Essie Mint Candy Apple vs Ciate Pepperminty


I recently purchased Essie's mint candy apple and noticed it was of a similar shade to Ciate pepperminty. Have any of you noticed this? 


My small Essie Nail Polish collection

3 Essie nail polishes I picked up from Winners for $5.99 each, which is £3 with tax added.

Blogging on the go

This post is about how and where/what I write my blog posts on. I do not mean the topic of my blog posts, but simply what instruments I use to get my blog post idea from my head to the internet. I mostly use my iPad to do this, infact about 99.9% of my blog posts are written on my iPad. I have the large iPad 2.

Flying by myself for the first time

In February last year I took my first international flight on my own. I can't say I was particularly scared as I was more excited to visit my boyfriend in Canada than to let my nerves over come me.

Winter coat Review

As soon as I landed in Canada I was hit with the cold brisk winds that made me want to run back into the airport and hop back on the plane back to the UK. There were even icicles on the bus, that took me downtown and it was only October!

ASOS sunglasses review

If you are a regular follower of my blog you will know that I accidentally scratched my favourite sunglasses around Christmas time 2013. I love to wear sunglasses all year round especially when I am driving as there is nothing worse than driving with squinty eyes.

Applying base coat and top coat does it make a difference?

The simple answer is yes! Although I feel like it takes forever to apply all three coats. I use the LA colours base coat and the Essie good to go top coat.

10 things I don't miss about London

Having written my 10 things I miss about London post I felt like I could not do a 10 things I don't miss about London post. Maybe some of the things I say here you might agree with. Tell me if I miss anything out.

10 things I miss about London

Before I moved to Montreal I lived in London for 9 years and part of me misses being there. Any time I see pictures or videos of it I think about being there.

Maybelline BB cream - Twitter Win!

A few weeks back, actually nearly a month and a bit a go I stumbled upon the Canadian Beauty Blogger chat on Twitter.  I didn't even know it existed, but I am so glad I have found it. There are plenty of Canadian Beauty Bloggers in Canada and they are ever so friendly. The chat takes place every Thursday between 7 - 8pm EST.

Ardene tights VS Primark Super Cosy Tights

I bought Primark's super cosy tights last winter. My friend in work had been raving about them telling me that they are fleece lined and boy am I glad I bought these! I recently took a trip to Montrèal and I took these tights with me. It was so cold I wore my super cosy tights and my jeans.

First Empties of 2015

I thought I would do something a little different this year and write some posts I've never written before, such as an empties post. I know they are big in the YouTube world and wondered if they were in the blogging world too.

Lush Halloween Bubble Bar Review

Two months ago I bought this glittery pumpkin from Lush in Montreal. The fragrance of this is strong and I love it. The smell of sweet fruits and cinnamon has fragranced my wardrobe for the past month, which is a reason why I haven't used it.

OOTD's of 2014

I was looking through my draft posts last week and discovered this post, instead of deleting it I thought I would share it, even though it is pretty short.

Kate Moss Rimmel 110 lipstick

I have finally found a lipstick in a colour that is not too bold for me and I bought it. I bought it along with my Maybelline Nudes Pallet and my Rimmel mascara on 12th December.

Rimmel Super Lash Mascara

Whilst I was in Pharmaprix buying my Maybelline The Nudes Pallet I also picked up this Rimmel Extra WOW Lash Mascara in 003 extreme black. I thought it was going to be $8, but it was on special for less than $4.

My Real Techniques collection end of the Series #10

Well if you have reached this point then you'll know I have finished my Real Techniques series. Over the past 2 to 3 weeks I have published posts on my new make up brushes from Real Techniques. All of the brushes I have bought were a lot cheaper here, in Canada, than they were back home in the UK.

My purple brushes - all of my posts are linked below

Real Techniques Series #9 - sponge for £4.44

I have high hopes for this sponge as it seems to be well reviewed, like the rest of the Real Techniques range, in the beauty blogger world.

Real Techniques Series #8 - kabuki brush for £5.72 and lip brush £5.08

Next up is the Real Techniques kabuki brush and lip brush - both part of the travel range. I love the fact that both of these brushes have lids with them. There are few things more annoying than brushes without a lid. I hate otherwise avoidable damage or dirtiness caused by miscellaneous bag contents.

Real Techniques Series #7 - eye brow Brush for £3.71 and silicone eye liner pencil £5.08

I went for an explore to Radisson Metro stop in Montreal and found a mall there called Place Versailles. It is a large mall and has many shops including Target, Pharmaprix and Winners. On my trip to Winners just before Christmas I saw the Lash Brow Groomer hanging from the hook and picked it up.
