    Event LOVE: Blackbird-The Occult Collection @iheartblackbird

    “Blackbird is about beautiful, simple things. Handcrafted by local designers Regan Hayes and Vanessa Marino, who strive to create a line of jewellery that is well-made, one-of-a-kind and coveted. Their third collection was inspired by the magic and mystery of a witchy woman. She is a powerful and beautiful enchantress adorned in opulent trinkets and charms from another realm.”

    Event LOVE: @Piloti FW14 Media Preview

    We all gathered at The Shore Club for a private trunk show to view the new Piloti Fall/Winter 2014 Collection.  I didn’t know what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised by the style and design of their performance, luxury and casual pieces; and although the collection is for men, I couldn’t help myself from lusting over some of the pieces… My faves! A little about Piloti: Race, ride or stride – Piloti shoes have it all. Every style includes the patented Roll Control™ spherical heel, which cushions your heel as you drive, providing extra control in heel-and-toe downshifting. When you’re walking, it mimics your natural heel shape and supports your stride. Advanced…

    Event LOVE: @Swarovski Spring/Summer 2014 Presentation

    We were invited to the Swarovski Spring/Summer 2014 Presentation on Thursday, and as per usual it was LOVELY!

Spring is a time of new beginnings, renewal, warmer weather, and the prettiest colours, and that’s exactly what the Swarovski Spring/Summer 2014 Collection gave us. In true Bella fashion, once I got all my pictures I took off my coat and all my jewellery and tried on some of my favourite pieces; my hands even hit the “red carpet” decked out in Swarovski bling! It’s such a pretty, colourful…

    Event LOVE: #BlendSomethingFamous with @thefamousgrouse

    We were recently invited to challenge our taste buds, and all of our senses in a fierce competition to recreate Scotland’s finest blended Scotch Whisky, all in the hopes of being crowned the “Master Blender.” The Famous Grouse treated us to an intimate creative tasting and blending session led by Brand Ambassador Marc Laverdiere at The Caledonian on College Street. Armed with nothing but our palates, noses and half a dozen unidentified Scotch Whiskies, we had to recreate  the complex and beloved profile of the Famous Grouse. It was definitely a fun experience, Marc was as helpful as he could be, but let me tell you recreating The Famous Grouse…
