A little while ago, Blaine and I ventured out to our local Lowe’s store to browse for and potentially purchase some appliances for our future home. We wanted to do this sooner than later as we have heard from a lot of people that COVID-19 has dramatically slowed down shipments of appliances and we didn’t … More Need new appliances? Read this
Anyone who has heard of Lululemon Athletica before likely knows the price tag attached to any of their products. I can recall being in elementary school and longing for the classic Lululemon sweater all the gals wore, only to discover the cost of them and quickly coming to the realization I potentially wouldn’t ever own … More Is Lululemon worth the money?
There are a few items in the fashion industry that have been kicking around for quite a while now, with no intentions of disappearing anytime soon. Some examples, off the top of my head, include Crocs, Birkenstock sandals, and Lululemon athletic pants.

I’m at a point in my life in which I’ve grown rather tired of meticulously filling in and carving out my eyebrows to enable them to look as though they grow perfectly on my face. It’s time consuming, frustrating, and, for me, personally, somewhat stupid. I decided to embrace a more natural eyebrow look this … More e.l.f. Wow Brow: a hidden gem
It’s no secret to anyone who reads my blog somewhat consistently that acne has been a constant in my life for quite a while.

Being low in iron is something that a heck of a lot of us are all too familiar with. I couldn’t count the number of folks I know who use daily iron supplements, myself included, and I’m willing to bet there are a lot more people I know using this form of supplement than I’m … More Looking for an iron supplement?

I’m not what you would call a big drinker when it comes to alcohol. I never have been, and likely never will, solely because I was raised by two parents who don’t drink terribly often, and an older sister who doesn’t drink period. Don’t get me wrong, I still have a few drinks from time … More Have you tried Storyteller Beverage Company’s Bees Knees?
Body hair is one of things that, for women, is either of utmost importance or gets shunted to the back burner in terms of removing it.

I am a perfume junkie.

SHEIN, within the past little while, has seriously exploded onto the women’s clothing scene. Men’s clothing, too, although from my own observations, it seems as though more women tend to purchase from SHEIN than men, but I could be wrong.

A couple of days ago, my mom informed me she was going grocery shopping and requested that if there were any items I was in need of to write them on her list.

I am willing to bet that just about all of us, at some point or another, have seen or heard about blackhead strips. Or, perhaps I should refer to them as blackhead removing strips, seeing as that is what the products aims to do; pull blackheads out of the skin to reveal clear(er) pores. Blackheads … More Are blackhead strips worth the money?
I was reading a Buzzfeed article not too long ago listing some of the best beauty and hygiene products that Amazon has to offer.

For anyone who hasn’t made use of a vegetable powder, it is understandable why the purpose of it may be questioned. Why take vegetables in a powder form when you can just eat them as is?

As someone who thoroughly appreciates and enjoys the aesthetic pleasures of plants but seemingly manages to kill them despite my best efforts, fake plants are a must.

I wrote a post the other day about satin pillowcases and whether or not they’re worth investing in.

I can’t really say I’m someone who consumes a lot of protein bars. They’ve never really been of significant interest to me, and considering a lot of us eat them for breakfast and I prefer a warm meal when I wake up, I just haven’t given them a whole lot of thought. My mom brought … More Looking for a clean protein bar? Try RXBAR’s
Artificial intelligence-based technology has somewhat inundated our lives since products like Alexa and Google Home have been released. For many of us, these devices are integral components of daily life, while for others they remain a foreign and arguably somewhat intimidating concept. When these types of products first hit the market, I recall being intrigued … More Thinking about purchasing a Google Nest? Read this
I’ve made mention of my love for fragrance here on my blog before, and shockingly enough, it’s time to revisit the topic. I really am a scents person, and I have a serious appreciation for all things smelly (in a good way). Whether it be candles, room and/or body sprays, or perfume, if I find … More Have you ordered from Charmed Aroma?
This summer here in Ontario has been a scorcher. Excessively high temperatures with an insignificant amount of rain has caused a lot of vegetation to dry up and unfortunately die, and the suns rays seem to be getting hotter and hotter every year. We’re aware of the damage that can occur to our skin as … More Dry, summer hair? Try this hair mask
Up until a few years ago, I wasn’t ever really into crime-based shows. They used to scare me when I was young, and because of my fear of them I distanced myself from anything crime-related for quite a while. When I was in university I started to develop an interest in them, though, and now, … More Have you seen Unsolved Mysteries?
When it comes to makeup, I’m a little bit boring.

Caring for our skin in the Summer months here in Ontario can be a bit trickier than caring for it in the Spring, Fall, or even Winter.

Dry hair has always been an issue for me. I’m willing to experiment with new products in an attempt to designate one that really works for me and my hair, but it can be frustrating to find a winner.

I came to the realization not too long ago that I don’t own a pair of running shoes. I know I did at some point, but I’m not exactly sure where they went, so I figured owning one pair of sneakers probably isn’t a bad idea and decided to do some research to determine which … More Looking for some casual sneakers?

I’ve been in dire need of a new phone case for about a year now.

I first heard about scalp massagers a while ago, and to be honest, I sort of thought they were a gimmick. I failed to see the purpose of a device that claimed to massage your head when our fingers could achieve the same outcome, and so I wrote the idea off for quite some time. … More Have you used a shampoo scalp massager?
When it comes to wine, I’m certainly more of a fan of whites than I am reds. I’ve tried to sophisticate my palate enough to appreciate the taste of red wine, but I find it tastes like battery acid, so I’m content drinking whites for now. My mom had a bottle of Bodacious’ Moscato that … More Looking for a fresh, tasty Moscato? Try Bodacious’
As I’ve mentioned before, I’m always trying new things, within reason, when it comes to my skin.

I have been using a … More Here’s a face cleanser to get you and your skin feeling fresh for Spring
