Top 5 Moments @TheMakeUpShow

The Makeup Show is just around the corner and if you have never been – here are my top 5 moments from the Make Up Show LA ’10 and NY ’11.

So MUCH fun and one of the best places to discover new brands.

5. Meeting your favorite beauty entrepreneurs!  At the Make Up Show LA, I met David Klasfeld – the founder of OCC make up

4. Hello! Liptar for days!  This is so revolutionary – a lipgloss + stain + lipstick + amazingness + vegan. There are always great discounts for products you love and you can try all those new colors at insider prices. I had to pick up a few of these OCC Liptars at the Make Up Show NYC

3. Meeting Youtube Beauty Gurus! I met Elessa from PurseBuzz! Totally love her 🙂 The internet connects people!

2. Connections with industry friends! A leopard never changes its spots… Here I am with photographer Justin Bridges from Tuckedllc. These are glitter tattoos from @xotic_eyes

1. The best thing about the Make Up Show is being inspired to DO YOU! Great make up creatives and everyone is pushing their own boundaries. I love meeting people at this show and there is no shortage of beauty at all!

@NHLAlumni x Hat Trick Wine Launch

“Hockey is Canada… What better way to celebrate this long and rich history than with a great bottle of wine that embodies our pride and passion for all things Canadian”- Murray Marshall (President & CEO Diamond Estates Wines & Spirits)

Diamond Estates Wines & Spirits Ltd and The NHL Alumni Association officially launched the new Hat Trick VQA Ontario wines this week, and we were there to celebrate them. There was what seemed to be an endless supply of Hat Trick wine (the white is my favourite), lots of NHL alumni, many hockey lovers, good food, and we even got to tour the Hockey Hall of Fame. I don’t know much about hockey, but I had an awesome time exploring the Hockey Hall of Fame while I sipped on several glasses of Hat Trick White.

NHL Alumni and Hockey Hall of Fame inductee Johnny Bower was there

From what I hear, this guy is pretty awesome!

About the wines:

The Hat Trick Red: sourced from 100% Ontario vineyards, and a combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Shiraz, to produce a medium bodies blend with characteristics of dark berry fruits and pepper. This wine can be enjoyed on its own or paired with steaks, sausages, even a meaty pizza.

The Hat Trick White: a blend of Gewurztraminer, Riesling, and Chardonnay which produces a refreshing wine, with crisp characteristics of citrus and tropical fruits. Like the red, this wine is perfect on its own, or can be enjoyed with hot buffalo wings, nachos piled high with chicken and veggies, or just some good ol’ chinese food!

Both wines come in 750ml bottles, are only $12.95 each, and are available for purchase at the LCBO.

Thank you to the NHL Alumni Association and Diamond Estates for inviting us!

peace and love


ps: proceeds from each bottle sold will go right to the NHL Alumni Association to support various charitable causes.


Hey Boyfriend: Try @ThirdManEau

The THIRDMAN Contemporary Eau de Cologne fragrance line translates the long standing tradition of scented waters, or Eaux de Cologne, for today: modern formulae with the highest grade of natural essences stored in large bottles and meant to be splashed on liberally, reintroducing a long lost gesture in Fine Fragrance. Both for man and woman, the scents by THIRDMAN, are uncommon and indispensable.

THIRDMAN’s identity is less important than the scents and the new olfactory sensations he spearheads. He is the ghostwriter of a new generation of scents. In an environment crowded with names and brand, THIRDMAN wants to put back the focus on the quality and inventiveness inside the bottle. He creates scents that will become part of the personal journey of the individuals who wear them.

The house of THIRDMAN is founded on a clear principle: to reintroduce the original purpose of a scent. THIRDMAN is inspired by the long standing European tradition and craft of the eau de cologne reimagined for today. Beginning in the 18th century, scented waters made with botanical extracts were used primarily for their beneficial tonic-like qualities. These later evolved into the classic ‘eaux’ which were stored in large bottles and meant to be splashed on liberally.

Refreshing and invigorating, their generous application was as gratifying as their scent. They became an essential part of a daily regimen. THIRDMAN translates their bygone splendor into modern high-end perfumery by designing the indispensable eau de cologne for today.
