FabFitFun is a quarterly subscription box with seasonal themes. Each box contains an assortment of full sized products that can include, beauty, fitness, travel, jewellery, food, and wellness. The value of the products in this box, are always greater than the price you pay for the box. The box itself is also fun, decorative treat, tying in with that season’s theme. It’s my favourite subscription box. You can click on this description and use the code “BEACHBABE” to get $10 OFF the Summer 2018 box.
I have two cousins who have received these crates for their kids and everyone loves them. Kiwi Co is a monthly subscription box for children, with different boxes and themes for different age groups. Children aged 3-4 receive the Koala Crate with Play & Learn themes. Children aged 5-8 receive the Kiwi Crate with a Creative STEAM Projects theme (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math). And for children aged 9-16+, there are two to choose from. Doodle with it’s Building Creative Confidence theme and Tinker with it’s Stem Project to Encourage Tinkering theme. They have also just launched the Cricket Crate for children aged 0-2.
I fell in LOVE with the Tatcha One-Step Camellia Cleansing Oil when I received it in my October 2016 Ipsy Bag! As a person with a very sensitive face, this cleansing oil is the greatest thing I have found so far. It makes removing all make-up simple & easy and it doesn’t leave my face dry or with any residue. It’s also a great option for travelling as the only water required is at the end, when you remove it all. I can only imagine what the rest of their products work like.

Aveda’s products are parabens, phthalates and sodium lauryl sulfate free, using naturally derived, organic products sourced from sustainable or renewable plant-based origins. Having used both hair products and face products I can also tell you, the products smell amazing. They use responsible packaging with more than 85% of their skin care and hair styling PET bottles and jars, containing 100% post consumer recycled materials. Because they use plant based products though, you still have to be concerned with allergies.
I still remember the excitement of the first time I stepped into a Sephora store. It was pure awe and I fell in love with it. I still love the stores but I also utilize their online shopping for those times I am busy, or they are busy. Product lines can come and go with Sephora but the thing I love about these stores is the fact that they have such a wide range of products. From hair cleansing & styling, to face care and make-up, to body care, to scents. For both women and men. Also when you order online, I find you get more samples than you do in store. You can check out the Beauty Offers plus receive FREE shipping on all Sephora.ca orders.
Honestly, up until about six months ago I had never heard of Skyscanner. When I was in Australia I had several friends tell me to use it when I was searching for flights around the country. What I didn’t realize at the time was that Skyscanner searches flights, compares the prices, and finds you the cheapest. Once you click on the flight you choose, you are directed to the website for that airline or travel agent. There are no additional fees or hidden costs. That sounds like a win-win to me.
I think The London Pass is a great idea, whether it is your very first trip to London or a repeat visit. Not only do you save yourself money on attractions and get Fast Track Entry to some of the popular ones, but also included in the price is a FREE 1 Day Hop-On Hop-Off Sightseeing Bus Tour. All of this, plus you save yourself research time on what to see on your visit to London as well as figuring out the individual costs for each attraction and purchasing tickets.
The best reason I have for buying passes when visiting a city, is you save money. You also get the added bonus of sometimes skipping the line, plus you don’t have to sort out buying tickets in advance. I used one when I was in NYC more than 10 years ago and I loved it. CityPASS is one of those passes that is available for several cities in the USA as well as Toronto in Canada. The passes vary in prices and attractions depending on the city. There are some great options.
When my cousin and I went to Europe last year, we purchased our train tickets through GoEuro, a month or two before we left Canada. I can tell you we paid 40 EURO each for the Amsterdam to Paris train ticket and the price at the ticket counter in Amsterdam, on the day of travel, was 200 EURO each. Quite a difference. We didn’t have any problems with our tickets or using GoEuro. The prices are constantly changing though.
Enterprise is the car company I use when I rent cars in Canada. I have liked my experience with them every time so even when I was in Australia, I looked to rent with them first. This link is for the Enterprise Rent a Car USA website but if you are going to be travelling, check the promotions being offered. There are deals for rentals in several different countries.
The cotton compression socks from VIM & VIGR are my favourite compression socks so far. Not only do I love the snug fit but also the fact that these socks don’t stretch out quickly. And I mean, have you seen the patterns offered? A lot more variety than the standard polka dots and stripes. Worried that your calf size might be too large for compression socks? VIM & VIGR also offer compression socks in wide calf sizes.
I personally have bought, and eaten, many products from Prana. White and Black Chia Seeds, Samadhi Almonds, Annapurna Trail Mix, Go Nuts Maple Coated Mixed Nuts, and the Fuji Salty Mix are all the ones I have tried. I love the quality of everything and the flavours. I also love that the Prana products are organic, GMO free, kosher, vegan and gluten-free.

Years ago I had problems with my feet and the podiatrist I spoke with, recommended New Balance runners. They are the only runners I have worn in the more than 10 years since. New Balance makes shoes for every type of foot and offers different types of support. I am lucky because I have a store near me and the employees are always very knowledgable and helpful. Not everyone is as lucky though so it’s great you can buy them online.
I got a Columbia jacket several years ago. It was waterproof, and had a removable liner for colder weather. Perfect for Vancouver winters. The jacket also wicked moisture away and it was available in plus sizes. When you are a person in the plus sizes, you don’t always get quality products that look good. Columbia products fall into both of these categories offering style, quality, and plus sizes in outdoor apparel. They make all types of outdoor apparel for everyone, including children.
Penningtons has clothes for woman of many different sizes and by various different designers. I love how the options are becoming better for women who fall into the plus size categories. They have everything from footwear, to lingerie to workout apparel to work clothes to casual clothes and even outdoor apparel. I’ve ordered from Penningtons online before and haven’t had a problem.
