Photo 1-12-14 10 52 16 pmThe first time I went to Grandview Park, there was almost no one else there; sitting at the top of the steps was one of the most peaceful times ever. As you can tell, I’m obsessed with any place by the ocean, or high up with a great view. And let me tell you, the view from here is spectacular. You get a 360˚ view of the city, and since it’s in a pretty quiet neighbourhood, it’s not jam-packed with people. Twin peaks is also really nice and makes for a great hike if you walk!

It makes for a nice short trip, and I went back a second time to see the sunset from up there. Alternatively, bring a nice book, sit on the bench right at the top and read the afternoon away.

No, this isn’t about birds or angels, or whatever other winged creatures there are out there. It’s about eyeliner (sorry for the let-down if you were expecting an animal post, though there was a bat in my bedroom the other day!!).

I’m talking about classic winged eyeliner. So, you probably don’t need me telling you about it, I mean I even referred to it as ‘classic’, but I thought I’d dedicate a post to it since it’s one of my favourite ways to do my eyes.IMG_6111IMG_6122

 

 

It’s simple, it’s sharp; and topped off with the little flick on the end, it manages to draw attention to your eyes and elongate their shape. My favourite liner is the Maybelline Hypersharp liner in ‘blackest black’. It’s like a liquid pencil that glides on really easily and has a ultra fine tip for the most precise finish.

Just wing it:) (Sorry I’m well aware of how cheesy that sounds.)
