Beauty Adventures: What’s the deal with a Chemical Peel?

If you’re going to spend money on one beauty treatment, make it your face. With so many options including injections and facials on the market these days, how on earth does a woman make a choice? First and foremost find a clinic you can trust preferably via word of mouth. Once you’ve gotten some positive feedback from a friend or blogger (hint hint), go ahead and book a consultation. Go prepared to ask lots of questions. When you are ready to book s procedure you will be at ease with your skincare expert. For me, that skincare expert is Rita Moldovanos of Pure Light Laser. As a busy blogger, media personality, adventurer and Mom, I find that I don’t have much time to spend on myself.

Out of the kitchen and into the outdoors with Vital Supply Co!

Fall is the perfect time to reconnect with your health plan. A chance to recharge your batteries and find new healthy lifestyle solutions that will enable you more time to nourish from the inside out. Time is money and life is hectic which means the first thing to suffer when we are busy and running on empty is our nutrition. We know the right nutritional choices but precious time and money to spend on shopping, cooking and prepping healthy meals can be tricky with busy schedules. In my personal opinion, my time-off is valuable and should be spent chasing adventures and playing outdoors, not in the kitchen. Lo and behold, I recently discovered that Vital Supply Co, a Vancouver based meal preparation company offers affordable, convenient, healthy options for adventure guys and gals on the go.  Bottom line, that means more mountain and trail time.
