The Best Drugstore Beauty Products are…

The Best Drugstore Beauty Products are…

Happy Monday!

I am heading into a crazy two weeks with my event planning job, but I still want to post a few times, so today, I am sharing a YouTube video from one of my favourite beauty vloggers. She is sharing her all-time favourite drugstore products, and since I agree with almost everything, I thought I’d share this with you!

You already know that the Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso and the L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara are my holy grail products, so keep watching to see what else you should try from your local drugstore (all items are listed in the description box if you don’t have time to watch the full video).

There are a few products I haven’t tried yet, which I will definitely pick up when I’m in Florida at the end of the month (specifically the NYX Angel Veil Primer, the Milani Eyeshadow Primer and the ELF Blush). I’ll be sure to let you know what I think!

Fall Shopping Wish List

Fall Shopping Wish List

After a few weeks to colder weather under my belt, I’m starting to realize what’s missing in my wardrobe. These are a few things I’m looking to purchase in the near future:

1- Ankle Boots
There used to be a time when I was always in heels. But then I turned 30 (a few years ago…) and I am all over flat or low-heeled footwear. But I still want to look fashionable, so I think these will be a great addition!

2- Fur-trimmed wool coat
I just took my winter coats out of storage, and my wool coat has seen better days. It’s time to add a new one to the collection.

3- Midi-length skirt
I have some winter appropriate cropped sweaters that I want to wear over the holidays, so I’m looking for the perfect black skirt to match them with. I don’t want anything too form-fitting, but nothing too flared either. This is proving to be my hardest item to find so far. But I’ve got some good leads!

4- Driveway-shoveling boots
I don’t believe this is an actual term for footwear, but I just want a great pair of do-anything, but still keep my feet warm and look cute boots. Something to shovel snow and head to the cottage.

5- Oxfords or Loafers
you can’t go anywhere these days without seeing a girl in this type of shoe. With good reason, they are super stylish, a nod to a different era, and the perfect holiday party shoe.

Sorry I was MIA last week, I had a week-long conference that I had been planning for a few months, but that is over now and I’m back to blogging!

Here are a few things I picked up at my local drugstore lately, that I’ve really been loving.

1- Ardell Demi Wispies Lashes
I’m not much of a false lash kinda gal, but these are truly the best, and the most universally flattering on the market. My husband and I are taking a trip this week to celebrate our 5-year anniversary and I want to get glammed up for our nights out, and these lashes will do the trick!

2- NYX Shine Killer Primer
I was in the market for a new primer, since the ones I was buying from Sephora didn’t do much to control shine, which I’ve noticed I have more of now that I’m using more moisturizer in the colder months. This stuff is under $20 and it works great, it’s my new go-to!

3- L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara (Carbon Black)
I really wasn’t sure I would like this mascara because of its weird, flimsy thin wand, but the precision and length you get from this is incredible. Some of my favourite beauty bloggers swear by this stuff, and I totally understand why!

4- Secret Clinical Strength Invisible Solid*
This is not exactly a beauty product, but totally essential to my everyday routine and my last anti-perspirant just wasn’t cutting it. On top of that, I wanted something that was truly invisible and not all over my black clothes.

BOD-InShowerNourishingMilk-1412.ashx5- Nivea In-Shower Body Milk
If you’re like me, you just can’t be bothered to moisturize once you’re done your shower, so this in-shower lotion is just what I need! And it really works! I haven’t had a pinch of dry skin since I started using it! This will be a lifesaver this winter!

My 10 Essential Items for Fall

My 10 Essential Items for Fall

I’ve talked before on how I’m streamlining my closet and investing in key pieces that I love. After a massive wardrobe cleanout, it was time to go shopping and pick up some goodies! Here is my list of 10 essentials items I think you should have for fall. I’ve also included my favourite pieces for each category, and nothing is over $100! Just click on the pictures for details.

Black Leggings
Let me be more specific here: A dressier pair of THICK, OPAQUE leggings, preferably in a ponte fabric, vs. cotton.

White Tee
Again, not your basic cotton tee. A tee made with viscose will automatically look fancier and keep its shape. A round or boat neckline is a great option vs. the more casual v-neck look.

Black or Dark Jeans
I have both dark blue and black jeans, because it’s what I wear most, and I recommend a nice slim leg pair with very little distressing.

Chunky Turtleneck
Turtlenecks are huge this season and oh-so-cozy. A great option is the sleeveless tunic turtleneck, it’s great to layer under a jacket without all the bulk of the sleeves.

“Leather” Jacket
A perfectly fitted leather jacket or blazer is a must for the fall, it literally goes with everything and add the perfect amount of edginess to any look.

Black Booties
Tall boots are not for everyone, they can be quite bulky, so the low cut bootie is the perfect item for fall.  They look great with dresses,skirts, pants, pretty much anything in your closet.

Nude Flats
I’m still looking for the perfect pair, but until we have snow, I think a nude flat is a great piece for fall, and works with all sorts of colours. They basically disappear so the focus can be on the rest of your outfit.

Long Sweater/Cardigan
Again, nothing is more cozy than a long sweater, and they are just getting longer and longer this season, and I’m not complaining. You need extra length when you are wearing leggings, over dresses that might be a bit too short, and just to stay warm.

Long-Sleeved Dress
Wether it’s a tight-fitting cotton midi or an incredibly flattering swing dress, this is the perfect piece to add to your closet. It can basically be dressed up or down for every occasion.

Blanket Scarf
Get a head start on winter gear with this incredibly versatile piece. There are so many ways to wear this piece, including as a belted poncho, which I love.
