Menchies My Way Summer VIP Giveaway!

  Seriously, I don’t think I’ve seen a hotter summer in Calgary, and that means that I’ve never eaten more frozen treats. Not only have I been whipping up my own ice cream when there’s time, but I’ve also been indulging in frozen yogurt – it’s a nice little outing for me and my family, […]

Bad (and Confusing) News from Sephora

So the latest is that Sephora will now be opening a warehouse in Canada so that they can ship products from here.  Theoretically this is good: it means that if you order something online, you should be getting it quicker and it means that there’s less impact on the environment as well. However, Sephora is […]
