Once upon a time, Nat subscribed to Amazon Prime for a whole year by accident.

Ok, you caught me. That happened two days ago.

I wish I could say I regret it, but Amazon Prime has proven to be very handy these last two days.

Needed cardstock for a Valentine’s Day project, but it was freezing rain out. Amazon Prime. (I tipped the delivery man, I swear.)

Humidifier broke, but I was too sick to haul myself to Canadian Tire. Amazon Prime.

Had an insatiable need to try WUNDERBROW Brow Gel by WUNDER2. No ‘but’ – just a need. ASAP. Amazon Prime.

I regret nothing, but you’ll regret not clicking through the break for my review of the WUNDERBROW beauty solution!

Shop: The Face Shop

Face Shop Haul.jpg

Once upon a time, Nat was on a mission to check a wedding errand off her list and ended up buying non-wedding related things.

But if we’re talking skincare, then it technically could be considered wedding-related because it is important for any bride to have great skin for their wedding day. See what I did there?

The Face Shop company was created in Korea and, well, considering how flawlessly stunning most Koreans’ skin is, I feel kinda silly that it took me this long to fully appreciate the products. It all started with high praise from a trusted family member regarding the Jeju Volcanic Lava line and the Pore Cleansing Wipes.

I’m the addictive type, so the rest is history.

Follow through the link for details on what I bought – and what is currently in my online shopping cart. Oops.

Hello. It’s me

I must say, there is nothing quite like obtaining VIB Rouge status to break a girl’s Western wilderness reverie. In between these adventures, I have been focused on improving my skincare routine and I have finally figured out a customized system that works for me! I’d say that’s worth forgiving my hiatus, amirite?


Maybe it took a while (and a lot $$$) to get me here, and maybe don’t tell C where some of my money has disappeared to this year, but do click through the images below to read about these current beauty faves! (Low qual pics end here.)

Confessions of a Springaholic

Spring Buys

Ok, I can explain the logic behind this splurge.

What kind of person would I be if I blogged all about spring cleaning and refreshing essentials, but didn’t follow my own advice? A hypocrite, of course, but with a poor complexion and terribly styled hair. Even. Worse.

I’ve been on and on about how the dry climate in my new city has taken its toll on my skin and hair. I’ve been trying all sorts of different products, but I’ve finally committed to the ones above. For Spring, at least.

To find out what I like about my new Spring picks, keep reading!

Nat’s Fave Beauty Minis

I can’t believe January has already come and gone! We survived the post-holiday blahs and the #bluestMonday, and so it’s safe to say I can’t wait for February! Valentine’s Day? Super Bowl? NBA All-Star Weekend? Award show after award show? Count me in!

As you know, the one major challenge I’ve had since moving to Edmonton is the harsh effect the weather has had on my skin and hair. I kick-started 2016 with Boscia, but my skin still dried out when the crazy low weather hit. Thankfully, we’ve been experiencing mild weather lately, but I know Mother Nature is going to yank the proverbial rug from under me soon enough.

Sharing my most recent fave beauty minis after the break because it’s better to be moisturized than sorry (and dry AF). ❤
