Last Chemo And Life Update

Hello my lovely friends!

How has your summer been so far? I hope you are enjoying the weather and I truly hope you are all well, happy and healthy.

This summer I’ve been stuck indoors because I had to be very careful not to get burned from the sun. Chemo can make you extremely sensitive to the sun. So I stayed indoors. I didn’t do much with the girls this summer. I feel bad because I usually love to take them to various places. But now that I’m done with chemo and have my energy back we will start exploring more.

Last chemo! The side effects were so bad but I’m just so happy chemo is over!

I have completed my chemo and I am feeling so much better. I still have some side effects but they are not that bad compared to doing chemo. I still have 13 rounds of Herceptin to do and I receive the Herceptin via IV every 21 days. Herceptin can cause heart problems so every three months I will do a heart eco. I just did a heart eco last week and the doctor said that my heart hasn’t changed so this is good so far. He also said I should do some physical activity three times a week for 30 min. He also said that it should be something that I enjoy. I am still trying to get a routine going but I haven’t established my routine yet. I find it challenging to create a routine when you have kids. When you have children and two kittens life is so unpredictable! Oh yes and that’s another thing. We have two cats. Ziggy and Auggie. They are brothers and they are blue bi-coloured ragdoll cats. Ziggy is 9 months and Auggie is 4 months old. Ziggy is very smart and listens and Auggie is a rascal. It’s been a challenge to have them get along.

Sometimes they get a long. Very rare to see them like this.

This week I start radiation. I’m nervous about radiation but I’m trying to stay positive and strong. I am trying to adjust to all the changes. There are a few things that are happening at the moment in terms of change but I’m trying to just focus on one thing and that’s to finish radiation. I have 19 rounds to complete. After that I’ll be able to tell you all about the new changes.

With everything that I’ve been through the past two years it’s very challenging at times to feel optimistic and excited. I am so grateful for all my family, friends, neighbours and online supporters like you. You keep me positive and motivated and offer me so much encouragement. I thank you for all your support and love.

I didn’t share my latest video with you so here it is:

Also I would like to say thank you to a few beautiful products that I won on Instagram:

I won lovely skincare Beauty by ZERO and I love these so much. Gentle and all natural plant based products. I already started using them and love them so much. These can be purchased at shoppers Drug Mart.

I also won beautiful Maybelline LIFTER lip glosses and Garner Micellar waters. I absolutely love these products so much. The LIFTER glosses smell like coconut and are so beautiful and not sticky at all and Garnier Micellar water is the best to remove makeup and refresh the face. So lovely and hydrating at the same time. So blessed to have won all these beautiful products.

For a couple of years I’ve uploaded a lot of Autumn posts and this Autumn I am hoping to have a few blog post created. Not as many as previous years but a couple of good ones. I just really love Autumn so much. Don’t you?

This month I was fortunate to attend an event. It’s been many years since I’ve been to one so this was so incredible! I brought my daughter with me. She Absolutely loved it! The event was for Leuchtturm 1917 company. I’ve been using their bullet journal for two years and I love them. I’ll have a blog post up from the wonderful experience soon.

Thank you for reading today’s blog post my lovely friends! I will be writing about the Leuchtturm1917 Event next. Oh it feels so good to be blogging again!

Thank you and remember to live your life to the fullest!

Holiday Season, Life Update and Gift Ideas!

banner christmas

It’s the most beautiful time of the year! Everything around this time is so magical and beautiful. I adore all the beauty of the Christmas Holidays. The stores are all decorated and look so pretty with lights. People are nicer during the Holidays don’t you think? Happy thoughts and love is in the air! My plans for this holiday is to hopefully be able to do VLOGMAS on my Vlog Channel and document everyday in December. I also would like to create content for the beauty Channel. I’ve taken a little break from it but I’m going to plan a video each week starting next week. I’ll be filming my October Favourites and also a Trying on Benefit Cosmetics video which I’m super excited about.

