a last minute gift guide

Image
Exams are almost over and I've been watching lots of Christmas movies and listening to my Christmas playlist on repeat for a few months now so I thought I'd put together a last minute gift guide! I always love scrolling through other peoples gift guides and find them super helpful so hopefully, this one will give you some ideas!
Under $25

One of my favourite lip products is the Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb(C$23). It comes in three different colours that are all super flattering for all skin tones! They look really good by themselves and also layered on top of other lip products!

Candles make such a good gift and the Gourmand Candlesfrom Urban Outfitters (C$16) are amazing! 


I would be happy with getting anything from Glossier as a gift but the Balm Dot Coms (C$15), in particular, are really amazing! Especially coconut and birthday cake! 
ps, you can get 10% off your first Glossier order with my link: https://re.glossier.com/097eea4f:)

I can't believe it's almost the end of the semester already, exams are coming way too fast!
I'll definitely be posting a gift guide soon but in the meantime, I thought I'd share a few things I've been loving from this month!
ps, this blog post was sponsored by EOS and Her Campus Media! All opinions and thoughts are my own as always!

Beauty

I've been doing a lot of face masking this month and my favourites have been the AHA Brightening Maskfrom Dr Roebuck's and the Mega Greens Galaxy Packfrom Glossier. They're such a good duo to detoxify and brighten!



Keeping my skin super moisturized is super important to me in these colder months so I've been relying on a few products from EOS to do that! The Vanilla Bean Lip Balmand Tropical Mango Lip Balmboth smell amazing and are super easy to throw into my bag or pocket when I'm heading out. The Pomegranate Raspberry Shaving Creamhas been keeping my legs so smooth especially since it has shea butter in it! It al…

a few products i've been loving lately

Fall is finally here and I can't believe it's already midterm season! To procrastinate studying I thought I'd put together a post of some things I've been loving lately!
Fragrance

Glossier Youis my go-to scent for the fall season! It smells really clean, warm and super subtle which I love!
Lazy Sunday Morning is a scent that I unironically love to wear on Sundays. It truly smells exactly how the perfect Sunday feels!

Another scent I've been loving lately is Pistachio Brûléefrom Urban Outfitters! It smells really sweet and warm so it's perfect for sunnier days!

Makeup




My makeup lately has been pretty simple! Usually, I use the Clé Cosmetics CCC CreamGlossier Cloud Paintin puff or haze, Glossier Lidstarin lily or slip and the YSL Tint-in-Balmin 01.

I've also been obsessed with the BH cosmetics ItsMyRayeRaye Palettefrom Urban Outfitters! It has the perfect shades for fall (mousse, control freak, and tiffany are my favs!)

I kind of can't believe it's already July and summertime! I've been off from university for a few months now and I've been doing a lot of relaxing and also preparing to move into my first apartment in August which I'm super excited about! I've been picking up a lot of cute home decor pieces so I'm planning a post for that but in the meantime..here are my June favourites!

Beauty


I've been really into blush and highlighter lately, more specifically the Milk Makeup Blush Oil in Crave and the Liquid Strobe in Aura . They blend super easily and the colours are so pretty!

My favourite summer fragrance is Beach Walksince it reminds me so much of being at the beach. It smells like sunscreen and sunshine (if sunshine had a scent lol).

My skincare favourites from June are both Caudalie products! The Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbetis so hydrating and smells amazing and the Grape Wateris perfect for super hot days since the mist is so fine and soothing.

stylekorean: glowing clover review

Image
I recently got the chance to try and review some products from the website Stylekoreanwho have a huge selection of korean skincare and makeup from various brands! I have been slowly getting into kbeauty recently so this was a great chance to try out some different things!

Benton Tea Tree Cleansing Water
I really like using this cleansing water since it is super soothing and hydrating! I use it after cleansing with Glossier's Milky Jelly to make sure all my makeup is off. It also smells amazing (as does pretty much everything in this post haha)

Hyggee All-In-One H2 Soap
I wasn't a huge fan of this soap mostly because I don't think bar products are the greatest thing to use on your face (it just doesn't seem that sanitary) although my skin did feel super clean and soft after using it.

Heimish All Clean Green Foam Cleanser
This cleanser is one of my new favourites! It's great for the morning since it leaves my skin feeling hydrated. I also love the texture since it starts a…

spring wish list

It's almost the end of the semester for me which means I'll be able to go home soon and enjoy the spring weather (which is non-existent since there is currently an ice storm as I'm writing this). I thought I'd put together my current wish list which is full of some very spring inspired items!

march favourites

March is already over which is kind of crazy since I'll be finishing my first year of university in the next couple weeks and moving out of my dorm room! I put together a list of a couple of the things I enjoyed from last month which mostly consists of skincare and music.

Beauty


The lovely people from Wishtrend sent me the new Klairs Supple Preparation Unscented Toner and I have been obsessed with! It's super hydrating which is great since my skin has still been pretty dry lately from the weather. The texture is really cool since it seems really thick in the bottle but it comes out watery and absorbs into the skin so nicely (no sticky feeling!) I also really like how it's unscented since it can be overwhelming when a lot of the products you're using in your routine all have a different scent.

I'm still obsessed with Glossier Solutioncause it has worked so well for my skin! I obviously still g…
