Remember my past April stay at Charlotte hotel The Ivey’s!? Yeah, I’ll never forget it. However, with all of the buying a new house, prep for moving around that time, the chaos of life and then the huge move itself (and everything else that follows with homeownership), this post has been delayed more times than I can even remember! Apologies if you were waiting for it…shoot, I was waiting for it! We’re here now, that’s all that matters. :)
Skin, skin, skinnnnn! It’s what’s in right now, no? Luminous, dewy, hydrated and plump skin! I’m all about it..the glowier, the better. But we need to work on achieving that skin and it, of course, starts with being well-hydrated, well-fed (eating organic, whole foods, low to no sugar – easier said than done for me lol) and getting our rest! These factors are so key! But then comes in the next most important part: skincare to maintain it all! So, I figured what better way to share about that than give you my updated skincare routine to get the ball rollin’? It’s what has helped me keep my skin in tip-top shape, including keeping blemishes at bay, my face as soft as a baby’s bottom (ok ok, not quite, but pretty close), and brightening my under eyes..along with so many other benefits.
I will preface, my skin is not your skin. I’m dry, with a tendency to be oily in the t-zone. So sometimes I’m a bit combo-ish. Not everything that works for me will work for you…so, if you can keep that in mind, then we can get started! ;)
Happy Memorial Day! Before I get all “get to shoppin'” I wanted to take a moment and recognize this holiday. I mean, I am Canadian…but I’ve been living in the states now for half my life! So anyways, all I’m saying is I’m thankful for the men and women who’ve fought for us to stay safe and have lost their lives in the line of duty. We don’t take it for granted!

How many times in your life have you heard “there’s an oil for that”? If we’re talking about me…I’ve lost track. I mean, just from the array of oils in the above photo, it’s enough to make you crazy with intrigue, no? ;) What do I use them for? Why do I use them? How many times a day, do I diffuse them or apply them topically or both?! All the questions! Get your cute lil noggins ready because this blog post is all about my favourite essential oils, how I use them and the what’s, why’s…and then some!
It’s been a long time comin’ you guys…I never thought I’d see the day (especially in the green beauty space), where I’d say I’ve found my holy grail(s) of natural deodorant! AND YES THEY WORK! HALLELUJAH!
If you can, be outside today! Plant some flowers or a tree! Ride your bike, carpool to reduce your carbon footprint..reduce, reuse and recycle! (It’s still a thing! I remember learning all about it in elementary school!) Be thankful for this beautiful planet earth we live on and make sure to treat it kindly!
