Have you read Belinda’s Newsletter? I would like to say a HUGE thank you to her for mentioning me. She is wonderful and It means so much! You should totally subscribe to her powerful blog and inspiring newsletter. (at the bottom of her blog.)

Oh yes and her brilliant YouTube Channel too!

From the moment I started blogging I’ve come across beautiful and inspirational people that I love and adore. I’ve mentioned many in my blog posts before and this month on my blog I would like to share more lovely artists and feature them. You can see many of these lovely inspirational people all around me all the time because they are the ones that leave the positive comments and share my posts and interact with me. I’m truly blessed. This emotional and heartfelt blog post is because of all of you! From all the loving and beautiful support you’ve given me. Thank you! A huge thank you to Cat and Belinda. It means so much to me and I appreciate it so much.

I wanted to thank you all for the comments you left me on the video for the Fashion Magazine Beauty Vlogger Video. Have you seen all the comments in my video? I didn’t win by the way but I WON in a HUGE and different way! MY GOD! All of you made me win inside my heart by the warmth of your comments! Seriously! It’s a true blessing to have you all by my side. I appreciate you all! Thank you so much! By the way thank you to CAT for showing me how to add IG photos in the blog posts! 🙂 woo hoo!

When I was talking to Cat I mentioned how I want to create connections this year and work together with more artists. Collaborate and Integrate!

I really enjoy working with others!

So Belinda mentioned TRIBES in her newsletter and right away I remembered teachers College and fell in love with the idea all over again. A community where people help people and learn from each other. A place where we can be our true selves and inspire each other. Reminds me a lot of the Canadian Beauty Bloggers. I’m grateful for being a part of the CBB because I’ve gotten to know a lot of strong women in the group that truly inspire me. So thank you to the CBB team for being there for me. This is starting to feel like a huge THANK YOU blog post! Why not! I’m totally GRATEFUL and High on LIFE!!  WOO HOO!




Sometimes it can be hard to be a blogger and influenster. I’m being honest here. Sometimes I need a little push to move forward. Well lately connecting with bloggers has been that wonderful push forward. I feel so strong and more confident when I work with other lovely bloggers. I love interaction and communication. Working together is so important. That being said I wanted to let you know that starting  now until further notice I’m going to pin a tweet on twitter and feature a lovely YouTuber, Vlogger, blogger or artist for each month because I feel we should help each other grow.

Sometimes I feel that people don’t do this enough. It’s so important to help each other, promote each other and grow together. Sometimes I feel that people lead a self centred life.  Life is so much more beautiful when it’s done together. It is more creative, fun and there’s a give and take of positivity and good energy. More can be accomplished and achieved together and it’s so fulfilling!

I feel very happy and grateful to have a lovely group of people around me that encourage me. You can see all of them in comments that are on my blog posts and videos. All of YOU who leave positive messages is what fuels me to write more, take more photos and explore more with my writing and blog. There are also friends behind the scenes that chat with me and really help me out.

Positive energy and positive vibes!

Thank you!

Like I mentioned in my post New Exciting Additions! Cat is a huge motivator and she seriously needs to become a motivational speaker or write a book or something because she is a GIVER! She is very special. There are GIVERS in this world and there are TAKERS and CAT is a really amazing giver! She has helped me and pushed me to take risks and move forward.   Cat, THANK YOU for helping me along. Seriously HUGE THANK YOU!

I believe in what ever you put out in the Universe it will come back to you and it will ripple and grow big. This I believe a lot. Positive vibes and thoughts create positive things in life.  I would like to say a huge thank you to Cat and Belinda and a huge thank you to all of you for being by my side. I don’t care if I sound too cheesy or emotional. I LOVE being who I am and I’m not afraid to show it. *thank you Cat for helping me.


It’s okay not to be “perfect”

It’s okay to be crazy and let my really funny side show.

It’s okay to be who I am and love my self just the way I am.

Thank you all!



Follow your heart and when you do, a smile will form on your face without you knowing.

ARM & HAMMER Truly Radiant -REVIEW

bestdayblogger blog headerIn collaboration with the Canadian Beauty Bloggerscbb-logo-whiteThis is a PR Sample. Not an AD. Not Sponsored.

This is the first time trying Arm & Hammer toothpaste and I must tell you that I’m truly pleased with it. I really love the minty flavour and freshness that it leaves in my mouth. The freshness stays in the mouth for a long time. This toothpaste really cleans my teeth better then any toothpaste I’ve ever used. I’m not just saying this to sell you the product. I really love this toothpaste and I’ll be purchasing this again. I tried my old toothpaste after using ARM & HAMMER for a few weeks and I disliked my old toothpaste. So I’m going to continue using ARM & HAMMER Truly Radiant Clean and Fresh and I highly recommend it.

Introducing a fresh, new cleaning sensation! Powerful whitening cleansers give teeth an amazing deep clean plus an invigorating surge of spearmint for long-lasting freshness. Look and feel truly radiant today! Four different cleaning agents whiten and clean teeth. Three unique freshening agents help provide a crisp mint flavor for long-lasting fresh breath. Cleans deep and strengthens tooth enamel. Fresh from the Dentist Feeling of Clean – ARM & HAMMER

ARM & HAMMER Truly Radian Clean & Fresh toothpaste has baking soda in it and I feel this ingredient really helps get into the gum area that other toothpastes don’t. I had a visit to my dentist recently and she said that my gums are not bleeding as much after my usual visits. I feel this is because of ARM & HAMMER toothpaste along with flossing every other day.


