Mogo Prepaid Visa Credit Card


A few weeks ago, I posted about online Valentine shopping with Mogo, a Prepaid Visa Credit Card. Well, I’m super excited to partner with Mogo for one more post, to share with you how I use my Mogo Card during a usual day about town. Since Mogo has no service fees, it’s accepted anywhere Visa is accepted, and I don’t have to worry about carrying a balance or having to pay monthly interest, it’s an easy and convenient method of payment for those of us who want to avoid credit card aftershock.


(Side note: the cards pictured in these photos were sample cards Mogo provided for photographing. I did not photograph my real card in order to keep my number safe and secure.)

Starting the day with a warm cup of tea.


The Westerly Toronto

Quickly followed by a delicious brunch of Creme Brulee French Toast, and Eggs Benedict at The Westerly.


Chapters Indigo Pillows

Shopping for these beautiful pillows at Indigo. I picked up the striped pillow on the bottom left.



Next stop was J.Crew, where I purchased these summer sandals, perfect for when the warm weather finally arrives.


Colette Grand Cafe Toronto

A quick stop at one of my favourite Cafes in town, Colette, to grab some Amaretti cookies.



Ending the day with pretty shades of purple (the flowers I picked up earlier in the day.)




Thank you to Mogo for sponsoring this post.

Wow, this has been a cold Winter! Some of you may have noticed that I haven’t done an outfit post in quite some time. Sadly, there are several reasons why I haven’t been able to take photos, including starting a new job. But, near the top of that list is that it’s just too cold to go outside! Hopefully the bitterly cold weather is almost over!

FREED is a luxury Canadian coat brand, and has some seriously gorgeous styles to keep you warm and chic. Each of their coats has a removable down vest for extra warmth.

One-Minute Miracle Beauty Products 2015

Tuesday, March 3, 2015 8 0



Each year, the editors of The Kit, test thousands of lotions and liners, masks and mousses, and shadows and serums. And each year, they have the challenging task of creating a list of their top 27 time-saving, game-changing, multi-tasking beauty products that work in 60 seconds or less, and provide “miraculous” results. This year’s “One-Minute Miracle” winners are divided into 3 categories: Game Changers, Impact Makers, and Multi-Taskers.


I’m always on the search for high quality beauty products that deliver “miraculous” and fast results. The Kit sent me a ‘kit’ with 15 of this year’s winning products. I tested out all 15, and selected my top 5 favourite beauty miracles that I now can’t live without. Side note: I also posted my top 5 products from their 2014 list if you want to check out that post for more beauty miracles.




1. Sephora Collection Eye Makeup Remover Wipes. Put a product in a towelette or travel-friendly form, and you’ve automatically peaked my interest. By the end of the day, my eyelids gets really oily, which then starts to fall into my eyes and burn immediately. Wherever I am, it’s time to remove my eye makeup. These wipes are perfect for my purse, at my desk, or in my car. They actually remove all of my makeup without leaving my eyes feeling tight or dry.


2. Benefit Puff Off! Some of you may know that I recently started working for Benefit Cosmetics in Digital Marketing. One of the awesome job perks is that I’ve been able to test out their entire product collection. I have a list of some absolutely amazing products (that I’ll share in another post) but for right now, I’m excited to include Puff Off in my top picks. It’s definitely a little miracle worker for saying bye-bye to puffy eyes. The adorable iron tip is cooling to the touch, and the pinky formula leaves a gorgeous glow. It tightens and and brightens the under eye like nobodies business.


3. Sally Hansen Gel Shine 3D Topcoat. I always have polish on my nails. And by ‘always’, I mean always. You will never find me without polish, so I’m always looking for a long-lasting formula that won’t chip. The glossier, the better. This 3d Top Coat by Sally Hansen adds the high shine of a gel manicure without the removal commitment, and helps extend the length of my mani.


4. Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer. I don’t know if it’s because I’m getting older, or just becoming more of a baby when it comes to cold weather, but this Winter feels extra frigid and dry compared to past years. My skin has been in desperate need of moisture for the last several months, and this facial moisturizer by Kiehl’s has been its savior. I love the creamy but not sticky texture, and it actually moisturizes my skin without making me break out.


5. Kaia Juicy Bamboo Cleansing Cloths. These super-soft, citrus-scented cleansing cloths not only smell delicious and feel soft on my delicate face, but they actually completely remove makeup and dirt, without leaving my skin feeling dry and tight.
