Bold, Beautiful and Brilliant Lips


, , ,

With the dull, dreary days of winter taking their sweet time to lead into spring, I want to share a few fabulous lip glosses, sticks etc that are sure to brighten any mood!

I absolutely love lip gloss, lipstick, lip stains and and jelly balms!

Loud & Lovely Cremesheen Lip Glass from Mac

Dior Lip Polish in a to dye for pink shade!

L'Oreal colour riche balm - I have it in Rose Elixir and it's fabulous!

This balm has a hint of colour and is so supple and moisturizing! Pick one up in your favourite shade today – you will not be disappointed!

Maybelline 14 hour lipstick - I have it in Ultimate blush and perpetual peony

I have two shades of this lipstick and love it! I’m actually contemplating buying another “Ultimate Blush” in case I misplace the one I have already!

Cake Beauty lip gloss in Ltd Edition pink icicle

This lip gloss tastes and smells fabulous! Just like all of the other Cake Beauty products. I also love that this company is Canadian and based out of my hometown of Toronto!

It is surprisingly moisturizing for a lipgloss with sparkles in it too! I’m straying away from sparkles because I’m getting past that stage in my life….. but I couldn’t resist this one because I knew it would smell and taste so deliciously!


Online Dating: Is cyberspace full of duds?

This past summer for the first time, I embarked (was pushed by a friend) into the online dating world. She set up a profile for me with a couple of pictures, some information about myself and what I was looking for and posted it.

The emails were almost instantaneous! I had the usual types of emails from the very disgusting, to those who didn’t both to read my profile to find out what I was attracted to, to the seemingly genuine.

Of course I made a couple of mistakes along the way, accepting dates that I didn’t want to go on, attempting to council these duds into normalcy – that never works – and accepting dates from guys who still live with their parents – Not acceptable!

I did learn a few things that I would suggest you figure out before you enter this bizarre world:

1. Write down exactly what your looking for – don’t be afraid to be strong willed about it 2. Set the criteria for emails that your willing to accept from specific users
3. Don’t respond to emails from people who clearly haven’t read your profile
4. Don’t be overly nice – tell them your not interested asap
5. If you have minimum height or size requirements (Not 5’3 and built like a rake) stick to them because your not going to be happy no matter how “great” their personality is

A glimpse into my world

Hello! And welcome to my blog! I haven’t decided if I will be revealing who I really am, or keeping it a secret for some time to come. I might very well never tell you, because here I plan to be completely honest, and at times hilarious with the things that happen in my life, the extent of my shopping, and of course – nights out in one of my little black┬ádresses!

Why a Haute Mess in a Little Black Dress?

Simple! My life is full of hilariously messy situations, both brought on by myself or others, and invariably, at any point during the week you can catch me wearing an LBD of some variation!

Feel free to comment and engage in conversation with me, ask me questions and request that I discuss anything related to shopping, relationships and anything else a reasonably normal twenty-something girl would like!
