What I Eat In a Day

Hello! I realize that an important way to prevent yourself from getting sick or easily tired is eating well. We're also living away from parents now so C and I need to figure out our meals ourselves.

Follow along to see what I ate in a day!

Current Beauty & Accessory Faves

Hello, welcome back! Today I wanted to share my current beauty and accessory faves with you. They've all captured my heart, with some products that are brand new and others just rediscoveries of how amazing they are. I'm trying to build a practice of appreciating the things that I already have, so I don't have urges to always go for and buy the latest things.

Kare Home Decor Inspiration

 Hi again! C and I are almost done organizing our condo, and now I finally get to style and design my own home! Last year I did a home decor inspiration post here, and it's cool to see how I've already incorporated most of the things I've listed in that post into our condo. We're not done with the styling yet, but once we are finished I'd be happy to show you guys the finished look (let me know in the comments below if you would like to see that!)

Kare invited me to visit their first ever Canadian showroom in Downtown Toronto on Queen West. Kare is a furniture company originating from Munich, and it prides itself in being unconventional, unique, and style-forward. Kare also produces home decor and houseware. I really needed some fresh inspiration, and I definitely got some great ideas at the showroom.

Here are some of the concepts I took away from the visit!

Easy Fall Makeup Look feat. Charlotte Tilbury

It truly feels like fall weather now. It's colder, rainy, and the leaves have all turned their colours (sadly starting to fall too). However the beautiful reds, oranges, and yellows of the leaves really make the fall season that much better, and lately I've been really into a wash of orange on the lids for that warm fall look.

Instant Pot Recipe: Teriyaki Rice with Chicken and Vegetables

Hello! Now that C and I are living together, it means that I have to start cooking our meals as well. Many people know that I don't particularly like cooking, but it helps if I have a great recipe to follow. We have an Instant Pot and I thought that I would try something out with it for the first time. So, I started scrolling Pinterest for Instant Pot recipes and I found this one by Life Made Sweeter for Teriyaki Rice with Chicken and Vegetables! It was so good! I love to repost recipes as a way for me to keep my recipes together and share them with you to try too.


After making this recipe, there are a few changes that I would do so that it cooks better to my personal liking (slightly softer rice, more chicken, slightly less sauce). The original is linked above, but feel free to follow either or. :)

Review: Laneige BB Cushion

Hello to those who still visit my little corner of the Internet! Thank you to those who've stuck with me through this dry patch of a year. The posts have been sparse here but I must say that life has been so busy until now. I'm now married to C, and we're currently on our honeymoon in Barbados! It feels so good to have all this time to not think about or do anything, and so I'm writing this post for you now in bed.

Today's post is a review of the Laneige BB Cushion*. Laneige has always been one of my favourite high-end but still affordable skincare brands so when they sent this to me to try, I was excited to try out their product that was more makeup-like than skincare.

Summer is the season to be outside, and one thing that I want to do by the end is to have another picnic! It's about time I do some spontaneous al fresco dining and enjoy the beautiful weather.

There are a few things that I need to make this picnic happen, and I can find them at Wayfair.ca! Wayfair is an online site that sells all things for the home, from couches to BBQ grills, light fixtures to window blinds, and everything in between. C and I have purchased several items for our home from Wayfair, so it was also very easy for me to find these three must have items on the site that would make my picnic doable:
