Sweet Sixteen

Hi lovelies!

     Today (well, yesterday) was my sweet sixteen; although I didn't have a glamorous or expensive birthday party, I still enjoyed my birthday. It was a really simple and sweet day that was spent with my family and relatives.
     My birthday was split up into two parts, my actual birthday (January 27) and today (January 28).  On my real birthday (in order of events), I woke up to my sister bringing me a gift bag of presents from my family, then having to practice piano for an hour because I had to go to piano class later on that day. After my piano class, my mom, sister and I went to the mall to retrieve my free Starbucks drink courtesy of my birthday (for Starbucks rewards members). A couple hours later, my sister and I went to our church's fellowship, and lastly, even though it was 10 p.m we went out to a restaurant where many of my relatives were there as well.
     Here are the photos:

     For part two of my birthday, I went to downtown to shop around with my brother and sister. We walked around for a while until we found a nice place to grab a drink. This place called "Darkhorse Espresso Bar" was our destination. My brother ordered a 'London Fog' while my sister ordered a lemonade, which later she didn't want then gave to me, haha. After we came out of 'Darkhorse' we made our way to Eaton Center where we grabbed a bite and a little dessert. For the big meal, I ordered a classic cheeseburger combo at "Big Smoke Burger" and for the treat, I got a strawberry gelato at "Froshberg Gelato".
     Here are the pictures:

     As for what I got for my birthday and what I wore, there's a picture for all that! I'm really thankful for all the gifts I got, especially the new addition to my NAKED palette family... NAKED 2! And the new camera I got (see the difference in the quality?). Enough chit chat, just look at the photos, haha.

My Favourite Beauty Products

Hi lovelies!
     Today I've got a good (but long) post in store for you readers. As requested by one of my friends, I have decided to show you my top eight makeup must haves and review them. There are a couple holy grail products here, so if you're looking into buying one (or more!) of these products but not sure whether they are worth the investment, hype or quality, you've come to the right place!

     Here's the photo:

1. The Urban Decay NAKED Palette is one of the most popular neutral eyeshadow palettes. I personally adore this palette because the eyeshadows are great quality with amazing pigmentation; there's a variety of colours for every skin tone that range from an everyday natural look to a nighttime smoky look.
     Cost: $58 (CAD) at Sephora
2. The NARS Laguna Bronzer is one of my all time favourites and one of my holy grail products. It's the perfect shade for my fair skin colour, not to mention the slight shimmer too! This bronzer gives off a natural, sun kissed glow while adding dimension to the face.
     Cost: $38 (CAD) at Sephora
3. The NARS Deep Throat Blush despite the name, is the "hype girl" to NARS' Orgasm Blush which is much more popular than 'Deep Throat'. However, since I do own both, I much prefer NARS' Deep Throat Blush because it's pretty much the same colour but has no gold undertone and less shimmer.
     Cost: $29 (CAD) at Sephora
4. MAC products really have a spot in my heart, haha! Not only do they cost less, but are also very much worth the value. My MAC Mineralized Skinfinish Natural in Medium is my other holy grail product. This is a product I encourage all my readers to buy, it gives the perfect coverage and does not look cakey at all.
     Cost: around $27 (CAD) at MAC
5. Another product I love is the MAC Blankety Lipstick. This colour compliments my skin tone perfectly and adds a slight bit of colour as well. I really love MAC lipsticks because of the colour options, the formulation and the scent. I suggest MAC lipsticks in general, to everyone!
      Cost: $19 (CAD) at MAC
6. A highlighter will brighten up the high points on the face and give off a little shine, the Benefit High Beam is the best one to do so. The fun part, is that the packaging resembles a nail polish but is actually a liquid highlighter.
     Cost: $30 (CAD) at Sephora
7. Mascara is not a product I use on an everyday basis however, if I did wake up early enough everyday to use it, I would use the Makeup Forever Smoky Lash Mascara. If you know me well, you'd probably think that Maybelline One by One is my favourite. I mean I like it very much but it doesn't do much for my eyelashes. 'Smoky Lash' really volumizes and lengthens my lashes while 'One by One' just holds the curl.
     Cost: $24 (CAD) at Sephora
8. YAY, last product! This is yet again, another product I don't use everyday, but is still one of the best liquid eyeliners I have ever used. The Stila Liquid Eyeliner is very easy to use and the colour payoff is amazingly dark and does not smudge or budge at all.
     Cost: $26 (CAD) at Sephora

     If you read everything from the beginning to the end, I adore you very much and I'm sending kisses your way; and if you didn't... none for you! I'm just joking, I thank EVERY one of my readers that took the time to stop by and even glance at this post.

Hugs and kisses,

About Me!

Hi lovelies! 

     Being that this is the first post, I thought that it would be best to introduce myself and talk about what's to come on this blog! 
     So first off, I'm a 15 years old (soon to be 16 on January 27!) and after being inspired by many prestigious, well-known blogs, I one day decided that I wanted to "be like those people" too. If you're wondering about the reason behind naming my blog title, it's because I randomly came up with the name based off my Tumblr account ( Not much of a meaning behind it, haha!
     Now for this blog, I'm planning on doing everything under the sun! From outfit of the days, experiences, reviews on products, and anything else in-between. I'm super excited to see how this blog will progress and if you readers have any suggestions for topics, or ways to improve, please let me know!
