Thoughts: Living in an online world

by Bronte Tagliani


It's likely that we all spend a little more time online that we would like to admit... even despite not having any time for ourselves, we do in fact end up browsing the internet or breezing over our friend's Facebook, Instagram, vine or Pinterest pages more than we let on. 

It's amazing how our world has been invaded by cyberspace, the little ways that we unconsciously end up online, have you ever really counted the minutes? It's so very easy to get "lost" in that little screen. It's like it emits some kind of pulse that attracts our brains and sucks us in... it's not all bad though. I'm a creature of habit, I like to go through my inbox every morning to delete all the mail that I subscribe to but never read. Occasionally there is something that catches my eye, and when that happens it usually leads to at least 20 minutes online. With the constant pinging of messages hitting my inbox, it's not surprising that I lose on average 30 minutes a day if not more. I do however sometimes end up reading a nugget of information in one of the articles that betters my knowledge of the world around me, the real-world. 

So, despite living in an online world where everything is at our fingertips and time is to be lost surfing the net, we do live in real-time, online too.

A few days before Valentine's Day, if you run out of gift ideas or want to ask your boyfriend to offer you something, here are my top 5 picks for lovers!
 
 
For her :
 

If the official Valentine's color is red, then I recommend you try LIPSTICK from PUPA MILANO in the shade Luxurous Red. It's a velvety red that will highlight your lips to seduce your man! $22 Jean Coutu, Familiprix
I also can't ignore the EMBELLISEUR LIPS CLARINS, a true guilty pleasure that I enjoy year after year. A silky texture, moisturizing, smoothing and lightly tinted you can use it alone or in a small dot to shine bright in the center of your lipstick. Additionally, $ 10 of the amount
will be donated to Ste-Justine UHC Foundation from Jean-Coutu and Clarins. So a gift to request or offer for a good cause! $ 20 at Jean Coutu
 
 
FOR HIM :
 
Many men have difficulty with the dryness of their hands. Here is an ultra-moisturizing cream as a gift to the man who makes your heart beat, IDEAL FOR HANDS CARE by CLARINS, is a provitamin B5-based cream, with allantoin and purslane it will relieve undoubtedly the most chapped hands of a man! $24 All Clarins counters and some pharmacies in Canada.
You could alternately offer him the whole manicure set by TWEEZERMAN men, I personally offered my man this for Christmas and he was very happy. The set includes tweezers, nail clippers, scissors and a file designed for him. $ 33.99 Shoppers Drugmart Canada.
 

FOR THE TWO :
 
Here is MY NUMBER 1 for Valentine's Day, this is not a beauty product as I usually suggest, but what says St Valentine's more than chocolate!! Treat yourselves to the melted CHOCOPORTRAIT from CHOCOLAT Favoris in Quebec. For $14.95 in less 24 hours the company puts a photo of the couple in chocolate and will add the desired wishes to put on the box that will be decorated to the print you have selected! Isn't that wonderful? Yes! Then visit CHOCOLATSFAVORIS.COM to create a CHOCOPORTRAIT your own!
 
Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Valérie
