FALL/WINTER perfumes

Happy Tuesday!

I hope everyone is having a positive start to their week! For all your Fall enthusiasts who want to smell like Fall from a bottle, keep reading…just kidding…well sort of. As mentioned in a previous post, I’ve worked in the cosmetic industry for quite a few years and I’ve had the privilege to experiment with more perfumes than I can ever try to count. Keeping that in mind, I am extremely picky with perfumes as I do not like when they are too overpowering. It’s all about finding the right scent for you, that makes you feel confident and acts as an extension to your personality. It is for this reason that some prefer to have one global scent, whereas others (like myself) prefer to have a few to go back-and-forth between depending on how they are feel that day and what they are doing.

Top self-tanners

Hello lovelies,

Since summer is approaching, or has already arrived (at least it feels like it in Montreal), I thought I’d share my top favourite self-tanners. There has been so much hype around tanning products the past few years and I have definitely put a share of them to the test. Personally, I try not to sit in the sun for long periods of time to protect my skin, so unless I want to look transparent in a cute summer dress, I need the help of self-tanners.

My go-to Summer nail shades

Happy Saturday!

I’m writing a quick post today, inspired by this beautiful weather we’ve been having in Montreal lately, on my favourite nail polish colours for summer. Most of these have been part of my go-tos for at least the past two summers. I am obsessed with neutrals, taupes and dark burgundy (or Oxblood as some say), no matter the season. I have also taken baby steps to broaden my horizon and occasionally wear mints and corals- but they cannot be too pinky. I usually opt for the brights on my toes but if I’m feeling extra summery I may step out of my comfort zone and go for it on my hands as well.

My skincare: Cleansing & Toning

Happy Monday everyone!

Unfortunately for me it has been a long weekend of feeling under the weather…hope yours was more fun and eventful! I have recently shared with you a random collection of my favourite go-to products, so I thought that today I would extend on that a bit and write about my current skincare routine. This turned in to a crazy long blogpost so I am breaking it down in to three parts: cleansing and toning, serums and creams, and lastly exfoliation and masks. For the most part, these are products that I have been using for quite a while, and despite veering off from time to time to try out new products, I often find myself coming back to them. This is most likely going to be a very long post, so grab a snack and maybe a notebook?

Current go-to beauty essentials

Good morning everyone!

Here we go with my first official blog post!!

I have always been the type of girl who keeps specific go-to products in my purse or sitting on the counter in my bathroom. There is just some kind of comfort in products that you know work for you and make you feel relaxed and pampered, even during hectic days. Although these products change from time to time, I wanted to share a few that I have been loving for a while (some even years!), and let you know why I think they are worth re-purchasing time and time again.
