What’s in my purse

IMG_1300Purse: J.Crew – Brown Leather
Wallet: Coach
Coin Purse: Coach
Makeup Bag: Chapters

Usually I carry a lot of things in my purse when I am going to work for just in case purpose. But this is my regular bag that I carry when I’m doing my usual errands, going out for coffee or meeting with a friend. I normally have my Kate Spade planner, this is my life. I’m the type of person that needs to write everything down, especially twice. I have the dates in my phone and my planner is for more detailed information, for example if I have to bring something with me or if it’s a more detailed note on something I gotta do.

I’m one of those people that has a separate coin purse because I take the public transportation so we have tokens that we need for the transportation thus it’s easier to pick out tokens from the coin purse then from the coin area on my wallet. My wallet, like I said up above is from Coach, it does it’s job of carrying my most essential cards and money.

My makeup/toiletries mini purse holds just the essentials of body spray, oil blotting paper, hand sanitizer, tampons,  and tylenol extra strength. Normally I’d have lip gloss as my only makeup item just to touch up on my lips but for this particular day I was going without any makeup on so I wasn’t carrying an makeup products with me.

Let me know what you carry in your purse, I’m nosy like that and I love “whats in my bag” posts for some strange reason.

BH Cosmetics Eye & Blush Palette Review

BH Special Occasion PaletteCan I just say how much I love BH cosmetics, such a reasonable price for amazing quality products. I’ve had the Special Occassion palette for about a month, and I’ve been wearing the eyeshadows almost everyday.

The Special Occassion palette has 39 eye shadows and 9 blush colours. Can I just say that these colours are just BEAUTIFUL. The palette contains beautiful browns, plum, purple, blue, silver and pink tones. The qualities of the shadows are just amazing, they go on perfectly, the lasting quality is about 8 hours. The blushes are just gorgeous colours, leave your skin looking flawless. The picture down below is of me wearing the blush colour combined with a highlighter. I can’t say anything but beautiful things about this palette. I think BH cosmetics is just amazing, and if you have the opportunity check out there website and try out a palette.

Top 3 Favourite Teas

IMG_1316

I don’t know about you but I absolutely love tea. I have tea for breakfast, tea for lunch even tea during dinner. There is something so calming about tea that you can’t resist making a cup and just getting comfortable on the couch. But I’m very specific about my teas and there are three particular tea’s that I found just work wonders for three particular reasons. Let me go through each tea and why I love to drink it.

IMG_1317Clipper Green Tea – this amazing green tea is something that I would have on a daily basis, it’s my go to tea. What’s amazing about green tea is that it has amazing benefits for you including boosting your metabolism, great for the mind, amazing antioxidants, and we know that antioxidants are important overall. This tea is so nice and light in flavour when you add a splash of  sweetener it just tastes amazing, even as cold tea. That’s the reason why I love Clipper’s green tea the lightness of the tea.

IMG_1314Pukka Love Tea – organic rose, chamomile and lavender the hints in this tea and I love to drink this tea when I have upset stomach which I get quite often. If you didn’t know I have celiac disease and I’ve been recently diagnosed in September 2014 and during my process of changing to a gluten-free diet I still get stomach issues here and there. Thus, when I get those upset stomach days I love to drink this tea. Chamomile is definitely something you want to drink to calm those stomach pains. Pukka not only sounds and look adorable but has amazing hints of all three the rose, chamomile, and lavender. Definitely recommend this tea.

IMG_1318Davids Tea Organic Super Ginger – what can I say about this tea other then that it’s definitely gingery. Is that even a word, I don’t know but who cares I’m claiming it as a word. This tea is absolutely amazing to drink when you have that measly cold or flu. Ginger is simply AMAZING to drink or just to consume when your sick. It helps to kill off the bacteria that has taken over your body.  I don’t drink this tea on a daily occasion but I do drink it when I get sick or if I feel a cold/flu is trying to sneak upon me. If you want the super ultimate fighting tea for colds then drink this tea.

  • Nominate 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers and link them.
  • Create 11 new questions.
  • Notify all nominees.

    1) What are your future plans for your blog?
    I hope that this blog becomes a place of conversation for people who enjoy beauty products just as much as I do and also where we can provide reviews on products and hopefully provide the makers ideas on what to improve in these products.

    2) If you could collaborate with one person or brand, who would it be?
    The one brand that I would absolutely love to collaborate with is Urban Decay. They just make amazing beauty products and they were really the reason I became in love with beauty and finally finding a way to be creative in my own sense. As someone who alway thought I had no creativity I really found makeup and beauty as a way to let out that creativity I had.

    3) What is your favourite make up item?
    My favourite makeup item is my Urban Decay NAKED palette. Beautiful neutral tone colours, easy to blend and work with. The shades are prefect for a daytime look that can be easily transformed into a night-time look.

    4) What’s on your wishlist this year?
    My wishlist item for this year would have to be the Zoeve beauty brushes, I’ve heard such amazing reviews on these brushes and I would love to amp up my beauty brushes and like any artist to be able to create amazing masterpieces you need to have amazing tools to go with it.

    5) If you could only shop in one shop forever, what would it be?
    Well that is an easy response, that would definitely be Sephora, it has everything you can think of beauty related.

    6) What’s your idea pamper night?
    My ideal pampering night, is getting into a tub of hot water with some lavender episome salt just to relax the muscles. Then once I am done I’d do a clay mask to clear the skin. Then I’d finish it off with painting my nails to start the next day amazingly.

    7)  Choose one: Beauty, Fashion and Lifestyle. Which one and why?
    Beauty would definitely be my choice. I love to get my day started by doing my makeup, feeling all dolled up just gets me started and ready to take the day on.

    8) Where’s your favourite place to blog?
    I’m not to sure what this mean’t but I’m going to guess where I love to blog from and thats usually from Starbucks, where I can get a nice cup of vanilla coffee enjoying the atmosphere of coffee making around me, it’s heavenly.

    9) Favourite movie?
    My favourite movie that I really enjoy watching would be The Notebook, I didn’t think a romance movie would be my favourite but I loved the book and the movie just as much. The passion, the acting and the story just makes me happy every time.

    10) Places to visit on your bucket list?
    Some of the top places I’d love to see are Australia, Spain, Aruba, Maldives, Bora Bora, and Iceland.

    11) Twitter or Instagram? Why?
    Because I am a visual person I’d say Instagram would be my preference. I love to see what pictures people post to feel like I’m there with the person enjoying that moment in their lives.

Wedding Inspiration

♥♥♥

 


blog2012-10_008kcmo

This year was a big year for both my fiancé and myself, because we got engaged on October 3, 2014. Now we are planning to do our wedding in 2 years to allows us with enough time to plan out carefully as opposed to rushing. But mainly we did it to enjoy the time we got being engaged because it will all be over before we know it. Or at least the party will be over not the marriage part.

But since I’ve gotten engaged I’ve been starting to look around for inspiration and ideas for what we would like for our big day. So here are some of my favourite ideas that I’ve been loving or want to incorporate for the wedding day.

Wedding Hairstyles

Wedding Inspiration 1

This is just the beginning process of my ideas that I’ve been loving so far. But I’d love to hear what all of you think and maybe suggest some blogs that I can follow for wedding day advice and ideas. I’ve been searching myself but I’m sure all of you have some as well.
