Lazy Day Hair | Double fishtail

This hairstyle is my favourite to wear on days where I have lots of errands to run and need to look put together with no effort. It’s super quick and easy and any one can do it! If you don’t have long hair, extensions will help you achieve the look.

Good luck



Step one:

After splitting your hair into two pieces, start braiding them into a fishtail.


Step two:

To make your fishtail look lush and full, pull them apart lightly so that there is texture in the braid.


Step three:

With some bobby pins, secure the sides of the braid to one another so that it creates one full braid.




Doe a Deer || Halloween Makeup

This Halloween look was so much fun to create and I’m so happy with the final result! I’ve seen lots of people do it and I wanted to give it a try and make it my own. If I was to go all out for a Halloween party I would definitely be rocking this makeup for the night, I love it!



Step one: After applying my regular foundation routine, I used white face paint and a beauty sponge and blended it around my eyes and the bridge of my nose.


Step two: This is where you can get creative. I used brown gel eyeliner and just mapped out where I wanted everything to go. Check out Pinterest for some other peoples Deer makeup.


Step three: Using a blending brush and a matte brown shadow, I then softened up the harsh lines of the eyeliner so that it looked more 3D.


Step four: Taking dramatic spiky lashes (this is optional) I then placed them under my eye to give the illusion of “doe eyes”. I also put a regular pair of lashes on my upper lid as well.


Step five: Taking the white face paint and the back of a brush, I placed spots on the highest part of my cheek bones and in the centre of my forehead.


Step six: To give that dark brown deer like colour, I took a really dark matte bronzer and really contoured my cheek bones and temples. This step would be better before the spots but I forgot, whoops!


Step seven: For your lip colour you really can choose anything you want but I kept it simple and actually used my eyebrow pencil to outline my lips then filled with Bobbi Brown Beige lipstick.


Hope you enjoyed. Good luck!


Weekend Wear: October

Since this blog is now being focused on beauty, hair, tips, tricks and tutorials I wanted to include monthly weekend and week fashion looks. This past weekend was super chill so no dressing up here. After uploading my Fall wish list I really wanted a pair of black distressed denim jeans so I found these ones at Garage and I could honestly live in them. I highly recommend getting them in a couple sizes smaller then your regular size since they are stretchy.

What did you guys get up to this weekend?




Shirt: Dynamite

Shawl/Scarf: Zara

Jeans: Garage

Booties: Sirens

Fall Wish List 2014

Well I thought I would put together a list of some things I’ve been REALLY wanting lately. Some are a realistic buy and some are what I WISH I could afford. Hope you enjoy!


1. Nike Roshe Run Sneakers


These sneakers are just so effortlessly cool and can really change the look of your outfit.

2. Asymmetric Leather Court Shoe in Nude (ZARA)


I’ve had my eyes on these babies for a couple weeks now and I think I’m going to take the plunge. You really can’t go wrong with a nude stiletto and best of all, it can be worn with almost anything.

3. Charlotte Tilbury’s Filmstare Bronze & Glow


This luxe product has been raved about recently and I really want to get my hands on it. It leaves such a soft and natural glow to the skin but also giving structure to the contours of the face.

4. Celine Mini Luggage in Black


Need I say anything? Saving starts now!

5. ASOS Ridley Jeans in Black


These with the Nike’s holding the Celine….

6. AERIN Amber Musk


This scent has to be one of my favourites lately. It’s woodsy with some vanilla and wears beautifully throughout the day. To be honest the bottle is what caught my attention, I love all the gem stones as lids. Definitely a collectors perfume.


Dead/Zombie Flapper Girl

Normally I’m not one to go all intense and scary on Halloween, but I thought I would do this pic-torial for the people out there who do! I know it’s not super hardcore, but it is very wearable and a fun twist on the look. Ill be putting up a couple more makeup looks for Halloween, so stay tuned!




Instead of white face paint I used a foundation that was very light. You can do either or but I wanted my face to look more natural.



With any black eyeshadow, layer it with a flat shader brush on your top lid right up to your crease. Take it also on your lower lash line then with a black gel eyeliner rim the upper and lower waterlines.



Taking chocolate from MAC (any warm tone brown will do) blend out the harsh edges and extend it to around your temple.



Using what was left on my brush from the eyeliner, make vein looking lines around the lower lash line. Make sure to be light handed with this so it looks as realistic as possible.



With a purple liner, line the inner corner of your eye and some of the lines you made for veins. **This is optional



Using Desert Rose blush from MAC, blend from your temple down into the hollows of your cheek. This will give you a “sickly” looking contour.



You can choose to wear any lipstick you want but I wanted something rich and dark so I used Joe Fresh “Plum Prune” and then MAC “night moth” on the outer corners to give my lips depth.




5 Faves : Fall Lipsticks

Tis’ the season to wear rich, bold and colourful lipsticks. What girl doesn’t appreciate a good vampy lip colour while holding a pumpkin spice latte, am I right? Today I want to focus in on my top 5 favourite lipsticks at the moment. All of these colours are great for Fall and cater to every type of person.



Guys, this has been in my purse for the last six months and I am still rocking it on a day to day basis. I love the rosey undertones and I seriously always get a compliment whenever I wear it. This colour is also a beautiful shade on brides. So, if your getting married and in the market for a great lip colour, I highly suggest this one!

