Thomas Sabo F/W 2014 preview!

I don’t like to say too much when I post Thomas Sabo photos.  I feel like what I say either doesn’t do the photo justice or distracts from the photos.  So, I’ll get everything out at the beginning and let you all drool over the photos. All sorts of fabulousness came together from all corners of the GTA to celebrate the launch of the new sterling silver Glam & Soul, Karma beads, watches and some new additions to the Rebel at Heart collections.  This was a fantastic event and a kind of ‘tradition’ that I would like to say I’m getting used to because I love it so much! Faulhaber Communications pulled out all the stops.  I have some favorite pieces and I’m sure you do too. I’d love to read what they are, so make sure you post in the comment section below!

L’Oreal Paris Red Carpet Styles! Looks like I’m the last person to post about this!

 

No flashy title needed because the pictures are going to speak volumes.   I’m all kinds of excited for what L’Oreal Paris has up their sleeves!   I’ll also post some photos from the Red Carpet Styles Event I attended in early September.  Take a peek:

Loreal’s  1st Self Adjusting BB Cream cream in Canada, Magic Skin Beautifier, with Beautifying Beads that instantly self-adjust to your perfect shade for a flawless nude look. It delivers multiple beautifying actions: hydrates, corrects, evens and perfects. 

Experience 5 complexion-perfecting benefits in one simple step. The Youth Code™ BB Cream Illuminator instantly evens, illuminates, perfects, moisturizes and protects skin. In one week, tone and texture are improved and skin is healthier looking. Contains broad-spectrum SPF 15. Available in 2 shades.

Make way for the new generation of sensual colour – Colour Caresse by Colour Riche in 12 luminous shades. Formulated with 50% less wax than traditional lipstick, the revolutionary Lightfeel System delivers a feather-light finish that’s never sticky or heavy. No one caresses your lips like this.

The future of eye shadow is here! La Couleur Infallible reinvents eye shadow with enhanced color intensity, a new velvety feel, and 24 hour long-lasting hold.

This lightweight cream helps transform the look of aging skin by working both the skin’s surface and the upper layers of the skin to repair, re-densify and re-firm the look of skin.

Elnett Satin Lumiere Hairspray delivers brilliant shine with a new ultra strong hold formula.  Loreal’s patented light micro-reflectors create an invisible veil at the surface of the hair to capture the surrounding light.

Hair Expertise Nutri-Sleek Precious Oils nourishes the hair fiber and helps to protect it against daily aggressors such as over-washing and over-styling with heat appliances. 

Superior Preference’s new packaging features a new couture look along with consumer-friendly packaging and easy-to-follow instructions for haircolor!

From the event:

…and only because I have been asked, here is a photo of me in my dress.  I love this dress-it’s made by JAX:

And my hair by Romana of TONYC salon (if you want her info, please comment at the end of the post-she’s amazing):

I also took a photo of Sandra’s curls because I was pulling on them as soon as I saw her (she is makeupjunkie19):

Notable items (for me) from the event:

Huge thanks to L’Oreal Paris Canada for inviting me to the event!

I’m super excited to try out these products and looking forward to what L’Oreal has in store for the upcoming holiday season!

 

What are you looking forward to trying for fall? Are YOU red-carpet-ready?

Stylin’ at the Blush Pretty Hair workshop

One of the perks have having talented and creative people in your life is that they will often need a ‘canvas’ to work on.  In this case, the canvas was my hair…..

I have spoken of Blush Pretty workshops before and even guest posted on Alicia’s blog  about my Day to Night workshop!  To be clear, they are quite fantastic!

Guess who’s coming to dinner…..The Robbe & Berking event at William Ashley

You may or may not remember a blog post I wrote a while back about the fantastic window displays at William Ashley on Bloor Street.  I had always wondered who was responsible for them and I had a comment show up recently that answered that question.  It was from the designer herself!  That email exchange lead to me asking (of course) if I could speak to her more about her windows, her design, etc.
