Beauty Must-Haves from Shoppers Drug Mart Top Picks

|

Last weekend I went to CF Toronto Eaton Centre to check out an activation held by Shoppers Drug Mart to support its Top Picks in the beauty category. You might’ve seen some of the buzz around it already but I shared photos on social media here, here and here.  

Until October 7, Shoppers Drug Mart is hosting a great in-store event featuring their Top Picks, categorized as Top Sellers, Hidden Gems and New Finds. The best part? You can earn BONUS Shoppers Optimum Points if you purchase items from the list. That’s always a win in my books.

Perfect Fragrances for Fall

|

Out of the five senses we all have, smell is definitely my strongest one. I can smell something from a distance and take a pretty good hint at what it could be. Some say it's a gift, but of course... that depends on what the smell is! I even have names for certain scents such as the "outside smell" or "rain smell". I know, I'm a weirdo.

Since I'm so in touch with that sensory of mine, fragrance is a very important, personal thing to me. I wear a different perfume almost daily and it is all dependent on what I'm doing that day, where I'm going and how the weather is outside.

I'm sharing my four favourite fragrances that will be on repeat this fall - continue reading to find out which ones I'm loving!

Everyday Makeup Look for Fall

|

As we start to face chilly mornings and less sunlight, there isn’t much that I like to do except snuggle during my downtime with good books and delicious coffee. While I love to do my makeup and put on as much highlight as possible, most days I enjoy keeping my look simple and elegant for the office.

I’ve partnered with Yves Rocher to show you an easy breezy everyday makeup look that is perfect for fall! You can add your own touches and make it suitable for work (or school if you’re a student). I’m so excited to be a brand ambassador for Yves Rocher; the brand’s passion for botanical beauty and a healthy, green environment are two factors that really stood out to me. We’ve got a lot of great content planned for you – stay tuned as we unveil it all!

Chill Zone Makeup Look

Whoa. The minute I came across the shade "Chill Zone" by Smashbox Cosmetics, I knew two things: 1) it's different from anything else in my collection and, 2) I had to create a look using it immediately!

Lipidol: Oils for Daily Skincare

|

One of the most frequent questions I get asked is if my makeup or skincare routine changes throughout the seasons... and the answer is YES. Weather can have such a huge impact on how your skin reacts in the heat or cold, and it can also inspire the type of looks you want to go with.

A big trend that I've been following but have been scared to try are beauty oils. For the longest time I avoided oils, mainly because I thought they were too messy and didn't know how to apply them properly. Just a few years ago I welcomed hair oils into my life, and have never looked back.

Recently I've been hearing great things about cleansing and moisturizing oils, specifically Lipidol (from the makers of Bio-Oil). In order to keep my skin hydrated during the colder months, I've decided to test them out and walk you through some benefits of their products.

Wear Your #DesignerSmile With Confidence

It’s hard to believe that summer is coming to an end soon. My husband and I are trying to make the most of our last few weeks before chilly nights start to get in the way!

We made a pact to explore the city as much as we could, so we got new bikes at the beginning of the season and have put them to very good use. I’m happy to report that we’ve done everything you plan to do during the summer months including BBQ dinners, weekend getaway to the cottage with friends, a lot of ice cream dates and a fun little picnic with my adorable niece. Thanks to Colgate* Optic WhiteTM/MC, I was able to wear my #DesignerSmile through it all.
