WaySpa: Mani-Pedi at Novo Spa

Categories: Beauty

Last week was World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto. Between my day job, blogging, fashion shows and backstage interviews, I was a well-dressed blur to those around me! I love putting together my looks for the shows but I don’t have time to worry about chipped nails during such a hectic week. I always treat myself to a gel manicure before the shows and this time, I visited Novo Spa for a relaxing spa mani-pedi as part of my WaySpa Ambassadorship.

WaySpa: Mani-Pedi at Novo Spa

I’ve had the pleasure of visiting Novo Spa before for their signature steam bed body treatment, but until now, I’d never had a mani-pedi there. Not only did I get a super shiny, chip-proof, shellac mani that’s still going strong, but I also got one of the best pedicures I’ve ever had.

Festival Style Boho Top for Fall

Categories: Fashion

My friends at American Eagle Outfitters recently challenged me and two blogger friends (Katelyn and Alex) to style their boho tops for the season. When I first saw this lacy AEO Crocheted Tank, I immediately thought of summer music festival style. It would look perfect with denim cut-offs or over a little floral dress, but it can be styled for fall too.

Natural Makeup Look from Pixi Beauty

Categories: Beauty

I had never heard of Pixi Beauty until Target arrived in Canada and brought this amazing UK based beauty brand with them. I had the pleasure of meeting Pixi’s International Makeup Artist, Amanda Bell for the first time a little over a year ago and we’ve kept in touch ever since. We even did a photo shoot together in the summer while she was visiting Toronto, and I visited her backstage at London Fashion Week while I was recently in London!
