The perfect LWD

Forever 21 Little White Dress

The end of summer might be fast approaching, but that hasn't stopped me from continuing to don my favourite little white dress. 

If anything, it has me reaching for it more and more frequently as I try to squeeze every last sartorial drop out of the season before the temperature plummets. 

This frock has all the elements of a perfect LWD — mainly a form-skimming silhouette and dainty details such as Sicilian-inspired embroidery. 
Wearing it always reminds me of the most memorable time I wore it — on my trip to Silenunte, Sicily last October

It's the perfect LWD for almost any adventure ... including anything I might get up to during the long weekend ahead. 

Happy Friday and have a happy Labour Day Long Weekend, lovelies!

The Body Shop Smoky 2 In 1 Gel Liner: A quick review

The Body Shop Smoky 2 In 1 Gel Liner: A quick review


What it is: A gel liner that doubles as a brow intensifier. The Body Shop Smoky 2 In 1 Gel Liner is enriched with Community Fair trade Marula oil.  


Beauty bonus: A built-in brush makes this product a toss-in-your-bag-and-go item.

Beauty bummer: The teeny, tiny brush can be a little bit difficult to wield with precision. 


Overall: I haven't used many potted gel liners, so dipping into this tub was a bit daunting. But I was pleasantly surprised by the relatively easy application using the built-in brush. 

I didn't try the gel as a brow intensifier, but after seeing the application as an eyeliner, it would take a very light hand to create a natural look. 


Would I recommend: This wouldn't be my first choice simply because of the format, but if gel is your fave, it's a good one!  

Price: Approximately $15 
Where to buy: The Body Shop and thebodyshop.ca

Le Château #MeetTheBlogger recap

Vancouver blogger

I had so much fun yesterday hosting the #MeettheBlogger event in Vancouver.

As a retailer, Le Château continues to surprise me with their on-trend — and often made-in-Canada —creations. So it was such an honour to be asked to host the styling and trend event for a second time. 

A big thank you to everyone who came out on the oh-so-sunny Saturday we had yesterday! (Long live summer!) And congratulations to Linda Peat, the winner of my $200 gift card giveaway. Thank you for stopping by, Linda! 

Here are a few of my favourite shots from the day.
