best of 2017: skincare edition

This year is almost over which is kinda crazy but I thought I'd put together a list of my favourite products from 2017! This is the skincare edition and I'll hopefully have the makeup edition up in a few days!

Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser
This is my favourite everyday cleanser since it's super gentle and gets the job done. Plus it smells super good and I really like the texture and the fact that you can use it with a wet or dry face!
Kiehl's Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleanser
I had to include two products in this category because I don't think I could ever just use one. I use this one from Kiehl's about once or twice a week to exfoliate since it has more of a gritty texture.

Face Masks
Kiehl's Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Mask
Again I couldn't just choose one face mask cause they all do something different. This has been my favourite detoxifying mask for when my skins been breaking out or just feeling super oily.
Fresh Rose Face Mask
I love this face mask…

fall essentials

Fall is one of my favourite seasons because of the fashion but also for the holidays and everything that goes along with them. Here are some of my fall essentials!

Fall Jacket

I just got this coat a few days ago and I've already worn it so many times! I think it's just a really good wardrobe staple and goes with pretty much everything.
Camel Coat
Face Masks

Fall weather is perfect for lazy sundays spent with a face mask on and watching the new season of stranger things! I've been loving the Blue Tansy mask from Herbivore Botanicals since resurfacing and detoxifying masks are my go to's.

Cream Eye Shadow

I have been using the Jillian Dempsey Lid Tint in Bronze non stop since I got it cause it is such a pretty colour and is so easy to use! I was also super excited when I got it since it was on ITG's top 25 list this year.

fall denim

Denim is my ultimate wardrobe staple. It's classic and makes every outfit look effortless. I thought I'd show you some of the ways I'm wearing denim this fall!

My go to jeans as of recently have been these High Rise Ankle Crops from Re/Done's original collection! They're super comfy and they go with everything! My favourite way to wear them is with a tucked in white graphic tee and my Old Skool Vans. 
I'll leave a link to Re/Done's website here!If you're looking for a good investment pair of jeans that will last you for a long time definitely check out their collection!

Denim jackets are also a huge fall staple for me! Maybe I'm biased cause I live in Canada and that's all anyone wears here (I'm kind of joking but not really) but I think it's the perfect jacket for fall! I love wearing them with culottes and a white tee or with black jeans and a cozy sweater.
If you want links to anything else just let me know! Xx Taylor

home decor haul (featuring society 6)

For those of you who didn't know I recently started university and moved out for the first time into a dorm room. I thought I'd show you some of the pieces I picked up for back to school!

Stationary is one of my favourite things to collect cause truly you can never have too many notebooks. I absolutely loved picking out these two from Society 6 cause I love the designs and I love how the company supports artists.

One of the things I was most excited about when decorating my dorm was picking out artwork for the walls. I think these prints just add so much to an otherwise boring white wall.
Dancers print
Roses print

The last thing I got was this mug which is just a great essential, and it's super pretty!

Some Recent Skincare Favourites

The summer went by so quickly this year and last week I actually moved in to my dorm room at university so sorry I haven't posted in a while. I've been trying out some new skincare recently so I thought I'd show you some of my favourites.

One of my favourite fragrances is Replica Beach Walk from Maison Margiela and I was so excited to hear that they expanded the line to include a Shower Gel, Body Oil and Body Lotion. I love how each of the products work together to keep the fragrance on all day long!

Beach Walk Dry Body Oil

The Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser has been a staple in my skincare routine since I got it because it's super gentle but takes off all your makeup! I have also been loving the Glossier Mega Greens Galaxy Pack which is a detoxifying face mask (aka my favourite type of face mask).
