White Bite: An Experiment in Teeth Whitening (REVIEW & CONTEST)

I'm a self-professed oenophile. As such, I often enjoy a glass of wine (or two) with my meals. And while I like white wines my preference still lies with red - in particular deep, rich, velvety and smooth Bordeaux wines. The only first-world problem that comes with that preference however, is that the wines end up staining my teeth. Pile on coffee stains from my multiple lattes during the day and I'm starting to resemble someone from the cast of Oliver...

Your skin is the largest organ in the body. To neglect it would be such a disservice...

Travel Beauty Essentials

As I’m about to embark on three back-to-back trips to Toronto, Seattle and Palm Springs, packing for these trips can be tricky. Not to mention we’re talking about severely varying climates from dry, cold weather in Toronto, to damp, chilly-to-the-bone weather in Seattle and finally to dry desert heat in Palm Springs. What’s even trickier than figuring out what to wear is how best to take care of your skin in such varying climates! Here’s a glimpse of the beauty products I’m taking with me in my carry-on...

Happy New You!

The New Year often brings with it a time of reflection and a strong desire for self improvement. From gym memberships to detoxing there’s no shortage of things to do to look and feel better. For me, this also includes taking good care of my hair. For years, I’ve colored, ironed, curled and blown it to shreds (sometimes literally). We often assume that haircare is only important during special events or for a photo shoot. My hair will tell you differently...
