Roller Lash by Benefit Cosmetics


Psst! There's a NEW mascara in town! Roller Lash by Benefit Cosmetics hits stores tomorrow and will sure amaze gals everywhere. I've long been a fan of Benefit Cosmetics and love that they continue to innovate and produce great beauty products over the years. Their existing lines of mascaras "They're Real" and "BAD Gal" are two of all-time favourites so I was very excited to the Roller Lash. The verdict? The before and after picture says it all.

What I love about Roller Lash:
- It's a lengthening mascara that grabs, lifts, and curls my short Asian lashes
- The long-lasting 12hr formula means it won't smudge and give me racoon eyes
- The formula is also free of Parabens, Sulfates, and Phthalates
- The old-school velcro hair roller packaging is adorable!



As much as I love "Roller Lash", "They're Real" still has a special place in my heart! I recently worked with the team at Benefit Canada to film this fun little video about what it means to be a #RealGal and show my love for the mascara.

On another note, February is almost over and I've been keeping my makeup and other retail spending under control with Mogo's prepaid card! Gotta love this custom card that keeps me disciplined!

Wedding Dress Shopping at Kleinfeld


Our wedding is 7 months away and I just said YES to a dress! Kleinfeld at Hudson's Bay in Toronto is absolutely stunning - the gorgeous open space on the 7th floor of the Bay holds an amazing selection of dresses. My first appointment was last week and I fell in love with a rather unique dress, which also had the stamp of approval by my bridesmaids and friends! I realize that getting a graduate degree and planning a wedding in the same year means major expenses.  I'm sticking to my wedding budget thanks to my planner and by using Mogo Prepaid Visa® Card. I absolutely love their customized cards and this sweet little maracron card will help me stay on track and only spend what I've budgeted!


What I love about the MoGoCard:



  • No fees
  • FREE
  • No credit card aftershock
  • accepted anywhere Visa® is accepted
  • access to Mogo Perks
  • Text to get your balance
  • 40 card designs

    Wedding Inspiration: West Coast Rustic


    Hello 2015! Our wedding is less than 8 months away and I'm so grateful to have Nargess (Fleur de Lis Events) taking care of the planning process. She has been amazing and has introduced me to some of the best vendors in the business. I'm so lucky to have a wedding dream team, including the talented Ellen from Hong Photography who will photograph our big day! These two creative minds  recently teamed up with several other top Vancouver vendors to produce yet another stunning wedding inspiration shoot with the vision of elegance, serenity, and luscious red florals. I love that it shows off the beauty of the West Coast with the mountains and the pacific ocean in the background!
