Design LOVE: CUTMR 2011

I got a sneak peek of CUTMR 2011 when I attended the press preview event at the Gladstone Hotel in downtown Toronto last Thursday.

Wish you were here by Denise Ing and Ken Leung

Never to disappoint, CUTMR featured unique, yet wonderful designs and installations. I also had a lovely time getting to know some of the designers.

Triptych by Mark McLean

The exhibition was opened to the public on Friday, and although I wasn’t able to attend on the weekend; I heard lots of people came out and showed the designers some love. Two thumbs up!

Here are some of my CUTMR 2011 faves!

I love this! Work by Amanda McCavour

Part of the Cyborgesses installation by Jen Prather and Steph Mansol

Chaos Theory by Becky Lane and Chrissy Poitras

Part of Dennis Lin’s installation. It was beautiful!

Design by Patrick Svilans- “…express a particular philosophical concept or life guiding principle using a physical form rather than words… order from chaos, and the negotiation of opposing forces in daily life.”

The groundWORK designers. Can you believe that entire piece is made out of foam?? So nice meeting you guys!

more of the Cyborgesses installation.

Ha! Imagine the Queen working at McDonalds! This is part of Pamila Matharu’s work.

Design by Lubo Brezina and Scott Eunson-This structure was so big I couldn’t take a picture of the whole thing. I think it’s beautiful, and the story behind it is even more beautiful!

Another favorite of mine was the De-spaced room by Kira Varvanina, unfortunately it was impossible to take a picture of it.

Congratulations to the CUTMR team and to all the designers on a job well done!

Thank you for inviting me Jeremy, it was nice to see you again!

peace, love and health

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant

A few weeks ago I received lots of great products from my Beautyfix by Dermstore kit. One of the products I chose was the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant. It comes in a little bottle that shakes out like baby powder. I was so confused on how to use it at first. You wet your hands and put some powder in your hands to make a pasty thick mixture. You’re supposed to rub the paste all over your face (careful around the eye area) to scrub the dirt off your face. The product is made out of a rice-based enzyme and contains skin smoothing and skin brightening ingredients. I love that there is no artificial color or fragrance. It’s gentle enough to be used everyday because of how fine the powder is.

I liked that this product had salicylic acid in it which helps with blemishes and green tea to calm the skin. It really does leave your skin smoother. If you’re looking to really scrub off blackheads and debris that is deeper that the surface I would not recommend this product. I would recommend something with larger or more firm scrubing beads. I’m a huge fan of the powder form. It’s a lot lighter to carry with your if you’re traveling because you don’t have the water weight of the product.

Personally, I like to use this in the morning when I wash my face so I can get a bright smooth surface to apply my make up. Also, I hate using a heavy exfoliantant in the morning because it’ll turn my skin red sometimes. At night after I shower, I’ll use a rougher exfoliant to remove the blackheads and the dirt and oil that’s stuck in your pores. It’s a perfect time to exfoliant in the shower or after because your pores are open from the steam. The Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant is really gentle on your skin and gives your skin a little pick-me-up in the morning when you need it looking good.

Try it out! I’d definitely recommend this to people with sensitive skin.

 

xo, June 🙂
