Parenting Product Review: Solly Wrap

I strongly believe that, as consumers, every economic decision we make leave a moral trace behind it.  As a parent, I strongly believe that every purchase made for our children influences them from the very beginning of their lives, long before they understand the concept of “shopping”. It hasn’t been easy or always possible to… Read More Parenting Product Review: Solly Wrap

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: 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. Which makes it all the more… Read More Product Review: Burt’s Bees Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Cream

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: 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

Product Review: Moleskine Hard Cover Ruled Large Notebooks (Part 1 of 2)

Since reading about my love for journals, many Sahar’s Blog readers have reached out to me to ask me about the ones I use.  Others reached out to share thoughts about the journals they prefer to read.  While I listed three types that readers and I love, many readers wanted more information about each option—so… Read More Product Review: Moleskine Hard Cover Ruled Large Notebooks (Part 1 of 2)

Product Review: ‘This Just In’ Sticky Note Set, by Kate Spade

I have to admit that I have been lusting over Kate Spade stationary ever since I discovered the brand. As a writer, I focused my attention over their notebooks and sticky notes. When their This Just In sticky note set went on sale, I swooped in and got myself one, sure that I was getting… Read More Product Review: ‘This Just In’ Sticky Note Set, by Kate Spade

Product Review: Bioré Baking Soda VoxBox (Part 1 of 2)

It’s been an interesting road up to this post, my first review in my newly relaunched product review feature. I’m trying to see things differently—to look at products with a mindset defined by questions such as: is this product good for my personal development? Is it going to somehow contribute to the positive growth of… Read More Product Review: Bioré Baking Soda VoxBox (Part 1 of 2)
