Taste of the Middle East with Ladida Teas & Beauty Products

Ladida IWC Hamilton Teas and Beauty Products Review

I was lucky, I move to Canada already knowing my boyfriend’s friends, had a degree that was recognized here to get a job and speak English fluently.  Many immigrants, and especially refugees do not have the same experience when moving to Canada.  It still took me quite a while to get used to living in Canada so I am glad to know there are groups like the International Working Centre in Hamilton. IWC provides a broad range of settlement services to[Read more]

Winter Footcare Moisturizing Routine

Wainter Footcare Routine - FaceQ Milk Foot Mask - Avon Footworks Clay Mask - BodyShop Hemp Foot Protector

While out feet may spend a lot of time in boots during the harsh Canadian winter, it is still important to keep them moisturized.  A good winter footcare routine will mean less work in spring, better feeling feet and healthier feet too.  Every so often, I do a deep exfoliation too using The Body Shop pumice line followed by a deep moisture treatment.  But for general moisturizing, I start with a clay exfoliating mask, a moistuzing bootie mask and follow[Read more]
