I’m pretty good about taking care of my skin, working out and eating well.
However taking care of my smile is one of things I am diligent about because it truly expresses who I am to the rest of the world. A warm smile is just contagious and opens you up to new people and new conversation. Having spent the past couple years traveling and moving cities, I make a point of smiling as much as possible because you never know who you will meet and connect with. (more…)
It’s a new month!
Which means a round-up of my November beauty favourites. Here are the best things that came across my desk this month that I think are worth sharing:
Eyeshadow Palette – If you’re looking to add an eyeshadow palette to your collection that covers all your bases, check out Pur Minerals Secret Crush which features 8 decadent colours made with minerals. I love the progression from light to dark and the mix of shimmer to dramatic. The palette is great for blending and for taking your look from day to night. Long-lasting and with good pigmentation.

Whether you ran late getting ready this morning, or got asked to a last minute after-work event, a kit of office-friendly beauty products will make sure you always looked polished from 9 to 5 and beyond. But unless your boss will understand that you need an entire filing cabinet for your makeup, we suggest choosing a few essentials that won’t overpower the office supplies.
We’ve picked some of our favourite things to stash at work to avoid crisis and keep you looking fresh before a big (or surprise!) meeting:
Hair Elastics & Bobby Pins: An unexpected rainstorm at lunch or a humid summer day can totally botch your morning’s blow out. Keep some elastics and pins handy for a messy side braid or top knot when you’re in a bind. Goody Double Wear Elastics ($3.99) and Colour Collection Mini Bobby Pins ($3.99) at drugstores. (more…)

There are days when my regular drugstore products just don’t cut it. I noticed that as the seasons change, my skin can become more demanding – especially during the winter.
I met the fine folks at Bremenn Clinical in their hometown of Salt Lake City, Utah when I attended my first Alt Summit in January. It was perfect timing because the altitude change coupled with my recent long-haul flight from Tokyo to Los Angeles was beginning to wear on my skin. My face would go through an intense period of dryness, followed by a cycle of excessive oil production and then a breakout. I really began to feel self-conscious of how my skin looked.
A face regimen overhaul was in order.
First up, I got rid of all my face wipes that were loaded with alcohol. I am really lazy about taking my make-up off at night that I usually give it a quick wipe and I crash into bed. I switched to a more gentle Micellar water to cleanse my skin and it made a big difference. (more…)
