Spring Accessories (Inspired by Oscars)

Lupita Nyongo
Anna Kendrick
Spending my Sunday night by watching Oscars with my family!! First of all, Neil Patrick Harris is an amazing host and definitely stole the show (and yes "acting is a noble profession!!")

I love watching the Oscars to see the winners, the comedy and epic moments. Most importantly I love watching the show to see the dresses worn by the celebrities. This years, the outfits that captured my attention were by Anna Kendrick and Lupita Nyongo. However, while watching the shows some of the celebrities' accessories made me wonder about the upcoming spring season!!

Here are some accessories that I would like to own for the spring season from Choies:

White Layer Beaded Pendant Headband
Silver Smooth and Leaf Finger Ring Pack

Oversized!! (c/o Firmoo Glasses)


Today I'm reviewing a pair of glasses from Firmoo. In the past, I had an opportunity to team up with Firmoo and once again in 2015 I was able to collaborate with them for another review. They offer so many different types of frames and you can even add your prescription to the pair that you pick. Or if you just want a pair of glasses as a fashionable piece, you can order them without prescription, as well.



"Firmoo is the world's most popular online eyeglasses store. Vision and Fashion the Frugal Way is the ultimate goal of Firmoo, so it has always committed itself to providing customers with high-quality and fashionable eyewear at the most affordable prices. Years of expertise in optical industry enable firmoo.com to offer varieties of prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses in a frugal way and to be the ultimate fashion events guide. Since the establishment of our company, we have served over 300,000+ customers and now we also have 470,000+ fans on facebook. We have always been committed ourselves to offering customers the best quality products at the most affordable prices, 85%~90% lower than that in the brick-and-mortar optical stores. Moreover, all our glasses are free for first-time customers."

The pair of glasses that I choose were the: (P2720)


Recently, I have been in love with big oversized glasses and this particular pair from Firmoo is definitely my favorite ones. In the past few days, I have been extremely busy with all the events and I haven't had anytime for myself to get dressed up in the mornings. However, these pair of glasses has been my new best friend and I have been able to wear them during my busy days. 

Also, to all my lovely followers & readers: Firmoo wants to spread their love to others, by offering free glasses to new customers.  Make sure you check out the fine print to see how the program works (and you do have to pay for shipping).  Or if you're a blogger who is interested in reviewing a pair of glasses, they seem really interested in doing that, so get in touch! Overall, I am in love with these glasses and since it midterms right now I tend to be wearing them more often. Plus, after my midterms are done I will be doing a "Wearing Now" post with these glasses so stay tuned for that post.

Check out the website FIRMOO and tell me what your favourite glasses?

So, spread the word to your friends, tell their friends and tell their friends’ friends about this wonderful offer.
Have fun shopping and I hope all of you have a fantastic day!

Finally an outfit post…
I am in love with this cardigan, due to all the extremely cold weather alerts in Toronto; I have been mostly wearing chunky knits. Plus, I am love in with the Aztec pattern and have been going crazy for this particular pattern. As you can already notice, this outfit combination tends to follow my favourite fashion trend of monochrome with the shades black and white. My goal for 2015 is to wear more colours, however you can never wrong in this combination.

I have decided to divide my Instagram photos:

#BzzAgent & @GilletteVenus Swirl

It's officially February and I will start off this month with a review instead of an outfit post. It's been a while since I did an official review on any sort of product. I have definitely been busy with life, however today on this special month I am back with a review post. 

On Monday, I recently received a BzzKit from BzzAgent.  Here are the two products I received and my honest opinions of them.

Before getting started I want to quickly give a brief intro about BzzAgent

BzzAgent is a program that lets you try and share popular known products and services, often for free. You have to do some surveys, so that they can match you with campaigns that would be perfect for you. When a campaign comes along, Bzz Agent will email you an invite - and if  you are interested in trying out the products then you join, if not you can decline. After trying the product or service out, you write an honest review and share with all your family and friends . The more active you are in the campaign are the more likely you will get more campaigns in the future. Bzz Agent is available in Canada, US and UK, not sure about any other countries. To sign up or get more info about the Bzz Agent - here is the link : https://www.bzzagent.com/


GILLETTE VENUS SWIRL


Venus Swirl Razor
I was pleasantly astonished by the Venus Swirl Razor, when I received for the review I wasn't expecting much for the product. However, it gave a different type of result which gave comfort, and literally it glides down nicely so you can have the perfect legs. The rotation head is the best part, since it’s able to get to all areas with it’s the moisture glide. This is a great piece of equipment that can make shaving easy. I recommend this product, especially for ladies with sensitive skin.

Venus With a Touch of Olay Violet Swirl
Shaving cream or gel is something I am not interested since I am high-sensitive towards them. However, this one was extremely different and I wasn't expecting such results. First of all, the Olay Shave Gel was incredibly moisturizing and it tends to make your skin feel really nice as well as smooth afterwards. The cream is scented with a touch of floral. Definitely a must have in all the ladies cupboards.

*I received these products complimentary from BzzAgent and Gillette Venus for testing purposes.

