Falling for Autumn

      Fall is coming, and with it the time for warm knit sweaters, cozy blankets, tea and candles. I was feeling in a pretty festive mood so I decided to try to spread some fall cheer to those of you who aren't as exited about the cold (As for the people on the other side of the world who are wearing tank tops and shorts right now, lucky you :)

       One of my favourite things to wear are baggy sweaters. Sadly, I'm not much of a sweatpants person but you can never go wrong with knit sweaters. They are the most cozy thing in the world and they look amazing too... most of the time. Speaking of incredibly cozy things, don't forget about fuzzy socks to keep your feet warm on the cold nights, especially if your heating sucks.

       Another huge favourite for me is candles. I have a bunch of them. I know there are people in the world right now with a room stacked full of candles but I really don't need as much as I have. Unfortunately, my will power is very weak so every time I go into Bath and Body Works I'm like, "I must have everything".

       Surely, I can't forget about the beverages. Coffee, tea and hot chocolate are all spectacular but recently I have been enjoying Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait by Davids Tea. It's a fruity, herbal, caffeine-free tea and it's very yummy.

      So enjoy your autumn (Or at least make the best of it) and comment bellow what your least/most favourite thing about fall is <3


  1. Love the knitted sweat which you're wearing in the photograph;
    looks so comfy! xx

  2. Thanks for commenting :) It's from Zara

  3. I've never been much of a candles person (they make me sneeze for some reason) but I'm with you on the cozy knits. The bigger the sweater, the better!

    Another Beautiful Thing

    1. So true, sweaters are amazing and I know a few other people who seem to be intolerant to the scent of candles. A cute little thing that I've seem in some stores are electric candles. They don't have a scent, there is no fire hazard because it doesn't actually have a flame and they look super cute if you put them in a candle holder or jar. Also, nice blog :) PS: Your new double zip bag is gorgeous.

  4. Lovely post :)

    I'm obsessed with Jo Malone candles!

    Fleur x

  5. Thanks for commenting :) I've heard great things about them and your name is awesome! It's really uncommon to find a person named Fleur in Canada.

  6. Oh dear, I love candles and tea so much! I just recently bought Yankee Candle's Home Sweet Home and it's the best scent ever.

    1. Totally, candles and tea are amazing especially with a good book in a cozy room :)

Lasting Finish matte lipsticks by Kate Moss

I am absolutely in love with this lipstick. Let's start off with the fact that its super long lasting. I can actually still see it on my wrist from when I did swatches.  Like many other matte lip products it can be a bit drying, especially the dark red, but its nothing a little lip balm can't fix. Also, it is so pigmented, there is no need for more than 2 coats. It comes in loads of different shades and do not even get me started on how good these smell.
       The dark red one is shade 107. Sadly they don't have names, only numbers. It is quite hard to wear since it's a bit out of my comfort zone but I still absolutely love it and if you're in the market for a new red I highly suggest this one.       The next one is a coral in shade 32 and I think it would be amazing for summer. A little tip, if you want to go for a more natural look put some lip balm under it, then apply a little bit of the lipstick and then finish it off with another layer of lip balm. P…

It's been a while

I was looking through my computer and stumbled upon this blog that was active long ago. Looking through some of my old posts I realized how much I have changed over the years. Since my last post, I have successfully completed two years of university, made some great friends (even a boyfriend), and have learned a lot (not just about NMRs and antibiotic resistance). So here are 3 things I have learned in the past couple years:

1. Pushing yourself out of your comfort zone is the only way you'll grow. Through most of high school, I was very shy and only had a couple of good friends. I struggled with talking to new people and was always worried about what they thought of me. When I started university though I used it as a way of starting fresh and becoming a better version of myself. I'm not saying it's easy but it is definitely worth it.

2. Its okay to fail sometimes. First year actually wasn't too bad for me but when second year came around I spread myself too thin and di…


Where has the summer gone? It feels like I've just finished my last exams of the school year and now I'm back to textbooks, chalkboards and a bunch of homework. I feel like every summer I plan to do something epic but mostly end up getting lazy and sleeping all day when I'm not watching netflix. This summer was mostly occupied by my summer job as a day camp counselor and it was honestly so much fun (the few headaches due to the noise were pretty much the worst of it) i still did a few things and i thought i'd share some of the pictures :

forest walks

Well... time to bring out the pumpkins, tea and candles. What did you guys do this summer?  Thanks for reading :)
