My holy!?!

Like many other beauty addicts out there, I am constantly looking for my holy grail foundation. I've manage to try and spend a lot on my crazy search;  but I've come up with a list of my top 3. I'm not sure if they're my holy grail (does that even exist?) but they are my current faves!
Here's the video I posted on my channel talking all about 'em.  Hope you find it helpful :)

New Beauty Love ♥

Last week I picked up this amazing set of Macadamia Haircare products. I've been dying to try this brand for so long but I could never justify paying 30 plus dollars without know what it was all about. This travel set comes with four sample sizes (2 fl oz) & only cost $25 ( I couldn't pass it up!).  I've used all the products about 3 times already & I am hooked..seriously my hair has never looked so healthy & shiny!!!! I guess this means I'm gonna be buying the full sizes! 

Has anyone else tried this brand before? Thoughts?

Nicki Minaj for Halloween

Here is my second halloween tutorial! I am a huge Nicki fan & you best believe I can rap all her songs! (Uh Huhhh)... This tutorial was so much fun to film :) I loved using the bright eyeshadows since I'm not brave enough to wear them in my everyday life! 
 All you're gonna need for this is to borrow your grandma's crazy party wig & pair it with your fave leopard print suit!  
Hope you guys enjoy! <3

The Funk.

I wish I had more eventful things happening in my everyday life, unfortunately right now my days only consist of studying, studying & more studying! OH YES, its that wonderful time of year when midterms try to ruin your life!
Haha, but I do actually try to keep a balance in my life of work/play which makes all of this a lot easier.
Last night, I went to watch the movie Moneyball starring Brad Pitt  & I loved it! It had such a captivating storyline so if your into true stories/ sports movies I highly suggest it!

What do you guys do to stay out of the "Studying Funk"? 

My Fab Studying Attire! ;)

Wanna Take a break?  Watch my latest video!

Let's Feast!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadians!
Thanksgiving is probably one of my favourite times of the year. I love all the delicious food & spending time with the family! At my house we always celebrate it on Sunday just so that everyone has the next day to recover from the turkey overdose (when you you guys celebrate?) 

Also, I wanted to take more pictures of the turkey that my amazing mother made but I was too busy drooling over all the other food that I didn't realize that the turkey had been cut :(

Hope you all have an amazing Monday ♥ Diana.

Gushing over sandals

Today I went to the mall looking for some black wedges- Now this is a search that has been going on for WAYYY too long!.. Seriously it's impossible for me to find any I like (Note To Self: Stop being so damn picky).
The good news is I found some super adorable sandals from Steve Madden (both on sale) & I had to share them with you!

I am dying over these right now. Once I get my tan on they're gonna look so cute! Check them out here in different colours. 

These I couldn't pass up, they were on sale for $35 & are black (enough said).

Hope You All Have a Fab Weekend!

Review: Organix "Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil" Shampoo/Conditioner

Hey Everyone,
Today I'm gonna be reviewing the Organix Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo/Conditioner (what a mouthful!).   As you know I've recently dyed my hair so it really needs all the caring/nourishment it can get!
 Well about a month ago, I was browsing through the beauty aisle at Walmart and was drawn towards the Organix hairstyling products. I loved that all their products were Sulfate free, Paraben free & Safe for colour treated hair (score, score & SCORE!).

I picked out Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil bottles because of the hype that these types of oil get (lets be honest). Both bottles ran for $8.99. 

The shampoo/ conditioner claims to add shine to your hair while also making it soft and silky since the formulation contains Vitamin E and antioxidants. Sounds perfect doesn't it?...well not exactly.
I've used both of these products over 10 times and I hate them.

Let's start with the shampoo:  It smells amazing (fresh & herbal) , however it feel like no matter how much product I use my hair isn't getting any cleaner. Usually after I rinse my shampoo off, my hair feels lighter, yet after I use this shampoo my hair feels more dirty and "rougher".
The same goes for the conditioner.... No matter how much product I use, my hair is still tangled and almost feels like yarn after washing it. I've actually had to start mixing it in with my Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Deep Conditioner just to make my hair manageable when I style it.

The Only positive thing I can say it that it does make my hair LESS frizzy and adds some shine after I style it. However, that only last for 24 hours and then it starts to become dry and dull.

Heres my hair after its been blow-dried and styled:

I had such high hopes for these products but I think its safe to say I would not recommend it to anyone...
Any Suggestions on which Shampoo/Conditioners I should try next? 

Oh & If you wanna know how to get the curly waves in the pictures above check out my latest video!

Hair Drama & Reveal!

Hey Everyone, 
So if you follow me on twitter then you would of known I got my hair "did" last week. Now I haven't posted any pictures or said anything about it since then because honestly I hated it!! 
I told my hairstylist that I wanted something new for summer & I mentioned brown and blondes. Well she convinced me that blonde highlights on the top layers were the  way to go, so needless to say I did it! 
After she washed my hair, I saw the big reveal & I was in complete shock- I hated it & could not believe what I had done! 

