Fragrance Fridays: New Elie Saab Le Parfum Resort Collection 2017

Elie Saab’s Le Parfum Resort Collection Festival Edition is the most unique perfume I’ve tried in a while.  Absolutely the most unique one I’ve smelled all season, for sure.  In fact, I’m still not sure how I feel about it because to me, it’s so unpredictable.  I’m never quite certain exactly what I’m smelling – and […]

Drybar Sparkling Soda

I love me a good shine spray – they’re perfect for taming frizz and giving hair a dose of moisture.  If I want staying power then I use a hairspray, but most days I just need a bit of TLC, and so I’ve been turning to Drybar’s Sparkling Soda shine mist ($35).  It’s light-weight but […]

Bite Beauty The Lip Pencil

I’ve come to love a good lip pencil. The best kinds are super dry and highly pigmented. This means that they stay on your lips and because they’re so pigmented, you can use them all over your lips like lipsticks. Bite Beauty’s new Lip Pencil took three years to formulate.

Kerastase Chroma Riche

Kerastase’s Chroma Riche collection is formulated especially for coloured hair – and since that’s me right now, it’s what’s in my shower currently.

Garnier Micellar Water in Travel Sizes

So Micellar Water – it’s actually such a controversial product among skincare specialists. Some people really hate it because they don’t think that it really gives your skin a good clean, and others can’t live without it because it’s so easy to use. Micellar Water looks and feels like regular water, but performs as a […]

Dior Poison Girl

Dior’s Poison is such an iconic scent, and is basically synonymous with sophistication from the 80’s which is when the scent came out.  I remember relatives picking it up at Duty Free when they travelled or buying it on the plan, so it has certain connotations for me.  Poison Girl, which is out now, targets […]
