This week has been one of the best weeks in forever. Actually, it might have been one of the best of 2017. It renewed my faith in good things and made me a little less cynical. My therapist would be very proud.
While the last few weeks have been me stressing over finding a new apartment, I am very happy to announce I found a new apartment this week. I’ve been scrambling to find a roommate/affordable apartment, and by the hand of God I found a place on Tuesday that was pretty near perfect.
With faith, anything is possible.
Other fantastic things happened as well (went on a great date, it rained, my skin cleared up) but finding an apartment was truly a godsend as I feel all of that stress fade away. My parents used to have a saying in their bathroom that said, “When you worry, God laughs.” And God has been laughing like a loon at me.
I am so grateful for all the good that I’ve experienced this week, and look forward spending my weekend giving some of it back.Read More
As a fair-skinned woman who looks like a ghost when I wake up after my zzz’s, blush is my best friend.
Over the years I have tried many different blushes and found ones I love for colour, texture, and wearability. It is only when I really love a blush that I buy it again. Below are the blushes that have made it into my makeup bag again and again.Read More
While I love trying out new products and using about every sample the store gives away, there are some tried and true products that will always be in my routine.
Today I’ve compiled a list of the products that have been staples in my beauty routine for years now. Some of them are more recent than others, but every single one is something that I think is necessary for me to look (and feel) my best. These products have gotten me through the rough times (Hello, finals week with my period) and have made sure I’m primped in the good moments. Everything in this list is perfection, so why not share?
Hopefully you will try some of these and they will make it into your routine just like they did mine!Read More
My birthday is one of my favourites days of the year (isn’t it everybody’s?) because I like to spend my birthday with friends and family creating beautiful memories. And this year was no different!
Because I can now legally purchase alcohol (and yes, I now have the art of pulling out my ID gracefully) this week has just been very different, and very fun, compared to past. Not to say alcohol is the most fun thing ever, but it opens you up to some things you weren’t able to do before.
On Monday (my actual birthday) my mom drove down to take me to dinner, where she bought me my first drink. We had a great conversation over delicious food (and free dessert). When I arrived home my roommates had made me cupcakes to celebrate me finally joining their 21-year-old ranks. We ate chocolate cupcakes and chocolate bread (brownie mix and cookie dough) with some prosecco and just laughed and chatted, which is really the best thing to get out of any birthday.
Thank you to anyone who wished me a happy birthday and I hope you’ll enjoy this week’s favourites which have a certain 21st birthday feel.
