Look, Valentine’s Day is okay. I don’t love it, I don’t hate it. I enjoy doing something small that says to my husband “Hey. You’re pretty great and I love you and all that” without going all out with some kind of romantic comedy gesture that is too over the top and hideously expensive. It usually involves a funny card and some kind of chocolate (peanut m&ms feature more often than not since they are his favourite, unless I have time to bake something gooey and chocolatey that we will both enjoy). With the card, I always try to get something that is funny and revolves heavily around a pun of some kind because puns always make greeting cards better. Puns make most things better, though, don’t they?
So if you are like me and try to avoid those mushy hearts and flowers and overly pink and red cards with awful poems in them like the plague, then these glorious cards I’ve found all over the internet are for you!

I’m not a big cake person, for a number of reasons. If it’s a sponge cake, it’s the texture that I don’t enjoy. If it’s a black forest cake, it’s all that cream and stuff. If it’s a really dense mud cake, then it’s too rich for me. There are a select few cakes I… Continue reading ->

I bought a few new-to-me products in December, one online, two at Sephora (YAY! I finally went!), and one from Lush, so over the past month I’ve been enjoying the spoils of new skincare and make up, which is always a good thing.
You guys! I’m going to attempt to do my Road to the Oscars series again by watching and reviewing all eight of the 2016 Best Picture Oscar nominees. I’ve already seen two of them, so I feel this is a very achievable goal! The nominees are: My first review will go live later this week,… Continue reading ->
I don’t watch a lot of foreign films, and if I do they’re generally French, because my husband is Mauritian and speaks French, so that’s what we gravitate towards. Before Christmas, my mum and sister were telling us about a film they had seen and said it was well worth checking out while it’s on… Continue reading ->
Yay, it’s award season! I feel like the Golden Globes always sneak up on me. Like, it’s Christmas, then New Year’s Eve, then you’re recovering from eating too much, then you’re back at work, then BOOM. A bunch of celebs are getting dressed up and drunk in a hotel function room. It’s just such fun… Continue reading ->
Having a sister who lives in Europe is a tremendously beneficial thing. I got surprised with the latest Urban Decay Smoky Palette at Christmas, which I hadn’t even asked her to buy for me! She was lucky enough to be in Barcelona recently (I know, right?) and visited the massive Sephora store there (seriously, Google… Continue reading ->

The finish line is in sighte, you’re SO close, can’t you just see the glass of champagne and your slippers waiting for you next to the couch on Christmas Eve? If you’re like me and… Continue reading ->
