Brain Massage | Don’t Sugar Coat Our Food Labels

Calling a woman “Sugar” aside from all the sexist connotations, usually insinuates that a gal is sweet and satisfying. Now the American FDA is requiring all food manufacturers to identify and call out all “added sugars” implying what many of us already know, that sugar may be sweet to our taste buds but rotten for our health.

Tropical Fever

After seeing the gorgeous tropical prints in the Rochas Resort 2017 collection I was reminded of this made in Hawaii frock in my closet. It was an impulse buy but it feels so summery and makes me dream of Hawaii nights. Which by the way I’ve never experienced but I’ve heard they’re magical.

I love the modern cuts and luxurious fabric used by Rochas. However, I’m learning that cuts like these can be very tricky to pull off. Especially if you have a pear-shaped body and then classic cuts are always safer and infinitely more flattering. As for the luxurious fabric, I’m definitely in a machine wash and dry stage of life ; )

Loving It | Pixi Rose Oil Blend

When I first received the Pixi Rose Oil Blend I was unsure of the rose scent. I’ve always found rose to be very overwhelming. However, after cleansing my skin in the evening and applying a few drops of the Rose Oil Blend to my face I was in awe of how smooth my skin was the next morning. After continued use I’m not having breakouts any more like heavier night creams were causing. I decided I could get over the scent since it is fairly subtle, say in comparison to Chanel No. 5. Side Note: If you want to see more of the Chanel No. 5 making process this is a fun post!

I’ve never given a lot of thought to the clothes my boys wear other than that they be comfortable and (mostly) fit. I’ve always welcomed hand-me-downs and thrift finds into their wardrobe.

A good drink is a good drink but call a liquid a functional beverage and I’m hooked. Not functional in a Red Bull induced frenzy of energy but a beverage that boosts the immune system, fights cancer, and is rich in antioxidants. Tea is one of those nostalgic drinks that warms the insides and provides us with health benefits.

We’ve had such beautiful weather in Vancouver lately that when I packed for Whistler I had Summer in mind. I forgot about higher altitudes and snow…I was looking forward to wearing this pretty, Clover Canyon silk tank out for a walk through the village with Ben. It didn’t make it out of the hotel room and neither did the shorts.

This is one of those fashion moments when I’m like, really? Would I wear this out and about? Ben and I have a getaway planned and I would like to step things up a notch for a dinner out.

So sequins. Very 70s sequins. I tried to distress the look with ripped jeans and I felt like I was trying too hard. I settled on keeping the rest of the look sleek and minimal.
