SIMPLE, EASY & FAST Natural Makeup Tutorial!

Only have ten minutes to get ready? NO PROBLEM!

Seriously though, there have been far too many times where I pick up my phone in the morning, browse through my Facebook feed and then suddenly 30 minutes have gone by and I haven't even eaten yet (hey, I'm one of those breakfast-is-important people)! And so this is my routine when I have very little time.

The only thing I would do differently is use a different lip product. The Cheekroom lip palette is suitable for younger girls I think. It's nice but I think there are so many other products out there that are better with a better price point also. I received this from one of my Meme boxes (won't be getting any more of those... hmph *bitter*).

Your feedback is appreciated. Let me know if there's anything you'd like to see me record. :)

I love circle lenses. I really do. I reviewed them a lot in the past but each time it took a while to put in and I'd never keep them in longer than an hour (if I even got to that time). I'm not sure if my eyes are just super sensitive or it's too much of a shock for me to have these foreign substances in my eyes.

I tried a pair of gorgeous lenses from recently that they sent me to review. I got both in but my right eye which has always been my problem eye, just wasn't happy.

It comes in the really pretty box with instructions on the back. I personally find that putting lenses in that way isn't as easy as some other methods out there but find whatever works for you! I was sent a brown pair (I admit, I do have a preference to green/grey/purple colours) and have green/blue eyes.

They're manufactured by Klenspop themselves and I think these would look stunning on brown coloured eyes. They're a nice honey colour so they'll warm up you look.

 Ah, the more I look at them the more I'm upset at my sensitive eyes... it's okay.. *repeats*

Here is the lens in my good eye!

No problems here! Looks pretty cool to see myself with a honey brown colour tbh. I didn't add mascara yet because I wanted to get both lenses in first (didn't want any fibres to get in my eye while putting them in).

They still look really natural on my eyes! That's an issue I always had with lenses, you could so easily tell I was wearing them because it would be too much of a contrast between my eye and the lens, but this blends really nicely to my eye.

Don't get me wrong, I love my eye colour but I really like this brown. When they first told me they were going to send me this pair I was actually a bit bummed because I didn't think brown would suit me. I was wrong.

Here's a picture of two in, I rushed to take a photo before it was too uncomfortable. lol

Comfort: The left eye lens was very comfortable to wear. It felt light and you could tell there was good water moisture. I could not keep the right eye lens in for more than a few minutes though this has happened almost every time I try circle lenses and I believe this is not an issue due to the manufacturer.

Design/Enlargement: B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L. I believe they would blend nicely with all eye colours. They're 13.8mm so not huge but I actually prefer this size (or smaller). I think going too big ends up making you look like an alien.

If you're new to circle lenses, please, PLEASE research them. Look into proper care for them and go speak to your optometrist about any questions you may have!

These lenses sell for $13.00 and can be purchased HERE.

Canadian/Korean/Japanese Gift Swap! Trying Green Tea Kit Kats for the First Time!!!

Aaand the video is up!!! You know what that means right?

NO PUNISHMENTS! I'm not even sorry.

Although I admit, the ones I got seemed pretty fun to do. So, here is an unboxing video of a gift Sam from Colour Crush sent me! We've been friends since I started blogging and she's someone I've consistently kept in contact with even during my hiatus. She's a wonderful blogger and does a lot of really amazing reviews so you should definitely check her out!

and for your easy viewing pleasure, this is her video! I got green tea kit kats and ALL THE HYPE I'VE HEARD ABOUT THEM ARE ABSOLUTELY WORTH IT. Like, I actually ate them all while filming this.. and now I'm sad... but then I remember I can actually buy them here too! ;)

I had a lot of fun putting this together, I really enjoy buying gifts for friends! I definitely need to learn some packing skills from Sam though. Also that you should always tape your post-its to the item BECAUSE THE WILL NOT STICK AFTER TRANSIT! ><

So enjoy! Feedback is welcomed and of course, SUBSCRIBE!!!

2015 Nail Art Trends

I have an on-again-off-again love relationship with nail art. I love, love, love nail design and having nice pretty nails but I'm always pretty fuss free and can't be bothered to clean up polish or chipped nails. TY shellac/gel because you really make things easier on me.

Recently (thanks to's Martina doing a post on her fantastic nail artist, Sunny) I've follow back in love. I've been looking into doing my own acrylics because... well why not? I'm not terrible at nail art and liked the designs I used to make back in the day. I was highly influenced by Japanese nail art so they were different than what you'd see in N.America (think jewels, lots of them!!) but those trends are kind of trickling in. Anyway, we'll see how it goes. I'm still doing more research and have only purchased some new gel polishes that I'm excited to try out and review!

Here are some spring nail trends that I'm very into done by some awesome Instagramers!
