Throwback Thursday: Switzerland!

The view from my room of Lake Geneva

Last summer, I was lucky enough to spend one month living in Switzerland doing an internship with a non-profit organization.

Time for my materialistic side to come out! We all have our moments.

1. iPad Mini 
I've had my eye on these beauts since they came out! I've never had a tablet before and I think having one would be really useful. They're priced reasonably well ($329) and the perfect size for me! If only I had some extra moolah lying around.

1. Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac (Burgundy) 
I absolutely adore these bags. I know they've been raved about a lot this past year but I recently saw one in person and they are gorgeous. I don't have many coloured bags so the burgundy one would be a great accent piece in my wardrobe!

3. Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush (Tipsy)
Loving coral blushes at the moment. I have yet to try Tarte blushes but really want to. It'll definitely my next make-up purchase!

4. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
Gossmakeupartist of Youtube fame raved about these concealers! Now that my Collection 2000 concealer is running out, I want to give this one a try. What I love about NARS is the amazing colour selection they offer. I find it really hard to find a concealer that doesn't make my undereye area look grey and get one to match 100%. Hopefully I'll get lucky with these!

5. Beauty Blender
I'm currently using the Cosmopolitan Blend Perfection "dupe" of the Beauty Blender which I love but I'd love to try the real thing. I have such a price-tag shock every time I see this in stores though. They are priced at $26 here in Canada. One day, perhaps!

6. Canon T4i
No explanation needed. I would LOVE to have this camera.

7. Marc Jacobs - Eau So Fresh
I have the original MJ Daisy fragrance but this one is suits me so much better! Don't get me wrong, Daisy smells amazing but this one definitely takes the cake. I'm not sure why I didn't get it to begin with. I'll probably order this one soon; I've been wanting it for months.

Q&A a day: 5 year journal


365 questions. 5 years. 1825 answers.

I'm absolutely in love with  this journal! I've always loved the idea of keeping a diary of sorts, but find it hard to actually commit to it and write entries everyday. This is the perfect answer to it! I purchased this journal about a year ago on Amazon ($13.86 CAD) and have been (mostly~) dutiful about filling in entries every day. It's so fun and interesting to revisit old answers and see what frame of mind you were exactly just a year ago. Sometimes completely different, sometimes no different at all.

Revlon Matte Lipstick

Revlon Matte Lipstick
009 Fabulous Fig
Dupe for MAC Russian Red!

*swoon* Don't you absolutely love the shape of new lipstick? I bought this on saleevent.ca for $2 CAD (I KNOW. SO CHEAP.) after reading amazing recommendations from makeupalley. It's a brick red, rich crimson colour. Obviously it IS a Matte Lipstick so it can be a bit drying but overall, great colour and formula. Very pigmented and great colour payoff.

The perfect day-time colour!

WANTED: Real Techniques Brushes

After many trips to several Wal-Marts here, I still have not managed to find the brushes! Ughh. I have a sinking feeling they may have only released them in Toronto thus far...

Real Techniques Brushes in Canada?!


According to Procrastinating Pretty, the entire collection is now available at Wal-Mart in Canada. I admit, I'm a bit behind on the Real Techniques craze but after purchasing my first RT brush in London over the summer, I am absolutely in love with the quality and design of these brushes. Coincidentally, I was searching for them on Amazon when I stumbled upon the the blog post. I wonder how they will price in Canada since we usually are on the more expensive side of the scale when products come here, unfortunately. Nevertheless, I am still UBER excited!

Quite simply, it was meant to be. Wal-Mart, here I come!

Photos and price updates to come.

Anyone else pick up the brushes?
