A “Fresh” look at Springtime


 What better way to dive into Spring then with some great new additions to your skin care regime and make up bag. This season I am indulging in vibrant colors, glowing skin and nutrient-rich ingredients. There is nothing my skin loves more than products that deliver intense moisture. I have compiled a list of items that are perfect for “Must Have Monday”.



Hydration that doesn’t leave

What better way to combat our Vancouver weather than with a product containing the powerful concentrated Labrador Tea extract. I found a new line by Lise Watier, Age Control Supreme La Creme gives superb moisture day and night. This line also has a great elixir for am/pm, the night-time serum is black and disappears as you apply to your skin. The incredible Labrador Tea leaves can with stand extreme climate conditions and do not shed. In my eyes, Labrador tea is a superhero in skin care.

Recently I featured Lise Watier in a segment I did for West Coast Style presented by Pacific Centre with Host Mana Mansour . The show explores fashion & beauty trends, local designers & the hottest fashion events. To prep my make up and hair for the taping, I acquired the help from two talented individuals, Gemma Lagden & Chris Funk from Funk’d Hair

Gemma Lagden heads the makeup department at Shaw TV Vancouver. Over the last five years, her television experience has included network projects for NBC, ABC and MTV as well as national commercials. I have known Gemma gor some time and have been looking for an excuse to work with her. She is such a pleasure to work with and actually introduced me to a few new favorites that are sure to make a future post!

Chris Funk from Funk’d Hair is the “King of the Roller Brush” and flat-iron! I have been going to Chris for some time now, whether it’s for a blow out or some added curls, he glams you up for any occasion. Trust me, your hair will thank you.

Strawberry & Roses

I love finding products that smell good enough to eat! Fresh reminds me of my childhood, spending time in the kitchen & garden with my grandmother. The Sugar Face Polish gently exfoliates with real brown sugar and strawberries, evoking memories of warm oatmeal and freshly baked pie. A perfect way to follow-up and lock in moisture is with the Rose Face Mask. With the captivating scent, I’m reminded of rose bushes in full bloom. I’d guarantee that my Grandmother would approve. Check out Fresh to order yours today!

Red~The new Black

My new obsession is rocking red lips. I have always kept a neutral lip, but I’m discovering how much fun a little pop of color can be. Paired with a smoky eye for a dramatic look, or as a featured lip, Lise Watier’s Haute Couleur High Coverage Lip Lacquer in Rouge Catwalk makes a bold statement. With a lighted applicator and mirror, this lip lacquer will not disappoint. Live on the wild side and add some color to your life.

After Glow

Put a little spin back into your skin care. With this powerhouse couple, my skin has been taken to the next level. The SKN Spin is a must add to any regime, it allows products to penetrate deeper and gives a gorgeous, radiant glow. The After Glow Serum pumped my skin full of nutrients and antioxidants, leaving it feeling restored and replenished. Aging skin is no match for these two.

A Beautiful Blend

Since I love anything pink, I could not resist this wonderful little gem. I was able to perfectly blend my foundation, even in the tiniest corner. With its versatility and durability, the Beauty Blender is the ultimate make up sponge. I love its unique shape and how it gives you a flawless coverage. Who doesn’t want a streak free complexion? Say good-bye to boring sponges and hello to this beauty. For My Vancouver and Canadian followers, check out Beauty Mark
