MINERAL THERAPY

When it comes to my skin, I take great care in what I choose to use and am a firm believer that you need to pay close attention to what products you use and that you constantly need to modify them depending on your environment and season. With summer behind us, and my skin suddenly exposed to cold and dry conditions, it’s time to update my skin care by introducing thermal therapy. VICHY MINERALIZING THERMAL WATER This was the product that started it all for me. During summer, I got a slight sunburn and was dealing with dry peeling skin around my forehead and nose.…

DISTRACT

It seems that fall fashion tends to intensely focus on over the knee boots. When OTK boots first came on the scene, I was saying a prayer of thanks for allowing me to wear my favorite dresses and keeping my feet cozy warm.

We planned on going back this year but with my pregnancy and the temptation of amazing farm to table food, we changed our plans and booked a trip to Napa Valley instead. I am a city girl at heart and love living…

GETTING THE GLOW

As I am getting ready for Fall, I’m excited to add one extra step to my skin routine to help achieve that glow. No, I’m not talking about the baby glow, I am referring to that perfect glow that anyone can get without getting pregnant. It’s natural and only take five minutes every morning for one month to see dramatic results. At the same time, I’m excited to share with you my partnership with Aveda Canada. As a huge fan of their products, this is one line that I hold really close to my heart because it’s helping me maintain some balance with…
