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
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.

I have no shame in admitting that I’m a bit of a perfume junkie; I always have been, and likely always will be.

Similar to my post about tanning, I would like to claim this opportunity to profess that I am not someone who gets their eyelashes done frequently.

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 am not someone who frequently visits any type of salon, studio, or beauty-related business. I never have, and probably never will, simply because the world of aesthetics and all of its services have never really appealed to me. Working on a farm isn’t exactly a profession in which beauty and my appearance are my … More Here’s why you need to visit Blush Medical Aesthetics
I will be entirely transparent and admit that since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, I’ve been slacking with my makeup game.

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 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?
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
While this time of year is often referred to as the most wonderful, it is also, understandably, quite stressful for some of us. I’d wager more of us than not can relate to my previous statement. With family gatherings, dinners, gifts and decorating, it makes sense that we might be feeling a bit overwhelmed. Throw … More Here’s to self-care this holiday season
My cuticles and I have a bit of a history. Considering I was such an aggressive nail-biter when I was younger and quite frequently used my teeth to rip the entirety of the cuticle off of each and every nail, it makes sense that they now are thicker than a snicker, and the bastards grow … More Check out these cuticle removing solutions to make at home
My nails and I have been on quite a journey together. A transitional one at that. When I was younger, probably about ten or 11, I discovered the scrutinized habit commonly known as biting my nails. I didn’t just bite my nails; I chewed the skin surrounding my nails as well, and over time, my … More These are some of the best products you can purchase for your nails
Makeup is something I have grown to appreciate as I have gotten older. When I was in my early teens, I would dabble with some mascara and maybe a bit of concealer from time to time, for example, if it was picture day or something, and that was about it. Once I started getting acne, … More Have you heard of this new sustainable makeup company?
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.

Grey hair is something that a lot of us tremendously fear. I believe the phobia of going grey stems from a fear of aging, and perhaps even ageism itself, however it’s a bit ridiculous how fearful so many of us are of seeing our hair turn grey considering just about all of us will experience … More Can grey hair be reversed?
As a woman, I can attest to the trials and tribulations that often coincide with the concept of beauty. Actually, beauty isn’t the right term. Perhaps beauty maintenance would be more fitting.

Acne and me go way back. I regret to attest to just how long acne and I have been familiar with each other, but to put it simply, I’m 26 and I still deal with pimples every. single. day. I’d love to share a guaranteed anti-acne regiment with all of you, however that would make … More Check out these at-home acne remedies that are probably already in your cupboards
I am a perfume junkie.

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?
Within the past couple of years or so, my knowledge, appreciation, and respect for cannabis has exponentially increased. I used to disassociate myself from using anything that contained cannabis because of the stigma associated with it, despite it now being legal in Canada, but after altering my close-minded perception a bit, I’ve certainly garnered a … More Have you used cannabis hair products?
I was reading a Buzzfeed article not too long ago listing some of the best beauty and hygiene products that Amazon has to offer.

If you reside in a region where the winter season brings frigid temperatures, dry and cracked skin likely isn’t a new concept.

Shampoo and conditioner are two products that just about all of us make use of.

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