My 2015 Beauty Resolutions


2014 marked the year that I got seriously acquainted with the ~infinite~ possibilities beauty had to offer – and thus, 2014 was a year of many firsts.

As a girl whose only beauty allies consisted of concealer and pencil eyeliner (a dark Lindsay Lohan inspired time of my life), getting acquainted with new products, styles, and routines was nothing short of life-changing. Some experiments were slightly terrifying (have YOU ever applied a paper mache blackhead strip?) and others proved to be nothing short of exhilarating (a la channeling Emma Stone subtle smoky eye).

Big or small, these beauty trials made 2014 a year for learning, and set the stage for bigger and better looks. Since purchasing my first liquid liner, the gateway beauty product, I AM GAME (and apparently very aggressive) about trying new beauty rituals and setting practical goals for a healthier, gloooowing 2015. WHO’S WITH ME??? HUZZAH! read more…

Clean & Clear presents #FORAFORAVER: Best of GIRL GUIDE


But first, let’s ~throw it back~ a little bit.

This past summer, we took inspiration from our friends at Clean & Clear and showcased 30 girls who we admire (in flattering/non-creepy ways). For two months, we got into the creative minds of burgeoning talent across the board – from set designers to musicians to designers to artists – and now, we’re counting down some of our favourite Girl Guide features “OF ALL TIME” *Kanye voice*. After all, what better way to start wrapping up an amazingly chill/fancy/fresh/female year than with GIRLS GIRLS and more GIRLS?! read more…

12 Days of Holiday Beauty

If you’re looking for some gifts to get your loved ones this Holla-day: look no further. We know you’re balling on a budget, so we figured the most ideal way to get the best bang for your buck and your baes is a list of affordable BEAUTY must-haves. After all, haven’t you heard of that old saying? Loving someone helps make them beautiful – both inside…and out. (Lol?) Just jk. But loving someone is definitely synonymous with helping them feel #fresh and look #radiant with A+ stocking stuffers (s/o Clean & Clear®!), nice-smelling candles, and a warm blanket scarf to tie it all in together. read more…

Sweet Treats and Marvellous Feats with Liz Trinnear

We might not frequent carnivals, but we certainly feast on these sweet treats consistently/constantly. Popcorn? Candy apples? Cotton candy? Count us in. And when we’re not eating them, count Liz’s face in. Because you know what they say…you are what you eat. Just JK!!! But you are what you love. And if you love what you eat…then…well. You know what we mean, right? read more…

FYI: Winter Skin Survival


The winter months are coming, and this year they mean BIZNASS. Yes, the next few months will be a guaranteed igloo-fest, and it looks like it’s gonna be you and your skin vs. mother nature. Bring it ON winter, I’m ready for you ***wraps entire face in mink wrap-around and gets on a horse***

Read: Treat your skin like a deserted puppy this winter. Take care of it, pet it, and make sure to give it a LOT of moisture (that’s how people take care of animals, though…right?) read more…

Becoming FKA Liz 101

What happens when you pair a hair ~~~artist~~~ with 2ft long extensions (and a head of hair to attach said extensions to)?

Enter our longterm obsession with FKA Twigs, and our longterm obsession with Liz Trinnear. With a little lot of help from our friends, we’ve *transformed* one girl (Liz) that we love so much into another girl (FKA Twigs) that we love so much. The results? A fun lil video that’s glittery, braid-y, and generally inspiring across the board.

PS !!FKA Liz!!: tell Robert Pattinson that I love him dearly. read more…

FYI: **You Woke Up Like Dis**

I dread waking up on days that aren Saturday or Sunday. ESPECIALLY MONDAYS. I went to an all-girls High School for 4 years, and would roll out of bed without even running a brush through my hair. Now, it’s different. Now I’ve got to roll out of bed and wake up looking like Neutrogena commercial. (Minus the slow motion water splash, because that never works) read more…

The Emotional Stages of Applying a Blackhead Strip

Blackheads Header

Your face is utter perfection until you see it: that one, ever-present blackhead. Once you find that first black dot of doom, it’s like you’ve uncovered EVERY SINGLE DEATHLY HOLLOW, and a million more appear out of nowhere – as if all at once! They are an army invading the perfectly porcelain battlefield that is your face, and they must be stopped. You are a warrior, and you will defeat these blackheads [and probably go through each of these emotional stages in the process]. read more…
