Little Sarah Birch

Welcome To Little Sarah Birch

Who am I?  I’m a mother, a wife, Maritimer, a former lawyer, and a self-proclaimed adventurer who goes by Sarah.  I’m not funny per se, but I get myself into funny situations that create humour in my life.  I believe that everyone has a story to tell; this blog will be home to my story.

Best “clean” skincare & makeup products (for me)

Best “clean” skincare & makeup products (for me)

Remember that time when I became a dermatologist and makeup artist? You don't? Oh wait, that's because I'm neither of those things. You may argue that I have no business writing about my favourite "clean" skincare & makeup products, but I disagree. While my...

What To Do in Saint John, NB

What To Do in Saint John, NB

“The John” is such an unfortunate nickname for my hometown of Saint John, NB.  Leave it to us “Johners” to come up with a name that’s not at all representative of the flourishing and beautiful city that it is! As a Saint John native, I had a wonderful childhood...
