April 28, 2017

With just a little over a month to go, my first adventure trip catches me somewhere between overpacking (as usual) for fear of not having everything I need and under packing for fear of looking like too much of a fashion blogger (like there even is such a thing haha)....

April 16, 2017

Before Yesstyle, my interaction with Korean beauty consisted of mainly nicely packaged sheet masks, which are pretty awesome, but only the peak of the iceberg as I later came to realize. Just in case you didn't know, when it comes to whole other level skincare and beau...

Even though I have lived on the North American continent for close to 7 years now, I'm still a European girl at heart, so when it comes to fashion, I like to stock up whenever I'm abroad. I find that trendiest looks cross the pond even two years after everyone is rocki...

March 23, 2017

I took some time to start to write about my time at Toronto Men's Fashion Week because I wanted to let the steam wear off and the objectivity settle in. With a great concept behind, but an unfortunate confusing execution, TOM brought together Toronto's fashion elite fo...

March 15, 2017

I sort of avoided Toronto in all my years spent in Canada. It seemed intimidating, unapologetically North American and ever restless - all things a European is trained since birth to avoid at all costs. We're more into "il dolce far niente" than "work hard play hard" e...

March 1, 2017

As a self declared queen of neutrals, I have to confess that if there were a colour to cheat on my love of monochrome with, it would definitely be pink. I can probably trace this "affair" back to when No Doubt launched The Return of Saturn and it stayed with me ever si...

February 15, 2017

It's pretty easy to feel stranded when you live in Canada. The cost of travelling is high (it costs me more to get to the airport in Toronto than flying between two countries in Europe) and vacation time is short, so most of the time, you don't dare adventuring...

February 2, 2017

The gods of makeup were kind to me this month (said in a deep voice with gravitas...I'm also imagining an echo somewhere in there). And by gods I mean Bite Beauty, who teamed up with Influenster to bless me with their latest release, the new Bite Beauty Lip Pencil. I g...

January 18, 2017

Canadian winters are long and dark and the only way I can cope with them is through retail  therapy. Which I guess is great for my blog, but maybe not so good for my bank account. Haaaa! We were wondering through downtown when I came across this beauty of a coat in a s...

January 6, 2017

Because I'm trying to stay true to my resolution of keeping less that I don't need, I've ventured into cleaning up my beauty/make-up collection which is starting to take over our living space. Seriously, how does one person pile up so many lipsticks, shampoos (I litera...
