It’s so nice to see that the weather is finally warming up and we are finally seeing some sunshine! Summer as is just around the corner so we’d like to know, how do you get ready for Summer? Ensure you pamper your hair by using a good moisture rich shampoo & conditioner so that it will help withstand the summer heat, start getting those legs ready for shorts and dresses and get those feet looking nice and smooth and ready for sandals and flip flops!
We all know staying out in the sun for too long is bad and not wearing adequate sunscreen is even worse but we all love the sun, don’t we? We also all know that not protecting ourselves properly from the sun causes melasma and melanoma (skin cancer). I am totally a sun worshiper and go out to catch some rays every chance I get, but I do so with caution and with care. For those who know me know I follow a strict skincare routine and I never leave the house without moisturizer and sunscreen. If you love the sun as much as I do, follow these tips and you’ll be able to enjoy the sunshine without having to worry about sun burns.
The build up to having a baby can be a magical time. Along with the flurry of preparation, there’s a burst of energy and excitement for both the mom-to-be and everyone surrounding her. It’s a time of celebration, and there’s no way better to celebrate than a baby shower.
Nine months might seem like a long time to wait to meet your new baby, but when it’s almost go-time and you haven’t quite prepared your home for your impending arrival? That’s when things can get a bit stressful.
Whether you’re 2 weeks away from your due date or still have a few months to wait, here’s a few must-do tips for any parent bringing a new baby home from the hospital:

