March Favourites: The Violet Hour

I’ve never really had a favourite colour until now, but there’s a definite theme running through the veins of this post. All March I’ve been feeling very violet. For me, violet is the colour of luxury, rebellion, and alchemy, and when I think about it, all of those things seem pretty appealing. The first three of […]

Article: The Big Bucket Experience

This morning, I got back from the gym, double-shampooed my hair (!), conditioned, and began to apply my war paint. I had decided that today was the day that I would venture forth into the unknown.

Review: xoBeauty “The Romantic” False Lashes
