Pretty much flawless

I have 2 personalities, glossyvonne and yvonne. One is blonde and fun and the other is a brunette and kinda studious. 🙂 I am yvonne for 2009 until further notice. Biked to Sephora today on Bloor and wanted to find a nice matte flawless foundation to match my new hue, and after playing around for hours, I was debating the new multishade makeupforever liquid foundation or the smashbox high def one. Then the Laura Geller phenomenal foundation one caught my eye! Cool bottle that swivels shut and keeps the foundation fresh, a nice pump system that works well for me – so it’s amazing! Pretty, sheer-medium coverage and minimal transfer. “Virtually weightless formula blends beautifully to perfect your complexion. Create a flawless canvas and keep it all day.” Laura Geller is famous for it’s brow marker and she believes beauty is every woman’s birthright.  Amen to that! I will let you know how it compares to my all time favourite maybelline dream matte mousse. Any good recommendations?

The Spirit

I really like going to watch movies with bad reviews – probably because I laugh at parts that nobody else do… let’s see what this ones all about!

Loved it, knew i would – eff rotten tomato reviews, i should start my own ketchup reviews haha.. anyway… my favourite line was ‘why does it smell so dental’!
Love the over the top dialogue, creative and artistic scenes, the red knife, the femme fatale roles and the eye shadow on Samuel L Jackson

Christmas at Pacific Mall!


The best kept secret for fashion divas in Toronto and surrounding areas is none other of than Pacific Mall. This is probably the only place thats open on Christmas day in the city and it’s kind of becoming a tradition for me and my family every year 🙂 Get there early, the parking lot will be full and the people will be a plenty! I can’t wait… They call it Hong Kong in Toronto. As some of you know, I am from Hong Kong and moved to Canada at the age of 6. I love how Pacific Mall reminds me of home without the 20 hour flight. Anything you need for your iPhone, BB, dog, cat, boyfriend, mom, dad, bff – Bubble teas, mini egg waffles, sparkly handbags, mini somethings that i don’t need and cosmetics from korea, japan and china. wooweee!
Merry Christmas friends!

Check out how to get to Pacific Mall
