Cup of Holiday Cheer with Tassimo

Categories: Lifestyle

Every morning I roll out of bed and my first priority is COFFEE. I work from home so there’s no commute to work or coffee shop line-ups, but I can have that cafe-style experience at home with the touch of a button. The Tassimo T65 features the most advanced single serve home brewing technology and tons of beverage options. I love that I can have my coffee in-hand within moments of my alarm going off – and any other time I may need one throughout the day!

Uncomplicated Beauty: Dalish Cosmetics

Categories: Beauty

One of the first local beauty brands I discovered when I started my blog was Dalish Cosmetics. Passionate Founder Melanie Cruickshank first began cooking up natural cosmetics in her Toronto kitchen in 2006 and it’s been an honour to work with her and watch her brand evolve over the years. From the first orders for friends and local trade shows to e-commerce and worldwide resellers – the proof is in the pretty for this Uncomplicated Beauty brand!

Dalish Cosmetics are still made in Canada with the same core values. Anti-oxidant rich makeup produced with locally sourced, natural ingredients without the use of parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals, GMO’s, gluten or sulfates. Your skin will actually benefit from this makeup!

Queen Charlotte Coat by FREED

Categories: Fashion

When I was invited to the FREED FW’14 media preview back in the summertime, I had a feeling I was going to fall in love. Perhaps it’s my natural Canadian instinct to stay warm, but I love coats and I have a LOT of them. As soon as I clicked through the look book, I set my sights on the Queen Charlotte coat with a feminine belted silhouette and a dramatic fur-lined shawl collar hood that can be worn various ways. Putting it on totally sealed the deal…

Queen Charlotte Coat by FREED

This coat is everything. Warm, versatile, incredibly eye-catching and proudly made in Canada. Every time I’ve worn it out, someone stops me to inquire about where they can get it.
