Find out more about my new favourite skin care product from VIIcode

As an on camera personality I am always trying to look and feel my best, as a new mom that isn’t always easy. I am tired ALL…THE…TIME. So in order to fake it until I make it I rely on good beauty products.

I have shared some of my favourites here before but recently I did a big haul. I wanted to make sure that anything going on my face is high quality with trustworthy ingredients. Out with the old and in with a new they say. And one area I am really focusing on lately is my eyes – because as many moms know, that is the first place to give away how tired I really am. It is also a really sensitive skin area and so I wanted to chose my product wisely. I have recently fallen in love with VIIcode’s latest T2 Oxygen Eye Cream.

About the product

This eye cream is created to regenerate skin cells near the eye  with the help of some true superheroes aka natural ingredients which include


This product is filled with antioxidants. It helps maintain the cells around the eye to keep the skin firm and glowing

Jojoba oil

Another oil filed with antioxidants that helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Evening Primrose oils

Primrose is great for boosting blood circulation, helping give those tired eyes life.

What I love

The first thing I noticed when I opened the bottle was the smell. It smelled really fresh and earthy. I also really loved the texture. I have tried a lot of eye creams over the years but have never felt one quite this smooth before. I have been using the cream at night for the past few weeks and I am already noticing a softer texture around my eyes.

There you have it my friends, my latest beauty secret for you all.





Why VIIcode beauty eye mask is my must have beauty product

I haven’t had a proper sleep in 7 months, hello new mom life. While it is slowly getting better and now I am having one 5am wake up instead of a 1, 3, 5, and 7 – it is still an adjustment. Oh and on top of that I then am required to entertain a tiny human for an entire day. Don’t get me wrong, I love my job as mom but it sure is exhausting.

While pre baby I would find the time to take care of myself, that has now been put on the back burner. Gone are the days where I would have time for a facial, I mean I barely have time to wash my face twice a day anymore, and it was starting to show (the bags – oh the bags). That is why I was excited when I came across VIIcode eye masks.

About the VIIcode Eye Masks

I ended up getting the VIIcode 02M Oxygen Eye Mask for all night repair. You apply these gentle eye pads under your eyes and they go to work right away. The best part is, is you put them on at night and can leave them overnight for the best results so it doesn’t take away anytime from playing with my son.

The pads are made up of natural antioxidants that help  nourish and rejuvenate the skin. They are safe for the eye area and can be on for up to 8 hours. I woke up the next morning noticing such a difference in my eyes. The skin around them was soft and smooth. And since using them for the last 3 months I have felt that my eyes just look more awake – even after a sleepless night.

Ideas for changing up your look at style

For most of my life I have had the same look, long blonde usually curly hair. You can usually find me in a sweater and leggings with boots. You can also count of a smoky eye and nude lip for my on air look. But there comes a time I feel in everyone’s life that you just want to mix it up.

For me that was last year, I felt like I was in a rut and I needed to get out of it. All you may need to do to get to a better place is switch it up a bit. It can be tricky to know what to focus on or what will have the greatest impact. Continue reading to learn some ideas for changing up your look and style so you can feel great and look forward to showing off your new look to others.

Purge Your Closet

Start by purging your closet when you want to change and level up your look and style. I am a hoarder but I made a promise to myself last year that I would get rid of anything I hadn’t worn in a year. I was able to fin a great consignment store in town so I was able to actually make some money off my used clothes.  

 Make room for the staples and some new pieces that will help you become more fashionable and chic as well as comfortable and stylish. Get organized so that getting dressed each day is easy instead of a chore. Sometimes it can be hard to part ways with your items but remind yourself that it’s necessary if you want to change up your look and feel more confident.


Focus on Your Hair

Another idea for changing up your look and style is to focus on your hair. Remember how I said I have been blonde my whole life, while last year I decided it was time for a change up. I consulted with my hairdresser and we decided to go red! There are so many options when it comes to changing up your hairstyle. For instance, you can get a cut and colour, style and curl it more frequently, or make it appear longer and fuller with hair weaves. Experiment with different styles, colours, and lengths and see what suits you the best. Revitalizing your hair will help you revitalize your look and you’ll soon appear more stylish and feel like a whole new you. 

Experiment with Makeup

You can change up your look and style using makeup as well. It’s an easy and cost-effective way to look different and doesn’t take a lot of time or effort. You can view videos online to get tips for applying makeup in the right way and gain some ideas of what looks you can achieve. For instance, if you don’t wear a lot of makeup then maybe you can switch it up when you go out with your friends in the evening by applying a smoky eye. Another idea is to invest in a tube of red lipstick and to put it on when you want to add a pop of colour to your appearance. There are also other small steps you can take that actually make a huge difference, for example the shape of your eyebrows. I never used to shape mine but I started recently and it has made a huge difference.

Brighten Your Smile

Consider brightening and improving your smile and teeth when you want to change up your look and style. Smiling more will not only boost your mood and mental health but it’ll help you come off as friendlier when meeting others. Every few months I turn to white strips to whiten my teeth (it really does help especially with all the coffee and wine I drink). I have also had friends who have decided to straighten their teeth.  Be sure to also practice good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing twice per day.

Switch Out Your Accessories

A bold necklace can go a long way. I learned that early on in my T.V. career. Change up your look and style by switching out your accessories and not leaving home without them. There are many ways to embellish your look and outfits using accessories and pieces that will help you make a statement. For example, you can use a purse or handbag, oversized necklace, and high heels to add style and a pop of colour to your outfits and appearance. Earrings are another great way to elevate your look and appear more fashionable. Accessories and jewelry are a simple yet effective way to change up your overall appearance. You might also want to invest in some gold pieces and dainty jewelry for work or other occasions when you want to be more subtle.

