Manicure Monday | Neon Lights

Heyy girls,

Okay, so I've already shown you this color that I have on my nails this week but the camera didn't pick it up right at the time. So here is what China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy looks like (keep in mind that this color is even more neon in real life)...

Je vous ai déjà montré cette couleur de vernis à ongle que je porte sur mes ongles cette semaine, mais à ce moment là ma caméra ne montrait pas vraiment l'intensité exacte de cette magnifique couleur néon qu'est China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy (la couleur est encore plus néon en vrai)...

Fabulous Friday | Starting Over? | Recommencer à zéro?

heyy girls,

I don't know what's happening but recently I've just been out of it... I feel like I don't know what to write about anymore and I've been thinking a lot... yeah a lot...

Je ne sais pas ce qui se passe mais depuis tout récemment j'ai l'impression d'être complètement à côté de la plaque... Je ne sais plus sur quoi écrire et ça m'a fait beaucoup réfléchir... c'est d'ailleurs le sujet de cet article aujourd'hui...

I realized that I was writing for others and not what I would want to read. I know that I labeled my blog as a beauty and fashion blog but in reality I don't only have beauty and fashion as my passions; I also love food, fitness, lifestyle and recently I've been loving watching vlogs rather than watching or reading fashion/beauty stuff.

J'ai réalisé que j'écrivais plus pour les autres que pour moi, dans le sens où je n'écris plus vraiment ce que moi j'aimerais lire. Je sais que j'ai identifié mon blog comme étant sur tout ce qui touche la beauté et la mode mais en réalité je n'ai pas juste ces sujets comme passions ou intérêts; j'adore la nourriture, le fitness, tout ce qui touche à la vie quotidienne et récemment je ne peux arrêter d'écouter des vlogs plutôt que d'écouter ou lire des choses sur la beauté ou la mode. Bien sure, ils font encore partis de mes passions...

Manicure Monday | I am French

Heyy girls,

This week I decided to go with a classic manicure. Yes, you've guessed it: French Tips manicure. I used Nailtini nailpolish in Frappe and Jordana nailpolish in White to create this look.

Cette semaine j'ai décidé d'aller avec une manicure classique. Eh oui, vous l'avez deviné: la célèbre manicure française. J'ai utilisé le vernis de chez Nailtini dans la couleur Frappé et le vernis blanc de chez Jordana.

Manicure Monday | Ice Ice Baby

Heyy girls,

I think I'm going to try something new on my blog... I'm not sure how it is going to turn out but I think I'm going to do it half in french and half in english. So this post is going to be an experiment. :) Hope that all my French readers enjoy that new turn!

Je crois que je vais essayer quelque chose de nouveau sur mon blog... Je ne suis pas sure de la tournure que ça va prendre, mais je crois que je vais essayer de traduire en françcais ce que j'écris normalement en anglais. Donc, cet article est expérimental :) J'espère que mes lectrices qui parlent français vont apprécier!

So, if you've read my July Favorites 2014, well you know that I've been obsessed with this nailpolish that I bought recently at Shoppers Drug Mart which is Essie Borrowed And Blue.

Si t'as déjà lu mes Favoris du mois de juillet 2014, eh bien tu sais que je suis obsédée par un vernis à ongles que j'ai récemment acheté chez Pharmaprix. Cette couleur est Borrowed And Blue de Essie.

Back-To-School | High School Makeup Look - All Drugstore + FIRST VIDEO ON YOUTUBE

Heyy girls,

The makeup look that I've created today is very easy, but that's not it! It's also very affordable because I've decided to use ONLY drugstore products. I did my first youtube video for this tutorial because I thought it would be easier to follow this tutorial :) By the way, I know that my skin is not perfect and I don't think anyone is, plus my hair looks like crap but hey I'm human too ;) xox

Montlhy Favorites | July 2014

Heyy girls,

Wow! This month is already over... and I'm glad it is because very disappointing things happened to me this month. For example, they had to let go of some of the staff where I work and I was one of them. So, I currently don't have a job but it's okay since I live with my parents (I don't have bills to pay). I try to see the positive side of it: I'll have more time to write post on my blog and I might also start doing videos, and the most important thing: I can finally wear nailpolish.

