If you are Canadian then you have undoubtedly watched an episode of Degrassi. As an 80’s baby, I was more of a Next Generation audience member than the original.
One of the hunkiest dudes was Peter. He was good girl Darcy’s (played by Shenae Grimes of 90210) boyfriend and in one episode she outs him for having gnarly, jungo breath. Harsh, Darcy. Real harsh.
This is a very roundabout way of getting onto the topic of bad breath (and eventually a homemade mouthwash you can make), but cute boys distract me and this is what happens. Oops! [Keep Reading]
Summer’s great and all, but there is one thing that comes with summer that I could totally live without; bugs!
As a child, my family always went camping for two weeks in the summer and we took it pretty seriously. Picture tents, sleeping bags, freshly caught fish cooked over a fire and outhouses.
The Taylor’s did not believe in Glam-ping, oh no! There were no air mattresses under our sleeping bags and I’m fairly certain the closest I came to showering during these two weeks was splish-splashing in the nearby river or lake. [Keep Reading]
Do you think you can live without shampoos and hair conditioners? I know that is a greasy-hair-nightmare to many women, especially those with long hair. But just imagine how generations before us lived when our favourite hair care products weren’t even a thought yet.
I cringe just thinking of it!
I recently read somewhere that soap was used on hair before, but it showed bad results that’s why some people melt the soap and add some oils. Thanks to Kasey Hebert, we now have shampoos that give our hair some tender loving care. [Keep Reading]
Not too long ago I underwent a little surgery. Two weeks prior my doctor informed me that I was no longer allowed to shave. Oh yes, you heard that right. No shaving of the legs, underarms, bikini line; nada! Apparently shaving puts you at risk of infection which is a no-no before surgery.
I think it’s important that you know I’m not a very hairy individual. After two weeks of no hair removal, even the best of us become as soft as a puppy’s leg. [Keep Reading]
People seem to be going bananas over BB creams lately. To be perfectly honest, when I first heard of them I had to google what BB stood for. For those misinformed beauty bloggers like myself, it stands for ‘blemish balm’ or ‘blemish base.’
Curious to know more? Let’s get into it… [Keep Reading]
Ladies, it’s time for a full-body detox.
No, I don’t mean that kind of detox.
In fact, this cleanse won’t leave you hungry and you don’t have to drink one single gulp of green sludge.
Instead, we’re going to work from the outside-in to rid your skin of gnarly cellulite dimples and have you beach body ready in a few short weeks. [Keep Reading]
Cellulite removal would be so simple if it only involved rubbing in cream twice a day.
Sadly, conquering cellulite involves a little more than slathering on one of my many DIY cellulite scrubs and lotions.
In fact, to truly get to the root of your dimpled derriere you need to put in a little effort…some physical effort, that is! [Keep Reading]
Cellulite can be nasty business because it is often a result of genetics. Of course there are several of contributing factors like exercise and diet, but it’s tough fighting your DNA.
Mother Nature is a stubborn b*tch though and can tackle your genetic cellulite in a way you only thought capable by products like Finulite.
How does she do this? Listen up!
Like with so many other illnesses and skin/body related issues, mother nature has provided us with several alternatives. In the case of cellulite, it is esential oils. [Keep Reading]
Have you ever been to a true Italian pizzeria and watched the chef prepare their dough?
With a labour of love they knead, push and stretch the dough and continue to do so for at least 10 minutes. The firmer the hand, the better the result.
Oddly enough, the same rings true for massaging away cellulite.
Cellulite forms from fat build ups deep within the layering of our skin. It becomes more noticeable when our connective tissue fibres push down against it causing the blood flow to restrict, engorging the fat cells.
This is what causes that nasty dimpling effect we all loathe.
Hair is one of our greatest natural accessories. We can cut it, style it and color it.
Eventually, all this play takes its toll and our locks can look a little lack-lustre and frizzy.
Of course there are simple DIY hair masks and treatments we can use, but what if I told you that you could eat your way to stronger, lusher locks?
Yeah, baby! I’m giving you permission to eat to your heart’s…err…hair’s content! [Keep Reading]
