Hairstyle with Garnier! #WholeBlendsLounge

banner tropical summer

One week ago I had the lovely pleasure of visiting Scarborough Town Centre and was informed by my lovely friend and supporter online Joy that Garnier is having a social media extravaganza!  The #WholeBlendsLounge was set up with super duper cute things. It had an area for hair, a swing and bench for pictures and the loveliest station to personalize your own bottle.

Very special!


The first 30 people received special gifts and I was one of them. I received the Argan Oil & Cranberry Shampoo and Conditioner. It’s absolutely fabulous! Did you know that the Whole Blends are paraben free? This duo helps protect colour and gives radiance to the hair.

I was so excited and overjoyed to be at the #WholeBlendsLounge because I’m a HUGE fan of the Whole Blends Products, especially the new Oat Delicacy because I can use it on my children. I love how my hair looks and feels after using the Whole Blends shampoos and conditioners. My hair shines and feels soft and silky. It’s also very hydrating.

I was greeted and had my hair styled by Garnier Brand Ambassador Roger. He is super kind and did a fabulous job on styling my hair. I absolutely loved it! Thank you Roger!


Thank you so much to my friend Joy and to Garnier for all the love and support. I adore the Oat Delicacy new shampoo and conditioner. It is delicate enough for my children and this makes me so happy. I really want to try the dry shampoo and also their new Rose skincare Collection. So much goodness!

How to Best Day Your Skin! ORGANIC SKINCARE

I love to use organic products because there are so many benefits. Organic skincare are so beneficial for all parts of our hair and body. Organics smell so beautiful and natural. They make my skin look and feel really good. They are so healthy and relaxing. Very great for stress relief and are important for our wellness. The results are amazing. I really enjoy a good soak in the bath with mineral salts that are infused with natural oils. I’ve recently switched to natural deodorant and also love to use pure organic oils. I don’t have to worry about using organic products because they are free of chemicals. Here are some Organic Brands that I enjoy using.

Loving  Crawford Street products. Really enjoying using their Body Oil in sandalwood and bergamot. Love their mineral bath in “Steam”. Really helps with relaxing the body especially if you are tired and or experiencing a cold or the flu. I’ve been using their cream deodorant in “herbes de provence” and it works brilliantly with my body. It smells wonderful too. Some natural deodorants don’t work for me but this one is fabulous!


Neal’s Yard Remedies is another brand that I love. All the products that I’ve tried are amazing and I really love how they smell and make my skin feel. A brand you can trust and will love. I love their Wild Rose and Frankincense Collection.


A fantastic brand is also The Green Beaver. I tried them last year and I loved the toothpaste, body cream and hair products as well. Really amazing organic line that we love in our home.19183817

A fabulous Balm to try is Hotty Balm! The packaging is oh so cute and the balm works for all over the body and dry spots like elbows and feet. It’s also fantastic for lips as well. A fabulous product and I love it!


An amazing cream Deodorant by purelygreat. I received this in my Little Life Box a year a go and finished it fast. I love it and highly recommend it. Really works and smells amazing.


Another fabulous brand is  Pearl and Daisy, I love everything that I’ve tried from them. Superb formulas that really nourish the skin and hydrate. I love their bath bombs. They are so good and smells fabulous. They have essential oil in them. I adore their mud face mask and also their soap bars. Really lovely lip balms as well. Very nourishing, soothing and creamy. A must try!


Fantastic Essential Oils

Neal’s Yard Remedies has fabulous organic essential oils. I love the Bergamot, Geranium and Lavender. I love using these in my defuser. I also recommend this book by Susan Curtis. It explains all the oils and what they can be used for. It also has a few recipes for creating a relaxing atmosphere that relieves stress.


Thursday Plantation has beautiful oils and I can’t get enough of these four oils. They are amazing and I use them everyday. My daughter can’t sleep without the lavender. She loves it and it really relaxes her. Takes away her stress. My family loves them and I use them in the defuser, baths and topically. Really amazing quality oils. Pure and Organic.


I hope you enjoyed my blog post. I would love to know what Organic Skincare you love. Please let me know in the comments. Have a beautiful weekend!

