Why I'm not chopping my hair!

It seems as if every one is taking the plunge (hair – wise). Last week, even Kim Kardasien decided to cut her signature locks for a much shorter hair style. Here are a few reasons of why many people are following the trend but really those reasons aren’t as good as many might think. “For every pro, there is also a con.”  This is why I am not getting a lob myself.

Split ends: My hair has soo many split ends so the idea of chopping them all off seems very pleasing, this is one of the main reasons why I was debating cutting my hair. But then I thought more about it and realized that by the time my hair grew out again I would have lot’s of split ends again! Or even worse, I would get split ends on my already short hair, what’s next, a pixie cut?

Growing my hair out: Everyone says, “Hair grows back.” Well, yea but how long will it take for it to grow back? Even of you had hair which grew very fast, it would still take over a year to have it fully grown out! I’ve been stuck in the mid-length stage for so long and I’m so long to finally passing that stage. Frankly, the idea of starting the whole process again makes me sick.

Looks amazing, but how long will this trend last?

It looks sexy and fresh: I agree that short hairstyles and the “lob” especially are very attractive, but long hair is equally as attractive. It depends on what the person likes. Just a few months ago, long hair voluminous hair was the big thing. Obviously, trends change all the time and I personally don’t think that short hair will be “in” for long, so it’s better to keep your hair long because it is much easier to cut off your hair the grow it back again. I love this picture! I mean look at this hair!

It costs less to maintain: I’ve heard people write about how it was going to save them loads of money that they waist on shampoos, conditioners, and other hair products. But in all honesty, that is a load of BS! You use shampoo and most hair products in your roots, so you’ll end up using the same amount as you would have used with long hair. The only thing that you may save money on, is getting highlights or dyeing your hair. But even for that most people don’t charge according to length…

Less maintenance generally: Styling your hair in the morning would take a lot longer with short hair than long hair. Just because you cannot get away with as many things. If there are a few hairs out of place it will be visible whereas with long hair it would all just blend together. Because of this, you will need to use heat tools more often thus going back to the split end section. I hope I haven’t offended anyone, these are just my personal thoughts/opinions. I love the look of short hair but I wanted to show you guys that it isn’t as black and white as it seems. This sounds funny, but hair for girls is a serious thing and I’ve had too many bad haircuts so hopefully I’ve spared some of you from taking the plunge and then regretting it! If you still want to cut off your hair, at least try to donate it to charity 🙂 Remember to follow via FB, Instagram, Twitter, anything you can think of!

Treasured Polish Review (O.P.I)

This is going to be a quick post about a nail polish that I bought recently and have been loving lately!IMG_1181

It is the Nicole by O.P.I in the shade: back to reality… Tv

First off, isn’t that the cutest name!! Nail polishes always have adorable names but this one really made me smile because I thought it was soo funny…
Now to the releventt stuff:
I love the formula of this nail polish so much! It glides on easily and makes almost no bubbles, it also doesn’t make any lines from the bristles of the brush. Speaking of the brush, it is very thick and I personally like that but some may not as it is harder to do any detailed designs. This color is a beautiful pastel purple, if purple can be a pastel?! Although  you can put on several layers for a darker color. Below, there is an image of my nails after applying one coat of this color:

Seche Vite Review (must-read!!)

IMG_1189 It was a holy day when I was in Winners looking for a new topcoat for nail-polish. Seche vite first caught my attention because it was in a box whereas all the other nail polishes were just freestanding. It was $7 and I was going to put it back (I know it’s a good price but there were other topcoats that cost less and I’m a money saver…) but then I realized that seche vite means dry quick in French. Since I never had a quick dry topcoat I decided to read what it said on the box. Here is a picture of what it said: IMG_1194 I am easily convinced to buy anything, really, if I watch any infomercial I will want to buy the object no matter how dumb or unuseful it may be. So this description instantly sold the product to me. And I must say that description has not let me down! This is a great product but as always there are some cons, here is a comparison:

Pro’s:

– It doesn’t smudge the layer of nail polish like some topcoats do – Your nail polish lasts 2-3 days longer

– Less chipping

– Makes your nail polish look like gel nail polish because of the thick layer of shine. Many people ask me if I’m wearing gel nail polish when I use this top coat.

Con’s: – Horrible stench, as soon as you open the nail polish you will smell are really horrible and strong scent. Since it is chemicals and probably a bit toxic, I suggesting applying this in an open area, or outside, not inside your bedroom.

-It may shrink some nail polish. On some occasions I noticed that after applying this topcoat my nail polish shrank a bit and you could see the tips of your fingernails. But the shrinkage is so minimal that you won’t notice unless you try finding it.

In conclusion, this product always gets me many compliments and has a lot more pros than cons. The one thing I didn’t mention yet is whether it really is quick drying. I didn’t comment on it because I don’t think there is a sure way to tell but I do think that it helped the polish dry a bit quicker.

V-day lip ideas!

