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!

Tag Week: Summer Must-Haves Tag!

Friday, 2 May 2014

Today's Tag for Tag week is the Summer Must Haves Tag! As summer is approaching, and here in Ontario it is actually getting a little warmer I thought this was a great tag to have to do! I found these questions on Kelly Loves Beauty 1's youtube channel. It is a couple of years old, but hey why not!?

1. what is your favourite sunscreen?
I usually use Hawaiian tropics of some kind in at least SPF 30, because I'm really pale and don't tan. My shades are either ghost or lobster. there is no in-between.
2.what is your favourite moisturizer? 
The Garnier 7 day moisture in Mango Oil. It's super moisturizing and smells really great!

3. what is your favourite sunless tanner?
Jergens daily glow moisturizer in the lightest shade

4. what is your favourite bronzer?
I'm currently obsessed with the Revlon Highlighting Palette in Rose Glow- it's a shimmer brick type product and the bronzing shades are perfect for a soft summer glow.

5. what is your favourite face product?
The L'Oreal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier in Fair, I use this on a daily basis, for just a tiny bit of coverage but nothing too drastic, it's perfect for summer.

6. What is your favourite lip product?
Maybelline Colour Whisper in Pin Up Peach, just enough colour and the colour is perfect for summer

7. what is your favourite mascara for the summertime?
I'm currently in love with L'Oreal Voluminous Butterfly mascara in Black. It's not a summer specific product.

8. what is your favourite hair product?
I love using purple shampoo in the summer to really highlight the natural blonde in my hair.
9. what is your favourite swim suit?
I got my bottoms from La Vie En Rose (I'm not sure if this is a Canada specific store or not!?) they are just black and plain and my top from my aunt who bought it on a boardwalk in florida.. It's a sky blue colour, and it's just the regular triangle top, with a wider band underneath for more support.
10. what is your go to outfit?
Denim shorts and a t-shirt. I'll go for something that is a little flowier, and denim jeans with a pair of flip flops, super casual so I don't die in the humid Ontario summers
11. what are your favourite sunglasses?
My favourite sunglasses are a knock off pair of Ray Bans, from forever 21 that I got last year for like 10 bucks. They have some simple cheetah print on the inside of the arms.

12. what is your favourite nailpolish?
I love the Rimmel 60 second purple polish in I lilac you.

13. what are your favourite shoes?
I buy every year the same pair of black flip flops from walmart for 5 dollars, and buy the end of the summer I have to throw them out because they are worn to nothing. I love these shoes. I also adore this pair that I got from target.
14. what is your favourite jewellery piece?
My pandora rope bracelet that wraps around my wrist twice (that's the design), I have one simple charm on it and I love it. It looks great stacked with my watch etc.

15. what is your favourite food/drink?
Tim Horton's frozen lemonade- get the raspberry one with the yogurt. So yummy.
16. what is your favourite song for the summer?
Right now- She's looks so perfect by 5 Seconds of Summer, or ANYTHING country.
17. what is your favourite perfume for the summer?
Right now I'm loving my lush vanillary solid perfume, it's perfect because it's not a mist or anything, and you can throw it in your bag for a subtle touch up if it melts off which here in Ontario that could happen.
