Top 10 Things To Do & See in Egypt [Travel]

 Note: The things to do and see are not in order based on best to worse or vice versa. I went in order to what we did on our trip. 1. Sharm el Sheikh If you go to Egypt then definitely book a flight to Sharm el Sheikh. It’s on the coastal strip along the Red Sea, with warm water and has miles of beautiful beaches. This is a great relaxing break during your trip to Egypt. Some excellent places to hang out and eat in Sharm is the Little Buddha restaurant and the Camel Bar. 2 – ATV riding, Tea & a Bedouin dinner (Sharm el Sheikh) 3 – Shopping in Cairo Check out the Festival City Mall and the InterContinental Citystars Mall. The Citystars Mall is full of a great mix of American, European and Egyptian stores. This mall has 7 floors, approx. 650 shops, a theatre, food courts (yes,…

NEW No7 Skincare: The Serum that was Always Sold Out [REVIEW]

During my years as a beauty adviser at Shoppers Drug Mart, Boots No7 skincare was that one skincare brand that amazed me at the amount we sold, so quickly. A new brand to the store and it could barely stay on the shelves. It was the one product for months selling super fast. I wanted to try it so badly but at that time my young skin didn’t need it. I would try the tester on my hands to get a feel for the texture. Absorbed quickly, felt light and according to customer reviews: promised results that could be seen right away. Now fast forward to this month when I got invited to try the new advanced serums. Even better, now I’m at the age where I could use the products and see for myself the magic that awaits in these serums. No7 RESTORE & RENEW – FACE AND NECK SERUM…

5 minute Scrambled Eggs Wrap with Burnbrae Farms Eggs [RECIPE]

Looking for a super quick and easy way to make a scrambled eggs wrap? You can make one in 5 minutes with Burnbrae Farms EGG creations! Garden Vegetable. They have so many other versions to choose from: Whole eggs, omega plus, fat free, simply egg white and more! I’m always looking for quick ideas on how to make a good healthy breakfast as opposed to driving out and buying breakfast. With two children it can be really hard to make everything from scratch. Cutting a few corners can save you tons of time that you could instead be spending with your family on a Saturday morning like today. I love making scrambled eggs because it’s so easy and I don’t have to worry about flipping it perfectly so the yolk doesn’t break. Just stir and stir and it’s done.

Shoppers Drug Mart – Be Bold with Beauty and Joyce Bonelli

On August 9th I had the pleasure of meeting some amazing people in the beauty and photography industry. Shoppers Drug Marts Beauty Boutiques are doing a special campaign called Be Bold with Beauty from Aug 12th – Sept 8th. This campaign welcomes customers into Beauty Boutiques to choose their new bold make-up look, consult with the beauticians and learn about the products being used to create the new look. A beauty boutique make-up artist did the metallic look on me. Definitely something new for me. I usually go really dark on eyeliner and mascara. This look was light on the eyes, but popped with metallic eye shadow and more bold on the lips and cheeks. Especially for to my skin tone.

Bloggers: Writers, Photographers and Ultimate Content Creators

I’ve been blogging for 3 years and my first social media platform (among the popular ones these days) was go figure, YouTube! The first video I ever uploaded was actually of my first kitten, falling off my desk. It was an accident and I happened to get it on camera. I want to also add that I was young and did not think she would fall off the table. *no judge zone* I started blogging a lot more regularly on my first maternity leave. Now that I’m on my second maternity leave, blogging has been what has kept me sane. Getting back into work mode, to come back out of it in less than 2 years can really do a toll on you. Especially mentally. So this time around I’ve been partnering, collaborating and really getting to know the business side of the blogging world. However, this doesn’t mean I say yes to everything…

Time Management with Bloom Daily Planners [MOTIVATION]

There’s not enough time in the day for me to do everything I want to do. However, for some reason when I have a check list, it can all get done. Ever since I was a teenager I had a habit of making lists in my planners. A list of goals, a list of daily things to do and a favourites list (music, books) to download and to borrow from the library. Time Management with Bloom Daily Planners Now those lists have evolved and the amount of lists I have to make is overwhelming. So overwhelming that I haven’t done it in almost a year. I actually think I was a lot more successful in getting things done because I had a daily planner or book to write everything down in. Now with my baby brain syndrome (it’s real), I forget everything! I’ve been looking for the right planner to…

Take the #PurifierChallenge with Dyson Pure Hot+Cool Link™[TECH]

Ever since I saw the Dyson Pure Hot+Cool Link in stores, I’ve been in love! My son and husband both have allergies and sometimes when we use a regular fan it spreads dust and other allergens. On Instagram I announced that I would be taking the #PurifierChallenge and also shared an un-boxing on my Instagram stories. A lot of you started to get curious about it and called me with questions. Here are all the details about the Dyson Pure Hot+Cool Link™ and if you have any questions please leave me a comment below. Why Should I Get A Dyson Pure Hot+Cool Link™ Purifier? We got this Dyson purifier now almost 2 weeks ago and we started off using it in our living room. Due to my son and husbands allergies, they would sneeze a lot in our living room. I tried everything from cleaning the sofa cushions, curtains, steaming the floors and…
