It seems that everywhere we look these days, there are celebrities flaunting their seemingly ageless, flawless, photo-ready faces.  It can sometimes be frustrating as we ladies try to achieve the same anti-aging results by dishing out countless dollars on expensive skin-perfecting products that just don't seem to deliver.  It can become quite discouraging when we are unable to find products that actually work.  But, that's where Pure Non-Scents steps in to the picture with their remarkable line of luxury anti-aging products that actually do give visible results!

JAVA JABBER: Nescafe Gold Toffee Nut Latte

There it was.  Sitting on a grocery store shelf.  The only one left.  An eye catching golden box with the word "new" written on it.  Nescafe Gold Toffee Nut Latte. "Should we buy it?" we pondered.  "Ok, let's try it!" was our decision.  We are huge fans of the popular Nescafe Gold Vanilla Latte but we weren't sure if this new addition to their line of instant lattes would taste as good. But, into the shopping cart it went and within a few hours was being stirred into our favorite coffee mugs ready for a taste test by the girls at Sweet Delight.

IN THE SPOTLIGHT: The Village of St. Martins

The quaint little New Brunswick fishing village of St. Martins has long been one of our favorite Summertime destinations.  If you are a lover of lighthouses, fishing boats, covered bridges, gift shoppes, ice cream parlours, seafood restaurants, walks along the beach, exploring caves, and watching the tide roll in..... then St. Martins should be on your "must visit list".  As if there isn't already enough interest to draw tourists and adventurers from around the world to this picturesque little corner of the globe, there have even been news reports of Luna The Great White Shark swimming in the waters near the caves.   Yes, it's a fact.  The big 2,137-pound female has been lurking around in our Atlantic waters over the past couple of days!

The lighthouse tourist information centre welcomes you into the heart of the St. Martins fishing district - the magnificent harbour.  In this area, you will find shoppes and vendors offering an abundance of ocean-inspired goods and an ice cream parlour that beckons tourists who are looking to cool off from the heat of the day.

BEAUTY: OGX Restoring + Bonding Plex Conditioner

All of you Rapunzels out there probably already know that chemicals and heat styling products are considered major culprits in destroying protein bonds, leaving hair susceptible to irreversible damage. And... you probably also know that UV rays can leave hair cuticles exposed and vulnerable to breakage and split ends. Naturally, you want to have gorgeous, shiny hair but sometimes the daily routine of beautifying and those costly visits to the salon for bleaching or colouring can catch up with you and leave you with dry, brittle, over-processed hair. So, if you detect any damage to your lovely locks, now is the time to take action. Do some emergency hair repair! Even if you do not see any signs of damage, make sure that you give your locks a deep conditioning treatment at least once a week to maintain strength and moisture.

While out shopping for conditioners that provide deep moisturizing and repair, our editors happened upon OGX Restoring + Bonding Plex Conditioner. We had heard about other similar products claiming to restore hair bonds but this bottle was only a fraction of the price. It was on sale for $6.99 ($11.99 original price) at Shoppers Drug Mart on that day. An irresistible deal!
