'Be Better' with Rexall - Part 2 - #AirMiles

Testing out Rexall's 'Be Better' line has been lots of fun. I can't get over how good everything smells! Some with argan oil, others with coconut and shea butter --- basically yummy! If I'm going to have to wash my hands all the time, I might as well enjoy the scent infused into the room, right?

Here are my final two favourite 'Be Better' products for #Winterhealth !

Miss part one? Click Here.

Product #3 - Be Better Argan Oil Hand Soap:
A nourishing and moisturizing argan oil hand soap, with aloe vera and shea butter to soothe and protect hands. Hand-washing is especially important this time of year (cough *flu season*), so I need something to combat the Alberta dryness and well, like I said, it smells great too.

Product #4 - Be Better Pure Argan Oil Moisturizer:
This organic argan oil moisturizer is a light oil that serves to soothe and protect skin, hair, nails and cuticles. Rich in Vitamins A and E, as well as omega fatty acids and natural antioxidants, this luxurious oil is 100% natural. I love the versatility of this product! It has many uses and I'll admit to not wanting too many products in my purse.

Head to Rexall for all your #winterhealth needs and collect Air Miles while you're at it! We need to survive winter, but there is no reason why we can't dream of sunnier places and the day our reward miles will take us there.

(That's ME in the video^^)

Stay healthy!

'Be Better' with Rexall - Part 1 - #AirMiles

This past month, I've been focussing on 'Winter' health and ways to stay healthy. Rexall was kind enough to send me a few products from their 'Be Better' line and I have been busy testing them out!

Obviously, we need water and sunscreen as part of our winter regimen, but some of us may need a few other helpers along the way. We can choose to have a flu shot, some may choose to venture the herbal route and some of us, may have to moisturize ourselves silly!

Whichever winter plan of action you take, Rexalls 'Be Better' line is there to give you a boost!

I have chosen 4 products that I THINK you cannot do without this winter. We'll start with the first two...

Product #1 - Be Better Oregano Oil Capsules: 
Oregano Oil is a great way to give your immune system a boost! It is a potent herbal antimicrobial that effectively tackles bacteria, yeast, fungal and parasitic infections. It is more commonly used to relieve various respiratory illnesses, but is also a good daily preventative. The capsule format allows you take the oregano oil without smelling like a fresh pizza, but it also comes in a liquid format as well (for those of us who like to gargle it).

Product #2 - Be Better Argan Oil Balm:
Not only does this product smell divine, but it is my FAVOURITE multi-use item! It is also 100% natural and has over 21 uses! (But who's counting?) The argan oil is in a base of coconut oil, shea butter and evening primrose oil, lending for added moisturizing super powers.  This GO-TO purse item is good for your nails, dry hands, elbows, lips and even, to tame fly away hairs!!

I'll be back with my other two favourite Rexall 'Be Better' products for winter health on Friday... so stay tuned! 

Now that Air Miles has partnered with Rexall in Western Canada, I can buy all my favourite products and receive Air Miles too! (And then I can fly away somewhere warm! *tee hee)

Where would you go with all your Rexall earned Air Miles?

The Ultimate Holiday Movie #StreamInto2015 - #Giveaway

We asked you, the readers, what shows and movies you like to watch at Christmas time?  

We all agreed that Charlie Brown and his little tree locked our hearts, and the Griswolds unique spin on Christmas was also too good to pass up. Over and over again. 

Home Alone was remembered, because crooks suck and ELF also makes us gleam 'Rockefellar' notes.

But, we were all mesmorized by the leg lamp, right?

The Christmas Story certainly challenged our crassness levels, but was very real to life -- almost too real life. Then, streaming one up'd things this year, with the addition of White Christmas. Yes, they did that.

Our Christmas season movie winner was 'White Christmas'! You have no idea how much this excites me! (Sisters... sisters...)

Get enjoying your holiday season with this #GIVEAWAY from Staples Canada -

Follow the rules of the Rafflecopter below. 
Winner must be a Canadian resident over the age of 18.

Giveaway ends December 9th, 2014 at 12:01am M.S.T.

Top 3 Tips for Winter Health & A New Western Canada Partnership! #Giveaway

We can deny it all we want, but the fact is... winter is here to stay. Protecting our skin and lips from the elements is just as important as staying healthy to fight off cold and flu, and Rexall has everything you and your family need to keep healthy this winter -- all while earning Air Miles -- a new partner in Western Canada.

Top 3 Tips for Winter Health:

1. Water - 

The importance of water cannot be stressed enough. In fact, most of us are terrible at getting our daily ounces in (including me). Drinking water will not only work from the inside out to moisturize skin, hair and nails, but it will also help you process and ward off flu and cold. 

If you are having trouble drinking enough water, there are a few things you can do to make it easier. Carrying a reusable water bottle with you at all times will lend you access to water when you need it. If you are the type who doesn't like the way water tastes, adding lemon, lime, cucumber, mint or berries will infuse your water with refreshing tastes for more enjoyment. (My favourite is adding frozen berries or grapes!) 

Finally, most of us carry a cell phone these days, so if drinking water is something you struggle with remembering, there are many free apps that allow you to log your water intake. Going through this process is valuable, as you'll notice how easy it is to go through a whole day without drinking enough.

2. Sunscreen - 

Cold temperatures often give us a false sense of not needing sunscreen; however, many -20c days in Alberta are accompanied by endless blue sky and glorious sunshine (the lack of ceiling keeps temps extra cold). Winter play in the snow is an easy way to obtain a sunburn, so don't get caught slipping off your goggles at the end of day skiing to find you forgot something. Whoops!

3. Preventative -

Handwashing - Lather up with soap and water for 30 seconds, then rinse.

Vitamins - Taking a multivitamin, Vitamin C or Vitamin D can help you maintain a proper level in your system for good immunity.

Herbal Remedies - Products like Oil of Oregano (in capsule or liquid format) can help boost your immune system naturally, while Cold FX is a ginseng-based herbal remedy that cuts the frequency of illness, the duration and the severity. *Purchase Cold FX at Rexall until Nov. 27th for 30% off and 30 Airmiles*

Flu Shot - The flu shot can be obtained at most pharmacies across Canada, to those over the age of 9. If you have young kids, a nasal flu shot can be obtained at your public health office. Plus, if you head to Rexall for your flu shot, they'll donate a shot to a person in need in Northern Uganda with their 'shot for shot' program.


To celebrate this new Western Canada partnership, Rexall and Air Miles have graciously offered up an awesome 'Winter Health Kit' to one lucky reader of!  (Giveaway items may differ slightly from photo.)
