    No Make-Up Look

    I have been trying to ditch the makeup, purely out of laziness. Like most people, working from home has created an endless routine of sports bras, messy buns, and no makeup. When I have to leave the house, I really have to push myself to get ready. I hate the feeling of removing mascara from my eyelashes at the end of the day or looking in the mirror, only to discover that crusty crumbs of my mascara are now dusting my undereyes. Determining which occassions garner a prepped face was becoming very challening. I decided that a scaled back, low maintenance routine was needed. Don’t get me wrong, I love…

As a newbie to the cocktail world, I did extensive research on all the bar cart essentials. My starting off…

    How to Build a Skincare Routine

    Beyond cleanser, toner, and moisturizer, what other active ingredients do you need for your skin? A Complete Guide on How to build a day and nighttime skincare regime. My skincare routine consists of buying whatever fad products are in the market and then waiting for them to die out. JLo has me fully convinced there is a fountain of youth and I know it is not filled with olive oil. My approach has been mostly trial and error, but I do get quite a few questions on my Instagram about my skincare routine and I have really been limping through it. I took it upon myself to scour the internet…

    My Boho Inspired Master Bedroom

    My favourite neutrals, budget-friendly tips, and all the things that make my bedroom cosy. When I first moved into my place it was the opposite of relaxing, there were so many different paint colours and window treatments, it wasn’t speaking to my aesthetic. Over the years, I have been slowly chipping away at making upgrades. Switching out my queen for a king was a pretty bold move for my small space. It also meant finding bedside tables that would allow the switch. To accommodate my growing wardrobe, I had to add in a PAX wardrobe. A drastic closet edit is probably needed, since I have way too many clothes and…

    One-Step Hair Dryer – Revlon Vs Hot Tools

    I reviewed styling brushes so you don’t have to! I was recently in Whistler with my girlfriends and they were hyping the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer Hot Air Brush. I couldn’t believe that they all had this brush and I had never even heard of it. The product is supposed to help you create a salon-style blowout at home. Since I only wash my hair every couple of days, getting long-lasting results from my blow out is something that makes my life a lot easier. Hot Tools Professional One-Step Blowout Styler I immediately went to London Drugs to get the brush but unfortunately, they only had a Hot…

    Home Office Decor Ideas

    I am revealing how I maximized my small space to accommodate a home office set up Working from home is nothing new for me. I have been primarily a remote worker since 2017. Although a home office can have its perks, I got used to having the occasional work from home day and spending the majority of my time in the office. It was nice to have the separation between home and work. With everything that is going on in the world, it is not surprise that I am now confined to working from home. The first few weeks, I took over my dining table but it really is a…

    Summer Shopping List

    I can’t believe that August is just around the corner. Summer is by far my favourite season, it is no secret that I live for the beach. Most weekends I spend the majority of my time outside working on my tan.

My Summer Essentials Hexagonal Flat Lenses A good dupe for the Ray Ban Hexagonal Flat Lenses with a way nicer price tag. These retail for under $20 and they are the perfect summer sunnies.

    Beauty: These are a Few of My Favourite Things

    “Seasons change and our love went cold” With the change of the seasons, I have to adjust my daily beauty regime; the winter months bring pale dry dull skin and subdued colours, so hot right? In the fall I had posted my go-to skin products, so I thought I would do a round-up of all the products I am loving this winter. My winter beauty regime requires a little bit more upkeep; I don’t feel like myself unless I have a natural sun-kissed glow and bright radiant complexion (at least that is the goal). A Touch Of Colour I have been experimenting with sunless tanners for the face and I…
