As a seasoned mother of four I know that each child is a unique individual. Siblings, despite having the same lineage and upbringing, all have their own individual personalities and traits. This is true for their skin as well. Every baby is born with his or her own special skin that requires various products to meet all of their needs. Today’s families are constantly evolving. Life is moving faster and technology is advancing, just like our understanding of what’s best for baby. That’s why … [Read more...] about Give your baby soft and healthy skin
While we often complain about the long and cold Canadian climate, it’s not uncommon for us to see snow fall in March and even April. This means we’re sporting toques, trousers and too many layers to count for at least six months of the year. So, when the temperature soars into the double digits, we’re ready to take full advantage of the sunshine and warmer weather. As we say goodbye to the hats that hide our unwashed hair and trade our long pants for short shorts and skirts, I’m sure I’m not … [Read more...] about Summer Hair, Don’t Care!
I was never a kid or a teenager who would lay out in the sun to get a tan, but I was always outside. I liked to play tag with my friends, ride bikes, climb trees and run around the neighbourhood.

Now that youth is no longer on my side, I … [Read more...] about Putting My Skin Care Products to Work at Night
My husband and I decided to start 2017 with a new plan for losing weight and living healthier, starting the Keto Diet. Despite the word "diet" in the name, Keto is a way of living rather than a short term diet. We have been following the keto plan for two months and I feel confident that I can continue this long term. I've been sharing my weight loss on my personal facebook page and the result has been many questions about what we are doing, so I am going to share our steps in a series of posts. … [Read more...] about Eating Keto: Getting Started
Although this post has been generously sponsored by Garnier Whole Blends, the opinions and language are my own. I started going grey fairly young and as the years have gone on, it’s gradually become my natural colour. Of course, I don’t accept that, so I get my hair coloured regularly and in recent years, I’ve started lightening my hair so that the grey doesn’t appear so stark at my roots. I have an amazing hairdresser who is lightening my hair in stages to avoid damage but years of colouring … [Read more...] about Hair Products Made for Me
All summer long the razor gets so much use that I consider buying shares in Schick, and then the cooler weather blows in. The flannel pajamas come out along with the jeans, socks and boots, and the razor gets a bit of a break. That is until the holiday season is upon us. The holidays bring parties, with offices and families, and that means dressing up. I'm not one to get into a dress very often, so when the time comes it is important to me that I look my best. I try and pick the right shoes … [Read more...] about Get your legs ready for the holidays
