How I Completely Cleared up my Acne

I hope that you enjoy this video and that this routine does for you what it did for me.  It feels amazing to not have breakouts anymore and it's been a very long road to get here.  

Good Habits

  • Drink 8 glasses + of water per day
  • White Washcloths and Pillow Cases.  Wash them with bleach.
  • Remove Makeup every evening!  Preferably right when you get home for the day.

My Everyday Makeup Routine

Without a doubt, these are my most watched youtube videos.  I love to watch other people put on makeup... It's relaxing!  This is probably some kind of subconscious childhood comfort trigger from watching my Mom do her makeup.  Whatever it is, I can't get enough.  I'm so excited to finally have my own contribution to the genre.  This video made me so happy to film and edit.  I hope you enjoy it!  I've linked all of the products used below.

What's in My Diaper Bag (Louis Vuitton Edition)

In my latest video, I show you how I use my Louis Vuitton Neverfull GM as a diaper bag.  It takes a bit of creative organizing as the Neverfull has no pockets.  Well, it has a small one.  Anyway,  I've found that this actually works better for me.  It really frees up a lot of space and lightens the weight significantly.  Watch the video below to see what I carry around for my 11 month old an how I keep organized.  The little Mud Pie diaper pouch is the best way I've found to carry diapers, because I can use it with most handbags or carry it on it's own.  The versatility really has made it my most used baby item.  This is a pretty bold statement!  I've linked it below in case you want to get one.  It's actually on sale right now.  Don't forget to like the video and hit the subscribe button.

February Favorites and Christian Louboutin

Today I filmed my February Favorites video... for about the thousandth time.  Ok, exaggeration,  maybe the 4th. But still, it was excessive.  I re-filmed and re-filmed the same content...over and over again  It was just so difficult to get rid of my insecurities long enough to approve of anything about my first few takes.  Granted, I don't particularly love the final product any more than the rejects.  I just had to come to terms with how I look and how my voice sounds etc,  and accept that I'm not perfect.  It was the first of many hurdles I'm sure will come with this hobby of mine.  It's already  rewarding though.  I'm already proud of myself for overcoming and pushing on.  I hope you watch and like what I'm doing.  Let me know if there's anything that you'd like to see me do with this channel.  I definitely take requests.  Also, please subscribe to my youtube channel and follow me on instagram and twitter.  I plan to post at lease one video and two blog posts per week.  I post on instagram everyday.

Products from My Video:

  • Clarins Extra Comfort Foundation in shade 105 Link
  • Chanel Poudre Universelle Link
  • Chanel Liquid Eyeliner Link
  • Sunday Riley Luna Link
  • Image Skincare Vital C Eye Gel Link
  • Phillip Kingsley Elasticizer Hair Link
  • Lush Bubbleroon in Rose Jam Link
  • Jo Malone London Cologne in English Pear and Freesia Link
  • Scarf Made By My Mom
  • Mulberry Roxanne Link
  • Christian Louboutin
  • Clearly Canadian Link

These shoes deserve more than just a mention and a link.  They're the perfect shade of pink that can still pass as a neutral/nude.  That makes them practical for a luxury purchase because they're so wearable with so many outfits. They're also just pink enough to keep them from being the same tired nude patent pumps that everyone already has and wears.  Don't get me wrong, I love nude heels!  They're an absolute staple and I wear them all the time.  These are just something extra special.  I've had my eye on them since before you could even purchase.  The pre-sale was a serious temptation, but like a good girl, I talked myself out of them.  Well, the good girl won that battle but ultimately lost the war because I ended up buying them anyway.  They're really hard to find now as they've almost sold out, so if you're interested, you'd better act fast.  I'm sure these will make plenty of appearances in my blog and OOTD posts on instagram, so stay tuned to see how I style them.  I can't wait to get started.  Here's a sneak peek at my first outfit.  How do you feel about the mauve paired with pink?  Is it too much?  I thought the distressed denim added enough edge for balance.
