Video: Get Ready With Me – Dior Cosmopolite 2 Ways (Blonde vs. Brunette)

My friend Megan and I did another collaboration together on YouTube. This time we used the same products we both received from teh Dior Cosmopolite (Fall 2015 collection) and created our own makeup looks. Since she has light hair and is lighter skined, and I’m a brunette with darker skin we thought it would be interesting for us to both film how the same products could look on one another.

Here is a sneak peak of the outcome.Dior Cosmopolite makeup

YouTube video! 5 minute makeup challenge + mini giveaway

It has been quite the hiatus that I took from making YouTube videos. But as of 2 weeks ago, I’m back at it. Not getting all into beauty videos anymore, but more of a follow me around California vlogging style videos. Which, shows a lot more of my personality there instead of still photos, duh. As it would.

So without further ado, please check out my channel and subscribe for more videos as I post them every Monday & Wednesday.

As you all know, Megan and I are really good friends, especially since she lived in California too. Unfortunately, she moved back to Toronto area and since we miss each other a lot, we decided to do a YouTube collaboration and see if we could do our whole face of makeup in under 5 minutes, and film it!

Do you think we did it? Check out the two videos below, and go to our channels to enter the mini giveaways :)

Thinking Out Loud Thursday #3

1. I want to get my hair done by Silvia at Bibbo Salon, in San Francisco. I first discovered her on YouTube, with her fantastic hair tips and tutorials. Maybe soon I’ll get the guts to drive there and get it done. I really dislike going to new-to-me stylists. I’m so afraid they’ll wreck my hair.

Balance Bar2. I’ve been eating Balance Bars as snacks lately. Recycling this picture from March because I don’t have any left. Ate them all! When we first moved to California, I was going through them like nobodies business. But I mean, that’s not healthy. Right? They’re onl $0.99 at the grocery store, couldn’t help myself. Now, it’s all in moderation (again). Sooo good. I only buy the S’mores flavour. These are close to impossible to find in Canada, so this was on my to-buy-list when we first moved here, ha!

3. Finally got my wedding rings back from being sized smaller yet again (they messed it up the first time), and for its 6 month inspection/and polishing etc. One of them is SO TIGHT that I may have a bruise on my knuckle from taking it off for swimming/climbing. I wasn’t seriously considering wearing my wedding bands, but I had thought of it. That was, until Ellen told me it would be a terrible idea, due to the fact that worst case scenario, you could de-glove your finger. Please do not google image that. It’s gory and may leave you light-headed.

4. La Belle Mixtape | Summer Memories | Henri Pfr: I’ve been listening to that YouTube video all week. Such good tunes now that it’s summer :)

Shauna Nancy5. My husband’s younger sister is here for a little while. She’s a speedy runner, so I’m going to ask her for some tips while she’s here. She ran a marathon in 3:20! She was also my husband’s “best man” at our wedding. The other sister will be getting here soon! I’m excited to spend some sister-in-law time with them both. I’ve been trying to take the younger one out to a few places, but I think we’ll have to do repeats because my favourite places, I want the older one to see too! Blogging will be sporadic until at least the first week of July. I don’t want to be on my computer too much while they’re here.

Boulder V4 green6. I finished the V4 green boulder problem on Tuesday! Some guy and I were working on it at the same time. I cheered for him as soon as he topped out, and then he told me to crush it, and was coaxing me along while I was on the wall. I ended up doing what he did, a butt-hook with my left butt cheek on the face, and then reaching over (feeling like you were almost laying down, that’s how laid back the route is!) and getting the top hold, manoeuvring your left foot where your butt was, and putting two feet on top of that hold, and going for the top. It was incredible! I was so happy. I think I shouted.

7. I walked into Athleta (kinda reminds me of Lululemon) the other day after climbing, and the girl who always helps me with the clothing was there again. She has a cool name, but I haven’t a clue how to spell it so I won’t butcher it. She saw me dressed in my black tank + black leggings with chalk all over it, and asked if I just got back from climbing! It was a mini-bonding experience, because she goes to another climbing gym in San Jose. Who knew there were SO FREAKING MANY!? I need to scope the one she was talking about, out.

That’s all I’ve got for today! Off I go :)

Tell me something random, I’ll read it before bed tonight. And don’t forget to enter the green tea matcha powder giveaway.
