AND JUST LIKE THAT, THE BLACK FRIDAY SHOPPING BLITZ IS UPON US. This year, I’m urging you all to shop small. To support indie businesses and makers who’ve likely been hit the absolute hardest this year. If you missed my announcement several months ago, I created my own jewelry business, Petal & Posy, and I’m having a special discount for Black Friday through Cyber Monday that is just too good not to share!...

LET'S GET REAL FOR A MINUTE: SOMETIMES THOSE HOLIDAY SETS AREN'T REALLY A GREAT DEAL
Beauty brands are kind of notorious for downsizing, or even offering subpar quality (cough*Too Faced* cough) for their holiday launches each year. So I've sniffed out some great buys when it comes to holiday gift sets from brands I know and love and use.
These sets include full-size products, incredible values, quality products and various price ranges for everyone. ... Read More

IT'S THAT QUESTION I DREAD: "WHAT SHOULD WE HAVE FOR DINNER?"
Or, how it seems to have adapted into, "What's for dinner?" - insert eye roll emoji here.
Meal planning wasn't something I ever saw myself doing before having a toddler, and yet it's become something that massively helps me in my weekly schedule.

THERE'S A NEW TINTED MOISTURIZER ON THE BLOCK, AND IT'S GOT PEOPLE DIVIDED.

SOME RELATIONSHIPS ARE BETTER LEFT IN THE PAST.
For better or worse, we grow in life and sometimes relationships we form don't grow with us. This can go for romantic relationships as well as family and friends.
A breakup from a spouse or partner can be incredibly hard and life-altering. Often, it's for the better, and this can be the case with friendship too. There comes a time where you might recognize that a person in your life just doesn't make you happy. Perhaps they actually are quite toxic? But how do you break up with a friend and why does it seem so hard for us to do?... Read More
IF YOU'RE A LIP BALM KINDA PERSON, YOU'RE GOING TO NEED THE FENTY SLIP SHINES IN YOUR LIFE.
You all know me by now - I don't "do" heavy longwear lip colour usually. I have dry lips, and they're full of lines - the thought of crumbling, flaking lipcolour sends me in a spiral.
So I'm a balm girl. Creamy, hydrating, comfortable wear tinted balms are just my jam. Fenty's Slip Shine Sheer Shiny Lipsticks basically say it all in the name (seriously though, say that name 5 times fast!).... Read More
