Affordable skincare routine for all face types

Hi friends!

I’ve struggled with acne and dry skin for years! Some may think that dry skin is more fortunate than oily but with dry skin, it is actually much more complicated to get rid of acne. This is because most acne products work by drying out the skin and pores to get rid of the stuff inside it but when you do that to dry skin you only make your face flake and it gets a gross dry texture!

So I think I’ve found a series of skincare products that will work for most skincare types, from oily to dry. It is the Clean & Clear 3 Step Advantage Acne Control Kit.

I’d just like to state now that this is by no means sponsored, one of my friends that had really bad acne cleared her face up with this product and she it to me. It worked for me too so I just wanted to share this product so that it’ll hopefully help some of you guys too!

I like the three-step method because the cleanser is really great for cleaning the skin but it isn’t tough on the skin. It is extremely smooth on the skin and not too drying. Then you follow it up with the spot treatment. Now, this is very drying which is why you follow it up with the moisturizer. The moisturizer is hands down my favorite product of the three. It is so light that it feels like you haven’t applied anything. It also doesn’t have any distinguishable scent so it is perfect for sensitive skin. It drys relatively quickly so that you can apply makeup afterward if you wish and leaves face feeling fresh and moisturized!

Let me know if this product works for you too! Or if you’ve used it in the past and what are your thoughts on it?

Fall Vibes Part 1

Hey guys!

Lately, I have been in the best mood! Which is strange for me to say because I have been more stressed than ever trying to balance, school, a job, and the gym 4-5x a week! I think its because here in Toronto we are having the best Fall I have ever experienced. It is the perfect weather, and I am enjoying spending my days sipping pumpkin spice lattes in large oversized sweaters! Not to mention I’m super happy that I somehow managed to avoid getting sick despite everyone around me being. Anyhow, I took these pictures during the Thanksgiving weekend, hope you like the outfit!

Transitioning Seasons Outfit Fall OOTD

Hey guys,

I’ve talked before about how I love summer fashion, so I try to incorporate some of my favorite summer clothes in my Fall outfits too. It was an oddly beautiful day in Toronto so I decided to  go have a stroll downtown. Side note: I also wore this outfit to puppy lessons right before going downtown (the puppies are soo cute!). I find this outfit very earthy and natural, perfect for a casual day like the one I had.

The sandals I’m wearing are also really comfortable because they have a thick cushion on the sole, so they were fairly comfortable for all day walking (despite some blisters at the end of the day). The outfit details are below and don’t be afraid to comment if you have any other questions or would like to know some of the  makeup products I used 🙂

Cute Thanksgiving Outfit

Hey guys,

Is it just me or do you also feel like Thanksgiving just came out of nowhere! I can’t believe its already October, time flies… Not to complain, I mean pumpkin pie is one of my favorite desserts of all time and pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks are my weak spot! So I wanted to create a seasonal look for a family dinner or whatever it is you may do for Thanksgiving. I’m going to a cottage with my family and some family friends, what about you?

Styling a Denim Skirt Casually

2017 brought back the denim skirt trend and I was more than eager to try it out! I recently purchased two denim skirts from Ardene (only $9 each, what a steal!) I wanted to be able to wear these skirts casually so I’ve created a sporty/casual look with my black denim skirt. Outfit details below!

OOTD: Denim Skirt

I’ve always been in love with the denim skirt trend but was skeptical to try it out, until I saw this skirt and fell in love with it! Immediately, dozens of different outfit combos came to mind but today I decided to create a really minimalistic and simple outfit with a white theme. Outfit details below!IMG_5217

Simple Henna Designs For Summer

Henna is a beautiful symbol of culture and tradition, but it has also become one of the biggest summer trends. You can create beautiful designs on your body that stay on for a few weeks. It’s like a temporary tattoo. Since I’m not very artistic, I have decided to gather some pretty henna designs that anyone can do! I’ll also explain how to easily achieve the design!

I found this design particularly beautiful! It looks complex but if you break it up into a few small steps it can actually be pretty easy! You start off by just drawing a simple dot and two diamond shapes getting increasingly bigger around it . Then, draw the swirly lines that are connected to the edge of the diamond Voila, you’ve done the hardest part, now simply draw the 5 dots on either side of the diamond and the small lines around it and you’re finished!

To be honest, I’m not sure if this is a flower or sun but either way it’s a cute design! It’s pretty straight forward how to draw this, except with one trick. After drawing hte circle, use the tip of the henna applicator to drag out the little triangular things instead of using more henna, it will end up much cleaner and precise.

I have always found elephant henna tattoos adorable so I was determined to find one I could draw! This is probably the toughest design here, but if you look at it really close and do it one part at a time it is manageable! A tip is to start at the bottom and work your way up.

I also love tortoises in henna, and this tortoise looks complex but is in fact really easy to draw. Start with the shell and you can draw the square design of the shell very easy. Just draw two horizontal and two vertical lines. Inside the square you can do any design or even leave it blank. The rest of the body is pretty easy!
