Dull weather? Dull hair? - A simple trick to make you feel fabulous! Plus, a Festive Giveaway!

With the snow starting to fall and the holiday season fast approaching, all the hustle and bustle leaves us very little time for ourselves. Time-saving tips can be our saviour and products like Batiste™ Dry Shampoo might become your new best friend. 

Not having to wash your hair everyday can be a blessing, plus great looking hair is sure to make you feel good! Batiste™ has a range of products to fit all your beauty needs, from giving hair extra volume to making hair feel clean and fresh. Batiste™ Dry Shampoo gives oily, dull, lifeless hair the makeover it deserves! Getting out the door quickly has never been this easy.

When using Batiste™ this season, remember these quick tips:

Start with the oiliest part of your hair - the root. Vigorously shake the can of dry shampoo and hold it 30 cm away from your hair, spraying a light mist.
After spraying the dry shampoo wait one minute, rub with finger tips, and comb through with a natural bristle brush. This will help to distribute product from root to tip, ensuring all the oil in the hair is absorbed.

So, sleep in a little longer... savour that morning coffee and let Batiste™ Dry Shampoo bring some “me time” back into your life.

No Mixer Required Banana Bread #cabinlife

I have a very nice Kitchen Aid mixer at home. But when I go to the cabin, I am at the whim of a whisk, a fork, or a spoon. So, needless to say not every recipe works well.

After playing with some known ingredients, I came up with this recipe.

No Mixer Required Banana Bread

2/3 very ripe bananas
1 large egg
1/3 cup melted butter
1/2 cup of sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
dash of salt
1 1/2 cup flour

That's it!

Step 1: Mash the ripe banana, then mix in the melted butter, vanilla, egg and sugar.

Step 2: Add the baking soda and salt to the flour.

Step 3: Slowly mix the flour into the wet mixture.

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Grease a 4 x 8 loaf pan.

Bake for 1 hour.

Five minutes from bowl to pan!

Sunshine Village Resort #BNP - Opening Weekend with @Normurai #LifeisRad

This is where I'll be heading on Saturday...

Sunshine Village in Banff National Park.

Beebo & Xman will not be joining me this Saturday... partly because it is still early in the season and may be rockier than normal, but also because I'll be Periscoping the powdery beauty of #mountainlife with Normurai!
