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.
Another year has come and gone, in the blink of an eye as they tend to do. As we move into a new decade, I move into my 40s. It’s kind of terrifying. I don’t feel 40. I feel 16, but then I suspect that most of us don’t feel our age.
I’ve long been jealous of my US blogger friends because of their access to Poshmark. Well, it’s finally come to Canada and I am obsessed. I’ve been using the app for a few months now and I’ve added some great second hand pieces to my closet. Today I’m sharing my Poshmark shopping tips and tricks! I hope you find this post useful.
1. Follow the brands you love
Poshmark allows you to follow about 50 brands. Plug in your favourites and the app will alert you of new listings in your feed. The brands I follow include Aritzia, Sézane, and Everlane.
Kittens. I have news. I’ve mentioned it below, in a super casual way. Read on to find out what’s been tickling my pickle lately and what’s new with yours truly! If you like this kind of post, give my first one a read here!
1. Queen of de Nile
My new kitten Cleo, because hello, she’s gorgeous! Isn’t she the most delicious little creature you’ve ever seen? Mr. P&P and I are besotted. Her hobbies include digging used Q Tips out of the garbage and spreading them all over the house and splashing her drinking water all over the kitchen.
