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

Summer Style Gems – SheIn Wishlist

Summer Style Gems - SheIn Wishlist | www.styledomination.com

My gorgeous and unique off-the-shoulder top that I received from SheIn has been a complete hit! I’m so thrilled with it, and apparently so are all of you. Thanks for all of the love!

This weekend is a gorgeous one – nothing but sunshine and warmth (which is totally my jam). I packed away a bunch of winter clothing and took stock of things I “need” for summer to round out my “Summer Style Look”. Continue reading Summer Style Gems – SheIn Wishlist

I’m a sucker for a nice watch. I will never be one of those people who feels that watches have been replaced by smartphones. Since my Dad gifted me with my first watch at the tender age of six – a red and pink Strawberry Shortcake watch with hands tipped in strawberries – I’ve been hooked.

Scarf: Une écharpe – une vie | Hat: Rag & Bone in black | Denim Shirt: J.Crew (similar) | Skinnies: Topshop | Shoes: Converse (similar)| Choker: Aldo (similar)

Easter Chic: Brightening Up The Wardrobe For Spring

While visiting my sister in Toronto a few weeks ago, I popped into my not-so-secret favourite store, Aritzia, and picked up a few items that instantly made me feel less freezing cold and looking forward to spring. I had been on the hunt for a huge, cozy blanket scarf for months to keep me from freezing to death in my office, and Aritzia had more than enough to choose from.

Bag Bliss: Alexander McQueen Heroine Tote

So, it’s safe to say that my Chanel Bag saving is dead in the water. Yes – I’m disappointed in myself. Sigh.

I was severely sidetracked when the opportunity presented itself to own this beauty: the Alexander McQueen Heroine Bag. Continue reading Bag Bliss: Alexander McQueen Heroine Tote

How To Get That Perfect Shot – My Favourite Photos of 2015

I’ve always enjoyed photography. It’s an art form that I’ve had an interest in since I was a kid. There is something about capturing a touching moment, fun times, incredible landscapes or unbelievable happenings that really resonates with me.

The actual camera itself fascinates me too. How a relatively simple little machine can produce such beautiful art is incredible. Some great examples below from the Time Magazine annual photography contest can attest to this. Continue reading How To Get That Perfect Shot – My Favourite Photos of 2015

The Best Accessory Trends For Spring 2016

I’ll admit it.  I’m not the best accessorizer. I like to keep things simple, so you’ll rarely see me donning a giant logo-covered bag, statement jewelry of any sort (I do love a huge cocktail ring though), crazy body chains that look like something out of a dominatrix’s chest of goodies, huge belts, etc. I gravitate towards delicate gold jewelry, pearls and diamonds (of course). When I go shopping, I can usually spot a pair of gold studs from a mile away amidst a ton of in-your-face cocktail jewelry. Continue reading The Best Accessory Trends For Spring 2016

#FeatureFriday: Coralie’s Closet Shares Her All-Star Makeup Team

One of the things I love most about blogging is meeting other like-minded bloggers. Over the past year, I’ve been lucky to meet and learn from some of the most stylish, smart and interesting bloggers that seem a little hidden away in our somewhat stuffy, conservative city. While at home brainstorming ideas for future blog posts, I thought it would be a great idea to feature some of my favourite bloggers on Style Domination. #FeatureFriday was soon born!
