New Essence Lippies!

Last week my sister and I went to a different Shoppers than the one we usually go to and their Essence rack was all stocked up, so we decided to pick up a couple lipsticks and lipliners! IMG_5992

I Am Yours is a beautiful reddish pink shade.

Natural Beauty is a mauve-y pink, or a MLBB (my lips but better) shade, perfect for everyday wear.

Satin Mauve is a matt, brownish mauve.. kind of like Kylie Jenner’s signature lip!

In the Nude is your classic nude (which unfortunetly doesn’t suit my skin tone) and is also matt.

ELF Eyelash Curler

IMG_5773

Having not so curly lashes, my eyelash curler is something I’ve loved since 7th grade.. Even my fish seems to love it!

This bad boy is E.L.F Mechnical Eyelash Curler which I picked up from Dollar Tree when I was in the States.

First off, let’s just talk about how beautiful it looks in the colour white. *takes a moment of silence because holyyy*

Anyways, I’ve been using this to curl my lashes for a quite a while now, and it works perfectly. It also lasts a long time, but sometimes the padding might tear in the middle if you use too much pressure (just sometimes).

My lashes also stay curled for a very good amount of time when I use this eyelash curler, so I really like it ❤

It’s also a very affordable product, so check it out if you have the chance because I’m sure this is something you’ll love! 🙂

How I Made My “Beach Theme” Room, Beach Themed☀️🌊

IMG_4889 With summer on its way, I thought it was time to give my room a little twist. Since my room already had the colour scheme (blue, white & grey), I decided to go beach theme!

In this post, I’ll be sharing a few things I’ve added to my room to go with the theme.

IMG_5875 First off, I got myself a pet fish. I couldn’t keep a beach theme room and not buy myself a goldfish! And the bright rocks just make it ten times more awesome!
IMG_5880Next it wall decor. I got this 3 piece set from Home Sense.
IMG_5893This little guy was something I had long before this bedroom, so I had to keep him out on my bed. And the best part is that my comforter has a texture that makes it looks like the sea, the perfect place to keep Nemo.
IMG_5882 The most embarrassing thing in my room: my anchor. I don’t know what I was thinking when I made this, but I still keep it out on my dresser.
IMG_5899 Lastly is my beach scented candle. Just light up the candle, lay in bed, close your eyes and you will literally feel like your at the beach.

Essence Long Lasting Eye Pencil

IMG_3639

Need the perfect eyeliner for beginners? Well I’ve got just the one for you by Essence! Essence is a brand that offers high quality makeup for affordable prices and is exclusively available here in Canada at Shoppers Drug Mart.

I’ve been using this eyeliner for about a year now, and have already purchased my third one. When I bought the eyeliner I didn’t expect myself to use it often because I thought I’d never be able to learn how to apply eyeliner. But boy was I wrong because it’s probably the easiest eyeliner I’ve ever used! It applies soft, smooth, and pigmented, and lasts all day. The eyeliner is also wearable on the lash line to give your lashes a fuller look. I will admit though that it applies quite light on the waterline and doesn’t last as long.

This twist up eyeliner costs $3.49 (Canadian) and is available in 6 different colours. I have “01 Black Fever” and “17 Tu-tu-turquoise”, the names of the shades speaking for themselves.

If you find yourself at Shoppers and want to try something new and easy to use, then definitely try this eye liner!

20 Hair Questions Tag

IMG_2447

1. Why did you start taking better care of your hair?

Some time during April 2013 I decided I wanted to grow out my hair, and keeping it healthy was the quickest way to do it. The reason I wanted to even grow my hair out in the first place were actually for the stupidest reasons: To get rid of this weird bump in my hair and to be able to bring all my hair to one side (which I don’t even do now with long hair).

2. What are your 2 favourite hair products?

I try to avoid using heat on my hair, but if I ever have to then I like to use Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray by TRESemmé.

And after I wash my hair, I always use anti-frizz SHINE SERUM by got2b.

3. Who’s hair did you always admire as a child?

The person who really inspired me to actually grow out my hair was @Beautyklove on YouTube. Her hair is SOO long so I thought if she could do it, then I could too!

4. What is your ultimate goal length?

Butt length! I’m at tailbone length right now.

5. How are you going to celebrate when you reach your ultimate goal length?

Going to straighten it for sure and probably whip it back and forth.

6. Two styles you want to try at your goal length?

Just simply straighten it like I mentioned above, and a long ponytail.

7. Which do you prefer: Health or Length?

Health for sure! I’d hate to have long unhealthy hair.

8. Which do you prefer: hair ties with no metal parts or butterfly clips?

I love hair ties with no metal parts for when I have to put my hair up. I’m currently using ones from Forever 21. They’re inexpensive and really tight, perfect for long, heavy hair.

9. What products do you prefer: salon brands, organic brands, BSS brands, Drugstore brands, or other?

Drug store brands.

10. Which product/technique do you think is over-rated?

Heat less waves using a normal braid. I personally don’t like how the waves look.

11. Which product/technique do you think is under-rated?

Hot oil treatment for sure! It’s something us desi people have been using all our lives, but only recently have other people started using it too.

12. What is your favorite part of your hair regimen?

Hot oil treatments leave your hair unbelievably soft afterwards, so I’d have to say it’s my favourite part of my hair routine.

13. What is the most annoying part of your hair regimen?

Washing and detangling is a task, I really hate it!

14. Oils or butters?

Oils.. I didn’t know they had butters for your hair!?

15. Buns or ponytails?

Ponytails. I wish I knew how to wear a bun.

16. What is your opinion of growth aids.

Can’t say anything, I’ve never tried any.

17. At what length do you consider hair long?

Waist length.

18. When was the last time you visited a salon.

I honestly don’t remember 😛

19. What do you like to surf most often: YouTube channels, personal blogs, or hair forums?

When I was growing my hair out, I watched a lot of YouTube videos.

21. And finally, what piece of advice would you give to someone just starting out on their hair journey?

It’ll take some time and effort, but the more you care for your hair, the better it’ll turn out.

You can probably tell my hair is quite uneven.. quick tip: don’t trim your own hair if you don’t know how.
