Do You Ever Get Razor Bumps When Shaving?

Do you ever get razor bumps when shaving those particularly sensitive areas? I do; it must be due to my super sensitive skin! Those bumps HURT and they look terrible. When I first started shaving, I did it behind my mother’s back. I tried to tell her that I wanted to shave, but she wouldn’t listen. So, what did I do? I used her razor and a bar of soap. I had NO idea what I was doing; I cut myself, I got razor bumps and I bled! Because of my experience, I promised myself that one day, if I … Continue reading

REVIEW and GIVEAWAY -coming soon: SUPER COMFY Alegria Shoes

When my Mariposa sandals from StepHappy.ca arrived on my doorstep, I was so excited, I cannot even begin to put it into words! I am not a typical women (in many ways of the word), but lately I’ve started to become a bit more obsessed with shoes than I have been in the past. Being on a single income in our house, I cannot rationalize buying a pair of shoes for different occasions, so I typically only have 1 pair of running shoes, 1 pair of sandals, 1 pair of dressy shoes and 1 pair of leather fall type shoe. … Continue reading

REVIEW: Shapercise

After having two recent vertical (YES! You read that right!) c-sections, to say that my stomach muscles really aren’t what they used to be is an understatement!I am always super eager to try out any new shapewear out there as I am desperate to find a way to hold my gut in! What I LOVE about the High waist body shaper from Shapercise is that it is just that, a true high waist shaper. It comes right up and sits underneath my bra line so it starts “sucking in my tummy” right from where it starts! Other shapewear that I … Continue reading

REVIEW: Kushyfoot Tights and Flats to Go!

I went to see Billy Elliot on the weekend (AMAZING show, btw!) and I was gone all day long! I wore my Rib Tights by Kushyfoot. These tights are made with a 3-dimensional massaging sole that massages your feet with every step and that they do–literally! They have little ribs under your feet that provide additional comfort under your feet, especially when you are wearing flats that really don’t provide you with any padding at all! I didn’t wear any shoes on my feet before I left my house (and I usually do because we have hardwood floors) and my … Continue reading

They are available in six shades and contain natural botanical flower waxes: Ylang-Ylang flower wax and Jasmine flower wax. They also contain shea butter, vitamin E, beeswax and are, as always, 100% natural. I love the smell of the tinted lip balm and I … Continue reading
