may favourites

I know it's a little early for a May favourites but since I didn't do one for April I thought I would just combine the two. Hope you enjoy! 

I've talked about this before but Rosehip oil has been such a staple in my skincare routine these past two months. It's super moisturizing and helps fade older acne scars. I have been using the Touché Éclat concealer from YSL everyday and I really like it cause it's super brightening. Also, I have really liked the Pistachio Brûlée hand cream from Urban Outfitters cause it smells soo good!


Shoes have kind of been my clothing obsession this month and in particular heels and pool slides. I got the metallic pair for my prom from H&M but I'm excited to wear them dressed down with culottes. I also got a pair of fuzzy pink pool slides (not pictured) from Forever 21 which kind of look like the Rihanna Fenty ones, just more budget friendly!

6 Step Skin Care Routine

Recently I have been having the best skin of my life because I think I've finally figured out which products work best for me. For the longest time I thought I had combination skin but I went to a skincare consultation at Kiehl's I found out it's actually oily so I changed some things up. This is my 6 step skincare routine!
1. Cleanser

In the morning I use Lush's Angels On Bare Skin cleanser and at night I usually use Kiehl's Rare Earth cleanser but sometimes I use the Fresh Soy cleanser if I feel like double cleansing or if I need a break from exfoliating.
2. Mask

I don't always use face masks but I try to once or twice a week. I really like Kiehl's Rare Earth face mask because it's detoxifying and when I want to moisturize I use either Fresh's Rose face mask or Ren's Glycol Lactic face mask.
3. Toner

Toner is another step I don't always do but I try to as much as possible. I've been using Kiehl's Calendula toner because it's super ge…

april movie recommendations

Movies are one of my favourite things so I am constantly searching for new and interesting things to watch. I thought I'd share some of my favourites from recently! 
1. J'ai Tué Ma Mère

A French Canadian film about the strained relationship between a boy and his mother. If you haven't seen any of Xavier Dolan's films this is a good one to start with!
2. And While We Were Here

A couple struggling with their relationship go on vacation to Italy and what happens someone new comes into the picture. Every scene in this movie is absolutely gorgeous and I love everything about it.
3. Tanner Hall

A group of girls attending a private school and what kind of trouble they manage to get up to. If you like this movie you might also like  Private School which is an iconic 80's movie.
4. The Dreamers

Quite possibly the coolest french film ever even though most of it is in english. If you like independent films you'll love this one. 
5. Beira Mar (Seashore)

I love this movie so much eve…


I hope you enjoy this little outfit post for spring that I put together. I've really been liking graphic tees/crewnecks lately just cause they super easy and go with pretty much everything!

my favourite lip products

Recently I've discovered that I actually like wearing lipstick because it can really add something to your makeup look! I thought I'd show you some of the ones I've been wearing and loving recently.

YSL Rouge Pur 01
(aka the ultimate red)

Cle Melting Lip Powder Hot Choco
Rosebud Lip Salve
Menthol & Eucalyptus Lip Balm

The two things I've been wearing the most lately are the Rouge Pur Vernis à Lèvres Glossy Stains from YSL. They have really pretty colours, they're moisturizing and they last for a long time!
YSL Vernis à Lèvres 12
YSL Vernis à Lèvres Pop Water 203

Riddle Fragrance Oils

I recently got the chance to try out some of the Riddle Fragrance Oils and I thought I'd share some of my thoughts on them since perfumes and fragrance are one of my favourite things.

I'm gonna start with the Original scent because it is my absolute favourite! This is such a subtle fragrance but every time I wear it I can't stop smelling my wrists! 
Check it out here

Poppy is the perfect spring fragrance because it's really fresh and floral! 
Check it out here
All their scents work with your body's chemistry to create the scent that works for you which is pretty cool! If you want to check out any of their other fragrances I'll put a link here

flared feat. re/done

Flared jeans are not something I usually wear, I like to stick to my comfort zone aka skinny jeans but when I saw this pair from Re/Done I was so excited! They have all these details (two toned leg and pockets) that just make them feel so much cooler! Each pair is one of a kind and made from recycled levis!
Definitely check out their website, I'll put a link here

march favourites

Hi guys! This month has been pretty busy with school and university visits but also pretty exciting! Here are some of the things I've been loving in March.

I got a few cute things from Bit x Brown recently and I have been wearing them nonstop! The necklace is super adorable cause it has my initials on it (you can customize them!) and the rings are really great layering pieces! I'll put a link to the website here

The Replica Beachwalk perfume has been a staple this month and probably will be all summer!

I've been all about having glowy skin recently which means moisturizer and lots of highlighter! I've been loving using eye creams at night because it really helps reduce bags. Also, the Josie Maran Pure Argan oil is a really great face moisturizer!
