Purple + Polka Dots

I headed out the other day for a meeting and decided to snap this photo of my outfit (I would have showed you the whole thing except for the fact that my apartment is lacking a full length mirror). I love the mix of print with bright colour and it was the perfect outfit for a bright sunny spring day. The pants are American Eagle Jeggings which I love and need to buy another pair of because I am wearing these out. The shoes are Calvin Klein wedges that I picked up at Marshalls (and the only heel I own that doesn't flop off my feet YAY!). The blouse is Bianca Nygard purchased two years ago from The Bay (so cool, I know) and the blazer is from Forever 21.

May Favourites

 Now that we are at the end of May I've decided to share my favourite beauty products from the month with you. I love watching these videos on Youtube and decided it was time to do one of my own and you can watch it below. 
This months favourites are:
1. Nars blush in Orgasm (my all time favourite blush)
2. Dior Shimmer Powder in Rose Diamond (the perfect pink toned highlighting powder)
3. Maybelline Silken Taupe 180 (I've used this colour since high school and will never be without it)
4. Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette (my brows have never looked better)
5. Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy (the perfect natural pink lip colour in a moisturizing formula)
6. La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo (the reason for my cleared up skin)
7. SEE by Chloe (a perfect summer scent)
8. Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara (small eyes/lashes need this mascara!)

Cuccio Colour I Left My Heart In San Francisco

I tried out another colour from Cuccio Colour last week and I really, really liked it (please ignore my terrible paint job and dry hands). It is a gorgeous pale pink that is slightly sheer and a nice change from the super bright colours that I normally wear at this time of the year. I had much better luck with the longevity of this colour and it lasted a week with a chip on only one nail which I think is pretty good.

Muskoka

This past weekend Canada celebrated Victoria Day and I headed to Muskoka for the long weekend with some friends. It was my first time in the region and it was beautiful. We relaxed by the water, went canoeing, boating, had a bonfire and put off fireworks. 
 We also ate A LOT, enjoyed some black tea vodka sodas and made Zebra Cake which is always delicious. All in all it was a wonderful weekend and I am sorry to be back in the city. 
How did you spend your weekend?

MAJN Herbal Skin Caring Eye Mask

I love using face masks so I was pretty excited when my friend Vanessa returned from a trip to Hong Kong with some things for me. One of the items was this Collagen Anti-Wrinke Eye Mask by a brand called MAJN. I've never heard of the brand but I love these sheet masks because they are always fun to use. I have never used an eye sheet mask before so this was even more fun. The sheet fit perfectly around my eye area which was nice because most face sheet masks are rather large. The serum that the mask was soaked in was nice and cooling and had a slight tingling effect. I used this before bed but because of the tingling it may have been better as a pick me up before a night out or as part of my morning skin care routine. (but who has time for masks in the morning?

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy

My awesome friend Lauren sent me Chanel's Rouge Coco Shine in the colour Boy for Christmas and I have loved using it. It is a gorgeous your lips but better colour that is perfect for everyday wear. I'm definitely a tinted lip balm kind of girl so this formula is my preferred type of lipstick (I hate dry matte finishes because they dry out my lips). It is a super smooth and balmy lipstick that offers a medium wash of colour. If you want a long lasting lip colour that isn't going to wear off then this isn't for you but I'd much rather re-apply than feel like my lips are as dry as a lizard and about to fall off (if you know what I mean).
What's your favourite kind of lipstick?

Cuccio Colour Tel-Aviv About It!

Cuccio Colour is a brand that is new to me but I am always game to try new polishes and I fell in love with this slightly grey nude. The wear on this isn't the best as I've worn it twice and both times it chipped within a few days. I've been told that a base coat extends the life dramatically but to be honest I'm way too lazy for base coat. 


What do you think? Have you tried Cuccio Colour before?

Maxi

 Now that summer is most definitely on its way after a very late start to spring (except for the fact that it SNOWED in Toronto yesterday) I can't help but browse the web for fun summer dresses. I have never been one to wear a maxi but I always love the way they look on others and wish I could find one that would suit my small frame. I was checking out the maxi dresses available at Very.co.uk and came across a fun, and very beach appropriate maxi dress



Are you a maxi fan?

Spring is in the Air

Last weekend I headed home for a few days. I find that it is so easy to forget how beautiful the changing seasons are when you live in a city and aren't surrounded by nature so it was nice to get away and see the countryside in bloom.
 We went for a walk in a local park and then went for a little road trip. Isn't Finley adorable?


Happy Friday!
