So fashion week came to an end on Friday, and as sad as I was to see it go, I was also extremely relieved lol. I could finally give my feet a rest, and my afternoon naps could pick up where they left off… I kid 🙂 I was really excited for this season, I guess missing the last season, had me craving all the wonderful streetstyle, and of course; I couldn’t wait to see what this round of designers had in store for us.

What did I think about World MasterCard Fashion Week F/W2013? Hmmm…. It was nice. Honestly, I was exhausted by day three and there seemed to be a certain je ne sais quoi missing this season. I didn’t bother filming any of the shows after day two because everything was going to be online anyway, and let’s be honest the quality of IMG’s video is way better than mine 🙂

However, despite the exhaustion I loved catching up with and meeting Toronto’s fashionistas, and I’m always inspired by the designers who show their collections. I wasn’t thrilled by majority of the collections, but I’m always inspired by the courage that these designers have to show their collections, to hundreds of very picky and very fashionable fashionistas 🙂

My Favourite shows from Days 3, 4 and 5?

This show was my life!

My highlights this season?

  • I LOVED Korhani, Bustle gave me life, and PAVONI? PAVONI took my breath away!
  • I made a few best dressed and beauty lists, which was kinda flattering I can’t lie 🙂 Thanks to GLOW Magazine, Fashion Magazine, BlogTO, and everybody else that made this lil girl feel a lil special 🙂

  • I got to catch up with my fellow blogger fashionistas who were all looking beyond FLY honey! *two snaps*
  • * The street style. Despite the crazy cold weather, Toronto fashionistas were not going to be swayed, because they BROUGHT it through wind, rain, snow and shine!

There was a great deal of black on the runway this season… I’m a sucker for bright colours and bold prints so all the black leather, fur etc. obviously this wasn’t my thing, but I will say that all the collections were really well made, and the attention to detail was ON POINT. Two very fashionable thumbs up.

I can’t wait for World MasterCard Fashion Week S/S2014 because there’s bound to be lots of colour! Woohoooo 🙂 A big congratulations to all the designers who showed this season, I can only wish I had even half of your courage to follow my dreams!

Until next season 🙂

Stay fly!

Luster Premium White Toothpaste

There is no one in the world who doesn’t want whiter teeth! After I had Zoom! done a few years ago and left my teeth in pain for a week, I have been scared to try any whitening again. But when these came along, it seems safe and gradual so I tried both of these out for 2 weeks.

I recently tried 2 everyday whitening toothpastes from Luster Premium. One of them is white paste and one is a blue paste. They come highly recommended from Allure Magazine so I had to test them out.

The first one I tried is the Power White7 Toothpaste. It retails for $6.99 so it is comparable but a bit more expensive than my usual toothpaste that I use (Tom’s). So the claim is that in one week you will have whiter teeth. It contains active peroxide for powerful whitening results and therapeutic-grade essential oils for whole mouth health. It is also sulfate-free (SLS free) and has an enamel-safe formula with fluoride.

What I thought:
I like that this toothpaste did not foam that much. The peroxide taste is at a minimal and did not cause any irritation to my mouth or sensitivity to my teeth!

The second one I tried is the NOW! Toothpaste – This one is $7.99 and does give you immediate results. Because the toothpaste is so BLUE (just like the tube) it really gives you an ‘instant’ whiter look.

  • Instantly whitens teeth after just one brushing
  • ✦ Contains Bluverite™, a propriety formula that creates the optical effect of whiter teeth
  • ✦ Removes surface stains with daily use
  • ✦ Gentle on teeth and safe for dental restorations
  • ✦ Perfect for when your smile needs an instant boost

What I thought: It works just like the ‘blueish’ lipgloss that makes your teeth look whiter. I think may be a trick of the eye but hey – that works for me!