Healthier Stronger Hair with NaturAllClub Hair Mask

banner christmas

NaturAllClub  kindly sent me a sample of their Fresh Avocado Deep Conditioning Hair Solution and I’m blown away! WOW! I mean this deep conditioning hair mask is full of all natural goodness and made my hair shiny, smooth, silky, hydrated, voluminous and very soft!

NaturAll Club is to create products with integrity, while fostering and uplifting our community. We are committed not just to using all natural and fresh ingredients, but also to emphasizing messages of self-love and encouraging women to support and learn from each other. -NaturAll


The lovely kit comes with the NaturAll Club Deep Conditioner, NaturAll Club Hair Serum, Hair Tie, Hair Cap and ingredient information sheet and spray bottle (only included in the started box, so you need to hold on to it.)

I used the spray bottle to dampen my hair with water, I applied the deep conditioner throughout my hair and focused on the ends. I tied my hair in a bun with my hair tie and put the cap on. I left it on for 40 min. I rinsed out with shampoo and conditioner. Once a week I am to apply a dime-sized amount of hair serum thought my hair after the shower.


The formula has fresh Avocado!

Fresh avocados contain vitamin B, which is essential for hair growth. Avocados contain vitamin E to help repair damage on the scalp that may slow or prevent hair growing. Avocados help prevent hair loss. When mixed with the right oils, avocados act as a moisturizer for dry, dull or damaged hair. The formula is hand made and 100% all natural. No chemicals or toxins. All fresh! Just fresh, natural ingredients. The product needs to be kept frozen until you are ready to treat your hair. Each pouch is good for 2 uses so you need to keep it frozen until its all gone. The formula consists of fresh Avocados, Vitamin E, Glycerin, Tea Tree oil, Shea butter, Coconut oil, Extra Virgin Oil, Lavender Essential oil, Guar Gum and citric acid. 

Amazing and so good from the roots to tips of your hair!

Soothing scalp and hydrated hair!



The formula is truly remarkable and smells and feels so good! Especially when massaged in the scalp. So wonderful! This is a very hydrating formula that gives so much shine and volume to my hair. I’m truly obsessed with it and I highly recommend it. Check out NaturAll Club Products, they are fantastic!

Wear It The Way You Want! New In Fashion & Beauty

banner fall blog


Cool temperatures are here and I’m happy to share new fashion, hair and makeup  pieces that I’ve been wearing and loving. I feel my style and the pieces I wear say a lot about my character don’t you think? I personally like to wear one piece that is an accent piece. Like a Sequin Skirt with solid colours or a printed cami that has a bit of a wild flare! Patterns and textures are a must for me. I have a huge love for texture, materials and pattern combinations.

I’m wearing a quarter length sleeve top in black from ZARA. Necklace, The Mayan Beauty Layered Tassel Necklace has Multiple rows of faceted beads which create a unique layered look. 52 cm L with 9cm extender $29.00.  The Brush Sequins Skirt, AVON (Swipe up for teal sequins, swipe down for gold. Wear it Solid, create a pattern.) Any Which Way Skirt is $54.00. Outer Shell: Nylon; lining; polyester. I’m also wearing tights and boots from WINNERS. I would pair this outfit with Angela Roi  ZURI TRAVEL POUCH WITH AISHA GIRAFFE – in BLACK. 5% of each sale from the Aisha Giraffe Collection goes to the Wild Nature Institute to help giraffes.

New favourite makeup is the new MAKE UP FOR EVER Refillable Makeup System with three Artist Face Colours. Blush, sculpting powder and highlight. I’m absolutely loving my three shades and the best part is that you can choose from so many colours! I have an article coming this week with this new Makeup System and I’m OBSESSED with it! The three shades that I’m wearing in the photos are H100 Highlighter, B302 Blush, S112 Sculpting Powder.



As for my hair I’m very pleased with the the shine, feel and texture. I really want to try eSalons Custom Hair Colour. It’s a “professional-grade color that delivers rich, long-lasting results and 100% gray coverage.” Sounds pretty exciting to me and very affordable. Have you tried it before? Let me know if you’ve tried it.

I’ve changed my hair routine! I wash my hair less, down to two times a week. I spend more time working the product in. I’m usually very fast and don’t take the time to really massage my scalp and I’ve also increased the time that conditioner stays on. I find this has really helped with the texture of my hair. My hair is more hydrated and shiny. I also enjoy adding oils and giving my hair a lovely treatment every week.

