TEN Easy Steps to Protect Skin in the Winter

*This Post Contains Affiliate Links

My favorite question to be asked is “How Old Are You?”. My response is always “GUESS”! Most times the age guessed is lower than the truth. Why? Because I take care of my skin there are fewer fine lines and wrinkles that would cause one to guess I am as old as I really am. With winter fast approaching, knowing how to protect skin is crucial.

Ten Easy Steps to Protect Skin in the Winter:

 

Winter weather in Canada is harsh. Between windburn and low humidity, skin’s natural oils are depleted. Cover up and reduce exposure of skin to nature’s elements.


When sun rays reflect off of winter snow & ice it can be just as damaging to skin as the hot rays of summer. Choose a sunscreen or foundation with a good SPF count.


Use Lip Balm

The kiss of mother nature’s cold wind, and licking of dry lips can wreak havoc on your lips. Moisturize to prevent chapping and cracking.


Drink more

Skin care doesn’t just happen from the outside. Drinking more water will hydrate skin from within.


Exfoliate Skin

At least twice a week gently exfoliate to brush off dead skin. This can be done with a cloth, brush, or exfoliating cleanser.


Detoxify Skin

Once those dead skin cells are removed you want to follow up with a good detoxification. Choose a mask that will tighten, tone and purify your skin.


Eat Well

It is easy to eat fresh during the summer when everything is in season. During winter months make a special effort to include things like walnuts, cantaloupe, avocado, kale and coconut oil in your daily diet. In a pinch, a fish oil supplement works well too.


Heat in the home has almost no moisture. A humidifier will infuse the air and soothe dry skin. It can also reduce the incidences of nose bleeds.


Sleep Well

We have all heard the term Zombie-Mom. Be sure to get plenty of rest, this will reduce ashy skin and dark circles under the eyes.


Don’t drink too much caffeine……that one might get crossed off of my skin-care list, there is nothing I love more on a cold winter morning than a hot cup of coffee! But I can get my consumption down to 1 cup/day in the quest for beautiful skin this winter.

Black Friday Hacks: Online Shop Like a Pro

*This Post Contains Affiliate Links

48557956_s

Did you Know that BLACK FRIDAY began in 1966 when major department stores decided to reduce prices as a way to celebrate the fact that accounting books (which were done with pen & paper) changed from red ink which indicated a loss, to BLACK, a profit! By 2005 Black Friday had become the BUSIEST shopping day of the year.

Cyber Monday started it’s popularity in 2005 and was the opportunity for smaller retailers to capture shopper’s attention after the made rush of Black Friday. They chose to run their sales online on the Monday because at the time most people wouldn’t have internet access until returning to the workplace Monday morning. Hard to believe there was a time when we would go days without being connected to the online world isn’t it?

Welcome to 2016 where the whole word wide web is in the palm of our hands, and when you will find that most in-store sales can be found online (with the exception of Doorbusters). Black Friday and Cyber Monday can generate huge shopping savings for you from the comfort of your home when you follow some of these Black Friday Hacks. You will be online shopping (and saving) like a pro.

1) Make a list in order of importance. Jot down those big ticket purchases that you have been saving for as well as Holiday Gift Items. Think ahead to 2017 now and get a head start on birthday, wedding and baby shower gifts

2) Check prices a few days to a week before Sale Day. This way you will know how big of a deal you are getting. Watch for “free gift with purchase” deals and remember to add the gift value in to the savings.

3) Review online store return policies ahead of time and make note of stores that offer free shipping.

4) Hit the web early to seize the deal on a great buy before it’s gone! Some stores will begin Black Friday online deals before November 25th. Most will begin at midnight, and if you don’t see what you want at midnight? Check back. Remember, if you are wanting to qualify for a Cash Back Rebate from Great Canadian Rebates for your online purchases you must click from GCR every time you check a store for new sales. We suggest an afternoon power nap on the 24th so you are ready to shop at the stroke of midnight.

