Origins set at Sephora (500 pts!)

So I shop at Sephora more than I'd like to admit and those points just keep adding up over time.  I usually say no when I'm asked to redeem but once in awhile there's something that I just can't pass up! I've been meaning to try the Origins line after hearing great reviews from a few friends and went ahead to redeem the Radiance-Boosting Bests Set for 500 pts. The set has 4 of the brand's essentials for brightening - a balancing face wash, gentle exfoliator, energizing eye cream, and mineral-rich moisturizer. I found the Dermabrasion to be more on the coarse side but I do like the minty scent of the exfoliator and the face wash. The eye cream is very hydrating but the face cream is my favourite out of the set! Not only does it illuminate the skin, it also smell like orange creamsicles!

For 500 pts, you get:
 Origins – Checks and Balances™ Frothy Face Wash (1.0 oz)
Origins – GinZing™ Refreshing Eye Cream (0.17 oz)
Origins – Modern Friction™ Nature's Gentle Dermabrasion (0.5 oz)
Origins – High Potency Night-A-Mins™ Mineral-Enriched Renewal Cream (1.0 oz)

From Summer to Fall

I can't believe fall is just around the corner. This summer has been amazing and the most epic part (my wedding) is yet to come! What have I been up to? I spent most of the summer in Toronto doing a dream internship and am now back in Vancouver to prepare for the big day. While I'm sad that summer is coming to an end, there is a lot more to look forward to!

Fall fashion always excites me and I've already started updating my wardrobe with a few transition pieces. I've decided that this is the year to try new things - from clothes and shoes to accessories and fragrances. On that note, my new Kate Spade New York Live Colourfully fragrance from Hudson's Bay and - it's almost too pretty to use. The floral scent is light and playful just like the brand.

Hope everyone is enjoying the last bit of summer!

ALDO Group Fall 2015 Preview

The weather is finally getting warmer in Toronto! While I am ecstatic about the arrival of summer, I've had Fall on my mind since last week's ALDO Group preview. I had a chance to check out the upcoming collection from ALDO, Call It Spring, and Little Burgundy and added a ton of shoes and accessories to my fall must-have wishlist! What I love the most about the ALDO collection was the revival of 70's retro style done in classic shapes. The Call It Spring collection had the most coveted trends -  the "Buseto" boots  with fold-over plaid and the "Lapole" loafers in patent leather and tassel detail are among my favourites. Last but certainly not least, there was the exciting Misha Nonoo x Aldo Rise collection. I love the modern look of the leather tote with furry accessory and the multi-strap sandals - both are perfect for work and play.

Here are some photos from the preview followed by my top picks!
