I’m On YouTube Now!

I'm on YouTube Now

So I’ve been MIA for a few weeks, so what have I been up to? I launched my YouTube channel! This is something I have thought about doing for years, but the perfectionist in me was holding me back. Finally, I decided to take the leap. So far, it has been a pleasure creating, editing and producing content for my channel. But it is no easy job!

Well.ca Pop-Up Shop

Well.ca Pop-Up Shop Toronto

Did you know that Well.ca has a store in Toronto? The online shop has a physical location at Shops At Don Mills which  opened earlier this summer to the public. This is perfect for those who aren’t sure about online shopping just yet, or for those that want to see the products for themselves before buying some more online. I was invited to the VIP Grand Opening of the shop and had a grand time; it was also my little Zo-Zo’s first media event and she (capital L) Loved it!

The Internet In A Blog Post: July 2016 Edition

A Style SoireeI run into super fun, funny and creative things online and sometimes I don’t get around to watching a whole YouTube video, or reading a full article. As a mama on the go, sometimes I wish I had a go-to spot where I could quickly look through interesting and informational items for the week, or the month, without having to browse absolutely everything. This is how I came up with “The Internet in a Blog Post”. Maybe this can be your go-to source for a quick recap of outstanding items found on the internet that are truly worth a watch or read.

How To Fix Broken Powder Makeup

Becca x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Champagne Pop

A terrible and awful accident happened to one of my favourite makeup babies this weekend. My everyday go-to item fell off my makeup shelf in my bathroom and crashed onto my toilet seat. Classy, I know! All because I was keeping my toddler from using the bathroom sink like it was a birth bath at Central Park. As I swung around to grab her, I bumped my holy grail of highlighter, Becca Cosmetics x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop, off the shelf. Watching this baby fall was one of my worst nightmares. When I opened it up I prayed to all the saints that it was all in one piece, but unfortunately it was not my lucky day. Fortunately, I was able to bring it back to life thanks to a little makeup and DIY related knowledge. Of course, I’m sharing this with you because this nightmare can happen to any of us.

Guns N Roses: Not In This Lifetime

Guns N Roses Concert

This mama went to see Guns N Roses live for a fabulous date night this past Saturday, July 16th at the Rogers Centre in Toronto. I am not a fan of Guns N Roses and know very little about them, so I have no idea what I was going to do at the concert. I got the tickets for my husband, who is a HUGE fan, for Father’s Day and thought it would be fun to join him. Let’s keep in mind this was a once in a lifetime opportunity as this is likely their very last tour, ever.

As you know. I am all about female empowerment and the uplifting of each other as women.
