The Skoah Skin Care Dream

Beauty, Lifestyle















Hello lovelies! Today I am so excited to share with you all about my experience with Skoah Skin Care! I was invited for a fully customized, Facialiscious facial at the Skoah in Willow Park here in Calgary. At Skoah, they call facials “skin care workouts”. The workouts include some deep cleansing and exfoliation, customized masks, and an amazing muscle-melting massage. But don’t you worry, these workouts are relaxing, blissful, and ‘sweat-free’ :) All their products are made with amazing high-quality, highly-refined lipids and oils such as olive oil, shea butter, and coconut oils. Yum! They even have amazing “skin gym” membership options to get monthly facials, including perks like getting 10% off on their products and special member-only gifts!

So can I just say again, it was literally the best facial I have ever had. Skoah is one of the first salons in the industry who focuses just on facials. Amazing! They are so attentive to exactly what your skin needs, and they even give you a little “report card” to help keep track of the work you’ve done for your skin. I also got to peruse their amazing line of products and opted for simply adding a few products to my existing skin care routine. Since I haven’t found a good toner in a while, I chose the Tonik, which smells amazing and reminds me of my facial every time a spritz :) Then I also got the hydradew mask, which helps add that extra bit of moisture I need for these dry Calgary winters! Plus, it smells like fresh cut Mellon, which is always a necessity!

Now, if you love a facial as much as I do, or just know that you are way overdue for that skin workout, you are in luck! I have teamed up with the lovely ladies at Skoah to give all my amazing readers a special offer!

My Favorite Makeup Removers















Hello lovelies! Excited to share today’s blog with you all! Just as much as a love getting dolled up and all dressed up, washing it all off at the end of the day is an absolute must for me. When I was younger I often reasoned my way out of washing my face in the evenings, because I mean, who is ever in the mood?! However, somewhere along the line I got a newsflash!! Washing your face at the end of the day not only removes your make-up, but it also washes off the dust and dirt from your entire day. When you think about it, your face definitely gets around! So yes, it is a must. No need to be walking around with the dirt of the day any longer, now is there?

That said, there are a few things that I cannot live without, and one of those is my absolute favorite makeup remover from the Shoppers Drug Mart exclusive Quo brand. These little pink pockets are a lifesaver! They are the perfect eye make-up remover pads, great for travel and perfectly removes while being gentle on the skin. To go hand-in-hand with the mini pouches, is the full-face makeup remover wipes. These are a great pairing to clear off the rest of your face. Plus, they are often offered in a duo-pack option so keep your eyes pealed!

Another one of my favorite is the Take the Day Off remover from Clinique. I always seem to need a little extra to remove my eyeliner and get it completely clean. This Clinique remover is perfectly designed for lids, lashes, and lips so it definitely gets the job done. (Keep in mind, if you have eyelash extensions on, always go for the oil-free option otherwise it will tend to lift away the glue from the lashes as well.)

What are some of your favorites? Would love to hear your thoughts! <3

Lush Cosmetics Easter Collection















Hello lovelies! I can’t believe Easter is already around the corner! Absolutely love Easter time and have so many amazing memories of spending time with family, doing Easter egg hunts, and of course eating way too many mini eggs :) Today I am excited to share some of the amazing Easter Collection that they have at LUSH! My room smells ahh-amazing 24/7 with all of these products, and I mean, those bathbombs are exactly what you need at the end of a long day!

Not only are all the Easter goodies so flipping cute, they are also so great to use! I am honestly so impressed. And just so by the way, their Chocolate lip scrub smells exactly like chocolate – what!!? Yes! You will definitely be tempted to eat it :P The Flopsy face wash jelly is another one of my favorite – I dare you to take the whole thing out and see what it is! Hint: they hop around and rhymes with “funny”.

Now I have to say, the golden egg is handsdown my favorite of them all. Not even sure why, and perhaps it’s just because I love gold? Be warned, it can be quite messy with all the gold glitter around, but who doesn’t love glitter? :) Literally don’t think I’ve had this much fun treating myself to home spa days in a while! Guess it will have to become a new Easter tradition! What are some of your Easter traditions? <3

New Hair and Blondielocks for Spring!











Hello lovelies! So… I am just realizing I am super far behind on blog content!! But nonetheless, I still wanted to share my new blondielocks with you all! As some of you may have seen on Instagram or even in person, I got my hair nice and brightened up for the Spring season thank so the lovely Hailey Jacobsen! Check her out here on her journey as the owner of her very own salon, Inner Beauty.

Absolutely love getting my hair done, especially after it’s grown out a bit and the colour has faded out into my natural gold.. not the biggest fan, but learning to embrace it when it comes! To keep my hair super blonde, I always use the Unite Blonda shampoo. Purple shampoos are great for keeping the tone under control and leaving it looking freshly done longer. Because I get it coloured quite a bit, a good hair mask is always a must! One of my favorites is the Kérastase brand, which makes your hair feel amazing! However, on a more day-to-day basis I also love the Moroccan Oil Restorative hair mask or the L’Oreal Total Repair hair mask.

Taking care of the health of your hair is one of the most important things you can do, no matter if it is long or short. Giving it time to heal between colors, diligently giving it a good conditioning therapy, and not putting repetitive pressure on your hair is key. Keep in mind, as it is with most things, everyone’s hair is unique! The best is to learn more about what your hair tends to do and what you should focus on to keep it looking its best. So next time you are sitting in that chair, don’t forget to ask your stylist to tell you a little more about your hair <3

Let’s Talk Eyelash Extensions!


with Outlash Beauty Boutique














Hello Lovelies! Today we are talking eyelash extensions :) I had the pleasure of being invited to Outlash Beauty Boutique to get my eyelashes done. It is the cutest boutique in the beautiful Inglewood area, and I had the absolute best time – thanks ladies!! Although this is not my first time getting them, I am so glad I did, again! This time around I was able to get the Silk 2D/3D lashes, done by the lovely Claire Mayo. With this set, it is a perfect blend of two-to-one and three-to-one silk lashes to your own. It gives you the extra volume that you need, plus the perfect curl.

Outlash was founded by Jessica Lapuz and started out as a creative outlet. After a whirlwind adventure of travel, doing lashes gave her the freedom as well as the relaxation that she needed. Jessica loves making women feel more confident in who they are, which is AMAZING! That is the absolute best feeling ever, seeing women blossom into the beautiful people they are, inside and out.

For me, getting lashes is a real treat. I love anything that enhances your already beautiful features! It really makes your eyes come alive, and it’s definitely great for always being picture ready :) The key to lasting lashes definitely lies in the application, and of course in how well you take care of your lashes afterwards. Remember that for the first 24 hours, water is a no-go! So make sure you plan your day accordingly. I am a little hardcore with my eyelash care, including my big buggy sleeping mask, brushing my lashes, and washing them with LashWash – but I wouldn’t have it any other way. You absolutely have to care for your lashes to get the most out of them and keep them looking beautiful!

Are you thinking about getting lashes? Well I am SUPER excited to give you lovelies a discount code!! Use the code “carli15” to get an amazing 15% off your next service at Outlash <3
