St. Ives scrubs

A while back I was out shopping with a friend and we ended up stopping by shoppers at the end of our trip. Of course I completely forgot about the fact that I ran out of face scrub and was left with only  a bit of money. Luckily this lovely little green tea scrub was on sale, so I thought might as well try it. And I cannot even exlain to you how much I loved it. I'm not going to say that it is a miracle or that it's better than every high end skin care product but it did work well for me and after a few days I noticed an improvement with my skin. Fast forward two months and I ran out so I went to get some more. Since I loved them so much I thought I would share with whomever is reading and having a bit of trouble with their skin. I usually follow it up with a moisturizer like you would with any other scrub and use it about 4 times a week. Highly recommend it, of course everybodies skin is different and you just have to see what's best for you. 
If you have any other skin care recommendations feel free to comment down below. Thanks for reading :)

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 :

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