My name is Mikayla! I'm a 22 year old University Graduate with a passion for all things beauty. I stumbled into the online beauty community a year ago and have been obsessed with youtube videos and blogs ever since. After watching hundreds of videos over the past year I figured it was about time I joined the community and posted my own thoughts in my own little space. I'm also recently graduated, unemployed and headed for college in September.

I really enjoy all things beauty, and I really like telling my friends what I think about products so writing them down just felt natural. To me, make up isn't something that you wear to make yourself look prettier, it's something you do on yourself for yourself. It has the power to give you strength to tackle a rough day, the courage to find your inner confidence and sparkle like every girl is meant too.

Other than beauty, I love fashion. Beauty and Fashion are the keys to my heart, along with a great deal. I'm all about a decent deal, and budget shopping is my favourite.

I can't wait to start this journey with the internet and all of you!


Just a general disclaimer:

I am not a professional makeup artist, I am completely self taught, any posts on beauty products are purely personal opinion and should not be taken as fact.

Beauty items shown on this blog are purchased by myself, or as a gift from family members.

Any and all reviews on products are based on my opinions alone.

Hello! Bonjour! Hola!

My name is Mikayla, I'm  21 (almost 22!) years old. I'm in my final weeks of university and absolutely crazy about all things fashion and beauty related. I live in Canada, a lovely country covered in snow about 8 months of the year. For the past four years my life has revolved around a lot of stereotypical Canadian things, I'm in school for a Bachelor of Arts in History and Canadian Studies (yes, I have studied my own country for 4 years) and working at one of my many local Tim Hortons. For those of you who don't know, Tim Hortons is to Canada what Starbucks is to the rest of the world. Next year, I embark on a one year college program to study Human Resources Management, and want a job in Toronto! 

I decided to start this blog because I have spent countless hours on the internet reading blogs and watching videos about makeup, beauty, fashion and more and want to have a place to write about some of my favourite things. I've always been a girl who loved to dress up, go shopping and try on new things, the same applies to my love of makeup. I am always on the look for something new, and being a student, affordable. I've actively been wearing makeup for the last 10 years of my life, I competitively Figure Skated (which required dramatic makeup to be visible on the ice).  

Lately, my life has been consumed with university, two jobs, and a social life. One of my best friends is my biggest makeup pal, we go shopping at our Shopper's Drug Mart (like a CVS or Walgreens) a couple times a week, and the girls know us by name! I'm hoping this blog is a way for me to transition from all of the things that keep me busy, to being unemployed and graduated (haha!) 

I guess, Hello, welcome to my blog, and I hope you want to read it! because I really want to write it! 

xo, Mikaylaaas

ps. if you want to see my face, this is me!
