A Personal Touch :)

Hey My Lovelies

I hope you are all well and had a lovely christmas, hopefully you were all spoilt and spent it with loved ones :)! First off let me just say I'm a bad blogger, I haven't blogged in ages, I've been so busy with work and christmas shopping that my blog was definitely at the back of my mind......forgive me?

So on to the actual blog...... For christmas I decided to get a personalized gift for my mum, she loves jewellery so I decided to get her a necklace from I also got one for myself, so I snapped a few pics to show you the style, lettering and how it comes packaged.

This company has been getting a lot of 'airtime' on youtube recently, they are obviously sending them for people to review. I however did not get sent this and bought both necklaces with my own money (just to clarify that)!

So heres the pics

This is how it arrived at my door, I love the small chiffon bag 

I love the font they use for the lettering, it looks elegant and kind of victorian ish! (does that even make sense?)

I paid $29.95 for each one, I also managed to get 10% off and free shopping (I ordered it on the monday after black friday, i think it's called Internet Monday....I don't know haha! All I know is that I got a good deal.)

I really like these necklaces, they are good quality, look elegant and it adds a personal touch as a gift or even for yourself. They are based in America but they are manufactured and sent from Israel so the shipping took 18 days to get from Israel to Canada. They say it takes a maximum of 15 days shipping worldwide but I guess with the christmas back log it took a little bit longer, which was fine. I even tweeted them saying it took more than 15 days (as I was worried it wasn't going to get here in time for xmas) they tweeted back quickly and were pretty helpful!

Overall I enjoy this necklace and wear it everyday with pleasure knowing that I am wearing a bit of Miss Carrie Bradshaw esque on me. So if you want to be like Miss Carrie Bradshaw from SITC and wear your name for the world to see I would definitely recommend this company.

# I paid for this with my own money and you should too!

Would You Rather...... (Beauty Edition 2)

So the sisters from EleventhGorgeous came up with a second edition to their Would You Rather Tag!

I wasn't tagged but here goes anyway......

Would you rather walk around all day with you skirt tucked in your underwear or be seen wearing a really see through dress?

 Hmmm I guess a really see through dress because you'd know about it and you would only see the outline of your underwear..Do you know what I mean?

Would you rather go to a party and not realize until the end of the night that you have lipstick on your teeth or that your fake lashes are coming unglued?
 I don't really wear fake lashes but i'd go with that because when you talk to people the first thing I notice is their smile & teeth! I guess guys wouldn't really notice your lashes coming off unless they were outrageous (*cough* Chloe Mafia from Xfactor *cough*)

Would you rather forget to put mascara on one eye or forget blush on one side of your face?
 I guess both would be totally obvious but I think i'll go with blush because I think missing mascara on one eye would look odd as one eye would stand! Hmmmm tough one.

Would you rather wear lipstick/lipliner combo or frosty blue eyeshadow?

Frosty blue Eyeshadow can't look that bad right?

Would you rather wear foundation that is two shades too light or go way overboard on bronzer?

 Both are horrible but I think you could get away with the foundation if it wasn't a dramatic difference....for example if it was a sheer foundation colour like the mac face & body foundation!

Would you rather drink an entire bottle of ketchup or run into the guy who broke your heart on a bad hair day when your skin is freaking out?

I think i'd be sick if I drank an entire bottle of ketchup....Eurghhhhh so I guess I'd rather bump into the guy when i look crazy, I'm assuming the guy has seen you when you wake up in the morning with no make up and crazy hair....How bad could you possibly look? no biggie i guess!

Would you rather be able to date any celeb you wanted or wake up with perfect red carpet-worthy hair?

Hmmmmmm date a celeb....Channing Tatum please haha!

Would you rather your armpits smell musky or like delicious lasagna?

What a WEIRD question, If I had to choose one, it would be lasagne....I think.

Would you rather give up your makeup or cell phone for one year?

