April Playlist

It has become that time again! As april comes to an end I look back and reflect on all the great things that have happened this month. Summer is approaching and with all of the great adventures coming up I am excited to share them with you! I will be road tripping with my mom to Montreal in a week so I can't wait to share my next post of all the fun we will have and all of my friends I get to see!

What excited plans do you have this summer? Do you have any exciting classes you are taking?

Remember to be who you are, and always love yourself.

A Little Bit About Me!

The only picture that explains me in a nutshell.

Well hello there! While most of my current readers I know in person, I have a few who do not know much about me! To start off my name is Claudia Madeleine Champagne-Britt. I was born to a French-Canadian mother, Lyn Champagne, and a Florida-native, Randall Britt. At the age of two I began figure skating, and every day of my adolescent life was dedicated to the sport. Reflecting on it now, I am incredibly happy I spent the majority of my childhood practicing this sport. Not only because I was in love with it, and I'm happy I spent my days doing what I loved, but also because the skating rink was where I met some of the most extraordinary people, and they are still my friends today.

 Up until I was 18, my life was fairly ordinary: consisting of school, after school activities, and hanging out with close friends. In the winter of 2012, I decided that my life of living in the very humid Sunshine State was merely the first chapter, and that it had ended. I packed up my things and moved to Montréal, Canada. Knowing about as many people as I could count on one hand, I applied for internships all over the city, hoping to meet people with similar interests and become familiar with my future job field. I landed two amazing Internships, both of which I accepted. One was Skoop Agency, and the other was IX Daily, which I wrote weekly articles about all things fashion-related.

Later in the year, I began attending Lasalle College to get a degree in Fashion Marketing. While I met loads of new, wonderful people (including two of my current best friends), there was something inside of me telling me that I didn't love my new life as much as I was pretending to. After getting some much-needed advice from my former boss, Bessy at Skoop Agency, I decided to once again pack up my things and move back down to Florida. Now that I'm back I hear the same questions nearly every other day: "Oh, I thought you were living in Canada?" "Are you back for good?" I chuckle to myself as I think of all the possible answers I could give, but in reality - the answer is no. I am only here for a short while, until a new opportunity arises where I can keep moving forward.

 Given that right now I am enrolled in classes, I felt I needed an outlet to share all the things I love most, and seeing others enjoy them as well, so I created this blog to do exactly that and continue my love of writing. I am excited to see where this blog leads me - and see what possible outcomes or opportunities will transpire from it!

Ulta Haul

Good morning! Recently, I have been on a tight budget for saving for things like a new Canon camera, flights to Vidcon, and saving just in general for school and the future. While saving, I noticed my favourite Chanel Les 4 Ombres had gone missing. Sadly I couldn't retrieve it so I decided to go out on a mini Ulta shopping spree to get some necessary items. If you aren't from America, Ulta is a salon, cosmetics, and fragrance store which carries a diverse collection of products for people with any kind of budget.

 1. I was first going to blow my money on a Naked 2 palette but a friend persuaded me out of it knowing I would never use it anyway. Instead I found this great natural collection by NYX. The eyeshadow is powder-like so its a great combination with eye primers. You can buy this palette online at ULTA for $7.49 USD.

2. Now, I have EXTREMELY dry skin so I was looking for something that would tame it while also not being too oily. Lucky for me the manager on site had much knowledge on the subject and helped me pick a cream which works like magic! This Neutrogena Sensitive Skin cream can be found at Neutrogena online for $9.99 USD.

3. Last but not least is this brush set I found by Eco-tools. I have been using the Chanel Vitalumière Aqua Liquid Foundation for awhile now but never had a correct tool to apply it on with. After a attentive examination I picked this pack which is easy to use, has a great design and the bristles are amazingly soft. I couldn't find the exact match but they also make a pack very similar that you can buy at ULTA for $17.99 USD.

Another treat that came in the mail this week were my Printstagr.am prints! This website turns your personal Instagram pictures into magnets, picture books, stickers and much more! I decided to start a wall above my bed of pictures that remind me of occasions that make me happy!

What's something you wish you could do with a memory of your happiest moments?
