*Biolage - Live Raw

Good morning loves.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Monday. I had to drag myself out of bed this morning after about three of my alarms went off.

A while back Biolage and Peersway sent me two products from their new "Live Raw" range.
I was not required to write a blog post but decided to anyways.

I received their Texturizing Styling Spray & the Smoothing Styling Milk.
 The Live Raw products are created with 98% -99% natural origins and don't contain parabens, silicones, artifical colors or fragrances. Organic ingredients for happy, healthy hair.

Texturizing Spray -  Infused with Matcha green tea this is supposed to give hair 24 hour volume with a soft touchable texture. I have flat, fine and overall lifeless hair to be honest so texturizing sprays never do anything for me. I wish I could say I had a great experience with this but unfortunately products like this do nothing for me. It's far better suited with people who have naturally thick and wavy hair.

Styling Milk - The styling milk is infused with oat and honey. I had far more success with this then the aforementioned product. You rub it in your damp hair after showering but before blow drying. I don't usually blow dry my hair as I like to use as little heat as possible on my hair. For the sake of the blog though I gave it a shot. I used more on my ends than near my scalp and after drying my hair was silky soft and a lot more manageable! My fine hair takes all of a second to tangle itself in to multiple knots so this helped keep it at bay.

What do you use to make your hair more manageable?

Aritzia Wishlist #1


Oh hello loves.

With Christmas lingering just around the corner I'm on a bit of a spending ban. I don't know why but I love to torture myself. When I put myself on a spending ban I proceed to peruse my favorite websites/clothing retailers to see what I would like to purchase in the future.

Aritzia is a Canadian born brand that was founded in Vancouver, British Columbia.
I adore Aritzia but their price tags are not always budget friendly. My family gifts me an Aritzia gift card every Christmas so why not start the wish list early?

Talula Cardigan - I bought one extremely similar to this last year in white and it's honestly one of the warmest sweaters I've ever owned albeit being a tad itchy from the wool.

Wilfred Sweater -  The scallop hem on this is what caught my eye. It makes it stand out among a sea of regular sweaters. I like that it's cropped as it would pair great with some high waisted pants.

 TNA Shirt - This is more of a I just need some warmer winter wear.

Wilfred Sweater - They have this in a gorgeous baby blue color which I love. Again, I really am lacking in the winter sweater department.

Bodysuit - I know, body suits are inconvenient for a lot of things but they really can add some extra dimension to an outfit and are great for layering.

Plaid Shirt - Plaid, the classic staple that everyone needs at least one of, or ten.

Pom Pom Hat - Beanies are perfect for winter or if you're having a bad hair day.

There you have it the items I'm currently lusting after. I seriously need to begin building a better winter wardrobe.

TOPSHOP Wishlist #2


Topshop, I'm so happy you finally have a stand alone store in Alberta. Oh, how long I've waited.

I think European stores have such gorgeous and different pieces from what's on the market in most of the Canadian/American stores. Zara & Topshop being two of those. Topshop recently (three years ago) opened a stand alone store in Chinook Centre and I coudln't have been more excited. Albeit being in there numerous times I've yet to purchase much. Hence my second Topshop wish list!

Suede Boots  - These boots while simple still have the ability to make an outfit. I honestly don't know if there's such a thing as too many pairs of boots.\

Plaid Peplum - Okay, so I adore the look of peplum tops yet....I own none? Maybe it's time I tried out a new style on myself.

Sequin Bodycon - The instance I saw this my mind jumped to New Years Eve! Glitter is always appropriate on that night.

Cross Body Bag - I'm more of  carry my life in my bag kind of girl but sometimes having a smaller option around is handy.

Cropped Knit - I want to step out of my comfort zone and try wearing more daring items. I am quite body self conscious but I do think a cropped knit like this would look cute paired with my high waisted disco pants or anything high waisted really.

Embroidered Skirt - Embroidery is the trend I've yet to try and while I'd love to get my hands on some embroidered boots this skirt is calling my name.

What's your favorite store?

Vichy Quencing Mineral Mask

Hello loves.

Winter, the season of dry & dehydrated skin. For me winter only exacerbates my already problematic dry skin. I'm always looking for something to soothe the thirst my skin requires and it's a daunting task.

I actually spotted this mini mask from Vichy on my mom's vanity and noticed she hadn't been using it so naturally I asked her if I could have it.
It's the Quenching Mineral Mask from Vichy which is formulated for dry skin types.

It's unlike any mask I've used before, you pat it into your skin and let it sit for five minutes then you're to massage the excess in. I love the feel of this mask! As you apply it, it soothes & leaves a cooling effect on your skin which lasts as it soaks in. For me, even before the five minutes was up my skin had sucked in all the possible moisture it could obtain. It left me with little to no excess to rub in so I don't think it's quite heavy enough for me during these cold, dreary winter months. When summer comes you can bet I'll be purchasing a full size of this! The gel texture and cooling effect of this mask captured my attention, I definitely want to see what other skincare products Vichy has to offer.

What do you recommend from Vichy?
