Cinco De Mayo: You’re Probably Doing It Wrong

 

Cinco De Mayo party and celebrations.

I don’t make of a big deal about Cinco De Mayo. You may be thinking, “Why the hell not?” It’s the perfect reason to have a margarita or drink tequila! You can wear a sombrero and make tacos!…Exactly. These are some reasons why you’re probably doing it all wrong by celebrating Cinco De Mayo this way. It’s not so much about what we celebrate, but rather HOW we celebrate it.

20 GIFs That Are All Of Us At Sephora

Sephora

Oh Sephora, I love and hate that I love you. We have a complicated relationship, however there is no doubt that once I leave your store (or check out online) you make me a very happy girl. I don’t have a doubt in my mind that other Sephora addicts feel the exact same way, so I compiled a collection of GIFs that describe #AllOftheFeelings throughout our magical shopping trips.

Segundo Muelle | Experience & Review

 

Segundo Muelle Peru

While I’m in Peru I eat A LOT. No regrets and no second thoughts, I enjoy every bite. With 2 restaurants in the top 10 of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants, Peru is one of the world’s  leading culinary destinations. Between my love of food, and Peru’s culinary recognition, how could I could I not help myself? During my last visit, one of the restaurants that truly stood out was Segundo Muelle. I attended their location in the Boulevard de Asia and fell in love. I can’t wait to go back!

BECCA x Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette

What’s an upcoming makeup product I am SUPER looking forward to? This one! The BECCA x Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette is made up of two of my favourite things: my fave celeb mama and my fave highlighter brand. It’s no surprise that when it comes to highlight, I like to reflect a magical unicorn and I know that this palette will get me there. I also love that it includes a bronzer, which is new for Becca Cosmetics x celeb collaborations.

Easter Activities For Kids

Quick and Easy Easter Activities

When I was a kid, I loved Easter. My mom would organize an Easter Egg Hunt and provide treats for my brother and I. Of course, the delicious Easter dinners were also very appreciated, because yum!

In this blog posts, I’ll be sharing some fun, affordable and easy activities you can put together for your kids to create memorable Easter weekends.

Victoria Beckham x Target Collection

Victoria Beckham x Target

Victoria Beckham is one of my favourite celebrity mamas. Not only because she was a Spice Girl, but because of her commitment to her children and the grand career she has built for herself as a fashion designer. As a result of the love for her children, in particular her little girl Harper, and the love of fashion, she has teamed up with Target for a ready to wear collection.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit

Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit

I am all about a stunning highlight. I am all abut shining bright like a diamond and feeling like a unicorn every time I leave my house. Truth be told, I wasn’t all about the ABH Glow Kits when they were originally released, however when I got the Ultimate Glow Kit i feel in love. As a result, I jumped on the chance to purchase the ABH Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit early, because I love a good highlight and Nicole Guerriero can glow!

Maybelline Super Stay Better Skin Powder

Makeup review

My daily makeup routine focuses on my skin; glowing and fresh looking skin is my goal. My goal is also to achieve this quickly and minimally. My routine usually consists of primer, cc cream, concealer, and powder to seal. I contour with a powder bronzer and then apply highlighter for that ideal glow. Of course, I finalize with a lipstick of choice. I know this sounds like a lot of steps, but since I have this routine so on point it only takes me about 5 minutes (if I’m uninterrupted by my energetic toddler). A few weeks ago, Influenster Canada sent me an email about testing out a new Maybelline product, and as I am a makeup snob who doesn’t try as many drug store beauty brands as I should, I jumped at the chance.

My Favourite Places in Lima, Peru

#APeruvianSoiree

A few weeks ago, I got back from Lima, Peru…. Oh, how I love that city! There is nothing like the food, the pacific ocean breeze, the sunshine and so much more. Even though I was born there, when I go to Lima I am a tourist in my own home. I moved to Canada when I was 7 so there is so much that I don’t remember about Lima (or so much I don’t know from how far it has developed), but my family and childhood memories keep my ties so incredibly close to the city. Since I visit Lima frequently, it is my pleasure to share my fave places to visit in Lima, Peru, as well as give you an insider’s look into the city and all it has to offer.
