Spring and Obsessions...

Hello!

So for the past three weeks, I have not posted anything.. and I will be honest, the reason why I have not posted anything is because I wanted to start making videos instead… I attempted to film a TMI video, but the lighting was bad, and my computer would not accept the video.. so that plan went down the drain :(

As I had gone three weeks without posting anything.. I decided to post something.. YAY! I simply want to talk about my recent obsessions and it will be kind of like a favourites video… but in writting.

So music wise, I have been listening to MIKA.. and if you do not know who Mika is.. well you should just go give him a listen. :P I used to replay his songs over and over again, and after a while.. I found myself drifting into a whole lot of different music genres.. when about a week ago, I was shocked to find out that he had an album that I did not even know about.. YIKES! So I decided to give "THE ORIGIN OF LOVE" a listen.. and actually really enjoyed most of the songs!!! Then I found myself listening to his old ones again.. like the classics and remembered why I enjoy his music. Mika just finds a way to make me happy.. and I know it sounds so cheesy or CLICHÉ of me but whenever I am feeling down I know that I can listen to "Grace Kelly," or "Lollipop," or "Blame it on the Girls,"… or even, "Stardust," and "Lola."

A new recent obsession I have is spring! *haha* The sun is finally coming out, the days are getting longer, I mean it is 7:15 pm and still bright out!!!!!! Finally old man winter is leaving! :D :D :D I am usually a fan of winter, but this winter has been so cold, that it is hard to find the guts to do anything… I mean we have probably had a whole months worth of -50 degrees… no word of a lie. It has been dreadful, but finally, the sun is coming out, the birds are chirping, and the style is well.. wonderful. I am loving the bright colors mixed with the neutrals, the old mixed with the new and the warm mixed with the cool! Everything is starting to be brighter! :D :D <3

Another recent obsession of mine is braids… I have been doing braids in my hair for about a week now and the reason why I love braids, is that they are so versatile, they go with everything.. like you can do halo braids, or do the crown wrap around braid thing, you can just do a simple braid right down the middle of your head, you can braid her bangs, braid your hair into a bun.. and the list goes on and on.. I have found myself braiding my hair as my go to look.. something that is easy and works wonders if you are having a CRAZY hair day! :D

A new makeup obsession of mine are the Revlon Colorburst Lip balm thingies.. haha I recently have been watching an endless list of YouTubers.. and a lot of them use those Revlon lip balms.. I was kind of a little skeptical about them at first, but I tried them.. and love them so much. I find that when I wear lipstick it sometimes just wears off really fast, or it leaves patches on my lips, and sometimes can go massively wrong… but these lip balms are life savers.. they are like the best of both worlds.. they are like lipsticks but have the lip balm feel.. PERFECT.

While I try to solve my camera and its memory card.. I am planning on organizing a video… and hopefully if my camera starts to work better, I will be able to do more videos… perhaps an empties video, a makeup tutorial, or even a HAUL!!!! :D :D Let us just hope that by Spring coming and bringing happy things.. hopefully it can bring along some good luck with my camera!! :P

What are your new obsessions?

Lots of Love

Casual Makeup Look

Hello!! :D

So yesterday I decided I would build up the courage to make a video *YAY ME!! * I decided to film a little makeup look for everyone to see! :D :D

After making the video I realised that my hair looked absolutely dreadful.. but decided whoever is watching is not supposed to care about what my hair looks like… so they can just bear it I think…

So here it is:



In case you missed the products I used in the video, here they are:

- Arbonne Makeup Primer
- Arbonne Perfecting Liquid Foundation with SPF 15, in the color soft blush
- Urban Decay Optical Blurring Brush
- Angled brush (I bought this in Shopper's Drug Mart, years ago, and believe it is in the brand QUO)
- Naked eye Palette…color Darkhorse for my eyebrows
- Naked eye Palette... color Sin for my eyelid
- Eyeshadow brush… to be honest I have no clue what type of brush this is, it has no brand on the brush so I have no idea what to tell you all… my friend had given to me a while back, and I have not bothered buying a new one… probably should…
- Naked eye Palette…color Naked for the outer V and crease.
- Urban Decay eyeshadow brush that comes with the Naked eye Palette...
- Naked eye Palette…color Virgin for my brow bone
- Rimmel London 003 Sun Queen Shimmering Bronzer
- Kabuki Brush *Winners*
- Revlon Lash curler (cheap from Shopper's Drug Mart)
- Flamed Out Covergirl mascara
- Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in 025 Peach Parfait

After watching the video… hope you like it.. you can comment, like, subscribe to my channel… or just replay it over and over again… whatever makes you all happy! :D :D

Lots of Love

Hello!! :D

So for the past week or so, I have been busy and have not had the time to keep this blog updated.. *slap on the hand for that* OOOPS!!! haha… so today, I am going to my little cousin's play, "Sleeping Beauty," and so I decided that I would show you all my makeup and hair for the day!!! :D :D Hope you enjoy!! :D

Makeup:
Elegant

1. Arbonne Makeup Primer
2. Benefit Erase Paste (Under eyes and on any blemishes)…I use the Sephora Collection Pro Airbrush #57...
3. Arbonne Perfecting Liquid Foundation with SPF 15, in Soft Blush…I use the Urban Decay Optical Blurring brush…
4. I then apply Carmex Lip Balm, to prep my lips for the lipstick at the very end...
5. Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer
6. Fill in my eyebrows with the Naked Eye Palette using the color, Darkhorse.
7. I use my Arbonne eyeshadow in Linen all over my eyelids, then I add the color Half Baked (Naked eye Palette) in the middle of my eyelid and the outer V I use the color Smog (Naked eye palette)..
8. I then applied eye liner (l'Oreal Linear Intense in Black) on my top lash line making a slight wing in the corners.
8. Curl lashes using my Revlon Lash Curler...
9. Use They're Real mascara by Benefit.
10. Bronzer to make my cheekbones stand out.. The Rimmel London 003 Sun Queen shimmering bronzer… using a Kabuki Brush… I also used my illuminating powder above my cheekbones...
11. Arbonne lipstick in Vintage Rose… and also applied an Arbonne lip polish in the color Venus...

Hair:
Low elegant bun…

After watching a +missglamorazzi hair video…(The link will be below) I have absolutely fallen in love with the last hair do she does.. the low bun.. and through inspiration, here it is:

1. The first thing I am going to do is spray some Organix Morroccan Arganoil spray in my hair.. just to make my hair look soft and shiny..
2. I am then going to curl the ends of my hair to add a little texture...
3. I then am going to leave out two strands *optional* of hair and make a low ponytail…
4. I am going to divide my ponytail into four sections (my hair is too thick to do three sections), and continue by wrapping each section of hair around the base of the ponytail all while pinning the hair close to my head…
5. All while following the wave of the two strands, I am going to pin one of them back, out of my face…
6. I am going to hairspray everything so it stays in place… and VOILÀ!!!
