Smoky Everyday Makeup Tutorial

I made this makeup tutorial thinking i was gonna channel some fall vibes with a smokey eye and a dark lip but then it just became a somewhat glamorous, Smokey, Everyday hybrid of a makeup tutorial. I love the use of smudging a cream shadow with a transition colour to get a smoked out effect and I love the look of connecting the bottom liner to the top to create a hazy effect. I'd really like it if you'd check it out. I dont really know what happened with the quality because once I put it on youtube it became like a potato.

Monochrome

My outfits have recently been stuck in a monochrome phase despite the sunny colorful summer weather that I have at the moment. But that's okay because monochrome has this classic and timeless feel to it without having to put much effort into your outfit. It can look casual, sophisticated, laid back and bold without having to put much effort. I've been regretting the choice of chopping my hair because it would look totally kick-ass if I kept my long hair and braided it like I did in the pictures. Oh well :) I wanted to keep a laid back and chill vibe , so I went with my drop crotch/dancing pants that are made out of a super comfy fabric and it enables a lot of fabric movement.  I threw on a striped ribbed crop top that I picked up from Zara, and threw on my Adidas white shoes.
Stripped Ribbed Crop Top- Zara
Drop Crotch/Dance Pants-Forever 21
White Shoes- Vintage Adidas
I kept it simple with the makeup and just amped up my brow game and thickly winged my liner (which unfortunately you cant see because of my glasses ughhhh)




Until next time
xoxo

Mid-July Favourites

Black Converse, Circular Sunnies, Maybelline Line Stiletto, Lush's Grease Lightning, Lush's Dream Cream
I've been gravitating towards these 5 items lately and I guess this whole "black" thing is coincidental or maybe my subconscious has been gravitating towards anything of that nature. 
I've been living in these shoes even though they're too big for me. They're really comfortable and it feels like I'm wearing slippers because i can just slip these babies on and not worry about shoelaces and such.
I went on a shopping trip in June-ish with my friends and we got sunglasses with a similar silhouette, I like this pair because it has gold accents on the sides and its tinted with a purple-ish colour.
Ever since my other holy grail eyeliner decided to die on me, I went with a drugstore alternative because it was on sale at the time being. Its Maybelline's line stiletto and even though the tip isnt nearly as sharp and precise as my other one, the pigmentation of this one is more intense. It goes on like a liquid but it dries into a demi-matte. Now my winged liner isn't always as precise but its more intense. 
Usually I never get acne and blemishes, but I don't know, maybe I ate too many bowl of instant noodles and the MSG got to my face. Even though this product was apparently made as an acne spot treatment, I use it as a moisturizer and its been doing wonders for my skin.
I have really dry skin and I bought this when I was in Edmonton with my cousins and even though its pretty expensive for a lotion (I got it for aprox $27) it really helps my skin and gives it a "skin drink". 

Until next time

I love my boyfriend......jeans










Recently I went on a shopping trip with my mum just to find some basics and I found these boyfriend jeans so I got them immediately because I've seen so many of my favorite bloggers and youtubers wear them. I wanted everything to stay simple, so I threw on this white cropped tee that I cropped, and a pair of black converses. This outfit is perfect for cooler summer days that I'm getting because the weather here is so moody.

Love and Misadventure





I've seen this book all over tumblr, so I ordered it from amazon.ca. It came within a few days and the poems are so cute and sweet. Some of them you can really connect to them and some of them are just really nice to read as a pick me up or just food for thought. Lang Leav writes so that you can understand it from different points of view or when your in different moods. I have the paperback one and even the cover design is absolutely lovely.
Here are some of my favourites:



I cant wait to get her new book that comming out Sept 2014.
Thanks for taking time to read my blog

Sleep/Study Playlist


 Lately I haven't been able to sleep or stay on track with my studies (Fast tracking summer school) so I made this playlist that's quite nostalgic to help me fall asleep. Its all instrumental and there's songs from studio ghibli movies that I watched as a kid, and from Professor Layton games which were my favorite as a kid. Check it out if you wanna :)


 
Study/Sleep: Instrumental from rewindback on 8tracks Radio.
