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!

Hawaiian Tropic After Sun: Review

Sunday, 3 August 2014

I am a pasty person, the sun and I do not agree, which is why I am for anything and everything that will help my skin in its battle against the sun. Every summer of my entire life has been plagued with coverups, sunscreen, cold tea bags, and moisturizer. Recently while on a Target trip with my sister I stumbled across their summer section which had a bunch of skin care products like sunscreen and after-sun cream. I picked up the Hawaiian Tropic After Sun lotion in the Lime Coolada scent, for just around a dollar- for a sample size, which realistically is perfect for a beach bag.

Luckily I have had a couple days off and some uncharacteristically extremely hot weather in Vancouver, which meant walking across the street and enjoying some time on the beach with my family. I was only at the beach for an hour or so, and even with children's SPF 60 sunscreen I managed to walk away with quite the burn. Okay to the point, this lotion has been getting used a lot in the last 24 hours, on my nose which got quite burnt and my upper back which is very burned. 

Overall, I enjoy the product, it is moisturizing and soothing to sunburns, and when applied directly after being outside it very refreshing. I think it is worth the money, it's not crazy expensive, it smells amazing, and is everything that is important in a moisturizer.
