• A few months ago I had the pleasure of visiting the cutest little store in the heart of The Hydrostone Market in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Upon entering Earth Goddess, instantly I found my senses stimulated and curiosity stirred. A plethora of handcrafted goods and beautiful artisanal jewelry glimmered against the backdrop of the store’s calming minimalist aesthetic, and store owners Sandy McInnis and Shannon MacGregor greeted me with smiles and warmth that immediately made me feel at home.

Unfortunately for me the way I feel when my alarm goes off in the morning is a far cry from that (snooze button, anyone?).  The fastest way to pick me up? Under eye concealer, bronzed cheeks, and bright lips! That combination in my opinion is the quickest way to make..
