Winter Skin Care 2017

The harsh winter in Toronto does no justice for my skin, despite I have combination oily skin, my skin still needing a ton of hydration in the winter season. One major reason leading to my breakouts are lack of hydration, I learned that never be scared of oil products, sometime good nutritious oil is good for your skin. These are the products that I have been using for the last two months and improved my skin conditions! 

 I am currently using a combination of two different skin care lines: Amala Beauty and Skin Ceuticals.

Skin Ceuticals Products
I was recently introduced to Skin Ceuticals products, this line is know to proven by many dermatologist across the world, it is also proven to improve many skin problems. The major reason why I started using some of these products are due to my acne scars left over from my teenage years acne and my bad habit of picking on my pimples.

I have found these products to be very effective to improve fading of my scars and high pigmentation spots.

Holiday Gift Guides: His & Hers 2017

It is that time of the year again! Busy holiday season filled with many holiday shoppings lists. Every year, although I don't have a big friend group but I still struggled with buying the perfect Christmas gift for my friends. This year I have put together a little gift guide ideas, for both male and female. To be honest, females are probably the hardest to shop for, there's just too many options to select from. I even have trouble choosing what I want most of time. When it comes to gifting, unless the person is super specific with exactly the item she or he wants, it will be a struggle. But knowing the person's style, favourite colour and sizes are essentials to buy the "perfect" gift. Everyone's style is pretty different, different individuals like different pieces.

Size: Nano Hardware: Silver Material: Grained calfskin Size Dimension: 8.75"x7"x4" Price: $2,585 CAD (+taxes) Interior: Tonal suede, no additional zipper/pocket Yes, I recently purchased the classic Saint Laurent Sac De Jour in the Nano size, I absolutely love it and used it way too often maybe. This is the black with silver hardware as well as in the material of pebbled grained calfskin. It come with detachable strap with lanyard clasp fastening. When I was purchasing the bag, I was deciding between the baby or nano size for a very long time. I like how the baby size have a zipper pocket inside, but the nano does not. But the reason why I went for the nano is because I like to wear most of bag cross body, just a lot easier to get around the city. The baby size looks very awkward and big on my body when I wear it cross body. Despite the cons of not having a zipper inside, I have no issue with it. Also, when you look at the nano, you probably think it will fit nothing. Nope, y…
