Canadian Beauty Box “Winter” Review



“LIVE, LOVE, SHOP LOCAL”

Good Morning beautiful souls and welcome back to my channel, I am so so happy to have you here with me, especially on a Friday! I am so excited that it is finally the weekend, thank goodness man! It has been an absolute week let me tell you! Now it’s time to enjoy the weekend and the plans that arfe ahead! I have some fun plans ahead that I can not wait for! But today, I am so excited to share a collaboration that I have been working on for you beauts! I have been given the wonderful opportunity to review this gorgeous subscription box for the Winter from “Canadian Beauty Box”. This company fits me so perfectly, as they feature beauty, fashion and lifestyle products in their boxes. As you beauts know, I am a passionate beauty, fashion and lifestyle blogger so this is golden! I honestly can not hide my excitement in this blog post! I am super stoked to share more about this company with you guys, and the goodies featured in this “winter” box! Shall we get started?!

Can we just take two seconds to acknowledge how adorable this box looks?!

I absolutely LOVE supporting local companies, especially when they are Canadian! Go Canada Go! I am excited this company is from Oakville Ontario, so that is pretty neat! How this company and subscription works is when you enter on the website, you have two payment options to choose from. You can choose to have one season subscription which retails for $69.95, or you can choose the one annual subscription which retails for $249.95. Once you have chosen, you are all set to go! Simply wait for your box to arrive! It’s that simple! Did I mention it’s free Canadian shipping? YUPP. Now what’s in this winter box you may be wondering…?

The product that I want to share with you beauts first is this moisturizing body bar. This bar is absolutely heavenly and feels amazing on your skin. Especially since the winter weather is approaching and the cold weather can create such dry skin. I love putting aside some self care time, and apply this on my body. These bars are made from unrefined food-grade cocoa butter and fair-trade, organic, refined shea butter. These bars are solid at room temperature but then honestly melt when they come into contact with skin. I know what you beauts may be thinking…does this product feel greasy on your skin? Absolutely not and that is what I adore about this! This “NYLA” moisturizing bar retails for $13.00.

The next goody that I am going to be talking about are these super adorable “Canadian Beauty” cabin socks that are the cutest when it comes to the winter season (these are shown up on the first picture). I don’t know about you beauts, but I love socks that are this style, especially when they keep your feet toasty warm as well! Can you say yes please? These socks are created by “K8 Creative Designs”.They give off such a cozy vibe and retail for $15.00.

The third product that I have been absolutely loving in the winter box is this “Nat’s Organic Lab Matcha Lip Balm”. I don’t know about you beauts, but I love a really good moisturizing lip balm in these harsh winter months. My lips are always insanely dry, and nobody has time for them cracked dry lips....am I right? I love the smell and feeling of this balm, it is super gentle. This product is made with 100% Japanese Matcha and other ingredients that will help your lips out immensely! When I say that I carry this product in my purse at ALL times… that is an understatement! Hands down. This product retails for $9.50.

“Hello weekend, I am glad you are here!”

For all you beauty and makeup lovers out there, this one is for YOU! I absolutely adore my makeup and can not get enough of lip products in general. I find adding some sort of lipstick to your makeup routine just enhances your look 100%! I am all for a great red lip with the holidays fast approaching. I think this looks so classy, especially with all the different festivities you may have planned! I am hooked you guys on this “Tin Feather Cosmetics Velvet Lipstick in the shade, “Viola”. GUYS….. GUYS…. can we just take two seconds to address how stunning this colour is! It is a beautiful soft raspberry red shade. This lipstick is super moisturizing and will not feel like your lips are drying out. I have tried numerous red lipsticks in the past but they have always dried out my lips making them look awful after a few hours! Not with this little guy. I can’t get over how flawless my lips look and how beautiful the packaging is as well! This is a must HAVE. This is a full coverage product and retails for $20.00.

I am a huge sucker for stunning earrings, anyone else?

I can’t get enough of these super adorable “NewBorn Feathers 8mm Earrings”. Honestly, these danty sparkly earrings are the absolute cutest! You beauts know I am all about my jewlery and fashion pieces always. These earrings can be paired with literally any outfit look that you had in mind! That is what I adore about these! This product retails for $29.00.

“Let’s support one another!”

The next two products that I want to share with you guys are the “Clean Organics Rose Chamomile Facial Toner”, and the “Design Me Hair, Fab Me”. I love both of these products so much! The toner is so refreshing, and it is super calming! I use this product after cleansing my face and before moisturizing my facial skin. This product is very therapeutic and can be used for the daytime or night time. This can also be used under your makeup or even on top for a refresher. This product retails for $22.00.

The other product is amazing for your hair! The Fab Me treatment has 18 benefits included in it which is amazing! This amazing product helps with colour fade protection, split end smoother, breakage prevention, free radical and heat damage protection, a revitalizer for hair’s natural protective layer, helps with detangling, static reduction and frizz control just to name a few! Holy heck that is unreal, sign me up for all of that! I love this product a ton and have been using it everyday nonstop! This one retails for $24.50.

I am a lashes kind of gal…..sign me up!