As much as this pains me because I love all things beauty but I couldn't give up my phone :-(, it goes evrywhere with me haha

Would you rather run into a cute guy you like with food all in your grill or no makeup at all?
Jeeez.... I guess no make up because food all around your mouth would be highly embarassing. Let's hope it's a good skin day haha!

I tag you all :-)! xoxo

Rihanna :-)

Alot of great artists have played at Montreal recently! My friend and I decided to be spontaneous and we managed to get hold of tickets to see Rihanna & Ke$ha two days before they performed.....Yeah I was excited to say the least :-) I've always loved Rihanna and let's face it Ke$ha's a bit cool haha!

 It was a fab night, she performed so many songs, was amazing live, braced her new RED hair and danced in scandalous outfits!

If you get the chance to see her LIVE, do it! Some of the slower songs she performed, she got really emotional and started subtly crying...Eeek! (Chris Brown maybe? ...tut tut)

I took some pics and thought I would share them with you, we had pretty good seats for a concert that we thought would be sold out...hehe!

I loved her outfits and her make up was flawless :-)

Her set was also amazing, she had cars, tanks, guns, robots (a la Transformers) and a moving conveyer belt oh and women hanging from the ceiling for Te Amo!
The whole concert was amazingly put together! 

Te Amo Rihanna :-) xoxo

Cream Blush as a Lipstick

Hey Ladies

I have recently been introduced to cream blushes by a friend who is a make up artist *Jealousy*

Now for some reason I always thought cream blushes would be harder to apply and would fade off quicker....boy was I wrong. I am now obsessed with wearing them. I love how natural it looks on my skin, it gives you such a nice flush of colour and just the right amount of sheen.

So today I tried it as a lipstick, well it's more of a lip stain really, it stays on for hours (big plus in my books).

The cream blush I am talking about is by Maxfactor (I got it in Uk as a birthday present from a friend)

Top swatch: Product blended in
Bottom swatch: Product swiped on

I love love love this product. 

I'm now on a mission to find good cream products, if you have any recommendations please tell me?

What's your favourite cream blush? Nars? Mac?

Would You Rather TAG

I haven't been tagged to do this but I've seen this flying around the youtube world and thought I would give it a whirl.

Here goes.....

1.Would you rather go out with messy hair and nice make-up or nice hair and no make-up?
I would rather go out with nice make up and messy hair, you could always use the excuse "It's the out of bed look" haha.

2.Would you rather shave your eyebrows or have your eyelashes fall out?
Neither, Are you trying to kill us but I would definitely go for my eyelashes falling out just because I could put on false eyelashes and I can't stand it when woman draw on their eyebrows especially in the heat....Ewwwww ( Not a good look ladies)

3.Would you rather be forced to shop at only MAC or Sephora for the rest of your life?
When I lived in Uk definitely Mac but at the moment I would choose Sephora ( a benefit of living in North America)

4.Would you rather wear lipgloss/lipliner look or 80's perm?
I actually don't know, possibly the lipgloss/lipliner look but neither are attractive at all!

5.Would you rather leave the house with an obvious foundation line or overdone blush?
Overdone blush all the way because blush fades during the day so it would be muted down and you can just bluff your way through it. Foundation line....Ahem heck no!

6.Would you rather wear MC Hammer pants or biker shorts in public?
MC Hammer pants...Let's face it the harem pants are back in. 

7.Would you rather have a bad orange-y spray tan or really weird tan lines that can't be covered?
I'd go for the weird tan lines, I refuse to be ORANGE.

8.Would you rather have a bad haircut or bad hair color?

Who made up these questions? I guess a bad hair cut theres always extensions right? 

9.Would you rather have youtube or twitter taken away forever?
Twitter.... I love youtube.

10. Would you rather give up using makeup brushes or mascara?
I would give up make up brushes. Mascara makes me look more alive, haha.

It's your turn girls....What would you rather do????