If you love Pink as a vocalist and love her edgy beauty, you will be happy to hear that she is now the new face of Covergirl promoting their newest mascara “Clump Crusher”. Let’s take a peek at Pink’s latest look by Covergirl Cosmetics.
Pink’s look here is achieved by all of the following products by Covergirl:
When life gets tough, almost every part of your body can suffer, but none will suffer more than your skin. Rough dry air, cool winter nights, and the summer’s beaming sunlight can dry and age your skin to the point where you’ll have serious skin irritation. It doesn’t matter if you’re a guy or a girl either, rough, dry skin can happen to anyone.
It makes me feel lucky to have access to Weleda organic skin care products. This is a company that creates some of the top skin care products on the market, including moisturizing products that will nourish, protect, and make rough, dry skin beautiful again. Here are two of Weleda’s organic skin care products that are sure to take away your skin’s winter blues:
As far as Mother’s Day gifts go, being sent to the spa is a wondrous thing. The sounds of water trickling, the smell of eucalyptus and citrus, and the hours of pampering are a well-deserved treat for any mom. Unfortunately, with busy schedules, even if she wanted to, it would be almost impossible to get to the spa everyday. So this year, the best Mother’s Day gift is one where you can bring the pampering and scents of the spa home to her.
Out of all of the baby products I’ve purchased over the years, I have to say the stroller purchase is what I spent the most time on. I’d spend hours and hours testing, researching, and finding the perfect fit for my growing family, and like anyone with multiple kids, I’ve gone through several strollers during the various stages of their childhood.
The fact of the matter is, I like new strollers. I like how they’ve evolved from big, clunky, and creaky. I like how they have suspension and are as easy to push down the sidewalk as they are across a field, and I really like how they have 5-point harnesses and can recline when a quick nap is in order. When it comes to strollers, I always have room for one more, so when I tested out two of Guzzie & Guss’s sleek, compact strollers, I was hooked.
From TaeBo and hot yoga to the Shake Weight and Tony Little’s Gazelle, there never seems to be a shortage of fitness trends. In fact, a section of my video library is dedicated solely to fitness DVDs I’ve purchased in moments of weakness – unfortunately, as it turns out, just buying the DVDs doesn’t make you fit. So sad. But I digress. One “trend” whose roots date back to the 1930’s is Pilates.
Looking to update your look for Summer? Whether it's a look for hitting up the beach or a night out with the girls, we’ve got all the CoverGirl products you need to craft the perfect look. Browse over 400 lipsticks, lip-glosses, eye shadows and more from CoverGirl.
So you eat right, work out, and focus on staying fit, but how well do you take care of your skin? For many, it’s just too difficult to figure out all of the different labels and products, so they stick to the same-old same-old when it comes to skin care products.
It’s responsible for keeping nerves and blood cells healthy as well as playing a key role in the building and regulation of DNA. Low levels of this important vitamin can also make you feel tired, depressed and always under the weather.
To say that Burt’s Bees has come a long way over the last 30 years is a serious understatement. From its humble beginnings in the 1980’s, when the Burt of Burt’s Bees®, Burt Shavitz, sold quarts of honey off the tailgate of his pick-up truck, Burt’s Bees has grown into a multimillion dollar company offering more than 150 natural personal care products in 30,000 retail locations worldwide – including Best Buy. Yes, Best Buy! Needless to say, I was more than thrilled when I was asked to test some of the Burt’s Bees products.
For the past week, I set aside my go-to beauty products and committed myself to the Burt’s Bees line. Some products I loved, and some, well, not so much. Here’s my take:
For some, the hardest thing about weight loss is deciding where to start. After all, we’re bombarded with so much information, from books to the web, on how to lose weight that it’s difficult to actually choose just one method or map out a workable plan.
But research clearly shows that to kick your fat loss into high gear and keep that weight from returning, you’ll need to do more than head out for a brisk walk occasionally. Using technology to support your weight loss, like fitness watches, digital scales, and the latest in exercise equipment, can kick your workouts into high gear. Here’s a few ways to lose weight using technology:
Parents have come a long way from the days of the baby walker. For moms these days, there’s a much safer alternative to old style baby equipment – the ExerSaucer. These stationary bouncers are fun, interactive, and can be a new mom’s best friend.
Not only are ExerSaucers a way to free up your hands so you can make lunch, clean up a bit, or just sit down for a minute, they’re fun and stimulating for your baby. The latest Evenflo ExerSaucers are full of great age-appropriate toys your baby can swat, pull, and even take away with them when you pick them up. And while they’re playing, they’re working to build gross motor skills in a safe, stationary play structure.
What woman doesn’t like makeup? But when it comes down to actually choosing makeup kits, makeup brushes, and the best skincare products from the absolute plethora of brands available, it can be a little overwhelming.
February is Heart Health Month, and there has never been a better time to sit back and take a good long look at your daily habits. Are you eating for a healthy heart? Do you exercise for weight loss to promote overall good health? If the answer is no, it might be just the time to change a few of your habits.
Thankfully, keeping your heart healthy is a lot easier than you might think. Check out a few of the great devices you can use to help prevent heart and stroke issues for years to come.
It’s a brand new year, and after a few months of winter (and a ton of Christmas goodies) there’s never been a better time to get your health back on track. After all, being fit gives you the ability to keep up with your family, stay strong during the stress of the usual day to day ups and downs, and will even help you sleep better at night.
If you’re interested in getting up and off the couch and living a healthy life, but you have no idea where to start, here are a few great ways to get going in 2013:
Having out of town friends and family visit can be a highlight of any holiday season. Create a comfortable and luxurious guest bedroom by starting with the basics and building from there. Once you have the foundation of your guest room you can tailor it for whoever is coming to stay.

Well it has been a good run but the stash has to go! I have raised my share for awareness of men’s health and prostate cancer (Thank you to all my donors). As this was my first year, I am very proud that I was able to contribute to this cause.
With the new addition of Proctor & Gamble products online, you can now shop for your favourite brands, like Oral B, Crest, Clairol, and Oil of Olay, all from bestbuy.ca. I got the opportunity to try out a selection of P&G products and since one of my many jobs during my university years was in skincare and makeup, I know what it takes to get fresh faced and party ready for the Holidays!
Do you know what time it is? Do you know what time it is !?!? No, seriously, do you happen to have the time? Well I do, as I had a chance to try the sleek and stylish Black Dice guru on for size... and then once I confirmed that it fit, I wore it around for awhile, just to see how I liked it.
When it comes to handbags, I think I can say with confidence that I’m not the only woman out there who believes, to my very core, that you can never have too many. Ever. The same goes with shoes, but everyone knows that! But what is a handbag? Is it merely a place to stash everything from laptops to lipstick? No. A handbag is an important accessory in a woman’s – and sometimes a man’s – wardrobe.

Here are 15 great products that you probably didn’t know are just a point and click away from becoming another person crossed off your holiday shopping list.
