Life update.

Hellooo! So I’ve been in the thick of it with school and balancing life. It’s all just pretty much school lately. Been I’ve been on a self love, self care, health journey too – which is pretty rad. Some days are really hard and some days it feels easy. I’ve lost about 10 pounds, and…

Review: L’Oreal Pure Clay Mask – Comforting and Unifying

I usually buy the cheap “3 for $5” masks from my drugstore, and they’re fine and fun. But I wanted to look into nicer masks that I can use a couple times a week and really see the benefits. I keep seeing commercials and advertisements for the new L’Oreal masks and finally purchased one (about…

Ultra Moisturizing Face Skin Care

I live in Canada. Our average temperature lately has been -25C (-13F) and with windchill -35C (-31F). So it’s been cold. I usually have oily prone skin but even this weather has been drying me out and leaving behind that tight, red, angry skin. So I made a little self-care, skin-care routine. I usually use…

Affordable Cleansing System Review

I have a clarisonic – it’s amazing. I then lost the charger for it and to replace that alone is $30. I was at a small drugstore with my mom when I came across the Danielle Deep Facial Cleansing System. It retails for about $30-$40 CAD depending on where you buy. This brush is great…

It’s all about you and the pamper.

So lately I have not been actively blogging (and I’m sorry) but I’ve come into some health issues and the best advice I’m finally taking is sometimes ‘it’s all about you’. So I’ve taken the last little while to focus on priority matters and focus on myself. This has come to me re-taking up yoga,…

Neutrogena Skincare Routine and Review

I don’t think I’ve mentioned my age before but I am 22 years old. The point of this being I am past the teenager acne phase.. or so I had hoped. But like many other young adults, we still get acne and sometimes often. My doctor had told me about Neutrogena and my mom always…

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water Refresh

This was $8.00. Let’s just start off by saying, as a post-secondary student the last 4 years I’ve quickly learned what is worth the money and what is not, and what is genuinely  affordable for what you get. This is. I was always hesitant on the “ok so this water is going to clean my face?”.…
