My skin is dry year round, and the fall and winter months prove especially trying. I find I can never bring enough moisture to my skin. Dry, sensitive skin can make the cold weather down right miserable. It can also be incredibly aging over the long term. The Eau Thermale Avène Hydrance Optimale skincare range is all about offering maximum hydration to sensitive skin which sounds exactly like the kind of products I need in my routine. In September 2015 Avène adds a new product to the Hydrance Optimale line. The Eau

Sponsored I'm not the kind of person who treats herself to a day at the spa. I think I've probably only had about 2 facials in my entire life. (OK maybe I need to work on having OTHER people in my life that treat me to a day at the spa ;P). Anyways, I guess you could say I'm a bit of a DIYer when it comes to pampering treatments. I enjoy relaxing in the comfort of my own home, with my extensive skin care routines, and a nice facial mask. It just isn't practical for me to arrange childcare and travel to treat my skin right, when I

Soap Stories is a Canadian brand with manufacturing locations and stores in both Canada and abroad. They offer handmade soaps, body care products, and gift sets. The soaps ($12 CAD ea) are absolutely beautiful and they smell incredible. I've been testing out the Lemongrass and Honeysuckle soaps and they are so delightful. They smell amazing. Even my husband is in love with the Lemongrass soap. The only thing is with their large, rectangular shape they are difficult suckers to keep a hold of when wet and slippery! The Natural

NUDESTIX has added several new products to their range recently and I'm going to be sharing some of them with you today. NUDESTIX #gobronze ($35 US/$38 CAD) is a beautifully packaged set including two Magnetic Eye Color Pencils in Gilt and Immortal. The gold and bronze shades offer a subtle magnetic finish and have great pigmentation and colour payoff.
