Sibu Beauty Review

Sibu Review

I don't really watch TV, but I do watch a ton of YouTube channels. One of my favourite beauty girls to watch is Michele1218, first featured here in my "Favourite Channels" post. Michele is such a fabulous, realistic and accomplished young lady (and mom!) whose videos I watch religiously. She started talking about Sibu Beauty back in 2012, and I've had the brand on my mind ever since.

My Dollarama Must-Haves


I am a shameless sale shopper. I also love most discount stores, thrift stores, and (drumrolll pleasee) the dollar store. 'Cause who doesn't love a good deal? I admit that these stores can come with their own respective gripes, but at the end of the day, I'm always down for the hunt.

How I Take My Photos | Nikon D3200 & NIKKOR Lenses

Nikon D3200 review

Blogging for over three and a half years has been so much fun. Even though my content drifts from one topic to the next (much like my train of thought), there's always one thing that remains the same. I've grown up with my camera, and we've gotten to know each other very well. From trips across the world, to moisturizer smears and eye shadow dust, it's safe to say that we've been through a lot.

Since the summer of 2012 when this Nikon D3200 came into my life, I've learned that snapping a photo is only half the work. And no matter how hard I try to self-teach the functions of aperture, white balance, f-stop, etc., I just want my camera lenses to do the balancing act for me.

I purchased the D3200 in a kit from Blacks (RIP) and it cost about $600 for the 18-55mm zoom lens, two (corrupted) memory cards, and a few accessories. To see the full story, watch my video linked below.
