Solo Lisa Reads: June 2018

Round-up of summer 2018 book recommendations

Without meaning to, I've somehow let a whole year slide by between my last book review round-up and this one. I was still reading during that time—or rather re-reading, revisiting books I've loved since forever. But there's nothing like summer and the promise of long, warm, lazy days to make you reach for a new book, is there? Here are four I've enjoyed recently; they'd go well with a patio and a cold drink.


Product Review: Hand Chemistry Hyaluronic Body Mist

Hand Chemistry Hyaluronic Body Mist

Deciem has been on my radar for a while, but I've resisted the temptation to purchase anything because it felt wasteful to be buying more products before I'd used up the skincare I have at home. Until now, that is. The other day I was at their downtown Vancouver store with Jayne and I spotted the Hand Chemistry Hyaluronic Body Mist ($20). Here was a product unlike anything I had or had seen before, a product that fit a very specific niche and would probably be heavily used come summer! And for just $20, how could I lose? I've been testing this for a week and am very pleased with it so far. This hyaluronic body mist has proven to be the perfect marriage of formula and packaging.


Things I Bought That I Love: Chanel Boy Coin Purse

Chanel Boy coin purse in blue

When I was in my early 20s I was obsessed with Chanel as the epitome of all things luxurious, chic, and in good taste. That obsession has waned in recent years; now I have responsibilities like a mortgage and I'm trying to be a good minimalist. I'm also more inclined to spend money on fitness (oh hi, Bar Method) or a vacation with Hubs. But the Chanel love had never disappeared fully, it was just dormant, and it flared up when I bought my new blue Chanel Boy coin purse on our recent trip to Portland.


Lazy Girl Approved: Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Underpainting Colour Correcting Palette

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!

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Underpainting Colour Correcting Palette 25 for light skin

Of the Lazy Girls who wear makeup daily, many would probably list concealer among their essentials along with mascara, some sort of brow product, and tinted lip balm. Colour correctors, alas, are more of a "if we remember to pack/use them" and "more trouble than it's worth" item—until now, that is. Enter the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Underpainting Colour Correcting Palette ($53)!
