Stilettos & Rock n Roll,
French designer Thierry Lasry is known for his avant-garde frame design for celebrities such as Dita Von Tesse, Madonna and many more. To launch his latest work, Thierry partnered with Spectacle (located within Toronto’s Distillery District) and had a great launch event showcasing the frames Thierry had designed exclusively. We had fun taking pictures and trying on different frames. See images below.
Summer skin without going under the knife? Sounds good to me! We were honored to be 1 of the 50 invited guests to try out technology from Venus Legacy at Trump Hotel Toronto. We were given our choice of treatment: Face, Neck, or Body to try the device that helps to achieve glowing, tightened skin without injections or surgery that requires downtime.
Each treatment is $350.00 so it was a real special treat to have this complimentary gift from the brand. Doctor’s Romy Sibil and Francine Gerstein of True MediSpa were on hand to give the treatments. Let me start by saying this is such a relaxing treatment as it feels more like a massage and a time for you to relax while you tune up your skin. What I enjoyed about these treatments was the warmth it bought to the skin, making it great to do over the winter months. I had the neck treatment and Telly had the Facial treatment and YES we felt a difference. Of course, if you keep with with the treatment regularly, the changes will be more apparent.

Stilettos & Rock n Roll,

Check out the images below. The displays were all based on the sleep-over theme! Be sure to visit your local Shoppers Drug Mart to pick up some items for yourself!
Hair doesn’t matter, but it does. As women, we constantly talk about it, fuss with it, pull and complain about our hair whether it’s straight, curly, long or short. Us curly haired girls are lucky to get the opportunity to share our stories at CURLS, COILS & COCKTAILS 2014!

guild the lily – To dip a lily in gold…
Los Angeles based celebrity stylist Annie Jagger has made it her life work to make the beautiful things even more beautiful. Taking months to research and filter through fine jewelry and accessory designers Annie Jagger has launched a chic shoppe in Toronto’s Distillery District called Gilding The Lily. Although Annie has styled in both LA and NYC (for Bradley Cooper, stars of Mad Men, Matthew McConaughey, Nicole Richie to name a few), she has a natural attraction to the breezy, simple, refined style of the west coast. Check out the pictures we took here of the shop! We are fans of the earring back pieces, the unusual pieces for the home and the statement pieces surrounded by the rock and roll atmosphere.
Designers include: Jacquie Aiche, Gara Danielle, ANita Ko, Rona Pfeiffer, Irit, Simone Camille and Geometry, Gladys Tamez Millinery and Electric Love.
