When it comes to my skin, I am obsessed with keeping it well moisturized from head to toe.   Clean, moisturized skin is the perfect canvas to create whatever look you like.   However, in the summer months I tend to wear less makeup so my skin really does need to be the star.  These are a few products I currently have in my moisturizing arsenal.

1.  Barefoot Venus Coconut Kiss: A body moisturizer with macadamia nut oil, sweet almond oil, and silk amino acids.

2. Flexitol Heel Balm:  The only cream I have found that works on my dry, cracked feet.  A miracle cream!

3. Dermalogica skin hydrating masque: A great quick mask that only takes about 10 minutes.  I like to do this a couple times a week.

4. Stratamark: A gel that helps prevent and treat stretch marks.  It’s true there is no actual cure for these ugly little  marks a pregnant belly (hips and boobs) get, but regularly treating these areas with the right products can definitely help.

5.  Lush Therapy Bar: I use the Stratamark directly on the couple stretch marks I currently have.  This Lush bar is a great moisturizer for all over plus it smells heavenly.


With the official arrival of Summer I have switched gears with my beauty routine.  I’ve been busy testing new products to find some new favorites for this season.  Beautiful glowy skin is must for me.  Lush Herbalism has been a perfect daily cleanser for me.  I love that it gently exfoliates too.  Pretty skin high lighters, a water resistant blush, along with a bold liner, and natural hued nails and gloss complete my beachy look.  We all know that sun protection is a must but don’t forget about your pout.  On sun soaked days be sure to layer on some sun protection under your gloss.  For Summer, I’m a sucker for some fabulous over-sized earrings.  Large hoops or a big metallic drop earring give instant glam to your go-to sundress.    

Revlon Photoready Skinlights c/0 London Drugs,  Estee Lauder  (c/0) Heat Wave gold shadow,  Lise Watier Pink Plaid nail polish (c/o London Drugs),  Lush (c/o) Herbalism facial cleanser,  Cargo water resistant blush (c/o London Drugs),  Vichy (c/o) lip protection stick (SPF 30),  Cargo Texas Liner (c/0 London Drugs),  Aerin Shell Lip Gloss (c/o Estee Lauder),  Earrings: Forever 21 (an amazing bargain of $1.80)


I feel like my trip to Maui last month put warm weather on my mind and has been clearly influencing my shopping.  In particular I’ve been drawn to orange sunset hues with some pretty pinks mixed in.

These are a few treats to make their way into my closet recently.  I’m completely in love with the Maison Scotch collection this season.  No surprise there.  I adore their clothes.  I bought these bright orange wedges before my trip.  They are quite comfy and crazy bright.  What’s not to love?  This new happy scented fragrance by Lush has become a fast favorite of mine.  It boasts fresh scents of orange, tangerine, and sandlewood and truly smells like a warm summer’s day.  I was recently given the chance to preview the new S/S ’13 collection by Estee Lauder.  This new nail lacquer will be next up on my manicure hit parade.


Lush, the company known for their fresh handmade cosmetics is coming out with a fabulous new line of beauty products.  Beautiful, amazing products that will play up your personality.




 The pigments are incredible.  They are so rich and vibrant and go on so smoothly.  There are a great variety of products like Liquid Lips ($22.95), Liquid Eyeliner ($22.95), and Cream Eyeshadow ($22.95).    There are 30 products in the range and all of them are vegan.


On top of these eye popping colours, they are offering up Translucent Powder ($18.95), Skin Tints ($18.95), and Mascara $18.95)!  I’m in love with how the skin tint products give my skin a natural looking glow.  Even just some skin tint and mascara makes a great summertime fresh face.


The Emotional Brilliance Collection launches on July 21st in all LUSH stores worldwide and online at www.lush.ca
