Chanel No 5 Body Cream

Let’s not lie.  We all love a few luxury beauty products.  As much as it’s thrilling to find out that a drugstore mascara is awesome, a luxe item from the department store can feel like a good investment because you’re going to cherish using it.

8 Products I Loved in 2017

I love the New Year.  I don’t think so much about what I “accomplished” but more about the memories I made.  More than anything else, my goal last year and this year was to put 100% into home life and most of that doesn’t get documented on social media.  Instead, like a dinner you spend […]

Stila Stay All Day Foundation and Concealer

I love me some Stila products.  They actually were the first foundations I bought because they were the only ones that seemed to have shades that looked natural on my skin – they were pricy and only sold at Holt Renfrew at the time, but I kept going back for the tinted moisturizers and wore […]

DiorSkin Forever Review

Diorskin Forever Extreme Wear Flawless Makeup came out in 2007, and I’ve gone back to it for a bit because I wanted something that was more coverage and would last a long time for some holiday parties.

Fresh Sugar Face Polish

First off: this really is a polish rather than a scrub. The sugar granules in this are so fine that I found they had all melted away about 30 seconds into scrubbing. Fresh says that you can use this as a mask and leave it on your face for a little while and then scrub […]
