nearly as many options, but this is one of the reasons that Urban Decay really shone. They were the go-to brand for eyeshadow primer as well as bright and colourful, high-quality shadows. At the time, I never thought too much about the way they …

The Problem with “Dupes”

With all the drama being stirred up at the moment because of the Kat Von D Shade and Light palette being “duped” by Makeup Revolution, I wanted to get my two cents in. While I use and enjoy a lot of Kat Von D products, I also use a lot of “dupes”. I am doing …

How to Afford Anything

While I haven’t always been the shining example of saving money, I have recently started getting my budget under control to saving up a bit for some nicer things that I have wanted for a while. The first thing in particular that I would like to get for myself is the Louis Vuitton Neverfull, as …

dear Klairs Mochi BB Cushion Review

A while back I made a purchase from Wishtrend to try out some new skincare. I am pleased to say that I have loved literally everything I purchased. While I made the order specifically for the skin care, I couldn’t not pick up a new cushion foundation. While I’m still loving my banila co and Clio cushions, …

Colourpop Haul & Swatch

I picked up some goodies from Colourpop not too long ago (and then half of it went on sale the next day… sigh…) and I wanted to do a little haul. Plus, I’ve got some strong opinions and all the swatches! I picked up the Puroland Mini Kit, which has five teeny tiny tubes in …

My Everyday Makeup

While I love playing with makeup and creating fun new looks, there just isn’t always time in the morning. This is my everyday makeup look that is not only classic looking, it’s fairly simple and still pretty versatile. All of the products that I use can be thrown into my Longchamp Pouchette so that I can …

Pursuing Your Dreams

For as long as I can remember I wanted to be a model. Maybe not quite, actually… first I wanted to be a pop-star-veterinarian-ballerina, but once I became somewhat realistic with what I wanted out of life. I was a chubby kid, though. And because of my ADD, I never stuck with anything for long …
