Summer Shoe Collection

I have had to kind of dress up this summer, so the shoes that have gotten the most wears are the ones that are appropriate for the dresses (and the two pairs of work pants I own) that I like to wear them with. You guys, because I am trying to be mindful about money,…

Top Ten Makeup Loves 

I am a big fan of anything that will enhance what I’ve already got (without changing my face contours). I like bright colours on my lips and wide open eyes. I like lipstick and mascara. The products you see above are what I call my “full face.” I use mascara, my favorite colour corrector (for…

Personal Style 

Personal style is something that is cultivated over time. As for me, I would say that my style, throughout the years, has grown with me.

Baked Salmon

Baked Salmon I like salmon in every way: baked, grilled, smoked, sushi’d…you name it.

Baked salmon is at its best when it’s flaky and juicy on the inside and a tiny…
