Jana here. Yes, Jess is in this post, too. We just have very different levels of obsession when it comes to Nanaimo Bars. I would choose them as part of my last meal on Earth, and Jess most definitely would not. They’re on my list of “Top 5 Favourite Foods”. Foods in general, not just Desserts. They’re right up there with Burgers and Falafel for … Continue reading Dessert Diaries: Nanaimo Bars
When you think of classic ice cream flavours, which come to mind? Chocolate? Vanilla? What about Strawberry? So where does this put Neapolitan? It’s the delicious combination of all three. Does that make it the most classic ice cream of them all in Cone Kingdom? And have you noticed not all Neapolitans are identical? When we were little, the three flavours were all swirled together … Continue reading Dessert Diaries: Neapolitan
I have a love/hate relationship with Michaels. Sometimes I can’t even go in there with Jana, lol. Even if I don’t have anything on my shopping list, I always come out with a bag full of purchases. It’s an easy place to get inspired. About a month ago, I spotted these gold floral doilies. I immediately knew I needed the pattern on my face somehow. … Continue reading Floral Highlight
For the past four years, we’ve spent many a day decorating cakes, cupcakes, and cookies. We’ve designed and decorated some pretty intricate-looking treats. Despite this, we were nowhere near prepared for how beautiful traditional henna is. Last month, we had the chance to meet the lovely Parinita and try henna for the first time. Rather than attempt an explanation to those of you unfamiliar with … Continue reading Local Love for Henna Body Art
As a hairdresser, you would think I’d listen to my own advice: don’t bleach it too much, use treatments between each lightening process, use thermal protectant, don’t use super hot water, etc… Unfortunately, I’m stubborn and didn’t listen. As a result, my hair is fried to shit. (Okay, it’s not THAT bad…but it’s bad.) Let’s go back to last year this time when I had beautiful, healthy … Continue reading How Powder Room D Wigs are Saving my Hair
We wanted to title this post “Putting Newfoundland Berries on Yer Face Feels Amazing”, but we didn’t want to give the wrong impression. Natural beauty products are brilliant anyways-but when they’re made locally from local ingredients?! YES, PLEASE. Needless to say, we were pumped to try products from NL’s own Indigena Skincare. A quick browse through the brand’s online site reveals lots of good stuff: … Continue reading Local Love for Indigena Skincare
If you know me at all, you know that blue is the color on my lips 50% of the time. That leaves 10% for greens, 10% for grays, 10% for purples and 20% for the rest. If you don’t know me, Hi! I’m Jess! And I actually have a blue lipstick addiction. I don’t remember the very first time I wore a blue lipstick, but I … Continue reading Top 10 Blue Lipsticks
If you know anything about Jess’ men-of-the-music-industry preferences, you probably know how much she loves Harry Styles. In a close second, though, is Matty Healy–the lead singer of The 1975. (Truth be told, she would take their album over One Direction’s–don’t tell Harry, b’ys.) And, since imitation is the highest form of flattery–she turned herself into Matty for an afternoon. I still get taken aback … Continue reading #10daysofhalloween: The 1975’s Matty Healy
Sometimes you just need to shut up and let your shirt do the talking, right? I feel like there’s a gap in the fashion industry for a shirt that says “No, I won’t share my fries with you”, or maybe an “I just farted” tank top. Although they probably already exist–because eventually they’re going to run out of witty sayings. Not that telling someone you … Continue reading We love Jac Vanek. Mom–not so much.
So this one wasn’t really planned like this either. I did a really good job at sticking to my list of 10 costumes, clearly. haha. So we had originally planned to go as Pikachu and Ash to our friend’s Halloween Party, but after a weekend filled with cupcakes and weddings, we couldn’t keep our eyes open long enough to make it to her party 😦 … Continue reading #10daysofhalloween: Pikachu!
