Fall Lips | Very Berry

Thursday, 18 September 2014


So evidently we are feeling the fall season on the blog, and in continuation of Elle's burgundy fashion inspiration post, today's post is about some of my favorite dark fall lipsticks. The dark vampy lip has been a constant over the past few seasons, and I am happy that it looks like it isn't going anywhere! In my lipstick collection, I'd definitely say that the dark berry colors are in the majority. I think it suits me, and when you find something that works for you; werk it!

Dress Code | Variations Autour du "Burgundy"

Wednesday, 17 September 2014



Fall is just around the corner and it is time to start transitioning from those summer hues! What better color to start the fall inspiration board series than burgundy? Chic, elegant and timeless, this is a no-brainer color for a polished work outfit. 

Cleaning Brushes | SEPHORA Solid Brush Cleaner

Tuesday, 16 September 2014


So just about everyone who wears makeup regularly knows (or should know!) how to clean their brushes, but I think most of us can agree that while necessary, it can be a pain to do. It is also the likely reason for your large makeup brush collection...*guilty face* Previously, I was using Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap, which worked perfectly fine, *but* when I spotted the Sephora Collection Solid Brush Cleaner ($14.00), I had to give it a go.

Graphic Nails | Fall 2014 (+ tutorial!)

Monday, 15 September 2014


This week's manicure is a little different - it was my birthday over the weekend (yay me!) and I wanted something a little special on my nails, and decided to go for a modern graphic look, variations of which many of you will have seen over New York Fashion Week. Usually, my nail posts are in the form a of a review, but today's post is short tutorial so that you can achieve the same look, if you like. 

The Daytime Contour

Thursday, 11 September 2014


I've found myself rocking a more contoured face over the past few days, and I thought I'd share my go-to products for achieving this look. Let me also preface this by saying; I'm no contour expect (I wish I was!), but I know a *little* something about accentuating those cheekbones, and what works for me may work for you.

SPACE NK | smoky rose candle

Wednesday, 10 September 2014


This is a quick 'shout-out' to one of my favorite candles (as we become more acquainted, the nature of my relationship with candles will become more apparent...they literally, light my fire - lol), SPACE NK's smoky rose candle ($45.00, 270g/9.45 oz). 

Dior VERNIS | Masai Red No. 853

Tuesday, 9 September 2014


This week's manicure is an old favorite - Dior's Masai Red ($24.00). The changing weather is definitely having an affect on me - last week the blazing temperature inspired me to have a look at summer scents, but this week it has definitely cooled down, and I am now making a beeline for autumnal tones. I've had this color for over a year, and only tend to wear it in the colder months. What I like about autumn colors is that they tend to be bolder and more dramatic, and Masai Red does not disappoint in this category.
