Admittedly, I’m not the most adventurous when it comes to eye makeup looks. I’ve always found it difficult to work with my monolids and to be frank, my lids (just like the rest of my T-zone) which are also on the oilier side causing eye shadows to slip and rub off. But I must say, over the last several years, I’ve had the opportunity to sample so many great makeup products and this has certainly encouraged me to step outside of my comfort zone (one baby step at a time with neutral and matte tones for the eyes).
I always manage to catch a flu or cold at the tail end of the year and it takes me a solid couple of weeks to recover. It’s honestly dreadful and I’m so glad I’ve finally bounced back! Catching a cold or flu during the winter months is inevitable and while you take the time to mend your health on the inside, what about recovering on the outside?

I love Sundays.
Though it’s only one day away from the start of another work week, I make effort to reserve Sundays for self-care. I rarely have free time during the week, therefore Sundays are perfect for yoga, delicious healthy meals, therapeutic hobbies, and pampering time for my skin and body!
Imagine transporting yourself back to the imitating days of high school, what were you most self-conscious about?
I mean, we all have little imperfections, right? But during your teenage years, as you’re starting to ‘grow’ into your own body and hormone levels are sky rocket high, those tiny imperfections seem to amplify. And at times, even the girls who are most confident can find themselves vulnerable. In my case, growing up, I was embarrassed by the layer of peach fuzz that covered my upper arms and back. I mean now that I think back, it wasn’t even that bad! But for years, I refused to wear anything sleeveless or backless. I was afraid to be mocked.
I’m so excited to be teaming up with AVEENO® over the next few months to recommend an array of my favourite products and their newest launches, so be sure to continue to follow along!
Despite my love for Summer, Fall fashion is the most desirable compared to the other seasons. The colours are warm, rich, and unexpected. Fall colours may seem too dramatic or dull to some, but I personally find it luxurious, warm and inviting. The best part is that they pair so well as I transition from my sun-kissed olive tanned complexion.
Have you heard of double cleansing before?
Up until a few months ago, I really had no clue about the benefits and power of double cleansing. I was under the impression that I had a pretty good thing going when it came to washing my face.
Worrying about wrinkles, loss of volume and skin elasticity used to feel lights years away. But did you know beginning in your mid-twenties, your skin starts to loose that bouncy, plumpy feeling and once you hit the bit 3-0, aging skin concerns continue to progress, rapidly.
