Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick Set

What it is:
A stunning, limited-edition set with nine mini Studded Kiss Lipsticks that comfortably coat lips with bold color for 10 hours.

What it does:
This collection of stunning hybrid lipsticks makes the perfect gift for anyone who wants to explore and enhance lip looks this holiday season. Formulated with Color Cushion Technology, these lip colors offer incredible 10-hour wear, bold one-swipe application, and enticing velvet-touch comfort that leaves lips feeling supple. Featuring a spectrum of artfully crafted shades that each carry daring color: four bold reds, three statement pops of color, and two everyday classic shades—in a wide range of matte, shimmer, and metallic finishes. Each lipstick is infused with a high-quality formula, including a powerful antioxidant complex of vitamins A, C, and E, and each one offers a hint of uplifting cream brûlée fragrance. This set comes housed in an edgy-chic, black monochromatic casing designed after Kat's own studded bracelet—made to look as rock 'n' roll as the woman who wears it.

This set contains:
- 9 x 0.04 oz Lip shades in Countess (matte hot orange red), Agatha (matte pale peach nude), Adora (metallic golden red), Sexer (iridescent fluorescent pink), Wonderchilde (iridescent neon lilac), Bachelorette (matte reddish fuchsia), Mötorhead (matte black cherry), Lovecraft (matte mauve pink nude), Hexagram (matte blood red)

New GWP At Shoppers Drug Mart

So this is the new GWP that will be starting...... This Saturday I think..... Anyways, its starting soon and free with a $125 purchase from a Beauty Boutique. The gift looks ok, but the it seems far disappointing in comparison to the one that Murale just had. That being said, this fake Longchamp tote looks awesome and might be a reason by itself to pick up some goodies!

Holt Renfrew Autumn 2014 Beauty Bag

The price of these bags seems to keep going up and up, this one being $45 and you get considerably less inside. I think it seems to be a trend though that the Autumn ones have far less in them than the spring ones.

That being said, for $45 and $10 off, I am ok with it because the bag is so awesome. I have actually already used the bag and think the value is there for that alone.


Beauty Shopping For A Good Cause

Shoppers Drug Mart had bags on sale for $10 with all the money going to breast cancer. So really, it was a donation to a good cause and I just happened to get makeup!

First Bag: 

Each one of these items (except maybe the soap) all retail for far more than $10, so this was an awesome bag!

And the second bag:

Everything together ($20 spent):

Never happened in on one of these before, and I really like the concept of bags that are clear so its not a mystery what you are getting inside. Reviews on these products are all to come in later posts!

Toronto Pictures!

I am trying to wrap my head around the fact hat August and September have pretty much passed. How is that even POSSIBLE? I did a big post in May with the highlights of the previous year and an update again in July. It feels and seems crazy to think that two months later so much has happened.

Since there were so many posts I made about my shopping for dresses and shoes and such for my brothers wedding I never even thought to show you all photos of my trip. But I have gotten quite a few requests and will try to do my best.

The big problem I have is family who are NOT going to even pretend to be ok with my posting photos of them on my blog. So there will not be many to share.

But the trip involved these girls thankfully! I know this may look like a photo from my last trip to Toronto, but we are wearing different clothes! We actually just happened to go back to the Pickle Barrel again to eat! It seems like the easy option as its right downtown in the Atrium attached to Eaton Centre, I tend to stay at hotels downtown, and they are ALWAYS willing to take reservations, even on a Sunday morning!

Saturday night we had a private function at Mark McEwan's restaurant Bymark. Here is a shot of me and my younger brother. I am still finding it hard to believe he is now a married man.

This is me in the salon Sunday morning after getting my hair and makeup done for the wedding.

At this point, since the amazing photographer (seriously, if you are in Toronto and need a photogrpaher, this is who you call) I think I can post these photos!

I must say this picture of me dancing with my 82 year old great aunt is one of my fav shots (and moments!) of the wedding.

Julep November Sneak Peak!

So for those of you who were wondering, here is a bit of a November Sneak Peak! The first two shots are from Margaret, and the bottom one from Faye. I thanked them in my last post, but I am so thankful that they were willing to share these shots with me since I was unable to attend the event! 

Julep Holiday Collection Preview & Swatches

Now unfortunately the Julep Toronto meetup was held over Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new years. Otherwise I might very well have scheduled a weekend trip there to visit my brother and sister-in-law. But it was not meant to be. Thankfully the always gorgeous Margaret managed to take some photos for me, and thus for all of you. I am very thankful for that! 

And this neutral palette of all or mainly all matte shades!

And Faye was also wonderful enough to let me share her photos! So here are a few more!
