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!

Redness Therapy with Murad Canada

Categories: Beauty,Beauty,Skincare

Fair hair, light eyes and pale skin – my Celtic genes are great, but they also make my skin very prone to redness. I don’t tan, I burn. I don’t blush, I get splotchy. If I get a pimple, it’s a long-term relationship! Finding the correct combination of skincare products is like a chemistry project for me, but I’ve found the most success with skincare targeted towards sensitive skin. The latest weapon in my beauty arsenal is Murad Sensitive Skin Soothing Serum.
