Beauty Q&A


1. Eye Lash Curler? Nope, I try but it never really works. Someone once said you should warm it up with a blow dryer.  I just don't have the patience.  I need my fake lashes back.

2. Fave Nail Shade? I love a classic French Manicure.

3. Fave Lipstick Shade? Anything in a browny nude..right now my fave is by Anastasia- I can't remember the name.

4. Blow Dry or Air Dry? Ideally air dry- my hair is so thick that blow drying takes forever and I end up sweating all my makeup off.

5. Artificial Nails? Yup, I am fortunate to have a great friend who does them so I get a coffee visit friend visit every 5 weeks for my gel nails.

6. Foundation: Just the Senegence tinted moisturizer and I'll add a tad of foundation if it's a fun night out.

7. Hair Up or Down?  With extensions I wear it down a lot but I also default to a loose braid.
Me, my extensions and cat scarf

8. Bar Soap or Body Wash? I love Occitane's Almond Body Oil.

9.  Bath or Shower?  Either or. I like to relax with a bath but typically I shower.  We only have a shower in our ensuite, so I bathe downstairs if I want to.

10. Fave Body Lotion: Currently the body butters from the Body Shop

11. Do you wear perfume? Yup, I only have rollerballs and my go-tos are Bobbi Brown's Beach or Daisy by Marc Jacobs.

12. Do you shave your leg everyday? HA. Nope. Like once a month.  Once upon a time I went 3 months without shaving my legs.....

13.  Fave Lip Balm: Not really a balm but I love the Christian Dior nude lip gloss.

14. First wore makeup? I remember my mom teaching me when I was in Grade 7 and she used Mary Kay products.

We're going to be talking lots of fun beauty themed stuff in March- come join us!


  1. I haven't had a french manicure in forever and I love them. Now I want one. Also, I want a cat scarf.

  2. Blow drying my thick mane requires a lot of emotional strength pn my part so i hear you!! I did a keratin treatment and it makes a bit difference though!

  3. I want fake lashes so bad. Where can I get that cat scarf, real fur, no doubt, lol. CUTE!

  4. Ugh, I can never get eye lash curlers to work either. And nope, a hot metal eye lash curler actually sounds terrifying. Nope nope nope.

  5. I wish I could go so long without shaving! I itch like crazy if I don't do it regularly!

  6. Three months!!!! O. M. G. I guess we are on totally opposite sides of the world on that one, huh?! Heated metal near my eyeball... no thank you!

  7. 3 months, that is AMAZING! then again, I've probably gone quite some time... honestly, who has time to shave?
    YES to the SeneGence moisturizer, it's so so so good!!

  8. Ohh I’ve heard great things about Occitane’s Almond Body oil. I’m always down for a good body butter. I also love Daisy by Marc Jacobs. Can you believe I’ve never wore make up! I played with lipstick when I was a teenager but that phase ended quickly.

  9. No one ever taught me to do make up. I wish I remember how I figured it out!


Have a lovely day!
