Skin care has been something that I have always taken seriously since I was a teenager. I remember when I was younger my mom always telling me how important washing my face and taking care of my skin was. Unfortunately I have sensitive yet oily skin, so it is really hard to find the right products that will work with my combination skin type. I find a lot of them can make me break out or dry my face out and than other ones will leave me feeling all greasy and smothered. For a long time I thought the more expensive the product the better it must be but as I got older I quickly learnt that is not true.

During my spa treatments at Ste. Anne’s a few weeks ago I noticed quickly how amazing my face felt with the products that were being used on it. I also was struck by the smell – they smelt so fresh and natural almost like walking through a garden. My skin felt so great I knew I had to bring the products home with me. I quickly switched up my routine and got rid of my old products and started using the Ste. Anne’s Skin Nourishment products daily. My face felt and looked so healthy it was like giving myself a facial every day! The products were super easy to use, just your typical 3 steps: cleanse, tone, day cream. I also started to use their foot cream as well as their lotion for my entire body!

The facial line comes in these beautiful glass bottles with hand pumps which is super useful. They are clearly labeled and like I like the natural and fresh fragrances they give off.  All of Ste. Anne’s skin care line is made from products that are grown on their property. The plants were either there on the grounds already or they have planted them in their garden that you can enjoy walking through. After they harvest the plants they send the product to a near by town where they add the filler and bottle the products to prepare them for use in their spa as well as to be sold in their shop. I love the fact that I know I am putting 100% pure botanical ingredients on my skin. I have seen the benefits with their products and my skin feels and looks better. If you wish to purchase any of these products to try for yourself you can do so here. I would suggest taking a trip to the spa and enjoying a spa day and their services and I think, no I know you will really be happy you did so!

  • Long weekend spent doing errands and packing - sore throat, full ears and a headache making this girl frustrated - sleep they say!?! And I say I wish but when your a mama to 4 and moving in just days sleep will have to wait! Thankful for medicine, @starbuckscanada and the fact we get to move to our new house so soon! Perspective changes everything - can’t change how I feel but I can change my focus!
  • Cold wet morning and early specialist appointment where they told me I had to wear loose fitting clothes- track suit it is! #monday #letsdothis
  • The privilege and blessing it is to be their mommy is one I don’t take for granted ever. They were each worth the years of heartache. Today is always an emotional one for me so today I say “Happy Mother’s Day” to all the moms - the first time moms, the seasoned ones, the mommy’s in waiting, the hurting ones, the grieving one wether that be from the loss of a mom or a loss of a baby/child, to the foster mamas, to the bonus moms to the adoptive mommy’s and the birth moms - I am thinking of you today and I hope you feel love and valued because you are!
  • As a mommy I find myself often times so proud to be the mommy of my little people. I remember being proud when they slept through the night or took their first steps. The older they get the more proud I am of them not necessarily when they simply accomplish a task or master a skill but when they make choices that show their true character. This girl had another gymnastics competition today and she was feeling all kinds of nerves but as she told her brother and sister “I just went out there and did it” and that she did. I was so proud of her not just for being brave or not just because she put lots of work into learning her skills and ended up placing in each event she competed in but because my 6 year old was awarded the sportsmanship trophy for the ages 7-9 in the competition. That to me as her mama made me cry and beam with pride. My girl out there with a positive attitude encouraging the other athletes and competing in a kind and fair manner that’s what it’s all about to this mama. I can take no credit for her awards or her trophy today she earned them all but I sure am proud and not afraid to say it. I love you #graylynnhope and I’m proud to be your mama not just today but everyday!
  • Easter behind us (already) May is coming and dare I say summer is on its way... I’m pretty sure end of school will be here literally before I know it and I’m ok with that but lots of exciting things in store for the next little while and these little people make it all worth it.
  • Monday’s mantra! (And everyday) If we all where a little kinder think how different the world would be! Kindness always wins!
