Powder Puff Event

12 Feb

Lovelies,

I had the pleasure of meeting Emily Weiss from Into The Gloss blog! She was absolutely stunning that night and she is so down to earth and open to everyone!

How did we meet exactly?

Well Holt Renfrew, a leading luxurious fashion specialty department store in Toronto was hosting the Powder Puff event in collaboration with Mercedes Benz. The Powder Puff event was like a beauty parlour for all the beauty fanatics out there!

All guests were introduced to the new launches of Nars and Laura Mercier Spring cosmetic collections, treated to manicures, makeup brush cleansing, oeuvres, consultations by ALL makeup lines such as Chanel, Bobbi Brown, Guerlain, Cle de Peau, Burberry, Dior, and so on. They were many options! Here are a few photos of all the booths set up!

Holt Renfrew had brought in Emily Weiss as their special guest to talk about all the latest Spring beauty must haves of the season! Lisa Tant, former Flare editor in chief, who is now the Fashion Editor at Holt Renfrew interviewed Emily about all beauty essentials for Spring and Emily spoke about her latest obsessions which are bold brows and bold lip colours!

I met Michelle Phan !

22 Jun

When word came of Michelle Phan making an appearance in Toronto, my all-time favorite YouTube guru? I knew I had to be there.
I’ve only been watching Michelle on YouTube for years now! Since the beginning, I have been a true Phan-atic. When I was suffering with really bad acne, I turned to makeup to try to cover it up and make me feel better. I found one of Michelle Phan’s first few videos on YouTube, and I was addicted. She not only helped me with tips and tricks to enhance the beauty I did have but just couldn’t see but she motivates me to this day to really reach for the stars. She went from a student in school filming YouTube videos on her laptop, to this global phenomenon who now is the creator of Fawn Inc. Her own brand for all women meant to inspire, teach, and innovate.
Her makeup tutorials have gone viral, her personality lights up the screen, she is always so positive and she has been and continues to be a true inspiration to myself, women and young girls all over the world. I had the blessed opportunity to meet her at The Bay-Yorkdale today after she was interviewed by Vanessa Craft of Elle Canada. The idea of meeting her was only a dream to me. Standing in a hot line for 2 hours was more than worth it to be able to tell her how much I love her and what she’s done to inspire me. I was SO nervous! I even snagged a hug! Here are some pics ❤

If you haven’t for some ODD reason checked out Michelle Phan or Fawn yet. Check her channel out here
