Taking my skin is such a priority to me~Good Skincare products are definitely what I indulge in, because I believe having healthy, glowing skin makes you feel that much more beautiful & ready for anything.

I discovered Racinne and really love not only their products, but how they go about producing their products and the idea behind their beauty line. Racinne is a skincare line created for all ages, and they are made with plant based ingredients, offering natural products that alleviate skin concerns from dark spots to uneven skin tone to lack of hydration to acne & blemish prevention. They also do not test on animals, which is a big one for me!

They have four different product collections that you can choose from depending on your skin type - I personally love the Hydration Perfection Series because I travel so often and am always trying to re-hydrate my skin. I also really love their Anti Aging Serum (they call it Botox in a bottle!) it makes my skin feel so soft & gives it that healthy glow.  They have three really cool beauty devices (something I have never seen from a skincare line before!) that help get the products in deeper, which is awesome - It is like a mini spa at home!

They are currently running a Golden Ticket Giveaway where the winner will get a year's supply of Racinne Products - You earn one Golden Ticket with every purchase, you can read more about the rules here

I headed to Paris to catch the end of Fashion Week, and of course I packed along my favourite fall pieces from Express to keep me cozy - The weather was beautiful and sunny, but there was bit of chill in the air so I was super happy to have this long sleeved sweater  & suede jacket to keep me warm.  

I am also obsessed with the hi-lo ankle denim look, and these jeans  were perfect for a day exploring the city of lights.

More coming from Paris,

I have been a fan of Chanel since as long as I can remember. I have read the books and watched the movies about Gabrielle Bonheur, or, Coco Chanel, and have admired and fell in love with the stunning pieces, from bags to shoes to jewels to ready to wear to couture that Chanel has created over the years.  

Attending a Chanel Runway show was as the top of my bucket list- something I have been dreaming about forever - So when I had the chance to attend the Spring/Summer 2017 show in Paris, I could not believe it!

The Spring/Summer 2017 Chanel Runway show at The Grand Palais in Paris was everything I dreamt it would be and more. The energy outside before the show began was electric...and walking into the "Data Center", which Karl designed to look like the giant mainframe computer, paired with the breathtaking glass ceiling of the Grand Palais was just stunning.

A model wearing a robot helmut opened the show, and from there, as I was taking in all of the details of the collection as the models walked, it was hard not to let my jaw drop to the floor because the designs were all so spectacular!

Updated, metallic and florescent tweed, tie dyed fabrics, sideways ball caps, huge oversized earrings and necklaces and even electronic handbags flew down the runway,  giving an overall fun and happy feeling from the collection. It was bright, bold & fresh, a fun mix between the 80's and the future.

Needless to say I was in love with every piece, and felt like I was walking on a cloud the entire time I was there - It was a complete dream come true!

My love affair with Chanel continues, and I am already looking forward to the inspired designs that will come next.

Ahh...Paris! One of my absolute favourite cities to visit. 

I headed to Paris last week to catch the last of Fashion Week and enjoy the beautiful City of Lights. I explored more than I ever have before and ate so many delicious French treats (I can never have too many Pain Au Chocolats, and don't get me started on French butter...the bread is just a vessel for butter for me!)

I have visited Paris many times before, but had never been to the beautiful Jardin du Palais-Royal...Funnily enough it has been close to me almost every time I have stayed in the city, so when I discovered it in the 1st arrondissement, I was so excited!  It is another one of the lovely parks that Paris offers, similar to the Jardin Des Tuileries, but this one is special because of this super cool black & white pillars (which is located at the front entrance, right before you enter into the garden -they can be tricky to find!) It is just breathtaking!

I wore this black lace dress from Lulus (which I just adore, I love that the bottom flares just a bit!) and felt like I had stepped into another time - I definitely recommend a visit if you are traveling in Paris, it is a wonderful escape from the business of the city.

Much more from Paris coming up, stay tuned!
