Recent Favourites APRIL 2017 banner gold

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’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!

BURBERRY Liquid Lip Velvet – Feature



Today I’m featuring the new beautiful Burberry Liquid Lip Velvets. I have two that were kindly sent to me for review purposes and these beauties do not need a review. I’m just here to tell you that they are perfect in every way and that I’m absolutely and madly in love with the formula. I love everything about the lip velvets and want to share every detail with you.


The packaging is beautiful! It is frosted plastic and very elegant. I love that you can see the colour. The applicator is soft and bendable. It fits perfect on the lips and glides on so nicely and softly. The formula is perfect. It is smooth, velvety, soft and creamy. It goes on evenly and is very pigmented. The formula is long lasting, it doesn’t dry out the lips and is very soft and comfortable.


The two colours that I have are “05 Fawn” and “37 Regiment Red“.


Here are the swatches for both colours.


Here I’m wearing 37 Regiment Red. This is definitely a bold and beautiful colour. I love this for going out in the evening and parties. I love wearing this with only foundation and mascara. Nothing else. This colour is a show stopper.

Here I’m wearing “05 Fawn” I love this so much. It’s a rosy nude colour and I’ve been wearing this everyday.  The formula is so hydrating also and I love it.


I definitely feel that you need to try these out. They are amazing and so creamy and feel wonderful on the lips. If you would like to see all the colours that are available check out my info post. NEW! Burberry Liquid Lip Velvet INFO
