New Shampoo and Conditioner – A Must Have!

Screen Shot 2013 07 19 at 2.14.39 PM

I wanted to share a product with you that I am absolutely in LOVE with right now, Rescue Restorative Shampoo and Conditioner by Intelligent Beauty Labs. I consider myself a bit of a shampoo snob. When you have fine, curly hair, you kinda have to be. Right? Right.

As much as I’d love to go to the drugstore and buy any shampoo/conditioner set, I can’t. My delicate hair doesn’t respond well to super harsh and sudsy, paraben and sulfate filled concoctions. When I was introduced to Rescue Restorative Shampoo and Conditioner, I thought, hey, why not give these a try. They are loaded with good stuff like Baobab Oil and Keratin Boosters, and they left out the not so good stuff, like Sulfates, Parabens and other harsh chemicals.

The best part about this shampoo and conditioner is the shine. Yes, that silky, smooth, I just walked out of a hair commercial shine. My hair is literally glistening. In a good way.

Check out my video and check out this product.

Dogs and Me – Season 2 is on its way

Dogs and Me – Season 2 is on its way

A few months ago I was cast in a webseries  called Dogs and Me. I was cast as Megan, Matt’s not -so-shy best gal pal.

Dogs and Me Season 1 has seen a lot of  success, winning awards at numerous comedy and web fests. I just found out, Season 2 has been written and we will be shooting more episodes soon.

I can’t wait to see what Megan is up to this season.

If you missed the fun, check out my Episode – I Heart Megan. And while you’re at it, check out the whole season on YouTube








Canada Day in LA

Canada Day in LA

I am very happy to announce I have joined the board of Canadians Abroad ( recently, and my first event with them was Canada Day in Los Angeles.

It was a very successful event, held at Wokano’s rooftop in Santa Monica. The event welcomed members and non-members, and featured music by Jarvis Church of the Philosopher Kings, and Carmen and Camille. The Canadian Comedy Awards were there interviewing celebrities as they arrived and wire image was there to capture arrivals as well.
