I kindly received some lovely PR from AVON Canada and Pixi Beauty. I’m so grateful because I love both brands so much. Its been long since I’ve posted about skincare and beauty and I’m so excited for this post.
Let youthful skin blossom with the power of peonies!
Introducing Isa Knox Anew LX Ultimate.
Avon gifted me Skincare! I’m so happy. I’ve been using the Isa Knox Anew LX Ultimate Rejuvinating serum and the Isa Knoz Anew LX Rejuvenating Dual Night Cream. The formula is infused with paeonol. It’s a unique extract that is harvested at its peak from rare peonies and processed through exclusive technology. It’s enriched with niacinamide, panthenol and other anti-aging ingredients. This formula helps with wrinkles and improves skins texture. I find that my skin is hydrated, softer and more even. The Night cream is $70.00 and the serum is $80.00 which can be purchased through an Avon representative. Check out the website if you like. AVON CANADA. Thank you Avon!
I was kindly gifted beautiful makeup from Pixi Beauty. I love Pixi and I’ve featured them on the blog before. I received a kit that includes “must-haves” to get the most radiant glow! I really love each product. The eyeshadow sticks glide on nicely and easily without tugging at the delicate eye area. The formula also blends out nicely. The palette is multi-purpose. Blushes, bronzer, highlighter and you can even use them as eyeshadows. They are creamy and soft. They blend really nicely. The mascara is bold and really grabs all the eyelashes and doesn’t smudge at all. The lip lift max gloss is so nice. Gives the lips shine and plumps them up. It smells like peppermint. It’s a lovely feeling on the lips. Very comfortable and also hydrating at the same time.
Endless Shade Stick: infused with skin-loving green tea and chamomile, this shadow stick is a multi-use, long-wearing colour that glides on like a dream! Simply swipe, blend and get going!
Lip Lift Max
Enhance your lips with an infusion of peptides to plump. Aloe to heal, jojoba to moisturize & Chamomile to soothe. Enjoy the gently cooling effect & glossy finish of this volume-moisturizing treatment. The last step? Kiss your worries away!
Large Lash Mascara
Brighten up your eyes after a long journey or simply apply for those beautifully defined eyes. This do-it-all mascara delivers extreme volume and intense colour with a smudge-proof finish so you can enjoy any activity!
Here is the makeup look that I created. A love the warm tones. I used the copper eyeshadow stick for all over the eye and the brown stick to define the eyes. I used bronzer, blush and highlight from the palette and the gloss. I love the warm tones which are perfect for Autumn. The mascara definitely didn’t melt all over my eyelids which is amazing!
Summer Glow Palette
A palette of silky-smooth shadows that offer both matte & glowing finishes! Achieve a sun-kissed, sheer glow that will flawlessly enhance your radiance.
Thank you so much to Pixi Beauty and to Avon for the lovely *gifted PR products. I’m truly grateful and love them so much. Thank you all for reading my post. I appreciate it. Have a beautiful rest of the week. Thank yoU!
I can’t believe I haven’t shared my favourites with you since Christmas! What? I’m sorry but I’ve been so busy. Since there are so many goodies that I love I tried to narrow it down to give you the best of the best!
I never thought that I would use the word OBSESSED over anything but seriously I’m Obsessed with RIVERDALE. Every since I can remember I’ve enjoyed reading Archie Comics and Riverdale is based off the Archie Comics Characters. Riverdale’s storyline includes issues like murder, bullying, backstabbing, trust and of course love.
I also watched and really liked 13 Reasons Why. A very dark and really powerful series. 13 Reasons Why is a very important series in my opinion. A lot of people don’t realize what students are faced with everyday in schools and we need to be more aware and involved with issues such as bullying, mental illness and depression.
The series deals with suicide, bullying and rape. The acting is very good and the characters very believable. PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT IF YOU ARE SENSITIVE OR ARE GOING THROUGH DEPRESSION OR HAVE A MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES, DO NOT WATCH. This is a very sensitive series and I’m warning you that it’s not for everyone. Also please talk to a parent or guidance counsellor if you are expering any bullying, depression and thoughts of hurting your self. Please talk to someone if you are feeling alone or can’t cope. There is help out there so please talk to someone.
