Holiday Beauty Gift Guide: Everything Under $100

Oh, Christmas Tree! It's that time of the year again where we chit-chat about fun gift ideas for the beauty lover in your life. I always get excited about making these lists because it's my time to share what I've loved throughout the year that I feel would make an excellent gift for a special someone, a friend or even a family member!

This Holiday Beauty Gift Guide includes five ideas including makeup and skincare items, as well as a special kit that any man would love, and a little something for your furry friend. The best part: everything on this list is under $100! I promise that all items have been tested and I would not be sharing them with you if I didn't love them myself. Here we go!


Tips for the Best Beauty Sleep (+ giveaway)

I think I'm a night owl. While I do enjoy going to work every morning and planning out what I need to tackle for the day/week/month, sometimes I feel that I'm truly most productive in the evenings. Even throughout the week, right when I get into the groove of waking up early (...usually by Wednesday), Saturday rolls around and I just want to stay in bed until I find energy to pull myself out. Raise your hand if you also feel this way!

A couple of weeks ago Refresh Botanicals invited me to spend a night at Templar Hotel (348 Adelaide St W, Toronto), and practice some tips that I should incorporate into my night-time routine, so that I can sleep peacefully and get up the next day feeling well-rested and happy.


Fall Beauty Favourites

There is something about autumn that truly brings out the "busy"ness of everyone. A lot of things happen around this time of year: back to school planning, Thanksgiving, Halloween and then Christmas starts to creep up!

Regardless, I wanted to share a little roundup of beauty products I have been using and loving over the last couple of months.
