Happy New Year 2018!

I’m not a big fan of New Year’s resolutions, believing that if you want to change or achieve something, there’s no time like the present. There’s never a bad time to implement positive new habits so why wait till the new year – do it now!

Having said that though, many of us do place a lot of emphasis on changing things up in a new year and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The past week has allowed for some down time and moments for reflection into what’s important in life and what makes me happy. This light article – 9 Ways to Be a Better Person in 2018 from the New York Times put a smile on my face and seems fitting to share as we dive into 2018.

Here are three tips that really resonated with me:

  1. Make Your Bed. I’m not a bed maker most days, (secret’s out) but I’m going to give this one a try. It really does take less than a minute. Who knows what it may lead to?
  2. Accept the Things you Cannot Control. As a bonafide Type A personality, this one is going to be a bit of a challenge. I’ve already been working on it, but it’s a tough one for me.
  3. If You Suffer a Setback, Just Keep Going — and Going Out. As an entrepreneur and small business owner, I’ve had no shortage of setbacks. How true this tip is – I’ve learned that how you react to inevitable adversity is more important than the adversity itself.

What about you? Do you kick off a new year with resolutions?

Bespoke Vitamin C Serum

I love it! Been using it for years. It’s so perfect to put on right after I wash in the morning. I’ve never been the greatest at sticking to a skin care routine but using the Vitamin C in the morning and A is for Anti-aging at night consistently over the years has kept my skin young and firm.
Would not want to imagine life (or my skin) without these two essentials. Thank you Sharmani!

Pricing per bottle is definitely up there, but I think much like skincare, if you have struggled to find a deodorant that works for you, the price won't be as much of an issue because something like this can have a huge impact on your life. One bottle should last about 3-4 months with daily use which I think is fairly close to most deodorants. While I know there are baking soda-free options (baking soda can cause skin irritations due to pH disruptions) and options that use Deoplex, I have yet to find a combination of Deoplex and lactic acid which may be what's working for me. Honestly, the only thing I didn't enjoy was that "wet" feeling when I would first apply it, but after 15 seconds it dries down AND it doesn't stain clothing so that's a huge plus. Even though I received this as a press sample, I would buy this deodorant on my own as I didn't just smell good at the end of a long day, but I smelled like absolutely NOTHING which is WAY better to me than smelling like "I'm covering something up" or like body odour. I also trust and appreciate the research I know Apothekari has invested into making sure the formulation is scientifically sound so I know that's also partly where my dollars are going. I only need to apply once a day and I'm good to go so one bottle might even last more more than 4 months at the rate I'm going! HIGHLY recommend and even though all three scents had the same results, my preferred scent was the Lavender as it just one of my favourite scents overall!

Your deodorant is actually miraculous! I’ve tried every kind of deodorant before with varying degrees of mediocre success. Yours manages to actually work through Barre fitness classes and in my office otherwise called the boiler room!! I will definitely be buying more.

I love, love, love Apothekari deodorant! I am allergic to anti-perspirants. I have spent years trying to find a product that works, especially in the hot climate here in Arizona. This deodorant not only works, but keeps me fresh and odor free for over 24 hours! The grapefruit ginger fragrance is lovely and subtle. Thank you, thank you!

I am absolutely IN LOVE with Apothekari! A is for Anti-Aging Retinol Serum has changed my skin. I suffered from adult acne and I have not had a single pimple since I started using this Ah-mazing serum. Not to mention how firm and bright my skin is. And Made in Canada! It’s the whole package!
