Four Rose Scented Natural Beauty Products

“Roses are red, violets are blue, wine is cheaper than dinner for two”

Roses are without a doubt a universally beloved scent. There is just something so classic & timeless, yet alluring, about roses that makes me want to literally smother them all over my entire body at all times. Like if I could fully immerse myself in rose-infused bath water, I would probably be more inclined to cleanse myself on more of a regular basis. A sentiment I can only assume Andrei would be very much on board with as well. NOW considering that Valentine’s Day is little more than one week away, I thought that I would share a few of my favourite, natural rose scented products with all of you today! Because who doesn’t want to smell like roses on Valentine’s Day?! Spoiler Alert: The answer is nobody.  (more…)


5 Winter Skincare Tips

“I’m sorry for the things I said when it was winter”

Pinterest

Bomb cyclones & polar vortex’s getting you down? SAMESIES! I’m the first to admit that I love me some cold winters – heck, we’re even getting married in the winter – but I think it’s safe to say that this particular winter season has been a bit of a doozy in terms of freakishly low temperatures. Like seriously freakish. THIS kind of winter possesses the very real potential to wreak unprecedented havoc on our skin of the likes we have never seen before, & lets be real… a chapped face & crusty hands, a la the Night King, is most definitely not a cute look on anyone. So lets go over some basic winter skincare practices shall we? (more…)


What You NEED To Put In An Adult Easter Basket

“Easter Egg Hunts: Proof Your Child CAN Find Things When They Really Want To”

Some Ecards

Easter weekend is HERE, & for me it’s one of those holidays that tends to bring the nostalgia factor back in a major way – lying somewhere on the scale between baking cookies for Santa & carving pumpkins on Halloween. Now while it may seem as though children are the core participants intended for that ever so infamous Egg Hunt/Basket extravaganza on Sunday, I’m here to argue otherwise. I mean kids can’t hog ALL the fun ALL the time… SO I’ve been doing a little “hunting” myself & have curated what I believe to be the most perfect adult Easter Basket! Enjoy!  (more…)

“Just wanted to thank you in advance for the flowers I’m going to send to myself, & pretend are from you”

“your ecards”

Well HELLO there my frantic little, last-minute lovebirds! We’re cutting it real close this year, aren’t we?! Honestly not to fret, I’m sitting here typing this post on my high & mighty horse, but in reality I have yet to even THINK about what I’d like to get Andrei this year for Valentine’s Day – which I promise, STILL qualifies me in the whole “gift guide” writing department because I totally have lots of ideas for the ladies out there! So men, if there are any men that happen to read my blogs, please take note. 😉 Side Note: Also, ladies you can take note too because these are PERFECT gifts to give to your BFF’s for Galentines Day, or seriously just pamper yourselves & grab a few trinkets, because snaps for self-love right?  (more…)


2017 Beauty & Makeup Trends

“Makeup is only meant to enhance beauty. Not cover it”

CoolNSmart

Look… I get it. I know that we’re all supposed to adhere to the whole morally responsible, “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” or “beauty is subjective” millennial belief system. But to be completely honest here, sometimes a gal just needs a good ol’ fashioned, generic beauty guide of somewhat socially acceptable makeup trends to get her through the day. Am I right?! Because I sure as heck know that my grade ten, “frosted gloss and metallic, eye-shadow obsessed self” would have thoroughly appreciated some form of guidance in regards to what was, so called, “in” during the times. Side Note: It seriously pains me to look back at these photos because there was, and never will be, anything remotely “okay” with a jet black raccoon eye & pink frosted gloss combination. Le sigh.
