Giving thanks to family, food, fashion and fall


9152014224544

I know we just paid homage to my favourite shade of all time but this past Thanksgiving weekend played a big inspiration on my beauty, style and let’s be honest — food choices.

I spent the wonderful weekend eating a LOT of amazing food (most of which involved colours of orange, cream and brown — I love cheese and carbs).

{Fall favourites}

Suffice to say my favourite shade when it comes to autumn (fall) is burgundy. What, you didn’t know?! From berry hues of handbags to deepened wine lips I’m all about mixing elements of this gorgeous autumn appropriate shade in to my wardrobe.

It lends itself marvellously to shades of black, mustard, cream and brown. Chocolate eyes and wine lips…one of my favourite looks for autumn.

How was your first? MAC lipstick: Ruby Woo


MAC lipstick ruby woo matte

 {Perfect pout}

My first ever MAC product graced my teen make up bag back in 2004 (oh god it’s been a decade). A friend’s mum saw my love for her lippie and treated me with a trip to the MAC (department store) counter back home to get something conservative for this young beauty enthusiast. Of course I went with a dupe for Star Nova – a pearlescent, mauve. This was back when the lipglosses were in squeeze tubes. Le sigh…

Kerastase Discipline on frizzy, Moroccan curls


I count myself lucky for being Moroccan. Beautiful land, captivating beaches, scents and colours that provoke a myriad of senses and best of all, some of the best food I’ve tried on this planet. Being Moroccan has it’s charm but the one thing I don’t love — the naturally frizzy hair that most of us are born with. I say most all bar one of my family members boasts a head full of curly locks.

All this to say if anyone is going to test Kerastase’s taming treatment I’d say it stood a fair challenge avec moi…

How to calm a breakout or bad reaction to a product


I love beauty, I really do. But despite what you may think there are some days I curse it. Those days are usually a result of waking with a rash on my skin that makes it unbearable to face the day. Pun intended!

Trying so many different products makes me prone to this terror though through my mishaps comes a concoction of products that have finally helped my skin clear up within a couple of days.

What really prompted me to do this was my reaction I had to a combination of meds I was taking after having my wisdom teeth out. I woke with bumps all over my face and quickly got rid of them for a TV segment that was two days later. THIS WORKS.
