FUN FACT: ONE OF THE FIRST POSTS I EVER WROTE WAS ON CHANEL SOLEIL TAN DE CHANEL BRONZER, AND IT'S STILL ONE OF MY MOST READ POSTS!
That post was written back in 2013, and I'm always amused to see it still getting hits (mainly because the photography is crap LOL). We all know that Chanel knows how to make a cult product though, and Soleil Tan de Chanel definitely holds that status.
In fact, the first time I remember seeing it was on the Pixiwoo YouTube channel and it was promptly sold out everywhere for ages until I could get my hands on it. These days it's much easier to find cream bronzers, but Soleil Tan de Chanel was ahead of the game. ... Read More
2020 MIGHT JUST BE KNOWN (AMONGST OTHER THINGS) AS THE YEAR EVERYONE TRIED TO BECOME A BREAD BAKER.
Some of you may have even ventured into making sourdough starters, which is something I actually did about a year ago. Since then, I've explored a few different recipes for yummy uses for my sourdough starter besides just sourdough bread (which I've also been baking like crazy).
One of my favourite recipes, and possibly one of the easiest is for these artisan sourdough crackers...... Read More

A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO, I SWORE OFF COLOURPOP.
While I loved the affordable price point, I had previously had some questionable customer service that left a sour taste in my mouth. Fast forward, and it seems like not a week goes by without a new Colourpop launch. It can be very hard not to get wrapped up in the constant, "OMG pretty need that!" FOMO feelings. The constant barrage of launches actually turned me off the brand; It has just been too much, too frequent.
Having said that, as a blogger I get asked about the brand frequently. I always believe in giving brands a second chance and it's important for me to try the brands you all are interested in seeing! So I went ahead and ordered a few things during their holiday sale back around Christmas time and considered it a clean slate.... Read More
STAYING AT HOME TO QUARANTINE DURING A PANDEMIC CAN PRESENT SOME NEW CHALLENGES AND STRUGGLES FOR YOUR SKIN.
Besides the constant hand washing and sanitizing (I've never felt so germaphobic!), there's also stress, recycled or central air to deal with. In my case, the creek next door has been dug up for construction and there is just so much dust I feel like I'm living in some old lady's attic.

Beyond my regular skincare routines, there are a few products though that have pulled their weight a little extra. Here are 5 quarantine heroes for when you're stuck inside, and your skin needs a little extra TLC.... Read More
