Ever since becoming an AVEENO® Ambassador, I’ve had the privilege to try so many fabulous products. From face care to body care products, there are an array of choices perfect for everyday use or to combat and treat specific skin concerns. Seeing that Christmas is literally around the corner (can’t believe we’re only a few more days away!), how great would it be to curate customized DIY beauty gift baskets packed with AVEENO® products for the special ladies in my life?
I can’t believe Christmas is just a few more days away! The holiday season always gets me in the mood for some arts and crafts. Whether it be decorating some freshly baked cookies, curating personalized baskets, or getting creative with my paint strokes, there is nothing more special then adding a few homemade touches when it comes to holiday gifting.
Want to be everyone’s favourite house guest this Summer?!
If you’ve ever thrown a party of your own, you know just how much work it takes to prepare all the food, get the house cleaned, and stocking up the fridge and bar with plenty of refreshments in time for your friends to arrive. Well, on your next invite to a BBQ or house party, make sure you bring the hostess (or host) a little gift of thanks, so that they too, can sit back, enjoy an iced-cold adult beverage and have a good time!
Summer is just around the corner and I’m ready for some outdoor entertaining!
Since we live close by the beach, inviting friends over for food and refreshments after a day long in the sand has got to be one of our favourite weekend rituals during the Summer. Ever since moving slightly further from the city, I much prefer laid back nights at home. But just because we don’t desire partying all night long these days doesn’t mean we don’t want to have a good time, whipping up delicious bbq marinades and concocting a few specialty cocktails for our guests is my idea of a good time!
With the arrival of Spring just around the corner, it’s time to get your home prepared for this beautiful and refreshing season. This time of year is a great opportunity to undergo a thorough Spring cleaning, freshen up the space with new linens and bring in scents of citrus and floral notes.
Investing in beauty products can be quite intimidating.
Unless you’ve tried a specific product before or it has been highly recommended by a trusted source, it’s tough to make a decision on what product to choose. I love collecting beauty samples because they are a great way to try a product before making the full commitment. Samples often come in compact sizes and they’re also perfect packed in my luggage for travel or tucked away in my purse when I’m on the go.
Who else loves printed calendars (like this one)?!
There are so many beautiful ones. They are so pretty that I often want to frame them into art pieces!
The other day, I had a genius idea while starring at the broken IKEA art frame tucked behind my shelf. I remembered that the glass was shattered when the frame dropped while moving and I had thought to myself, “keep it! I’ll find a way to re-purpose it!”. Fast forward 3 years later, I finally found great use for it.
Got a Coffee Lover in your life?
We’ve ALL got a coffee lover in our lives. If you’re still racking your brain on Christmas gift ideas, here is a great last minute, yet impressive option. Gift boxes and baskets have really stepped up their game in the last several years but guess what, you too, can curate a beautiful one without having to spend hundreds of dollars.
A Change of Heart with your Holiday Decorating Style?
No need to worry! I recently shared a first glimpse of my holiday decorating progress and I’m so happy to hear that many of you enjoyed the Nordic inspired design! Despite my love for the simplicity and minimalism that the Nordic style offered, I had a change of heart and couldn’t wait to unleash the full Canadian Christmas spirit in me!
Are Christmas Crackers a part of your holiday traditions?
I love hosting dinner parties over the holiday season and dressing up each guest’s table setting with a Christmas Cracker. Though you can find these at many stores for purchase, spending the time to craft them for loved ones make them extra special, don’t you agree?
