This post was done in partnership with JUVÉDERM®, and Allergan Canada however as always, all opinions are my own. How can one year be the best and worst in your entire life? I didn’t think it was possible, but between seeing my newborn grow into a 1-year old angel and ending an 11-year marriage (15 years together), 2018 was the best and worst year of my…

Who wouldn’t want one of Tiffany’s little blue boxes for christmas…for Chanukah…or hmmmm…ANY other DAY OF THE YEAR? Do you have a dream like this?

I have a lot of friends and family who love what I do and think it’s really fun, but they would never be caught dead with nailart as part of their manicures (either it’s not their thing or they ‘think’ they are too conservative). I beg to differ. I think anyone can add nailart to their regular manicures, it just has to be done with…

Today was the first snowfall in Toronto. I woke up early, looked outside and the leaves and trees were lined with a gorgeous carpet of white fluffy snow.
