This years theme is #madforplaid and I’ve been giving some outfit inspiration so you have an idea of what to wear. I want to accommodate all styles and every person so todays look is great for that right from work/business woman. You can never go wrong with a fitted blazer and pointed toe pumps. This outfit is great if you know you’re going to be having a long day at work but still fit the theme later on at the event.

Stay tuned for another outfit inspiration and even a hair & makeup tutorial!

Campfires & Cocktails Charity Event || 2 Ticket GIVEAWAY!!

HEY GUYS!

Todays post is something I’m super excited about and that really means a lot to me. Camp was something that really changed my life around and contributed to making me into the person I am today. Working at Muskoka Woods was an experience and memory I’ll never forget. Meeting lots of people that have become close friends of mine, teaching kids different skills and spending an unforgettable summer on the most beautiful lake. I couldn’t imagine a life without camp and think everyone should experience it.

That being said, Campfires & Cocktails is a Toronto based charity event that celebrates Camp and all its goodness.

ABOUT THE NEIL LOVATT MEMORIAL FUND

The Neil Lovatt Memorial Fund was established in 2002 as an initiative of the Southill Glen Foundation and the Muskoka Woods Youth Foundation (MWYF) to raise funds to send economically disadvantaged youth to summer camp.

Each year, the NLMF sends over 120 deserving youth, from priority neighborhoods, for a memorable week at Muskoka Woods. In partnerships with organizations like UrbanPromise, Youth Unlimited, One Voice One Team and the Salvation Army, 1,393 children have attended camp who could not otherwise afford it.

Foundations || Full coverage and long wearing

How is everyone?!  I know I’ve been forgetting to post lately but I’ve been focusing on Youtube (elanna pecherle) a lot but I’m going to try to post once a week on here until I sort out my schedule. I’m going to focus on a lot more reviews on new products so that you guys can see if you want to purchase and give it a go. What are you guys wanting to see more of? Comment and let me know 🙂

Today I’m focusing on my 3 favourite foundations that are FULL coverage and long wearing. They all are absolutely fantastic but I love them for different reasons. Hopefully this is helpful for you guys and especially because we are coming into warmer weather and we want our foundation to last as long as possible.

Maybelline FIT ME Matte and Poreless Foundation

_MG_5078

Price: $8.00 – $10.00

Where to buy: Shoppers Drug Mart, Wal-Mart and Rexall

This foundation is a winner in my eyes for a drugstore foundation. It’s rich formula blends out flawlessly on the skin leaving no streaks. What I love best about this foundation is that you don’t need to wear a primer with it. It smooths out the skins texture and leaves a flawless finish. The colour range is great and it lasts a long time on the skin. For even longer wear try the FIT ME powder to set with. The combo of both products is heavenly if you have oily skin.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation

_MG_5080

Price: $40.00 – $44.00

Where to buy: Select Shoppers Drug Mart, The Bay and Sephora

This is my all time fave foundation. On days where I know it’s going to be long and filled with little mirror time (touch ups) I know I can count on this foundation to keep it together for me. The foundation is thick but I always use it with a beauty blender and it’s the perfect consistency. A little goes a long way with this stuff but I promise you that you’ll fall in love. It isn’t too drying but doesn’t make you look too “glowy”.

NARS Luminous Weightless Foundation

_MG_5079

Price: $50.00 – $57.00

Where to Buy: The Bay, Sephora and Holt Renfrew

Yes, this foundation is way too expensive but you use the SMALLEST amount and it’s a beautiful finish. If you have oily skin, this will be your saving grace. It’s a super watery consistency and one pump can give a natural finish, two pumps is heavenly. I know I’ll be loving this stuff in the summer when my skin is over its dry patch stage (clings to any dry skin so exfoliate).
