Are you going to IMATS Toronto!

4 more months to go : D

I can't believe IMATS is here again! Last year was so fun. I met a lot of beauty bloggers & got some great deals. I was also introduced to some new companies which are now worked into my everyday routine.

This year IMATS is held November 6&7 at Toronto Congress Centre. I looked at the venue and it's HUGE.

Currently tickets are available but I'm not sure what day to go :| Probably Saturday because it's fresh. Are you going?

OOTD: Animal Print :)

I have an confession.. I love animal print... Mostly leopard print. The funniest thing is that I can never buy it! It`s always never in my size or sold out...

I told myself when the perfect opportunity comes along .. GET IT! and I did for $5.00 from H&M in their sale section : D

It goes with the whole neutral obsession I have going on right now. I paired it with a pair dark blue skinny jean, neutral waist belt & layer chain.

I love this look!
Easy, effortless but chic!

Do you like Animal print?

I'm off to Cuba!

Yup you heard me right vaca number #3 for the year. I'm grateful & uber blessed that I get the opportunity to do them. Also I'm very happy that my bf is coming along. This is our first time taking the plane together & being on vaca for 8 days straight...MADNESS.

Great Dollar Store Finds for your MUA Kit!

Hi Girlies,

I often get questions about what`s in my kit. Currently my kit needs to be refined & rebuild! In this past year I`ve come across some amazing new brands which have some must have items.

Due to the size of some of these items, they can`t be put into a traincase comfortably. During one of my many random dollarama trips, I found these great heavy duty bottles!

Aren`t they so fashionable :) I made sure I didn`t get the same colors, so I didn`t have to label them.

So far I have (depotted):
Hand sanitizer
Brush Cleaner (90% alcohol)

I love these bottle because I know they can take a beating LOL. I`m not going to abuse them but it`s good to know that all your product is safe inside your traincase.

Andrea Face Spa: Revitalizing Peel-off Masque Review

I won an Andrea Lashes twitter contest recently! Woo :) They sent me a whole bunch of Face Spa Masques to try out.

The first one I tried was the Andrea Face Spa Revitalizing Peel-off Masque. This masque contains glycolic acid which is an ingredient often used in chemical peels.

The package contains a good amount of powder which you mix with water to get a thick consistency.

I never knew how much water to really use. The package stated a few teaspoons but I used more than that to get the perfect consistency. In the picture I wasn`t finished stirring... I just wanted to show what it looked like when water was added :)

I would recommending stirring with a stick or spoon, so you have something to smear the product on your face with. Leave it on your face for 15 minutes.

I had to take a picture with it on..haha! I loved what it looked like once it dried. It reminded me of liquid latex.
I took my time peeling off each piece of the masque. Some parts which didn`t have a lot of product like around my eyebrows & hair line didn`t peel off so easily. First I wet it with a washcloth, then washed it off when it became soft.

Here is a picture of a piece of the masque which I peeled off :D

I`m pleased with this masque. My face felt so smooth after using it. This is a definate future purchase :)

June Favorites!

1. E.L.F Daily Brush Cleaner: Daily Brush cleaner is great to use if you don`t have time to clean your brushes everyday! Once you finish using your brush, squirt some cleaner on a towel or tissue and wipe away. Here is a tutorial using the brush cleaner.

2. Coppertone Oil free Face sunscreen: I use sunscreen everyday! Perfect consistency and texture. Who cares what kind tone you have this is essential. Skin damage can cause damage, wrinkle or cancer... I don`t want ANY of those.

3. Palmers Cocoa Butter: This has been a staple in my life for years. I always try other products but I always come back to my good old cocoa butter lol

4. Annabelle Make up Wipes for eyes: I wear several coats of mascara & this product works the best to get it off. plus it fits perfect in a purse or make-up bag!

Have you tried any of my favorites?

My Birthday Look & Outfit + Contest Winner

Yup I am now one year older. I still look so damn young! OMG!! Just looking at this picture If I told you girls that I was 18 or would believe LOL

It was a super low key birthday. Just some dinner & Shopping : D

The day before was super fun! My BF and I went to USA with other couple on a day trip. I got some good shopping deals..which I'll save for another post..

Lets start with the outfit:
Dress from Suzy Shier which I got 40% off at the Annabelle & Suzy Shier shopping event! It cost me around $15.00. I love the print & frills.
Belt $1.00 from Stitches
Necklace $2.00 from Ardene

Now on to the face & contest winner! I wanted something which was fun but simple. It had to be a look which was appropriate for day & night because there was no down time in the day.

So the winner is Jill-O. Email me your address please.

    Happy Birthday!
    You should wear whatever you heart desires! But I would suggest a fun colourful summer look, maybe some bright pink or fushia lipstick and cheeks with a bold cat eyeliner a funky colour to complement (like electric blue or bright green).

Annabelle Smudgeliner in Smokey Blue on top & lower lids
Annabelle Mascara in black

Annabelle Volume Lip in Cherryoke

It was just a coincidence that I ended up using all Annabelle products! HAHA but they work together so why not!

I`ll glad you girls are loving the giveaways! I`ve got a few in the works! I`m thinking about doing an Annabelle one because a lot of girls have told me you want to try some but you can`t get them in your country.

Thanks for reading!!
