Sara’s Beauty Favourites 2018

2018 was a year full of product testing for me. SO MANY FUN PRODUCTS! Actually, there are so many products I love from this last year that I could (and will) do an exclusive skincare favourites post later on. For this one, I decided to stick with products I’ve used most frequently this last year…

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…

Mom Hair (really, I don’t care…sometimes)

Everyone can probably tell I’ve really taken a backseat on the blogging train, and Sarah has done a beautiful (no pun intended) job of making sure there’s content. Love her. My beauty regimen has also taken a back seat (everything from brushing my teeth regularly to waxing the hair on my upper lip and exfoliating),…

Do I Need…? Supplements

I’ve been hearing a lot about beauty supplements. Sephora sent me several promotional e-mails and has a pop up for their site advertising them. Seems like a perfect timing. Supplements, in general, have been a big question mark for me, actually, since I stopped eating meat a couple weeks ago. I knew I would need…

Hello, Hydration!

Keeping my skin hydrated is a priority, particularly in winter. Saskatchewan winters are a dry kind of cold, the kind of cold that leaves skin chapped, dry, and prone to cracking. While dressing warmly helps, I also keep an ample supply of lotions around to keep my skin healthy, happy, and hydrated until spring. Here…

The DivaCup Chronicles

I’ve been using this magical time-of-the-month gadget (can I say that?) called a Diva Cup for a decade. It feels like a healthy long-term relationship. It’s taken me through every kind of period under the sun and has turned me off of tampons and pads forever. Yes, forever. In an effort to consciously minimize personal…

Hairiness: A Waxing Memoir (and some tips for DIY)

If you don’t already know, I’m biologically Iranian (haha, I’ve mentioned it like twelve times already, I’m sure), which means I’m hairy. Thankfully, not as hairy as some of the other biologically Iranian woman I’ve met in my lifetime. Really, I’m on the less hairy end of the spectrum. So much win. Buuuuut I’m still…
