When I’m not basking under fluorescent agency lighting, my pasty self is usually in a love-hate relationship with the sun. I love summer, but my speckled skin is super-susceptible to sun damage. Having suffered more than my fair share of burns as a kid, I know I’m at an increased risk for skin cancer and have started obsessively applying sunscreen when I’m out for extended periods of time.… Read more
Yesterday, Facebook announced that it was rolling out clickable hashtags. Today, it appears that the first of users are seeing the hashtags live and clickable on their newsfeeds.
When you include a hashtag in a post, looks like this:
Once you click the hashtag, a popup within the page appears showing the hashtag feed and also allowing you to make more posts about the same topic.… Read more
The rumours are true! Today, Facebook announced it would support clickable hashtags. That’s right, folks – your hashtag usage on Facebook is no longer ironic.

Toronto’s been a gloomy place, boys & girls. I’m still dreaming of sunshine and wearing my SPF every day (more on that later this week), though. Nothing gets me more excited for summer than the promise of bright makeup and extra-glowy skin, which is why I’m so excited to share this giveaway with you!… Read more
I feel like I haven’t been completely honest with you. Over the last few weeks, you may have gotten the impression that I’m more artistic than I let on, what with the abundance of DIY nail art and painting party and all. I’m all about the Pinteresting and DIY, but sometimes a girl wants nail art without getting artsy.… Read more
When you go to 20+ weddings every spring, you learn a few things. Kat Langdon is a Toronto vocalist who acts as a wedding singer at some of the city’s loveliest nuptials and tells me she’s been to more weddings than she knows people. I believe it. Kat knows “there’s nothing worse than spending 30 minutes on your makeup only to have it melt off after 10 minutes on the dance floor.”, so she’s offered to share her favourite products and tricks for keeping cool (and pretty!) at a summer wedding!… Read more
Sometimes beauty products create immediate glee and curiosity. For impatient types like Rema from The Burgundy Book and me, leaving a press event generally means digging right into our goody bags the second we’re out the door. When we received these Revlon Nail Art polishes at a recent preview, Rema actually tested them on the streetcar home – they looked that cool.… Read more
Banana Republic wants to take all my money. Year after year, the brand comes out with versatile, covetable pieces I can’t help but buy. I’m the girl with every dress from the Mad Men collections in my closet. OK, not every dress…but that’s not due to lack of effort. The special collections tend to sell out in the first week, some items in the first day.… Read more
There are certain things that set off my skepticism receptors pretty much immediately. Usually it’s things like a friend going on a date with a probably-sketchy guy she met online or an email that starts with “so I found this great article about social media I think you should read”. This time it was a text from a friend saying her birthday party this year involved us going painting.… Read more
If there’s one thing that can perk a girl back up after a 5 AM campaign launch wakeup call, it’s the promise of being the first to get her hands on a brand new Benefit Cosmetics collaboration. Running on far less than my suggested minimum amount of sleep and far more than the suggested daily maximum Starbucks consumption, I dashed to Toronto Eaton Centre’s Sephora location on May 10 to walk the pink carpet and meet Benefit Make Up Master Jose Rivera.… Read more
