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.

Road trip 2014- Day 4

Friday, 22 August 2014

On our last day we woke up in Portland, had breakfast in our hotel and hit the road, we had to pass through Seattle again, and this time after 4 hours in the car we stopped for a bit of a stretch- at an outlet mall.

Before we left, we stopped at Starbucks to get another "You are here collection" mug. I currently have one from Pike Place Market (Seattle, the Original Starbucks), a Canada one, and this beautiful Portland one.

I have wanted a pair of black vans for a while now, and never got around to actually buying them, at the outlet I just had to! 

I got this little Coach wristlet to attach to my keys and keep my id and cards and some change in while I'm in school. 

The biggest purchase I made on this trip is this wallet from Kate Spade, it's a purple wallet with plenty of room in it, I really considered never using it so it would remain "new" forever. 

I'm completely in love with this wallet and still cannot believe I bought it. I also decided that it is the perfect motivation for when I am in school and not wanting to do my work, all I have to think is "matching handbag, matching handbag."

Sorry this week has been dedicated to travel and shopping, I wanted to show everything but not have one gigantic post for shopping and another for my trip. Starting next week I will be back to posting regularly and have some really great ideas planned!
