Poutine and Prada Nest Fragrances Indigo

Empty products review: Indigo – Nest Fragrances

First up in this empty products review post is a perfume, which is pretty rare for me. Perfume tends to last ages! I picked up Indigo by Nest a few years ago and I adore it. It is one of my signatures scents and reminds me of a big bowl of freshly picked raspberries. It’s slightly sweet but there are definitely green notes in it as well.

From the Sephora website:

Moroccan tea, Kashmir wood, and black cardamom are enhanced with hints of wild fig and bergamot. These notes combine to create a captivating fragrance that transitions well from day to evening.

Would I buy it again? Most definitely, in fact I already have a fresh bottle! Actually, therein lies a funny story. Mr. P&P was in Toronto last year and popped into Sephora to pick up a little treat for yours truly. He sniffed several perfumes until he stumbled upon this one. He loved it and picked up a bottle. When he gave it to me I started laughing, because of the hundreds of perfumes that Sephora carries he’d managed to pick one of my favourites that I’ve been wearing for years! That’s a man who pays attention! Read more

Nicheless: Blogger Struggles

Blogger struggles: Whitehorse blogger Poutine and Prada with her cat.

Poutine and Prada though the years

When I first started posting regularly on Poutine and Prada I talked about beauty products almost exclusively. It was where I was at at the time. I still love talking make-up and skincare but I’m nearly ten years older than I was when I started this blog. My interests have changed and so have the topics I’m interested in talking about here. With these changes come some blogger struggles. I’m having a hard time with this because my blog doesn’t fit neatly into any one category any more. I feel like Poutine and Prada is disorganized and I’ve fallen into the trap of comparing my work with that of the bloggers I admire. My photos never look as good as theirs and my content never seems to read as smoothly.

Lilah B. – A review of the Divine Lip & Cheek Duos

lilah b. review: Divine Duo lip and cheek cruelty free beauty

lilah b. first registered on my radar a year or so ago on Instagram. I saw a photo of one of the Divine Duo Lip & Cheek duos and thought that it was gorgeous. The brand came up more and more as I looked into cruelty free and clean beauty. I kept coming back to it and revisiting the products on the Sephora website. I finally took the plunge a month or so ago and ordered one of the Lip & Cheek duos for my own. The shade b. True, a gorgeous mauve, was my pick. Let’s dive in to my lilah b. review!
