Style: Retro Purple Haze!

Heya! I was browsing in Joe Fresh recently and was pleasantly surprised with the cute dresses and skirts that are available, at amazing clearance prices. I fell in love with this dress as soon as I saw it. And when I tried it on, I knew I had to buy it, especially once I noticed it was on sale. The bodice fits perfectly, and I love the retro "feel" of the full skirt and cut of the dress. I also adore the pattern, and of course, the purple colour.

Beauty: Almay's Subtle Pretty!

Heya! I've always known about Almay Make-up, and even tried some of their products in the past. I wasn't really impressed with them, so I've never tried Almay again. But several weeks ago, I met Almay PR Representative Kelsey, at the Fashion and Beauty Blogger Conference Spark Sessions. She introduced me to some of Almay's products, the history of the company, and the great love story of Fanny May and Alfred Woititz, the founders of Almay.

Style: Nice + Naughty Cheer!

Heya! When I found this cozy sweater and fun warm novelty socks from Urban Outfitters, I couldn't resist styling a Christmas themed outfit. So I braved the Toronto Ice Storm aftermath, to show this fabulous (and warm) outfit!

Style: Grande Sexy: Coffee + (Faux) Fur!

Heya! I don't normally post on the weekend, but this week has been so crazy hectic: trying to fit in work, holiday events, Christmas shopping, baking, and making a gingerbread house (yes, I made a gingerbread house), that I ran out of time to post on my blog! But I had to share this fabulous outfit I bought at Homegrown Boutique in Yorkville a few weeks ago. 

I've always wanted to stop by and check this store out, being a place that features Canadian designer fashions. Armed with a $50 gift card I received from Spark Sessions and a resolve to find a sexy and chic dress, I finally had an excuse to buy myself a Christmas gift.

Exhibit: Experiencing The Evolution of David Cronenberg!

Heya! A few weeks ago I visited the new exhibit at TIFF Bell Lightbox called David Cronenberg: Evolution. This exhibit is one of the coolest and strangest exhibits I have ever been too in a long time. But knowing David Cronenberg films, I wouldn't expect anything less. I knew I was in for something unique when I noticed the weird face morphing photo booth outside the exhibit, which is free for anyone to try.

Makeup Review: Naturally Beautiful: Vasanti Liquid Cover Up!

I'm always on the lookout for new and exciting beauty and make up products. For almost a year now, a friend of mine has been pushing me to try Vasanti, a new line of cosmetics and skin care . I just ran out of my liqid foundation when I came upon their booth at The National Women's Show (Read about my day at The National Women's Show here), so I decided to sample Vasanti's liquid foundation. I met with Make up Artist Carley, who colour matched my skin tone, and tried the liquid cover up - foundation and concealer-in-1 in Liquid V1 on me.

Style: Keeping It Mod With Yellow Butterflies!

Heya! Now that it's cold outside, and is going to stay that way for a while, I have to get creative on how I wear dresses and skirts in the winter. I want to stay warm and stylish, but don't want to look boring by wearing black tights all the time. That's why I am so happy I found this amazing online company called Zohara. They sell fabulous tights and leggings in  very cool colours, designs, and patterns. The tights are so comfortable and last a long time. I still have the first pair I bought! They are so chic and versatile. Perfect for a visit to the AGO or a night of cocktails with friends on King Street West. I first came across this company at one of my trips to The National Women's Show (to find out more about my visit to The National Women's show go here).

Style: Swag Style With Smart Set!

Heya! Have you been to +SmartSetFashion recently? I love the Fall and the new Holiday Collections. Full of rich colours, like deep burgundy and emerald green, charming animal prints, bedazzled and be-sparkled lace and beaded tops and skirts. All the items I tried on were so comfortable and fit amazing! It was hard to decide what to buy!

I fell in love with so many pieces that I decided to style two looks using the gift card I received as part of the swag bag from Spark Sessions, Canada's first and only Fashion and Beauty blogger conference.

Event: My Annual Date With My Favourite Woman!

Heya! One weekend in the fall, for over 10 years, I have a standing date with one of my favourite people.  Almost every year, my Mother and I, attend The National Women's Show at The Toronto Convention Centre. Some years, other friends and family have joined us, but this year it was just the two of us, like it was at our first visit several years ago. My Mom doesn't live in the city, so she makes the treacherous trek into a city she doesn't know, on the bus and train. She spends the weekend with me and it turns into a shopping/girl movie weekend. We both look forward to it every year.
