La Clairière Bio Spa & Hotel: A Review on a Beautiful Spa Rooted in Natural Luxe

Do you remember how last week I was talking about the universe giving you what you need when you need it? Well, it did it again. After finding out that I needed to move in one of the busiest times of the year, having a promising romance come to a close (funny how I end up in these beautiful places when it’s time to reflect on love), and mediating a great deal of changes related to work, last weekend I was {Read More}

Natural in Norway: The Best Natural Beauty & Wellness Spots around Oslo

My readers come from far and wide, but not everyone knows that while I am a Canadian, I blog from Norway. So, I thought it was about time that I spent a moment or two answering some emails from Norwegian LPN’ers through a blog post. The most common question I receive from my Norwegian based beauties is “where do I find ____”.  So, today I’ll answer this question through this Natural in Norway feature. This post will give you lovelies {Read More}

Jet Set & Ready to Go: What’s in my Beauty Bag for a Weekend in Paris

If Instagram hasn’t yet updated you, my absence was due to a quick jaunt to my favourite city on this planet, Paris. I hold this city near and dear to my heart; it is home to some of my greatest memories since my first visit in 2006. Since then I have travelled to Paris a few times a year, and even had the amazing experience of living there with one of my best friends. When said bestie told me she {Read More}

Natural Beauty in the Bag – My “Can’t Live Withouts”

Happy Friday Beauties! Today I felt a kink in my shoulder after carrying around my giant purse all day (#girlproblems). When I finally got home I decided to go through it and figure out what I could live without when I am out and about. In doing this I realized most of the weight was a result of my natural favourites which, one-by-one, magically made their way into my bag that could probably fit a small child. I figured, people {Read More}

Natural Travel Wipes: Beaming Beauty Organic Face Wipes Review

In advance of another trip to Paris (yes, admittedly I’m absolutely in love with that city), I got to thinking about some of my favourite travel beauty buys.  Living in Europe has taught me the golden rule: always travel light. Traveling light here means one carry-on and you’re off — provided you don’t bring any products that need to be checked for “liquid restriction reasons”. Given that I love my products, I have a separate mini arsenal for when I {Read More}

Dubrovnik, Croatia – Best Vegetarian Restaurant & Recipes

When I travel, one of the first things I tend to do is source out the local vegetarian/raw/veagan restaurants or the local organic store (the latter may have a lot to do with the prices of organic products in Norway, but nevertheless, may prove to be helpful to some world wanderer like me — for those curious Bio & Bio is the only organic store in Dubrovnik and is found here). Last week I had an awesome time with my {Read More}

Living Pretty Naturally, in Paris – Top 5 Natural Gems in the City of Lights

Travel Saviour: Natural Beauty Trick – Uriage Thermal Spa Water

Over the past five years I’ve spent way too much time on planes. What does this mean for my skin? Havoc. The best travel companion I bring (and use every night, even when I’m not traveling) is Uriage Thermal Spa Water. The spa water can often seem like a gimmick or a scam, but with 15 clinical studies behind it and the feeling I get after using it, I believe it. Uriage Thermal Spa Water naturally soothes your skin, refreshes {Read More}
