Fall has certainly made its presence known here in Ontario as of late. Once the official first day of Autumn arrived, the temperature dropped dramatically, and it hasn’t really come back up into what one may consider warm temperatures. Now that fall is upon us and winter is coming (said in John Snow’s voice), there … More Dry hair? Read this
Quite a few years ago, I was blessed to come across an item in the supermarket known as Tajín. If I remember correctly, I picked this up while doing some grocery shopping while I was in university, and I fell head-over-heels in love with the stuff. Devastatingly, I haven’t been able to spot this glorious … More Looking to flavour your food with something new? Read this
I have a love/hate relationship with my hair. As I’ve stated several times here on my blog before, as much as I enjoy and appreciate having long locks, at times I am significantly tempted to grab my husband’s clippers and shave it off. When I’m feeling the urge to buzz it, it’s usually because I’ve … More Looking for an all-around beneficial hair product? Check this out
When I was still living with my mom and dad, I was fortunate and privileged in the sense that my mom took care of our entire family’s laundry. Sure, I helped out with it occasionally, but my mom takes full credit for doing laundry for a large component of my life. My mom is rather … More Are Gain Fireworks worth trying?
While Blaine and I have just about all the furntiture we require in our home, with the exception of one or two things, our walls are looking a little barren seeing as we are seriously lacking in the art department. We have a few things hung at this point, and we will definitely display some … More Looking for some unique art for your home? Read this
As mentioned in yesterday’s post, my mom and I recently made a trip to Costco. I picked up some new goodies as well as some I’ve been getting from Costco for a while, one such item being the cookies that they bake in-store. Costco actually has a rather impressive selection of baked goods. If I’m … More Costco cookies: yes or no?
My mom and I ventured out to Costco a few days ago for a long overdue visit. She and I had been trying to determine a day to go to stock up on some goodies that suited the both of us, but things tend to get a little squirrely scheduling-wise when we are in the … More Run, don’t walk to grab this from Costco
I’ve never really been one to wear shoes indoors. I don’t have anything against folks who do wear shoes inside their home, but because I grew up in an impeccably clean home, I simply didn’t need to don shoes. Ya know? That isn’t to say if you wear shoes inside that your house isn’t clean. … More Looking for some comfy slides? Read this
I didn’t think I would ever get to a point in my life in which I’m writing blog posts about dish soap, but here we are.

In lieu of yesterday’s post, one might think I’m on a bit of a cleaning kick as of late. For anyone thinking this, you’re absolutely right.

I’ll apologize in advance for stating this well-known fact to any of my readers by now, but it is relevant to the subject matter of this post; Blaine and I have been living in our home for almost two weeks now, and it has been interesting, to say the least. I’m not going to be … More Are Roomba vacuums worth the money?
Podcasts aren’t new. They’ve been around for a hot minute, and most of us are fully aware of how great they are. Everyone but me, apparently, but I am pleased to report that I recently have begun to delve into the black hole of available podcasts, and so far, I’m really enjoying their existence. In … More The beauty of podcasts
I have no shame in admitting I’m a sweaty bitch. I always have been, and likely always will be. Some folks sweat more than others, and I’m definitely in the sweats easily classification. When I was in high school, there were semesters in which I would have gym mid-day, followed by an English or math … More Read this if you sweat easily
I believe I first started getting acne when I was around the age of 13. I could be off by a few years; I didn’t exactly make note of when I first noticed a volcanic eruption occurring on my face, if you can imagine that. Fast-forward to now and I’m still dealing with acne. I’m … More Dealing with a stubborn zit? Read this
I wouldn’t exactly say my love for Costco comes as a surprise after I mentioned it in my post a little while ago about Tiramisu. It may be more accurate to admit I have a somewhat toxic relationship with Costco, but honestly, I’m okay with it because of all of the happiness it brings me. … More Love pickles? Read this
For Christmas last year, my mom generously gifted me and Blaine an executive Costco membership to use once we are living in our home.

Not too long ago, I had my bridal makeup trial, if you will, with the truly lovely gal who is doing my makeup, as well as the makeup for my bridal party, on the big day.

Last week, I met up with a dear friend of mine for dinner. We had a wonderful time, as per usual, and I noticed while sitting across from her at the table that her face makeup looked incredible. I could tell she had makeup on, but it was so beautifully subtle and natural, so I … More Looking for a tinted facial sunscreen? Read this
I wouldn’t exactly say I’m shy when it comes to trying new makeup products. When I say new products, I’m referring to buying new versions of the same items I’ve been using for a while now, because while I’m willing to try new things in the makeup realm, I’m not overly adventurous. I’m not sure … More Looking for an eyebrow filler? Read this
I will be entirely transparent and admit that since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, I’ve been slacking with my makeup game.

I’ve made mention in a number of previous posts that I am a bit of a perfume junkie.

I will be entirely candid and admit that as much as I like to believe I’m super savvy and knowledgeable in the realm of skincare, I’m really not.

The length of my hair, currently, is arguably the longest it has ever been. I’ve had long hair for a while now, long meaning it stops just above my ass.

I mentioned in a post a little who ago that I recently found out that I have something called a Baker’s Cyst in my left knee.

I’ve been blogging here for a few years now, and not once, to the best of my recollection, have I shared that I am a smoker. I think my hesitance to share this with you is because when I first started smoking way back when I was in university, I hid it from most people. … More Attention all vapers: the Vaporesso Xros 2 is what you want and need
Mascara, for me, personally, has always been an absolutely essential component in my makeup routine. I have smaller, hooded eyes, so when I don’t wear mascara, people typically ask me if I am exceptionally tired, or exceptionally sick. Being a woman is just grand sometimes, I’ll tell ya. I’ve tried my share of mascara over … More All hail L’Oréal Paris Telescopic mascara
As reluctant as I am to admit that I have dark circles under my eyes at the ripe age of 26, I also figure it might be beneficial to share this in case there are other young folks out there experiencing the same thing and feeling badly about it.
