Happy Birthday: The Blog is 1, let’s do a 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!”

The Ordinary

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 is here!

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

The Custom Lipstick Experience

Bite Lip Lab TO.001

So I finally went to the Bite Lip Lab to do the custom lipstick creation. In my previous post about the lip lab I had mentioned that I didn’t really want to pay that much for one lipstick especially seeing as there is no shortage to my lipstick hoarding….but also mentioned that it would make a great gift. Hint Continue reading “The Custom Lipstick Experience”
