Heat Holders Canada Review | The Warmest Socks, Hats & Gloves for Cold Winters

Heat Holders Socks Review

The evenings are getting darker, leaves have fallen, and cold-weather is right around the corner. Having been perpetually cold most winters of my life, I finally know exactly how to dress in order to be toasty warm - even on the coldest days. Much of this is thanks to the brand Heat Holders, which I first discovered last year. Each piece from this brand is made with their patented HeatWeaver technology. The lush lining traps warmth into its long loop pile, and creates insulation that never fails. The best part is that these items aren't bulky, and are actually quite fashionable! Read on to see mine and Joseph's favourite items that we can't wait to use during ski season.

How To Start a Blog, Become a YouTuber, or Influencer | Classically Contemporary x Classy on the Run

Subscribe to Alanna’s Channel HERE


1. Define your niche: laser focus in on a topic people always ask for your help or opinion on 

2. Learn which platform is the best right now and one that you’re confident making content on, focus on that 1-2 platforms so it isn’t overwhelming Invest in your space, equipment, materials and content tools to ensure high-quality content 

3. Test, adjust, try to understand what length and style of content performs best 

4. Once you start creating, be wary of spam emails trying to get you to pay for things, add do-follow links, plug their product or service without payment or compensation (you owe people NOTHING!) 

5. Want free products? Show the brand you love them already! Create 2-3 posts using your favourite items from the brand, then send them either an email or direct message sharing your work. Ask if they could add you to their media list for future product releases and sampling opportunities in exchange for content features!

best scrub gommage review

Let’s talk about SCRUBS 🤩

As much as I’ve become more gentle with my skin, this girl loves a little scrub-a-dub action at night. Especially after removing makeup, SPF and the daily gunk, using an enzyme and/or physical exfoliant makes my skin feel renewed. Here’s what I’ve been loving.

Comparing Four Glossy Pink Lip Balms that Change Colour with your Skin's pH

Glossy Pink Lip Balm

Remember Smashbox O Gloss when it totally owned the pink pH adjusting lip balm category? I was never crazy about that wet gloss look, but I've recently really warmed up (ha) to the idea of these shade-adjusting balms to give a pop of pink for my Zoom meetings. I featured the Henné Azalea Balm in my quarantine "work from home" makeup essentials post last year, and these are totally along that same vein with the pretty pink glow. Check out the swatches below!

PIXI Body and Skincare Review | Glycolic Peel, Milky Mist, Rose Balm and More!

PIXI Body Care

Body care is a very important part of my skincare routine. For the most part, I take my facial skincare down my neck, onto my chest and onto my back. I find that some body lotions can be too thick and heavy for my combination skin, and my back and chest have a tendency to breakout really easily. I’ve shared my love of Pixi makeup nonstop over the years, and the praise doesn’t stop there. Let’s talk about my favourite Pixi skincare items for face and the rest of the body!

Travel First Aid Kit DIY

Have you ever been on vacation, and needed that one random drugstore staple that was just out of reach? Whether it's a spot treatment for a pesky blemish, some dish soap to take a stain out, or polysporin to treat a cut, I have a list that you won't leave home without on your next getaway.

Dior Lip Maximizer Gloss & Lip Glow Balm Reviews

dior lip products

Oh, j’adore dior.

My love for Dior has been a long time coming. I haven’t always been a consumer of their lavish and luxury products, mostly opting for the lower-cost dupes at the drugstore. But after falling head over heels for their backstage foundation (thanks to a Sephora *deluxe* gift with purchase sample) my list of brand favourites has just continued building ever since. and funny enough, all of the full-size products I have purchased recently have been a result of both regular and deluxe-size samples received with purchases made over the years.
