It's been awhile since I've done a proper round up, so I felt that now was the best time as ever to do one. So much has happened this past month that I couldn't help but share!
One of the most exciting things was the release of the Alexander Wang X H&M collaboration. After waiting in line for abour 6 hours, I successfully picked up all of the items that I had on my wish list and some more. It was definitely an experience to sit outdoors overnight, something I didn't quite enjoy, but I met some very fun people in line and would do it again if the next collaboration merits a line-up! I can't wait to find out who H&M collaborates with next.
Events have become my life (for work that is). In one week, I attended almost 4 of them. And while they're tons of fun to go to, the work that goes into production is heavy and many sleepless nights. A couple of the most entertaining ones that I've been to so far were the pre-media launch part for The Rodnick Band X Peanuts collaboration as well as the S/S 2015 Greta Constantine collection. With many long days and tiring nights, it's safe to say that I'm craving some time to myself.
And time to myself can translate to getting my bros down at Spark Sessions! I had a blast networking with brands and meeting so many Toronto bloggers at the conference a few weekends ago. I learned a lot about the blogging industry and walked away with a huge goodie bag with a ton of products hat I can't wait to try. I smell some fun giveaways coming up soon!
I got my brows done at the Benefit brow bar, and they used the Gimme Brow in medium/deep, which turned out amazing! Apparently this brow gel has fibres that adhere to your skin as opposed to your brows in order to fill in the sparse areas and to create the illusion of a thicker brow. If there's anything that I need, it's definitely thicker brows. I'm loving the strong brow game that Cara Delevigne's got and if I can get a product to mimic that, golden stars to it!
Luckily we were each given a sample of Gimme Brow in our goodie bags, however I wound up with the light/medium, so I'm going to have to run to Sephora in order to pick up the right shade.
I also wanted a new shade of polish on my nails when I was at a CND booth at The Frocktail Party, however I forgot that I had a gel top coat on one of my hands so the technician was unable to remove the lacquer. Fortunately for the fingers that had polish removed, she was able to replicate the design that I had originally used, so everything was fine and dandy. How have you guys spent the past few weeks?
