Product Review: Midnight Paloma

Midnight Paloma Charcoal + Blood Orange Mini Body Wash and Charcoal + Grapefruit Mini Fizzy Bath Soak

This product review is going to read more like a PSA for tired summer feet than a proper product review. You know what I'm talking about. It's now mid-August and after a season in sandals, our feet are a little worse for wear—especially if we haven't kept up a regular pedi regimen. Think blisters, and in my case, bruised toenails that are the aftermath of salsa dancing in too-tight shoes in Toronto. To the rescue? Midnight Paloma Charcoal + Grapefruit Mini Fizzy Bath Soak and Charcoal + Blood Orange Mini Body Wash ($10 each).

Toronto Photo Diary

Distillery District, Toronto

As you may already know from my Instagram Stories, Hubs and I were in Toronto during the August long weekend to see Taylor Swift! I know I say this with every mini break or vacation, but I feel like this one couldn't have come soon enough, especially with how stressful work has been this year. Here's a photo-heavy look at what we did. (Spoiler alert: There was a lot of food.)

Product Review: Schmidt's Natural Deodorant

Schmidt's Natural Deodorant Lavender Tips Sensitive Skin Formula

A cooling hyaluronic body mist that layers well under sunscreen, water-resistant eyeliner, hair products that let you air-dry damp locks and do ponytails and buns...if you haven't noticed, there's a running theme through my latest product reviews and it is that they are all targeted towards surviving the dog days of summer! It's been so hot in Vancouver lately that I've taken to keeping certain skincare products in the fridge. I've also been relying on my latest natural deodorant fave, Schmidt's ($12.99 at Welk's General Store), to keep me smelling fresh from AM to PM. Natural deodorants have been on the blog before and have been a big part of my journey into green beauty, and while I play a little fast and loose with some products by switching between conventional and natural versions, I think I've become a natural deodorant convert for good. All the details on Schmidt's after the jump!

4 Summer Hair Favourites Under $20 Each

Summer hair favourites featuring La Coupe Coconut Milk Moisture Quenching Shampoo and Conditioner, Wet Brush and KB Collection small traceless hair ties in cotton candy colours

I've always been a low-maintenance wash-and-wear gal when it comes to my hair and summer brings out those Lazy Girl tendencies even more. Blow dryers? No thanks. Heat styling? Forget it. Of course, even with a minimal routine the right products make all the difference. I'm talking about moisturizing shampoo and conditioner that'll let hair air-dry soft and shiny sans frizz, a brush that detangles with ease (such a good idea for the pool!), and traceless ties that keep a tight grip on ponytails and buns without leaving weird dents and waves when you let your hair down. Here are the haircare products I've been enjoying so far this season!
