Hello, nice to meet you! I’m Katie, a millennial & recent college grad (how long am I allowed to say that?).
Happy (belated) Canada Day! I’m one day late, but can’t every day be Canada Day? One of my all-time favorite makeup brands, Bite Beauty, released a limited-edition lipstick in honor of Canada Day (spoiler alert: it’s red)!
I’ve been in a fashion rut lately. Like many others out there, I’ve got a bad case of nothing-to-wear in my already bursting-at-the-seams closet. My clothing collection seems to almost swallow my poor boyfriend’s section of the closet, yet I find myself struggling with creating new outfits as of late. My conscious tugs at me to not purchase anything else because of wastefulness and my desire to be less impulsive. That led me to trying out Le Tote.
Makeup removers is the holy grail of all makeup routines for those of us who love our waterproof makeup- that smudge-proof mascara, waterproof liner… it all doesn’t stand a chance with great face-cleaning products! We all search for the best-of-the-best products to wipe our facial canvases clean at the end of the day, and I’m excited to share with you the products I’ve curated to wash away the day.
Recently I fell into the impulse-purchase-pit… but to justify it, I did emerge with some really lovely products from the Colourpop x Hello Kitty collection. There’s just something about Hello Kitty that transcends all demographics… maybe it’s that iconic face and the decades of cuteness associated with the brand? Whatever it is- it totally works. I bought two lip products and an eye shadow: clearly, I wanted all the things pink. And shiny.
After a long hiatus, I’ve returned! As Spring has finally sprung, I decided it was time to start blogging once more and come back with a bang by sharing my favorite products that got me through winter.
For those who love mascara, we’ve all (at one point) experienced the feeling when your mascara is running out: the pain floods you, knowing the imminent day you have to replace it is quickly approaching. No matter how many times you tell yourself, “just one more day,” you know you can only repeat this sentiment for so long. Ever since I got a trial-size of the Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara by BareMinerals, I’ve never looked back. I learned they “revamped” it recently, much to my dismay.
I’m perpetually seeking new home decor items I can’t live without. My go-to places online for inspiration are West Elm and Crate & Barrel, but I prefer a much cheaper price point. I “stumbled” into T. J. Maxx and HomeGoods this past week, and I came out with some amazingly affordable pieces. No one would ever know these goodies came from an off-price retailer- it’ll be our little secret!
“Classy,” a book by Derek Blasberg, provides a comprehensive guide “for the extremely modern lady” on how to be exactly that- a classy, modern lady. Sounds simple enough, but it covers everything- politics, fashion, culture, and everything in between. This book is the real-life equivalent of a video game walkthrough.
I love Canadian brands, and I like lipstick…a lot. I’ve been teetering back and forth on whether to break down and get a Bite Beauty lipstick. I did. I tried the Multistick to see how well it performs as a lipstick, a blush, and eyeshadow. Continue reading
