My relationship with Dior started when I was 9. My mom has been using Dior skincare and makeup for as long as I can remember, and I’ve always been curious about the products she used. She had this Dior travel palette from the mid-90s that contained eyeshadows, blushes and the typical travel palette minis such as glossses and a mini liner. I remember there was one time in grade 3 where my school was having a potluck of some kind, and I had the genius idea of giving myself a smokey eye with dark aubergine eyeshadow. You can already tell that didn’t turn out too well.
Since then, my love for Dior has only grown. Dior skincare was one of the first skincare products I ever purchased for myself at age 19. I remember working really hard at my summer job so that I could afford the luxury skincare, but my mother, in her mid 40s at the time, had incredible skin that I attributed completely to her years of Dior skincare use.
It was also around that time when I started collecting limited edition Dior makeup baubles. Dior used to release limited edition collectible, wearable makeup jewelry or charms with certain seasonal collections. I was completely enamored with those products, always buying them to keep in a keepsake box, and refusing to touch them. They remain untouched, even to this day, with several of them keeping their original packaging with all of the tissue paper in tact. Since then, I’ve been a bit more careful with how I spend my money so I haven’t been buying as much makeup to just look at anymore, but I still keep the Dior ones as my most prized possessions. With the weather being so nice lately, I wanted to bring them out and share with you guys, because they are so dear to me.

Out of my collection, my favourites are probably the Dior Pretty Charm Secret Lip Gloss, because it’s so girly and cute, and the Dior Lady Dior Compact, because it’s probably the closest thing to a Lady Dior I’ll own in my collection.
There were a couple that I didn’t end up getting, that I somewhat regret not being able to add to my collection. Namely, the Dior Princess Ring, and the DiorLight Holiday Bright Lip Gloss necklace from Holiday 2007. I might scour eBay one day just to have a complete collection, but it’s not much of a priority to me now.
