Make up of the day | Burberry Fresh Glow

Makeup-Of-The-DayI like wearing makeup that doesn’t take me any more than ten minutes from start to finish. I always look for easy-to-blend foundations that give me a bit of coverage yet allows my skin to breathe, better yet, looks glowy too!


up-closeI’m slowly accumulating a handful of favourite foundations, and Burberry Fresh Glow is already up there. Thus, I wanted to highlight this foundation I used on a particular day last week considering it’s the perfect satin finish, providing me with a healthy looking complexion. It has a medium coverage to it, and lasts me the entire day. Do note, I never like to touch up my foundations at all during the day.

Makeup-Of-The-Day-FlatlayIf you’ve been following me on Snapchat you’ll know I received a PR package from Burberry not too long ago. I mentioned my love for the (new-to-me) Burberry Fresh Glow Foundation in my September Favourites video, and I thought I’d feature a look of the day using it on the blog to show you how it looks on me.

You know I get fancy when I break out the eyeshadow palettes. I wanted to capture a few up close shots of my eyes since it’s rare I wear any colour on them at all. The Too Faced Peach Palette (it’s coming back for Christmas you guys!) is what I’ll now reach for if I want any bit of neutral shadows on my eyelids.

Are you guys into these sort of blog posts for makeup looks? Or would you rather a step-by-step one like this?

She’s pregnant!

My neighbour is no longer my neighbour anymore since her family grew out of the apartment they were living in. Luckily for us, they still live within a ten minute drive of us. So I get to see them quite often regardless of her not being ten feet away anymore.

baby showerShe’s pregnant with her second child, and I ended up missing her baby shower last month, so I put together a similar gift to the New Mom Basket I did for her first born. It’s no surprise I enjoy spoiling my friends!

Although not sponsored, most of everything from the basket was from one of my favourite stores down here in California (for home-decor stuff), World Market! They even have baskets for purchase where it includes a wicker basket, cellophane, ribbon, and fluff to put inside the basket. So you don’t have to make all those hard decisions yourself. Ha!

I have to admit, I looked back at my other basket I put together for her so I could see what I added, and do something similar (like including a Diet Coke for instance). Here’s what I added to the basket, and finally brought it over to her house yesterday when we went on our walk.

baby shower gift3 AHAVA lotions (these smell amazing, and I used it on an every day basis for YEARS when I lived in Canada). So glad it’s easily accessible here in the USA (you can buy it at Ulta). The hand cream is to die for, and it sinks into your skin like butter. Amazing. Try it, please! Lol. The bar soap, Rose lemonade, mints, bubble bath, chocolate bar are all from World Market. The other goodies I picked up from Target: Honest wipes, cotton rounds, gum, onesie, pom-pom decorations for wrapping the basket. You’ll also spot a new MAKE UP FOR EVER excessive lash in there too, it’s a new mascara and it’s awesome.

baby clothesI picked up this adorable onesie at Target, and the Bioderma is straight from Canada! It’s one of my favourite gentle makeup removers, and it feels literally like water on your skin.

OOTD: Black on black on black

ootd-HEADERI love doing outfit of the day type of posts, and it looks like you guys are huge fans of them to. Any time I do them, my blog blows up.

reachGuess that means I should do more?



laughingWhat I’m wearing: White Sierra targhee insulated jacket, Zara jeans,Canada Home T, ASOS purse, Ray Ban sunnies, and Target sneakers.

black-on-blackWell here ya have it. Black on black on black, outfit of the day in downtown San Jose.



Stylish-in-blackLooks like I’m all suited up for winter, doesn’t it? Well, technically I am pretty set when it comes to winter gear, thanks to White Sierra for supplying my husband and I with a few new outer layers. I wore this one day when it was cool enough. It hasn’t been cool enough to wear it since. One day last week was 36*C you guys! That’s hotter than heck. I stayed inside and cranked the A/C. Now, cool down again please, so I can wear this stylin’ jacket.

Black-on-BlackI guess you can’t really see that the jacket is long enough to cover my bum. Which is nice. Most jackets like these just go to the belt-line and then a gust of wind will go up your back, giving you a chill. Not that you’d really get chilled in California. But if I were to wear this back home in Canada? Oh ya.


Don’t be fooled, I’m still my regular awkward self. Proof is in the bloopers:awkward-2



And there ya have it, another OOTD in the books. Should I make this a weekly thing?
