Hello friends! Happy Monday! Today I want to mention a product that I reach for whenever I’m getting ready in a hurry–which is most mornings! The L’Oreal Visible Lift Blur Blushes are a gel formula that gives your cheeks a super natural flushed look.
I have the shade Soft Berry which is bright pink when blended out, but there’s also Soft Pink which is a natural pink and Soft Peach which is the most sheer option. I like to squeeze out a small amount and pat it on with my fingers. Keep in mind that this does set pretty quickly so don’t take too long blending! This shade looks like a natural “just in from the cold” flush and lasts all day long. The only downside is that they are pricey at about $15 where I live so definitely wait for a sale.
These are not usually products that I would try but I’m so glad that I did. Let me know if you’re planning on trying them! Have a great week!
Hi everyone! It is officially time to start breaking out the sweaters and cozy scarfs since the weather is getting chilly. Today I thought I’d share with you a makeup look that I wore the other day that featured a bunch of my favourite tones for this time of year! More info on all the products is at the end!
I love the look of bronzy eyeshadows and the L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Amber Rush is incredible. For a quick look on busy days I’ll throw a medium brown in the crease and apply this gorgeous rose gold shade on my lids. I have combination/oily skin which gets more dry around this time of year so I like to add a more glowy highlight. The illuminator in Flush from the Grand Palais palette by Too Faced gives a lovely champagne/gold glow. Most of the time I like to wear red and berry tones, but I figured I’d change it up a bit and go for a more muted deep nude. Mac’s lip pencil in Whirl is a gorgeous shade–these are super pricey though and I’m actually not a huge fan of the formula. I’d recommend the Exaggerate Lip Liners by Rimmel over these.
What kind of makeup have you been wearing lately? All the info on the products I’ve used is down below! Thank you all so much for stopping by and have a great day!

I hope you’ve all had a spooky Halloween! It’s been a crazy busy month for me but I’m finally caught up with school work so I figured I’d share with you all some of the decorations I had up for fall and Halloween. These are super easy and they work great for really small spaces!
I didn’t really like many of the fall decorations I was finding so I figured that I would just pick up some fake leaves and make my own. I got a few that had little wire stems that I twisted together to make sets of three and I also got some tiny loose leaves that I glued to some twine. I put these up all around my room and on my door and they looked super cute! I don’t really have the patience to carve pumpkins so I bought a mini one at a grocery store and took a black sharpie and drew on a jack-o-lantern face. If you want to get more crafty and creative with pumpkins, I’d recommend using fake ones so that you can re-use them. That’ll save you a ton of money and effort!
What kind of decorations did you have for the spooky season? I’m always looking for new ideas! Now on to Christmas decor! Thank you all so much for stopping by!

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you’ve all been doing well and that you had a great weekend! Since the new school year has started, many of us are on the go a lot so it’s important to make sure that you have all of the personal care items you’ll need with you.
I find it easiest to keep everything I know I’ll need in this little makeup bag from Sephora. This way, if you want to switch out your purse, all you have to do is grab this bag and you won’t have to worry about forgetting anything. I always recommend keeping bandaids and hand sanitizer with you. I get blisters all the time and have finally learned that it’s best to just always have several bandaids with you. And hand sanitizer is just a necessity for when you’re on the go–once you start carrying it you’ll be surprised at how often it comes in handy!
Since I usually end up leaving in a rush, I like to keep some products for the finishing touches of my routine. White eyeliner is my go-to for looking well rested so I always keep one with me for touch ups. I also often end up throwing whatever lipstick I’ll wear that day in here, so I keep this universal lipliner since it will keep any shade of lipstick from feathering outside the lines.
As I mentioned, I’ll change out my lip product everyday, but the only lippies that I consistently take with me are my Burts Bees lip balm and a Toyshop Sheer Lip in Applause. For more natural days, this lipstick gives a super nice pink colour that wakes up the face. Any nice tinted lip balm will do the trick! Lastly I keep some Duo Lash Glue since you never know when the inner corner of your lashes are gonna start popping off!
What do you keep in your on-the-go makeup bag? Thank you all so much for stopping by and I’ll see you soon!

Hello everyone! What’s more Christmassy than baking cookies? I have a ton of memories from when I was little making these cookies with my mom and sister. They’re super easy and absolutely delicious. Makes about 3 dozen.
You will need:
-2 2/3 cups all purpose flour
-1 teaspoon baking powder
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-1 cup unsalted butter (softened)
-3/4 cup sugar
-3 large egg yolks
-2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Start off by taking a medium bowl and whisking flour, baking powder and salt until they’re blended. Then with an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar in a large bowl until the mixture is light and fluffy. Mix in the egg yolks and vanilla and then stir in the flour mixture. I would suggest using your hands to quickly make sure it’s all nice and mixed at the very end before we move on.
Divide the dough into four equal portions and flatten then wrap them and chill until firm. I left it to chill for about 45 minutes to an hour. (I’d recommend watching a Christmas movie while waiting for the dough to chill!)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line your baking sheets with parchment paper. Roll out one part of the dough onto a floured surface to about 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out the cookies with your favourite holiday shapes. Gather the rest of the dough, reroll and cut out more cookies and transfer to baking sheets. Decorate the cookies however you want with sprinkles or even food colouring. Bake until golden brown at the edges, for about 12 minutes. Repeat with all the other sections of dough and you’re done!
These are super easy to make and are really great to do with young kids because who doesn’t love adding sprinkles and decorating! What’s your favourite cookie recipe? Thanks so much for stopping by!
