SPRING 2019 WISHLIST

Keeping is short and sweet - I haven't posted on my blog since 2017. As all bloggers who seemed to switch over to just Instagram; "I just wasn't inspired to write blog posts anymore." For now, at least, I'm happy to pick it back up.

Here's a lil graphic of all my Spring 2019 wants (needs, really) - let me know if anything catches your eyes too!



1. Urban Outfitters Kate Femme Essential Boot - I somehow don't own any white boots, these would be perfect with summer dresses and dark cropped jeans, UGH. On sale too.. 

2.  For Love and Lemons Butterscotch Tiered Mini Dress - Not just this style, I'll literally take ANYTHING off of their website, I've been hooked for YEARS on this brand. SO. DREAMY.. but their prices are sadly too much for me.

3.  Platform Doc Marten Jaden 8 Eye Boots - Literally everyone has these because they're so cute with ultra girly pieces (like above dress).. I may or may not have already caved on these. 

4. Swarovski Lucky Goddess Heart Clip Earrings - This brand is usually not on my radar but three of their latest collections have been stunning; Sunshine, Lucky Goddess, and Symbolic Moon

5. Rockland Stagecoach Luggage - Basically my luggage is old and ugly and I'm dreaming of some cute (and instagram-worthy) suitcases for trips I'm planning, love this vintage style!

6. Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel - The best bronzer to exist - it's creamy and looks perfect blended into foundation for a natural glow. Definitely a NEED given my fake tan addiction.

Quo 2017 Holiday Collection at Shoppers Drug Mart


Christmas came a bit early to my PO box this season. Above are only some (can you believe there's more?!) of the 30 kits by Quo available at Shoppers Drug Mart this holiday season. I love when brands put out big collections like this for the holidays, it makes shopping for picky people juuuust a little bit easier. There's also enough range in this collection to buy for tweens to adults. Kits like this look thoughtful and extravagant because there's so much to each one. There's even a few little bits you might want to buy yourself early (advent calender's and Christmas crackers are a must)!

The packaging is cute and festive, and the individual products have sleek and minimalistic containers. Though I haven't used any of these yet, from previous Quo purchases I know this brand makes quality items with good pigmentation. My favourites right away were the artisan brushes and the luxury lipsticks. Below you can find all of these kits listed in order of the photos above and I've also listed the prices. I found everything to be quite reasonably priced given the amount of product. If you want to check out the other kits available take a peek on the shoppers drug mart website!

1. Lip Gloss Bar, $20
2. Luxury Lipstick Wardrobe, $30
3. Delux Brow Sculpting Set, $20
4. Cosmetic Crackers, $15
5. Artisan Brush Set, $79 (put this on your list, seriously these are amazing quality)
6. 12 Days of Beauty, $40
7. Beauty on the Go Trio, $35
8. Blending Sponges, $8 each
9. Emery Board, $3 each

Have any of these kits caught your eye? Have you tried any Quo cosmetics before? What did you think? Let me know below!

Kerastase Reviews Week One: The Densifique Line


 
I'm guilty of going to the grocery store and buying whatever hair care products are on sale, despite the fact they're probably doing more harm than good. I have a full head of tape in hair extensions and have recently dyed my hair back brown from platinum blonde... You can imagine my hair is not in the *best* of shape. When I received these products from Kerastase I used it as an opportunity to finally take good care of my hair (though the products were free, the opinions are ALWAYS my own.)

I will be reviewing three of Keratase's hair care lines, the ones that are best suited for my thin, damaged, and unruly hair over the next three weeks. First up is their Densifique range, for thin and dull hair. I'll start by saying their packaging is perfect. It feels expensive, classy, and like it won't break when I drop it ten times in the shower. They smell incredible, but may be too strong if you're scent sensitive as the perfume of them sticks around. These products are definitely pricier than most, but after seeing such a difference in my hair and extensions I definitely believe they're worth it. I also feel like picking out one of these ranges that best suit someone's hair type would be an amazing Christmas gift idea!

FONDANT DENSITE 
These products all contain hyaluronic acid (found in our skin to hold moisture), gluco-peptide (enhance the quality of hair fibres), and ceramides (adds strength to reduce breakage). This conditioner leaves no heavy feel to your hair yet still gives it moisture and body. It untangles my extensions with ease, and takes no effort to rinse out. I'd give the conditioner a nine out of ten!

BAIN DENSITE
This shampoo provides thickness, substance and tone. I definitely noticed, after my usual blow dry routine, my hair had much more volume. Only downside is that I have A LOT of hair, may it be thin, so with this size bottle I will be running out soon :( Only because of this, I'd give it seven out of ten.

MASQUE DENSITE
I am obsessed with hair masks. I have tested sooo many over the years, and I'm in love with this one! I have been testing each product out separately (how scientific of me) and this also provided volume and life to my hair. It also leaves my, sometimes stubbornly coarse, extensions extremely soft and smooth. A ten out of ten for this mask!

They also sent along this amazing reed diffuser!? I don't know if they're for sale or where but I really recommend it. I've never had one before and this massive bottle immediately filled my apartment with the most gorgeous floral yet deep fragrance. 

Have you tried any Kerastase products before? Have any favourites? Let me know below and don't forget to leave a link to your blog/insta so I can check you out!
