Where To Go In The Canadian Rockies: Banff and Jasper

Canoe on Moraine Lake

Last summer, Joseph and I ventured to Canada’s west coast on a quest to hike and drive through the Rocky Mountains. I wanted to share some highlights, tips and a brief itinerary of our trip to serve as inspiration for your next trip to that neck of the woods.

SUNCOAT Water-Based Nail Polish | Review & Swatches

SUNCOAT Water-Based Nail Polish

Have you ever been totally freaked out by the ingredients in standard nail polish? As someone who polishes their nails at home on the regular (once every week or two) I make sure to wear an air filtering mask and to keep the fan on so that I breathe in less of the fumes. If you want to get rid of toxic nail polish in general, Suncoat is the brand for you.

REVIEW: PIXI Mesmerizing Mineral Palette in Plum Quartz

PIXI Mesmerizing Mineral Palette Plum Quartz

There is nothing I wouldn't wish more on to my worst enemy than going to the drugstore, uninformed, and having to buy a full face of makeup. 

Ok, that's a slight exaggeration. But since some drugstore prices are creeping up into the high-end range (I'm looking at you, $28 foundation and $19 eyeliner!) I try to NEVER buy anything without looking up reviews or scavenging the store for a tester. Because once I bought a Rimmel lip liner that looks like complete shite and I regret that $6 even to this day.

So when my friend Alanna gifted me this beautiful Pixi Mesmerizing Mineral Palette in Plum Quartz at her Bachelorette party in Florida a few months ago, I didn't know what to expect. I hadn't tried many Pixi eye products aside from the ones here so I was intrigued, and decided to dive right in!

STILA, KORRES & CLEAN | Summer 2019 New Products

STILA, KORRES & CLEAN | Summer 2019 New Products

I was thinking the other day about how tremendous the world of beauty and skincare has become. About 10 years ago, it was hard to find non-mainstream-brands. Even "Natural" products were exclusively sold at farmers markets and The Big Carrot, and everyone's mom was either an Olay, Clinique or Lancome lady. Nowadays, those staple brands sometimes fall to the wasteside (despite them still being great!)


So today I wanted to share a few new things from iconic brands Stila, Korres and Clean that have been released for Spring/Summer 2019. Read on to hear about my faves.
