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.

I will go to Ireland.

Tuesday, 25 November 2014

Today's post is a little impromptu- I have always wanted to travel, going places and experiencing new cultures and the wonders of the world has been a big love of mine for as long as I can remember. I got my first real taste of international travel when I was in grade 11 (a whole 6 years ago!!) I went on a travel club trip with my high school and went to 4 countries in 8 days, we were in England, France, Germany and Austria and it was life changing- I was bit by the travel bug, and I've been itching to go back to Europe since.

My great-grandmother was Irish, her name was Molly Foley and she was born on St. Patricks Day, that whole "Luck of the Irish" statement was her, playing cards against her was not a fun time. I've always felt like I had a strong connection to my Irish/Scottish ancestry, it might be my pale face, slightly red hair, freckles, but I really feel very in tune with it.

Recently, I cannot stop listening to Celtic music, Irish in particular- and then procrastinating became a thing, and I was on pinterest searching Ireland... Is it possible to be homesick for somewhere you've never been? I'm pretty sure I am.
