Topshop Unique’ Spring/Summer ‘15 show - One of my all-time fave high street fashion retailers gets to show a collection as part of an international fashion week, Topshop continues to solidify itself as a fashion juggernaut, capable of ticking all boxes and being all things to all people. I love this new Unique collection as it’s the perfect balance between highly styled wearable pieces and actual high end fashion. Okay now. Keep it coming TS…

I hope you enjoy this clip as much as I did. (special mention of the sheer & sequined evening dresses - had to pick up my jaw off my keyboard!)

Thirsty Thursday Miuzak: Right Now by Mary J. Blige -

Black Crowe.

Runway Report, #FMD edition: ‘Fashion on the Rocks’. Undoubtedly one of my highlights of this year’s festival.

The show, styled by ÉSMM teacher/art director/journalist Andrew McNally, featured the most electrifying trends of the season. This parade could have easily been mistaken for Saint Laurent, ca. Spring 2002 Couture collection: strong looks, vibrant jewelry tones and tantalizing textures were sent down the runway and kept the audience on its toes throughout the show.
Plaids were exquisitely combined with luxurious furs for a chic but effortless feel. Photos credits Matthieu Charrois + Sensation Mode

A #NYFW day in the life of.. Natalie Joos. We get to follow the former
FFI as she takes us to a Charlotte Ronson fitting sesh, gets snapped by streetstyle photogs & sits pretty front row next to Suzy Bubble. You know, just an ordinary day.

It’s my fav month of the entire year, it’s Fashion month and it’s starting in NYC as always. Sadly, I am not there to get in on the hustle and see whats what on the street but I will do my best to bring you a full coverage of what all the other major street photogs & publications are snapping, so check back here on the regular for streetstyle & runway updates right throughout September!

Thirsty Thursdday Miuzak: Won’t look back by Duke Dumont (Shadow Child Remix) -

My August Awesomes!  - Hey ‘dolls! Yep, it’s that time of the month again (no, not that time), the time where I spew out all of my favourite beauty products from the past month into one post! SN: does anyone else notice how time is flying by faster each year? At any rate, let’s jump right into it! 

The Redken powder refresh is the first dry shampoo I have ever tried. Glad I started with that one. The aerosol can works great and makes application easier than most of the messy powder ones I have seen. I have black hair so it’s nice that it doesn’t make my mane look white or gray at all. It has a light minty scent that goes away quickly. It is lightweight, and it doesn’t leave powdery residue on my scalp or make it itch. You know, when the powder product mixes with the oil on you scalp. Another thing that I like about this bad boy is that a little bit goes a long way. Even If you have long hair you won’t need to use half the can. I wouldn’t recommend using it more than 2 days in a row however as your hair will start to look greasy. Plus it is a bit on the pricy side. I actually got this in a goodie bag from a recent event. But I am pretty sure I will run to the pharmacy or even chase it online once I run out of it because overall it is a great product.

Okaayy, so I did just start using this Ultimate 10 BB Crème
by Pantene so I can’t speak for long term…but I do love this baby! My hair is so incredibly soft after only a few uses. it’s more of a misting milk than anything, but it really deals with frazzly ends and dryness. It is light weight and smells really good. When I apply this I don’t need to add any other hair products to my hair because this does a lot. This product basically claims to do ten things (hence its Ultimate 10 name): 
it repairs rough hair,strengthens against damage, provides silky softness & shine, smoothing out the hair, moisturizes it, controls frizz, protects hair against heat (this stuff gives me feather-like curls), manages the hair and tames flyaways. Its easy to use pump dispenses the perfect amount of product. I use a drop about the size of a pea on my hair prior to blow drying and/or heat styling. It leaves hair  shiny and sleek.
This fella has made it into my hair routine and I am pretty sure it is here to stay.

I know, I know I am late to the party for this one. I just jumped in the Olay Fresh Effects {Va Va Vivid!} kit bandwagon. I’m in love. It is like getting a mini facial at home! An absolute joy to use.
It cleans out my pores and leaves my skin feeling silky smooth. I absolutely love the scrubbing brush because it i ot harsh on my face at all! I saw a significant difference in my skin after couple of uses. It works wonderfully for my combination skin without breaking me out. It takes off the shine on my face and leaves my skin feeling so fresh and so clean clean.

