Smell Like a Forest with Cascadia

I kind of have a thing with essential oils by way of a diffuser I got a long time ago – years ago – that lives on my desk and kind of sways (dictates) the mood around me.  It’s always a good day when the diffuser is on, and anytime it is, people are going […]

Bio-Oil is celebrating its 10 year anniversary in Canada this year!  Did you know that it has been around for that long?! Looking back, it’s kind of amazing that Bio-Oil was at the beginning of the oil trend.  Now, we’re used to seeing oils in makeup, face care, and of course for the body – […]

I love discovering new brands of beauty and wellness, and my latest find is Woodlot, a health and beauty company out of Vancouver, British Columbia.  Wikipedia tells me that Woodlot is “a parcel of a woodland or forest capable of small-scale production of forest products as well as recreational uses like bird watching, bushwalking, and […]

Reader Question: Molton Brown Products

I got the following email from Mr. C: Where can we buy Molton Brown Hand washes in the Toronto Area? I don’t want to buy on-line because my wife has scent allergies, so we need to test them before purchase. Where can we do this? You can get Molton Brown products at Holt Renfrew stores […]

Smashbox Eyeliner Brush

This one’s for the rookies. I tried Smashbox Arched Eyeliner Brush and was thoroughly impressed with it. I usually don’t use liquid eyeliner to line my eyes, and don’t line on top, so I really don’t have experience with the whole lining process, but when I used this brush nobody can tell. The problem that […]

This week I had a question via email from C, who wrote: I was wondering if you could recommend a good grapefruit scented line of body care that might be available to buy online. C, you could order the Grapefruit scented goods from Kiehl’s. They have a body wash and a body lotion, but I’ve […]

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Review

This moisturizer picks up where all the others left off. While some feel too heavy or too much like actual foundations, the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer literally melts into my skin when I was putting it on. The texture is that soft. The other thing that this tint has going for it is that it’s […]

Make Up For Ever Single Eyeshadows

Take a look: Make Up For Ever now sells eyeshadows and their compacts separately, so that when you run out of your favourite shade, you can just buy the refill instead of tossing the whole compact out!  That’s actually better for the environment, so I hope more companies are going that way.  You can also […]

Product Overload?

I had to resurrect this article from the archives… because we’re still in the trend of product overload and we don’t need to be… This article has been the talk of the ‘net ever since it was published. Nicky Taylor decided to conduct an experiment wherein she stopped using any products, stopped showering, and stopped […]

8 Products I Loved in 2017

I love the New Year.  I don’t think so much about what I “accomplished” but more about the memories I made.  More than anything else, my goal last year and this year was to put 100% into home life and most of that doesn’t get documented on social media.  Instead, like a dinner you spend […]
