Ahhh. Spring is finally here. We’ve officially hit the first day of spring, and while it may not have felt like it, I’m still happy knowing that we’re hopefully going to be moving towards warmer weather soon. I like winter for about 5 days each year, so you can imagine why I’m so happy that we’ve hit it. This season brings so many good feelings and today I wanted to share with you 6 things I’m excited about for spring 2018. Let’s get to it!

  1. Pretty Spring Manis – One of my favourite things about spring is the reintroduction of colour, especially those that are pastel in nature. It’s finally time to put the black away and add a bit more lightness into our lives, which is why I tend to fall hard for spring nail polish collections. I’m really loving the Chic Shook collection from CND and the Blush Collection from Sally Hansen, both of which have plenty of soft tones and pretty, Easter-ready shades. My picks: CND Vinylux Long Wear Polish in Jellied and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Blush Against the World

2. Getting my Glow Back – At this point in time, my skin is super pale and feeling pretty dull and dried out. The past few weeks have been pretty harsh, with cold temps and nasty wind, and my skin is definitely reflecting this. Spring is all about feeling fresh and new, and I feel like one of the best ways to show that on your face is with a healthy glow. Add some bronzer or a beautiful highlight to your face and give it a quick revival. My picks: L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Glow Nude Highlighter Palette, L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Glotion (for a quick, all-over glow) and Elizabeth Arden Dare the Bare Bronzing Gel Pearls (for a natural-looking bronze boost)

3. Fresh Spring Scents – I feel like spring is really about different things reawakening, including our senses. I start to reach for fragrances that can best be described as delicate and refreshing, which I think really reflects what’s going on in nature. My pick: Clean Fresh Linens Eau de Parfum

4. Lighter Clothing – As much as I love being cosy and wrapped in blanket-like sweaters, I much rather prefer the light fabrics and flowy dresses of spring and summer. Since I’m going away in a few weeks, I’ve been looking out for pieces that will keep feeling comfortable, breathable and cool when the weather starts to warm up – and that includes what I’m wearing under my clothes. My pick: La Vie en Rose Lightly Lined Spacer Foam Bra (the perfect T-shirt bra!)

5. Easy, Breezy Skincare – Once again, spring is all about taking off the layers and bringing things back to life – including your skin. I love how skincare gets a bit more lightweight and is more about brightening and maintaining a healthy appearance. My pick: Olay Luminous Whip Face Moisturizer (BONUS: it has SPF 25 included, so you can make sure your skin is protected without even thinking about it)

6. Adding a Little Sparkle – Ok, yes, this is one that can happen anytime, but what better time to sparkle than when the sun is shining? Now that you’re casting off the sweaters and coats, it’s time to reemerge as the beautiful, sparkling goddesses that we are. And hey, who can ever say no to a little bling? My pick: Kiss Jewel Fantasy Nails (I’ve worn them and they’re freaking gorgeous)

What are you looking forward to for spring?

Oh winter – between the cold, frosty weather (which we have yet to be hit with in Toronto) and the craziness of the holidays, it’s definitely time to amp up your beauty routine! Of course, this means a combination of finding the perfect holiday beauty matches, taking care of your skin and hair, and treating yourself a little!

I wanted to share some of my favourite P&G Beauty United items to get me through the season – they all fit perfectly into my routine and let me feel my best throughout the holidays:

