Every week, in our Sunday Scoop newsletter, we share fun and interesting things that catch our eye. Because that’s what women do, right? We see cool stuff, we try to cool stuff, we get all pumped about cool stuff, and then we tell our friends.
The problem is, we’ve got so many faves, that it’s almost hard to pick. Almost. OK, not at all. We’ve already shared how much we love these products, and these and these, too. And our recommendations just keep coming.
Today, we’ve got some of our favourite ways to do some of our favourite things. Read, add, share.


We recently had a birthday and Sunday Scoop- Favourite Thingswhat’s a party without presents? Taking that one step further, what are presents if you can’t share them? Editor Mara proudly turned 47 recently, and she’s doing the amazing: donating $600 worth of her prezzies to you!
Oh yes, we are celebrating by making the party last and last, Brazen-style, until the end of September. So head on over to the party post, where Mara showcases her favourite things and invites you to WIN them all month long. No gimmicks. Just giveaways like you’ve never seen ’em. Oh, and don’t forget to bring a friend to the party. The more the merrier.
Sunday Scoop- Favourite ThingsRemember those days of entering a library and feeling the excitement of shelves of books waiting to be discovered? There was nothing like carrying your own stack home and devouring them one by one.
These days, bookstores have that same exciting cache. Just step inside Chapters/Indigo and you know it’s going to be hours before you’re out. Lost in books is one of our number one ways to wile away the afternoon.
Indigo’s assortment of books, magazines, stationery and gorgeous lifestyle accessories will ignite your intellect and your appetite all at once. Before you know it, you’ll be standing or sitting, maybe even with a coffee in hand, lost inside the pages—no rescue in sight. Not that you’ll want one.
Sunday Scoop- Favourite ThingsNo matter the weather, there’s this little problem we women have got, and it’s called dry skin. Relief is in finding a moisturizer that does its job, soaks in fast, and smells great too. If you’re going to cream it on from head to toe, check out OGX Nourishing Coconut Milk Hibiscus Lotion. This easy, breezy skin cream literally glides right on. Plus, it’s got just the right consistency—not too thick or too thin, so you don’t have to rub and there’s no greasy residue. The PCA complex draws moisture in and keeps it there. And people will point out the best part: You smell awesome. Pro Tip: The entire OGX range is great. The Kukui curl cream works to hydrate and style, and we’re giving a shout-out to the shampoos as well. All are more than worth the price. At Shoppers Drug Mart and Walmart, $9.99
Sunday Scoop- Favourite ThingsLet’s face it. The only thing worse than a bad day is a bad day with a headache. And when it lasts, life is agony.
Our saviour? Saje Natural Wellness Peppermint Halo Headache Remedy. Known as the four minute miracle, this essential oil rolls on easily, warming and cooling at the same time, helping with the pain and pounding while relieving tension and balancing nerves. Peppermint Halo is a combination of nurturing Peppermint, camphorous Eucalyptus and soothing Lavender, and it really does feel like a miracle as soon as it hits your skin. It’s portable and convenient, so keep one by the bed, in your car, and in your purse, too. In no time, you’ll find yourself lost without it. $26.95 at Saje Natural Wellness instore and online.
