Coffee Date at Colette [Toronto]

Just before Easter Colette was decorated with cute easter eggs, bunnies and let’s just stop and appreciate that awesome chalkboard art. Their holiday decor is on point. Also, they have feature drinks that they change according to the season or for different holidays. The feature drink at the time I went was the Maple Fog Latte. I typically drink an earl gray with two milks and two sugars. Yup, double it up. London Fogs are my favourite. So imagine how happy I was to know this drink was made with an Earl Gray base. I love this place and the interior is dreamy! Clean and chic. Very Parisian. I can’t wait to have brunch here next time!

Mistura Make-Up [Haul+Review]

Oh the world of beauty products! This is my Mistura make up haul and mini review of the products that I’ve tried. Above you’ll see the four products,starting from the top left, quad eye shadow palette, pressed powder, concealer/corrector and their plump and glow lip gloss. MISTURA MAKE-UP The plump and glow gloss actually reminds me of a favourite gloss I had years ago. The dermaglow lip gloss that also had plumping properties. The plump and glow isn’t sticky and actually leaves your lips feeling hydrated. Comes in 3 different colours. This is the gloss in Gwen: The Bella Seta Eye Shadow Quad in Fashionista retail for $39.49. The eyeshadow colours can be worn during the day or evening depending on how you mix them up. The lightest colour can go all over the lid and the darker colours along your lashline for a subtle daytime look. Evening, the options are…

#EssieNailedIt – Essie Tutorial [How To]

https://youtu.be/k1ZBxPkkmwY Essie nail polishes have the cutest and creative names for their nail colours! Speaking of cute names. The colours I received were wicked (the darker colour), demure vix (the lighter one), along with an essie base and top coat. Using a base and top coat really makes a difference in terms of how long the manicure lasts. Much longer than doing the essie nail colour on its own. STEP 1: Apply essie base coat DRY STEP 2: Apply tape to half your nail. Vertical or horizontally. STEP 3: Apply nail polish to non taped side. STEP 4: Apply second colour. STEP 5: Add essie drying drops. Here’s the how to video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQgYBRwhvmI Disclaimer: I received these products complimentary for testing purposes.

Garnier Nutrisse #WearUltraColor

What do you get with two boxes of Garnier Nutrisse hair dye? Ultra vibrant colour and soft hair! I’m really impressed with this hair dye. I’ve dyed my hair for years, black, brown then black again. Every time I dyed my hair, results were dry, crunchy and the colour barely lasted through the month. This time with Garnier Nutrisse, during the application process I noticed there was absolutely no ‘chemical like’ smell coming from the dye. Other brands have really strong ammonia-like smells.So strong that I can’t even leave the washroom without having to hear my husband complain about the stench. The ultimate test of course was to walk by him with it in my hair. No reaction from him what so ever. The colour lasts a lot longer than other brands. No sign of whites. Also, during the application process I dropped the dye bottle on the floor. No product…

Shopping at STC #STCDressCode

Scarborough Town Center is one of my favourite malls to shop at. For the longest time they had almost all of my favourite stores, until recently now they have them all! They just had their grand opening for *drum roll please* ZARA! Yup. They now have Zara at STC. They have a men, women and a children section and amazing selections that you won’t want to leave without buying something. Most of my favourite clothes are from Zara and not just from Toronto but from my travels as well! It’s actually the largest Zara in the east GTA! Now let’s gush over this purse I bought from Zara. It’s edgy and the detail on the strap makes it really stand out.  For the grand opening there was an awesome installation placed in the mall beside Zara for people to interact with. Different booths within a bigger booth to get your…
