Lush Shampoo Bars

I’ve mentioned that Lush’s Soak and Float Bar is a great dandruff shampoo, but the fact is that I’m a fan of all their shampoo bars. I notice that these bars clean well but don’t dry my hair out and they all smell so original! Some of you may be concerned that a bar shampoo […]

Um, That’s Not Snow…

Yes, I am talking about dandruff today. I realize that it’s a taboo subject in beauty circles, but we all suffer from it at some point in our lives. It’s either from the cold weather, or from stress, or using a shampoo that’s not great for our scalp. I, myself, once decided to remedy the […]

Johnson’s Baby Oil Gel

The winter season is upon us and although it hasn’t been too cold here in Canada until recently, indoor heating can lead to dry skin.

This is a picture of the beautiful Eva Longoria and I just had to post it. This is how a dark eye design is supposed to be done. Notice the pale pale lipcolour and the addition of blush on the cheeks to make her look healthy. The dark eye paired with the nude lip colour […]

Part 1: Don’t use conditioner when its first ingredient is mineral oil. This conditioner left my hair greasy and lifeless and I had to wait until the day was up to be able to wash it out of my hair. Part 2: Don’t assume that whatever amenities the hotel provides will be good enough to […]

Do It Yourself

It’s not just that I didn’t feel that pure black nail polish was the best colour for my skin tone. It’s also the fact that I didn’t want to be wearing the exact same shade that everyone else was – BLACK. I couldn’t find a colour that was different so I decided to make it […]

Foundation Trick

A little while ago, I had a tv appearance and had my makeup done by a makeup artist hired by the studio. Now, I don’t know her name but she had worked on movies and tv shows before, but she was still relatively young. The studio where the TV show was being shot preferred the […]
