Currently Obsessed: NUDESTIX Clean-Up Pencil

I have prided myself on being able to make cat eyes with 95% accuracy. 
The other 5% results in a huge mess. Especially with liquid liner.

Lately, my clean ups have been really easy with NUDESTIX Clean-Up Pencil ($28.00 CAN).
It's a literal breeze. Just swipe it over the mistake and wipe it away!
Why you need it?
  • It doesn't pull on your skin- which is really important in delicate areas like your eyes.
  • Works on hard to take off makeup 
  • It's clean and quick
I love it!



Love: Fuji Green Tea™ Body Butter

One thing about The Body Shop is that they always come up with the best scent combination. 
At first, when you hear them- you wonder.. How in the world is that going to smell?  
But! It always works out. I recently tried Fuji Green Tea™ Body Butter ($20.00 CAN). 


We all know about the benefits of green tea. I honestly live by it! 
This product is no different. Just for your skin. 

Smooth on replenishing hydration, while detoxing body and soul with the crisp and refreshing scent of Fuji Green Tea™ Body Butter.


This is actually their first collection which is infused with green tea leaves from Mount Fuji.

Top 5 reasons you need to get your hands on this body butter:

  • Not greasy
  • Very hydrating
  • Infused with green tea 
  • Perfect for all skin types
  • Contains Community Fair Trade Shea Butter from Ghana
The best tip I got from a Body Shop employee was to apply this butter right after you come out of the shower for maximum absorption. 



Check out Giant Tiger!

Did you know that Giant Tiger is one of the very few Canadian family discount stores out there? 
I was introduced to brand around 5 years ago. One thing to know about Giant Tiger is that they have REALLY affordable prices and an amazing return policy.
Canadian owned and operated since the first Giant Tiger store opened in 1961 in Ottawa’s historic ByWard Market, today the privately held company has more than 200 stores in 8 provinces.
Now that I'm a new home owner, I had the opportunity(giftcard) to check out what they have and I was appalled by the reasonable prices.

The first thing on my list was a mat for our garage. 
I found some trendy prints for $2.50.
DEAL!

I need some basic maxi dresses for my honeymoon and checked out these cute prints for under $8.00.
That's under $10.00 with tax.
Deal!

Of course I needed to get a cute makeup bag to carry my makeup for my Honeymoon.
It's black zippered and roomy. I believe it cost me $5.00.
Plus I got two 4x4 piece cup-plate-bowl-saucer sets for $16.00 each.
Which is very comparable to the department store brand that I was going to get for $100.
You could never tell the difference.
Once I realized that I got another box!
Deal!

Once of my favourite parts of Giant Tiger is the food section!
Brand name selections not brand name prices.
This is just a small portion of their refrigerated selection.
They also have frozen food, fruits/vegetables and packaged goods.

I should also add that Giant Tiger has their own line called Giant Value.
Products at a lower price point plus they come with a money back guarantee:

"If you are not completely satisfied with one of our Giant Value™products simply return the product with your receipt of purchase for a complete refund."

If you have a Giant Tiger in your area I'd suggest you check them out!
I got a lot of stuff within budget. I know I spoke about the Giant Value policy but overall it's a one stop shop.




Drink More Water- Strauss WaterBar

Water is an essential part of my life. Before the wedding, I was so immersed in water. I drank up to almost 2L a day and I was reaping all the benefits! On my wedding day, my skin was immaculate and I was even able to lose 10 pounds. Remember water aids in digestion, detoxing and boosts circulation. But now that everything is over and I have hardly touched 500ml daily. SO embarrassing!

This week, I reconnected with my love of water. I was invited to a Hello Gorgeous event by Strauss Water Canada. The belle of the ball was the Strauss WaterBar. Let me explain this beauty to you....

Strauss WaterBar–a revolutionary drinking water solution that provides a convenient, stylish and environmentally friendly alternative to bottled, filtered and tap water. How? An activated carbon filter, a micro-mesh filter and ultra violet light to deliver safe, great tasting water, all the while maintaining essential mineral elements including calcium and magnesium.
Facts:
  • Strauss Water Canada- 40 years in the field
  • Two models(T6 &T7)
  • Comes in an array of colours
  • It's easily hooked up to your main water line
  • You chose the water you want: cold, room temp and boiling
  • Triple water filtration and purification process,  kills 99.9% of micro-organisms & bacteria plus absorbs the chlorine.

It's also good to get creative with your water drinking!
Add fruits to spice it up.
Lemon is very refreshing!

With the boiling water option, add your favourite tea bags!
At the Hello Gorgeous event, we had the opportunity to make our own teas.
My favourite part was coming up with the flavour combinations!

Overall, the Strauss WaterBar is suppose to bring back the love of drinking water at home or in the office. This is the best way to eliminate buying bottled water weekly.

Isn't it the perfect addition to your kitchen table?
You can purchase one at strauss-water.ca/

Top 3 Honeymoon Must Haves!

After a whirl wind 20 month engagement- It's all over.
Two days after my wedding, I was on a flight to the islands with my essentials.
I don't want to go into the details yet but there was three items which I could NOT leave at home.

Vichy Idéal Soleil Invisible Mist ($35.95 CAN) - Gone are the days of throwing sunscreen in your hands to apply it to your body. Now you don't need to get you hands dirty at all. The best part is that it's hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic and paraben free! It applies as an invisible mist in a continuous spray. Super easy to use and applies dry!

Nair™ Moroccan Argan Oil Shower Power™ Max ($17.50 CAN)- If you're running short on time or need a touch up, this needs to be in your suitcase. Apply with a sponge at least 1 minute before stepping in the shower. While in the shower try your best to keep the cream on for two minutes and away from water. Then use the bumpy side of the sponge the remove the cream. 
Really easy and it smells good.

ARM & HAMMER™ Truly Radiant™ Rejuvenating Toothpaste($3.99 CAN) So I had to reverse the 20 months of cake tasting, late night coffee dates and any other damage. So I religiously used this toothpaste daily! Not only does it whiten teeth but it also repairs tooth enamel.


Giveaway- Schick Hydro Silk TrimStyle Razor

I love products that make my life easier!
Right now, I have a product in my washroom that will change the way you think about shaving! 
It's the Schick Hydro Silk TrimStyle razor ($13.99 CAN). 
I recently saw the cheeky commercial and was very intrigued.

It's one of the only waterproof bikini trimmers/hydrating razors ALL in one tool. Perfect for pool parties, honeymoons and SUMMER!

Why you need it?
The trimmer has an adjustable comb for you to decide, "How low are you willing to go?".  Plus 4 settings for you to choose your own customized length.

The razor has not one but five blades which makes it awesome on all your curves. I love how the blades have skin guards which helps to reduce irritation. I recently used a no name brand razor and I now know the importance of skin guards :(

To replenish moisture after shaving, a water-activated hypoallergenic moisturizing serum is dermatologist-tested is applied to your body with every stroke. * I do recommend using a shaving cream when saving your legs for optimal use*


Again.. trust me this is one razor you will need this summer?
Schick Hydro Silk is offering 20 Canadian Spiced Beauty a chance to try out the razor!
