My Obsession Monday: Mini Friday by JW Pei Haul

Who doesn’t love a good crossbody bag? Friday by JW Pei has been creepin’ up on my Instagram for a few months and I finally went ahead and ordered a few items to see if the quality lived up to how the bags looked in pictures.

Friday by JW Pei is a sister brand of JW Pei and they offer vegan leather bags incorporating recycled plastic with sustainability in mind.

The first bag that caught my eye is their Camera Bag, which is, unfortunately, all sold out. Not sure if they’re bringing it back but I’ve always wanted a camera bag, just haven’t found one that fits both the price and look that I want until this. I love that this one has a pretty chevron stitching pattern. When I got it in the mail and tested out the bag, the zipper ran very smooth. The strap is detachable and adjustable in length which makes it very versatile. I also added the tassel ornament to the order so that it can add a bit more personality to the bag.

MV Organic Skincare Review

Hi lovelies!

I want to share with you a skincare product that has improved my life. Literally. Growing up, I’ve always had¬†a lot of challenges with my skin¬†and anyone who deals with any sort of skin troubles know that there are no easy fixes.

My skin struggled with eczema ever since I was young and I still struggle with it now and then as an adult.¬†I don’t want to get too in depth about what eczema is (there’s Google for that) but my skin gets red, irritated, inflamed, itchy and super duper dry. So as you can imagine, I’ve tried a lot of different medicated and non-medicated creams and products in hopes to find different ways to¬†soothe my skin. I know that there isn’t going to be a¬†product that will work miracles but even looking for a product that doesn’t irritate or cause a reaction on my skin is difficult.

On a side note, I’m generally a pretty healthy person – I exercise and eat well but I’m going to kick it up a few notches and be a health nut. This will definitely help improve my overall health but most importantly, my skin. I bought a juicer and will¬†start blogging about my journey to an even healthier lifestyle – stay tuned!

Now, back to MV Organics Skincare! One of my besties who also has hyper sensitive skin told me about this brand about a year ago. She raved about it as one of her favourite Youtubers, Estée Lalonde, highlighted this product in her 2015 Beauty Favorites! Best of the Best! video. Even though these products come with a STEEP price tag, I decided to give it a try! I made my way downtown to visit The Detox Market to check it out.

MV Organic Skincare Rose Plus Skin Booster ($130)

How I use this product: I mostly use this during dry winter months to give an extra boost to my skin. It’s gentle and gives extra moisture to my super dry skin. I like mixing this with the below moisturizer or use it directly on my skin when needed. I only put one or two drops as it is quite expensive for such a tiny little thing.

Pros: Calms my skin from skin irritations and gives my skin extra hydration.
