What I’ve Learned Social Distancing | Ways to Spend Time in Quarantine

FRIENDS, IT'S A WILD TIME FOR OUR WORLD. A month ago... hell a couple of weeks ago...I thought this whole Corona Virus/Covid-19 was something that would blow over. It "didn't affect me" and it felt all too safe in my little corner of the world here in Vancouver, Canada.  I was wrong. Turns out this thing is bigger than any of us ever probably expected, or at least hoped, it would ever be. The local hospital 5 minutes away has had to shut their doors to only emergencies due to outbreak, all parks, recreation and non-essential stores have close.

The Drugstore Hair Miracle Worker? L’Oreal Wonder Water

Buxom Wanderlust Primer Infused Blush

I'M A BLUSH LOVER. IT'S ALSO THE PRODUCT THAT SEEMS TO DISAPPEAR THE FASTEST ON ME. My skin just seems to eat blush, with many cult classic brands just not cutting it and leaving me blushless by noon. I mean, I just can't have that you know? I look like Mrs Potato Head without the stuff, so give me a rosy cheek that will last!  Buxom Wanderlust Primer Infused Blush is exactly what I look for in a blush; Pigmented, long-lasting, slightly luminous without being sparkly and it even prices in at under $30! I recently purchased my first and then Buxom were kind enough to send over a few more shades, and let's just say, it was love at first blush!... Read More
