Unwinding at Spa Nordik, North America’s Largest Spa

If you find yourself in Ottawa or Quebec, run, don’t walk, to Nordik Spa Nature. This is North America’s largest spa, and it’s oh so worth spending every minute here. The spa is only 15 minutes away from Ottawa, making it super convenient if you happen to be in town. This massive spa gets it’s roots from Scandinavian countries. They have 10 outdoor baths, 9 saunas, a floating salt water pool (my favourite!) a panoramic pool and multiple restaurants. Paradise? Yes.

The layout

When exploring the spa, it helps to know a little bit about how it’s laid out. The Kaskad area is great if you want some peace and quiet. This is a silent zone. If you still want to chat, but don’t want to be too loud, the Borëa allows you to speak quietly. It’s called the whisper section and it’s perfect for couples. Finally, if you’re here with a few friends and you really want to celebrate the Panorama area is the place to be. Talking is allowed and you can even drink in some of the pools. (more…)

Buxom Pillow Pout Creamy Plumping Lip Powder

I love to wear matte lipsticks, but my least favourite part is how drying they can be after a long day of wear. Luckily, Buxom has come out with a new lip powder called Pillow Pout Creamy Plumping Lip Powder.  Since it is a powder, the product is a lot lighter. I received the colours Cozy Up, Spoil Me and Kiss Me. This product has a unique sponge applicator, with the powder kept inside the cap.

[ Review ] Makeup Forever Matte Velvet Skin Full Coverage Foundation

Wearing makeup during the hotter months can always be challenging without the right formula. A freshly applied makeup look can slide right off in under an hour, if the right products aren’t used. If you have oily skin, that time can be cut in half!

Good thing one of my favourite brands, Makeup For Ever, has launched a new Matte Velvet Skin Full Coverage Foundation ($48). The foundation comes in a handy squeeze tube bottle perfect for getting the right amount each time. The foundation comes in 40 different shades, and I tried shade Y455.

Spring Beauty with Dior

Spring is just around the corner. Dior has a dazzling array of new products for spring! My favourite products are the Dior Lip Glow Hydrating Color Reviver Lip Balm ($41). The lip balms are from Dior’s Backstage collection. The formula is created with mango butter for hydrated lips.
