it’s been a while…

10:58 PM

Hello my favourite strangers!!

I have been very absent for quite a few reasons, funny how life works like that.
I was going to revamp my blog, got some really awesome contacts and give things my best.
I landed a job I love and wanted for a while…Things were looking pretty awesome.
Then BAM. 
Straight up.
 I am going to still continue on, I am trying to get a grip on many things but I do love the blogging community. As well Instagram and Twitter….boy those have sadly lost everyone…. 
I am not going anywhere. I am trying to save my most important little Furbabies life, help myself, keep working hard and every other tornado thrown my way.
I hope I can post soon, I have some fun things coming up!!!

Please tell me how you guys have been!!



Zoella Beauty New Jelly & Gelato Review

12:01 AM

 Heellllloo new Zollea Beauty products!!

This is always an exciting thing for us beauty lovers when a brand we love and support have new products out! I have always been so impressed with Zoella's products and a fan of her work. She seems down to earth and I will admit I am envious of all her hard work and what she has accomplished at such a young age,
Enough with that! On to the goods!

As if this isn't fun, a Menu of the new line!

In Canda Zoella's products will be released at London Drugs around mid-August, I CANNOT wait to purchase the body spray and from other reviews, I have heard the body pudding is great!

I just love the packaging! Fresh, simple, fun and modern!

A cute note from Zoe :)

SHOWER SHAKE-Moisturizing body wash. 
First things first, the packaging I love!
The Shower Shake is a nice rich LOVELY smelling moisture rich body wash that I have been using daily!

I found this name a little interesting but cute. This was similar to the moisturizing body wash but not as creamy as you can see in the bottle. The smell is SO GOOD! It is again similar scent but a little more fruity I think and I LOVE that!

PINK BATH WAFERS- Moisturising Bath Fizzer

Moisturising Bath Fizzer, that looks like those DELICIOUS Wafers I used to eat as a kid! The packaging does at least. I will totally admit I still eat them LOL

Out of the package, it is even nicely designed!

The size I find pretty large! Beside my iPhone 6s ( I think it is fairly big)  just for a size comparison.

Okay confession time:

I haven't had a chance to try this one out! It had been a little bit too hot for a bath and I want to make sure I use this and enjoy it because again I am in LOVE with the smell!! So I will update this part soon! 
Sadly summer is slowly walking away from my city and it's quite sad!

AND Last but not least!

This is the cutest chair in the world!!! I need to think of a super cute photo to do with this! It's one of those little extra's to just add to the package. So cute! 

I haven't completely finished the products yet but they will be used up within the month but I would recommend them if you love anything that smells good, make sure next time you see these you give them a good smell! I will check out some of Zoella's other Jelly & Gelato items and let you guys know how they are. 

Farleyco Does have a good range of Zoella Products (keep in mind Jelly & Gelato is new and isn't out quite yet in Canada or just select places so far.) as well if you are ordering online as well as some other goodies!

Have you had a chance to try anything out yet? 
If not which one would you want to try?

Lash Up!

12:01 AM

Lash Up is a new to me Eyelash Extension Studio.

It is absolutely gorgeous inside! 

It’s a nice calm environment where you know you will leave feeling happy!

I had great service and a 40% discount price (just for July) so you cannot go wrong.

This photo is older but this is my natural lashes with mascara and curling them for 13 minutes straight as they sure like to be pencil straight! GRR

When you have nice lashes your eyes just smile more!

Okay let’s be real about a couple things, my skill of taking a shot of my eye- 0 out of 10! my bottom lashes, horrid! So ignore that!!
Seriously looks like I have false lashes on, like where I pull them off of they fall off through the day because I suck at putting them on LOL. So these babies are absolutely gorgeous!

Everything was so pretty and girly I just loved it! I even get half off my next fill!

I am super stoked about them since lashes and lipgloss are my loves.
They are mink lashes rather than synthetic so that is amazing too! I can’t even believe they feel like natural lashes and have curl! I will be interested to see how long they last compared to the hard crunchy ones!

I know this is a newer company in my area, so I don’t know where you can go but if you have one near you for sure check it out as well always do your research with eyelash extension since it is your eyes and bad things can happen.

What do you think??
Have you ever had eyelash extensions before? How did you like them?

When life happens…..

8:22 PM

Hey my favourite strangers!

I haven’t abandoned my blog. 
A very fun thing happened and I finally have the job I wanted for years…. many many hours, but that is important of course….
Then the sad and the bad :(

I have NO words how my life has been crumbling, my furbaby as he is my child isn’t well. 
So I am not…
Vet appointments, meds and a lot of tears, he is finally seeming to do ok, as for me well not so much. I need my time as we all do. He is my heart,

Please think good thoughts for my little guy…


Be back soon,

How to keep Unnatural Hair Colors Vibrant

12:01 AM

If anyone has been following me for a while on any social media you will know I am a huge fan of fun coloured hair, it has been quite the process along the way but I found it super fun going from my black box dye hair colour to my current reverse ombre pink to dark pink. 
I have a good band about 3/4 down in my hair that is permeant pink so I can only play with the purples, blues and pinks until it grows out but I am still having fun.