I honestly could not even look at myself in the mirror this past weekend, I though the colour was completely off, that the highlights were way to dramatic & that it did not suit me at all (of course everyone around me it didn't look bad) 

Well it wasn't until yesterday that I started warming up to it- It was the first day I washed my hair since I got it done & found that the brown started to fade a little so it helped the highlights blend in a little more.

 I  think the shock of going from red hair to blondish really got to me..but now I think a little change for the summer ain't all that bad :P

What do you guys think of my new hair? & Have YOU Ever experienced a "Hair Crisis" ? 

-Hope You Enjoyed-

Down With Love

Let Me Share With You My....

Current LOVES 

1. I've been O-B-S-E-S-S-E-D with Revlon's "Super Lustrous" Lipstick! They are so amazing & I just can't get enough! The other day I was in Walmart for about 30 min switching all of them! The ones in the picture are Just Enough Buff, Temptress, Cha Cha Cherry & Peach Me (Left to Right) 

2. If you guys saw my latest video then you know I'm going to Miami in a week to visit family! I am super excited to be under the hot Florida sun & finally go to the beach! 

3. Here we go...guys, I have a serious addiction & I know you might be saying "We know Diana, you love Makeup & Clothes"- but no, I'm about to reveal another addiction & that is to....Chocolate & Candy! Seriously, I love, love, love it! I HAVE to have something sweet everyday otherwise I go crazy ( :s) 

4. The Slatkin & co. candles are my favourite (You can buy them at Bath & Body Works)!  I am especially loving the Vanilla & Coconut one!  The bigs ones are really pricey ($20) so I usually only pick them up when they have a 2 for $25 sale! A Must have for relaxation! 

5. My last current love are wide-brim, flimsy hats! They are so glam & elegant. But, I haven't been able to find ones that I absolutely love, I've searched everywhere! MUST. HAVE. NOW! The ones in the picture are from Windsor Store, which you can get here & here, if you're interested in picking one up!                (& no i'm not sponsored by them) 

Current HATES

1. I have a love/hate relationship with this product. Seche Vite is the best top coat  I've ever used. It dries really quick, makes my polish last forever & leaves a really nice gloss....but it smells awful & it starts to get really thick when its about half way done, making it almost impossible to use. I feel like i'm in an abusive relationship with this product!! I love to hate you & I hate to love you *sigh* 

2. Let me just say that the weather in Toronto has been awful for the last couple of days! Thank goodness- Hallelujah! That the sun came out today because its been gloomy & rainy since forever- My eyes were aching when I saw the sun ! I need my summer weather back, thanks! 

3. Okay, so I've been going through a mascara crisis over the last few months. I like to think of my eyelashes as "special" because no matter what I do, I can't get them to look voluminous & full! If you guys have any suggestions or have a holy grail mascara that I need to try please tell me! I need YOUR HELP! 

4. My last hate these hideous shoes that decided to come back in style this season- CLOGS! I just think they are awful- they make you look like you've gain weight & make your legs look shorter. I mean I'm all for personal style & following the latest trends but I have yet to see someone who rocks these shoes in a way that makes me say "Hey! I NEED those!".

-I Would Love to Know what YOUR Current Love & Hates are! Let it All out! :)- 
-Hope You Enjoyed- 

♥ Diana.

Date Night ♥

Here's my date night outfit from last night- I went for something casual but also a little sexy. I think a perfect way to dress up a casual outfit is by adding some heels or a cute hand bag. You guys won't even believe how much I love these nude heels! 
They make your legs look longer & the best part, they were only $39.99! (*faint*) 

As you can see I'm not that big on jewellery (Probably because I'm too lazy to put anything on :p) - but I always have to wear a watch and a ring on each finger! 

Coat- H&M / Top- F21 / Jeans- American Eagle / Heels- Aldo / Watch- Michael Kors / Purse- LV Speedy 35 

Have a Fabulous & Lazy Sunday! (I know I will!) 

                                                                        ♥ Diana.

Life's A Beach!

Yesterday, Josh & I headed to the Beaches- which is a gorgeous neighbourhood in Downtown Toronto surrounded by great restaurants and cute little shops! 
How Awesome is this Owl?
We went to one of our favourite restaurants called the Green Eggplant, which btw has the biggest, most delicious drinks ever! (I highly recommend the mango colada or the raspberry..yum)

I've decided that since I can't make outfit of the day videos regularly, I'm going to start posting pictures of my outfit here! I've officially hired Josh as my photographer :P

Here's what I wore to stroll down The Beaches: 

Top- F21  Jacket- F21    Leggins- Aritzia   Boots-Aldo  Satchel- Aldo

I've Also Posted a "What's In My Beach Bag?" Video on my channel.  
I'm going to Miami in 2 wks & I'm already thinking about tanning near the palm trees & soaking up that Florida sun! 

Hope you all have an amazing weekend! 

Thanks For All The ♥ xox Diana.
