• Naturally Well Co | Review

    As a beauty blogger I have begun to reach out to brands to see if they would like to collaborate for a review. When it’s a local, Canadian brand it’s even better. I recently reached out to a brand called Natural Well Co (or cynthia_aesthetics on insta) because they looked like they had amazing bath and body products. This is an Etsy shop and can be found here.  The owner of the company was super sweet and we exchanged a few instagram DM’s before she sent me some products. She wanted to make sure I received exactly what I wanted in the scents I wanted. She would respond to my…

  • April Beauty Favourites

    To counteract all the negativity in my last post, I thought I should do a favourites post! I love rummaging through my makeup drawers and looking at all the products I’ve used this month. All of these, actually, were no brainers. I love favourites posts so let’s get on with talking about my favourite beauty products from the month of April.  My journey to find the perfect face primer has been a tough one. I’ve tried so many that I don’t find do anything for my skin. But, the Huda Beauty Complexion Perfection Base Primer is my favourite one that I’ve tried. It makes my foundation glide on like butter and…

  • Beauty Empties March 2018

    Ever wanted to see what’s in my garbage? No? Well, you’re about to. I go through product all the time and I think it’s fun to see what products beauty junkies actually use up completely. You get a really good idea of the product when you use the whole darn thing. I mostly use up skincare and body care stuff but I do finish the occasional makeup item.  If you’re interested to know what beauty products I’ve used up recently and what I think of them, keep on reading! The Good: The Simple Micellar Water is my favourite cleansing water. It also helps that it’s like $8 at the drugstore.…

  • Pamper Evening Go-To’s

    There is nothing I love more than having a little bit of self-love. I absolutely love spending a night pampering myself and doing but things I love to do. This usually includes eating chocolate, watching serial-killer documentaries, and doing the most skincare I can do.  If you want to know some of the things I do on my pamper nights, keep on reading.  Some people do pamper nights on specific nights of the weeks or on weekend nights but, since I work shift work I do them on completely random nights of the week. I try to do these pamper nights once a week or at least once every 2…

  • February Beauty Favourites

    Rounding up my favourite products of the month has to be one of my favourite things to do. Finding amazing products is one of the reasons I blog and why I love to try new products.

That means they are little in size, easy, and I know they work.  If you want to know all about my favourite products of February, read on! Lets start off with a product I didn’t travel with but I really liked this month. If you saw my Valentines day post this month,…

  • HUGE Ulta Haul

    I just got back from Miami a couple days ago but I couldn’t wait to post this haul so I can start using all of my new products. My hotel was less than a 10 minute walk to Ulta so of course, I went 3 times in 3 days. I was honestly like a kid in a candy store. I felt bad for my poor boyfriend because he had to endure me going to Ulta 3 times.  If you don’t know what Ulta Beauty is, it’s a beauty store that is only in the states. They carry drugstore and high end makeup, skincare, and haircare. They have brands that you…

  • Travel Makeup Bag Tour

    I’m on of those really strange people who loves to pack. It makes me even more excited to travel. If I could pack a week in advance, I would. But, my boyfriend probably wouldn’t like my suitcase on the floor of our bedroom for a week. So, when I got a new travel makeup bag for Christmas (shoutout to my friend Beth), I was so excited to pack my makeup for my next trip. I have gotten pretty decent at packing and I thought I would show you what are my go-to’s, how I pack, and my new fantastic makeup bag.  I always pack products that I know are going…

  • Winter Nighttime Skincare Routine

    I get questions all the time about the skincare products I use, what skincare products are the best, and about my routine. Skincare is so important, people! I don’t think some people understand that your makeup can only look so good if you don’t take care of you skin. You can spend all the money in the world on the best makeup products but, if you don’t take care of your skin, the makeup won’t look it’s best.  Since my skin changes with the seasons, it’s only right that so does my skincare. So, today i’ll be talking all about my winter nighttime skincare routine.  For me, I spend the…