It may surprise some to learn that baking soda is actually the least abrasive material for polishing and cleaning teeth. That’s why it’s always been considered such a healthy choice in oral care. By dissolving into fine particles, baking soda gets into areas deep between teeth and along the gum line that other toothpastes can’t reach. It also penetrates into the tiny crevices in tooth enamel to dissolve intrinsic stains. Baking soda in toothpaste not only has ample scientific support, it has a proven track record. As the maker of ARM & HAMMER toothpaste, we’ve been pro-baking soda for over 100 years. Today, dental professionals are realizing that baking soda remains a near-perfect ingredient for toothpaste because of its biological compatibility, ubiquitous nature and especially its low abrasivity. -ARM & HAMMER


I’m very happy with the toothpaste and I’m going to continue using it. I absolutely love the freshness it leaves in my mouth and I love the smooth finish it gives my teeth. It has made my teeth whiter and my smile more radiant!  I highly recommend it! Give it a try and let me know if you see a difference with your teeth. I know it made my teeth look and feel great!

Thank you to the Canadian Beauty Bloggers and thank you to the PR for the amazing Sample. I’m loving my new toothpaste!

Coppertone ClearlySheer Sunscreen – Info & Review

This is a collaboration with the Canadian Beauty Bloggers



New Coppertone ClearlySheer sunscreens deliver trusted broad spectrum protection in delightfully light, refreshing formulas that barely leave a trace on the skin. They absorb quickly, feel clean and light on the skin, and won’t clog pores or cause breakouts.The ClearlySheer line is designed with her specific needs in mind, and unlike any Coppertone she’s ever tried before. The line includes a Lotion for Body, Spray for Body and Lotion for Face. All three products have an SPF 30 with broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection, a moisturizing formula to keep skin smooth and soft and a light fresh scent. They are also water resistant up to 80 minutes. ClearlySheer is appropriate for use on sensitive and acne-prone skin. ClearlySheer is available at mass, drug and grocery retailers across Canada as of March 2016. Suggested retail price is $9.99 for the ClearlySheer lotion and spray for body, and $8.49 for the face lotion.


Over the weekend I used the Clearly Sheer Coppertone Spray. It mists very lightly and doesn’t drip or feel greasy. It doesn’t stain my clothing and It distributes evenly. I really love the formula because it is lightweight. It is also fast and easy to use. The Clearly Sheer by Coppertone is what I’ll be using this summer because it has UVA/UVB protection. It is very crucial that I protect my skin from the sun.  I don’t recommend spraying the face though because you are inhaling the product. I just use the spray for the body. For the face use the Clearly Sheer Face because the face formula will not clog pores and will not cause breakout. The formula is also very moisturizing and keeps the skin very smooth. It is water resistant up to 80 minutes. Perfect for swimming and for your summer vacation.

Nair Wax Ready Strips – REVIEW

bestdayblogger blog header

This is a collaboration with the Canadian Beauty Bloggers.


4988I’m here to share my experience with Nair hair Remover ready Wax Trips. I’ve never tried Nair wax trips before. These are made with 100% Natural sourced ingredients and made with Rice Bran oil.

-No warming or rubbing required

-Waxing made easy

-Dermatologically tested

“The only truly ready-to-use wax strips” -Nair

In the package there’s forty wax strips and 4 wipes. The oil formula in the wipes is really nice. You use the wipes after you wax to soothe the skin.  The instructions are easy to use and the strips are easy to peel and apply.

Everybody is so different when it comes to hair growth and some people have thicker hair some people have thinner hair. Some people have coarse and some people have sparse hair. That being said I feel that I have a lot of hair but that’s not what my aesthetician tells me. She said I actually have less then others. So we are all different and It’s okay to have hair. You can read my hair removal journey in my first article  Summer Ready with Easy Waxing Kits.

I’ve been waxing for many years so the application and use is super easy to me.  I feel that this kit is really great but for me it would take more then one package to do everything and it is time consuming. The kit works great though. I really like how simple and easy it is to use.


If you have never waxed before I would recommend going to a professional first. Then when you get a few hairs growing back I would use the strips. These would also be great to take on vacation and to have when you don’t have time to go to an aesthetician.


 I usually  get professionally waxed and when some hairs come back I use the Nair Wax strips for this reason. I will definitely buy these strips to have as a back up for minor hair growth. They are easy to use and simple. They really work.

Thank you to the Canadian Beauty Bloggers and to Nair for this lovely opportunity.

Hello my lovely friends! I hope you are all well and enjoying this beautiful hot weather. I’m here to share with you some beautiful JOE FRESH cosmetics that I kindly won from a twitter party that the Canadian Beauty Bloggers hosted with Shoppers Drug Mart and Joe Fresh. 


I kindly received the prettiest highlighter in the colour ‘Champagne’ a pretty blush in the the colour ‘Radiant Rosette’ a beautiful Matte Liquid eyeliner and a Mascara in Black. I’ll be reviewing these lovely products and creating a summer look very soon. The shades look so beautiful and exactly what I like. I love rose colours and I love that the mascara has Argan oil to help the lashes. The eyeliner tip is very fine and the highlighter is so radiant. The blush reminds me of a pretty pink macaron! I’ll swatch them up soon!


I would like so say thank you so much to the Canadian Beauty Bloggers, to Shoppers Drug Mart and Joe Fresh. I am truly grateful and I look forward to having fun with the makeup. 🙂
