I may have gone around looking like a nursery that day but looking back, I still think that blue bomber is the (or .ca - there is no discrimination over here).

Product Review: Bite Beauty Amuse Liquified Lipstick

In case you haven't gotten the memo, liquids are solid! I used to never opt for the liquid lipstick because I always thought they were messy and now I don't know how I ever passed them up. The applicators make it so easy and almost eliminate the need to line your lips.

Influenster has recently sent me three Bite Beauty Amuse liquified lipsticks to review in the following shades:

1. Flambe 
2. Demi Glace
3. Eclaire

My general thoughts regardless of the shade:

1. The shades were very pigmented 
2. Applicators were easy to use and allowed you to line your lip shape
3. Hydrating feel
4. Smelled (and tasted) great
5. Shiny finish was a nice change up from my usual matte stains
6. My only con is that the colour easily transferred over to my teeth

This is the Flambe shade. A really intense orangey red that will be a great transition to Fall.

The Demi Glace was just not a great colour on my skin tone. It was a little too brown and didn't have enough pink undertone for a good neutral lip.

The Eclaire shade was more barbie pink than I typically go for a light pink shade..but I wasn't mad at it!

Back At It Again

Dress: Dynamite // Sunglasses: Rayban // Shoes: Valentino 

Six months after my surgery, I am slowly re-training myself to wear heels. I can't exactly get my foot into all my heels anymore but if I'm going to be limited to wider straps and lower (for me) heels then they might as well be Valentino.

Layering is not reserved for cooler temperatures, sometimes you just need a layer to add some dimension and interest to your outfit. So when Ricki's asked me to pick out a summer must-have, this short sleeve cover up was an easy pick.

HS Studio's Detox Brunch

My Sundays are typically "me days". That involves very little communication to the outside world and mini-pamper session to prepare myself for the week ahead. But when I got the invite from HS Studio to attend their detox brunch, sacrificing the communication to the outside world for a real pamper sesh was an easy decision!

It started by getting a Kerastase clay treatment followed by a Clarisonic Purification System - yes, the Clarisonic we have always associated with skin care can now help your scalp. This new in-salon treatment allows for pore detoxification and micro-circulation activation. We were all then treated to a blow out. Anytime someone else tames the mane for me is a good day. I obviously needed to re-energize after all that hard work that I didn't do, and what better way to do that than by slamming down a breakfast burrito from Envie #BurritoAndBlow

The next stage of getting detoxed was testing out Dermalogica's new Stress Positive Eye Lift aimed at reducing visible signs of stress. 

Did the detox work? Well I literally went into brunch with a cane and walked (I use this term very loosely) out.

Tuxedo Days

Heels: Jimmy Choo // Blouse: RW&CO

Every now and then, I will see something and it will spark a new life goal of mine. This time, while watching the season finale of Vanderpump Rules and witnessing Ariana in a tuxedo as a groomsman, my new life goal was established. I NEED to become a groomsman one day. I have been a bridesmaid twice and attended my share of weddings in various dresses and one thing that is common between all of them is rethinking going for that slice of cake because you're just not sure who will wint he Red Velvet vs. Spanx battle. Imagine being up there looking like a BOSS in tuxedo and a bow tie AND never questioning your dessert adventure. Sounds like holy matrimony to me.
