Beauty Swellness: New and So You at Shoppers Drug Mart (and Giveaway!)

Shoppers Drug Mart New and So You

The New & So You event from Shoppers Drug Mart at Square One in Mississauga just launched this week and is going on until March 18, 2018. I got a chance to check the event on March 12th and if you can carve out some time to pop by, definitely go check it out to see the new products in store at Shoppers Drug Mart.

The event is a fun way to check out the new products available at Shoppers. First, you do a super quick quiz on a tablet. It asks you about your health and beauty interests and habits. Then the quiz generates your results and you get custom recommendations about which new products will suit what you’re looking for. Interested in some TLC for damaged hair? Or hydrating your skin? Your quiz results will recommend the new products available that’ll offer the beauty benefits you’re keen on.

But you don’t just get a list of recommendations, the products just for you will pop out on the conveyor belt so you can learn more about them, and best of all, you’ll get a bag with your name on it filled with a couple of full-size products, samples and coupons to take home. How fun is that?

I’m always concerned about volume and damage when it comes to my hair (which is both fine and also overworked and dry given I’m constantly shampooing and blow-drying it since I work out regularly) so I was so excited to receive both OGX® Bodifying + Bamboo Fiber Full Body Renew Dry Shampoo and the Love Beauty & Planet™ Hope and Repair® Conditioner to help my hair.

And don’t forget to enter my Shoppers Drug Mart New & So You Giveaway, in case you missed it. Check my Instagram post from last week for details on how to enter to win a basket of New & So You products! You have until March 18, 2018, to enter. All you have to do is comment on my Instagram about which new products most interest you (check out the new products here!) and also pop by the Square One event this week. I’ll choose a winner the night of March 18th.

Good luck in the giveaway and have fun at the New & So You event!

Foodie Swellness: “Get away” with Lay’s World Flavourites (and enter my giveaway!)

Lays Chips

 

(*This giveaway is now closed. Scroll down for the winner’s name.)

It’s the wonderful time of year again: When the Lay’s Do Us a Flavour chip flavours are in store (but available for a limited time only!). This year’s three flavours available in Canada are Lay’s Bacon Poutine (for Canada, obvs), Thai Sweet Chili, and Cheese & Onion (from the UK).

FullSizeRender (97)

If you’re like me, aka a potato chip fiend, you check out what unique chip flavours are available when you travel (in Greece last month, we scored oregano chips for our sailing trip). Now, while a trip to Quebec, Thailand or the UK would be absolutely lovely, what I like about the Lay’s Do Us a Flavour campaign is that you get to take a flavour vacation right at home wherever you are in Canada. Share that flavour vacay with friends and family on social media with #WorldFlavourites like they have here in this video. You may have not gone anywhere all summer or year yet…but you can play like you have:

While I have been traveling a ton this summer, I got to host some friends for a World Flavourite dinner last week while at home in Toronto (I ended up holding it at my lovely friend’s place since the picnic I had planned got rained out). I went with the theme of home sweet home, that is, a Canadiana theme and got loads of dishes the included maple syrup (such as a to die for cornbread), a few of my fave Canadian cheeses, a few dishes including thick slabs of bacon (including as a topping to a deliciously garlicky caesar salad), one hefty full slab of ribs, sticky, tender Miami ribs, and some sweet Ontario peaches for dessert. And if you’re wondering where the poutine is, well, I didn’t have to get any poutine, because I was covered on that French-Canadian classic with the Lay’s World Flavourite Bacon Poutine chips in all of their smoky goodness. What a fun summer evening with friends with a feast of comfort foods (with a side of the meat sweats by the end of the night!).

Lays Chips 2

If you haven’t had a chance to try the three flavours  yet, they are available now in stores for a limited time where Lays products are sold, and come September, the Lay’s World Flavourites will also be available in 40g bags at Subway restaurants across Canada, making it even easier to enjoy a virtual getaway.

Foodie Swellness: Quesada burritos giftcard GIVEAWAY

Quesada burrito bowl

 

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. The winner has been drawn at random; scroll to the bottom of the post to see if you’re the lucky winner! Thank you to everyone who entered!

Guacamole, salsas, cheese–I could eat Mexican every week! Whether it’s a night out with friends catching up over tacos and margaritas, or when I need a quick, healthy lunch on the go.

I’ve just added Quesada to my list of go-to spots for a quick, fresh and affordable lunch. Have you been? They make their salsas in-house and each morning ingredients are prepared to be their most flavorful, such as the tomatillos and beans, which are both slow-cooked. And the rice? It’s cooked with cilantro and lime (although I wish it was kicked up a notch with even more of both, but I think most people prefer a subtler taste).

I go for their burrito bowls (sometimes you just want the insides of the burrito but not the wrap, right?). I like it with the spicy chicken and all of the toppings, and usually add guac (guac makes everything better, right?). But you can customize it to however you enjoy your bowl.

A bit of background about the company that I love? Well, how can you not love that Quesada is a Canadian company, and it was started by a guy who was working in tech but wanted to bring fresh, tasty Mexican-inspired food to us all? That was 12 years ago and Steve Gill now has 59 locations nationwide (and still growing!).

What’s your fave order at Quesada? Well, whether you’re a regular or you’ve never been, I’ve got some fun news for you: I’ve got one $50 Quesada giftcard to give away so that you can go to the location closest to you and get yourself a fresh, tasty Burrito Bowl.

Craving Mexican and want to win this giftcard? This giveaway is open to Canadian residents, and you can enter once in each of the four entry methods:

1. Email: Write me at healthandswellness@gmail.com with your name and mailing address (it just makes it quicker for us to send you the prize  if you provide me with your address off the bat). Please put “Quesada” in the email’s subject line.

2. Twitter: Follow both me (@healthswellness) and @quesadaburritos on Twitter, and then tweet:

3. Instagram: Follow @healthandswellness on Instagram; like the Instagram post of mine of a Quesada burrito bowl and tag a friend in the comments who you’d like to share a burrito bowl lunch with.

4. Facebook: Like the Health and Swellness PAGE on Facebook (at the top of the page), and then leave a comment on the photo of this Quesada giveaway of a burrito bowl — tell me which type of burrito bowl you’d order.

The prize is valued at $50 and the giveaway will close at 11:59 p.m. EST, Wednesday, April 20. 2016. Please note that this giveaway is open to Canadian residents only. The winner will be chosen at random. If I cannot reach the winner within five days, another winner will be selected. The winner’s name will be announced on the blog once confirmed with the prize winner.

Bon #burritobowl appetit!

Congratulations to the lucky Michelle M. M. who is the the winner of the Quesada giftcard. Check your email, Michelle for more details on your prize. Thanks to everyone for entering!
