I can’t believe it’s the last day of summer! The weather certainly doesn’t feel like it. To keep summer alive, I wanted to share one of my favourite outings this summer, when we visited Pickering Millenium Square for a relaxing beach day. I fell in love with the quaint village filled with independent cafes, art galleries and small businesses.

It was blazing hot so I wore a yellow floral romper from Hollister (similar romper here), marble sunglasses c/o Polette, a panama hat from Joe Fresh, tassle earrings from H&M, watch c/o Daniel Wellington and Koolchic espadrilles from Nine West for a colourful beach look.… View Full Post

Nudestix is a Canadian, cruelty-free beauty brand sold at Sephora. I got a chance to learn about their products at the grand opening of the Yonge and Eglinton Sephora, and sampled the Nudestix Magnetic Eye Color pencils. These eyeshadow pencils come in both matte and satin finishes, isn’t tested on animals and is free of preservatives… all the things I look for in cosmetics! I wanted to share my thoughts in a Nudestix Magnetic Eye Color review.

Nudestix Magnetic Eye Color review: application

These products are a traditional pencil, and glide on the skin smoothly. I didn’t find it scratchy at all and it was very creamy! The pencils blended easily with my fingers and I found it was best to build up coverage to create the desired look.

I would definitely recommend using an eyeshadow primer, and also a matte powder shadow all over the eyelid to help create a blended look.

My favourite part about the product? I LOVE that it comes with a custom, dedicated sharpener. I’ve ruined too many gorgeous chubby pencils with crappy dull sharpeners that are too big or too small for the product. I can feel confident that I won’t completely ruin these amazing pencils!… View Full Post

My favourite part about the 2016 Emmys so far has been Jimmy Kimmel’s opening monologue, featuring Jeb Bush and Julia Louis Dreyfus… but of course, I’m here to talk fashion! Let’s get right down to the sparkles, velvet, and jewel toned gowns in my best and worst dressed 2016 Emmys roundup!

5. Claire Danes shines in this Schiaparelli golden gown. The sequins are so stunning and I love the unique neckline of this dress.

4. Kristen Bell might be petite, but the print on this Zuhair Murad gown is larger than life… and features flamingos! How could I not put it on my best-dressed list, her recent wage-gap spoof is all the more reason to LOVE her, even if you’re not a Frozen fan.

This season, sock booties are taking over. Worn with a pair of jeans or bare legs and a cute skater skirt, sock booties can add a trendy edge to your fall wardrobe. I wore this pair of sock booties by Charles by Charles David c/o DSW Canada with a suede skirt and mockneck sweater for a great transitional look. If I add tights and a wool topper, this combination can take me well into the winter months!

I’m wearing a suede skirt from Forever 21, a mockneck sweater from Forever 21, a crossbody bag from Aldo and booties c/o DSW Canada.… View Full Post
