Back at it with another beauty/lifestyle segment. It’s the second of my spring segments at ChCh Morning live.

I worked with some amazing brands that I trust. As I mentioned in this segment, I wanted to offer up some gift ideas that the mom’s in your life would actually use!

Check out the video HERE…let me know what you think

It’s been a while peeps. It’s been a hectic last couple of months. I’ve been doing a lot of acting classes and other types of training to develop my craft. Also more writing for CBC Life. That plus my dad is ill so it’s been challenging. So excuse my blogging radio silence. But I’m still here!

I thought I’d kick start my blogging again by posting some pictures from our January trip to St.Vincent and The Grenadines. Just a few pics.I purposely didn’t take any professional shots or take any flicks with the intention to post. I was really focusing on just being present with my family. Enjoy!

Didn’t think I would love writing for CBC Life as much as I do. I get to write about products that I love and actually use.I thoroughly enjoy it. Plus as an actor, writing always the flexibility I need to be available for auditions and filming. So it’s a win win. For the most part I do beauty or style round ups, but I felt moved to delve deeper into the beauty realm focusing on a topic that’s important to me. 

Hope you have a chance to read my latest for CBC Life (this one made it to the CBC main page :-o) It’s an open letter to beauty companies on how they can level up in terms on inclusion. This only scratches the surface. There are so many levels to the diversity discussion. It’s just about starting a conversation centered around more deliberate next steps. I was grateful to have the sage input from these awesome people.

Big up to Shantel Rousseau, Bahar Niramwalla, Daniel Pillai, Mouna Traore, Aysha Harun, Elizabeth Taylor, Christine Cho, Shirley Wu and Charmsie.

I was in H&M earlier this month picking up some stuff. I came across this teddy coat( or faux fur coat) and I couldn’t stop touching it. I passed my hand over it, inspected it for a bit, then moved on. Then I came back to the same coat again, felt it up again, then lingered. That time an elderly lady passed by and whispered ” If I was your age I would get it!” So I did lol.

For the record she could’ve totally rocked this coat better than me! But it’s such a cozy coat, much warmer than I thought it would be. When it came to choosing these ankle boots, it was a no brainer (Justin Bieber voice.) I’m obsessed with the gold buckle detail and the gold trim on the front. Ugh…I’m currently killing these boots. *Looks outside*….when it’s not raining! Check out the details below. Would love to hear your thoughts in the comments.

TEDDY COAT – H&M (CAN’T FIND THE EXACT COAT ONLINE)

In my latest article for CBC Life I talk about the best moisturizing foundations for dry skin. I have combination skin, my cheeks are notoriously dry. I absolutely hate it when my foundation gets patchy, especially in the hollow of my cheeks, and flakes off. I put together a list of the best foundations to use if you have dry skin. As always if you have other foundations that are good for dry skin please let me know in the comments. CLICK HERE to read the article!

Thanks for reading!
