Meet Korra!

Dylan and I have wanted to get a kitty for a long time and now that we are in a pet friendly apartment we have been having a very difficult time resisting. We tried to be responsible and calculate the costs into our budget in order to try to remind ourselves that cats are a big responsibility and can be expensive, but it didn’t work. We went to the SPCA on Sunday and brought home an adorable, stubborn, affectionate cat we’ve named Korra. (Yes, that is a Legend of Korra reference for all of you Avatar: The Last Airbender fans.)

Beauty Guide: “No Makeup” Makeup

The past few weeks I have been taking a couple of courses online to meet degree requirements for Dalhousie and they have been working me pretty hard. I have been working all day and night on these courses in order to finish them for September and usually that means that I’m ignoring my makeup all together, but sometimes I want a little something to help make me feel a little more put together. This something happens to be my “no makeup” makeup look – something that wouldn’t look strange if I go out in my yoga pants and baggy t-shirt with my hair in a messy bun, but still looks a little bit put together. And as a bonus it takes all of five minutes!

This will likely be my last post in this #jodydomoving segment, at least for quite a long time! My friends and family have been waiting for this post anxiously and I’m quite excited to show off our apartment, even though it’s got a long way to go before we’ll be happy with it. If that’s even possible when I love decorating!

Luxe Box Summer 2014 Review

luxe box summer 2014

My first Luxe Box arrived before we moved out of our apartment in Edmonton, sometime mid to late June. I considered doing an unboxing on here, but thought that might be a little weird outside of video form, so I’ve been looking forward to this review for quite a while now!
