2803I don’t know about you but I am full swing into Christmas shopping and trying to get everything I need for everyone on my list. That’s not all that’s on my plate, I am also decorating the nursery and trying to decorate our home because we will be hosting our annual Christmas Dinner. Sometimes when you are prepping for the holidays and making sure everyone is taken care of, you forget to take a little time out and just breathe.

As an Aveda Canada partner, the kind folks at Aveda Canada sent me the most perfect package that helped me recharge and relax for the holidays.

avedaI have a huge weakness for candles. There is something comforting about their aroma that just eases all of the stress away from your shoulders. This one, Gift of Comfort and Light, from Aveda is part of their candrima collection. The scent of organic ginger and ginger lily transports all your senses and makes you feel like you are at a spa retreat. The aroma lingers for hours and is powerful enough to scent two rooms at once. As soon as I got this candle, I left it open and let the holiday-inspired aroma fill my room before I lit it.










Another package I received from Aveda Canada was their Pure Comfort gift set. This gift set is all about spoiling you to the max! Again, it’s part of the candrima collection and it contains three key pieces: candrima creme cleansing oil, candrima body moisturizer and hand relief moisturizing creme with candrima aroma.

2802If you are living in a place that is experiencing a harsh winter, this gift set is perfect for your loved ones (and for yourself). The cleansing oil has the perfect mix of sesame and coconut oil, ideal for anyone who suffers from dry skin in the winter time. I have been using it on my legs everyday to help hydrate and nourish my skin. The body moisturizer is a great way to seal in the oil that you just put on your skin, and if you are pregnant like me, it’s a great rich all day moisturizer to help soothe your skin (and to help prevent those stretch marks from creeping up on you).

In the winter time, my hands suffer a great deal from being constantly exposed to hot water and cold dry air. This incredibly hydrating hand moisturizing creme has been god sent in helping me hydrate and leave my hands feeling soft and smooth. I also noticed a significant decline in lines around my fingers and on the palms of my hands.



Both of these gift sets cost around $40 each, but today Aveda Canada is partnering up with me to give one lucky winner BOTH GIFT SETS! That’s right, one lucky person is going to win both of these gift sets.
Rules to win this gift set are to comment below as to why you would like to win this gift set. Once you are done, head on over to my Instagram account and follow the remaining rules and you are done.


All winners for my 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway with The Grey Canvas will be announced on December 13, 2016. Good Luck and don’t forget to take a little time out and breathe.

    My mom first introduced me to Aveda when I was young. It’s all about the botanicals she used to say. I’d love to give her this (and my sister) as they’ve never used these particular products.

    I grew up on Aveda – their rosemary mint was a staple in my home. Such amazing products!

    I love the aroma of ginger. I add ginger to a lot of the food that I cook, plus I drink ginger tea with honey (so yummy!). Plus my legs are so dry right now that I can’t show them in public. It happens to me every winter, they just suddenly dry out. And we are there. Crispy, flaky legs! Yuck. Aveda would be a great solution. I have the Rosemary Mint Body Lotion, but I need something richer.
