Clarisonic's Newest Member The OPAL Sonic Infusion System

I'm a HUGE fan of Clarisonic's signature system (I own 2!) and when I heard they came out with a system dedicated to the eye area I was curious and very excited to see what it was all about.

The Opal Sonic Infusion System is a palm sized gadget that's specially designed to help build skin's resilience over time and prevent future damage around the eyes. The kit includes the Opal Sonic Infuser, a small bottle Anti-Aging Sea Serum, 2 extra applicator tips (3 in total), Universal charger & Stylish Limited-edition travel bag.

How to use the Opal:
Charge with ultra cool charger, cleanse face, apply a tiny amount of included anti-aging serum on applicator tip, apply to under eye area, press on/off button and move Opal in slow circular motion. Once the 30sec interval is over switch sides and repeat. 

Its super easy and with 125 sonic movements per second there is no way this can even compare to the traditional finger dab under the eye!

Why the Opal rocks... with use this tiny gadget helps firm the under eye areas, keep it ultra  hydrated, helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, puffiness, and dark circles which is exactly what this mommy needs! The only downside I see is that they suggest changing the applicators every 3 months (with daily use im assuming) while it comes with 3 applicators thats only 9 months worth. Replacement applicators aren't expensive though sells 4 for $15 which isnt bad for a years worth.

I love the way the Opal feels and although I haven't been using it long I feel refreshed and that my under eye area is getting a little extra and much needed TLC.... Thank you Clarisonic for creating such a cool device that targets an area SO many of us suffer with.

Retails for $215 CDN and is available at

This Mompreneur Gets Organized with Vistaprint!

Running 2 small businesses while being a new mom, a wife and trying to run a household is no joke! I struggle daily to keep organized and on top of things. In terms of my business I find business cards essential and when I want quality cards with a fairly quick turn around time I turn to Vistaprint.

Ive been ordering cards through them for years and keep going back because I get what I'm looking for at a great price. Vistaprint always has great deals on and if you have ever signed up for their emails the promotions come quite often. I often pick up 250 cards for just $14.99 which is possibly one of the best deals I've found.

I recently found a new use for their standard business card for my new business Little Miss Bows and Bands. Hair Clip Cards!  Shown below with my ultra popular Itty Bitty Bling Clips :)

So now its a 2-4-1! A business card with my Facebook page and a neat way to display and mail my clips to my customers. Love it!

I love that Vistaprint offers great deals for its US based users but also for all us Canadian folks that need our business needs met as well!

Have you ever used vistaprint for any of your promotional or business needs? Have you used their products in a non-traditional way? Id love to hear how :)

Sun Protection For Baby & Me With Hawaiian Tropic & Banana Boat!

The days are finally here where baby and I can enjoy the outdoors! We go for weekly walks with our stroller walking mama's group and late afternoon walks around our neighbourhood and Ive been so worried about her skin because she is so fair that she is likely to burn.

I kept her out of the sun or indoors if I could before she turned 6 months because everything I've read says it isn't safe to use sunscreen on them any younger. The minute that child turned 6 months though we began using Banana Boats Natural Reflect on her head to toe. It is a bit thicker and you do have to work it in but I wouldn't expect anything less for a baby sunscreen! I love feeling secure that she is protected well.

For myself I'm in love with the Silk Hydration™ Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 ($10.99) the texture is silky smooth and unlike the Banana Boat Babies it actually melts onto the skin and rubs in with ease. In a rush this is a great feature! Its light weight, non-greasy, has hydrating ribbons that includes shea butter, is waterproof and has a great coconut scent.

The Silk Hydration™ After Sun Moisturizer ($9.99) feels amazing after a day in the sun. It includes ribbons of aloe which has a nice cooling effect. These 2 make the perfect duo and a great must have for any beach day!

These fab products are currently available at grocery, drug and mass retail outlets across Canada.
