MAY FAVOURITES – 2017 💎

So there has been a lot of ups and downs in the month of May (i’m also sorry to be posting this a little late also) but nonetheless these are my monthly favourites for the month of MAY 2017 – sadly some things happen to me that I don’t feel comfortable expressing just yet. 

I am, of course, going to include some products or items that were less then amazing in my eyes. Just because they didn’t work for my or my skin does not mean that they won’t work for you! Seize fire! 

So my first favourite is obviously my man who I couldn’t imagine my life without, he is outspoken, bold and extremely handsome. We have so much in common it’s unreal and we fit together like a puzzle piece from day one. I have so much love and respect for him and I can’t imagine anyone else really for me – this could very well be it and if so, I would gladly be with him until the end. Exciting, thrilling, exhilarating, astonishing, stimulating, elating, gripping, energizing, breathtaking, overwhelming, enchanting, riveting, enthralling, invigorating, overpowering and uplifting – is words that I would use to describe you, and perfection

Next ➡️ would have to be Tarte SHAPE TAPE I know that this concealer is a little expensive but it is worth every penny! I use shades FAIR and FAIR NEUTRAL – it has amazing ingredients for the skin such as 

• SHEA BUTTER 

• SUNFLOWER 

• PEONY 

• LICORICE ROOT 

• VITAMIN E

Formulated without : parabens • mineral oil • phthalates • triclosan • sodium lauryl sulfate • gluten and is dermatologist tested. Cruelty free but the company that owns Tarte is not cruelty free – sadly. Do you think that’s right? For KOSE corporate to own a brand like Tarte

DID YOU KNOW ➡️ one shape tape is sold every 26 seconds? #shapetapenation

Next ➡️ JUSTE UN CLOU BRACELET by Cartier which was the first nice thing that I bought myself when I made 95k from advertising and partnership – I know I’ll be judged for this but it meant something special for me. 18K white gold, set with 32 brilliant-cut diamonds. 

A nail becomes jewelry. Designed in 1970s New York, the first Juste un Clou bracelet reflected a wild, freewheeling era. Bold, modern, and innovative, Juste un Clou is a creative twist on a familiar object. This jewelry collection transcends the everyday, making the ordinary exquisite, for him and for her

Next ➡️ Tarte Skin Care tight & bright clay multi-mask – It’s amazing for you skin and when you take it off it’s like brand new skin comes threw. It’s beautiful and just launched so I’m not sure if it’s available in all countries just yet but it will be very soon. 

Purple detoxifying & purifying exfoliating mask: perfect for the oily T-zone, this shine control mask helps tighten pores & detox your skin from the day’s pollutants. Amazonian clay works as a natural purifier to treat blemishes & blackheads, as gentle micro-exfoliants polish away dead skin cells to treat flakes & uneven skin tone without over drying.

Next ➡️ NETFLIX ORIGINAL – SENSE8 – god this show is so amazing and so so relatable it will have you on the edge of your seat! If you haven’t heard or or just had a chance to sit down and watch some of sense8 I truly recommend it, it’s got such a cool story line and such and out of the box approach on life. It also in a creative way focuses on a lot of world issues and how we deal with them. 

It’s just so smart and the cast is so amazing. You will not be sorry to take the time to watch it. You’re welcome!

Next ➡️ HOOKED a film by Max Emerson 

Stepping in as producers rep for this film has been fun and I’ve enjoy getting to know Max as more then just a “pretty face” we share a lot of the same views so I was happy to throw some money at the film to help it out and see it grow. Hooked is a strong bold storyline that might not hit to far from home for a lot of people. 50% of profits will be donated to several causes to help LGBT youth which is awesome. Remember be the change you want to see in the world. 

Final is Smile Sciences™ which is an at home teeth whiten set! I’m not going to say to to much because it is a sponsored post coming up but it’s absolutely amazing being 100% cruelty-free and vegan, not only is Smile Sciences™ gentle on teeth, it is gentle to the environment, kosher, FDA registered and made in the USA, After years of struggling with porcelain staining and tooth sensitivity from in-office and over-the-counter teeth whitening products and procedures, Smile Sciences™ founders, Deanna Gardner and Andra Moore, were determined to create a formula that would offer powerful prescription-grade results, with no sensitivity, all while professionally whitening teeth and removing stains from caps, crowns, and porcelain veneers.

It is a wonderful product and you see massive results after just one use – I love the little card they give you showing you just how yellow your teeth actually are, coffee, wine, smokers out there!! No hate at all. Give this a try – i might be able to save you a lot of money from the kit. Let me hear back from the company!

