How We Wore It | Clad in Plaid

I came to realize 2 things while doing this post:

1) I own zero Plaid Clothing. Why? I have no idea. I love Plaid! Time for a wardrobe update. Not mad about it.

2) I can pull off a Man's dress shirt like nobody's business. It was the only thing in the closet!! And after shooting the pics, I also then realized that it is more checkered than your traditional Plaid pattern. But it still works right?

Like Marshmallows and Hot Chocolate, Plaid and Fall just go together. The versatility of Plaid is unreal. Be sure to check out my friend's blogs to see what they did with it! (Link at Bottom of post). And yes, it is still Fall around these parts. And also back home in Alberta too I see! What is this crazy weather!!? I'm certainly not complaining, I hate the cold.

You guys, it's Finals week for Maikal, and he is writing his big nasty one today! Then it's American Thanksgiving holidays! Maikal gets a full week off of school for this, but with the weekends in between, we have 10 days off!....I guess they really celebrate this holiday down here in America. Im all for it! We have plans to travel to Ontario and Cincinnati. So happy to have some quality time with my family. 1 Semester almost done!

Lipsense Review | Is it worth it?

Happy Weekend!
I have something super awesome and exciting for you all today!
I will be giving you my experience with Lipsense!

If you haven't heard of it already, I'm about to blow your minds. Lipsense is a liquid lipstick that actually stays on your lips. IT DOES NOT BUDGE! I'm pretty sure legit Magic is one of the ingredients. Smudge proof, kiss proof, everything proof.
I've only recently gotten into wearing lipstick (like the past 2 years). I think lipstick can step up your makeup game by 1000% percent! My problem is that I could never find one that was all day lasting and didn't come off on everything. So much money wasted on lipstick! I am a mom of 2 little kids and a wife to a hottie, so naturally I am kissing and snuggling all day long. Which of course makes it basically impossible to wear even a little bit of regular lipstick. It would get everywhere! Or when I would eat, it would come off on whatever I was eating and I would just be getting lipstick flavour with every bite/drink. So my lipstick game has slowed down quite a bit simply due to the fact that it just wasn't worth the mess. UNTIL NOW! Apparently this stuff has been around for like 10 years, but only recently has it blown up and it's everywhere!


Here is a quick written tutorial of how it works:
With one stroke, put a thin layer of Lipsense on your lips. Do not let your lips touch!

Do this 3 times, waiting about 10 seconds in between each layer.
You will likely feel a tingling, which is normal.
Then finish it off with the Lip Gloss. DONE!
You're ready for the day! It's seriously that easy!

To get it off:
1) Put the 'Oops! Remover' all over your lips, wait like a minute, wipe off with a warm face pad.
2) Use the Neutrogena Bar with a warm cotton ball and remove.
It take some scrubbing, but it will come off lol.
My lips were SOOOOOO soft the next day.





I was sent this product by hairspraybybree on Instagram, she also has a Facebook account, so you guys can check her out and order some yourself! She knows what she's talking about and has a fantastic sense of what will look good on you. Please visit her on social media and see what she has to offer! You WILL NOT be disappointed!

And I was thinking, this is going to be a lot of writing for a review post, so I decided to do a Youtube video about it! Guys, it was so awkward at first. Being on the other side of the camera is weird! I hope you like it!
