Here’s why I’m not keeping anymore beauty secrets

Recently Julio has been sharing a lot about beauty and celebrity culture online via his social media channels and it really got me thinking. For years I’ve read and written about ‘beauty secrets’ because that was the narrative of the time we lived in. We have been programmed as a society to search out those miracle beauty treatments and quick fixes that can make us look like those magazine covers and celebrities and for so long we all thought that one cream, one treatment, one food could make it all better. I’m here to tell you that the fact is there isn’t one beauty trick that can help you look like Jennifer L. (don’t feel like getting sued) and, trust me, it’s not just olive oil.

Better Late Than Never

Heading towards the big 4-0 in the next few years, I’ve noticed that there is more and more importance on taking care of my skin. Though hindsight might say I could have been better in my younger years, it’s never too late to start better habits for my skin and routines. Recently I had the pleasure of being introduced to Innisfree here in Toronto and I became enamored with the brand and it’s sourcing techniques. SO much so, that I thought I’d share some of the items I am asking Santa for this year that you might enjoy as well!
