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!

My "Everything I Need" Bag

Saturday, 21 March 2015

I adopted this habit while I was in University when I was rotating between my school bag, work bag and purse and needed my necessities. I've carried this on to my current schooling life, and plan on keeping it going even when I am not in school, to transfer between purses etc.

Blistex Lip Medex This isn't my favourite lip balm simply because it's in a pot, but it makes it easy to have with me especially because the winding down of winter is really drying my lips out. This stuff is kind of greasy in my opinion, which is another reason it's not my absolute favourite, but it does it's job well enough.

Granola Bar I don't get hungry, I get hangry. Keeping a granola bar on me is great especially if I am running late and forget to bring a lunch, or need a snack during my only class on certain days. It's always better to be prepared, which is especially true in the winter, when road blocks and blizzards could keep you on the road longer than expected.

Arbonne Vanilla Shea Butter Hand Cream This stuff smells amazing, and feels amazing. It is a sample size that I received as a gift which makes it the ideal hand cream to keep in my bag. I stick with more neutral scents in my essentials bag just because it goes with every season (unlike my Bath and Body Works Winter Candy Apple hand cream).

Hair Tie and Bobby Pin Long, thick, curly hair. I feel like this is enough of a justification, my hair is unruly 98% of the time, and when I get sick of it it's nice to throw it up. When my hair does co-operate I usually have a test, and I cannot write tests with my hair down. Also, wind. humidity. ya know? And that one annoying piece of hair you just have to pin down bobby pins=best friend

Arbonne Energy Fizz Tabs in Pomegranate Basically tabs that you can break in half, that are caffeine replacements, which are supposed to give you energy and encourage focus. These ones taste like pomegranate and make your bottle of water a light pink colour, the citrus ones make it a pale yellow and taste better in tea. I like keeping these with me to add something extra to another bottle of water at the end of a long day (I aim to drink 3 bottles of water a day- which can get boring sometimes)

Maybelline Colour Whisper in Rose of Attraction This just happened to be my lip product of the day. I rotate this pretty much daily, but this light rose shade is great year round, and perfect to have "just incase" which pretty much means it never leaves this bag

Do you guys keep an "everything I need" bag? What do you keep in it?
