2016 TIFF Suite with beautyBOUTIQUE and Phyto Paris
Each year the air is filled with a bit more glitz and glamour as the Toronto International Film Festival rolls into town. You know what that means – big films, big stars, big hair, red carpets, red lipstick – the works! Last Thursday, Emily and I strolled down the trendy streets of King Street West, past the popular little bars and cafes with slinking queues full of beautiful people. We reached the beautiful Spoke Club, and were led up to a charming little showroom with some of our favourite brands. Various stations were set up for hair and makeup, as well as previews of new collections and holiday releases! I’m so excited to share our experience with you today – keep on reading for the deets…
Legs For Days, Darling. Introducing theÂ Silk’n Flash&Go!
My legs are one of my favourite features – I’m quite tall and have very long legs, and I love showing them off! Especially during the summer time – shorts, skirts, dresses… love love love! What’s on the menu? Legs!Â What I hate though, is shaving. I’m not the biggest fan of body hair, and I’ve tried most types of hair removal. Waxes, razors, shaving creams… you name it, I’ve probably tried it. The trouble with these types of hair removal is that you’ll be smooth for a few weeks, but the hair will eventually grow back. Worst of all is that it gets super messy! I’ve been curious about laser hair removal for a while now – the convenience of being smooth without painful cuts or ingrown hair bumps? Sign me up! But it can be quite expensive – I’ve seen laser treatments priced from $1000 and up, depending on the amount of hair and where on the body you’d like to zap!Â When Silk’n reached out to me about their new Flash&Go Express Compact Hair Removal Device, I was immediately intrigued! I have always wanted to try out light-based hair removal (which I will explain a bit more later on!) I tested out the device for two weeks (two treatments), and today I’ll be showing you a mini demo and review
A Week Away…
…In the middle of nowhere aka Canadian cottage countryside aka Muskoka aka Gravenhurst, Ontario. Well, a bit more out of the way, in a tiny little town called Washago. Matt’s family invited me to stay with them for a week at a little cottage they rented from a close friend. This was my second year staying with them, and I was looking forward to a week of relaxing and ~becoming one with nature.~ Unfortunately, things didn’t quite go our way. Keep reading to hear what happened, as well as taking a peek at my favourite summer look with my current go-to makeup products!
