Healthy Swellness: Brita giveaway!

00100lPORTRAIT_00100_BURST20190425181023459_COVER

Who’s with me in that you struggle to hydrate well each day? I’m actually no longer convinced you need eight glasses of water daily (and if you’re ready to debate that with me, may I direct to this this New York Times article “No, You Do Not Have to Drink 8 Glasses of Water a Day”  written by a researcher who points out that that number comes from a study that people/mediastarting touting as a source ages ago but everyone seems to have ignored a key point to the findings.

That said, I do think I could afford to hydrate more often with water and less often with other beverages (juice, cocktails, wine, coffee). And I, of course, think you need to hydrate adequately to keep your body functioning well.

One tool that helps me with drinking more water is my Brita. In the summer, a glass of cold, crisp water is such a relief on those humid, sticky days (especially when I get home from a run). And I appreciate that the Brita filters out impurities, which I think helps the water taste a bit purer and thus, makes me more likely to drink more of it.

Because I’m a Brita fan and because I’d like to help one of you hydrate better, and let’s all do our part in reducing the number of plastic water bottles ending up in landfills, I’ve got a fantastic Brita prize package to give away! The prize is valued at $100; here’s what it includes:

Here’s how to enter:

  1. Check out my Instagram post for this Brita giveaway and enter on Instagram (details are on the IG post).
  2. Get an additional entry by commenting on this blog post and sharing how you drink your Brita filtered water (Room temp? On ice? With a slice of lime? Cucumber?)

This giveaway ends at 11:59 p.m. EST on Wednesday, May 1, 2019. It is open to Canadian residents. The winner will be chosen at random and announced on my Instagram Stories.  The prize is awarded as is. I am operating this giveaway on my own and it is not associated with Instagram.

Here’s to happy hydrating!

Beauty Swellness: Rodial giveaway!

IMG_20190409_155346_1
I don’t post on this blog as often about beauty lately as I used to, but I am always trying out new products. A brand I’ve used for several years and am a fan of is Rodial, especially their GlamStick (great colours and so hydrating, and I dig the packaging) and their masks (when I’m busy plugging away at work from my home office, it’s so easy to just apply a sheet mask so that my beauty routine doesn’t fall to pieces when work is hectic!).
So I’m excited to be doing a giveaway with Rodial, so that you can get to try out the products, too (if you haven’t already, but if you have, well then you know what a great prize this is! The prize is valued at $150 and includes:
  • Rodial Dragon’s Blood Neck & Decollete This lightweight formula is meant to firm, plump and smooth the neck and decollete area, which is often an area that shows aging quite early on. It contains hyaluronic acid to help hydrate the skin.
  • Two Rodial Collagen Boost Lip Lacquers. These are high-shine, hydrating and feature a collagen-boosting complex. Plumper looking lips, and the formula is not sticky!

Ready to enter? Well, head on over to my Instagram and enter there (details on how to enter are on the Instagram post). You can earn one extra entry to the giveaway here on this blog post, though: comment on this blog post and tell me what your favourite Rodial product is (or if you don’t have a fave, let me know which one you’d be most keen to try out!). Personally, I have yet to try out the Eye Sculpt and I am keen to because my friend Megan Munro (you may have seen her on Marilyn Denis doing beauty segments) swears by it.

The prize is valued at approximately $100. Here’s how to enter this giveaway:

  1. Check out my Instagram post for this Rodial giveaway and enter on Instagram (details are on the IG post).
  2. Get an additional entry by commenting on this blog post and sharing which of the products above you love (or want to try out) most.

This giveaway ends at 11:59 p.m. EST on Tuesday, April 16, 2019. It is open to Canadian residents, excluding Quebec. The winner will be chosen at random and announced on my Instagram Stories on Wednesday, April 17, 2019.  The prize is awarded as is. I am operating this giveaway on my own and it is not associated with Instagram.

Good luck!

Beauty Swellness: Aveeno Giveaway!

IMG_20190320_160653

If you’ve been following me for awhile (or have seen my IG Stories of the beauty products I travel with), you know that I’m a longtime fan of Aveeno products (and I was a brand ambassador with Aveeno for a number of years).

So in the spirit of sharing great products with this season, I couldn’t not include one Aveeno giveaway! The prize is valued at $100 and I made sure to include a few of my personal faves and a few others I think you’ll enjoy trying out if you haven’t already.

The Aveeno prize package includes:

  • AVEENO® ABSOLUTELY AGELESS® Leave-On Mask.  This  light formula helps fight environmental factors and signs of aging. And leave-on works for me (anything to reduce steps in my beauty routine!).
  • AVEENO® DAILY MOISTURIZING Body Wash. I shower a lot (twice a day on days i have an event to attend and a workout) and this body wash has colloidal oatmeal and natural oils that leaves skin looking and feeling great.
  • AVEENO® DAILY MOISTURIZING Lotion. I use this daily in the summer on the evenings I shower in the evening. It’s not greasy plus it moisturizes for 24 hours.
  • AVEENO® Eczema Care Anti-Itch Relief Balm. A go-to in the winter or any day of the year when my skin is feeling especially dry. It provides more intense hydration than the Daily Moisturizing Lotion.
  • AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® Make-up Removing Wipes (not pictured above). Out of all the Aveeno products I use, this is the one I use most often. Great for after a workout to wipe off sweat or to clean off makeup on nights I’m feeling really tired,  which is often when I’m traveling, or as a pre-cleanse before washing my face with a cleanser and rinsing, these wipes have moisture-rich soy extract and I like the product’s delicate fresh scent.
  • AVEENO® PROTECT + HYDRATE™ Sunscreen Lotion SPF 45. Another Aveeno staple from my travel kit, as it’s under 100mL and slathers on nicely without feeling greasy.

The prize is valued at approximately $100. Here’s how to enter:

  1. Check out my Instagram post for this Aveeno giveaway and enter on Instagram (details are on the IG post).
  2. Get an additional entry by commenting on this blog post and sharing which of the products above you love (or want to try out) most.

This giveaway ends at 11:59 p.m. EST on Tuesday, March 26, 2019. It is open to Canadian residents, excluding Quebec. The winner will be chosen at random and announced on my Instagram Stories on Wednesday, March 27, 2019.  The prize is awarded as is. The winner will be asked to fill out a release form to claim their prize. I am operating this giveaway on my own and it is not associated with Instagram.

Enter away!
