The Top Hair Accessory of Winter 2019

The knotted headband has saved me over the past few months, especially on second or third day hair. I simply brush all my hair back and throw on the band. I find that they even look good with glasses, which isn't easy since most headbands just don't jive with glasses. The most important part to note is that these are hard headbands covered with the silk knotted fabric. My head shape does not jive with stretchy or soft, round headbands. I find that I'll be clenching my head muscles (yes, that's a thing) to keep them from slipping off - or repositioning 500 times throughout the day. In addition, these ones with the opening at the bottom allow me to wear my hair down, and there are no bumps at the nape of my neck.

My Experience With SlimWave | Muscle Toning Without Working Out

SlimWave is a body sculpting, non-surgical treatment that uses EMS (electro muscle stimulation) technology to target and tone your muscles. The 45-minute treatments create firmness and strength by stimulating the body's natural fat burning and toning process - without having to haul your a** to the gym.

With SlimWave you can also target several areas at the same time. This stimulation from the electrical currents also increases circulation to the skin, which will improve texture, tone and reduce cellulite (waa hoo!). The interesting part of SlimWave is that it works 100% of your muscle fibres, while exercise alone only works around 60% of muscle fibres. It is exercise for those who aren't able to do the work, or a fabulous way to tone up the most stubborn areas of the body (hi, lower abs and inner thighs). Especially in the winter or during busy times of the year, it’s great to have the option to keep your muscles activated through a low-impact, high-intensity treatment like SlimWave.

Full Face of CATRICE & AVON | Fall 2019

Full Face of CATRICE

As a longtime lover of Essence Cosmetics (reviews here) I've been wanting to try their sister brand CATRICE Cosmetics for many many years. Hailing from Germany, this is a European drugstore brand that has finally made it's way to North America. You can find CATRICE at Shoppers Drug Mart - shop online here. Below you'll find my tutorial using and reviewing a ton of products from CATRICE, and a few new items from AVON as well.

QUO Fall 2019 New Releases | Review

QUO Fall 2019 New Releases

When I shop for beauty products, it's almost exclusively at Shoppers Drug Mart. Between their PC Optimum Points and access to both high and low-end brands, I always leave feeling satisfied. When thinking about my favourite brands for makeup brushes, low-end options like Real Techniques, EcoTools, ELF and Royal and Langnickle come to mind. That being said, a few of my absolute favourites are from a very old QUO set that I received for Christmas. QUO has always been an intriguing brand, and one that I've gone to for manicure tools and the occasional blush. I was fortunate enough to dive into their skincare, makeup, awesome new brushes at an event this past spring, all of which I've used in heavy rotation. Quo’s new brush collection is completely synthetic, cruelty-free, vegan friendly and responsibly made. The bristles are called “the new naturals” and will last a lifetime if cared for properly.
