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.

September Pinspiration

Wednesday, 2 September 2015

I started this pinspiration series way back in January and it was always my favourite part of the month. I love pinterest as a source of inspiration for whatever I want, and I really liked sharing some of the things I had found on the site that were inspiring me for the month ahead. As I'm getting back into this blogging thing (with 2 posts a week) I thought I would bring back my favourite series.

For the month of September (can you believe it's already September!?) I'm really looking forward to fall, and because of my recent surgery, fall fashion (and eating healthy!) are things I'm really looking forward too, I also start my placement this month, and need lots of ideas for healthy lunches etc.

I'm loving these shoes paired with rolled up skinny jeans, I just imagine it with a bulky sweater and top knot! I'm also a pasta lover (I swear I could be Italian) and am really interested in trying this broccoli and alfredo pasta! maybe I'll share my thoughts when I've tried it!? 

I really like this quote- I found it the other day and really like how inspiring it is, a possible new tattoo in my future? I'm even thinking of DIY-ing something using it. I'm toying with the idea of cutting a couple more inches off my hair, I just did this in June and it's almost all grown back, I'm feeling a little courageous. 

We moved about 6 weeks ago and I've been slowly building my room to how I want it, I really like this DIY to do list that wouldn't be too expensive to make, because I live needing to do lists, and it's super cute! Warm sweaters! I love how she has it paired with a dressy skirt and a more casual top, it would look so nice with ankle booties and tights.

My sister and I have been decorating our bathroom (instead of coral we went for splashes of lavender) I love how simple and elegant this looks. Dark nails are something I have been waiting for since April, I love the use of different colours and the gold dots!

What is inspiring you this month?
