This blog is sponsored by Olay Canada I was about a few months ago years old before I started realizing that I was aging. Before you jump at me, let me start by saying that I didn’t see it in a bad way. I just started noticing differences in my body, ones that weren’t really […]

When I think of quick weekend escapes and local staycations, I usually end up in Tofino or Whistler. Since moving to BC, it has never been very common for me to pack up and drive down Highway to explore more of the Fraser Valley. That recently changed for me. You know how much I enjoy […]

Essential oils aren’t just for breathing in smelly goodness. Don’t get me wrong, I only diffuse blends that smell good to me- but there are numerous other health benefits that come with diffusing essential oils.

I grew up in Toronto. My dream of being able to learn how to surf dated back to “Blue Crush” and “Soul Surfer” – but the closest thing I had to it near home was braving the Great Lakes during winter in the middle of a windstorm.

How good are you at keeping the integrity of your hair? Each and every day, we give our hair a serious beating. We cover it in product, we colour/bleach it, tie it up too tight, use heating tools and walk around in city pollution. The kicker? When our hair becomes damaged, we jump to adding more bandaid products that end up causing more damage. Instead of trying anything and everything under the sun – I got my hairdresser to set up with a few products that were guaranteed to work.
