With all of the winter-proof beauty looks we’ll be wearing this season, it can sometimes be a struggle to find something that takes it all off at the end of the day!
One of my favorite products is the Wonderful Double Cleanser by Olenhenriksen ($39). This creamy cleanser is perfect for taking off the setting sprays, long wear foundation, and even stubborn eye makeup. Your skin will benefit from the olive and borage seed oils, as well as other ingredients like black current extract. The combination of all these special oils makes the cleanser smell amazing.
The best part? The cleanser includes a cloth you can use to remove any remaining makeup. Sounds good? Find out more about the Wonderful Double Cleanser by Olenhenriksen.

Quo always has a beautiful Christmas collection filled with fun stocking stuffers and beautiful cosmetics. This year is no different. Here are a few of the items from the collection! (more…)
I’m a homeowner now, and with great power comes great responsibility. And bills. Like, lots of bills. But, other than the bills, there are so many things that I took for granted. Such as, having appliances. And vacuums. My condo has hardwood floors, and I decided to get a carpet for the living room. I love the carpet, but it seems to attact all sorts of dust, dirt, crumbs, you name it. The need for a vacuum became evident very quickly. I turned to one of the experts for help with this essential household item.
SharkNinja has been creating innovative products since their inception in Montreal in 1995. Since then, they’ve been creating vacuums, steam mops and other products.
I have the Shark® APEX™ DuoClean® Powered Lift-Away® Vacuum, and it’s a far cry from the vacuum that I had around the house when growing up. For one, it’s incredibly versatile.
