The Face Shop Face Mask Roundup

I know I've mentioned it in previous posts, but I used to have a horrible skincare regime that didn't extend past washing my face with regular soap & water, followed by slathering on a cheapie drugstore lotion. I never wore foundation or used eye creams, toners or serums... and I definitely didn't use face masks. I remember a couple times I received (as gifts) face masks when I was in my early teens. You know the typical spa-like gift bags you receive on your birthday from friends or relatives that usually includes a loofah, some nail polish, and a few ...

A Letter to the Out of Work Actor

Dear Struggling, Out of Work Actor, Being an actor is hard. Let me correct myself, being a working actor isn't hard. Being a working actor is great, it's fulfilling, it's doing what you love and getting paid to do it. But being an out of work actor, struggling to get auditions and book gigs is what's hard. Since I moved to Toronto it's been a struggle for me to be seen by the Casting Directors here. While some have given me the opportunity (mostly for commercials) and I've been lucky enough to book a few of them... there are still so ...

Unexpected Layering

Isn't it amazing how the sun can instantly pick up your mood? Before this week I felt like Toronto had been stuck in a lull of grey, rainclouds, and gloom. Many of us felt like winter had dragged on too long, and wondered when on earth we would finally get to see the light. I find when the weather is dreary my motivation tends to be at a low, I just want to spend all day in bed and not face the wet and cold outside. Luckily for us Torontonians, this week it appears Spring has finally sprung in the ...

Crazy for Culottes

I have a slight obsession with culottes. I'm not sure when this obsession started, but I just can't seem to get enough of them lately. Culottes really started to make a comeback a couple years ago, and although they've been popular for awhile, it doesn't look like they're going away anytime soon. So why do I love them so much? I love that culottes look flattering on literally every body shape, from the way that they're nipped at the waist to their wide leg... they just look good on everyone. I love that they're so comfortable you feel like you're ...

My Hair Growth Journey with Viviscal

My hair growth journey has been anything but easy. In fact if I could use a couple adjectives to describe it they would be something along the lines of long, gruelling, frustrating, painfully slow. I started really trying to put effort into growing my hair about 2 years ago, after I realized that even though I hadn't Β gotten my hair cut in years, my hair had grown a startling zero inches. Ok, I guess it's a bit of a lie when I say it didn't grow, all hair grows.. but as much as the roots were doing their part, the ...
