FREED coat (c/o)  //  7FAM jeans  //  Nine West booties  //  Chanel handbag  //  Chanel sunglasses


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!


Since the cold weather is not yet behind us, I’m super excited to team up with FREED to giveaway a coat of your choice, valued at up to $1,275! 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. The style I’m wearing is called Brandy, and I absolutely love the deep red colour and beautiful leather details.


Entering is easy. Simply use the Rafflecopter widget below. Contest open to North American residents, and closes Sunday, March 15, 2015. GOOD LUCK!

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.





Valentine Outfit Shopping with Mogo

Wednesday, February 4, 2015 18 1



I shop online. A lot. Now that I’ve started a new job, I have a lot less free time to head to the mall to satisfy my shopping addiction. I would much rather shop late at night in my pajamas from the comfort of my own bed. I was chatting about online shopping with a few friends the other day, and I was a little surprised that each of them said that they are a little hesitant to use their credit cards online for fear of their personal information being stolen. That had certainly crossed my mind, but it’s one of those risks that I am forced to take for the convenience of not having to leave my house to buy that gorgeous pink pleated skirt I’ve had my eye on. 
I had never considered the use of a pre-paid credit card until recently. When Mogo reached out to me last month, I couldn’t help but think it was the perfect time (and fit) to partner with them to replace my use of my regular credit cards with their Mogo Prepaid Visa Card for my online shopping. The quick run down on Mogo is that they have no service fees, it’s accepted anywhere Visa is accepted, you can choose from 40 adorable designs, and best of all, it’s free! So how could I say no to that!
Now that I’m back working in an office, I need to add more work appropriate pieces to my wardrobe. I work in a pretty creative and flexible setting, so I get to have fun with my 9-5 look. While I was looking for office attire, I got distracted trying to find the perfect outfit for a Valentine’s dinner with my sweetie. I fell in love with all of these pieces below, and I’ll definitely be using my Mogo Prepaid Visa Card to pick up a few of these gorgeous items.