I’m going to be honest and say I haven’t started decorating or shopping for Christmas. Not sure when I will start but hopefully I can plan to buy gifts a little at a time so that gift buying doesn’t become overwhelming. I have many lovely items on my wish list. I would LOVE the NAUGHTY AND NICE MAGIC BOX BEAUTY ADVENT CALENDAR by Charlotte Tilbury,  the LIPPIE COUNTDOWN ADVENT CALENDAR by NYX cosmetics,  I love and dream of having the The Diptyque calendar one day. Why does it have to be SO Expensive! I would love the Lush and Body Shop beauty Calendars as well.


There are some great stocking stuffer ideas from Shoppers Drug Mart! I love shopping there and picking up gifts. Here are some latest beauty products and accessories from Shoppers:

More blog post and beauty favourites coming soon!

Have a beautiful week!



I miss vlogmas! I don’t know if you’ve watched my vlogmas day 15 when I received a box filled with Garnier goodies, but just incase you haven’t seen that video I’ve added it. Please feel free to watch my vlog and join my Vlog Channel if you like. I would love that!



I  posted beautiful pictures on Instagram and I must tell you that I’m blown away by the amazing skincare products! Of course the hair care products are truly incredible and I’m leaving haircare for another post. Today I want to focus on Garnier skincare and I’m very excited to show you everything. Garnier skincare works beautifully and gives my skin total hydration. I’ll get into each product and explain the benefits.


Garnier Skin Active Micellar Water is an all in one cleansing water that dissolves waterproof makeup and you don’t need to rinse. You can use this for the face, eyes, lips and it is great for all skin types. It is tested under dermatological control. This micellar water takes off my waterproof mascara so nicely and it really helps clean my skin, eyes and lips without rubbing or rinsing. It really helps take away the dirt, oil and makeup and leaves my skin clean and feeling refreshed without over-drying. I shake this  well and use a cotton pad, I apply onto face and eyes and gently wipe without rubbing. Love this stuff so much. My skin feels so soft and smooth after I clean it. Truly incredible and you definitely need to try it out.


Next I have a really lovely and beautiful BB cream. It is Garnier BB Cream +Blur in Light. Sometimes I don’t feel like putting on foundation. I just like to put on my moisturizer with sunscreen and then this baby. It is light and really makes my skin look and feel good. I absolutely love using this everyday instead of foundation. Seriously amazing and I totally recommend this. Light on the skin and doesn’t clog my pores. 15


Next I’m going to talk about how I apply three products that really help refresh and boost my skin in the morning. I really love to add the Clearly Brighter Anti-Puff roller under the eyes and I add the Dark Spot Corrector on my forehead. I have a huge dark spot on my forehead and this has been helping a lot. Followed by the Ultra-Lift Miracle Wake-Up Cream. You might think this is a lot but it isn’t.  The three together are so light in formula and very hydrating. I really love the Anti-puff roller because it really soothes and cools under my eyes. I only add the dark spot corrector on my forehead and I love how light it is and non greasy. I also really like the scent. All Garnier products smell so good and refreshing. The Miracle Wake-Up Cream is so so lovely. Love the gel formula and I really like the way it feels on my skin. The formula helps with keeping my skin hydrated all day. It also has anti-fatigue properties.



I like to clean my face daily and I’ve been loving  Garnier Skin Active Pore Purifying Clay Cleanser +Mask because its a two in one!  I use this to clean my face everyday and once a week as a face mask.  The formula really helps remove all impurities and purifies pores. It has Kaolin Clay and Charcoal. It is Oil Free. I really like the cooling effect and also the scent is really nice and refreshing.


Last item on my Garnier favourite skincare items is the most important one for me. Garnier OMBRELLE  which is an ultra light and weightless sunscreen face lotion with UVA+UVB SPF 60. I use this everyday and I love it. It is very important that I protect my skin from the sun and I don’t want any sun damage. This is light and doesn’t clog my pores. I absolutely love it!


So these are my recent Garnier skincare favourites. What are yours? Would love to know!

I’ve been trying these out for a few months and I absolutely love them!

Let me know if you tried any. What do you think?
