A Word from Our Founder
Spring is an exciting time, when the smell of freshly cut grass can light up a concrete jungle like Toronto. The change of the seasons is an ideal time to switch up your skincare and explore newness in all facets of life. We’re highlighting that delightful sense of discovery with our Living Beauty Guide to London, where our team puts the spotlight on the UK capital. Personally, I can’t wait to go back to Uncle Zorro, a great little spot in Covent Garden with deliciously fresh food and amazing coffee — keep an eye out for the vintage pink car parked out front.
At Living Beauty, we’ve always stood by our philosophy that every client is an individual who has their own customized needs. This issue of the Living Beauty Newsletter is all about cutting through the noise and understanding every part of your body.

It’s also a deeply personal issue for me. In March, I had a rhinoplasty to alleviate lifelong pain and breathing problems. Going under the knife wasn’t an easy decision, as I’ve always been adamant about maintaining my face’s natural character. I finally found the right plastic surgeon — Dr. Mike Roskies, a facial plastic surgeon who practices preservation rhinoplasty at his clinic in Toronto. In my article, he and I get real about the personal and professional aspects of rhinoplasty, including everything I did to prepare for my time in the operating room.
My experience with Dr. Roskies underscores the importance of expert advice in all aspects of beauty and wellness. Invest a bit of time in your skincare routine and you’ll get the results you’re looking for. It took me three years to find a surgeon who understood and valued my sense of individuality. And the wait was definitely worth it.
