Kikkerland is such a fun brand. I’ve been a big fan for a long time. I first discovered the brand through their travel gear (super handy luggage scales and packable laundry bags have been a lifesaver!). Now that I’m a homeowner, I’m finding fun and useful ways to use Kikkerland day to day life.
This is the tool that I didn’t know I needed until I discovered it. I have a mini herb garden that’s constantly producing basil, oregano, mint, thyme and parsley. This handy herb multi tool is able to chop herbs with it’s curved blade, strip herbs of leaves (I’m looking at you, thyme) and can zest in a pinch. It’s also able to peel citrus and open bottles.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer is one of my favourite TV shows of all time. (In case you are wondering, I’m team Spike.) I’m super excited that “A Night at the Bronze, Once More with Feeling” is coming to Toronto for one night only, on Halloween! This fun night has been brought to us by the Cardboard Sword Collective, founded by Kyah Green and Stephanie Malek, a Toronto-based theatre company. Find out more below.
Things in Sunnydale aren’t as harmonious as usual. Balance has been thrown off kilter when a mysterious force makes everyone in town burst into song and dance, revealing their deepest secrets as they do. It’s up to Buffy and the gang to get to the bottom of this musical mystery before everyone dances themselves to death.(more…)
I love to wear matte lipsticks, but my least favourite part is how drying they can be after a long day of wear. Luckily, Buxom has come out with a new lip powder called Pillow Pout Creamy Plumping Lip Powder. Since it is a powder, the product is a lot lighter. I received the colours Cozy Up, Spoil Me and Kiss Me. This product has a unique sponge applicator, with the powder kept inside the cap.
Urban Barn has a gorgeous fall collection that’s hitting stores now! It’s incorporating everything that I love right now. Dark florals paired with “millennial” pink, geometric shapes, mixed metals and more. Did I mention the incredibly comfy looking chairs? Check it out!
Wearing makeup during the hotter months can always be challenging without the right formula. A freshly applied makeup look can slide right off in under an hour, if the right products aren’t used. If you have oily skin, that time can be cut in half!
Good thing one of my favourite brands, Makeup For Ever, has launched a new Matte Velvet Skin Full Coverage Foundation ($48). The foundation comes in a handy squeeze tube bottle perfect for getting the right amount each time. The foundation comes in 40 different shades, and I tried shade Y455.
TIFF was such a whirlwind! Tons of events, visiting celebrities and luxurious gifting lounges. The celebrities are truly living the good life with the Bask-it Style bag. Instead of having to schlepp a bag of goodies back to their hotels, visiting celebs are gifted a bag of goodies that are sent directly to their hotel.
In the past, celebrities that have received the Bask-it Style bag are: Matt Damon, Jennifer Garner, Julianne Moore, Naomi Watts, Colin Farrell, John Legend, Sir Elton John, Rachel McAdams, Pierce Brosnan, Blake Lively, Olivia Wilde, Tom Wilkinson, Rachel Weisz, Iggy Pop, Princess Charlotte of Monaco, Elle Fanning, Helen Mirren, Bryan Cranston and John Goodman.
Here’s a peak at my favourite items:
The House of Hayla has a new collection that was inspired by vibrant Pantone colour palettes. The Monochrome Collection heels are made from vegan synthetics in a single tone. I love how they look! So pretty. (more…)