These ideas for changing up your look and style are practical and will help you achieve your goal effectively. Concentrate on what’s in your control and what will help you feel your best so you’re excited to step out and into the world each day. You’ll soon be on your way to refreshing and transforming your appearance and feeling better about yourself overall. It’s all about being willing to change and then experimenting a bit with different ideas until you find the right combination of enhancements that work for you.



4 Simple Ways to Level Up Your Looks

For some people, looking good is near the top of their list of priorities, while others might differ in opinion. Either way, it will probably appear somewhere. The good news is that, even if you’re far too busy to spend much time on your appearance, there are some simple ways to level up your looks.

1, Your Smile

Often, someone’s smile is one of the first things that you notice about them. Keeping your teeth generally clean and healthy can do wonders, not only for your health but for your appearance as well. Brushing and flossing can take care of the general maintenance, but be sure to get regular checkups with your dentist. As well as making sure that your teeth are healthy, you could also fix some dental problems that can affect your smile. These can include stained teeth, missing teeth, or other common issues. There are several treatments recommended by this cosmetic dentist.

2. Your Skin

Good skin can have a huge impact on your looks, but it’s also important for your general health. Dry skin isn’t just uncomfortable, but it can invite infections through cracks and damage that forms over time. 

One of the best ways to make sure that your skin is healthy and smooth is to keep a regular skin routine. This doesn’t have to be hugely involved, but it does need to be done at least once or twice a day. A regular morning and bedtime skincare routine will keep your skin looking its best.

3. Your Health

In case it’s not clear by now, general good health can do wonders for how you look. More importantly, you’ll feel better as well. If you consider the aforementioned importance of good skincare, there’s another step that will do wonders for your skin. Drink plenty of water, it’s as simple as that. 

A lot of people are perpetually slightly dehydrated. This causes headaches, fatigue, and other symptoms that are usually attributed to just feeling a bit “off”. Rather than only drinking when you’re thirsty, aim to drink at least eight glasses of liquid each day. Also, if you do have an unexplained headache, drink some water and see if it helps.

As well as poor hydration, poor diet and a sedentary lifestyle are bad for both your health and your appearance. No, you don’t need to turn into a health fanatic. But, if you try to get at least half an hour of exercise a day and swap out some of your food for something healthier, you’ll notice a difference.

4. Your Clothes

Finally, your clothes can make or break your look. Even if you don’t want to make much effort every day, some tips can work with every style. One simple thing is to have well-fitting clothes. True, not all of us can afford fitted clothes for every occasion, but if there’s one special event that you’re dressing up for, perhaps you can get something fitted for you. 

Most people have their own style, whether it’s technically “on trend” or not. Whatever you like, find clothes that you like and that you’re comfortable with.

How to get glowing skin with 5 simple tips

Skin. It’s the first thing that people see when they look at you and it’s the first thing that gets the brunt of Mother Nature when she decides to be fierce. Whether rain or shine, your skin takes a beating and whether you are tired or stressed, sick or happy, you wear this on your skin. Trust me, working as a weather expert I am outside a ton for work, and my skin definitely feels heavier and warn down when I get home after being in the elements all day. 

The good news is that you don’t have to live with tired and dull skin. You can improve the look of your skin and look healthier if you look after it properly,  and you can improve the glow of your skin in just 5 easy steps! From Nutraceutical Imbalance Therapy to the right skincare regime, you need to get it right for your skin. So, with that in mind, let’s get stuck into these tips for that beautiful glow that you deserve.

1. Cleanse regularly 

Regular cleansing is the very first place that you should start. You need a clean canvas every evening and the best way to do that is with a great cleanser. You can get rid of debris like oil and dirt and you can unclog your pores as a result. This will prevent dull skin that sits dirtily on your pillowcase overnight. Massage in face cleanser before you go to sleep in light, circular motions and go from the outside of your face inwards. Use cotton pads to gently remove the cleanser and you’ll see the results of your efforts on the pad!

2. Exfoliate 

Exfoliation  is something that I recently added into my skin routine and it has made a world of a difference when it comes to bringing my skin back to life. Exfoliating will remove the dead cells so that your skin surface is smooth and clear. It will reflect the light better, and you can choose a physical scrub twice a week to get the best results. Facial peels are a nice option, but they should only be done once a week or less as they’re quite harsh for the skin. Follow exfoliating with a layer of moisturizer for the best results.

3. Use brightening skin products for some extra lift

Brighten up your skin with the right brightening skincare products. There are so many topical treatments out there and these serums and moisturizers are designed to even your skin tone and make your skin more vibrant. They contain antioxidants, and they are designed to be used daily to improve your complexion over time. These serums have so many positive effects and you will start to notice them pretty quickly, in just a few weeks.  This type of brightening product is great for the skin and for your confidence.

4. Stay hydrated

Keep drinking water regularly, and a lot of it. Your skin needs hydration to plump out properly, and when you apply a topical moisturizer, you can see how hydrated your skin becomes. Water is a good idea, but moisturizers are a targeted way to ward off dry skin and make the skin appear more lush and dewy.

5. Add the finishing touches with a lotion that adds glow

Some days when I don’t feel like wearing a lot of makeup, I just add a shimmery location at the end of my skin routine. They are designed to boost that skin glow, and you will see the benefits instantly when you use one. They allow you to glow with a combination of hydration moisturizers and the highlighter effects that will boost the radiance of your skin. Humectant ingredients draw the moisturizer better to the surface of the skin.

I hope these tips help get you the skin you want and deserve. I would also love if you shared some of your own skin secrets with me.