Five Romantic Places in Canada for a Wedding

So, you are planning to get married in the next 12 months but you don't want to do what everyone else does. Getting married at your family church or the local park is just not what you're looking for. You want a location that is heavy on the romance, perhaps something beautiful and elegant enough to be in the movies. Well, you are in luck. Canada has many great locations for a wedding. It is just a matter of how much you want to spend and what kind of environment you are looking for.

To help get you thinking in that direction, we have put together a list of five of the most romantic Canadian wedding destinations. All of them have local facilities that would make arranging your special day rather easy. So let's get to it.

1. Niagara-On-The-Lake

Not to be confused with Niagara Falls, Niagara-on-the-Lake is the quintessential small-town and one known as the 'Loveliest City in Canada'. It is situated at the junction of the Niagara River and Lake Ontario in the southern portion of the province of Ontario. Niagara-on-the-Lake's quaint streets, intimate restaurants, and boutiques make it a wonderful town for strolling together while holding hands. Interested in seeing Niagara Falls? It is just 30 minutes up river. If you like live theater, there is an annual festival paying tribute to George Bernard Shaw that runs in three downtown theaters, from April through November.

 2. Montreal

The city of Montreal is spectacular no matter when you decide to visit. However, for a wedding, it is even better. There are a number of hotels there that specialize in extravagant and, if you prefer, out-of-the-ordinary weddings that are sure to create lifetime memories. The Hilton Montreal Bonaventure, Hotel Le St. James, and Hotel Omni Mont Royal are just three notable examples. After the ceremony, there are some incredible places throughout the city for spectacular photographs.

 3. Quebec

If you are looking for old-world French charm, it is hard to do better than Quebec. Choose any one of the historic churches in the city for your ceremony or, if you prefer, get married at City Hall. Then spend your days strolling the narrow city streets, shopping at intimate boutiques, or finding that quiet café hidden away from view.

4. Niagara Falls

As kitschy and touristy as it is, Niagara Falls still is one of the favorite honeymoon destinations in all of Canada. There is something remarkably romantic about the Falls and the surrounding area. As for the city's hotels and motels, they have weddings and honeymoons down to a science. A word to the wise though: you can save a lot of money by not going during the peak tourist season. Anything from September through April will get you the best rates.

5. Love, Saskatchewan

Believe it or not, there is a Canadian town named Love. And every year, the post office is flooded with envelopes from all over the world sent by the lovesick in anticipation of the teddy bear and heart cancellation stamp. If you are planning February nuptials, why not? There is no better place to begin your life together than in Love. In fact, you will be able to tell your friends and family for generations that you were in Love once, when you first got married. That will give them something to think about.


Now that you know some of the most romantic Canadian wedding destinations, it is time to start planning. Toronto's Engaged Diamond Studio can help, with custom-made engagement and wedding rings.

So many interesting place just in Canada!! Well, hope everyone have a wonderful week and out of curiousity what is you destination plan for your wedding?

Toronto Fashion Week: Minnie Mouse Presentation

MINNIE MOUSE PRESENTATION

(Spring/Summer 2015 Collection)


Walt Disney’s Minnie Mouse is a funny mouse cartoon character; who has stolen the hearts of many children since 1928 from the show Mickey Mouse. Minnie Mouse’s dressing style was inspired by “flapper” girl from the 1920 with short skirts and bob haircuts. Minnie Mouse’s main outfit over the years had some few tiny changes and today she is featured with a short polka-dotted dress with a matching bow and white gloves. This year, at David Pecaut Square at World MasterCard Fashion Week has teamed up with Disney and Fashion Weekly Magazine was given the honour of attending Minnie Mouse Presentation at the studio on Tuesday, October 21 to view all six of the featured creations. The presentation featured six finalists of the Mercedes-Benz Start Up 2014 to showcase their final garments as part of a new project addition to this year’s Start Up program. This task was to create a new type of garment inspired by Minnie Mouse. The designers who took part in this friendly competition were Valerie Tolila of Vaiken, Eliza Faulkner, Chloe and Parris Gordon of Beaufille, Diego Fuchs and Helder Aguiar of BLAK. I, Laura Siegel, and Sid Neigum. Each six of the designs had their own unique touches, but the Alberta-born, New York-trained designer, stole the show and took the title home with his modular origami style dress.

Toronto Fashion Week: BUSTLE Spring/Summer Collection


The Bustle’s spring/summer collection for 2015 definitely brings up hope for the upcoming New Year. Bustle has brought back some tropical blue tone colors and even some unique patterns for the spring/summer 2015.



Fashion Weekly Magazine was given the honour of attending Bustle spring/summer fashion show as a designer’s guest on Tuesday, October 21. Bustle’s fashion runway show started off with a backdrop of a Mediterranean inspired screen with some café-style tables, blue umbrellas’ and etc. Bustle’s collection easily captured the audiences’ attention since the models donned a casual look sunglasses, headphone and the most amazing part was that some of the models were carrying cameras. The irony was that rather than the media taking photos of the models the models were engaging with the media by taking photos of them. Colors such as teal and basic shades of blues from bright to navy had dominated during the shows and in-between the Bustle collection features some shades of peaches and corals. The patterns featured on the runway mainly consist of bold stripe prints with bold tile inspired prints. Overall, the Bustle’s collection for 2015 featured series colorful, light-weight pieces for the upcoming spring and summer seasons.
