Introducing: Pixi Beauty (Now available in Canada!)


About a month ago, I had the opportunity to attend a release event for Pixi Beauty. I first found out about this brand through reading UK beauty blogs and used to scope them out at Target in the states. Now, they are finally back in Canada at Shoppers Drug Mart!

My Tea Box- March 2017 Subscription Review


If you read my empties posts, you'll notice I usually have at least a few bags of loose leaf tea. I normally get them from David's Tea but since they started using artificial flavoring, I've been trying to branch out and find some alternatives.

Recently I discovered My Tea Box, which is a tea subscription box based from Canada! The monthly cost is $24.99 and includes shipping and taxes. I received the March 2017 box for review so let's take a look at what blends I received.

Five Essential Boots to Own on the West Coast!

Now that winter is over, this is the perfect timing to snag up a pair of boots on sale to prepare for next season! I used to buy shoes whenever things went on sale and ended up with a ton of random pairs of boots. I've since learned to be a bit more minimalist and enjoy having fewer pairs of boots that matches with everything. I've had this idea in mind for a while and can't wait to share with you guys the five pairs of boots you need in your closet!

TWG Limited Edition Sakura Set Menu

Recently, I had the opportunity to have a delicious tasting menu at TWG. The store is where Urban Tea Merchant used to be but the space was recently renovated and opened as TWG last December (Georgia/Thurlow)! The store offers a huge selection of loose leaf tea and accessories but you can also sit down to enjoy high tea, full meals and also special set menus!

 
Currently they are offering the Sakura Tasting Menu which is inspired by the limited edition Always Sakura tea blend and will be available only until early April ($65 for 3 courses + 1 tea). I'll be sharing some photos of the beautiful food and giving you a bit insight into the menu.

Purple Gradient Eyeshadow Look ft. Mary Kay Spring 2017


The Mary Kay Spring 2017 collection is probably one of the best launches since I started working with the brand last fall. The packaging is beautiful and the products all perform really well! I reviewed their lip oils recently and have now added them to my purse for daily use! I was also really drawn to the eyeshadow palettes that are limited edition to this collection.
