Where has the summer gone? It feels like I've just finished my last exams of the school year and now I'm back to textbooks, chalkboards and a bunch of homework. I feel like every summer I plan to do something epic but mostly end up getting lazy and sleeping all day when I'm not watching netflix. This summer was mostly occupied by my summer job as a day camp counselor and it was honestly so much fun (the few headaches due to the noise were pretty much the worst of it) i still did a few things and i thought i'd share some of the pictures :

Well... time to bring out the pumpkins, tea and candles. What did you guys do this summer?
I am absolutely in love with this lipstick. Let's start off with the fact that its super long lasting. I can actually still see it on my wrist from when I did swatches. Like many other matte lip products it can be a bit drying, especially the dark red, but its nothing a little lip balm can't fix. Also, it is so pigmented, there is no need for more than 2 coats. It comes in loads of different shades and do not even get me started on how good these smell.
The dark red one is shade 107. Sadly they don't have names, only numbers. It is quite hard to wear since it's a bit out of my comfort zone but I still absolutely love it and if you're in the market for a new red I highly suggest this one.
The next one is a coral in shade 32 and I think it would be amazing for summer. A little tip, if you want to go for a more natural look put some lip balm under it, then apply a little bit of the lipstick and then finish it off with another layer of lip balm. Personally i'm not a very big fan of lip glosses that's why I usually finish it off with lip balm, they are just too sticky for my liking.
Lastly, the pink one is shade 101 and it is a classic pink. You really can't go wrong with it and I feel like this colour would look nice on almost anyone.
Let me know of your experience with this product if you have ever tried it or feel free to recommend a lip gloss since I really do wish I could at least find one that I like.
A while ago I got nominated for this award by the amazing Little Robin from http://littleteensblog.blogspot.com.au/. I want to thank you one more for nominating me.
Now onto the actual part; answering the questions.
What is your favourite memory?
My favorite memory is probably going to summer camp when I was little. I loved being outside in the forest and the arts and crafts were amazing.
What is the weirdest thing you have ever done?
I've done a lot of weird things so its really hard to pinpoint one...
What is your favourite Disney movie/character and why?
When i was little my favorite movie was snow white. I cried every time she ate the apple and whenever someone asked me what my name was i would say snow white. When i got a little older i fell in love with the little mermaid and forced my sister to watch it with me at least 20 times and now my favorite would probably be Beauty and the Beast. You can never be too old for Disney.
Dresses/skirts or pants/shorts? Why?
Definitely skirts and dresses they are just more comfortable, however, I am not the type of person to go out when its negative 20 degrees in a skirt and tanktop.
Die of heat or cold?
I would rather die of cold. I feel like if you dyed to heat you would feel yourself burning but if you dyed of cold you would kindoff go numb.
Chocolate or lollies?
Lollies all the way. As much as i love chocolate there are more options with lollies and they are just yummier.
What is your favourite artist/song?
At the moment i am loving Panic! at the disco and pretty much any song by them is good.
Cats or dogs?
I am a huge animal person so its really hard for me to decide but because i have a dog right now i'm just going to go with dog.
Have you ever been to a funeral?
Nope. Unless you count the funeral I gave my hamster when I was ten.
Are you more of a morning or night time person?
Night. I stay up till like 2 in the morning and getting me to wake up sucks.
I'm also not sure if i'm the only one but i press the snooze button in my sleep and then don't remember doing it.
Favourite makeup item?
Lipstick. It adds the perfect pop of colour.
Now here are the people i nominate :
Pear Phongsawad- http://www.thevanitypear.com/
Velveteen Rabbit- http://bfgfdoesblogging.blogspot.ca/ BeautyBlogger- http://xobeautybloggerox.blogspot.co.uk/ Luvleen- http://extantmind.blogspot.ca/ Senia- http://fabeautysenia.blogspot.jp/ And the questions... What is your favourite TV show? If you could only wear one outfit for the rest of your life what would it be? Have you ever stayed at a hotel? If you did, did you steal the little soaps? Sweet or savoury? What is your hobby? What did you want to be growing up? Do you sing at the top of your lungs when no one is home? Do you sleep with socks or no socks? Tea or coffee? Have you ever made a fort with blankets and pillows when you were younger?
I have never been the type of person who goes to the gym, so staying fit can be a challenge, but one thing most people don't really think about is that running on a treadmill and doing squats aren't the only ways to be healthy. Even something as simple as taking a walk can make a difference.
Personally I absolutely love walking, especially since I have a little furry monster ( my dog) to keep me entertained. Also, I noticed that I see some of the most beautiful things while on my walks that I would have missed out on if I was inside sleeping or watching netflix. So try new things see new places and most importantly eat some chocolate cake to reward yourself for being healthy ( just kidding, i always look for excuses to eat chocolate cake)
For the past while when visiting sephora and shoppers I have seen this nail polish and have been attracted to it. Let start off withe the packaging. It is so cute! On the lid there is a bird in the colours of the nail polish and white feathers in the background. Speaking of feathers how creative is that. That's what I love about nails inc they have a bunch of creative nail polishes like sprinkles and leather effects.
There were a few flaws with the nail polish but if done right they could be so nice. One thing about them is that they are really messy. Since these are just really long peices of glitter made to look like feathers they stick out at the edges a bit. It's an easy fix but it takes a bit of patience. Also I recommend that you do a base colour instead of just layering it up on your nails because like any other glitter polish some places will be more sparse than others. In the picture above I layered it on top of Essie mint candy apple.
They have four other colous that I am aware of and there lasting time is average for me they lasted about 3 days before starting to chip. Overall I would give this nail polish a 4/5 because I still thing they look really cool especially from farther away.
What was the most creative nail polish you've seen?
I love this blush so much. It's a little more out there and bright than I usually go for, but it was such a gorgeous coral colour I just couldn't resist. I feel like it would be amazing to wear during summer and it lasts a super long time. It applies very evenly, can blended easily in for more of a natural look, and according to tartes description it is infused with natural clay from the banks of the amazon river and is beneficial for all skin types. While it did cost 30 canadian dollars which may be expensive for some people or really cheap for others blushes typically last a long time and if you get the right shade it could become something you get a lot of use out of and if bright coral isn't your shade then have no fear because they have a bunch of others ranging from nude to bright pink.
If you have tried this blush let me know what you think of it and what your favorite shade is, if not what is your favourite blush? :)
So first off all, for those of you who have no clue what it is the versatile blogger award is, it a way for readers to get to know the blogger a bit more and the other way around too.

So without delaying my fact even further:
1. I was born in Ukraine and moved to Winnipeg when i was five, then after a year i moved to Toronto which is where i live now.

3. I am in love with Supernatural. I know i'm a little late with this since the series started so long ago but for someone who loves scary and supernatural thing its a great tv show series.
