END OF SUMMER | FAVOURITES

Hi sweets!

Summer in Canada is coming to an end. Our hot, sunny days have been replaced with reddened leaves and rain. It’s been a nice change of pace, and I’m excited to get my scarves out for the season change.

Along with that, I have a few favourites to wrap up the summer:


Fragrance Favourite

Dior Blooming Bouquet – Unfortunately, with summer coming to an end, this scent will likely be locked away until Spring. It is so light, and airy – such an easy, beautiful, girly scent. In the words of Charles Gross, it smells a lot like “raspberries that have been left out in the heat”.


Beauty Favourites

It Cosmetics CC+ Illumination – When I first received this, I was on the fence about it. Usually I will mix it with a matte foundation to tone down the dewey-ness in it, but it leaves a lovely finish to my skin.

Too Faced Sweet Tea Bronzer – Another product best suited for summer, it gives such a beautiful, sunbeam glow.

MAC Melba – I’ve mentioned this in a favourites before. I just keep going back to it. It’s a perfect blush for any makeup look.

Sephora Radiant Luminizing Drops in Morning Light – These are gold. They create such a natural glow at the high points of my face.


Random Favourites

Bath and Body Works Leaves Candle – I treated myself with my annual fall candle shop at Bath and Body Works. In previous years, I have never picked Leaves up. However, after hearing Zoella rave about it, I did. I have loved the scent!

Hunter Rain Boots – The mass amounts of rain we have gotten lately, has given me the excuse to pull my Hunters out again.


Music Favourites

Way Down We Go – Kaleo

Rise Up – Andra Day

Carry Me – Kygo ft. Julia Michaels

Closer – The Chainsmokers ft. Halsey

Corner Booth – Luke Bryan


 

Alright, I hope you all had a lovely month. What are your recent favourites? What are you doing to prep for the changing seasons?

Thanks for reading, xx

JANUARY | MUSIC

I wanted to share a few songs that I’ve been loving lately. They aren’t necessarily new to me, but a sunny drive and some soulful tunes have helped me kick the blues.
John Mayer: Heartbreak Warfare and Stop This Train (he is a stunning artist and these songs bring my back to some high school memories)

James BayLet It Go and Hold Back the River 

HozierFrom Eden and Work Song

Jasmine Thompson: Fast Car– I just recently came across her. From what I can tell, she does mostly covers but they are BRILLIANT. She has the gorgeous, unique voice and she’s from Britain, I believe (for my UK followers ☺️)

Vance Joy: Mess Is Mine

Kygo: Firestone – this song is SO much fun. Incredible instrumentals.

Let me know if you listen to any of the songs, or if you have any song suggestions.

Thanks for reading, xx
