October Favourites

Here are some of my October Favourites.

Hi guys! This is my first favourites video ♥ The book I'm reading is Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. I'm actually re-reading it while I wait for the new one to come out! If you guys want book recommendations please ask! I know everyone is about the fall scents but I just have the same favourite scents no matter what season it is! This candle is by Bath and Bodyworks. I got fairy lights! Woo so YouTuber lol. I love them though. That mirror is a life saver. My room is really dim so it really helps with applying makeup! That deer jewelry holder is from Michaels! So cute! And of course Halloween just passed so I have a lot of candy sitting around and Reese's have been the one I've been reaching for the most!

I hope you enjoyed the video!

3 EASY MAKEUP LOOKS

By using different lip colours.

It's super easy to portray a different vibe with the same eye makeup using different lip colours. In this video I show how a light, medium and dark coloured lips can change a look.

Hi guys!

I hope you enjoy!

I hate it when

I don't know what to wear to a wedding. It's difficult especially if it's some close to you. You know you'll take lots of pictures. There's nothing wrong with wearing the same dress twice but it's best to avoid wearing the same thing to consecutive events.

Here are 3 dresses in my closet that I felt were appropriate for different season weddings. I didn't do a winter one because I've never been to a winter wedding.

Hope you get inspired!


Love,

Carrie

My day in 1 minute

I always love watching these. I'm naturally a very curious person so I love room tours, follow me around, and other similar videos. So I thought I would do one too! It was just putting together random footage I captured on my iPhone. The iPhone really has a great camera.

Thanks for watching!

What's in My Bag | School Edition

Helloo. This was my quick video on what's in my school bag. I'm sorry it's so short but I was trying out editing styles.
I don't go to school anymore but these were definitely the things I brought with me.

Products:

LongChamp Tote in large
I love this bag! It's super roomy. I can fit everything I need plus my dog in here! (jk about the dog). The leather straps are really durable. They kind of dig into you though when your bag is really heavy . The shape also doesn't hold very well either. I would recommend a base shaper if saggy-ness bugs you.

Folders
I like to write on loose leaf papers instead of spiral notebooks because I like to be able to shuffle my sheets around. I find I'm extra messy when I write in notebooks.
The cute peas-in-a-pod folder is from 711 in Hong Kong!

iPad
I love writing notes on my iPad. I have a couple of great apps for it. You can record lecture and play it back at a specific line of notes!! So cool. Too bad I discovered this stuff at the end of my undergrad...

Pencil case + highlighters + pens
The obvious usual essentials for note taking. Fun fact: my pencil case is actually supposed to be a glasses case. The chapstick in there is just an extra in case I forget my usual one.

I don't use pencils, rulers or erasers usually but some classes need them so they're optional for me.

Calculator
I definitely like having one around. Even if my courses didn't require one. I liked to calculate what each little assignment is worth so I know if I really need to do it haha.

Moleskin Planner
I looove this planner. It's nice and small and cute. A planner is essential to staying organized! Even though I put things in my phone I feel that writing it down makes it really stick.

Phone + Charger + Headphones
Of course you need your phone. I like to bring a wall charger because I can charge it as many times as I need to. Plus there are always wall sockets to plug into at universities.
Headphones are for when I feel like being a loner, which is quite often.

Glasses
Since my eyes have gotten worse I started wearing them in class. Especially in classes where they use old school overhead projectors. The light is blinding. (I have astigmatism.)


Thanks for watching!

Trying really hard

So I've been getting really into planning videos. It's super fun. I get to be creative with how I edit the videos and the content. I will probably continue to do swatches for the make-up I do still buy. It's not much nowadays. I am definitely more into style and skincare now that I'm older.

Hopefully I can create good content that'll draw in viewers. Not that that is my end goal but it's nice to have your work appreciated right?

I already started shooting my "What's in my bag? - school edition" video. I'm planning on it to be out by Monday :).

Happy Year of the Sheep!

Hellooo is there anybody out there?

I want to wish everyone a good year of the Sheep. May this year bring all the riches and good fortune to you :).

Guess what I have? *Gasps* Reviews! Finally. School's done and work is steady now so I have more time to work on things like this :).

First thing I want to talk about is this fresh Rose Floral Toner. I love this thing so much. I was looking for a new toner since my old one ran out and I thought it was about time I changed things up. I don't always use a toner but I do when I want to feel extra fresh (pun not intended). I went to Sephora and asked a sales rep what she thought would be nice and moisturizing. I have dry skin in general with an oily nose. She recommended me this one. I like how it comes with a spray nozzle. I won't lose any product this way! Woot. It also smells amazing. Like roses. If you aren't into roses then maybe you won't like this. But it is very moisturizing. I dispensed some into a smaller spray bottle to take with me on the plane when I went traveling back in Dec/Jan and it was awesome. Airplanes always make me dry and this really helped!


This blush I have been using every single day since I got it. Haven't made a dent yet. It is soo pretty on the cheeks. Give you the right amount of glow. This is always what I use when I need to freshen up fast.



Excuse the crappy swatch pictures for now. It was night time and I have horrible indoor lighting. The color turned out correct though, albeit a bit pixel-y. I got this when I went to Seoul, Korea in December. One of the only makeup things I bought. It's quite moisturizing. I like the light color pay off it has. My favourite thing about it is the scent/taste. Smells like orange crush! I guess that's not the best thing to like about a lip gloss but hey it's cute looking and smells good.





The swatches are in the order of the glosses from left to right. Cherry Pie has been my go-to color for the holidays. The red is very nice and forgiving on all skin tones. I find a lot of reds bring out the yellow-ness of my skin but this one doesn't.

Eclaire (oops typo in the photo) is a nice light colored gloss. I really enjoy wearing this with a more smokey eye look.

Apply Strudel actually reminds me of the Etude gloss bar I showed earlier. The color is comparable. They're both on the orangey pink side. I would say the Etude gloss bar is more orange.



Last but not least. Heyclaire on YouTube introduced this to me and I looovee this. Very portable. I brought this to Hong Kong with me when I went for a wedding and it was all I needed for my face. The packaging is gorgeous as well. Highly recommend this!

Thanks for stopping by! I will be updating much more often, so please stay tuned!

Love,

Cari
