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 usually change my nail polish about once a week, and I tend to go with seasonal colours, things that fit my mood (if I have a really busy week coming up I go for something bright and bubbly), and what goes better with a cold front than some bright pink ish nails? 

Currently in the snow belt (that is a stretch towns that get a lot of snow in Canada) it is -17 celsius, so very cold, in fact this picture is taken in my window using the current blowing snow as a background. 

While my sister and I were out Christmas shopping last year (like a month ago haha) we picked out the Formula X nail polish that was available as a 100 point perk, it's a small little bottle of polish but it's great to sample in it before investing in the polish (this is exactly why I shop at Sephora- to get points to try more things). 

This A+ colour is a bright magenta colour that really compliments the cold weather and snow that is currently not my friend (hello 7 am brushing off the car with snow blowing in your face) by not being a pastel colour but still bright and happy! 

I've only had this colour on for 2 or 3 days and I do like it, it has faded and chipped but this could very well be because I do not have a top coat- or base coat, there are no coats for my polish..
