This past weekend, we got together to celebrate my close girlfriend’s engagement to her wonderful fiancé. Both families and a plethora of friends came together over bubbly and a mouthwatering spread of Indian and Vietnamese food to surround the happy couple with love and well wishes. It was a beautiful event that made me tear up more than once. I care about her so damn much, and couldn’t be happier for her.
Still a little worn out from holiday party dress season, I opted for something a little different. Enter: the jumpsuit. (more…)
I love a classic silhouette, and many of the outfits on this blog feature figure-hugging midi dresses. I think they’re beautiful on every body type, and perfect for office holiday parties – particularly if you want to dress a little more conservatively while still feeling fancy and looking great. (more…)
I love party season. Mid-November until the first of January is a dazzling whirlwind of holiday parties, my birthday, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve. So many reasons to dress up! And as anyone who knows me knows – I’ll take any excuse. (more…)
Greetings from Themyscira! So, are you surprised I dressed up as Wonder Woman for Halloween this year? No? Huh.
Read on for all the details on this costume/cosplay, including all the product links, my tips and tricks, and photos of me pretending to fight things. (more…)
I’m baaaaack! And just in time for Halloween. You didn’t think I’d miss an opportunity to play dress up, did you? I’ve dressed up as many iconic fictional females, from Holly Golightly to Lara Croft to Hermione Granger to Belle. This year, I went for the original Disney princess: Snow White. (more…)
While I like trying out new makeup brands and products as much as the next femme, when it comes to my daily beauty routine, I have a few staple makeup products that I refuse to go without. In fact, I’m so attached to these 10 beauty products that as soon as one starts running low, I run and buy a back-up!
I’ve re-purchased most of these products over and over, and they’ve all reigned supreme over any competition, achieving “holy grail” status. (more…)
I’ve been a little off the grid the last few months (though you can always find me on Instagram), but I thought I’d return to the blogosphere to share a few of my favourite things, ranging from beauty, to fashion and tech. (more…)
Happy New Year! I hope you all had a smashing time ringing in 2016 with your friends or loves last night. Now that we’re all in bed, browsing the internet and nursing our collective hangovers, let’s talk about fashion.
New Year’s Eve is both one of my favourite nights of the year and one of my favourite nights to dress for. It is without a doubt the sparkliest holiday, and I try to take full advantage. (more…)
Holiday party season continues, as does my love affair with 1950s fashion. It truly is my favourite decade for feminine style, followed closely by the 1940s. That’s why I combined a 1940s Rita Hayworth-inspired hairstyle with a 1950s Marilyn Monroe-inspired little red dress for this glamourous evening look. (more…)
I’d heard about House of Lashes from the lovely Alexandra on Youtube, and they looked so stunning on her I had to give them a try for myself. After browsing the many options on their site, I ended up choosing three different eyelash styles to try. But before I go into those, let’s take a moment to appreciate the beautiful packaging these come in! (Who doesn’t love great packaging?) (more…)
As a beauty lover myself, this holiday gift guide was a lot of fun to put together. I tried to not just include actual makeup products, but also beauty tools and other goodies to pamper the beauty lover in your life with. Personally, I’d be thrilled to unwrap any of these at Christmas! (more…)
A little while ago, Scarlet & Julia reached out to me to ask if I’d be interested in trying out their online beauty boutique. Eagerly, I said ‘yes please!’ (to quote Amy Poehler), and a few days later, a very special black box arrived in the mail for me. (more…)
Halloween is one of the holidays I look forward to most each year. While many people like to embrace all things spooky and dark, I pretty much just love the excuse to dress up as one of my favourite characters. So, maybe that’s not quite the essence of Halloween, but… (more…)
I get kind of dangerous when it’s late at night and I’m home alone. The hairs on the back of my neck stand up, I start to twitch, and before I know it, I’m online shopping. In honour of fall and fall-ing in love with so many autumn beauty trends (like a vampy, dark lip), I did a bit of damage online at MAC. Here’s what I picked up! (more…)
