Let’s face it; life can be pretty unpredictable and when you’re constantly on the go it can get pretty difficult to take a little time to yourself. Since getting back from Costa Rica a week ago my life has been crazy – I’ve barely been home and have had so much on the go. My skin definitely took a bit of a beating between the flight home and a bit of hectic work and I knew I was going to have a hard time giving it the time that it needs. Luckily for me, AVEENO recently came out with a couple of products that really helped to nurse it back to health.

A facial isn’t always in the cards for all of us – between the associated costs and taking the time out of our schedules to actually go in and get it done, it’s not necessarily the most feasible thing. I can’t remember the last time I had one, but these new products from AVEENO have given me a chance to reap the benefits of one without the time commitment. The Positively Radiant 60 Second In-Shower Facial and Overnight Hydrating Facial are both super easy to add to your routine and beyond simple to use!

The AVEENO Positively Radiant 60 Second In-Shower Facial has become a real favourite of mine. It takes, yes, 60 seconds, and works quickly to refresh the skin. It uses the steam from the shower to open the pores, allowing for deep cleansing. I like to apply it while I wash my body or shave, letting it get to work, before rubbing it in to take advantage of the exfoliation and rinsing. My skin feels really clean afterwards and never dry.

Afterwards, I love to follow this up with the Positively Radiant Overnight Hydrating Facial. It feels really rich and creamy upon application; I actually apply a thick layer and let it sit on my skin for a couple of minutes to absorb as much on its own as it can before rubbing it in. It uses AVEENO’s Active Naturals Total Soy Complex to give my skin a deep level of hydration. The result? I wake up to skin that’s glowing and really refreshed, giving it most of the benefits of a facial while I sleep. Does it get any better than that?

With my life being all over the place & constantly on the go, these two products have become staples for me especially when I’m in a real rush. How else do you pamper yourself when you don’t have a lot of time?

Every now and then I love to change up my routine with some new products that make life just a little easier – or prettier. I’m always eager to see what P&G beauty has in store; with so many different brands on their roster, they’re constantly putting out new skincare, body & personal care options that I can’t wait to try out!

Today I’m sharing a few of my new favourites – have you tried any of these?

The new launch that I was most excited about this season is the Crest 3D White Whitestrips with Light. Crest has decided to take things a step further this season and have included a light that helps to increase and improve the strength of the white strips. The blue light technology they’re using is the best available over-the-counter right now. I’ve just started using these and can’t wait to see the results – white teeth for Christmas parties? Yes, please.

I’ve been loving the Gilette Venus Comfortglide Razor. I actually brought this down to Costa Rica with me because bathing suits were my every day clothing and hair legs/pits are not a good look for me. The awesome razor has been surrounded by moisture bars that containing body butter which means softer skin and a more comfortable shave.

I freaking LOVE the Pantene Pro-V 3-Minute Miracle Daily Moisture Renewal treatment. Whenever I’m having a bad hair day, I like to through this on. It seriously only takes 3 minutes to work its magic, and afterwards, you’re left with smooth, soft and silky hair. This came in especially handy while on my trip – between the sun, the wind and the saltwater, my hair constantly needed a treat to restore itself.

Spray deodorants have never really been on my radar, but I decided to give the Secret Fresh Invisible Spray in Ooh La Lavender a try. This spray is really quick drying, long-lasting and doesn’t leave behind any white residue. It keeps me feeling fresh all day, and I really love the fresh lavender scent.

Have you given any of these a try yet?

It’s almost that time of year again and Christmas is definitely in the air. I can’t believe we’re just over a week away from December; this year has been a really busy one for me, and it feels like time has just flown by. December 1st marks the first day for Advent calendars and I’ve seen some of the best ones yet. I’m sharing the best beauty Advent calendars for 2017 so you can find the one that’s perfect for you! There are so many different options at various price points and they’re all worth taking a look at.

The Body Shop consistently has some of my favourite Advent calendars. Every year, their team creates calendars and holiday gifts based on a theme, and this year was all about “kidulting,” embracing your inner child and having a little fun. They have four calendars available this year: 25 Days of Game-Changing Advent-ure ($139 – my personal favourite), 25 Days of Game-Changing Advent-ure Ultimate ($169), 25 Days of Game-Changing Advent-ure Standard ($99) and 24 Days of Beauty ($69). They each feature a slew of The Body Shop favourites and hide cute games and messages behind each box. Oh, and this year a portion of every holiday gift purchased will go towards International Alert to help Syrian refugee children.

I’m spending a little time in Costa Rica visiting my family right now and I absolutely love it here. The way of life, “Pura Vida”, is carefree, happy and full of adventure. It’s reminding me of the things in my life that really matter and how I love this lifestyle. I brought a few pieces from the new Boho by Spence Diamonds collection down with me because this line really speaks to how carefree and fun everything feels down here.

The Boho by Spence Diamonds collection helps to capture the boho way of life; the pieces in it are all representative of the girl who loves to travel, has a passion for art and exploring her creative side and embraces her femininity, while continuing to care for the environment and society. All of these flow through the earrings, bracelets and necklaces you can find in the collection.

The jewelry all focuses on incorporating symbols that speak to the boho gal: Elements (Earth, Fire and Water), Leaf, Lotus, Paisley, Feather and Arrow. Each symbol tells a different story that helps to represent a feeling. Personally, the lotus and feather symbols really speak to me – the lotus represents the future with endless possibilities, while the feather is all about soaring and taking yourself to new heights.

One of the most important parts of this collection that really speaks to me is that it features Artisan Created Diamonds which are environmentally sustainable and ethical – 1% of each purchase from the collection goes towards the NGO Not For Sale which works to end human trafficking.

I’ve already fallen in love with a few pieces from the Boho by Spence Diamonds collection and have a feeling I’ll be getting more in the future.
