Advice, tricks, inspiration, reviews, and more on all things beauty. 

Better Together.

Lauren Ernst

In our busy BUSY world where work, families and our passion often compete for our precious time, it can be difficult to find balance. When you find women who are living THEIR best life and collaborating with others to strengthen their message, vision and impact, it's inspiring. 

This morning, while I was making my second coffee of the day, I spotted THIS. 
A beautiful article featuring Jennifer Freitas of The Truth Beauty Company (TBC) and Estée Lalonde, Canadian born, London-based vlogger. On June 20th, Jennifer and Estée joined forces for the first TBC "Be a Boss Babe" session at Jennifer's Waterloo location. Together, with 40 inspired attendees, Jennifer and Estée dove into how they created their successful brands and how one can begin to establish and showcase their own. Gone are the days where creating your own job or your own business are one-size-fits-all. Instead, businesses are multi-faceted and can present themselves as having "so many jobs within one job", Estée says.

Whether you are creating your own business, establishing your own brand or working on manifesting both in tandem, the work is never done. There is always more you can do.
It's hard. Really hard. 

What helps to inspire others?
Move the needle? 
Create space where we can feel inspired and act on our inspirations? 
SUPPORT. 

The support of one another and the support of each other is monumental. 
We are strong, but goodness. We are stronger together. 

The second I read Ramona Leitao's "Defining 'Boss Babe' with Estée Lalonde (that was literally displayed face-up in the kitchen at work) I felt motivated. 
Motivated to share the article. 
Motivated to call attention to two women MAKING WAVES. 
Motivated to speak of the importance of supporting those in our community who are making their dreams a reality. 

Thank you to Ramona, Jennifer and Estée for all they have done and continue to do in this space. They are always looking to evolve and develop while leaning on their support systems to strengthen their message. Let's continue to be there for them and people like them. 

Happy Wednesday. xo

Hi Gorgeous!

Hope you're having a wonderful Summer and staying COOL. 
If there is one thing I love more than the warm temperatures and gorgeous weather, it's partnering with incredible local beauty businesses to spotlight treatments that might bring YOU and your SKIN a new level or stunning. 

Collagen induction therapy, also known as microneedling, is a cosmetic procedure that involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile needles to help stimulate collagen production, increase blood flow and reveal fresh, new skin.

On June 28th, I had the incredible opportunity to work with Marci from Uptown Beauty Lounge to have this incredible procedure done. As you can see from the photos below, Uptown Beauty Lounge is gorgeous. Talk about the perfect mix between modern, cozy and welcoming when it comes to a spa. Here, you can have a sip of wine while have your hair done, a pedicure, or a facial. Bliss. 

Immediately, I was welcomed and taken to my treatment room where Marci applied numbing cream to my face. This would ensure that the treatment would not offer any level of discomfort. After all, sterile one-use needles are used in the treatment. After 30 minutes of relaxing in my aromatherapy room, with music and dimmed lighting, Marci joined me again to begin the procedure. All told, the treatment itself took 20 minutes - with very little discomfort. It was during this time that Marci did a targeted treatment on my areas of concern (line lines on my forehead, around my eyes and breakout scaring on my chin and cheeks), and explained the entire procedure as she went. Very comfortable and very informative. With every swipe of her microneedling wand, she applied a high potent serum to my skin which helped to plump and hydrate as she went. 

After the procedure itself, came the BEST part. A face mask.
This sheet mask not only treated the skin but ensured that the most powerful and effective ingredients had the chance to penetrate my freshly treated. Cooling, hydrating and relaxing. The best combination. For this part, Marci left the room and allowed me to kick back, relax and enjoy the relaxation. My skin felt incredible and plump. 

Once the mask was off and the treatment was complete, I saw a difference in my skin instantly. My skin was fresh, plump and very hydrated. Incredibly red and sensitive to the heat and sun but my goodness - SO rejuvenated. Days after, the benefits continued to show. Skin appeared more hydrated and fresh. Really neat to watch. Of course, I was sent him with impeccable after care and heaps of great information . and protocol to follow. Marci and her team are incredibly thoughtful and thorough when it comes to all of their treatments and procedures - no matter how casual or intense. 

Would I recommend this treatment to someone looking to refresh and give their skin a boost? Absolutely. Better yet, Marci encourages that a bit of a treatment plan that consists of having a microneedling facial done every 6-8 months. After experiencing one, I can definitely appreciate why. Never have I felt my skin feel more firm and hydrated, all at the same time. Looking to have it done? Uptown Beauty Lounge always has incredible promotions in effect. Check them out!

Looking for a funky way to give your skin a boost, without injectables? This is it. 
Have a blast, beauty and tell Marci and team that BlaireBeauty sent you

Happy #BrightLipThursday, Gorgeous!

One of the BEST things about the beauty industry is how small the world is. 
Through the power of makeup, I am able to connect with men and women across the globe who love all things self care. 

Be it natural or not so natural beauty, I have been fortunate to collaborate with many incredible entrepreneurs and test heaps of incredible products. One of my fav things to put to the test is mascara. It is a staple in my everyday makeup routine and helps to tie together my go-to clean bronzed skin and bold lip. 

Thanks to a recent reconnection with the powerful Amy Willis, I had the chance to test Arbonne's "It's a Long Story" mascara. This clinically tested, water resistant formulation lengthens lashes beautifully and leverages a funky plastic wand to lift lashes UP, UP and AWAY. Nicest thing about this little gem is that the ingredients within the product help treat and condition lashes while you rock the product. Check out the product specs, here

Looking to get your hands on your very own tube? 
Check out Amy's page with heaps of fantastic information about this and many other clean beauty products. She's a babe and is always willing to help. 

As always, would love to hear your feedback!
