#6 Beauty Heroes

FullSizeRender 6So, you know when you think about the things that you couldn’t live without – I mean beauty-wise, not things you couldn’t live without, like water or food or nutella – you know… the heroes of your beauty stash, the ones you reach for always and the ones that swoop in and save the day.  Well, when I think about a possible life without these  products I shudder for quite a while, longer than I’d like to.  Seriously.  My eyes cry and my palms sweat.  Do you know what I mean or am I being dramatic?  So it’s not just me then 😉

You stuffed your face.  Admit it.  You weren’t the only one, trust me, we all did!  We work-out all year round for days like Thanksgiving and Christmas Day, where we can stuff our faces the whole entire day without a morsel of regret.  Until the next day of course.  The day after is the day we always feel the effects of the day before.  Right?

Summer In Fall? Sorry, Not Sorry!

I know it sounds weird.  When the stores are pouring out autumnal smelling scents of cinnamon, pumpkin and spice, I walk into my local Marshalls – part of the MarMaxx family of stores (home of TJ Maxx, TK Maxx, HomeGoods, HomeSense, Winners along with Marshalls) – and come across this amazing body balm by H20+.  Poolside.  I picked it up because of the colour of the tube sticking out amongst the oranges, deep reds and browns for Fall, as well as the name.  I sort of imagined it would smell like summer just by the look of it.  When I smelt it I was transported to a pool with a pina colada in my hand laden with pink umbrellas, chunks of pineapple and glacier cherries on toothpicks, Reggae playing in the background.
