Lancome Visionnaire Advanced Muli- Correcting Cream- This product is infused with the LR2412 molecule to correct the appearance of the skin, eliminating wrinkles and boosting radiance and plumpness. I have used it several times and it is very moisturizing and I do feel that my skin does appear smoother and more even after use. It is reccommended that the cream be used morning and evening after a serum.
Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo- I love a dry shampoo as I cannot wash my hair everyday. The small size of this sample makes it perfect for my bag or desk drawer. We all feel better when our hair looks good- it can make the difference between a good and bad day!
Illumalift- This brighter and skin corrector has active ingredients to make skin look 2 years younger after a month of use.
Teeez Nail Lacquer in Pretty in Pyrite- Their polishes do not include Dibutyl Phthalate, Toulene or Formaldehyde. This colour is a lovely shiny neutral colour perfect for the fingers or toes!
So here’s the thing. I am pregnant..with TWINS! I had a really rough first trimester – Kate Middleton and I have something in common! You have may have noticed a serious drop in posts in since August but I am feeling SO much better now and I am getting excited to shop for my newly expanding figure! Let’s face it- new clothes is a nice distraction from thinking about the size of your butt and thighs as the pregnancy progresses! I am going to be pretty huge by the time I have these kiddos!!
A great pair of Maternity jeans is a must, especially as I work at a job where jeans are basically my uniform. Other musts are good long tanks and tops as well as cozy, draped cardigans. We will be attending a wedding in November and I am seriously considering this amazing Isabelle Oliver Dress….. what do you think?
Here are some of the items that I am coveting!
October’s here, the leaves are falling and the weather is cold! Don’t mistake- I am sad that the summer is over but fall means…BOOTS!

Here are some of my faves.. how can I choose just one??

August was an insane month for us! We went on a two-week holiday, I started a new job and we continue to be in the throes of our renovation. This didn’t leave me a lot (by my usual standards) of time to read. Here are the fun books I managed to fit in!
The Heiresses by Sara Shepard - This book by the writer of Pretty Little Liars was the perfect fluffy holiday read- part romance, part suspense and all fun!
The List by Karin Tanabe -I borrowed this from a the friend that we stayed with in Long Island; it was written by a friend’s sister! I adored this book! A fast paced romp through the political journalism scene in Washington DC had me hooked from the first page!
Visions by Kelley Armstrong The second book in her new Cainville series, this supernatural suspense novel built upon the foundations of the first book, and left me wishing that the next book was already out! She teases you like that! If you liked her Women of the Otherworld series, this is a must read.
Burial Rites by Hannah Kent - This book was a departure from my previous fluffy reads. Based on the true story of the last female criminal beheaded in Iceland, this story is so atmospheric and beautifully written. Agnes’s story will stay with you long after the last page.

I live a busy life- a preschooler, a blog, a full-time job, home reno… it has been insane recently. I am always on the go but I have no time to officially “exercise”. I really like to track my fitness level on an average day and to see if I am getting any exercise and to see where I can maybe add a bit more movement into the routine… even taking those stairs a few extra times a day can make a big difference.
I was approached recently to try a new fitness tracker called the Runtastic Orbit. The Orbit is a 24/7 tracker capable of tracking your fitness, steps, exercise and sleep cycle with one tiny little device. The device syncs to your smart phone (iPhone and Android for the moment) and is waterproof up to 300 feet (yes, you can track swimming!) . Like some of the other trackers out there, it can be worn in a wristband (it comes with two- basic black and blue) or on a clip for a more invisible look (wear it with your cocktail dress!) There are so many activities that can be tracked with the orbit, it is mind-boggling. I love that you can use it to track cycling, skiing, push ups and more!
The apps are free, very user-friendly and nice to look at. I am a big fan of this little device and I have been wearing it 24/7 since I got it! I am still crazy busy- now I can see the calories my life burns!
I am so excited to be able to give away on Runtastic Orbit to one of my lovely readers!
