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!

Blogtober Day 11: Wild Madagascar Vanilla

Saturday, 11 October 2014

Vanilla is my one true love scent, my go to fragrance and really something that smells good paired with anything. The first vanilla scent I remember ever using was when I was 13 and my aunt brought me back Bath and Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar and I've been hooked ever since.

On a recent trip to the mall, I had to go to Bath and Body Works to check out their fall stuff. Candles I'm not allowed to burn, smelly hand soaps, body creams that smell like you bathed in apples you know, the usual stuff. I had no intention of buying things, but they had a cool plink-o game at the front of the store where you could get discounts or free items.. for that day only. So you know, that's a solid reason to seriously look around right?

Moral of the story. I found new things. I'm not sure if it's a seasonal scent, or if it's being tested for the permanent line, but it's new and it smells good. It's called Wild Madagascar Vanilla and it smells like a floral vanilla with a fruity vanilla touch. I hope it stays because it's a unique twist on a regular vanilla line and I really like it. I have a mini body lotion that I keep in my backpack and the shower gel, all in the travel sizes to test them out.

I came across your blog through the CBB directory. I had seen you are in Barrie. I'm not far from you. I'm actually in Wasaga Beach. One day we should get together and do our makeup lol.