The first product that I've really been loving this month is the Soap & Glory Hand Food Hand Cream. I did a review a couple of weeks ago (here). For some reasons, my hands have been very dry lately so this hand cream has been my life savior because I hate the feeling of dry hands.

I've also been enjoying this sunscreen from Neutrogena. To me, this is the best sunscreen you'll ever find at the drugstore. You can choose from other level of SPF (you don't have to use a 110 SPF like I do). It doesn't feel greasy on the skin and it dries so quickly, plus it doesn't break me out (I use it mainly on my face). So if you ever have the chance to pick up the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen, I would highly recommend it!

This month, I have discovered a new favorite in the mascara department. Yes, you read it right. I am no longer in love with my Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes Mascara. I replaced it with my new love of the moment: Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara (I have the waterproof version). I just love how it separates my lashes while also adding some volume. Love it.

Lately, I've been broken out a bit more than usual and I think it's because I ran out of my Micheal Todd Jojoba Charcoal Facial Scrub. So, obviously I needed a new facial scrub to get the dry skin and the dirt out of my face. I had a little sample of the Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant and I'm glad I tried it before buying another facial scrub because I'm in love with it. This is VERY exfoliating but in the good way. They say to use it once or twice a week and I totally understand why. I might do a review of this product if you're interested ;)

Review | Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette

Heyy girls,

I've been testing out this product for a while now and I'm finally ready to give you my opinion about the Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette. Let's get started!

How's the packaging?
The packaging is very sturdy and doesn't feel cheap at all. It has a magnetic closure which helps keeping your eyeshadows safe. I like the fact that there is a mirror in it, it makes applying your eyeshadows easier because you doesn't have to use another mirror. And I love the design of the top part of the palette, it's very feminin and classy.

I forgot to put a picture of it, but it also comes with a little How-To Guide where they show you 3 different looks that you can recreate with this palette.

What are the colors?
From left to right: Heaven (matte cream), Cashmere Bunny (matte medium brown), Sexspresso (matte dark brown), Silk Teddy (shimmery champagne), Push-Up (shimmery brownish dusty rose), Erotica (shimmery grayish dark brown), Nudie (matte light brown), Honey Pot (shimmery gold), Chocolate Martini (dark brown with gold reflex).

Haul | Drugstore Beauty Products

Heyy girls,

So, I went to the drugstore. Again. Please don't jugde ;)

The first thing that I picked up at the drugstore is the Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in the color translucent. I already own this product but I've hit pan, so I thought why not buy a back up? It was around 9$CA.

Then, I got a great deal on the Revlon Lip Butter in Juicy Papaya, so I couldn't resist! It was 4$CA each instead of 9-10$CA each. I almost bought more than one but there was only one color that really catch my eyes and it was this one. It is a gorgeous coral, perfect for summer.

While we are on the lip products topic, I also bought this lipgloss from Essence. To be honest, I only bought this lipgloss because I thought the stand was really cute. I wish I had taken a picture of it to show you. But basically it was all pastel with bows, really girly you know ;) It is from their Cookies & Creams collection and the color is 01 Macaron, C'est Bon!. Yes, it is French inspired if you are wondering. It was also very cheap, like 2,50$CA and I'm very happy with it!

Mini Haul | Sephora & Mac

Heyy girls,

Yes. I finally got around to it. Some of you might know (if you follow me on Twitter or on any social media sites) that I first lost my camera, then I bought a new one, and when I was to take pictures of my haul I totally forgot some of the products at my dad's. So, please excuse me for taking so much time before putting this post up :)

So, I'll just start with what I got at the Mac counter. I only got one thing but this is something that I've been wanting to try for so long... I got my first Mac lipstick! I picked the shade Creme Cup because I wanted an everyday color (for the price I definitely want to maximise my uses). If it's saying something to you, it is probably because I put it as one of my June 2014 Favorites.

Then, I did some damage at Sephora. Nothing drastic if you compare it to other beauty blogger hauls but it was enough for me. 

So, I'll start with the boring stuff. I first bought this pack of 10 hair ties because I love those kind of hair ties and I needed more of these (I swear!). I think it was 7$CA for that entire pack.

Then, I finally got around buying my first ever palette from Too Faced. I chose the Natural Eyes Palette but seriously it was a tough decision because they have so much different variations! But I am a neutrals kind of girl, so this palette is perfect for me. It also came with a little How-To Guide which is great if you're a beginner or if you want some inspiration.

