I've been transitioning my makeup to reflect the warmer weather - glowy skin, subtle bronze, and colourful lips are making their way into my makeup bag. I've also been switching up my fragrances (think light, floral, and airy - hello chloe!) I thought I would showcase these items because they totally capture spring/summer makeup trends!
Let's take a look at the spring/summer releases for Estee Lauder's Bronze Goddess collection, as well as a new Aerin fragrance!
Generation Beauty (or rather, GenBeauty), was held on May 14-15 at the Toronto Metro Convention Centre. You may recognize the venue, as it is the same hall that Fan Expo Canada is held!
GenBeauty was founded by Youtube Star and ipsy creator Michelle Phan. It's not so much a convention (like I originally though - more on that later), but a gathering of brands, beauty content creators, and their audiences. This was their first time holding a GenBeauty event in Toronto, let alone Canada. There have been other events held in New York and Los Angeles, and it was nice to see the online beauty community expand into Canada.
The Ripley's Aquarium opened in 2013, right next to the CN Tower! It's a large aquarium that features a very streamlined path - you make your way through tanks featuring fishes from freshwater and saltwater lakes, to the shark tunnels, to tropical fish, the rays, the jellies, and a behind the scenes of the water filtration systems. It's a beautiful and relaxing environment, great for destressing (unless you're afraid of water, haha!)
As you guys already know, I absolutely love Redbubble! It's a fantastic website where you can get beautiful artwork printed on almost everything, ranging from clothing, to phone cases, to duvet covers, and notebooks! Not only can you get unique pieces to wear, but you'll be supporting the artists you love at the same time. I was more than excited to join them for their spring campaign. I picked out a few Studio Ghibli inspired pieces featuring some awesome fanart from super talented artists!
I have a few pieces to share with you today! There's a fun giveaway at the end where you can win my featured pieces, so keep reading! :)
Spring is here and in full bloom. You know what that means - a full lipstick rotation! Out with the mauves and deep reds and in with the bright and peachy! You guys probably already know that I'm completely predictable with my lip colours. I find out my faves and stick to them!
If you're looking for a new peach or coral shade to try out, think of this as a guide. These are some of my favourite light and peachy shades for spring and summer! Perfect for everyday use, the workplaces, and sunny summer days.
I am definitely, 100%, not a morning person. If you leave me in a dark room with a cozy blanket, I'd probably sleep for 14 hours straight. I'm the type of person who needs to set an alarm or else I'll wake up at 3PM in the afternoon. (To be fair, I'm a bit of a night owl.) I love my bed, I love sleeping, and I absolutely hate waking up to an alarm in the morning. But the reality is I can't sit in bed all day, I've got to get up at some point. With this, I introduce the sunrise lamp.
A sunrise lamp? Probably one of the more unique items I'll review on this blog, but one that's quite interesting none the less. I recently purchased the Philips HF3520 Wake-Up Light on Amazon, and quite a number of you have requested a review! So here I am today, sharing my thoughts, opinions, and critiques to help you make a decision, or figure out why so many bloggers are raving about sunrise lamps!
