DAVID D’AMOURS PRIVE

A private VIP experience at David D’Amours Privé salon that resulted in fab hair with amazing volume & the most perfect curls, courtesy of Judith Charpenier – what else can I girl as for? I was invited to try out the new Kérastase fusio-dose treatment at 8:45am on a Monday morning, when the salon open its doors just for me! (Can it get more VIP than this?) The salon is a beautiful urban & trendy space located in the middle of Old Port. I was taken aback by the decor, but even more so by the service! Everyone was amazing &…

NIOXIN

So, my hair is straight naturally. I’m not going to complain b/c it’s very easy to maintain: I wash it, dry it in 5 & I’m out the door! But, it’s also very thin & dry so it usually needs a bit of TLC to get some volume & moisture. Not to mention that given its thinness, it gets greasy fast so I wash it often (which is a vicious circle). Although, I am trying to break this habit and wash it every other day…we’ll see if I succeed. So far, I’ve been doing so-so, lol. Anyways, I welcome new hair…

JOUVIANCE HOLIDAY MAKEUP

It’s a rare occasion that I leave the house without makeup. Some may call me high maintenance, but I call it a self confidence booster! There is nothing better than nice clothes and good makeup to make a women feel like she can conquer the world! And the holidays are no exception, in fact, this is the time to go bold. I love a red lip for the holidays and no night time look is complete without a smokey eye. This holiday season, it’s my 1st time trying out the Jouviance brand. What I love about the company is that…

JACYNTHE RENE BEAUTY PRODUCTS – 100% NATURAL

I turned the dreaded big 3-0 at the end of October, and I was looking for a new beauty routine for nighttime. Like the rest of women on this planet, I’m terrified of wrinkles, even though some people still think I’m 19-21 lol! I just want to keep looking that young for a while ;) Needless to say, I welcomed Jacynthe Rene’s beauty routine with open arms, as I was intrigued by the cool apothecary look & the fact that the products are 100 % natural; no preservatives, no fragrance, no chemicals & not tested on animals! I tried the…

SEPHORA HOLIDAY GIFT SETS REVIEW

Sephora does makeup like it’s nobody’s business! It’s the 1st time I tried Sephora Collection brand eye shadows and I must admit the quality is impeccable! Not to mention the packaging – cuteness overload! But let’s back up to the beginning when I came back home from Vegas to a huge box filled with Sephora goodies to try out and review! The timing could not be more perfect since it was my bday :) and of course I felt like a kid on Christmas day opening it! Honestly, getting makeup makes a girl giddy! I had already presented some of…

ANNIE YOUNG COSMETIQUES

I admire strong, hard working women! I watched my mom raise me & my sister by herself in a foreign country, where she did not know the language yet provided for us nevertheless, making sure we are fed, clothed & got the best education. She also taught us an amazing set of values; be kind, be independent, be strong, be humble. In my eyes she is a hero, an idol, someone I strive to be everyday. She, and so many other independent, strong working women are the reason I write this blog. Faith took its course a few weeks ago, when I 1st stepped…

CHRISTMAS WITH SEPHORA

So you might be thinking, oh its just November, but Christmas is not that far away! Until last year, I always got my Christmas gifts (including me to me gifts, lol) last minute and I always seem to face the same hurdles: line ups & products being out of stock (which is already the case right now with some things online)! Last year I took a stance and decide to have an early start & shop everything almost two months ahead! When I found something adorable or something I knew my family or friends (or myself….) loved or wanted to get…
