Cozying Up For Fall With Escents

Escents Grace Ceramic Diffuser Energizing Aroma Kit Wellness Roll-On-Kit

While the leaves have not yet started changing colour, fall is just around the corner and it seems it's all everyone is talking about! Funny enough, summer has decided to stay a while longer around here, and despite having pulled out my blankets, thick socks and fluffy slippers just last week, I'm back to wearing shorts and keeping the fans running around the house (and I'm not complaining - summer baby here). To get me in the fall spirit, I recently received a thoughtful care package from Escents, a Canadian aromachology-focused brand based in Vancouver, and have been immersing myself in their wonderful aromatherapy products - along with their Ceramic Grace Aroma Diffuser* and Energizing Aroma Kit*, I also have been enjoying their Wellness Roll-On Kit* and Stress Relief Oolong Tea Blend*.

EPIC EMPTIES | Summer 2017 Edition

Summer 2017 Empties

Well, my favourite time of the year is sadly coming to an end, and that can only mean one thing: it's time to do some cleaning up around here and get rid of products I've used up this past season! My summer empties stash isn't looking too shabby, from fragrances to skincare, body care, hair products and even a few random items worth sharing. As usual, I filmed a video in which I go into detail about the goods, so I invite you to catch my thoughts by watching below (and subscribe to my channel if you haven't already)!

Maison Jacynthe | Fluid Foundation, Soleil Pétillant Highlighter, Panarea Nail Polish & Vingt-Deux Perfume

Maison Jacynthe Fluid Liquid Foundation Sable 02 Soleil Petillant Highlighter 01 Illuminator Nail Polish Panarea Ving-Deux Perfume

I was first introduced to Maison Jacynthe a couple of years ago when I got to try out some of their skin care products and last year also tested out a handful of their makeup products, and I have been in love ever since! Created by Jacynthe René, a Québec-based health and natural wellness guru, actress and author, among many other talents, her natural line of toxin-free products is also vegan and cruelty-free. Now, I love supporting natural beauty brands, and the fact that Maison Jacynthe is local makes me even more of a fan. I recently got to try out a few of her more recent launches, namely her Fluid Foundation, Highlighter, Nail Polish and Perfume, and am here to report back on how I have been getting along with them.

Alberta Road Trip: Canadian Rockies, Glacial Lakes, BC Border and Edmonton

Bow River Banff Alberta Canada

Western Canada has a special place in my heart. I first got to experience it back in 2011 when I visited Vancouver, and again in 2014 when I travelled to Alberta to visit my cousin and her husband who had recently moved to Edmonton from Ontario (catch a glimpse from that trip here). My sister and I wanted to visit them again this year, so we booked a week off in mid-August so that we could make our way out west again. I've been documenting my travels on the blog these past couples of years (Greece two years ago and Italy last September), so I thought it would be fun to put a post and video together for Alberta this year since I did not write a detailed post the first time around. In true tourist spirit, I lugged my DSLR and phone around everywhere we went to capture the beauty around me. We landed in Edmonton on Wednesday and spent the rest of the day at their country house that first night and had Indian food from Tandoori Fuzion in St Albert for dinner. I went for Chana Masala with rice and vegan naan bread and it was exquisite. I've only had Indian a handful of times but have yet to be disappointed!

First Impression | Charlotte Tilbury Makeup and Skin Care

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation Unisex Healthy Glow Magic Foundation Goddess Skin Clay Mask

I still remember quite vividly the whirlwind surrounding Charlotte Tilbury's beauty line launch back in 2013 - I myself had not been familiar with the makeup artist, but once news broke that she had released her own products, she had definitely piqued my interest. I later learned that she was a household name in the makeup industry and worked with a slew of celebrities including Emma Roberts, Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian, JK Rowling and Kate Moss. Since her brand's launch at Selfridges in London, her products are not only available in Britain but also in stores in the US, Canada and the Netherlands as well as online. Her products are on the pricier side and I always wondered if they are worth the price tag. I recently had the opportunity to try a handful of her beauty products, and I am happy to report back on how I have been getting along with them.

Yves Rocher Summer Collection + Makeup Look

Yves Rocher Summer Makeup Look

There's no denying I am a creature of habit - once I find something I really enjoy, I will keep reaching for it on the daily. My comfort zone when it comes to makeup revolves around me sticking to neutral and warm tones, such as purples, browns and bronze shades. However, once summer hits, I am all for trying new colours and challenging myself to create something I have never done before. Yves Rocher has come out with an amazing summer collection (as they always do), and I have partnered with them to share some of my favourites from their recent launch. I also created a vibrant look that focuses on the eyes yet is still simple to achieve, requiring only a few products (using old favourites and new ones) in a few easy steps.

Moisturizing Isn’t Just for Your Face

Vagisil ProHydrate Natural Feel Moisturizing Gel Extra-Strength Anti-Itch Creme pH Balance Feminine Wash

I have peaked your curiosity, haven't I? I know, not your typical beauty-related post, but one that covers an interesting (and important) topic nonetheless, and that is vaginal dryness. This is a topic that I believe should be more openly discussed - if you are a woman (which I know most of you reading this are!), you have most likely experienced this kind of discomfort at one time or another, and knowing there are products out there that can help, such as the Vagisil ProHydrate Natural Feel Moisturizing Gel*, is a relief in itself! My goal here is to make intimate care less taboo, and let others know that those dealing with dryness down there are not alone - in fact, it is quite normal and we should not feel embarrassed to talk about it, even with our doctors.

EPIC EMPTIES | Spring 2017 Edition

I actually filmed this video a couple of weeks ago, but then life got in the way (as it always does) and I finally managed to edit the footage these last couple of days! So without further ado, here are my empties from this past season - not as epic as some previous ones, but I still managed to finish up quite a bit of products! On a side note, I recently received an influx of beauty products, and am currently working my way through testing everything out and bringing you reviews in the coming weeks, so keep an eye out for those!

Summer Get Ready With Me | Wet Highlight + Orange Lips

Summer Get Ready With Me Wet Highlight + Orange Lips

Saying that I am excited that summer is finally here is a bit of an understatement - I am beyond thrilled as it is my favourite time of the year! There's just something about sunshine and hot temperatures. I am always at my happiest once the warmer months come around. I figured since it's been a while that I filmed a Get Ready With Me, that I would share a quick video showing how I created this very simple wet highlight and orange lips look.

Summer Skincare Lineup | My Top Natural Beauty Recommendations

Summer Skincare Lineup Top Natural Beauty Recommendations

Summer is officially right around the corner, and mother nature has been giving us a preview here in Montreal! This past weekend was a scorcher, but I'm not complaining because I live for the hotter months in the city. With the change in seasons, I also have been switching up my beauty routine and trying new products out. I mostly stick to natural skincare products as I find those work best for my skin, so not surprisingly I have quite a few to share with you that are part of my summer lineup.
