Week 17 Berar Family Easter 2018 Shenanigans


Happy Tuesday guys! Hope y’all are doing well. I’m headed off to see the kiddies in Ottawa tomorrow and you guys have been asking for another My Life Post so I thought I’d get one up for you before I headed over! This one is from another one of our fun Berar family parties back at Easter. I had just gotten back from my last Cali trip and it was really nice to see family again.




My brother and fam came down for the weekend which was really nice. We got to spend some good time with Kai & Rai. Isn’t Rai just adorable?! They both are too cute for words. We headed over to Little Monkeys play gym in my hometown Burlington on the Saturday. Ok seriously I was totally wishing I was a kid again cause that place is way too much fun!! So much for kids to do and climb and play, why didn’t we have things like this when I was a kid?!


Week 17 Berar Family Easter 2018 Little Monkeys Burlington


The family was coming over on Sunday around noon so we figured we’d get up and ready a little early so we could shoot some family pics.


Week 17 Berar Family Easter 2018 Berar Family


My Dad put his Panama hat on Kai. Too cute for words! He just turned 2 this past weekend, I have no idea where the time goes. It honestly feels like just yesterday we all headed down to San Diego when he was born. That day was so much fun, my parents, me, Dipti’s parents and her brother Hemant all hung out at an Indian restaurant across the street from the hospital while he was being delivered. As soon as we got the green light we headed over to the hospital to meet the little guy! He was the first grandchild in both of our families so we were a little excited. Ok a lot excited.


Week 17 Berar Family Easter 2018 Kai Berar


The family arrived and the fun began! For my makeup I decided to recreate the Deepica Mutyala makeup tutorial I followed for the YouTube video I posted a couple videos ago. I can’t get enough of this look!! It’s basically warm browns on the eyes, cheeks and lips.


Week 17 Berar Family Easter 2018 Deepa Berar


It was so nice to see everyone. Distracted me from missing Derek for a few hours. Here are my cousin Daman, his wife Charan and our cousin’s daughter Pia. The nicest people!


Week 17 Berar Family Easter 2018 Family Fun


The guys being silly and my Chachi. We definitely had a good amount of drinks that day for sure. Everyone was in a fun mood that day!


Week 17 Berar Family Easter 2018 The Guys and Lady


Ok saved this little princess for last. I mean. How cute is Leeya?! Swear she is so photogenic and looks even cuter in person if that’s possible. She’s definitely giving me a run for my money in the selfie department :)


Week 17 Berar Family Easter 2018 Deepa and Leeya Dhillon


So that was Easter! We are catching up slowly yet surely. Still having podcast issues plus I’ve been sooo crazy busy lately!! Have any of you started a podcast? Drop your links in the comments, I’d love to listen ;)

Creator Day in LA with IPSY!

Week 16 Ipsy Creator Day LA 2018


Ok we’re playing catch up with the My Life posts! Let’s take this back to Creator Day with IPSY in LA a few weeks ago. Guys, it was so, so much fun and informative and just so inspiring! First off, lets start off with how incredibly gorgeous that flower wall is? It was done by Physicians Formula and the perfect backdrop to their new Rose serum.


We started off the day with a little breakfast. There were several brands that had booths set up which was amazing. Genbeauty can be pretty crazy so it was nice to be able to connect with the brand reps in a much quieter and more intimate setting. I got to chat with the ladies at Derma E, which has been a long time fav of mine for many, many years now. I love how natural their products are! I dunno, in my mind I am a wellness girl who eats super clean, exercises consistently and doesn’t put any toxic chemicals on my face ever. Lol, so far from the truth, but hey I’m a work in progress and we will get there eventually :)


Week 16 Ipsy Creator Day LA 2018 Derma E


They had some amazing, informative panels this year. Last year was good too, but I really loved the studio set up session they had. The speaker was Jeff who actually works at IPSY studios and does the filming so he definitely knows what he’s talking about when it comes to lighting, camera settings, etc.


Week 16 Ipsy Creator Day LA 2018 Studio Setup 101


Here’s little old moi. I posted this pic on snapchat. I’ve been having a weird moment with snapchat lately. I hardly ever use it anymore because I use Instagram stories more, but every now and then I miss it and go post on it. I dunno, kinda feels like it’s not really relevant anymore. Anyone else feeling the same?


