[Review] L'Oreal's Colour Riche Balm in Caring Coral (418)

 Good Afternoon Everyone!

I know I've been away from the blog a while, summer's starting to get busier for me as I'm starting full-time work next week. I am going to try to keep up with the blog as much as possible though :) For now, lets head on to the review!

This Past Week...

Foster the People at Downsview Park ♥

Hey Everyone!

I apologize for not posting at all last week. It was super busy and I didn't have a chance to update the blog :( However I am back and the blog will resume it's usual posts starting tomorrow!

Being busy also means that I didn't have a chance to go online much, so there really haven't been too many links that caught my eye this past week (as I barely used the computer).

How has your week been? 

New reviews will be up soon!


PS I bought the new Maybelline BB cream and so far I LOVE it! It's perfect for summer because it has SPF 30, I wore it to Wonderland on Friday and didn't get burnt at all. There will be a review on it after I use it for another week :)

Neutrogena's 60th Anniversary Sample Box

Hi Everyone! :)

A few days ago I received a package in the mail from Neutrogena Canada. Last month they were giving out packages with 5 samples/coupons in them in celebration of their 60th anniversary in Canada. You were able to choose which samples/coupons you wanted from a list. The package came in a cute little box filled with your samples. Thanks Neutrogena!

Beach Essentials

Good Afternoon! :)

Summer is here! It's hot, humid, and perfect for the beach! Here are some beach essentials that everyone should have before basking themselves under the sun on the sand.

From Left to Right:

1. Balea's Sunless Tan Clear Gel ($7, Shopper's Drug Mart) - this is for pre-beach prep!

2. Bikini Set ($10 / piece, Aeropostale)

3. Sunglasses ($7-$8, H&M)

4. Neutrogena's Ultra Sheer Sunscreen SPF 55 ($16,

The only thing I forgot to add in this picture is water! It's very important to keep yourself hydrated at all times, especially if you're under the hot sun and sweating throughout the day.

I'm going to Canada's Wonderland's water park in two weeks! I'm so excited because I haven't been in there for ages! It's going to be fun!

Are you hitting the beach anytime soon? What are some of your beach essentials?

These are a Few of my Favorite Things {June 10}

Good Afternoon!

It's Sunday! A cat nap was so necessary earlier this afternoon and the blog hit 2000 visits! Horray! Thank you so much everyone for checking my blog out! For now, here's this week's favorite things :)

Brand new posts!
} This week's Saturday's Adventures

Places that I loved this week:
} I've been thinking about crocheting some new place-mats for my home this week. Here are some ones that I've been thinking about trying: [Simple and Modern] [Pretty Country] [Delicate and Feminine] There's also a whole lot of place-mat ideas on various yarn websites. I headed out to buy some yarn today to start making them, can't wait to show you guys which one I decided on!

} This is finally a week that I'm able to catch up on the issues of The Kit, a free online magazine that has a huge focus on hair and beauty.
} How Do I Put This Gently? is one of my new favorite Tumblr blogs. So many of her posts relate to my life hahaha.

} Growing out your hair? Try these tips from Beauty Bets!

} I love Sweet Paul's blog and amazing photography skills with food. They'll be releasing a new desktop wallpaper weekly and I'm super excited!

} The Oatmeal had this hilarious post on the Pros and Cons of Living with your Significant Other. I can totally see Jim and I in a few of these situations if we did live together.

Tonight I will be DIY-ing my own mask with inspiration from [this] Yves Rocher Mask with Lemon Zest.

I'll be mixing some leftover lemon zest from the lemon poppy seed loaf recipe, witch hazel, and lemon. I'll tell you how it goes! :)

Momo says Hi! :)
Enjoy the rest of this beautiful weekend!

Saturday Adventures II

Good Afternoon Everyone! :)

I love a rich breakfast with a good cup of coffee and reading blogs and magazines early in the morning on weekends. Especially when it's after a nice long workout! It helps me relax and feel like it's really the start of the weekend :)

These are a few of my favorite things {June 3}

Home-baked Lemon Poppy Seed Loaf ♥

This has been an exciting week for the return of this blog!

Brand new posts!

Places that I loved this week:
} I love to crochet! All about Ami has a great tutorial on how to crochet slippers like the ones you see in this week's Saturday's Adventures post. 

} This beautiful necklace is next on my DIY to-do list:

} One of my favorite beauty blogs, Makeup and Beauty Blog, wrote a great review on Lush’s Buffy Body Butter Bar. Now I want one for myself.

} This handy dandy map for a possible future zombie apocalypse. 

} Would I ever love to stay in a tree house for my next vacation!

} Teachers should all blog when they’re this good.

} I discovered this fast and pretty hair trick just this afternoon. So perfect for the summer!

Holy moly did my Lemon Poppy Seed Loaf from yesterday turn out well! It is so delicious and if I can bake something as good as this from that recipe, then anyone can do it! (I am really not the best baker)

Hope you’re having a great weekend!

Saturday Adventures - June 2

A great day starts off with a great breakfast! Coffee, a sliced avacado, an over-hard egg topped with some black pepper, and a piece of toast with some organic almond butter. Best breakfast I've had for a while!
Hi readers!

Saturdays will officially be my days off from make-up talk and write a little about what my own Saturdays are like (they're usually pretty simple). I think that this will be a great way for you guys to know a bit about me, and what I'm like. Your comments will be so fantastic on these posts because I would also love to hear what your week or weekend was like too!

Now onto the post!

[Review] Garnier’s Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream in Medium/Dark

Hi Everyone!

So glad to be back and blogging! 

Garnier's BB cream review is a great kick-off as the first summer post. Since BB creams are the new "it" product in the beauty world, I hope this post will answer some questions and help you make a decision as to whether this BB cream, or BB creams in general, are the right for you!

Return of the Blogger II (For real this time!)

Delicious Looking Macarons in Fresh Summer Shades (image:

Good afternoon everyone!

It's finally June and I am officially back to blogging because my courses were all officially completed yesterday. I'm so excited to get back to blogging!

A long promised review of Garnier's BB cream will be up TODAY (I promise!) and there will also be lots more to come! (Philosophy's Purity Made Simple Cleanser, etc.)

I've also ordered new products and obviously tried out a ton of new products too, so there will be lots for me to review.

This is going to be an exciting, post-filled, and fun summer!
