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.

Day Two: How I Organize My Planner

Monday, 1 September 2014

I have always been a very organized person, in high school and university I balance a lot of different activities and jobs, which required my time management skills to be on point, this year it is absolutely no different. With the blog and other things going on like sharing a car with my sister I really have to be organized, especially with an overwhelming school schedule. 

I colour code everything, my closet, my drawers, everything so each class is assigned a colour, with a co-ordinating binder, and an iCal colour. slightly obsessive I know! 
I keep my planner and this arrow pencil case with me all the time. The planner is from Chapters and was $15, and I got the pencil case from a boutique in Steveston B.C. 

The first tab is my month at a glance, where I put colour-coded notes about tests and assignments, as well as personal notes in black and my blog dates in pencil so I can change things around 

The second tab has my week marked off. This planner has 2 weeks at a time to really see what's going on. I like this because I can see what is coming up the next week. 

On the other side I keep a large sticky note with next weeks homework listed, colour coded so that I can mark things off as I go. I took the time to do the first quarter of the school year to match my syllabus so that I'm not surprised by anything. Why yes a life would be wonderful! 

Come back tomorrow to see my school bag essentials!
