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:

Cross Canada Day 5! Medicine Hat to Brandon Manitoba!

Sunday, 5 July 2015

Today's journey starts last night actually. At around 12:30 we woke up to a FIREALARM at our hotel, which was pretty much a 20 minute walk around and then crawling back into bed. You know how when you wake up in the middle of the night and you're hungry- yeah. We had to wake up at 6 am to have breakfast for 6:30 before hitting the road at 7 am. We planned on covering 827 kilometres today which would take us from Medicine Hat Alberta to Brandon Manitoba, completely covering the province of Saskatchewan. 

Long story short, interrupted sleep, 5 days on the road and over a week in a hotel- we are finally getting cranky. 

Since we planned on covering such a distance today we didn't plan any fun stops (which was intentional, we had done so much the first 4 days that we had to start making up the time somewhere!) but we did get some pictures. 

P.S. the pictures are kind of foggy looking because Northern Saskatchewan is dealing with a lot of wildfires currently, and the fires are so large and powerful that the wind is carrying the smoke south, even into the United States and it really smells like a campfire. Be safe people of Northern Saskatchewan (it does not get easier to spell that name- no it doesn't) and Northern Manitoba!
