MaskerAIDE to the rescue!

One of the most relaxing things you can do after a stressful day is treat yourself to a beauty mask.
They infuse moisture and vitamins into your skin to keep it looking its best. 

If you're not one for messy homemade masks, try out a fun sheet mask like Maskeraide ($4.99)!

MaskerAide is a unique line of super hydrating facial sheet masks that 
compliment any skin care routine and the most fabulous of lifestyles.

Maskeraide is actually formulated in Canada! They contain great ingredients such as: 
  • Natural Geranium Oil
  • Seaweed
  • Green Tea Leaf Extracts
  • Argan Oil
  • Aloe
  • Heartleaf (a powerful detoxifier)
  • Honey
  • Cactus Extracts
  • Ylang-Ylang Oil,
  • Vitamin E
  • Hydrolyzed Collagen
  • Elastin

  1. To prepare face for your at home facial, start by cleansing and toning your skin.
  2. Tear open packet. Gently unfold mask and place on face. Adjust over eyes, nose and mouth for a perfect fit. Rub any excess serum into neck and chest.
  3. Relax for 10-20 minutes. Remove mask and discard. Gently pat moisture into skin or give a quick rinse and lightly pat dry.
  4. Use once per week. Can be used daily.
I can't fit everything I want to say about MaskerAIDE into one post. So many great benefits in one little package!

Every Girl Needs a Great Blazer!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Express Canada for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
Take a look in your closet, how many blazers do you own?
Would you believe that I own over twenty different blazers!
YES.. you heard me correctly!
I understand that twenty may be excessive to some but I'm a strong believer that every girl should at least own one great blazer. Whether it's cropped, boyfriend or tailored cut.
A good blazer is perfect to throw on to jazz up any outfit.
Have you ever walked into a store and found a blazer that fit you like a glove!
That's how I felt when I walked into Express Canada.

I found a blazer that didn't need to be cut or tailored and also complimented my skin tone.
I know that this this cheesy but I honestly feel like this blazer was made for me!
This picture was taken right after my movie date with my boyfriend.

Adding a deep coloured wine blazer was the perfect item I needed to break up my all black outfit.
It was definitely the focal point of my outfit.
My favourite thing about the jacket is the different colored lapel, material and length.
I can admit it, I'm short. I didn't need to cuff this blazer a lot because the arm length was perfect.
If I wore this blazer out for New Years Eve, I would pair it with a cute sequin dress!
It's hard to see but I wore these awesome Covered Wedge Bootie which is also from Express.
I love this shoe because it has a hidden 2" wedge heel. It zips at the side and has a skid resistant outsole.
Perfect for the Canadian winters!

Soap & Glory is now sold in Canada!

As a Canadian, its hard to get my hands on a lot of beauty/skin care products which are not sold here. I have a few alternatives:
  • Swap/get someone from another country to custom purchase it for me. 
  • Buy it on ebay/amazon.
  • Try to win it in a giveaway.
  • Buy it on vacation.
All valid things to do but it's so much easier to go to my mall and pick up what I need. If it becomes a holy grail item, its easier to have it on my finger tips then wait.

I read blogs from all around the world. I Remember four years ago reading about great products from Soap & Glory from UK bloggers. I wanted to try it from all the rave reviews. When they came to USA, I got a Custom purchase of The Fab Pore Hot Cloth Cleanser.

Now I'm happy to say the line is found in Canada at Shoppers drugmart & Pharmaprix!

Fall 2012 Caryl Baker Visage Uptown Girl Color Collection

It's about time for me to start breaking out the F word on my blog...Fall is coming!

As much as it hurts to state it, it's true. My summer started out amazing with my trip to Dominican Republic. Now instead of searching for a cute bathing suit I'm starting to think about Fall jackets.

The first Fall collection I will be highlighting is from Caryl Baker Visage. 
The theme for Fall 2012 is Uptown Girl.
Midtown Morning Color Collection
What is an uptown girl you ask?
She's sleek,Chic & Sexy!

I decided to watch the lipstick & gloss for you all to see them on my skintone.

"City Slickers" Lip Gloss in Rodeo Drive

"Morning after" Lipstick

This line is definitely appropriate for the office.

Are you ready for Fall?

Annabelle Cosmetics TWISTUP Retractable Lipstick Crayons in Royale

Back in June, I attended a Annabelle/ Marcelle Cosmetics launch. They're one of my favourite Canadian Beauty brands which I think is pigmented and has a vast amount of products to choose from.

Thank you to Rasilla who took this picture. Look at me pointing and drooling over their new setup.

Above everything, I fell in love with their new TWISTUP Retractable Lipstick Crayons. I adore lip crayons but I hate the fact that once they get dull you have to go on a wild goose hunt to find a sharpener to sharpen them. 

Thankfully, Annabelle has eliminated this issue with their new TWISTUPS.  Royale was the color which I fell in love with immediately! Has anyone noticed that I've been gravitating to fuchsia purples lately?!

This Lipstick is creamy and moisturizing.
I really want to try out the 11 other shades!

Would you wear this color?

Social Butterfly ManeTeeze by T&M Review

Don't you hate the fact that your hair "soaks" up smells like a sponge! Nothing is worse that leaving the house and fearing that everyone smells that curry chicken that your mother just cooked. Haha- I know I can't be the only one who thinks that everyone can smell it.

Now that I'm older, I appreciate a product like Mane teeze.
Mane Teeze by T&M Hair Perfumes aim to freshen your hair, invigorate your spirit and unlock your inner diva at any hour of the day. Delicious scents with a higher concentrate than average perfumes adds a long lasting fresh flavour to your hair for up to 12 hours.
Social Butterfly gives off a sweet vanilla scent. I like the fact that the scent is not over powering. If you don't like vanilla scented products there are two other options: Black Widow & Haut Mess. Haut Mess is actually my favorite because it's chocolate and caramel scented.

In a fashionable 50ml glass bottle, Mane Teeze by T&M Hair Perfumes can conveniently be toted around in your gym bag, purse or clutch.

I like the bottle but I wish that they had a travel- sized option. Recently, I went to a BBQ and got the unfortunate seat beside the BBQ. My hair smelled like hamburgers & chicken! Before I left to go to another venue I lightly misted my hair. Since I had a huge bag, sticking it in there was no problem.

If I had my mini over the shoulder bag, I wouldn't have been able to fit it in there. I could probably transfer some to my mini atomizer.

You have two options to purchase ManeTeeze: Online or at a Blo Blow Dry Bar.

How do you deal with hair "odors" other than washing your hair?
