I love watching chatty get ready with me videos on YouTube. I’ve been discovering a new one each morning as I get begin to get ready myself because it’s like the we’re getting dolled up together! Does that make me a sad, lonely person? Probably. I’m not ashamed. Recently, I tried out The Face Shop’s Disney Collection and picked up the Mono Pop Eyes in Lovely Pooh and CC Cooling Cushion in Natural Beige. The finish? Amazing. Packaging? Nailed it. Winnie the Pooh? Adorable. I decided to do a chatty get ready with me video for my Get Up & Go Girl channel and yapped away as I did my makeup. I talked about The Face Shop’s newest product launch, what I’m doing for my birthday (!!), and as the title suggests, yes.. I got ready for a date. You can get all the hot gossip in the video below. While you’re here, check out my latest vlog! I hang out at a Line Friend’s store in Itaewon. TBH I had no idea who these characters were but, I stopped …


I can’t believe it’s July! With the patches of gloomy weather we’ve been having in Toronto, it doesn’t even feel like summer. The muggyness has my hair in perma-frizz and to be honest, I haven’t even bothered to brush through it (think Mia Thermopolis pre-makeover). My bitterness about the weather and semi-unkempt nature aside, I do have beauty products I used constantly last month that picked up my beauty slack, including a new drugstore mascara, a bomb face cleanser and .. a bust cream? Yup, that’s a thing. Read more below! 1. Olay Regenerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Moisturizer  I’m a big fan of Olay moisturizers in general but, this one from their Luminous collection has been a game changer for my skin. The cream itself is thicker than most moisturizers, which makes dryness not even a concern for a solid 24 hours and has been helping to fade away dark-spots, leaving a natural don’t-even-need-to-wear-makeup glow. The best kind of glow, amirite? 2. Maybelline Lash Sensational For three years, Maybelline’s Falsies has been my holy grail mascara. I would not buy …

September 2014 Favourites

One. Bath & Body Works Country Chic Shower Gel, $12.50 I’m not too picky when it comes to shower gels, they just need to lather well, clean my body and leave my skin smelling hella-amazing. This one from B&B has been a favourite this month and it smells like a mix of lemon, raspberry and amber wood. I approve. Two. G.R.L – Vacation We all know I’m a lover of all-girl pop groups. It’s a guilty pleasure. The song “Vacation” by G.R.L has been on repeat throughout the month of September. It’s a good song to get you dancing in the morning. Three. Stila Stay All Day 10-in-1 HD Beauty Balm, $38 You’re technically supposed to apply this balm underneath foundation, but I simply wear it on its own. It’s tinted, lightweight and it doesn’t look or feel like you’re wearing anything at all. Great to slab on every morning for a nice light coverage, although I’d recommend a light foundation or concealer overtop if you need more coverage. Four. Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson A classic read. I …
