MY DAYTIME SKIN CARE ROUTINE

MY DAYTIME SKIN CARE ROUTINE

Taking care of my skin has been very important to me as I live with eczema. I have always been self-conscious about my skin especially the common areas where my eczema would occur, such as my underarms, my arms, my knees, and my neck. Living with eczema is no fun and often times I try to hide it as much as I can. Although I have been prescribed medical creams for my skin, I will always live with eczema, however, taking care of my skin as helped. As such, I decided to share with you my daytime skin care routine.

Before I begin, I would like to place a disclaimer that I am not a dermatologist or any Continue reading “MY DAYTIME SKIN CARE ROUTINE”

MY CARRY-ON TRAVEL ESSENTIALS

MY CARRY-ON TRAVEL ESSENTIALS

I don’t know if it’s just me, but I love packing my carry-on! Whenever I travel, I love going out shopping to get all of my essentials in travel size! Yes, it’s the smallest things that make me happy and seeing all of my favourite products in miniature size makes packing even more exciting. Besides the stress of checking in, passing through security, and finding your gate, nothing is more stressful than not having the essentials you need to have a smooth trip. When I left for Kenya, I made sure I had everything on board with me, from travel-sized toothbrushes to all types of medication, you name it, I was prepared.

KENYA | THE SECOND FLIGHT AND FIRST NIGHT

KENYA | THE SECOND FLIGHT AND FIRST NIGHT

During our eight-hour layover in Amsterdam, some of the girls and I decided to walk around the airport to purchase food before boarding our flight. Walking around the airport made you feel like you were in a mall or a shopping centre. With the little cute shops and cafes, I did not feel like I was in an airport. Some of the girls decided to purchase food at McDonald’s, but instead of purchasing food there, I decided to purchase food at a little cute teacup cafe. After being served Chicken Rice, Potato Salad, and Chocolate Cake on the plane – in which I did not finish – I was starving.

For breakfast, I decided to order a croissant stuffed with organic cheese and farmer’s Continue reading “KENYA | THE SECOND FLIGHT AND FIRST NIGHT”

KENYA | THE FIRST FLIGHT

KENYA | THE FIRST FLIGHT

After postponing this for a month, I am going to finally share my experiences in Kenya-yay and the crowd goes wild! I still feel like the trip never happened yet and it’s coming up soon, but since I took the time to share my stories with my family and friends, I now have the motivation to share it on my blog! Yes, I’m still trying to adjust back home and even though it has been over a month, I still feel like I am in a different time zone. Without further ado, here is the beginning of my journey to Kenya.

May 7th, 2017, was the day I departed from Toronto International Airport to Kenya. Upon arrival at the airport, the group and I had to meet at 1:30 P.M to check in. Mind you, Continue reading “KENYA | THE FIRST FLIGHT”

HELLO AGAIN

HELLO AGAIN

Before I begin, I just wanted to tell you that I miss you. I truly and deeply miss you. I miss the blogging world and sharing my thoughts and travels. I miss that rush that goes through my veins as I type word after word. I miss the feeling of simply pressing the publish button and posting a new blog post for you.

In this post, I wanted to discuss something personal. No, it is nothing too extreme, however, it is one of the reasons why I have not been blogging. Ever since the winter semester began, I felt as if I wasn’t connected to myself. I felt like I was distancing and taking myself away from me which made it difficult to comprehend the things that were Continue reading “HELLO AGAIN”

WOMEN’S MARCH ON CHICAGO

WOMEN’S MARCH ON CHICAGO

Saturday, January 21, 2017 will be a day I will never forget. A day that will forever live in my memory and define me as the woman I am today. On the morning of January 21, 2017, marchers gathered in Downtown Chicago at East Jackson Boulevard and South Lake Shore Drive, with a mission to make their voices heard and to support one another in protecting and furthering women’s rights and civil liberties.

That morning, I had the opportunity to march with more than 250,000 beautiful individuals of different colours, backgrounds, religious faiths, and politics. Individuals Continue reading “WOMEN’S MARCH ON CHICAGO”

EXPLORING LONDON, ENGLAND

EXPLORING LONDON, ENGLAND

Day three of our London adventure, we were given an option to visit different places the city had to offer. The options included going to Abbey Road and 221B Baker Street, boarding the Belfast warship, or visiting Westminster Abbey and the scale heights of the Tower Bridge. My friend and I jumped on board to visit Westminster Abbey and the Tower Bridge.

After breakfast, the group and I headed for the Underground to venture off into the city. After our departure from Hatton Cross, it took us a total of eighteen stops to get to our Continue reading “EXPLORING LONDON, ENGLAND”

TOBERMORY, ONTARIO PART TWO

TOBERMORY, ONTARIO PART TWO

Sleep during the night was quite impossible. Being in such a beautiful town, I could not wait to explore Tobermory even more. The intense feeling of wanting to be out there exploring, made me feel restless during the night. I was craving for more adventures thus could not wait to begin the next day.

We woke up around four-in-the-morning, as per usual, got ready, and began our drive into Wiarton, once again. As the closest Tim Horton’s was located in the small town, we decided to grab our breakfast on-the-go before making our way up to Cyprus Lake. (Yes, us Canadians need our Timmie’s in the morning!) Since we were not able to enter the Continue reading “TOBERMORY, ONTARIO PART TWO”

TOBERMORY, ONTARIO PART ONE

TOBERMORY, ONTARIO PART ONE

Before I begin my recap, I want to apologize for the absence on my blog. I try my best to update as much as I can but with work and school coming up, I feel like my days are getting shorter and school is approaching faster than I expected. With that, I have a little exciting news to share with all of you darling readers! First, I surpassed my 50 followers milestone on WordPress which does not seem like a big deal, I know, but having started this blog last year with the mindset that I was going to fail as a blogger, this is a tiny celebratory moment for me! Second, I was offered a Contributing Position which I’m a little nervous and excited about, but I will go into more details in a separate post. Continue reading “TOBERMORY, ONTARIO PART ONE”
