RIMMEL LASTING FINISH - KATE MOSS 11 LIPSTICK - Price - $$
I bought this lipstick at Shoppers Drug Mart the other day. I don’t often wear lipstick but my skin complexion looks best with a wine-like red painted on my lips. So I browsed a couple choices and decided on 11. It’s very pretty, doesn’t try my lips out and lasts significantly longer than most lipsticks I own.
I would recommend this lipstick for anyone looking for a nice softer touch of red without the dramatics.
GARAGE WHATEVER FOREVER MAXI DRESS - $15
CLAIRE’S RING OF DAISIES HEADWRAP - $8.50
I’m not much of a Garage shopper, most things are a little too “young” for me, but this was too perfect to pass up. I came across this lovely maxi dress while window shopping in the mall one afternoon and knew it had to be mine - a dress fit for a sassy queen. I love how comfortable and flowing it is. Unforunately the cool weather is coming, and I won’t get much use of it without being buried under layers, but it’s a much loved piece of my (still packed in suitcases) wardrobe!
This is something that I’ve wanted to address for a while. I’ve received tons of messages, DMs, emails, text messages, phone calls and answered to multiple 20-question type games with lots of inquiries, comments, compliments, concerns and curiosity. Going forward, I’d like to make this section of the blog not only a continuation of my journey but a definite how-to and inspiration station for women (who knows, maybe even men!) who were and are going through the same struggles I’ve been dealing with for years.
Growing up, I was a very picky-eater and a tall lanky bean pole. But genetics didn’t play well in my favour and like many young adults these days.. I turned to food for a source of comfort from the stresses of everyday life. In retrospect, I wish I hadn’t. I struggled for years with not feeling comfortable with my body and slowly became more and more depressed and continued eating. A vicious cycle.

I’m horrible at keeping myself warm in the winter and since I moved to New Brunswick a month ago (just in time for the cool weather and yes, it snowed today) I figured it was a good idea to do some fashionable research. I did some browsing on bigcartel and picked my top 5 cool sweaters (and one beanie!) to keep warm this winter season.
Flipping through my book of the past, I’ve noticed I’ve had numerous attempts with a blog project. Either the timing never seems to be right or my heart just isn’t in it. Or maybe I’ve always just been more than a little afraid to socially invest myself into something being the cookie cutter hermit commitment phobe that I am. Writing helps me draw conclusions and understand logic when i’ve felt weird, awkward and insecure.
And I couldn’t pick more effective words to describe how I’ve felt my entire life. What I portray may be one thing, but how I feel is another. However, there have been many things I am always sure about: I love to write, to feel creative and to be inspired. I want to inspire creativity, happiness, reality and lots of writing.
I chose the name lion heart and me. To be a lionheart, by definition, is to be considered ‘extremely extraordinarily courageous' which is everything I am trying to be. I'm working on that and will have to see where it goes. This is a place for all of my relevant (or irrelevant) thoughts, stories, inquiries and conversation.
