Enough is enough! My nighttime snacking has gotten to be WAYYY too much! I need to do something about it so here I am enlisting my loving readers to keep my on track.
I always say if I write it down I can do it. If I tell other people.. I can't let them down. So here I am.
Starting tonight I will absolutely NOT be eating past 9pm (other than 0 pt foods which are fruit/veggies) for 30 days straight. Like I've said in the past when you do something for 30 days straight you are developing a habit. I need this habit to stick!

We are back with some more beauty questions! Remember... you ask.. we answer! Please submit your questions to either of us directly, through the comments or by sending us an email (which can be found under "About Us".
Here we go!
Has reading a review ever changed your mind about a product?
S: All the time. I very rarely will buy anything without reading a review of the product. It's good to see what others think and see how others are using the product.
J: It definitely has, I often check out reviews before purchasing a new product. Generally if there are not many reviews done yet I'll go buy it no matter what people are saying. If it's a highly popular item with mixed reviews I'll also go try it. However if it has lots of negative reviews and it's a highly popular product I'll save my money, and research other options.
Do you polish your toes in winter or just in the summer?
S: Year round! Gotta keep those toes looking pretty! I'm also not afraid to bust out the bright colours in the winter.
J: All year long baby! I do like to give my toes nails a break from time to time, but it's not often.
How long does it take for you to put on your make-up?
S: About 5 minutes. Im pretty quick and have the same routine every day. If I'm going somewhere special I'll take the extra time and average about 10-15 minutes.
J: Approximately 20 minutes for my everyday face, all my time is spent covering pigmentation. I don't smother my face in makeup, I focus on just the areas that need it and it takes longer than just covering all areas.
What is your best beauty tip?
S: If you love something don't waste money trying tons of other products. I have spent HUNDREDS on face products and the one that truly works for me is incredibly affordable and found at pretty much any medium sized mall in Canada. I love body shop!
That goes for Mascara too! Nothing compares to my Buxom Lash! NOTHING!!
J: Less is more!
Thanks so much for reading and we look forward to your questions!
Until next time,
Steph & Jenn

I hope you all had a lovely summer and welcome this amazing fall season! I have to admit.. I love fall more than any other month and feel content just walking around smelling the crispy fall air in the evenings. The smell of bonfires, sound of leaves crackling, watching the leaves change colour, hoodies, scarves and cute boots! I couldn't and wouldn't want to go without it!
Anyways! I wanted to put out a post encouraging you all to try a 30 day challenge! This can be ANYTHING. It can be related to fitness, health, staying positive, reading more, becoming more involved with your friends and family.. you decide!
I started the 30 Day Squat Challenge with one of my best friends recently and am currently on day 11. Damn, my booty is killing me!! But you know what I've found? I'm more inclined to get myself to the gym, I'm more motivated to stay on track with my eating habits and I feel better in general. 1-10 minutes per day over the course of a month has brought so much motivation into my life!
Here are a few options to get you started. Remember if you start today you'll be all set to start a new one on November 1st ;).
Or if you're just starting out with the challenges...
Please share if you've started or are doing a 30 day challenge! I'd love to hear about it!
Thanks for reading and don't forget to stay motivated!
