September marks the time of Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). Last month, the city was hustling and bustling with celebrities and film makers as they proudly walked the red carpets and premiered their fine works of art for the first time. I had the distinct pleasure to attend a number of events hosted by Nespresso, including Coffee with Creators and the premier screening of “First Man”, starring our very own Ryan Gosling!
I’m so excited to be teaming up with AVEENO® over the next few months to recommend an array of my favourite products and their newest launches, so be sure to continue to follow along!
Despite my love for Summer, Fall fashion is the most desirable compared to the other seasons. The colours are warm, rich, and unexpected. Fall colours may seem too dramatic or dull to some, but I personally find it luxurious, warm and inviting. The best part is that they pair so well as I transition from my sun-kissed olive tanned complexion.
Have you heard of double cleansing before?
Up until a few months ago, I really had no clue about the benefits and power of double cleansing. I was under the impression that I had a pretty good thing going when it came to washing my face.
What I love most about the pre-Fall season is the slightly cooler evening breeze.
It’s honestly the best time of the year to unwind outdoors with cozy blankets and comfy cushions.
I can’t believe it’s the last week of August! I’m holding onto that last bit of Summer by filling my weekends with road trips and roadside picnics with the help of the 2018 Ford EcoSport. Earlier this year, I had the chance to celebrate the launch of this crossover SUV at the Ford Life Hack Academy event in New York City.
I love living in soft and lightweight fabrics this time of the year, when the sticky humid weather finally starts to level off making it just perfect for comfortable materials such as linen and buttery soft denim. The combination is great for transitional weather as we head into ‘back to school’ season.
As a blogger, the ability to tell a captivating visual story is probably one of the most important aspects of my work. Whether I’m sharing step by step instructions for a DIY project, before and afters of my latest home renovation, or documenting my recent travels, photography is key. I’m often asked where I find ideas for my next projects, the truth is, inspiration can come from any place, any time, many times when you least expect it. That’s why I like to take my camera everywhere I go because I don’t want to miss an opportunity to capture an image that is frame-worthy!
Do you prefer a Girls Night In or a Girls Night Out?
Back in my twenties, I’d make any excuse to have a Girl’s Night Out. I loved getting dolled up and heading out to the latest hot spot in the city. But my, have times changed! Finding a date to hang out with the girls has become a challenge in itself due to busy schedules and competing priorities. When we finally manage to set a date, I much prefer a Girl’s Night In, where we can sit back and catch up over yummy food and drinks, without having to worry about waiting in long line ups or last call!
We are all #BornToMove. But why do we spend most of our time, sitting, standing still, or laying on the couch?!
I was thrilled when I was approached by Dr. Scholl’s a few weeks ago to participate in the #BornToMove campaign to encourage fellow Canadians to bring movement and exercise back to their day-to-day activity. Because after all, us humans are the most happy and free when we’re running, playing, jumping, and getting that adrenaline streaming through our veins, don’t you agree?!