Here are a few tips and tricks to help your hair.


I need to wear my sunglasses more often. I’m loving my D&G Sunglasses. I’m wearing my black quarter sleeve length ZARA top, The Sweet and Pretty Wild Cami by AVON, $36.00. Lipstick CHANEL in the colour Rouge Allure Velvet 63 Nightfall, Bag Wild Thing Bag by AVON, (BAG $46.00 Faux calf hair (polyester) and faux leather (polyrethane). 20cm Lx 13 cm Hx 8 cm D 130cm max. adjustable, detachable shoulder strap).

Summer Hair 2017- Volume Shine and Texture

header sun blue

Summer Hair can be easy if you have the right products and hair tools. I’ve been loving my short hair and it is fun to play around with and style but I miss my long hair too.  I’m growing it back but until then I love playing and having fun with it. I’ve discovered a few lovely products that work really amazing with my short hair and I’m excited to share them with you.


I will start by saying that I wash my hair once or two times a week. In-between washes I use *Batiste dry shampoo Plus Heavenly Volume. Batiste is super fast and easy to use. Gives my hair volume and freshness. I love it because I don’t have time to wash my hair everyday so Batiste dry shampoo really helps with keeping my hair looking nice, fresh and it keeps the grease away.

Transforming hair since the ’70s, the award-winning Batiste Dry Shampoo is proudly made in the UK and is rooted in London Fashion styling. As the beauty insider’s secret weapon, Batiste Dry Shampoo works to instantly revive oily hair, leaving it looking and smelling clean and fresh. -Batiste

This dry shampoo formula plus volume (silica) refreshes hair and adds more volume than normal dry shampoo. Medium strength volumizer with no stiffness or stickiness. It is innovative starch-based ‘no water required’ formulation contains rice starch powder. Small particles allow for better absorption of excess oil, helping to eliminate it at the roots. Available in a 200ml can. The scent has top notes of bergamot, mandarine and lemon. The middle notes are white peach, freesia and jasmine. The bottom notes are tonka bean, vanilla bean, musk and cedar.

It is super easy to use. I shake it vigorously before using it. I keep the nozzle about 30 cm from my head, section my hair and pray it into the roots working all over my head for maximum effect. I then Massage thoroughly with fingertips to ensure roots are fully covered and colour blends. I gently brush through hair from roots to ends to remove excess residue.

TOP TIP: Turn hair upside down and pray into the root for even bigger volume. -Batiste

Batiste is paraben and sulphate free, vegan friendly and not tested on animals. It is available at retailers across Canada and is SRP: $9.99


Next I have my favourite hair mask followed by favourite shampoo & conditioner. I love using the hair mask Marilyn by Lush. Super amazing and really makes my hair feel soft and look so nice and shinny.


Lately I’ve been using and loving my Garnier Fructis GROW STRONG 2 in 1 fortifying shampoo and conditioner. It has apple extract and ceramide and it is also Paraben-Free. I love the way it cleans my hair and it makes my hair feel stronger, smooth and silky. 2

After the shower I like to spray L’OREAL Professionel Paris VOLUMETRY Intra-Cylane + Slicylic Acid. This gives a lot of volume to my hair and I love it. I apply this while my hair is wet at the roots.


I proceed by using a light spray of heat protector before blow drying. I love using TRESemme Thermal Creations Heat Protection. I spray the Heat protection all over my hair.  I then use my favourite hair dryer the *infinity pro CONAIR 3Q. It is quick, quiet and amazing quality! The *infinity pro CONAIR hair dryer is fantastic! My prior blow dryer was a CONAIR also but the features were outdated so I’m SO happy to receive a new one with amazing new features that makes drying my hair fast and easy.



It is light and quiet. It has a brushless motor that lasts 10x longer. It has ionic technology, titanium ceramic technology, patent pending noise reduction technology, removable filter, locking true cold shot button, 3 heat/2 speed settings for custom styling, heavy gauge, professional quality line cord for extra durability and concentrator attachment for pinpointing styling also a diffuser attachment and a filter cleaning brush.

Facts and benefits:

I’m very pleased with the *Brushless Conair infiniti Pro. A fantastic hair dryer and I highly recommend it.
