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.

Any and all reviews on products are based on my opinions alone.

1) Do you like to stay in your PJ's, or dress up for Christmas?
I like to stay in my PJ's during the day on Christmas, but we usually have family over, or go and see family, so I end up dressing up.. but I wouldn't say I like it a lot. 

2) If you could only buy one person a present this year who would it be?
Can I say my whole family and if I could afford it fly everyone together? My whole family extends from the East Coast of Canada to the West Coast (about 5,000 kilometres) so having everyone together would be the best present.. 
3) Do you open your presents Christmas Eve or Christmas Morning?
We open one present Christmas Eve, which is a pair of PJ's (sorry mom secrets out!) It's a tradition we do every year, followed by whatever presents we get from my dad's parents, because they go see family on Christmas Day (and we live across the country) so with the time change it's easier to open the night before so we can call and say Thank You.
4) Have you ever built a Gingerbread house?
As a kid my dad and I would every year, we still do most years. I get unbelievably frustrated every year, but get so excited every Christmas to build another one. 
5) What do you like to do on your Christmas break?
Spend time with my family, relax, sounds strange but organize.. 
6) Favorite Christmas meal or treat?
On Christmas Eve my mom dad sister and I make a whole bunch of appetizers and watch Christmas movies.. does that count as a meal? Or Ham, I love Ham on Christmas.. and Homemade Peanut Butter Cups! 
7) What's your favorite holiday movie?
How the Grinch Stole Christmas, or The Sound of Music (why is that a Christmas movie?)
8) Candy Canes or Gingerbread Men?
Candy Canes, I've already been through a box! 
9) Have you ever made a Snowman?
I have, Ontario gets a lot of snow, so I grew up attempting to make a snowman a couple times a year. 
10) Which do you like better, Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?
The middle, Christmas Eve when everyone says goodnight and  Merry Christmas, and then right when you wake up and you're 22 and still so excited for Christmas Day and say Merry Christmas and good morning.. The whole time of being with your family, and being together is my favourite part. Not the part where my sister still stays up all night 
11) White lights, or colored lights?
White lights, they just look so pretty against the snow and the tree and are so classy and elegant.
