App Love: Matrix Color Lounge

As you know because I’ve been rambling about it for a few weeks now, I am stuck in a serious hair rut! I love my color but as the seasons change, I get that major itch to switch it up. And you know I’m not one to rush out for a lob or bob so my tastes typically turn to color style. So when my friends at Matrix asked me to test out their new Matrix Color Lounge app, I…

Shu Uemura Art of Hair

Guys, I recently went back on the blog and realized that I’m missing my love affair with my insanely long hair. Now much to my friends’ amusement (or lack thereof) I have decided that I really want to grow my hair longer for the summer and truly embrace those boho, festival vibes once again. But it’s not any foolproof plan that helps my hair grow. An improved diet with lots of healthy fats, genetics provide luck on my side and the big…

Kerastase Nutritive

I have always been one to live by the rule of investing in your accessories. From jewelry to handbags, I am all for cost per wear and searching for timeless items that can transcend multiple and everyday looks. On the flip side I also acknowledge that my best accessory is feeling good and that comes from choosing to smile every day (don’t forget to floss!) and taking care of my favorite feature, my HAIR. Unfortunately with a year of travel…

Resveratrol Lift Facial Treatment

Last week I had the good fortune of experiencing a little R & R at the Miraj Hammam Spa at the Shangri-La Toronto. I spent my afternoon there and had an amazing Resveratrol Lift Facial Treatment. Resveratrol is a revolutionary ingredient that is found in certain plants and red wine. It boosts cellular energy and works deep into the skin’s surface to reverse the affects of ageing. The team at Miraj Hammam Spa by Caudalie is using their expert knowledge to…

Kerastase Canada Fusio-Dose

  Last week I was delighted when Kerastase Canada invited me to Brennen Demelo Studio to try a new Fusio-Dose in-salon hair treatment. Now I know what you’re thinking, what the heck is that? These are concentrated boosters that jam your hair with a vitamin enriched formula, leaving your hair smooth, shiny and silky. For my hair, we went with the Strength formula and after a month of traveling this is exactly what my hair needed for new life. I swear the…

My Morning Hustle with Jergens Wet Skin

 We all know mornings can be tough. Even as a self-proclaimed morning person, I sometimes find it difficult to spring out of bed and take on the day. Luckily I’ve teamed up with Jergens® Moisturizer for Wet Skin to speed up my morning routine. This amazing moisturizer is applied to wet skin and stays on before you dry. It’s a quick little trick to save me time in the morning and it’s been keeping my skin smooth as the temperature get colder. I love that…

JoeScrub & My New Routine

It’s been such a relaxing week and this weather has been perfect! Before I head off again for the August long weekend and then EUROPE (!!!) at the end of the month, I’ve been laying low and getting things organized at home. The welcomed downtime has allowed me to get in to a bit of a routine: I’ve been working out in the morning, eating dinner at home and I’ve been taking the most wonderful baths before bed. One item that…

Express Yourself

Between work and catching up with friends and family, I’ve had no time to get poolside ready since my Nike race.  As I prep for my holiday tomorrow (Independence Day in DC woohoo!) I was so lucky to receive the Dr. Scholl’s Express Pedi Foot Smoother to test out for the blog. I spent the morning giving myself a Big Apple Red pedicure and the Express Pedi smoothed out all of the calluses that I had built up working toward race day.…
