Nivea Cleansers

I’ve become one of those people who love cream cleansers.  There’s nothing that emulsifies all your makeup better than a cream cleanser and that’s why I love them.  I used to hate them because they all left a residue on my skin – they’re supposed to be moisturizing – but I have a way around […]

Fragrant Friday: New Eau Contemporaine from Simons

The best thing on the shopping horizon in Calgary this year has been the opening of Simons, a hip contemporary shopping experience that melds brand names with H&M-type basics.  It’s like The Bay meets Target, and it’s not huge but different enough from other Calgary stores which makes it worth coming back to.

How I Get My Skin to Stay Matte – a new use for Neutrogena’s Acne Mask

Matte skin – it doesn’t matter whether it’s “in” or not, that’ll be the one thing that someone with oily skin (ie, ME) will always want.  Yes, glowing skin looks healthy, but it’s not cute when your makeup slides off your face, and you feel that you look messy. So I’ve discovered that Neutrogena’s Rapid […]

I’m Back!

So… long story short, it’s been weeks and weeks of computer problems that have prevented me from getting on and doing even the most basic things. My fan started making the most intense whirring noise, so loud that you could hear it on Facetime, so loud that it gave me a headache to listen to […]

It’s My Birthday and My Invites

Guess what?
