I had the pleasure of attending the UFE Gala which celebrates all accountants who have passed their UFE exam and achieved their CA (chartered accountancy). My best friend Lori passed and had asked me to be her plus one! I was honoured! It was such a great night, meeting new people, eating great food and they also had a band perform! It was glamorous to say the least! I honestly wish I had more formal nights to dress up for! They’re so much fun 🙂
Ps. Are you all loving my extensions? Think I’m going to cut a few inches off, what do you think?

Good morning fashionistas!
The both of us were blessed enough to have the opportunity to meet Erika Bearman aka OscarPRGirl live and in person at her personal appearance this past Tuesday at Holt Renfrew on Bloor St. Both of us are raving fans of Erika and love pretty much everything she does. Erika started off OscarPRgirl when she was approached by CEO Alex Bolen about her blog! They enjoyed the content and thought with social media becoming a strong communication tool, they pitched the idea to Oscar and he loved it, which led to her landing the role of OscarPRgirl.
Erika discussed everything from the social media world and her position as PR director, to all her infamous ‘selfie’ photos wearing Oscar gowns!
Did you know that as the PR director of Oscar de la Renta she receives a clothing package as part of her salary? She even mentioned how Oscar keeps her in check cause all sample pieces are a 24 waist! Haha.
She was so easy going, honest, really approachable and as stunning in person as she is in photos! 🙂
We not only saw her at the event but twice after that! We definitely regret not asking her to go for a drink and continue our conversation from the event. We were cut short because we were truly just having a conversation with her and took a little more time than we expected! (Sorry girls!). We could have talked for hours!
Here are some photos from the event!

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!
After all the beauty prep you received Holt Renfrew also provided this very chic vanity photo booth set up where we got to take photos of our finished looks!
Did I mention there was a DJ?
Oh it was a fanastic and very successful night! I had the best time and the highlight of the night was definitely meeting Emily!
I’ll make this post short and very, very sweet as it was and will be one of the sweetest moments I will have ever had in my life. I had been a little apprehensive with sharing such a personal experience so publicly on this blog, however have quickly realized how important it is for me to have a personal connection with our readers. I enjoy celebrating other’s successes and joyful moments, and with this being one of mine, I thought it best to share with you.
It’s been a little over 2 weeks since the night my boyfriend of 8 years, Corain, proposed to me a few days after Christmas. On December.28th, the both of us drove out from New Jersey (where I’d been staying for a visit) to Long Island, New York. A family gathering on my side filled with aunts, uncles, cousins, kids, and lots of food, warmth and laughs. I had been looking forward to seeing cousins I hadn’t seen in a few years, and Corain was looking forward to meeting family members he hadn’t met before. I have so much family in the states, and it means a lot to me when I have the opportunity to spend time with them. The afternoon quickly turned to evening, and I found myself posing for what I thought would be a picture with my beau infront of my cousins’s beautiful Christmas tree. Corain took my hand and told everyone he had an announcement to make. I couldn’t believe what was taking place..I could see that he was so nervous, but with every word he spoke, I felt that much closer to him, that much more in love with him.
He asked me if I would marry him, and of course I said yes!
On Friday.July.6th, the company I work for celebrated the end of their financial year. The annual “Flight Centre Ball” took place at the Carlu downtown at Yonge and College which is a beautiful event “hall” if you will which has housed some phenomenal events along with breathtaking weddings and even fashion shows and events held here in Toronto. My team headed down in style, and had an amazing time. Flight Centre’s employees work extremely hard all year (I can attest) and party just as hard. They spared no expense to show their employees appreciation with numerous awards, a wonderful dinner and as much alcohol as nearly all 900 of us from across Eastern Canada could handle. An opportunity to get dolled up and have a photo op? Perhaps…. Enjoy
