Feeling Stuck? Here Are 10 Ways to Feel Better

Summer is typically a season for fun & happiness. There are weddings to attend, road trips to take and lounging by the [insert the body of water of your choice here]. It seems impossible to feel anything less than stellar waking up to sunshine but life doesn’t exactly wait for a more ideal time to make you feel low. Mid to late Summer tends to bring on these feelings thinking about the Fall and ‘going back to reality’ – and maybe that reality leaves you feeling stuck.

When you’re feeling stuck, whether it’s in a job you hate or in a relationship that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere, the feeling sucks. You may feel like nothing you do is helping make the situation better or you may not even know what to do to start feeling better but one thing’s for sure Continue reading “Feeling Stuck?

5 Great Self-Care & Productivity Tips for Creatives

Guys, it’s Thursday – we’ve almost made it to the weekend! Woohoo! Over at the beehive (aka the Coynes), we’re preparing for guests to visit this weekend – which includes a Blue Jays game, lots of food, some adult bevvies and a whole lot of fun. This also means late nights, running on little sleep and not a whole lot of blogging time (eep!). While no one ever really has to tell us twice to make time for fun, it’s really hard for self-made ladies like us to actually practice good habits and take care of ourselves. So before we head into another fun-filled weekend, Continue reading “5 Great Self-Care & Productivity Tips for Creatives”

This eyeshadow is triple milled which means it is super fine, making it that much easier to smooth and blend! Matt Kumar is an ultra-matte cranberry shade that has staying power on your lids and creases. One of my favourite ways to experiment with colour in my makeup is my eyeshadow so I can’t wait to give this a try – it can even be used dry or wet!

This primer is the first to bring the brightening benefits from probiotic coconut to beauty. This primer promises to provide hydration while helping you to look fresh and flawless for longer. It also doubles as a moisturizer and leaves you looking and feeling radiant. I can’t wait to give this a try as coconut oil really has great benefits & primers are a great tool for me!

This brush is made with high-quality, dome-shaped nylon bristles that allows for you to pack on the colour when applying. This brush is perfect for blending in the crease and corners. I’ll be using this brush with my new eyeshadow!

The yellow tinge in this setting powder helps color-correct to offset redness while pulling double duty to act as a subtle highlight. It works for all skin tones (from fair to dark) & is great for hiding undereye circles (score for me!) Screen Shot 2016-07-19 at 1.42.21 PM

When life give you lemons, use them to heal your dry skin with this citrus-scented lotion! This lotion is incredibly lightweight and moisturizing for you, head to toe.
