Outlander Mitts

One of my favourite period dramas is Starz’s Outlander, based on the time-travelling series of novels of the same name by Diane Gabaldon. I love the score, the film locations, the actors, and, of course, the costumes from the first series. Have you ever spotted something in a movie or TV series and thought, ‘I …

XI Winter Paralympics Closing Ceremony

I woke up an hour early for the Closing Ceremony, forgetting that DST set the Pacific at 13 hours behind. The Closing Ceremony began around 20.00 MSK (9.00AM PT/12PM ET). I watched the Closing Ceremony on CBC’s Live Stream since the Paralympics’ Live Stream on YouTube was somehow 3 hours behind (however, it is live …

Review: Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream

(This post is written for The Glosse Posse.) As most of Canada and the United States battle the terrorising winter that Ned Stark warned about, Vancouver, British Columbia has had another fine winter. We barely had any snow and temperatures rarely dropped past -10C. What I’m trying to say is, this is a very biased …

Review: Body Lotions for Winter

(This post was written for The Glosse Posse.) One of the main reasons I don’t care for winter is that it makes my skin very dry. If I forget to put on hand lotion, I will end up with several paper cuts. My elbows and knees look like elephant skin. When I lived in Ontario …

Review: Vichy Aqualia Thermal Night Spa

(This post was written for The Glosse Posse.) I’m taking a break from Pinterest beauty pins this month to focus on some products to protect the skin, lips, and hair for winter (I realise some of my readers might be enjoying – or not – their summer right now). Today’s product review is on Vichy’s …
