• Work-Life Balance

  • If you saw the above, "Work-Life Balance", and you are sitting there thinking to yourself: what is that? Something needs to change. The world is a crazy and unpredictable place. Time goes faster and faster every single year, and as you get older (and wiser), it is most important to stop for a moment, breathe, enjoy, live, love and laugh, in order to really soak up the very best parts of life. [...]
  • Schools Out For Summer

  • When you read that title... sing it. Sing it like a crazy, summer-lovin', Alice Cooper-esque, wild child. Because: why not? It's summer! And Derek Cardigan x Clearly Contacts have done it again. Recently, Clearly Contacts sent me a pair of the new fluoro Derek Cardigan frames, and they have quickly become a summer staple. Adding a touch of flair and a pastel brightness to my outfits, I am spo[...]

  • CFDA X RiRi

  • While I sat here Googling images of the outfits from last night's CFDA awards... it is impossible to miss Rihanna. Last night, at The Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards, RiRi stole the show. Quite rightly, she was the winner of the coveted, "Fashion Icon" award, and that dress! I mean, lack of dress! Or whatever... she looked rockin'. People can say what they want, have their opinio[...]

  • Triumph: Shaping Women Since 1886

  • 1886... you hear that?! That is a long time! Needless-to-say, I was honoured when their team reached out to me for a fitting of their iconic Amourette collection. It was an easy, over-the-phone fitting, that allowed for me to learn exactly how to properly measure myself for a bra (and break my disillusionment that I was a size X versus a size ...x). Triumph recently discovered that 30% of w[...]
  • Hair Love

  • When you spend a chunk of your life working weekends in a hair salon, you can end up being pretty picky about the product you use in your hair. I certainly am. There are many reasons why I choose a product: smell, texture, and how my hair feels the following day. Here are some of my hair-must-haves, and recommendations for you to try this Spring/Summer! ColorProof I have finally found a s[...]
  • Who doesn't love socks?

  • I am a sock fiend. Really and truly. I have a two super organized sock drawers filled to the brim with my favourite dress socks, athletic socks, and tights. Two drawers because on my rushed mornings out the door, I can very easily pick the right drawer (one is for dress socks, one is for leisure or athletic) for the right pair of socks as I run out the door. I have always been a huge sock fan s[...]

  • ABA Toronto

  • It has been years since I have last attended the Allied Beauty Association Toronto show. Gone are the days where I sweat under the lights, praying under my breath some hair stylist i've committed to "modelling " for doesn't go scissor happy on my hair and chop it all off. This year, I was invited to attend the show by the amazing team at VENUS Beauty Supplies, and 2Social  joined in the fun wit[...]
  • New 2Social Office! APRIL!

  • Happy sunny Tuesday! I will take the sun... even if the heat isn't here yet. Last night was a busy first night to Fashion Week, and I realized (after waking up this morning) that I was being reeeeally ambitious thinking I would hit up as many shows as I originally mentioned. Just. Can't. Do. It. An early morning rushing into work, as we prepare to move into our brand, spankin' new office spa[...]

  • Just a few social tips...

  • Here are a few things, as someone who works in social media... and a human being, that I thought I would suggest to people to avoid doing online. Continue at your own risk, these are just my personal suggestions: 1.  Over-complimenting strangers. Compliments are nice. They really, truly are. But maybe just a short and sweet one, then move on, ESPECIALLY if you aren't in a relationship wit[...]
