in may

Petit Punch VieuxMay was a month that was filled with beauty, at least in regards to my blog posts.

Floral Wedding Make-up 5I shared a make-up and wedding hair tutorial for our upcoming anniversary photo shoot, and because it’s wedding season.

il_fullxfull.597864654_fcynThere were five fashion posts last month. I think that is the most that I have ever published! I showed you what was in the store, in addition to an OOTD specifically for men. This Etsy post had a lot of lovely comments from you, readers.

Terrarium Kit DIY 1I also experimented with wood and succulents. I had a Cellphone Holder DIY, Reclaimed Barn Wood Shelving, and a Terrarium Kit DIY.

Bedroom QuoteLast, but not least, this trend of grace also extended into my personal life when I made the beautifully terrifying decision to let go of a job that I have had for the last four years. Beauty is only skin deep.

floral make-up : how to

Floral Wedding Make-up 5For our fifth wedding anniversary this year, my husband and I will be having a photo shoot at the same locations and in our same ceremonial outfits that we wore five years ago! 

When we eloped in 2010, I did everything as frugally as possible. I purchased my dress for $9.99 on eBay, bought my shoes online, found my husband’s suit on the sale rack at Sears, took our own photos, went to a nearby Justice of the Peace, had the reception at hotel (which my siblings paid for), and did my own hair and make-up. I think that our most expensive item was my daisy bouquet and my husband’s corsage. Truthfully, we ended up making money off of our wedding. Much like a Kardashian, minus the deceit and publicity.

Also unlike a Kardashian, I strove to keep things simple that day. I am a lucky girl in that I have a sister who is an esthetician and a mum who was a hairdresser. Yet, I didn’t go to either of them for our wedding. My choice in make-up boiled down to what I was used to applying on a daily basis. This year, I would like to change that, since my preference in make-up, hair, and fashion has also changed. Now, I am a bit of a flower lover. :-)

This will be my Floral Make-Up look for our wedding anniversary session.

Floral Wedding Make-up 7Products:

Benzagel Gel
Neutrogena All-in-1 Lotion

Sephora Strawberry Macaroon Eyeshadow
Sephora Urban Decay Eyeshadow
MAC Ricepaper Eyeshadow
MAC Make Your Mark Eyeshadow

Sponges
Brushes

Floral Wedding Make-up 1Steps:

1. After washing your face, apply your base products. (I use Benzagel to firm and tone my skin, and Neutrogena lotion over top to keep it clear and moisturized.)

2. Take your foundation and a sponge and apply it evenly to your face and neck. 

3. Next, apply the eyebrow tint. I use the same brown eyeshadow as on my eyes, mostly because it matches my brows, but also because I hate pencils. Sweep away any fallout with your foundation sponge.

4. Now for your eyes. Using the palest eyeshadow, cover your entire upper lid to the underside of your brow, as well as the tops of your cheekbones for extra shimmer. 

5. Next, take the light pink shadow and apply it to your upper lid and crease of your eye.

6. Do the same with the purple eyeshadow.

7. Repeat this step once more with the brown shadow. However, be sure to go lighter on your lid and a little heavier in the crease of your eye. Then, using a smaller brush, carry that color down to the underside of your bottom lid. Wipe away any fallout.

8. Take your eyeliner and make a large sweeping cat-eye. This will probably require a few coats.

9. Once you are done lining your eye, put mascara on your top and bottom lashes.

10. Next, apply blush to your cheekbones. I decided to go a little heavier since I want my cheeks to stand out.

11. The second last step is to apply powder to your entire face. This will aid in sealing your make-up.

12. Lastly, it is time for the lipstick. My favourite is my MAC pink lipstick, but red or a dark purple would look just as nice.

Floral Wedding Make-up 4Don’t be alarmed if you seem to attract the birds and the bees with this floral make-up! Not the metaphorical kind of course. Although, that would be nice as well. ;-)))

bow tie hair clip diy

2.jpgI am often on the hunt for cute hair accessories. The only problem is that they can be very expensive, and I generally only wear them a few times before I grow bored of them. I also do that with my clothes. Shoes and purses though, are another story.

Now that you have some useless insight into my personality, I’m going to show you how to make several simple, and better yet inexpensive, Bow Tie Hair Clips.

1.jpg1. Purchase small, multi-coloured bow ties (I got mine from the Dollar Store).

3.jpg2. Purchase hair clips (I prefer bobby pins).

4.jpg3. Adhere the bow ties to the clips. A glue gun will work best, but because I chose bow ties with adhesive already applied, I simply needed to peel and stick them onto the bobby pins.

IMG_65384. Once the glue/adhesive is dry, you may begin to wear them!

5.jpgThis craft cost less than $2.50 to make, and took a total of 5 minutes. That’s approximately $0.50 per minute. While those would be horrible minimum wage earnings, that’s a more than reasonable DIY experience!

we need to talk about juicing

IMG_1.jpg IMG_2.jpgIMG_4.jpgIMG_3.jpg IMG_5.jpgIMG_6.jpgIMG_7.jpgIMG_8.jpgIMG_9.jpg I first heard of juicing a few years ago when it was becoming a popular form of ‘cleansing’ among celebrities. More like a admittance to a dangerous new diet fad. These already emancipated celebs were suddenly losing even more weight at an alarming pace. Since then, I have frowned upon anyone who juices to drop the pounds. That is, until one documentary on Netflix caught my attention. It is called Fat, Sick, & Nearly Dead.

When my husband and I first came across FSND, I assumed that it would be just another film on health and obesity. The moment it started, it played as if it were a Saturday morning cartoon. I was instantly drawn in. It became real when Joe Cross, the director/protagonist, revealed that he was actually quite sick with an autoimmune disease and would be adopting a 60 day juice cleanse. While I immediately became skeptical, I was also curious to see if he could pull it off. Cross seemed like a truly genuine person who was set on ridding himself of his painful disease and numerous pills, and who was excited about regaining control over his body. You can’t help but root for him, but beyond that, I was relating to him. By the end of the documentary, I was extremely motivated to try juicing out for myself.

I have my own health reasons for beginning my juicing journey. For those of you who want to or have already tried it, you will as well. I also believe that going on cleanses is not for everyone. However, if you or I or anyone were to replace one meal with a juice every once in awhile, we would be surprised as to how much energy that we have, and how good our insides  would feel. When I do it, it’s almost as if my organs are rejoicing in the sweet, deliciousness that I have just provided them with. I know that the more I juice, the more I crave one of these simple, yet healthy little snacks. So why not try it out for yourself? #YOLO
