Tom Bachik, celebrity manicurist to the likes of J.Lo, Beyonce and Gwen Stefani, taught us how to do the perfect manicure with brand new Le Vernis a L’Huile by Colour Riche polishes. The class was held at the beautiful Her Majesty’s Pleasure.
“The Perfect Manicure is just myopic details,” says Tom. “Focus on the basics and the better you do the basics the better your manicure looks.” (more…)
It feels like someone flipped the switch from spring to INSTANT SUMMER. It’s so hot in Toronto that I just want to be lying in front of a fan (or a beach, maybe?) all day long.
If you’re looking to cool off like I am, then this post is for you. David’s Tea has a bunch of new iced teas to keep you cool all summer long. The Boardwalk Collection ($28) features 5 sweet teas for summer. (more…)
When Ford asks you if you’re free to go on a mysterious weekend escape, what else can you say but yes? Destination? Classified! Ford planned everything perfectly for an amazing adventure that I’ll be thinking about for a long time!
Early Saturday morning, Ford sent a car to pick me up and deliver me to said secret location. The secret location turned out to be a Ford dealership, where we gathered and met with the other influencers that we’d be spending the weekend with!
As they led up to the big reveal, the curtains were thrown open to reveal….not a car! There was nothing behind the curtain except for a table with envelopes with our team names on them. We frantically opened the envelopes and got our first big surprise of the day. Our next method of transportation…would be by plane! We were all split up into different Ontario destinations by group.
My group (Carson from Ford, Alison from Hip Urban Girl and Andrew the Gate) was going to fly to Sarnia and then drive to Owen Sound. I was pretty excited because if you’ve been following this blog (and you have been, haven’t you?) then you’ll know that I love to travel in Ontario, and haven’t been to either Sarnia or Owen Sound yet! Excellent. Other teams headed out to their destinations of Thunder Bay, Ottawa and Sudbury.
After a short flight to Sarnia, we arrived to see some friendly faces and our shiny Ford Escape waiting for us.
Our 2017 Ford Escape Titanium Edition was ready to go! Our SUV was in the “Canyon” shade and held 5 passengers.
I’ve always found the sea inspiring. Something about the waves are calming, and I love marine life like turtles, jellyfish and whales. I’m also nautical obsessed- an obsession that returns to me seasonally in June.
All these reasons and more are why I’m in love with the ALEX AND ANI Deep Sea Collection for summer! Drawing inspiration from the sea, this collection features my favourite things including: anchors, starfish and jellyfish.
Under the sea everything becomes clear. The seabed,
full of its magic and color, is a place of endless
exploration. Like life, we cannot be sure what we will
find, but it is not always the outcome that counts – it’s
the journey. Expect the unexpected – wonder awaits.
Here are some of my favourites from the collection. The Art Infusion collection features expandable silver wire bangles adorned with original watercolour artwork. Beautiful, right? A seahorse and a sand dollar are available, along with my favourite, the anchor! (more…)
We all love nail polish and having colour on our nails. However, we all want to take care of our nails at the same time. Sally Hansen has released a new collection called Colour Therapy that’s an infusion of both colour and care. What’s different? These polishes have an infusion of argan oil and a blend of primrose oil for ultra nourishment. (more…)
Summer is here! Getting your feet into a pair of Uneek shoes could be the best way to let your feet know it’s summer! I wrote about Uneek shoes last year, and loved exploring all summer long in them. I like to take these shoes hiking, but they’re also great for urban adventures in cities.
