Pure and Simple

My skin has been a hot mess after all my travels in August. Two transatlantic trips coupled with outside food and changing environments left me dealing with painful acne on my cheeks. I also developed red patches of dermatitis on either side of my nose - not a cute look! I could temporarily cover most of by layering primer, foundation and setting spray (like in the outfit pic below). But underneath it all, my face felt constantly painful and sore.

So when I was invited to the Grand Opening of Pure + Simple Mississauga to experience their signature facial - I eagerly accepted. It came at just the right time, since I needed some expert insight to get my skin back on track. Read on to find out what I learned.

Buying ALL of the Pink Dresses

My wardrobe has been expanding at an alarming rate - and I'm currently in the middle of a serious decluttering/donating session to accommodate my new purchases. My motto seems to be...if it's pink and it's a dress, I'm buying it!

Pink Rose Maxi Dress Shein
Dress: Shein

This pink rose maxi dress is an amazing Shein find for $34. While I get gifted clothing from Chinese-clothing companies like Shein/Romwe/Chicwish, I also purchase clothes from them myself (like this dress). There are definitely some treasures to be found - in fact, due to multiple reader requests, I'll be sharing a post with my top tips on buying clothes from these online sites soon!

Our Second Honeymoon in Santorini

Visiting Santorini has been a dream of mine since I was a teen - but as I crossed items off my bucket list over the years, somehow I never ended up traveling to Greece. When my parents offered to watch the twins so that hubby and I could go on an anniversary trip - all of a sudden, the world was our oyster - and we quickly booked a trip to Santorini!

Sometimes dream destinations don't live up to your expectations - but for me - Santorini was everything I hoped for and more! Even writing this post puts me in a good mood - because these photos remind me of how perfectly happy I felt during my visit.
