Joe Fresh Jewels

|

Va-va voom! For the LAST contest of SummerxSkin's 12 Days of Giveaways, I wanted to get a little glam up in here.

We all talk about Joe Fresh and it's budget-friendly fashionable clothing, the revamped beauty wardrobe and even some of the season's hottest shoes. One section that I completely overlooked until this season is Joe Fresh's JEWELRY collection, available at Shoppers Drug Mart. It's sparkly, mixed metal and exactly what you need to add a little more oomph to your look.

Smashbox Faves

|

I'm sad that SummerxSkin's 12 Days of Giveaways is coming to an end soon, but SO excited that I get to share amazing goodies with you. These two are more recent makeup favourites of mine that YOU could win!

Smashbox Cosmetics has been one of my go-to makeup brands for years; it started with the eyeshadow trios and the FLUSH blush that I still can't part with. Since then I discovered the brand's primers and lip products; they are seriously some of the best in the industry! The packaging is always minimalist and sleek, and they come up with unique matte tones that are hard to find anywhere else.

Electric Blue Makeup Look

|

Hello, my loves! Out of all the giveaways, this one is extra special because I created a whole makeup tutorial to inspire your holiday look. I'm also combining TWO giveaways (9 +10) for SummerxSkin's 12 Days of Giveaways.

This makeup look features the highly sought-after Gritty & Glow Palettes from The Estee Edit. Once you see the video and the range of colours, you will see why I look so excited in the clip above.

Vichy Masking Trio

|

We're getting close to the last few contests of SummerxSkin's 12 Days of Giveaways! This one is #8.

I didn't know much about VICHY until this fall when I was introduced to the brand's latest masking trio. Be honest, how often do you use a face (or hair) mask? It felt like a burden to me for a long time, one of those things I never made time for. However, these masks have truly changed the experience for me!

QUO Lipsticks and Contouring Set

|

Lucky number 7, here we go! I've been having so much fun with SummerxSkin's 12 Days of Giveaways. Make sure to click the banner on the side bar (or here) to check out everything that's been featured so far.

QUO, a brand exclusively sold at Shoppers Drug Mart, puts together special holiday kits for makeup lovers. They have quite a variety from lipstick sets, to nail polishes, contour palettes and more.

Elevate Your Skin with Olay Regenerist

|

Time for the SIXTH giveaway of SummerxSkin's 12 Days of Giveaways! Such a fun ride so far, have you been keeping up?

Olay has always been known for its impeccible skincare products. For me, it feels nostalgic whenever I come across anything from the brand because my grandmother was a HUGE fan. She especially loved the day and night creams because the scent never changed and the formula has been consistent since it first came to market. Recently, the brand has been unveiling the Regenerist collection which does not disappoint. Continue reading and enter to WIN!

Girl A Rama Makeup Look

|

It's the 5th segment of SummerxSkin's 12 Days of Giveaways and I'm SO happy this one is for makeup lovers!

Every year Benefit Cosmetics comes out with the cutest, cheeky holiday kits (including the advent calendar I mentioned previously). One of my favourites from this year is Girl-A-Rama, it includes a little bit of everything to help you achieve the perfect holiday look! 

Bioderma Sensibio Collection

|

Hello #4 of SummerxSkin's 12 Days of Giveaways! Playing a bit of catch up; be sure to keep checking back multiple times a day for MORE chances to win amazing goodies.

I'm happy to report that this year, Bioderma officially became one of my favourite skincare brands. It's always a tough decision, but I've been repurchasing some of these products over and over, and I know that I'll be going back for them again next year.

Philosophy's Iconic Amazing Grace Collection

|

It's DAY TWO of SummerxSkin's 12 Days of Giveaways! Be sure to come back each day over the next couple of weeks to see some of my top beauty, food & fashion picks and enter to WIN amazing contests we've lined up.

Philosophy is a brand I discovered in my late teens when I was first started to develop my love for makeup and skincare. At the time I couldn't afford it so I'd get samples from Sephora or ask for it for my birthday! Over the years I've had the opportunity to try a lot of their collections and somehow, I always go back to Amazing Grace. This 3-piece set is truly a dream because you get perfume, shampoo/shower gel AND body cream!

Sparkle & Shine with essie

|

Welcome to DAY ONE of SummerxSkin's 12 Days of Giveaways! This is the first time I'm trying something like this, where I will talk about products that I love each day and give you the chance to WIN them. Be sure to come back each day over the next couple of weeks to see some of my top picks and hopefully be able to score something for yourself. ;)

Lets kick things off with nail polish. It's basically a necessity! I always find my outfit or look incomplete without a bit of colour on my nails, even if it's not the best manicure. essie always has the most unusual, yet beautiful, shades of nail polishes that are hard to replicate by any other brand.

I've curated a range of 10 polishes that include best sellers from this year, and some others that I think every lady should have in her collection!
