Beautiful Beauty Bloggers: Falling For these Autumn Lip Colours – Guest Post

6Today is the last day of Pearls and Polkadots’ “Beautiful Beauty Bloggers” series and although I’m sad to end this wonderful series, I am so happy to have Holly from Holly’s Housewife Life guest posting today! Her blog is so cute and fun to read and I always enjoy learning some new beauty tips (not to mention the pictures of her cutie pie!) Happy Reading!

Hi All!!  I’m Holly from  Holly’s Housewife Life and I’m here to talk LIPSTICK. Lipstick is a hot passion of mine so I thought I would share a few fall favorites with you all today.


When the warmer weather dies down and cool breezes start taking over I take that as my cue to amp up the lip game from light wearing/sheer pinks and corals to a punchy purple. Its the perfect transition lip before the deep, bold reds of the holiday season come into play. A burgundy or plum pout flatters every skin tone, is the perfect accessory to your scarf and sweater combo AND pops against the auburn/gold Canadian leaves; Eh.

So here are a few of my fall favorites for 2015 shades:

Left to right:

Revlon Just Bitten Balm Stain in the shade Smitten, this is a flat out classic lippie. If you are a lipstick wearing pro or a newbie you should have some of these balm stains in your collection. The formula can be worn sheer, layered with extra gloss or built up to a fuller lip colour. Under $10 at Walmart or drugstore locations and is worth every penny!

MAC Cosmetics lustre lipstick in Plumful, a staple in most beauty lovers lipstick drawers. Its soft, smooth and so easy to wear. Described as a “blossoming rose-plum” it will flatter all ages from high school to hot grandma! $20 at MAC stores and online.

Kat Von D liquid lipstick in Bauhau5, this one is a bit trickier to apply because it really is long lasting! Do not apply in a hurry! However once its applied you wont have to look in the mirror all day, its a matte finish in a beautiful raspberry shade. $24 at Sephora Canada locations.

(These are my new favorite liquid lip colours, I mustn’t be alone because the colours are always sold out online. I am on the waiting list for half of them!)

Bite Beauty matte crème lipstick in Mulled Maple, I could not write a fall favorites post without mentioning the limited edition Bite beauty Canadian inspired lipsticks. These babies are so smooth and pigmented they are like a lip lovers dream. Do not dare to apply without lip liner because they’re so buttery your lips will be sliding all over the place! $28 at Sephora Canada they come in 5 gorgeous fall shades and you have to get your hands on them before they’re gone!

(Oops not sold on them yet?! They also smell like maple syrup, really they do!)

To get in the fall mood I did a quick little photo shoot on a chilly, rainy Newfoundland day..

Thank you so much for having me Samantha and I look forward to chatting with you and your readers again soon! xo

Beautiful Beauty Bloggers: Home Remedy for Moisturizing Face Mask – Guest Post


Today is the fourth day of Pearls and Polkadots’ “Beautiful Beauty Bloggers” series and I could not be happier to have Stephanie from The Remedy Genie guest posting today! She comes up with the most amazing remedies that you can simply do from your home. From hair care to home cleaning, she never disappoints! Make sure you give her blog a read and check out her a-mazing remedies! Happy Reading!


I am so pleased to have been invited as a guest blogger here and I am excited to share with you my latest home remedy. My name is Stephanie and my blog consists of all the best home remedies and I cover everything from Skin and Hair care, to house hold cleaning. I began researching home remedies about five years ago, mostly for skin care and after a while I decided to look into all natural ingredients and their benefits. My aim, is to create as many remedies as I possibly can.


Just as our hair needs conditioning treatment, so does the delicate skin of our face. Our face is the one thing that we leave uncovered for most of the day which means that as we walk around doing our day to day activities, our pores are open to all the pollutants around us. Washing your face daily cleanses and your follow up cream moisturizes, but from time to time we need to apply a nice healthy mask to our face for rejuvenation and healthy skin purposes.

We all have different skin types and we all will have different results with different ingredients of course, so I aim to make remedies and have my friends and family test them with me so that I can share diverse recipes that work for all! Here is a really good home remedy for moisturizing face mask.

Moisturizing Face Mask:


  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 tea spoon organic plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons flour – any type

Mix all the ingredients into a nice thick paste.

Rub the mixture into your face in small amounts like you would with lotion

Then apply a good amount all over and let it sit for about 30 minutes

Rinse and enjoy my home remedy for moisturizing face mask. Id strongly suggest following up with a natural toner and face cream, you can find my recipes under the facial cleansers and creams in the skin and body section.

Give this a try and enjoy the results! I’d love to know if you enjoyed this remedy so please leave and a comment after you have tried. I would also love to hear your favorite remedy so feel free to share them in the comments below.