After treating my skin to some electric Olay Fresh Effects TLC, then comes the moisturizing step. The Dew Over Hydrating Gel moisturizer work wonders at tackling impurities and imperfections which are common in blemish prone skin AKA me. It sinks into it very easily and my skin absorbs it pretty quickly. It’s hydrating and works great on oily to combination skin. I put this guy on before bed I wake up with my skin feeling noticeably soft and
glowy the next morning. I really love having a moisturizer I feel comfortable sleeping in. It’s lightweight, it smells divine and you cannot beat the price. I just wish it were in a pump instead of a jar.

Continuing my Olay Fresh Effects range lovefest, the Bright on schedule eye awakening cream comes handy for these recent late nights/early mornings seshes I’ve been experiencing. Being an eye cream junkie Olay Fresh Effects Eye Awakening Cream seemed like a good pick up for giving my tired eyes a quickie peek up! It comes with a cooling tri-rollerball applicator. The metal balls dispense the creamy product and allow you to massage the cream under your eyes and the coolness from the roller helps decrease natural puffiness due to lack of sleep. All told, this is a good, lightweight eye cream, but it doesn’t contain anything unique or special for the eye area. Love that it’s lightweight, fragrance-free and that it hydrates without feeling greasy. I did notice a slight improvement under my eye but for some reason I feel like it will only be temporary. Good thing I got two.

I have my days when I don’t wear a lot of makeup and I want to have a subtle pout but still want a little somethin’ somethin’ on there without it being overwhelming. That’s when theLipslicks Smoochies from Covergirl pops in. This balm gives me a little color which I can build up if I were to want a little more. There’s a large variety of 12 fun shades. I got mine in #tweet me, a nice red-pink tint with cool undertones and a soft shimmer. The color really starts to show depending on how many applications you put on. It’s pretty sheer so it’s perfect for a casual day and can reapply without a mirror. It is a good thing considering its low lasting power. It’s still quite moisturizing and lives up to it’s claim as a balm. It has a sweet, strawberry scent but no discernible taste. I love its smooth application and finish. and I bet you will too if you like a slightly-made-up lip look with just a hint of shine. And for the price, you can have one in all of your bags!

Portable speakers are like iPhone cases. There are so many it’s impossible to keep track of. Quite simply, whatever you could possibly want a loudspeaker to look like, you should have very little problems finding one. And y’know, when you don’t think you need something until you actually receive it? The people over at the first-ever iStore were kind enough to gift me with an adorable pocket-friendly, Nude audio's S wired speaker when I attended the digital lifestyle store’s *official launch* party last month. I haven't been able to put it down since. The box contains the portable speaker, a short USB charging cable with a micro-USB port for charging the unit using my computer, a quick start guide, and 2 stickers. Each USB charge packs 8 hours worth of music. NudeAudio is an up-and-coming electronics brand, and it's serious about making affordably priced ($49.99) compact speakers. I love that t has I just hook the cable into the headphone port and I am good to go. Most importantly, though, is the sound. The pulses are great for the physical attributes and size of this unit. (I scared the living life out of my roomie when I first turned it on!)
I just wish it had a wireless/bluetooth feature. Nonetheless, it is still lovely, well designed, stylish, lightweight and high-quality speaker that performs beyond what you’d expect from an inexpensive device. 

Current leader in squeez-e snacks, GOGO SQUEEZ has added new flavors to its range of compotes and I could not pass it up. I fell hard for the apple & pear one; sooo yummy! The soft and tasty flavor of pear makes it one of the favorite fruits among kids and grape is equally appreciated with its refreshing notes). These gluten-free, artificial flavor-free snack ‘n go’s are
simply delicious. And at just 60 calories a piece, they are good for my belly & waist, too! Available in all food chain stores accross Canada, at a suggested retail price of $2.99 for a pack of four 90 g pouches.

That pretty much rounds up my discoveries from last month. Any product here that you have tried?
