On Monday night I had the opportunity to attend the media launch of "Lock In Your Love for Sick Kids" at Vaughan Mills.

DAVID'S TEA | Holiday 2016 Collection

Thursday, 8 December 2016

davids tea holiday 2016

One of the things that that I love, but don't really talk about on my blog is tea. I actually really dislike the smell of coffee, so tea is how I get my warmed up caffeine in. I am pretty open minded when it comes to tea, though my favourite is a nice straight green tea. The other thing about tea that I am obsessed with is mugs! I love mugs. I use ~fancy~ tea mugs to hold my makeup brushes, and have such a huge stash in my kitchen its not even funny. One of my favourite places to get my tea is at David's Tea! Not only do they have more flavours than you can imagine, but their teawear is so so cute. Today I am sharing with you some pieces from their Holiday 2016 collection! Enjoy!

MARC JACOBS New Nudes Sheer Gel Lipstick Understudy & Eat Cake

Marc Jacobs some how makes me lust over their purses, fragrances, and makeup! I am a long time fan of Marc Jacob Daisy perfume and recently have expanded my collection from the brand into makeup. I first got a Marc Jacobs lipstick in a Sephora birthday gift, and since then have fallen in love! I find that their lipsticks have a fantastic wear time, feel comfortable on the lips and somehow make my lips appear larger and more plump-- without any tingling!

This time last year I had never even heard of Charlotte Tilbury, and fast forward a year and I am just simply obsessed. Ob-sessed. I was first introduced to her products at a PR event last winter/spring (you can read about it here) and since then I have yet to try a product of hers that I have not loved. Some of my favourite products she makes are her lipsticks. Today I am here with some new-to-me Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks that have made their way into my collection. Keep reading for swatches and a review!
