Working it Out with Fit Chicks Bootcamp

FitChick

If you had told me that I would be sweating it out in a room full of women at a boot camp, I would have told you you were mistaken. It’s not that I don’t like to work out, but I prefer my exercise to feel more like I’m doing an activity. Kickboxing and ballet barre fitness are more my cup of tea.

I’m getting married in July and need to get in tip top shape. I decided to try Fit Chicks because it sounded fun and like I would see results. You can choose to do bootcamp in 4 or 8 week sessions, and they have locations all over the city.

The first two classes that I did were hard work, but varied. We would do a short series of exercises in sets. This was really helpful for me, because I didn’t get bored or tired of repeating the same moment over and over. I had fun, and my body is definitely sore but in a good way! I still have many more classes to go, so I’ll keep you posted!

Dior Pump N’ Volume Mascara

I’ve been looking forward to reviewing this mascara for awhile! Dior’s new Pump and Volume is such a unique and great new beauty product that everyone should have in their makeup bag!

The mascara was first created because backstage, makeup artists would run the tube of mascara under hot water to make the formula more fluid. The concept is that you squeeze the bottom of the tube while pulling the wand out, getting any extra product off of the brush giving massive volume. The mascara claims to give lashes 100% more volume and to be honest, it’s unlike any mascara I’ve seen before! The formula consists of waxes and elastic powders or “Bouncy Powders” which helps to give your lashes all that volume. The top is packaged like most of Dior’s mascara’s, but the bottom is a soft rubber tube.

Take a look at my lashes before and after below!

2 coats of Dior Pump and Volume

It can get a little clumpy after 2 coats, but I personally like the clumpy look. It stayed on all day, and although it is not  waterproof formula, it was super hard to take off at the end of the night.Overall, this is great mascara for going out to special occasions, or if you want dramatic lashes every day like me!

Dior Pump N’ Volume Mascara Retails at Sephora for $37.00

Indochino Made to Measure Suits for Weddings

IMG_4952(1)

My wedding is coming up in less than 60 days! One of the most challenging aspects of my wedding for me has been menswear. Menswear is not my forte, so I was happy to leave suit selection up to the experts! I’ve been dying to use Indochino, and this wedding is my chance.

Indochino is a made to measure menswear brand. Customers are able to choose colours, fabric, suit lining, lapel style and more. Men can visit a showroom in Toronto or Vancouver in Canada. At the showroom, you can see sample suits, colours and fabrics. You can also get custom shirts made.

As you can image, Indochino is super popular for weddings. Made to measure suits are perfect for the groom and groomsmen. There are tons of fabrics and colour to choose from. I can’t wait to show you what our custom suit looks like when it’s ready! In the meantime, I’ve gathered some of my favourite wedding looks from Indochino below. (more…)

Show Your Heart for Maternal Health this Mother’s Day

h4m

I’ve reached that age where my friends are actually having babies. It still surprises me each time one of my friends says that they’re pregnant, and I’m reminded that we’re technically full blown adults. It’s even more amazing to watch them go from being with child to actually having the cutest (seriously!) babies ever.

We’re really lucky that in Canada, being pregnant is something to be celebrated. Of course, there’s anxiety, fear and stress, something that all expectant mothers face. But women in Canada know that we will be able to safely deliver our babies, and have birth in a hospital (or supervised home birth) if we choose. Not every woman is so lucky. (more…)

Treat Mom to a Facial at Caryl Baker Visage Beauty

Caryl Baker Visage Beauty has partnered with Skeyndor, the number one skincare brand in Spain, to bring several new facials to their menu. Facials include POWER C+ (a facial with pure Vitamin C to make your skin look radiant)  and the POWER HYALURONIC (a super boost of moisture).

I tried the express Power Hyaluronic facial, and it left my face feeling super plump and soft. This is the best treatment for the maximum hydration.

So how does it work? The magic behind this facial is hyaluronic acid and aquaporin (the protein that transports water to a cell) This pairing helps to hydrate the skin, and impvoes the regenerating process of the skin. The service itself was very relaxing. My face was gently massaged with hyaluronic acid and I cooling hydrating gel mask was applied. After, my skin had more moisture even days later.

If you’re looking for a gift for Mom this Mother’s Day, why not go and get facials together at Caryl Baker Visage? Take a look at all of the locations here.