Week 16 Ipsy Creator Day LA 2018 Deepa Berar


Another panel they had featured Olympic gold medalist turned Makeup artist Michelle Carter. How awesome is that?! My friend Maryam and I got to chat with her after and she is just the sweetest. I can officially say I met an Olympic gold medalist. Really cool.


Week 16 Ipsy Creator Day LA 2018 Michelle Carter


Ok guys I finally got to check out Hum. I’ve heard so many good things about this company. They make vitamins that focus on beauty from within- deep beauty?? ;)

I’m definitely going to try some of their products out and I will report back to you guys!


Week 16 Ipsy Creator Day LA 2018 Hum


Ok easily my fav panel of the day was the one featuring Lilly Ghalichi!! I nearly died when I saw her name on the schedule. I absolutely LOVE her line of false lashes and yes I used to watch Shahs of Sunset. The panel featured a bunch of entrepreneurs with beauty lines (including the creator of Hum). We got to hear their stories on the many, many problems and mistakes they made while trying to launch their lines and how they overcame them. You guys know how much I love entrepreneurs, I mean it is what I went to school for!


Week 16 Ipsy Creator Day LA 2018 Lilly Ghalichi


We ended the day off with the infamous Genbeauty Cocktail party. This one was at Poppy nightclub in West Hollywood. The venue was nice, it was a little smaller but I loved how they had booths everywhere so we got to sit which is great for this old lady over here. Swear ever since I turned 40 I just can’t survive in heels anymore! Or can’t be bothered, same thing. It was so nice cause we got to meet a lot of the other creators and I got to make some new friends too :)


Week 16 Ipsy Creator Day LA 2018 Cocktail Party



All in all it was an amazing day as usual, I don’t think the IPSY team can go wrong, they treat us creators so well. Can’t wait for the next one! Have any of you been to Genbeauty? What did you think?


Catching up on the My Life Posts!

St Paddys Day Vlog in San Diego


Ok so if you guys read my last post you would’ve seen me talk about how I have been struggling with being in a long distance relationship and how it’s starting to affect my life and my blog. I just wanted to be real with you guys. I’m feeling a little more settled now and decided it’s time to play catch up!


If you guys follow me on my Youtube channel you probably would have seen the vlog Derek and I recorded for St Paddy’s day in San Diego. I’ve been wanting to vlog more lately so we figured it would be the perfect day to give you all a little sneak peek into our lives. Honestly guys, we had so much fun running around the city!! Derek got pretty into it by the end of the vlog and even helped me with the editing.


Let me know if you guys want to see more of these. I’m thinking I might want to even turn the My Life posts into a weekly vlog. Haven’t made up my mind yet, plus I’m still in Canada so that kind of makes it difficult, but let me know what you guys would like to see regardless.


So here is the vlog! I’ll be playing catch up on the My Life post next week with our Easter festivities last week and other stuff I got upto when I was in California. Also if you want to see a breakdown on the makeup in this video, join the Deep Beauty Facebook community!



My Life- San Diego Fun + Losing My ID at the Beach!

Monday, March 12, 2018 0 0

Week 15 Pacific Beach San Diego


What an eventful week guys!! Feel like I should’ve vlogged the whole thing because so much happened. Btw if you guys ever want to see the My Life post as a vlog instead, let me know in the comments ;)


So let’s take this back to the beginning of the week. I had a surprise visit by an old friend, Amrita. Her and I went to high school together but lost touch. However, she did grow up in the same city and was friends with Sonalee. They kept in touch so when I found out she was coming to town for a conference, I knew we had to catch up!


Week 15 Lunch with an Old Friend


We headed to lunch at Puesto in Seaport which is right by the conference centre (you know the place where Comic Con happens). She was only in town for a couple days so I had to get her out to the beach as well so we hit up Pacific Beach too.


Week 15 White Sangria at Waterbar in Pacific Beach


We ended up at this new place called Waterbar which is so, so nice. A little more upscale for PB and the view is amazing because the one wall is just open and facing the ocean. This was our view.


Week 15 View from Waterbar in Pacific Beach


It was so good catching up with her and getting some good quality girl time in. I don’t know too many people in San Diego so I love it when people visit!


Ok so have any of you tried cauliflower crust pizza yet? Derek and I have been trying to be a lot healthier lately and upping our veggie intake so when we saw this at Trader Joe’s it was a no brainer. Guys let me tell you, if I only had to have pizza this way I would not be sad. It was so, so good for the fact that it was guilt free pizza. Let me know if you end up trying it!


