March 2017 Favourites

I've done a few monthly favourites posts before (see here and here) but since they're from years ago, I thought I'd revisit. Each month, I plan on rounding up my favourites and sharing them with you. This month, I rounded up my favourites from all aspects of my blog: beauty, fashion and lifestyle.

Project: Finish Samples

I was looking through my desk the other day and realized I had a ton of clutter. I've been reading a few books that involve minimalism and only owning things that bring you joy. This concept was new to me because growing up, I was very fortunate to have more than I needed. I had more toys than I could play with, and more books than I could read. Minimalism is becoming a very hot topic in modern society because we take a lot for granted. Think about it: when are you going to wear that sweater that still has the tags on it? After reading these books, I realized I need to declutter my life, so why not document it?

Why use Green Beauty?

Over the past few years, I've started noticing that all-natural products are slowly showing up everywhere. So many people I know are turning to a more natural approach to their lifestyle: being more aware of what they put in/on their body, exercising more and taking better care of their health. In a world of fast and immediate, it's sometimes hard to understand why people are taking it slow by taking a step back from their hectic lives. Why natural? Here's a few reasons that I've dabbled in the world of clean living...

bedface Review

Let's talk beds, shall we? When you get to a hotel... somehow their bed is so much more luxurious than home, right? That's because their bedding is top notch. Before bedface, I never knew just how important a good night's sleep with good sheets were! (Tips for good sleep in another blog post here!) After trying out the bedface sheets, I knew I needed to let you guys know all about this company. And while we're on the topic of getting real... let's be honest here, when I first got contacted by bedface, I thought that it was just going to be more bedding in my closet that I would have no idea how to fold. (Seriously, what's the deal with fitted sheets?!) Strangely enough, this experience made me appreciate different types of linen and I'm super excited to share the best damn sheets on the internet with you guys. bedface bedding Canadian company bedsheets
