An Afternoon of Glitz and Glamour | BeautyBOUTIQUE & PHYTO Paris TIFF Suite 2016


2016 TIFF Suite with beautyBOUTIQUE and Phyto Paris


Each year, the air is filled with a bit more glitz and glamour as the Toronto International Film Festival rolls into town. You know what that means - big films, big stars, big hair, red carpets, red lipstick - the works! Last Thursday, Emily and I strolled down the trendy streets of King Street West, past the popular little bars and cafes with slinking queues full of beautiful people. We reached the beautiful Spoke Club, and were led up to a charming little showroom with some of our favourite brands. Various stations were set up for hair and makeup, as well as previews of new collections and holiday releases! I'm so excited to share our experience with you today - keep on reading for the deets...

The Ultimate Girl's Night In - Celebrating The Bachelorette Canada with Two Oceans Wine!



The Ultimate Girls Night In With The Bachelorette Canada and Two Oceans Wine!


As I'm sure you all know, The Bachelorette Canada premiered yesterday on W Network! If you follow me on snapchat, you'll have noticed that I had a really rough time last week... I really needed a pick me up, and unwinding with my roommates and having a ~girls night in~ was the perfect solution!


Luckily for us, Two Oceans Wine set us up with an awesome little kit to make sure we were comfortable and well looked after. Delicious wine? Cosy socks? Plush blanket? YES PLEASE. Two Oceans Wines joins Canada’s first-ever Bachelorette, Jasmine Lorimer, on W Network’s much anticipated The Bachelorette Canada as program sponsor this fall. I'm super excited to share two of the wines they sent, in case you're perusing the aisles of LCBO and need a little treat for your own girls night in!

Power To The Period | Women Helping Women with U By Kotex!


Power To The Period!


I used to volunteer at a food bank during high school (anyone remember those 40 hours of mandatory volunteer work?) We received tons of canned goods, milk, and other non-perishable items. I distinctly remember that female hygiene products were highly requested, yet we didn't have enough stock to keep up with demand. I think when most people think of food banks and shelter supply centres, they think of cans of beans and bags of milk, cookies, bags of pasta, maybe clothing and childrens toys... but not feminine products! Luckily, U By Kotex is working to change that with their #PeriodPower campaign! Keep reading to find out more...
