American Eagle shearling jacket, H&M Mickey Mouse sweater, Urban Outfitters blue plaid shirt, Zara boots


Channeling everything that I loved about the nineties: plaid shirt wrapped around the waist, shearling jacket and leather boots. I’ll be honest; I couldn’t actually wear this outfit out. I walked out of my house and immediately changed back into my thick, heavy, warm winter jacket and bundled up like this. Toronto Winter, I despise you.

PINKY PARADISE HANA SPC BARBIE CIRCLE BLACK LENSES REVEW

by

Can you believe it’s been almost 2 years since my last circle lenses review? Well, I’m back again in reviewing these Hana SPC Barbie Circle Black lenses from Pinky Paradise. Here are the information of the lenses:
 
Diameter: 14.5mm
Water Content: 42%
Base Curve: 8.6mm
Life Span: 1 Year Disposal
Prescription: -0.00 ~ -10.00
Origin: South Korea
What inside: One pair of lenses and one Macaron lens case
Price: $25.90
 

First of all, though the colour of these lenses are very similar to my natural eye colour, they are very dramatic. The gradient is very nice but you will need to wear makeup with these lenses to make it more “dolly” and less “alien” looking. (I always wear false lashes with any circle lenses). With that being said, the enlarging effect of these lenses is amazing. The lenses also photograph really well and reflects nicely against both natural and artificial lights. My eyes look like they are glittering and not to mention that these lenses are extremely comfortable.
 

Overall, I like these lenses. If you’re looking for something that’s on the more natural side or for everyday use, then I’ll stay away from these lenses. However, if you are planning a special night, or have a party to attend or doing a photo shoot, then these lenses are perfect! Your eyes will definitely be glowing.

NO WINTER LASTS FOREVER

When it feels like -40 degrees outside, it’s hard to remember that no winter lasts forever. All I can do is to add some colour to remind of the warmer seasons. I actually layered up 3, not exaggerating, more sweaters before actually heading out today and I was still cold. On another note, I picked up these Mossimo boots recently from Target Canada during their liquidation sale. I can’t really express how sad/disappointed I am that they’ve decided to exit Canada. I am truly going to miss the Mossimo shoes, they have the best shoes!

WHY I LOVE THIS PRODUCT
It looks like Avon mark. is slowly entering the lip butter category with the release of these All Butter Now Lip Treat and boy, these are treats indeed! I have to say that Avon is definitely giving Revlon a run for their money. These are are infused with shea, cocoa and mango seed butters and come in 4 colors. I received Baby Me and Coraltini to try out.
 

Baby Me (Left) – This is a cool purple with gold shimmer in it that’s like a frosty lavender colour. This reminded me a lot of the Revlon Lip Butter in Gumdrop but with more shimmer in it. Though the colour is pigmented, I personally don’t like the shimmer. The formula of this one is not as moisturizing as the Revlon Lip Butter, which is a little disappointing. However, the product does glide nicely onto my lips and the colour is still beautiful.
 
Coraltini (Right) – This is an orange warm coral that’s such more pigmented than the Baby Me. It’s also more moisturizing, which I love! This colour, especially, is more slippery and and glossier than the Revlon Lip Butters. I guess different colours have different formula. This is not a colour I would wear everyday but it’s definitely one of those lippies that I’ll keep in my purse for those special occasions.
 
The mark. All Butter Now lip treats are available now through your Avon rep or online at Avon.ca for $12.00 CAD.

GET SMOOTH LEGS FOR VALENTINE’S DAY WITH GILLETTE VENUS SWIRL RAZOR

by

Mood [Freezing]
Currently Playing [None]


With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it’s just as important to have smooth legs as it is finding the perfect dress to wear for that night. Let’s face it…we can all get a little lazy with shaving our legs during the winter. So Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to pay a little extra attention to your legs. No matter what your plans are, the new Venus Swirl razor contours over curves for flawless skin so you can feel your best!
 

What sets the Venus Swirl apart?
-FLEXIBALL technology offers a totally unique movement, allowing the razor to move in multiple directions to navigate all of the tricky areas of a woman’s body (You can see my reflection in the flexiball! Haha!)
-Five Contour Blades cut hair at a lower cutting force, have thinner, finer edges – the thinnest in Gillette’s history – and individually adjust to your every curve
-Water activated MoistureGlide Serum surrounds the blades for an incredible glide
-A Microfine Comb guides hair to blades, capturing virtually every hair
 

So what do I think about this new razor?
I LOVE IT! Aside from the fact that it’s purple (one of my favorite colours) and has 5 blades (I cannot survive with anything less) but the Flexiball really allows the razor to easily navigate every part of my legs because it can move from side to side. It has no problem getting all the hair at the back of my calves and also near the ankle parts of my legs. I always find those parts to be the hardest to tackle.
 
Additionally, I love how it has the MoistureGlide Serum around the blade, which means no shaving cream required! My legs feel so smooth after each shave! But if you tend to lay our razors down flat on your tub or on a shelf, don’t lay it down with the blade facing down. I did that once and once the Serum dries, it sticks to the surface. Don’t worry, it’s easy to remove, but of course it gave me a scare when I found it “stuck” on my shelf.
 
It comes with two replaceable heads, which ensure at least 2 months of shaves. (I personally like to change blades every month if I’m using the razor on a regular basis). The Venus Swirl will be available on February 9th at Walmart in-store and online at Walmart.ca

TWO NEW THINGS THAT I’VE BEEN LOVING FROM L’OREAL PARIS

If your New Year’s Resolution was a shine-free face or voluminous hair…then allow me to introduce you to two new products coming out this year from L’Oreal Paris: Infallible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray and Studio Line #TXT Volume Supersizing Spray. Both items are new to the L’Oreal Paris line and are available now in mass retailer stores.
 

L’Oreal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray
I have always been a huge promoter of Setting Sprays as the final step of any makeup routine. I have previously, and up to a month ago, sworn by the setting spray by Urban Decay. However, that all changed when I was introduced to this little setting spray by L’Oreal Paris. This spray pretty much seals in your look and further bullet proof any shine-free look. It sprays with an ultra-fine mist, which I like more than the Urban Decay one. It does everything that it promises: no melting, fading or touch-ups necessary! Aside from being oil-free, it’s price is half of the Urban Decay one! (SRP $16.99 CAD)

L’Oreal Paris Studio Line #TXT Volume Supersizing Spray
With texturising micro-powders this product creates bouffant back-combed volume from root to tip. I find that because my hair is so fine, spraying it directly on my roots first and then work towards the ends of my hair. Then, as silly as it sounds, I would shake and do a back-flip with my hair and then my hair will have instant volume. I love how fine and easy to control the spray is. It leaves my hair sensationally texturised and volumised, with an irresistible matt finish. My hair doesn’t feel heavy or stiff but it is not easy to brush through.

The only downside of this product is that the volume doesn’t last all day. I would say my hair stayed “big” and “super-sized” for around 4 hours. I naturally have really flat and straight hair, thus, this doesn’t really come as a surprise to me. For those of you born with natural waves or curls, this product might last longer for you. (SRP $7.99 CAD)

Mint Mohair Cardigan from Lookbook Store, H&M Nirvana T-shirt, Forever 21 denim shorts, EMU Australia boots
 
Staying cozy and chic is super easy with this mint cardigan from Lookbook Store. The fact that it’s made out of mohair fabric makes it extra warm and extra fluffy for those frigid winter days. The loose-fit and open-front also makes it possible to layer one top of your favourite t-shirt or sweatshirt. Being stretchable and unlined, it’s effortless to wrap around your waist for a 90’s grunge feel.
