Thanksgiving Inspired Recipes

This thanksgiving will be anything but typical, so why not ditch tradition and cook up something delicious? I have to admit I’m an avid turkey hater - you can try to convert me and I will try in all earnest to like it. In case you cant be convinced either, I’ve rounded up what are pretty much my all time favourite recipes that are always fit for a celebration. Since our celebration circles will be very small this year, you might also not have enough people to feed that big bird to! Opt for one of these delicious options and you’ll forget the rest. Goat cheese ravioli   I fell in love with this dish when we lived in New York...

Fall Skincare Edit: Myths Debunked

If you haven’t already seen an influx of information in your inbox about transitioning to your fall skincare routine or the newest products you have to get in order to achieve fall ready skin then be ready! They’re coming. The truth is, we don’t need radically different skincare routines for every season - it’s as fabricated as certain holidays by the card companies to sell more. Alright I’ll stop being cynical and break it down. As the seasons change, depending on your climate, the air quality is likely the largest difference.

Cozy Moroccan Cooked Salad

This deliciously simple recipe has been made in my family forever - it's a cooked pepper and tomato salad that is best served with bread, simmered with cracked eggs on top (for a way better take on shakshuka), or served cold with a cheese plate.

Skin Profile: Perioral Dermatitis

Hello everyone! We’re very excited to introduce you to our next Skin Profile: Emma! Emma creates stunning floral arrangements - from her farm to your home - assembled with love in Toronto. Emma struggles with Perioral Dermatitis (PD) a rash-like skin condition that forms small bumps around the mouth (but can also go all the way up to the eyes - hello, been there).

PD is frustrating because it is recurring, often linked to stress and while its true cause it unknown, it seems linked to using cosmetics and/or common prescription pharmaceuticals like nasal sprays. PD is often misdiagnosed as eczema or acne, which...

Happy Tuesday everyone! Today we’re profiling @lindsrosso - Linds shared her skin journey with us so we could share more information with you on what worked for her, fun skin tips & more! We’re so excited to introduce Linds - a Sault Ste. Marie native who is now hustling in the fashion industry in beautiful B.C.! Linds had perfect skin until she was 23, then began struggling with breakouts and rosacea. At 25 Linds was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). Since PCOS is a hormonal disorder caused by enlarged ovaries it can have major side effects on the skin. While we mostly hear about the noncancerous growths it causes, at the heart of this condition is a hormonal imbalance. It...
