This post isn’t just for prom, either. It’s also for that dress you bought for a work holiday party–or formal night on that family cruise back in 2010–and just haven’t worn it since. Let’s be honest, here. Sequins are pretty. Maybe that’s why we find them so irresistible? (“Oooooooooooooooo sequins!!”) And maybe that’s why we think it’s such a shame to wear something so pretty … Continue reading Sequins: They’re Not Just for Prom Anymore.
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
When you live in this province, the ultimate Winter plans are typically made on the west coast, right? So, we planned a trip to the west coast. When trying to find accommodations, however, we discovered our little road trip was scheduled during the exact same time as the National Special Olympics, and everything was booked solid in Deer Lake and Corner Brook. Super bad timing … Continue reading Curing the Winter Blues
The start of a new year is always a good time to think about being healthy. (Thinking and acting, however, are two completely different things, haha). But, whenever there’s a chance to be healthy naturally, we try to take it. Back in November, Jess and I were given a chance to try Saje Wellness products for the first time–it was right around their St. John’s … Continue reading Healthy New Year + Saje
I’m not one for making Resolutions on January 1st. Have I made them in the past? Yes. Have I kept them? Hell no. Until 2015. Last year I finally did it–I finally kept a New Year’s goal for the entire 365 days. Last year, I made the decision to only buy clothing from secondhand shops. There were a few exceptions: undergarments, activewear, footwear, and Christmas … Continue reading Why I Thrifted in 2015
For those of us here in Newfoundland & Labrador, Westjet has really been on a roll lately. Especially if you live close to St. John’s. A couple years ago, the airline introduced a direct flight from St. John’s to Dublin–GENIUS. (Read our post about it here). 4.5 hours later, you’re in Ireland. Plus, they introduced the new flight at a ridiculously low price–I think we … Continue reading London Called…We Must Go
