J & K meet OscarPRgirl Erika Bearman

5 Apr
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!

A Beauty Party at Holt Renfrew with Emily Weiss!

5 Jan

Does anyone else love Into The Gloss as much as we do? If you haven’t checked them out yet, I would run and click on their site asap!. Just be sure to thank us after you’ve fallen in love with the endless beauty features they have on their site…No seriously, we would appreciate the recognition, haha. (seriously..)

Emily Weiss is the founder and creative director of Into The Gloss, a dedicated beauty blog with articles about everything from the best trick on nailing that winged eyeliner, to personal q&a’s with some of our favorite models/designers/editors/celebs/girls next door. Who doesn’t want to know what Coco Rocha has in her makeup bag? Or Kate Moss, or Gisele Bundchen? What is the inspiration behind the makeup used in Vivienne Westwood’s Spring 2013 fashion show? How about Proenza Schouler or Marc Jacobs? Do you want to know? Hello! We do! Emily Weiss is absolutely stunning, and her personality shines through her writing. Did we mention that she was stunning? I envy the short hair, and am seriously considering going super short this year – just putting it out there. (K) We love the style in which Into The Gloss conducts their interviews and features. ITG reels you in with honesty, fantastic photography, and amazing content for the beauty obsessed! Every time we read an article on ITG, we feel empowered, inspired and beautiful. We also find ourselves LOL’ing every now and then too. Beauty can be funny too. (That is, of course, when you aren’t the one with the lipstick teeth at Monday’s morning meeting..)

New Year’s Eve? What to wear with K

22 Dec

Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.” -Oprah Winfrey

Hello all!

I was having a pretty slow night at work, and found myself thinking about my New Year’s Eve plans. Naturally, Julie and I are planning on dancing the year 2012 away and spending the night with our kick ass girlfriends, while toasting champagne in pumps and bold lips. I fly out to New York to spend the holidays with the beau and my family later tonight, and won’t be returning until the 30th, which gives me a day to find the perfect outfit. Now I know what you’re thinking! “What! You don’t have an outfit yet!?” No..I don’t. Listen girls, Christmas was made priority, and I had originally planned on ordering a dress from asos.com, however it wouldn’t have made it here in time; therefore I’m planning on winging it. (Believe me, I am a professional “winger” and I always pull it off beautifully)

Now, if I happen to have time to hit the city and dedicate a few solid hours on finding the perfect cocktail dress whilst in NY, I will take full advantage. However, I do plan on spending a majority of my time at home with my boyfriend and family, in New Jersey as well as Queens and Long Island. Don’t take me for crazy when I say this though, but..I am kind of considering wearing pants for NYE…Haha, I’ve just been so into the men’s wear inspired looks being rocked on the runway, not to mention, most recently on Gwen Stefani on the January cover of Vogue. Plus, might I add that my legs won’t be completely frozen walking out of the club after having a bit too much to drink.(insert flashback of NYE 2012 here…MESS)

Now I know what I face. I’m not as tall, I’m not as long and lean, and I’m not blonde, but you better believe I can pull off a great red lip and a sequin jacket!

What about this tee and skirt combo? I am in love with the edginess! Some pumps, a necklace and lashes! Yes please!

zaralook3I would LOVE to wear a bold all over print such as this one by Tibi, of course flawlessly pulled off by none other than Olivia.

I’m also feeling these 2 looks for NYE. Super chic and streamline, and the shoes do a lot of the talking. I just need a super bold statement necklace to complete these looks.

zaralook1zaralook2Do you think I’m selling out by not wearing a dress? It is going to be 2013 after all. Let me know what you think as well as what you plan on wearing to ring in the new year in the comments

Lots of love

Meeting Emily

9 Dec

Hello!!

I met Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere at her in-store appearance & book signing on Saturday at Holt Renfrew, and it was a great success. I had such a good time, and left even more excited than when I had arrived. Alongside my good friend Simone, we were able to get there about an hour early, get assigned a number from the event co-ordinator on the 3rd floor in the cashmere department, and browse around before getting into a line to await Emily’s arrival. With intricate details such as porcelain teacups, a Victorian-style frame as a backdrop, paired with retro style chairs & a pop of tangerine color – the atmosphere was perfect. Add a few Prairie Girl cupcakes to the mix and us girls were in heaven. (I was anyways, their cupcakes are amazing!)

I am so inspired by Emily, and the success that has come from her site. The dedication she has for her followers and fans really came through as she spent a few minutes with each of us to thank us for coming out and answering any questions we had for her. It was a bit intimidating thinking of what I wanted to say to her. I didn’t want to be redundant and tell her what I assumed everyone else was telling her which was “Hi Emily, I LOVE your blog!”, haha. I did let her know that she was and continues to be a big inspiration to both Julie and myself, and asked her advice on how we can improve, maintain and sustain a successful blog. Her advice was to keep a very clean looking site, with great photos, relevant content, and remember to have fun. I think we can all agree on said advice, right?

A big thank-you to Holt Renfrew on Bloor for hosting this event. It was beautifully executed, and all the staff, as usual, were very accommodating. I am smitten with Emily’s book. I think it’s the perfect gift for any stylish girl on your Christmas list this who loves to entertain, enjoys a good desert, an even better cocktail, and some fab d-i-y projects. (I’m lookin at you pg.152!) 😉

Emily’s blog has been one of my very favorites, long before I started blogging myself. She is a big inspiration to not only me, but thousands of girls and women who love food, beauty, home decor and fashion. Her posts are always vibrant, colorful and full of life. And her witty and bubbly personality shines through her writing. You can always depend on Emily to have a trick up her sleeve when it comes to perfecting those decadent chocolate chocolate chip cookies, or some blueberry crumb bars for brunch with the girls on Sunday.
