When looking at beauty brands, it's important for me to find products that a) deliver on their promises and b) don't have harsh ingredients that can harm my sensitive skin. Canadian brand Jouviance checks both of these boxes. I've been using the Skin GlowFX and the LashFX and both products have been amazing! They were created by a dermatologist which makes it suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive skin. These products are now staples in my beauty routine!

Skin GlowFX is skincare before all. It's a skin perfecting cream that you can wear without makeup or as a base for your makeup routine. It blurs imperfections while restoring luminosity to your skins natural radiance. It has silk powder to tighten and reduce the appearance of pores. Skin GLow FX even has anti-aging active ingredients to protect your skin from external aggressions. And bonus, it also helps make your makeup long lasting. Winning at everything, am I right? Skin GlowFX has no silicones, no oils and is non comedogene. So you get that gorgeous, dewy glow without feeling or looking greasy. After my daily moisturizer, I simply apply this with my fingertips along my t-zone and where my pores are dilated and voila. Follow it up with a BB or CC cream or your favourite foundation and look at that skin glow! Get yours today here.

The LashFX is also an amazing product. It's a twofer, and there's not much better than a twofer. On one end, there is the Tinted Fortifying Base which contains a powerful active-ingredient and vitamin E to help protect your brows and lashes against external aggressors. It comes in a universal black colour so you can wear it its own, or you can put on your favourite mascara for an even bigger effect. On the other side of the tube, there's the Night Fortifying Serum which you apply at night to your lashes and/or brows. This serum has a synergy of 5 powerful active-ingredients to help strengthen, fortify and stimulate lash and brow growth. Both ends have a special ingredient called Capixyl at a concentration of 5%, the maximum concentration for a lash and brow treatment. LashFX has been proven to grow thicker and longer lashes and eyebrow hairs by an average of 45% over 8 weeks. Get yours here.

Jouviance has become a go-to brand for me and these products are part of my beauty routine, both morning and night! You must check out the Skin GlowFX and LashFX by Jouviance. I can't rave about them enough. Get yours today at https://en.jouviance.com.

Happy Friday! One week, two posts! Who am I!? Just a girl trying to get back on track with her passions. Let's talk about fashion uniforms. Is it okay to have one? I feel like there's such a bad connotation to having a go-to look that you know works for you. Maybe it stems from kids who wore uniforms to school... I mean who wore a uniform and didn't complain about it every once in a while. I complained about it probably on a weekly basis. I looked forward to those free days when you got to wear your own clothes. We all did! I wanted to show everyone 'look guys, I have a sense of style!' It's that one day where you didn't blend in.


Fast forward 13 years, and my views on uniforms have changed completely; I'm actually a fan! Now don't get me wrong, I don't think we need to be wearing the same thing over and over again. Nor do I think we should all look the same or be dressed the same. However, there is something to be said about knowing what works and sticking to it. As a kid, I probably never admitted this, but wearing a uniform also had it's upside. I never had to worry about making an outfit and wondering if this goes with that and all those little stresses. Once you got your uniform tailored, it just always looked the way it looked. 


In my everyday life, I think I wear high waisted jeans and a t-shirt or sweater with flats or sneakers five out of seven days a week. I'm running after a toddler for most of my day. I could wear sweatpants. I  could wear leggings. But I don't. Those are just not my style. I like a good fitting high waist pair of denim. Skinny jeans, mom jeans, boyfriend jeans, girlfriend jeans, straight leg, boot cut, whatever the cut. As long as their high waisted, fit the booty and I can bend over or breakout in a run at any given moment, I'm good to go. 


Do you feel my love for a good pair of denim? That's why when I have to dress up, I still want to reach for them. This is when I have to swap the tee for a pretty blouse, some dainty necklaces and a pretty lace peek-a-boo bra. Throw in a pretty pump and a bag to boot and I'm in my happy place! I also just love the combination of jeans and a pointed toe shoe. So the moral of the story is, It's okay to have a uniform. I look at it kind of like a comfort food recipe; it's always good, but sometimes you want it extra spicy to kick it up a notch. You with me? 


         
        

turtleneck + stripes

1.10.18






Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend. You guys know I'm a fan of fall. It's my favourite season. I love all the deep colours, the layers, the dark lipsticks - I'm here for all of it. But I also still love a pretty pastels, like these pale pink mules. These have been my favourite shoes since I purchased them in the spring, so naturally, I don't want to hang them up just yet. Let's just say they're staying in the rotation until there's snow on the ground. Just because the seasons have changed, it doesn't mean you can't transition your favourite pieces into autumn! I wore the pale pink shoes with some mom jeans and a turtleneck. Turtlenecks are quintessentially fall, so this outfit makes sense for this time of year. Although this turtleneck has a bunch of deep jewel tones in the stripes, there are some pale pink stripes in there which tie in the shoes a bit more.

Speaking of turtlenecks, this entire look makes me think of the 90's. I don't really remember what it was like actually living in the 90's, however, I do remember what the fashion looked like in Friends and Fresh Prince. Looking back at it today, there are definitely elements I love about that decade. I love the gold jewelery. I own nothing silver (or white gold) except for my wedding ring and some old Tiffany's jewelry. Another thing I love from the 90's are the mom jeans. Boy, oh boy am I glad that mom jeans are in! I'd be wearing them regardless because they do wonders for this mom (yup, I'm pointing to myself!). They work for my hips and butt and they work for my mommy pouch; it's a win win, really. Turtlenecks are another favourite from the 90's. They were usually done in a solid black or a cream, which I love, but I'm also here for stripes and other patterns. Overall though, my favourite thing about the 90's was the minimalism. Think loose fitting white button down shirt, high waisted mom jeans with a black ankle boot and barely any accessories. Or maybe an oversized blazer over a black sleeveless turtleneck tucked into some bomb ass jeans. Simply perfection. Just let me have my big 80's hair and throw me in the time machine!
