FOTD & OOTD | I don't know where I belong, I don't know where I went wrong

Hi ladies! Nothing was really planned for my boyfriend's birthday which fell a Monday, but since we both recently had Tuesday and Wednesday off, we thought it would be fun to rent an hotel room in Montreal on a whim. We searched the net for the best offer since we did not want to shell out $200 for such a short holiday, so we ended up at Casa de Mateo, where it did not take us long to understand why the room only costed $80 - oh well, I guess we had our lesson! Anyway, we enjoyed a relaxing night at The 3 Brewers where we indulged in some delicious beers and I had their scrumptious Chèvre chaud open-faced sandwich (warm goat cheese on toasted country bread with tomatoes, fresh herbs and seasoned olive oil, served with salad and fries - yum!).

Benefit The POREfessional | L'Oreal Touche Magique Concealer* | NYC Loose Translucent Face Powder*| Marcelle Concealer Palette 'Universal Beige' | Annabelle Biggy Bronzing Powder 'Caribbean Sun' | Illamasqua Powder Blush 'Tremble'

I have been using Illamasqua Powder Blush in Tremble every day since I received it from the beautiful Lilit who generously offered it as a giveaway prize. On the Illamasqua website, it is described as a soft lilac pink which I find weird since to me, it is really a pale coral pink to me, which never fails to warm my face in seconds.

Dior Diorshow Extase Mascara 'Black' | Essence Mono Eyeshadow 'Party All Night' | MAC Eye Pencil - Ebony* | Wet n Wild Color Icon Liner Brow & Eye Pencil - Taupe | EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm 'Strawberry Sorbet'

I have been obsessed with Essence Metallic Effect Eyeshadow in Party All Night since I realized that it is actually really similar to my beloved Too Faced 'Sitcom Siren' - it is a gorgeous metallic taupe brown which is a great everyday shade, and I was amazed at its quality - it is just so buttery and it blends super nicely!

This Bambi jumper is my current favorite piece of clothing - it is just so cozy and comfy, especially paired with leggings, although from its picture on the ROMWE website, I was expecting it to be longer, a bit more fitting and less see-through, but it's still cute!

Oh, and those boots - I instantly fell in love with them as soon as I spotted them at Giant Tiger. I knew I had to have them since there was only one pair left in my size, I did not have any high heel boots, they fitted so well, they are comfy and they were only $30! They were actually a Christmas gift from my mother though - thanks mom.

François and I, acting silly (:
