Dior Golden Shock Holiday Collection

Dior has some of the most luxurious packaging that I’ve ever seen in cosmetics. It’s stunning! And feels like such good quality- from the packaging and of course, the contents.

Essie Winter 2014 Collection

I love all Essie polish collections! However, their latest winter collection surprised me.

The shades range from sheer to opaque pinks, and made me think Valentine’s Day rather than holiday. Now, I didn’t try the entire collection, only a couple of the shades.

I found that the collection really came alive when I added a Luxeffect polish. Rock to the Top is a chunky gold glitter that really brought the holiday glamor to this collection! (I also like the look of the shade  jiggle hi jiggle lo, a molten gold.)

Take a Break at the Hammam Spa

The holidays can be a pretty stressful time. All that rushing around to get gifts, maybe working extra hours to meet end of the year deadlines…don’t forget to take care of yourself!

I was getting stressed out, so I headed to the Hammam Spa at King & Spadina. Hammam Spa is a full service spa in a convenient location.

When you step into the spa it feels like you are in a quiet oasis somewhere else.The spa provides wraps, robes, slippers, and everything else you need in order to enjoy your visit. (more…)
