Saturday's Stuff I Like

This week I met fellow blogger Gaby from Gaby's Beauty Blog, as she is doing a road trip in Eastern Canada. This week she was in my area. I knew she was around and we exchanged numbers, but on the day I met her, it was all due to pure luck, as she was in the Tim Hortons I go for brunch with my family on Sundays. She stayed over and we visited the village and it was all good fun! If you want to see pics from her road trip, follow her on Instagram!

Someone else I saw this week was Eugene, the little old guy I like so much! I haven't seen him in a while, I think I haven't seen him at all during summer. Bless him, he even told me I was the most beautiful girl he ever saw!

One good news this week is that I have an interview on Monday for a position in both my area of expertise, Tourism and Communication. Now I don't want to jinx anything so I will only says that for now!

My dad just saved my life, I was doing some sanding on one of my curbside find from the Spring and my hair fell down and got stuck in the inside of the machine. The first thing I thought was to ask my mum to cut the chunk for me, seeing as my dad didn't do anything but when I asked him he pulled the hair out. What a story! Hahaha!

I might going to make some enemies by saying that but I'm kinda glad for Fall. We had a scorching hot summer and I didn't do much outside, as it was just unbearable. I'm going to try to finish a few of my project while the temperature is just perfect!

How is your week?

First Impressions: Lise Watier Alex Collection

So last week Lise Watier launched their Alex collection, in collaboration with YouTuber Alexfashionbeauty, Alexandra Larouche.

The collection has been on pre-sale for 2 days at the end of August, but as I was in Transit I couldn't order at that time. So I made a bee line for the collection on the day of the official launch.

The collection has three products set in an Alexfashionbeauty signature package: Quatuor Eyeshadow, Duo Blush & Glow and Rouge Fondant Suprême, all in the shade "Alex".

Quatuor Eyeshadows
Duo Blush & Glow
Rouge Fondant Supreme
This collection is online exclusive to Lise Watier's website.

I have swatched the products and then I featured them in a First Impressions video.You will find those swatches just after the embedded video.

Rouge Fondant Supreme
Duo Blush & Glow
Eyeshadow Quatuor
When you order all the collection you get your choice of either a iPhone 4 or 5 case. I like that it is made of this rubber plastic and not the hard one that snaps when you try to put it on or remove it. 

Gift with purchase: iPhone case
Have you ordered the LW Alex collection? Will you give it a go?

Quatuor Eyeshadow, $33
Duo Blush & Glow, $29
Rouge Fondant Suprême, $24

Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil Review

The Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil has been on my London wishlist for quite a while. The many mentions and reviews of Kate from Ghosparties sold it to me. It was really the appeal of its scar healing effect that got me, as I still have a few annoying scars from the last months.

I knew I could get it at Whole Foods and it was the first place I visited when I got off of the Tube after my plane ride. The tester they had at the Picadilly Circus one was smelling quite awful to be honest. Like fish oil. I was wondering if the product itself was smelling that or if it was just the tester that was just old (they do say on the bottle.)

I went to another location and this time the tester smelled fine so I got one bottle for myself. I also started to use it the same day, as I wanted to reduce the scars for a special occasion. I put it on my face at night, and the morning after, I did see a difference on the scars. This stuff is just fantastick!

Pai says for best results to apply in the evening 2-3 times a week. I also like to put it on during daytime for a boost. As the oil is a dry one, you can easily put it on, wait a few minutes for it to soak, and then proceed to the rest of your skincare routine and makeup as you would normally. Some say that its orangey colour prevents you from daytime wear, but I find that when the oil has sank in the skin, it doesn't show up.

Besides helping the scarification process, roship oil is supposed to be great for a few other skin concerns, such as wrinkles (can't really report on that), skin tone (I do agree), texture, elasticity and persistent blemishes.

Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil is certified organic by the Soil Association and also sports the Vegan and Leaping Bunny logos.

For me, it is a firm new favourite!

Have you tried anything by Pai yet?
