Haul: One of A Kind Show '16 Best Finds

I had the privilege of going to the One of A Kind Show, thanks to a dear friend who is also one of the amazing artisans I will be featuring today! For those of you who've never heard of this event, The One of A Kind Show & Sale first started in 1975. The show celebrates handmade excellence, creativity, and craftsmanship. This year it featured over 450 Canadian artisans, all gathered with the booths that they self-constructed at the Enercare Centre in Downtown Toronto. You can find everything from jewellery to food, fashion to stationary, decor to gifts.  The show is hosted every spring and winter. I am a huge supporter of local businesses. Their effort and passion for their work is evident and it translates into quality products.


This year, I have five particular businesses/brands that I would like to give a shout out. I purchased something from each of these businesses! It was such a pleasure getting to meet the owners and hear about the story behind each business.

Eye Post #9: Blue Light Filter Lens Coating

It's standard to have anti-reflection coating, scratch resistant coating, and UV coating on the lenses of your glasses. They help improve the quality of your vision. What's also important is the health of your eyes, and the latest addition to the lens coating family -- the blue-violet light filter -- is focused exactly on that.

Are you someone who:
- Gets headaches/dry eyes/fatigue/blurred vision after looking at a computer screen for a long time?
- Have eyestrain issues?
- Tears up at the bright light in rooms or from your phone screen?
- Has a family history of age-related macular degeneration (AMD)?
- Has trouble sleeping?
... the blue-violet light coating will be very beneficial for you!

Mondor @ Toronto Fashion Week 2016


I was invited to attend Toronto Fashion Week and watch the Mondor runway show. It was such a dream to actually watch those models walk down the T stage. Each individual's sense of style, whether it was a guest or model, was also so interesting and beautiful to see.

Review: Tresemme Volume Revolution Reverse Wash

When I received this package from the post and opened it, the first thing that came to mind was "Cool! Shampoo, conditioner, and styling cream to try out!". When I looked closer at the labels, I was fascinated at the fact that the first step to washing with this collection is to use the conditioner first as specified, followed by shampoo as the second step.
