Hi! I'm Bailey. I'm thirty-something, living in Ontario, Canada with my diluted calico Igby. I am educated in Library and Information Sciences and Adult Education/Literacy fields, but am currently self employed. When I'm not blogging or fully immersed in trying every nail polish ever bottled, I enjoy reading, collecting vinyl records and drawing/painting. I love the colour grey, mint-chocolate everything, typography, cats and clouds.


Initially started many years ago with no purpose (and scrapped, many times) I eventually started posting product reviews about three years ago and morphed into a beauty and lifestyle blog. I will admit that I didn't exactly know what I was doing in the beginning, but as I've found my footing, I also found a community of amazing readers and fellow bloggers who make it all worth while. My day seriously isn't complete until I've caught up on my daily blog reads.

Most of my posts are beauty/skincare related (again, with a side order of nail polish.) Areas I will never claim to be the utmost authority of, but I do have a passion for and have tried my fair share of every type of product. I will try anything once and give the lowdown of what works for me and what doesn't. From time to time fashion, accessories and the odd recipe or two make appearance as well. After all, spice of life and what not...

I write how I talk, and yes, it can get a bit off topic, but I don't believe any reader wants to read overly structured, dry content. If you were my best friend (hey, Kyley!) I'd have the same conversations with you. My reviews are conversational and light- makeup is meant to be fun!
