This year I turned 35, and for the first time in my life, I see my skin starting to age, particularly the fine lines around my eyes and the deep lines in my forehead. It seems to get worse in the afternoon, when I am extra dehydrated! The thing is, I have mixed feelings about it. Part of me wants to call it quits and get Botox, and the other part of me wants to attempt to reverse and slow down the signs of aging with healthier habits and a stronger skincare routine. When Canadian cosmetics brand, Mériance Collagen reached out to me to test their anti-aging skin care line, I knew this beauty assignment was the perfect opportunity to distract my Botox craving.
Before I go on, I’d like to say that I have nothing against Botox and fillers, and I imagine I will get it at some point in my life. I’m just not ready to start right now, that’s all.
Alas, it’s time to switch over to fall makeup looks. In this video I show you how to do a smokey eye look using the Nyx Warm Neutrals Ultimate Eyeshadow palette. In this tutorial, I also share a few fundamental elements to achieving the perfect Smokey Eye look for the fall!
Whether you’re looking for something to do with the family on the Civic holiday long weekend or Labour Day long weekend, a road trip is always a good idea. A quick road trip to Montebello is an even better idea… and in a BMW X3 is probably THE BEST idea! That’s what we did in August this year, and I wanted to share a few awesome parts of our mini family weekend getaway. Hopefully, it will inspire you to do the same this weekend!
