{Clear Intense Hydration}

Today I got some pretty exciting beauty mail. Some of you may know that since I’ve come to Canada I’ve been experiencing some severe hair loss. It’s no surprise. Okay fine, I’ll admit I have a bad habit of touching my scalp a little way too much but because of this, I know it’s in bad condition.

A few months ago a colleague highly recommended Clear’s Scalp & Hair products to help rid me of the bumps on my scalp and better my hair growth. Needless to say I’m excited to finally try it! Full review on these babies to come and yes I will be rockin’ a summery floral headband to boot.

{Philosophy Shampoo, Shower Gel and Bubble Bath}

As a young girl I kinda had a bit of an addiction to cherry flavoured lip balms. Was that a thing or was it just me? This shower gel reminds me of just that. Bathing in that cheerful, cherry goodness. It’s sweet, it’s sugary it’s just oh-so delicious. Sure, you may get sick of smelling this one on a daily basis but if you’re not easily affected by intense scents then I suggest you give this a little sniff.

Between this scent and the Peppermint Stick I would say they’re my least favourite but I do lean towards caramel scents a little more. If you’re feel in’ the fruity smells then this will be the one you love most.

{Philosophy Shampoo, Shower gel and Bubble Bath – Sweet Fluffy Cupcake}

It may sound cliched but cupcakes are what got me in to my undying love for baking sweet treats. I didn’t start with a mediocre fairy cake with pink, runny icing on top. Oh no. I started my baking obsession with the Hummingbird Bakery cupcakes from London, England.

I visited the bakery once and got two things (yes it was that good), ever since then I haven’t been able to go back and so of course I jumped at the chance to buy the cookbook to make their yummies at home. I pre-ordered that gold.

{No cupcakes were harmed in the shooting of this post}

The first ones I made were the red velvet (one of the first I tried). My family were in heaven, I could have eaten the dozen and well, I was already planning my execution plan for the classic vanilla cupcakes. I adore cupcakes.

So naturally, I had to adore this product. Bathing in cupcakes couldn’t sound anymore perfect if it tried, right?

This was my oh-so close second to the spiced gingerbread cookie and the only reason it didn’t win was because the gingerbread smelled like caramel and well…

The Philosophy Cupcake: 

3 cups flour

2 cups sugar

3 tablespoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

1 cup heavy cream

4 egg whites

4oz cream cheese

Directions: combine all ingredients except egg whites and blend on high until fluffy. Fill paper-lined cupcake pans, 2/3 full.Bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes, then remove from  pans, frost and decorate as desired…I’m thinking with caramel, cream cheese icing…
