My at-home uniform

I’d be lying if I said my weekday uniform hasn’t changed much since I swapped my office job for the freelance lifestyle. Blazers, tailored pants and blouses were quickly replaced by my comfiest joggers, large sweaters and pyjama sets. It wasn’t until I was two months into my new routine that I realized the toll […]

A few of my favourite 2017-2018 finds

Like I mentioned in my last post, while I may have been on a slight blog hiatus, I was not on a hiatus from finding a few things I really, truly love. I’m the type of person who struggles to fit new things into my routine – especially if they don’t seem to easily flow with the other moving parts.

A love letter to winter skincare

Kiehls Ultra Facial Cream

If we’re anything alike, you most likely have your winter skincare routine down to a system by now. The cold, harsh winter always dries out my skin and leave me thirsty (ha) for hydration. While the products I use each year tend to change up every once in a while, my system remains pretty much the same.
