[Wear it!] Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation

 

s1925403-main-hero

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard of Rihanna’s new makeup line, Fenty Beauty. The line includes highlighters, primers, and of course, the fan favourite foundation with a whopping 40 shades for people of all colours. The foundation has been getting rave reviews from beauty bloggers, magazines, and everyday beauty lovers alike.

The foundation has medium coverage (buildable to full coverage) with a matte finish, and an oil-free formula. It also comes with 32ml of foundation instead of the traditional 30ml.To ensure that you’ll be matte for the whole day, the foundation is made with “climate-adaptive” technology resistant to sweat and humidity.

I received the foundation in Shade 370 which is a perfect match for my skin. When I first put on the foundation, I found it to be very natural looking on the skin, so it wasn’t very obvious that I was wearing foundation. The matte finish was also very nice, and made my skin very smooth. My favourite thing about this foundation is how long wearing it is.

I can definitely say that this is now my go to foundation when I know I won’t have time for touch-ups. I have worn it now about 3 times for 12 hour days, and to my surprise, when I come home my makeup still looks freshly applied.

I can’t wait see how this foundation performs in the summer months, but for now it will be great for holiday parties!

Fenty Beauty is available at Sephora

Tired of playing your music full blast on your phone? Pick up for a friend (or for yourself) the Sony Extra Bass Wireless Speaker ($69)! No need to equalize the settings on your phone, as the little speaker is powerful and provides the extra bass for holiday parties! An extra bonus, if you have the NFC one touch, simply place your phone against the speaker for instant music! Don’t worry about spilling holiday drinks over your speaker because it’s almost water resistant with a 16h battery life! (more…)

I’ll be a beautiful blue Christmas with this selection. Lights are lit with a cool hue, and blue, white and blue complement each other.

Bright and Merry

Do you love colour? Look no further than the bright collection, popping with neon blues and pinks. This could be perfect to decorate the kids room, or to accent your living room with something a little different! The wrapping paper and pretty ribbons will definitely make the gifts under your tree pop.

Glittering Gold

To me, gold screams Christmas! It’s my favourite collection of the bunch. I love the pretty golden feather garlands, shimmering gold ornaments, and all the different shades of gold, bronze and rose gold. I have a bit of an obsession with rose gold, so I love the ornaments and the geometric vases.

Stunning Silver

I know I said that gold is my favourite, but silver is a close second. The silver collection includes pretty silver star garlands, festive cushions and garlands that say “fa la la,” and beautiful geometric trees. The silver leaf wreath is one of my favourite items of the entire Canadian Tire collection.

Whimsical Nautical Wedding at the RCYC on the Toronto Islands

1-Sat. July 29 2017-1376

I’m so excited to finally be able to share my wedding day with you! It’s crazy how you spend so many months planning the perfect day, and then it’s gone just like that. I had my wedding at the Royal Canadian Yacht Club on the Toronto Islands. I couldn’t have picked a more perfect location. There was just one small problem…the Toronto Islands had flooded earlier this summer, forcing many weddings to be cancelled or relocated. I was so lucky that on the day of my wedding, we had perfect, sunny weather. It was also late enough in the summer that the island had dried out a bit. Phew! (more…)

Don’t Miss TIFF boombox!

Boombox17_insta_1080x1080 (1)

In only a few days, one of Toronto’s hottest events will light up the night. TIFF boombox, an annual fundraiser, is on November 2nd. Each year, the theme is different. This year, the theme is inspired by the classic film, Fame! The Lightbox will come alive with art installations, performances and music all throughout the space.

“Unlike traditional charity fundraisers[…] the goal of Boombox is to take party-goers outside their comfort zone with theatrical, immersive experiences that leave a lasting impression.”

Guests will wander through the building for a choose-your-own adventure of music, art. food, drinks. Fly Lady Di fuses traditional Filipino movement with street dance. DJs Nino Brown & Dre Ngozi will be spinning, and there are a slew of other artists and performers that will keep you entertained. See the full list of artists here.

All funds raised at the event will go to Share her Journey – TIFF’s initiative supporting women in front of and behind the camera. The initiative aims to increase participation, skills, and opportunities for women behind and in front of the camera.

It’s not too late to get your tickets and attend this great event. Tickets are $160, get yours here!
