Gift Guide for Her 2016

Christmas is just around the corner (FYI it's one of my favourite times of the year :) )! Christmas also means gift-giving, and I find it so fun finding the perfect gift for my friends and family. I've compiled this guide to help you find a gift for her, and most of them I'm actually getting for the ladies in my life. Hope this will help and inspire your Christmas shopping. A gift guide for him is coming soon!

Fresh Sugar Lip Seduction (Holiday Set)

What's better than having nourished, moisturized lips with a beautiful tint of colour? Well, this Sugar Lip Seduction* holiday set containing the Sugar Lip Treatments by Fresh would be an awesome gift for the ladies who are intimidated by lipsticks and glosses, who you want to treat with quality lip products, or ladies who don't want to think too hard about what to wear on their lips in the morning as they're rushing out the door (aka me).

Morning Routine

This post is in collaboration with fellow blogger and dear friend Robyn! Check out her morning routine over on her blog Every Small Endeavour! All photos are shot by the bf Clarence :) (check him out at his Instagram @thebabylens!).

When I do have a day off work, I enjoy taking it slow in the morning.

Chorus Supernatural

Your skin has to work with the products that you use, and that's why my skincare routine doesn't change often. However, after trying out these three products from Canadian brand Chorus Supernatural, some of them may actually make it into my routine as a regular product!

Life Lately

What I've been up to lately:

I went to Allan Gardens for the very first time in Downtown Toronto! It was lovely, almost like a little jungle within the city. It was a nice day off from work and I got to spend it with good company. It also happened to be a friend's birthday on the same day! :)

Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eyeliner

It's so troublesome for me to find a good eyeliner. With my oily lids, pencil and gel liners easily smudge or fade on me (if you know any that will not to do that, let me know in the comments below!!). Thus, liquid liners are the ones that I usually purchase, but even still it truly has to be one that can stay on well for the entire day.

Earlier this month I did the $10 makeup challenge (you can read here!) and I didn't have an eyeliner that was within the budget. I made a trip to Walmart and randomly picked up this one: Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eyeliner. To my surprise, it's actually REALLY GOOD.

Eye Post # 10: Which Contact Lenses Should I Wear?!

Many people have asked me to help them out in their dilemma regarding contact lenses (CL): which one should they wear? It's important to have a CL fitting done by an optician because they can determine whether or not you are a suitable candidate for CL wear based on a physical examination of your eyes. In addition, the optician takes the necessary measurements and tests to determine which CL is right for you, along with information on your lifestyle, job, and hobbies. You can use the information provided in my post as an overview to the different CL types. :)
