Happy Friday! Another crazy week is in the books and I’m excited to see it end. This week’s enabler report is a mix of stress relief (in the form of retail therapy, Netflix and natural remedies) and looking put together in the midst of a tornado. I have no doubt you’ll love these 5 picks as much as I do.[line]
Starting just after New Years and lasting until well into February, I had the worst headaches that would come and go and leave begging for a nap and a dark room. While I suffer from migraines, it turns out that they were a mix of tension headaches and sensitivity to the crazy barometer ride Toronto was having. Saje’s PRs sent this along at just the right time and it saved me. It didn’t make my headaches disappear completely – only strong drugs worked for that – but the minty roll-on soothed me in a way nothing else could. It relived the tension and calmed me. I keep it in my purse now for headache emergencies – definitely give it a try if you also suffer from migraines and tension headaches.
Let’s just say I spent my lunch hour at the J.Crew down the street with my favourite new enabler, Suzanne from our PR team. And let’s just say I left with this tank in two colours. The lightweight cotton tank cinches in just the right place and is the perfect sophisticated spring/summer basic. It defines the waist but also looks incredibly easy. I love when summer clothes look polished without being fussy. Add a statement necklace and you could even wear this to work!
Have you met Kimmy yet? I burned through this Netflix Original Series in a few weekends, and only because I paced myself – I started off only watching it on the elliptical Created by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is the quirkiest comedy about a woman who’s been rescued from a doomsday cult. The quips just keep on coming – the half hour flies by way too quickly. The cast is chock-full of all-stars, too – hello, Ellie Kemper, Jane Krakowski & Tituss Burgess!
Are you addicted to palettes like I am? If you are, ready your wallet – this one’s a winner. Smashbox’s latest palette does more than offer up 14 beautifully formulated shadows – it offers up 14 shadows that can be applied wet or dry, turning it into 28 shadows! A bit of water transforms the shadows in 1 of 4 ways – it either amps up vibrancy, makes it deeper, turns metallic or adds sparkle). I love that I can get so many looks with a single palette! Pick it up at Murale ASAP – you won’t regret it.
The internet has been abuzz with tweets and Instagram pics about Benefit’s latest mascara, RollerLash. RollerLash claims to curl your lashes enough that you can abandon your lash curler! I’ll admit – I wasn’t super impressed the first time I tried it, but it’s since really grown on me. It gives great curl without a lash curler and I have seen amazing results on other people (like YouTuber RachhLoves), but for me it’s more of a moderate curl. Let’s be honest, though – this is coming from the girl who still wants to curl her *lash extensions*. Bottom line – I’m loving the formula and the staying power of this mascara. Give it a try for yourself!
