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!
My outfit for the event: top (c/o) / jeans / bag

It was such a lovely afternoon - we tried new dishes and learned how to prepare some of the recipes. If you plan on entertaining this summer, read on for two easy-to-make appetizers! We started off with this fresh fruit and dip combo:

What I Packed for a Week in London

My husband is from England, and we fly there once a year to visit family. I lived in London for 8 years, so it's always a treat to go back and revisit my favourite places - and share them with my children.

We usually split our trip between two hotels - one in Central London and one closer to family, so we always try to pack light. I find the best way to avoid over-packing is to plan EVERY single outfit I'm going to wear - from clothes to shoes and accessories.

Meeting a BAWSE

Do you have trouble finding the right top to wear with a flared midi skirt? While crop tops look amazing, they're not something I'm comfortable wearing (A peek of my midriff? No thank you!). This black bodysuit is a fun alternative. It's fitted, so it contrasts nicely with the flared silhouette. And because it's a bodysuit, you don't have to worry about it bunching up at the waist.

The One That Nearly Got Away...

I'm so upset with Joe Fresh - and here's why. FIRST - they design the PERFECT white lace dress...just the right length...with short sleeves...the prettiest lace trimming AND priced at only $49. THEN - they send this dress to various Canadian fashion bloggers - who proceed to share gorgeous outfit pictures on Instagram.

All of this may sound good...then why am I so upset? Because Joe Fresh didn't make enough of this dress! It was just SOOOOO hard to find, I had friends and family all over Canada looking for it.
