Favourites Friday #17

Is anyone else’s mood like

I am so glad this week is done because now I can focus on weekend projects, wearing a large amount of pajama pants, and Valentine’s Day!

Now, on the week of Valentine’s Day it is all about setting a standard. 1) Not looking like a super slob so your date doesn’t mistake you for a wall instead of their Valentine and 2) Getting healthy so you can live up to the actual date. And that’s why this week’s favourites are revolved around a natural look and a naturally healthy routine.

All of these products (and one non-product) have helped me come up with a more natural, easygoing week that is perfect for Valentine’s week because you don’t want to stress and you don’t want to work that eliptical like crazy Sunday morning. Let these favourites help you to an easier you any week.

Let’s get natural!

8 Beauty Hacks for the Lazy Girl

If there’s one thing I’m good at, it’s walking into my 8am looking like I haven’t slept in a year and haven’t stepped foot in a Sephora in my life. It’s an art, really.

But that look went out of style long ago and now the entire world is sharing tips on how to look beautiful for your 4am flight. I still believe this is myth, but after trying some hacks, I am now a firm believer in the beauty for the lazy girl – or looking beautiful for your 4am flight.

If you have early class, a ridiculously timed travel plan, or you just have no energy to get ready, these hacks will keep you beautiful and put together even if you spent less than 10 minutes preparing.

How to Focus & Get Stuff Done

Sitting in the middle of midterms week and have no motivation to do anything?

I am 100% on your level.

There’s something about crunch time that makes all motivation go out the window. No matter how much you try, finishing that project is just not going to happen. And that’s when you need your friendly neighbourhood blogger to come and show you how to gain back that focus and get everything done! Continue reading

Favourites Friday #16

Welcome to another Favourites Friday!

I’m rounding out this 2nd week of midterms with some exhaustion and a serious up in my makeup skills as I pretend to not look like a caffeine-driven zombie. I started out this week spending some time in my favourite tea shop with the boo doing some homework, continued doing even more homework and beginning essays, and ended it in full-bloom essay writing and not nearly enough green tea in my system. So, as you can tell, it’s been a real midterms week.

This week’s favourites focus on the essentials – and the rewards – of midterms week. And even though each term is different, these five favourites can be applied every term. So let’s check them out! Continue reading

12 Kind Things You Can Do Every Day

In the wake of #YoungmanOnEllen, I’ve thought a lot about how to share kindness within the world.

Senora Youngman is constantly teaching how to spread kindness and to be nice in our everyday lives. With that said, I thought a lot about how I want to share kindness to people through how I interact with others. Which led me to think about what are nice things that can help others. And I came up with a list of 12 things that I believe are super easy and spread niceness into the atmosphere.

Here’s the list!

12 Easy Ways to Spread Kindness, in Honor of Senora Youngman

1. Compliment

Tell someone you like their shirt, or that they did well on that test, or even that you admire the way they dealt with that negative compliment.

2. Go out of your way

Hold open a door. You never know when someone really needs that in their day.

3. Smile

That best way to spread kindness is to put it on your face. Smile at everyone and be a positive face in a face full of frowns.

4. Be honest

Being honest with someone is much kinder than lying. And you don’t have to be blunt, but if you’re honest with someone they will appreciate it much more.

5. Listen

Take time to listen to someone else who needs to rant/talk. The fact that you’re taking the time probably means more than they’re showing.

6. Stop judgment

Stop saying judgmental things like, “She’s a whore,” or “That top is really ugly.” That’s just spreading hate and will not be tolerated.

7. Stand strong

Even if you’re in a room full of people being negative and putting others down, continue to say nice things and push against the negative behavior.

8. Lead, don’t follow

Don’t wait until someone else says something. Be the first to say the nice thing, the first to open the door, the first to stop something bad.

9. Encourage

Encouraging people is one of the kindest things you can do, and it isn’t difficult at all. Encourage others in their actions and dreams and they will never forget you.

10. Be present

Don’t look at your phone or your nails when someone is telling you something. Focus on the conversation and show the person that you are worth it to them to put down your phone for a few minutes.

11. Follow through

Did you friend tell you something that has been upsetting them? Take a few days and then reach out to them and ask how they’re doing. Following through on your kindness is just as important as doing it.

12. Spread it constantly


Stay classy, Internet,
