Five Things #1

Welcome to a brand new blog series! I’ve seen the “Five Things” concept rolling around on the internet for quite awhile and I’ve realized that it’s actually one of my favourite things to read! I love the simplicity of it, the diversity in “things” (it doesn’t even have to be a physical thing) and the fact that it’s a post of pure positivity. In this series, I am going to share five things that I’m currently loving. Hopefully on a weekly basis….maybe bi-weekly? I’ll do an IG poll. Anyways, here it goes!


Keeping Comfortable in SILKS® Hosiery with LYCRA® FREEF!T® Technology

If you’ve been following me for a while you will know that I rarely wear anything that shows my knees. I have no idea why, but I like having my legs covered, so you can probably imagine that my collection of tights is pretty extensive.

In retrospect, I think it started in high school when I had to wear a kilt with my uniform. We were allowed to pair it with either knee high socks or tights and I would choose tights every time. Presently, I get teased (lovingly) for my “modest fashion” and have embraced the notion fully because I honestly can’t remember the last time that my knees graced the Internet. Actually, that’s not entirely true. There was one photo from my trip to Greece last year wearing only a beach cover-up. That’s it for 2017 though.


Four Products To Save Your Skin This Winter

Shop The Post

I’m not sure if you guys are tired of hearing about my dry skin woes, but I’m back with even more complaining now that winter is in full swing and the dry air is really real. I’ve mentioned it before, but I have really dry and sensitive skin. Although Accutane cleared up my skin as a teen, a lot of the lipid production never came back when I stopped using the drug. Thus, I am missing a lot of the key components of hydration in the epidermis my skin. Because of this, I’ve been faced with the issue of relentlessly dry skin due to the fact traditional moisturizing products only hydrate in a superficial sense through the temporary addition of water and oil. Luckily, after extensive trial and error, I’ve come up with the holy grail of hydration for your face.
