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.

Galaxy Nails

Spring is essentially here! Insert happy dance here To celebrate I painted my nails this great purpley-blue colour. It's by Sinful Colours in the shade Shock and Awe. I was originally only going to paint an accent nail with this shimmery purple and aqua glittery polish, but I ended up liking it so much that I painted it over all my nails. It's called Frenzy, and also by Sinful Colours.

The base colour, Shock and Awe, is pretty pigmented and went on smooth- I used 2 coats to get it this opaque but you could get away with one. I went over it with the glitter, Frenzy, twice as well.

It is finally above zero here, which means that it's officially spring even though the calendar doesn't say that for another 10 days!
