Throughout the month of October, I embarked on a bit of a colour journey, experimenting with colours, their concepts and tonal themes. Today, I’m sharing exactly how things unfolded…

The start of a new month means many, many things to people; time to pay rent and other bills for some, time for a new film or book to reflect on for those in monthly clubs, and for most, time to plan ahead and/or see what the new month has in store. But, let’s be real for a sec: I’m a beauty lover, hoarder, blogger, first and foremost, and while I should be doing all of the above as October edges its way in, the first thing on my mind is makeup (naturally). Now, if you’ve been around for a while here at the bylaws, you’ll know that I’m a big fan of lipsticks and lip glosses, and that I believe in the power of the tube and/or using different colours to completely change up one’s look. As it is October, the forecast calls for crisp fall days and bright orange, amber and red leaves crunching beneath our feet, and thus, I wanted my lipstick to reflect the change in weather and mood! #sweaterweather #hooray
So, let’s have a look at the lipsticks I’ve been wearing more and more of lately and what lipsticks will be sticking around for the rest of the month, shall we!? 🙂
When I first read about Urban Decay’s impending release of yet another “Naked”-themed product, I must admit, even I — the self-proclaimed makeup addict (seriously, y’all, please don’t call the producers at My Strange Addiction on me, I’d love to be on TV, but not in that fashion) — rolled my eyes with chagrin and sighed. “Again!? Seriously??” were among my first thoughts, along with several other, possibly R-rated thoughts with the words ‘greedy,’ ‘ballsy,’ and ‘bastards’ tossed in around the thought of the product developers at Urban Decay. However, I did my duty as a beauty blogger and I hustled online to check if it was in available on the Sephora website. As soon as I saw it, I clicked the little (but awfully dangerous) “add to basket” button and checked out. I didn’t expect to like it, and quite frankly, I expected to want and/or feel the need to return it to my local Sephora as soon as it arrived on my doorstep…but then it did and my life changed forever.
Hello, hello sweet friends, how are you today? 🙂 I hope you’re doing well and happy hump day! 🙂 So, I don’t know if you are aware of this, but I’ll be celebrating my 24th birthday this Friday (YAY!), and thus, I’ve been doing a little bit of beauty shopping. I shouldn’t be really, because there are numerous bigger budget items that I would like to/need to save for, but hey…a beauty addict’s gotta do what a beauty addict’s gotta do. 😉
About a week ago, I received the most lovely email from Sephora, saying that it was time for me to pick up my annual birthday freebie. This is, no joke, one of the best emails I receive in the entire year. In case you don’t know, Sephora has a dollar-for-point rewards program, so basically, that means that every dollar you spend will earn you a point. You can bank and use these points to redeem various rewards throughout the year, valued at 100 points ($100), 250 points ($250) or 500 points ($500), but another special little perk of being a “Beauty Insider,” (join here if you aren’t one already!) regardless of the amount of money you spend in Sephora, is the birthday gift . Now, it’s always a small gift and it varies throughout the world, but still, every year, on your birthday, you will get a little gift from Sephora on or around your birthday! How nice!
This year, I’ve heard that the gift is pretty good from friends who have celebrated their birthdays earlier in the year, so, naturally, I couldn’t wait to try it for myself! Well, I picked up my mini NARS lip pencil duo towards the end of last week (you know, in the midst of my beauty
hoarding shopping), and while I haven’t given them a “full” try, I wanted to share my preliminary thoughts, a mini review, if you will, with you today, as well as some thoughts on a dry shampoo that I picked up on Friday night that seems to be quite hyped at the moment. Question is, does it deserve the hype that it’s been getting? Hmmm…let’s find out, shall we!? 🙂
Hi friends, how’s it going!? As I haven’t been around in a while, happy June! Can you believe we’re already SIX, almost seven months into 2015!? I can’t! I hope the month is treating you well so far and here’s to the final third of it being completely AWESOME! 😀
A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of attending a Pink Garden party organized by one of my favourite bloggers, Amanda of Pink The Town. It was quite the event, with tons of pink and other feminine details around every corner (hello, I was in my element!) and plenty of fun activities to keep everyone attending occupied for hours on end. Today, I’m going to show you how much fun you missed out on and if you’re in the Toronto area, why you should attend Amanda’s next event! 😉

Whoa! Pump the brakes, there, girl! We're currently hard at work on creating an out-of-this-world shop for you to browse, but you'll have to hold on just a little bit longer....BUT, soon, my young padawan, soon! <3
