BEAUTY: Get Back Your Glow with Vita Liberata Luxury Tan (+ Giveaway) #TrystalTan #VitaLiberata

March is always a month that is highly anticipated, once it hits you know Spring is just around the corner. These days I feel like this is simply hopeful thinking with the recent cold spells we have been having and with less than a week into March and we have already experienced more snow, freezing rain, high winds and loss of power. This is when we can safely say, we’ve had enough of winter! Not only has our hair and skin been damaged and dried out, our motivation had too, and yes we are all thinking the same thing, it’s time to go away, chase down the sunshine and get back that summer glow we’ve all been longing for. Unfortunately, sometimes it’s easier said then done when work and lifestyle get in the way.

Vita Liberata knows exactly what it feels like to need a summer glow, especially during the cooler months, which is exactly why they have launched a revolutionary product that blurs the lines between cosmetics and self tanning, making it easy to apply and extremely natural looking.

This Irish luxury brand is proud to launch Trystal Minerals Self-Tanning Bronzing Minerals and Self-Tanning Night Moisture Mask to Canadian beauty suppliers, lovers and sunless tanning enthusiasts, because we all know the reproductions of indoor tanning beds.

We understand how crucial a luxurious tan can be, it gives you a fresh glow and makes you feel fabulous, which is why we want you to look and feel your absolute best by teaming up with Vita Liberata to give you exactly what you need to gradually build a lasting tan with the Trystal Minerals Self-Tanning Bronzing Minerals all day long and wake up with a raidient glow by morning with the Self-Tanning Night Moisture Mask valued at over $120.

It’s all about having your gorgeous looks last longer with the latest product innovations that will help prime, style and extend your hair. My favourites are REDKEN products that will take you from Catwalk to Sidewalk with these beauty must-haves.

Starting off a new year can definitely be a hectic time, especially when the dreaded visa bills hit your doorstep (bet you thought you could forget those) so we totally understand that getting to your salon may not be top on your priority list, especially if your on a budget.

FASHION: Yorkdale Celebrates Black Friday on November 28th (+ GIVEAWAY!)


I love to shop. But the one thing I love more than shopping itself, is scoring a good deal. As I’m sure everyone knows, there are two days where the sales are huge: Boxing Day and Black Friday. Although the latter may be borrowed from our American friends down south, we aren’t going to let them have all of the fun. We’ve partnered with Yorkdale this Black Friday to get you the latest style scoop and you could win a $50 gift card!


On November 28th, Yorkdale Shopping Centre is launching its full suite of services just in time to for the busy holiday season! This includes special shopping hours (7:00am-9:30pm on Black Friday and holiday hours will begin on Monday, November 17), Dine on 3 reservations, and the best part, the first 100 guests at Yorkdale will receive a $50 gift card (you can also win one below!). Here are a few of our favourite trends and some of the stores we will be visiting.

Style Empire - Trends, True Colours

Forget the blacks and greys, brighten up your wardrobe with a bold punch of colour. Whether it be a belted trench, oversized cocoon coat or wrap coat, these colourful coats are sure to keep you warm all season long.
Yellow Trench, $1995, Burberry London at Holt Renfrew. Pink 3/4 Sleeve Coat, $795, Pink Tartan at Holt Renfrew. Oversized Mohair Coat, $170, Topshop at The Bay. Deep Pink Wrap Coat, $525, Ted Baker.

Style Empire - Trends, Mad About Plaid

We may not be in the highlands but this season we’re seeing plaid everywhere. Whether it’s Buffalo Check, Tartan or Black Watch, plaid can be spotted on coats, tops, pants and accessories. You can opt for just one statement piece or mix-and-match a few.

We’re paying homage to the soldiers and taking charge with military style – without the uniform. Statement pieces combined with bold hardware create a polished utilitarian look to ensure that you’re armed and ready for the season ahead.

Free fruit-infused water and magazines also occupy the third-level food collection, which features 19 restaurants, including four of which are fully-licensed with table service. If your bags get heavy, you’ll want to swing by the RBC Avion Holiday Boutique where you can forget about lugging your coat and bags around. Here you can find coat and parcel check, a concierge service and a VIP Lounge and Café. On Black Friday, shoppers will also receive free gift wrapping for up to three packages. Throughout the holidays, the RBC Avion Holiday Boutique services are complimentary for all RBC Avion cardholders and are available to the public for a donation to charity.

November signals the start of the holiday shopping season, especially with Black Friday on November 28th. We will be celebrating at Yorkdale, mainly by eating and shopping to our heart’s content (or until the credit cards are maxed).