And lastly, I got a mini size version of the Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray. I bought this product because I wanted my prom makeup to last longer. I think it was around 20$CA for this tiny bottle, which is why I won't be using it everyday. #tooexpensiveifyouaskme

Monthly Favorites | June 2014

heyy girls,

I just realised that June is over! Wow! I can't believe it. This month was a crazy month for me and to be honest, I'm glad it's over. If you want to know why this past month has been insane for me, I'll link my update post that I did a couple days ago (here).

That being said, I didn't discover revolutionary products but I've been loving some stuff that I thought would be nice to share with you :) I'll even add some random stuff that I've loving at the end because I think it can be helpful to some people. 

The first product that I've been loving this month is an old favorite of mine. Yes, you've guessed it: Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream in 13. It's truly the best cream eyeshadow that I've tried so far. The color is just gorgeous; it reminds me of Sin by Urban Decay with a bit more gold reflects. I did a review and a comparaison post on this product last summer I think.

Another old favorite of mine that I need to share because I'm still using it almost everyday and that's a first for me. I've been using the MAC Omega eyeshadow a lot this month (like everyday) to fill in my eyebrows. Love it. Can't get enough of it.

But don't worry I've also discovered new products like the MAC lipstick in Creme Cup. In the store, I hesitated between this one, Angel and Creme d'Nude. And now that I'm thinking about it, I think I'm going to purchase the Creme d'Nude too.

First Impressions | Soap & Glory Hand Food Hand Cream

heyy girls,

today I'm here with my first impressions on the Soap & Glory Hand Food Hand Cream. I bought this hand cream the other day when I went to the drugstore. I got it for 10$CA. The drugstore that I went is different though because it carries high-end brands like Benefit, Stila and Lancôme. But usually, you can buy this product at Sephora

How does it feel on the skin?
It feels good! No, but seriously it doesn't feel to heavy. Neither does it leave you with a greasy residue on your hand. It also dries very quickly which is awesome to me because I hate waiting for a cream to absorb into my skin (okay, maybe it's also because I always forget to wait and the cream goes on everything that I touch).

Updates | Where I've been? + Graduation pictures

heyy girls,

I'M BACK!! I know it has been a long time since I've posted something on here, but if you follow me on Twitter, Instagram or Hellocoton you know that I've been very busy with school during all the month of May and half of June.
I've officially finished my Secondary which if you compare it to the American system I've technically finished my Junior year. But here in Quebec, after elementry school we study 5 years at a school called Secondary and then we graduate. The following year, you study for 2 or 3 years in a school that is called Cegep and then you can go to University (or College as some of you might call it).

So basically, what I'm trying to say here is that this year was my last year of Secondary and let me tell you that it wasn't a walk in the park, especially at the end. But I'm happy that it's done. So right now (as I am writing) I'm in Summer Break...until the last week of August.

But let's rewind. My last day of exams was June 17th and the same night I had my Graduation night. And my Prom was on June 19th. But here are some pics of what I wore and what makeup look I had on my Graduation night...

Manicure Monday | Blue Ocean

Heyy girls,

Even though it isn't Monday anymore I decided to share with you the nailpolish that I've been wearing this week. Actually, I didn't think that I would be posting one Manicure Monday because I've just started a new job where I can't wear nailpolish (I know it's sad). Plus I have to keep my nails shorter than what I usually do. Let me tell you that I already miss my long nails. But I finally had the time to paint my nails on Sunday. And the color that I chose is... Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear nailpolish in Pacific Blue. A color that I recently added to my collection.

And you might be thinking now: "Not another blue nailpolish!" But this one is magic I promess! Okay, maybe not magic but it's close to in my opinion.

Manicure Monday | Fruits On My Nails

heyy girls,

this Manicure Monday is going to be very quick because I'm drowning into school work right now. You might think that I am being a bit dramatic, but I assure you that I am not. I am so stressed out this time around, especially when I look at my planning for the next three weeks... 
What I like to do when I'm stressed is catching up on my favorite Tv Shows while painting my nails. Right now, I am obsessed with Hart Of Dixie, Arrow and The Originals. So Saturday night, I was freaking out when I saw that I almost accomplished nothing school related that day. So I just decided to put nailpolish while watching an episode of a Tv Show that for some reason I can't remember which one it was, but that's not the point. Basically, I didn't only paint my nails that night, but I've also cut them. 

