Ultimate Anti Aging Stocking Stuffer with Racinne Canada #giveaway


I love my skin care products – they have always played an important role in my skin care routine. A good mask, cleanser, toner and serum is of great importance to me – especially as I get older (to be able to have the skin I had in my teens!!). I have always believed you are never to young to start to take care of your skin and make sure it is at your best so that you feel at your best.

Racinne Canada wants to help women feel beautiful in their own skin and to encourage the appreciation of natural beauty – something every woman should appreciate! We are all beautiful and unique in our way and this should be celebrated. It is important to feel good in our own skin – it is the only we will ever have. Racinne uses seven years of research in biotechnology of rare plant extracts to offer high quality products that will empower you as a woman to celebrate yourself inside and out.

The four lines are:

  • Youth Power: An anti-aging formula to help restore youthful suppleness.
  • Hydra Perfection: A deep hydration formula that leaves a healthy and radiant glow.
  • Aqua Blanc: This formula helps to brighten and reduce hyperpigmentation for a flawless complexion.
  • Delicare Perfection: A formula designed to protect and comfort the most sensitive skin.
I am currently testing out the Anti Aging Youth Power line and loving it so far. From the gorgeous containers the products come in, to the luxurious feel of the formulas and the softness it leaves my skin feeling after application. The main ingredients in this line are Korean ginseng callus extracts, Adenosine and SH-DP-9 to help promote collagen and elastin synthesis. The formula has been shown to firm and tone skin in as little as four weeks!! My constant fear as I get older is loose skin on my face and wrinkles. I know that is inevitable but I want to fight it as long as possible. I want to look as young as I feel. We need the extra care from these products as we get older to ensure our skin is getting enough moisture and collagen to promote elasticity and that full, plump look to our skin.

The formula itself is lightly scented and covers quite well with only a small amount. Which is perfect as it will last that much longer. I noticed that my skin felt softer to the touch after application which I love – although my constant rubbing my cheeks will probably only cause me breakouts in the long run but it just feels so nice I can not resist!

Racinne Canada and Mom Powered Media is now giving my readers a chance to win a Racinne prize pack with a minimum value of $106.97 CAN. Awesome right? Enter via the Giveaways tool form below – good luck!

Make Lasting Impressions with PhotoInpress #giveaway

I love capturing special moments on film. It allows me to relive the most important memories in our life with my family over and over again.

PhotoInpress was launched in Montreal in 2006 and is proud of it’s 100% Canadian product (yeah!!). Anne and Stephane developed PhotoInpress after a trip to Europe. They wanted to capture and seal these memories for their children to carry for a lifetime. What better way to do so than in a photo book!

The steps are simple and easy to follow. All you have to do is:

  • Download and install Book Designer. This is a free software to create your photo book  and took under five minutes to download on our home computer.
  • The fun part: select and arrange your pictures,edit text and create easy layouts.
  •  Click on the order button, review your order and finalize payment. 
  • Your book is shipped to you at home!

The simplicity of creating the photo book was the best part for me. The hardest part was choosing the photos I wanted to use and put them in a folder to upload to the Book Designer! The book I created was a family album to give to my Dad for Christmas. In the photo book are photos of my kids, my siblings, cousins, aunts and my Grandfather. We lost out Grandfather this year to prostate cancer and I wanted to create something meaningful and an album my Dad can cherish.

Designing the layout of your photo book is quite simple and is based solely on how many photos you would like per a page and what direction you would like them (vertical or horizontal). Then click and drag your photos from the bottom bar. The bottom bar has at least fourteen photos displayed at any given time and you can click back and forth on the bottom bar to choose more photos. One of the best features (and one I haven’t seen before) is that as soon as you use a photo a check mark appears on it letting you know that it has been used. This helps to prevent duplicates and if you want to use the photo again you can do so no problem!

PhotoInpress is giving one of my Canadian readers the chance to win a $40 credit to PhotoInpress! Canadian residents, 18 years of age and older can enter via the Rafflecopter below – good luck!

Elite Man MultiVitamins: Increase Energy & Boost Immunity #review

While we all try our best to ensure we are eating well rounded meals following the Food Guide it can still happen that we are not consuming enough of certain vitamins and minerals. A lack of proper nutrients can lead to multiple health conditions as well as an overall feeling of fatigue and I know for myself irritability!

A multivitamin is essential to ensure we are providing our bodies with the nutrients it needs to function at it’s best ability. Picking a multivitamin is usually the hardest part! A multivitamin should be geared towards gender – both males and females have different dietary needs and your multivitamin should reflect this. My husband will always require different amounts of nutrients and what works for me may not work for him. A good multivitamin will have minimal side effects (this can be trial and error) – how many of you have purchased a package of vitamins only to have it make you feel nauseated? A good multivitamin is easy to swallow and leaves no odd aftertaste in your mouth (I can’t stand the slight fish taste some leave – yuck!).

Elite Man multivitamins has taken many factors into consideration and developed a multivitamin that contains an unique blend of vitamins geared towards men. The blend contains thirty three essential vitamins and minerals as well as extra vitamin C, D, E, B6 and B12. The B vitamins are important for energy, a lot of the time when we are tired frequently a low level of B12 can be the cause.

Elite Man multivitamins work to help to improve focus, boost energy and promote digestion. My husband found he had a slight increase of energy which also helped with his focus during work hours and his workouts. He wanted to get his workouts done when taking his multivitamins!

Elite Man multivitamins can be purchased online on for a price of $39.95US with free shipping. International orders (Canada and Europe) can also purchase through Amazon by clicking on Other Sellers on Amazon and choosing the Elite Man multivitamin on the bottom with shipping options to Canada and Europe. The order is fulfilled by Vitamin Elite. Until the end of 2014, Vitamin Elite is also offering a 25% off coupon code! Just enter code at checkout: WK24PTTS.

While taking a multivitamin and ensuring a good overall nutritional intake is important, never ignore your body and it’s symptoms. A doctor’s opinion is always important if you are feeling extremely fatigued and unwell. Always make sure to read labels before trying a new multivitamin to check ingredients.

Elite Man is giving my US and Canadian readers a chance to win their own bottle! US and Canadian residents, 18 years of age and older can enter via the Rafflecopter form below.

Kinivo BTH240 Bluetooth Headphones For Your Active Lifestyle and Giveaway #HolidayGiftGuide

Tweens and active individuals alike will love the Kinivo BTH240 Bluetooth Headphones! Sleek, easy to use with a great charge life these headphones will be the perfect gift under the tree this year.

Kinivo BTH240 bluetooth headphones is the new re-design of the popular BTH220 headphones. Kinivo took customer recommendations into consideration and the new design includes: increased battery life, micro USB charging port, sleeker design as well as a reduced LED brightness.

It was easy to fall in love with the sleek wrap around design of the BTH240 headphones. The headphones wrap around the back of your neck allowing a comfortable fit without it getting in the way or feeling uncomfortable. Pairing with our devices was simple (thank goodness!) – press and hold a button until the light is flashing, go to settings on your device and link to the headphones.

What impressed me the most about the BTH240 headphones was the battery life. Unlike many other devices these have lasted several days on one charge. The box states that the battery life is ten hours but I think they are much longer than that. They have stayed charged longer then the device they are connected to!

The sound quality was impressive for their size – everything comes through crystal clear.

Kinivo is giving my Canadian and American readers the chance to win their BTH240 Bluetooth headphones! This will definitely make someone happy this holiday season! Enter via the Rafflecopter form below – good luck!
