It is definitely a tradeoff, you know the old adage, pain is beauty, this definitely applies to eyelash extensions. They were so irritating to my eyes, I had trouble sleeping with them on and I…

    Wedding Guest Looks

    It is wedding season. This year we only have one wedding to attend but I have quite a few friends who recently got engaged so I have a feeling that next year is going to be a busy one. I really struggle with wedding guest looks because usually, the “it colour” of the season ends up being the colour of most bridesmaid dresses. It is also an event that is heavily photographed, so choosing a dress that is timeless yet trendy can be difficult to navigate. AND of course the most important rule, avoid white and anything that may photograph as white; steer clear of grey, silver, really pale pinks, you don’t…

    Anti-Aging: Cosmetic Procedures to Consider in Your 20s & 30s

    I used to have very limiting views on plastic surgery; I believed treatments were reserved for the rich and famous. It seemed superficial to be overly concerned with your appearance and aging was just a inevitable passage in life. In recent years, cosmetic procedures have become more common place in my life. My dad, who pays $5 to get his hair cut splurged on laser treatments for his rum nose and my mom routinely goes for chemical peels. Even within my own circle of friends, we are compare notes on the procedures we endure to keep us looking our best and to take proper care of our skin.  Before I dive right into…
