Dainty Destinations: Paris

Categories: Lifestyle,Travel

Hello from London friends! I’ve been traveling throughout Europe for work for the past week and I’ve got another week to go! I started my adventure in Paris, then Copenhagen and I’m currently in London leaving for Munich on Monday. My friends at eLUXE asked me to compile a travel series for their blog The Luxe Life and my first “Dainty Destinations” post went live today!

Dainty Destinations: Paris

The first post is all about Paris – the must-sees, must-eat, what I wore, favourite memories and more. Check it out HERE and stay tuned for my next feature on Copenhagen next week!

Summer to Fall Fashion & Beauty Transition

Categories: Fashion

When I made the switch from an iPhone to the new Samsung Galaxy S5 last month, it got me thinking about making the transition from summer to fall. Just like changing technologies, updating our wardrobe and beauty routine for a new season can feel overwhelming (especially when the seasons change as drastically as they do in Canada). On the bright side, it’s never as daunting a task as we anticipate. I had fun learning the many features of my new Samsung Galaxy S5, and I like to get creative with my style choices between seasons as well.

It’s that time of year again!

Redness Therapy with Murad Canada

Categories: Beauty,Beauty,Skincare

Fair hair, light eyes and pale skin – my Celtic genes are great, but they also make my skin very prone to redness. I don’t tan, I burn. I don’t blush, I get splotchy. If I get a pimple, it’s a long-term relationship! Finding the correct combination of skincare products is like a chemistry project for me, but I’ve found the most success with skincare targeted towards sensitive skin. The latest weapon in my beauty arsenal is Murad Sensitive Skin Soothing Serum.

Redness Therapy with Murad Canada

Murad is one of the world’s premier clinical skincare brands and Dr. Murad, known as the “Father of Internal Skincare” is a board-certified dermatologist, trained pharmacist and Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine (Dermatology). As you’ve probably learned through reading my blog, I’m a bit of a skincare junkie, so I’m thrilled to test some of their award-winning products.
