A Personal History of Dry Shampoo – The Sequel!

A while ago, I made a post detailing my misadventures with dry shampoo. I’m going into this with a few disadvantages, all of which I’ve outlined before, but to sum up: 1) I’ve washed my hair daily for years now, so the oil production is pretty out of control; 2) I have fine hair, which…

Sara’s September Challenge Diary Part 2/3

Day 11-15 – Nothing to report except that I’ve finally been feeling like my old self again! Still, some progress to go, but slowly catching up on sleep since the baby IS FINALLY SLEEPING THROUGH THE NIGHT! We’re talking 8+ hours of uninterrupted sleep ❤ this is definitely helping my skin, haha. Days 16-21 –…

Sara’s September Challenge: A Diary of the First 1/3

Day 1, September 2 – Did a half-assed face washing and moisturizing plus sunscreening to go out. Mascara and Bite’s Dirty Chai lipgloss for make-up. Kept forgetting I had mascara on and smudged it (gah). Took 10 minutes to put on a face mask before going to bed. My skin is happy. Day 2, September…

Carving out time for my face: September Challenge

It’s the Product, not the Discount

I’ve been a record number of Winners in the past few weeks on various shopping excursions, and every time, I’m stunned at how many products from high-end brands I’m finding in their make-up section. Used to be that Winners shelves were stocked with primarily drugstore brands, but now, I’m finding shelves of Marc Jakobs lipsticks,…

Assertiveness Training

My assertiveness is largely dependent on my surroundings…and what I’m saying. It’s easy for me to speak about certain topics rather than others. Among the topics I’m not particularly strong at is negotiation. I don’t like the thought of twisting another person’s point of view even if it might be beneficial. I can be persuasive,…

Things I’ve Learned: Travel Edition

It’s a surprised Saturday post! I couldn’t name this entry Travel Hacks. I can’t fathom anything I do constituting a hack. My life is more about balance than minimalism, a middle path rather than indulgence. So no, no hacks, though I do know how to pack a carry-on that blazes through airport security. And I’m…
