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.

A Few New Products...

Saturday, 9 August 2014

I know I've been MIA lately, I'm in the stage where I am trying to balance everything and really figure out my routine and methods when it comes to blogging. While I've been trying to find my way I have been busy! Maybe I'll have a photo diary of what I have been up to coming, but today I thought I would share some of my recent purchases over the last couple of weeks.

Revlon ColourStay Moisture Stain 015 Barcelona Nights 

Revlon Parfumerie Ginger Melon
The Balm Meet Matt(e) 

Maybelline The Rocket Volum' Express Waterproof Black
Q&A A Day 5 Year Journal 
NYX Tinted Moisturizer 01 Buff 

NYX Baked Blush Spanish Rose (it's very sheer so I couldn't get a good swatch picture :(,) 
NYX Chunky Dunk Hydrating Lippie 01 Watermelon Cooler 
Well, that's all I've purchased in the last couple of weeks, look for upcoming reviews coming soon on all of these products!

I love the colours, I had a hard time picking just one! The polish really does smell nice, it has a citrusy melon smell to it once it dries!

I love the titles of the Balms palettes and shades, always so quirky. I got this at London Drugs in Vancouver, but I'm pretty sure you can order them online, I'm not sure if Shoppers would have them.. I'm really loving the mascara.. are you!?
