As far as I’m concerned, Sephora is the candy store for grown women & little else gets me so excited as a shopping bag of new products.

For this reason, I often reach out to friends or people I know who are experts in this field to make recommendations before purchasing. If this sounds like you, you’ll love my new blog series.

Recently, I visited the Shangri-La Hotel for their afternoon high tea service to celebrate a girlfriend’s engagement. Officially my new favourite spot for high tea! Read More
If you’re looking to kick your perfume game up a notch, fragrance layering is your solution. Combining different products creates a truly signature scent that will stay on your skin longer, rather than fading quickly like some perfumes can. If you’re thinking what I did when I was first introduced to this concept- that more than one scent would be overwhelming and you don’t want to send people into shock, I have good news! Read More
For me, one of the best feelings is arriving at a place in the world I’ve never seen before. It’s something about the newness of everything that’s so exciting & keeps me in the moment.
