A Month of Being Mindful

  Today is officially the last day of my 30 days of no complaining challenge. While it was literally impossible to eliminate all complaining the month taught me to be more mindful of other people as well as play a more active role in solving problems. Honestly, I don’t know if it was the climb out of…

Birchbox: April 2015 Edition

I had gifted my little sister with a 3 month subscription to Birchbox, but I recently decided to get my own. There was a bit of a shipping error but the customer service was awesome and fixed it right away and gave me a free box next month for the trouble. Everyone who ordered April’s…

Hello Kitty x The Simpsons

Ever since I first saw someone where this poncho sweater thing on an American friend’s Instagram, I wanted it badly! I found out that it was an exclusive piece from Japan LA. It is part of an official collaboration between Hello Kitty and The Simpsons. I couldn’t get over how adorable the chibi versions of…

Dinner With Friends @ The Comrade

Before a show at The Opera House, my friends and I had dinner at The Comrade. We ended up here by chance. Our original restaurant pick was too full but this one had a nice casual atmosphere about it. I ordered the Hanger Steak ($19). It was a PEI grass-fed beef with roasted vegetables. The…

Adventure Time x Dr. Martens

Prints from Origrami

As much as I love the ease of digital photography, I still love the feeling of holding a photograph so I printed some of my Instagram photos through Australian site, Origrami. They were delivered rather quickly by mail (considering I live in Canada). The photos came in an adorable camera shaped box with a branded…

Tetris Mug

I picked up this cool Tetris mug that changes when hot liquid is poured in it. It looks empty when there is nothing in it. It’s still a safe game of Tetris. You can see a faint outline of where the pieces will appear when something warmer is is poured in the mug. I used…

Ipsy Glam Bag – April 2015

I was undecided whether to stay with Ipsy after my first bag but since I was too on unsubscribing I received the April glam bag. This month’s theme was Beautifully Bohemian. The products came in a cute straw-like bag. Like last time, I’ve never heard of most of these brands. I am excited to try the Hikari blush which…
