Some of you may have seen on Instagram that I’m currently in Scottsdale, Arizona. I’m pretty lucky that my work sent me here to take a marketing course. Justin has never been to Arizona, so he tagged along with me, and while I’m stuck in a meeting room all day, he’s sipping margaritas by the pool and enjoying the desert air. Okay, I can’t complain. . . we tacked on a few extra days to the trip so I could enjoy the beautiful weather and sightseeing too. I’ll share some pics soon.
I also want to mention that I had the honour of being featured in Framework Magazine’s April Blogger Panel. Framework is a fabulous online magazine dedicated to the essential elements of stylish living. Thanks Framework!
Happy Monday everyone! Today is a pretty exciting day for me. . .tonight I will be attending my very first fashion show, ever. Toronto’s World Mastercard Fashion Week begins today and runs until Friday. I’ve dreamed of attending a fashion show for as long as I can remember, and I’m giddy with anticipation for this evening. I’ll be attending several spectacular shows over the next week including Joe Fresh, Mackage, Rudsak, Vawk, Lucian Matis and Pink Tartan.
Just as exciting as attending the shows, I’m also looking forward to meeting several other Toronto Fashion Bloggers for the first time in person. Connecting with other women who love fashion as much as I do was one of the main reasons I started blogging. I moved to Toronto six years ago this month, and have met many wonderful people since, but none that shared the same interest and passion for fashion as I do. I have a feeling that I will finally feel like I’m in my element this week, with fabulous women who, like me, live for fashion. Now, the most important question is, “What in the world am I going to wear?”.
This is one of those outfits that I easily took from day to night with a quick switcheroo. I swapped out black tights and suede pumps with these thigh high boots, and switched from my large black Balenciaga City bag to this smaller Balenciaga Envelope clutch. Boom…I was ready to leave work and head out for some yummy food and drinks with my girlfriends.
Also, every item I’m wearing (except for my ring) is at least a year and a half old, so this was the perfect outfit to link up with the super sweet Ani at her blog Fleurani. She’s hosting a link up for outfits featuring “oldie by goodie” pieces from our wardrobes. Stop by and check it out, or better yet, feel free to link up with her too! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

I think I’ve done it…after more than 10 years of trying, I’ve finally figured out how to achieve the perfect “not-too-perfect, rolled-out-of-bed” wavy hair. Now, this might sound like no big deal to those of you blessed with gorgeous tresses, but I’m not exaggerating when I say that I have the worst hair ever. It’s thick, poufy, frizzy, dry, prone to split ends and has just enough wave that I need to straighten it everyday, but not enough wave for it to look presentable…arghh! I’ve either straightened or curled my hair EVERY single time I’ve washed it for the last 15 years…yes, 15 years!
I’ve always used an inexpensive hair dryer, and I’ve been using the same brand of flat iron (to both straighten and curl my hair) for many, many years. I honestly never thought that the brand or quality of the styling tools I used would make a noticeable difference in the appearance of my hair. When the lovely people over at José Eber offered to send me a few of their products to try, I figured this was the perfect opportunity to test my theory.
They sent me 3 styling tools, the World’s Fastest Flat Iron, the Trio Clipless Curling Iron and the Infrared Blow Dryer. I’ve been using all 3 products for the last couple of months and I can honestly say that they have made a huge difference in the appearance and healthiness of my hair. I never realized the effect that high quality styling tools could have on my hair. I’m almost at the point where I can blow dry my hair and I actually don’t have to straighten it before I leave the house! That is shocking for me!
Tomorrow, I have an exciting little something for one of you lucky ladies. The wonderful people at José Eber have offered to giveaway one of their styling tools, and the best part is you get to choose which item you want to win. . .either the World’s Fastest Flat Iron, the Trio Clipless Curling Iron or the Infrared Blow Dryer! I will also be posting a little more detail about my experiences with each product, along with a few beginners tips that I’ve learned. Be sure to check back in tomorrow for this great giveaway!
