It’s very dry where I live. Think of a desert with snow. As I’ve aged I’ve found that my skin is less able to cope with the climate than it was when I was younger. It’s still oily but now, for the first time in my life, I am having to deal with the occasional dry patch, some redness, and a general tight feeling in my skin. Unpleasant. I got this generous sample size of Sunday Riley Good Genes All-I-One Lactic Acid Treatment in a Sephora Favourites box of goodies I bought last winter. I finally got around to using it in February and within a few weeks my skin was looking the best it had in a long time. Colour me impressed.
Welcome to another Everlane review! In the past I’ve stayed away from delicate fabrics such as silk and cashmere. I was worried that I would not be able to properly wash them (we do not have access to reliable dry cleaning where I live) and end up ruining the garment. Recently, I’ve decided that life is short and if I want to wear silk and cashmere then I am going to wear silk and cashmere. Lack of dry cleaning facilities be darned, I’ll hand wash! I’d been eyeing up Everlane’s silk shirts for several months so I was delighted when the chance to try out their Shirred Silk Shirt came up. I ordered it in black because I did not want to tempt the fates with a lighter colour.
You may have heard me mention that fact that I have oily skin the odd time, or three. It’s true. It’s a constant battle to keep my makeup from disappearing and it gets worse in the warm months. Over the years I’ve picked up a few tips and tricks to make my look last longer in the heat and today I’m sharing my top five summer makeup tips for summer 2019!
In my childhood home, it was not uncommon to find all five of my family members sitting around with our noses in a book. I’m a big reader, just like my parents and siblings. I don’t talk about books a lot here, but today I thought I’d share the five best books for 2019!
Welcome to my first Everlane review! I’ve talked a fair bit about sweatshirts already, but I felt that there was room for one more in my collection. My Everlane Lightweight French Terry Crew is different from my other sweatshirts in shape, fit, colour, and fabric so I think it was a worthwhile addition to my closet.
