Shopping in the States

Saturday, 28 March 2015


One of the things I love to do when I travel is shop.  When I go abroad I love finding out about new brands and products, but when I go to the States I love to find things for cheaper than they are here in Canada.  Last month I had the chance to spend a few days in Washington DC with some of my girlfriends.  Of course, we went to all the usual tourist stops.  I really enjoyed the U.S. Botanical Museum and their orchid room.  I also loved walking around Georgetown.  Reminded me of a more old-fashioned Yorkville (Hi Kate Spade!).

IPSY | March 2015

Tuesday, 24 March 2015


I am totally in love with my IPSY bag this month!  First off, the bag its self is B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L. The colours and print are on trend, creative, and entirely inspired by spring.  I hope they keep up with the bags being more in tune with young women, and less in tune with my five year old little cousin (August 2013-- I'm looking at you!).  While none of the items were "cool", each is useful and wearable!

Forgive me while I continue to play catch up!

While I love the bag that Ipsy came in this month, I was not exactly the biggest fan of the contents.  There were some things I really did like, and others that just felt "meh".  Thankfully the love I feel for the "loves" outweighs the indifference I have towards the "mehs"-- my Ipsy subscription will live to last another month!

Luxe | Burberry "Rosewood" Sheer Eyeshadow Review


Two weeks ago I was in Ottawa, which just so happened to be the weekend that Nordstorm opened!  My friend and I had a lovely tour of the shoe department, and then I made a bee-line for the make-up department.  I had heard that Burberry would be there, and I had been looking to try out "Rosewood" for quite some time!  My real life friend K from The Green Bows loves this product, and it looked so pretty in her yeah.  And now I own one.

Birchbox Canada March | Unboxing & Review

Saturday, 21 March 2015


Yesterday I posted my February review (sorry for the delay!  Sometimes real life comes before blog life xoxo :* ), and today I am really excited to share my March box.  After a kinda bleeeeeh February, I am really happy with this month, and hope that the trend continues!  How pretty was the box this month?

Birchbox Canada February | Unboxing & Review

Friday, 20 March 2015


I like Birchbox, but I don't really like Birchbox, if you know what I mean.  I love the idea of Birchbox, but the actual product?  Blah.  I literally only stuck around for March because it came with a BeautyBlender.  I think I will stick around for April, but after that if the products are not up to par, I will be taking a break. And by a break I mean cancelling.  

Taking Time To Rest & Spring

Hey there lovelies!  I know that my posting has not been the best these last few weeks, so I thought I would write up a little post talking about what I have been up to, and what I am looking forward to!

Guest Post | Green & Your Beauty Routine

Wednesday, 18 March 2015

Hello everyone! I'm Erika from over on Erika, Eventually and I'm pleased to be guesting on Classy On The Run! The theme for this month's CBB guest post exchange was green, and so I thought that I'd put together some great selections of green-tone beauty and skincare products!

Limited Edition | Tarte

Sunday, 1 March 2015


I am such a sucker for limited edition collections, so needless to say when I spotted this at my local Sephora the other week I had to have it!  I first tried a Tarte blush mini around Christmas and I fell in love.  Keep reading for my thoughts on this sweet little pretty-in-pink collection!
