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!

Pinterest Finds #2: Does it work?

Monday, 16 June 2014

For today's Monday Pinterest Finds Post I have found an easy 2 ingredient recipe for a DIY Face Scrub! All you need is Coconut Oil/Olive Oil and Baking Powder. It can be found Here

There are no specific measurements, she recommends equal parts if you plan on mixing up a large batch to keep in your shower or something.

What I did, was use a small amount of Baking Powder and a small amount of Coconut Oil just in my hand, I did this because if it does not work or I do not like it I haven't wasted a lot of materials.

Coconut Oil                                               Blended with Baking Powder 

I mixed the oil and powder in my hand just using my finger, before applying it to my face.

Rubbing the concoction onto my face in circular motions, before rinsing off with warm water.


I did this find with my sister, we both LOVED it. We found that because you are adding in the exfoliating ingredients (Baking Powder) you can customize it to your preference. I like a more aggressive exfoliation while my sister likes softer, since we have different preferences we could still use the same ingredients but in different quantities.

While I like a more aggressive exfoliation, I like to feel it working right away (I'm a taad impatient). It was still soft and moisturizing enough that it didn't leave my skin feeling sore and angry.

I will definitely be making this scrub part of my routine!
