Didn’t have a chance to share? Head over to their Facebook page and post an inspiring story about yourself or an incredible woman in your life and use the hashtag #HydroSilkStride and you’ll have a chance to win prizes from Schick Hydro Silk.

Not that you should need extra incentive to share an inspirational story about an amazing woman in your life, but you’ll also get entered in a contest to win a getaway to Costa Rica!

You can win on Twitter too! Schick Skintimate is hosting a Twitter Party and a Twitter Contest. Here are more deets:

Travel Swellness: Chic beach getaways

Beach essentials

Sun and sand in your schedule? Just some of my essentials for a beach getaway:

  • Cute cheap-and-chic bikini. So many inexpensive options if you can get away with a string bikini style from shops including Asos (like the one pictured here), Walmart (I have a few from this big box store — you can get one for $12!) and Topshop.
  • Sunscreen. My routine: use an SPF moisturizer (Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration has a lovely coconutty scent and provides great hydration) post-morning shower, and then I throw a continuous spray sunscreen into my beach tote for quick reapplications throughout the day.
  • Flip flops. Just picked up new Havaianas (they truly do feel better on your feet than the cheaper flip flops on the market), but I’m coveting these ones, too.
  • iPad. Yes, I’ve been scolded to get offline when on vacay…but I think I’d just be more anxious. (OK, perhaps it’s time for another digital detox to relearn a few things!)

Still in the planning stages for your vacay? I know I’m always planning my next trip! Be sure to check out the four incredible  Caribbean boutique properties featured over on ElleCanada.com. (If you’ve been following me on Instagram or Twitter over the last few months and were wondering what lovely locales I was at, you’ll find your answer in the article.) I still dream of being back at any one of these destinations on a daily basis! Can you blame me? Check out this breathtaking view…

Travel Swellness: I’m Barbados-bound

Bajan rum punch

I’m off to Barbados this week! I’m pretty stoked — it’s my first time going to this island (and it’ll be a welcome escape from Toronto’s wintery chill). Looking forward to much exploring–all I’m familiar with thus far is Bajan rum punch and flying fish! I’ll be staying at the historic Crane resort; follow me on Instagram for the occasional update (I’m @healthandswellness).
