Schnuck Didit Designs, for face, body and bath.

Another amazing product in my “hotbed” of talent from Vancouver, BC, the place I call home.

Mark and Andy of Schnuck Didit Designs are another of the underdogs that deserve a plate at the table and that I truly love! “Producing top quality, Canadian Made artisan soaps and grooming products”, this husband and husband team also make men’s underwear and bathing trunks, that not only look great, but fit like a glove for men of all shapes and sizes.

With the name Schnuck Didit, why wouldn’t I give it a try! A nickname I am told is for one of the guys, a name that aptly fits for their designs, did it, they did!

I’ve been buying their soaps for a number of years now, after trying the minimally scented bars as a way to support the local hard working businesses I love to spend my dollars with.

““They strive to use “Made in Canada” whenever possible and focus on natural ingredients. This is an important consideration for everything they create. Their products are made in small batches from 100% natural ingredients and pure essential oils, without any of the laurel sulphates, dyes or perfumes. Their scents are unique and refreshing combinations that are masculine and never floral or overpowering.””

They make Bath Bombs, Face Scrubs, Massage Gels, Massage Oils, Toners, Reed Diffusers, Votive Candles, and Icy Muscle Rubs

Since both of these guys have long luxurious beards, and trust me I know, I’ve had my hands in those beards, it seemed only fitting that they would make a few conditioners for those facial locks. Beard Oils and Beard Butters, light and not to heavy, but certainly conditioning and controlling. Complimentary scents like, Birch Lime, Coffee Vanilla, Cypress, products they’ve also made available at the Burly Barber Inc

Currently their fabric of choice of their underwear is a soft luxurious flannel, while soft on the goods, fitted at the legs but not too tight and a forgiving waistband that is structured to stay in place without drooping or dropping. Their swim trunks made with a blend of lycra spandex fit the way a good men’s bathing should, by holding everything in place, without sagging, and repel excess moisture when out of the water. Of course I love them, why wouldn’t I, they are sexy and cute, and we all know I love my men to look sexy and cute in great fitting swim trunks that aren’t to the knees!

In my own personal shopping habits I usually buy 5 bars at a time that last me at least 6 months. A little trick I learned to lengthen the life span of a new bar of soap is to dry it out for a week or so before use and sit it on a ridged soap dish so it doesn’t rest in the soapy run off. Of course these bars don’t do that anyway, and prices won’t break the bank.

Yes their products are made with care, and ingredients include;

Coconut oil, Palm oil (ethically sourced) Cocoa butter, Sweet Almond oil, Avocado oil, grape seed oil, Hempseed oil, Sunflower oil, Essential oils, and cosmetic grade pigments.

They make good $# *!

His and Her Pedicure for Sexy This Week

sexy-this-week-63-his-and-her-pedicures-1

There’s fun to be had in his and her pedicures. Couples spending time together, enjoying each other’s company, sharing a laugh, or an uncontrolled giggle from a foot massage, and the application of a daring shade of polish on his, and her toes. His and her pedicures that’s what sexy this week.

In today’s age, the so called “modern age” women have been getting pedicures since most of us can remember. However it is noted that it wasn’t until the year 2000 that the pedicure started to grow in popularity. Mostly amongst the women and a few daring men, brave enough to roll up their trousers and show just how much of a man he truly is by letting a complete stranger get to work prettying up those feet and toes.

PRODUCT UPDATE!!

I don’t have any before and after pics to share after using Filorga Paris NCTF-Intensifs Anti Aging Skin Care so you’ll have to take my word for it.  I can honestly say that having used only the NCTF-Intensive for the last 2 weeks has actually left my skin feeling more taught, firm, and with better elasticity with fewer fines lines. I received the trio samples today and look forward to using all three in conjunction with the recommendations made by the technicians that first shared and showed us the product those weeks ago. In the meantime I’ve reposted the details below for you to read and learn about what Filorga NCTF is all about. I’ll update as the weeks progress with how my skin feels and looks. 

