By far, one of my favourite brands ever is Montreal based DOT & LIL. A smattering of beauty and bath products, I instantly fell in love with the brand when I was introduced to them many years ago. To this day, the DOT & LIL soaps are the only soaps I will use (the now defunct Sweet Pea Flower soap will forever have a hold on my heart).
What I love about the brand is it’s constant evolution. Over the years, impressive packaging, facial care, and home goods have emerged from the brilliant creator Anne’s mind. Now, DOT & LIL is a must-stop shop for all your bath and body needs … and perhaps some fun vintage finds!
Below the cut are my favourite picks from the Fall and Winter 2015 collection. Keep reading!
Here’s the thing I didn’t know before I delved into this novel. THE NEW HUNGER by Isaac Marion is a prequel / sequel to WARM BODIES (a novel which I have not read but have watched the movie). That being said, I devoured (pun intended?) this novel in an hour and a half.
Well executed, highly original, and strangely endearing, THE NEW HUNGER is a must read for fans of Warm Bodies and the zombie franchise.
What first felt like a terrifying ordeal (900 page book, what?) turned into a wonderful adventure and probably one of my favourite reads of the year. A PERFECT HERITAGE by Penny Vincenzi is my first foray into Vincenzi’s fiction but definitely won’t be my last.
New facial beauty products make me SO happy. New cleansing oils make me esctatic.
When I heard that PALMER’s was releasing a new SKIN THERAPY CLEANSING OIL specifically for the face, I was beyond thrilled. Everything that I love about PALMER’s products in a handy facial oil? Sign me up! The best part? That wasn’t even the end of PALMER’S ‘Must Have’ beauty items ….. with PALMER’s three point oil collection containing SKIN THERAPY CLEANSING OIL FACE, SKIN THERAPY OIL ROSEHIP, and SKIN THERAPY OIL FACE (sound the same but are very different), you are covered from head to toe.

At first, I thought I’d break up this absolutely wonderful and fabulous post. But then I thought … why take away from Alessandra’s brilliant review? Thus, a new chic.toronto.fave was born.
Alright, I have to come clean, I have become obsessed with Essential Oils over the past few months, like full-blown OBSESSED! I was first introduced to the world of essential oils and the amazing Canadian company SAJE NATURAL WELLNESS through our friend Elaine from Toronto Beauty Reviews on Instagram after she posted a photo of the goodies she bought from the Toronto SAJE store opening. A few days after that my co-worker happened to also mention SAJE and how she had just bought a Nebulizer. I commented on Elaine’s photo where she then told me there was a promo for nebulizers (make sure to check the site often for product promos!). So naturally I caved and I bought my first (aromaGem in Chrome Ultrasonic Nebulizer) but certainly not my last SAJE product.
Another Toronto event?
Fall is THE season for the best of the best in Toronto events. Another event I’m over the moon excited about is INLAND’S #MadeInCanada event. This is the place to scope out up and coming designers and finding that one statement piece for Fall.
Last year, I had the fun chance of attending the TORONTO NATIONAL WOMEN’S SHOW … and had an absolute blast! Everything from health, fitness, beauty, and style vendors, I was definitely in my element.
Finally, it’s time for the Fall 2015 TORONTO NATIONAL WOMEN’S SHOW and this lady is an official blogger for the event! Are you interested in attending? Read under the cut!
I find myself more drawn to flexible and comfortable fitness clothes when I’m practicing yoga now – while I used to just rely on loose sweats and my brothers t-shirts, I find myself longing for stretchy pants and comfortable shirts.

Recently, I have been introduced to this excitingly unique brand called SUPERDRY.
Life. Sometimes this little thing called life comes and rears it’s head and all other things take backseat. Welcome to the last month of my life.
The first thing to do in my business?
So terribly sorry for the delay, but I’m back now with a new lit.review for the masses. A fantastic new read that is sure to cure that itch for a good Fall read.
I LOVED this book!
Hooked from the first chapter, SHE’S NOT THERE by P.J. Parrish is such a roller coaster of emotions and events that it’s near impossible to put down.
What are doing tomorrow? How about a little yoga in Yonge Dundas Square? Sign up with YOGATHON today!
