Transition Your Wardrobe and Makeup for Spring

beauty, GEAR, style By April 28, 2024 1 Comment

I decided a few years ago to embrace this time of year. It is the gateway to spring, and NOTHING makes me happier than spring. Brand new grass and buds on the trees, sweet smelling flowers and pastel bunny decor. It doesn’t get much better. (Well, until summer arrives and we are surrounded by all things lush and tropical, but that is an ENTIRELY different post…)

My Hiking Wake-up Call. It’s time for Contact Lenses

As a woman and a mother there are a few things that top my priority list.  One is health for the whole family – being active, having regular checkups and doing a mental health scan every so often.  The other big priority I have is to be a well-rounded, confident woman.  My kids need to see that.  I want to be a role model and inspiration.

Cool gifts for Mom

Unique Gifts for Mom

beauty, GEAR By December 3, 2019 5 Comments

This year I am laughing as I prepare this guide, as I can hardly think of anything!! I suppose that means it’s time for some self-care on my end! Having just been to Fiji helps a ton, and ideas are finally flooding as I type. Because moms deserve to feel special – even if it takes a bit of convincing for them to believe it. Maybe you can add some in the comments as well, but here are 10 unique gifts for mom!

8 Ways Aging Has Made Me Better

beauty, fitness, self By September 17, 2019 2 Comments

I try not to think about it, this aging business. It’s not easy. You think that the shock, after that first time you are called “Ma’am”, or when you realize the cute guy at the gym isn’t hitting on you (he’s trying to help you because you remind him of his mom) will wear off, and you won’t be quite as sensitive. You think that your skin will get thicker and you won’t notice. But you’re wrong.

Face the Holidays

beauty By December 19, 2017 No Comments

‘Tis the season for holiday parties and holiday makeup. Whether you’re heading out to a fancy soiree or hosting a potluck for neighbours, putting your best face forward is essential. The face that maybe hasn’t had a good night sleep since forever. The face that is stressed by all the holiday obligations but still secretly enjoys every second of the merry madness.

Advent Calendar

Playing Around with Advent

beauty, GEAR By November 23, 2017 No Comments

The Body Shop has long been known for not testing products on animals, but they are so much more! Body butters, luxury spa quality products, and true innovations are also part of their lineup. This year, with a ‘spa of the world’ mantra, they have introduced firming products like a French grapeseed scrub and Ethiopian green coffee cream. I am holding my breath for their insanely fun play-based advent calendars packed with all of the hottest products of the year. The holiday gifts and sets are perfect gifts for teachers, friends, moms, dads and everyone who loves self-care and good quality product.

Boogie Wipes for the Win!

beauty, GEAR By October 27, 2017 No Comments

Life is messy. Kids are super messy. Even though my babies have moved to the triple-digit month counts – you know, she’s 111 months old – I am still floored by the disasters they create when eating food, blowing their noses, and just living life in general. If you think once your wee one can walk, run, or say, even drive, that your messy days are past, you’re mistaken!
