My Favourite Mascaras + When to Use Them

One of the many things I love about blogging is trying all the new products! In addition to the latest and greatest in skincare that I frequently share with you, I get to put new beauty products to the test too! This blog post is short and sweet, but a long time in the making. It was around the time I moved to Toronto that I decided I wanted to find the best mascaras on the market. Since then, I’ve jumped at every sample or demo opportunity and finally, I think I’ve come up with my favourites! At least for now…. new things are always popping up.

Three Scents For Those With A Perfume Sensitivity

I love to collect perfume bottles. I find them so pretty! Having said that, there are only three scents that I currently wear out of all the bottles that I own because I am super sensitive to perfumes.

The Best Presents to Give and Get | 2017 Holiday Gift Guide

It’s December 1st! I’m sitting here at 8 am having just opened my two advent calendars; one of which is a NYX lipstick calendar, so now I have bright pink lips and I have yet to drink my morning coffee. Anyways, now that December is here (in true last minute Elise fashion), I wanted to share my holiday gift guide with you. I don’t know about you, but I find myself bombarded with “guides” at this time of year, so I wanted to do something a little different. Instead of scouring the internet for things that look cool and compiling them into a gigantic post based upon who you should give it to, I decided to keep it simple and personal. For this post, I went through everything that I had received this year and set aside the things that I would want to receive again. I also reached out to some of my favourite brands for holiday specific products they have available during the season. There is something for everyone in this post (men included). Each item is something that I have used and really, truly loved. There are 14 things here, each one amazing and I promise that this little guide is really all you need. Happy shopping my lovelies!
