It's certainly felt like winter crept up on us the past couple weeks. And with the changing season, comes a change in my skincare regimen. As I'm sure many of you can relate to, during the cold and dry months the wind chill leaves my skin feeling parched and sensitive. In search of the perfect skin fix, I decided to reach out to Julie Clark, a certified holistic esthetician and aromatherapist. "As the weather changes, so does your skin and so should your routine," she explained. Having struggled with sensitive skin herself, Julie founded Province Apothecary, a collection of handcrafted organic skincare and perfumes.
This year marked the Art Gallery of Hamilton's centennial year and it has celebrated with some incredible exhibitions. Talk about a milestone for the city and our arts scene! On Sunday, the Gallery hosted their opening event for the fall exhibitions, including The World Is an Apple: The Still Lifes of Paul Cézanne and Painting Hamilton. Wondering what to wear to an event like this? Having attended a number of exhibition openings, I thought I'd share a few style tips to help you put together the perfect outfit!
Autumn. The nights are cooler, longer. Curling up with a cozy blanket and a cup of hot cider with a candle burning nearby is one of the best feelings. I love to fall asleep to the sound of rustling leaves and wake to crisp air creeping in through the window. In those early hours, I slip on a wool sweater and breathe in the woody, earthy scents as I take our dogs out for their morning walk. So quick we are to fall for the changing seasons. As the seasons change, it’s time to think about fragrances that provide a sense of warmth and comfort. Today I’m sharing my personal favourites with you, courtesy of Glade®.
Finding time to ‘stop and smell the roses’ may sound simple, but is often easier said than done. When we’re on the go, we rarely stop and enjoy life’s beautiful, everyday moments. But there is beauty to be found all around you if you are willing to slow down for a moment to look. Take time each day to enjoy the city you live in, the people you spend time with and the simple things that make you happy. While I, too, am always on the go, I try to cherish the little moments and little things. I’ve partnered with Prada to share the daily delights that bring beauty to my everyday and a smile to my face.
