Aurelia + Icarus: a review of my new favourite earrings!

Blogger Poutine and Prada wearing Aurelia + Icarus Celestial Star Hoops

Aurelia + Icarus

I was introduced to Aurelia + Icarus about a year ago when I became acquainted with the lovely blogger, Trace, who created the line. Trace is inspired by beautiful objects, cultures and styles.

Lush Christmas 2019: a review of a few of the goodies from the holiday collection

Hello!

Hello! It’s been a minute. Let me tell you why. Last year I pushed myself to produce one blog post per week no matter what. I accomplished that with one or two exceptions. The problem is that it started to feel like a chore, rather than the fun hobby I want blogging to be. As soon as something starts to feel like work I lose interest. I’ve decided to change my approach to blogging this year. This year I’m only going to write a blog post when I feel inspired and enthusiastic about it. That way I feel that I will be able to produce better content without getting overwhelmed or burned out. I do have some fun posts planned for the near future so stay tuned! In the meantime, if you are desperate for a Poutine fix, I post fairly regularly on Instagram so feel free to head over! With all of that said, welcome to my second post of 2020 – a review of some of the products from the Lush 2019 Christmas Collection (even though, dear reader, it is March)!

I may have mentioned that I have curly hair. You know, just the odd time. I’ve always hated my hair – I think most curly girls do. I eventually realized that it’s never going to be the hair I want so I decided to make the best of it and develop a fine curly hair routine. About a year and a half ago I discovered the curly girl method and decided to try it out.
