NEON Stores Visit


It's almost the holidays and Christmas shopping is underway! It's a busy time of the year and I know I shouldn't technically be shopping for myself right now, but NEON Stores invited me to stop by for a little shopping spree and a tour of their brand new store on Queen St in Toronto!

6 Ways to Get Super Organized


It's always good to be organized and I love to plan everything! Especially this time of the year when everything gets crazy busy and very stressful for so many people. As a student with a part time job, blog, YouTube channel, and friends/family to see - things can get a little hectic. Planning ahead and staying as organized as possible is something that helps my mind settle so that I can get some sleep at night! 

Today I'm going to share a few ways you can get yourself more organized. I use all of these methods almost daily!

A/W16 Look Book | Collab with Adrienne and Carolina


You may recognize these girls from my Instagram, Twitter or even Vlogs on YouTube! Yes - Adrienne and Carolina and I are all part of what we call our #BLOGSQUAD. We always have a blast going to networking events together, taking each other's photos, and sending each other memes in our group chat. 

We decided to do a huge collab post for an A/W16 look book - photos AND a fun look book video. Mine is embedded at the bottom of this post, but be sure to check out Adrienne and Carolina's that will be linked as well!

BITE Beauty Matte Lip Creme



I was SO excited to find out I would be receiving the BITE Beauty box from Influenster this past month. Inside, there were three shades of matte lip creme. I fell in love with them, of course - but here's some more information in case you were wondering about the brand!


Their Facebook page explains what they do, perfectly -- BITE Beauty proves you don’t have to sacrifice performance for a product made from nature. BITE contains the age-defying antioxidant Resveratrol and organic shea and fruit butters for a moisture-rich feel. All of the colourants that make BITE so richly pigmented are food grade approved.

BITE products are available exclusively at Sephora USA and Canada and via the Sephora.com website.



In the specific package that I got, there were three shades in matte lipstick. 


Cava - A light nude shade that is sure to go with just about any look
Red Velvet - A bright cherry red, perfect for the holidays
Glacé - A deeper dusty rose, almost brown shade that would be perfect to throw on for a night out


My favourite one was Cava! Here are some photos of me wearing it:



My overall rating is stated below...

Packaging: 5/5
Ingredients/Formula: 5/5
Long-lasting: 4.5/5
Pigmentation/Colours: 5/5

Pants // H&M
Bag // DAILYLOOK
Hat // Nine West
Boots // H&M

Wish List Wednesday: Winter 2016


I have quite a few things on my wish list this winter! 

It includes a grey knit turtleneck, a black midi skirt, a pink lace-up sweater, and a white ruffled blouse. I am also after some makeup products by Too Faced (when am I not) and this amazing "Blondie" lipstick by Lime Crime

I recently visited a Kate Spade store and fell in love with their rabbit collection that included this pair of bunny earrings and also a pair of black and gold shoes. I am also still dreaming about last season's black cat purse! Oh and who doesn't love a good winter candle burning during the cold months of the year? 

What is on your list this winter? Share with me below!

My First Attempt at Meal Prepping


This was my FIRST attempt at meal prepping! I've been wanting to try it for a while now because of my busy lifestyle and my knack for organization and planning. So, here was my first try. I am going to share what I made, how I made it, and also a video of me the day I did it all!


I decided a week ahead what I was going to make, and made a list of all the food, ingredients, and snacks I wanted to include. The meals that I made were enough for 4 days, and were meant for lunches to take to school each day. 


The food I decided to make was...

Salmon with butter + spices brushed on top
Quinoa pasta with basil pesto sauce + butter
Carrots and mushrooms with mediterranean spices

The snacks I included were...

Taste of Nature granola bars
Annie's organic rabbit fruit flavoured snacks
Del Monte fruit cups
Annie's organic white cheddar bunny crackers
Boom Chicka Pop white cheddar pop corn


I portioned all of the food and snacks out into 4 different containers and put them in the fridge. All I had to do each morning was open the fridge door to pull them out - and don't forget a drink!


Have you ever tried meal prep before? 

Also, if you want to give it a try - let me know how it goes!


Watch the video below of how it all went down!
