L'oreal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Gloss: Review

Hello everyone! Hope everyone is having a relaxed Sunday evening. I dropped by the drug store to pick up some essentials and of course I had to pass by the makeup aisle... of course.. right? Well any who I spotted these beautiful lip glosses by L'oreal and let me just say.... WOW. 
First of all let's talk about the colour selections.. there are so many beautiful colours it's unreal. Spring is right around the corner and these colour will not disappoint. The pigmentation of these glosses are amazing. These swatches below are just one stroke, so you guys can see how beautiful they are, and I can't believe I'm saying this but- No lipstick needed. I know. The formulation of these matte lip glosses  are so rich and smooth, that they won't dry your lips out. The consistency is not liquidy and it won't run on you, it's much more suttle which I personally like. Another key point that I look for in a lip product is the smell, and these smell really nice. In my opinion, L'oreal never disappoints and they sure didn't now. 

Like I mentioned, the colour selection was unreal, but I must admit that the pinks had me like woah! Here are a few of the colours that I left with today. 

The colours from left to right: Blushing Ambition(shade 300), Rebel Rose (shade 304), Forbidden Kiss (shade 310), Rouge Envy (shade 312), and Nude Allude (shade 314)

It's not like I needed more lip products, butttttt when I saw these- I had too. You guys get me right?


Ofcourse my cousin knows me and knows that I couldn't resist this beautiful red lipgloss in Shanghai Scarlet (shade 308), so when she gave it to me I was in heaven (angels literally sang to me when I saw it) LOL.

Hope you guys enjoyed,



What's in My Bag?

Hey guys! Hope everyone is doing well...I just uploaded a new video onto my channel. I was going to clean out my bag and thought, why not film a video? I love watching these types of videos, and I'm sure I'm not the only one. I have been wanting to do youtube for quite some time now and thought- it's now or never. So here we are. I hope you guys enjoy and let me know what you guys think.



Valentine's Heart Sandwich Cookies

Happy Valentines's Day everyone! I hope everyone is having a nice day with your special someone. I was in the kitchen this morning baking some Valentine's day cookies listening to one of my favourite romantic songs-"Take my Breath Away" from Top Gun, and I thought why not post a recipe up? These heart shaped sandwich cookies are super yummy and super easy to make. Hope you guys give it try. Enjoy!


2 cups of flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon powder
1 cup butter (room temperature)
1 cup of sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup of strawberry or raspberry jam
powder sugar to sprinkle on top

 In a medium bowl you are going to add the flour, salt, baking powder and cinnamon power. Mix together. In a larger bowl your going to beat the butter and the sugar together and then incorporarte the vanilla extract and the egg. Once all that is mixed together your going to add in your dry ingredients and stir together. Divide into two pieces and wrap them individually in plastic wrap and put in the fridge for 2 hours.

Sprinkle flour on the surface of your counter and roll out your dough. Cut them out with a heart shaped cookie cutter and then carefully put on cookie tray. Leave them in the oven for 10 minutes and let them cool down completely. After that is done you can fill them up with your favourite jam (mine is strawberry) and cover it with another cookies. Sprinkle them with powdered sugar. Ready to serve! Enjoy!



Valentine's Day Gift Ideas .....

With Valentines just a few days away, I wanted to share with you some gifting ideas for both him and her. I know that it gets a little difficult to buy the perfect gift for someone you care so much for, so I researched some of the things I think would be perfect to give.
Besides getting a gift I like to bake (no surprise there), so I like making heart shaped cookies, or even a little heart shaped chocolate cake. I know that some might think its not the best thing out there to give someone, but you'd be surprise how appreciative your love one might be. Always remember it's the little things that counts and if you want to throw in a nice gift as well, that's good too.

These beautiful Tory Burch boots would make such a nice gift. It's perfect for the winter season, fall and even spring. I was actually on the hunt for over the knee boots myself, so when I found these I was head over heels for them. These particular ones are currently on sale on the website, so that's a bonus.

This little guy is the perfect gift for that girl who doesn't like big wallets and likes wearing a small cross body bag. This Robinson Zip Coin case from Tory Burch is also great to store cards, coins, and even business cards. If your not into pink, there are other great colours to choose from. 

Fragrances are always a good idea in my opinion. Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf is such a beautiful and classic scent. If you like floral fragrances then this is perfect for you. I find that this specific perfume is ideal and could be use all year around.

Official product details from Sephora:

This floral explosion releases a profusion of flowers that has the power to make everything seem more positive. Magically evocative notes immediately awaken your deepest senses, giving you the impression of living life in your own secret garden, away from reality. Sambac jasmine, centifolia rose, cattleya orchid, and ballerina freesia bloom on a base of patchouli.

Oriental. Gourmand. Floral.


The Daily Chronograph Brown Leather Watch by Fossil is such a beautiful watch. I've ordered this particular one for my boyfriend online and I can't wait until he sees it. (I think I get more excited than him for presents to be honest LOL). He works in an office environment which I think this type of watch can be pulled off with a button up shirt, looking very stylish and masculine. 

Rays bans have always been a favourite of mine all year around and I find that they are always a gift. But I find it very sexy when a guy wears the Aviator classic Sunglasses. I find that they are very sophisticated looking, and very stylish which go with every outfit, whether it's a day at the office and he's wearing a suit or a weekend away with jeans and a white t-shirt.You can't go wrong with these babies.

There is nothing more sexy than a man that smells good. Am I right ladies??  There are nuermous amounts of fragrances that I love for men, from "Bleu de Chanel", "Acqua Di Gio" by Giorgio Armani, "La Nuit De L' Homme" By YSL, just to name a few. When I first met my boyfriend he was wearing Essential Sport by Lacoste and I always remember that I thought to myself .. Wow .. He smells really nice LOL! so it has always been a favourite of mine. 

Official product details from Sephora:

Discover this exhilarating scent, marked by ice-cold freshness, energetic spice, and wearable musk. Top notes of pink grapefruit, bergamot, frosted ginger, and tangerine create a bright introduction that leads to a heart built with nutmeg, juniper, geranium, and green splash accord. Layers of white musk, vetiver, amber, and patchouli provide an alluring base.

Pink Grapefruit, Bergamot, Frosted Ginger, Tangerine, Nutmeg, Juniper, Geranium, Green Splash Accord, White Musk, Vetiver, Amber, Patchouli.
Cool. Fresh. Dynamic.

        Hope this was helpful! Happy shopping and thanks so much for stopping by!

Spring is coming! Don't get me wrong, I love the snow but it's time for it to melt and go away  LOL...There are some beautiful pieces that came out, so what better to re-vamp your look and pick up some statement pieces for this Spring.
