Taking the Plunge: The Launch of Product Reviews on Sahar’s Blog

As a writer and blogger, I have always been told to write about my passions and what I know. What I am at my core is a Bahá’í who believes that this world is transitory, a preparatory phase for the next world, much like our mother’s womb was transitory and meant to prepare us for… Read More Taking the Plunge: The Launch of Product Reviews on Sahar’s Blog

Product Review: The Honest Company’s Free Discovery Kits (Part 1 of 2)

When a company chooses, in the context of the current climate of distrust towards all things corporation, to use the word “honest” in their name, either they are supremely arrogant or they are extremely dedicated to creating a new kind of corporate culture. The overall feeling one gets from The Honest Company’s website is one… Read More Product Review: The Honest Company’s Free Discovery Kits (Part 1 of 2)

Product Review: Blank Cards, Thank You Cards, and Note Cards

A little over a year ago, I wrote a piece on how cards can help build a stronger community. Pleasantries, I wrote, “have been previously defined on this blog as the hydrogen bonds of community building” which although “are not in themselves strong enough to hold a molecule together, but can still change the properties… Read More Product Review: Blank Cards, Thank You Cards, and Note Cards

Product Review: Carrington Farms’ Virgin, Cold-Pressed, Organic Coconut Oil

It often feels like we in North American are caught in the middle of a coconut craze, and I have to admit, what with the number of personal anecdotes that abound, that it isn’t without reason.  While I don’t think anything is a magical cure-all, there are many great uses to coconut oil that warrants… Read More Product Review: Carrington Farms’ Virgin, Cold-Pressed, Organic Coconut Oil

Product Review: Burt’s Bees Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Cream

The long an often arduous Canadian winters make moisturizers for every part of one’s skin an essential part of one’s personal hygiene regimen.  I’m sure a couple of tons of the stuff is slathered on every winter in a desperate attempt to avoid the discomfort of tightening dry skin.

Product Review: ‘Le Pavillion’ Tumbler by Kate Spade

I love most of the designs I have up to now spotted, over the last few years, on the Kate Spade website.  Alongside the ‘This Just In’ sticky note set, which I recently I reviewed, I purchased a ‘Le Pavillion’ white polka dot on black background insulated tumbler, which comes with a bright pink straw. … Read More Product Review: ‘Le Pavillion’ Tumbler by Kate Spade

Product Review Nine Inspirational Prints from Three Etsy Stores

Mantras have been a large part of my personal development tool kit for quite some time.  I’ve discussed them a few times on this blog over the last few years as a way for example to deal with the ego, as a way of faking it until you make it, and as a way of… Read More Product Review Nine Inspirational Prints from Three Etsy Stores

Product Review: The March 2016 Glam Bag by Ipsy

Everyone loves getting mail (except for bills and paperwork, of course…) and most girls love trying out new beauty products.  And in a world where so much is geared to go increasingly faster, finding time to just sit and enjoy opening mail can add quite a ray of sunshine to one’s day. For these reasons… Read More Product Review: The March 2016 Glam Bag by Ipsy