NEW LAUNCH ➡️ FRAGRANCE ➡️ YSL La Nuit De L’Homme – Eau Électrique 

So as long as I can remember or since moving to Toronto really I’ve been wearing during the day YSL L’HOMME EAU DE TOILETTE and at night YSL LA NUIT DE L’HOMME EAU DE TOILETTE – they are transition smells meaning they work together – as you change from your work clothes or whatever you can still smell some of the YSL L’HOMME so when you’re ready to go out for dinner, a date or fun night with your friends you spray on YSL LA NUIT DE L’HOMME and it works in together with older notes while giving you the sexy smell you’d want. 

These two (2) fragrances which go from day to night are amazing and I do not think I know one man who wouldn’t like the YSL HOMME line. Here is just a little information about the two of the fragrances and a little more into the notes of them. 

YSL L’HOMME EAU DE TOILETTE ➡️ a perfect balance between unrefined and precious, ultra-masculine and elegance, off-the-shelf and luxury. In a sparkling opening, Bergamot and a zest of Cedar wood brings luminosity to the fragrance, sustained with Chinese Ginger. The middle floral and spicy notes contrast with this first note of freshness: the sophisticated and modern masculinity of Violet leaves and Basil flowers, the bite and resonance of White Pepper. Base notes of Sandalwood, Virginia Cedar wood and Haitian Vetiver highlight this charismatic and magnetic fragrance.

YSL LA NUIT DE L’HOMME EAU DE TOILETTE ➡️ a story of seduction, intensity and bold sensuality. A darkly handsome man whose irresistible charm and seduction sweep away everything in their path. A fresh oriental fragrance, made of tensions and olfactory clashes. A structure of contrasting forces. A signature rich in differences and dualities. A seduction that lies half-way between restraint and abandon. A fresh Oriental fragrance that rocks the senses: the freshness of Cardamom and the sophistication of Cedar meet the intense sensuality of Coumarin.

Be at the utmost of seduction with this new electrifying eau de toilette for men. Fresh, intense and sensual, this fragrance will be your best weapon throughout the night.

YSL LA NUIT DE L’HOMME EAU ÉLECTRIQUE ➡️ an uninhibited and intoxicating fragrance. An oriental fougère that forms the bridge between freshness  and sensuality. It opens with a burst of ripe apple accord. Curving into the warm heartbeat of geranium; the senses are heightened. Slowly evolving, revealing itself, sensual – aphrodisiacvanilla rises upward, striking through like an electrical current. A play of contrasts: the first spritz invigorates the senses, while the trail leaves a statement of corporeal sensuality. An olfactive electric shock as intense as the deep blue of its juice.

It comes it sixty (60ML) or one hundred (100ML) which is pretty good for a launch most times a fragrance launches you won’t get anything but one hundred (100ML). 

LA NUIT DE L’HOMME EAU ÉLECTRIQUE  is described as a “wild” fragrance of a “seducer” who “makes the night his territory” and “nobody can resist his charm, at the edge of elegance and freedom.” The fragrance is conceived as a tension between the freshness of a modern fougere composition and a sensual trace of vanilla. 

SIDE NOTE ➡️ three (3) noses worked on the composition:

• Juliette Karagueuzoglou, 

• Dominique Ropion  

• Anne Flipo

Citrus notes of bergamot and mandarin combined with green apple form a fresh start. The classic fougere accord made of lavender, geranium and tonka bean, is modernized by the freshness of the opening, as well as orange blossom absolute and aromatic sage in the heart. Woody notes of cedar, cashmere, vetiver and patchouli, and a dose of quality vanilla end at the base.

Which makes it a very sexy frangrance and a good add to the L’HOMME line by YSL – I really loved opening it up – I loved the packaging of the bottles for all of L’HOMME collection.

🔥 QUICKY 🔥 BOY GLAM 

Hey guys. 

So this is a video that I just filmed and I’ll post early next week it’s in part of something with L’Oréal but I just wanted to quickly show you how I apply makeup to a man a show you how I apply makeup to myself always on the daily. Theres a massive difference betweeen makeup and not makeup, who you will see is my friend who was actually sick at the time so I begged because he looked like well, crap. 

It doesn’t look like I’d use a lot for this but it’s a fair share of makeup from, TARTE. NARS. GIVENCHY. MARC JACOBS BEAUTY. MUFE. 

No editing. No lighting. In fact I cover darkness and blemishes in LOW LIGHT for men because I can see them better. I know I’ve gotten into to fights with artists for years telling me to turn on the light. 

Well, the lights are always on. 


Left. Makeup.                          Right. The flu.
