My first haul video... EVER! (VIDEO)

Hello to all you lovely people reading this!

So I wasn't sure if I was going to post this after posting my first video such a short while ago... but I posted part one to my first haul on YouTube!

Back to the vlogger life, I suppose?

For those of you reading this who didn't know, which is likely 95% of you, once upon a time I used to my videos on YouTube. Fairly regularly. I used to be pretty active in the community, have friends I would talk to every night on Skype, and go to gatherings.

And then, university applications and then classes took over my life and I haven't made videos since...


Prepare yourself for my awkward ramblings and excessive jump-cutting. It's an addiction.

Stay sweet.

Unboxing/Review: Influenster Maple VoxBox.

My first VoxBox just came in! An on the crappiest of days, no less. Just the thing I needed to cheer myself up a bit!

For those who don't know what Influenster is, it's a site that you have to be invited to or request an invite for. You complete some surveys, write some reviews and if you are active enough you can qualify for boxes of new products for you to review. It takes patience, I've been on Influenster for over a year, and I believe this is their first box for Canadians that I luckily qualified for.

So to keep from blabbering, on to the unboxing!

Halloween DIY: Fake melted pillar candle tealight holders!

Holy wow. Is that DIY name a mouthful or what?

Here I give you the first of what will likely be many more DIYs I will post to this blog. This is the first Halloween I've had living in my own place that I actually want to decorate. I was living in student housing before (nothing like a room with thin plaster walls and checkered tiles?), and since moving into my new place almost a full year ago, I never really got a chance to even think about decorating for holidays. Mostly just unpacking boxes and assembling furniture. Which I am still doing. It's a little pathetic.

So I bring to you today an easy, wallet-friendly Halloween DIY that you can make with supplies you likely already have lying around the house!

Toronto Fashion Week 2013: My first fashion show!

So yesterday, I was definitely walking on clouds. At 1:45 PM I got a text from my friend Christine Lieu of In Lieu Of Apparel asking me if I wanted to go to see the 3 PM Hilary MacMillan show at World MasterCard Toronto Fashion Week. After about 15 minutes of deliberating due to the on-call I had at work for 6 PM (that's about a 1 1/2 hour commute away), I leaped into action and began scrambling for what to wear. You see, I have never been to Fashion Week. I have never seen a fashion show live. The closest I've ever gotten to seeing a live fashion show before yesterday was watching runways online and the Victoria's Secret fashion shows on TV. I had no idea what clothing to put on my body.

So after throwing probably every article of clothing and footwear I own around my apartment, I got dressed, threw on my most chic Steve Madden coat and ran like a mother****** out my door. I got to the tents right as it started to rain with 15 minutes to spare before the show. I was sweaty and gross and astonished my makeup had stayed in place... but I didn't care. I found Christine and we bolted inside and took our seats.

Review: Honey by Marc Jacobs

So... first post, eh? Awkward. Feels like a first date. Only it's over a blog, not a dinner table or bag of popcorn.

It seems that most of my social networking names link back to the first motif of my internet identity, a bumblebee. So I figured... hey, why not find a way to tie that into the name here too? On that note, I figure it only appropriate to start off by doing a review of this new scent in my (albeit, quite small) perfume collection.

My name's Michaela, or Mickie as my friends call me.

I'm a student, an illustrator, a blogger, and a seasoned vlogger. I love fashion, beauty, art... and this is my little soapbox to tell the whole world about it.

Let's be friends?
