Hello Lovelies, and happy Tuesday to you all! Over here on my side I have been thee busiest of all time, trying to make sure all the client work is done, and then squeezing in some me time in between it all. But I have to say, I’m loving every minute of it! It feels great to focus on working towards my goals, and really getting to apply it to all areas of my life. My biggest thing of all is to stay hydrated during the day. I have my big ol’ Starbucks cup basically permanently glued to my desk so I can get in as much water as possible!
Today I wanted to share another little something that I keep at my desk! For my birthday a little while ago I got the at your desk Remedy Bar by Saje Natural Wellness from my dear friend, Sarah, and it is absolutely amazing! It is a combo of their three most supportive remedies to make the most of your work day. They are specifically picked for the Remedy bar to focus your mind, ease any tension, and set the tone for a healthy, happy, & productive day! Since I haven’t really been the essential oils go-to gal, this little bar has been a great introduction to some of the most applicable to my everyday life.
The first is the stress release, which is a blend of lavender (my fave!), orange, chamomile, and vetiver. It works well for inducing relaxation and these essential oils are known for the stress relieving, soothing, qualities. Next is the eater’s digest, which is honestly the first one I tried. I have been actively working to heal my gut health recently, so the peppermint and fennel essential oils in this one are great for soothing discomfort and supporting healthy digestive function – and who wouldn’t want that, right? Finally, there is the quick study, which helps with mental alertness and clarity. Although I’m no longer a student, late nights at my desk definitely call for a little extra help concentrating! This is for sure the one I have been using most. What have you been loving from Saje, and what should I try next? <3

Hello Lovelies! I often get questions about what makeup I’m using at the moment and what my tips and tricks are, so I thought I’d share a little bit about what’s in my makeup bag at the moment. It’s a nice mix of Mac Cosmetics, Sephora goodies, and some of my favorite drugstore finds. Lately I love to start with the Neutrogena CC cream, to really smooth out the look of my skin and add some SPF protects to boot.
Next I apply my favorite concealer from MAC Cosmetics, all around the eyes to brighten them up and cover any trouble spots. I apply foundation next with a Lise Watier foundation brush. Right now I am using the studio sculpt from MAC, which looks amazing on my skin. I use my beauty blender to smooth it all out. What works best for me is first spraying the beauty blender with my Prep+Prime spray from MAC, just to make it easier to blend.
Often times I go in again with the concealer and use it as a contour base. Then it’s time to shape my eyebrows. Right now I’m using the brow artist shaper from L’Oréal. From there it’s easy to go in with a bronzer to do some more contouring. My absolute favorite highlighter right now is the Champagne Pop from Becca. To finish it off, I use the MAC powder blush in color “Dame” to brighten up my cheeks. When applying eyeshadow I love using the Paint Pot from MAC, which is amazing for a long-lasting look.
Next I use the Revlon Colorstay eyeliner, which is easy to blend and really makes your eyes pop. Before applying my mascara, I spritz some Prep+Prime spray to set everything I’ve applied and then go over with the Mineralize Skinfish Powder to finish off the look. Finally, I use the Rimmel London Lash Accelerator Mascara. I keep coming back to this mascara and love the look it gives! To add a final touch, I have been using this amazing lip plumper from essence, which has really surprised me in how amazing it looks on!
So there you have it, my everyday look and some of my favorite things in my makeup bag right now! What are your favorites? <3

Hello Lovelies! Seems like a few days flew by since I last posted on the blog. Took a little break from the fun and creative to catch up on some important next steps and strategies for my business. Since the weather has been completely up and down, hot then cold lately, I thought I’d share some of my favorite Dermalogica products that I am using right now.
With the dry cold it is sometimes hard to keep up with your skin as it tries to adapt to the lack of moisture. Plus, with all the new year cleanses and clean eating my body has been getting rid of a lot of toxins, and although this feels great, I definitely have to stand prepared to tackle my skin!
I always, always start out with the special cleansing gel to give my skin a nice clean wash in the shower. This formula is calming and not at all harsh on my skin, which is a must! Next I follow with the skin-smoothing cream, which is amazing and so well suited for skin that is often sensitive like mine is. It gives the perfect balance of moisture and smooths out the skin.
When trouble spots come up, my two must-haves for this is the overnight clearing gel and the concealing spot treatment. The overnight clearing gel is great to put on before bed to let it work during the night while you sleep. The concealing spot treatment is a tinted breakout minimizer, which works so well as a concealer while also working to treat any troubled spots that need the extra attention.
Both of these are from the mediBac clearing system or line of products, which controls breakouts without compromising the skin’s integrity and allows you to have clearer and healthier skin overall. What are your favorites when it comes to skincare? <3

Hello lovelies! Today on the blog I want to share some new products I got to try from Lavami Natural Skin Care. These smell amazing, and are made with only the most natural ingredients. I love the Lavami philosophy that what we put on our skin matters. “Great skin takes commitment, not a miracle.” It all comes down to using the right products with the right nutrients for your skin type. We all love clear, glowing, even-toned skin. So take the time to learn about your skin and make it beautiful! When I was younger I always had to take care to only put gentle, natural products on my face and even today I am so diligent in caring for my skin. It’s never too late to start, and trust me, you will always be glad you did!
The Soothe Bath soak is incredible! Perfect for sore muscles from the gym :) the eucalyptus essential oil and peppermint leaf combo is so soothing and great for combating those pesky cold symptoms that are sticking around this time of year. I die for anything shea butter, and this natural deodorant is full of it. For all those out there who are looking for a natural substitute, this it is! There is also the “Fresh” flavor that works great for those who have a more sensitive skin :) The Ranger soap is so unique, and is made with charcoal and ground coffee beans sourced from Calgary Heritage Roasting Company! Love, love, love! Let me know if you’ve had a chance to try a few gorgeous Lavami products <3

Hello Lovelies! I am so excited to share our spa pedicure day at Distilled Beauty Bar with you. Some of my favorite ladies and I headed out to get our toes all prettied up :) The girls at Distilled were so much fun and we all made our choice from the Toe Bar menu. Most of us had the Petite Pedicure, which is customized to what you want done, but it is short and sweet. The service also comes with complimentary tea or coffee to keep you settled in, nice and cozy. I love that you can have a snack, get your nails done, and take a coffee to go! Their hummus is to die for, and I love me some Rosso coffee!! You definitely feel spoiled and treated like a lady on every visit <3
