For Christmas last year, my mom generously gifted me and Blaine an executive Costco membership to use once we are living in our home. Considering I eat as much as a rhinoceros, buying in bulk makes sense, so I was very happy to be gifted this. Blaine and I are (hopefully) going to be moving … More Run, don’t walk to get this dessert from Costco
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. She and I have become friends since we have gotten to know one another, and she’s flipping awesome in … More Looking for a miracle cream? Read this
I have no shame in admitting that I’m a bit of a perfume junkie; I always have been, and likely always will be. I am pleased to report that my perfume preferences and choices have improved dramatically in terms of quality over the years, and while I do still enjoy the odd body mist, I … More Read this to find your new summer scent
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. Prior to COVID hitting, I wore a full face of makeup just about every day. Fast forward to now and I find myself struggling to find the motivation to simply throw on some … More In need of a new setting powder? Read this
I’ve made mention in a number of previous posts that I am a bit of a perfume junkie. I fully accept this component of my identity, and really, I figure there are far worse things to collect than perfume. I’ve got my favourites, but I’m always enthusiastic to take a whiff of new smells and … More Looking for a lightweight scent? Read this
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. I mean, I’m not a complete imbicile when it comes to knowing what works for my own skin, but I’m certainly not a professional. I am in … More Looking for an affordable chemical peel? Read this
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 had a trim last April and haven’t had one since as I am trying to keep my hair as long as possible for my … More Are Morroccanoil shampoo and conditioner worth the money?
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. More specifically, in the back of it, which I find quite interesting considering all of the pain in my knee is in the front, but the human body doesn’t … More Need a knee brace? Look no further
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. Dark circles can, apparently, strike at … More Looking for an eye cream for dark circles? Read this
We have three dogs on our family farm. During the day, they’re out and about, roaming with someone in my family or they’re in their kennel. In the evenings, we bring them inside our garage where they sleep. We never used to lock our critters inside in the evenings, but ever since our beloved dog … More Does Febreze AIR stand up to stink?
I am, and have been a member of the itty bitty titty committee since I hit puberty. It’s a genetic thing courtesy of my mom and her family, and while for a long time when I was a teenager I was extremely self-conscious of my lacking chest, I have come to the realization that small … More Shein bras: hit or miss?
Sleep is something that has tremendous importance and value to me, personally. I’ve always thoroughly enjoyed sleeping, and to be quite honest, I don’t think I could ever really get enough of it. I’m not exaggerating when I say I think I could sleep for a solid 24 hours. When it comes to sleeping, for … More Sleeping masks: beneficial or a waste of money?
Oily skin, speaking from experience, is a bit of a blessing and a curse. Oily skin is beneficial in the sense that ageing and wrinkles, down the road, are diminished if one has oily skin because the skin is typically quite hydrated. Oily skin can be a real pain in the ass in the sense … More If you have oily skin, read this
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.

Anyone who has heard of Lululemon Athletica before likely knows the price tag attached to any of their products.

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. I actually have more acne now, as an adult, than I did when I was a teenager and going through puberty, which is a rather strong indication of my luck with … More Here’s why you need to try Rael’s pimple patches
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. Some of us are pretty adamant about staying on top of our hair growth and grooming accordingly, while some of us simply don’t give a shit. I wish I … More Product review: Nair Shower Power
I am a perfume junkie. I always have been and likely always will be, and I really have no issue with hoarding samples and bottles until my room smells like a heavenly, rather over-powering oasis, much to my family’s delight. I have my favourites that I have collected over the years, and after looking through … More Looking for the perfect summer scent? Look no further
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. I’ve ordered a few things from SHEIN over the past year or so, and I … More Thinking about buying bras from SHEIN? Read this first
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’ve been craving some cookies and cream ice cream as of late, so I jotted that onto her note and expected her … More Have you had Shaw’s ice cream?
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. Sometimes, the products featured in these sorts of articles can be pretty neat, so I tend to scroll through them from time to time.
