I was sent the Kristen Ess products quite some time ago, but I have thoroughly tested them and tried them. While the product was supplied, the opinions noted below are 100% my own.  I recently updated my hair colour in a really big way. I don’t change my hair colour very often, but after going green a few months ago,…

I recently attended an event for Dior at Shoppers Drug Mart (the one located at Kensington Square Plaza, 6508 East Hastings Street, Burnaby) to learn about Dior skincare and beauty. Being a makeup and beauty addict, I was really excited to learn more about Dior and to experience their skincare and beauty products. The event kicked off with a super…

We all have our vices. For me, it’s pizza. Well, and fries. But today, we’re focusing on pizza. I love pizza. In fact, our group of friends typically goes for pizza every Sunday – but since I am trying to lead a healthier lifestyle, I wanted to come up with a new Sunday tradition: Pizza at our house! This healthy…

I love a good deal. I mean, who doesn’t? But seriously, when I find a product, article of clothing, hell – even a coupon for a regular grocery item – I am jazzed. Finding dupes for high-end beauty products though makes me excited on a whole other level – like a jump up, dance around in circles whilst screaming (or…

My day to day style is pretty casual. I love relaxed, easy-to-wear outfits that are comfortable. In my recent Spring Lookbook, as well as my Vacation Style Lookbook, I share my typical go-to looks – light flowy dresses, simple jeans + t-shirts, etc; but, lately, my usual casual style hasn’t fit my schedule. Instead, I’ve needed styles that balance comfort with…

Now that the sun is shining, and it’s beginning to look a lot like summer, I can’t help but feel obsessed with bronzy + glowy makeup. This kind of glam summer bronze makeup is one that I’ve been finding myself turning to a lot over the last couple of weeks, especially for more special occasions – like a date night…

Well, it looks like we’ve begun to tip-toe into summer weather, and summer style. It’s always around this time of year that I almost feel skeptical that summer is really here. I hesitate at packing up my winter clothes, boxing them away in our storage unit, and switching sweaters out for skirts, shorts, and tanks. It’s like I feel that…

Lately, I’ve been switching up my go-to hairstyle. While, in the past, I’ve often used a straightening iron to achieve soft loose curls, lately, I’ve been turning more and more to my T3 Styling Wand to create messier bedhead-style waves. I am no hair expert. While I love unique + fancy hairstyles – you likely won’t ever find me with…

While I love comfort all the time, the airport is one place that I will literally never go to dressed in anything that’s not reminiscent of pajamas. Call it lazy, call it whatever, I call it practical. The airport, to me, is a zone where comfort always takes the cake. Whether you’re hopping on a 2-hour flight or settling in for…

I had headaches constantly. My nails were brittle and wavy. My skin was painfully parched. And, my hair was thinning. I was in grade 10 (so, I believe I was 15) when I began getting terrible headaches at school. It seemed typical: you’re bored, you’re tired, you want to get out of class. But then came the extreme exhaustion. I…
