Currently Obsessed: Maybelline SuperStay Vinyl Ink Liquid Lipstick

With the weather changing- Question do you do the same thing with your self care products? For example do you switch your pinks to deep rich reds or do you switch your shampoos/conditioners to something lighter to handle the heat. 

I found a product that I'm currently obsessed with from Maybelline!

Fall is here! I'm literally swimming in pumpkin spice and crunchy leaves. LOL! I love that the weather changing gives us an excuse to shop for some Fall clothes too! Cooler temperatures and that hint of winter wind nipping at us has me online buying staple Fall pieces.

Battling the Canadian Winters with three easy steps!

This time of year, I always start feeling the weather in the form of dry skin. Not sure about you guys, but by the end of November I sometimes feel like an old AND dried up.

Luckily, I have 3 solutions that are bound to hit the spot!

Starting Kindergarten in Ontario- Let's talk lunches!

Customization is definitely going to be the key for us going into Kindergarten! With probably 25 students in a class- One teacher and a TA… things are bound to get mixed up or lost.

How to get your toddler to wear a mask on the plane

The pandemic has changed a lot of things for us, hasn't it? From product shortages to Zoom conferences, it seems that everything in our lives have been impacted in some way. One recent things is that the mask ban has been lifted. But when it comes to flying in Canada- Masks are STILL needed for the whole flight.
For us grown ups, it can be hard enough to keep it on, but for the little ones? It seems to be impossible. I mean, it's hard enough to get them to keep their socks on!

Parissa is changing the way we wax

Happy June everyone! 
Summer is around three weeks away. Not like I’m counting or anything! If you’re in Ontario, the temperatures are hot hot hot! It’s the perfect time to remove that unwanted hair from areas that are so bothersome. I have tried so many methods over the years (some you will find on this blog) but one that can never be disputed is Waxing! Temporary pain for long - term gain right! LOL! That rhymes. Especially if done right. Taking the hair directly from the root. You can have smooth skin for 2 - 8 weeks depending on your hair growth. 

A brand that you should totally get on your radar is Parissa
Have you heard of them yet?
