Mother nature seems to be hanging on to summer as we are fully into the fall season but the temperature is still in the mid 20’s. Don’t get me wrong though, mid 20’s might be chilly for places but for us Canadians, mid 20s in September is amazing. So in my previous post, I shared my experience at the Marciano Grand Re-Opening Event showcasing their Fall 2015 Collection. This all white cape dress was one of my favourite pieces from the collection. It is one of those beautiful pieces that look effortlessly chic on its own and therefore I kept the accessories minimal.  Oh and you know that “no white after Labour day” rule? Not only is white highly accepted in the industry, it is a growing trend. After all if you follow the rules you’ll miss all the fun.

Review: LANEIGE Water Bank Gel Cream

Hi Everyone! Today I will be sharing a review which I am sure is already blowing up all over the internet. The popular Korean skincare brand LANEIGE has finally made its way into Canada. Their products uses advanced water science to achieve younger and more radiant skin. I've heard really good things about Laneige in general, but never got around to trying it so I was quite excited. 

The Water Bank Gel Cream that I received in my Influenster VoxBox is the 3rd step in their 4-step routine to ultimate 24-hour hydration. 
The order goes as follows
3. Water Bank Gel Cream

The cream claims to be "formulated with scientifically-engineered, skin-perfecting Hydro Ionized Mineral Water that delivers nutrients, hydrates and transforms your skin". The ultra light weight cream has a silky texture and absorbs into the skin quite easily without leaving any sticky residue. I've used it just under a week (day and night) and I do find that my skin looks and feels more hydrated. The cream retails at Sephora for $42 and their entire line is available in stores beginning September 25th. Since I've seen such positive results with the Water Bank Gel Cream, I'll most likely give the other items a try as well.

Marciano Grand Re-Opening

Yesterday I attended the Marciano Grand Re-Opening Event at Yorkdale Shopping Mall hosted by Justine Iaboni of JetSetJustine. Like many private social events that I've attended in the past, the night consisted of music, wine, hors d'oeuvres, a photobooth, and even a lash station. Attendees were able to shop the highly anticipated Fall 2015 Collection first hand with the assistance of a very helpful staff. Although the weather in Toronto feels nothing like it should be at this time of year, walking into the newly remodelled Marciano store you could instantly tell they were set for fall. Besides the classic black and white items, the store was filled with fall hues such as mustard and burgundy. Fringe was definitely a major layer as it was sen on jackets, skirts, bags and accessories. I wish I took more pictures but my SLR died halfway through the night. Overall it was nice to see the collection, Justine was a great host making sure everyone felt welcome and were having a great time. Happy weekend everyone!

Review: Irresistible Me

I hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend so far. Last week i received a set of hair extensions from Irresistible Me which is a growing brand of 100% natural Remy clip-in hair extensions, hair accessories and styling tools. 

Remy hair: a collection method in which all hair strands stay aligned in their natural direction to maintain the natural texture and cuticle direction. They can last up to 3 to 6 months if taken care of.

In the pictures to follow I am wearing the Silk Touch Hair Extensions in 22 inches in 200g. Because I am now of mermaid status I had to order the Platinum Blonde in order to dye and match my hair. The set comes packaged in two sections - one as a sample to give you a better idea of the shade and length of hair and the larger section is the full set. I'm not sure if all hair extensions are packaged the same but I thought that this was a very good idea. This way you know that every set you order is brand new and has never been worn by anyone else. 

So on to the good stuff. The set comes in 10 strands in various lengths. I dyed and and washed them like normal making sure to brush each strand so that it won't get tangled.They also curl and straighten really well, not to mention that they are super soft to the touch. My only negative point is that the strands turned out more purple than my own hair even though the same dye was used. But because the extensions are real human hair I'm not surprised that they took the dye differently than mine. Overall as a non every day hair extension wearer I am very satisfy with the quality and can see the set lasting for a very very long time.
