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!

3 Winter Essentials

Wednesday, 19 November 2014

In Canada, it's already winter, we seem to have skipped the last part of fall and gone right into a good foot of snow. Today was actually a snow day for my college because we got so much snow last night that they couldn't clear the parking lots for the students. 

Along with winter comes cold weather, chapped lips, the flu and dry skin, these three items come along with me wherever I go. 

Hand Sanitizer I love the Bath and Body Works hand sanitizers, I usually pick them up on a good deal whenever I'm in the store and tend to go for more seasonally appropriate scents. I'm currently using the Winter Candy Apple scent that comes out every Christmas and I love the smell. 

Lotion I have a couple different lotions that I rotate through, but currently I have a travel size of the Wild Madagascar Vanilla from Bath and Body Works, I also use other body lotions that I get in my ipsy bag. My hands get really dry in the winter so I need to have lotion with me at all times. 

Lip Treatment Last winter I discovered the Dr. Rescue Baby Lips, and I wasn't a big fan of the original line so I was hesitant to try it, but I'm hooked- it's medicated, and really conditions my lips to prevent them from getting too dried out in the winter, but this particular product is also really good when you're lips are already dry, the nourishment this stuff gives is insane, using it even a couple times a day prevents dry, cracked lips. 

What are your winter essentials?
