Ladies, I've been doing my own hair, mani-pedis, skin care, and any other maintenance I require for years. My mother taught me that it's extremely important for a woman to love herself. A huge part of that is knowing how to maintain herself.

From the age of 13 years old, I've been doing my own hair, using my Mom's tools and products, of course. Since then, I've learned many tricks of the trade and developed my own. I truly believe that because I've taken care of my own hair and body, my hair is still thick and healthy and my skin is I've avoided epic failures.

I'm always looking for products that work to enhance my hair and body. Not change it, just enhance it. This blog is a journal of my  like to take you with me on my hair journey. A journey where I'm researching and trying new products, methods and styles.

I am not an expert but I love to share beauty and product reviews, uplifting ideas, and simple reflections on life. I know my special purpose is to help others and boost their confidence.

One more thing. As women, we deal with a lot of the same issues. Let's not only enhance ourselves, let's make a commitment to enhance each other, every chance we get.

You're beautiful lady!

My Secret? Olay Regenerist Multi-Sculpting Cream

I've always looked pretty young for my age but soon after my 40th birthday, I noticed that my skin was changing. I was losing my glow. I was dealing with little random dry patches, a very oily T-zone and mini acne breakouts that I hadn't seen since my teens. I couldn't seem to link these new symptoms to a change in my diet or a new product I was using. Then it hit me, the change my skin was going through was very normal for women over 40.

A lot of women in their 40's experience dryness, an oilier T-zone, and a return of acne. These symptoms are usually the effect of hormonal changes related to premenopause and menopause. Stress and having a sweet tooth can help to bring on adult acne too. I've been using Olay's Regenerist Multi-Sculpting Cream for a while and it works for me. It gives my skin just the right amount of hydration and has reduced the acne breakouts to a minimum. It's exactly what my skin needs and has become a regular item in my stash of skin …

Parkas for 2015 Winter in Toronto

2015's fall/winter in Toronto has been pretty mild but the cold, snowy days of winter have started. If you don't have a good winter coat yet, I suggest you get out there and find one ASAP. Finding the right coat at a good price is not easy but I think I can help.

Check post, updated in 2018, on where I've find warm winter coats or parkas in Toronto.

Here are some places where I think you may get lucky...

From Curly to Straight in Less Than 1 Hour

My hair has grown a lot since I stopped relaxing. The transition took a long time, about two years, so I'm not about to damage it again. Wearing my hair natural has helped my hair to gain strength and thickness. But sometimes I just want to wear it straight and that means being careful not to damage it.

You've been sending me question about blowouts and how I go from curly to straight without doing severe damage. When it comes to hair growth, I have two key pieces of advice for you. Make sure to give your natural hair moisture and go the extra mile to protect it from heat. That's how I achieved the results in the before and after growth pic below.

These results are all me. I haven't been to a hairstylist in a very long time. Not because I can't find a good one, there are many talented stylists in Toronto. I just prefer to do my hair myself myself. Actually, anyone that knows me will tell you that I LOVE♥ doing my own hair. It comes out exactly how I want it to.
