Juno Awards Beauty Essentials

Getting ready for any party means looking fresh and fabulous.  From the moment you wake up to your contour and blush, all of the pieces are just as important.

juno party

As I will be attending the Casper Viewing Party for the Juno Awards, I am prepping my look. While still deciding on a dress ( which may just turn out to be an LBD ) it all starts with great hair.

Whether using a service like BeGlammed or a DIY style yourself, for the freshest hair I suggest Garnier Fructis

No matter whether pastel hues or bold shades, you will want a neutral yet defining lipstick. For the last year or so I have stood by my brilliant Tilbury shades.  Nothing says red carpet like Bond Girl, by Charlotte Tilbury.

Last finishing touch, you cannot go wrong with a hint ( or a lot ) of face and body glitter.  Having this brilliant pink shade from NYX it will be sure to hit all the right spots.

Throughout the week I will be testing out these fabulous products and posting reviews.

Best always,

Beauty Sleep with Sleep Envie

Getting a good night’s sleep is so important.  Especially with all the running around during the last few days before the holidays.  With Christmas being in just a few days, you want to look refreshed.  Though you’ve been up all night baking for Christmas Day you still want to feel and have a good nights sleep.

Not only is sleep important for looking and feeling refreshed it also keeps you alert throughout the day.  Studies have shown that drunk driving comes similar to drivers that have had little sleep in terms of their awareness on the road.

I have had my first mattress for who knows how long, and finally I upgraded.  And not just to any mattress but one that I am sure to use for a very long time. It is a Sleep Envie Mattress.

While the mattress is firm, it is just enough to provide support with the softness to make it ridiculously comfortable.

I have been using the Sleep Envie Mattress in Twin Size for the last week.  It is a combination mattress which mean no matter how you sleep it will work for you.   I have never been more excited to get into bed than with Sleep Envie. Usually I cannot fall asleep right away.  I tend to have to listen to a podcast because of the need for white noise.  Now with just a few minutes of lying down I am sleeping.  For someone who is not a morning person ( mostly a night owl ) I find myself barely even needing an alarm clock.

Not to mention sleeping well, with Sleep Envie you will wake up on a happier and healthier note.  Lack of sleep is also known to cause weight gain and mood swings.  Just simply getting enough sleep can help you not get sick as much and just plain love your life more.

Another great thing about Sleep Envie is you get a 100 night trial – so for more than 3 months you can see just how great a mattress it is. Sleep Envie also carries accessories and pillows.

If you are looking to get a new mattress, or pillow, without a doubt I recommend Sleep Envie.

Charlotte Tilbury: Quick and Easy Beauty Kit

Since being introduced to the Charlotte Tilbury collection since their opening at Holt Renfew not so long ago, I have been loving the collection.  There are amazing not only for the beauty of the makeup , but that it is just as good for your skin as well as it makes you look.  Having a skincare that is also a makeup is something incredible.

It also helps that many of my fashion icons love to immerse themselves within the brand.  This includes Kim Kardashian and Victoria Beckham.

More of a skincare that helps you look incredible, ultimately these products are my go to, whether heading out shopping for last minute Christmas Gifts or just a night out.

The team was so incredible in sending me this Quick and Easy makeup kit.   Though I already use the Magic Foundation everyday no matter what I use with it, this is a perfect set for days that are ever changing.  Or even for a last minute Holiday Party.

My Quick and Easy Kit included the following : 

Legendary Lashes: no smudges just love

til1

Beach Stick : Lip to Cheek Dewey Colour Pop : works well for both

til2

Colour Chamleon Amber Haze for Brown Eyes: my eyes are brown this looks phenomenal

Wonder Glow Instant Soft Focus Beauty Flash : perfect addition to either above or below my Magic Foundation

and Very Victoria Lipstick

I recently picked up the Kim K.W Lipstick as it works so well with my skin.  But I didn’t expect to love the Very Victoria as much as I did.  Having stayed away from any hint of dark lipstick I was nervous.  I now, especially with the cooler weather, use my Very Victoria, just as much if not more that Kim K.W.

If you have a lady looking for an incredibly easy to use makeup kit, she will love any of the pieces in this collection of goodies.

William Ashley Warehouse Sale 2016

For all of us who love a good shopping today was a lot of fun.  William Ashley invited me to check out the William Ashley Warehouse Sale before they open to the public.

Not only do they have some great home decor and dishes, but an amazing selection of bath accessories, toys, games and more.

Some of the fun finds I picked up include some Christmas Ornaments, Sunflower Lip Gloss, and a plaque with the phrase ” Wine Improves with Age.  The older I get the more I like it” which I find very cute and accurate.   You can never go wrong at the Sale, whether a Girls Day Out or some home supplies with your person, there is definitely something for everyone.

I was invited to the Sale from 10am to 2pm.  Little did I realize I would actually end up spending the entire time there !  And with a neat and easy to use map with a yellow road to follow, it makes the experience relaxing too.

I know for sure that I didn’t buy everything I fell for, so I will definitely be back again.  ashley3ashley2

Best always,

Beauty Review: Belif Cosmetics

Make up is only as good as the skincare you use underneath. Keeping your skin hydrated and moisturized is one of the most important things you can do for not just how you look but how you feel.

I was beyond thrilled for Belif Canada to send me a sweet package of goodies.  This included the Aqua Bomb and the Moisturizing Bomb.

Even on days where I just go for brunch with my sisters, I don’t reach for every inch of makeup.  Instead I put on some lipstick , grab my sunglasses but ensure that I have exfoliated, hydrated and moisturized my skin.

Would highly recommend this to anyone who always wants to keep their skin looking beautiful.
