Salvage Yards: No Shame Reclaim

Colin & Justin | January 28, 2015 | Canada Style
One future. So let's make the best of it, huh? We've long since championed this mantra and, whilst appreciative of regular Canadian furniture outlets, we reserve space in our creative veins for reclamation outlets and salvage yards. Aye, we love to mix past and present.

The Hottest Jewellery Trends For Spring!

Sacha DeVoretz | January 28, 2015 | Canada Style
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?

Can Good Style Change the World?

Ana Wang | January 27, 2015 | Canada Style
With each generation, the adoption of a new style standard represented more than a change in aesthetic tastes as trends represent today in the seesaw of what's-new-what's-next-what's-cool; style has always been tied to some sort of revolution. Today, with nothing that can't be created, nothing that can't be found, nothing that can't be knocked off, we really can have it all.

How To Get The Most From Your Makeup Brushes

Sacha DeVoretz | January 19, 2015 | Canada Style
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.

Melissa Jovanoski | January 18, 2015 | Canada Style
A great way to add some radiance to your skin when you're tired and only half way through your day! Use a dab of chapstick on the tops of your cheekbones as a highlighter. Dabbing a neutral lip gloss on your Cupid's bow will also work wonders, too.

New Year, New Way of Thinking

Colin & Justin | December 31, 2014 | Canada Style
Our grand master plans don't always materialize. But should we call it failure? Not necessarily. We prefer to think that sometimes, just sometimes, we birth plans that are simply too ambitious in the available time frame.

How to Throw Together a Last Minute Holiday Party Outfit

Barbara Aleks Hecht | December 22, 2014 | Canada Style
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.
