If just one more of my friends confesses to me that they don't wash their face before going to bed, I will seriously throw a fit. For me, skipping a cleansing routine means breakout city come morning, so I make sure to cleanse every single night before hitting the hay. A build up of oil, dirt, makeup and everything else the elements throw at you is never a good thing. Which is why today I am...

True story: My friend and I were in New York City and we went to a very expensive, fancy restaurant. The type of place where a man with a little broom comes around to wipe the crumbs off your table between every course. It was kind of a #treatyoself situation. We sat down and took a look at the wine list (cause that's what you do at fancy places) and everything seemed like gibberish. It may have...

About two weeks ago, the white tents were raised in downtown Toronto signalling the return of fashion week and of course, we got excited. When Maybelline invited us for a backstage sneak peek pre-show to see make up artist Grace Lee work her magic on the models, we jumped at the chance. 


We also had the opportunity to ask Grace a few questions burning in our minds. Obviously I went...

Ladies, I know my concealers. Having battled some pretty nasty skin issues in my teens (and then well into my adulthood), concealer was the first beauty product I got my hands on and would probably be number one desert island choice. 

Since I am a total expert on concealers, I thought I would round up my absolute top ten favourite concealers of all time. These range from full to sheer...

My morning and night skincare routines used to be quite the process. Just read this article from a few years back. Since then, I have been focusing on streamlining and simplifying. With a drawer full of half used products, I seriously needed to cut back. So I decided that my routine needed to fit into one clear travel bag and that all my products would be useful. 

I now have my morning and...

I happened upon Imm Living products at an Interior Design showcase and every time I laid eyes on something, I turned to my friend to exclaim, 'OMG. So. Cute.'.

When we ditch the beanies, hat hair and static for warmer weather, it's time to celebrate. This spring, we're going to get you excited with some great hairstyles!

The runways were fresh with romantic spring looks, whether it was floral accessories or messy, milkmaid braids. At the same time, we saw sleek, sophisticated looks represented with no nonsense ponytails and slicked back do's. 

In...

As you well know, I've had my fair share of skin issues. From dry patches to oily foreheads and bumpy acne, I've seen it all. With the RIDICULOUS (like actually, ridiculous) weather we've had here, my skin has been like a map of issues with a little dry desert over here and some wetlands oiliness happening over there - it's #totesnotamaze. Part of my skincare routine to deal with this has...

So I have talked about this ad nauseam, but I am obsessed with finding my signature scent. Somehow I got it into my head that every chic woman must have a signature scent that defines her style and who she is. I imagine that the effortlessly cool ladies of Paris all have a signature scent that they spritz on every morning as they casually make their way down to the cafe for a cappuccino. Obviously...

When spring rolls around (whenever it darn well chooses to because like, HELLO, I AM WAITING), it means two things to me: It's time to break out my new Zara coat that I purchased two months ago in hopes it would get warmer and SPRING MAKEUP RELEASES! 

If you're smart, you've already started injecting spring into your beauty routine, but as we move forward into the new season, it's time to try...