Week 15 Cauliflower Crust Pizza


We headed out to our fav burger joint in San Diego, Balboa Bar & Grille. They only cook burgers medium. The first time I was there I was a little apprehensive, but now I won’t eat them any other way if I can help it. Strange because one of the waiters back home was telling me that you can’t specify how you want your burgers cooked in Canada. Oh, and here’s a pic of my jalapeño margarita. Yummy.


Week 15 Jalapeno Margarita at Balboa Bar and Grill SD


Had to check out the new Better Buzz coffee in Hillcrest. Such a nice place to take your laptop and get work done. Their acai bowls are pretty good, still prefer the one at Westbean in Bankers Hill.


Week 15 Acai Bowl at Hillcrest Better Buzz Coffee


Met up with a fellow Skinny Confidential mentee, Rachel aka Cold Brew Chick! Lauryn started mentoring her after the end of my mentorship and we’ve formed a little mentee club/friendship! She’s such a sweet girl, go check out her Instagram!!


Week 15 Coffee with the Cold Brew Chick


Ok so Derek has the sweetest neighbour ever in life. I saw her that morning when I left and when I got back this is what was left outside our door. You never know how much a thoughtful gesture like this can impact a person. Such a class act!


Week 15 Acts of Kindness


Saved the best for last aka the hubs :)


Sunday we were trying to figure out what to do, and decided to head over for drinks & appys in Little Italy, but when I went to grab my ID, I couldn’t find it!! Seriously started freaking out esp given that I’m not anywhere close to home. Derek calmed me down and got me to retrace my week and then I realized I left it at Waterbar that day with Amrita. So we called them, sure enough they had it so we headed there instead and ended up staying for drinks.


Week 15 Beach day with Derek


All in all it was a crazy, busy, fun week! Have you guys nearly lost your ID? I’m sure there are some more entertaining stories than mine out there, haha ;)


My Life- The 1st LaVelle Party + Oscars Fun!

Monday, March 5, 2018 0 0

Week 14 The first LaVelle party and Oscars fun


We’re back in Cali baby! This week was pretty quiet until the weekend which was so much fun. Not only was it my fav time of year aka the Oscars, but Derek and I threw our very first dinner party ever! Who knew adulting could be so much fun haha.


Let’s take this back to ealier this week. Derek and I headed out for dinner at Barrio Star in Bankers Hill. We’ve been trying to be more veggie conscious so we ordered lettuce wrap tacos. So, so good and the decor in this place is super pretty!


Week 14 Dinner at Barrio Star


So you guys know my brother and sister in law used to live in Cali, but other than that I don’t have much family here except for my cousin Shailly and her family which I’m so grateful for. Shailly grew up in Ludhiana, India and because we used to visit India a lot when I was growing up I got to know her and her sister Kitty pretty well. So whenever I visit San Diego, we always make sure to see each other. Usually Derek and I head up to her house which is beautiful and in a gated community up in the mountain but it was time to have them over so it kicked our butt into this home improvement frenzy.


Week 14 Dresser Before


We had been searching and searching for a dresser to hold all my makeup for EVER. We just couldn’t find anything that was perfect for the space plus the right feel. We were heading home from another unsuccessful search at Ikea when we magically found this dresser by the garbage outside. Talk about divine intervention. Not only was it the perfect size, but it was also in great condition.


Week 14 Dresser After


So we brought it home, sanded it and primed and painted it and turned it into this!! I am loving furniture makeovers. So much fun, and ever since Jackie showed me how easy it could be by using spray paint, it’s just taken the whole intimidation factor out of it.


Week 14 Dresser knob before


We even redid the knobs. With only spray paint!! How crazy is that?


Week 14 Dresser knob after


So Shailly and fam came over for dinner on Saturday night. Derek was so excited to get to cook for them. He made cuban food which was so delicious. He’s so good to my family, I’m so lucky :)

Can you believe it was my first time trying cuban food? I know I’m Canadian and we love to travel to Cuba and all, but I have never ever been.


Week 14 First LaVelle party


This takes us to Oscars Sunday. My cousin Monique and I started a new tradition last year, a WhatsApp Oscars drinking game. Genius right? :P

We had so much fun last year just the two of us that we decided to do it again this year with more girls. We just grabbed some rules online- like anytime Jimmy Kimmel mentioned Matt Damon you’d have to drink. Needless to say we were pretty happy by the end of the night, haha.


Week 14 Oscars Drinking Game Whatsapp Party


So ya this was definitely a fun week. Any time I’m in San Diego with Derek is a fun week!

