Have you ever wanted to customize your own beauty bag? Well now you can thanks to Farley Co and Zoella Beauty! Zoella Beauty is now officially in select drug stores around Canada and to help celebrate I'm giving away a limited edition Sticker Me! Beauty Bag! Keep reading to see how to enter!


I was so kindly sent my very own Sticker Me! Beauty bag to decorate and review, as well as a Fizz Bar! Let me tell you about the fizz bar first though, it comes in absolutely adorable packaging which is no surprise because every Zoella product is extremely cute and chic. 


The bar consists of eight fizzy squares which you can break apart so you don't have to use the entire thing in one bath. You only need 1-2 squares so it can last you up to eight whole baths!


It smells lightly perfumed and refreshing, the scent isn't strong enough to bug my sensitive nose but it still lingers even after your bath which is really nice. It leaves you feeling relaxed and refreshed!


Now onto the Sticker Me! Beauty Bag. When I seen this idea I thought it was wonderful, who doesn't want to put cute stickers onto a makeup bag and decorate it however you want? 


It came with thirteen different stickers as you can see above, the #Beauty sticker is my favourite. They're the kind of stickers that are soft and squishy with the hard plastic backing. Now I know what you're thinking, the stickers are probably just going to fall off when you use the bag. Well, you'd be wrong! They are extremely adhesive and I couldn't even take them off to move them a bit. So make sure that when you're sticking them down that that is where you'd like them to stay!


As for the bag itself, it's a dark blue plastic bag with a pink zipper and Zoella's name on the front of it. It's actually quite large and can hold a ton of stuff, it also keeps its shape pretty well.


NOW, ON TO THE BEST PART, THE GIVEAWAY! All you have to do is go to my Instagram, Spooky_Chic, and find the photo above or click HERE. Follow the directions on the photo and cross your fingers! Pretty easy, huh?

ZOELLA BEAUTY | Sticker Me! Beauty Bag + Fizz Bar Review + GIVEAWAY!

Hey kittens!
Coming at you today with a post about HASK Hair Care through BrandBacker! I have been sent these products but this post is not sponsored, and as usual these thoughts are my own!

So I had the pleasure of reviewing HASK Argan Oil Shampoo, Conditioner, Deep Conditioner and a Shine Hair Oil. The argan oil strengthens and restores, is best for dry and damaged hair and every product has a lovely orange citrus scent! So keep reading to see what I thought about them!


First thing is first, the Argan Oil Repairing Shampoo! This shampoo is said to be infused with moisturizing argan oil, leaving your hair frizz-free, silky-soft and super glossy. It's ideal for dry, damaged and colour-treated hair. It has a lovely orange scent which personally I really enjoy because I am a fan of orange and it wakes you up. As I do have tape in extensions I don't apply the shampoo directly to my hair, instead I put it in my palm and then soap it up a bit and then apply so that it's not completely silky which helps to keep the extensions in longer. If you don't have tape in extensions then no worries there!


Next up is the Argan Oil Repairing Conditioner! Again, it has the really nice orange scent which is awesome because it definitely lingers all day but it also leaves your hair amazingly super soft. It has the kind of silicone feeling and since I have extensions like I mentioned this is really nice for keeping them untangled and hydrated.



Then we have the Argan Oil Intense Deep Conditioner Treatment with Keratin, it's super straightening and hydrating. It will restore and smooth dry, damaged, and chemically treated and over processed hair. It says to let sit for 10 minutes, rinse well and then style as usual. I love these little deep conditioner treatments specifically for my extensions because they don't keep themselves hydrated of course so this was awesome for giving it the boost I needed to help restore them!


Last, but not least we have the Argan Oil Repairing Shine Oil. This is something that I like to put on my hair everyday before I brush it just to make sure I'm not splitting any hairs unnecessarily and add a gorgeous shine. It absorbs instantly to provide a frizz-free shine without leaving any oily residue. You can use this on wet or dry hair and all you need is a coin-sized amount applied evenly to throughout your hair.

Have you tried HASK hair care before? If not, are you interested in trying it?

SURE LIFE ISN'T PERFECT BUT MY HAIR IS | HASK Argan Oil Hair Care


Imagine yourself relaxing on the bow of a boat, gently swaying in the waves. Your skin soaking up the warm rays of Sunshine, smelling the crisp Salt Air and sipping on a Gin & Tonic. Doesn't that sounds wonderful? Well, I no longer have to imagine that when I'm not back at home on Vancouver Island. With the help of Demeter and Canadian Beauty Bloggers I have created the perfect scent to take me back to exactly that using Demeter's Foolproof Blending Trio and Foolproof Blending Kit!


