Toronto Lights Festival

lanterns1

You know that scene at the end of the movie Tangled, where all the lanterns are released and they are beautiful. I’ve lived my life trying to replicate that (okay, fine. I tried to recreate it for my wedding, but it didn’t work out). Unfortunately, these gorgeous lanterns are banned from most places because they are a fire hazard.

Luckily, there are awesome events like Lantern Fest! At Lantern Fest, every visitor will be able to release their own lantern into the sky! The festival will be held in an open field so that there aren’t any fire hazards. Of course, there is the possibility that the event may be cancelled if the winds are blowing the wrong way, but hopefully that won’t happen. If that does happen, the event will be held again within 3 months.

In the GTA, the event will be held in Ohsweken, Ontario. This is about an hour and 10 minutes away from downtown Toronto, so it’s pretty close! Ticket price includes your own lantern and a welcome kit. Bring your own chairs and blankets and get ready for a magical evening!

Sounds like fun? Readers can save $5 off tickets by using the code HEARTLESS.

Say I Do with Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet

Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet

When planning a wedding, no detail is too small. From the perfect cake to the jaw dropping dress to the something blue, no detail is missed. One thing that is often overlooked in scent! Scent is very important. It just takes one whiff of the right scent to bring back memories of your wedding day. I wanted to find the perfect fragrance to spritz on my wedding day, and the ultra romantic Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet fit the bill! (more…)

[Try it!] Tarte Clay Foundation Stick

IMG_1377

Tarte has a great brand new on the go product, Clay Stick Foundation. I was super excited to try this after hearing great reviews!

The foundation stick is full coverage, and is a powder to liquid formula meaning when it is put to your skin, the formula melts and is easy to blend out. Although it is full coverage, foundation feels super light weight on my skin which is not too common for full coverage foundations. The finish is also matte which is an extra bonus for me and my sometimes oily skin, and can be used as a concealer, or playing around with different shades you can highlight and contour.

The foundation has a flawless great finish which I love, and truly did stay on for the day (Tarte promises 12 hours) and looked great at the end of the night! Although I applied with a beauty blender for more coverage, Tarte also makes a brush called the smoothie blender which is also great for blending out the product if you want medium coverage.

Overall a great product!
