A Glossier haul was in order.

My first introduction to Glossier was last summer during my internship. I went home with an adorable container of Wowder and the rest, as they say, is history. I’m pretty late to the game considering Glossier launched in 2014 but the cult-favourite beauty brand recently launched shipping to Canada so it all works out. I went to the pop up shop in Toronto in the fall and stocked up on a few covetable products. This time around I wanted to try a few more.


I was surprised by how quickly I fell in love with Glossier’s Balm DotCom. It’s a multipurpose moisturizer and I carry it with me everywhere now. I can use it anywhere on my body but I usually stick to my lips and hands. It’s the perfect size because it fits in the tiniest of clutches. All to say, I will definitely be repurchasing.


The Phase One Set was at the top of my list, mostly because it included the priming moisturizer I’m currently obsessed with. I’m excited to try out Jelly Cleanser and will report back with how my skin is handling it. I’m pretty sure it’ll be another fave.



One of Glossier’s hero products is Boy Brow. I finally got my hands on it and I can definitely see why it’s an instant favourite. The brush is tiny which allows more control and dispenses the perfect amount of product to groom and fill brows. I’m pretty big on brows right now (isn’t everyone?) so it’s nice to know I only need a couple products to tame them. I use Boy Brow in Black to set my brows after I’ve brush them out and shaped them with either Total Temptation Brow Definer or mascara (and yes, I use mascara on my brows sometimes). I just love how Boy Brow separates and defines all my brow hairs. I get these beautiful, feathery model brows and I love it.


I’ve been a long-time fan of Glossier’s lip-gloss, which brings be back to the 90s. Like many girls my age, I transitioned from Lip Smackers (although they also had lip-gloss at one point) to a “glossier” lip product. Sometimes I’d purchase the scented roll-on lip-gloss from the dollar store. Other times I would just use Vaseline. Now, as an adult, I can splurge on a cuter and more superior product. I buy Glossier’s Lip Gloss in multiples because I literally can’t stop using them.


The last thing I’m super excited about is the Glossier You Solid perfume. I have to admit that I wasn’t a fan of the actual fragrance when it first dropped last fall. But there’s something about the solid perfume that I’m actually okay with. Maybe I got used to it? Either way, it’s the perfect travel size and I’m living for it.


Thanks for reading.

My weekend wear standards just got higher.

Getting dressed on the weekends should be the easiest thing in the world. Instead of picking an outfit for work, I’m free to wear literally anything I want. Normally I’d opt for some combination of leggings and running shoes but lately I’ve been more selective about my weekend wardrobe. So here I am, on a weekend wearing a turtleneck tucked into a pair of boyfriend jeans with an obnoxious white puffer jacket.

Check out my photos below. Outfit details are at the bottom.




My quarter-life crisis is pending.

In all seriousness, turning 25 feels like a really important to me for some reason. I don’t know if it’s just me who’s placed such a huge emphasis on the being 25 or if this is generally a big deal. You tell me. Age aside, I love to go all out for my birthday. I’m one of those March Break babies who basically celebrate for that entire week and then some.

Wish lists are kind of my favourite thing to do because it makes me think of stuff I really want rather than just asking for things blindly. A few of these things have been waiting in my shopping carts across various websites while a few I’ve just been talking about non-stop. So obviously they’d make the perfect present for moi.

Check them out below!

Toronto is lit.

One reason I absolutely love living in Toronto is that you’ll never be bored. There’s always something cool or new happening in the city if you look for it. Finding something fun to do when it’s wintertime in the city is bit harder but Distillery District is always a safe bet. It just happens to be one of my favourite places to visit in the city (if you couldn’t tell already) and it’s currently hosting a Light Fest, a mix of lights, music, and art. I went on one of those abnormally warm evenings in February and it was actually really fun. There were a lot of love-themed installations (because Valentine’s Day) but a few of my favourite shops were open as well. Check out the photos below.



I’m an eighties lady—for the moment.

Just to be clear, I’m a hardcore 90s baby but I’ve been channelling the 80s lately. I’m blaming it on my new boombox purse and maybe a little bit on my Converse. Both were recent purchases and I thought they’d look amazing together. I was right. I’ve always been drawn to over-the-top-bordering-on-obnoxious accessories so when I saw this fabulous, boxy purse at Aldo I had to get it. I was getting major Kate Spade vibes, who’s known for selling some odd but also adorable handbags. A boombox, in comparison, is pretty tame if you ask me.

The Chuck Taylors were just a necessary purchase mostly driven by peer pressure. My sisters have some sort of low-cut-white-converse cult going on right now and apparently I’ve been drafted. I’m about it though. My only concern is keeping them so pristinely white, which is one of the rules in our sporty-chic sisterhood. I’m open to receiving tips and testimonials.

I could mention the fact that I’m wearing—and have been wearing—skirts in Toronto as of late despite the fact that it’s the dead of winter in Canada right now. I’m definitely not complaining and hope it continues until my birthday in March when we can just cancel winter altogether. Also, I’ve been living in the most comfortable turtleneck sweater of life. It was an impulse purchase at H&M and I have no regrets. Well, maybe one. I wish I’d found it in another colour because they’re that cozy.

Check out the photos below and as always outfit details are at the bottom.
