For years now, I have had a bracelet (my dad gave me), a watch and a long necklace that my friend gave me which I wear with everything. This is the extent of my jewelry. When I venture into downtown Vancouver, I always notice other women wearing layers of necklaces and looking so elegant. It looks simple, but how do I do this without over doing it?
A few years ago, I purchased an eyeshadow brush from a cosmetics counter. Initially, I walked away after my purchase thinking, "I can't believe I just spent that much money on an eyeshadow brush." But then I brought it home and found that it does a much better job and made my life a lot easier than those little applicators that come with the eyeshadow set.
For many, many years if you looked in my bathroom drawer, you would find only three different eyeshadows. An individual pink, brown and navy. I didn't have much variety in my looks and really couldn't have imagined how fun it would be to play with different colours.To learn more about how to use eyeshadows and the latest trends, I spoke with Adi Land.
This year, why not choose an LBD with a little somethin' somethin'. Perhaps it has a plunging neckline, or a cut-out or two. Maybe it's strapless, has a high slit or has only one shoulder. Or maybe, like mine, it exposes a bit of your back. Whichever you decide to wear, make sure the occasion calls for it and that you're not exposing more of yourself than you should.
As the holiday season nears and 2014 comes to an end, we're at the cusp of being inundated with countless lists and predictions about what 2015 holds.

Lately, I have been flipping through fashion magazines and seeing celebrities like Kim Kardashian and others who have lush, gorgeous lashes that just look so amazing there must be something more to their look. Recently, I spoke with Joyce Poon, President & Founder of Noir Lash Lounge and she shared with me her insider tips and tricks to having amazing temporary lashes.
When my hair has the texture of crunch n' munch and is full of static I know winter is here. The colder months bring a new set of challenges for anyone's beauty routine. The drop in temperatures bring dry scalps and too much shampooing can strip away moisture. Fortunately, I spoke with Fabian Lliguin, founder of Rahua and he shared with me some of his top tips for caring for winter hair.
A number of my clients are single women that are either active in the dating scene or just getting started. They typically come to me to help them come up with the perfect first (or second, or third) date look. Wanting to steer them in the right direction, I contacted a dating expert to make sure I was giving them the best advice along with their hot new looks.
Living on the west coast where it is rainy, chilly and dark, it is essential to have a stylish looking fleece that will keep me warm, breath when I am active outdoors and also take me around town. Recently I spoke with Renata Mannino, the Product Line Manager for Arc'teryx. Renata shared with me the current trends for fall fleece and how fleece materials have improved.
Typically when I am rolling into Vancouver, I am wearing the cyclist's uniform of a merino wool top, waterproof jacket and stretchy cycling pants. In the back of my mind, I had always thought of how fantastic it would be if I could arrive to a meeting wearing something stylish and comfortable to ride in. My day has finally come.
Much like many of my clients, I am a woman of many moods. Instead of letting it confuse or overwhelm, why not embrace it and go with it. Below are my picks for how to style just some of the many moods you might be feeling. For each look, I've chosen to go with a simple white T-shirt and jeans to show how easy it is to switch up some basics.
