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 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.

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!

My Most Anticipated 2017 Movie Releases

2017 Movie Trailers

In case you didn’t know, I LOVE movies. I love comedies, dramas, international and so many more genres. When my husband and I were at the dating stage, I had never collected so many Cineplex Scene points, as it was our go-to date choice. Even today, we tend to go to the movies on our date night as I have a major thing for movie theatre popcorn too. I always look forward to seeing the new trailer, and 2017 is no different. It’s only January and I’ve already compiled a list of must-see movies to be released in the next few months.

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.

Glowing & Blemish-Free Skin with MaskerAide

Glowing Skin Makeup Look

I’ve been prepping my skin for my vacation and trying my best to be as blemish-free as possible. Unfortunately, I suffer from stress-induced acne and it sucks! As I’ve been planning for my upcoming vacay, work and mommy life has gotten chaotic and I’ve been trying me best to keep it together. As much as I look like I’ve got it handled on the outside, the small little friends that have popped up on my skin are saying otherwise. Luckily, MaskerAide’s new Spotted! Anti-Blemish Clear Spot Patches came to the rescue!

Delicious Pasta Recipes to Celebrate World Pasta Day

World Pasta Day

It’s no secret I LOVE food. But what’s my favourite unofficial food group? Yes, pasta. I love the versatility of pasta; you can have it in soup, hot, cold, glutten-free, etc. Anything and everything is possible with pasta, there is nothing that does not go well with pasta. Of course, what goes best with pasta is a divine glass of wine. In celebration of World Pasta Day, I’m sharing some of my favourite pasta recipes.
