Which Amazon Beauty Product Am I Currently Obsessed With?

Image
Amazon has become one of the most popular websites for shopping in Canada. It is my go-to site for finding great deals on everyday essentials, but I often over looked them as a source for beauty and skincare products. Who doesn't love finding a skincare deal so good it's basically a steal? That is exactly how I felt about Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay the first time I ordered some from Amazon. It was advertised as a deep pore cleanser and knowing it was an all-natural beauty product, made me even more tempted to try it out.

My Snow Day Essentials

Cold days are definitely towards the bottom on the list of things I enjoy. I could sit here and list things I dislike about winter for hours, but have decided to focus on something positive instead. The beloved snow day. That day when the blizzard strikes with such hard force, your entire commuity has no choice but to shut down.

10 Foods You Should Be Eating To Banish Dry Skin

Image
The best advice I have ever been given for dealing with dry skin is to treat it from the inside. This means keeping myself hydrated and eating a diet with plenty of antioxidants and healthy fats. I don't know about you, but eating and drinking my way to glowing skin sounds like the ideal way to go!

Winter Skin Care Tips For Dry Skin

Image
I have to admit it, I kind of like winter. Tea tastes better, fireplaces are oh so cozy, and surprise snow days give me a break from the office. The thing I hate about winter is what it does to my skin. I have dry skin, and this time of year can be a complete nightmare if I don't treat it right.

Shake Up Your Eyeshadow Routine With Coastal Scents

Your eyes are usually the first thing a person notices when they meet you. Some would say they are the window to your soul. As far as my makeup routine goes, my eyes are the area in which I allow myself the most room to play around and experiment with colour. Normally I prefer neutral shades such as tans/gold or pale pinks/peaches for my everyday eyeshadow looks. Every once in a while I like to throw in some brighter and bolder colours. Even though these bold colours can be a lot of fun to play around with, if they aren't used correctly my end results can look a little clownish.

6 Simple Tricks To Make Your Home Smell Amazing

I can make a pretty safe bet that if you are no longer a rebellious teenager living with your parents than you probably have no desire to sit around a messy room. Even though I am not always the tidiest person, I still strive to keep my home in a liveable condition. I also love to have scented candles and sprays to keep my house smelling good at all times. The only trouble with those is that they can be costly and contain chemicals that can be harsh for some people's lungs.

According to Statista the average Canadian works 35-40 hours per week. On top of that a lot of people have some sort of side hustle going on to make ends meet, a family to take care of, or even extra classes in the evening.  Any of these situations could be yours and you may not have the time to keep the house as organized as you want.

The No Makeup Challenge

One night, a few weeks ago, I stayed up way past my bedtime binge-watching The Good Place (Netflix, if you see this we're ready for 3rd season already!). Needless to say, the next morning I was not ready to wake up when my alarm went off. Late nights have never treated me well, I feel out of sorts the next day if I don't get an adequate amount of sleep. Some people are able to get by on 4 hours of sleep and function at a normal pace. I am most definitely not one of those people.

Every morning when I wake up, before I start getting ready I have a cup of coffee and check my phone to catch up on current events. That's my pre-morning preparation break and it's mandatory if you expect me to function at work for the day. 

Elusive Darlings: My First Channillo Series

As an avid reader I have grown to love the idea of ebooks. A few years ago that was something I never thought I would say. It is hard to beat the feeling of being the first one to crack open the pages of a new book. Oh, and that smell. Don't get me started on how amazing the smell of new books are.

I live in a community on the outskirts of a really small town surrounded by other small towns. If I want a specific book I either have to travel about an hour or order it online and wait. One of the perks about ebooks is that I can start reading as soon as I order the book.

My impatience isn't my main reason for loving ebooks though. The websites that sell ebooks are giving independent writers who can not afford to publish their work in hard copies a chance to publish their work online and sell it at a fair price. There are actually a lot more book options in the world of ebooks as well.