I’ve also been enjoying Z Nation! A really amazing series about Zombies but super scary ones and not the kind you find in The Walking Dead. More like zombies on fast forward mode. Super fast ones and ten times uglier!
I really like the show BEYOND. I love the acting and the mystery. It’s very deep and believable. I can’t stand science fiction that has horrible acting but BEYOND is amazing! I am drawn into the show by Burkely Duffield’s acting and intensity.I also really love The Walking Dead. I’m upset that The Vampire Diaries has ended. I cried like a baby! Also the last season of Pretty Little Liars is going to start today. There are 10 episodes left and I’m so excited but sad at the same time. You can catch up to Pretty Little Liars on Netflix if you like.
Our family is enjoying watching Anne on CBC. People are hesitant when I tell them about this but I assure you this is an incredible version of Anne of Green Gables. The original is good but this version in my opinion is AMAZING! I really love the darkness and the cinematography. I love the way the camera is used in this series because it really highlights how Anne is feeling and what she’s been through. The series really captures how Anne’s past has effected her. Brilliant Series! Truly incredible and the acting is amazing! Totally recommend you watch Anne.
I’m very excited that BRAVO has announced that The Handmaid’s Tale written by Margaret Atwood will air in Canada exclusively! I’m so excited to see this Drama. I love Margaret Atwood and this is the first book that got me interested in reading novels so I’m looking forward to it.
Bravo announced today it has exclusively acquired one of 2017’s most anticipated dramas, the television adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s iconic The Handmaid’s Tale, in a deal with MGM Television. The 10-episode first season airs in Canada exclusively on Bravo, beginning with a special two-hour premiere event on Sunday, April 30 from 9 to 11 p.m. ET (10 p.m. – midnight PT). The one-hour drama continues to air Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/10 p.m. PT, beginning May 7. The entire first season launches on CraveTV this spring, following the season finale on Bravo. -BRAVO
Books and Magazines
Last month I completed the Novel Himself by Jess Kidd and I also purchased a lovely magazine called Flow. I really enjoyed the book and I’ve written a review if you like to have a look, Himself by Jess Kidd REVIEW . I absolutely love the magazine Flow. It is so creative and artistic. It has so many activities you can do as an artist but also the articles are really wonderful and inspirational. I highly recommend you check it out. If you are into the Arts you will love Flow!
I’ve been wearing and loving a lot of makeup recently. I’ve been loving my Lancôme Juicy shakers in the new flavours. They are sweet like candy! The three flavours that I adore are Snow-Tilly, Marshmattack and Cloudy Candy.
I’ve been obsessed with Annabelle Cosmetics eyeshadow chrome in Rose Gold. It’s so creamy soft and shines so beautifully! I absolutely love it! I also love Annabelle Cosmetics Skinny Eyeshadow Palette in Taupe Neutrals Basics. Im a huge fan of taupe colours and I absolutely adore the skinny palette. I have two blushes that I’m loving lately and one is Avon’s Mark Blush in the colour Mauve Forward and CHANEL’S Blush Harmony COCO CODE.
I also have a huge love for lip products recently. My favourite lip products have to be DIOR Lacquer Sticks in the colours 344 Rolling and 877 Turn Me Dior. I also absolutely love BURBERRY Liquid Lip Velvet in the colour No. 5 FAWN.
I have a huge love for AVON’s All Butter Lip Treat in the colour Bare All and Marcelle Cosmetics Rouge Xpression Velvet Gel Lipstick in the colour 885 Rosy Nude.
Two lovely nail polishes that I’ve been loving and wearing recently is AVON True Color in SMOKY PLUM and Sinful Colours 1052 ENDLESS BLUE (*inspired by 13 Reasons Why on Netflix)

I’be been really loving COCONUT CLUSTERS with Super Seeds. They are amazing in my yogourt and cereal. We buy them at Costco and they are so good! They have pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and chia seeds. They are so crunchy and delicious!
