My name is Mikayla! I'm a 22 year old University Graduate with a passion for all things beauty. I stumbled into the online beauty community a year ago and have been obsessed with youtube videos and blogs ever since. After watching hundreds of videos over the past year I figured it was about time I joined the community and posted my own thoughts in my own little space. I'm also recently graduated, unemployed and headed for college in September.

I really enjoy all things beauty, and I really like telling my friends what I think about products so writing them down just felt natural. To me, make up isn't something that you wear to make yourself look prettier, it's something you do on yourself for yourself. It has the power to give you strength to tackle a rough day, the courage to find your inner confidence and sparkle like every girl is meant too.

Other than beauty, I love fashion. Beauty and Fashion are the keys to my heart, along with a great deal. I'm all about a decent deal, and budget shopping is my favourite.

I can't wait to start this journey with the internet and all of you!

September Instagram Lookback

Friday, 2 October 2015

For today's post I thought I would take a bit of a look back on the month of September through my Instagram feed. When I got my first iPhone 2 years ago the first app I downloaded was instagram the blackberry world did not have instagram then. I love scrolling my instagram feed, but I've been slow to the posting part- last month I sort of challenged myself to be a lot more active on the app then just scrolling multiple times a day.

1. My first post was a throwback to my time driving across the country and when we stopped at Lake Louise, in Alberta Canada, which is a huge Glacier Lake nestled in the mountains, the glacier water is what gives it the green tint to it and the sight was absolutely beautiful. 2. I also moved in with my parents over the summer, and needless to say I may have texted my mom this a few times by now, stealing her shoes in the morning. 3. I also spent a day with my two cousins who I love, we watched Pitch Perfect and ate a bunch of candy, my cousin Matt is obviously thrilled to be with 3 girls. 4. I've also been hooked on James Bay lately, his music is absolutely beautiful and I cannot stop listening to his album Chaos and the Calm (as well as One Direction but shhh) 

5. My sister was downstairs and I had finished blowdrying my hair which makes me look like a lion- and I was yelling to her, and scared her from the top of the stairs by leaning over it, and she was laughing so hard she had to sit down and then I snapped a picture. 6. My friend from school got married this month and 3 of my friends and I went to her wedding, she looked absolutely beautiful and I am so happy for her. 7. I have my certification exam in November which means I've been studying a lot- and ice cream is required as a reward for studying right? 8. My best friend and I just celebrated our 5 years of friendship- I can't believe it's been that long, and I love this feature on Facebook to look back on some of the memories. 9. Saying I'm studying sometimes means I watch the Princess and the Frog on netflix instead of studying, but that is good too, to relax and watch a disney movie.

10. I organized one of our hall closets the one that holds out of season outerwear and it's always the running joke that my mom and I have the most shoes- but this closet housed seriously my sisters shoes only, naturally I had to share it and set the record straight. 11. My sister sent me the best text in history of texts, the town we live in is getting a Nando's, you may very well see my twitter and instagram become very stereotypically British because I will be there all the time. 12. We bought some fall cupcakes when were having my grandparents over for dinner, and they were so pretty I had to share. 13. I'm working 2 jobs right now, one is a day job, which means I have to wake up early, and sometimes I need extra reminders to wake up in the morning- like 3 alarms. 14. Where I live it was too overcast to see the Blood SuperMoon that happened, but when I looked outside a couple of nights later the sky was completely orange and breathtaking, I ran to the end of the driveway in my pjs to take a picture.
