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!
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?
