My Daily Routine with Yves Rocher Hydra Vegetal

Tuesday, December 4, 2018

Throughout my pregnancy I’ve noticed a lot of body, facial and skin changes. From the baby bump growing to major nose swelling, and my skin going from normally being super dry around this time of year to more of a combination. Today I’m walking you through what my current daily routine looks like, and products from Yves Rocher that have been great for my skin!

A Much Needed Break at the Yves Rocher Eco-Hotel

Guest post by James Rubec

Authenticity is something that you can’t buy, however, authentic experiences are. When we left the fast-paced, busy world of Paris this past summer the team from Yves Rocher brought us to a pastoral wonderland, La Gree des Landes, Eco-Hotel Spa in La Gacilly.

Discovering La Gacilly with Yves Rocher

Tuesday, November 13, 2018

Out of all the trips we’ve been on through the years, France was a special one for both me and James. Not only did we get to see the Eiffel Tower, bike around Paris, hopscotch from one cafe to another… but we did it while pregnant AND got to experience the countryside of France that we wouldn’t have otherwise if it weren’t for Yves Rocher.

In case you missed it on Instagram, I'm so excited to *finally* share that we're expecting! The last 3-4 months have been a crazy rollercoaster of surprises, excitement, anxiousness and... nausea. However, we've enjoyed every little second with the little bebe growing in my belly!

Benefit Cosmetics Introduces More Lip Colours

Wednesday, May 16, 2018

A couple of years ago I randomly came across and bought this lip kit by Benefit Cosmetics; I genuinely find this brand to be innovative in products they launch. After sharing my first impression, I ended up reaching for a couple of shades way more than I thought -- Revved-Up Red was my jam for a while.

Since then Benefit Cosmetics sent over three new shades (at least new to me), and friends, I honestly think they have improved the formula + pigment by MILES since the first kit I tested! Continue for swatches and mini reviews of each shade.

Tips for Self-Care & Re-Energizing Yourself This Spring

Wednesday, April 18, 2018

Ever have those days (or weeks) where you can’t keep your focus or things don’t feel right? You’re definitely not alone. We all have fire and energy inside of us, and when we’re trying to accomplish so much on an everyday basis, sometimes that energy can burn out. I hear this is definitely the case during the cusp of seasonal change, too!

However, when this does happen, it’s important for us to acknowledge that it’s happening, take a step back and slowly begin again by doing a few things for yourself and what makes you, your mind and your body, happy. Here are three simple ways to help you re-energize or indulge in self-care in order to get back on track again.

Current Everyday Makeup Routine

Tuesday, March 27, 2018

I wish I could say I'm one of those gals who wakes up, and is basically ready to head out the door! Unless it's on the weekend where I'm off to get groceries or to the gym, my daily makeup routine includes a little bit of everything (brows, foundation, concealer, powder, mascara, bronzer, blush, a teeeny bit of highlight and of course, lipstick) all within the span of 30 minutes.

Review of Drybar Tress Press Digital Styling Iron

Tuesday, March 13, 2018

Back in November when I was packing for our mini trip to Quebec City, the WORST thing happened - my beloved straightener died on me; one that I had for almost 4-5 years. Fortunately, I had a backup one for the coming weeks but it didn't work that well.

Needless to say, it was something to keep my hair from looking like Ms. Frizzle until Christmas. Of course, this was the perfect opportunity for James to buy me a new straightener! I had a few on my wish list, and while the Drybar Tress Press Digital Styling Iron wasn't on top, it won my heart immediately.

My Evening Routine + Tips on Relaxing After a Big Day (+ giveaway)

Tuesday, February 6, 2018

I get a lot of questions about my skin, how I maintain it and what I do to stay hydrated and energized in the winter months. Having a routine has always been super important for me, and now I think I’ve finally perfected how I wind down for the evening before bed with tips that might help you!

Being Present and What It Can Do For You

Monday, January 22, 2018

One of my personal goals for this year is to slow down and be present.

We are often told that certain type of people can multi-task without fail, in fact, it is also a question HR usually asks when considering someone for a role. However, this isn't actually the case for anyone because it isn't easy to effectively attend to two things at once without the help of one of them being automated somehow (think working-from-home + laundry in the washing machine). Instead, what we are capable of is handling a number of tasks and completing them, one by one, as quickly as possible.

Best of Beauty 2017

Monday, January 15, 2018

Over the year I test and play with A LOT of makeup on a daily basis, adjust my routine as I discover new products, and find favourites that I absolutely can't live without. In 2016 I curated a list for the first time and it was so well received that I'm doing it again for 2017!

As I'm writing this, I already know this post is going to be a LOOOONG one so I hope you have a snack. I'm eating mango and grapes as I work on it. Let's jump in!