I had never tried Demeter or smelled any of the scents before but I thought that this would be super fun to do and who wouldn't love creating their own cologne? I was right, it was definitely fun and a bit challenging. I ended up creating a scent that is 100% what I imagined it would be.


I was sent a trio of scents that I choose, Salt Air, Gin & Tonic, Sunshine, and a Foolproof Blending Tool Kit so that I could create my personalized scent! The idea is that you can create your own personalized cologne spray by mixing from the three scents that you got to chose. Each scent does truly smell exactly how it's named which makes choosing the scents very easy because you know exactly what you'll be receiving.


The Foolproof Blending Tool Kit comes with everything to help you create your own scent. It comes with an empty spray bottle, a funnel, six droppers, and a bunch of blending strips so you can figure out how you want your cologne to smell before you really start mixing.


The reason that I chose Salt Air, Gin & Tonic and Sunshine was because I knew that I wanted to create a scent that reminded me of my hometown, Ladysmith, on Vancouver Island during the summer. If you've never had the pleasure of visiting there it's right by the water hence the Salt Air, it's quite warm in the summer hence Sunshine and it wouldn't be a real relaxing summer day without a bit of alcohol, I opted for a Gin & Tonic.


I ended up creating this scent that I called "Warm Breeze". It was exactly how I had imagined it when first choosing my trio of scents from the Classic Catalogue. Salt Air is definitely the strongest of the three and as soon as I smelled it I fell in love and knew I wanted that to be a really strong note in the cologne. The second strongest was Sunshine and it's super pleasant to have that show up and bring a warm note. Last but not least I added the Gin & Tonic to spice up the cologne and tie together the warm and crisp scents. It definitely brings me back and is now my go-to fragrance to wear especially when I am missing home!

NEOSTRATA | Instagram Giveaway!

Hey kittens!

I have the wonderful pleasure of being able to share the Mary Kay 2016 Fall line with you all! In the collection we have eight different gel semi-matte lipstick shades, two shades of Glowing Finish Illuminating Sticks, three nail lacquers, an eye colour palette and last but not least a gel liner duo!


Here are the gorgeous three nail lacquers in the colours Blue Debut, Rosy Encore, and Gold is Bold. Now, I didn't include any swatches because I did paint my nails but I absolutely suck at painting so I'll keep that to myself and just tell you what I thought of them! They're quite pigmented and in about two coats your nails are completely covered which is awesome. They dry pretty quickly and they go on very smooth.


 Next up is the beautiful eye colour palette in Rock The Runway. It features five gorgeous shades that definitely remind me of a runway when I see them. There is a gold, bronze, silver, royal blue and a dark blue.


Here are the swatches, as you can see I applied it to just my skin and then also to the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk. I only applied two swipes of colour with an eyeshadow brush over my skin and then carried onto the base.

Starting from the top we have the dark blue, as you can see it's a bit patchy but once applied onto a base it sticks amazingly and is super pigmented. Next is the royal blue which almost seems to have a purple undertone but once applied to a base absolutely pops into the royal blue like in the palette. Next is the silver which isn't as pigmented but it isn't patchy and would be gorgeous for a pop of colour, on a base it has quite the grey undertones. The bronze is so gorgeous, it's quite pigmented and once it hits the base it gets intense and very chocolate. Last is the gold and my favourite from the palette and probably the most pigmented and consistent as it looks almost identical when it's applied to a base.


Here are the two Glowing Finish illuminating sticks in Gold and Bronze. They're incredibly creamy and blend pretty nicely. The pigment can get lost if you blend it too much since it is a cream but the sparkle stays, all depends how intense you like your highlight.


This was two runs over with the sticks on both sides, as you can see they're quite shiny? highlighty? whichever term you'd like to use, they are glam-tastic!


Here is one of my favourite products, I'm a huge fan of winged liner but I've never tried a colour other than black so this is exciting for me.


You also get a brush in the container which I personally love because, for me anyways, I like to use little brushes and it's nice to keep it all together because when you're travelling it's nice just to grab and go.


So here is the two colours of gel liner! You get a stunning gold and then a bronze colour. Unsure why the swatch here is looking a bit green, it could be because I swatched the gold first and then dipped into the darker bronze so it might have mixed a bit of the gold into there. Either way, both colours are stunning and smudge proof!


Now, here is the eight lipstick shades! The lipsticks are all gel semi-matte, they're actually the first gel lipsticks that Mary Kay has made. They also smell like fruit loops to me and I'm obsessed with that.


From left to right the shades are as follows: Mauve Moment, Rich Truffle, Poppy Please, Bashful You, Powerful Pink, Always Apricot, Midnight Red and Crushed Berry.


And there you have it! Mary Kay's 2016 Fall Line, thank you so much to Mary Kay for sending these to me!
