[Review] Olehenriksen Wonderfeel Double Cleanser

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.

[Review] Cleaning Up with the Shark APEX DuoClean Powered Lift-Away Vacuum

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.

Make it! Chocolate Chip Cookies from Redpath Bake Book

1-Fullscreen capture 2017-12-05 81032 PM

I love to bake. I can bake cakes, pies, cookies, breads, you name it. There’s one basic recipe that strangely eludes me: chocolate chip cookies. For some reason, whenever I make chocolate chip cookies, they come out weird. They’re spread way too much, they turn into one giant cookie, they are too soft or don’t offer any crunch…you name it.

Enter the Redpath Canadian Sugar Bakebook. I’ve tried many different chocolate chip cookie recipes, and this is the one that helped my conquer my strange baking deficiency to make delicious chocolate chip cookies. The Redpath Sugar Bakebook is filled with 200 recipes to make brownies, cakes, cookies and breads. Today I’m sharing the chocolate chip cookie recipe with you. (more…)
