Here's my little haul from #esthetiquespainternational2017 at the #palaiscongresmontreal . If I was starting out I would've bought some machines too there were some great deals 😮! I bought 2 matching sparkly headbands for my daughter and I 😄. 2 bags of loose leaf tea. 1 Apple, cinnamon and roasted almond tea. And 1 Roiboos, orange and chamomile tea. Which are both very nice 😊. The ADECO Oriental Treasures set which has, a bar laurel leaf & olive oil soap, a bottle of argan oil and 2 hand towels. A set of great makeup brushes, a cuticle nipper and pusher. From @cndworld I bought Silver Chrome, Ruby Ritz and Locket of Love Shellacs, a Vinylux top coat and a CND manicure set.
What I was most excited about was the @foreo Luna 2, this cleansing device is rechargeable, waterproof, doesn't require replacement brush heads and is antibacterial. I've only been using it about a week and it is very effective, especially when I wear makeup, my skin is already smoother and firmer! I want the @mynuface Trinity next. 😄 #ottawa#myottawa#ottcity#ottlife#ottawalife#ottawalifestyle#orleansottawa#rockcliffeottawa#estheticspainternational#imnotaspenderimaninvestor
What I ate Wednesday!
A great breakfast or lunch option:
Garden grown tomatoes, cucumbers, cottage cheese, with farm fresh eggs and sausages.
Look at that full plate - eating healthy should not mean going hungry!
NEW 🍁Fall Equinox🍁 Slow Flow yoga class on my YouTube channel! Happening this Friday, this is a time to turn inward, slow down and take a look back at the year you've had.
Fall is my favorite time of the year and I think it's so important to honor the changing of the seasons and the cyclical nature of life. This flow will use balance poses (to help you find inner balance), forward folds (to let go of disappointment) and hip openers (to open to possibilities).
I think it's one of the best classes I've ever done and I'm so excited for you to try it! 💻 The link is in my bio 👆 and make sure you subscribe while you're there 🙏
Happy New Moon (tomorrow) and Fall equinox (friday) yogis! If you want to honor the new moon, come join my 🌒Lunar Yoga🌘 program at 👉 bit.ly/lunaryoga
This and more of his pieces are at the spa 😀. #ottawa#myottawa#ottcity#ottlife#ottawalife#ottawalifestyle#orleansottawa#rockcliffeottawa

Meet #alexeyklokov new project - DEMYSTIFYING ARTWORK AND EXPLORING THE IMAGES WITHIN:
Embracement. Enamel on linen, 2016
Embracing the life that she carries inside herself with her own two hands symbolizes a powerful representation of four female archetypes that many women would like to be in touch with. First, the Queen as a wise leader embraces and navigates the empire, a nation, a clan, or her own family being responsible for the safety and well being. Second, the Mother (Creator) is a life giver who maintains one single life or humanity and as the warrior defends her space for material existence. Third, the Wise Woman keeps the unseen. She is like the prophetess, mediator and communicator of secret knowledge that looks inward into the mysteries of being and realities of the female body. Finally, the Lover embraces the world with passion and hedonism enriching rigid order and sterile knowledge with Eros. The light colours in the painting symbolize the constructive dimension of these archetypes #abstractart#feminine#womanpower#contemporaryart
"We can always choose to perceive things differently. You can focus on what's wrong in your life, or you can focus on what's right." 🌁 I captured this moment earlier today. I was listening to a podcast on overcoming daily distractions that get in the way of fulfilling our true purpose. I took this view as a sign. A sign to ✋ and appreciate everything around me. Life is very good right now. In the past, that's lead me to get nervous—what could be coming? (Crazy, right?). Now, I'm working to find joy everyday. Being thankful for the people in my life, the things I get to do, and the place I get to call my home. ✨ Pictured here, Parliament Hill is hiding behind that patch of fog rolling over the Ottawa River. That's the Supreme Court of Canada on the right. This is where I run. 🇨🇦 #run
If you want to get good at something do it often, do it when you're tired, do it when you don't feel like it, do it when the circumstances aren't ideal.
The same applies to health and fitness. Be consistent, work at it often - even when you don't feel like it. The results will come.
If it costs you your peace, it's too expensive. 🙏 My current life motto.. Not every shiny opportunity is worth taking... Chase your dreams but not at the expense of your inner peace!
Happy Sunday yogis ❤
Dress rehearsal this morning with my last looooong run before @chimarathon. 35K @ 5:12 with a slight progression. 🏃♀️ I read, had my Smooth Caffeinator @pickybars and ☕️ from 6:00-7:00 am. Out the door by 7:35 am (that's when Coral D-Wave 1 will begin on October 8). Tried out my race day @hokaoneone Clifton 3s (my go-to shoe) and the @lululemon top and shorts that I feel most comfortable in (hello, minimal chaffing). Felt strong, happy and above all, grateful. This has been one heck of a training cycle. Chicago, I can not wait to party for FORTY TWO POINT FREAKIN TWO kilometres with you. ❤️🙏🏃♀️ #idofortytwopointtwo
