The Benefits of Rose Hip Oil

The Benefits of Rosehip Oil by Bewildered Bug

I’m really excited to tell you about Sukin certified organic rose hip oil.  If you’ve followed the blog, you know that I have complained about my skin many, many, many times…that’s cause I’m either horrible at taking care of my skin or my skin is just impossible.  Since moving to London, the hard water and added stresses have made my skin even MORE impossible.  It got to such a point that even my cousin (who makes homemade and all natural… Continue Reading “The Benefits of Rose Hip Oil”

Lessons Learnt from Toronto

Lessons learnt from Toronto by Bewildered Bug

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that a few weeks ago, I visited Toronto.  It was a great opportunity to get back to familiar places and experiences and to see so many of the people I miss.  I had familiar food, found myself in familiar haunting grounds (and even in some unfamiliar ones too) and I learnt a lot about myself.  It’s always said that you cannot truly see a situation until you step out of… Continue Reading “Lessons Learnt from Toronto”

Three of the vacation destinations on my bucket list

top vacation spots on my bucket list by Bewildered Bug

Do you have any dream vacation spots that you’d love to go on?  I’m sure you do – because although I’ve traveled a lot in my life, I definitely have some “bucket list” destinations on my list that I have yet to reach.  I am not sure when I’ll get to go to these places, but since many of them are on this side of the Atlantic, I’m going to try to take advantage of being here as soon as… Continue Reading “Three of the vacation destinations on my bucket list”

Please welcome Shari back to the blog to discuss the handpicked spring snacking from The Healthy Shopper.  As you know, she has a houseful of bouncing not-so-baby boys, so they definitely enjoy their food – and healthy snacks are on the top of her priority list.  Interestingly, when discussing the Healthy Shoppers Spring 2014 picks, Shari had come up with her own version of easy pad thai, and this Spring (2015), she’s added a twist to a basic pad thai… Continue Reading “Handpicked Spring Snacking from The Healthy Shopper”

Spa Hacks to help you relax (by Cassie)

Spa Hacks to Relax at home with Bewildered Bug

Living on your own has its advantages – including the ability to truly discover who you are and what you need without any distraction.  As much as it was difficult to live apart from the Luv Luv for the last 3 1/2 years (approx.), I think I needed it because I have figured out what I need from life to be happy, healthy and the best I can be.  One of those things is me-time and relax time – and… Continue Reading “Spa Hacks to help you relax (by Cassie)”

Tori Amos reissues Little Earthquakes - #win a copy from Bewildered Bug!

Are you a Tori Amos fan?  I have to say I am a bit of one – I’ve always been fascinated with her brutal honesty and amazing musical ability, from the first time I heard about her until now, that I’ve listened to most of her Reissues of “Little Earthquakes” and “Under the Pink”.  If you are a fan, these albums are above and beyond what you’ve heard before!

Sweet Memories…. with Swizzels Matlow

Sweet memories with Swizzels Matlow and Bewildered Bug

I was stumped on this post, I really was.  I was asked by the awesome people at Swizzels Matlow about my favourite #sweetmemories from childhood.  That is, do I have any awesome memories about candy (sweeties) from when I was a young ‘un.  I completely reached to the point in my ind that we never ate candy.  Then I decided to text my Mom – and she proved me wrong very rapidly.  There are quite a few candy stories throughout… Continue Reading “Sweet Memories…. with Swizzels Matlow”

Alternative uses of toothpaste by Bewildered Bug

The battle of the Benefit Mascaras by Birchbox

Birchbox mascara tutorial by Bewildered Bug

I’m a mascara girl – just in case you did not know.  If I had perfect skin, I would actually not wear any makeup other than a good mascara, and perhaps a touch of blush once in a while.  Shamefully, my skin is crap and the hard London water is killing it even more – so I end up piling on foundation and powder and then finally doing my mascara, blush and sometimes eyeliner and brow powder.  That’s a lot… Continue Reading “The battle of the Benefit Mascaras by Birchbox”

Inspirational Woman

Inspirational Women on International Women's Day 2015 by Bewildered Bug

Today is International Women’s Day 2015.  Today is the day that the world celebrates the spectacular history of inspirational women around the world.  The problem that I have with this is that the women who are celebrated are, more times than not, famous women – people like Maya Angelou, Vivienne Westwood, Margaret Thatcher, Indira Gandhi, Rosa Parks, Emmeline Pankhurst etc. etc. just to name a few.  These women are indeed spectacularly inspirational, but I thought it would be good to… Continue Reading “Inspirational Woman”
