Hey everyone!

Last week I saw some pretty inappropriate stuff IRL and felt the urge to share. It’s just not sitting right with me.

Watch video for a good laugh, thanks for reading!




Hey everyone, welcome back to the blog! Today I’m starting this series I’ve been sitting on for a while. As some of you may know, I attended cosmetology school back in 2012, so I mainly focused on hairdressing while also briefly learning about skin care, makeup & nails. I have always been so passionate about spreading knowledge, and I now feel like I can do that through this series. I’m going to be splitting this series up into 4 main topics, with various subtopics within each. So for all of you beginner beauty gurus, and hopeful hairdressers out there, sit back, relax and we’ll get started with our first topic: Skin Care.

I decided to start with skin care because even though I have talked about skin care in past videos, I haven’t gone in depth on different types of skin care. Skin care isn’t just about washing your face before you go to bed.

Our first sub-topic is Hair Removal. I love this because it’s quick and to the point! If you’ve ever wandered about permanent or temporary hair removal you’ve come to the right video!

So a lot of you may know that hair removal treatments are some of the fastest growing treatments in any salon or spa. This is not only because of it’s convenience and quick service, but it can be scheduled while an on-going service is being preformed on a client, such as yourself!

The most common form of hair removal in the salons for years was just plain old waxing, and I’m going to make a video just on waxing – but now that other innovative services are being introduced to the salon world, waxing isn’t the only option!

Let’s start with the most obvious question here, why study anything about hair removal? In our society removing unwanted hair is the most important concerns of us as consumers and as clients, both men and women – which means companies and salons have to keep up with our demand.

Educating yourself on different types of hair removal techniques and procedures will not only help you with at home adventures, but as well as what you want from your salon experience. And if you’re looking to get into cosmetology as a career, having an arsenal of knowledge doesn’t hurt.

FOR PROFESSIONALS: Before preforming any hair removal service, you must have a consultation with your client, whether it be a brief conversation or a client card you keep on record if they are a returning client. I won’t talk too much about this because it’s pretty much common sense, get an understanding of what your client wants so that you can execute it to the best of your ability. Learn about your client, their skin type, any medications they are taking (which could interfere with some services), and any at home skin care treatments. The reason I mention the medications is because some thin the skin and the skin can peel off WITH certain treatments. 

Let’s jump into the types of Permanent Hair Removal. Permanent hair removal isn’t usually offered in the run of the mill salon & spa, however it’ is useful to know what your options are as a consumer. There are three different types of permanent hair removal:

  1. Electrolysis: the removal of hair by electric current. This basically removes the hair by heat and electric current, destroying the growth of the cells of the hair.
  2.  Photoepilation: this removes several hairs at once by focusing an intense beam of light. This is successful because the pigment in the hair is converted into heat and destroys the stem cells responsible for hair growth.
  3.  Lazer Hair Removal: this involves a lazer beam pulsing on the skin to impair the hair growth. Coarse and dark hair responds best to this type of treatment.

Permanent hair removal can be kind of extreme for people- especially those with sensitive skin. Tons turn to temporary hair removal. These methods include:

  1. Tweezing, waxing and shaving which are the most common.
  2. Depilatories: which dissolve hair at the skins surface, think of any Nair products.
  3. Epilators: removes hair from the bottom of the follicle, so think of waxing and sugaring. The only difference is that wax requires the hair to be 6mm (1/4”) long and sugaring requires the hair to be 3mm (1/8”) long.
  4. Threading: using any sort of cotton thread to twist and roll around the surface of the skin, lifting the hair directly out of the follicle.

Well that brings us to the end of the first instalment in our Skin Care series. This post was to teach you a little about the hair removal process and different techniques you can have done or add to your arsenal. I hope you all gained a little bit of knowledge and that you are better equipped moving forward in your hair removal adventures.

I will see you guys next Saturday with part 2 in the Skin Care series, all about facials! I hope you guys stick around for that one.

