Easy Halloween Nails + Giveaway!

Once upon a time, I loved doing my nails. I used to paint them every week and do the whole design bit.... and then I had a child. Now I never have time to do my nails and I'm stuck to just getting them done every once in a while. However, when Nail Polish Canada got in contact with me and sent me the Whats Up Nails Graveyard Nail Vinyls*, I finally had the chance (and motivation to do my nails).

Keeping Your Sun-Kissed Glow After Summer

Keeping Your Sun-Kissed Glow After Summer With Melanie Mills Hollywood Body Radiance
One of the most saddest things about the seasons changing is losing your sun-kissed glow and the colour that only the summer sun can give your skin. I especially hate seeing the tan-ness of my legs starting to disappear. I much prefer when there's a bit of colour to my legs. I know a lot of people like to cheat the system and go to tanning beds, but to my understanding, those are extremely bad for your skin/health. The easiest way (and safest way) to get around it, in my opinion, would be self-tanners and tinted body creams.

The Only Lipsticks I'll Be Rocking This Season + Mini Haul

The Only Lipsticks I'll Be Rocking This Season + Mini Haul | ft. NUDESTIX & MAC
So.. I did the unthinkable. After an hour of sorting through my stash and swatching my whole left arm, I actually down-sized my lipstick collection! It was definitely an impulse move on my part. One day I was scrolling through Instagram and a moment of realization just hit me out of no where - why in the f*ck do I have so many lipsticks?! I mean I only rotate a few, so why let the unfortunate few waste away in my drawers? It was hard and I got rid of a lot - and I'm taking high end, drugstore and a TON of MAC *sobs*. The ladies in my family were definitely feasting on more than just turkey this past Thanksgiving weekend!

Transitional Foundation Picks | Autumn Edit

Transitional Foundation Picks | Autumn Edit ft. The Ordinary, Too Faced, Nars
There was a time, not too long ago, when I would love a foundation so much, then out of the blue, it would just stop working in my favour. I had no idea why until one day I realized it was due to the change of weather. Just like how you need to switch up your skincare routine with the seasons, the same thing goes for foundation.