Valentine’s day is nearing (tomorrow!) and whether you are single or in a relationship you will require a perfect lipstick color and/or design for no matter what you are doing! Here a few lipstick colors and designs I made yesterday, hopefully one will feel right for you!

redlips
Classy Red

Classy red: This is a classy shade and glimmery shade of red that will complete any look!

Products used: The body shop’s red lip-gloss and a red lipstick ( not sure from which store but any red should be fine as I only used it as a base)

r pout lips
Innocent and Romantic

Innocent and romantic: This beautiful pink will stand out for sure but at the same time make you look very innocent and romantic!

Products used: Smashbox lipstick in color “pout”. ( Please write a comment if you would like a review on this lipstick ) 🙂

red with pink lips
Bright Pink Hue

Bright Pink Hue: The brightest pink look you can find! On the outside I used a Revlon lipstick and inside I used an e.l.f lipstick in the color “gypsy.”

rheart on lips
Pink <3

 Pink <3 : This is a very daring look, with this look you’ll get people’s attention for sure! I used a red lipstick for the outside and Smashbox’s “pout” for the heart> I also used a brush to blend them in a bit,

red and pink
Red n’ Pink

Red n’ pink: Can’t decide if you would rather go for a red lip or  a pink lip? Use both!! For the red you can use any red lipstick and for the pink choose any bubble gum pink color.

r ligth red lips
Natural Red

Natural red: This is actually a red-tinted lip balm that moisturizes your lips while making them a pretty red color. This is perfect if you want a really casual look or “not very bold” red lip.

Products used: Labello lip balm in the flavor “cherries.”

These lip ideas should leave you feeling glamorous with or without a date! Have fun recreating the looks, I know I had a blast creating them! If you have any questions, make sure to leave a comment and follow on Twitter, FB, Instagram… pretty much anything you can think of so that you can see my posts right when they come out, along with other pictures that aren’t on my blog (like a really yummy crepe!)

Wishlist #1 ( Affordable:))

Wishlist #1 ( Affordable:))
Hey guys :))))
Today I put together a wish list and wrote some info about each product, hope you enjoy!

Victoria s Secret crop shirt
31 CAD – victoriassecret.com
I know, I know this is a very plain shirt and many of you are probably wondering why I would put it in a wish list! I’ve been looking for a casual grey top which is “flowy” for so long and I just cannot find one anywhere! I’m a bit of a cheap-ass and think that $30 is too expensive for such a plain shirt but I think I’m just going to end up ordering it because I am sick of looking for one!

Red coat
71 CAD – choies.com
I’ve seen this coat in soo many other polyvore sets and absolutely fell in love with it! It is casual but makes any outfit elegant. Just imagine; leggings, a white crop, cute ankle booties (some coming up), and this jacket. It’s all you need for absolute comfort and style!

Timberland black bootie
165 CAD – infinityshoes.com
This bootie is a bit more on the expensive side but it’s so cute! I love the heel, the height, everything about this boot! Unfortunately tho, because of the price I’m afraid it’ll stay on my wish list for ma while…

TOMS lace up platform ankle booties
110 CAD – bloomingdales.com
These boots are a must have for spring, imagine how cute they would look with the wine coat above *sigh.

Jessica Simpson heel booties
50 CAD – 6pm.com
These are super cute, a great color, and only $50!! How is that possible, am I dreaming?

Marc B black crossbody bag
86 CAD – topshop.com
Whenever I go shopping I always like having a small cross body bag instead of a giant bag that I would have to lug around along with other shopping bags. My last bag ripped recently so now I am looking for a replacement, and this bag seems to be perfect for that!

Kate Spade infinity jewelry
98 CAD – katespade.com
I’m not sure if you can see the details on this necklace but trust me, it is gorgeous! Imagine this necklace with the previously imagined outfit with the wine coat *sigh… cutest outfit ever!

Urban Decay blending brush
73 CAD – selfridges.com
This is actually the Naked Palette. I recently got the Naked 2 Pallete and now want the original! If you would like a review on the Naked 2 Palette, make sure to let me know in the comments! 🙂

MAC Cosmetics mineral lipstick
28 CAD – bloomingdales.com
Last but not least, a MAC lipstick! Not any MAC lipstick but a very pretty light pink color! I feel like this color instantly brightens any look and is the perfect last touch to pull an outfit together!
Hope you liked my wish list, if you would like me to do a review on the Naked 2 Palette make sure to leave me a comment! And don’t forget to follow me on Twitter, FB, Instagram… pretty much anything you can think of so that you can see my posts right when they come out, along with other pictures that aren’t only my blog (like a really yummy crepe!)

Difference between body mist and perfume!? + Promotion

I have always been wondering what is the difference between body mist and perfume. Other than the fact that body mist comes in a bigger container, I really don’t see any other difference! I don’t know if this was a stupid question and if there is some really big difference but in case anyone else was confused i decided to share my research. I have found a few differences, here they are:
