My Style: Fast Fashion!

Denim Joggers & Urban Behaviour Outfit

I don't own a pair of jogging pants, fleece pants, or any kind a "sweat/jogger pants". I'm not a huge fan and I just feel uncomfortable leaving my house in something I would only wearing around the house or at the gym. So when I finally found a pair of denim joggers that I felt good in, I had to buy them!

My Style: Tank Top, Denim Joggers, Asian-inspired Jacket from Urban Behaviour, Mat and Nat Bag Heel Boy, Nine West Ballet Flats, outfit, inspiration, shopping, OOTD, look, the purple scarf, melanie.ps, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, sunglasses, pink, necklace

I found these pants for the fabulous discounted price of $10! Ladies, I have found a store that any fashion-conscious woman would love! Its name is Urban Behaviour outlet store and its located downtown on trendy Queen Street West at the corner of Spadina Avenue.

Skincare Review: A Temporary Miracle from L'Oreal!

L'Oreal Revitalift Miracle Blur Instant Eye Smoother Review

I have been concerned about the skin around my eye area a lot lately. Unfortunately, age and my lack of sleep has been causing my eyes and the surrounding area to not look their sparkling best! So I decided to try to find an eye cream that will help me out. So for the past several weeks I have been using the L'Oreal Revitalift Miracle Blur Instant Eye Smoother, and I have some mixed feelings about this product.

When I first started looking for different eye creams/serums to test out, the L'Oreal Miracle Blur jumped out. I mean it has miracle in it's name, and let's face it I was searching for a miracle! (Marketing at it's best:).

Exhibit: 15 Years of a Stunning POV at the AGO!

AGO's Stephen Andrews POV Exhibition Review

A few weeks ago I visited the Art Gallery of Ontario to specifically see the amazing From the Forest to the Sea: Emily Carr in British Columbia exhibit. I had some time to kill afterwards, so I decided to visit the fourth floor's Stephen Andrews POV exhibit and I'm so glad I did.

Exhibit: Immerse Yourself in Emily Carr's World at the AGO!

AGO's From the Forest to the Sea: Emily Carr in British Columbia Exhibition Review

Emily Carr is a name that most Canadians have heard. They may even be familiar with some of her work or remember her as a subject of one of Canada's Heritage Minuets short films. In the Art Gallery of Ontario's latest exhibit From the Forest to the Sea: Emily Carr in British Columbia, I, along with other visitors, were reintroduced to the the magnificence of Emily Carr.

Fresh from an acclaimed run at Dulwich Picture Gallery in London, From the Forest to the Sea is an absolutely amazing showing of Carr's work, tracing her journey not only as an artist, but her struggle with the outside world.

Exhibit: Art Commands Attention!

Fort York's Gertrude Kearns: The Art of Command Exhibit Review

Two weeks ago I decided to visit one of Toronto's most historic places - Fort York. I haven's visited it in several years, save for the odd concert and Nuit Blanche event, and I really enjoyed myself wondering around the old buildings and reacquainting myself with old Fort York..