So, now you might think: "Wow, you're being so dramatic over the fact that you've cut your nails." Well, you're maybe right, but from someone who swears by only filling their nail (aka me), it is a big move. 

But anyway, all that drama moment was to warn you that my nails are shorter and that my skin around them is very dry because I'm stressed. And when I'm stressed, I'm picking my cuticles and all. Gross, I know!

Haul | Spring Inspiration

heyy girls,

last weekend I went to the drugstore with one of my friends and I bought some stuff. It isn't much, but I was very excited about what I bought that day. I got a bunch of magazines and some beauty products. I hope you'll enjoy reading this quick post even though it's not very long and detailed...

The first beauty item that I got is the Pacific Blue nailpolish from Sally Handsen. It is just a beautiful true ocean blue color. It was also very inexpensive and I bought it because I've heard that those Xtreme Wear nailpolishes are amazing. Of course, their shade selection isn't as great as Essie, but it's okay.

Next, I finally bought the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 15. I've already bought this product before, but in a darker shade that unfornately didn't match me most of the time (it was alright during the end of summer when I had a tan). I might do a review later if it ends up being my favorite concealer of all time ;)

Manicure Monday | Flip Flop Fantasy

heyy girls,

last week I wrote a Manicure Monday about easy nail arts that I think would be very cute for Spring. I really wanted to try doing an ombre nail effect, but I didn't have the material needed (like makeup sponges... I can't find mine). So, instead, I've decided to show you a color that I've been dying to wear during the last few weeks. Ladies & Gentlemen, let me introduce you to... China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy. **Unfortunately, my camera didn't pick up the color well**

My camera didn't pick up well the coral neon color that this nailpolish has. It looks almost like a pale orange, but in reality it's so bright and summery. I'll put pictures that I took with my Iphone for you to have an idea of what it looks like. Sorry for the picture quality.

Fashion Friday | Prom Lookbook

heyy girls,

prom season is coming very soon where I leave and I decided to do an entire post dedicated to it. I don't know about you but I LOVE looking at prom dresses or just more formal dresses on Pinterest. For this post, I partnered up with the brand Bonobos to show you what type of suit your boyfriend could wear with the prom dress that you chose. I hope you'll find that post helpful and inspirational! By the way, all the dresses that I am going to show you today are on my Pinterest, you click here to have direct access. So, yeah...let's get started!

Prom Look #1
This first look is very fresh looking while still being glamorous at the same time. As you can see, the dress has some metallic pieces on the top section and it has some cut-outs as well. The bottom section (we'll call it that way because I don't know the terms for that section) is very flowy and soft with its very light pink color.

As for the suit go, I recommend going with a light color one, like this suit from Bonobos. Again, it goes very well with our fresh and young looking look that we're looking for. Of course, not everyone is daring enough to wear a cream color suit but I really think that this kind of color is perfect with pale color dresses. Also, I don't think that a black suit would be the best for complimenting that kind of dress.

Prom Look #2
For this second look, I went with something a little more simple for the dress. This A-line type of dress looks good on anyone and is very easy to accessorise since there isn't much details except for the fabric design on the top part of the dress. The sweetheart neckline is also very flattering for most women.

Review | NYX Love In Rio Eyeshadow Trio

heyy girls,

today I am going to review one of the new NYX eyeshadow trios that they came out with recently. I got it in an Ipsy bag (I can't remember which one) from last month or maybe the month before last month. Seriously, I can't remember but that's not the point. The point is that I have been using this trio for a couple of weeks now and I am now ready to give you my honest opinion about the NYX Love In Rio Eyeshadow Trio in Segredos De Giselle (yes, that's the name of the trio that I got).

The packaging
At first, I had trouble opening the little palette. I don't know why but it didn't want to open. Of course, I broke a nail trying to open the palette (the usual, you know). But, I finally did it and I was very happy about the quality of the packaging. It is very sturdy and doesn't feel cheap at all. I was very impressed. It came with the usual sponge tips applicator that I never use, but you know, it's still nice to have it, just in case.
