Beauty Review – Murale Must Haves

Beauty Review – Murale Must Haves

There’s nothing better than getting beauty in the mail, and being the spoiled girl that I am – Murale treated me to just that! For those of you unfamiliar with the brand, it’s the beauty division of Shopper’s Drug Mart/Pharmaprix in Canada.  Housed with amazing names like NARS, Smashbox, Eve Lom, Caudalie, Clarins, Benefit Cosmetics, Deborah Lippmann, and even […]

A Change For The Simple & Natural…

A Change For The Simple & Natural…

In my last post, I mentioned yearning for farm life.  The insatiable craving to move to the obscure, raise babies, ride horses, feed chickens, and never look back. As I sit down to write this (with coffee in hand), my reasoning may lend some insight that deters from how fleeting it all may sound.  You may or may […]

514 Beauty Post – 60’s Mineral Slick

514 Beauty Post – 60’s Mineral Slick

Sometimes, a little retro drama is just what the doctor ordered.  These Bare Mineral shadows are next level in opacity (I highly recommend them if you’re not one for primers and bases!).  Mirage, the darker of the set, is a lot like the two-toned Kat Von D shades – and that baby blue… What I’m […]

Beauty Review – Current Spring Fixes

(Stay tuned for future makeup looks featuring the above Makeup Forever HD Microfinish Pressed Powder and Second Skin Cream Blush in 220) The thing I probably love most when it comes to seasonal changes, is the shift in wardrobe and beauty rituals.  While addressing new climate conditions can sometimes be more of a drag than […]

Recent Beauty – A Winter Review

Recent Beauty – A Winter Review

Yesterday I hit a point of exhaustion and physical wear normally only reserved for action-packed workweeks crammed with after-hours activities and non-stop social meet & greets.  With more and more labour prep symptoms starting, my body feels strained, drained, and pushed passed it’s capacity for comfort.  Being fixed on ticking off the rest of my […]

514 Beauty Post – Valentine Hues

Last night the man and I sleepily set out, hand in hand, for our poutine date.  Glancing in at every restaurant along the way, first dates and new couples were enjoying each other’s Valentines company.  Sidewalks were lined with lovers hustling past each other in an attempt to meet their dinner reservations on time.  Everyone […]

514 Beauty Post – Feline-Lined Eyes

I’m not sure if I’m on the edge of falling under the weather, or if it’s just completely normal to feel this drained by this stage of pregnancy.  Getting through the day requires some R&R time scheduled in! Sunday the man and I basically woke up, ate, and went back to bed (only reawakening towards […]

514 Beauty Post – Red & Blue Basics

Welcome to Monday!  I must admit, this morning did not have me inspired (producing a back-to-bed result that I only just recently woke from).  With the continued lagging headspace, the day will be one that drags on I’m sure (while I scurry to catch up!).  Today plans on creating homemade shepherd’s pie, washing the pup, […]

Currently Coveting – Annabelle’s Spring Pastel Collection

It’s been mind staggeringly cold here in Montreal (-23 celsius, but feels like -45).  This morning I squeezed into an old jacket of mine so I could burrow my face in an assortment of cashmere scarves and headbands underneath a buttoned-up hood.  Within a ten minute walk your nostrils are sticking together from within, your […]
