Alpha Hydrox products have been around for decades, I remember getting turned onto them back in college, when my budget was tight and I wanted excellent results for minimum pay. This product left me amazed by the results, which is the reason I continue to be loyal long after my college days. I use the foaming wash and the AHA Souffle pictured here, which has 12% AHA. It smooths my skin and has cleared the discolouration over the years. The price is astounding for all this product offers, at $15 per jar, I have plenty left in my budget to spend on my ever growing list of must-haves. I order directly from the site because it seems they always have a promotion. I just ordered a replenishment and received my facial cleanser complimentary! It’s almost too good to be true, but true it is. I urge you to check out the site and explore options for your individual skin needs, if you need assistance, phone the customer service number, they are always pleasant and ready to help answer your questions. If you decide any of the products use the following code at checkout: NC-US-319
Next up, Bumble and Bumble Hair Powder. Bumble and bumble hair products are among my favourite, and the hair powder is a gem. It dry cleanses and adds great tint and volume. For those who have greys sprout up long before the next salon visit for touch ups, this powder is a great way to camouflage, and if you are in between shampoos and the oil is building up, problem solved with this dry cleanser. This is a great product for set work or if you plan to take photos because it gives the appearance of a thick, healthy mane when sprinkled on side and middle parts in the hair.
Target Up & Up Baby Wipes are a staple in my car, home, purse and set kit. They are handy for spills, makeup removal, cooling the skin on hot summer days and a multitude of other uses you haven’t even thought about until the moment arises. They are under $2 and so very handy.
Denim, denim, denim… yes, it has now become the wardrobe staple in the closets of women all across the globe. Being from a city where dressing up to go to the grocery store was the norm, it took me a while to jump on the denim bandwagon, and now I’m pretty much committed. I have every style and cut you could possibly imagine from Sevens to AG and Current Elliot, however, my favourite brand is Joe’s. First off they fit like a glove and secondly they are perfect for those of us with long legs. I’m 5’8″ and prefer my jeans drag a bit so this coupled with my height can make it challenging to find the perfect denim, not anymore, Joe’s rarely miss the mark for me, and for those who don’t necessarily need the length, you’ll appreciate the comfort. The material is so soft and feels like a second skin, definitely worth a trip to the tailor.
Last, but surely not least, with hot summer days comes the desire to wear the minimum amount of fabric, especially when you live in areas where humidity is common. James Perse tees are my answer during these summer months, and of course they are great for layering, as the weather cools. The cotton is high quality, super soft and thin. The tees are also offered in a wide variety of colours and styles, and they look great with jeans, trousers, shorts and skirts. They have become a staple in my wardrobe, and by now, you may know it’s all about the quality for me, so yes, they last forever and a day… not really, but you’ll surely have them for years to come;).
