Review: Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Sunscreen

I have been using the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Sunscreen for about a week now and I have to say I am totally in love with it! I have been using it as my moisturizer daily and my skin feels softer and hydrated. I love that it goes on smoothly but does not leave any white residue or oil on your skin like traditional sunscreen. The sunscreen does not irritate my sensitive skin, which is a bonus. Overall, I feel my skin looks healthier and younger after using this. This is going to be my go to summer moisturizer!

Here are some of the other benefits (taken from

Maker Edition

Warby Parker's new Maker Edition of glasses is just amazing!  For anyone that knows me, knows I am a sucker for all things the shade of gold!  These glasses don't disappoint!  These frames are timeless and can be worn with any outfit.  They will be perfect for summer to wear casually with shorts or to dress up your Canada Day attire; and will keep you looking stylish through all those summer weddings.  The Maker Edition name comes from the attention to detail that was put into making these glasses.  Each pair is precision welded by hand and custom tooling was used to finish off the designs.  However, if this collection is not your style be sure to check out the rest of their eyeglasses.  And the best part?  For each pair sold, they donate a pair to someone in need.  The above glasses start at $195 a pair.

Deep Freeze

Sweatshirt - In Pursuit || White Shirt - Vero Moda || Hat - handknit by my Mom || Jeans - Paige Denim it going to warm up anytime soon?  Yesterday we were hit with a snow bomb and today the temperatures have dropped back down to -20 degrees celcius and then add the wind chill on top of that.  Layers have been essential to staying warm these last two weeks and this Saint John top that I received for Christmas is perfect!  So cozy and love that it celebrates my awesome little city.  As well, I don't think I am going to take this hat off all winter.  My mom made it for me for Christmas and I absolutely love it!  (Thanks Mom!).  She is so talented!  If you need me over the next few days I will be cuddled up by the fire trying to stay warm.  What have you been doing to stay warm?

Popped and Paired

For many the labour day weekend signifies the end of summer.  But to me it is one last opportunity to attend an amazing outdoor bbq or picnic with those that you love.  SkinnyPop has made it really easy to help jazz up your next get together.  Bring any of these drink and popcorn pairings along and you are sure to be the hit of the party!  My favorite pairing below is the white peach sangria and naturally sweet popcorn.  What a great thing to bring for dessert after your meal!  I also love anything sweet! 

SkinnyPop makes seven flavors of popcorn.  With so many to choose from the combinations of drinks and popcorn are endless!  Plus their popcorn is GMO free and gluten and preservative free.  What better way to induldge in a delicious healthy snack.
