Manicure Monday - Butter London + Pantone 2018 Color of the Year Nail Lacquer "Ultra Violet"

Happy Manicure Monday everyone! I think I did a purple manicure last month; but, really, you should expect purple to pop up a fair bit around here as Ultra Violet is the Colour of the Year! And, while I will try and incorporate the colour in to make up looks - it just screams nails to me and looks so good on them! 

Butter London + Pantone 2018 Color of the Year Nail Lacquer in "Ultra Violet" ~ $10.00 US/$12.49 CAN. Butter London is proud to partner once again with Pantone, the Global Color Authority, to introduce the Color of the Year 2018. Meet Ultra Violet, a provocative purple that speaks volumes and takes us to a place where imagination runs wild. Leave it to Butter London to bring you an extraordinary collection packed with sophisticated colors and dreamy textures inspired by Ultra Violet's magical thinking. Look beyond the ordinary and check out violet's new vibe.

I didn't realize that Butter London partnered with Pantone to create a Colour of the Year line; but, not only does the line include 6 polishes in varying shades of purple, it also includes lip glosses, liquid lipsticks, eye gloss and eye liner! There is some really pretty shades in this whole collection!

Five on Friday - February 16, 2018

Happy Friday everyone!!! I hope you all had a great week! I'm sorry it's been a bit quiet around here this week! If you read my last Five on Friday post then you know I'm currently in full on study mode for a job interview next week and I'm quite nervous about interviews, so my free time has been a little consumed by that!


I love crazy and weird masks so much! This Dr. Jart Shake & Shot Rubber Mask looks hilarious and strange and amazing! I was drawn to the colours of the Firming Mask - if you can believe when I was a teenager, my room looked just liked these colours! I had a bright purple ceiling and orange walls.

Gummiband Hair Cords - Review + A Special Offer!

So, I'm really late to the game trying hair cords - just about everyone I know was using them and raving about them; but, I was still using regular elastics forever. I think mainly, I have fine and thin hair so I didn't think something thick and plastic would actually work well in my case - but, Gummiband hair cords say they work for all hair types so I was happy to try them out! 

Gummiband Hair Cords - Review + A Special Offer!

The Gummiband hair cords are hypoallergenic - they don't absorb water or sweat so they don't get all gross and bacteria-y! They are gentle on hair so can reduce styling damage (who else despises a pony-tail bump?!) and they reduce breakage as well. They are useable for years - if they start to stretch, just warm them up with a hair dryer or hot water and it goes right back down; plus, Gummibands come with a one-year warranty!

ColourPop Take Me Home Pressed Powder Shadow Palette - Review, Swatches and Makeup Look!

I have made no secret of the fact that I love mini palettes! If it comes in mini size, chances are that I will pick it up! There is just something so convenient about the little sizes - the shades all go together, making eye looks really easy. They are perfect when you don't have a lot of time to think about what shadows you should use, they travel well and are really handy! 

ColourPop Take Me Home Pressed Powder Shadow Palette - Review, Swatches and Makeup Look!

I picked up ColourPop single shadows when they were released; but, I haven't yet picked up any of the full sized shadow palettes yet so I was excited to see the mini palette on the Sephora website when ColourPop came to Sephora. I scooped it up immediately!

Five on Saturday - February 10, 2018

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you all have had a great week - my week started out busy; but, it slowed down later this week because we are getting slammed with snow here in Calgary! Like slammed - we're talking over 1 foot of snow on top of what has already accumulated here! Ugh - I'm ready for Spring! 


So, it's almost Valentine's Day and if you guys are looking for a super casual, easy makeup look, then I have an awesome Glitter Lip makeup look from last year that I loved so much! There is something about a full glitter lip that looks so fun and so glam - I absolutely loved doing this! 

The main products in this look are Lit Cosmetics glitter in Firecracker, Too Faced Glitter Glue Shadow primer and Lit Cosmetics glitter base, and the lipstick underneath is ColourPop Lippie Stix in Poppin and NYX Liquid Suede in Kitten Heels!
