Valmont Cosmetic

It's no secret that I love buying skin care products, and much to my husband's dismay, I tend to be a little bit of a hoarder when it comes to managing how many items I have. My medicine cabinet is overflowing with creams, lotions and potions so when I heard about Valmont, I was naturally curious because I had never heard of them before and I thought I knew all the high end beauty products on the market. I stand corrected!

Gifts On-The-Go with Holt Renfrew on line

I hate showing up at friends and family’s houses empty handed. I know firsthand all the planning and stress that comes with putting together a dinner or cocktail party, so I always love to show my gracious host just how appreciated their efforts are, and there’s no better way to show someone you care then by bringing along a perfect packaged magenta bag or box from Holt Renfrew!

M.A.C. PRO

It's no secret that I have maintained an ongoing going love affair with Montreal.  Our city boasts a uniquely branded palette comprising art, gastronomic restaurants, fashion, and multiculturalism. Even though M·A·C (Make-up Art Cosmetics), was created in Toronto in 1984, its core philosophy of "all ages, all races, all sexes", mirrored Montreal's colourful DNA, making it the ideal location for its first outpost and my post of the week.

Annie Young Cosmetiques (part 1)

Nestled in the heart of Westmount's hip and cozy Vic-Village, you will find Annie Young Cosmetiques.  It is a quiet spot, peaceful, the anti-salon if you will...  Playing on the sound system you will hear the beats of indie artists, not those of a dance club jam or top 40 radio, which are more characteristic of loud department stores and beauty bars.  At the center of this stripped down, soothing space is where you will find Annie Young alongside her daughter Sharleen, a dynamic duo that comprises glamour and class, with a rock n' roll edge; translation: there is something for everyone here.
