When I attended the Love, handmade show I noticed something really fun and different about the stunning engagement rings on the brides to be! Bride after bride had coloured engagement rings, which were just stunning! I love  how the coloured stones set the engagement rings apart, and really suited each woman's personality! 

If I were to be getting engaged again (which isn't happening, since I'm a happily married woman!) here are a few picks for engagement rings that I would rock in a heartbeat!

Which of these would be your pick? Are you recently engaged and received a coloured stone? I would love to hear!  



1.  Rutilated Quartz ring by Anna Sheffield // 2. Pear Rosette ring by Anna Sheffield  // 3. Yellow Diamond ring by Tiffany's//  4. Cushion Cut Morganite ring Etsy//  5. Round Cut Rose Gold ring Etsy  

And now to announce the winner of the Love, handmade show giveaway winner! Congratulations to Carly and her fiancé who are getting married this August! We'll be busy getting these invites out ASAP, so stay tuned to see the behind the scenes process for designing these invites, as well as the final result!  

My Winter Skincare Essentials

Fab FindsChristine BretonComment

Since the east coast of North America seems to be having a winter that JUST WON'T QUIT, I thought I would share my winter weather skincare essentials with you! These are all new to me products that I've been using during the cold winter months, and they have made all the difference this year! I've just recently started to invest in more quality skincare products, and am amazed at the difference it makes for my skin. With the house being so dry for 5 months + of the year, these products have been lifesavers for me this past winter! winter skincare essentials – Bioderma

First up is Bioderma's Micelle Solution. This ultra light solution is what I use every evening before bed to wash away my makeup makeup with ease. It's a quick and easy way for me to wash my face quickly and get to bed to get some shut eye.

Natural soaps made with ingredients such as shea butter, coconut and almond oil have helped me save on moisturizers this year. These lovely soaps cost a bit more than the name brands you find in the grocery store, but for me are worth every penny. They help moisturize my skin while in the shower, and it saves me from applying moisturizer as often as I used to. These lovely soaps are by the fabulous Canadian skincare company Matter company. I cannot say enough about their products, all natural and so easy on mine and my kids sensitive skin.

This is hands down (haha!) the best hand cream I have ever used. This hand cream by Avène goes on so easily and is not greasy at all! It has a lovely soft scent, and works like a charm for clearing up my dry skin on my hands. This is my go-to hand repair product, and I recommend it to everyone!

Last but not least is this amazing lipgloss. It is a cult favourite that I heard about through the fabulous Joanna Goddard. Since I started using Smith's Rosebud Salve, I have gotten so many compliments on the colour of my lips (all natural baby, no colour added to this gloss), it just makes my lips look and feel super moisturized and soft. It has a lovely rosebud scent, which I just adore. Definitely pick this one up, it is the only lipgloss you will ever need. Plus, the packaging is super cute.

I hope you enjoyed this little roundup of my favourite skincare products for the winter! Hopefully you'll find a new product that you'll work into your daily beauty routine, or as you prepare for your upcoming wedding! What are your favourite skincare products? Anything I haven't mentioned above that I should try? I would love to hear, leave me a comment below!