Hello everyone and welcome back! I am happy to announce I am now three months cancer free! That kind of positivity is fueling me to make informational posts/videos like this. Today, we’re going to talk about medication, specifically: Synthroid.
If you’re like me, and approximately 200 million other men and women around the world who suffer from a thyroid condition, you’ve probably heard of the pill Synthroid or some other form of synthetic thyroid hormone. In Canada alone, every 1 in 10 people are affected by a thyroid condition, and at least half go undiagnosed and untreated. It’s heredetery, and even though more than four women in my family currently have some form of a thyroid problem, none have had cancer as I had.
I’ll go more into the science behind the thyroid in another video/post, but since my medication was finally stabilized I really wanted to focus on this topic today.
Synthroid is a man-made hormone to help counteract the effects of hypothyroidism or underactive thyroid. The main ingredient in this specific pill is Levothyroxine Sodium (the generic brand of Synthroid is simply called Levothyroxine). It is used to normalize and restore balance to the body. If taken properly that is.
Synthroid rages in dosages. Personally, I’ve taken even single one to finally get to where I am now. Your endo will pay around with doses until your body finally accepts it anf finally starts functioning normally once again. In the adjustment period, I’ve found that the symptoms are mainly; trouble getting to sleep, and then trouble waking up and staying awake, no appetite, and motion sickness that leads to dizziness and nausea. YOU play the biggest role in the process of your endo adjusting your medication. You need to be diligent when taking to ensure you and your endo have correct and accurate results. If you aren’t taking these properly, your body will hate you and start to not cooperate. In my experiences, not taking my pills makes me feel anxious and lethargic. Either that or I’ll sleep myself into a coma. It’s your responsibility to take this pill so you can work with your endo to recieve the correct doseage.
Synthroid comes in 12 different dosing options, ranging from 0.05mg to 0.03mg. and like I said your endo may play around with whatever works for you. For example. I started off with the 0.05, and within the year I went right up to 0.03 and now am taking 0.125 twice daily (once before bed and once first thing in the morning) to sporadically give me more energy throughout the day.
This brings me to my next topic, you must take synthroid on an empty stomach and within four hours of taking any other medication. Failing to do so will lower your bodys ability to absorb the pill properly.
So basically, with hypothyroidism your thyroid hormone is underactive, or too low. (Boooo!) This annoying little pill we have to take replaces all of the functions our thyroid did for us before! It helps to normalize and stabilize our thyroxone levels.
All in all, PLEASE remember to take your Synthroid, on an empty stomach! If you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comments below. Also, if you haven’t already, please share this post & video to someone who may need this information.
AND PLEASE, if you or anyone you know suspects a thyroid condition do NOT let it go overlooked. It can end more tragically than it needs to.

WTF is B.U.WHY? 


I’ve always wanted to do a random series on YouTube, just little episodes building or playing around with mundane things. Whilst wondering around the dollar store yesterday, I originally was looking for small jelly toys to cut open. Kids eat that shit up. Anyways, on the very bottom shelf of the childrens toy section, I saw these little bags with interesting looking vehicles on them. They felt very heavy to the touch, almost like a steel or metal. I was sold, these were going to start the series!

Upon bringing these home, the main focus was coming up with a name for my little “show” . I didn’t want anything generic or anything that was already taken, however I really liked the name “Worth It?”. Damn you BuzzFeed! Since this particular upload goes up on Sundays, we thought of Sunday Funday, one of the ideas was Building With Ash… I went back to the drawing board and just browsed my YouTube homepage for ideas.

A notification from Pinterest popped up in my notifications, it said “New D.I.Y Ideas For You…” and it clicked. D.I.Y… something that can be condensed into an acronym! I buy these items to build, use them to see what they are, and ask myself why did I buy these? Build it, Use it, Why did I do this?  When I pitched this idea to the boys, it was an immediate yes! It just sounds good when you say it! B.U.WHY?

In this video, the two little items I purchased essentially ended up being model go-karts. These are definitely good for the little engineer in you. I’m 23 years old and found great enjoyment building these. They end up looking just like the video, but the instructions are good for nothing. Also, if you have sausage fingers, like me, it’s just a little bit more of an added challenge. 😉

I’m going to link the video here CLICK ME because I’ve added a giveaway to the video. To enter the giveaway, all you have to do is be subscribed to me and leave a comment on that particular video of your favorite emoji. {EXAMPLE: 👽} I will pick a winer by Friday January 20, 2017 @8pm. Giveaway is open anywhere, as long as you follow the rules accordingly. Good luck!

Thanks for reading, thanks for watching – a new episode of B.U.WHY? is out every Sunday! As well as my Tuesday & Friday videos! Like & subscribe and tell me what you think!

Lush Bath Bomb Demo – “Shoot For The Stars”



I had always walked by Lush and complained that “this store gives me a headache”! However, once I actually sucked it up and walked in, I was bombarded by the most delectable scents. I was relaxed.

I have an extremely hard time calming down and relaxing. For me to lay in bed and fall asleep takes ages, but the second I sat in that bathtub, the sweet smelling steamy water hugged my body and I was ready for a nap.

A beautiful mixture of blues, with peek-a-boo gold stars around the top – leaves the bathtub feeling like you’ve just stepped into the role of Ariel. With feet of course.

For the first bath bomb I’ve purchased, and used – I give this one a definite 10/10, for smell, color and cleanup – none of the glitter stuck to the tub! I definitely recommend for someone who is just getting into the bath bomb craze.
