Beauty: Soft + Supple Skin With MaskerAide!

Heya! I like to relax with a facial mask over the weekend as apart of my weekly beauty routine. It's a great way to relax, help restore my skin from the previous week, and get it ready for the week ahead. It's a beauty tradition I enjoy (usually with a glass of wine:). For the past 4 weeks, I tried 3 different masks, I was sent to sample from MaskerAide. And for the past 4 weeks, my skin has felt refreshed, rejuvenated, and soft.

Style: Spring Statement!

Heya! Spring is finally here! I just wish the weather would start warming up so I can't wait to start wearing more dresses. Like this fabulous dress I found at Marshalls for only $20! Marshalls has some great transition pieces that I can mix and match with items from my own wardrobe.

Beauty: Soft Cocoa Butter Skin With Palmer's!

Heya! I have been going through my skin moisturizing creams like crazy this winter. It has been such a cold bitter season and my skin has been suffering for it. I ran out my usual dry skin cream, so I decided to try Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula, that was sent to me several weeks ago.

Style: Shopping is My Cardio!

Heya! I am a die hard Sex and The City fan and I sometimes catch myself quoting from the iconic t.v. show. From "she's fashion roadkill" to "I'm just not that into you," some of televisions funniest one liners have come from Sex and The City. And when I saw this fabulous hoodie at Sirens, printed with one of my favourite quotes from the series, I whispered to myself "Hello lover"!

Exhibit: The Enchanting World of Geishas and Divas at TMC!

Heya! 2 weeks ago I visited The Textile Museum of Canada (TMC) for the first time. What drove me to visit the TMC was one of their newest exhibits, From Geisha To Diva: The Kimonos of Ichimaru. I have always been fascinated by the Geisha lifestyle and the beautiful kimonos they wear, so much so that I was inspired to style a modern kimono from Forever 21 in one of my latest Style Posts (read it here).  Geisha To Diva: The Kimonos of Ichimaru exhibit's decades worth of Ichimaru's beautiful kimonos and personal affects, as well as other geisha artifacts.

Style: I'm Not Weird, I'm Limited Edition!

Heya! I first saw this "quote" top at Sirens several months ago. Unfortunately it came in white, which is one colour I try to stay away from. Then a few weeks ago, I saw the top again, this time in grey. I had to buy it! I love it, and it explains my style perfectly, without me saying a word!
