Hi All,

Decided to harmonize all of my 'blognames' by moving to Wordpress as my 'name' on blogspot was taken! I'll cross-post links for anyone following me with Google Friend Connect, but please add to your dashboards!

Daiso + Drugstore Makeup that Loves You Long Time

Daiso Blush + Sleek Oh So Special

Consider this my 'not-just-a-brand-snob' post ;). While I adore most high-end brands, at some point after all the fall collections come out I reach saturation and I just can't look at counters anymore. I don't want to discuss new products with SAs, and max out on even reading reviews OF new collections on blogs.

But do I stop buying makeup? Of course not :P

Lately I've really been interested by 'budget'/'drugstore'/'high street' makeup (I'll refer to it as drugstore for the rest of this entry since that's how I think of it) as it's less than  half the cost of my favourite high end brands and if it doesn't work out... well it's all pocket change, really!

Thankfully this post is all about 'hits' for me. XD; The stuff I don't like just gets given away before I can post about it!

Chanel Fall 2011 Makeover at Holt Renfrew

Chanel Fall 2011

After what felt like WEEKS of waiting Chanel Fall finally hit all the counters in Calgary (and downtown, at least, all on the same day)! Now if you follow me on twitter you've probably seen my numerous assertions that I had no 'lemmings' from Chanel fall - and I didn't - BUT I have a weakness for attending makeup events at Holt Renfrew as I always  have a lovely time and I'm rarely disappointed in the results. 

So of course, when Kim called me to let me know that they were having a special event for the new products with Jason, their national trainer, I signed up (knowing I'd probably end up with lemmings as a result).

Armani Eyes to Kill Makeover at Holt Renfrew

Armani Makeover

Giorgio Armani cosmetics is one of my favourite cosmetics lines and this is largely due to the excellent service I always receive at Holt Renfrew! The girls at the counter are awesome about contacting me with info about new products and events and every time I've had my makeup done at the counter I've loved the experience! Last week I went to check out their newest products that they finally had all the testers for: the Gloss D'Armani and the Armani Eyes to Kill!

This is Rachel, she's my new Armani SA and she is fantastic. Lovely and patient, we had a great afternoon chatting about the line as she's brand new to it!

Vancouver 2011 + IMATS

I was in Vancouver a couple of weeks ago to visit Christine and Sheila, and it just so happened that IMATS was that weekend too! Here are a handful of my favourite pics from the 4 days I spend in Vancouver, but the link to the photoset is at the bottom!

I didn't take very many pictures since other than the ocean, Vancouver does look a lot like Calgary building-wise, haha.

International Make-up Artist Trade Show

We were a little later than expected, but we made it!

NYX Eyeshadow

The NYX booth was by far the prettiest. So many eyeshadows! I've never seen so many in one place before o_O And this was just one corner of the stand!

Winner of IMATS Student Competition

Every time I look at this pic, I marvel at the makeup. The lines look so crisp!

Burrard Inlet

Kelsie and I on the Burrard Inlet cruise :)

Waiting in Line at IMATS

Sheila and I waiting in the 2.5 hr long MUFE line! We lucked out, it was even longer after we went through! I'm only wearing eye makeup here as Vancouver made all of my skin peel :(

Burrard Inlet

Christine and I on the Burrard Inlet cruise. As I pointed out to her, we finally have a pic where we are both looking at the camera, AND where you can tell we are two different shades!

Burrard Inlet

It was actually gorgeous and sunny our last 3 days in Vancouver. Pretty lucky :)

More pics under the cut!

Harry Potter Colour Tag: Ravenclaw

Found on Google Images
This week on Twitter my favourite girls (@Yumeko55, @CuratorofWHB, @Macnunu and @vanityfashionis) and more were discussing the end of the Harry Potter movie series. I am a HUGE fan of the Harry Potter series, both the books and the movies, and I willingly admit that I sobbed through Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. I grew up with the books and the credits at the end felt like the end of my childhood.


To celebrate and commemorate the end of such a world-changing, fantastic series, the girls and I decided to play colour tag and pay tribute to the houses of Hogwarts and the various Wizarding schools. I was tagged with Ravenclaw :)
