    Hi Guys!

    Long time, no see! Sorry I’ve been MIA for the longest while, things have been super busy and hectic. AND I’m trying to make some changes on my actual blog (layout and such), so please be patient with me. Since I have been gone for a while, I thought I’d share a little treat with you all. I finally mustered up the courage to make my first YouTube video, much to the encouragement of my Hubs and friends. I’ll admit that I have to work on editing and lighting, but hopefully that’ll be improved upon soon. I’m currently filming on our point & shoot and editing on my parents’ PC, since my DSLR and computer are in NY with my Husband (just another gripe about long distance relationships).

    Anywho, here it is. I hope you guys enjoy it! I’m working on another video that will be up later this week. :)

  • Huge Collective Makeup Haul (Nov.’13-Feb.’14) – Part 1 – Online Shops

    Mar 6 • Beauty, Haul, Makeup, Tools • 158 Views

    Like I’ve mentioned in my last post, I’m trying to catch up on all the months I lost while I was “hibernating”. I put my haul from Christmas all in the previous post to make it easier and now this post is dedicated to Part 1 of my huge collective makeup haul.

    I haven’t done any shopping for cosmetics for myself since December ’13, so please don’t think I’m trying to brag. Quite frankly, all these items are sitting in our apartment in NY waiting for me to play with them and I just wanted to post about them to get others’ opinions on them all.

    So, here we go…

     

    Hautelook Haul
    Kevyn Aucoin - The Essential Eye Shadow Single in Passion, Aubergine, Fawn, Whisper and Radiant Reflection Solid Foundation in Yasmeen
    I purchased the eyeshadows since I’ve never tried any of Kevyn Aucoin eyeshadows before and they were a major steal at $7 a piece! The foundation I picked up in a darker colour than my skintone to see if it’d be any good in contouring.
    - theBalmtimeBalm Concealer in Light/Medium
    The only item I have from theBalm is the Mary-Lou Manizer highlighter and it is divine! So I thought I’d give their concealer a try. At the time it was 1/2 off on Hautelook, which meant I only spent $9, and it was hard to pass up since I’ve been looking for a good under-eye concealer. If you didn’t know… theBalm will be back on sale on Hautelook tomorrow (03/07)!
    BH & Brush Tree Haul

     

     

    I got the concealer palette in light for Christmas and it was actually supposed to be in medium, so I decided to grab the correct shade for me. The shadow palette was actually also supposed to be part of a Christmas gift from my bro (he got me all the BH cosmetics stuff) but they forgot to put it in my order. WOMP.
    BenjabelleOriginal Brush Tree
    I’m not a fan of laying my brushes flat to dry since water can still seep into the ferrule so the Original Brush Tree is the perfect solution.
    That’s Part 1 of the Huge Collective Haul. Part 2 will have Drugstore Brands and Part 3 will have High End so stay tuned!

  • Super LATE Christmas 2013 Haul

    I’m all packed to move back to NY and ready to go, but there’s a few things that need to get cleared up so I’ll be staying here in Toronto for a little while longer. :(

    Since I have all this time on my hands, I decided I’d share with you guys a few of the hauls I’ve done recently. First up, my super LATE Christmas haul. This year Christmas was really low key for my family and I. With all the things that have happened in the Philippines and such, we decided to stick to a small budget when it came to gifts so that we could use the rest of the allotted funds to helping those affected by Typhoon Haiyan.

    One of my husband’s aunts gave me a green Lacoste L.12.12 Concept Small Tote, which is perfect for trips to the beach and such. The purple Original Gloss Hunter Rain Boots were from the Hubs since I was in major need of Winter boots. Everything else is listed below:

    - Bdellium Tools BrushesMaestro 781 Crease (x2), Maestro 780 PencilMaestro 762 Small Angle (x2), Maestro 764 Bold Angled Brow

    Eve Pearl - Flawless Face Palette

    MACRiRi Hearts MAC Lipsticks in Pleasure Bomb and Bad Girl Riri

    BH Cosmetics6 Color Concealer & Corrector Palette in Light and The Cool Matte Eyeshadow Palette

    Laura Mercier - Artist’s Palette for Eyes

    InglotFreedom System Palette [10] (x2), Freedom System Eyeshadows in 335, 464, 55, 54, 327, 366, 323, 477, 331, 56, 71, 336, 325, 67, 62, 317, 338, 322, 480, 291.

     

    I feel extremely lucky and blessed that I have a family who supports and encourages my passions and dreams. Next up, a huge collective haul of stuff that I’ve gotten since Black Friday all the way up to Valentine’s Day.

    Spring Clothing Haul '14

     

    Spring Clothing Haul ’14 featuring Forever 21

     

    It’s been a long while since I’ve posted anything. I swear I’ve been the worst blogger in the world. BUT, there’s been lots of things going on in my personal life that it’s been taking up a lot of my time. The most important thing is that I am finally moving back to NY any day now, so I’ve been busy trying to sort and pack my clothes. With most of my clothes already in NY, it hasn’t been too crazy but with me having OCD tendencies, I end up sorting and re-packing my clothes over and over again. Continue Reading

  • HAUL: October & November 2013 Beauty

    Dec 6 • Beauty, Haul, Makeup • 227 Views

    I know I’m super behind and I’ve been a terrible blogger lately. Really, I have no excuses. November was a bit of a whirlwind with lots of family time and December has just been a lazy blogging month for me. It’s been pretty cold here in Toronto, so I’ve just been staying home most days.

    I wanted to post my haul from the Ulta 20% Sale, the Sephora VIB Sale, and from IMATS Toronto; before it gets any later in the year and before I forget to do it entirely. This time of year is when I typically do the most of my makeup shopping just because I find all the really good stuff comes out right before the holidays.

    First up, my October Haul.

    I already did a post on hauling some of these items a little while back, but that’s before I actually got my hands on them. The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette, I actually got during the VIB Sale, but I took these pictures the night before IMATS and wanted to post them while they were still in the most pristine condition. I also got a bunch of brushes from Hakuhodo, Bdellium and Royal & Langnickel, but you can read about that in my previous haul post. Below, I’ve listed all the items I was able to get.
