Natural Cold & Flu Remedies

at

Ah, Autumn. The leaves are changing colours, the air is crisp, and there are Kleenex’s strewn all about my room. The one and only thing I absolutely despise about the change in weather is the fact that my immune system doesn’t seem to want to cooperate with me. Soon the sniffles begin, accompanied with the scratchy throat and that “foggy” feeling that swirls around your head making it nearly impossible to think straight.That’s right. I have a cold.I’m not one of those “oh I don’t want to take medication because it’s not…

VOTE!

at

Today in Canada, citizens are casting their votes to elect a new leader. Prime Minister Harper, or the Dark Lord, as we like to call him, has proven to not be very good for our economy. It’s time for a change. Today, I helped the effort to make a change. At 11:30 this morning, I cast my vote.I’m not a very political person per say, but there are things that Harper has been the ringleader of that I certainly don’t agree with. This entry isn’t going to be me telling you who to vote…

MaskCara’s IIID Foundation

at

A few weeks ago, while I was putting off being and adult and not finishing a to-do list, I decided to purchase a product that I thought would kick up my makeup game. Normally, I’m a huge fan of a neutral eye and a bright, bold red lip. Lately, however, I’ve been dabbling in the idea of “less is more”, at least when it comes to makeup. Sometimes, in order to appear like you’re wearing less, you need to put in a little bit more effort.That’s where this palette comes in. I wrote about…

Hair Makeover!

at

My hairdresser is amazing.I have been getting so bored with my look lately. I don’t like to change my up makeup too much; that requires more effort than it should. And plastic surgery is way too expensive. That last comment was a joke.So obviously, the next best thing was to do something different with my hair. I hadn’t dyed my hair in years – seriously, years. It’s been virgin hair for a while now, and I wasn’t super keen on getting a crazy new haircut. But, I did need a haircut, so I figured that…

Kickin’ it Old School

at

I am completely and utterly a 90’s girl. Barbie dolls, Lip Smackers lip gloss, stick on earrings, scrunchies.. you name it, I probably loved it. I remember playing with Legos, Pogs, and collecting Beanie Babies (I really thought I’d be rich by now, with all of the Beanies I’ve collected. I’m definitely not.). Listening to Aqua, The Spice Girls, Backstreet Boys and NSync, and watching Power Rangers and Full House. I always had a Goosebumps book close by, and tons of taped episodes of the TV show, too.While browsing Netflix on Saturday, I stumbled upon…

Fall Fashion on a Budget

at

Ah, fall fashion. One of my favourite things about this season.I’ve always been a fan of scarves, and boots, and sweaters; browns, greys, and deep, rich colours. And let’s not forget about layers!As the weather gets colder, I find myself scrambling through all of my old sweaters and long sleeved shirts trying to find something that’s in style, that I still like, and something that I don’t look at and think “what in God’s name was I thinking when I bought this?”. I’m always disappointed with my collection, though. Does anyone else…
