Since we are transitioning between winter and spring (although, it feels more like winter here in Toronto), I figured I should share with you one of my favourite skin care products that I’m completely obsessed with. Before coming across Laneige’s Water Sleeping Mask, I honestly was having a little bit of an issue with my skin (I know such first world problems). I have combination oily skin, so I would notice that whenever the seasons would be transitioning, my skin would start acting wonkydonky (aka dry peeling patches). I never quite was able to find a long-term solution to it, until this product. Everything else I used would temporarily fix or rather moisturize my skin.
This is a gel based water sleeping mask that is meant to rejuvenate and hydrate your skin while you sleep (huzzah for this). Initially, I hadn’t tried a sleeping mask prior to this but I can safely say that I haven’t gone back since using this.
What I love about this product is how simple and easy it is to use. I slather this lightly on my face before bed (once a week) and I wake up with the softest skin I have ever had! It makes my skin extremely radiant and super moisturized. I found that ever since I incorporated this into my skin care routine, I’ve NEVER had those flaky skin issues between seasons changing. In fact, my skin’s elasticity has improved even more. This is perfect for all skin types and I love that this works while you sleep. It literally is every lazy girl’s (or boys) dream come true! It’s got a tiny bit of fragrance to it, but nothing that overpowers. The texture of the formula is AMAZING! Since it is a gel based mask, the formula is super light and doesn’t feel heavy when you apply it. In fact, it feels like you’re using a normal moisturizer. I also found that using this once a week made my skin a lot smoother in the long run. It never has irritated my skin nor has it caused any breakouts, which is a huge plus. I got mine at Sephora for $30 (CDN). Honestly, I hadn’t heard of this brand until I got a sample from Sephora and like I’ve already said, this really was a game changer for my skin in the long run. The size of the product is great because you really don’t need to use a lot of it. I definitely think this is worth every little bit, especially if you’re looking for a sleeping mask that give you results!
- Smells great
- Moisturizes while you sleep
- You wake up with glowy, radiant skin
- Keeps skin super soft
Honestly, Bollywood has taught me so much throughout my life and I wanted to share with you my favourite lol things I’ve learned! Enjoy! x
You’ll always wake up in the morning super happy and super flawless…
Every monumental moment requires a song. No matter what.
Falling in love will be your ticket to a totally different country filled with couture clothing for you and not much clothing for him because he’s worked hard on those abs.
Being abandoned on an island is no problem at all. You can survive without hunting for food or anything really…(Thanks Kaho Na Pyaar Hai for this one).
The family that prays together, eats together, stays together.
Playing Holi (google it) is SO glam. There’s no clean up or mess involved…at all.
Want to run away from your problems? Get on a train!
All the main leads are unbelievably hot.
Who needs an umbrella when it’s raining…you got love & a coat!
Eat whatever the heck you want because you ain’t gaining a single pound!
The dancing is epic.
SRK is perfect.
Everyone needs to be Poo from K3G
Alrighty, hope you enjoyed all the lols! With all jokes aside, I love everything Bollywood has to offer! GIFS courtesy of Giphy.
I’ve decided that I am now going to post everything Bollywood related on Thursdays and to kickstart that decision, I’m bringing you 10 of my favourite looks Anushka Sharma has rocked! If you don’t know who Anushka Sharma is, then just google (obvz). Not only is she a phenomenal actress in Bollywood, but she is also one of the few stylish ones out there. Without further adieu, here are my favourite looks Anushka has rocked:
Uhm, everything about this outfit is GOALZ. 🔥🔥🔥🔥
The style and colour of this saree is so gorgeous! Also, the big jhumka earrings (google the meaning) are pure perfection!
A is killing the ripped jeans trend in this look. The bright yellow blouse and the beige shoes classify this look (lolz).
I’m a sucker for celebs wearing super unique outfits and this one is so chic!
Let Anushka show you how you exactly can nail the festival-boho-chic look.
The colour scheme, the shoes and the print on the skirt is beautiful!
Girl, can I look exactly like this when I wear jeans and a plain shirt? Killing the casual game!🔥
Everyone needs an all black outfit and Anushka looks radiant in this one!
Currently searching online for this exact lehenga….LOVE everything about it.

Hello Dolls! Hope you’re having a great day today! If you haven’t read my previous post, then you can do so by clicking right here. Make sure you follow me on all my social media accounts listed at the top of this page! In this post, I’m going review one of my favourite hair oils I’ve been obsessed with for the last little while. This particular product made my favourite winter care items list and I can’t begin to stress how amazing it really is!
I bought this bottle on a whim at Sephora because that’s literally how I roll sometimes. I didn’t read any previous reviews nor did I read what it does other than the fact that it’s an “invisible” hair oil that is supposed to soften your hair and I was sold just based on that. So when I first used it, I put one pump all over my hair before I air-dried it. I was blown away at the fact that a little bit of oil softened my whole head of hair! Also, it smells so GOOD!
Product Formula and Feel
This oil isn’t oily at all. It feels like a dry oil (I don’t know how else to explain it). There’s no residue nor does it make your hair super oily. As I mentioned, a little goes a long way and you do not need to use a lot of this product, which is great. I found one pump of this was good for my long hair! It smells great. Like wonderful. Like I just want to inhale it all day. lolz. My favourite part of this product is the fact that not only does it soften your hair but it nourishes it without feeling oily. It also tames flyaways and de-frizzes it. Also, I find that it’s SO weightless that it doesn’t even feel like you have oil in your hair. Which I guess makes sense given it’s an “invisible” hair oil. I have thick straight colour treated hair and it works fine for me. I also love that it adds a subtle bit of shine (especially if you’re going for a polished sleek look). It’s acts as a heat protectant and it has UVA/B filters (perf). Honestly, this is one of the best multitasking hair product I have ever used!
Product Formula, Result & Feel Rating: 10/10
Price, availability & accessibility
You can pick this bottle up for $50 (CDN) at Sephora. Yes, I know it’s a hefty price but you don’t need to use a lot at all. I’m not even half way done my bottle and I’ve had it for a while and I use it often.
My hair has never been happier! I am absolutely in love with this product not because it does everything it says it will but because it’s so hassle free and easy to use! This is definitely worth every penny!
Overall Rating: 10/10
See you in the next post!

