Romantic Valentine's Day Makeup Look

I was looking for a little Valentine's Day beauty inspiration recently and as I was browsing images, I noticed one look coming up over and over again. Glowing skin, a metallic eye, and a bright red lip seems to be the Valentine's look this year. With the above photos as my inspiration, here's how to recreate this look just in time for Valentine's Day. 

February Reading List

This month is all about reading books that are complementary titles to the one I am working on writing as we speak. For those of you who don’t know, my book, in short, is all about millennial sexuality. (For more detailed info click here.) This means that I get to spend a great deal of time reading about human sexuality and call it homework!

How To Stay Healthy

The first month of 2017 has officially come and gone, and I think it’s about time we checked in on those new year’s resolutions we made a few weeks ago. Like many people, one of my resolutions was to eat better and stay fitter. So far things have been going pretty well, so I thought I’d share my tips for how to stay healthy this year.

January Favourites

This month was a mix of discovering new products and falling back in love with some old favourites. Since I spent half the month living out of my suitcase, I really had to think carefully about what products I couldn't live without while out of the country. 


5 Surprises in New York City

Since my trip this month marked the third time I've been to New York City, I didn't think Manhattan would have any surprises left for me. I was wrong, which just goes to show that you should never think you've got it all figured out. As soon as you do, the world is sure to throw a few surprises your way. Here's what I learned about NYC after 10 days in downtown Manhattan.


Currently January

January often feels like a bit of a let-down after the holidays, but I've been lucky this month to travel to New York City, reunite with my school friends, and get a new dose of writing inspiration from some of our program's special guests. As usual, I've got a lot of new goals for a new year and I'm feeling pretty motivated this month to start 2017 on the right foot. Here's a glimpse of what I'm up to this month.

January Wishlist

There isn't much on my wishlist this month since after Christmas I really can't think of much I need. However, there are a few empty spots in my closet and my makeup drawer that could do with filling. 


What To Do When You've Finished Your First Draft

At the end of the November, I hit a major milestone and finished the first draft of the book I'm currently writing. I've been working on this project off-and-on since the summer of 2014 so this was a pretty major moment for me. December marked the first month of this book's second phase so I thought I'd share what to do after you've finished your first draft, based on my personal experience of course.
