What we've been up to!

So sorry that there has not been any posts lately! We've been extremely busy with midterms, because of course school is our top priority. So here's what we've been doing!
One day while eating lunch we noticed this person's very cool shoes, which we could not resist documenting!

One day the Illamasqua in The Hudson's Bay on Queen St. was having a beauty class so we decided to attend.
The intended look on the model was glamour. It was to promote their newest collection, Glamore, and also in time for the Oscars!

Of course we can not resist trying on the makeup. Diana is wearing the lipstick Pristine and and Intense Lipgloss in Stranger.

Mercedes sans makeup except for Pristine (lipstick), as well as Stranger (lipgloss).

Shoe Obsession

Ever since I was young, I've always loved shoes and I used to be a little bit shoe obsessed. Seriously, what 13 year old needs over 40 pairs of shoes? I was good for a little while, but it seems like it's coming back! I'm currently in love with all white shoes. I recently picked up two pairs that I can't wait to style! 

Unfortunately, the Shelly London box was pretty beat up.

Throwin' it back with the classic Nike Air Force One's. I'm in love with all black outfits and bright white sneakers. Can't wait for the snow to melt to start wearing these! I was lucky enough to stop by kids footlocker the day after they got them in. (I have baby feet so the mens ones would not have been a good scene unless I was trying out for the circus)

I've had my eye on caged sandals like these for some time now. They're Shelly London and I picked these up at Little Burgundy. With a little bit of a platform and vintage feel, I can't wait to sport them and a tan in couple of weeks! I'll be going on a cruise so be sure to check for vacation tips and outfit posts throughout the week of March 9-15th.

DIY Sugar Scrub

I often get told that my hands are very soft. So I decided that I'd show what I do. Of course moisturizing your skin is very important, but I have somewhat dry skin, especially in these winter months. I was first inspired to start making this scrub after a few years ago when I was at a seafood restaurant in the states and in the washroom they had a scrub that you could use. I was shocked to see how soft my hands were. I then found that the restaurant was selling this scrub, but for an extremely expensive price, so I decided that I would just make it. 

Sugar scrubs are both very good at exfoliating and moisturizing your skin. Also as a student its a great way to save because you most likely have the ingredients at home.
So here's what I do:

The ingredients needed are simply sugar and coconut oil. 

The sugar can be substituted with brown sugar or salt. 
To me there is no difference between using brown sugar and white refined sugar because they are both made up of the same compounds. All you need is something grainy that will exfoliate the skin. 
The coconut oil can be substituted with olive oil or any other type of oil, its all up to your preference. Essential oils can also be added.

Tools needed are a measuring spoon and a plate or something to mix it in, and also to store it.

So first measure out two parts sugar, or your exfoliant.
Then one part coconut oil.

Then mix them together until you create a paste.

Then you're all done!

To use the scrub simply take it and gently scrub the part of your skin or body that you want scrubbed. Afterwards, rinse of the scrub and pat dry. You should be feeling silky soft now!

(I only made about one days worth)
