J-Crew Haul ft. The Oh So Famous Pixie Pants!

 Hey everyone!
A few weeks ago I went in to J-Crew just to browse around and ended up purchasing a few items.  J-Crew has become my most recent obsession; I can always find so many things that I love there and am constantly looking through the website. Today I thought I would share with you the items that I purchased.  I'm going to let you all know right now that I took these pictures at night when my lighting was really bad, so the photo quality is not that great...actually, it's pretty bad. haha! ;)

Benefit Bella Bamba Blush: Review + Swatches!

Last month on a shopping trip to Sephora, I had the opportunity to receive a sample of Benefit Bella Bamba blush as a 100 pt. perk.  I had been lusting over this particular blush for months after swatching it in store, but could not fathom spending $36 on it.  So, I was thrilled at the chance to receive and test out a sample size.  I can now safely say that when this generous sample runs out, I will be returning to Sephora to buy a full size.

IMATS Tag!!!


Hey everyone,
I'm super excited because this year I will be attending IMATS (International Makeup Artist Trade Show) for the first time ever thanks to my lovely friend and fellow blogger, Lacey.  While doing a little research on IMATS, I came across this tag so let's get started!

My Fave First Day Back To School Hairstyles!

Hi guys, long time no talk! 
After the popularity that my 'prom updos' post got, I decided that I would continue this series with my favourite hair styles for the first day back to school. I'm a little late writing this post as a few of you have probably already started school, but these hair styles can definitely be worn throughout the school year as well!  I hope you enjoy!

Bachelorette Style Guide: Emily Maynard!

Hey everyone,
If any of you have been keeping up with The Bachelorette, you will know that the last bachelorette was the gorgeous Emily Maynard.  Her season finished a few weeks ago, and personally, I'm really happy about her choosing Jef (with one f)!   While watching the season, I developed a love for Emily's style.  It was very girly yet laid back with a little country twist here and there.  This season, Emily seemed to favour feminine dresses, super high heels, scarves and of course, lots of sparkle!  As well as, boots, blazers and the occasional leather jacket.  So, today I wanted to share with you a few Emily inspired outfits I put together from various episodes...enjoy!

NOTD: OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender

Hey everyone,
Today's NOTD is a long time favourite of mine, OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender.  This comes from the Hong Kong 2010 collection, and is actually more of a lilac colour rather than lavender.  Lucky Lucky Lavender is a creme finish with absolutely no shimmer, and is opaque in 2-3 coats.
You can definitely get away with only applying 2 coats, however, this varnish tends to be really streaky, so I like to apply 3 for maximum opacity.  

Would you wear it?

Back To School: Locker Organization & Tips!


Hey everyone,
A locker is a little piece of the school that belongs to you for the year, your little home away from home, so you should take advantage of that and transform it from bare and boring to beautiful.  Your locker, once decorated, should make you feel happy upon opening it, and be a reflection of the kind of person you are.  Now that it's August I'm going to be posting some back to school tips throughout the month and doing an updated 'what's in my school bag' post.  So if anyone has any requests, let me know below!

July Favourites 2012 ♥

Hey everyone,
Well, it's that time of month again...time for my monthly favourites post!  I cannot believe how fast the month of July flew by.  It was a pretty great month, of course, seeing as I didn't have to deal with exams and all the stresses of school. However, it did fly by, which is pretty unfortunate.   I've been savoring each month as it comes, and although I'm kind of excited to begin my last year of high school, I just don't want summer to end.  This month I discovered a few new beauty, accessory, drink and song favourites, so I'm just going to jump right into everything...
