Self Care / Face Masks / Cozy things- Fall 2019 ✨✨✨

It’s been soooooooo Long!

The last time I wrote anything was in May!!!!!! What an Intense Summer- I am Not going into details here about My Mom. But for the ones who know – You know …… I am super grateful to the ones that have reached out- You know exactly who You are!  It’s Going to be wonderful to write again. It’s in my DNA to express myself a lot so I am excited to Jumpstart my writing.  I have wrapped up a lot of aspects of the way I express – No more podcasting for me- It did well and it will always be There! No more Music for me – I am done! I’ve been writing since I was in my late teens – so many albums on my own and with bands- but Again- I am done!!! Creativity -for me will never end – It will change shape but it Will always be .. part of Me!


In the three months I spent in Ottawa this Summer, I changed a lot- A LOT! And for that I am grateful – It’s not through the easy stuff that we change – It’s through giant challenges that we face head on!


So let’s Talk about some things I am loving in Yupppppp – SKINCARE!!!!

My thoughts

Rodial is definitely one of my favourite UK Brands. I’ve loved EVERYTHING they have done…..EVERYTHING! This mask is brightening to the max!  It’s great for day or evening. I actually love using Vitamin C products now, I want my skin to be extra bright. A+!

My thoughts

I have this thing for charcoal masks !!!! I really REALLY do! The pollution levels are worsening everywhere and on days with no make up – there still is GRIME! Charcoal is the best detox and so great for even the most sensitive skins! Like Mine.  The honey is a humectant and draws moisture back into the skin after the GRIME- yup I said it again- Is Gone. I love this one and could use it 3 times a week. A!


Cleanse and calms your senses

My Thoughts

Use it as a Bubble bath too! Perfect for evening relaxation….with a mask or 2 on !!!! Bath time is one of my favourite times. 9pm at least 4 days a week has become my ME Time- Bath Time.  This is calming to the max and leaves the skin moist and heavenly smelling. It lingers in the bathroom as well. Pretty awesome as it’s 98.7% natural. Another thing I love about Burt’s Bees- They give You the percentage on each product. That’s really rare!!!! My son fell in Love with it the minute he used it! He’s on a little regimen I created for him and a lot of products are from Burt’s Bees. A+!

  1. It’s good to hear from you again Cat.
    Hope things are positively settling down now for you.
    Life is life, it gets full, I admire anyone who can live it and ‘consistently’ share some of it in writing and I understand those who would like to but can’t.
    Thanks for not giving up on me and for following the Blog, I’m back for good.
