Blonde Kim for the Win

Babes, it won’t be a surprise to anyone out there that I absolutely adore blondes – especially platinum, brass free, almost white blonde. As all of the internet knows, our dearest Kim decided to debut her hair jump from the darkest of browns to the lightest of blondes during Paris Fashion Week – and I have LOVED every minute of it! There are so many conflicting opinions out there (such as Ye MADE her do it) and memes (Oh God, the memes) – but I’m only interested in the opinion of my babes – Are you LOVING or LEAVING Kim’s blonder than blonde look?

Blonde to Blonder

Babes, for a while now I’ve been wanting to go blonde – I’ve done the ombre, I’ve done the sombre, I’ve done the “natural” looking blonde highlights (aka not natural looking at all) – and recently I decided it’s time to try PLATINUM. I was a little apprehensive, as I’ve been dying my hair for literally years and I know the road to platinum barbie hair is usually a long one and causes more than a little damage to your hair.  Continue reading

Show Some Skin

Babes, we all know how good makeup and fabulous hair adds to any babe’s look – but there is one thing that is an absolute MUST when it comes to looking your best – and that’s healthy looking skin. I know this is much easier said than done, but babes, I have finally found a great skin care line that has actually done wonders for my skin and is pretty much a godsend! Continue reading

Christmas Wishes

Now, I don’t mean to panic any of you beautiful babes, but I think I should let it be known that there are only 35 – yes, 35! – shopping days left until Christmas! Usually I leave things to the last minute – so guilty of this – but luckily I’ve started online shopping a few weeks back and have done some of my Christmas shopping. It’s times like these I am so happy I work in the hair/makeup/beauty industry – it makes shopping for the women in my life just that much easier. I’ve started to compile my x-mas list to give to my man (let’s be honest, I completed it months ago) and here are my top picks:
1. Gucci Cosmetics – I have been obsessing over Gucci’s cosmetic line since it launched back in October, and have been so disappointed that the line is not available to ship to Canada from Gucci’s website (crying face). I’ve been told Gucci cosmetic’s are available at Holt’s, so even though my BF tells me I already own way too much makeup, I’m hoping to find a few of these treasures in my stocking!
2. Valentino Rockstud Patent Leather Slingbacks – Babes, I die (or live?) for these amazing Valentino slingbacks! I’ve had my eye on these babies for a few good months now, and I know if I had these in my wardrobe they would most likely become my daily drivers. I love how they look with skinnies, skirts, dresses – everything! I want, want, want!
3. Candles – I really don’t know any babe who isn’t a maniac about candles, but sometimes I take it to a whole other level. To say that I am candle obsessed is an understatement – I love candles of any brand, size, and smell (especially any sugar, pine, or clean linen scent!)
4. Sexy Lingerie – yes, yes, YES! I love receiving lingerie as a gift, especially since we babes know how pricey lingerie can be. I hope to receive some sexy pieces from my favourite lingerie line Agent Provocateur and the ever sexy Victoria’s Secret.
5. Something Sparkly – last but definitely not least, I think every babe has some sort of sparkly shiny jewellery on their wish list, be it an amazing pair of earrings, a tennis bracelet, or that special once in a lifetime ring – sparkle sparkle! 
So babes, those are my picks this Christmas – let me know down in the comments what you are craving to see under the tree this year! Until next time, happy (in person/window/online) shopping!Christmas Wishes

Sephora.com Haul Review

Good morning, babes – it’s time to rise and shine! Our Thanksgiving long weekend is over here in Canada, and it’s time to get out of our turkey daze and get back to reality. Last week, I wrote a post about the haul of beauty products (which can be found here) that I purchased from Sephora.com – and the good news is that all and in all they were pretty great products (definitely tooting my own horn here) and I have used them/been using them for a long enough time that I can provide an accurate review for all you gorgeous babes!  Continue reading
