Tea and Tiaras

I had the absolute privilege to attend the second annual Tea and Tiaras event benefiting Starlight Children’s Foundation Canada at the beautiful Fairmont Royal York Hotel in Toronto.

It was the perfect way to spend a Sunday on a warm fall day in the city. It was a girl’s day complete with fabulous decor, yummy treats, inspiring stories, celebrity guests, silent auction & raffle, and of course an unforgettable fashion show with footwear brought to you by Malu.

Gather for the Brunchkins – Lots of Makeup and Good Things!

Gather for the Brunchkins – Lots of Makeup and Good Things!

As you know Gather in Bowmanville hosted ‘Gather For The Brunchkins’ to raise money for Brunchkins which is a great local cause. The event was super successful! Everyone had a great time and tons of money and food donations were raised. I had the privilege of meeting wonderful women and doing mini-makeovers using Arbonne Makeup.

Drama Mama! A Bold Makeup Post

Drama Mama! A Bold Makeup Post

Lot’s of makeup posts lately! I guess it’s because I’ve been so excited for the Gather For Brunchkins event coming up tomorrow night – it’s all I’ve been thinking about. Gather for Brunchkins is an event aimed at raising money for Brunchkins which is an organization providing breakfast and a packed lunch for kids in non-profit housing, in the Bowmanville area. If you’d like to come by tomorrow, it’s not too late! There will be tickets at the door for $20. There will be a beautifully motivational talk given by Julia Grieve, wine, food, goodie bags, and make up tutorials by yours truly! The makeup I’ll be using tomorrow will all be by Arbonne Cosmetics. The great thing about Arbonne is that not only does it work really well, but it feels fantastic on your skin due to the fact that it’s paraben free, phthalates free, 100% vegan, doesn’t contain mineral oils, no gluten, no artificial fragrances, and is PETA approved. Yes, it’s good!

To create today’s look though, I used several different brands, and some new products I was eager to try.

The products I’ve never tried before are the Annabelle Bronzer, and Annabelle pencils – both eye and lip ones, And I have to say I’m pretty impressed. The great thing about a lip pencil, and I don’t mean a lip liner, but one you would use for your entire lip, is that you can’t screw up! Just like when you were little you get to colour inside the lines. Maybe it’s just me but I feel that this way you have more control. The other thing I liked about this pencil is that its rather moisturizing and also doesn’t feel like a foreign body annexed to your lips but rather natural and comfortable. The shade I’m wearing is called Vamp and you can find it here.