I got my hair cut! I know right? I go through times where I like change and I went short. I absolutely love short hair and its so fun to style and play with. I love long hair too but short hair is very fun. I decided to go to Trade Secrets at Scarborough Town Centre and I’m so pleased with the results. Love the customer service and I’m so happy I found a place where I can go again and again. It’s affordable and they do an amazing job.
My hair dresser’s name is Christine. She is fantastic! I brought Christine a picture of what I wanted my hair to look like and she gave me her advice. I really love how she personalized my cut to suit me. Christine really took the time with me and I appreciate it so much. I’m so grateful and very happy with the service at Trade Secrets.
New hair and I love it!
Thank you Trade Secrets and to my hair dresser Christine for the fantastic Service!
The last favourite for this blog post is AVON’s perfume PRIMA. I love this fragrance so much I’m like a cat and my Prima is my catnip! Seriously love this fragrance and I’ve been wearing this everyday. I also love the bottle so much. Very beautiful and the fragrance and design is inspired by ballet which I love so much!
Thank you all so much. I hope you enjoyed my recent favourites. I Would love to hear your thoughts so please leave some comments. I love responding to comments. Have a lovely week and don’t forget to have a look at my GIVEAWAY!
I just wanted to show you the beautiful Maybelline palettes that are out. They are beautiful and very affordable. I really love the packaging and how elegant they look. I like that I can mix and create many looks! Maybelline has a new palette coming out next month that I’m super excited to purchase. It’s THE BRIGHTS palette. I truly hope the formula is good with THE BRIGHTS palette. When creating a bold and bright eyeshadow the formula/powder has to be very pigmented to hold the bold, bright pop of colour. I truly hope it will be pigmented!
Here is the swatch for The Nudes palette. I had to swipe three times for this swatch. Even though it took three swipes for each swatch, I really like the fact that I can build the shadows to be more deep and dramatic if I like. Fallout from this palette is not a problem. I love that it has shimmery and matte shadows. Really beautiful mix and worth it!
THE SMOKES PALETTE
The Smokes palette had fallout and also took three swipes to build the colours. The three swipes didn’t bother me as much as the fallout. It’s not as good as THE NUDES Palette when it comes down to formula and pigmentation but still nice to work with.
A closer look…
I hope you enjoyed this blog post and let me know if you have these palettes and how do you like them? Do you have the BRIGHTS Palette?
*I’m a huge fan of Essence and I was contacted by the company to try these lovely items out and give my honest review. I have not been paid for this.
I’m a HUGE fan of Essence because they do not test on Animals, the quality is amazing and the products are very affordable.
Have a look at what they generously have given me.
Thank you again!
All the nail polishes are really beautiful and last long. I love the size of the bottles and the brush applicator is the perfect size. I love that they come in solid, sparkly and textured formula. The glittery and solid colours are my favourite!
The lipsticks are beautiful! They are pigmented, smooth, not sticky, long lasting and glide on really beautifully.
The Gel Liners are really amazing and waterproof. They glide on and do not pull the skin. They go on smooth and are pigmented. Very long lasting.
The two lipliners are beautiful and go on smoothly. The blue pencil is so bold and bright. Truly beautiful. The pencils do not pull on the skin they are very creamy and smooth. Very long lasting.
This is a beautiful pencil. I’ve used it a few times and I really love it. Goes on smooth and is easy to blend. A really beautiful colour and long lasting.
The eye shadows are really pretty and go on very nicely and are very pigmented.
Easy to blend
I must tell you these four are my favourite shadows. The Miss Atlantis is so BOLD and stunning! I really love these shadows and wear them all the time.
Two looks I created with all Essence Cosmetics
I used the All About Sunrise Palette
Nude Eye Shadow Palette
This palette is really beautiful. Essence shadows go on really smoothly and feel really lovely on the skin. I really love the versatility of this palette. The quality and pigmentation is amazing. I really love the way you can create a subtle look and even a dramatic look.
Essence has really beautiful lip glosses that are affordable and beautiful.
The glosses are so pigmented and not sticky at all. They feel really smooth and silky on the lips.
