Shop Canadian Gift Guide

This is the only real gift guide I'm doing this season, I'm not really that kind of blogger, but it felt important to highlight some of the Canadian brands and companies that I love and encourage other Canadians to shop locally as well. There are a mix of small brands and big brands, with suggestions … Continue reading Shop Canadian Gift Guide

Spring 2022 Sephora Sale

It's Sephora sale time! I have always thought that there is a privilege in being able to shop sales. Being able to afford to stock up on your normal products and try out some new things with less financial risk because you got 20 or 15% off. But you still have to have spare funds … Continue reading Spring 2022 Sephora Sale

Project Pan: Powder

I've had this post scheduled for weeks, but I kept pushing it because even though replacing an essential make up product or toiletry item was in my exceptions list for my no-buy month, I was still doing a no-buy month. But if I'm going to get something that could be considered clean or low-waste beauty … Continue reading Project Pan: Powder

The most thought I’ve put into mascara ever

I bought a mascara yesterday. It took me 2 weeks to buy a mascara. I have never spent that much time thinking about a beauty product purchase in my life. It's always been what I saw in a magazine, an influencer recommended it, or I saw it in Sephora or a drug store and liked … Continue reading The most thought I’ve put into mascara ever

KonMari that Sh*t: Komono Part 2

After skincare it felt like it only made sense to go through my makeup. Also I never really organized it when I moved into my new bedroom at my parents' house and I was sick of looking at it scattered all over the place. I also washed my makeup brushes (wash your makeup brushes I … Continue reading KonMari that Sh*t: Komono Part 2
