Yes, I know. It’s February. But since I ended 2013 and started 2014 with the flu, followed by a back injury courtesy of this crazy snow and ice-filled Canadian winter…I decided that I needed a restart. I’m also approaching a pretty huge milestone this birthday and it seems, I’m not that fine about it.

Makeup Basics at Belle & Cat Nail & Wax Studio – June 18th, 2011

The ladies brought their own makeup kits so I could see what they were using and I was pleasantly surprised to see some great products from Bobbie Brown, Shu Uemura, MAC, Urban Decay, The Body Shop, Benefit and more! They didn’t even need to use the goodies from my makeup set up, and just played with some Nars and Laura Mercier products and tools MUST-HAVES that I had suggested they add to their makeup bags.… Click here to read more
