Hello everyone! I know, it’s been AGES! My life has been crazy busy for the past few months, and I have a ton of exciting things to share with you all. However, I thought it might be nice to dip my toes back in to the blog world with a favourites post. The first week of May is done, but I have tried a bunch of new things throughout the month of April and I can’t wait to share them! Also, I tried taking ~aesthetic~ pictures of some of my faves to just, you know, shake things up a bit!
- Mane ‘n Tail shampoo and conditioner: I don’t know about you guys, but I have crappy hair. Everyone and their mother probably hates their hair at some point in their life, but recently, I’ve been fed up with mine. That was until I stumbled upon this miracle shampoo and conditioner. I used to see it being advertised in Teen Vogue magazines when I was younger (tbh still obsessed) and I always thought it was for horses. Well it actually is!! Kinda. This stuff can actually be used for human and horse hair and it does not even weird me out! The sent is nothing special but really it’s what inside that counts. I’ve been using this for about a month now and my scraggly, fuzzy, poofy, kinky hair has become stronger, shinier, and all around nicer looking. I feel as if it has more life and it sits just right. I’ve also heard that this baby is great if you are looking to grow your hair, and since I’ve had a shoulder length lob for about a year now, I’m totally up to see it grow! I highly suggest this to anyone whose looking to liven up their hair routine.
- Steve Madden leather sandals: Over Easter break, my family took a little vacation to Florida to soak up some sun, seeing as though it has been cold and rainy up here in Canada for months. Before this trip I was on the hunt for the perfect pair of sandals to wear with all my summery outfits. You know that moment when you see something in a store that is exactly what you pictured in your head? Well that was what happened when I saw these babies! They are super comfortable, come in a bunch of colours, and can be dressed up or down. I am so so so excited to get more use of of these in the summer months! Although, fair warning, I had to go a full size up in these. I normally wear a 6.5 but I ended up getting a 7.5, weird right?
- Diorshow mascara: If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you may know I am a high end mascara junkie. It’s pretty much the only high end makeup I will always splurge on, and this is surely no exception! I saw on Pinterest a while ago a post where this was talked about as being one of the “cult classic” mascaras that people have been obsessive over for years. Obviously, I had to go check it out (besides, I was running out of mascara anyways). With the hefty price tag of about 40$ CAD, I really hoped I was going to love it as much as the internet did. And my oh my was I not disappointed! I normally don’t opt for the wire/fluffy brushes, but this one has a HUGE fluffy brush that on one coat gets everything looking like your eyelashes but better. It is also super buildable, which I like and never gets clumpy of flakey. The tube also has a really nice seal on it with actually feels like it is locking when you close it. For a girl who uses my mascaras until they die, I love this! Since the brush is huge, I don’t tend to use it on my bottom lashes, but I have recently discovered the Pixi cosmetics lower lash mascara and WOWZA it is the greatest product for your bottom lashes (even the upper ones look great with this), I just wish it came in a larger tube! I definitely recommend trying these two together!
- Too Faced melted metal lipstick: Despite all I said about that mascara, I am by no means whatsoever a beauty guru. Makeup, as much as I love the idea of it, actually kinda scares me. Whenever I go into a Sephora, I want to buy everything because it is all so pretty, but then I start feeling overwhelmed and leave with a hand full of swatches. But, from my extensive research and my makeup products I want to try but am too scared to buy Pinterest board (yes, it exists), there are some things that I’d be willing to buy if a good opportunity came up. Enter in our trip to Florida and a last on the clearance rack lipstick. I have been ogling over this cute packaging forever and have always wanted to test out one of these melted lip colours. I found this one, albeit not in a shade I would usually pick, on the sale rack for 8$!! The colour is called Melted Dreamhouse and is like a Barbie pink, however it can go on really sheer, how I like it for “everyday” wear. I don’t think this exact colour or metal range is still available, but you can still get these melted lippies in a bunch of other colours, I’d totally opt for Melted Peony, but thats just me!
So that is it for my mini favourites and my jump back into my blog! I hope you guys enjoyed my attempt at adding photos into my posts, I’d love any feedback! Also, feel free to comment any of your favourite products recently because I am always down to try new things!
Love you bunches,
