My Most Anticipated 2017 Movie Releases

2017 Movie Trailers

In case you didn’t know, I LOVE movies. I love comedies, dramas, international and so many more genres. When my husband and I were at the dating stage, I had never collected so many Cineplex Scene points, as it was our go-to date choice. Even today, we tend to go to the movies on our date night as I have a major thing for movie theatre popcorn too. I always look forward to seeing the new trailer, and 2017 is no different. It’s only January and I’ve already compiled a list of must-see movies to be released in the next few months.

Maybelline Super Stay Better Skin Powder

Makeup review

My daily makeup routine focuses on my skin; glowing and fresh looking skin is my goal. My goal is also to achieve this quickly and minimally. My routine usually consists of primer, cc cream, concealer, and powder to seal. I contour with a powder bronzer and then apply highlighter for that ideal glow. Of course, I finalize with a lipstick of choice. I know this sounds like a lot of steps, but since I have this routine so on point it only takes me about 5 minutes (if I’m uninterrupted by my energetic toddler). A few weeks ago, Influenster Canada sent me an email about testing out a new Maybelline product, and as I am a makeup snob who doesn’t try as many drug store beauty brands as I should, I jumped at the chance.

Glowing & Blemish-Free Skin with MaskerAide

Glowing Skin Makeup Look

I’ve been prepping my skin for my vacation and trying my best to be as blemish-free as possible. Unfortunately, I suffer from stress-induced acne and it sucks! As I’ve been planning for my upcoming vacay, work and mommy life has gotten chaotic and I’ve been trying me best to keep it together. As much as I look like I’ve got it handled on the outside, the small little friends that have popped up on my skin are saying otherwise. Luckily, MaskerAide’s new Spotted! Anti-Blemish Clear Spot Patches came to the rescue!

Tips For Keeping Love Alive

A Style Soiree

Today is my anniversary and I’m feeling inspired. I can’t believe I’ve been married for 3 years…Me! The girl that said would never get married to a human, but rather be “married” to her career and adopt her babies cause I knew I wanted to be a parent one day. How things change. Being married for three years hasn’t been easy, but it has been an amazing experience. I’m no relationship expert, but in celebration of my anniversary, I’m sharing a collection of tips to keeping love alive.

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.

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.

A Poem About Your Lipstick

Yesika Salgado

As you know. I am all about female empowerment and the uplifting of each other as women. Based on this interst and movement, I follow the work of Yesika Salgado, a Los Angeles based Salvardorian poet, who has such a strong way with words. I love most that she writes about Latinindad and female strength. Today, I was catching up on daily updates online and a post from The Huffington Post caught my attention on Facebook. In the Huff Post blog article was Yesika’s latest poem; A Poem About Your Lipstick.
