My Gym Bag Essentials

My Gym Bag Essentials | Sara du Jour

When it comes to sticking to a fitness regimen, it helps to have the right gear. I know that for me, if my fitness gear is cute, I’m excited to use it and that helps me stay motivated. If you’re striving to keep to your New Year’s resolution to exercise more frequently (or at all), packing your gym bag essentials the night before makes it easier to grab it and go the next morning. And that’s means you have one less excuse to make the day-of!

I am the opposite of a morning person, so I go to the gym straight from work a few days a week. Here’s what I typically pack: (more…)

Holiday Gift Guide: for the Homebody

Holiday Gift Guide 2015: for the Homebody | Sara du Jour

I am a self-professed homebody. There are few things I like better than sleeping in and enjoying a lovely day at home, cozied up in pajamas with a cup of tea and Netflix.

Whether you’re looking for gift ideas for a homebody, or simply want to pick up a few nice goodies for yourself this December, here’s a holiday gift guide with all my favourite picks to unwind and pamper.

Loving Lately: September/October 2015

Sara du Jour: Loving Lately - September/October 2015

I confess, I’m a bit nosey. I absolutely love watching or reading other peoples’ monthly favourites, and discovering great new products and things. It seems only fair that I should share some of my own in return. When I get excited about something – whether it’s a new beauty product, a favourite food, or a show I’ve been obsessing over – I like to share it with everyone I know. If you follow me on instagram, you’ve already had a peek at some of these!

So without any further ado: here’s an extensive list of things I’ve been loving lately. It’s quite long, so feel free to grab a snack or something, and then settle in to scroll. Don’t worry, I’ve sorted it into categories.  (more…)

Loving Lately: Beauty Edition

Recent Beauty Favorites | Sara du Jour
Oh, how I’ve missed you all! To those of you who have been begging me to re-enter the blogging world, thank you. It meant so much to me that you missed my posts. I’ve had a beautiful few months away from the interwebs (though I was still active on twitter and instagram) but I’m back now! I can’t promise that I’ll be posting super frequently, as I don’t want to go back to where I was before – feeling like blogging was a chore I had to do that ate up much of my free time. I want to blog because it brings me joy, simple as that.

With all of that said, here are a few beauty products I’ve been thoroughly enjoying these last few months, from face products to lip products to beauty tools! (more…)