Question- Did you make any Oscars predictions and if so did you get them right? What was your fav pic from this year?


My Life- Decluttering My Life + Back to San Diego!

Week 13 Travelling to San-Diego


Hello from sunny San Diego!! I’m back visiting with the hubs for a few weeks! Always so great being together. Plus I’ve got Genbeauty LA coming up in March. Is anyone else going? If you see me, say hi!

So last week was pretty hectic. Doing the long distance thing definitely requires a TON of organization. Luckily I love being organized so that helps. Still there’s a lot that goes into planning your life. I might just do a video with tips to help you guys that are in LDR’s. Let me know if you’d want to see that.


Week 13 Declutter Challenge


So we wrapped the Declutter Challenge in the Deep Beauty Facebook group! I think this was our most successful challenge so far! The ladies were really into it and we got a lot of clutter tossed. My room definitely looks a gazillion times better!


Week 13 Jackie's Daughter Evelyn Harper


I also got to see one of my really good friends Jackie and her baby Evie. I hadn’t seen them since her baby shower a couple months ago! Evie is so freakin adorable and such a good baby.  Jackie is such a good mom. She makes it look so easy!!

We got to record a blindfolded makeup challenge, so excited to share that with you guys. It’s hilarious and so much harder than I thought!


Week 13 Chef LaVelle Eggs Benedict


So I got into San Diego on Friday. It was sunny and gorgeous as usual but a little chilly. Not complaining though, I absolutely Southern California and any time I get to spend with Derek is amazing.


Week 13 Derek and I out for Indian Food


I took him to have dosa. He loves Indian food but has never tried dosa before. He loved it :)


Week 13 Tiramisu at Cucina Urbana


We headed out to one of our fav Italian restaurants in SD on Saturday night, Cucina Urbana. I just love the vibe there and the food is amazing.


Week 13 Charcuterie and Walking Dead


Yesterday was the return of Walking Dead!! So fun. Hubs did up a delicious charcuterie board, we had some rose and watched the show. Do you guys watch? It’s really good but I just want them to find a cure already. I guess the show would be over then. Oh one thing I’d love to do is go to a live recording of Talking Dead. That would be so much fun!!

That was my week! What show are you guys crazy about?

My Life- Berar Family Parties + Valentine’s!

Week 12 Berar Family Parties and Valentines


Happy Family Day to my fellow Canadians! Hope you guys are all enjoying this time with your families. I was at work this morning and evening, the news never sleeps.


What a week! Life definitely knocked me on my butt. I ended up catching a stomach bug and spent half the week recuperating in time for one of our infamous Berar family parties! It was for my cousin Kelly’s daughter Leeya and was so much fun.


Week 12 Alopecia Regrowth


Before we get to the party let’s start with the beginning of the week. I posted a mini alopecia regrowth update on my Insta stories. I was just sharing the different stages of regrowth and what to except. For me it has all grown back in at different stages, some patches are 6-7 inches long, some are 3-4 and some are still filling in. Just wanted to give you guys an idea on what to expect.


Week 12 Valentines Makeup


It was also Valentines this week, I did a little tutorial (the look above) which is up on the channel now. While I didn’t get any quality time with Derek this week (other than FaceTime) I did get some good quality mommy/daughter time!


Week 12 Mommy and Daughter time


The rest of this post will be pics from Leeya’s party. The party started at noon and went well into the evening. Here are the ladies singing and dancing. Too cute.


Week 12 Boliyan


Here are my cousins and I. Juhi is on the left and Mona is on the right :)


Week 12 Berar Family Parties


Tania and I played a few rounds of Jenga. Can you believe I’ve never played?! It was so fun! I lost, but it was still just a really fun game. I’d love to play one of those giant Jenga games you see at bars.


Week 12 Jenga


The dessert table. The cupcakes were so good. If you’re looking for a good cupcake shop in Mississauga, check out Swirls on Queen St.


Week 12 Dessert table for Leeya


Saved the best for last! My cousin Kelly and her unbelievably adorable daughter Leeya. I was telling Kelly how Leeya reminds me of Snow White. The cutest baby. Next to Kai and Rai of course. I think they’re all tied for first place ;)


Week 12 Kelly and Leeya


That was the week! What did you guys get up to for Family Day?


