Tips on Getting Started with the Instant Pot

This is my first photoshoot of 2018, and I couldn't have picked a better day. The temperature was +5 C, so I was very comfortable taking photos in this cozy outfit. I've been getting a couple of questions about my LV Speedy 25, as I have started clipping on a bag strap to make it into a crossbody - it's made it so much more versatile, I use it all the time now! Anyways, in today's post I wanted to share some tips and tricks on using the Instant Pot - it is seriously life-changing - dinner time is so much easier since I bought mine!

I'm a bit of a gadget-queen when it comes to cooking (since I'm always looking for ways to make my life easier). I own a crockpot and a George Foreman grill - but nothing revolutionizes the cooking process like the Instant Pot! It takes pressure cooker technology and automates it - so you get flavour-infused meals in very little time. And unlike stove-top cooking, you don't have to stand around, stirring and checking your food constantly.

How I Deal with Competition in the Blogging World

Is the blogging world a friendly place - or is it filled with gossip, jealousy and competition? This is a change of pace from my usual posts - but I'm writing about this topic as it has come up frequently in conversations I've had with fellow bloggers - as well as with people who are just starting out. Like any other job, blogging has its benefits and challenges. But the public nature of our work adds a layer of complexity, because everyone knows everybody else's business!

My Favourite Haircare Products from Amazon

I recently asked over on Instagram what type of content you guys would like to see - and a lot of you mentioned that you wanted to see more product reviews of tried & tested favourites. So in today's post, I'm sharing the haircare products I can't live without!

As a beauty blogger, I like finding the most effective products - and although I try new things, I have some haircare staples that I always come back to. I've been using most of these products for 6+ years - read on to see what they are:

Using the Louis Vuitton Poche Toilette 26 as a Clutch

The Louis Vuitton Poche Toilette 26 has been on my radar ever since I spotted it on @brookecarriehil about a year ago. It is sold as a toiletry pouch - but a lot of people use it as a clutch. In Canada, it's listed on the Louis Vuitton website as "Toiletry Pouch 26" and retails for $475 plus tax.

Since it's such a classic item - it's also pretty easy to find on the preloved market. I purchased mine for under $200 from an LV reseller in Japan (I had it authenticated over on TPF). Since it's just a fun accessory and not an investment piece - I didn't want to pay full price for it!

Holiday Dressing: What to Wear for Casual Events

For the final post in my Holiday Dressing series with WINNERS and Marshalls, I'm sharing an easy combination that would work for any casual event that you're invited to over the holiday season.

I'm all about easy outfit combinations, where you don't have to spend too much time thinking about what to wear. One of my favourite combos is blazer + pretty camisole + distressed jeans + flats.  Blazers instantly dress up a casual jeans outfit and make it look like you made an effort.
