Glowing, Hydrated Skin: Avène Eau Thermale Spring Water

Funny story: after finishing a 5K run after work, I realized that I’d forgotten my access pass to the office on my desk. So, no access to the showers for me. I berated myself as I climbed into my car while sweating buckets. Of course, I was meeting a couple of friends at an event in 30 minutes, so I resigned myself to the fact that A) I could either cancel or C) show up looking (and smelling) like a sweaty mess.  Continue reading Glowing, Hydrated Skin: Avène Eau Thermale Spring Water

Fashion Art Toronto Feature: Ryan Alexander, Haute Couture Designer

I remember back in September 2015, stepping into the Stylist Box Stylist Suite that had taken over a sparkling $17-million penthouse at the Trump Tower. The largest living room within in the penthouse had been transformed into a dreamy salon full of evening gowns fit for a princess.  Lining the walls were rolling racks full of exquisite gowns and frilly frocks from the likes of Hillary MacMillan, Christopher Paunil and Narces.

White Out

A few weeks ago, I was invited to the “Meet Your New Jeans With Emily Luciano” event hosted by Topshop Canada and The Hudson’s Bay Company. I hopped at the chance to see Emily Luciano in person, as she is a huge source of fashion inspiration of mine. An Ottawa native, Emily Luciano has grown her Instagram account to a startling 118,000 followers over the course of only one year in addition to a super stylish blog with a readership just as big. Style oozing out of every single one of her pores, I wanted to see this stylish young lady in action. Continue reading White Out
