NOTD: Speckled Robin's Eggs

Hey everyone,
The manicure I'm sporting today is a variation of one I saw on a favourite beauty blog of mine!  The Speckled Robin's Egg mani is probably the simplest manicure ever, but I absolutely love it!  I used 2 coats of Essie Turquoise and Caicos and 1 coat of Sephora's gold glitter top coat.  The result was this beautiful bright nail that is right on trend for this summer and looks like a Robin egg (but with glamorous gold speckles, instead of brown)!

What's your favourite bright nail colour?

MAC Gently Off Eye and Lip Makeup Remover: Review & Demo!

Hey Everyone,
I bought the Gently Off Eye and Lip Makeup Remover (Retailing for $23 CND for 3.4 oz) a couple weeks ago after I ran out of my Sephora eye makeup remover.  MAC describes this product as: "Oil and water do mix, for twice the impact – just shake. A dual-phase, easy-does-it formula that sweeps off even tenacious waterproof mascara and lip colour. Absolutely gentle; suitable for all. Cucumber extract soothes, Damascus Rose flower water refreshes. No need to rinse".

Healthy Living: Workout Playlist June 2012

 Hey everyone,
A few weeks ago I really got back into jogging and exercising on a daily basis, so I spent a few hours coming up with my perfect workout playlist.  I like to look for music with a really good beat, something that will keep me feeling motivated and energized while I exercise.  So today I thought I would share this playlist with all of you! I specifically love to use this playlist for running...

MAC Cultured Lipglass: Review & Swatches!

Hey Everyone,
Cultured, which retails for $14.50 US and $17.50 CND, is a beautiful opaque rose pink colour with tiny flecks of gold glitter.  The glitter is very subtle on the lips but adds a gorgeous sheen.  I purchased this shade in early May, and i will admit that it's actually my first MAC lip glass, and I'm very impressed with it and will definitely be going back for more! (Pink Lemonade...I have my eye on you)!

MAC Hey, Sailor! To The Beach Body Oil in Man Rays: Review & Swatches!

Hey everyone,
Today, I'm reviewing a product I got from the MAC Hey, Sailor! collection.  The 'To The Beach Body Oil' in Man Rays is a super shimmery body oil which is meant to moisturize and add a beautiful sheen to the skin.   This formulation was actually first released with the To The Beach collection 2 years ago and has since been re promoted to be included in the Hey, Sailor! collection.  When I first saw this product at MAC I was convinced that it would be disastrous and leave me looking like I was about to head over to a rave, but I was pleasantly surprised by the results.

MAC 116 Blush Brush: Review!

Hey Everyone,
The MAC 116 blush brush retails for $32 US and $38.50 CND and was the first MAC brush I ever purchased a couple years ago.  The MAC 116 is a natural-haired, tapered, rounded blush brush and can be used for blush, highlighting, contouring and I even use it for pressed powder application!

How To: Remove Acrylic Nails At Home!

 Hey everyone,
Getting acrylic nails at a salon is pretty expensive and not something I do too often.  However, on the rare occasion that I do decide to get them done I can't for the life of me remember why I hate them so much.  For the first couple weeks they just look so much more clean and polished than the standard bright pink manicure I usually sport. But than that 2 week period passes by, my nails start to grow and the acrylics start to look a little haggard, and I suddenly remember why I hate them so much.  (For the record, I'll be sticking to french manicures from now on).  They can be a pain to remove, so today I'm going to show you a way to make removing acrylics a lot easier.
