Looking to tone up for summer? There are cute bikinis, midriff baring tops and short shorts to wear, after all. Well, here’s that Barre Beautiful giveaway that I mentioned a few weeks ago! The prize is a two-week pass to classes at Barre Beautiful (learn about the workout’s benefits here). If you’re super keen, you can try a different class every day, or do back-to-back classes. I am taking classes there, too, so may even bump into you there (definitely say “what up!” if so!).
To enter, here’s what you have to do (enter once all three ways to increase your chances!):
- Write a comment below about which Barre Beautiful class you’d try first. (Read about them here)
- Tweet “I want to win a two-week @BarreBeautiful pass from @healthswellness because I want to get fit for summer.”
- Like the Health & Swellness page on Facebook and write “I want a Barre Beautiful body.” on the Barre Beautiful giveaway post.
Giveaway closes Wednesday, May 22 at midnight (EST). The winner will be chosen at random and announced on Health & Swellness.
Enter away, my pretties, and good luck!

A fragrance and nail polish (and nail art!) collab? Yes, you’ve got this beauty lover’s attention.
Ralph Lauren’s collaborated with Essie to create four exclusive nail polishes for the RL collection of Big Pony fragrances for women.. There’s four fragrance personalities: sporty, sensual, free-spirited and stylish — each in bright coloured bottles and the Essie polishes matches each shade.
And taking it to another level, Essie Canada also had their lead nail artist, the lovely Rita Remark,create custom nail art looks for each personality. For a tutorial on creating the sensual nail look (my fave of the four) clickon over to Fashion Magazine. Fragrance-wise, though, the sporty #1 is calling my name. I don’t think of myself as sporty, but the freshness of the scent seems just right for spring. Spring does make me want to be sporty, come to think of it.
In stores now, each set comes includes a 50-mL fragrance and matching Essie polish in a drawstring bag ($47 each at the Bay and Sears). In Quebec (my hometown province, what, what!), a the bag includes a 30-mL fragrancem, a 50-mL body mist and the matching polish ($67 each exclusively at Jean Coutu).
What personality are you? Sporty, sensual, free-spirited or stylish? And does your fragrance preference match your nail art style choicer?
