I CANNOT contain my excitement as I create my very first blog post!!! This has been a dream of mine for a very long time however, being a working mom of 3 busy boys does seem to change plans from time to time lol. I have so many passions in life it was so hard to decide what my blog would be about. I’m a Make-up Artist, Hairstylist, Cake Decorator, I also love DIY projects, crafting and I’m a wanna-be photographer. I guess it’s safe to say I LOVE being creative it fuels my soul and makes some of the more challenging “momming” days a little more bearable.
I always say that I feel my most amazing creations are my 3 boys! I love being a mom even on the tough days their smiles, kisses, hugs and cuddles (mostly) make up for the moments when they drive me to the brink of insanity! It’s funny how becoming a mom makes you question all your decisions. I was always excited about beauty products, obviously because of my industry but it was funny how after having my first son, I was conscious about what I put on my face and skin as I was always snuggling with him and instinctually I just felt better bare skinned around him. As the years went on I started to switch to products that were more natural. Some of the products worked fine for me personally but performance wasn’t great for professional services so I continued my search.
I started a mission to share safe personal care options that don’t compromise your family’s health but deliver on professional performance. It’s been so amazing educating fellow moms on ingredients to avoid and products to avoid all together. Once you make one small change it snowballs into other changes. We were always generally healthy clean eaters but we’ve even improved more in the nutrition area by being more conscious of ingredients and choosing our splurges and treats more wisely.My husband is the true “health nut” of the family… more on that later lol. I will be sharing healthy recipes but also treat night recipes that are delicious and fun…but in moderation!
When I’m not out educating and advocating for safer beauty laws in Canada I love crafting and entertaining. Planning a party with the perfect theme and menu or creating a handmade gift or baked goods in pretty packaging for someone special is the spice of life for this Mama! I love creating and planning events with my kids and seeing their excitement when all of our ideas are perfectly executed!
I look forward to sharing my passions with all of you and hope that you will reach out and share your creations with me too! xo Charlotte
