Sorry Ladies Prince Harry Is Taken... Well Kinda....

Prince Harry and his charming smile made girls hearts melt during is brothers royal wedding to Kate Middleton today but back off ladies hes taken!

Yup by this woman...for now anyways... Chelsy Davy, who showed up to the wedding of the year wearing an aqua colored Alberta Ferreti dress with matching jacket. Prince Harry's on again off again gf is the daughter of millionaire safari operator in Zimbabwe and the pair have been dating the pince on and off since 2004.

Not sure what I don't love about this outfit but its not my fav. At least she didn't wear a crazy hat like Princess Beatrice though...I do however like the nude pumps!

I Go Shopping and Come Home With PINK?! Whats Going On?

I suppose I'd consider myself a "Girly Girl" but Ive never really been into pink all that much except lately. I'm obsessed with pink... not all shades, mostly just "blush" pink because its not so in you face.

See what I mean? My recent shopping adventures had me adding these beautiful, classy and VERY girly pieces to my wardrobe.

A pink boyfriend style blazer from H&M is something I wouldn't usually wear but I fell in love and for $39.95 I couldn't refuse!

Translucent pale pink bangles from Suzy Shier was on the 2 (sets) for $5.00 rack so I picked up this shade along with translucent grey ones which I love equally as much :)

Suede-like "Pure" by Alfred Sung flats were picked up at Zellers where they were having a bogo buy 1 pair get 1 free sale. These beauties PLUS another pair of flats all for $19.97! Love the ruffles they make me feel pretty!

A ruffled style scarf (ps-I'm obsessed with scarves) from Urban Behavior was also on sale for $7.99 and although it isn't "blush" pink its still a fabulous shade and the style of the scarf sold me right away.

The last item I picked up was a simple pale pink tee from Sirens for $8.00 :) Great for layering and the neck is wide enough I can wear it off the shoulder if I wanted to.

I have to say, I'm liking this obsession! Cant wait to make use of these items now :)

Whats your fav color for the upcoming season?

Givenchy Your Eyebrow Pencil May Have Just Convinced Me to Switch from Powder!

I will admit when it comes to filling in brows both on clients and on myself I have always preferred powder because I find it gives a really natural look. I may have just been converted though (at least on myself)....

I have never tried the Givenchy line even though I've walked by it dozens of times. I'm really not sure why I never stopped but I have to say I am so happy someone out there thought it would be a good idea to let me try the line because I love it!

I will post about some of the other items in another post but this post is all about Givenchy's Eyebrow Show powdery eyebrow pencil in Brunette Show.

(Pencil/brush combo)
(close up)

With the lightest touch I applied it to my brows scared I would look like I was in drag if I applied any more pressure but to my surprise it applied like a dream. While on a daily basis powder does the job it really never gives me the defined look I sometimes want but with the Eyebrow Show Pencil I now have the best of both worlds.

So there you have it Givenchy you have converted this powder only gal into a brow pencil lover!

Vasanti Cosmetics NEW Shadows,Lipshines,Bronzer & BrightenUp! Swatches

If you follow my blog at all you will know that I'm a huge Vasanti Cosmetics fan, so I'm here to introduce you all to some more wonderful, exciting & NEW products that they have just launched.


The new products consist of 4 new Lipshines (Caspian, North Sea, Red Sea, Caribbean), 4 new Eyeshadow Duo's (Mount Rushmore, Lake Louise, Statue Of Liberty, The Colosseum) and 2 brand spanking new items to the line the Brazilian Bronzer & the BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator.



Vasanti adds a serious punch of color this season with 4 bright and bold new Lipshines. They are as always lightweight, non-sticky and are infused with Vitamin E! ($15)
Red Sea a cranberry red is one of the more opaque ones that would look amazing paired with their top selling USA lipstick.
North Sea a nude beige with flecks of gold is one of my favs, its also more opaque and will look HOT this summer with a tan.
Caspian a pink grapefruit that applies sheer, adds a beautiful hint of pink that will work with almost any skin tone.
Caribbean a true hot pink that looks almost like a neon pink in the tube but applies sheer to make this bold beauty work appropriate.

These perfectly paired duo's really take the guess work out by giving you 2 complimentary shades in one pretty compact! ($20)
The Colosseum pairs a soft nude beige with a pearly pink and is going to be a true favourite for those love soft and romantic colours.
Lake Louise brings together a bold shimmery teal with a matte navy that can be used a not only as shadows but liners too!
Statue of Liberty combines a ultra rich golden bronze with a stunning shimmery green that's both deep and bold and would look amazing on those with brown or hazel eyes ;)
Mount Rushmore with its silvery taupe and matte royal purple isn't for the shy type but those who try this day to night duo will most certainly fall in love!


Glowing goddess comes to mind with Vasanti's introduction of the Brazilian Bronzer. Not only is the unique artisan inspired packaging to die for but the product applies like a dream without looking orange or streaking!
This item is a must have for anyone looking for the JLo glow this summer. It is sure to become a best seller and at $25 this bronzer is a no brainer!


Another brand new introduction to the line is the BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator. With the addition of a second skin care item (first bring the Eye Wonder) Vasanti has hit gold yet again with the BrightenUp!'s triple action formula that cleanses, brightens & exfoliates all at once.

Its clean white and silver packaging sets it apart from the rest of the line and is easy to spot with its generous size and squeeze bottle style. I was lucky enough to get a sample of this baby a few weeks ago and have added it to my daily morning face routine. Its micro-crystals are gentle on my skin and have totally eliminated my winter "dry spots" yay!

All new products will be available in select Rexall, Pharma Plus & Shoppers Drug Marts across Canada in the next few weeks but for those International readers or those who cant wait you can snap up all of these items online NOW at vasanticosmetics.com.

Is Shaving Your Face The Secret Behind Youthful Flawless Skin?

I read somewhere that Caroline Manzo from the reality show The Real Housewives of New Jersey admits to shaving her face daily in the shower to help exfoliate her skin. She swears by it and claims its the secret behind her flawless complexion.

This got me thinking, do other women do this? I had never heard of this before so of course I turned to trusty old Google and well apparently Japanese women have been shaving their faces for centuries! Upon further investigation I also read that the Late Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe shaved their faces too... not sure how true that is but it still makes me wonder just how common this practice is.
I have to admit the thought of flawless younger looking skin totally appeals to me but the thought of putting a razor to my face kinda makes me think Ill just stick to my regular exfoliation routine.

Would you or do you shave your face? Would you ever consider it in your quest for perfect skin?

That Famous Louboutin Red Sole is Getting YSL in Some Hot Water!!

We all know a Christian Louboutin shoe when we see it, greatly in part to its famous "red sole" that has been around since 1992, so its no wonder the company is a little peeved that other famous designers are jumping on the sole-train!

Louboutin is said to be suing Yves Saint Laurent because they claim that YSL is ripping off their trademark red-sole. Louboutin has built an empire around its red soles and is worried by another fashion house introducing its own red soled shoes this spring, it may lead consumers to believe the shoe is part of the Loubie collection when in fact it isn't.

Let's compare shall we?

Louboutin's
YSL's 
Similar? Yes..... but is it wrong enough to sue??
Let's hear your thoughts....

Beauty Tip: After Washing Brushes You Should....

After washing your makeup brushes lay them flat with the bristles hanging off the edge of the counter. This allows the air to dry them from all angles and in turn makes your brushes dry faster ;)