Last but not least, is this “LIp Service Beauty You GROW GIRL LASH ELIXIR”. This product is unreal for strengthening and lengthening your lashes with this natural and vegan mixture made up of castor oil, vitamin E and fractionated coconut oil. You can even use this product on your eyebrows as well which is amazing! This product works best when applied at night time as there is oil within it. This wonderful product retails for $25.00.

So my gorgeous souls, this is the end of the review! I hope you all enjoyed hearing about the lovely local beauty, fashion and lifestyle products located in this winter subscription box! I want to personally thank the Canadian Beauty Box for allowing me to collaborate with you guys, you all are amazing and have such gorgeous products located in your boxes!

Becoming a Brand Ambassador for “The Sankalpa Project”

Happy Monday my sweets! It’s Monday and it’s the start to a fresh new week! It’s time to set some goals for yourself & stay motivated! I know Mondays can be a buzzkill for a lot of people, but it doesn’t have to be if you create a good mindset! Remember, if you are determined to have a good day and try your best to stay positive, you will have a good day! Trying to stay clear of negative thoughts will help you out a ton! Creating a more positive environment will help you feel more energized and optimistic.

Find your inner peace.

Speaking of being more optimistic and creating positive vibes, I recently collaborated with such an upbeat and inspirational company called, “The Sankalpa Project”. This company focuses on yoga and meditation products! I can not begin to express how much of a beautiful company this is and what they have to offer! To start off, they are a Canadian Company from Mississauga Ontario, which is amazing! I absolutely love supporting Canadian Local companies!

About the Company

The Sankalpa Project is a company based on inspiration and creation. They base their products on the concepts of mindfulness, holistic lifestyles and being grounded which I absolutely adore! The company uses a lot of eco-friendly materials and is built on their own trifold Sankalpa vow which is to celebrate the whole self , create wellness and to have a positive impact on the environment. I am all for these values of their company and really love the bases and meaning behind their name as well (San- born from the heart and Kalpa-over time).
One thing that stood out to me about this beautiful company is that a portion of their annual sales is donated to a non-profit organization. This year, the company is supporting “Charity Water”, and for every 10 products sold, a tree is planted. I can not emphasize how amazing this is, especially when it comes to the environment and helping out. The Sankalpa Project strongly believes in supporting women which is great, and their sewed items are actually made by local women in the community. Their community vision also extends to free yoga classes as well as free yoga workshops which is incredible!
The company strongly believes in supporting the environment and helping to reduce as much waste as possible. What I really love about this company is that each product is made with an ambulance of wholeheartedness and love.

Believe in yourself & you can conquer anything.

About the Products

I am so blessed & fortunate to share that I am a Brand Ambassador for this amazing company! I can not express how whole hearted and accepting this company is, and I could not be more proud to become apart of this project! I received such a beautiful package in the mail and it honestly brought tears to my eyes when I read the letter that came with it. I am so honoured and fortunate to have been given this opportunity that I am about to share with you beauts! I received a stunning bracelet in my package that believe it or not…. was inspired by me and my Instagram feed! I could not believe it! This bracelet is actually on the company’s website right now and is labelled the “much love” bracelet. I can not get over this, I am beyond grateful and so thankful! The warm colours of the bracelet are inspired by my feed! This bracelet is inspired by the need for love & speaking with love. As you beauts know, this has always been my saying for as long as I can remember, and I can not express how special this is! There are two gemstones that are featured on this bracelet which are Aquamarine and Tiger Eye. Aquamarine is a Stone that is calming, soothing, inspires trust and letting go. The stone “Tiger Eye” is a Stone of protection which helps focus the mind and helps promote mental clarity. The bracelet is absolutely stunning and I can’t get over how gorgeous the shades are! This bracelet retails in store for $24.00.

“…having the right mindset & attitude can literally change your life”

live your journey
Like my heart is actually melting inside…. no big deal whatsoever.

The next product that I received in my beautiful package was this super stretchy cute headband! This is the “Magenta Cotton Headband”, which is super comfortable yet stylish at the same time! This is perfect when doing yoga/meditating or even just going out & about! This looks gorgeous with your hair up or down too! I love how there is a knot on the headband which you can move to the front or the back! There are also so many different colours to choose from which is great! This product retails for $16.00 on the website!

Strive for progress, not perfection.

Beauts….. I am super excited about the next two products I am going to show you guys! You guys know that I love anything that has adorable sayings or quotes. I think reading decorations with a cute quote on them can brighten your mood in two seconds, am I right?! I have lots of cute sayings located around my room and even in my house for that matter! Did I mention they are on all my coffee mugs as well? Being surrounded by so much positivity really makes for a great day and creates such a positive mindset! I received these adorable coasters/ornaments that are so stinking cute! These retail for $4.99 and come in so many different designs and sayings.

Live, love & laugh.

“Rinse, Receive & Rediscover…”

There’s only one of you in this world, own it.

I am so beyond grateful to say that I am part of this amazing family and one heck of a company! This company also has so many other beautiful products located on their website, you have to go and check them out! I want to personally thank “The Sankalpa Project” for allowing me to become a Brand Ambassador as well as allowing me to collaborate with them! You guys are absolutely amazing!
