    Process Post #8: Final Stretch

    It’s that time of year again. Final stretch until the end of the semester and if all goes well, hopefully this would be my last one! This semester I decided to finish my classes as well as continue working full time. At first everyone thought I was crazy, taking a full course load as well as working full time but I knew I wanted to finish ASAP. With two publishing courses and one online Contemporary Arts course, this semester has felt manageable until this week. This has been a crazy week for me at work and I started to fall behind. Knowing that I had a couple of late assignments…

    Process Post #7: #FacebookDown

    Ahhhhh it happened! Social media has crashed on us! Well only maybe for a few hours but it was really interesting to see everyone’s reactions and comments during #FacebookDown and #InstagramDown. Although having these applications down surprisingly didn’t affect me too much, for others it was like the apocalypse (this will be a great topic to discuss in lecture on Tuesday). On Wednesday, March 13th Facebook and all of the applications it owns Messenger, Instagram, Whatsapp were all experiencing an outage. I first discovered something was wrong when I was trying to send my friend a photo via Messenger. It kept telling me there was an error even though my…

You are suppose to cleanse, tone, essence, serums, and then moisturize. After cleaning and toner the skin, it may still feel…

    What’s exfoliating?

    Another important step in your skin care routine should be exfoliation! What is it? Exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells from your skin. There are different types and levels of exfoliation such as physical or chemical exfoliants up to medical peels and such. Exfoliation will help your skin get a deep cleanse, make your skin glow and help make your skin care products work better! My general rule for exfoliating is to exfoliate 2 – 3 times a week, depending on your skin type, you definitely do not want to over exfoliate! This would cause your skin to be very dry and could damage your skin. I generally like to…

    Process Post #6: Audience

    For this process post I am going to use a prompt that was suggested for week 6. “What audience have you been imagining thus far? How has that imagined audience informed your design and editorial decisions?” The audience I imagine looking at my blog are people who are wanting to learn more about skin care and have no idea where to start. I imagine these people to be ages 18 – 30, this is because of the skin care products that I talk about and review. Also, some of the products I like to use are pricier, so I imagine an audience that is able and willing to spend a…

    Peer Review #2: The Kindness Lifestyle

    This week for my peer review, I am reviewing Megan’s Blog, “The Kindness Lifestyle” A blog about spreading kindness and doing small things to help encourage kindness in our daily lives. At first glance, I really liked Megan’s page. The blog style matched the topic they were writing about, the colours were soft which was very welcoming and had a calmness to it. The typeface that they chose was also like a handwritten style, which made it the approach more personal and as a reader, more connected to the writer. Using the design elements that Mauvé Page showed us in class, Megan’s blog does a great job in showcasing these…

    Banila Co Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm

    A couple weeks ago, I did a big K-Beauty skin care haul from Cosmetic Love (use this link for 10% off!) and everything had finally arrived! One of the products I was really excited to try was the Banila Co Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm. What is a cleansing balm? A cleansing balm is an oil based cleanser that is targeted to help take off makeup, oils, SPF and such. It can also be used as the first step of double cleansing (more on this method later!). I was really excited to try this cleansing balm because I have heard great reviews. I also use waterproof eyeliner and mascara, which…

    Beauty Sleep

    What? You can take care of your skin while you’re sleeping? Sign me up! One of my best skin care secrets is a silk pillowcase! Not only is it good for your skin but also your hair. How does this make sense? Fabrics such as cotton for example are more absorbent, meaning they soak up moisture in your skin! But with a material like silk, it is not as absorbent, therefore you can still wake up with that glow! I find that with a silk pillow I can still feel my overnight masks and moisturizers on my skin in the morning. This goes the same for your hair, silk pillowcases…

    Process Post #5: Blogspiration

    One of my favourite blogs to follow is Chriselle Lim’s, The Chriselle Factor. She is an influencer, and blogger that focuses on fashion, beauty and lifestyle. I love following her day to day life through instagram and watching videos on her YouTube Channel. Whenever I visit Chriselle’s blog, it is generally on my phone, through instagram. I have always found her website easy to navigate and great to look at. I feel like her blog is always changing. What I really enjoy about her blog is that it does not feel like a traditional blog. When you first arrive at the website, there is a giant splash image of her…
