Christmas Cakepops!

My boyfriend helped me decorate lol

So this Christmas I decided I wanted to make Cakepops.. atleast attempt to try. If you don't know what a cakepop is, its pretty much a cake in a shape of a ball. Its then covered in chocolate then decorated however you want.  Alright so first off I want to let you guys know I've never baked in my life... or cooked. Opps! 

I decided to make a batch of chocolate and a batch of vanilla. Im not going to get into full details on how to make it, if you do want to know leave me a comment. I found that it was pretty easy to make, except it was very time consuming. I broke it up into 3 days, or else it would've taken me the whole entire day. The most difficult part I would say was dipping the chocolate. After the long process of making them.. I want to let you know they turned out delicious! Everyone that got to try them loved them. Hopefully next time I make them the decorating part turns out better.

ExfoliKate by Kate Sommerville

Let me start by saying this stuff is amazing. My holy grail exfoliator.  I purchased this from Sephora. Click Here. I got the small bottle from the beauty bar that they have when your going to go pay. They always get me there. They have awesome travel sizes that are perfect for trying out products before you purchase the full size. The small bottle cost $25 and contains 0.5 oz. The big bottle is $102 and has 2.0 oz. Yes, it is on the pricier side, so I will look out for a drugstore product I find to be most comparable.

What is it?
Kate Sommerville is a skin expert. Her products leave your skin feeling like you just got a facial from the spa. The specific product I will be reviewing is ExfoliKate. Its a dual action exfoliate. It mixes fruit enzymes and micro beads to deeply cleanse your pores. It polishes the skin for  smooth complexion and also gets rid of dead skin and blackheads. After one time use I noticed a huge difference on my skin, especially around my nose. This product should only be used 1-2 times a week. To apply wet your face and massage in a circular motion. I think it smells quite nice. The color of the formula is a deep green.

Would I repurchase?
Yes, yes, yes!

Model In A Bottle

So I bought this online from FTB Beauty Click Here. Its a Canadian online retailer that carries a lot of the american beauty products that we cant get here in Canada. So if your Canadian this website is awesome! I believe I paid $20 for the bottle. You can also purchase this directly from their website Click Here. I had heard so many Youtubers rant and rave about this product so I obviously had to get it.

My thoughts..
So this is a makeup setting spray used after you've applied all your makeup. The product works great and my makeup stays intact all day. It gives my skins a flawless finish and smells like perfume. So if you don't like fragrance, this is not the product for you. I personally love the smell. Downside is that this is an alcohol based product so if you have dry skin, I don't recommend it because alcohol based products usually make the skin more dry. Another downside is that it sprays very large droplets. I find that if your not as far as possible from your face, its like being sprayed in the face with a water gun.

Would I repurchase?
I know they recently changed their packaging, unfortunately they didn't fix the spray well enough. For this reason I probably would not repurchase. Hopefully they can work on the packaging again because I find the formula works great.

Holiday Nails

'Tis the season to sparkle!
So yesterday I decided to get my nails done. No, I did not do them myself. I can’t do my own nails if my life depended on it. The times I've tried it’s just turned into a horrible mess. I did shellac, I love it! It’s made my nails so much stronger and I've actually been able to grow my own nails! I did red and gold for obvious reasons. I can’t remember the exact names, sorry! With Christmas and New Years just around the corner why not do sparkle and glitter. It makes things much more festive.

OOTD - Winter Jacket

So winter doesn't officially start for another 3 weeks, but in my books I think its winter already. Its so cold here in Vancouver, but I'm then again I'm always cold. This is my quick jacket - outfit of the day look. I think its cute, warm and and a long jacket like this, makes you look a lot more dressier. One thing its missing is a hood, so I should probably invest in a toque pretty soon.
