Beauty Spotlight: This Product Changed My Blush Game

So, I’m a little late to the game. Used to my tried and true powder formulation blushes, I had no desire to use anything else until a couple of months ago when a makeup artist “showed me the light” and introduced me to Benefit Benetint.

Tales From A Girl Who Desperately Wants a Chanel Bag

Warning: If you don’t like reading about ridiculous first world problems, then this post is not for you.

First World Problems Chanel Bag iPhone Style DOmination Fashion Blogger
Ahhhh yes. First World Problems at their finest.

I’m not the most complex person.  I like sleeping in, cats, dogs, warm cups of tea, goofing off with my sisters and my friends, and I get excited about dumb stuff like finding change in a pocket or two-for-one deals on chocolate bars.

Award Tour!!

Hi all!

I want to thank every single blogger who has nominated me for an award!  I am truly flattered.  Not to toot my own horn, but there are so many awards that I have been nominated for and tag posts to complete, that I’ve had a hard time keeping up. I feel the best way to share my answers with everyone is to do two or three combined posts over the next week or so to cover all of these great awards and tags!

First up, The Real Neat Blog Award!  A huge thank you to fivezero for nominating me! Continue reading Award Tour!!

Happy Anniversary, Style Domination!

Hi all!

Today marks the sixth month anniversary of my blog!

I wanted to take the time to thank each and every one of you for following along, liking my posts, reblogging, and hell –  I even want to thank the crazy trolls and amorous stalkers.

I was encouraged to start this blog by my loving husband Ryan, best friend Vanessa and my two loving sisters, Erika and Alice.  A few weeks after starting, my wonderful friend Katie of YOW City Style pushed me to really unleash my creative flow on the world and get in front of the camera more.

This has been a great learning process.  I’m honing my writing skills, meeting a ton of great people, my social life has skyrocketed and opportunities abound.

Best of all, I’ve met a ton of new friends, both in real life and online.  I think one of the most satisfying things of all is actually meeting my new online friends face-to-face!

So again, thank you so much for your support and encouragement.  Thank you for sending me post ideas, items to review on the blog and commenting.  Means a lot.

Peace and love to you all,

m0851: A Style Domination Store Profile

After the Alfred & Co. fashion show I attended a few weeks ago, I had a little spare time on my hands before heading home.  Since I was downtown in Ottawa’s beautiful Byward Market, I thought I’d take a little stroll down Sussex Drive and poke into a few of the cute boutiques and see if I could find a dress for the upcoming Bashnoir event.

As per usual, I got sidetracked. m0851 caught my eye – a gorgeous, modern yet warm leather goods boutique that I had read about and seen online, but never had a chance to visit.  I thought “Why not?”, and headed on in. Continue reading m0851: A Style Domination Store Profile
