My little bottle of miracle oil

Ok y’all, I am a curly haired lass. That means that I hate my hair, and I always have. I have never wanted anything more than I want long, swishy, straight hair. Alas, it is not meant to be. I’ve recently (within the last two or three years) started coming to terms with the fact that I’m never going to wake up and have straight hair. That means that I have started trying to work with my hair rather than attempting to beat it into straight submission. For the first time in my life I have a really fantastic (read “expensive”) hair cut, and it makes a huge difference. The other thing that makes a difference is product. I’ve tried all kinds, high end, as well as drug store buys. Some of my favourites include Potion 9 by Sebastian, an AG leave-in conditioner, and Morrocan Oil.

Caudalie Beauty Elixir: a review

Ermagherd you guys, it’s been too long. I know that’s how I start every post now, but it’s true. I’m just swamped these days! Summer is just around the corner here in Vancity so it’s every spare minute outside for this poutiner (that’s a thing…). Add that to a busy job and weekends filled with shopping eating vigorous exercise (yes, I did just say that), there’s simply not an extra moment.

Once On the Lips

For years my daily lip routine has consisted of a lipstain and a slick of gloss; however, I have recently become keen on wearing lipstick. It’s part of my bid to be taken seriously as an adult… I’ll let you know how that turns out. I do have a few in my collection but they are all bright red or pink, not very daytime or office friendly.

OCD… Who? Me?

I love me a bold lip. I don’t have a lot of pigmentation in my lips so I feel that I tend to look super washed-out, and kind of undead, without a slick of gloss or lippy. Lately, I’ve been on the hunt for a nice daytime lipstick (no, I haven’t been shopping!). My current lipsticks are all bold reds or bright pinks, which are a lot of fun but not really suitable for the office… I don’t want to be that girl (you know the one: low-cut blouse and loud make-up, every office has one).

The Chopping Block

ojon 2

Curly hair is dry to begin with, add to that winter weather, an ombre dye job, and infrequent haircuts and we’ve got a disaster my friends. A couple of weeks ago my hair was in truly terrible shape. Frizzy, staticky, and crunchy feeling. It was not pretty. I decided to try out a hair mask. I wanted to see what all the fuss was about, and I was desperate for help. Off I went to Sephora (is there any other place???) in search of a remedy and I decided on the Ojon Restorative Hair Treatment.
