Pointless Little Pleasures

I went to IKEA and every time I go I don't come home with a practical piece of furniture I come home with pink candle holders or things like these insanely cute perfume bottles. They came in a Yngren bottle set. Some might think they're pointless because I do not wear perfume, but they're a really nice item to display on a vanity even if it's only water thats inside them.

Sparkle This Holiday Season

I love using Photoshop so I created 2 pages about different sparkly outfits to wear during the holidays. Each out fit probably coasts about $4000 because I got most of the clothing off of So obviously I don't actually own any of the pieces of clothing but it's fun to style them and pretend that maybe someday I'll be able to wear them.

Christmas Time

This Philosophy lip gloss in the flavour Peppermint Bark is from the Much Mistletoeing set. I love the flavour because the flavour smells exactly like chocolate and candy cane. This gloss gives amazing shine and a hint of colour. 

I mainly love it because it reminds me so much of Christmas time.

No Snowflake Is Like The Other

I watched this snowflake nail tutorial on YouTube and I thought it looked so cool. It was on the beauty guru's channel Macbarbie07. I decided to try it out. 

It doesn't look amazing but I think it still looks pretty cool because realistically no snowflake is the same.

To do this I used the polishs "Teal The Cows Come Home" by O.P.I (for the base colour), "Rich In Spirit" (for a glittery base colour), and "Positive Energy" (for the snowflakes) both by Nicole by O.P.I.
In the video she used a thin nail brush to create the snowflakes but I just used a thin paint brush and it worked alright but I don't think the paint brush will be usable again.
If you want to try and create this nail look you can watch the video here.

Winter Lip Gloss Wish List

I'm really sorry about the lack of posts this week. One of the main reasons is because I couldn't get my camera to upload pictures onto my laptop (long story). But here is a lip gloss of the week post featuring my winter lip gloss wish list. All of them have loads of moisture, so I bet they would be perfect for these dry Winter seasons, and one of them is actually a body moisturizer that can be used on lips! 

Turns out the word "wishlist" is spelled "wish list". I discovered this after editing the photo.

Sorting Through

Isn't it weird how you sometimes buy a $10 bottle of nail polish but only wear it twice. I was sorting through my small collection and realized I have a lot of random colours from a long time ago. They're all Sally Hansen 'cause thats what I bought when I first started using nail polish. 

The yellow one goes on really well, the rich purple and sparkley orange apply alright, but the black takes a few coats. For the most part I like Sally Hansen, it's just that they chip and they're hard to take off with nail polish remover. Because they are hard to take off I haven't worn them in awhile, I should really sort through my things more often!

Some Auttum Shopping

This weekend I found this shirt at Forever 21 and thought it was an amazing shirt especially for the low price of $18.

I think this shirt could be paired and switched up a lot of different ways so it was a good buy.
I also got a gold coloured leaf necklace to wear with the shirt because they were having a sale on jewlery.

I think this necklace is perfect for Fall.
Thanks for reading!

Lip Crayon or Pencil Crayon

While shopping at Loblaws I got this Joe Fresh (which is the clothing and beauty line Loblaws sells) sheer lip crayon in the colour Candy on sale for only $2. The deal was amazing especially for how well the product worked. It has a great long lasting colour, sorta works as a lip liner, and gives a bit of gloss. When you put it on it feels really moisturizing but after a while it dries out your lips but a bit of lip balm fixed that. It looks a lot like a pencil crayon and even smells like one (is it weird I know what a pencil crayon smells like?).

Here At Last

I finally ordered something form which is a fashion forward UK online clothing store. I picked out this shiny silver purse. On the website it didn't look shiny and it was much more of a grey colour but I still really like it. 

The only problem is that I didn't receive it till long after when it was supposed to arrive. I contacted the store and they assumed it was lost in the mail so they said they would refund it. It showed up though so I'm not sure I'll get the refund but at least the purse is here.

Favourite Fashion Apps

I know I did something like this already but I thought I'd do an updated version of my favourite fashion/beauty apps. The Nicole by O.P.I app is really good 'cause you can view all their colours so when you're buying nail polish you can know what you're looking for. Go Try It On is really fun because you can post pictures of your outfit and have people vote on if they like it. I find the Sephora app extremely helpful because you can  view all their products. I take a screen shot of the products I like so when I'm in the store I can ask for exactly what I'm looking for. The final app is Pose which is a lot like twitter but instead of being about your life it's about clothes and such. I love all of these apps 'cause they're all free but have great quality.
