    Review – Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens (XBox One)

    I’ll be honest. Prior to watching Star Wars: The Force Awakens, I have never seen a Star Wars movie. I also have never played a Lego game either, at least not in its entirety. So as a newcomer, I was in awe to see how the two franchises came together to weave a well structured game, not only in story, but in game design. Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a beautiful game. From the moment you are thrown into the Battle of Endor, you encounter beautiful, lush environments and vivid colors that surround the area. It’s hard to believe that you’re looking at Lego blocks when the texture quality keeps…

    Review: Tarte Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara

    I initially received a sample size of this mascara at Sephora (100 Point Reward). I used up the sample in less than two weeks and rushed to my nearest Sephora to grab a full-size, only to learn that the store that I had visited was sold out 😓 I immediately went on the Tarte website and to my surprise, there was a sale on 😍 So, I bought two Tarteist Lash Paint Mascaras, without any hesitation, and this is why 😀 I will begin by stating that I already have quite thick, dark and volumous curly lashes, so my purpose, with regards to using mascara, is to add more drama, length…

    Review: Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Drink of H20 Hydrating Boost

    Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Drink of H20 Hydrating Boost ($47 CDN) is a new lightweight gel facial moisturizer that is water-based, packed with marine antioxidants as well as free of phthalates, mineral oil, sodium lauryl sulfates, gluten and parabens!!! The first time I tried a gel moisturizer was two years ago when I was in Hong Kong. I remember being enthralled with the rose scent and wishing  thatI could have re-purchased the product when it finally finished, but I was NOT willing to pay exorbitant customs charges and could not find a local supplier ☹ A few weeks back, when I saw an advertisement for Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Drink of H20 Hydrating…

    Summer skincare picks from The Body Shop

    Yikes it’s already September! But it’s still pretty sunny here in Toronto, and at record-high temperature! Here are some of The Body Shop’s best skincare products for the summer season. When looking for summer skincare, I like to get something lighter because it’ll feel heavy on my face all day in the sun. My skin is already normal to oily, so I feel like it gets overly oily due to the heat. I’d highly recommend these summer beauty picks if you’ve got the same skin type! If you’re not already a huge fan of The Body Shop’s Tea Tree Skincare line – it’s been their number one anti-acne skin care routine since…

    Stylish Sips Cocktails at @TheLondonNYC

    I was invited to The London Bar at The London NYC hotel last week to try cocktails from their “Stylish Sips” menu. The London NYC was the Preferred Hotel of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, so it was only fitting that they offered a special, runway-inspired cocktail list throughout the month of February.   THE BAR Even though MBFW had just wrapped up the week before, there was no shortage of chic and fashionable clientele at the sexy, luxurious bar. It’s the type of place where you could bump into a celeb at any moment, but somehow manages to pull off being welcoming and unpretentious. It’s the type of place that’s super…
