Towards Tomorrow with Toyota

|

This year James and I are on the hunt to purchase a new car. Although the one we have right now works, we know that it needs a lot of repair and at this point it’s easier to buy a new one, something we both will love, than try to get ours fixed.

A few weeks ago I heard about Toyota hosting a Towards Tomorrow Event at Square One Shopping Centre, and we knew this was the perfect opportunity to begin our car search! If you’re also looking to get a new car this summer or are already a huge fan of Toyota, check it out – the event runs until May 31.

Favourites from the One-Minute Miracle List of 2016

|

Ever year I anticipate receiving one of my favourite packages, a curated beauty box from The Kit that they claim are One-Minute Miracles. Being in the beauty/lifestyle space here on the Internet, I'm fortunate that I get to try a lot of these products (and more) throughout the year, but I can definitely see how it would be valuable for readers when they are choosing what to spend their money on.

After spending the last few weeks giving a lot of these items a try, I've narrowed it down to the five that I truly loved and have now added to my must-have beauty + skincare products.

Hello, Brights!

Matte Red for Spring

|

Happy Spring! This could only mean warmer weather is upon us and of course, nothing makes me more excited.

As a lipstick lover, over the past year I've been trying every liquid lipstick I can get my hands on. Recently Anastasia Beverly Hills sent me a few to try, and ladies, I think we have a winner! The colour is true to the tube, glides on smoothly and instantly mattifies into a beautiful, bold lipstick.

Starting Over with CBC's Canada Reads

|

At 6-years-old, my parents told me we were moving to Canada. I didn’t really understand what that meant, or even how to pronounce the country. I couldn’t point out North America on a map. I knew that I’d be leaving all my cousins and friends, and that made me sad.

Day Trip to Isla Mujeres in Mexico

|

Endless Privileges. That's the motto Zoetry Wellness & Spa Resort abides by, and it couldn't be more suitable. We spent a beautiful day in Isla Mujeres and got to experience a whole other side of Mexico.

Golf Lessons at Secrets Playa Mujeres

Never in a million years did I ever imagine myself at a golf course, and here I am, photographed practicing my pose! At Secrets Playa Mujeres Resort in Mexico, we were given the wonderful opportunity to take lessons with a pro instructor.

What's In My Travel Makeup Bag?

|

I always wonder what other people pack when they travel. Out of everything you have at home, how do you know what to take with you and what to leave behind that you know you won't need? Over the last few years I've done a lot of short-term trips (and a few long ones), so I think I've finally figured out a system that works for me.

James and I went to Mexico a couple of weeks ago, to spend four beautiful days at Secrets Playa Mujeres, an all-inclusive resort just 30 minutes outside of Cancun. I was really impressed with how well our room was stocked, full with shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, and even razors and sunscreen! Stay tuned to hear more on the trip later this week, but here is what I kept in my travel bag for our short but wonderful vacation.
