Dear September…

My heart is open

Full of emotions

A little anxious and worried

Online learning

Everything is different

All around us

Nothing is the same anymore

Masks and distancing

Fear and Government

2020 is a real mess

I’m wondering who and why

Have we forgotten where this started and why?

Who’s to blame for the downfall of humanity?

Many lives lost

Many loose their jobs and homes

Is this all about control, money and power?

God I hate politics and the men that run this shit show.

Nothing will be the same anymore

Or maybe it will be okay?

This is affecting people in more than one way

Mental Health is a huge issue as well.

I truly pray and hope that things will be okay.
I’m trying to stay hopeful and positive…trying.

“I am a detective, I am a decipherer, and I am a finder of lost souls. My life is my own. And the future is up to us.” – Enola Holmes


The character Enola Holmes believes that our future is up to us. I don’t know why but this brings tears to my eyes. Is our future up to us? I hope we can be free again to travel, to go to places, to hug one another. I hope that we can one day get together again without having fear.


Travelled to Stratford Ontario

A busy little place full of commotion and life.

Social distancing in effect. Every shop had hand sanitizer and everyone wore masks.

I took these pictures of less crowded areas but the place was busy as can be.

Great book stores and the river is beautiful. It wasn’t quiet that’s for sure.


I kindly received beautiful *Gifted items in September.

Thank you to PIXI Beauty and AVON.CA

New Sateen Dreams Glimmershadows. They are so pretty and easy to use. FMG Glimmershadow Liquid eyeshadow Buildable Silky Cream Formula glides on effortlessly for a soft, subtle sheen that lasts all day. Water-resistant Crease/smudge-proof, Paraben/Phtalate sulphate free. 2ml $14.00 Avon.ca

Pixi Beauty eyeshadow palettes and blush quads are so stunning! The quads have two blushes, a bronzer and highlight. I love to mix them up and use a bit for eyeshadow sometime and even add the bronzer in the blush for a darker tone. No rules here. Freedom to mix and do what you like. I love these colours for Autumn. So beautiful!

HARD CANDY MAKEUP LOOK AND WINNER!

I won HARD CANDY makeup and did a little video trying them on. I also wanted to mention quickly that I will be posting all videos on my main channel from now on. I want to bring beauty and vlogs in one channel. So if you follow my VLOG CHANNEL please continue to watch for my VLOGS on my MAIN CHANNEL. Thank you so much.

In the latest vlog video I mentioned that I’m hosting a giveaway and the winner would be picked today. Here is the winner! I used a random comment generator. Congratulations Joy Mills!

In this makeup look and in the video I used the HARD CANDY Kissed by the Sun Palette which I really like! It gives a lovely warmth to the complexion and a glow. I also used the Hard Candy Glitteratzi eyeshadow duo. I used the lighter side of the Aurora Skies. A beautiful colour. The formula a of the Glitteratzi is really nice and doesn’t budge at all.

I also love that when it dries the glitter doesn’t fall everywhere. Really lovely formula and I look forward to playing around with all the colours. I also used the shadow spheres in the colour palette 1313 and the spheres 1, 3, 5. I used the eyeliner stroke of gorgeous in the chrome ‘Bronze Champion’. The eyeliner is so creamy and soft and glides on nicely. The colour is perfect and bold.

I also added the prettiest highlight on top of the existing highlight. You can never have too much in my opinion! 1307 Rose Gold Highlighter. It gives a lovely glow.

What I really love about this makeup look is the light reflects so beautifully off the makeup pigmentation and the highlight really glows nicely and naturally. A natural soft glowing makeup look is perfect for this cold winter. Just what I needed!

I’m really grateful that I won this makeup. Truly grateful and thank you so much to HARD CANDY. I received a few pieces that were duplicate. So congratulations to Joy Mills for winning!

Thank you all and have a lovely weekend!

STYLE! FASHION! BEAUTY!

Cool temperatures are here and I’m happy to share new fashion, hair and makeup  pieces that I’ve been wearing and loving. I feel my style and the pieces I wear say a lot about my character don’t you think? I personally like to wear one piece that is an accent piece. Like a Sequin Skirt with solid colours or a printed cami that has a bit of a wild flare! Patterns and textures are a must for me. I have a huge love for texture, materials and pattern combinations.

