If you’re like me then you probably haven’t started your Christmas shopping yet. Well actually that’s not true, I’ve bought a Mrs Potato Head toy but that’s about it. No need to panic though, this year my holiday gift guide is made for the last minute shopper! And seeing as we have no time to waste, let’s dive right in…… Continue reading “The Last Minute Gift Guide”
With holiday party season in full swing, it’s always handy to have a few beauty essentials that will take your 9-5 look into party mode without much fuss. I have two criteria for what makes a good party bag essential; 1. it needs to be quick and hassle free 2. it needs to be small so I can fit it into my small bag. Here are six (+ an honourable mention) that I’ve been loving recently! Continue reading “Holiday Party Bag Essentials”
One of the things that I love about living in Canada are the seasons and weather-wise we really do get one extreme to another so I’m always on the hunt for a good lip balm especially once the cold weather starts. I’ve got a couple tried and true options and three newer lip balms that I’ve been testing out recently, let’s start with those! Continue reading “Hydrating Lip Balms”
If you follow me on Instagram, you will have seen my post about the Glossier Pop-up that rolled into town the week before. As it was walking distance from my house, I decided to go and have a look….who are we kidding? It could have been on the other side of the GTA and I still would have gone.

Aaaaand I’m back! As I’ve sat down to write this post, it’s come to my attention that I haven’t posted in 24 days which is neglectful to say the least. Although maybe some of you were grateful for the break, ha! Let’s all ease back in with a review of the Fall FabFitFun box.
If FFF is new to you, it’s a subscription service box that is delivered quarterly and contains an array of seasonal items – fashion, beauty, fitness & lifestyle. I personally enjoy the boxes because: Continue reading “FabFitFun Fall Box Review”
There’s a new loose powder on the beauty scene….sorry WOWder not powder. It’s from Glossier and normally I wouldn’t bother with a loose powder (for many reasons) but I’ve also been enjoying so many of the brand’s products that I decided to give it a go.
You can order it with the cute pink handled brush or just the powder alone. It was tempting to get the combo set but I really don’t need any more brushes so I just went for the powder alone which sells for a very reasonable $27 CAD. I got the shade Light/Medium (it only comes in 3 options) and it blends in seamlessly with my skin. Continue reading “WOWder”
Congratulations firstname.lastname@example.org You are the winner of the birthday blog give-away!! Continue reading “Birthday Blog Give-away”
The blog turns 1 today! I can’t believe it’s been a year already. I started this blog just after my daughter was born and in a way, it’s really become my second baby. Continue reading “Happy Birthday: The Blog is 1, let’s do a give-away!”
This brand has been buzzed about so much over the last year. I have to admit that it piqued my interest but I was also skeptical about the price point. How could something so cheap be fully effective? I get the “no frills” thing and I’m a big fan of skincare just getting to the point and omitting dyes and perfumes (a la First Aid Beauty style) but this just seems almost too cheap. So I delved into testing out a few products to see what all the fuss is about. Continue reading “The Ordinary”
Glossier has finally arrived in Canada, woohoo!!! Previously Glossier only delivered within the US and even if you had a US address to send the product to, you needed to have a US zip code billing address in order to use your credit card. It was pretty much mission impossible for Canadians to get their hands on Glossier unless you were visiting the show room in New York. As of today they are now shipping to most Canadians (with the exception of Quebec) so get your orders in friends! Here is a link for 10% off your first order
