I put myself on a self inflicted ” no makeup buy” for 2 weeks. It’s been a struggle and I had to rely heavily on will power but I survived! Now that the ban has been lifted I’m back online creating my wish list. What can I say? I’m a true beauty junkie! So many of these products have been on my radar for awhile and I can’t wait to try them out. With Summer coming I know I’ll be putting these products to good use! As well, be on the lookout for new product reviews on the blog !
Did you hear the news?
Designer Shoe Warehouse Canada is making it’s grand debut in O-town today and I was lucky enough to receive an invite to the media cocktail event last night hosted by Black Book Lifestyle.
What a night it was ! Not only was I surrounded by some of the most influential bloggers and media personnel in Ottawa, but also by hundreds upon hundreds of amazing shoes!! What’s a girl to do but of course squeal with excitement and take pictures!
Now, before I show you drool worthy images of the stilettos I was mingling with last night, let me introduce you to DSW Canada. DSW is a well-known footwear and accessories retailer that offers a wide range of brand name and designer dress, casual, and athletic footwear and accessories for men, women and kids. DSW is now partnered in Canada with Town Shoes Limited. Town Shoes Limited is a well established company with over 60 years of experience in the footwear industry, and with over 200 locations across the country it’s the largest branded footwear retailer in Canada.
Now let’s talk shoes!!!
Walking into the cocktail event, I had a thought ” I hope the cash registers are open! What if I see the perfect pair of heels and I can’t take them home with me?.” Now that’s a fear that I’m sure many of us have had. Finding the perfect pair of heels is like finding the perfect man. You have to scoop them up right away before someone else does! Now, that’s just my giddy humour talking, but it’s true. It’s amazing what a beautiful pair of pumps, heels, wedges, and boots can do to a girl. Drive us crazy until we have them in our possession!
Well have no fear girls, we now have the best selection of men..I mean shoes..in our lovely city!
I hope you take some time out of your day today(March 31)to attend the official opening of DSW located at Train Yards. Doors open at 8 am and the first 200 shoe lovers will receive a $25 DSW CASH CARD!
P.S If you can’t make it in store to shop, DSW.TOWNSHOES.CA is now open !
Happy Easter weekend!
Spring is almost here – so some changes are in order! Not just your wardrobe needs an overhaul but so do your skin, makeup and hair. Let’s start by swapping our winter coats and boots for a light spring jacket and rain boots(ankle boots as well!).I’ve compiled for you an easy 3 step guide that will take you from feeling damp and dreary to feeling beautiful, refreshed and ready for Spring!
At times, drinking 6-8 glasses of water isn’t enough or practical so you need the help of exfoliating products. A cleansing power tool helps to rapidly exfoliate the body to reduce dry patches and leaves skin feeling very smooth.
Cleansing your skin is so important first thing in the morning as well as at night to ensure all the products and environmental toxins are removed from your pores. Choose a cleaner that is right for your skin type.
Using a reliable water based toner after cleansing helps to ensure your skin is receiving a healthy dose of antioxidants for the day.
Weekly exfoliating of the skin is necessary! Since many of us can’t make it to the aesthetician on a weekly basis, it’s great to rely on a solid BHA exfoliating product that improves skins texture, appearance and gets rid of blackheads. As well a decent BHA product will help with collagen production.
A serum loaded with antioxidants will help to firm, brighten and hydrate your skin all day.
If dryness around the eyes during allergy season is a factor then adding an eye cream to your Spring prep routine will definitely help. An effective eye cream will hydrate the under eye and reduce puffiness.
There is no excuse for leaving the house without sunscreen. Sunscreen is the #1 defence against ageing skin and skin cancer.
It’s that time of week again where I share all my internet loves and obsessions. I hope you enjoy!
P.S. Spring in 7 days YEAH!
