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.

Finals Week Survival Essentials

Friday, 12 December 2014

In Post- Secondary it's the dreaded time of year- Finals Week. While I was in University my exam period was scheduled over 2.5 weeks so I had plenty of time to study for my 5 midterms. In College, some students my sister have 6 finals in 5 days. My professors were generous enough to let us have 3 last week and 3 this week. 

Laptop: In my case, my professors post their lecture slides online, so having them all saved onto my laptop is a lifesaver- as well as the programs Facebook group for when you still have no idea what's going on. 
Tea: This tea, in my Portland Starbucks mug is the Read My Lips Tea, which is a black tea- provides energy without the crash of caffeine, don't know how it works but it's magical. 
iPod: I study to music, and while writing the test I bob my head to the beat in my head and remember what I was reading when the music was playing- I usually listen to movie scores, like the Pirates of the Caribbean one, but lately it's been celtic music. 
Cue Cards: I make flash cards to study from, where I put the term on the front of the card and as much information as I can on the other side- I carry these around with me so I can study anywhere, and get my family members to quiz me the night before the test. 

What are some of your finals week essentials?
