An evening of innovative food infused with Tyrrells chips, live tweeting, games and meeting with bloggers. There’s some new chip flavours in town! Sweet Potato & Smoked Chili (my fave), Beetroot, Parsnip & Potato with Sea Salt & Sweet Potato, Carrot with Sea Salt. [Tweet “Tyrrells chips are all natural, home grown & hand cooked! #Foodie”] At the #exceedinglyenglish event at Rasa Restaurant😍 So many flavours!! Where do I start?! pic.twitter.com/wWBkhc8pq9 — Humara Kausar (@HumaraKausar) October 21, 2015 I’ve never been to the RASA restaurant before this event so it was nice to scope it out. Located at 196 Robert St it’s a small dark space in the same neighborhood where I went to high school.(Harbord) On the menu were appetizers infused with Tyrrells chips. YUM. These appetizers are great easy ideas next time you’re entertaining people at home.  Exhibit A: Fish & Chips – Deep fried Halibut, tartar, crispy…

What I Wore: Baroque + Overalls

I feel as if I may have written this somewhere before, but I love Korean fashion! (And that’s before our trip to South Korea). Toronto has many options when it comes to shopping for looks directly from Korea. Especially on Queen St! If you look carefully you can find some nice stuff from Spoof!, a boutique on the corner of Queen and Spadina and there are a few more whose store names I can’t remember. Kathy?! Something like that. There have been times where I found some unique outfits made in Korea but they didn’t have my size. Most girls there are petite in terms of their frame, not as much for height. But if you really love it don’t worry, do as I do and turn a dress into a pant shirt combo or wear it with leggings! Short sleeves? I layer a longer sleeve shirt underneath or just…

What I Wore: Faux Fur & Cashmere

Hello OCTOBER! I love Fall! It’s so weird to say Fall is here when you don’t see any tree’s with leaves changing colours. It truly feels like Fall when I see either almost bare branches or colourful trees. Sorry not sorry for those who live in climates where Fall doesn’t look like that.  WHAT I WORE: FAUX FUR & CASHMERE Just a regular day, strolling the neighborhood I picked out some new and old clothes to create this look. This COS Cashmere toque from the lovely people at Globe Style was styled with some awesome customized pins. Definitely a different style I’ve never tried before. What do you think? The pin is in. @finalfashionartist’s latest illustration (it’s @dior of course) for the back page of #GlobeStyleAdvisor A photo posted by Globe Style (@globestyle) on Oct 2, 2015 at 7:38pm PDT One of my favourite things we did when we…

Guerlain Mon Exclusif Event

Guerlain launched a new fragrance which you can name yourself. Guerlain Mon Exclusif has no name. You get letters in the fragrance box so you can give your own name to the perfume or at the event we had a chance to get it engraved! I think the no name idea is brilliant! Gives the customer the feel of the perfume being their own. Putting your name, or the name of your choice on such a luxurious bottle feels… well..real pish posh.  I absolutely adore Guerlain. It’s luxurious and their makeup to skincare smells amazing. Guerlain has some affordable products in their make-up section. I’d say very similar to Dior or YSL. But I doubt either of them have an absolutely amazing cream that costs approx. $500! That’s a story for a different post. The fragrance is described as a gourmand, with fougere accords of fresh fern, oriental notes, lavender, soft sandalwood,…
