Getting festive with Canadian Tire

Protect your skin this winter with Olay

Fall brings beautiful changing leaves, but also chilly temperatures and harsh environments for your skin. Olay‘s new collection helps to cushion the blow to sensitive skin.

First, there’s their new gel mask collection. I love gel products, because I feel like my skin absorbs them much easier. Olay’s Hydrating Overnight Gel Mask with Vitamin E infuses skin with nourishing moisture while you snooze. The combination is pleasantly light, and my skin felt soft and moist when I woke up after using the mask overnight. The hydrating mask is my favourite, but the overnight gel mask also comes in two other formulas, firming and brightening.

Next, there’s the new Olay Sensitive collection, formulated to calm stressed, dry skin and help fortify skin’s surface over time.

Over 72% of Canadian women report having sensitive skin. This collection doesn’t include soap, dyes or harsh surfactants. The ingredients used have been proven to fight redness and irritation. The best part? It provides immediate relief and helps protect against future flare ups.

When I get home after a long night, the last thing that I want to worry about is irritating my skin with makeup remover. I’ve been loving the Olay Sensitive Makeup Remover Wipes. They work really well, and remove my makeup in a few swipes. The wipes have micellar cleansing molecules to trap dirt and oil inside and remove it, so you don’t need to rinse with water.

After, I finish up with the Calming Liquid Cleanser. This product uses lamellar cleansing molecules which glide across skin to lift away dirt and impurities without disrupting skin’s natural structure. Both products are inspired by Hungarian Water Essence,and is infused with essences of aloe, cucumber and tea extracts.

Which product would you want to try?

 

 

 

 

 

Hunting for dragons at Casa Loma’s newest escape game: the Dragon’s Song

There’s nothing quite like hunting for dragons in a Gothic castle. I was invited to play the newest escape room from Secret City Adventures. Casa Loma Escapes executes my favourite escape room in the city. You can’t beat the location, and the story is always epic and fitting for a castle. The Dragon’s Song is their newest adventure. It brings together elements of fantasy, puzzle solving, teamwork and technology into one hands-on action packed game. (more…)

The Canadian Opera Company brings a season of dark fairy tales to Toronto

This fall, the Canadian Opera Company is putting a chill in the air with two very different, dark fairy tales.

Rusalka Oct 12 To Oct 26, 2019

The mermaid Rusalka leaves behind her watery home to be with her prince charming. Will he stay true to her sacrifice? Based on The Little Mermaid’s original tale, this romantic opera stars Met sensation Sondra Radvanovsky.Gorgeous sets, costumes, and choreography make this production a fairytale spectacle reminiscent of ballets Ondine and Giselle and films like The Shape of Water.

Turandot Sept 28 – Oct. 27

Princess Turandot knows that marriage can be a dangerous commitment. That’s why all her suitors must answer three riddles – and if they get even one wrong, they face the executioner’s blade. Despite the mortal risk, the exiled prince Calaf is determined to try and win her heart.

I haven’t been to the opera in several years, and I’m very excited to see these performances!

Take a peek at the new season from the Canadian Opera Company. If you’re under 30, you can get tickets to the opera for only $22.
