Nevermore



What I'm wearing: shoes - Quad Comfort (bought at Mark's Work Warehouse!), jeans - Garage, Blazer - Forever 21

I get a kick out of wearing E.A. Poe's creepy face on my T-shirt. lol My boyfriend bought me this at Black Market Clothing in downtown Toronto. It's this basement with vintage clothes, T-shirts with different graphics, and some jewellery and drug paraphernalia. Strange place, but there's some good finds.

REVIEW: Lush Herbalism Cleanser

I've been using Herbalism Cleanser for about 4 months so far, so I feel like I can give an accurate review on it. 
What Lush cleansers are are solid preservative-free, soap-free face cleansers that remove excess oils and/or moisturize your skin. Lush has 7 different kinds of solid cleansers to suit a variety of skin types. 
I chose Herbalism because my skin is oily-combination where my forehead, and cheeks are oily and my nose area gets dry. So I wanted a cleanser that would prevent acne breakouts but without drying out my skin. I don't get a lot of zits, just one or two a month.


To use this kind of cleanser you take a little bit in you hand (like the amount below) and you add a few drops of water to it to mix it into a paste. Then apply it onto your face that way. Don't add water to the container or that will make having a solid cleanser pointless because bacteria will grow in it. 
Verdict: I really love this cleanser!! Within a few days I started noticing a difference in my skin, less zits, less redness and irritation (the other cleansers I was using were too harsh). And it really feels nice on the skin.. there no soap or foaming action but your skin still feels clean afterwards. I like that there is a gentle exfoliant texture to it but it's not too rough. It takes away excess oil but leave skin soft with the natural plant oils in it. Also, I've been really into using more natural cosmetic and skin care products and trying to stay away from all the nasty preservatives and chemicals in regular stuff. Just check out http://www.cosmeticsdatabase.com/  and you'll be amazed at the dangerous stuff in things we put on our skin. Anyways, I'll save the speech for another post haha... 
So, I would purchase Herbalism again.. or I might want to try more of Lush's cleansers!

Flowers on my fingers

I did my nails last night using the nail rhinestones I bought from ebay a while back. They were only $1.30! compare that to the $10 Sally Beauty Supply sells them for ;)









I love this dark purple colour from Nicole by OPI. The dark colours are nice but it will be nice to switch it up with the bright spring colours coming up too.
