Crate 61

Crate 61: a super cool organic brand that started in small batches from the founder’s kitchen right here in Toronto and now ships world wide. All natural and everything smells so yummy!

If you love gourmand scents then check out the lip balms because they are so true to the described smell, you’ll want to eat them….they are that good! The Almond scent smells exactly like an almond croissant while the Vanilla Bean scent smells like a warm and creamy creme brulee dessert.  Continue reading “Crate 61”

Honey Bronze: A Great Affordable Find


Sometime last year, I was in The Body Shop having a peruse around and I saw the Honey Bronze bronzer on sale so decided to pick it up and save it for when I’d finished my current bronzer at that time. Well you know what happened next…..I came home, threw it in the drawer and completely forgot about it until last week when I was rummaging through said drawer and spotted it. I always love when that happens, it’s like buying something new again without spending the money! Continue reading “Honey Bronze: A Great Affordable Find”

The Detox Market

One of my absolute favourite places to find beauty products is at The Detox Market. The Detox Market originally started as a pop up store and eventually went on to open four permanent locations; two in California and two here in Toronto. The store carries a whole slew of organic, clean and green products from well known brands including Indie Lee, Briogeo, RMS Beauty and Tata Harper as well as several brands that you may not have heard about yet. With beauty trending towards less toxic ingredients and cleaner/greener brands gaining more popularity, there are so many more choices vs. even five years ago.

Here are a few of my favourite staple brands: Continue reading “The Detox Market”
