Personal Care Review: My Secret to Feeling Fresh All Day Long!

Secret Clinical Antiperspirant Clear Gel Review

For the past several weeks, my life has been pretty crazy. Between spending time with my family and friends, scheduling some alone time with my new beau, working six jobs (yes six) which includes keeping up with my blog posts, making some play time with my energetic kitty, and still trying to find the time (and will) to go to the gym, the last thing on my jam-packed mind is my antiperspirant. I just don't have the time to stop and smell the roses, let alone making sure I still smell rosy.

So I was super excited when BzzAgent sent me a trial size of Secret Clinical Antiperspirant Clear Gel to test out, thinking that my stressful lifestyle is the perfect test to see if it can really last as long as it says it can.

Exhibit: Black Butterflies, Cityscapes & James Joyce!

The Power Plant's Black Cloud, Invention, I SEE WORDS, I SEE VOICES Exhibitions Review

I was feeling a little worn out from my hectic week so I decided to take a much decided art therapy day and visit the new fall exhibits at The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery at The Harbourfront in Toronto. I got a quick preview of the three exhibitions running now during Nuit Blanche, but because of the crowds and early morning time, I knew I wanted to go back and take my time to really enjoy them.

Makeup Review: Covergirl Lashblast Fight Club - Fusion vs.Volume!

Covergirl Lashblast Fusion & Volume Mascaras Review

I am a mascara addict. It's a problem and I'm no closer to recovery, which I'm fine with. I love mascara, as my past makeup reviews can attest too. So when BzzAgent asked me to review one of four different CoverGirl Lashblast mascaras, I emailed a 'hell ya!' (really, but you get my drift:)

The mascara I chose to review was Covergirl Lashblast Fusion Mascara because it was the only one of the four types to boast volume AND length (length is key for me). I also happened to have had the Covergirl Lashblast Volume Blasting Mascara in my "to be reviewed" beauty drawer - probably was a gift in a swag bag that I received. So I tried out both of these mascaras and I definitely liked one more than the other. Let the fight club commence!

P.s!: Beautiful November!

October Blog Roundup & November Preview

It's hard to believe it's already November especially since the last few days felt like Spring outside. With my schedule packed full of personal and professional events and happenings, October passed by so quickly! And I had so many fabulous highlights from the previous month.

One of my favourite moments from October has to be cheering on the Toronto Blue Jays as they kept winning game after game on their road to the World Series. Although they were eventually eliminated, it was still thrilling to watch them get so far and see the city of Toronto and fans from across the nation and the globe Come Together to cheer them on!
