Follow Me On Tumblr!

Hey Guys! Hope everyone has been having a fantastic winter so far. I'm just giving you all a little bit of an update about why I haven't been blogging as much recently: I've discovered Tumblr. Yes, finally I have seen the beauty of social media that is Tumblr. Everyone has been telling me to create a Tumblr blog and so finally I decided to do it! 

I have to admit that it's quite addicting, but also super awesome at the same time. I created a fashion blog that's mostly luxury, black and white, makeup and sometimes I'll reblog the odd bouquet of flowers or alley way. Feel free to follow me here and message me any time through the ask link. Also, let me know your url's if you have a Tumblr blog by commenting below or messaging me. I'd love to check all of your blogs out if I get the chance. 

Stay tuned for another blog post coming up within the next little bit!

The Best Oils For Your Skin

Natural oils are probably the best healing and nourishing substance for your skin and this is exactly why I use them so often. Whether it be from an argan tree, a coconut or an almond, oils of all kind are super beneficial. They have anti-aging properties as well as moisturizing and repairing qualities. Oils are also not only used for skin but also on your hair and you can ask the Olsen sisters and any other celebrity about that one. 

Recently these organic substances have become all the rage but there are so many offered that it might be a bit confusing as to which you should buy. That's why I created a little glossary of oils to help a sister out. Enjoy!

Glossier by Into The Gloss: A Sort Of Review

Ever since the favourited beauty blog Into The Gloss launched it's own line of skincare products, the world has been going crazy. Unfortunately, since I live in Canada I am not able to order the products online just yet. However, after reading a bunch of reviews on all the products that are offered, I can come to a conclusion that once they announce international shipping I'm going to be the first person to jump online and buy the whole set.

When first hearing about the launched beauty line, I thought that it would be items such as mascara, foundation, blush, etc. It was launched by a beauty website, right? After reading that this was not the case, I was both shocked and intrigued about what products they were offering. Glossier is not targeted towards makeup but is more focused on skincare. As someone who doesn't wear a lot of makeup, this was the best was the best news ever. 

My main focus everyday is priming my skin and making sure it's healthy and glowing, so when I read that the products from Glossier are priming moisturizer, skin salve, face mist and skin tint, I was all for it. These four items have been a beacon of hope for many and hopefully they will be for you as well (and eventually me too). Here are some explanations and reviews for each product in order to give you a little push into seeing the light... 

MK & Ashley Tell Us What's Always In Their Purse

The famed twin style icons Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are two people everyone in the fashion industry worships. Whether is be their minimalistic laid-back street style or their beautiful glossy hair, these girls know fashion like they know the back of their hand. 

Recently, the twins sat down with Lucky Magazine and spoke about their affordable jewelry collaboration with StyleMint, but more importantly what items they carry in their purse at all times. 

They were asked what they always keep in their clutches and answered us this: "My phone, credit card, keys and Cle de Peau concealer," says Ashley. 

Mary-Kate carries, "Glossier lip gloss, Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip liner, keys, my phone and a credit card."

These ladies keep it simple and chic and there's no denying we won't be using this as a little inspiration for cramming less stuff into our clutches.

My 3 Day Smoothie Cleanse Challenge

I'm known for always watching what I eat, according to friends and family, because of the unwanted chemicals and carcinogens in food that I digest, and also just because I like maintaing a healthy body, mind and soul. This means I'll treat my self about once a week but other than that I stick to whole foods that have a limited amount of fat and sugar in them. And I almost forgot to mention the fact that I'm a vegetarian. You could say I'm a bit of a health nut. 

But expectedly, over the past few weeks I've felt a little sluggish from not exercising frequently, but foremost the fact that I've been eating too much junk food. Whether it be chips, chocolate or candy; I've eaten it all within the past 2 weeks. These cravings were getting on my nerves and I knew I was gaining weight because of it and more importantly I just didn't feel that good overall. Knowing that I could always begin to eat cleaner or exercise more than usual to kickstart my healthy habits again, I decided to try something a little different this time: a smoothie cleanse

Acne Studios Now Has Underwear

Acne Studios launched their underwear line just the other day on October 15th. The collection of neutral hues includes tank tops, bikini and high-waisted panties. An assortment of video memos also accompany the underwear collection with a total of six acts (see below). Prices start at just $55 too, chic, affordable and comfy? Count me in. 

The soft Pima cotton jersey materials sounds extraordinarily comfy and from the video memos they look like a lot of fun to wear. The elastic waistband also looks perfect for keeping everything in place, if you know what I mean. Not to mention they come in the cutest little pink boxes. Take a look for yourself...
