What’s your weekend shoe situation? Try style with Sanuk!

I’m wondering if you are like me and have those days where you need to do a lot of running or even some lounging but may have to go outside.  What kind of shoe do you wear on THOSE types of days? Do you suck it up and drag out your boots or running shoes and socks?  Do you say screw it and throw your foot into a flat even though you’re in your yoga pants?

You should be watching……

Hi all, I haven’t posted in a bit….life has been taking most of my time. So I thought I would fill this space with something constructive.  I know on some of the Facebook groups that I belong to, people will ask for new YouTube channels or blogs to read?  Well have I got one for you…..

I have been a fan of Julie in DC for a while.  Lately I’ve been loving her more….and it’s because of her YouTube channel. Her last 2 videos have been a huge hit and incredibly helpful to me. So I thought I would share-check out her videos on lip contouring (yes that’s a thing) and making your dark eye circles disappear and concealing under the eye.

I highly recommend watching and following along (and no she’s not paying me to say this)!

Ho Ho Holidays are coming-what will YOU wear? How about Gerry Weber?

I find myself getting more and more into fashion when Autumn & Winter roll around.  I like the idea of wearing layers and more clothing. It’s never too early for me to start my holiday preparations!  Check out the latest in Holiday Chic from Gerry Weber.  My favorite is Fireside cozy (but maybe not the winter white pants, as I AM a bit slovenly).  What’s your favorite?

My new BFF-Marcelle Instant Eye Makeup remover

*I received this product for review.*

One of my favorite ‘looks’ for my face is what I like to call a ‘heavy lash’ -just very thick, luscious lashes.  In the past, I’ve used lash extensions to achieve this and while pleased with the results, was never happy with the maintenance (combing, brushing, not being able to place eye makeup near them, having to be mindful of sweating too much, etc).  I am a huge fan of mascara and have SO many different types-fiber, tube, curling, volumizing, lengthening, volumizing AND lengthening.

So when you’re like me and you like a LOT of LASH, taking it all off at the end of the day can be a daunting task.  It’s a 2-3 step process that includes multiple products like oils, wipes, creams and a TON of cotton. It’s also a time suck-I am familiar with the 10 minute eye makeup removal process.

Enter in my new BFF from Marcelle-lazy girls, this one’s for you. No more excuses about taking off your makeup at night.  eyemakeupremover

Oh where have you been all my days?  This product WORKS and there’s not much more to say….it is truly instant and I love it.  I’m more than halfway through the bottle and starting to panic.  It doesn’t irritate my eyes, there’s no fragrance.  I hold it over my eye for 10 seconds, then wipe.  That’s it.   Here’s my results after holding a cotton pad over one eye (with the product on the pad):

Can’t say anymore than I have.  I adore this product and will use it and use it and use it.  When I run out, I’ll buy it again.  I suggest you do the same.

Annabelle Smokey Nudes Eyeshadow Palette

*This product was sent to me for review*

smokey nudes

From Annabelle:

Can’t get enough of the nude trend? We can’t either! This palette is the ultimate in versatility thanks to its minimalist and ultrafresh shades. With its mix of warm, cool, dark and light, you can create the perfect look for your skintone. Keep it simple with an “I’m not really trying” by day, or go with an intense smoky eye by night. Go ahead and play!

Key features:

  • Perfume and paraben free
  • Hypo-allergenic
  • Tested under ophthalmological control

My thoughts:

This palette from Annabelle is a great addition to any makeup lovers collection! It is light, portable and versatile in terms of color.  The shadows blend well and have a decent wear time (with a primer).  Plan to apply with a separate eyeshadow brush-although the palette comes with one, I like bigger eyeshadow brushes and fluffy crease brushes to blend these.

This palette has a suggested retail of $12.95 CAD