For those wishing to give it a try or switch your routine and product regimen, the Filorga Paris NCTF-Intensifs Anti Aging Skin Care will be available February 14/2018 at Shoppers Drug Mart, and Nordstroms.UPDATE_Filorga_Paris_NCTF-Intensifs_Anti_Aging_Skin_Care_trio

REPOST:

My recent attendance of the informational evening on the soon to be made available product from Filorga Paris. The introduction of their NCTF Reverse Range which contains more than ten times the concentration of Filorga’s patented NCTF than the other skincare products within Filorga. It’s designed to be the consumer version of their medical product, the concentrated skincare range that contains the same revitalizing formulation found in their professional injectable treatments. Most notably we were shown the NCTF-Essence, NCTF-Intensive, and the NCTF-Reverse. Used on the skin in that order twice daily, morning and night.

The ideology behind the introduction of this line is to bring the medical service of injections home to the consumer in a topical form, and in particular for those not quite sure they are ready for a trip to the surgeon’s office for injections to invigorate and revitalize aging, tired skin.

As a user of home based skin care products, I was eager to hear and see what this product was all about. That’s not to say I haven’t had my fair share of doctor assisted treatments, but I do try and maintain what can at home in between those expensive sessions. For me prevention goes a long way and I’ll do anything I can, within reason, to keep my skin looking youthful, vital, and alive.

Filorga Paris NCTF-Intensifs Anti Aging Skin Care 7We started off by meeting the informative and wonderful people from Filorga who helped develop the product and bring it the consumer. The presentations were clear and well presented and introduced us to the microsphere technology they were using in their product to do the work it does. I asked what I had to ask and my questions were answered with very informative statements, but, we know that actions speak louder than words and I for one was eager to see what the product looked like, and felt like going on the skin.

The NCTF-Essence is geared as primer for the skin to allow for maximum absorption when the next product is applied. It absorbs quite readily and has a scent like a fragrant tea. I rather enjoyed it.

Filorga Paris NCTF-Intensifs Anti Aging Skin Care 2

The next application came from the NCTF-Intensive, a combination of serum and lotion type of liquid that doesn’t run or drip, is scent free, and absorbs right away.

The last application was in the form of the NCTF-Reverse which is considered the daily moisturizer that is active all day. This is the one that is nourishing with nutritious fatty acids and Vitamin E, ideal for dry skin. It delivers on wrinkle treatment with retinol to stimulate collagen and elastin and contains Hyaluronic acid to plump the skin. It provides treatment to the firmness of the skin by stimulating collagen production. Provides radiance with natural Vitamin C which prevents the synthesis of melanin. It has vitamin A & H to stimulate cell renewal and Vitamin E for fight against free radicals.

I’ll start by saying that it was nice to see only 3 products in this application process, because I’ve seen many many more steps to be taken just get the damn cream on! If your a busy person, you know that those extra few minutes make all the difference, and when your layering product after product, it makes a person wonder. I have to say that these three absorbed quickly and didn’t leave my skin feeling greasy, shiny, or as though I wanted to wash it off right away. My skin was breathing!

These products will be making their way to the consumer on February 14th at Nordstrom’s and at Shoppers Drug Mart. I’ll be making sure to give it all a thorough examination when it arrives. They also boast visible results in 7 days, who knows, maybe I’ll be switching products!

Luscious Legwear, That’s What Sexy This Week

sexy_this_week_Luscious_legwear_1

Luscious legwear in the form of stockings, stay-ups, or pantyhose. Legwear that comes in a multitude of colours, patterns, deniers, and sizes to adorn the appendages of women, and the men that dare. The final accessory to an outfit, to enhance, accentuate, cover and adorn, luscious legwear, that’s what sexy this week.

Leggings and legwear have been worn for ages, by the late great kings and queens, to the courtesans of Europe, the Giesha of Japan, and the stylish of today. Originally made of linen, cotton, wool or silk, they were worn for warmth, but as hemlines rose and legs were exposed, so to did demand. It wasn’t until 1939 when DuPont introduced nylon, an affordable, durable, sheer alternative was born. It wasn’t until 1959 that the pantyhose made their debut and rivalled that of stockings, soon to surpass sales as the new alternative.

Rising even higher hemlines made sure pantyhose stayed on top of sales causing a sharp decline in the sales of stockings, where it has remained to this day, sales only rivalled by the advent of stay-ups.