5) Set a budget and stick to it. Great Canadian Rebates wants you to SAVE money, not empty your bank account.

Waiting for Black Friday Sales is like opening a Grab Bag of goodies, you really don’t know what you are going to get until it happens. What if you don’t find as big a saving on Black Friday that you were hoping for? Check back on Cyber Monday, often the deals are better, but remember, you also risk the item being sold out.

The most popular items shopped on Black Friday are generally

  1. Clothing
  2. Books & games, DVDs
  3. Toys
  4. Home decor
  5. Jewelry

The most popular items shopped on Cyber Monday are generally

  1. Electronics
  2.  Toys and games
  3.  Clothing

Shop Wisely, Shop Quickly (use notepad to record your billing and mailing address for quicker copy and paste at check out), and Shop Fun!

Winter Escapes We Love

*This Post Contains Affiliate Links

Expedia Ski and Beach

Everyone needs an occasional escape, and Expedia.ca is the place for Ski Bunnies, for Beach Bunnies, for EVERY bunny!

In the mood for some Ice and Powder? Our research of Expedia.ca destinations brought up some of the best locations to ski.

Expedia Skis

Salt Lake City:  Host to the 2002 Winter Olympics, and has a lot to offer. How about spending the day making perfect powder turns and the night taking in a symphony or ballet? Feel alive as you wake up in the mountains, ski out the front door, and attend an NBA game after last chair. Explore the senses as you dine on bahn mi, see a show, spend the night in a boutique hotel, then grab a pour-over coffee and be on the lifts in 30 minutes. Salt Lake City is a  smart family destination as well. Take the kids to the natural history museum or the aquarium between learning-to-ski days.

Reno Tahoe: Not just for gambling, Reno is a year round destination loved by both thrill seekers as well as those looking for a quiet retreat. Relax in luxurious hotel rooms, rejoice in award-winning brewpubs, bust-a-move in hip new bars, and fill your belly in nationally recognized eateries. Ski, Sled, Tube, Gamble, Spa, Shop, Reno has it all.

Jackson Hole: Winter adventures are endless here. Snowmobiling, Cross Country Skiing, and Heli & Cat Skiing are sure to get the adrenaline pumping! Nature lovers are sure to fall in love with the National Elk Refuge and Yellowstone National Park.

Ski lover’s can rejoice with excellent offers on these and other snowy getaways. SAVE when you book by November 21, 2106. A winter ski vacation might not be as expensive as you think, I saw flight and hotel starting as low as $664/person!

Prefer to Waste time on the beach? Grab the family and bathing suit and enjoy these gorgeous Expedia.ca “time wasters”.

Expedia Beach Hut

Los Cabos:  Known as the dual destination, Los Cabos gives you both the vibe of an authentic Mexican town (think Cobblestone streets, intimate restaurants and boutiques surround the main square) and a party atmosphere with funky bars and the slick Luxury Avenue Mall centered around the marina. The abundant stunning coasts and lack of crowds at Los Cabos make it a great destination for snorkeling and relaxation.

Aruba: When I say BEACH and white sand with crystal clear water comes to mind, then Aruba is the spot for you. It is said that their beaches are the cleanest, widest, and most spectacular in the Caribbean region. Snorkel, Windsurf, Kitesurf and soak up the vitamin D in Aruba.

Turks and Caicos: You can literally feel the stress melt away when I say “miles of sweeping white sand and turquoise water”. Believe it or not, but not everyone wants to lay all day on the beach. Make memories with activities like glass bottom boat tours, sunset catamaran cruises and tours of the country.

Explore the most beach destinations all in one place at Expedia.ca. You will love these and many more warm sunny destinations, with prices as low as $511/person.

Schedule some time off from the hassles of everyday life- and enjoy a dream vacation to relax and relieve stress with Expedia.ca and Great Canadian Rebates.
