Balayage and Ombre have been all the rage for the past few years. It started with dip-dye, and eventually evolved into ombre, balayage, and then a fusion of both. I believe the end-goal is for a natural looking colour that’s easy to maintain because it’s not dyed to the roots but still noticeable. I’ve also been on the trend for a while because plain black hair just isn’t my thing and I’m definitely not rich enough to dye my whole head and keep maintaining the colour with my quick growing hair which ends up with nasty looking harsh roots. So, […]
Believe it or not, this makeup remover really is reuseable and cheap. It almost sounds too good to be true and I too was skeptical about the whole idea of it. And to be honest, this has changed my life and I’m never going back. I no longer use any of my old makeup removers. And yes, that include those convenient makeup removing wipes and my beloved Biotherm Balm-to-Oil Cleanser. Want to know what this holy reuseable makeup remover is? Well I’ll tell you.
Trying asian products can be intimidating because there’s such a large selection. I find myself buying more American products because I’m used to shopping for them and comparing is easy. However, when it comes to Korean and Japanese products, it’s a whole other world I don’t understand. Luckily for me, Peach & Lily were kind enough to curate me a few products that would suit my skin and its concerns. So here’s my break down of how I felt about everything.
Mornings can be a pain in the butt. Nobody wants to wake up super early to head into work. Everybody wants to relax and be on a permanent vacation. In my case, I live in Canada, so it’s freezing cold and dark in the winter mornings. Way to motivate you to get out of bed, huh? The moment I peak out a corner of my blanket, I shiver. It’s never fun. I’ve been living in these colds winters for a while, so I have some winter essentials that may help you all out as well.
Not too long ago, I had the pleasure of attending the KISS Fall and Holiday 2016 Collection. It was a pleasant experience at Delysees in Toronto. I have always heard of Delysees and seen many of the delicious pictures, but I had never been there. Being a girl close to Toronto, but still quite the commute away, it’s hard to drag me down there just for food. However, I finally got the chance to try it today!
EOS (Evolution of Smooth) products are known for being extremely aesthetically pleasing because of the unique packaging and product line variety. I believe the trend of owning EOS products started from their lip balms and branched out from there. Their lip balms have very unique packaging in being circular, round, and pleasantly pastel coloured. It’s a step up from the typical tube-like lip balms you find at your local drug store. People have even DIY-ed lip balms out of the left over EOS packaging. The EOS trend has exploded in the online community. Now I will admit, I have never tried […]
I already had balayage and ombre in my hair from last year. The first picture depicts the dark and soft ombre. That I had. My hair also grew out quite a few inches since then. Because I already had balayage and ombre in my hair, my stylist Amanda simply touched up the top layer of my hair with a lighter balayage and gave me a 2 inch trim. You can see the results in the middle photo. Excuse the way my ends look, they’re always frizzy when freshly blow dried/ air drying. It was fairly brassy toned because she needed […]
It’s not a pretty picture. But at least I shrank it so it’s not in full size. I’m sure I don’t need to tell you which is the before and which is the after. On a side note, dear future boyfriend: my skin isn’t perfect. I can’t be the flawless sleeping beauty you wake up to, LOL. But here’s how I got over it:
When reading my requests, I got a request for a “monster”. I also had these really bad ass contacts that I wanted to use for something. SO when thinking of a monster, I automatically thinking of Venom, or the Symbiote. Whenever watching Spiderman either in comics, the animation, or movies, the Venom always fascinated me. I loves how dark and vicious it was. Not to mention, I think Spiderman looks a lot better in black than red, don’t you think? This was actually one of my first times doing something this ‘theatrical’ in terms of make up or ‘special effects’. It […]
Bleach is an anime and manga that’s near and dear to my heart. It is the definition of my childhood. I religiously watched and read it for weeks as it was released. Besides Prince of Tennis, it was what started my addiction to watching animes, haha! Unfortunately I stopped because the fillers drove me crazy. It also taught me not to read ahead with the manga if I plan to continue watching the anime. However, upon preparing for this video, I actually felt really nostalgic and decided to binge read and watch everything until the most recent chapters and episodes. […]
Alright, so you all know how my skin is suffering. And I’ve been going through different products and brands, hoping to find something that works. I’ve tried Dermalogica, Body Shop, Neutrogena, Olay, and even Vemma. So far, some of the products and brands work well, but only for a short period before the acne becomes immune to it (annoying, right?). Well, I’ve been hearing and reading articles about asian products and apparently they’re more effective than American products. So, I contacted my friend Bronwyn from Biibiibeauty to help curate a skincare routine for me. I mean- she is an expert on asian products, […]
So, after attending a seminar about this product, I felt the need to give it a try. The main goal for using this product is not only to nourish my body with nutrients, but also to try and minimize my acne. This product is known for maximum absorption of nutrients into your body. Nutrients absorb much better in liquid form than in pill form (which is what I normally take). Only 10-20% of the pill’s nutrients are absorbed. Meanwhile, liquid is 90-98%. If I’m paying so much for vitamins, I might as well get my money’s worth, am I right? […]
I have never been to a salon to get my hair coloured before because I thought the prices were ridiculous for long and thick hair like mine. Also, I’ve heard of so many horror stories that I’m just too scared to do it. Finally, on Wednesday August 6th, I did it. I got my hair ombred. I originally wanted Balayage, but I feel like my ombre had hints of a Balayage look in it. After getting my hair done, I finally understand why people pay the price to get it professionally done. I was absolutely in love with it! I […]
This is something that’s impacted my life quite a bit, so I am very nervous about posting about this. I wanted to post it up to let anyone who’s suffering know that they’re not alone and also an update as to what’s going on. THE START OF IT – PRIMARY YEARS I’ve had acne ever since I was young, about grade 6-7 it started to sprout. However, the only place it invaded was my forehead. However, I guess to make up for it never breaking out on the rest of my face, the acne was cystic. And I’m talking the […]
