Black and White Living Room Home Decor Ideas

Hey everyone! Sorry I haven't been posting on here lately. If you follow my Facebook page, you probably already know that I had a summer trimester for university and the finals are this week. I'm super busy studying and getting ready for my impending move to a new appartment. I'm really quite excited about the new place. I'm going to have a walk in closet *dream come true*.

Anyway, the other day while I was procrastinating I decided to do a little collage of ideas I have to decorate my future living room/home office. I'm going to go for a modern black and white theme, with lots of patterns and shapes.

Most of the stuff is either from Ikea or Walmart, but there is also stuff from Pier 1, Cafe Press and Target (which opens here in Quebec in the fall of 2013 - can't wait!). The idea for this theme is built around my black leather sofa (in the middle of the picture), which I find difficult to match into other color schemes. I thought If I went all black and white than it would sort of blend into the room. Anyway, let me know what you think!

That's it for today. I need to get back to studying, I'm already running short on time! Hope you enjoyed this, let me know if you would like to see before and after pictures of the apartment once I decorate it. :)

Talk to you all soon ♥

May 2013 Beauty Favorites

Hey everyone! With the month of May now over, it's time for my beauty favorites! Sorry about it being a little late, but I had an internship until yesterday which has kept me incredibly busy until today. Anyway, let do the favorites now :

Hard Candy Bronzer in Tiki - Gorgeous golden highlight shade. Been using it all month like crazy!

Maybelline Baby Lips in Melon Mania - It gives a cute barely there tint and smells like sweedish berries. OMG

Wet n Wild Concealer Stick - I usually hate these, but I've had a particularly hard to cover spot this month and this really saved me. It's really thick so it helps hide hard to cover blemishes.

Victoria Secret Pink Wild at Heart Body Mist - Love the smell of this, it's citrusy and fresh. Great scent for spring and summer.

Rimmel London Powder Blush in Bronze - Good for a natural sun kissed look. Love it!

Nivea Vanilla & Macademia Lip Butter - Love everything about this, the packaging, the texture and the smell! To me, it kind of smells like vanilla ice cream, yum!

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder - My skin has been changing since the beginning of spring. It has gotten a lot more oily than I'm used to. This powder helps me control shine and keep my foundation from moving around.

Cover Girl Clump Crusher Mascara - I think it's the third month in a row I'm including this. It's probably my favorite mascara of all time. It hasn't dried up on me yet.

Maybelline Great Lash Clear Mascara - Great brow gel!

Rimmel Eye Khol in Nude - So practical! I use it to rim my waterline (makes you look more awake), to reverse line my lips and to hide discoloration around my nose, it works great!

Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer in Ivory - very brightening and  not too thick, great for the under eye.

Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation - Love the dewy finish of this foundation. It also feels very nice on the skin. Great coverage too!

Close up of my favorite shadows of the month both by Darling Girl Cosmetics : Lucky and Basket Case
Darling Girl Cosmetics Loose Shadows in Lucky and Basket Case - Lucky is a lovely sheer mint green when applied over a pale base color. It gets even more intense when applied over a dark base. Basket case is a duo-chrome purple with a strong blue shift. I'm thinking of getting this one in full size eventually.

What are your favorite beauty products this month? Let me know in the comments :)
