#NYXClassof2016 Launch !

I am so so so excited about the NYX Canada launch today! Last night I attended the #NYXClassOf2016 Prom Inspired event.  It was a beautiful and fun evening.  It was so great to check out the stunning collection.

Finally arrived at the Berkeley Church – so so excited !! 
I’ll take one of everything ! 

Perfect accessory for your little black dress… shimmer eye shadow !

Signing the Grand Opening celebration board!

Cheers to an amazing night !

As a gift, guests were given the CUTEST vegan leather backpack – with their Beauty School Dropout palette, and an adorable colouring book and pencil crayons.  Yes I love to colour my eyes as much as colouring in general so I was thrilled to receive this.

It is launching today at the Toronto Eaton Centre location !!  This is NYX’s 3rd Canadian store!  They are also giving away up to 1K prizes everyday ( May 13, 14 & 15 ) I am sure the launch at the Toronto Eaton Centre today will be  packed full of beauty enthusiasts looking to perfect their summer looks.

Best always,

Target Canada #TOMSforTarget Holiday Collection – warm blankets and warmer hearts & a giveaway!

‘Tis nearly the season for giving and receiving.  Every store has pine cones that smell like cinnamon and  I have seen it almost-snow at least 3 times since November 1st.  The holidays are a time where we can keep warm thoughts and wear cozy sweaters, during long winter nights. Starting on November 16th ,Target Canada will be launching it’s newest Limited Collection #TOMSforTarget.

When you purchase items from the Limited Edition Collection of #TOMSforTarget , you give back something to someone in need.  Like a blanket.

TOMS for Target blanket

Cozy, comfy blanket – just $30 , one for you and one for someone in need 

TOMS  has always been a brand I’ve loved. Any purchase of their shoes mean someone in need also gets a pair. How incredible is that?  Being able to give back feels so much warmer than a fresh cup of hot chocolate.




$15 to light up any room, and feed those in need for 1 week 

Living in Canada, we are so lucky to have what we do.  And being able to give shoes, a blanket , or a week of meals, just for buying something you would anyway – it’s just a perfect way to do something amazing this holiday season.  And that is exactly what you will be doing when you purchase any of the Limited Edition collection.

I was lucky enough to receive this amazing tote at the Target Canada Fashion Week Show in Toronto.


 Can’t wait ’til November 16th for the entire line to launch.

The Collection has choices for Men , Women , Kids, and a Home collection.


Love love LOVE this Poncho – only $28 AND a blanket goes to someone in need

I currently own a black pair of TOMS


Which I LOVE

but now it’s time to open up my closet for some more pieces.


Mini-journals for note-taking , simply $10 , and for a week of meals to someone in need 

And to top it all off, the pieces from the Limited Edition #TOMSforTarget collection are classic.  Worn year-round, and can be styled many ways.


Shoes for the lil’ ones, and a pair for someone in need, just $38

Also, one lucky winner will receive a Limited Edition #TOMSforTarget Prize Pack ! Click here to enter.


I know I will be in line on November 16th –  and I hope to see you there !

Best always ,

#IHeartMusicals : Les Miserables

Musicals are some of the best experiences a person can have.. much better than simply watching a movie.  I told my dad what I wanted for Christmas was Tony Awards tickets.  I was partially joking because they aren’t even on sale yet.  Him, as well as my boyfriend’s parents got us Mirvish tickets which I was SO EXCITED about ! I love a great musical .  The first show this year was to watch Les Miserables.  And wow was it amazing.

Having watched the movie half-way through , I knew that the story would be sad, but I did not expect it to be so moving.  Also I was glad that the character played in the movie by Russel Crowe, Javert , could sing ( yes, I said it ) , and the rest of it, not to give away too much to those who still haven’t seen it , it between a father and daughter, mother and daughter,  and a love triangle which is more of a slanted love slope.  The key themes I found where that of redemption, love and always fighting for what you believe is the right thing to do.  Not for yourself, but for the greater good.

Sadly, there was not a lot at the Merch Booth that caught my eye, so I will have to make my way to HMV or iTunes to pick up the soundtrack as it was quite lovely.  I truly understand why it is the longest running musical of all time.

Best always
