Hi Everyone! Earlier this week, I hit up Yorkdale to pull my favourite Fall finds to help shoppers get inspired for their Fall wardrobes! I’m so excited to partner with Yorkdale for the next few months to fill you in on what’s in store!

 

First up is a shopping event called Style By Night, which will kick off the Fall shopping season TODAY, on the official first day of Fall! I’ll be at Yorkdale tonight (Sept. 22) from 6-10pm (in the West Atrium, near Harry Rosen) showcasing all of my style picks, and of course, doing a little shopping of my own.

 

 

These photos show just a few of the fabulous Fall pieces I found at Yorkdale. The floral Ted Baker coat is definitely on my shopping list, as is the Anthro denim jacket and Club Monaco heels.

 

Tons of retailers will be holding exclusive offers from 6-10pm tonight, including $44 denim and 30% off at Gap, gift with purchase for the first 50 customers at Lululemon, and an 10% off all sale at Holt Renfrew, just to name a few. Some of their newest retailers opening in October in the expansion wing will also have pop-up booths on-site so you can get a taste of their upcoming Yorkdale locations. Nordstrom will be doing lip and makeup touch-ups, Nadege will be serving delicious desserts, and NYX will have an interactive photobooth. It will definitely be a fun night! I hope you can all stop by and say hi! I can’t wait to meet you!

Girls Night In with Palm Bay

Monday, September 12, 2016 4 0

Palm-Bay-Girls-Night-In-1

 

I was recently interviewed for a magazine article, and one of the questions I was asked was, “When are you the happiest?”. Without hesitation, I answered, “When I’m with my loved ones.” Nothing brings me more joy in life than being with my family and friends. I’ll use any excuse to get together with my friends, so when Palm Bay asked me if I wanted to host a “Girls Night In” with my girls, I yelled “Sign me up!”.

 

We’re in the middle of redecorating our condo, sans designer, so I bribed my lovely gal pals, Victoria and Gaby, with some delicious apps, sweet treats, and yummy Palm Bay, to come on over for some girl time, in exchange for their fashionable opinions on how to decorate our place (decorating posts to come to the blog soon!). Haha, obviously, I didn’t really need to bribe them, but we’ll use any excuse to get together.

 

The yummy tropical flavour of Palm Bay’s new Pomegranate Hibiscus Cocktail inspired me to add a little tropical flair to our Girls Night In. Easy-to-make appetizers, fun music, and a bring-me-back-to-my-childhood ice cream bar rounded out our memorable afternoon.

YSL Beauté Mascara Vinyl Couture

Thursday, June 23, 2016 2 2

YSL New Mascara collection colors

 

For those of you who don’t know, I’ve been working in the beauty industry (in marketing) for over a year and half now. Just before I joined the industry, I fell into a bit of a beauty rut. I was using the same products for years and years, and didn’t seem to have the motivation to try anything new.

 

Moving in to the beauty industry seemed to spark a fire that I thought had nearly fizzled out. I gained a renewed love for makeup, I stepped up my makeup game (hello, contouring and strobing!!), I now love experimenting with new products, and I’m always trying to find the best products on the market. Beauty has become a big part of my life, and I’m going to start sharing more of my fave beauty finds with you here on the blog, and of course Snapchat (crazystylelove) and Instagram!

 

Today, I’m super excited to share one of my newest fave makeup finds…the new Yves Saint Laurent Beauté Mascara Vinyl Couture! YSL Beauté recently launched this stunning collection of revolutionary mascaras in 9 fiery colours, including 2 sparkly top-coats. They have an intense and super shiny formula that gives lashes length, volume, and curl, with deep, saturated colour.

I was given 5 of the gorgeous shades to try, and as you can see above, the pigment of the colours is intense and beautiful. With 9 powerful shades, you can style a new lash look every day and every night. 😉 What I love the most about the colours is that even though they are so vivid, they are totally wearable during the day with a more natural makeup look, and of course, for night when you want the power to play with bold looks.

 

I don’t need to say too much about the packaging, as it clearly speaks for itself. Dressed up like a lip gloss, the clear, see-through bottle defies convention and is fiercely beautiful.

One of my favourite colours in the collection is N° 7, I’m The Craze – an intense violet that is super wearable for day or night. It’s a bit difficult to see, but I’m wearing I’m the Craze in all of these photos. My eyelids are also hooded, making it extra difficult to see my lashes, but I’m hoping you can see just enough to see how fabulous this mascara looks.

The vinyl formula results in a smooth, shiny texture. The wand evenly coats the surface of your lashes, adding smooth volume in just one coat. My biggest pet-peeve with mascara is clumping, and there was not one clump in-sight with these mascaras! Completely clump free! It also lasted all day long on my oily eyelids, with no transfer at all. I found it easy to remove as well, which is a huge bonus. A huge surprise was that it actually also added a lot of curl to my lashes!

I absolutely love this mascara, and can’t wait to experiment with different colour combinations. This is definitely a new staple in my makeup bag!
