KQC Beauty – Hair Straightener/Curling Iron Review

KQC Beauty Products are professional grade, top quality and efficient. They are ceramic and have been featured in so many magazines.  Sold in Canada and mostly at independently run salons, they have a wide variety of styling products to suit many different needs and style outcomes.

I’ve been lucky enough to try the X-Heat Original Ceramic Straightener and the imatic Automatic Curling Iron (also ceramic)

Guess what? You can win both items! SO AWESOME, achieve those GORGEOUS curls or pin straight hair with ease!photo-on-2017-11-02-at-1-29-pm-4.jpg

Libre Tea Glass Infuser

I’ll gladly admit that I am one of those people who loves Tea.

Seriously, I bring it with me when we go on car trips and I never forget my insulated cup (no matter WHERE we go).

I’m very excited to talk about the incredible product from a Canadian Company: Libre Tea

It’s great for hot and cold teas, as well as fruits and herbs! Endless options. There’s a stainless steel mesh filter so when you drink, no leaves or particles come in contact with your mouth. It’s got a durable poly exterior and the interior is high temperature glass! I love that it’s not glass on the outside but you still get a very durable product with a clean-drinking feel. 100% BPA free! Hand wash only.


The Lively Leaves design is sleek, green and has a gorgeous motif! The size is 14.3 ounces / 420 millilitres.
