Happy Easter weekend! I hope everyone is having a wonderful long weekend! I love creating traditions in our home for this holiday. Easter always reminds me of Spring time and how pretty it is! I also happen to love a good waffle and mimosa tray – complete with some cute straws! We picked up some pussy willows and fresh blooms that really made it feel like Spring, plus they smell amazing!!! Have a great Easter with those who mean the most to you today. And maybe indulge with a few mimosas and some mini eggs!

friday favourites: holiday beauty

winter beauty favourites
Hello! Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year! I wanted to ring 2015 in by sharing a few of my favourite beauty products this season! We haven’t had a ton of snow yet this year so they are mostly my picks for the holidays.

1. MAC lipstick in Relentlessly Red
I have finally found the perfect holiday red! This shade is a classic that was slightly more orange than most of the shades of red I wear. It has a nice finish that felt smooth and re-applied nicely without drying!
2. E.L.F. Shimmering Facial Whip
I love to tap just a little of this to highlight in the corner of my eyes, cheekbones or browbone! The size makes it easy to throw in your bag for touch ups on the go!
3. Essie polish in Bahama Mama
Ever since I got this colour I haven’t wanted to wear anything else. It’s a rich deep purple shade that reminds me of the Stila Aria liquid lipstick that I love. It was a nice break from the typical reds I wear during the holidays
4. Essie polish in Stitched
I’m always a fan of neutral pink nail shades but this one out of the holiday collection has a subtle shimmer that gives a pearly look. It looks gorgeous worn under the matte topcoat too!
5. Essie Topcoat in Matte About You
I love the look of matte anything so I’m surprised it took me this long to try this product! Its gives a chic finish to your nails with any shade of polish
6. Herbal Essence Dry Shampoo
With such a busy calendar during the season, styling my hair often + the dry weather can be damaging. I try to minimize washes as much as possible! This one has worked really well for me and comes in an amazing rose scent!
7. Evian Water Spray
With the winter chill happening here I decided to try this product. When your skin is feeling tight and dry it keeps it feeling hydrated and dewy
8. Revlon Liquid Eyeliner in Blackest Black
Anytime I want a look that will last all night aka special occasions, photos, etc., I use this. It gives me a bold, smooth look that lasts ALL night! It is not the type of liner you want to make mistakes with though as it dries super matte, I usually use a formula like this L’Oreal one that is a bit more forgiving first as a template
9. Sonia Kashcuk Eye Shadow Quad in Fair and Square
This colour palette is my favourite for everyday and I can build intensity for the evening! I love to tap the glitter shade over my lid or corner of my eyes for looks that I want to be a little more special
10. Sonia Kashuk Matte Lip Crayon
Within my first application I knew I loved this product. The velvety texture feels great especially with the dry winter weather. The nude pink colour is perfect for everyday looks or paired with a smokey eye for evening
11. Sephora Glitter Eyeliner and Mascara in Golden Glitter
If bold eyes or lips are not for you or if like me, you just like to try something new – this is for you! I love how sleek and sophisticated a simple line of glitter underneath, along your liner or both, can look! Such a small statement can make a big impact for your next evening out
