Tis the season of giving (cheesey I know), and I am beyond the moon thankful for all of the amazing opportunities that I’ve been given this year.

Win a Hammam & Gommage Treatment from the Miraj Hammam Spa by Caudalié

December 14, 2015

Kickstarting The Perfect Summer - Life Gets Better

In the midst of all the running around grabbing presents for your loved ones, decorating the tree, shoveling the snow and cooking the turkey, you deserve a little bit of somethin’ somethin’ for all of the blood, sweat, and tears. ‘Tis the season of giving after all, and with all of the giving that you’ve been doing, I think that you deserve to receive something as well!

Kickstarting The Perfect Summer - Life Gets Better

Luckily for you, I’ve teamed up with one of the most luxurious spas in the heart of downtown Toronto, the Miraj Hammam Spa by Caudalié, to give away the Hammam and Gommage treatment! If that sounded familiar with you, no you’re not having déjà vue, that’s the same treatment that I had with my girl Mel Inspired a couple months back.

And trust me when I say this, you’ll want to be pampered once you’re finshed fighting you way through the crowds hunting down the perfect presents! But really though, you should basically be done all of your shopping by now if you read through my Holiday Gift Guides! 😉

Kickstarting The Perfect Summer - Life Gets Better

If you’ve never had a chance to experience the Hammam and Gommage treatment before, then you’re in for a treat! The Middle Eastern based steam and full body exfoliation will be perfect for relaxing your body after a full day of shopping – which you know is inevitable.

The first time I experienced it, I felt so relaxed that I almost fell asleep in the eucalyptus misting chamber. Probably not the healthiest thing to do, but good thing Mel woke me up on time!

Kickstarting The Perfect Summer - Life Gets Better

But the best part is yet to come. Once your pores have opened up nicely and you’ve detoxified your skin with the help of the eucalyptus mist, you’ll be brought into a lower-intensity misting room to get the full body exfoliation of your dreams – the Gommage.

Your dead skin will literally slide off onto the Jerusalen gold marble counters while the masseuse is giving you a rubdown with the black Moroccan soap. Sounds gross, but trust me – it’s worth it!

Kickstarting The Perfect Summer - Life Gets Better

Think you deserve some R&R in the midst of the craziest time of the year? I think so too! So here’s what you have to do to enter (I promise that I’ll make it as easy as possible since you’ve probably got other more important things to do right now):

GIVEAWAY RULES

Kickstarting The Perfect Summer - Life Gets Better

Trust me when I say that I know how stressed you’re probably feeling at this time of the year. Which is why I’m making this the easiest contest of your life to enter!

All you have to do is comment below telling me who you find is the hardest person to shop for, and why the Hamman & Gommage treatment would be life changing for you!

Unfortunately this giveaway is only open to residents of Toronto as the treatment is only offered at the Miraj Hammam Spa by Caudalié at the Shangri-La Hotel Toronto.

But! For those of you who are eligible, you have one week to enter! That means that the winner will be chosen and contacted by December 20th, 2015. This way you’ll be able to indulge in a little bit of pampering before the crazy partying ensues!

Best of luck to everyone that enters! And even if you don’t win, I highly suggest that you pop by the spa to try out some of their treatments. You won’t regret it, I swear!

Decor Solutions For Temporary Spaces + GIVEAWAY

May 26, 2015

When it comes to my room, I’ve always loved decorating it to reflect my personal style – at least I could when I lived in Ottawa. Even though I rotated through the different bedrooms throughout the house, I always knew that I’d be living at the same address, so investing in permanent decor wasn’t that big of an issue.

So when I moved to Toronto and couldn’t bring it all with me, I was torn. How can you decorate a room that may not even exist a year from now? After some hemming and hawing, I came up with a couple temporary solutions that don’t scream “I’m only living here for a couple of months“, but are easy enough to pack up when it’s time to relocate.

90s Nostalgia

January 31, 2015

90s Nostalgia

I’m a product of the 90s and am a prime example of a child who completely played into the trends. Except that at the time I didn’t even realize that they were trends – I guess you could just say that I had eye for what was good (just kidding of course, I was just spoiled and given cool things by my relatives, what kid actually buys themselves anything?). One of my most beloved accessories was this red and yellow, Minnie Mouse, canvas-like knapsack (yes knapsack, not a backpack) that I’d take with me everywhere that I went. Whether it was on a family vacation somewhere or merely to my grandmother’s house for the day, my knapsack was the first thing that I reached for whenever leaving the house.

As the years went on, the knapsack began to show wear and tear, evenually it developped some holes and was pushed to the back of the closet while newer bags took its place. Thinking back to my knapsack, I really wish that I could be back in my room in Ottawa so that I could pull it down from the shelf in my closet and make new memories with it. Sadly I am no longer in Ottawa, nor do I think that a Minnie Mouse knapsack would fit well into my everyday attire.

90s Nostalgia

Luckily for me, I was gifted a pleather knapsack from the lovely ladies of My Femme Crush. Because I tend to be a little bit of a neat freak with my bags (take one look at my purse organizer and you’ll understand), the multiple zip compartments on this knapsack were like a dream come true. I can fit my phone on either of the side pockets, my metro pass and miscellanious lip products on the outermost pockets. The innermost compartment is actually rather spacious and I can fit both my wallet and a water bottle inside comfortably.

Because the knapsack is such a statement piece, I decided to keep the rest of the outfit relatively neutral so that it would get its moment to shine. Sticking to the knapsack’s prescribed black and yellow palette, I wore it with my favorite Aritzia peacoat and a pair of black floral denim from Zara. From far away, my pants appear as if they’re flat black, but close up, there are actually floral imprints that have been coated onto the pants in a waxy overlayer.

If you too are a 90s baby like me then you can have your chance at this cute knapsack too! Make sure to continue till the end of this post to find out how you can win $50 in store credit to their online boutique.