My Life- Family Time & Behind the Scenes at a TV Station

Week 11 Family Time and Behind the scenes at a TV Station


Back with another My Life post for ya guys! This past week was crazy busy, did some travelling out to Ottawa to visit my brother’s family, did a beauty segment on a TV station there and got to meet up with my friend Happy and watch her eat some crazy stuff…and I vlogged it all!! The video is at the end of this post, but let’s get into the week before I have to head off to CH.


Week 10 Ottawa Road Trip


So the drive there and back was pretty crazy. Everyone knows that Canada has pretty cold winters, but we really haven’t get nearly as much snow as we did when I was a kid. This winter has changed that all. It’s been nothing but massive snowfalls since I’ve been back from California!! Anyways, the drive was worth it because I got to meet my new nephew Rai! What a cutie!!


Week 10 Rai Berar


Can’t forget the O.G Kai :) He’s so freakin adorable and is saying a few words now and his smile just melts my heart.


Week 10 Kai Berar


So as I mentioned, I did a little beauty segment on Daytime Ottawa which was a lot of fun! I’ve only been on my station that I work at, CH and then of course Eye on Asia, so it was really cool going to a different station. We talked Valentine’s beauty and gift ideas.


Week 10 Daytime Ottawa Beauty Segment


Whenever I’m in Ottawa I always meet up with my friend Happy. We’ve been friends since high school, and we didn’t even go to the same one! She was friends with my cousins and we’ve all adopted her into our family so everyone knows her.


Week 10 Dinner with Happy at El Camino Ottawa


We went to El Camino which is a pretty popular Mexican restaurant in Ottawa. Funny cause Derek and I love going to the El Camino in San Diego, but they’re not even the same owners or anything. Happy was so brave with her order.


Week 10 El Camino Pig's Head


She had the pig’s head taco which we couldn’t believe but they actually cut it up right in front of us (so, so happy I had already finished my food by that time) and an ox tongue taco. I mean I thought I was pretty adventurous with food, but definitely not even close to her. I could never.


Week 10 El Camino Ox Tail Taco


So I got back into town on Wednesday, spent some time with the parents and then headed out for drinks with my girlfriends Jasmina & Kaitryn on Saturday night which was sooo much fun. I hadn’t gotten to spend time with them in a while. We met up at Jasmina’s indoor golf facility, Faraway Greens and then headed to my new fav spot, Beertown ;)


Week 10 Drinks with the Girls at Beertown


That was my week! Here’s the Ottawa vlog for ya



How was your week? What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever eaten?


My Life- On air at CHCH, Girls Night and Preethi’s Birthday Dinner

Week 10 Girls Night


So I am having a pretty great week so far, I’m in Ottawa spending time with my brother and sister in law! got to meet my nephew Rai- he’s so adorable!! and I’m getting to spend quality time with Kai which is always nice! I’ll post pics from my trip on next week’s My Life post, but let’s go back to last week. It was a super fun filled packed week of events, starting off with my appearance on CHCH Morning Live on Monday. Host Annette Hamm and I talked about Valentine’s beauty ideas as well as gifts. If you missed the segment, you can watch it here.


Week 10 On CHCH Morning Live


We got hit with some serious winter weather last week as well! We got about 10 cm’s of snow I think. It took forever to get home from work! Probably because I drove 40 km/hr all the way home haha. I did not care! I’d rather arrive late and in one piece.


Week 10 Snowstorm


So that was the bad part of the snow, but here’s the good. Freshly fallen snow is just so incredibly beautiful!!


Week 10 Beautiful Snow


Are you guys big into smoothie bowls? I just started having them recently but have never tried making one at home. I finally tried this week! Guys, it was sooo good. It had frozen strawberries, blueberries, half a banana,  protein powder (Vega brand), almond milk and water. I don’t like to do too much almond milk otherwise it can taste too thick. This one was great, although I’d like to try it with a different protein powder.


Week 10 Smoothie Bowl


Friday was girls night! I invited some of my cousins on my dad’s side over for pre drinks at my place. We love our little parties. We all hang out by the bar and have drinks and play music, it’s a fun time. I made some appys too.


Week 10 Cheers


For dinner we headed out to my new fav restaurant in Burlington- Beertown. The girls were making fun of me because if you knew me pre Derek you’d know I’d never touch beer. Hanging out with him has changed that. I still will only have it maybe every few months, but trust me that’s a vast improvement from before. I love the one paddle they make at Beertown- it has Erdinger, Kronenbourg, Cider and Fruli. If you’re a beer person, you’ll know from that how much of a beer person I am not lol.


