Anti-Aging Skincare Simplified with IDC

|

Your skincare routine can be as complicated or simple as you choose for it to be. As I get older, I often think about giving my skin a detox or being less harsh with the different types of products or chemicals I use on a daily basis. Now available at beautyBOUTIQUE.caIDC (Integral Dermo Correction), a Canadian company, has simplified the anti-aging process for us by producing a line of skincare that is easy to use, customizable based on your needs and provides effective results!

All the Nudes! OPI Infinite Shine Summer 2016

|

Bright colours, bold prints, pastel shades. That's what we usually think of when summer comes to mind. However, after seeing a lot of neutral on the runway for spring/summer, OPI came out with the Infinite Shine Summer 2016 collection, which features six stunning neutral shades ranging from light pinks to beige, as well as a couple of nude colours with a hint of yellow and brown.

Jamesie's Almond Date Scones

|

Last weekend I woke up to my condo smelling like sweet cinnamon and baking; I knew James was up to something! He spent the morning baking these delicious almond date scones, a recipe he dreamed up and brought to life. We were both so pleased with how they turned out, we decided to make them again a couple of days ago!

I'd happily invite you over to come and share a batch with us, but they never last! These soft, buttery balls of baked dough are easy to make and an absolute treat to share with a group of friends.

First Impression of THEFACESHOP's CC Intense Cover Cushion

|

The cushion foundation has been SO popular in the beauty community this summer and that only meant one thing: I had try it.

I've been using skincare products from THEFACESHOP for years now but didn't get an opportunity to explore the makeup line until now. The brand recently came out with a series of cushion foundations including the one that I tested this week called CC Intense Cover Cushion!

Well, this is a little awkward. You thought you clicked the wrong blog, didn't you?

I promise, it's still me here, Anum from SummerxSkin. I'm super excited to introduce a new category today and it's going to be all about FOOD. Every Friday, you can come here to find a new recipe that has been tried, tasted, touched up and perfected. Maybe we can call it Food Friday? TGIFood? I'll try to think of a better name...

To be completely transparent, I originally started this blog thinking it would be a great way for me to teach myself how to cook and share my learnings with you. Of course that didn't work out as planned and instead, I eventually married my husband who is an INCREDIBLE cook. He prepares almost 100% of our meals, but I've always been the better baker (shh, don't tell him that). It works out well because he will make dinner and I sweeten things up with dessert! He'll be helping me with this series and together, we will share AWESOME recipes with you + tips and tricks from the expert himself. Let me know what you think of the first one!

Four years ago I started this little space on the Internet...and I've never looked back! I didn't know what it could do for my career or where it would take me but now I can happily say that this is where I belong.