I wanted to share a couple tips of mine that I use to keep my colour lasting a little longer in between salon trips since it can be quite costly, especially when you are starting from the worst spot… box black dye!
These are terrible photos but I am not photogenic so here we go…


Just some of the colour’s I’ve had :)
First things first, everything always depends on hair type/diet/the dye itself/how much effort you are willing to put into it and of course since everything is a little different for everyone so there might be some differences for others but this what I find is easy and mostly common sense.
As well I use Color Intensity | Joico Semi Permanent as my brand as I absolutely love their color selection, price and that their product is actually made to fade into beautiful colors so when you are getting to the point you need your hair done it’s really only your roots that might not be looking so nice.


1- Wash as little as possible!
2- Wash with cold Water
3- No Clarifying Shampoo’s
4- Salon products
5- Use less heat styling
6- Vibrant color + too much sun = faded hair

1. No you will not become the smelly girl with dirty hair that no one wants to be around, but the less you wash the longer your color will last, I usually only use this method for the first couple weeks because I really enjoy my vibrant colors to go to the pastel without having to do anything in between since I heart my Joico products and the beautiful way they fade.
While dry shampoo is still a must in my books, I am able to use baby powder more once the color is lighter and I find it is a little better since alcohol in products isn’t good… I know I know everything has some in it that we or at least I use but it helps to switch it up a little.

2. YIKES! Cold water… honestly when it is -30’C here I am just cringing as I HATE being so cold and the cold water on your head doesn’t feel nice but it works! DO IT!!! :)

3. NO Clarifying shampoos!! Stay clear. While they are very good to use especially if you are one to use a lot of hair products, at least try to limit your use if you feel you NEED this. I honestly maybe use one once a month and that is after my color is more faded so it doesn’t effect too much or strip too much color out.

4. Salon products are needed… I am a HUGE drug store fan as I find so many great products that are my go to’s from there but with a couple things I will use my Salon brands. This can be whatever works best for you. I am currently using Joico’s Color Endure Voilet Sulfate Free Shampoo since it is helping keep my blonde from going brassy and if you do have purple hair and ran out of dye I have tried the little trick of putting this on your dry faded almost blonde hair and it actually does add a little purple back in if you let it sit for 10 minutes, clearly it isn’t ideal but a stylist mentioned it to me once so I gave it a try! 
So I say use a salon shampoo you like, if you have reverse ombre like myself or full on bleached hair and need the purple shampoo use the one that works best for you. I switch between this one and Redkin’s Color Extend Shampoo.
This is a HUGE part of having colored hair (did I mention mine is super fine and straight?) I use Olaplaex like it is lipgloss… I am a lipgloss addict btw! I am lucky enough to have a stylist who can help me out with giving me a Olaplex No.2 Treatment while I have bleach on my roots. It IS AMAZING!!! I will do a post on it soon. It isn’t magic but if you use it regularly yo will notice your color lasts longer, softer hair, less breakage and just all around more shine! This product helps rebuild what the bleach has broken to my understanding. Again I will write up a post, it’s so worth using!
If you are unable to afford the No.2 treatment since they are pricy in salons, you can purchase No.3 that you use at home. It is not a hair masque but it will help repair damage. I use it at least once a week and sleep with it in my hair, than shampoo and condition the next day and my gosh is my hair soft!!!  Using Olaplex, my favourite deep conditioner, and a hair masque once in a while ( i also sleep in) has helped so much with the damage to my hair from bleach as well as keeping the color in.

5. We all know heat styling is just bad. So try to use a little as possible even though I LOVE my curled more when it is faded and the colors are just blending together so sometimes I am bad and use my curling wand more often, can’t always be an angel right?  I try to blow dry my hair on cool to low heat. If you are lucky to be able to air dry that is perfect!

6- Summer sunny days, we love them but our hair hates it! I sadly live where the summer doesn’t seem to exist much so this doesn’t apply to me too much but if I am on holiday’s I sometimes come home with some super faded hair which is disappointing sometimes. I don’t know anything. about these products but I googled this and found a little bit of let’s say hair sunscreen here.

I like the different tones and colors, with having the permeant pink in there I only bleach my roots when I get my hair coloured so it’s not crazy damaging as it could be.

This was a fun one, weaved foils of blue with pink purple and blonde :)

What is your favourite way to keep your locks looking colourful?

How to center your Instagram Bio 2017

12:01 AM

I am starting my blogging Instagram account up, slowly but surely so comment below your Instagram name and I will add you make sure to add you!

I have had a few messages lately from others on my Photography Instagram account asking me how I made my bio centred
I think it looks more clean and it is super easy to do.

Instagram sadly is limited with what you are able to do and with all the updates you never know when it will change. This currently is working for me.

Here is what you do:

I open the notes in my iPhone and write it in there to make sure everything looks right, then copy and paste into my bio.

You will need to copy in between the hashtags  #⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀and you will paste the empty space before each line you want. Remember you only have160 characters so it does go fast.
Once completed in notes (or whatever you use on your phone) copy all the bio in your notes (even the blank space parts) and go to your Instagram app, hit “Edit Profile” then paste it in there. Save and see what it looks like! 

I just like the look better but it’s completely personal preference, I just thought I would do a quick post since I had quite a few messages lately. 
Comment below and let me know how it looks if you give it a try!