*Fun fact: Kate Middleton wore this exact lipstick on her wedding day!



If your looking for something that isn’t too crazy but brings colour to your face, this shade is to die for. You can lightly tab it onto your lips for sheerer coverage and everyday use. This colour really looks awesome on all skin colours and really gives your look a colourful touch.



I love this colour because it’s so easy to wear. I feel like burgundy reds are so in for Fall and this one is perfect. I love that it has a glossy finish and doesn’t dry out your lips but makes them look lush and full. This colour is incredible when I’m at my palest because it contrasts so beautifully against my skin.



This is my go-to red. I am obsessed. It has blue undertones which will make your teeth appear whiter and is SOO easy to apply. The satin matte finish makes this lipstick stay on for a good 8 hours which is great for a work day. It compliments any skin tones that have cool or neutral undertones in it.

*Taylor Swift always rocks this lipstick!



I found this liquid lipstick while checking out at the grocery store, and I must say I’m pleasantly surprised. It lasts forever on the lips and has such a rich feel to it. It doesn’t dry up and crust on your lips but it feels like a satin finish. This is such a perfect colour for a vampy makeup look or if you want to try something a little more daring.


DIY: Balayage Highlights

Today’s post is for all those “at-home RISK takers”. Let’s be honest, getting our hair done at a salon can be hard on our bank accounts, and more then half the time we can’t tell any difference or it comes out looking like a train wreck. Sometimes doing your hair at home can be … well, even worse. But today I want to show you the way I Balayage BROWN hair and safe to say, it’s pretty fool proof.


 1)  Highlight Kit. I recommend Revlon Frost&Glow for brunettes

2) Several sheets of tin foil. This helps quicken the process of highlighting the hair since it keeps the heat altogether.

3) A purple toner. This is a MUST for any at home highlights. It tones the hair and gets rid of any brassiness.

3) Hair clips. This will help to section off your hair so it doesn’t become one big mess.

4) A brush OR comb.



Section off the hair in three parts. Right, left and back. Then starting with the back, section it off to where you want your highlights to begin.



The great thing about balayage is that you highlight WHEREVER you want. It’s supposed to look natural and effortless. Pick up a section of hair and with the parting tool you get in the kit weave in and out so you’re left with small strands of hair.



This step is probably the most important. If you just kept those strands of hair as is and applied the bleach you would be left with an awful strait line across, which is NOT cute. To avoid that, take your comb or brush and back comb the strands of hair so that your hair is uneven and you are left with a natural gradient.



After mixing the bleach together from the kit, take a sheet of tin foil and start applying the bleach onto the hair. Remember you want to add a generous amount so that every piece of hair is soaked up.



Make sure to fold the tin foil and tightly secure it around the hair so that it stays in place.



Continue to randomly select sections of hair and highlighting. I like to alternate the heights of where I start so that it doesn’t look fake. I also concentrated on putting a lot more highlights around the sides of her face so that it frames it nicely.



After waiting about 20-25 minutes (constantly open foils and check) wash out the bleach then apply the purple toner on all the highlighted strands. This takes away any brassiness and will leave behind a beautiful blonde. This particular toner only needs to be left on for 2-4 minutes.


Wash out, dry and style! Good Luck!



Updated Skincare Routine

My skin has hated me these past 6 months because I was trying to replace my old skincare routine with something less chemically based. Even though my old stuff worked, I didn’t love the ingredients that I was putting on my face. After many months of fighting bad skin with trying everything that was being recommend to me, I have finally found my holy grail routine. To make things easier with describing all the products, I have linked them to the site where you can purchase them and where they give a professional description of it.

Glam Fall Makeup (KIM K INSPIRED)

Soo I’ve taken a summer break from blogging for many different reasons and I’m glad to confidently say I’m back for good. I will be re-designing my blog and focusing more on hair, makeup, tips and tricks and tutorials. Can’t wait to get back at it.


Today’s pic-torial is of the makeup Kim K wore to the Givenchy show in Paris last week. I love the deep bronze colours and dewy skin so I had to do it. Thankfully my beautiful friend (should be a model) Erica volunteered her face for me and we got strait to work. This look is great for any fall occasion. Take and leave what you please.

Enjoy xo


Make sure you create a flawless base for your foundation. I mixed a Chanel foundation with my Nars tinted moisturizer to enhance Erica’s glow. Taking a concealer 2 shades lighter I then contoured her face in areas I wanted to highlight.

*It ain’t no Kim K look without a good contour! I used Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit



Taking a deep bronze colour I blended it all across her lid up to her brow bone. Keep blending and re-applying till you get your desired depth.  I then took vanilla pigment from MAC to highlight her brow bone and inner corner of her eyes.



Taking stubborn brown eyeliner from MAC I smudged it into her lower lash line and blended downwards. Since Kim is known for her glorious eyelashes I took a black liquid liner from NYX and finely lined the upper lash line right into the tear duct.



Using Make Up Forever lashes in 157 really helped achieving thicker looking lashes. Apply a couple coats of your favourite mascara on the upper and lower lashes. *Don’t be shy with the mascara!




To make Erica’s lips appear larger I over drew them with Stripdown lip liner from MAC and then filled in with a deep brown berry gloss.
