• Where to Stay in Wadi Rum for the Best Martian Experience.

    If an epic, once-in-a-lifetime, and entirely unforgettable Martian experience is what you’re after, look no further than Wadi Rum in Jordan. This protected desert in Jordan features incredible impressive, jaw-dropping, and dramatic rock formations and sandstone mountains, carved out from thousands of years ago, entirely a natural process despite an area that is considered one of the driest in the… Read the Post

  • Mad Monkey Hostel Phnom Penh Review | Southeast Asia’s Hostel with Style.

    I get very excited when coming to a country / city with tons of good hostel options – I’m not a hostel snob by any means, I think some places do it better than others, and I’m always on the lookout to save a bit of money for street food and fun in the sun. Whilst researching for my upcoming… Read the Post

  • Boutique by Conair Jade Ceramic Hair Dryer.

    When it comes to hair tools, I often opt directly for whatever’s cheapest and fits my low-maintenance standard at Winners / TJ Maxx / Marshall’s. I rarely talk about hair tools on the blog and that’s one of the reason – I buy no-name, oftentimes unbranded hair tools that I hope would last 3-4 years before needing to be replaced.… Read the Post

  • Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse | The Face, Body and Hair Miracle Worker.

    A few years ago, dry oil was all the rage and I remembered the days every YouTuber and bloggers had a brand of high-end dry oil to show as part of their Monthly Favourites. That was actually what led me to buy the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse despite my general aversion to any types of oil as it had a great… Read the Post

  • Southeast Asia Itinerary | Thailand & Cambodia in 2 Weeks.

    I wasn’t sure about how I feel travelling to Southeast Asia – I’ve always been more of an adventure traveler and Southeast Asia just reminds me too much of the partying, and indulging in too much street food, which aren’t the worst things in the world but definitely not what I’m after in a lot of my travels. I scored… Read the Post

  • MAC Lip Scrubtious Review.

    Recently, Hudson’s Bay had a really awesome promotion where you will save $10 off $50 purchase – a very generous offer considering the normal threshold is something like $150 and you’re also still only being offered a saving of $10. I also had a $20 gift card for makeup/fragrance/skincare, and what better place to spend it at than MAC, where… Read the Post

NARS Cheyenne Eyeshadow Duo.

Unlike most people, I have a hit and miss relationship with many NARS product, so it was a big gamble for me to pick up the NARS Cheyenne Eyeshadow Duo ($39, available here, LE) which is priced at an eye-popping $39 for 0.14oz of products. Cheyenne consists of two colours: a burnt orange/gold shade, and a rich shimmery plum purple….

Givenchy Noir Couture Waterproof Mascara.

Recently, the Givenchy Noir Couture Waterproof Mascara ($35, available here) became available at Sephora in Canada. It was like the Gods of Mascara have answered my prayers for a waterproof version of my all-time favourite Noir Couture mascara which I reviewed earlier. A mascara ranks highly on my must-have, and must-wear makeup product when I leave the house. It doesn’t…

Givenchy Le Rouge Lipstick | Review.

I recently come across a red lipstick that I have fallen head over heels on, the Givenchy Le Rouge Couleur Intense in 304 Mandarine Boléro ($38, available here) from the “Les Créations” colour palette. There’s nothing that makes a woman feel more alive, sexy and sassy as a red lipstick. I spoke about getting my first red lipstick a while…

Lush Angels on Bare Skin Cleanser | Review.

The Lush Angels on Bare Skin Cleanser ($9.95, Lush Stores) is the first facial cleanser that I’ve tried from Lush. I actually forgot about this sample for a long time and I pretty much let it sit in my shelf for 3 weeks in my room, where the temperature fluctuated a lot depending on the weather in Toronto at the…

How To Sanitize Makeup!

While cleaning your makeup brushes is an oft repeated message that every girl sticks to, I rarely hear anything about taking the time to sanitize makeup. For the longest time, I did not even know that I needed to ever “clean” my makeup. My epiphany came when I realized that I wanted to apply a lipstick that I haven’t used…

Givenchy Noir Couture Mascara.

My faith in high-end mascaras is renewed with the Givenchy Noir Couture Mascara ($35, available here). I never typically purchase high-end mascaras because when doing the math, I could never justify the price per use of such mascaras. I have been using this for the last couple of months and can really attest to its effectiveness at delivering what it…
