I find some of the best events of the year happen in the winter months. No exception to that rule, the NATIONAL WOMEN’S SHOW is happening November 7th to November 9th – the ultimate girl’s day out!
chic.toronto just happens to be an official blogger for the NATIONAL WOMEN’S SHOW … so keep reading for your chance to win a pair of tickets for you and friend!
A perfect short story for the Halloween season – THE BOY IN THE CEMETERY by Sebastian Gregory is one of the most intense novels I’ve ever read. A girl who didn’t want to live meets a boy who cannot die: a full review under the cut!
Anyone who reads this blog and follows me on Twiter knows that I love Canadian brand eLiasz and eLLa. One of the first brands I wrote about on chic.toronto, eLiasz and eLLa speak to fans who love a bit of an urban twist on their jewellery. All of their pieces are singlehandedly beautiful, edgy, and gloriously colourful.
Their Violet Edge Necklace is this week’s must have item.
The second annual SPARK SESSIONS is coming up – after the wildly successful first year for the fashion and beauty blogger conference, will you be in attendance? Keep reading for more information!
PEAR SHAPED by Stella Newman has all the makings of being a good novel but falls short. PEAR SHAPED has a good concept…but is actually quite a “miss” when it comes to literary works. A novel where the protagonist’s behaviour is slightly appalling and set’s women back a few notches, PEAR SHAPED by Stella Newman left me with a sour taste in my mouth.
A few weeks ago, I posted about a fabulous new skincare line that really had me raving. AMIE SKINCARE is singlehandedly one of my favourite skincare brands – it’s clean, natural, and efficient.
Lucky for me, I had the ability to have a Q&A with AMIE SKINCARE founder Fiona Parkhouse. Click behind the cut to see….and enter to win a starter kit of AMIE SKINCARE for yourself!
This week’s monday.must is …. JOE FRESH’s PLAID BLANKET SCARFS. This is the item to splurge on for the week.
When I saw this plaid scarf on fellow blogger’s TEACH IN FASHION’s blog, I instantly fell in love. This beautiful scarf can be used as a regular scarf, a shawl, or even a sweater. It’s multi-purpose is phenomenal for the low price of $24.00 CAN. An investment piece that will last throughout the many winters to come!
Big thanks to Alessandra for her latest beauty.review!
I had the opportunity over these past few months to try out LIVE CLEAN’s New Hair Oil Products. The three oils are LIVE CLEAN Exotic Vitality Monoi Oil Leave-In Treatment, Live Clean Exotic Silk Keratin Oil Leave-In Treatment and Live Clean Age Resist Miracle Nutrition Oil.
I’ve never really read a book and felt like I, myself, was the narrator. THE MIGRAINE MAFIA by Maia Sepp changed that. I’ve never connected so wholeheartedly with a novel – my story was her story. And because of that, this book gets a rare 5 star review.
Keep reading for my review!
I’ve been meaning to change things up on the blog for a bit, which includes adding new features. One I’ve been thinking about for awhile is “Monday Musts” – a weekly post about one specific product (could be a movie, book, piece of clothing, beauty product, etc) that need to be on everyone’s ‘must-have’ lists. These are the products that if you were to treat yourself to one thing each week, these items would be it.
Up first on monday.musts is a book that I’ve been personally waiting for for over 2 years. The item you need to treat yourself to this week is LEAVING TIME by Jodi Picoult.
