The Science Behind Clean Beauty:
Listening in on this chat about endocrine disruptors - what they are, how you can avoid them and how science informs how Beautycounter formulates safer and #betterbeauty
One of the many reasons why I have chosen to partner with this company. Always educating us on our health and how we can do better.
TRUTH: I have tried so many clean deodorants and none were as high performing, reliable, safe, clean, sustainable (and chic) as these ones.
Beautycounter has been working on this for 5 years to make sure it was perfect- high performing, reliable, sustainable, refillable and 100% CLEAN!
Check out this great read from Allure for more on why this clean Deo is a game changer.
As many of you know I’ve been working hard to make the transition to cleaner and low tox products for myself and my clients.
If you’re looking for more information on clean beauty products or recommendations feel free to reach out.

And I got to try it before it finally launched today.
I don’t know about you but I’m still processing what just happened in 2020.
I know I’m not alone when I say that the past year knocked me down more times then I’d like to admit. Being unable to have any control over situation is TOUGH. Watching many small businesses treading to stay afloat (including my own) was (and still is) painful BUT it but it also showed just how resilient and strong we all are. Connecting with so many of you and watching your passion projects come to life which may never would have is pretty amazing and so inspiring ✨
We’ve had lot of time to reflect and connect with what really matters and although 2020 was the hardest year yet. It has put a lot into perspective and I’ve grown & learned so much. For that I’m grateful.
So...I’m finally ready to welcome 2021 with open arms. I’ve decided this year I’m not making any resolutions (except maybe getting more sleep). I’m just going to stay focused and let the universe work it’s magic.
Wishing you all a safe and positive 2021 🌟🥂💛

Last November, I had the absolute pleasure of working with the Canadian Hockey legend herself @hchickwick for her induction into the @thehockeyhalloffame 🏒🙌🏻
For the looks, I went pretty natural the first day really focusing on perfecting her skin and subtlety enhancing her eyes. The second day I went in with a little more drama to pair with her chic suit. I love how both came together!
▶️ Scroll through to see the two looks we decided on from the hotel room to under the lights.
Fun fact 🗯
Hayley is not only a 6 time Olympian and one of the greatest female hockey players of all time. She is in her last year of med school, studying to be an emergency room physician. Being such a huge role model, she saw an opportunity to help and has used her platform & started a movement earlier this year to raise funds @conquercovid19ca for more PPE to keep frontline workers feeling safe and supported throughout the pandemic. 👏🏻
You know what’s amazing?! When community comes together to support a great cause 🌸
With your support, my @beautycounter colleagues and I exceeded our goal in just 4 days and were able to put together 220 sponsored 'Pouches with purpose' in partnership with @PinkPearlCanada !
The pouches will be an unexpected gift to women undergoing cancer treatment in hospital amidst COVID this holiday season. A little something special just for them, to brighten their spirits and show them support and love 💛.
A huge thank you to all that donated 🌸

▶️ Truth...I’m really missing pre 😷 days. I miss being able to do what I love without constant fear and the risk involved of being around one another.
This photo was taken in February. Pre-mask days and was our last big event before COVID hit hard.
We had no idea what we were in for. Business was thriving and we had a busy year of events ahead. As many of us thought, 2020 was supposed to be the best year yet. You can pivot and try new directions, but when you build a business off a team it is HARD. Our beauty bars @_thebeautyteam_ were so much fun. I miss the team, our events and feeding off all that energy in the room. It was truly the best. It seems like this pandemic is never ending but I’m hopeful we can get back to it one of these days 🤞🏻
To all the artists, performers, restaurants & small businesses trying to stay afloat. I’m with you. This year has been TOUGH. I hope we all make it out stronger then ever. There’s always a silver lining right?
✨Do you believe in the law of attraction & power of postive thinking?
I think mindset shifts are such an important thing to practice to keep you on the right path as an entrepreneur.
This year however, has thrown so much at us and I’m sure I’m not alone when I say a bit of that positivity slipped through the cracks.
SO, After my birthday this month I made a pact to myself to get back to it and begin each day practicing gratitude and goal setting to shift my mindset back to a positive one!
The @fiveminutejournal has been a great little routine I’ve gotten into. Just 5 minutes, morning and night 🌞 🌙
Writing down your goals, and intentions for the day sets you up for success and growth. Practicing gratitude is a reminder of all the little things that we often overlook but mean the most.
What’s one thing you’re grateful for today?

One word of advice I give our brides @_thebeautyteam_ is to schedule your getting ready location in a space that you find calm, relaxing and spacious enough so that you can fully enjoy those little moments with your bridal party and family.
Having your Makeup & Hair team come to your location on the day of is HUGE. The getting ready process always takes a few hours so why not be somewhere you feel most comfortable. It's always such a fun experience with memories to last a lifetime.

Margot was my first bridal client when we stepped into Phase 3. She doesn’t wear a lot of makeup on the daily and wanted to look like herself but a little fancier for when she said her vows. The focus was radiant skin paired with an effortless up do.
😍Isn’t she stunning?!

