A few products have been sitting on my desk for a little too long lately so I thought I’d make a point of sharing my desk side essentials.

Whilst hard at work I feel like there’s always a place for a nice candle. During the day I’m burning Hobnail Waterlilly candle from Chapters Indigo it’s so clean and fresh and makes a clean apartment feel like bliss.

Also on hand is my adorable “Be Happy” notebook from Chapters. Sometimes we all need a reminder and I still feel like there’s always a place fro handwritten lists and notes, don’t you? For touch up’s YSL’s Rouge Volupte Lipstick in Peach Passion.

We all know I like to spend a pretty penny on Diptyque candles but after my Christmas haul I thought it best to burn the last of my minis (Tubereuse) during these summer nights.

My Milk BKR from Blossom Lounge holds a firm place on my desk. It matches the white decor and forces me to stay hydrated while I work.

I recently received Essie’s Summer 2014 Collection, Haute in the Heat and I’m keeping them close by in case I need a quick touch up before an event. Naturally I have nail polish remover close at hand too 😉

BKR obsessed. My boss makes fun of me for it. Kitten (baby pink) has always been by my MAC’s side but in th elast couple of weeks I welcomed Boy (baby blue) and Chip (Mint green). Now I have no reason not to be hydrated this summer, right? These beauties are all available at Blossom Lounge.

Chanel the '90s Model

{’90s Make Up Style}

This week’s Fashionmagazine.com challenge was all about ’90s make up. To me 1990s beauty is all about Sarah Michelle Gellar à la Buffy The Vampire Slayerand Cindy Crawford (who still, by the way, looks exactly the same). When I think of these women I think of the way they used natural shades to emphasize what they already have. For this look, I started my base with my newest obsession: Revlon’s Nearly Naked foundation. I love the old school powdery finish it leaves on my face even though it’s a liquid, yet it still has that modern day touch of a brightening effect for a healthy glow.

{Delicate Beauty}

MAC’s newest collection has embodied the essence of natural and innocent looking colours. The make-up brand are constantly releasing new products but this one is note-worthy for it’s simplicity and shades. They’re perfect for the summer and I’m almost certain the nail colours will fly off the shelves. The “prettiness” of the shades makes you want to have them all, it’s a little tempting to smuggling them on to my make-up shelves. “What do you mean honey? I’ve had these for years…”. Released across Canada today I can’t wait to get my fingers in them.

{Bronzed cheeks with a pink lip}

6-week long summer vacations on the beaches of Morocco were spent with my Guerlain lipgloss stapled to my beach bag. As a teen, I was in love with the browns and golds that came with summer but as I get older I’m finding more and more that the look doesn’t brighten my face as much as I would like it to. For my recent trip to Hawaii, I found that various shades of pink were my go to shades. This time it was only a one-week vacation – bittersweet in comparison but blissful nonetheless. Regardless of the short time spent there I managed to take 8 different shades of pink, just in case…
