2.5 years ago, I jumped on the bandwagon and went for the ombré look. After dyeing and bleaching and constantly curling my hair, my little compact styler was the saviour to all the knots and tangles. Earlier this year, I chopped my damaged hair and told myself that I will never put my hair under the same kind of stress again. My hair is on the thicker side and has a slight wave to it, but all thanks to Tangle Teezer, I can now achieve straight, glossy hair without having to use a straightener!
The National Women’s Show was held earlier this month with over 500 exhibitors, ranging from beauty and wellness to food and beverage. There were long lines for freebies and samples, and everyone (most of them were suburban moms I think?) went there to shop. As an urbanite slash millennial, even though I felt out of place, I actually quite enjoyed browsing around and ended up picking up a few beauty products myself!
Juggling between having a full-time office job, doing freelance work, and taking a university certificate course had caused my skin a lot of stress in the past month. Thanks to Flawless by Friday, I was given the opportunity to spare some time each day for a week to lay back and pamper myself a little.
I remember receiving a newsletter from Holt Renfrew about Juice Beauty’s launch event back in early July. About a week after, Gwyneth Paltrow’s appearance at the Bloor Street flagship was all over local media! I’m not one to obsess over organic or natural products, but when their counter manager reached out and asked if I’d like try out some products at their national makeup artist event, I thought to myself – why not?
