For the month of April, we will be featuring, Feel the Lean, an eBook by Loni Jane. If you haven’t heard of this Australian foodie, I would suggest visiting her Instagram for a peak into her lifestyle. Not only is she an amazing photographer, she has changed her life by modifying her diet which is pretty cool – she is all about carbs and bananas.
Now that spring is here and the weather is (…slowly) warming up in Canada, I thought I’d do a post on choosing a more natural sunscreen. I’m a huge sun-lover. If someone told me I was some type of fabulous water lizard in another life, I would believe them. There are few things I love more than a beach and sunny weather. That being said, I also don’t want to end up looking like a human lizard as I age – so sun protection is important.
Erin and I had the pleasure of visiting the The Detox Market Toronto a few weeks ago. I’m obsessed with watching beauty/makeup videos on YouTube, and one of my favourite channels is celebrity make-up artist Jamie Greenberg. Recently, she went to the LA Detox Market, and all I could think was…

Each month we will be focusing on a book, either featuring one that we love, or something new that we can explore with you!

I’m trying to transition all my makeup and skin care to natural, cruelty-free products and it’s going well so far. I feel like there is way more variety at Whole Foods or your local supermarket, drug store etc. than before, but some natural brands can be preeeetty pricey. To the point where, when I buy something and it isn’t working, it bums me and my wallet out.
It’s tough to get samples at the grocery store, and I could just return the full size product if it’s not working out, but I hate being wasteful and always ask myself: “Where do those lightly used products go once people return them?”. I ended up asking someone at Sephora what they would do with a concealer I was returning and they said it would probably be thrown out…
