Chocolate Banana ‘Pancakes’

Chocolate Banana ‘Pancakes’

Growing up, pancakes with a cold glass of milk was my go-to for breakfast (and even dinner sometimes!). However, shortly after being diagnosed as lactose-intolerant and gluten-sensitive, my days of pancakes & cow’s milk had to come to an end. With this alternative to traditional pancakes, […]

In Review: My Favourite Chanel Makeup

In Review: My Favourite Chanel Makeup

Summer and its heat has finally arrived and it’s that time of the year again when my makeup goes to minimal (no one likes a raccoon at the beach or a clown strawberry-picking, am I right?)

I’ll do a post on my favorite can’t-be-without drugstore brands soon on the blog, but for today, I wanted to share a post on my picks for a simplified go-to summer all year-round look using a higher-end makeup brand: Chanel.

Now, I’ve always thought of Chanel as just a sophisticated brand with great luxurious marketing, a hefty price tag, and it being a not-really-for-me-but-older-customer brand. However, since taking a leap of curiosity and trying out their products within the past year, I can honestly say that they really do give you a sophisticated look and help enhance your features – at any age.

While they are on the higher-priced side of the makeup scale, I have come to find that their quality is great and the longevity of the product is just as amazing.  Now, I’m no professional in the makeup-application department (#truth), so I rarely use much of it and I’m convinced that I don’t apply it as I should, but I think the richness of the colors gets me by and the end result is a truly clean, sophisticated look. #winning
