  • Tarte Custom Beauty Kit 2017.

    I was so disciplined in my holiday spending and then, while scrolling Facebook, I came across a very tempting offer from Tarte: a chance to build my very own Tarte Custom Beauty Kit for the cool price of USD$63/CAD$84! I was quite skeptical at first, thinking that all I was going to get were a nice makeup bag, a couple… Read the Post

  • Overnight in Wadi Rum | Sleeping in the Desert.

    An experience I just had to have when visiting Jordan a few months ago, was to camp overnight in Wadi Rum, the famous desert in Jordan that might be familiar to you because it is often used in Hollywood movies. If you’ve seen Lawrence of Arabia, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen or The Martian, you will recognize some of the… Read the Post

  • Sephora VIB Sale 2017 Part 2.

    Cue the big “Oops” moment because your gal accidentally made several additional orders in the last days of the Sephora VIB sale 2017 because happily, some of the items that I had been lusting after, were finally restocked on the website! The good news is that most of the items I bought are gifts as well so those spending wasn’t… Read the Post

  • Crossing the Israel Jordan Northern Border (Jordan River Crossing / Sheikh Hussein Bridge) | October 2017.

    Deciding to undertake a fairly ambitious plan of travelling to both Israel and Jordan, I knew it would involve crossing one of the three land borders the two countries share. Flying was out of consideration given that flights between the two cities had an eye-watering price tag of $500+. I knew visiting the mystical city of Petra and camping in… Read the Post

Givenchy Noir Couture Waterproof Mascara.

Recently, the Givenchy Noir Couture Waterproof Mascara ($35, available here) became available at Sephora in Canada. It was like the Gods of Mascara have answered my prayers for a waterproof version of my all-time favourite Noir Couture mascara which I reviewed earlier. A mascara ranks highly on my must-have, and must-wear makeup product when I leave the house. It doesn’t…

Givenchy Le Rouge Lipstick | Review.

I recently come across a red lipstick that I have fallen head over heels on, the Givenchy Le Rouge Couleur Intense in 304 Mandarine Boléro ($38, available here) from the “Les Créations” colour palette. There’s nothing that makes a woman feel more alive, sexy and sassy as a red lipstick. I spoke about getting my first red lipstick a while…

Lush Angels on Bare Skin Cleanser | Review.

The Lush Angels on Bare Skin Cleanser ($9.95, Lush Stores) is the first facial cleanser that I’ve tried from Lush. I actually forgot about this sample for a long time and I pretty much let it sit in my shelf for 3 weeks in my room, where the temperature fluctuated a lot depending on the weather in Toronto at the…

How To Sanitize Makeup!

While cleaning your makeup brushes is an oft repeated message that every girl sticks to, I rarely hear anything about taking the time to sanitize makeup. For the longest time, I did not even know that I needed to ever “clean” my makeup. My epiphany came when I realized that I wanted to apply a lipstick that I haven’t used…

Givenchy Noir Couture Mascara.

My faith in high-end mascaras is renewed with the Givenchy Noir Couture Mascara ($35, available here). I never typically purchase high-end mascaras because when doing the math, I could never justify the price per use of such mascaras. I have been using this for the last couple of months and can really attest to its effectiveness at delivering what it…

MAC Lady Danger | My First Red Lipstick.

If you have been following my tweets recently, you know that I have been on a quest to find the Scarlet Ibis lipstick from the Iris Apfel collection. This iconic shade, coupled with its packaging and inspiration is simply a must-have! Since I have not been very successful, I opted for a similar shade from MAC Cosmetics’ permanent line, and…
