Have You Tried “Pai”?

How jazzed are we? Pai Skincare  a skincare line loved by celebrity make-up artists and A-list talent alike, cult British brand has landed in Canada.

Anyone who knows me knows I care about using only the best for my skin, Pai is the only certified organic, premium range for sensitive and delicate skin.

Pai Skincare founder and president, Sarah Brown, was inspired to create a synthetic-free skincare line after years of battling skin allergies. In 2007 she introduced a range that has gained global recognition as a breakthrough for sensitive skin, and a legion of loyal followers along the way.


I tried out the Pai Skincare’s Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil, one of their most well known and loved items.

This Oil refines appearance of damaged skin and fines lines. It delivers Pro-Vitamin A to the skin without causing irritation. Rich in concentrated Trans-Retinoic Acid, an essential fuel for the skin’s natural repair function. It smells great and feels silky on the skin without the grease of tradition oils.

I also tested out Pai Skincare’s Chamomile & Rosehip Calming Day Cream.

This cream is formulated to soothe and maintain extremely sensitive skin. Its packed full of antioxidants and Omegas so it leaves skin hydrated and looking beautifully healthy with a heavy of heaviness. I love the feel and smell of this one!

For anyone with sensitive skin or anyone wishing to try out a truly organic line, give Pai a try!

H&M Newest Collaboration Frenzy

I know I am not the only one on the West Coast that set their alarms for 5am to logon to H&M for the newest Balmain collection!  Like many others, the site crashed was disappointing and now I will be driving to the nearest location to see what scraps I am left with.

IMG_5340669046797H&M has been so successful with their many collaborations like Jimmy Choo, Lanvin and Alexander Wang.  I personally got an amazing score of a bracelet from the Jimmy Choo collab and it is still one of my very favorite pieces. It is really nice to get a piece of Vogue in your closet for H&M prices right?

A lot of people are betting on who the next one will be in this article and I am hoping it will be Marc Jacobs!  I love their pop culture colors, NYC look and cool, wearable designs. But it might be a stretch since Marc by Marc Jacobs is already kind of like H&M pricing anyway.   This is a really great way to bring the high brow fashion brands into the masses so we can all enjoy fashion for fashion sake.

After seeing the preview on nitrolicious.com, I am obsessed!!

So off I go to Caesar’s Forum! I have my eye on this dress. Wish me luck.

November Beauty Essentials

November is the perfect month for change! With the change in time and a change and temperature you need a few new beauty products to keep you at the top of your game. From full cooling body cloths to lip gloss, here are the beauty essentials you need for the festive month ahead!


These hydrating collagen eye pads by wilmaschumann, are an intense hydration-boosting for the under eye with 100% pure collagen. These beauties are perfect for any skin type and visibly and effectively improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and reduce puffiness. I love using these in the morning!


With the temperatures cooling down outdoors, people may start cranking up the heat – especially in the office! This winter you won’t have to worry about embarrassing swear under all those layers with your new deskside essential – Ban Total Refresh Cooling Body Cloths. These unique towelettes wipe away sweat, cool the body down, and leave a unique soft powder finish, so you’re left feeling completely refreshed, with no sticky residue. Unlike others, these cloths will leave skin feeling smooth and silky, instead of wet and sticky ($3.29; Drugstores and Mass Retailers).


Sweater season may be underway, but itchy fabrics can leave your skin irritated. With new Curél Itch Defense Instant Soothing Moisturizing Spray, you can spray away pesky flare ups and itchy bumps right when you need it! This non-medicated, moisturizing spray instantly relieves dry, itchy skin with cooling hydration. Uniquely soothing, this formula delivers a mix of light yet potent hydrators to ease parched, itchy skin right where you need it. The Proprietary Cooling Complex feels soothing like a cold compress, lending you instant relief ($8.99; new for October 2015 Drug and mass merchants)!


Need a pick me up after a late night out – or at the office? Stash a few EyeRepair Spa by Look Beauty Eye Puffiness Minimizing Patches at your desk to mask away signs of fatigue. This effective skin treatment minimizes eye puffiness and increases elasticity of the eye area. Ginkgo & Cucumber Extract helps skin de-stress and decongest so puffiness is reduced. Skin looks and feels smoother and tighter ($9.99 for 5 treatments; Amazon.com).

L030true lipz completely change my perception on lip gloss. This breakthrough in lip color and deep hydration is so unique, and the colors are awesome! Envision satin-smooth gloss in the most en vogue shades gliding effortlessly over your lips while depositing ingredients known for nourishing, hydrating, conditioning and healing. Finally, a gloss that leaves your lips feeling luxuriously soft and supple…even the day after you’ve worn it. My November picks are Lustre L031 and Luste L036.


For just a hint of color and a whole lot of conditioning, Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm, ($7, burtsbees.com) The Botanical Waxes in these softly tinted balms will take your lips to hydrated and lovely in one pretty swipe.