Week 10 Beertown Burlington


I also had my fav, a burger with a lettuce bun, sweet potato fries and aioli dip!


Week 10 Beertown Burger Burlington


Ok, so this was probably one of the most exciting parts of the week. I beat Derek at our Fitbit challenge!! Fitbit’s track how many steps you take in a day and then you can add friends on your fitbit app to do challenges. We usually do the work week challenge and I almost always lose to him because he’s on his feet for work all day long and I am not. I was so proud of my trophy. Guys if you’re looking for something to get you moving more, seriously look into the fitbit. This isn’t sponsored by them or anything, I just really love it!


Week 10 Fitbit Challenge Win


Saturday night we went out for dinner with my cousins on my mom’s side for my cousin Preethi’s birthday. We headed over to Saucy’s in Mississauga. Great restaurant and great food! It was nice having good quality girl time, so necessary sometimes!


Week 10 Saucys Mississauga


Here’s my cousin Preethi and Shishee. The restaurant did a little gelato birthday dessert for her.


Week 10 Preethi's birthday


That was the week! How was your guys week? Do any of you have fitbits or use another step tracker? Do you love it?


My Life- Estée Lauder Event, Toronto Love & Finding My New Healthy

Monday, January 29, 2018 0 0

Week 9 Estee Lauder Event Lip Envy


Hey guys! Hope your Mondays are going well, mine has been pretty crazy so far. Worked this morning and was on air talking Valentine’s beauty (I’ll share pics on next week’s post), blogging now and then back to work for the afternoon. Plus it’s snowing like crazy outside! Snow really is a beautiful thing when it first falls. Anyways back to last week! The majority of it was pretty uneventful other than work, blogging and youtube, but the fun part of the week was attending the Estée Lauder event in Toronto!


Week 9 Estee Lauder Event Soho Hotel


It took place on the Penthouse floor of the Soho Metropolitan Hotel. Guys the room was crazyyy. 3 floors in the suite + an elevator. An elevator!!! The event was primarily about the new Perfectionist Pro line. Let me tell you, you’re gonna love the Instant wrinkle filler. It’s like magic eraser in a tube!


Week 9 Estee Lauder Event Perfectionist Pro Technology


We got to hear about the technology that went into designing these products. Apparently Estée Lauder is the first company to use System biology which is the science of studying things as a whole They used this to help them develop a product that would actually boost collagen in the skin. Pretty cool.


Week 9 Estee Lauder Event Perfectionist Pro


Ok can I say that the food spread was crazy? Took a ton of willpower to not dive into the churros!!


Week 9 Estee Lauder Event Food


My fav product I have to say was the new Aerin fragrance, Hibiscus Palm. It literally smelt like you were in the tropics, but not in an overwhelming way. If you like floral fragrances, you will like this one.


Week 9 Estee Lauder Event Aerin Hibiscus Palm


Ahh the view. You can travel the globe but nothing compares to home. Whenever I see the CN Tower, it just feels like I crawled into a warm, cozy blanket :)


Week 9 Toronto


So I was tagged by Priyanka Oza to share 5 random facts about me on IG stories so I went digging into my childhood pics and came across this gem. It’s Kabir Bedi and I back in the day. It’s funny cause I would not take a picture of him without that can of Ginger Ale. He was cool with it. Lol.


Week 9 Deepa Berar Kabir Bedi


For those of you that don’t know, my uncle, Darshan Sahota (yes from Eye on Asia) was a concert promoter back in the day and brought tons of Bollywood stars over to Toronto to do shows. So we grew up with all these crazy famous people around us. We were little so we didn’t really understand, but man I have some pretty great memories from those days :)


Week 9 The Chopped Leaf Burlington


Ok so if you guys watched my 1.5 year Alopecia update video, you’ll have heard me talk about finding a new balance with my health and nutrition. Lately I’ve been focusing on adding more healthy options to my diet instead of focusing on restricting. I feel like I’ve tried all of the fad diets out there and they’ve never been a permanent solution, so looking at it as a realistic lifestyle change centred around my health has been a game changer for me. I’m focusing on getting more veggies and fruits in and we just came off of a 10,000 steps challenge in the Deep Beauty Facebook community. Derek and I are keeping it going with weekly challenges against each other. Just do whatever motivates you and focus on adding instead of restricting.


Week 9 Fitbit Challenge



So that’s what I’ve been up to! What about you guys? Have you implemented any lasting healthy changes in your life? I’d love to hear what’s worked for you!
