This post is in partnership with Hard Candy. As always, all opinions are personal. Thank you for support my efforts to bring you exciting, new content. 

The holidays are simply the best! The best time for everything – baking, getting dressed-up, throwing and attending parties. It’s just all so much fun! During this time, I switch gears and am in full festive-mode, and I am sure I am not the only one. Right now, I am smack in the middle of cookie baking, party planning, gift shopping and present wrapping! Honestly, I couldn’t be happier, but festive new makeup and beauty products from one of my favourite trendy brands certainly makes the occasion all the better. Which is why when I received a few of Hard Candy’s new holiday kits I was overjoyed. This is a brand I’m already sweet for; their trendy colours, how playful their products are, and their fantastic price points make them a go-to for present ideas and creating a festive holiday look for attending or hosting a Christmas party!

Budget-Friendly Holiday Beauty Gifts They’ll Love

The My Bag Of Tricks Holiday Kit ($24.97 CAD)has a little bit of everything (and it’s all perfect for this season). It’s a fantastic cosmetic set you can certainly use anytime during the season or as a gift to the makeup lover in your life. The set comes with a 24 eyeshadow compact, mini baked bronzer, mini baked highlighter, mini eye primer, full-size matte lip colour, full-size volumizing lip gloss, mini makeup setting spray, mini skin perfecting primer, and it all fits into a cute cosmetic case! This is an all-around lovely cosmetic set and one that I am going to be putting to good use this season.

If you’re travelling for the holidays or looking for the perfect stocking stuffer then I suggest the Good Vibes Only Travel Bath Kit ($5.00 CAD). This kit includes 1 travel size shower gel, 1 moisturizing body lotion, 1 plush loofah, all in the prettiest travel bag. This is just a wonderful thing to add to a suitcase or a stocking.

If you are looking to recharge from a day of festivities then I suggest the Put Me To Bed Bath Kit ($10.00 CAD), which includes 1 body wash, 1 body lotion, 1 refreshing fragrance mist, 1 pair of super cozy socks, and 1 eye mask – all to tuck you in for a fantastic night’s sleep. Remember, Santa doesn’t come unless you’re asleep!

All of these kits from Hard Candy are available online at walmart.ca and would make a great gift or stocking stuffer, but to be honest I am enjoying them all now!

So, how’s it going with online school? Families reached by CBC Ottawa seem to have mixed reviews. 

Masuma Khan is a mother of two. Her seven-year-old, Hana Wyndham in Grade 2, is attending French immersion virtual school. Masuma is grateful it’s an option, but can’t help notice a lot of down time.

“There’s a lot of, ‘are you on mute?’ In terms of the amount of learning that’s actually happening, it does seem to be not that high,” said Masuma.

Parents who kept their children at home this fall are in the minority, but they still form a significant chunk of families in Ottawa.

In the city’s largest school board, the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board (OCDSB), about 27 per cent of elementary students and 22 per cent of high school students chose online learning. The Ottawa Catholic School Board says roughly a quarter of its students are online.

The second in command at the federal Environment Ministry challenged Canadians to continue to speak up about the problem of plastic pollution and push elected officials, scientists and businesses to do more.

Quebec MP Peter Schiefke, parliamentary secretary to the minister of Environment and Climate Change Canada, made the comments online at Vancouver’s annual zero waste conference on Friday.

He said most Canadians want solutions to curb the tens of thousands of tonnes of plastic garbage that ends up as litter each year on the country’s beaches, parks, lakes and in the stomachs of animals. 

“Making sure that message is heard with industry stakeholders, elected officials and make sure that they are constantly putting pressure on it … so we notice that this is something that Canadians want, the backing of Canadians to go and undertake these huge challenges,” he said.

Schiefke filled in for  Environment Minister Jonathan Wilkinson at the last minute after Wilkinson was called away to meet with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

OTTAWA — OC Transpo’s monthly bus pass is one of the most expensive passes in Canada, and transit riders are facing another 2.5 per cent hike in transit fares on New Year’s Day.

Ahead of Wednesday’s Transit Commission meeting on the 2021 budget, CTV News Ottawa looked at the cost of a monthly adult bus pass at transit services across Canada. Ottawa ranks behind the TTC in Toronto, Mississauga’s “MiWay”, Brampton Transit and Vancouver “TransLink” Zone 2 access to the suburbs for most expensive transit fares in Canada.

The cost of an OC Transpo adult monthly bus pass is currently $119.50 a month.

The 2021 City of Ottawa budget includes a proposed 2.5 per cent hike in transit fares. If approved, an adult monthly transit pass will increase $3 to $122.50, while a youth pass will increase $2.25 to $94.50 a month.  The cost of an adult single-ride cash fare would rise a nickel to $3.65.

The TTC is the most expensive transit service in Canada, charging $156 a month for an adult fare. MiWay charges $135 a month, and the cost of an adult monthly pass with Brampton Transit is $128.

Metro Vancouver’s transportation network “TransLink” has three fare zones. The monthly bus pass cost for “Zone 1”, which covers Vancouver, is $97 for adults. The “Zone 2” fare, which covers Vancouver and the suburbs of Richmond and Burnaby, is $131 a month.

Edmonton Transit Service, which includes a Light Rail System with 18 stations on two different lines, charges $97 a month for an adult monthly bus pass.

An adult monthly bus pass in Calgary costs $109 a month.

The survey by CTV News Ottawa of transit fares across Canada shows Gatineau has higher transit fares than Montreal and Quebec City. The STO charges $99 a month.

A monthly adult bus pass costs $88.50 in Montreal and $89.50 in Quebec City.

The cheapest adult monthly bus fare is in Charlottetown, at $58.50 a month. A monthly bus pass in Whitehorse costs $62 a month.
