Benefit Cosmetics Precisely, My Brow Pencil Ultra Fine Shape & Define

Ombrelle Face Stick 

I went on vacation in October and your girl is pretty white/pasty so she needs her SPF (but real talks, we ALL need our SPF. Protect yourself!) I found this face stick and it works wonders, since normal we put the cream on your face but as soon as you sweat or go in the water it goes straight into your eyes. With this stick, that does not happen. Only thing is because it is a stick you really got to put it on so you dont get random lines across your face.  I got this at Walmart for $16.00.

Benefit Cosmetics Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation

I had a wedding in October and decided to get my makeup done at Sephora in Barrie (because that’s where the wedding was taking place) and absolutely loved my makeup artists and loved the products she used on me. I don’t like having a lot of makeup on my face because 1. I don’t like the feeling of it and 2. I hate hiding my freckles (yay UK background). I told the stylist this and she nailed it. This foundation was the best anyone has used on me to this day. It didn’t feel like I had anything on and I could still see my freckles. You can get this at Sephora for $40.00.

Aveda Hand Relief Moisturizing Creme

When it comes to Aveda I love anything that’s the ‘Shampure’ smell (it’s the typical Aveda smell if you know what that smells like) so I love this hand creme in the shampure scent. It also comes in a cherry almond scent that I love. You can get this at Aveda stores or salons for $34.00

Aveda Dry Remedy Daily Moisturizing Oil

DRY HAIR! Do I have your attention? This Aveda oil works well out of all oils because it actually goes into the hair strand rather then sitting on top and making you think it’s working. This bottle will last you a while as with every Aveda product, a little goes a long way. You can put this in wet or dry hair before blow drying or after or just to refresh your ends on non-wash days. You can get these at Aveda stores and salons for $41.00

Body Favourite: 

NEWTPGN

I needed a new winter jacket because thanks to my dog who ate my old one. So naturally I fell inlove with the most expenive jacket. (LOL) I got this one at Sports Chek for $399.99 but it was worth every penny.

Structube Shari White Dining Table
My boyfriend and I finally got a bigger place that allows us to have an actualy dining table so I found this one and absolutely love it. I actually got a noise complaint putting it together because I was so excited for my new purchase. I’ve fallen in love with this store because they have better quality products then Ikea but you’re not breaking the bank for it (don’t get me wrong they do have expensive things but you can find good ones for cheaper here too.) This cost me $299 at Structube.

Sephora Makeup Brushes

When I was in hair school I needed makeup brushes because we always put finishing touches on clients but they wanted us to use q-tips for everything to keep things clean/sanitary. My sister ended up getting me a set similar to things and now that I’m done hair school I just use them for myself and I love them. I don’t use that much makeup so this is something basic and works perfectly. You get this sets from almost anywhere but I got these at Sephora for roughly $60.00.

Skin Favourite: 

whiteQuo Rose quartz facial roller

You use the large end on your cheeks, forehead and jawline and the smaller for under eye and chin area. You can get this at Shoppers Drug Mart for $25.00.

Walmart Canadiana Comforter

I needed a new comforter but didn’t want something that couldn’t be washes because I have a dog. So it needed to be cheap enough that I wouldn’t mind it getting ruined over time, needs to be machine washable and it needs to be cheap-ish. So I went to Walmart and my boyfriend actually picked this one out and I didn’t mind it. It matches our current sheets so it works and it was only $90.

Aveda Phomollient Styling Foam

This is Aveda’s version of mouse, it gives “weightless body and volume on fine to medium hair.” It works well for someone who wants hold but a gel is too heavy for their hair so you can use a foam!

Ikea Silveran Mirror Cabine – White

My boyfriend and I needed more space and storage in our bathroom so we decided to go to Ikea since I had a gift card for there. I had an idea in mind which ones I wanted to look at but I needed to see them in person, there was another one but it was too big so we got this one. As in usual Ikea fashion it was a pain in the ass to put together, it literally took two people. Once we got it up and functioning it was great! The white takes away from all the brown in my bathroom and makes it look clean! You can get this at Ikea for $79.99.

CLR Bath and Kitchen Cleaner

When this first came out I wasn’t a believer what so ever but we recently did a mini mirror upgrade on our bathroom to get things off the counter, we ended up having some rust on the counter from metal getting wet. I let the CLR soak for 5 mins and rub off about 3 times and it was complete gone. I was so impressed because the rust stain would have drove me crazy. You get can get this at Walmart and other stores for $9.00.

Sephora Eye Lash Curler

As I wrote before I comb my lashes before curling them, I curl them with a simple eye lash curler from the Sephora Brand. There’s not much to say about a eye lash curler, it does it’s job and it’s not that bad of the price at $19.00.

Pramasana Scalp Care

Once again Aveda products are my favourite when it comes to hair care, and to have the best hair care you have to have a healthy scalp. Pramasana is a 3 step at home scalp treatment. Step 1. Exfoliating Scalp Brush, work around in circles on your scalp which helps remove build up. Step 2. Purifying Scalp Cleanser, you can use on dry or wet hair, use like you would shampoo all over the scalp, rinse, shampoo with regular shampoo, condition. This helps cleanse and exfoliates to help balance sebum. Step 3. Protective Scalp Concentrate helps balances sebum levels and helps protect the scalp. After coming out of the shower part clean hair and use dropper, cover head with small drops and massage in. This product helps HUGE when it comes to all scalp issues, unfortunately it doesn’t come cheap, Step 1 is $30, step 2 is $45 and step 3 is $57. If you can’t afford them all separability Aveda salons will have the treatment that they can do for you for roughly $30.

Body Care:

Cool Shower Water

Believe it or not in Canada when it gets super cold everything gets dry; hair, lips, eyes and our skin. I don’t know about other ladies but I myself loves a good hot shower but that doesn’t sit well with my skin. I constantly have to remind myself to not have a boiling hot shower even though it feels good at the moment, I know it will dry my skin out and cool shower water will help that.

Aveda Speed of Light Blow Dry Accelerator

This is new to Aveda and we’re obsessed. Speed of Light is a detangler, heat protector, reduces breakage and it blow dries your hair faster. Now if you have fine hair your hair will dry fast already and if you have a lot (I’m talking log size pony tail) it will take awhile to dry your hair. You can get this at Aveda salons and stores for $42.
