Are you a fan of Prada Candy? If you love the scent like I do, be prepared for a new addition to the family.
Coming soon to a fragrance counter near you, Prada Candy Florale contains an uplifting mix of floral notes, soft powdery notes, and the warmth
of honey to reflect the scent’s sensual essence. The key notes are limoncello, peonies, musk, benzoin, and caramel.
Not only is the scent captivating, the vibrant pink and white design packaging with delicate organza Prada flowers is worth displaying on any makeup vanity.
Clutches make sense for summer when you’re on the go. These clutches let you travel light but keep all of your absolute essentials from day to night.
Created exclusively in collaboration with the iconic Finnish design house, this Marimekko clutch from Banana Republic celebrates the patterns of summer. It has goldtone hardware and faux-leather trim.
Raffia is synonymous with summer but the Evie Straw Clutch adds drama with patent trim and blinging embellishments lend themselves perfectly to smarter occasions. Inside, there’s ample room for all your party essentials and a detachable gold strap for when you need to be hands free.
Add this black clutch to any outfit, whether boho or chic. It has a rounded flap closure, tassel details, and a chain handle.
Bamboo is one of the hottest textiles right now and why not add a little whimsy in the form of Olive, the French bulldog, to this natural trend. This clutch has a snap flap closure and an open pocket on the inside and outside.
I’ve always wanted to try a face peel, but I’ve heard of and seen the horrors. What sticks in my mind is the SATC episode where Samantha Jones gets a chemical peel on a whim and the results aren’t pretty.
Dr. Anthony Youn recently appeared on the Rachael Ray show in a segment describing foods in your fridge that could combat the signs of aging.
Combining just three ingredients from your fridge can give you a great at home face peel that exfoliates, tightens skin, and improve fine lines. I’ve tried the peel a few times and love the after glow. This peel with fruit acids has instant and long-term effects if you use it at least once (or twice) a week.

When it comes to fashion, dressing for yourself should always be your most important goal.
However, if you’re looking to catch the eye of that special someone of the opposite sex, you may want to avoid these latest fashion turn-offs.
We may think that rompers are the next best thing to sliced bread. But, guys don’t think they look chic. They also wonder whether you’re carrying something extra in the bottom.
Lace Tops and Dresses
We love lace because it makes us feel fancy and special. When it comes to this delicate fabric, men inevitably think of their grannies. It’s just too old-fashioned.
Jackie Kennedy Onassis looked fabulous in her round, dark sunglasses but guys think oversized “celebrity” glasses look like you’re trying way too hard to be cool or you’re just hiding something.
New Face of Something Sweet Fragrance
Canadian cosmetics company, Lise Watier, has just announced the face of its latest fragrance, “Something Sweet.”
The winner of the nationwide online competition is Jessica Kruger, a Simon Fraser University student and the only female member of B.C.’s co-ed wheelchair rugby team.
The 21-year old, who started using a wheelchair at 15 after an accident, is hoping to be a role model to others with disabilities.
We all know sugar is bad for you, but for some people it can be the reason they are either gaining weight or having trouble losing it (if you have an apple-shaped body, you are already prone to weight gain from sugar so listen up).
Jorge Cruise’s latest book, The 100: Count ONLY Sugar Calories and Lose Up to 18 Lbs. in 2 Weeks, has a new approach to calorie consumption.
According to Cruise, all calories are not created equal. Sugar calories are the ones that one will get you into trouble.
You can eat unlimited amount of calories, or freebies, and still lose weight as long as you consume only 100 sugar calories per day (sugar calories include carbs like bread, pasta, as well as starchy vegetables and fruits).
Last month, MAC Cosmetics teased us with the first product, RiRi Woo, from their collaboration with superstar, Rihanna.
The lipstick, which is a gorgeous cool red shade, went on sale on May 2 and sold out in just three hours! Of course, since Rihanna was involved, there was a controversy associated with the lipstick.
Now the Rihanna and MAC collaboration is back with even more: an online exclusive colour collection including special shades created by the singer.
The limited line features multiple lipsticks, a bronzer/blush duo, and golden lustre drops for shimmering skin.
Here’s the details.
The official first trailer for the upcoming movie Diana has been released.
The trailer shows moments from the last two years of Princess Diana’s life from the constant paparazzi harassment to her blossoming relationship with Dodi Fayed.
For many years, Cassandra Bankson was bullied because of her acne.
Life in high school was so bad for Cassandra, that she once had slices of pizza thrown at her by kids who taunted her with the name “Pizza Face.”
Video with 18 Million Viewers
Then the teen made a life-changing decision. She made a video called “Acne Foundation Routine For Flawless Skin,” showing how she covers her blemishes.
Originally, she posted the video hoping that it would help “just one person.” The video has since gained over 18 million views.
Cassandra’s step-by-step video on covering blemishes has given hope to even those with cystic acne. In the video, she shows how to get picture-perfect skin using primer (such as Hourglass Mineral Veil), concealer, and foundation.
Cupcakes Lip Balm Collection
Are you a cupcake fan?
If you don’t live in Vancouver, you may not know that we have some of the best cupcakes in the world.
My favorite cupcake hangout is the retro Cupcakes bakery.
Last time I visited, I noticed that they now carry four delicious lip balms based on some of their all time favorite cupcakes.
Of course, I couldn’t resist trying out a cupcake (or two), but I also picked up their Red Velvet Buttercream lip balm which smells like a delicious mix of cream cheese frosting and cocoa cake.
Not only can you wrangle your sugar fix with this lip balm, you can also hydrate your lips with healing ingredients like Grape Seed Oil, Coconut Oil, and Sweet Almond Oil.
