Among my friends, I am pretty much known for enjoying anything ginger flavoured. This is probably because my stomache is as soft as tofu so I am sensitive to many foods, and anything ginger will calm me down immensely. I even have a ginger candle at home, thank goodness my boyfriend is ok with it! When I was in Amsterdam, I probably spent a good chunk of money on their ginger tea alone. So when The Body Shop came out with the Ginger collection, I knew I had to try everything. [Read more…]
Is it fall yet?! I hope so, I’m excited to jump back into long sleeves again as my body constantly gets confused with summer outside but feels like winter inside the office. I’ve tried a variety of products during the summer and it’s 100% my fault I did’t individually talk about them all. Here, I have a round up of stuff that I’ve quite enjoyed during the sunny warm days; from products used for Brazilian waxes to shampoo! [Read more…]
Not tired by skincare yet right? The latest Nuxe Creme Prodigieuse Boost skincare line multi-corrects the skin by boosting it with radiance and to counteract skin that has been weathered out by stress, pollution, lack of sleep, etc. There’s nothing like going home and slapping on something nice on the face after feeling burnt out from a long day at work. I’ve been using these products for a few months now and even brought one of them with me on my Europe trip.

Part of the reason why I probably don’t have a lot of natural or organic skincare is that they’re not as often seen in big department malls. Abundance Naturally is a distributor of Australian health and beauty brands in North America, which is where you can order Kosmea online. [Read more…]
After exhausting weeks of work and a 15 day Europe trip, I’m back and can’t wait to share my Europe beauty haul! I stopped at London, Edinburgh, York, Paris, and Amsterdam and picked up some beauty products along the way. I definitely plan to do some travel related posts but I haven’t bought beauty stuff for so long, it was exciting!
Paris is where I purchased 99% of the products. Although I didn’t spend enough to get the VAT refund (~20% tax refund for being a non European local,) there were still good savings on same products that could be purchased in Canada. [Read more…]
