EXPERIENCE | Miraj Hammam Spa by Caudalie The Cocoon Body Wrap

Cocoon body wrap was complimentary in exchange for my honest review.

I never would have thought to find myself back in Toronto after my last visit in August of last year because it really is quite a journey from Vancouver though we all talk about the trek like it's just a trip to the grocery store. Many of you know that I was in #The6ix for GenBeauty and lemme tell ya, I booked that flight so fast and spontaneously that I felt like a crazy person. I DON'T like to fly, but the thought of meeting so many of my favourite Toronto bloggers and PR peeps was enough for me to haul my Vancouver ass out there!

NAILS | Dior Vernis Polka Dots Manicure Kits in #001 Pastilles and #002 Confettis #ManiMonday

Post contains affiliate links.

When I saw the Dior Polka Dots Colour & Dots Manicure Kits* ($38.00 CDN) in the Summer Milky Dots Collection, I thought, "Hallelujah!" I have always believed that polka dots dress up ANY manicure and it was one of the first nail art techniques I ever attempted. These new manicure kits come in three different nail colour duos containing the classiest-looking mini dotting tool I have ever seen! Today, I will show two of these kits which I have used to create today's spicy-lookin' dotticure!



NAILS | BCD NAIL ART CHALLENGE WEEK 11 - The Blue Skittlette #BCDNAILS

This week's BCD Nail Art Challenge was a bit of a well, challenge for me as skittle nails are not my forte. Skittle essentially refers to the having a different nail design on each nail, but with a unifying colour scheme or theme. I am SO NOT GOOD AT THIS, but seeing as how the new OPI Alice Through the Looking Glass collection was out, I thought I'd try to cook something up with a few of the new shades!

MAKEUP LOOK | Colourful Smoky Eye with Avon mark. On The Dot Matte Eye Color Compact Review & Swatches

I don't know how you guys feel about Avon, but lemme tell ya, it has definitely changed since I was a little girl. With the introduction of Avon's mark. line, I have definitely been paying a lot more attention to Avon because there are a TON of cute makeup products, accessories and shoes (I have two pairs and a bag)! Makeup will be the theme for today though as I recently received the On The Dot Matte Eye Color Compact ($18.00 CDN) to try. Matte shadows are next to impossible for me to decipher at times. If there is no glitter I'm totally lost. It's like I have a derivative of colour blindness, but with glitter.

MAKEUP | MAC Studio Waterweight SPF 30 Foundation Review with Swatches of NC 20, NW 22, NW 45, NC 35 & NC 37

Affiliate links present.

Last year in July, I attended a MAC Cosmetics preview showcasing some pretty amazing products for the Fall season one of which was the MAC Studio Waterweight SPF 30 Foundation ($40.00 CDN). Last year was all about serum-like foundations that were so light that only a dropper was needed to deliver the product. When I tried the prototype of this foundation on my hand, I was floored and could not wait until its release!



SKINCARE | The Face Shop Bebe Lip Mask Review

Sheet masks are jam. The 80 sheet masks that I have in my possession are prime examples of my weakness so when I see masks for other parts of the body, my skincare antennae go crazy! I am a sucker for eye masks, gel masks for sore legs and of course the lip mask. I don't use lip masks often because lip balm is usually more than enough, but who can resist this cherubic little girl on the package of The Face Mask's Bebe Lip Mask ($3.00 CDN)?! Look at her pouty, full lips! I want those lips!
