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!

Drinking More Water!

Wednesday, 11 February 2015

For one of my New Years Goals, I wanted to drink more water. In the past I have never been a drinker, like a frequent water consuming individual. I remember my mom and all my family members telling me that if I drank more water, I would feel better, my skin would be nicer and I would be less hungry.

I can honestly say that since January my water intake has probably tripled from my previous habits, and I do feel a lot better, and my skin has been nicer, softer and less grey looking. However, one of the reasons why I never really liked drinking a lot of water is because it's well, bland. There is no taste and that is annoying, but I also don't like Crystal Light because there isn't enough flavour, it's either juice or water for me, nothing in between. This is slowly changing

Here are my tips for drinking more water:

Make a competition out of it my sister and I have the same cups and we challenge each other call it sibling rivalry to see who can drink the most water, I usually have between 3 and 4 of these a day, and we tally it up at dinner every night. Tapping into our competitive natures has really helped, because I cannot lose to my sister.

Have a nice cup having a cup that I want to carry around with me, and is pretty helps because I'm more likely to remember it, I rotate between this one and one that actually shuts so it fits into my backpack (they fit the same amount of water so it follows the rules of the daily competition). On top of it being pretty, it's environmentally friendly which is a large bonus as well, and you can fill it up anywhere.

Add something to it in the summer nothing is better than some lemon in your water, but for some reason I don't ever feel like it in the winter. I have also discovered the Arbonne Essentials Energy Fizz Tabs that my friend sells, they are caffeine replacements, and are supposed to help you focus better, each tube comes with 10 tabs that you can break in half, and adding one to your water gives it a small amount of carbonation, a bit of flavour (the ones I have are pomegranate) and just spice up your water a little bit.
