BRONZED FOR SUMMER

It’s finally Summer – all you need is a little glow!  I’m definitely still vitamin D deprived, but it’s easy to achieve that bronzed look with these Clarins finds! Step 1: Bronzing & Blush Compact (Limited Edition) –  Aside from the beautiful packaging (right?!) and the amazing light scent, this bronzer/blush is the perfect shade & does not look orange at application. I’m absolutely obsessed with it; brings life to my face & provides an amazing glow! It’s a big compact, so it will last you a long time. Well worth the $42! Step 2: 4-Color Eyeshadow Palette (Limited Edition): Burnt…

SPRING BEAUTY DISCOVERIES – PART 2

Part 2 was necessary b/c since Part 1, I discovered some absolute MUST HAVES! So without further a-do…. 1- Joe Fresh Makeup Collection: Truth be told, I didn’t even know Joe Fresh did makeup, so I was pleasantly surprised to stumble upon this collection! My favourite products by far were the compact eyeshadows – rich pigmented colors, & powdery texture which easily glide on the eyelid like butter & blend together perfectly.  They retails for $6 each and they’re availably at Pharmaprix (another thing to binge on when I head over there for drugs – oh who am I kidding, I’m mostly…

SPRING BEAUTY DISCOVERIES – PART 1

I don’t know about you, but I get all giddy when I get a new lipstick or a new eyeshadow palette! The only problem with getting something I LOVE is the fact that I cannot get enough of it so I use & abuse it until it’s gone (sounds horrible when I read this out loud, lol)! I’m one of those people who can’t keep a nice looking palette b/c like 1-2 colors are almost gone! Well, that’s me and I like to think that if you love it, use it  – why let a pretty thing go to waste? ;)…

SALON DEAUVILLE

6 months since I last coloured and cut my hair, needless to say I was in need of help! Luckily, I have some great Facebook friends who shared some of their recommendations and I decided to try out Salon Deauville ! 1st impressions are everything & Deauville surely delivered: great location with parking – check! It’s hard to find a salon with parking nowadays, without scrambling to find a spot or paying more than the price of a haircut (lol, ok a little over-exaggeration but seriously, it’s bad out there). Behind the golden doors it’s a whole other surprise! A stunning open…

WINTER HYDRATION – HEAD TO TOE KIT

It’s no big secret that our skin gets dry in the winter b/c of the change in temperature, especially during icy cold conditions. And of course, stress & pollution don’t help! I have normal skin, but in winter, it’s a whole different ball game. One day I’m perfectly hydrated and the next my face looks like a prune (true story!) I’ve tried many creams out there, and ususally it takes a few applications to see results. That’s until I tried the Hydra-Essentiel Silky Cream (Normal to Dry skin; $46) & The Hydra-Essential Bi-Phase Serum ($56) and I must admit that the…
