Breaking Beauty Standards in Alessia Cara’s “Scars To Your Beautiful”

Finding My Chill with Muji

I have no chill. As in, I have a really hard time finding my inner calmness, relaxing, and just chilling out. My inability to find peace and recharge is one of my biggest self care struggles.


Back in April I was approached by Muji Canada to come visit their head office for their first open house. At the time I didn’t know too much about the brand beyond having been in the store before and seen their selection of lifestyle and home goods. I knew them to be a favorite among YouTube beauty gurus for their acrylic storage cases often used to organize makeup but I didn’t know about their philosophy and what makes them different.

After hearing from the president himself, I learned that their products are designed to be functional with a clean, minimalist aesthetic. Their ideal life is a “simple pleasant life“, a concept at the heart of their vision.

New Year, New Me?

New year, who dis?


I know I said here that I’m not into New Years Resolutions and I’m still not into the idea of them but I’m a sucker for goal-setting and self improvement and the start of a new year just feels like the right time to look at life, see where I’m at, and what I’d like to work on.

Keepin’ it Real

I love you guys a lot and as part of this special lil connection we’re building I promise to always keep it real with you guys and that includes admitting when I’m struggling a little. As some of you may have noticed I usually try to post about every 5 days or so and if I go much beyond that it probably means that I’m out here floundering, LOL. #Help