I’m going to tell you all about my favourite looks from the red carpet.

So basically, I’m going to be rocking this exact look for every business meeting I need to go to. No lie. I mean this whole look screams grungy chic and me likey very much.
GIVE ME THOSE SHOES. Okay, you know I’m really excited about a red carpet look when I’m typing all in caps. I still cannot believe Blake had a baby a few months ago and she looks THIS amazing! LOVE the sparkly fringe.
My inner desi girl gets SO happy when a brown girl walks a red carpet looking THIS stunning. Not only did she win big, she is giving me all kinds of fashion inspiration right here. LOVE IT.
I love gold. I love love bling. I love strappy shoes. So when you combine ALL of that into one look, you know you’re making my best dressed list for life. FOR LIFE! This is PURE perfection!

Hello Dolls! If you haven’t checked out my previous post, then you can do so by clicking right here. As always, make sure to follow me on all my socials by simply searching Daff Diaries or clicking the links on the right hand side of this page! So without further adieu, I give you my review on this raved about palette!
If you’ve been an avid reader of this blog, then you’re already aware of the fact that Kat Von D makes some seriously amazing beauty products (hello, this one’s my all time fav). So, it was only natural that I would want to try this beauty line’s contour palette…especially, given that contouring is and always will be a beauty trend no matter what (thank you Kardashians). When I first saw this palette and swatched it, I fell in love with the fact that both the “shades” and “lights” were matte. The “shades” are the equivalent to the darker contour shades and the “lights” are the matte highlight shades (ain’t that cute?). Also, I love that she includes a How-to-guide in this packaging for newbies like me (bonus). Overall, I was very very VERY impressed when I first saw and tried this product. The names of these shades are pretty Kat Von D like (if you’re familiar with her products). One of my favourite things I noticed was the fact that all the colours in here were natural looking.
Product Application & Formula
The formula has to be one of the best I have ever used, especially for a powder. Seriously, it feels smooth and it’s super easy to blend. You can use a Beauty Blender or a brush and this looks flawless on your skin. One of the biggest pros of this product is the fact that it’s universally flattering for all skin tones. In fact, all the colours included in this palette will work with any skin tone because they’re natural looking shades (depending when the light hits you where). It’s easy to use and I found that I could combine the shades together without it looking cakey on my skin (woohoo). Theyre super buildable and it doesn’t irritate your skin! The best part about this product is that you don’t need a lot of it and it swatches incredibly well (scroll below). Every single shade is extremely opaque and gorgeous! Along with being the perfect formula, the packaging is also nice. It’s got a ginormous mirror and the size is not super big, so you can travel with it.
Product Formula: 10/10
Product Application: 10/10
Can you say GORGEOUS?
Price, Availability & Accessibility
You can pick yours up at Sephora for $55 (CDN).
This has to be one of my most used contour palettes ever. It’s easy to use. It looks extremely natural and never cakey. It’s worth every single dime and I’m convinced that I will be repurchasing this product once I hit pan! The palette isn’t intimidating at all for newbies. You can use and combine these shades to get the perfect contour!

Hi Dolls! If you haven’t checked out my previous blog post, then you can do so by clicking right here! With this year coming to a close, I wanted to share with you 5 celebs who killed it with their hair, fashion and style! This year saw a lot of celebs slaying their style game but these are my favourite ones that stood out:
Can we take a moment and appreciate this Quantico star’s style! I’ve met her before and not only does she slay her fashion choices but she also slays in real life too! This particular outfit was one of my favourites of this year! With every gown and casual outfit PC wore, she proved more and more why she is Hollywood’s next IT girl.
When Kristen Bell wore this gown, she knew that she would be making news! Not only was this one of the most memorable red carpet moments of 2016, it also inspired many people to wear floral prints again! I love how simple Kristen always keeps it with her style and anything she wore this year was nothing short of cool!
Beyonce & Blue Ivy
Beyonce’s Instagram was on fleek this year. Not only did she showcase all her outfits but she also gave us a glimpse of Blue’s budding fashion moments. Seriously, I’m not even surprised because Beyonce slays anything and everything she touches. This particular look was one of my favs because of its fashion forward simplicity. Tres chic!
Again, anything Michelle wears becomes a fashion statement and everything she wore in her last year as First Lady became an instant fashion statement. There are very few political figures that can slay their fashion choices but Michelle has easily become a fashion icon. This particular look was stunning on Michelle!
Does Kate Middleton ever dress horribly? Like I have yet to see a single outfit I don’t like that she has worn. Every thing she wears, sells out within minutes and that’s why she has become one of my favourite royals to follow! Her fashion choices this year was nothing short of perfection and I can’t wait to see what 2017 holds for her!
See you in the next post!
