Happy holidays, dear readers! Before we gear up for 2018, I thought it might be nice to take a look back at some of this year's blog highlights. (Bonus tip: If you click on any of the photos they'll take you to the original post.) Ready? Let's go!


Merry Christmas!

Wishing you and your loved ones a wonderful holiday season filled with laughter, love, and warmth! I hope you got everything you wished for from Santa and you're enjoying some well-deserved time off.

Thank you for continuing to read and support this little corner of the Internet—it means the world to me. I'll be rounding my favourite posts of the year later this week for those of you who are in the office working through the holidays. In the meantime, I'm just going to enjoy time with friends and family and just relax before gearing up for the new year. See you in 2018!


Last Minute Gift Ideas From Fresh Beauty & Rocky Mountain Soap Co.

Boxed beauty gift sets from Fresh and Rocky Mountain Soap Co.

It's now officially five days until Christmas, and no matter how organized I try to be every year I always find myself running errands in the final week. If you are one of those people with decorations in place, presents wrapped, and cookies baked who is now smugly sipping cocoa listening to Christmas music: Tell me your secrets!! Anyway, whether you've checked off everything on your list and you're rewarding yourself for a job well done, or you're still looking for a few last-minute gifts, look no further than these beautiful boxed gift sets from Fresh and Rocky Mountain Soap Company. The boxes are so lovely, in fact, you might be tempted to leave them unwrapped if you're really pressed for time!


Lazy Girl Approved: Conair Metá e Metá (Half & Half) Infiniti Pro

Lazy Girl Approved highlights long-lasting, goof-proof, fuss-free products that can fit into the most minimalist of regimens. If you consider yourself a low-maintenance beauty lover, these product reviews are for you!

Flatlay featuring Conair Metá e Metá (Half & Half) Infiniti Pro

As a bona fide Lazy Girl when it comes to hair and beauty, my T3 straightening and curling irons rarely trip the light fantastic—so why do I have both of these tools, and expensive versions at that? If only something like the new Conair Metá e Metá (Half & Half) Infiniti Pro ($139.99 on sale for $129.99 at London Drugs) had existed back when I was shopping around for hair styling appliances. This versatile two-in-one device not only cuts down on the number of hair appliances one needs, it takes the guesswork out of creating perfect waves. Oh, and it probably goes without saying that it's perfect for DIY hairstyles over the holiday season or as a gift idea. You'll want to bookmark this review!

Luminous Winter Skin With Tata Harper

Tata Harper all-natural skincare for hydrated, luminous skin in the winter time, including: Beautifying Face Oil, Illuminating Moisturizer, Illuminating Eye Creme, Hydrating Floral Essence

My medicine cabinet is looking a lot greener lately, and I'm not just talking about my efforts to go more natural with my skincare—the various Tata Harper bottles that have snuck into my winter routine have literally brightened up the shelves with their signature green-and-gold packaging! Usually I only use one or two Tata Harper products in a more eclectic regimen that also includes drugstore and department store finds. This season, however, my skin seems to be craving intensely moisturizing, all-natural skincare that will leave it hydrated, nourished, and luminous. The four Tata Harper products in this post fit the bill exactly.
