Outlet Shopping & a Mini Makeover

I adore finding deals at the outlets, so I was very excited to collaborate with Toronto Premium Outlets for this post and share my best shopping finds with you!

My first stop was Saks Off 5th - where I spotted this gorgeous pink tweed dress. The silhouette is so classic and timeless - it feels like something Jackie O would have worn. The dress was designed by Nanette Lepore, and I paid $90 (on sale from $188) for this dress.

For my next clothing find, I went from classic to completely distressed! My love for distressed jeans is still going strong - and this pair below from American Eagle Outfitters has lots of rips, yet doesn't show a lot of skin, thanks to its sewn-in patches. It also features custom-cut hems, which are very trendy at the moment - and are perfect for showing off your shoes! My sparkly necklace is also an outlet find - I can never pass up a J.Crew Factory store - their statement necklaces are so well-made. I paid $35 for this tortoise-shell & crystal necklace (the original price was $70).

What to Wear When You DON'T Want to Dress for Fall...

I'm having a hard time getting excited for fall. Bloggers around me seem to be on fast forward -  talking about layering, scarves and Pumpkin-Spice-everything! Meanwhile, I'm firmly in denial...and determined to enjoy every last bit of summer!

Palm Print Jumpsuit & How I Wow My Brows

Hope everyone's had an enjoyable holiday weekend! We spent part of it at the beach with family - and will spend the rest of it getting ready for back-to-school. I wanted to quickly share one of my favourite beach outfits - this palm print jumpsuit - it's so easy to pull on over a swimsuit. The green version has sold out, but this print is still available.

I also wanted to feature a couple of products that I've been testing out over the summer. Benefit released a line-up of 9 new brow products in July - and they have been game changers. There's a product for EVERY thing - from brow volumizing fiber gel to nutrient-rich primers - they even have highlighters for brow hairs!

Shortcuts for Looking Your Best at Events

One of the fun aspects of blogging, is being invited to events. From media previews to fashion shows and gala dinners - there's always something exciting going on. Of course, with so many events to attend (and be photographed at) you'll want to look your best - which is where my tried-and-tested getting ready shortcuts come in. As you know - I'm all about minimal effort for maximum impact - so read on for some fun tips!

  • Practice tricky makeup on "regular" days - I'm now able to draw on winged eyeliner and apply false eyelashes within 10 minutes. These weren't easy skills to learn - so whenever I had a bit of extra time while getting ready, I'd put on false lashes or draw on extra liner. Not only did this speed up my application skills, it also helped me get accustomed to wearing these more dramatic looks.

Patio Time

For me, a perfect day would ALWAYS include spending time with friends while eating yummy food. So when Lena invited a group of lifestyle bloggers over for lunch and patio time - I couldn't wait to hang out!