Filorga Paris NCTF-Intensifs Anti Aging Skin Care 1

I’m going to start this review off with a little bit off a RANT!

As Canadian who resides in Canada, North America, I question why products are released after they have already been made available to the masses in other countries? Most notably Europe, then Asia, Australia, and then to us lowly miscreants here in North America. It frustrates me to no end, as if we in this part of the world don’t want the new and improved, or just the plain new! It would be nice to see that change, even if just a little.

FingerNails, Long and Luscious, with Holiday Colours Worth Getting from CND Review

fingernails-long-luscious-cnd-1

My finger nails are something I always have! It’s just one element that goes into being me!

Long luscious fingernails that I feel finish and compliment my hands. Something I know a lot of other women feel the same way, just as they do about their hair. For me its all about the total ook from top to bottom.

Yes I’m high maintenance, but it’s maintenance I look after no one else. I choose it, so I work on it! Starting from my health from the inside out, eat right, trips to the gym, my hair, make-up, clothes and the finer things. 

Again my fingernails are no exception to that rule, and I’ve added them to my schedule of monthly maintenance! It’s a treat I give to myself and I’m very appreciative of that fact, to be able to treat myself to some of these finer things in life I covet. I work hard, and some would say I play hard. Meh!

Alexis G-String for the Wild and Wondrous Side of Wacky Wednesday

wacky-wednesday-alexis-g-string-seducing-spider

  Pasties (singular pasty or pastie) are patches that cover a person’s nipples and areolae which are affixed with adhesive. Though pasties are commonly associated with strippers, burlesque shows and erotic entertainment, they are also at times worn more casually as an undergarment and occasionally as beachwear

Let’s be honest, we all love them! Those little coverings that grace a beautiful breast, to entice, and captivate, while retaining a little “modesty’ for the wearer. Creations adorned with jewels artfully and intricately placed atop, lace, leather, or satin, the perfect accessory for any nipple.

Dramatic Luscious Lip Colours For Fall, That’s What’s Sexy This Week.

Dramatic-Sexy-Lip Colours-for-Fall-ravishing-gloss-red

Lipstick shades come and go, dramatic luscious colours, and throughout the year colour vibrancy changes along with the seasons. In spring time colours lighten up, for the most part summers go nude, and with the fall, colours deepen and intensify. Colour used to make up for the drab of the impending “doom” of the fall and winter seasons. Seasons portrayed as dull and grey and reflected in the fashions of the day, all except the lips. Pouty sexy lips to wear punches of colour through to the returning spring. Dramatic luscious colours in fall, that’s what’s sexy this week.

Beautifully manicured sexy nails, that’s what sexy this week. Many of us remember being told  “don’t bite your nails” which doesn’t stop some folks from gnawing away, while others take great care to file, buff, extend and polish the horn-like envelope that cover the tips of fingers and toes. Beautifully, painstakingly painted, and well cared for to finish off the fingers and toes, beautifully manicured nails, that is what’s sexy this week.

For millennia, well manicured nails have been much coveted, a status symbol of days gone by that have attracted the attention of all sexes. Young or old are drawn to looking at the finishes that adorn the tips. Bright shiny, or matte colours, patterns, nail art and little sculptures, even jewelled adornment now add to the allure of a finished nail.

Hosiery, The Perfect Accessory For All Legs

bare-legs

As the temperature cools with the summer nearing it’s end, and bare legs still fresh in our minds, it’s difficult to muster up the desire to cover up those gams with clothes of some kind. 

stockings-garters

The cuffs and hemlines that rose, now get lower, but an age old solution to that situation that’s not only practical, but down right sexy, is hosiery, the perfect accessory for all legs, that’s what sexy this week.

Choosing to wear stockings, stay-ups, pantyhose or leggings is the decision of the wearer, but maybe, just maybe, I can help convince you to put on a pair with a few descriptives of my own.

Did I say I liked to wear hosiery? Well I do, and I have quite the collection of my own silky smooth soft coverings. I love my stockings held up with a garter belt, but I also love my stay-ups for days when I’m going commando under a skirt or dress. Or try a pair of pantyhose that stretch across a firm ass as the best shapely adornment possible for those that want to caress, but the sign says “don’t touch!”