I’m wearing a quarter length sleeve top in black from ZARA. Necklace, The Mayan Beauty Layered Tassel Necklace has Multiple rows of faceted beads which create a unique layered look. 52 cm L with 9cm extender $29.00.  The Brush Sequins Skirt, AVON (Swipe up for teal sequins, swipe down for gold. Wear it Solid, create a pattern.) Any Which Way Skirt is $54.00. Outer Shell: Nylon; lining; polyester. I’m also wearing tights and boots from WINNERS. I would pair this outfit with Angela Roi  ZURI TRAVEL POUCH WITH AISHA GIRAFFE – in BLACK. 5% of each sale from the Aisha Giraffe Collection goes to the Wild Nature Institute to help giraffes.

Our mission and our love for the most majestic animals led us to ‘Aisha’. The perseverant giraffe once injured by poachers, who pushed through and became the respected leader of her pack at the Lake Manyara National Park. As our next step, we are supporting the Wild Nature Institute to raise awareness and help conserve the rapidly declining Giraffe population in Tanzania, preserve their habitat and protect them from other surrounding dangers. ANGELA ROI

As for my hair I’m very pleased with the the shine, feel and texture. I really want to try eSalons Custom Hair Colour. It’s a “professional-grade color that delivers rich, long-lasting results and 100% gray coverage.” Sounds pretty exciting to me and very affordable. Have you tried it before? Let me know if you’ve tried it.

I’ve changed my hair routine! I wash my hair less, down to two times a week. I spend more time working the product in. I’m usually very fast and don’t take the time to really massage my scalp and I’ve also increased the time that conditioner stays on. I find this has really helped with the texture of my hair. My hair is more hydrated and shiny. I also enjoy adding oils and giving my hair a lovely treatment every week.

Here are a few tips and tricks to help your hair.

If you haven’t read my previous review have a look Les Soins de Jacynthe Makeup Launch 2016. I was kindly sent a lovely foundation, a beautiful bright and vibrant nail polish and a stunning and glowing highlighter.

“Maison Jacynthe was founded in September 2014 by Jacynthe Rene, an actress and producer known for her roles in the Adventures of Pluto Nash, memories Unlocked and Snake Eyes. She has an online magazine http://www.maisonjacynthe.ca/ and has published three books in the last four years. Jacynthe has been featured in Women’s Health, Clin D’oeil and LaPresse. In spite of launching in 2014, Maison Jacynthe was crafter over 30 years ago by Luc Larivee, an aromatherapist who has been working with the most coveted oils around the globe. Nearly 60, 000 people in Quebec turn to Jacynthe an her team of experts for advice on health, detox diet, and natural beauty. What’s incredibly about Maison Jacynthe is that our products are made without chemicals (no petroleum byproducts, no artificial fragrances or preservatives). Only 100% natural and active ingredients exist in our like. Maison Jacynthe is primarily composed of precious plant oils that contain essential fatty acids, dozens of carotenoids, natural Vitamin E, and essential oils (of therapeutic grade) used for their fragrance and anti-wrinkle properties.” -Maison Jacynthe

This is the new fluid foundation that smells so amazing and has a light coverage that feels light and natural. It feels dewy and feels very hydrating. I love wearing a light coverage foundation and really love how this feels on the skin. So comfortable and dewy.  “the fluid foundation is easy to apply. It lightly unifies the complexion. Its borage oil and coffee base formula protect and moisturize the skin. Its smooth texture with a light scent of argan makes it essential for your daily makeup. Available in 5 shades: 01 Porcelain, 02 Sand, 03 Cream, 04 Golden, 05 Hazelnut.” The 01 Porcelain is perfect for my skintone. I’m so happy that it’s not too pink or too yellow. It’s just the right tone for me.

Here is a portrait of me wearing the foundation the blush and lipstick from Maison Jacynthe. The blush and lipstick can be seen in my previous article Les Soins de Jacynthe Makeup Launch 2016

Next I have the loveliest nail polish and the colour is  PORTOFINO a vibrant and beautiful orange. The first moment I saw this colour I said YES! I love orange and this is the perfect bright happy orange. Not only do I love the colour I love the brush as well. It fits perfect over the nails and glides and distributes nail polish perfectly.

I love a good highlighter. Highlighters make me very happy and this one is absolutely stunning! This is NEW! This is the Illuminateur in 02 Lune Rose. It is so beautiful and illuminates perfectly.  I love how it glows and really gives the perfect highlight.

The natural illuminators are long-lasting and give a radiant and structured complexion. Formulated with coffee and corn extracts, macadamia and apricot oil, they will give your skin brilliance and hydration. The illuminators have a soft and silky texture well pigmented for a luminous complexion.- Maison Jacynthe
