Lush

Despite the fact that there has been a Lush store in my city for quite a while now today was the first time I actually went inside the store and bought something. I used to think it was some weird food store because I saw cupcake shaped things in the windows, but then I heard Amarixe talking about it and found out it was a bath and body store with handmade cosmetics. I LOVED the smell of the store. It was a bit strong but I still loved it. Anyway, I had been thinking about getting my mom some bath stuff from there for a while and did my research on their website before I knew what I was going to buy. I only bought two things because I haven't used their stuff before and I don't know if my mom will have some strange reaction, even though she doesn't have any allergies. I ended up buying her the Satsumo Santa bath bomb and the Snow Globe soap. They both smell very citrusy and my mom's favourite scent is satsuma.


The bath bomb is supposed to change the colour of the bath water and make the water smell really good. And the soap is . . . soap. My brother and I have decided to give them to her in her stocking. I hope she really likes them!

Aveeno Nourish and Style Volumizing Mousse Review

I LOVE this mousse. I got it in one of those teen packs that are about $10 for six to eight full size products. The prices depend on the pack, but they're still pretty cheap. I got this one at Shoppers Drug Mart. Anyway, so the mousse if fantabulous. It smells awesome and doesn't make my hair crunchy at all, which is always a problem I find with mousse. It doesn't weigh my hair down at all and allows it to remain flexible and workable. This is also gentle on colour-treated hair, which is always a plus. When you pump it out it comes out as a foam. It makes hair feel lush and full, which is good if you have fine or thin hair.


This is an inexpensive foam that is simply amazing. I definitely give this product two thumbs up.

Bain de Terre Review

I absolutely LOVE my Bain de Terre shampoo and conditioner. I first found it at a hair conference my mom took me this past April in Toronto. It was with the Joico products. I bought the Green Meadow shampoo, conditioner, and heat protector spray. I had originally bought it because it was cheap ($15 Cdn for all three!) but I would buy them again in a heart beat. It made my hair feel really soft and shiny and it is gentle enough for every day use. It also smells absolutely INCREDIBLE. The only downside I found was that I had to use almost a toonie-size amount to get any lather, although when I used less it still got my hair clean. I also have long, thick hair so I find I have to use more to get the product evenly dispersed throughout my hair.



And then I ran out near the end of the summer, which was a bummer. But my mom recently bought me some more Bain de Terre, but this time in Passion Flower Colour Preserving shampoo. The only thing is, my hair isn't colour treated. But I find it still gets the job done and still smells amazing.
I definitely give the Bain de Terre shampoo/conditioner two thumbs WAY up! Definitely a five star shampoo for an inexpensive price.

Romantic Bun

Here is a romantic twist on a bun that I found on missglamorazzi's youtube channel. I love her hair and makeup tutorials. The makeup I'm wearing is from her warm and cozy tutorial. I like to keep my makeup more natural and subtle and that's what I love about her makeup tutorials.
