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.

I Graduated University!!

Thursday, 5 June 2014

As I write this post, I am sitting in the airport, waiting for my flight to Vancouver for the summer. Yesterday was a surprisingly big day (and very tiring) as I accomplished something no one else my family has done.. on my dad's side at least.. I GRADUATED UNIVERSITY.

I've taken up introducing myself as "Hi, I'm Mikayla, I have a degree." It hasn't really sunk in yet, but I was so nervous about tripping before hand that I'm glad it's over. As you saw in my last post, we had to stay in a hotel, which meant a tad of an uncomfortable sleep and makeup applications using tiny mirrors as all the other ones were taken.

Shaking hands with the Chancellor, I'm officially a University Graduate

My Best Friend, who helped me every time I considered giving up
My Grandpa, Dad, and Poppy
