Why I Do Not Support Urban Decay Cosmetics

I remember when I first started getting into makeup. There weren’t nearly as many options, but this is one of the reasons that Urban Decay really shone. They were the go-to brand for eyeshadow primer as well as bright and colourful, high-quality shadows. At the time, I never thought too much about the way they …

Rice Cooker (Not)Chipotle Cilantro-Lime Rice

Recently I have been obsessed with Chipotle. I could literally eat it every day.  Unfortunately, this is not only expensive, but the portion sizes are much more than I need and I wind up overeating without even thinking about it.

Drinking Too Much Water?!

You know this. Water is so important, for so many reasons. But are you drinking enough? Or are you drinking too much? While you can drink as much as you want, within reason, of course, the idea that every person needs eight glasses a day is not accurate and if you are stressing yourself over …

14 Week Pregnancy Update

14 weeks pregnant. This has been another really tough week. Not really pregnancy-wise but just in general. I have been so miserable and sick for almost two weeks now, and I keep thinking that I’m getting better, only to have another setback. I’m getting by, but I really, really can’t wait to be feeling decent …

dear Klairs Mochi BB Cushion Review

A while back I made a purchase from Wishtrend to try out some new skincare. I am pleased to say that I have loved literally everything I purchased. While I made the order specifically for the skin care, I couldn’t not pick up a new cushion foundation. While I’m still loving my banila co and Clio cushions, …
