June BoxyCharm: My Box Variation

I recently subscribed to BoxyCharm, a monthly beauty subscription box that gives you four to five full size makeup and/or skin care products a month. It's around $35 CAD per month, which is a great value considering the price of the products included.

Lush Naked Facial Oil: Banana Skin Review

When I saw that Lush came out with package-free facial oils a few months ago, I was immediately intrigued. I think Lush skin care products are under-rated, and I don't hear as many reviews about their moisturizers as I do about their bath and body products.

I memorized all of the meteorologist’s names and knew their schedules. Normal kids were watching Sponge Bob and here I am learning about the high-pressure front… Continue reading How to Tell if you’re a 20-something Grandma

How to Create a Healthy Relationship with Food

This year I started prioritizing working out and eating healthier. However, up until this month I wasn’t really taking it seriously. I would work out once or twice a week, but I would still eat anything that I wanted. I’ve always had a really negative view around the word “diet.” I don’t think it’s healthy… Continue reading How to Create a Healthy Relationship with Food
