HAPPY JUNE! SPRING VIBES! 2017

header sun blue

When Life gives you lemons you squeeze them and make lemonade! Or something like that. Well I was hoping to take a vacation this summer but life happens. SO change of plans! Just going to stick around Toronto and vlog my summer! ūüôā All is good though. I’m very excited actually. Even though I’m dying to see the ocean and smell it and touch it and feel it….LOL I’m okay and the lake will do for now.

I’m very happy that the weather is so nice and everything is green and beautiful! I’ve been preparing my feet¬†and my legs for the nice weather. I’m very self-conscious about my legs and having two children my body has changed quite a bit. I am torn inside by the stretch marks and the weight gain. I’m working my way to loving the way I am and making healthy and better lifestyle choices. One of the choices is Clarins Body Fit Anti-Cellulite Contouring Expert.

I started using the CLARINS Body Fit Anti-Cellulite Contouring Expert and it’s been helping me take care of my legs. I tend to ignore taking care of my legs and I always hide them. Especially the back of the legs and behind the knees. It’s a very emotional thing for me to talk about, but using the Clarins Body fit along with the Self-Massage Body Appliance¬†is helping me a lot. I’m finding that I’m starting to like the way my legs look and feel. Focusing on my body and legs helps a lot because ¬†taking care of them is a positive boost to my self esteem. The Effective body coaching advice and tips from Dr. Olivier Courtin booklet is also very helpful and motivating on this journey. I highly recommend it.

CLARINS 76

The new name and new formula are completely in line with Clarins’ “healthy philosophy” that includes a balanced lifestyle for achieving a fit body. Body Fit, the 7th generation formula, capitalizes on the strengths of its predecessors and goes even further in terms of body contouring results thanks to an unprecedented¬†discovery made by Clarins Research: there are not 1 but 3 adipocytes involved in the expansion of adipose tissue and the formation of cellulite. ¬†-CLARINS

clarins 73

High-performing plants extracts offer optimal contouring results and skin that looks visibly more beautiful. Quince leaf extract’s targeted action is reinforced by caffeine, a known slimming ingredient, along with 7 other plant extracts: organic aquatic mint, celosia, baccharis, scabious, horse chestnut, sunflower phospholipids, and hazelnut oil. ¬†-CLARINS

The Body fit comes in a new bottle with sexy curves that symbolize the “perfect” silhouette. A new, highly sensorial texture that makes application pleasurable and visible results. I’m very happy with the way the formula has a cooling sensation and applies nicely and smoothly. The Multi-Mass is a complete self-massage body device exclusive to CLARINS care products. It’s benefits are as follows: A body polishing and firming booster to help reduce fluid retention on the thighs, buttocks and hips. It strengthens the skin while helping to improve the tonicity and firmness of the tissues. Ideal for removing impurities and dead cells. Can be used to relax and soothe legs and back. I’m very pleased and I continue to use both products. The Body Fit is $70.00.


Not only am I getting my legs fit but I’m also giving them a natural sun-kissed glow with this duo. ¬†Avon Skin So Soft Satin Glow Skin Illuminator¬†and¬†Skin So Soft Body Gel Moisturizer. I love this duo so much. They don’t smell like tanning lotion and they are nice and hydrating. They smell really amazing and make my skin soft and smooth. The results are so nice and natural. I’m very pleased. Have you tried this duo? Would love to know your thoughts.

AVON 66

This is Marcelle’s eye contour gel cream that¬†helps with the appearance of dark circles and puffiness, moisturizes the skin and decongest the eye area, giving them radiance and vitality.
