Flying Fox

With the Vancouver weather still lingering around, what better way to lift your spirit than a little mood-altering aphrodisiac. "Flying Fox" by Lush brings sultriness to the shower with scents of jasmine, yang ylang and palmarosa oils. This beautiful, honey infused shower gel left my skin caressed with moisture. What are you waiting for? Your shower awaits. Lather up at!

Starry, Starry Night

I think it's pretty clear to say that I love my baths! There is just something about climbing into a hot bath and melting the day away. Lush "Twilight" bath bomb filled the water with colours of pink and purple hues. The relaxing scent of lavender makes you want to drift off to dream. Nothing like wrapping your body and mind in a blanket of zen. Get your fizz on today at

Forest Fresh

Keeping our hands hydrated should be top on the list of priorities as we age. The Body Shop "Absinthe Purifying Hand Cream" delivers intense moisture and there is no greasy after feel. I am a little obsessed with the earthy scent; it’s like walking through a forest right after it has rained. The bergamot, petit grain and neroli combine for a perfect aromatic blend. Great for everyday use or an overnight treatment. Indulge today at

Skin Perfect

I get so excited about finding a foundation that gives my skin a flawless complexion without a heavy feel. IT Cosmetics "IT O2 Ultra Repair Liquid Repair Oxygen" foundation in medium is the ideal match for my olive skin tone. This foundation can be worn from sheer to built-up coverage. Oh, and did I mention that it is infused with peptides, hyaluronic acid and other anti-aging benefits? Say goodbye to imperfections and hello to dewy, beautiful skin. Shop

Ultimate Body Butter

Lise Watier does a body good with their Age Control Supreme "Ultimate Body Butter". I absolutely love slathering this body butter on, especially after a shower or a hot yoga session at YYoga. My skin soaks it all in. It has a light scent for that hint of floral sweetness. This cream is rich in Labrador Tea Extract, argan and shea butter, making it a heavyweight contender for fighting dry skin and premature aging. Visit
