My Everyday Summer Face

When it comes to makeup I fall into two categories:

  1. Wanting all the makeup in the world
  2. Wearing the same makeup everyday

Those categories don’t exactly work well together, hence why my main makeup purchases are usually lipstick. Not ashamed to say that I generally have at least 5 in my bag at one time.

This is my usual set up every morning, too lazy to actually stand up and do makeup in the bathroom.

Navigating Food Trends

It seems like every week there is a new food item that has made it onto the chopping block. Starting with gluten all the way to dairy products we are told that these things are bad for our bodies, it’s not like we haven’t eaten them for hundreds of years.

Of course it’s always good to keep up to date with new scientific discoveries about foods we eat and whether or not they are good for our bodies, the issue comes when the information isn’t coming from scientific research. At this point one has to take a careful look at the claims about the food and see whether or not they apply. For example with gluten, 1% of the American population has Celiac disease (requiring the removal of gluten from their diets) and approximately 6% have a gluten sensitivity condition. This then does not nearly cover the 30% of shoppers who purposely buy gluten free options.  Continue reading “Navigating Food Trends”

Feeling Lost.

As someone halfway through my university career, it’s almost cliche of me to say I’m scared as shit of the real world.

Going in to university I had my mind set on what I was going to do. I would study marketing, do fashion internships and eventually find my place in the fashion business market. What I and probably most people figure out at around this point, is that you never really know what you want. I had this idealized view of fashion and was set on the being my life, but now while I still find that interesting I wonder if it’s the only path. Continue reading “Feeling Lost.”

Stila: Eyes Are the Window Eyeshadow Palette Reveiw


I have had this palette for a while now and have worn it pretty much everyday since I got it. This palette is not new by any means, but deserves a lot more hype than it has got. It  also comes in different shades (similar idea to the Naked palettes). There is a neutral mattes palette (Mind), a bright coloured palette (Body), an orange tone palette (Spirit) and this one which is a purple toned palette.

This palette retails for $59.00 CAD at Sephora, which although is pricey is similar to other high end palettes prices.

Fashion Inspiration Blogs

For anyone remotely interested in fashion, they have a place they look for inspiration. For some it’s looking directly to designers and what they are showing, to others it’s magazines, and for me (and many other people) it is fashion blogs.

I have a few blogs that I will regularly check to see what the bloggers are wearing, how they handle current trends, and learn how I can emulate the looks when I am in a funk.
