MAC Lipstick Collection


Its no surprise to most that I am obsessed with lipstick, or as I like to call myself, a lipstick junkie. I have numerous lipsticks, but my MAC lipstick collection is my biggest. MAC lipsticks out of all the lipsticks I've tried are my favourite. There are numerous different type of finishes...matte, sheer, amplified etc. Matte finish is my favourite, which is actually not the biggest fan favourite for most. The matte lipsticks are how they sound, super matte, extremely bold, tough to put on and keep up with, but boy you can't beat the colour with a matte lipstick. My second favourite would be the amplified. This finish is glossier, easier to wear, but still has that bold colour that I love.



From left to right : Diva, Riri Woo, Chatterbox, Dangerous, Heroine, Lusturing, Girl About Town, All Fired Up, Candy Yum-Yum...plus I have Russian Red which I forgot at my best friends house.

Treats and Treasures turns 4 !!!



Treats and Treasures turns 4 years old today!! I started this blog when I was 18, feeling pretty lost, and not entirely sure what to do with my life. I decided to take the thing I loved most and do something with it. I started Treats and Treasures as a hobbie to express everything I was passionate about; fashion and beauty. 4 years ago today I wrote my first post which was actually a beauty post. It wasn't until a few months in, that my amazing mother volunteered to be my photographer so I could transform Treats and Treasures into a fashion blog. I started this as an escape and to have something to call my own. I truly had no idea I would be here today. I wouldn't be here unless it was for all of you, supporting me and joining me on my daily shenanigans. You have no idea how much I appreciate you all, and you have all kept me going these past 4 years. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!














 Thank you all again for the past 4 years. 
Thank you so much for supporting me and joining me each day :)

Winter at the Cottage








Here is my look for today!

My boyfriend was away for work in LA for the past week. When he got home Friday night, we thought it would be fun to head up to his cottage for a relaxing weekend away. I will jump at any chance to head up north, so away we went. 
Here is my typical snowy cottage outfit! Shawn and I ended this shoot with a snow fight, which was quite hilarious...its the perfect packing snow!!!

Valentine's Day is coming...



It's no surprise to most that I am a holiday freak. Anytime there is something themed in anyway, I get giddy and crazy. So now with the holidays being over, I need something else to look forward to. Valentine's Day is February 14th and you bet I'm getting myself prepped. Even if I was single, I sure as hell would be decked out in pink and red, and snacking on everything heart shaped.
Yesterday, while browsing the grocery store the famously delicious Pillsbury cookies were out with Valentine's Day cookies. These are my favourite and I always buy the themed cookies, for every holiday. I picked myself up some fresh flowers as well and went home and devoured the entire plate...I'm being dead serious. However, my cookies ended up falling in the middle, so the trio of hearts look like a big ol' mess.
