Happy new year everyone! I’m back to blogging and making YouTube videos and I have a feeling this year is going to be great! I’m going to do DIYs like I always have but will be doing fashion videos too now. Let me know what you thought of the outfit below and don’t forget to watch the video at the bottom!
I’ve wanted to visit The Cupcake Shoppe in Toronto for over a year now but never did because I was busy, didn’t know how to find it (reviews online said it was hidden away in some corner and wasn’t easy to locate) and because a lot of the reviews online said their cupcakes were dry and bad and worse than ‘grocery store’ cupcakes.
I finally visited it last week after a post lunch craving for cupcakes. I googled the address and found out that it was actually really near my office…just two subway stops away!
How were the cupcakes? Fantastic!
Before I get into details have a look at the pictures below :
Hey all! I was invited to a beauty blogger event by Almay some time ago but never got a chance to type up the post but here it is. Better late than never right?!
I always wanted to take a makeup lesson or two and learn a few of the more complicated eye makeup looks and address some of the makeup doubts I’ve had for a long time. Going to makeup school was and is not an option for me – too expensive, requires too much time commitment and they teach you so many unnecessary things which you only need to know if you plan on becoming a makeup artist, which I do not.
I wanted to go for a short 2-3 hour lesson which would be taught on a one on one basis and I’d get personal attention and when I found Sehar from Magnified Beauty I knew I had to book her fast and go for it. I checked her work on Instagram and loved it! Her insta pictures comprised of stunning makeup that ranged from subtle every day eyes to bold smokey eyes to vibrant colourful looks – all blended and executed beautifully. I also saw some contouring pictorials and that she was a pro at that and her base makeup in all her pictures was just flawless. She lives in Mississauga so anyone in the Mississauga or GTA area (like me) can conveniently book her because the distance isn’t much, but even if you’re coming to the city from another location I’d highly recommend taking time out and visiting her.
Here are some eye looks she did on me and taught me :