Summer makeup is all about keeping it simple. Peach tones 🍑 are one of my favourites to use when creating a monochromatic look.

Anyone else kinda feel like their heads been in the clouds a lot this summer?
All of a sudden it’s August, we’re in phase 3, work has started up again (for those of us makeup industry), school’s heading back full time in September, and I’m trying to wrap my head around everything that just happened and is going over the past 5 months 🤯
Anyone else feeling a little overwhelmed with this new norm?
If there’s anything I have learned to practice this year, it’s that our health and well-being needs to take priority first. I’ve been making sure I take an hour to myself each day to walk or run, clear my head and focus on the positive. It’s been helping so much!
So tell me, what daily activities do you practice to feel your best self?
#challengeaccepted Greatful to be surrounded by women that lift each other up.
thx @beeluv83 ✨💛
I head back to work this Wednesday 🙌🏻 💄
Looking back it’s crazy to think this shoot happened right before 2020 turned upside down.
Truth be told, I’m a little anxious to start up again, overly prepared with all things PPE & disinfectants and kit condensing. I know once I’m back in the zone it will pick up right where I left off...just with a few more safety measures in place.
Makeup Artists - have you started working yet? How are you feeling about our new norm?
#torontomakeupartist #covid19 #torontoheadshots #gtamakeup #makeupartistlife #staysafe
Working for yourself is amazing but it can seem like a never-ending cycle & while BTS life may look exciting on the gram, a lot of the (less exciting) work is the hours spent working from home, planning for what’s next, networking, marketing, creating content, scheduling that content, admin - contracts, invoices, booking artists, tracking expenses...the list goes on (and on). 👩🏻💻
This year has taught me a lot about time management and things I can’t control. Letting the little things go. It’s better to get it done then overthinking and not moving forward (I swear I never do that lol).
I’m still a work in progress but I do find making lists of each days tasks and checking them off as I go keeps me accountable. ✔️
So tell me fellow mom bosses and entrepreneurs - How do you keep your days in check? Send me all your tips!

I love Sundays. A day to relax and refresh for the week ahead. We’re spending the day outside and unplugged (as much as possible).
What are you doing to relax today?
You know when you want to wear foundation but hate the feel of it on your face yet also need some coverage to feel your best - the struggle is real. Well guess what?! THIS.IS. IT! Meet my match made in foundation heaven.
SKINTWIN launched a few months ago and has quickly become my go to when I need a little more coverage then dew skin (hello zoom calls!).
Here’s why I’m loving it so much:
SKINTWIN comes with a range of 18 different shades.
Provides a light-to-medium buildable coverage (I even apply with my fingers just like skincare and it’s flawless!)
It blends seamlessly into the skin and literally feels like you’re not wearing makeup at all!
Most importantly, this isn’t just a foundation it’s skincare too. It contains a generous dose of hyaluronic acid which visibly plumps and smooths skin immediately and helps to minimize appearance of fine lines over time.
And to top it off it’s clean beauty - EWG verified too.
Seriously though, a foundation that is going to better your skin. Who can say no to that?!
So tell me what do you look for in a foundation. Ask me all the questions and we can see if this product is a good match for you too!
Anyone else obsessed with bronze tones and sun kissed skin? 😍 ☀️

Gua sha has become one of my favourite beauty rituals to relax, renew and relieve tension.
If you haven’t heard about this technique before, Gua sha is a technique practiced in Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years. It’s been found to have a firming and lifting effect on the face, brighten the complexion, minimize pore size, relieve tension and be a quick remedy for puffiness and fine lines.
How to use:
Cleanse face as usual and prep skin with a facial oil or serum (for my my picks scroll through) Keep the stone flat moving with gentle stokes in an upwards motion against the face to massage the skin, stimulate blood flow and flush the lymphatic system.
For some amazing demos and more info highly encourage you to check out @britta_beauty she is a true Gua sha master.
Do you Gua sha?
Happy Summer Holidays ☀️
We finished off the last day of school with a socially distant cottage visit celebrating my little man finishing his first year of kindergarten - and of course that there’s no more homeschooling ... I hope 😳
Don’t you just love how a little sunshine and water brings out the best smiles.

Have you tried dry-brushing? It’s an easy method to detoxify and boost the immune system by opening pores, improving blood circulation and helping to flush waste + toxins by stimulating lymphatic drainage.
Try dry brushing 1-2 times a week. Afterwards skin will feel invigorated, soft, has a beautiful glow and cellulite can be appear less visible.
A few tips to get you started:
✔️purchase a dry brush with natural ultra fine bristles.
✔️Always brush skin firmly and in long strokes working toward your heart - this is the most effective in stimulating lymphatic drainage.
✔️ the best time is before you shower for 10 minutes - morning or night, whatever your preference.
✔️ Avoid any broken skin.
