I've had all year to try out some amazing hair and beauty products, and I wanted to share a few favourites that not only do I recommend for ALWAYS, but a few other goodies that will also make for some awesome holiday gift options - and really, I think this is just serving to be my not-so-secret, you should just buy me all of these things list for this year.

All of the goodies I've included in this post are from my haven and sanctuary, the one and only RedBloom, who make my locks beautiful year-round!

Before I get into all the holiday beauty and hair magic, I also want to take a moment to thank my amazing stylist who works relentlessly to give me fun hair - thank you for the therapy, not just of the hair variety! Love you @jennykaydoeshair! - Make sure to check out my hair gallery at the end of the post with some of my fave hair looks from the past year!


I'm going to start with my favourite product of the year - the Aveda feed my lips put liquid color balm! If you're yet to try it, make sure this beauty lands on your list - it's a must-have!

feed my lips™ pure nourish-mint™ liquid color balm

I wrote about this new lip colour balm last time, and I'm still not over how amazing they are - and I picked up another shade to add to my collection, this time in JuneBerry - so good! It's another perfect shade for Fall/Winter - I love how dark and sultry it is! It looks so great with leopard print, and anything bright - I wore it with a great neon knit the other day and the combination was incredible!

The balms are 93% naturally derived* vegan liquid lipstick with a rich cream finish - I love how it feels and looks, which is sometimes rare to find in a liquid lipstick.

Here are all the gorgeous shades...

But wait, there's more... LIMITED-EDITION

feed my lips™ mini gloss duo

Perfect for the holidays or if you want to try a couple of shades without investing in the full size, the limited edition mini gloss duo is perfect! I would be so delighted to find this mini version in my stocking.


heat relief™ thermal protector & conditioning mist

I'll be the first to admit that I haven't been religious with using heat protectors in the past, but I've learned my lesson. That being said, the search has gone on for a long time to try and find the perfect one.

I don't like anything that weighs my hair down or makes it feel like it has product in it. I know, a tall order, but I was a gal on a mission. And I'm glad that I stuck to my guns and tried and tired all the heat protectors I could find - and now, I actually found a great one that I think I'll be using for many years to come!

Best part, aside from the heat protecting magic, it's conditioning and smells amazing. You are welcome!

AVEDA HOLIDAY GIFT SETS (I'm in trouble - I want like ALL of them!)

Just a few I wanted to show off - make sure you see in store for all the other gift sets available!


rosemary mint invigorating travel trio

Anything mini and travel sized, and I must have it, so this travel trio isn't helping my cause.

hand and foot relief™ hydration

This Gift pack has the hand relief™ and foot relief™ in large and travel sizes - perfect for Calgary and all your travels - hopefully to the beach!

rosemary mint vegan soy wax candle

This vegan, 100% naturally derived soy wax candle, features Aveda's invigorating rosemary mint aroma of certified organic rosemary, peppermint, spearmint and other pure flower and plant essences. It smells so good, I've been dreaming about it!


You probably already know, but my obsession with EVO runs deep - I've had the chance to try a lot of the products in their line, although I have to say the Therapist Shampoo and Conditioner are allowing me to keep it real this Fall/Winter season. The great news, Evo also have holiday gift packs available, and this is the winner for me...


Comes with The Therapist Shampoo (300ml), The Therapist Conditioner (300ml) and the great hydrator mask. For a city like Calgary, this is a must-have! Also, you save 33%!

Before you leave me to go shopping, I just wanted to share a few great hair moments from the past little while - so grateful for @jennykaydoeshair and the amazing magic she creates with my hair, and her continued friendship and support - love you!

And huge thanks to my incredible photographer, Elizabeth S. Cameron! @e_s_cameron
