“I like my money right where I can see it… hanging in my closet.”

I’m a bag girl at heart. Shoes, while nice, don’t really do it for me. I like coats as well, but a gorgeous handbag really makes me swoon. For years, and years, and years I’ve pinned and Googled and stalked second hand sites in search of my dream bag. I don’t know that I’ve found it yet… maybe I have more than one dream bag?
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. She translates that in her studio by turning gold and gems into collectable pieces of distinct, limited-edition jewelry. I was instantly smitten with the brand for a number of reasons, including their commitment to sustainability, the accessible price point, and the simplicity of their gorgeous pieces.
Welcome to another Everlane review! I regularly scour Poshmark for new Everlane listings and I was delighted when I came across a listing for the Everlane Soft Cotton Square Crew in washed black in my size. I snapped it up.
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.
