Mon, 28 Sep 2015 17:30:28 +0000

Toronto has always had a love-hate relationship with its local sports teams (kind of like our ever-changing feelings towards our sky-high stilettos throughout an entire evening), but for the first time in 12 years, the Blue Jays are giving us something serious to cheer about.

Beyond badass: The female action heroes being celebrated at TIFF Bell Lightbox this month

Thu, 01 Oct 2015 16:00:59 +0000

Digesting a full day of shows can be tough, especially when you’re on a low carb diet. I ventured into Paris Fashion Week trying to avoid my favourite thing: croissants.

How to get healthy nails super fast (even if you’re a biter, picker, or peeler)

Tue, 29 Sep 2015 16:00:07 +0000

We have many bad habits induced by nerves: twirling our tresses while talking to our crush, snacking on junk food until we receive text from said crush, and of course, Netflix. Luckily, those, like most bad habits, are rather easy to keep hidden. Well, except one. And that one is waved in front of our faces... Read more »

Wed, 30 Sep 2015 15:00:13 +0000

You can’t get too far into a conversation about fashion without the obligatory, “ but you gotta give it up for Paris, right?” Anyone with even a budding knowledge of style history would know that the city of lights was where it all began—haute couture, Coco Chanel, the New Look: they’re basically part of the...

Milan Fashion Week’s beauty trends were all about celebrating freaks and geeks

Mon, 28 Sep 2015 18:00:22 +0000

There’s always been two prevailing beauty teams in Milan: there’s the ultra sexy bombshells (Versace, Roberto Cavalli, Dolce & Gabbana) and there’s the wonderfully wacky (Prada, Marni, Fendi). It’s obviously much easier to convey the former—you can smoke out an eye, hot roller in some waves, add a strip of fake lashes and call it... Read more »
