Discussion: Here we are now...entertainers?

I've been thinking about upping the entertainment value of my blog. 

Doodling master plans of confetti bursts for every visit seemed like a worthwhile use of 10 mins, but at the end of the day, I want my writing to be the main headliner. 

My favorite blogs are those that have actual voice. They have that hook that draws me into something that would have been stale; I might not care about that blush but I will care about how you write about it, the more self-deprecating the better, the more nuanced the better. And you get some Jenn-points (purchasing power = zero) if you tease out the hilarity of a situation with an economy of words.

So...?Sinful Fragrance Review*

So...?Sinful fragrance review

I don't think perfumes made it anywhere near my radar all the way through highschool. I remember catching whiffs of the 'popular' girls as they walked through the halls and knew that perfume was a 'thing' but never bothered about it. Now that I think about it, I probably wouldn't have been able to spend $60+ on a fancy bottle of perfume then but I'm starting to realize more purse-friendly options are out there.

Guest Post: Natalie's Red and White Look

Hi everyone! My name is Natalie, and I blog over at Ivory Avenue. Ivory Avenue is a wild collection of beauty, fashion and lifestyle – though this is a rough definition. I really blog about whatever tickles my fancy. I love discussing current trends, reviewing products and finding new designers and shops.
I'll be taking over Jenn's blog for the day as part of the Canadian Beauty Bloggers monthly guest posting, and as the theme this month is Canada, I'll be going all drastic with red and white makeup!

The Blush Challenge


Last year or so, I completed my lipstick challenge where I used a different lipstick every day. I should probably get into that habit again but instead, as I was purging my stash, I saw that the number of blushes I had were significant (p>0.05).

Skincare gets me excited, the 'for realz', jazz hands, heart palpitation, first love type excited. Throw me a scrub and some fancy ingredients and I'll show you what dying of happiness looks like.

 Even though Vancouver based Skoah was 10 mins from my GVRD home and even though I place Skoah on the same pedestal as Dermalogica, I never went. So ZOMGS thank you Skoah for letting me try this Even-Keeled Kit. You can also win your own ($140 retail value)! Here are first impressions of the brand which offers "personal training for your skin".
