Outfit on a Budget: Shop the Sale - Winter 2018

Shopping for an outfit under a certain budget can be a challenge. As someone who loves some retail therapy, topping it with a sale makes everyone and everything happier; the shopper, the business, and the wallet!

As the winter sale season is in full swing, I have browsed around a couple of my favourite shops, picked out a few sale pieces and created a complete head-to-toe outfit from each shop for under $200 (in Canadian dollars, before tax). Let me know what you think - What is your favourite outfit or piece from this post? Are you someone who loves to shop the sales section? And are you interested in seeing more of these types of post?

Nightly Skin Care Routine

Updated Nightly Skin Care Routine featuring products from Lipidol, Glossier, The Ordinary, Drunk Elephant, Bleu Lavande and many more!

It has been a while since my last skincare routine post. From the products being used to my skin type, a lot has changed. Although my last skincare worked at the time, introducing my skin to new and unfamiliar products caused my skin to have a few episodes of breakouts and reactions throughout the last few years.

Through research and experiments, I managed to find a skin care routine that works with my current skin. My skin type is now normal-to-combination with concerns of acne and redness. That being said, my concern for acne and redness have slowly gone away and I am at a place where I am satisfied with how my skin looks and feels. 

Hello, 2018!

this will be a good year

It's safe to say this past year wasn't easy. There were challenges, adventures, discoveries, lessons learned. I faced my fears and took risks, new skills and opportunities were found, dilemmas that lead to a lot of "what ifs", and well-needed constructive criticism. 

This year, I'm taking what I learned and making improvements to better myself, to not be hard on myself, to always look on the positive side. It's no easy feat but it's a task I'm ready to face. 

Wishing everyone a year filled with happiness, goals and aspiration. Cheers to a New Year - Happy 2018!