  • Olay Luscious Embrace Cleansing Bodywash in Luscious Orchid – This cleansing body wash, containing jojoba butter and crushed orchid extract, helps to hydrates while it cleanses, adding some much-needed moisture to my thirsty, thirsty skin. Oh, and it smells divine.
  • COVERGIRL Outlast Longwear Lipstick in Red Rogue – I’m ALL about the red lip for the holidays – the bolder the better! And of course, if it doesn’t last long, it’s just not going to work… especially during holiday parties! This gorgeous red is packed with colour, moisturizing (no one wants a flaky red) and has a great, long-lasting wear.
  • Pantene Airspray – When I’m constantly heat styling my hair through the holidays, the last thing I need is to dry my hair out even further, which is why I’m so happy Pantene’s new hairspray is alcohol free! IT avoids the crunchy, stiff feel that often comes with hairspray, and leaves my hair with flexible, touchable hold.
  • Olay Regerist Luminous Facial Oil – Not so breaking news: my skin likes to dry right out during the winter. A combination of nine enriched natural oils helps to keep my skin hydrated and glowing, without looking greasy.
  • COVERGIRL Eye Shadows Quad in Go For The Golds – I love a good dose of shimmer & sparkle during the holidays (well, really, all year around… it’s just easier to pack it on this time of year) and this beautiful quad helps me to highlight & add a healthy dose to my lids!
  • Crest White® Whitestrips Luxe Supreme FlexFit – It’s no secret that the holidays mean plenty of photos, which means plenty of smiling… Which means teeth have gotta be ready to go! These white strips promise professional results and use FlexFit technology for better fit on your teeth.

Now, of course, I would love to help one of you get ready for the holidays, so my friends at P&G are going to hook one luck winner up with a set of 10 products ($170 value) guaranteed to help you survive the season!

Ugh.  There’s nothing worse than waking up in the morning only to realize that you turned off your alarm, overslept, and now have precious little time to get yourself ready and out the door.  I know we’ve all been there and it’s never fun.  I’m not one to run out the door looking like I just rolled out of bed, so I put together my 5 minute face using some great P&G Beauty products (Olay, Herbal Essences & CoverGirl!).  When I say 5 minutes, I mean it – I timed myself while I threw this quick look on and made it through before the buzzer went!

Let’s start with the face.  I like to wake myself up by giving my skin a quick wash in the morning, and the Olay Fresh Effects {Out of this Swirled} Deep Pore Clean & Exfoliating Scrub is the perfect wake up call.  It had gentle exfoliating beads to help get rid of any dry skin and leaves my skin feeling smooth and clean.  I like to follow this up with Olay Fresh Effects {Dew Over!} Hydrating Gel Moisturizer to hydrate and get my skin prepped, then give my eyes a boost with Olay Fresh Effects {Bright on Schedule} Eye Awakening Cream – the “metal ball” applicator is cool and soothing and really helps to de-puff tired eyes.  I actually noticed a difference right away (hint: to make this even better, keep it in the fridge for a real cooling feeling).

As for quick makeup on the go, I like to start off with Olay Fresh Effects {BB Cream!} Skin Perfecting Tinted Moisturizing Cream.  It’s lightweight, helps to even out skintone for a brighter look and masks minor imperfections.  I like to add a little colour, so I added some CoverGirl Flamed Out Shadow Pencil in Ginger Flame to my lids and Crystal Flame to the inner corners of my eyes to brighten them up.  I also added a little liner using CoverGirl Ink It! in Black Ink before throwing on a couple of coats some CoverGirl Clump Crush Mascara (one of my absolute favourite mascaras).  Finally, I added a little moisture and shine to my lips with CoverGirl Lipsticks Smoochies Lip Balm in #BeSweet.

For speedy hair, I find it’s easiest to throw it up in a quick bun.  I try to shower the night before when I know I’m going to be up early and spritz on some Herbal Essences Honey I’m Strong Silkening Spray to keep my locks feeling soft when I wake up.  Give it a quick twist and pin it up, spray it with some Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly Tousling Hairspray to keep it in place, and you’re good to go!

Do you ever find yourself in a hurry and needing a quick solution?  Enter to win a pack full of all the P&G goodies you need to get yourself out the door:

  • Olay Fresh Effects {Out of this Swirled} Deep Pore Clean & Exfoliating Scrub
  • Olay Fresh Effects {Bright on Schedule} Eye Awakening Cream
  • Olay Fresh Effects {Dew Over!} Hydrating Gel Moisturizer
  • Olay Fresh Effects {BB Cream!} Skin Perfecting Tinted Moisturizing Cream
