Kiss Nail Art Stickers Halloween Edition

Like many Lazy Girls out there, I lack patience and skill when it comes to nail art. I'm often too clumsy or busy to try intricate nail looks on myself, which is why nail-art-made-easy products like Kiss Nail Art Stickers are such a godsend when I want to up my #manimonday game for a special occasion like Halloween.


Drugstore Delight: EOS Berry Blossom Body Lotion

EOS Berry Blossom Body Lotion

I don't usually post pink-ified products in October for Breast Cancer Awareness month, but I couldn't resist in the case of EOS Berry Blossom Body Lotion ($9.99 on sale for $7.99 at London Drugs). Great formula? Check. Beautiful packaging? Check. Throw in a price tag under $10 and the convenience of being able to buy it almost anywhere, and you've got a true Drugstore Delight on your hands.


Product Review: Morihata Binchotan Eye Mask

Korean beauty charcoal-infused eye mask Morihata Binchotan Eye Mask, available from Peach and Lily

Charcoal is one of the biggest trends in the beauty and wellness world right now, touted as much for its skincare as its detoxifying benefits. In Asia, however, charcoal isn't just a featured ingredient in face masks and juice cleanses—it's incorporated right into textiles. (Case in point: As part of my wedding gift, my parents bought Hubs and me a new set of bamboo charcoal bedding from Asia.) So when Korean beauty purveyor Peach and Lily reached out to me and asked if I'd like to review something from their site, naturally my interest was piqued by the Morihata Binchotan Charcoal Eye Mask ($23). Would an eye mask featuring charcoal-infused fabric be superior to a regular eye mask?


Things I Bought That I Love: Gap Sherpa-Lined Utility Jacket

Things I Bought That I Love highlights the (hopefully) rare, carefully considered new purchases that spark joy in this aspiring minimalist.

Vancouver beauty, life, and style blogger Solo Lisa wears a blue sherpa-lined utility jacket with a fuzzy shearling collar, navy and white striped tee, blue skinny jeans, a gold and howlite marble necklace, red lipstick, and a vintage bag.

A casual jacket with a fuzzy sherpa or shearling collar has been on my fall shopping wishlist since August. My style has evolved in the last two years and become more informal, and during spring cleaning I got rid of a bunch of structured blazers and jackets that were suddenly feeling too tight across the shoulders—both good reasons for a new transitional topper. The other reason I've been wanting a shearling-collar jacket? Gilmore Girls.


Product Review: Saje Pocket Farmacy

Saje Pocket Pharmacy

Ever the skeptic, I was doubtful I'd be using Saje Pocket Farmacy ($59.95) that much when I received it in my Pure Barre goodie bag months ago. How could a little case of 5 roll-on aromatherapy vials treat all sorts of ailments ranging from headaches and indigestion to stress, muscle pain, and cold and flu symptoms? But fast forward 6 months and Saje Pocket Farmacy has become an indispensable part of my everyday routine. I've since had many opportunities to test each and every remedy in the zip case multiple times and I can attest they really do work.


Escape To Naramata

Naramata Bench in Okanagan wine country, British Columbia

Looking at these summery and sun-soaked photos, it's hard to believe that it's only been a few short weeks since we got married and went on our mini-moon in Naramata. The 3-night getaway proved to be the perfect transition between the excitement of our nuptials and the humdrum reality of everyday, and it was made even sweeter thanks to Ford Canada, who generously loaned us a brand new Ford Escape for the duration of the trip. All the details on our trip and our impressions of the Escape after the jump!
