As we come to year end, I have been reflecting on all the new relationships, friendships and prospects I have gained. I also wanted to show my sincerest appreciation to the fabulous ladies and gents who support me and CLOUD14+. This year in May I launched my blog and have been completely humbled by the amount of positive feedback and opportunities I have been blessed with. I wanted to end this year with a recap of my absolute favourite local (Toronto Based) business. These business owners have been generous enough to also offer exclusive discounts to CLOUD14+ readers for the month of January 2015.
I have also included some of my favourite beauty products that I find sensational and absolutely worth the splurge. I love starting the new year off with the best beauty products to feel like the best version of myself. I wouldn’t consider myself a beauty guru but I would say I’m quite experimental with products and I’m excited to share my fav’s below.

This summer while attending one of Revolucion Boutique’s Pop Up Shops, I met the beautiful Felicia, owner of Citchen Candle Co. These AMAZING handcrafted candles are made with 100% pure soy wax and essential oil based scents. Soy lasts longer than the average candle and omits no harmful chemicals. Citchen Candle Co. 12oz candles will last anywhere between 75- 100 hrs making them very affordable. All of the candles come in jars and containers that are re-usable. This product is luxurious but also Eco friendly. Citchen Candle Co. is offering CLOUD14+ Readers 2 for $24 CAD with Free Toronto Delivery! This is a total steal considering that it’s approx. 200 hrs of pure bliss. Check out and order through Citchen Candle Co. Etsy Shop or email Felicia for retail or wholesale inquiries.

Make- Up Fav’s for 2014:
My 2 Favorite MAC Cosmetic products are MAC Studio Fix and MAC Mineralize Charged Water Skin Hydrating Mist. This product is LIFE!! If you are going to splurge on any MAC product, this must be it. I use the Charged Water as a primer (pre moisturizer) a makeup setting spray and a skin refresher mid-day. Your makeup will be set for day or night.
MAC Studio Fix I purchased in a light shade (C2) in order to create a very light highlight under the eye. Like most ladies in their 30’s and up, dark circles become very problematic so this trick was recommended and so far I love it.
My favorite foundation of 2014 is an oldie but a goodie, Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place Makeup. For ladies who like a full coverage that lasts all day, this product is for you. I must add that it is a tad drying so ensure a good moisturizer is used prior to application. I use my trusty Beauty Blender for a flawless finish.
Last but not least, my top pick for concealer is CLARINS Paris Instant Concealer. Again, paired with the MAC Studio Fix, this combo creates a bright under eye appearance.
Hope you all enjoyed by Fav’s Round Up and support local business by taking advantage of these exclusive offers!
Happy New Year!!!
