Hello friends! Today I’m here to talk to you guys about something very exciting that’s happening THIS WEEKEND! (so start making plans… now!) The Made in Hamilton market is happening on Saturday August 25th at McMaster Innovation Park from 10am-4pm!

I was sent a few products as a preview for what is to come on Saturday!

The first product I received was from Paint it Pretty Polish!

Paint it Pretty Nail Polish This is a gorgeous handmade nail polish, and I’m in LOVE with the colour! It’s a stunning duo-chrome polish that appears a different colour depending on how you see it! The picture does not do it justice, but it reflects purple and green and there’s a little gold in there too!

The formula was so easy to work with, and went on well with just 2 coats! I didn’t use a base coat or a top coat because I was so excited to put it on, and I was able to wear it for three days before seeing and chipping on the polish! I’m so excited to try more products from Paint it Pretty – and you’ll be able to buy some of their products on Saturday at the market! If you’re unable to make it, check out the etsy shop!

Paint it Pretty is not only 5 free, but also cruelty free, vegan friendly, and also made in Canada!


Products two and three came from Spa2Go!

I was lucky enough to receive this HUGE (really, the picture doesn’t do it justice!) body scrub! Just look at that amazing texture – it’s made with all natural products, in particular sea salt and essential oils. The salt scrubs all the dead skin off of your body, while the essential oils moisturize your skin and leave it feeling smooth! I was a little apprehensive at the beginning, because it seemed like it was a little too oily, but once my skin dried, it absorbed all the oils and left it feeling so smooth!

The second product that they sent me is this anti-chafing powder. I’m going to be honest and say that yes, I do get that horrible thigh chafe in the summer. There’s nothing worse than wearing a nice dress or shorts and then being left with a horrible heat chafe.

This is also made with natural ingredients, the most prominent ones being corn starch and essential oils. While I do like this powder, it only works for so long. It’s a good short term solution, but it’s not something that keeps the chafe away all day unfortunately.

My biggest qualm about this product is that I wish it had a sifter, it gets a little bit messy if you’re not careful! Other than that, it’s a great product to keep handy in the summer, and it smells so good you’re going to want to use it year round!

These are two other products that you’ll be able to get on Saturday, or you can check out their website!
