Colour Correction with John Frieda

Categories: Beauty,Haircare

As you know, I’m John Frieda’s #BlondesOfSummerTO Ambassador and I’m thrilled to share the best Sheer Blonde products and styling tips with you this month! Last week, I shared how you can lighten your locks with their Go Blonder line and this week it’s all about maintaining the freshness of your blonde with the John Frieda Sheer Blonde Colour Renew collection.

John Frieda #BlondesOfSummerTo Pt. 2

If you’re like me and visit the salon for professional lightening from time to time, you want to make the most of that colour and money spent. Unfortunately it’s easy for blonde shades to appear brassy or yellow over time (especially if you’re lightening dark natural hair).

Fall Faves at Toronto Eaton Centre

Categories: Beauty,Fashion

It’s hard to say this, but summer’s coming to an end! I’m still hoping for a few more weeks of summer sun but I’m pulling together my fall wardrobe in preparation for cooler weather. When I was younger, this time of year was all about going back to school – shopping for new outfits with the savings from my summer job.

September is my favourite month of the year – warm days without humidity and cool nights. It’s the perfect month for transitioning your wardrobe from summer to fall. I love mixing textures, so when I found these pieces at Club Monaco at Toronto Eaton Centre, I had to put them together!

Little Grey Pass Facial @ The 10 Spot

I’ve been going to The 10 Spot for mani-pedis for years, but I rarely go for facials there. If you’re comfortable with getting your facial in the open and don’t need soothing spa sounds, I promise you, this Dermalogica facial is just as thorough as the experience in a private spa room.
